From bringing you our views
But we'll be back next Tuesday
with the info we rake
So in the meantime, readers
Have a nice holiday break!

Mayor
Aerosols
to carry
ecological,
WASHINGTON (AP) - The
government yesterday took its
second step within 24 hours to
phase out fluorocarbon aerosols,
this time by announcing an in-
terim requirement that your
spray antiperspirant or perfume_
be labeled as hazardous to
earth.
In what surely ranks as the
most unique health warning ev-
er demanded of consumer pro-
ducts, that can of Right Guard
- and virtually all other aero-
sol items in the cosmetic and
personal care market - would
have to carry this caveat:
W A R N I N G: Contains a
chlorofluorocarbon that may
harm the public health and en-
vironment by reducing oz~one .
in the upper atmosphere."
The rule, not yet final, was
announced by the Food and
Drug Administration, (FDA)
which claims regulatory juris-
diction over 80 per cent of the
aerosol products that now con-
tain fluorocarbons, the pres-
surized gases that act as the
spray propellants. More than
a billion cans of such items are
sold every year.
On Monday, the Consumer
Product Safety Commission an-
nounced it has, begun proceed-
ings to flatly ban fluorocarbons JO1N

Wheeler to decide
candidacy by Dec.
By MIKE NORTON
Mayor Albert Wheeler said last night he was "about
98 per cent committed" to running for a second term
in the April city elections.
Wheeler told the gathering of city Democrats at the Ann
Arbor Community Center, that he was "very close to making
an announcement" but was holding back for the moment be-
cause of personal considerations.
THE MAYOR ALSO SAID he was concerned about keeping
the party organization united behind him "so I'm not defeated
before I begin."
Referring to rumors of opposition to his candidacy within
the Democratic ranks, Wheeler said: "I would walk out as
a candidate if I thought my running would cause a rift in
the party."
Strong pressure was brought to bear on the mayor to make
a firm commitment at the meeting, but he said he would an-
nounce his candidacy sometime during the first week of De-
cember.
THE WARD SLATES for most
of the upcoming City Council
races were, however, virtually
completed last night. .
In the First Ward, incumbent
Council member Liz Keogh an-
nounced she would not run for
re-election next year. Keogh
faced serious opposition from
within her ward organization,
and her decision came only as
a mild surprise to the gather-
ing.
"I feel good about this;" said
Keogh after making her an-
nouncement. "I don't need to
put up with thisdkind ofshit
for two more years."
TWO CONTENDERS have em-
..erged to fill the void left by
Keogh's withdrawal. ~.

AIMS FOR 6.3 PER CENT:

Carter targ et-s unemployment

Daily Photo by CHRISTINA SCHNEIDER
McCracken

By AP and Reuter
WASHINGTON - President-
elect Jimmy Carter said yester-
day that he intends to reduce
unemployment to 6.5 per cent
and to boost the nation's eco-
nomic growth rate to six per
cent in his administration's first
year.
Carter told a news conference
at the Capitol that Chairman
Arthur Burns of the Federal
Reserve Board told him at a
meeting Monday that both goals
strike him as "reasonable."
THE NATIONAL growth rate
heas ,been fixed at an annual in-
crease of just over four per
cent while unemployment has
hovered around eight per- cent
for much of the past year.
On foreign affairs, he said
that economic considerations
would play a much greater role
in international concepts during
his presidency.
"I do see an inexorable in-
crease in the importance of eco-
nomics as an aspect of our
foreign policy," Carter said. He
added he would involve the sec-
retary of the treasury in stra-
tegic policy decisions and in
National Security Council meet-
ings and will select an expert
in international economics to be
one of the three members of
his Council of Economic Advis-
ers.
CARTER MADE HIS corn-
ments at the half-wav noint in
a fast-naced day of conferences
with the Democratic and Re-
nublican leaders of Congress.
On Monday he had met with
President Ford and top offic-
iahl of the Ford administration.
The onestioning turned to the
nossibility of a tax cut next
year and Carter said "it would

be a mistake to presuppose a
tax cut would be my approach
to stimulating the economy."
He said that a wide range of
options are open to him and he
will not attempt to make a
choice among, them until he re-
views January's economic in-
dicators.
CARTER AND BURNS have
not always agreed on what
course the nation's monetary
policy should take, but Carter

McCracken hails
Carter tax plan'
By ANN MARIE LIPINSKI
University Business Prof. Paul McCracken said yes-
terday he approved of tax reductions under consideration by
president-elect Jimmy Carter.
But the former economic advisor to President Richard
Nixon suggested Carter "consign his suggestion about asking
for standby wage and price controls to the same trash can
that much campaign rhetoric goes to after an election."
McCRACKEN, ADDRESSING an audience of several
hundred at the School of Business Administration, said he did
not know of one historical instance where wage and price
controls had worked successfully, adding that the "tempta-
