rYOUSEE NEWSHAPPENCALL-r Y
Georgia on her mind
A new tune has emerged on the political scene,
and this little dandy comes to us from Ms. L.M.
Nelson, a Jimmy Carter supporter from Belleville,
Mich., who thought her witty ditty worthy enough
for submission to the local Carter headquarters.
Sung to the tune of "Barney Google," Nelson's
song is entitled "Jimmie (sic) Carter-Our Man,"
and goes like this:
He was just a southern governor,
whom this country hardly knew
Now Jimmie Carter is the guy
that we have reference to
No he's not a Mr. Rocky,
and he's not like Mr. Ford
But we think he's got just what it takes
for him to get on board.
So we're for Jimmie and his
great big winning smile
We're for Jimmie and his real old
down home style
He likes the straight and narrow walk
He hates political double talk
So come on Jimmie
with your great big winning smile
Now he's not some politician
off some great big city street
Instead, he's walked in peanut fields
with dirt upon his feet
You might call him down to earthy
A true man of the sod
Which may account for the reason,
that he still believes in God
So we're for Jimmie
and his great big winning smile ...
Well, you get the idea.

Clarification
In our story yesterday regarding Michigan Stu-
dent Assembly (MSA) support for the Graduate
Employes Organization (GEO), we referred to
the Oct. 5 deadline, less than two -eks away,
as a "strike deadline." Rather, 0 t 5 is the
date at which GEO plans to cut off its negotia-
tions with the University if the two parties fail
to agree on a settlement by then. r
Happenings...
... start rather late today, so finish up your
chores early. From 3-5 the first Hopwood Tea of
the year will be held in Rm. 1006 Angell Hall ...
at 4, the Department of Geology and Mineralogy
is sponsoring a lecture entitled "Fossil Fluids and
Their Geological Applications in Rm. 4001 of
the C. C. Little Bldg. If you get there at 3:30,
there'll be "coffee ... at 7, the YMCA is giving
a class entitled "Horticulture Workshop on Brome-
laides," at the 'Y,' 350 S. Fifth St. It's a three-
hour course and, in case you're wondering, brome-
laides are houseplants in the pineapple family
if pineapples aren't your bag, you can leap right
into a parachute jump course, sponsored by the
University Sky Divers. This free classroom in-
struction will begin at 7, Rm. 1042 East Engi-
neering ... the Revolutionary Student Brigade's
"Orientation Program" begins at 7:30 in the In-
ternational Center. There'll be songs, speakers
and discussion ... and finally, at 8, the Ann Arbor
Tenants Union is holding its mass meeting in the
Kdenzel Room of the Union ... Have a nice day.
Dreadful dye
Remember those black jelly beans and licorice
whips you used to eat as a kid? How about the
maraschino cherries you now find swimming in
your cocktails? Well, according to the Food and
Drug Administration (FDA), the food dye which
lends eye appeal to those treats doesn't exactly
do much for our bodies. After conducting labora-
tory tests on dogs, the FDA yesterday banned
Red dye No. 4 - a close cousin of the sinister
Red dye No. 2 - because of its possible link
with urinary bladder polyps and atrophy of the
adrenal glands. The FDA did not rule out can-
cer causing byproducts in the coloring. It's enough
to make you choke on your cherries.

Bad manners
Ann Landers, whose advice column appears
in 900 newspapers around the globe, finally ' has
a gripe of her very own. Speaking before a gath-
ering of the American Embassy Association in
London yesterday, the queen of advice expressed
her dismay over the private enterprise system,
and mentioned her London shoe-shopping spree
as an example. "I went into a shoe store and
was told I couldn't be served because they were
closing in two minutes," Landers lamented. "I
had to beg them to wait on me and take my
money - and this was for $65 shoes. They just
couldn't wait to get me the hell out of there."
Although she termed Britain a marvelous coun-
try, Landers slapped its private enterprise sys-
tem on the wrist, calling it "soft" and "indif-
ferent." Oh well, chip chip cheerio, Old Girl, and
better luck next time.

