McGovern

to

hit

Say fight please
University marching band members retali-
ated yesterday against those people in the
"damed North end" of Michigan stadium
who insist on yelling "shit" instead of
"fight." While the small team of bandmem-
bers circled the field to get the crowd cheer-
ing, they displayed a giant set of letters
spelling out, "SAY FIGHT PLEASE." The
crowd seemed split between the diehards
and those who were prepared to go along
with the message.
Hard luck award
This week's Hard Luck award goes to a
young Greenwich Village poet who impul-
sively cancelled a Vermont vacation this
weekend to come to Ann Arbor to meet ex-
iled Soviet writer and University poet-in-
residence Iosif Brodsky. After two days on
the road, and four hours of wandering the
streets of Ann Arbor, the young man came
to The Daily for help. We located Brodsky
all right, but in New York City, guest lec-
turing at Queens College. Happily, Brodsky
is supposed to be back in town later today,
and the young man says he will wait for
him.
GROUP, RAP and...
The latest in a series of bizarre candi-
dates for SGC has surfaced. He is Dave
Hornstein, the president, secretary, treas-
urer, "emperor" and, so far, only member
of the Bullshit Party. Hornstein, a LSA jun-
ior, says his group is "the only party on
campus with an honest name." His 'cam-
paign platform is to, "set up a student dope
cooperative which will use SGC funds to
buy lots of dope and then distribute it free
to the students." He further promises to
move SGC meetings to local bars, and adds,
"if elected I won't resign, drop out of school
or leave Ann Arbor." The election is Oct.
31 through November 2.
SGC paper snagged
Many people may be wondering why they
have not yet received their copy of The
Michigan Student News, SGC's latest news-
paper. According to Bill Jacobs, SGC presi-
dent, people putting the address stickers on
the 30,000 plus copies of the newspaper used
too much water in the glue and all the
copies stuck to each other, making the local
post office somewhat unhappy, to say the
least. They have been trying to separate the
newspapers for the past six days, but so far
few of them have managed to find their
way to mailboxes.
Happenings-...
. . . if you haven't been over to the Uni-
versity's Exhibit Museum recently, today
might be the time to go, especially if the
weather starts to deteriorate. Featured to-
day will be a planetarium show at 2 and 3
p.m. And in the rotunda of the museum is a
collection of Chinese and Indochinese cer-
amics presented by Justice and Mrs. G.
Mennen Williams (Soapy to you) . .. if you
like media work and are interested in wo-
men's issues, check out Her-Self, a new
monthly magazine which describes itself as
Ann Arbor's "community women's news-
paper." They are having a mass meeting
tomorrow at 8 p.m. in the third floor con-
ference room of the Union . . and if the
weather is nice today, one good trip to take
would be to the Matthaei Botanical Gardens,
1800 N. Dixboro Rd. It's a 20 minute bike
ride to acres and acres of nice things.
It's that day again
If you want to cash a check, talk with
Uncle Sam or go to Circuit Court, don't try

tomorrow. It's Columbus Day and finan-
cial institutions, federal and county offices
and the postal service will all be closed. The
University takes a different attitude towards
this relevant national holiday: business as
usual.

Northern states

By WALTER MEARS
AP Political Writer
KANSAS CITY, Mo. - A sharpening of
the attacks upon President Nixon and a con-
centration on large northern states seem to
be emerging as the two main elements of
the McGovern campaign strategy with elec-
tion day just a month away.
McGovern denies publicly that he is writ-
ing off any states, but his strategists ack-
nowledge that they are. The South Dakota
senator has not yet campaigned in the gen-
erally hostile South, although he said he
will make one swing into the region before

