Economist Newspapers, Wednesday, March 16.1977 SR Page 3 Murphy pushes for TV 'dumping' probe committee to elect Kellam in 18th Rep. Morgan Murphy (D- 2nd) has formally requested Atty. Gen. Griffin Bell to investigate charges that the Japanese are "dumping" television sets in the U S , Murphy called for a full inquiry into the allegations in a letter sent to Bell. Some American television firms have accused the Japanese of "dumping" exported television sets to keep their employment rate high "Dumping" is the practice of selling products in the United States for less than they cost in the home country. John Nevin, chairman of Zenith Radio corporation, recently said that 19-inch television sets sell for more than $500 in Japan, while the same sets cost less than $300 in the U S "At a time when the unemployment rate hovers near 8 per cent, it is critical that there be a full investigation into charges of Japanese 'dumping' and price- fixing," Murphy said. "I favor a liberal trade policy, and recognize the benefits of competition to consumers. But we cannot tolerate unfair marketing practices that destroy American jobs." ' American television firms have been vigorously protesting Japanese marketing practices since 1970. In 1971, the US Tariff commission found Japanese firms guilty of selling un- derpriced television sets in the U.S. Last month, Sen Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.) alleged that a 1970 written agreement among 18 Japanese firms had created a "das sic cartel situation" involving price-fixing and market allocation Kennedy accused the Jus tice department of failing to investigate charges that the Japanese are violating antitrust laws. The International Trade commission has ruled that color television imports -mostly from Japan -- are seriously damaging the domestic television industry.

A subcommittee of the Morgan Park High school Community council has suggested a comprehensive campus plan in connection with the urban renewal project slated for the area surrounding EMPHI. The plan would call for the construction of outdoor sports facilities such as a track and tennis courts. A full report of the subcommittee will be presented at a council meeting March 27 at 7:30 pm. at Beverly bank, 103rd st and Charles. Over the weekend more than 20 Morgan Park students attended the Model United Nations conference at the George Williams col- Thomas Olson to hold 1-man show lege camp at Lake Geneva. EMPHI students represented the countries of Benin, South Africa, Panama and Mongolia. The purpose of the conference was to acquaint students with United Nations procedures. The mock sessions included debates on international topics. Each student was expected to represent the interests of his assigned country during the committee and General Assembly sessions. Each of the 19 participating high schools presented several resolutions to the conference advisors prior to the meeting. Of more than 100 resolutions submitted, 48 were selected for debate. Among those selected was a resolution on the nationalization of multinational corporations authored by Morgan Park student Greg Grazevich and a resolution on the violation of human rights in the occupied territory of Panama. Thomas Olson will have his first one-man show at the Beverly Art center April 3 through April 30. The 16 major works on exhibition will present his effort for 1976, which inspired a motif of two stars to represent two centuries of American life. In the mixed media show, these symbols appear rendered in a variety of textures, all in subdued "wood" colors and light tones Emphasizing the wood theme, some of Olson's drawings have been executed in fine oak or simple 2- by-4s and the carved sculptures are large scale, one weighing more than 300 pounds. Included in the exhibition will be highly sophisticated acrylic paintings, pen and ink drawings, silk-screened design on formica, an Oriental treatment in gold leaf on black, a collage, and a mixed media on glass painting, all indicating the wide range Olson's talent Highlight of the show is expected to be a 17-foot long by 80-inch high painting of the traditional "crazy quilt," so much a part of Americana.
