Inflation at

13%;

target f
complain~ts
By MARK GINDIN
Installing windows that don't leak as
much heat. It seemed like such a good
way to save money without getting
anyone mad.
But the University Housing Division
has learned once again that it's im-
possible to please everyone.
First, students in Stockwell and
Mosher-Jordan complained that the
new windows would ruin the architec-
tural character of the stately dor-
mitories.
THEN STUDENTS in Alice Lloyd
said they became sick after inhaling
fumes from caulking around the new
windows.
And the housing division only wanted
to waste less heat, so room and board
increases would not have to be quite so
steep.
Alice Lloyd residents yesterday
described the smell of the caulking as
"obnoxious" and some said they had
experienced headaches and
lightheadedness as a result of the smell.
ALICE LLOYD building .director
David Schoem sent a letter to dorm
residents on Wednesday explaining that
the odor, which lasts 24 to 48 hours after
the window is caulked, can cause
headaches, irritated eyes, and a
nauseous feeling in people who are sen-
sitive to it.
The effects are not lasting, the letter
said, adding that residents who do not
wish to remain in their rooms will be
provided with alternative sleeping
arrangements. The letter also warned
students not to leave food exposed in the
room.
Students interviewed at the residence
hall last night said that no one had
taken advantage of the alternative
sleeping arrangements-beds set up in
two lounges-but several said they
stayed with friends during the nights
the odor was strong.
SINCE THE middle of the summer,
the windows in Betsy Barbour, Helen
Newberry, and Couzens Halls have
been replaced with double-paned
energy-efficient windows, according to
the University Housing Coordinator of

From AP and UPI
WASHINGTON-Inflation bounded
back into the 13 percent annual range in
September, handing Ronald Reagan
new ammunition to attack President
Carter's management of the economy.
Jody Powell, the president's chief
spokesman, said the one percent jump
in consumer prices cannot be taken as
"an indication of failure of the anti-in-
flation effort."
AND CARTER said the increase in
inflation "confirms the wisdom of our
policy of holding down government
spending and totally opposing the elec-
tion-year tax cut proposed by the
Republicans."
In its last report on inflation before
the Nov. 4 election, the Labor Depar-
tment said yesterday that two months
of moderating consumer prices were
reversed by the one percent jump in
September. A steep rise in food prices
led the way.
Prices also showed larger increases
across an array of goods and services,
from housing to entertainment, but
gasoline prices declined for a fifth
straight month.
REAGAN, WHO was preparing a
television address on the economy as
the figures were issued, released a
statement saying the surge in inflation
demonstrates the administration's "ut-
ter failure" in dealing with soaring
prices. He predicted that "inflation will
become a permanent way of life' if
Carter wins re-election.
But Powell told reporters that "you
cannot honestly call this a failure, one
month's CPI, an indication of failure of
the anti-inflation effort." He said the
figures only show Carter was correct in*
opposing Republican proposals for an
income tax' cut. But he said the
president's own tax cut plan would not
be inflationary.
In his statenent, Carter criticized the

Carter Reagan
... defends economic program ... blames Carter administration

Republican tax cut plan, saying it
would "jeopardize all the progress we
have made in dampening inflation.
Enacting it would be like pouring
gasoline on a smouldering fire."
HE SAID THE new inflation figures
are a warning that "we must not add to
inflationary pressures; we must not
overstimulate the economy;.we must
not permit massive across-the-board
tax reductions, and we must not add to
federal deficits."
Carter said that on Election Day,
voters "must choose between my
policies, which will build our country's
economic strength and actually work to
reduce inflation-that lay the- foun-
dation of a true economic renaissance
in America-or those which will squan-
der our hopes on economic voodoo."
When computed at a compounded an-
nual rate, the September increase

amounted to 12.7 percent. That was
significantly above the 8.6 annual rate
posted in August, but far less than the
nearly 20 percent rate recorded early in
the year.
IN A SEPARATE report, the gover-
nment said workers' real buying power
fell in September for the first time in
three months because of the higher in-
flation rate. Spendable earnings fell 0.4
percent for the month and declined 6.7
percent in the past year, the gover-
nment said.
September's price rise, if continued
for a full year, would produce an in-
flation rate of 12.7 percent. Coinciden-
tally, that also is the actual inflation
rate in the 12 months since September
1979. Since January, prices have in-
creased 9 percent.

according to a newspaper report from Soviet Estonia. The

said she did not wish to speak with him, according to
Lovelace. "He told me if I wouldn't let him talk to her he
would show me something I had never seen before," said
Lovelace. The next day the company received deliveries
from three different pizza parlors, and five different
florists, according to Lovelace. By the 20th things got really

two janitorial outfits and a dry cleaning company came,"
Lovelace said. The deliveries are so frequent and the

sales aren't going too well in Ken's Magic Shop in Fair

laugh at the Khomeini mask but don't want them. They're
afraid they will get shot," Noble said. "I don't think it's in
good taste, but I rent them," he added. The masks are
made by a French firm which manufactures masks of
other prominent political figures as well. Dl
