Campus organizations, planning
to co-sponsor a movie this semes-
ter with the Student Legislature's
Cinema Guild (formerly the Art
Cinema League), must have their
petitions into the SL office by Fri-
day, Dick Krauss, manager of the
Cinema Guild, announced yester-
Krauss explained that organiza-
tions applying for co-sponsorship
must be in good financial condi-
tion and must indicate a willing-
ness to assume its share of any
liabilities involved.
Selection of the co-sponsors
from the qualifying groups will be
based upon the degree and man-

ner in which the activities of the
group affect the student body,
the relative need for funds of the
group, and the past record of the
group in similar undertakings.
Petitions may be obtained at
the SL office in the Administra-
tion Building.
The Art Cinema League was
taken over by SL last semester,
and renamed the Cinema Guild.-

College of Pharmacy students

The faculty of the college will

of both curricular and extra-

Present consumer credit con-
trols, recently reimposed by the
Federal Reserve Board,. may turn
out to be ineffective in curbing
spending according to Prof. Paul
W. McCracken of the School of
Business Administration.
Prof. McCracken, speaking be-
fore the Economics Club, ex-
plainedhthat the credit regula-
tions which were reimposed are
not much tighter than those that
had already been in general prac-
ON THE OTHER hand, many
people felt that these controls
were perhaps a prelude to new
and more sweeping curbs on con-
sumer credit. Thus there has been
a great tendency for the consumer
to buy on credit now while it is
still possible. This has gone a
long way towards neutralizing
any beneficial effects the new
controls may have had, Prof. Mc-
Cracken declared.
But Prof. McCracken empha-
sized that something must be
done to curb spending. He fa-
vored a broad system of indirect
controls rather than direct war-
time controls. Our defense budget
may rise to $30 billion, but this
still is a far cry from the $160
billion outlay under a full war
economy. Obviously something
less than full '*artime control
methods is in order, he stressed.
A primary reason for controls
is to curb spending. Thus far,
Prof. McCracken remarked,
there has been little concrete
action taken by the government
towards this end.
Prof. McCracken, pointed out
that people cashing in bonds and
bank accounts has resulted in an
important additional source of
spending. We must find a way
to make liquid assets, particularly
savings bonds, more attractive, he
To do this; there should be
a savings bond drive similar to
those held during the war. Prof.
McCracken regretted that four
months have gone by since the
outbreak of the Korean war with-
out a drive of this sort.
