Nuts to Jerry
The Detroit Free Press turned its editorial nose
up at Michigander Jerry Ford yesterday, and en-
dorsed Plains' own Jimmy Carter for President.
While recognizing that the stand against a home-
grown product such as Ford is unusual, the Free
Press lauded the southerner because of his contri-
bution "to the racial conciliation in Georgia, his
,emphasis on jobs, his good mind and his sense
of vision about America." Carter also received
good vibes from the Saginaw Valley, where the
Bay City Times dusted off the Watergate issue for
use on its opinion page. Watergate, the Times
wrote, 'is not a blunder of the past to be stamped
'closed'. It is still with us, and Gerald Ford was
part of it." But Ford need not feel completely os-
tracized by his home state press. Many other state
publications, including the Oakland Press, Lan-
sing State Journal and the Traverse City Record-
Eagle have already said "Nuts to Jimmy" on
their editorial pages.

In a complaint filed with the Department of Health,

N1Xon tapes set
for broadcast
WASHINGTON (AP)-The U.S. Court of Appeals cleared the
way yesterday for broadcasting of the Nixon White House tapes
played at the Watergate cover-up trial.
"The tapes played at trial are no longer confidential," the
court ruled in a 2-1 decision.
THE RULING ALSO PERMITS the sale of the tapes as phono-
graph records.
Included is the so-called "smoking gun" tape of June 23, 1972,
when former president Richard Nixon ordered that the FBI's
investigation of the Watergate break-in, six days earlier, be

The Ann Arbor City Council,
however, is attempting to com-
pensate for the losses to some
four to six other programs by
last-minute legislation.
THE PROGRAMS to lose fund-

Ford attacks




By The Associated Press and Reuter News Service
President Ford yesterday made his toughest
attack on Democratic Presidential rival Jimmy
Carter, accusing him of inviting aggression rath-
er than trying to deter it.
Ford also said Carter's views on foreign poli-
cy showed his inexperience.
THE CHARGES DREW an equally tough re-
sponse from the Georgian who said it was time
to stop bluffing with America's military might.
He accused the Ford campaign of slandering
him and his family by distributing a tabloid
newspaper containing cartoons which poked fun

at him and recountered stories that
sons had smoked marijuana.

McCarthy keeps pushing on

Independent presidential candidate Eugene McCarthy, who
whisked into Detroit last night for a two-hour visit, told a small
but enthusiastic group of supporters at Metropolitan Airport that
scrutinizing the two-party control of politics is "more important
than "examining the differences between Ford and Carter."
"In Russia, everyone has to vote, but they have only one
choice," said the Minnesota Senator. "Here, we are encouraging
everyone to vote but there are only two choices. There are more
and more people to vote, but for less and less."
McCARTHY, who now seeks a "protest vote" more than a
victory vote, shrugged off insinuations that he is splitting the
Democratic vote.
"Jimmy Carter could resign and I could win - he's spoiling

it for me," said the '68 campaign also-ran who says pollsters now
estimate McCarthy will carry 5-10 per cent of the vote.

"I though about it for a year-and-a-half
today in St. Paul without any remorse or
ferring to his absentee ballot. "It's not for
to withdraw."

and voted for myself

McCARTHY has focused his campaign on striking down state
statutes designed to keep independents off state ballots and has
successfully challenged eight such states. And during his speech
last night, news came through that New York had just consented
to put his name on the ballot.
McCarthy blames the media, in part, for perpetuating this two-
party system.
McCarthy cited an instance where CBS maintained the fair-
ness doctrine had been met because he received his 21-minute
equal time allotment from various news programs. In compari-
son, the two major parties had their national conventions, and de-
bates, as well as day-to-day news coverage.
"CBS WAS particularly moving - they said I'd been mentioned
two times by Walter Cronkite," McCarthy said scornfully.
"There was a 45-second spot on one. Apparently, if you're men-
tioned by Walter Cronkite, then you're alive," he added.
McCarthy also claimed that the media often casts him in a
