Bush:
Kennedy
will be
Dems pick

DETROIT-Republican presidential candidate
George Bush last night predicted that President Car-
ter would defeat Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.) for
the Democratic nomination because the liberal
senator is "out of step with the American voter.
"Carter, weak as he is, still has the respect'of the
American people, and he still has Air Force One,"
Bush said.
THE FORMER director of the Central Intelligence
Agency and former U.N. ambassador also added that
he was heartened by the news that Kennedy would
announce his candidacy today because it would
produce a bitter primary battle and "a lot of walking
wounded in the Democratic party."
Bush was the keynote speaker at the Republican's
"Countdown to Victory" fundraising dinner at the
Plaza Hotel in Detroit, scene of the 1980 GOP conven-
tion.

The fundraiser, marking the one year countdown to
the November election, was held simultaneously in'
four other cities around the country.
AT THE DETROIT event, the guest list read like a
Who's Who of national and local Republican party
politicans. Gov. William Milliken, Republican
National Committee Chairman Bill Brock, and State
GOP leader Mel Larsen all made introductory
remarks.
Bush emphasized economics, energy, and foreign
affairs as areas in which the Republicans can solve
the nation's problems and the Democratic leadership
has failed.
Bush also made less-than-shaded references to
President Carter's handling of those same three
issues, never referring to the president by name, but
attacking his "impotence" in his dealings with the
Iranian students holding hostages in Iran. Bush also
attacked the administration for not doing enough to

:,:.::.:....: ;...... . : ;; r ::
............ .

ease the plight of Cambodian refugees.
IN AN EARLIR news conference, Bush sug-
gested the use of para-military troops to free the
60 American hostages currently held by Iranian
followers of the Ayatollah Khomeini, who are
demanding that the disposed Shah of Iran be ex-
tradited to that country. Bush accused the current
U.S. leadership of "vacillating in the face of tryanny
around the world."
Bush claimed at the outset of his talk that he did not
want to turn last night's fundraiser into a political
rally for his own candidacy. But his overall theme
was a rehash of his traditional campaign theme
criticizing America's lack of resolve both
domestically and abroad.
This story was reported by Daily staff writers
Keith Richburg, Michael Arkush, and Timothy
Yagle.

CHAVEZ ON CAMPUS NEXT WEEK:

; By JEFFIEY WOLFF
organizers for' the United Farm
VZrkers (UFW) are in Michigan and on
the University campus this week to
promote the second phase of a nine-
month-old strike against California let-
tuce-growing companies.
,,The. UFW is now calling for the ex-
4usive boycott of Red Coach iceberg
lettuce, Red-Coach is the label of Bruce
Church Co., the largest of 19 companies
'hich have not yet signed contracts
with the UFW since Cesar Chavez,
ITFW president, called for a boycott in
February.
UFW ORGANIZERS are being sent
6 approximately 20 cities in the United
;dates and Canada to organize and lay
tie groundwork for a parallel tour by
Chavez, which includes a speech at the
university Nov.13.

VIRIDIANA
(Luis Bunnel, 1961) 7 only NAT SCI
This controversial film was both a Grand Prize winner at Cannes and subse-
quently banned in Spain where it was filmed. It deals with a novice nun who,
prior to taking her final vows, visits her lecherous uncle. The uncle, tailing his
seduction attempt, kills himself in remorse. Viridiana is overcome with guilt.
As pennance for her "crime," she stays on, housing and caring for beggars in
an attempt to reform and convert them. The result is chaos and debauchery.
This is the film that proves it's okay to lust after a nun-as long as you don't
get into the habit. FERNANCO REY, SILVIAN PINAL. In Spanish, with subtitles.

boycott organizers sent to the Detroit
area, and in Ann Arbor yesterday, said,
the Bruce Church label was selected
because the company "is the biggest of
those companies still holding out and
the rest of the growers are waiting for it
to move."
Since the boycott began, 15 of the 34
companies originally affected have
signed new contracts with the UFW, in-
cluding Sun Harvest, the biggest of the
vegetable growing companies. Morales
said the union was "pleased" with the
terms of the new contract.
THE CONTRACTS, according to
Morales, contain increases in the
minimum hourly wage, from $3.70 to $5,
and in the amount paid by the com-
panies into employee medical plans, as
well as the inclusion of a cost-of-living
clause. The contract also prevents the
companies from replacing the workers
by machines - a stipulation which

Morales calls "the only way to protect
ourselves. We have to keep eating."
The success of the union in achieving
such terms Morales attributes to "the
companies really ,(being) afraid of the
boycott. Sometimes we don't even
imagine how powerful it (the boycott)
is, because the companies can hire
strike breakers and armed guards to
protect themselves against us, but they
can't hire people to buy their produc-
ts," Morales said.
Morales says Bruce Church Co. has
hired a public relations person to make
a national tour to explain the com-

pany's position. Morales cites this as
evidence "the company has already
begun to feel the pressure" of the
fledgling boycott.
The strike began, Morales said, a
year ago when the workers sought a
raise. The companies at first refused
and the UFW contracts expired at the
end of 1978, and approximately 5,000
farm workers went on strike. Workers
returned to the companies which have
since signed contracts, while the rest,
including 1,200 at Bruce Church Co.,
remain on strike with some financial
support from the UFW.

TRISTANVA

(Luis Bunuel, 1970)

8:45 only NAT SCI

Vincent Canby called this film "nothing less than the quintessential Bunuel
film of all time." A haunting and equisitely photographed work, Tristana stars
CATHERINE DENEUVE as a young, and innocent orphan who moves into the
house of Don Lope, her aging, corrupt guardian. An aristocratic free
thinker, Don Lope (brilliantly played by FERNANDO REY) opposes authority
and champions hedonism. Although, he tries to be fatherly toward Tristana,
her beauty overwhelms him, and he seduces her. Tristana willingly becomes
his mistress and begins to practice the corrupt, perverse ways of life he has
preached. Spanish with subtitles.

accident
By TIMOTHY YAGLE
Everette -Bannister, an assistant
professor of geography at the Univer-
sity, was killed in an auto accident on
the city's northeast side yesterday, a
spokesman for the Washtenaw County
Sheriff's Department said.
Bannister's Volkswagen was struck
at 10:25 a.m. by a semi-tractor trailer
which failed to stop as Bannister was
waiting to make a left turn from
Plymouth Road on to Earhart Road, the
spokesman said. The spokesman said
criminal charges may be made in con-
nection with the accident, which is still
under investigation.
Report urges
student input.
LANSING (UPI)-A task force on
school violence and vandalism yester-
day recommended giving students a
larger voice in how their schools are
run and de-emphasizing traditional
discipline, including banning corporal
punishment.
Gov. William Milliken congratulated
the 40-member. Governor's Task Force
on School Violence and Vandalsim, but
a few panel members were critical,
saying corporal punishment should be
retained and student participation in
decision-making limited.
Students from kindergarten through
12th grade must be given an oppor-
tunity to extend their participation in
school decision-making, said the panel
which included pupils, teachers, ad-
ministrators and others.
"As a result, students would take
more pride in their school at the same
time, gain a senseof self-interest and
commitment in the school situation
through genuine involvement," its
report said.
