political office; until strong lo-
cal organizations are built up.
As for the, pronises of the in-
coming Carter regime, Hayden
comments, "I voted for Carter
and am optimistic, but I doubt
if any real changes are going
to take place. The difference
between Carter and Ford are
like that between orange and
yellow - certainly not the same
but hardly radically different."
Hayden believes that Carter is
honest and very Democratic,
and sees that the combination
of the two as doomed to failure.
"What very few people realize
is that Carter will be the first
Democratic President to serve
in office in peace time since
Roosevelts first ter."
"The New Deal Democratic
ideas of the thirties have never
really been tested out complete-
ly, in peacetime conditions.
"Carter will have that oppor-
tinity," Hayden believes, "and
when the people realize that it
takes more than just honesty
and the Democratic Party to
straighten out this country's
problems, our grassroots move-
ment will be able to gain
Hayden feels that Carter's
economic policies are doomed to
failure because they don't seek
to alter the basic ideas that are
currently in practice.
"Every person in the United
States has the right to work -
and to find jobs for all those
presently unemployed we have
to utilize new strategies. We
could change the definition of
work to mean shorter work
weeks, job sharing, and human-
izing more jobs. Or shift our
priorities to civilian over mili-
"Too many people are hung-
up on America being number
one," says Hayden. "It's time
we realized that there is no
number one, the world is one,
and we have to get it through
our heads that it makes no dif-
ference whether we can destroy
the Soviet Union 50 or 100
Before running for the Sen-
ate, Hayden admitted that for
the most part he was against
politicians, and at the time or
his defeat he said that he was
sick of them.
"Mosttpoliticians are so swept
up in their own little games that
they have trouble carrying on a
normal conversation.
In Hayden's lecture Wednes-
day night he talked about put-
ting consumer advocates on the
boards of most large and espe-
cially multinational corpora-
"It's about time that this coun-
try set terms for all corpora-
tions to'follow. A new system"
of corporate chartering has to
be instituted."
"Just about every major U.S.
corporation is charted in Dela-
ware, "for the simple reason
that Delaware has the most lax
chartering laws of any state.
This has got to change, with
laws that do not give corpora-
tions unfair tax breaks."
Part of Hayden's grassroots
movement involves training
workers to be able to organize
movements in their own com-
munities. They literally have in-
stituted training camps that use
encounter techniques, to teach
trainees, in order to "put con-
fident people to work where be-
fore there were only concerned
Hayden has also organized
several community action
groups into what he calls "The
California Campaign for Eco-
nomic Democracy."
"This is a growing coalition,"
said Hayden. "People are find-

ing out that by getting out and
voting innumbers"they can
change the political system."
that there is little differ-
ence between hisgrassroots
movement and the student
movement of the 6's.
"The situation has merely
grown. The students were di-
rectly affected by the war and
they voiced their opinions in the
only way they could-they were
denied the right to vote. The
grassroots movement concerns
everyone; no one can live out-
side the economy."
Hayden has found that college
audiences today are just as re-
ceptive as those during the anti-
war movement. An equal re-
sponse has been received off-
campus, possibly showing a
trend to the left among the
"older generation,"
Today Hayden earns his liv-
ing from lectures and free-lance
writing. When not on the road
he lives in California with his
wife, Jane Fonda.
Home life for Hayden is inter-
woven and integrated with his
occupation. "I don't have a nine
to five job where I can come
home and leave the office"be-
hind me. I work in my house

It was Thanksgiving Day,
1968, he said, and Jimmy was
one of four persons canvassing
door-to-door in Springfield,
Mass. on behalf of the Baptist
Church. As it turned out, how-
ever, Massachusetts had a law
against such activity, so the
cops hauled the future Presi-
dent of the United States and
his friends down to the station,
where theytalkedbthemselves'
out of further trouble.
And so The Complainers, The
Neck Cr"aners, The Tree People,
The Southerners and all the
rest listened to their new chief
executive, listened as he asked
them to become part of his
presidency. "Your strength can
compensate for my weakness,"
he said in his short, simple
speech. "Your wisdom can help
to minimize my mistakes."

Probably not. All things considered you do
what you do pretty doggone well. After all, no one
has taken your job. And you're eating regularly.
But have you ever considered what doing your
job just a little better might mean?
Money. Cold hard coin of the realm.
If each of us cared just a smidge more about
what we do for a living, we could actually turn that
inflationary spiral around. Better products, better
service and better management would mean savings
for all of us. Savings of much of the cash and frayed
nerves it's costing us now for repairs'and inefficiency.
Point two..By taking more pride in our work
we'll more than likely see America regaining its
strength in the competitive world trade arena. When
the balance of payments swings our way again we'll
all be better off economically.
So you see-the only person who can really
do what you do any betteris you.
