Campaigning Carl
Congressman Carl Pursell, Ann Arbor's man in Washington, stop-
ped by campus yesterday to offer first-hand obseriations on the fine
art of political campaigning. Speaking before Prof. Arthur Miller's
Contemporary Issues class, Pursell made no effort to hide the fact that
he intends to make another bid for his congressioal seat this year. A
veteran of over 10 years on the campaign trail, Pursell acknowledged
that campaigns are "not all issues, honesty, and integrity." However,
he did say that running for election can be "fun" and added that many
of his campaigns were launched after his "blood started turning" in
what might be described as, a fit of campaign fever.

Indian taker
Cherokee Chief William Redbird's 50-year tradition of presenting a
feathered Indian headdress to each newly elected U.S. President has
hit a snag with Jimmy Carter. The White Huse first told Redbird that
Carter could not accept the headdress because of a policy of turning
down all private gifts. Officials later relented and offered a White
House representative to accept it. However, Redbird wants a personal
appointment with the President. And time is running out for the 78-
yar-old chief, who lost his voice to throat-cancer surgery last month.
The White House now says the administration is trying to find a place
in Carter's schedule for the presentation. "After the bonnet was rejec-
ted, he just kept it inside. He didn't tell anybody or anything. He just
said, 'Well, he sent it back. He sent it back,' " said Della Dudley. A
former rodeo cowboy, Redbird lives in a senior citizens' apartment
with his wife, Edith, in Madison Heights, Mi.
Winter survival tips
If you are still experiencing some discomfort due to the cold
Michigan weather, these tips from Sherri Johnson, extension textile
and clothing specialist at the University of Minnesota, may be helpful.
Johnson says if your feet are still cold even when you are wearing your
warmest winter boots, your boots and/or socks may be too tight. This
can restrict blood circulation and make your feet colder instead of
warmer. She suggests wearing heavy wool socks that resisit com-
pression, leather boots to reduce condensation to a minimum, and
mesh insoles to allow ventilation under the soles of your feet. Johnson
also recommends wax-type-instead of oil-based compounds for water-
proofing leather footwear because the oil-based ones soak into leather
and reduce its natural insulating properties.
On the outside.. ..
Our luck is continuing weather-wise. Ann Arbor was narrowly
missed by a large, mean, and ugly winter storm that passed just south
of us and is now headed towards the East Coast. It passed, leaving us
untouched except for a light brush of snow. Today it should be mostly
cloudy and cold with highs between 24 and 27 and lows tonight of 10 to

In an interview Numairi said he is
"disturbed" by what he called a U.S.
failure to restrain the Soviets' activity
in Africa. So far, the U.S. has stood by
and "left the Russians to play alone in
the area," he said.
The Ogaden war, he said, is of special
concern to Sudan. He said that Sudan is
prepared to provide troops for a peace
force under the Organization of African
Unity or the Arab League to stop the
fighting there.
