Liitle Economic Growth Forecast WASHINGTON (AP) The Commerce Department has forecast very little economic growth, some rise in -iineraploy- menl, a profits squeeze and strong price increases for Ihe U.S. economy in 1970. Its January survey of Current Business, released Tuesday, said the government's restrain- ing policies lessened progres- sively late last year after reach- ing peak intensity during Ihe first half of the year. Ervin Summons Micah, Kipling and Cockroach, But Fails By WALTER R. HEARS A P political wirier WASHINGTON (AP) Sam J. Ervin Jr., senator and law- yer, summoned the prophet Mi- cah, Rudyard Kipling, and Ar- chy the cockroach as he argued his case. But the jury, in a crime-bust- ing mood, turned him down. Ervin's jury was the Senate, and the case he lost was an ef- fort to strike from Ihe drug con- trol, bill a provision permitting surprise, no-knock raids by po- lice. Waving his dark-rimmed glasses like a weapon, his white eyebrows twitching with every, word, Ervin'spent two days trying to convince his peers Ihe provision violates the Constitu- tion. He did gel one concession when (he Scnale adopted more stringent rules for issuance of search warrants for surprise drug raids. But in the end, Ibe Senate vot- ed 70 lo 15 (o preserve the no- knock raid section Ervin de- nounced. The argument is one he has raised again and again during a 16-year Senate career, most fre- quently, in losing battle against civil rights legislation. But Ervin, southern conserva- tive and slrlclcsl of strict con- strucllonlsts, has Invoked It also, in a fashion which sometimes allies him with Senate liberals. His orations at times verge on one-man filibusters, flavored with Biblical quotations .and down-home stories from North Carolina. Ervin, 73, now is the third- ranked member of Ihe Senate Judiciary Committee, chairman of its constitutional rights sub- committee. In thai role, he often has berated the government for what he sees as intrusions upon the liberties of the individual, particularly the civil servant. He has denounced Invasions of privacy by government ques- tionnaire' and rebuked agency directives -seeking reports''on employes who demonstrate against American policy in Viet- nam. A justice of the North Caro- lina Supreme Court before he came (o the Senate, Ervin owns one of Ihe most extensive pri- vate law libraries in Ihe nation. He reads law in his spare lime, talks law in business hours. He has been a North Car- olina lawyer 'for 50 years, as was his father for as is his son and namesake. And there is Ihe flavor of a soiilhcrn courtroom when Ervin lakes the floor. No-knock drug raids, Ervin said, would Icl law- men behave like burglars, "Ihlevcs in Ihe night." It is designed to let police break in unannounced so drugs aren't destroyed before Ihe au- thorities can seize them as evi- dence. And that, protested Ervin, would strike down a right "dis- covered by the prophet, Micah He speaks of the lime when every man shall have a right lo dwell under his own vine and under his own fig Iree, with no one lo molcsl him or make him afraid." Then William Pitt: the King of England, but for a warrant, cannot cnler the poorest collage in his realm. Ervin quoted Kipling, as, he said, his father did once before a North Carolina jury. "Where- fore must we walch the King, lest our gain be lost." This jury wasn't convinced, not by those words, not by the quotalion from Archy, the poet- ic cockroach invented by author Don Marquis. "Man is past comprehend- it began. Bui not Sam Ervin, who went (lown orating: "When I am called upon lo take my aland upon governmental tyranny on the one hand and the freedom of individuals on the olhcr, I shall stand for Ihe last-named as long as God gives me a heart lo love America."
