fear budget will
spur high crime, inflation
WASHINGTON (AP) - The nation's
mayors say President Reagan's latest
round of budget cuts may add up to
more than a million lost jobs, and their
chairman thinks the result could be a
massive crime wave when the unem-
ployed hit the streets this summer.
"The truth is that you are going to see
some kind of reaction to the kinds of
cuts that we're talking about, af-
fecting people," said Mayor Richard
Hatcher, president of the U.S. Con-
ference of Mayors.
"That reaction might not be the
traditional form of riots in the streets,"
said Hatcher, mayor of Gary, Ind. "But
you could just see a tremendous in-
crease in street-type crime, and with all
its attendant costs, both in terms of
dollars and in terms of human suf-
,A BUDGE T ANA LYSIS released by
the mayors conference says the blow to
local governments in lost jobs because
of reduction or elimination of federal
subsidies is two or three times worse
than they had anticipated.
Initially fighting to save 200,000 to
300,000 jobs they thought Reagan was
cutting, the city officials now say the
total loss will be about 1.1 million jobs
- an increase caused by plans to begin
cuts this year and because of future
cuts only now being discovered.
The Census Bureau, in its first look at
who gets government help, reported
yesterday that federal benefit
programs reach one out of every three
THE AGENCY studied non-cash
assistance programs as of 1979, repor-
ting on the recipients of food stamps,
school lunch aid, subsidized housing,
Medicare and Medicaid..
According to the report, these
programs reached 27,190,000
households out of a total of 79,108,000.
Reagan and his advisers contend that
his spending cuts and proposed 30 per-
cent reduction in personal tax rates
over the next three years will cut in-
flation from a current 12 percent rate to
6 percent by 1983, spur a sharp rise in
economic growth, trigger large produc-
tivity improvements and produce a
balanced budget by 1984.
BUT, ECONOMISTS from Wharton
Econometric Forecasting Associates,
Chase Econometrics and Data Resour-
ces Inc. the nation's three largest
economic forecasting firms, told the
House Budget Committee that
Reagan's proposed budget and tax cuts
would lower inflation only modestly at
best, and at worst could result in higher
inflation and interest rates.
At the same, time, Budget Director
David Stockman urged the Senate
Budget Committee to go beyond the
proposed $48.6 billion in 1982 spending
cuts if Congress believes the ad-
ministration's economic forecasts are
However, Stockman rejected as un-
fair proposals by some lawmakers to
reduce the automatic cost-of-living in-
creases paid to recipients of Social
Security and other social welfare
programs. He said these program costs
should be controlled by lowering in-
flation, not by giving retirees less than
full protection from rising prices.
LAWRENCE CHIMERINE of Chase
said the size of the tax cut far outstrips
the budget cuts Congress is likely to ap-
prove. But in contrast to Stockman's
call for deeper budget cuts, the two
economists said the tax cut should be
scaled back or stretched out over a
longer period of time.
Unless the program is changed,
Chimerine said, "there is virtually no
chance" of balancing the budget by 1984
and "the likely effect would be a con-
tinuation of extremely high interest
rates, possibly even higher than we are
Meanwhile, the House and Senate of-
ficially clamped the new mood of
austerity upon themselves, their staffs
judges, and other top federal officials
yesterday by overwhelmingly rejecting
a 16.8 percent pay hike.
A voice vote in the House and
sweeping approval of four separate
resolutions in the Senate were overtly
political gestures. Actually, the same
result would have occurred without any
votes at all - except that wouldn't have
put the two chambers so strongly on
record as biting the bullet.

Law faculty to vote
on open meetings
Sat., Mar. 14
AUd. A, Angell 7, 8:40, and 10:30
open access under the condition that no
faculty member be quoted.
He said that if reporters were allowed
to attribute quotes, faculty members
might be more hesitant to voice un-
popular opinions, knowing that they
would be published. The dean also is
afraid that the informal nature of the.
meetings would be jeopardized because
of the presence of reporters.
"But," Schwartz said, "if you're not
willing to make known the reasons why
you are advocating a policy," that
policy shouldn't have authority.
In a letter distributed to the faculty,
Kiefer and Schwartz explained they
wanted unrestricted access to the
meetings "to open the lines of com-
munication. between students and
faculty by informing students, in a fair
and accurate way, of the substance of
faculty discussions on matters of con-
cern to students."
"THE BASIC message of that letter
is 'trust us,' " said Kiefer, adding that
he feels the Res Gestae has earned this
"They have a lot more to gain by let-
ting us irk than they have: to loose,"
Kiefer said. Schwartz agreed, adding,
"When making decisions that affect
people, you shouldn't shield yourself
from those people."
The faculty meetings are presently
open to three student Faculty Commit-
tee representatives who report on the
meetings to the Law School Student
Senate. These students must leave,
however, when the meetings go into
executive session, which occurs when
matters concerning budget and person-
nel are discussed.
KIEFER added that he would
not be surprised if, while reporters
were present, the faculty members
called more executive sessions.
Both Kiefer and Schwartz suggested
that the faculty might not be practicing
what they preach.
"It's hard to accept (faculty mem-
bers) extolling the virtues of the First
Amendment (in class) but not when it
comes close to home," Schwartz said.
Kiefer noted, "A lot of ideas that are
bandied about in class are now being
put to the test."
