THE THOUGHT that the new
administration may have "froz-
en itself" in its arms position
"worries me a bit," Ford said.
"They could and probably will4
be subjected to very, very vig-t
orous condemnation by elements<
inside the U.S."
"I respect that the over-opti-
mism, rhetoric and possible mis-
calculations might have seriousT
repercussions as far as U.S.-
Soviet relations are concerned,"
he said.l
"It appears to me that the'
perceived relationship (between1
the U.S. and the Soviets) is at
a very low point, perhaps the
lowest in the last five or six
years. I hope this apparent de-1
cay in good relations between
the two sides is only tempo-

The current strategic arms,

October, and, if the two coun-

will be "very adverse affects,

viet Union, but on the world as:
a whole."

FORD, WHO seemed comfort-
able standing before some 400
class members and almost 100
reporters, smiled frequently in
response to students' questions.
Answering one query about the
low percentage of blacks who
voted Republican last Novem-
ber, Ford quipped, "Of course,
I think black voters who didn't
vote for me made a mistake."
On a more serious note, he said
the Republican record "was not
adequately conveyed" to blacks.
The formerapresident appear-
ed to make a special effort to
keep his name among those who
are considered candidates for
the presidency in 1980. Describ-
ing his feelings toward the pres-
idency, Ford said "regardless
of the burden, it has been a
great experience, and I would
