It was cloudy and breezy on the campus and appropriate for an Earth Day observance there was a strong smell of manure from a nearby farm.

Kids chased red balloons which declared 'Stop the and gliders frolicked over the college. At one of the outdoor booths, a guy sold buttons with slogans like 'Nuclear war can ruin your whole day' and 'A woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle'. Paxton said when President Reagan addressed "lumber magnates" on the West Coast recently, there was a rumor that "in his honor a tsee was killed and eaten." Commoner offered a similar jab at the president. He said after Reagan's campaign claim that trees caused air pollution, a sign appeared on a tree at a college campus. It stated: "Chop me down before I kill again." A good public relations man might have turned Barry Commoner into a prophet or miracle worker yesterday afternoon.

The sun broke through the clouds when he got up and started speaking about solar power, and went back behind them when he ended his speech. 618 Sizes 36 to 46 E3EAUAE5TEE3S FOR GUYS GALS JORDaCHE fl 95 seT COI1VERSG WHITE LEATHER HEAVYWEIGHT I FLARES OR STRAIGHT LEG PREWASHED UNWASHED OR CORDUROY used for energy "The energy system is literally destroying the economy it is supposed to serve," said Commoner. When so much is being spent for energy, he feels, not enough can be invested in ways which create new jobs. The solution, he said, is to find a form of energy which will not become more expensive as its availability is reduced. "Solar energy is not influenced by how much or how little we use," said Commoner.

"We have no influence on the sun." He acknowledged that many people still think practical applications of solar energy are "pie in the sky." But he said solar energy can be incorporated into an automobile, and not by putting a sail on it. "You can go to Brazil and buy a solar Ford today," said Commoner. The solar aspect is in the fuel using sunshine to grow grains which can be converted into alcohol to run cars. "If you run a car on alcohol, you've got a solar car." He said enough alcohol fuel could be created from crops and scrap paper to run all the automobiles in the country. He said that fuel would be more efficient, and American farmers could double their profits.

He said its not true that growing crops for alcohol would result in food shortages because much of what's left after the fuel is made can still be used as feed for livestock. "We can replace all the gasoline now used and put our entire transportation system on solar energy," said Commoner. "So why not do it? Mr. Reagan believes in a free market. We have no control over the kinds of cars built.

We don't control this country's economy." He said the primary business of U.S. auto industry isn't making cars, "it's making He claimed that during the last 10 years the improvement in productivity in the United States' economy was less than that of any other industrialized nation in the world and said that is because this country spends too much on the military. He said if Boeing sells a 747 to American Airlines, that is an investment which benefits the economy. But if the same aircraft is sold to the Air Force, "if we're lucky it does nothing, it produces nothing." He said the military budget is destroying the economy, just as if the factories and means of production were being smashed with a hammer. "Dr.

"The fundamental political problem in this country, particularly under Mr. Reagan, is that you and I have no influence on the system of production," said Commoner. "Under our economic system we democratically have no right to determine what is produced and how it is produced." He said private concerns are guided by a single principle: Bigger profits.

The result, he said, is pollution, unemployment, a decline in the economy, and a constant danger of nuclear war. W5 4 lb. Polyfill Washable BASEBALL SHIRTS Many Colors.

Most of them, hi said, were black, Asiatic and Hispanic. He also said almost every one of those wars was fought with American weapons and ideologies on one side, and Soviet weapons and ideologies on the other. He said S500 billion a year is spent on arms all over the world, which prevents the build up of the economies of Third World nations. Paxton is a draws political cartoons with music. He promised to sing a couple songs "which have been keeping me off the White House guest list for years now." Reg.

He said he wants to keep up the momentum of his Citizens Party, which is known as the Consumer Party in Pennsylvania. The scientist and educator said industrial concentration on the preparation for war and the continued reliance on non-renewable forms of energy are "cannibalizing" the nation's economy. He said because the country relies on non-renewable forms of energy oil, coal, natural gas and uranium for 95 percent of its power, more than a third of its capital has to be BACKPACKERS HIKING BOOTS 15' 17' s2895 UNASSEMBLED Use Our Lay a way Plan Please See EARTH Page B14 Size 12x9 LJ st Size 4 to 1 1 SALE 15.99 Stepping Stones by Stride Rite SPORT SOCK SPECIAL White Stag Parkdale Family Tents pr.
