e That the president should ask for

to be turned on. Specific legislation
from Congress must be adopted to raise

oqDeregulation of energy industry so
that America can become truly in-

are currently imposed so the country

BUSH, HOWEVER, said he has
already seen the revival of the free en-
4erprise system begin, claiming that
the American people have begun to
perceive the huge waste in the federal
bureaucracy and are calling for a

drastic cut in federal spending.
"I see the resurgence in the vote on.
Proposition 13. I hear the resurgence in
the voices for a constitutional amen-
dment to limit the growth of federal
spending and I feel that resurgence
when people begin to demand spending
cuts even more than tax cuts," said the
54-year-old Republican.
During the morning news conference,
the Texan elaborated on a number of
subjects related to foreign policy, spen-
ding the most time assailing the Carter
Administration's weakness in Iran.
While admitting that the United
States could probably not have kept the
Shah in power, Bush complained that a
tougher stance in Iran might have been
able to "shape events" differently, im-
plying that the U.S. might have preven-
ted Khoemini from seizing power.
HE CRITICIZED the country's
current defense posture, which he
claims has been losing ground to the
Russians. He said he believes the
United States is entering the end of

SALT II negotiations in an "inferior
position" than during the first arms
limitation talks in 1972.
In a rare sign of support for the in-
cumbent chief executive, Bush said he
applauded President Carter's recent
achievements in the Middle East, but
cautioned that real peace won't be at-
tained in that region until a solution can
be found for the Palestinian problem.
Bush, who guided the CIA from 1976
to 1977, repeatedly voiced his concern
for the agency's future capability to
provide the United States with crucial
information from around the world.
"We must retain a covert
capability," said Bush, emphasizing
that the Carter Adminsitration's moves
to restrict certain powers of the agency
had caused its* lack of sufficient early
indications of the threat to the Shah.
BUSH, WHO already has established
a 1980 campaign committee with
Gerald Ford's former campaign
manger James Baker III as its chair-
man and has attracted other past Ford

backers, admitted he is starting his
campaign from far back in the field but
thinks he has a chance to duplicate
Jimmy Carter's miraculous ,effort in
"I know how Jimmy Carter felt when
he sat back two years before the elec-
tion. I am convinced that I can cam-
paign in a way not to tear down some
other Republican," he said.
"I am convinced it can be done," he
added confidently.
To do it, he has decided to enter all of
the early primaries where he admits
his fate as a candidate will be deter-
mined in less than a year from now.
Richard Lindsay is one of an estimated
250 persons in the nation who have both
a medical and a legal degree and the
only one in West Virginia to be actively
practicing both professions
He received his medical degree in
1974 and law degree in 1978, both from
West Virginia University.
He is now employed by a law firm. He
also puts in 40 hours a week practicin
medicine in emergency rooms at
Lindsay, 29, if the father of three.

Senate blasts Regent disruption

she said. Scearse noted that she did not
Approve of the disruption, and obser-
ved, "I'm not sure that they (the
demonstrators) had exhausted all the
possible choices open to them."
Prior to its censure vote, the Assem-
bly discussed University funding
.problems with State Representatives
Perry Bullard (D-Ann Arbor) and Roy
Smith (R-Ann Arbor) and State Senator
Edward Pierce (D-18th District.)
Music Professor Lewis Cooper asked
whether some of the smaller state
school campuses could be closed as
projected enrollment declines continue
and state funding decreases. Bullard
explained that such action would be
unlikely, because of the competing in-
terests which legislators represent.
"EACH DISTRICT of 80,000 people
has representatives which will fight the
closing of area institutions," said
Bullard. Bullard said the more likely
action on the part of the legislature
would be across-the-board cuts for all
state institutions as enrollments
Cooper responded that many in-
stitutions would then be under-utilized,
and suggested that a more sensible op-
tion would appear to be the closing of
some schools.
"The democratic process is not;
capable of such rational planning,"
because it must represent so many op-
posing, regional views, Bullard an-
PIERCE believes it will be almost
impossible to convince the legislature
and the taxpayers that the University
deserves a greater differential share of
the state education budget than other
state schools.
Although the University is
acknowledged as a quality institution,
Pierce said, taxpayers living in the
may take
case to court

ded, the Regents agreed to commission
another study of the South Africa
situation for possible discussion and ac-
tion at April's meeting.
meanwhile, issued a statement yester-
day morning clarifying his position on
the issue.
The leaflet, which was distributed
over campus, defended the Regents ac-
tion and leveled some criticism at the
Open Meetings Act.
"I do not believe the law should be
such as would require either abdication
of responsibility for managing the af-
fairs to the University or the use of for-
ceful eviction," Smith said in the
statement. "It was upon that basis that
with counsel's advice, we sought the
restraining order and the order of the
court which would permit closing and
securing the meeting to accomplish the
Regents' business," he continued.
Smith said last night the intent of the
statement was only to point out a per-
ceived "flaw" in the Open Meetings
Act, not to generally criticize it. "I'm
not fighting the Open Meetings Act," he

neighborhoods of other institutions will
be reluctant to direct a greater share of
the funding here. "Very few ordinary
citizens are willing to give taxes for
training a visiting heart surgeon from
Japan at the University of Michigan,"
he said.
"I know that tomorrow I could go to
Eastern(Eastern Michigan University)
and get the same type of requests for
additional funding," Pierce continued.
"IF THE University is to be treated
significantly differently than other
state schools, then the other schools will
have to tacitly allow this different
treatment. A plan for higher education
is needed, and it must come from the
educators; the staking out and defen-
ding of territory will not work," he said.
Responding to a question of what the
University faculty might do to persuade
legislators that more funding is needed,
Bullard said, "There is a real problem
in the legislature with the general con-
ception that faculty people have pretty
cushy jobs. That makes it easy to

ignore the needs of the faculty and the
Frequent seminars in Lansing em-
phasizing service aspects on the
University, such as reports from the
School of Public Health, or outlines of
voting trends by the Political Science
department, might improve the
Legislature's image of the University,
Bullard said.
