WASHINGTON (UPI) A University of Minnesota psychologist says tile use of lie detectors by businesses to screen job applicants should be banned because many who fail the lesl are going to be in- nocent. Although no one can send a man lo prison for flunking a lie detector test, there are no Constitutional guarantees which prevent him from being deprived of a job for the same said Prof. David Lykkcn. Lykken said in an article in Ihe October issue of American Psychologist, a journal of the American Psychological Assn.. that psychologists have a professional responsibilily to oppose Ihe use of polygraphs for employe screening. The use of lie detectors in police inlerrogalions is it different matter, Lykke.a said, because the results cannot be used as evidence in court. "Judicious use of (lie polygraph in the criminal investigation context not only can improve the efficiency of police work bul could also serve as a bulwark to protect Ihe innocenl from false he said. Bul Ihe use of lie detectors in police work is dwarfed by their use in businesses faced with estimated losses of up to billion a year caused by employe theft, Lykken said. "The great impetus behind the growing use of the lie de- lector with employes is the enormous annual losses al- inbuled to employe thelt. so there is an understandable at- traction in a relatively quick and cheap procedure which claims to be able to weed out potential thieves, drug addicts and Ihe like before they are By Daniel K.

All parts of the plant, especially Ihe beans, can produce serious poisoning and even death. Some people have been la- tally poisoned by using the straight branches of the oleander as a slick for skewer- ing meal, such as hot dogs. All parts of the potato, except the actual Inher parl which we eat. are poisonous, including even the green spots on the potato and the little sprouts. YORK tivity may he the key to solving many of America's economic problems, say many business- men surveyed nationwide by the Associated Press. Their theory holds lhat the way lo enjoy a rising standard of living is lo make heller goods and supply better ser- vices at lower costs. It means more inventions, new ideas, and harder work. "There is no way to enlarge Ihe pie for labor, business anil society without an increase in the key factor; says Jackson (irayson. one of former President Nixon's economic advisers, in his book "The Confessions of a Price Kconomists roughly compute national productivity by comparing prices wilh wages. For example, if wages increased 5 percent a year, and prices 2 percenl a year, then produc- tivity can be likened to the li percent difference. Buying Power Put simply, increased productivity gives the workers' paycheck more buying power. It also dampens inflation by providing a greater supply of goods. Product! vity has been declining recently, and price uaius have been outstripping wage increases, "The problem of produc- tivity is one of the things that will stay with us until people realize il is at the root of Ihe problems we face today." says Hichard Marcus, president of Dallas' X i email- Marcus department store and one questioned by AP reporters. "We simply have not been in- genious enough in devising ways and the technology lo keep the cosl per unit down." "Anything which restricts production creates a smaller output for us to share." says Orviile chairman of a Milwaukee heavy manufac- turer.

"Foster Consumption" "The government's policy lias been to foster consump- tion. Now we need to thai production must be increased." Kasing the cosl of money and changing certain I'ax laws to aid investment are seen as major ways to increase productivity by many businessmen. Al the same time it's clear that as the economic crunch 'nils business, business mu.il tighlen ils ship, avoid wasle and look for more efficient ways to do things. That process, distasteful though il may be. also helps produc- tivity. "There is a general recogni- tion that tough times are ahead and everyone has lo pitch in and says William Foster, president of Malia. Inc.. a Hawaiian garment manufacturer. "In business. all of us have to become more efficient and increase the productivity of our resources." "Kither our profit margin is going lo shrink or you have lo find a way lo offset it." says Baltimore's Donald Dick, treasurer of McCorniick Co.. about a dilemma faced by many businesses today. Like others surveyed. Dick says his spice company has begun continuing reviews ol production processes in an ef- fort to streamline them and improve efficiency.
