"I think the opposition is
showing they're out of touch
with what America wants and
I'm going to use as my text,
a speech the Republican Presi-
dent made last week at anoth-
er institution in Michigan, the
name of which I now forget,"
the Minnesota senator told a
gathering of about 400 MSU
students who approved his cold
reference to the University with
a healthy round of applause.
"When he gave this speech,"
Mondale continued, "he said,
The following are the key is-
sues in America: A job for ev-
eryone with a good future;
home ownership for all; quality,
education for every American;
good health care for all that's
affordable; safety against
crime and a national improved
system of parks.
"I BELIEVE the President
has a spy on his staff who slip-
ped him the wrong list because
that's a list of his failures, not
his successes," said Mondale.
"I've checked his record, and
the only park that he's support-
ed in the last eight years is the
president of South Korea (Park
Chung Hee)," he said, launch-
ing an attack of Ford's policies.
A disshevelled Donald Riegle,
the Democratic candidate for
Phil Hart's senate seat, arrived
at the MSU student union ball-
room during Mondale's address,
momentarily upstaging the sen-
dale's speech Riegle told the
partisan student audience:
"If there's going to be any
chance to depart from. an awful
past it's with the Carter - Mon-!
dale ticket. And make no mis-'
take about it with respect to the
administration that's in power;
today. It's true that Gerald
Ford's in the front window, but
this is a Nixon administration.
Arthur Burns of the Federal
Reserve system - who hired
him? Richard Nixon did. Who
hired William Simon from the
treasury department? Richard
Nixon did. Who runs foreign
policy? Henry Kissinger, Who
hired Kissinger? Richard Nixon
did. And now we've got Gerald
Ford in the front window, and
who hired him? Richard Nixon
did, and I want them all out!"
Following his East Lansing
appearance, Mondale trekked
30 miles to the small town of
Durand, where Ford had visit-
ed just four months ago on his
whistle-stop tour of the state.
A SIZEABLE contingent of
the town's 4,000 citizens turned
out to greet Mondale, who ac-
cepted a gift from a first grade
class on the steps of city hall
and met Durand city officials.

spokeswoman disclosed that
Conover had been admitted to
the facility two weeks ago, but
would not elaborate on the cir-
cumstances. Scholbe said Con-
over had told him he entered;
the hospital for a routine check-
up, but officials there would
not confirm this report.
Bernard Teshich, a Couzens
resident, saw Conover standing
atop the roof of the building
early yesterday morning, but
said he had no idea that the.
man intended to jump.
"I left (after noticing Con-
over) and I later found out that
he had jumped. I didn't know
who he was," Teshich said.
Building Director Spillane
said he was acquainted ,with
the deceased but had no reason
to suspect Conover was unhap-
py with his job.
But, Spillane added, "It
