LANSING (AP)-A computer
model has concluded that 1.1
million more civilians would be
employed if military spending
above the inflation rate had been
channeled elsewhere during Pres-
ident Reagan's first term.
A study, called "The Empty
Pork Barrel," was released Monday
by Employment Research Asso-
ciates, a non-profit consulting firm
specializing in analyzing govern-
ment policies on the U. S.
economy.
About 8.37 million jobs would
have been generated between 1981
and 1985 if the $190 billion in
defense increases had been spent on
normal economic activities, the

study said. The extra defense
spending generated 7.22 million
jobs, the report said.
Michigan suffered a net civilian
job loss of 166,000 in the com-
puterized model.
"The huge military buildup was
very bad for the economy," said
Marion Anderson, a member of the
research team.
The study said 15 states,
including California, Alabama, Vir-
ginia,and Massachusetts, benefited

from the buildup, while 35 states
lost out.
Anderson first told reporters at a
news conference the study was not
commissioned, but later told the
Associated Press that it was paid for
by grants from "five or six small
foundations," most of which she
refused to name.
The only supporter she was
willing to name was the Veatch
Program, an arm of the North
Shore Unitarian Society on Long
Island, N. Y.

"Again more inaccuracies,"
Pursell said in his rebuttal. "Why

BAKER also attacked Pursell's
civil rights record, noting his
opposition to making a national

Michigan law by failing to report
four out of every five felony traffic

office said in a report released
yesterday.
Nearly one out of every two
felony drunken driving convictions
went unreported, the report said.
Deputy Secretary of State Dennis

Neuner said the secretary of state's
office was upset at the low reporting
rate.
"It seriously hinders our ability
to take drunk drivers off the road,"
he said.
The secretary of state's office

"Incomplete driving records have
resulted in offenders not receiving

driving records," the auditor wrote.

Lorch wrote that the column is
"iireplaceable and well made, whose

THE OTHER column was
originally part of Detroit's Bank of

from the wrecking company when
the bank was to be destroyed. The

first monumental bank structures

architecture, which took place in

process of constructing these types