David Dellinger

election day.
McGovern's is essentially a Northern stra-
tegy with Texas thrown in. And that strategy
is evident in McGovern's usual whereabouts.
His personal campaigning is concentrat-
ed in nine of the ten biggest states. le
said the populous industrial states are where
the election will be won, and he _-!aims
he is going to win it.
Since Labor Day,. he has been to N e w
York seven times and will go there twice
more during the next 10 days. He has
worked Ohio five times, with more to
come.
He has spent three campaign days in Cali-
fornia, will devote parts of three more to
that biggest of all electoral prizes during
his next campaign journey. He calls win-
ning California imperative to his hopes for
an upset victory.
The other states that command the most
attention are Pennsylvania, Michigan, Illinois,
Massachusetts, New Jersey, and Texas.
These nine states have a commanding 242
electoral votes between them. It takes 270
to win, but McGovern figures if he can
take the big ones, enough others will fall
his way to put him over.
Texas is the only Southern state on the
real target list. Florida is the only one of
the ten biggest states that is not; McGov-
ern campaign strategists view it as a lost
cause.
Everywhere he goes, McGovern is telling
his crowds that he has good news, that the
polls are wrong and that he is going to win.
Moving into the final weeks of the cam-
paign, McGovern has also toughened his
campaign rhetoric and intensified his cor-
ruption charges against Nixon. It is an
evident effort to claim the offensive role.
But he says, "It's certainly not an act of
desperation because I've been convinced all
along that we would win."
Another clear McGovern goal is to goad
Nixon into open, if long distance, campaign
debate. That has not succeeded, at least so
far.
And the old problems are still with the
IDemocratic nominee.
Money is one. "I think a lot of people
do play the polls," he said. "It's sort of like
the horse races. They look at the odds and
put their money on the guy who's ahead in
the polls."
Another problem, and one that particularly
irritates McGovern, is credibility. He is ask-
ed, for example, about the dumping of Sen.
Thomas Eagleton (D-Mo.), as his running
mate, about the impression that he wants to
sharply increases taxes for welfare, about
a survey indicating Nixon's credibility rating
is higher than his own.
McGovern is frustrated, too, at the way
the campaign is being described to the na-
tion, at the media play given Nixon stand-
ins, and at what he contends is a different
standard applied to him and to the President.
"It's my own view that if seven of my top
aides had been caught burglarizing the Re-
publican National Committee, that I would
have been forced out of this race," he said.
For all of that, McGovern maintains he is
catching up and will score a rerun of Harry
Truman's 1948 upset victory. "I think we
are narrowing the gap everyday," he said.

War'protest
planned for
Hill Tuesday
By WILLIAM LILLVIS
A conference on the Indochinese war and
U. S. responsibility for the conflict will bring
together the son of an imprisoned South Viet-
namese presidential candidate, the mother
of an American POW, a former Saigon Uni-
versity student and anti-war activist David
Dellinger Tuesday night.
The "Endless War" conference, sched-
uled for 7:30 p.m. in Hill Aud, is sponsored
by the Indochina Peace Campaign, (IPC), a
coalition of student and community organiz-
ations. According to IPC co-ordinator
Thomas Weiskopf, the program's speakers
will focus their remarks on Vietnam as "just
one manifestation of American imperial-
ism."
The conference's list of speakers includes
representatives from a variety of anti-war
groups.
Dellinger, a former member of the Ber-
traid Russell War Crimes Tribunal, defen-
dant in the Chicago Seven trial, and long-
time peace activist, last month accompani-
ed other anti-war leaders to Hanoi to act as
liaison in the release of three American
POW's.

SENATOR GEORGE McGOVERN reads the words as Jim Martin sings a song he said he composed for McGovern's presidential
campaign. Martin auditioned the song as McGovern left his Kansas City hotel yesterday to speak before the Missouri Radio-TV News
Association meeting. Martin titled the song, "Come Home America," in reference to a McGovern theme introduced by Rep. Walter
Fauntroy (D-Washington, D.C.) at the Democratic National Convention.
PROGRAM FOR POOR
Prisoner awai ts trial in dorm

. By JIM KENTCH
In most cases, a poor person charged with
some criminal offense must spend the time
before his trial sitting in jail, simply because
he does'not have the money to make his bail
payment.
But under the provisions of a new pro-
gram, initiated by the Committee for a New
Understanding of Justice, some people in
this situation will be able to spend the time
awaiting trial in a room in one of the Uni-
versity's dormitories.
Allen (not his real name) has been living
at Mosher-Jordan for almost three weeks.
He is a 25-year-old black employed by the
University plant department and he is
charged with armed robbery.
Allen says that students have generally
been friendly since he moved into the dorm.
"Most people are nice when they don't
know who I am," Allen comments, "but if
they find out that I've been charged with
armed robbery, their attitude changes. Trust
is the main problem."

