Staking out campus this week during former President
Gerald Ford's teaching visit, the dapper, lapel-pinned Secret
Service agents drew curious stares from students. The Secret
Service men stared right back.
In a job that takes them to the far corners of the world,
surveillance and "just looking around" makes up the bulk of
their work.
THE JOB ISN'T confined to protecting high-powered
presidents, visiting chiefs-of-state and some cabinet members.
Several of the visiting agents normally work long hours in-
vestigating counterfeiting operations in the 65 cities across
the country that house Secret Service bureaus.
One of the body guards, who would not reveal his iden-
tity, was on assignment from the Los Angeles counterfeiting
detail. He -said the Ann Arbor visit was "almost like a vaca-
tion." Working hard in L.A. for three months hasn't left him
with much. of a social life. He showed just what "hard"
means when he explained that in the 12 years he has been on
the job protecting politicians and chasing counterfeiters he
has put in 15 years worth of 40-hour work weeks.
His duties have taken him to China for a month as part
of the advance team for former President Richard Nixon's
1972 visit to Peking.
He says he was "lured" into the Secret Service by the
opportunity to travel on the job.
FOR ALL THE travel and excitement the job becomes
a routine one, and one agent characterized the trip as "tire-
some after a while." During their stay here, Secret Service
men spent a lot of time holding up walls.

By PATTY MONTEMURRI

"The job is just like an yother job," said another guard,
"The job is just like any other job," said another guard,
to smile, but as he leaned against a door a grin spread across
his face for a moment.
A career as a presidential bodyguard strains marital
relationships. The late. hours and frequent trips leave little
time for homelife and as a result many of the agents are
young and single. Most of the agents are in their late 20's,
and all of them have college degrees.
"IT TAKES A very understanding woman" to tolerate
the constant travel and long work-days, the Californian said.
The ranks of the Secret Service have doubled since 1968
when Congress extended protection to include presidential
candidates. About 50 women have joined the 1650 member
force in the last five years.
There was the usual chauvinistic reaction to women doing
a "man's job." But the L.A. agent admitted. after witnessing
the women work, "there are some I wouldn't mind going
through a door with."
PROTECTING Betty Ford is no different than guarding
Jimmy Carter, said obe agent. To insure the safety of all
his wards, the agent has to take the same precautions with
each.
And "you don't let your political beliefs (about a par-
ticular candidate) influence your job" the Detroiter said. The
bodveuards won't admit to having any favorite charges.
If you like working hard and long, enjoy travelling, living,
in hotels and flying on airplanes, then you mightlike being a
Secret Service agent, he explained-"provided, of 'course, you
pass the security check, the oral and written exams and the
physical requirements. And he added, not too, many do.

tle acient ' Kingdon added that the an-
-eld. swers which Ford gave to stu-
dent questions were "pretty
frank" and "forthcoming." His
responses tended to confirm
material which students had
read during the course of the
term, K i n g d o n said, noting,
"That, in and of itself, is im-
portant. Students need to know
the readings are accurate."
Not all instructors were as en-
thusiastic, however.
"I FEEL THAT he just didn't
convey very much -information
to our students," said Political
Science Prof. David Singer.
Singer had criticized the po-
litical science department in De-
cember for extending the visit-
ing professorship invitation to
Ford. He said the invitation was
0 *merely a "public relations deci-
sion."
"I feel now that my reserva-
tions turned out to be justified,"
~ said Singer, who was present

ing what he termed "naive" and
"badly articulated" questions.'
He said Ford "knocked every.
one of (the questions) out of the'
park. He was in the slow-pitch
league."
.Singer was also critical of thei
manner in which Ford answered
questions at a faculty luncheon
Wednsday. "He fielded them;
with the kind of skill you'd ex-
pect from a long-time Congress-
man--he failed to answer any of
them."
SINGER admitted, however,
that Ford has "a number of
saving graces." But he said he
still has doubts about the worth
of the ex-president's visits.
"Despite the real advantages
and gains, there were some
problems," Singer said. "We,
can't overlook them."
HE ADDED that although he
was the only skeptic prior to
Ford's visit, he believes theret
are "four or five" colleagues
who join in his dissatisfaction.
Bill McGee, a teaching assist-c
ant in the introductory Ameri-
can politics course, said he
"wasn't that impressed" withF
the former president's appear-
ance before that class on Wed-s
nesday.
"I don't think there's a great
deal to be learned from SO-min-
ute , question and answer ses-
sions.'
HE SAID A seminar format
might have enhanced the valuee
of the visit.
McGee said he thought the 3001
students in the class' enjoyedr
the visit nonetheless. But he
added, "In terms of what theyc
learned, I don't think it wass
that extensive."b
He criticized Ford for using
his appearance to lash out at

Students, too, had mixed feel-
ings about the ex-presideit's
campus stay.
"It was worthwhile," sopho-
more Jeff Lieberman said, "but
it wasn't spectacular. I kind of
got caught up in the aura of the
thing while he was there."
"I WISH that he could have
been more inspiring," said jun-
ior Rachel Solom.!

Solom recalled. "(I was) really
looking into his eyes, seeing his
realness.
"Maybe that is why I was so
depressed afterwards-the inter-
action was so smooth, he was
so real.
Solom said Ford was "pleas-
ant, informative, knowledga-
ble." But she added, "I 4didn't
vote for him."

would allow an egg to survive
two falls from the fourth floor
of West Engineering. Contest-
ants were not permitted to
spend more than $10 on their
creations.
Participants were also not
allowed to use parachutes or
anything the judges thoughtt re-
sembled a parachute.
LANDING THEIR egg safely
was the easy part for some con-
testants. One contestant's
egg survived the four - story
fall, but his device shattered
when it hit the ground. He was
disqualified. Another broke his
egg while proving to the judges
it was intact. He was allowed
to participate in the second
round.
After one unlucky inventor's
contraption hit the earth, one
spectator observed a "viscous
yellow, dripping fluid" oozing
onto the blacktop.
"It broke," another observed.
after seeing his device's shat-
tered cargo slowly flowing along.

The mechanical, engineering
student explained that he de-
signed his contraption to work

like an -'automobile piston. It
consisted. of two thin metal
tubes - one inside the other-
filled with water to absorb the
landing's impact. The egg was
carried inside a padded can on
top of the device.
One of the more intricate
creations was Stuart Landay's
geodesic dome. The engineering
freshman placed his egg in a
sock suspended from wooden
rods and rubber bands con-
nected to a wire ring.
THE EGG survived both
trips, but two of the rods broke,
one on each landing.
Engineering freshman Chip
Pedersen utilized principles of
aerodynamics in his "Egg
Beater" - two wooden rotors
which twirled his egg safely to
the ground.
Non - engineering students
managed to earn several ,of
the contest's prizes. Senior Art
student Peter Scurlock's foam
rubber hamburger sculpture
earned him a two-dollar fifth
prize. LSA sophomore Kim
Weimer won a three - dollar
fourth prize while medical stu-
dent Paul Gleich captured a
large pizza for his third place
entry.
The non - engineering stu-
dent's monopoly on the prizes
was broken by two senior
chemical engineering students
calling themselves the "Ko-
mecs." The Komecs' corru-
gated box earned the inventors
a dinner for two.
