Carter used as a campaing theme the
issue of a federal government grown
too large and a bureaucracy too com-
plex to serve the people.
HE SAID he would reorganize and
streamline the federal government to
make it more responsive. Since taking
office, he obtained passage of
legislation allowing. him to make.

"When you go at the Democrats and the

Democrats have been winning elec-

less government and fewer taxes and

THE ITINERARY for each Friday
night also includes a short talk and
film. Oct. 13, associate professor of as-

TAs at the University also spend a lot
of time analyzing data from the Univer-
sity's facilities at Cerro Tololo in Chile
and Kitt Peak, Arizona. Much of the.
work concerns strange space
phenomena such as the ubiquitous qua-
sar (a radio-emitting point in space) or
the Seyfert galaxies (in which explo-
sions and other activities are continu-
ally going on).
"WE REALLY don't know mue.i

spend that much time involved in one
thing you're bound to be a little crazy."