The problem of being a black in the dorm
has also affected Allen, as there are very
few other blacks living in Mosher-Jordan.
"I'm a black man and I'm going to carry
myself like one," he states. "Living in the
dorm is not cool, especially for a grown man,
but it's good to have a place where I can
get myself together."
The program, which has been operating
since last March, has placed four people
thus far. Mosher-Jordan is currently the only,
dorm in the program, although several other
dorms are considering participating.
The Public Defender's Office refers the
cases of people who are in jail simply be-

cause they cannot pay bail to the dorm coun-
cil, the dorm's governmental body. The
council reviews each case individually, and
does not accept anyone, addicted to a drug
or anyone its members feel could -possibly
cause harm to the property or residents of
the dorm.
The dorm council allocated money for the
project last spring, and they pay approxi-
mately $6 a day for the participants. Allen
is staying in what used to be a cloakroom.
Dave Ermann, a resident advisor in 'the
dorm, complains that the dorm is being over-
charged. , I

CULTURES CLASH

Middies discuss the

hip' U'

By ALLEN LOWE
$33.50 will buy a round trip bus ticket from
the Naval Academy and a ticket to the Navy-
Michigan game. And for the Middies who
flooded into Ann Arbor yesterday, it also
bought a chance to interact with students
from a college environment vastly different
than their own.
Most of the visitors were just here for a
good time, but some did stop to talk about
issues other than football.'
One might have expected some friction to
develop between the Middies and Ann Arbor
students, who have never been known for
their love of the military, but according to
the visitors, such cases were rather isolated.
One midshipman from Indiana, however,
encountered a student who sarcastically sa-
luted him on the street. He did not salute
back.
"I have better things to do," he said.
But another middie from Mason, Mich.,
commented that he had not encountered any
hostility. "People have been very friendly.
I heard about attacks on the ROTC build-
ing, so I exnected some kind of abuse."

By LORIN LABARDEE
Special To The Daily
DEARBORN - Possibly anticipating some-
thing similar to the shooting of Gov. George
Wallace, Dearborn police, Wayne County po-
lice and State Police were out in force last
night when American Independent Party
(AIP) presidential candidate John Schmitz
spoke at the Dearborn Youth Center.
As the police kept watch outside, Schmitz
told his listeners inside that Arthur Bremer
was not alone when he stalked Wallace at the
same hall five months ago.
Schmitz said, "Bremer was not the lonely
man that the press portrayed him to be.
He worked together with other people, many
of whom belonged to such leftist groups as
the SDS."
Schmitz spoke before a full house of about
600 middle-aged people. A bloc of about 100
seats had been reserved for party members.
The candidate's speech was frequently
punctuated by standing ovations on the part
of the crowd. They had been "warmed up"
by the singing of "America the Beautiful,"
"It's a Grand Old Flag" and "By the Light
of the Silvery Moon."
Schmitz not only attacked the news media's
treatment of the Wallace shooting, but also
on its entire coverage of the AIP. Schmitz
charged, "The press in this country is con-
ducting a conspiracy of silence against the
AIP."
Armed with more jokes than 'politics,
Schmitz also lashedi out at his onnonents

Speaking on the issues, Schmitz said his
main concerns were: busing, gun control,
Vietnam and welfare.
"The real issue in Vietnam," Schmitz said,
"is that the United States is furnishing the
Soviet Union with technological knowledge
and the Soviet Union is using it to produce
a product which it is sending to Vietnam.'
The real enemy, he maintained, is the Soviet
Union.
"We could stop the war in a most humane
way by cutting off the aid to the enemy,"
he added.
Claiming that he supports the party plat-
form on all the issues, Schmitz said that he
has nonetheless condensed the AIP platform
to only two planks: "Don't go to war unless
you intend to win," and "Those who work
should live better than those who won't."
A campaign button seen at the speech pos-
sibly best explained the AIP position on bus-
ing. It read: "Happiness is walking to your
neighborhood school."