WASHINGTON -
The House Ethics Commit-
tee yesterday abandoned
attempts to punish televi-
sion reporter Daniel Schorr
for refusing to hand over
his copy of a secret intelli-
gence report or to say
where he got the report.
Rep. Thomas Foley (D-
Wash.) said the committee
action effectively ends its
attempt to discover who
gave the report to Schorr
or to take legal action
against Schorr for refusing
to cooperate in the panel's
investigation.
THE FIVE-MONTH investiga-
tion, costing $150,000, involves
a report of the Select House
Intelligence Committee on U.S.
intelligence activities.
Schorr, a correspondent for
CBS, has acknowledged making
the congressional report on in-
telligence abuses available to
a New York newspaper, the
Village Voice, after the House
voted last January not to pub-
lish it. But in sworn testimony
to the Ethics Committee last
week he refused to divulge his
source or to hand over his copy
of the report.

chorr
IN A series of decisions, the
committee today:
* Voted 6-5 against bringing
criminal charges against Schorr
for refusal to hand over his copy
of the leaked report;
* Voted 7-4 against recom-
mending he be stripped of his
congressional press creden-
tials;
Voted 9-1 to release him
from the committee subpoena
but specifically noted that it
made no finding on his claim
to protection under the first
amendment to the U. S. Congti-
tution:
* Tied 5-5, and thus defeat-
ed, a move to put the commit-
tee on record against recom-

case .
mending that Schorr be cited
for contempt of Congress.
THE committee plans to meet
today to consider a draft of its
final report on the Schorr case
-its last action in the investi-
gation.
After the panel's action,
Schorr said, "The most signifi-
cant. thiug is that the committee
has decided not to press for a
contempt citation against a re-
porter who has exercised his
First Amendment privilege and
honored his professional obliga-
tion to protect his confidential
source."
"In this sense," Schorr said

The crowd divides neatly to pass around him,
and nobody misses a step. Once in a while some-
one looks at the sign he's wearing and laughs.
"Water buffaloes? Hey man, I ain't that
stupid!"
RARELY, SOMEONE tosses a coin or two into
the green plastic bucket in his hand. But Mike
Kelly, of 505 Benjamin, doesn't scowl at any-
body; he's just trying to get $50 together to buy
a water buffalo.
"I've got proof it's on the level," he says. Out
of his pocket he pulls a letter from the head of

the Catholic Church's Pontifical Institute for
Foreign Missions which says, yes, he is indeed
raising money to buy a water buffalo for some
poor farmer in Burma.
Kelly explains that he ran across an ad in a
religious magazine some time ago:
"THERE WAS this priest in Burma who had
found this really good deal on buffaloes - $50
apiece - and he wants to buy them to give to
destitute farmers. I'm a Catholic, see, and these
farmers are my brothers and sisters. So I thought
this would be a good way to get the money."

Black leaders wary
of Africa peace plan

HIGH RISK FOR CANDIDATES:

ord,
The two men who put their
images and ideas on the line
today in the first presidential
debate of 1976 spent the final
hours studying their thick brief-
ing books. Behind Gerald Ford
and Jimmy Carter are weeks
of preparation. The stakes are
high.
The setting is a Philadelphia
theater nearing the end of its
second century; the television
audience is a nation of voters
mindful that a similar first en--
counter in 1960 was credited
with helping elect John Ken-
nedy.
THERE WAS a coin flip yes-
terday to determine who re-
ceives the first question.
As the quarter rolled to a
halt, Barry Jagoda, Carter's
TV aide, correctly called out
"heads," giving the first ques-
tion to Carter and the closing
statement to Ford.
While the President met in
Washington with evangelist
Billy Graham, Carter made
public an apology to Lady Bird
Johnson for citing her husband,
the late President Lyndon B.
Johnson, as an example of an
American president who has
lied.
CARTER TOLD Playboy mag-
azine: "I don't think I would
ever take on the same frame of
mind that former Presidents
Nixon or Johnson did - lying,
cheating and distorting the
truth.''
A Carter press aide said the
Democratic candidate tele-
phoned Ms. Johnson in Texas
on Tuesday night and "expres-
sed regrets that the quote im-
plied that Nixon and Johnson
should be treated in the same
category."
In recent speeches, Carter has
included Johnson in a litany of
Democratic presidents worthy
of approval.

