TO STIMULATE the state econo-
my Ferency said he would like to see
public banking, which would provide
low interest loans to small
businesses.rCurrently a state bank is
working very successfully in North
Dakota, Ferency said.
Ferency says that if the public
funded its own search for alternative
energy sources it would alleviate
many of the current problems.
"We could choose the type of
energy we want rather than have nu-
clear energy shoved down our
throats," Ferency said. "It's wrong
for Milliken to wait for private in-
dustry to develop alternative forms
of energy."
FERENCY IS particularly inter-
ested in the use of wood power. He
said timber is an abundant resource
in the state and he intends to encour-
age development of wood energy,
including wood powered electric
Ferency also said he would like to

to run for governor


see government funds redirected to
other areas such as mass transpor-
tation, with special attention
devoted to the badly needed repair
of the state-owned railroads.
"How often does a person use an
airport," Ferency said. "We could
use those funds for a commuter train
between Ann Arbor and Detroit, at
least it would be more beneficial to
the people."
FERENCY SAID he sees several
issues in Gov. Milliken's record, in-
cluding PBB, Seafarer, as well as
the recent political shuffles of the
Republican ticket, all which he ex-
pects come back to haunt Milliken at
election time this fall.
"Milliken is much more vulner-
able than he was before," Ferency
said. "He has been there for five
years and he's had his chance to do
something. He's tried and he has
Concerning the Seafarer problem,
Ferency said as governor he would

persue the problem in court to seek a
legal settlement, or go as far as
calling out state troops to prevent
the construction of the underground
intelligence system.
"I WOULD GO eyeball to eyeball
with Carter to see who blinks first,"
Ferency said. "And I think Carter
will blink."
As for the selection of a running
mate, Ferency said he intends to
leave the choice to the Democratic
convention, but said he would like to
see a woman nominated to com-
plete the ticket.
Ferency said from unofficial party
tallies, he is the top contender in the
Democratic race. He added he is the
only candidate who holds promising
alternative political views.
"They all sound the same,"
Ferency said of the other
Democratic candidates. "They're
all saying, 'business as usual,' ex-
cept with a Democratic manager
rather than a Republican."~

Panel confronts minority issues

(Continued from Page 1)
"I DON'T have much problem as a
woman because when people look at
me, they only see the handicap," said
Yvonne. "That makes me sad."
"It's a double oppression, of being an
Asian American woman said Aline.
"The Asian American men, black men,
Chicano men all have their impressions
of what the women of their particular
races should be. It's a double oppres-
sion that non-minority women don't
The explanation that white women
don't face the same struggles was
echoed by all the participants. The
women differentiated between the
stereotypes held within their particular

cultures and those held by others.
"MY EXPERIENCE as a Chicano is
different, therefore, the problems are
different," said Rose. "A Chicana can't
just deal with sexism. She has to deal
with the oppression of her people," she
said. "A white woman doesn't have to
do that."
As the discussions turned to deal
with the discrimination within the
University, the women seemed to agree
on the presence of a more "subtle but
insidious" discrimination.
"The University, on this campus
didn't even know that Asian Americans
even existed," said Aline. "We were
walking around in the woodwork," she
joked. "The University has tried to

ignore us as long as they could. They're
still trying."
"DISABLED PEOPLE were ignored
as long as possible at this University,"
said Yvonne. I had a hard time getting
in (being admitted) the dorm.
Everyone from the Housing Director to
the R.A. on down tried to keep me out."
"Everyone asked, why didn't I go to
Eastern, to Wayne, to Ferris," she con-
tinued. "All the places considered
suitable for the handicapped."
Francette spoke about the Univer-
sity's recruitment of minorities and the
subsequent lack of concern as eviden-
ced by the high attrition rate. "They
recruit masses of minorities each year.
But watch'the attrition rate."

CAIRO, Egypt (AP) - Egypt said
yesterday it will pull its diplomats out
of Cyprus and ask Cypriot diplomats to
leave Cairo. Hours later, Egyptian
commandos whose raid on a terrorist-
held jetliner in Cyprus turned into a
bloody battle with Cypriot troops came
home to a heroes' welcome.
Cyprus refused to turn the two
terrorists over to Egypt and, earlier
yesterday; demanded the recall of
Cairo's military attache.
THE TERRORISTS face the death
pently in Cyprus.
Information Minister Abdel Moneim
Sawy said Egypt would review all

aspects of Egyptian-Cypriot relations
because of the "unfriendly stand" by
the Cyprus government, but added
Cairo's action "is neither a freeze nor a
break in relations."
The Middle East News Agency said
Egypt also is recalling members of its
technical and trade councils in Cyprus.

cludingT5wounded in the battle, left

"All of the people of Egypt thank you
and respect you for what you did,"
Gamasy said.
Some of the commandos were civilian
clothes-sweaters, jackets and
bluejeans. the bodies of the dead com-
mandos were not taken off the plane un-
til it was wheeled away to a military
section of the airport.

But more importantly, the tentative
agreement could bring pressure on the
Bituminous Coal Operators Association
COA) to reach a settlement.
"The hope is that one by one they
ight come to an agreement. If enough
dependent and non-BCOA companies
mach agreement, the big operators
fight fall into line,? said Rep. Frank
'hompson (D-N.J.) after meeting with

and Education Committee said he

s unlikely and the administration ap-
parently agrees.
Thompson also said Marshall in-
dicated some hope for a negotiated set-
tlement, despite a gloomy weekend
assessment that further talks would be
Talks between the union and the
BCOA, the major industry bargaining
~group representing 130 companies
producing half the nation's coal, collap-
sed over the weekend.
THE FAILURE prompted President
Carter to threaten "drastic action" to
end the strike, which has caused power
'cutbacks and job layoffs in several
Midwestern and Mid-Atlantic states.
In Indiana, officials reported 400 new
strike-related job layoffs in addition to
1,100 last week. Some Indiana utilities
already have implemented mandatory
power cutbacks while law enforcement
authorities escorted coal convoys to
utility plants.
The independent coal companies
normally follow BCOA settlements.
However, the P&M agreement could
become a guide for a national
agreement or could trigger a breakup
of the national bargaining structure if
either the union or the BCOA were to
declare a negotiating impasse.
P&M, WHICH is not a BCOA mem-
ber, operates six mines in western Ken-
tucky and on the Kansas-Missouri bor-
der employing 800-1,000 miners. The
company also operates four mines in
the West and in December set the pat-
tern for the UMW's Western contracts,
which are separate from the one cover-
ing the strike-bound mines in the East
and Midwest.
MERLIN BREAUX, the Gulf Oil vice
president who negotiated the tentative
contract, said it represented a com-
promise between earlier UMW and
BCOA bargaining demands.
The UMW bargaining council
previously rejected a BCOA offer, of-
jecting, among other things, to
proposed penalties against miners par-

ticipating in wildcat strikes. The P&M
contract offer disciplines only against
those leading such strikes.
Breaux said other coal companies
would have three alternatives if the
union approves the P&M contract:
decide it was likely to be the best it
could get because it is unlikely the
UMW would settle for anything less;
have the BCOA reject it, leaving its
members to make individual deals, or
stand by and let Carter intervene..
Administration officials also were
understood to welcome the tentative
contract and to feel that it placed in-
creased pressure on the BCOA.
