Purdy, his wife Betty, By JOHN CUNNIFF AP Business Analyst NEW YORK (AP) — The question of just how low we can push unemployment before producing an unacceptable rate of inflation is becoming one of the overriding issues of the debate between Democrats and Republicans. Both agree that there is a limit. Both agree that there comes a point beyond which the only workers remaining are those of low productivity, and the only available plant capacity is of the same marginal quality. Nobody seems able to demonstrate at what point the inflationary line is crossed. Four per cent? Six per cent? The answer, so important in terms of prices and jobs, is debatable, and probably will remain so in view of the current poor state of our knowledge. Not only is there considerable question about the real rate of unemployment — some say the statistics overstate the case, some maintain it understates — but there is uncertainty also about the level of available plant capacity. The latter measurement, less well known to the general public than the jobless rate, is devised to provide federal and private officials with an understanding of how near capacity is the nation's industrial machinery. To encourage further production when • plant utilization is near capacity is to invite shortages and inflation. To attempt to curtail plant expansion when more space is needed also flirts with those maladies. Are we sure, therefore, that we know when we are nearing capacity? No, we are not. Several years ago Rinfret because some customers Associates, a consulting maintained the figures were organization, began wrong, partly because their questioning the figures, partly own surveys were in disagreement. The matter was brought to the attention of the Fed, to the secretary of commerce and to other public officials. The Fed's figures showed there was a lot more capacity to be used than really existed, said Pierre Rinfret. The General Accounting Office began an investigation into the manner in which the Fed and private concerns measured capacity because, inevitably, wrong figures mean wrong policy. On June 26,1976, a governor of the Federal Reserve System, Henry C. Wallich, conceded in a speech before the Western Economic Association that a review of the figures showed that indeed they were wrong. "Thus it happened that in 1973," said Wallich, "when the Federal Reserve and McGraw indexes (McGraw-Hill) still seemed to signal ample capacity in most lines, we were, in fact, experiencing severe bottlenecks and were very much surprised thereby *, If the Fed had known the true situation, in all probability the nation's monetary policy and private investment strategies would have been changed.

The withdrawal of services effective Aug. 28, is for 30 days, according to meat grading officials in USDA's Agricultural Marketing Serfice (AMS). However, 27 days of the withdrawal period have been suspended as part of a consent order agreed to by National Beef Packing Co. If the terms of the consent order are violated within one year, AMS officials said, the suspended portion of the 30- day withdrawal of services will be reinstituted. Company officials consented to the order after AMS charged that company employees illegally removed yield grade stamps from wholesale beef cuts at the Liberal plant. In agreeing to the consent order, the meatpacking firm neither admitted nor denied the AMS charges. ' Under the terms of the order, the company agreed to use the combination quality and yield grade roller bratfds and is prohibited from removing any yield grade stamps from wholesale cuts, regardless of the extent of trimming, for 60 days. During this 60-day period, the company must develop an affirmative action plan designed to prevent a recurrence of the alleged violation.
