'quick-fix cures

From AP and UPI
LOS ANGELES - President Reagan told leaders of
the nation's cities yesterday that the solution to their
grim problems lies in national economic recovery, not
in quick-fix federal bailouts from Washington.
"Have we all become addicted to temporary bailouts
failing to realize that the only answer must be a
restoration of our economy from sea to shining sea?"
the president asked.
"It is time to give up the temporary Band-Aids and
placebos and get on to the business of a real cure."
"ALL THE government boondoggles in the world
won't fix what's ailing us. The only way to cure our
problems is to get the economy moving again."
Reagan received a lukewarm reception as he ad-
dressed the National League of Cities before winding
up a weeklong vacation in California. He flew back to
Washington yesterday evening and arranged to meet
with congressional leaders this morning before em-
barking on his first diplomatic trip to South America.
One thing Reagan must decide before leaving on the
five-day tour is whether to ask Congress to move the
July 1 income tax cut up to Jan. 1 as part of his plan to
stimulate economic recovery. Republican leaders in
Congress have warned the president there is little
bipartisan support for such a plan.
THE CITY officials greeted Reagan with only polite
applause. Before the session Seattle Mayor Charles
Royer, first vice president of the league, said the
:organization wanted to give Reagan the message that
-the nation's cities are hurting and need help.
In his speech, Reagan urged passage of his proposed
urban enterprise zones, along with one of the main
proposals before the lame-duck session of Congress
this week-the nickel-a-gallon gas tax hike to help
rebuild the nation's highways and bridges.
"I have come before you with no magic wand,"
Reagan told hundreds of municipal leaders.
"I am fighting in Washington to reduce, not increase,
the big spending that keeps our federal budget badly
out of balance. Although Americans are laboring un-
der the highest peacetime tax burden in history, their
: money is spent before it even comes in. In a very real'
sense, our coffers are empty."
MEANWHILE in Washington, the president's top
economic advisor, Martin Feldstein, said that a deficit
swelling jobs program or forced cuts in interest rates
could send inflation spiraling upward again and wreck
recovery of necoii n'y "still bottoming out."

pay hike
for TAs
University teaching and staff
assistants will receive this term's long-
awaited pay boosts this month thanks to
a temporary agreement reached Wed-
nesday between the administration and
the Graduate Employees Organization,
the TA union.
In addition, TAs will receive an in-,
creased tuition waiver to make up for
this year's tuition increase, according
to University officials. The pay hike
and tuition waiver combined will
amount to about an extra $400 for the
average TA, said John Forsyth, the
University's negotiator for GEO con-
BOTH THE wage hike and increased
tuition waiver had been held back thus
far this term as a result of the union's
failure last month to ratify a contract it
had negotiated with the University.
The agreement reached last week is
temporary and should not affect new
contract negotiations when the union
and the University resume talks next
Monday, officials on both sides said.
TAs had been threatened with losing
their pay hikes this term-which now
will be implemented retroactively in
their December paychecks-if an
agreement had not been reached by
Dec. 10, Forsyth said.
A communication gap between the
administration and the union between
the time of the contract's defeat in late
October and last Wednesday's meeting
was blamed for the delay. Ad-,
ministrators said they had wanted to
grant the increases, but the contract's
defeat made it impossible.
The increases in both pay and tuition
waivers are similar to those that TAs
have received in past years.

...stays the course
Feldstein gave that assessment as Congress recon-
vened with Democrats advocating public works
programs to put some of the 11.6 million unemployed
americans back to work and leaders of both parties
pressured the Federal Reserve to reduce interest
Feldstein, chairman of Reagan's council of economic
advisers, said unemployment can be brought down
from its post-Depression high of 10.4 percent to 6 per-
cent or 7 percent over the next six years with a steady
economic growth rate of 4 percent.
But he told reporters that growth will occur only if
Congress and the president cut federal budget deficits
during that period to one-fourth of the projection for
1983-from $115 billion to $20 billion.
"I can't see how we can have a healthy recovery un-
less we get those deficits coming down and coming
down sharply," he said.
SENATE Republican Leader Howard Baker of Tenn-
essee said Sunday he sees no willingness by Congress
to cut spending much more and that the onus is on the

available in dorm, rooms

University dormitory residents don't have to rely on
Michigan Bell for long distance telephone service, if they're
willing to pay a little extra for phone equipment.
The University permits students to subscribe to cheaper
long-distance phone services like MCI and SPRINT, as long
as the student is willing to pay for the touch-tone adapter
needed to modify the University's dial phones.
WHILE STUDENTS can subscribe to any long distance
service they choose, members of the Resident Hall
Association have distributed information to the dorms about
hooking up MCI.
MCI will pay RHA $5 for each student who subscribes to the
service this year under an agreement reached last August
with MCI, according to RHA President Brian Woolery.
In addition to paying a subscription fee to MCI, students
must also spend about $40 for a touch-tone adapter, which fits
into the mouthpiece of the dial phones in the dorms.

MCI OFFICIALS stress that they aren't trying to put MCI
in every dorm room - for students who don't make many
calls to cities outside Michigan, the service won't save any
In addition, MCI provides phone service only to certain
cities, so a caller cannot be connected to locations not in
MCI's network.
But for some students, the service can cut 12 percent to 25
percent from Michigan Bell rates during business hours
Monday through Friday, and can save 25 to 45 percent on
calls made between 5 p.m. and 8 a.m. weekdays, according to
MCI spokesmen.
A SPOKESMAN for SPRINT said that while the company
has not actively advertised within dormitories, some dorm
residents do have the system in their rooms or call home via
their parents' SPRINT lines to save money.
Both SPRINT and MCI offer services with a $10 monthly

Although the Michigan State Univer-
sity faculty recently voted, to reject
unionization, some faculty leaders still
see the vote as a step forward.
In the Nov. 17-18 elections, 939 faculty
members voted against any represen-
tation while sme 650 others split their
votes between two possible bargaining
agents - the American Association of
Univerdsity Professors and the MSU
Faculty Associates.
THE VOTE marked the third time in

the past 10 years the MSU faculty has
chosen to forego the collective
bargaining process.
"Although we're disappointed by the
outcome of this election, I feel fairly
good about the level of the campaign,"
said Prof. Philip Korth, president of the
Faculty Associates. The group, which
is an arm of the Michigan Education
Association, received 252 votes. "I
think we've come a long way from 10
years ago," Korth said.
Prof. Philip McGuire stressed the

fact that the AAUP's share of the vote
went up from 15 percent in the 1972 and
1978 elections to 25 percent - or 400
votes - in this election.- "As a group,"
he said, "we in the AAUP feel we made
some gains."
MCGUIRE SAID he thought the in-
creased turnout in this election - 83
percent of those eligible as opposed to
67 percent in the previous votes - made
the difference: "We thought there'd be

the magazine's January edition, is based on responses from
more than 65,300 men and 14,900 women to a questionnaire
that appeared in the magazine two years ago. "The
questionnaire revealed not a profile of the average
American but a picture of the veterans of the sexual
revolution," the magazine said. Unlike sex researcher
Alfred Kinsey, the survey found "no connection between
education and sexual behavior." Kinsey's survey in the
1950s found college-educated people had more sex and more
varied sex than those with less education. The readers' sur-
vey found that 58 percent of the women under 21 said they

*More than half of both men and women had had sex
with more than one person in the same 24-hour period and
about a third had had sex with more than one person at the
same time.

not use birth control, and almost the same percent reported
having had abortions. C
