Prof. Ford
Almost everybody knows by now that Jerry
Ford is coming to town. However, very few peo-
ple know exactly what classes Jerry will grace
with his presence during his week-long stay. No,
it's not "The Art of Presidential Stumbles" nor
"Rhetoric and Reason" but a whole gamut of
political science courses, from doctoral to fresh-
person level. Some of the courses he will make
special guest appearances in are: "Introduction
to American politics", "Politics of civil liberties,
and civil rights", "The American chief executive",
"Legislative behavior", "Legislative process",
"Public administration and current issues in
world politics". University officials say only in-
vited persons and students enrolled in the classes
will be allowed to attend, though they aren't say-
ing how they will enforce that assertion. We can
see it now: For Sale-one session of American
chief executive, $50.

studying, it also serves as a spot for students to socialize.

House said yesterday the United
States has no plans to revise the
Soviet-rejected strategic arms
limitation proposals when U.S.
and Russian officials meet in
Geneva in May.
"The proposal is a construc-
tive one and can furnish a basis
for continued discussion," said
White House Press Secretary
Jody Powell. "We are hopeful
the Soviet Union will consider
that proposal."
SECRETARY of State Cyrus
Vance and Soviet Foreign Min-
ister Andrei Gromyko plan to
meet in Geneva during the first
half of May. A communique
issued in Moscow and Washing-
ton indicated the agenda will
include arms limitations, the
Middle East and other topics.
* Meanwhile in Moscow, Gromy-
ko said yesterday that the Krem-
lin had turned down American
nuclear weapons limits because
they were unfair and inconsis-
Gromyko, in a televised news
conference watched by millions
of Soviets, said Vance's conten-
tion that the Russians had re-
jected a - broad arms control
proposal was "basically false"
and he mentioned numbers and
details which Vance had not pub-
licly discussed.
, POWELL SAID President Car-
ter believes "it's important to
be patient, it's important to be
methodical and he intends to be
just that." He said there is no
pressure to reach an agreement
at a particular meeting.
Powell insisted that negotia-

tion for a strategic arms limita-
tion treaty should not become a
"take-it-or-leave-it thing."
But, he said, "an agreement
finally has to be agreed upon as
a package, not by accepting the
points that are favorable" to
just one side.
THE PRESS secretary,speak-
ing with reporters at the daily
White House press briefing, said
the United States wants "to
avoid a situation in which a list
of 10 points might be presented
on which someone can agree to
three points they find most fav-
orable and then we negotiate
the other seven."

"If you've got only two points
and one balances the other, what
you can't have is an agreement
on one point" and then negotia-
tions on the other, he said.
"There are no plans to revise
the U.S. proposal" when the two
sides resume their talks in
Geneva, he said.
Powell said the U.S. proposals
would allow the Soviet Union to
"reduce the burden of the arms
race on their economy and their
people" while maintaining a
U.S.-Soviet arms balance and a
strategic capability greater than
that of any third power.

Heavy security awaits Ford

Former P r e s i d e n t Gerald
Ford will bring his words of
wisdom to campus next week,
and preparations are currently
underway to provide him with
rigid security.
Members of the Secret Serv-
ice, Washtenaw County Sheriff's
Department, Ann Arbor Police
Department and Campus Se-
curity met yesterday to map out
security measures for Ford's
five-day stay.
UNIVERSITY D i r e c t o r of
Safety Frederick Davids said
Ford's security staff is already
on campus scouting the class-
rooms where Ford will lecture.
"There an advance crew look-

ing around and checking out the
buildings where Ford will be,"
Davids said.
The Political Science Depart-
ment has agreed to issue tickets
to students in designated classes
where Ford vill lecture. Stu-
dents without tickets will not be
allowed into the lecture.
Political Science Department
Chairman Harold Jacobson said
the ticket system is needed due
to the limited size of classrooms.
Also, it will allow only the stu-
dents who belong to the class
inside, he said.-
Jacobson added that the Sec-
ret Service already has a list of
students in each of the classes.
Although security officials de-
nied it, a source close to the in-

telligence community said the
security team fears at least one
group isrplanning to cause lec-
ture disruptions by purchasing
other students' tickets and gain-
ing entrance to classrooms.
Davids said there is a possi-
bility that some students may
sell their tickets to others. Se-
curity personnel have not de-
cided if they will require student
identification with tickets, al-
though Jacobson acknowledged
that such an action is under con-

MSA studies 'space'
The Michigan Student Assembly (MSA) has latched onto an
issue-increased student space needs-and it's not going to let go.
Tuesday night MSA members contemplated staging a student
march on the Diag and a basketball marathon in the Barbour
gymnasium to protest the University's unwillingness to study
student space needs.
By Wednesday, however, the rallying cries to mass action had
subsided as meetings with University administrators began once
again. MSA president Scott Kellman said that such "public demon-
strations were no longer necessary."A
Meeting for the first time with members of a task force ap-

Changing the

Michigan legislature to repeal parts of the labor
law which make public employe strikes illegal,
or make arbitration mandatory after three weeks
of impasse at the bargaining table.
Near the end of the walkout, union representa-
tives became particularly upset over the Uni-
versity's refusal to submit contract differences
to binding arbitration.
THE REGIONAL chiefs, along with local union
officials. have also repeatedly criticized the Uni-
versity for hiring "scab" labor to undermine the
service worker strike, for not taking positive steps

their "lack of concern," and failure to "seek out
equity in the dispute."
MANY UNION leaders enjoy likening the walk-
out to the biblical story of David and Goliath.
"'You are a group of 2,300 that took on a giant,
and everybody knows it," International represen-
tative Kim Pittman told union member at their
final ratification meeting.
"This is not a typical strike," McClure said,
"this one is exceptional . . . I've been through a
lot of strikes around the country, and rarely have

labor laws
Making arbitration mandatory would guarantee
that the two sides were actively seeking an agree-
ment while workers were striking.
Oliver, for one, is confident that lobby efforts
in the state legislature will pay off.
"WE WILL be seeing the law change," he said.
Oliver, McClure and other AFSCME represen-
tatives at national, state and local levels readily
admit that the almost month-long struggle, "did
not pay off." but they say, the loss can be used
constructively to illustrate how public employes
