In doing so, these funds are saying conclusively thai Ihcy do not view the low level of the market as a buying opportunity Ironically, their bearishncss tndoublcdly is contributing to he low level of corporate share iriccs, thus reinforcin_ iluation that drove them from he market in the first place.

Theoretically, the low price of blue chip companies, score of which are selling below book value, represent an opportunity Tor portfolio managers whose primary goal is to buy low and sell high.

Weeks says the Litte Rock Poice Depart- mcnt has no plans to use pistols larger than the .38-calibcr pis lols ils officers now use.

The obvious breakdown in hroughout the country, he said vas threatening to undermine lie entire democratic form of ;overnment. "The rights of public employ es have to he faced if we ex necL our democracy to stir Â·ivc," sai dPryor, whose can diclacy has the endorsement ol he state AFL-CIO. Pryor did offer specific pro losais to solve problems o niblic employes, but he said he would always be available I' listen to what they had to say. "I'm no miracle worker," h said, "and if I become gover nor your problems will not gi' way overnight. But I am goini lo try to solve some of you problems." In the interview, Pryor ex plained, "I'm just saying co lective bargaining is an issu that government must face, did not endorse collective ba gaining among public emplo; s; I just said it's something lat is not only an Arkansas Itualion. but it's a national and 'ortdwidc situation. I did not ndorse any form of collective Hi-gaining." Â· . i Pryor said there was a dilfcr- nce bctweeen the unionization public employes and the ight for them to stale .their rievances. He was asked if he foresaw lie lime when he would make a ecision on .whether public cm- iloyes should have the right to liirgain. He replied, "If public mployes vote in a democratic irocess. I ' think they should mve the basic right to be rep- esenled on an organized basis, 'hat's just my personal opin- on." Pryor said it was distressing hat the state's employes wero he lowest paid of any in Ihe ountry, ''out he warned association members not to expect he projected surplus of stale unds to solve all of their prob- ems. He explained that just as nflaiion was eating away at heir paychecks, it also would cut the buying power of slate unds.
