Cuts won't save
By ELIZABETH CHARNOCK
In his State of the Union address Wed-
nesday, President Reagan declared
"America is back - standing tall." He
said he would try to cut the massive
federal deficit by cutting spending, and
spurned a tax increase as "a Band-Aid
But University economist Thomas
:Juster said Americans will be in for a
;short recovery and a long illness unless
Reagan tempers his optimism and
:makes some politically unpopular
Juster, director of the University's
Institute for Social Research said
"Reagan's position is inconsistent
with real solutions to the deficit
problem." The deficit next year is ex-
pected to reach $200 billion.
JUSTER said he thinks that the
economic recovery will be derailed in
t985 unless the government adopts a
revenue increasing policy 'such as
Although Juster said he supports
Reagan's bi-partisan commission to cut
government spending, he added they
will only be effective if "everything is
fair game - including proposals to
raise taxes or cut the defense depar-
In the autumn edition of "Economic
Outlook USA," Juster writes that
escalating interest rates "cripple the
houseing and car markets and weaken
private business investment demand."
Even if the soaring rates do not abort
the recovery, he predicts they will
cause lopsided development which
benefits certain areas such as the
military, perishable goods industries,
and services, at the expense of heavy
industry and housing.
Richard Barfield, also an economist
at the institute, recently polled mem-
bers of the National Association of
Business Economists and found 40 per-
cent expected the recovery to be cut
short. Of these, over 40 percent said the
large expected deficits would cut short
the recovery, while just under 40 per-
cent said the high interest rates were to

PSN deofines student power at the 'U'
By ROBERT SCHWARTZ
After posing as CIA agents trying to
"protect" students interviewing with a
cruise missile engine manufacturer
from the bad influences of the
Progressive Network, PSN members
held a more serious talk yesterday on
"Student Power in the '80s."
Spearing before a small group at the
Guild House, PSN co-founder Tom
Marx said "maybe I haven't stopped
the world, but at least I've gotten
people thinking, and that's part of our
LAST November, the group did stop
things - on campus at least - with a
48-hour lab blockade to protest military
research. And although Marx admitted
that/ PSN will always be a- "vocal
minority" he said the blockade showed
the power of students who upset the
"I think a change was made there;
students were the driving force," he
said. "There would probably be more
blatant research (at the University) if
the students did not protest."
STEVE AUSTIN, a sophomore in the
School of Natural Resources who also
participated in the sit-in, said he is con-
cerned that many students pay no at-
tention to such issues as military
"Most people go through here without
ever knowing what's going on," he said.
The group's response to such issues
has been a radical one - with sit-ins,
candlelight marches in front of the
ROTC building, and sometimesraucous
"THEY'RE (the administration) not
going to give you anything, you have to
take it," explained Marx.
Austin and Marx said they worry
that students' ability to dissent may be
restricted by the University's proposed
code for non-academic conduct, which
among other things, would ban any in-
terference with "a normal University
. activity." Austin called the code
"an infringement on students' power.
