"Before I came to U-M my picture
of the drug dealer 'was that (which)
was purported by the movies they
showed in grade school. You know,
someone saying 'Hey, kid' on the
playground. Every drug dealer I
know I consider quite bright. Most*
people I know who sell acid are
very involved in the philosophy of
selling acid, the fact that -they would

WASHINGTON (AP) - Sen. Edward
Kennedy dropped more hints yesterday
about his possible presidential can-
didacy as leaders of the draft-Kennedy
forces in Florida expressed confidence
that, they had a chance to win half the
delegates in that state's county
caucuses tomorrow.
Democratic national committeeman
Sergio Bendixen,; leader of .the draft-
Kennedy forces, predicted yesterday
that winning half of the delegates in
Florida tomorrow would be enough to
coax Kennedy into formally
challenging President Carter for the
Democratic nomination.
IN WASHINGTON, Kennedy remin-
ded a Hispanic audience about his past
support for the nation's minorities. "I
hope you will come and knock on my
door," Kennedy told the League of
United Latin American Citizens'
national board. "Maybe someday soon
I'll be knocking on yours." Kennedy left
the crowded banquet room to a star-
ding ovation and scattered cries of "We
want Kennedy."
Tomorrow's Florida caucuses are
choosing delegates to. a state conven-
tion that will include a non-binding
presidential straw poll, and Carter and
Kennedy forces are pushing hard to
make a good showing.
Although the straw poll will play no
role in selecting Florida delegates to
the 1980 Democratic National Conven-
tion, both the Carter and Kennedy
camps are hoping to gain a
psychological sedge through the poll in
the Democratic Party's presidential
race.
About 50,000 Democrats are expec-
ted to take part in the 67 caucuses that
will elect 879 delegates, to take part in
the November state convention.

"Most people know someone, even

pretty terrible quality drugs in a small

guaranteed to be street quality. It's

you could find it."
Similarly, drug merchants like to
protect themselves by only selling to
people they know and trust. In general,

MORE THAN 100 PEOPLE attended yesterday's 75th anniversary rededication ceremony of the Michigan Union. The
affair was highlighted by the return from East Lansing of the anniversary banner.

from AP and UPI
UNITED NATIONS-Fidel Castro, in
an impassioned speech bristling with
anit-U.S. barbs, called on the nations of
the world yesterday to end the "ex-
ploitation of the poor," and build a new
international order or face an
apocalypse.
"I speak on behalf of the children of
the world who don't even have a piece
of bread!" the Cuban president thun-
dered. A wave of applause from the
U.N. General Assembly hall answered
him.
CASTRO'S TWO-HOUR address,
highlight of his first visit to American
soil in two-decades, ended with a one-
and-a-half- minute standing ovation
ifrom-most of the Assembly's 152 mem-
bers.
Shouts of "Fidel! Fidel!" rose in the
packed hall, where Third World
delegates sympathetic to the Cuban's
cause were predominant. The bearded
Castro, clad in his customary green
-fatigues, left through gauntlet of-well--
wishers in a nearby lounge and headed
for a U.N. luncheon with 90 dignitaries,
including American U.N. Ambassador
Donald McHenry.
Meanwhile, just across the street, an-
ti-Castro chants filled the air as about
5,000 Cuban exiles burned bearded,
cigar-smoking effigies.

Happy smiles, high expectations, and
great relief marked yesterday's
celebration of the 15th anniversary and
rededication ceremony of the Michigan
Union.

with a statement from Suzanne Young,
interim Union director.
"THE UNION has a special
mission," Young said. "The Union
should be a facilitator for experimen-
tation. Furthermore, its displays, ac-
tivities, and speakers should com-
plement the classroom learning en-
vironment. Finally, the third oldest
student union in the country should be a

place where students, faculty, ad-
ministrators, alumni, and others can
relax and enjoy themselves."
Young also stressed the Union should
be a place where people can form
University ties and create a link to their
alma mater.

Services Tom Easthope pointed towar-

complex as positive achievements of
the Union over the past year.
"THE STUDENT union has made,
some great strides and will continue to
make more," said Easthope. "We owe
special thanks to the students who ef-
fected the change; Jeff Lebow, Larry
Pulkownik, Dave Laverty, and Eric
Arnson."

