Camp David success threatens

dreams of a November election
comeback are threatened by President
Carter's Camp David triumph and the
power of incumbency by Democrats
who now hold two out of three seats in
Congress and three out of four
The GOP's best hope now is that a
tax-weary electorate will continue the
revolt triggered by Proposition 13 and
upset incumbent Democrats who do not

trend appeared only moderately in this
year's 40 state primaries-with
Democratic Gov. Michael Dukakis of
Massachusetts the main victim.

Republicans no gain, or even a loss in
the Senate, slight gains in the House

It is in the races for governor that the
GOP has its best shot. They now hold
only a dozen of the 50 governorships,
and are favored to pick up between
three to eight by conservative guesses,
and as many as a dozen if all falls their
There are 36 governorships on the
ballot. Of the nine now held by
Republicans, Democrats will reclaim
the open seat in South Carolina and are
threatening to topple the venerable
James Rhodes of Ohio. Otherwise GOP
seats appear safe-with upsets possible
for Republican Govs. Robert Bennett of
Kansas, Jay Hammond of Alaska and
Meldrim Thomson of New Hampshire.
In Michigan, recent polls have shown
Governor William Milliken leading his
Democratic challenger William
Fitzgerald by . only 4 points.

adding both California and New York to
their state house list. But their lead in
California has disappeared as Gov.

With chances at capturing the big
plums fading, Republicans are zeroing
in on smaller states. While they have a
shot against Gov. Ella Grasso in Con-
necticut and the open seats in Massa-
chusetts, Florida and Pennsylvania,
their better chances are in Idaho,
Nebraska, Nevada, Oklahoma, Oregon,
South Dakota, and Wyoming.
Republicans, will call it a victory if
they break even in the Senate on

space shuttle program
By TIMOTHY YAGLE
and JULIE BROWN
Faculty and students are looking
towards the stars as several University
departments get involved in the
National Aeronautics and Space Ad-
ministration's (NASA) space shuttle
The Areospace Engineering depar-
tment will offer a space systems design
class starting winter term. According
to Professor Harm Buning, 20 students
will assist in the design of a payload to
be used in a 1982 shuttle program.
Buning said he is a little concerned
that students might not become in-
terested in the project because many of
them will have graduated before the
1982 launching date.
Professor William Powers is designing
the shuttle's re-entry guidance system,
a crucial aspect of the mission.
NASA has opened the sale of cargo bay
space to the private sector making it
possible for the University to become
involved in the program.
The University bought five cubic feet
of space in the shuttle's cargo bay for
$10,000. The cost of the cargo space is
proportional to volume.
THE DEPARTMENT has yet to
decide what it will place in the space.
NASA must establish a criterion for
determining what kind of experiments
are installed in the 60 by 15 foot cargo
area. "They must be self-contained,
safety wise experiments, in good
taste," said Buning.
