Fitz says Gov.

avoidin
BY RICHARD BERKE
Democratic challenger William Fit-
zgerald yesterday accused Governor
William Milliken of ducking face-to-
face confrontations with him, charging
that the Republican has rejected 10
debate offers.
Fitzgerald, in a Lansing press con
ference, said Milliken's attitude
represents a "dramatic reversal" from
a statement the governor made at the
candidates' first debate at the Detroit
Economic Club last month. Fitzgerald
played a tape recording from that
debate during which Milliken said,
"The more debates the better, and the
sooner the better."
TO DATE, THE Detroit debate has
been the only public face-off between
the two candidates, although the
Detroit Free Press soon will publish a
debate which took place last week in the
newspaper's editorial offices.
"It is now obvious that Governor
Milliken has decided he does not want
to give the people of Michigan the op-
portunity to hear a full and open debate
on the issues facing voters in this elec-
tion," Fitzgerald said.
"In the past month, Governor
Milliken has rejected 10 invitations to
appear with me in a debate format,"
the state senator added. "That is a
shame, because nothing would be more
helpful in clarifying the issues than the
opportunity for the two of us to appear
in several areas around the state to ex-
change views on the past direction of
Michigan and our hope for the future."
TWO DEBATES are scheduled

debates
between the candidates for the week
before the election, one on WXYZ-TV in
Detroit, and the other on statewide
educational television.
Robert Berg, Milliken's com-
munications director, said the governor
has refused some of the debate requests
because of limited time in his schedule.
"To say that because he's turned
down debates that he's ducking debates
would be the same as saying because
he's turning down some Rotary Club
invitations that he's ducking Rotary
Clubs," Berg said.
HE SAID the governor can't help but
be a victim of Fitzgerald's "ploy"
because his duties don't permit him as
much time to campaign as the state
senator.
"It's sort of incredible that he's (Fit-
zgerald) saying that now - only three
weeks before the election - that he's
going to start talking about the issues,"
Berg said.
Despite Milliken's debate refusals,
his challenger said he will bring up
campaign issues himself.
"FROM NOW ON in this campaign,
unless the governor agrees to a
televised debate in every major market
in Michigan, I will debate the gover-
nor's statements on the issues without
him, beginning tomorrow and con-
tinuing throughout the campaign," the
Detroit Democrat said.
"Several times each week, I will
present a statement of the governor's
and debate it for the benefit of Michigan
voters," he said.
"These discussions will contrast with
the 10-year record of the governor
against his campaign promises for a
better Michigan," Fitzgerald added.

American economist

STOCKHOLM, Sweden (AP) -
American economist Herbert Simon
won the 1978 Nobel Prize in Economic
Science yesterday for pioneering
research into the way complex
organizations such as multinational
companies make their business
decisions.
The 62-year-old professor at the Car-
negie Mellon University in Pittsburgh,
Pa., also was hailed by the Swedish
Academy of Sciences for his broad
research in social science fields.
"SIMON WOULD be able to help us
understand the process which led to the
choice of laureates," 'said Professor
Erik Lundberg, who heads the Nobel
committee for the Swedish academy.
Simon, reached by telephone at his
home in Pittsburgh, said he was "very
surprised and pleased" at the award.
A Milwaukee native, Simon is the
seventh American to receive the
economic prize in 10 years and is the
fourth U.S. Nobel laureate to be named
this year.
THE PRIZES IN physics and
chemistry are to be awarded today. A

date for the awarding of the peace prize
has not been announced.
"We had about 75 nominations sifted
down to 25 worthy candidates. We wan-
ted the foremost regardless of
nationality, even if it was yet another
American," said Lundberg.
Last year's prize in economics was
awarded to, a Swede and an English-
man. Milton Friedman of the Univer-
sity of Chicago won it-in 1976.
"I THINK IT was probably for work I
did mostly about 20 years ago on how
people make decisions in complex
organizations," Simon said. He said he
built theories which "took into account
the limited information that people
have and the limits on their ability to
make elaborate calculations."
Simon said a study of how the
recreation department in Milwaukee
was administered sparked his interest
in decision theory and that developed
into work on "trying to make more
realistic the classical economic theory
which had assumed that businessmen
were kind of omniscient and lived in the
world of certainty? P
