Feds told to fight inflation, take pay cut

_. .. .

w "

WASHINGTON (AP) - High-ranking
federal officials should set an example
in fighting inflation by cutting their own
pay, former Federal Reserve Chair-
man Arthur Burns said yesterday.
In a written statement to the Senate
Banking Committee, Burns advoated
a voluntary 10 per cent pay cut for the
President, all his appointees and mem-
bers of Congress. He also proposed a
two-year pay freeze for top corporate
executives and pay raises for federal
employees of only half of what it would
take for them to keep pace with pay in
private industry.
SEN. WILLIAM Proxmire (D-Wis.),
the committee chairman, who is con-
sidering introducing pay-cut
legislation, commented: "I wouldn't
hold my breath until all those are im-
plemented, especially Congress cutting
its salary by 10per cent."
Burns, now associated with the
American Enterprise Institute, a
Washington research organization, had

been asked for suggestions on how the
government should fight inflation. His
statement emphasized the same theme
that he preached while he ran the
Federal Reserve: government policies
are largely to blame for inflation.
"When the federal government runs a
deficity, it pumps more money into the
pocketbooks of people than it takes
out," Burns wrote. "That has always
been a major cause of inflation, and this
process has lately been speeded up."
Burns ticked off a list of recent
government actions that he considers
inflationary: an increased minimum
wage, higher Social Security taxes,
.paying farmers to cut production, im-
port restrictions on sensitive products,
consumer-protection legislation and a
tough environmental policy.
He praised Carter's decision to lower
a proposed tax cut. But overall, Burns
said, "the policies thus- far announced
by the administration fall short of being
the strong and credible anti-inflation
program that our country needs."

'When the federal gov-
ernment runs a deficit, it
pumps more money into
the pocketbooks of people
than it takes out.'

BOLINGBROOK, Ill. - When 186
high school students rode the ferris
wheel, the roller coaster and other rides
at "Old Chicago" amusement park
recently, they carried angle-finders,
protractors and stopwatches instead of
cotton candy and popcorn.
The amusement park trip last week
was part of their final exam in physics
class at Barrington High School in this
south Chicago suburb, and the
questions included:
"WHAT CAUSES the eerie feeling in
the pit of your stomach on the way down
from the top of the wheel" on the Ferris
"What prevents you from falling
when the floor disappears" from The
"During a collision, is kinetic energy
always conserved" on the Bumper
"WHY DO passengers 'lunge ahead' at
the bottom of the slide" on the Log
"The outing was a heck of a
motivator, and it let them apply the
principles they learned in the
classroom to a real-life situation,"
physics teacher Chris Chiaverina said.
Before working out their acceleration
down the roller coaster loop's first
drop, the students had to choose the
surveying technique of triangulation or
some other means to figure out the
hill's height.
"THEY ALSO were warned that
dropping or throwing objects off the
roller coaster, the Roundup Cat or other
rides so as to determine trajectory was
strictly forbidden," said Chiaverina.
When their outing was over, they
didn't laugh all the way back to the
classroom. The test questions were too
Some of the other questions included:
YO YO, a centrifugal chair ride - "If
the chain supporting your chair should
break when the angle of the chain from
horizontal is at its minimum value,
what would be the subsequent motion of
the chair and yourself?"
Rotor - "Determine the linear speed,
and centripetal acceleration of an in-
- dividual-atthe edge-of the rotor."-"-

Chicago Cat Roller - "Determine the
work done against friction as a car on
the coaster moves from its highest
elevation, down the steepest incline and
back up to a second high plateau."
Grading of the test papers has not
been completed.

familiar life on earth would cease to
exist. The layer absorbs most of a flood
of deadly ultra-violet radiation from the
sun, according to National Geographic.
