Home Economics Slogans Won't Cure Inflation Crisis 1 f By JOHN CUNNIFF ; ·;· NEW YORK (AP) -- The ; American consumer, desper- * alely seeking guidance through '' the tangled mess of his person' ft] finances, has been told by the President to balance his Budget, save, waste not. econo- piize and "do it yourself." ; The advice recalls the slogans and aphorisms lhat gently introduce every grade-sciiooler lo the realities of the market- Copperhead Found j Inside Police Aulo CHARLOTTE, N.C. (API- Policeman J.A. Corriher picked up what he thought was a rub- b'er snake put in his patrol car as a praclical joke-and found it was a live nine-inch copperhead. '· He said it struck at him sev- tral limes but missed alter he touched it Wednesday. He threw it from the car and killed i t . : , , " - " · · · " He said he knows-of no reason why someone put the snake in the car other than that he is a police officer. Another policeman, H.J. Whiteside, who drives the car on alternale shifts with Corriher, believes the snake was the vehicle when he used it Tuesday. .' He says lhat Tuesday evening his 6-year-old son Robert Jr. :Vstepped up inside the door on the driver's side to say goodby, and jumped back saying some- 'thing had stung him. : "I looked around, thinking il had been a bee or a hornet, but I found nothing." :' Whiteside said the boy's foot swelled and discolored. But it was nol until Wednesday, when Corriher called and lold about the snake, that Whiteside had any inkling of what had pened to his son. hap- "We took him to a doctor, but the bite was not serious," Whiteside said. A representative of the Charlotte Nature Museum identified the snake as a copperhead, a ·venemous snake whose bite is rarely fatal. place. They are the key words and phrases of home economics courses. They are women's age slanclbys. They are familiar words also jecause they are practiced regularly by millions of home- nakers. often out of necessity rather t h a n from choice. They are the common sense founda- ion of any household's financing. Nevertheless, while such advice might be the basis for Ejood household economics, it lardly serves as the basis for a lowly announced, voluntary na- .ional program lo meet the in- latiqn-recession crisis, an economic emergency that lias been compared in some respects to the 1930s. First, il is old stuff. It is the very advice thai millions of American householders have practiced almost instinctively for months and years. Many householder must wonder if President Ford is the last to be come aware of such habits. Second, il appears to demon strale the inability of the ad ministration, or in fact any in stitution or segment of Ameri can society, to come up with believable, substantial advice for householders. The net impact, therefore could very well be measured as a further drop in consumer ex pectations, especially since so many consumers had expectec that a change of adminis trations would be accompanied by a change in strategies. A University of Michigan con sumer survey, for example found 63 per cent of consumer^ felt that economic policy woulc change under Ford, althougl many expressed their opinion as a hope rather than a belief Now that substantial change have not been forthcoming, dis appointment is likely to b acute, and not to be assuage y slogans such as "Whip In flation Now," or by presidentia admonitions to make out a lis before shopping.