The third speaker, Henry Johnson,
Vice President of Student Services, said
the University has an' obligation to
provide for the Union.
"Our Union has enormous potential,
and can be as good as any union in the
country," exclaimed Johnson.
INTERIM PRESIDENT Al.an Smith,
who attended the ceremony, reaffirmed
Johnson's statement, saying he has
great hopes and expectations for the
Union and that Johnson's leadership
facilitates this feeling. He also said he
expected this attitude to carry over to
the incoming president Harold
Shapiro administration.

The weapon did no damage, but
police arrested William Bargana, 17, of
Long Island City, N.Y. Police said they
believe Bargana acted alone.
Some of the heaviest applause of
Castro's U.N. speech came when he
denounced the U.S. peace process in the
Mideast, declaring the non-aligned
nations movement's support for the
Palestinian "right to a homeland" and
calling the Palestinians "the living
symbols of the most terrible crime of
our era."
Eager to end the crippling U.S.
economic sanctions against his island
nation, Castro has been pushing for
normalization of relations with the
United States.
The Cuban, who arrived in New York
early Thursday, said his stay in the
United States will last five to 10 days,
but the rest of his schedule was not
publicly known.
Rep. Bullard

divestment
By JEFFREY WOLFF
Despite the recent defeat of a state
bill re-instituting the draft, momentum
is mounting for a - professional army
which would lay the basis for future
U.S. military intervention in South
Africa, according to State Represen-
tative F~erry Bullard.
Bullard, who spoke to about a dozen
people yesterday in an informal talk at
Guild House, cited the momentum as
one of the many reasons to end U.S. in-
vestments in South Africa.
IT IS necessary to focus debate on
"the major role American capital plays
in South Africa and it is very important
that we reject that role," Bullard said.
Bullard is currently pushing
legislation in the state Legislature in-
tended to prevent investment of state'
pension funds and state educational in-
stitutions' trust funds (approximately
r$4.6 billion) in corporations doing
business in South Africa.
The 'current U.S. support of South
Africa is wrong from several perspec-
tives, according to Bullard. He said
there is "the moral reason" that "we
rshould not be supporting an oppressive
government based on four million
(whites) oppressing 20 million (non-
whites) ."
IN THE NEAR future, blacks in
South Africa will continue to organize
for the revolutionary change, 'the only

A Mexican exile who is seeking
political asylum in the United States
told more than 50 people at Trotter
House last night that the U.S. "is
willing to risk a new war against
Cuba."
Hector Marroquin, who fled Mexico
in 1974 because of what he said was a
"frame-up" by the government to
arrest him, said the U.S. is threatening
the governments of Nicaragua and
Cuba "because of their revolutionary
policies."
MARROQUIN is in Ann Arbor as part of
a continuing tour to speak on U.S. threats
to the people of Latin America, to seek
support for his defense campaign for
asylum, and to campaign for the
Socialist Workers Party's candidates
for president and vice-president.

troops in Cuba."
"The United States has no proof or
evidence," Marroquin said, of the
presence of Russian soldiers in Cuba,
"and is trying to justify a possible in-
vasion of Cuba and Nicaragua and any
other countries in Latin America which
attempts to challenge the domination of
U.S. imperialism.,"
"IF THEY (the Cubans) 'have
military troops, it's because they have
to defend themselves," Marroquin said.
He added that the allegations of.Soviet
combat troops in Cuba were made "to
deepen. the war sentiment of the
American people."
According to Marroquin, he left
Mexico five years ago after the
Mexican government attempted to im-

and in September of 1977 was arrested
for carrying false identification papers.
He said he was kept in jail for six days
without being able to communicate
with anyone. He was then sentenced to
six months in prison, but actually ser-
ved three and a half months before his
release.
DURING HIS tenure in jail,
Marroquin and his supporters started a
defense campaign to grant him political
asylum in the U.S. In an attempt to
clear his name, Marroquin returned to
Mexico and met with attorneys. After-
wards, he decided his life would be en-
dangered if he stayed.
He was again arrested when he at-
tempted to cross the border into the
U.S. last spring. In his six-day depor-

Once inside, however, Green decided to play it out as long
as he could. During his/her hour visit with the sisters,
Green said no one seemed overly suspicious of the rushee,
even though 'Joan' hadn't plucked her eyebrows or tried to
change her voice. "I was sitting at the dinner table, feeling
very comfortable until all of a sudden I realized ... I hear
people referring to me as 'she' ", said Green. The evening

how intensely they should think about their organization,"
