John Conyers very well and I
know Congressman Bob Kasten-

vin Luker emerged from the
meeting with mixed feelings.
"I still find that I philosophic-
ally disagree with where Ford's
coming from," Luker said, "but
I didn't disagree with the way
he presented himself."
C. C. Leslie, chairwoman of
University of Michigan Stu-
dents for President Ford, add-
ed, "We were interested in get-
ting answers to well thought-
out questions and we got it."

found twenty spare minutes to
pay the football team a sur-
prise visit at Michigan Stadium,
the same shrine where he thrill-

over forty years ago.

bechler, who really didn't mind
the visit that much.
However, Bo decided to stay

Cavender later denied that
the rendition -was inspired by
Ford's southern opponent, Jim-
my Carter.
"We play the gamut," Cav-
endar said, "One old tune, one
march, one Michigan tune and:
one rock tune."



P R I O R T O H I S for-
mal speech, Ford captured the
enthusiastic ovation of an ath-
letically partisan crowd with
his mention of the number one-
ranked Wolverines. The Presi-
dent also spoke in endearing
terms of his wife, noting that
since their honeymoon, "Mich-
igan and Ford have been win-
ners ever since."
Ms. Ford, who was introduced
at the podium by her husband,
received 'a popular welcoie.
But it was the cacaphonous
combination of heckling, thun-
derous applause, and a loud
firecracker burst that punctuat-

galloed to telephone lines.
Nobody was hurt in the blast,

for the Fords, University Presi-
dent Robben Fleming ex-
pressed concern over the ap-
parent conflict of an academic
institution becoming involved
as a sringboard for a political
"WE'RE IN a bind," he said,
adding that he will likely re-
ceive many letters concerning
the conflict.
Fleming also said he was not
surprised by the amount of
heckling in the arena, and ad-
mitted he had informed Ford
of the possibility beforehand.
University Vice President for
Academic Affairs Frank Rhodes
termed the crowd 'surprisingly
good - humored." However,
Rhodes was forced to wait out-
side the arena with the other
2,000 persons whose late arriv-
als could not be accommodated.

UDINE, Italy (AP) - Strong
tremors jolted the quake-rav-
aged Friuli area again yester-
day, knocking down hundreds
of buildings and spreading new
fear through a land that has
been shaking for more than
four months. At least five per-
sons were repprted dead, two
from heart attacks.
Dozens of persons were in-
jured, many of them from jump-
ing out of windows. Rescue
teams started digging through
land and rockslides that report-
edly buried several cars, possi-
by with people trapped inside.
AUTHORITIES started evacu-
ating residents of the worst-hit
area in the northeastern corner
of Italy, moving them southward
to the Adriatic coastal flatlands.
Damage stretched over a wide
area of Friuli, which is between
the Carnic Alps and the Adri-
atic, and reached as far as
Padua, 78 miles southwest of
The tremors were felt into
Austria and Yugoslavia, in
Strasbourg, France, and slightly
as far south as Florence.
IN VENICE, tourists and resi-

dents ran outside in pajamas,
with some persons reported hos-
italized with heart problems. A
ew cornices and roof tiles fell
n Venice, but there was no re-
port of serious damage to his-
oric sights there.
