'U' prof

economucs
association

By JIM DAVIS
University Economics Prof. Gardner Ackley recently was
elected president of the 20,000 member American Economics
Association for 1981.
Ackley, 65, served as an economic advisor during both the
Kennedy and Johnson administrations before returning to his
position at the University in 1969.
THE ASSOCIATION president's major responsibility,
Ackley said, is organizing an "intense" economics conven-
tion each December which takes a critical look at issues such.
as taxcuts, the budget, and agricultural prices.
Ackley's new post will involve coordinating exchange
programs with China and Russia, advising the government,
forming summer training programs for minority and foreign
graduate students, and publishing the highly-acclaimed
American Economics Review.

Ackley worked during World War II and the Korean War in
the government's Price Control Agency setting price
ceilings.
DURING HIS TENURE under Kennedy and Johnson,
Ackley said his advisory capacity "had considerable effect
on all phases of it (economic policies)."
"Poverty programs started under Kennedy," he said.
"Our main function was informing the president on what was
going on in the economy."
During the Nixon administration, Ackley was U.S. am-
bassador to Italy. "I'm an old Italian from way back and
used to be an expert on the Italian economy," said Ackley. He
was ambassador for just under two years before returning to
the University in 1969.
"I ENJOY both (government and university positions).
They have supported each other and made me a better civil
servant and academian," said Ackley.

From AP and UPI
WASHINGTON-Facing a verdict by
American voters on his performance in
office, President Carter is awaiting
release today of a government report
on consumer prices amid indications
the figures won't give him much to brag
about in the waning days of the cam-
paign.
The Consumer Price Index for Sep-
tember is the last major economic news
before Election Day, and most experts,
including Carter's chief inflation ad-
viser, Alfred Kahn, expect at least an
0.7 percent increase in the inflation
rate.
Ronald Reagan predicted yesterday
it will reflect the "misery and despair"
people are suffering from inflation.
IN ADDITION, Republican national
chairman Bill Brock said he has "grave
concern" that the numbers will be
changed to make President Carter look
better.
A Labor Department economist said

the CPI issued today will be calculated
in the usual way. Earlier this month,
when the government issued its
producer price index, it made a one-
time-only adjustment that caused the
index to show prices falling slightly, in-
stead of rising 0.4 percent as they
otherwise would have.
BROCK SAID in a statement yester-.
day that the change, coming just a
month before the election, amounted to
"jimmying" the figures.
Carter campaign officials and White
House aides are understandably ner-
vous about the reaction of the voters to
the last batch of inflation figures before
the election.
"Some people will say inflation's not
as bad as it was, but, others will say we
really haven't solved the fundamental
problem," said one Carter aide who
asked not to be identified. But on balan-
ce, he said, the new economic report
probably is going to be "injurious" to
the Carter re-election efforL.

COr4qRESSMAN CARL PURSELL
MAKING A REAL DIFFERENCE

LOS ANGELES (UPI)-The friend of
convicted Hillside Strangler Kenneth
Bianchi says the couple plans to wed in
March and eventually have a daughter,
it was reported yesterday.
Veronica Lynn Compton, 24, who an-
nounced the engagement during a jail
interview with the Los Angeles Herald
Examiner, has been charged with at-
tempting a "copycat" strangling to
trick authorities into believing Bianchi
is innocent.
"I MISS HIM every second, but I
know that everything will work out,"
said the self-described actress and
playwright. "I was raised to believe
that justice will be done. I was raised to
believe good will come out in the end."
Compton, who has a 7-year-old son by
a previous marriage, is fighting ex-
tradition to Washington state where she

is charged with the attempted murder'
of a Bellingham woman in what'
authorities say was an effort to provide
an alibi for Bianchi.
Bianchi, 28, proposed after he was
jailed, Compton said in the interview,
adding, "We plan tomarry on March f
and then have a little girl."
It was reported this week that Biani-
chi had recanted his confession to
several of the Hillside Strangler mur-
ders, but authorities say he would still'
be the key witness against his cousin,
Angelo Bouno, in the case.
Bianchi pleaded guilty to killing two
women in Bellingham and five in Los
Angeles and promised to testify truth-
fully against Buono in exchange for a
life sentence that spared him from the
possibility of the gas chamber.
