Friday night and well into yesterday,
five television crews and a score of
reporters and photographcrs dodged the
Republicans with an intensity
traditionally found at the end of a cam-
paign-not the beginning.
Dole, whose sevenearlier visits to the
state received little press attention,
looked at the crowded media reception
and said, "This is more like it."

of Friday evening joking, sometimes
awkwardly, about whether they were or

14 nuclear protesters arrested

CHARLEVOIX (UPI) - Sheriff's
deputies arrested 14 persons yesterday
on trespassing charges during an anti-
nuclear demonstration at the Con-*
sumers Power Co.'s Big Rock nuclear
power plant.
The protesters, mainly members of a
Traverse City-based anti-nuclear group
called Nomad, 'were taken in police
cars to the Charlevoix County Jail shor-
tly before 4 p.m. EST.

ARRESTED protesters were
released a few hours later and given
notices to appear in court on Tuesday.
Thos arrested were among 50 Nomad
members who marched about one mile
from Elzinga Park in Charlevoix to the
site of the Big Rock plant. At the plant
gates, two Consumers Power officials
warned protesters they would be
arrested if they entered company
property.

Demonstrators chose 14 of their
members to enter the plant site. Once
on company property, the protesters
were warned a second time to leave
within 15 minutes or face arrest.
When they refused, company officials
called the police to make the arrests.
Several of those arrested were
students at Michigan State University.
It is not yet known whether any
protesters were University students.

why the rest of them are in New Ham-
pshire tonight," Baker said, pointing to
his colleagues.
The honored guests lined up outside
the hall and as their name and home
state was announced they walked
briskly through the crowd of 700
cheering people. "It sounds like they're
announcing a football team," Hatch
said.
"The drum roll is nice but this is one
group where 'Hail to the Chief' might be
appropriate, a little premature
perhaps, but it's got to be right for
somebody," said one Republican staff
member at the door.
BAKER, OFTEN mentioned as a con-
tender in 1980, was making his first visit
to the state and was the center of atten-.
tion.
"I won't make any decisions on my
presidential plans until mid-summer,'"
he said. "It may be a fatal political step
but there is much to be done in the
Senate."
But many of the people Baker talked
to at the dinner indicated they were
willing to wait for him. "Based on con-
versations with a 'hundred or so people
here, I'm very encouraged that many of
them say they're willing to wait for
decision," Baker said.
WHILE THE GOP heavyweights
made small talk with the guests at their
respective tables, a small army of ad-
vancemen and organizers prowled the
hall in search of supporters and
workers.
Some of the most intense lobbying
was done by representatives of aspiran-
ts who weren't there.
A Humphrey aide said former
President Gerald Ford, former Califor-
nia Gov. Ronald Reagan and former
CIA Director George Bush "made fran-
tic attempts to get here- but they
couldn't get out of previous commit-
ments."

2 bombs explode in Namibia

WINDHOEK, South-West Africa
(AP) - Two bombs exploded and
wounded 14 shoppers yesterday in
downtown Windhoek, long a relatively
safe haven in this territory's small-
scale guerrilla war. Police warned
more violence could occur leading up to
this week's disputed elections here.
One man was hospitalized with
serious injuries from one bombing and
several women were treated for deep
cuts in their legs and other light woun-
ds, a hospital spokesperson said. 11
A THIRD bomb was defused after
being found in a high-rise building.
The bombings were seen as a war-
ning that black nationalists would keep

their promise to disrupt the elections in
this South African-controlled territory,
which begin Monday. But a spokesper-
son for the South-West African People's
Organization (SWAPO) denied that
group's guerrillas were responsible.
Maj. Gen. Victor Verster, divisional
commissioner of police, warned that
more acts of "urban terrorism" might
occur but appealed to the public to be
calm and vigilant. After the bombings,
several buildings were evacuated and
stores in the central district were
closed, sending scores of Christmas
shoppers home.
SEVERAL hundred SWAPO suppor-
ters marched down Windhoek's main
street Saturday, dressed in the bright

red, blue and green colors of their par-
ty, and waving placards protesting the
elections.
South African officials here say the
election of local representatives this
week will be a preliminary step toward
independence. South Africa organized
the vote in defiance of the United
Nations' insistence on a U.N.-
supervised election, though it says it
will do its best to hold a u.n. vote later.
SWAPO has fought a hit-and-run bush
war for 12 years to wrest control of the
territory, also known as Namibia, from
white-ruled South Africa.
THE BLACK nationalist group has
refused to participate in this week's
voting, which observers believe will be
won by the Democratic Turnhalle
Alliance, the multi-racial, pro-South
African political party.
The United Nations has long
recognized SWAPO as the legitimate
representative of the Namibian people
and has demanded since 1966 that South
Africa relinquish contrpl of the
territory.
South Africa has governed the spar-
sely populated, mineral-rich area since
World War I under a League of Nations
mandate that was rescinded by the
United Nations.
Dirk Mudge, head of the Democratic
Turnhalle Alliance, described th bom-
bings as "cowardly SWAPO tactics"
aimed at intimidating people and
keeping them from the polls.

Calgon detergent commercial that he
claimed continues the stereotype of the
lisping Chinese laundry, man, and an
Old Spice commercial which shows
white males sailing into a harbor full of
Chinese women, "implying, Louie said,
that all Asian women are exotic and
desirable. "Something needs to be done
about this," he asserted.
Louie said he believes old stereotypes
can be erased and that positive images
of Asian Americans would be shown if
more Asian Americans entered the
media. "Things are starting to hap-
pen," he said, "but the Asian
Americans in the media are often in-
visible. They don't go in front of the

In one of my favorite scenes, Dylan

popping, Bob and Joan are meeting and

the background with these words:

Americans in management,", Je con-
tinued. "We'll be the ones who are
deciding whether to put a Charlie Chan
movie on the late show or whether to
cover an Asian American meeting in-
stead of a fire."
Louie expressed pleasure that many
affirmative action programs are now
classifying Asian Americans as a
minority., and that Asian Americans
are beginning to be promoted in the job
ladder and considered professionals.
"But it's an evolutionary process and it
takes time," he said.
Louie urged the audience to provide
input on the subject to the television
stations. "Television stations can
become isolated. Letters, and telephone
calls are extremely important. I en-
courage you to provide feedback on
what you would like to see on TV.
Things will never change until we get
pressure from you," he stated.
