Ten Cents Eight Pages

Parents of a 19-year-old University student,
Leigh Anderson, are scouring New York City for
their missing daughter because no law enforce-
ment officials will look for her. According to a
story in yesterday's New York Times, Anderson
failed to return to Ann Arbor after a long Week-
end in New York as scheduled. Sunday night. Her
parents drove to New York from their home in
W. Bloomfield, Mich., after learning police would
not search foT her because she is over 18 - the
maximum age' for officially - classified "missing
persons." Nor will the FBI enter the case, since
there is as yet no evidence of foul play. Ander-
son's brother, who the student stayed with over
the weekend, said she held "the typical reac-
tion-she liked to visit New York but she wouldn't
want to live here." Anderson's local address is
on Hill St.

How to sell a newspaper
We thought we were being relatively daring
when we printed the uncensored version of Earl
Butz' controversial joke, but the paper at the Uni-
versity of Alabama, the Crimson and White, has
completely outdone us. Thursday's editions car-
ried seven photographs of a nude woman under
the headline "Photo Essay by Reid Pruitt." Each

face'never completely uncovered. Abo 't 20,000 cop-
ies of the paper were printed - and immediate-
ly became scarce collectors' item. The editor had
no comment. Neither do we.
The selling of the Senate
Politicos aspiring for a seat in the upper house
of Congress had better check their bank accounts
first - running for the U.S. Senate is getting
more expensive every time. A study by Common
Cause, the so-called "citizens' lobby," revealed
that Senate hopefuls are spending nearly $4 mil-
lion more than two years ago, and that Michi-
gan candidate Don Riegle of Flintis among the
top 15 spenders, with $518,477 in expenditures as
of Oct. 1. Leading the parade to Capitol Hill is
Rep. John Heinz, a Pennsylvania candidate who
has shelled out $1.8 million so far - all but
$300,000 of it from his own pocket. Sen William
Proxmire, running for re-election in Wisconsin,
has managed to get by paralleling his constant
calls for cost-cutting in the national budget. As
of the first of the month, Proxmire had laid out
only $1,681.
No fair
It may not grab as many headlines as the
stories from West Point earlipr this year, but a
Denver school district official said this week that
more than ten per cent of the city's graduating
hight school seniors qualified for diplomas last
spring by cheating on reading and arithmetic
exams. In a letter to school board members, Sterl-
ing Cooper said he also believed teachers and
counselors connived in the cheating and helped
change hundreds of wrong answers. He said the
students supplemented their studying for the pro-
ficiency tests - which must be passed by sen-
iors prior to graduation - by using stolen tests
and having test answers changed before submit-
ting them for grading. Cooper's superior denied
the charges, calling them unsubstantiated.

How now, Madame Mao?
First there were the posters, then the official
radio announcements. Now the Chinese have taken
to verse in blasting their purged leftist leaders,
printing full pages of little ditties in the People's
Daily newspaper praising the new tommunist Par-
ty Chairman and attacking the radicals grouped
around his predecessor's widow, Chiang Chang.

Varied issues debated

WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (AP) - President
Ford and Jimmy Carter warily argued issues
ranging from abortion and civil rights to the
economy and their own campaign tactics last
night, then concluded their nationally-televised
debates the ,way they began -- each claiming
that he is a leader and the other a pretender.
The first signal of voter reaction indicated
that Democrat Carter had been judged the vic-
tor in the rubber match of three presidential
campaign debates.
THE CANDIDATES' final summations in Wil-
liamsburg went to the point raised in opening
statements in their first debate in Philadelphia:
the qualifications of the Republican President
and of the Democrat challenger to lead the na-
tion for the next four years..
Ford said he had observed presidents, and
sometimes differed with them, during his 25 years
in Congress.,"For the last two years, I've been
the President, and I have found from experience
that it's much more difficult to make those
decisions that it is to second-guess them," he
The President said the nation is healed after
a troubled time of Watergate and war, and "the
American people are moving again, and moving
in the right direction."

But Carter said otherwise. He said Ford's
administration has not provided national leader-
"MR. FORD IS a good and decent man, but
he's been in office now for more than 800 days
I'd like to ask the American people what's
been accomplished," Carter said. He added that
he offers no magic answers to the, nation's prob-
lems, "but I believe together we can achieve
great things."
"I believe the American people are ready
for a change in Washington," Carter said. "We've
been drifting too long, we've been dormant too
long, we've been discouraged too long."
Through much of the 90-minute debate, both
Ford and Carter avoided direct attacks. There
was an air of studied politeness. Gone were the
sardonic tones Carter took in San Francisco, the
hard line with which Ford keynoted the opening
debate in Philadelnhia.
BUT THERE WERE infrequent slaps, each
at the bther. Carter, for example, listened to
Ford boast of administration economic policies
and said "with all due respect to President Ford,
I think he o'ight to be ashamed of making that
statement" with 72 million people out of work.

At the close of round three, President and Mrs. Ford g-eet the audience in Williamsburg. They
were joined onstage by their daughter Susan and Liddy Dole, wife of the Republican vice-presi-
dential candidate, Senator Robert Dole.

the missile was still attached

But an embarrassed Navy

morning, announcing that the
Phoenix "is not attached to the

The Navy said a research
submarine is continuing to
search for the missile about 75
miles northwest of Scapa Flow,
Scotland. Other U,. S. ships were
preparing to-raise the F14 from
the ocean floor. The plane,
loaded with sophisticated elec-
