PRESIDENT JIMMY CARTER has found out that the men from Michigan share his taste in clothing. Here, he, seems
to be amusing himself while US. Senate candidate Carl Levin and Michigan gubernatorial hopeful William Fitz-

THE QUARREL was sparked earlier
this year by Chinese accusations that
Vietnam was mistreating its ethnic
Chinese population. The situation wor-
sened as about 150,000 of the Chinese

most analysts see China's anger at
Vietnam's close ties to the Soviet Union
and Vietnam's ongoing border war with
Cambodia, a Chinese ally.

claimed that a large number of Chinese
troops penetrated the Trung Khanh

FLINT - In a repeat performance
of his 1976 campaign, President Car-
ter returned yesterday to this blue-
,collar- industrial center to urge
Democrats to "get out the vote" and
elect a Democratic ticket this
With all the pomp and pageantry
typical of a presidential visit - high,
school bands, 7,000 stomping
cheering supporters, and "Welcome
back, Jimmy" placards - Carter
used the occasion to sound a
checklist of his own achievements,
and then endorse the Democratic
candidates seated with him on stage.
CARTER BEGAN his half-hour
speech by repeating a campaign
theme he began earlier in New York,
recalling that in 1960 - the last year
Michigan elected a Democratic
governor - two-thirds of the
registered voters went to the polls.
"Next Tuesday, two-thirds of they

everyone in the packed hall "to

gubernatorial candidate William
Fitzgerald, Senatorial hopeful Carl
Levin, and other state Democrats.
The appearance in Flint for the
state ticket could well have been a
testimonial dinner for Carter him-
self. Before his own speech - in
which Carter lauded his
achievements on unemployment and
inflation - each of the candidates as
well as Senator Don Riegle of Flint
took turns praising the President.
AND IRONICALLY, it was Carl
Levin who gave Carter the most
ringing indorsement. Levin had said
earlier in his campaign that he
would not invite the President into
the state since the chief executive
"doesn't fit the theme" of a
"He also wouldn't do anything
politically," Levin said then.

ponent, Senator Robert Griffin kept

MSU women's basketball team files suit
in hopes of changing discrimination attitude
By PAULA LASHINSKY
Michigan State University's (MSU)
women's basketball team members
hope a suit they filed will change the
school's attitude towards athletics from
one of "all men are created equal" to
"all' men and women are created
From there, team members say, MSU's
efforts could be aimed at determining
exactly what "equality" means.
THE SUIT charges MSU with
iolating Title IX of the Education
Amendment of 1973, which forbids
exual discrimination in any
ucational program or activity which
eceives federal funds.
"In a broad context, not only concer-.
ing MSU but universities in general,
Ptle IX presents some complex
problems. HEW hasn't sufficiently set
guidelines to determine what exactly is
required," said Byron Higgins,
spokesman for MSU legal affairs.
University of Michigan athletic direc-
tor Donald Canham sees this same
problem in language. "What are they
saying by equal?" Canham asked.
THE WOMEN filed a qomplaint with
Heath, Education and Welfare (HEW)
in June, 1978 but have yet to receive a
MSU athletic department officials
said' they have been given no formal
notification of the complaint. A
secretary for athletic director Josephy
Kerney said,."this has nothing to do
with us," and she referred the case to.
the legal affairs office.
The women's basketball team also
filed a grievance complaint with MSU
officials, listing specific cases of what
they considered sex discrimination.
KATHY DeBOER, spokeswoman for
the team, said large discrepancies exist
between coaches salaries, scholarship
amounts, and per diem allowances. She
said practice and game facilities
provided for women are inferior to
those afforded to men.
MSU cannot formally respond to the
women's basketball team until action is
taken, by the HEW office in Chicago,
according to Higgins. But the women
complain that the ageny has been too
slow in responding.
"It seems to us that people are
moving as slowly as they can," DeBoer
The deadline for all educational in-
stitutions for compliance with Title IX
provisions was July 21, 1978. According
to Higgins, MSU has taken steps towar-
ds rectifying unequal conditions.
"THE MAJOR thrust of the com-
plaint we got concerned factilities,"
Higgins said. "MSU has recently spent
several thousand dollars renovating
another athletic development, putting
in new locker rooms specifically for the
women's use. This facility is suitable
for both practice and contest play as it
is adjacent to the gym," he said.
Canham said athletic operations at
large universities depend on large sums
of money so revenue-producing sports
can keep non-money-making sports
"We spend $1 million on football
here," Canham said, "but we net close
to $5 million. It's this money that keeps
our other sports working."
TITLE IX mandates that equal ex-
penditures are not required for male
and female athletes, though necessary
funds be allocated for equipment and

After all the trouble he had getting on
the ballot, Earl Greene still has to con-
vince people he's running for U.S.
On Tuesday night, Detroit's Channel
4 omitted mentioning the city coun-
cilman (D-Second Ward) during its
prime-time program "Final
Decisions," a three-hour look at the
congressional races in Michigan. He
was the only official candidate not men-
DURING THE telecast, Republican
Rep. Carl Pursell and American In-
dependent Party candidate Henry
Kroes - Greene's opponents for the
second congressional district seat -
gave short campaign presentations.
Then, as if that were not enough, the
Detroit News made the same mistake.
On Wednesday, in a summary of U.S.
Congressional races in Michigan, the
News listed Pursell as running unop-
posed. Greene's staff demanded a
BUT THE correction, which ap-
peared in yesterday's paper, incorrec-
tly listed Greene as a Republican and
Pursell as a Democrat.
Greene also demanded equal time, as
required by law, from the 'television
station. And what originally appeared
as a blow to his campaign has suddenly
become an opportunity for extra
Greene will pre-empt the last ten
minutes of tonight's episode of The
Muppets and appear before voters at
BVT THAT just touches on the dif-
ficulties the Greene campaign has had.
In August, the State Board of Can-
vassers ruled he was ineligible for the
November slate. Although Greene
eventually did get his name on the
ballot; he couldn't really begin cam-
paigning until mid-September.
The canvasser's refusal to list Greene
on the ballot stemmed from a state law
which says a candidate must collect at
least 15 per cent of the number of votes
received by the party's nominee in the
last statewide election. The Michigan
Court of Appeals overruled the board,
placing Greene on the ballot.
Channel 4 ofricials explained that the
omission of Greene resulted when the
initial ballot from the Second District
listed Pursell running unopposed. The
canvassers certified Greene after the
program's coordinators had already
begun to plan their coverage.
Bill Kearns, Pursell's press
secretary, suggested the councilman's
original problem has become a great
advantage to his campaign.
"This publicity has done more 'to
enhance his campaign than anything he
has done himself," Kearns said.