By AP and Reuter
Rhodesian Prime Minister Ian
Smith's cabinet was reported
yesterday in favor of accept-
ing proposals for eventual black
maiority rule in Rhodesia, but
a black nationalist leader said
there were "very serious flaws"
in the peace package presented
by Secretary of State Henry Kis-
singer.
"I hope Dr. Kissinger will be
pleased with what we have de-
cided," Smith told reporters
after a Cabinet meeting at
which government sources said
ministers agreed to go along
with the Anglo-American plan
for Rhodesia.
IN LUSAKA, Zambia, Rho-
desian nationalist leader Joshua
Nkomo declined to specify the
flaws he saw in the proposals
bit said he would have to dis-
c'iss them with other black Af-
rican leaders. "What is done
next will hinge on what is done
about the flaws," he told Reu-
ter.
Nkomo, leader of the internal
faction of the African National
Council in Rhodesia, is the only
Rhodesian nationalist to have
met Kissinger during the Sec-

retary of State's African peace
mission. He was commenting on
a statement by U.S. officials in
the Kissinger party that he had
no major objections to the set-
tlement plan.
"It depends what you call ma-
jor," Nkomo said. "His (Kissin-,
ger's) proposals have very seri-
o is flaws ... these flaws could
bring out a lot of problems."
U.S. OFFICIALS on board
Kissinger's nlane, which arrived
in Nairobi last night from Kin-
shasa, Zaire, said it was possi-
ble that Smith might give a
"yes' but . .." response to the
:ackage in a speech scheduled
for tomorrow.
Kissinger has also had reports
iHdicating the Soviet Union is
persisting in its tactics to un-
dermine his Africa mission,
jouirnalists aboard his plane
were told. He reportedly thinks
Moscow may seek to induce
some African governments, or
black liberation movements, to
raise its price for a settlement
in Namibia, as well as Rhode-
sia.
Kissinger went to Nairobi to
set in motion a plan to rally

C A R T E R' S aides also
proclaimed, on debate eve,
that Carter's own poll shows
him leading Ford in states with
440 electoral votes, 170 more
than needed for election.
Ford's people, too, read good
news in the pre-debate samp-
ling although it was made by
Patrick Caddell, Carter's pub-
lic opinion analyst.
"It would appear that Mr.
Caddell's poll verifies that
we're closing the gap over the
nation, but the only poll that

is going to count is the one
that will be taken in Novem-
ber," said Ford campaign
spokesman William Greener.
Greener referred to Gallup
and Harris polls in August
showing Ford trailing Carter
by 23 and 29 percentage points
respectively and noted that the
Caddell poll showed Ford trail-
ing by less than five points in
states with about 120 elector-
al votes, five to 10 points in
states with 160 electoral votes
and by more than 10 points in

states with more than 160 elec-
toral votes.
A WHITE House visitor, John
Connally, also saw improve-
ment in the President's chances
and said "how people perceive
these two candidates and which
they can best entrust with the
duties" of president will decide
the election.
That public perception will
be sharpened by the debate.
Such was the importance of

Nearly six years ago, a group of liberals
and radicals who felt there was no place for
them in the orthodox Democratic Party joined
here to form the local branch of the Human
n-,. irnRj An-d f or time -it looked

ple who gradually drifted away from the party
found their way back to the Democratic ranks
to change things from the inside.
Bob Alexander left the Democrats in 1971 to
join the fledgling HRP, but after the 1975 city
elections - when the party began its nosedive

Congressional campaign.
"I came back because the working" people,
women, and other groups who are struggling
against repressionestill tend to look to the Demo-
cratic Party to help them," he says.

Bess Manchester, who was involved in the
HRP's Dollars for Day Care ballot campaign
in the 1975 election, has also gore over to the
Democrats. She and her husband Stevetboth
work with the Pierce campaign.
