Carter gets a taste of 'presidential' transportation

UAW shifts focus on contract

(Continued from Page 1)
which borders the comfortable
cabins in which the Carter partyi
is staying.I
M E A N W H I L E, in an1
interview session with reporters
released yesterday, Carter said:
he never would have made it to
the White House if it hadn't
been for the televised presiden-
tial debates.
He feels that the second de-
bate, dealing with foreign poli-
cy, made him "a more respect-
able person" in the minds of!
the electorate and blunted the!
Republican effort to paint him
as an unknown quantity to be
feared as a leader.
That effort, he feels, was re-
sponsible for half the votes I
President Ford polled and has
left him, even in victory, with
"an image in the country which
is still there, which I've got to
repair.
Collins:
(Continued From Page 3)
Transferring the microphone
to the other hand, she leans
back and reaches for the half-
empty bottle of wine on the
counter-top. Refilling her glass
and taking a drink, she con-
tinues.
"My life is probably a little
microcosm of the way I would
like the world to be on most
.evels, even with some of the
strife I'd like to see removed.
One's politics radiate from
one's own personal life. There's
no doubt about it and you can't
be on every front all the time
and you can't be cheering and
supporting every candidate,
even those you believe. in."
"It was much easier in the
sixties," she says, speaking
slowly and choosing her words
carefully. "You could draw the
lines more clearly and say 'this
is the establishment, this is the
anti-establishment, this is the*
war, these are the people that
are for it, these are the peo-
ple who are against it, there-
fore I can see where I stand
more clearly.'
"Now it isn't so easy, it takes
a lot of thought, a lot of in-
ternal hashing over," she says.
"Only one thing makes ftotal
sense to me and that's to keep
struggling in local situations to
get the. right kind of politics,
in medicine, in education, in
women candidates."
Flanked on either side by twin
reflections of herself in the
mirrors which line the dressing
room walls, Collins dwells on
her strong commitment to fem-
inism which appears to color
most of her outlook on life now.
"I think that therein (in fem-
inism) lies the secret to most
of this mess we've gotten our-
selves into. I strongly support
women candidates everywhere.
Until we can get that 51-49 per
cent balance we're going to be
stuck. I mean whether they're
conservative women or radical
feminists, or what have you."

After a long evening under
the spotlight. Collins' work is
only half completed.
Fans wait anxiously in the
cold air outside the stage door,
their faces pressed against the
glass.
She plans to meet with ev-
eryone, displaying a firm de-
sire to exchange ideas. There
is a constant hum of activity
around her - a businesslike
air of on-going planning.
She throws out an idea about
doing workshops at universities I
in an effort to keep in constant
touch with trends and move-
ments.
"I want more visible -contact
with people and now that I've
gotten over some of the more

Someone brings up the film
Antonia, a documentary Collins
workea )n about Antonio Brico,
a wom a , conductor under whom
she studied piano as a child.
Her face brightens as she re-
calls the project and tells how
the film's success has directly
boosted the conductor's career,
ending her long struggle for
recognition.
Collins adds that she would
like to make another film, and
a reporter suggests she do one.
on the current political condi-
tions in South America, some-
thing Collins earlier described
as "dreadful."
She picks up immediately on
the idea, her blue eyes narrow-
ing as she gazes to the corner'
of the room.
She's mulling it over.

"But those people (South Am-
erican political leaders) are ser-
iotis" she says suddenly.
"They'd blow you," she adds
in excited tones as she anxi-

what might be an inviting profj-

"But ... that's an interesting
idea ... very interesting," she
murmurs, tossing the idea
around. She begins brainstorm-
ing. listing names of people
that could help her.
"Pete Seeger would be very
good."
"We could do the shootings
this way ..."
* The conversation trails off for
awhile as she considers an-
other direction for her ener-
gies.
There's a down to earth
warmth and sense of humor
beneath. the sophistication of
Collins' performance and a note
of urgency in her conversation
about politics and feminism.
She has s cceeded where oth-
ers have f iled in keeping in
close touch with the real world,
despite her level of stardom.
Her feeling of commitment
seems unwavering at times.
She can dwell long and hard
on the problems she sees in
American society, and in the
same breath, while talking
about Nixon and Watergate,
laugh as she refers to the Ford
administration as the "hair of
the dog that bit you."
As a final touch and perhaps
a summation of what makes her
tick, Collins discusses Antonio
Brico's interest in m sticism,
adding her own persp ctive.
"I guess there are guiding
forces that we don't have any
real foreknowledge of, because
I don't know where we'd be.
Maybe we would not be able
to handle certain things. But
there must be some kind of
fulfillment and Karmic cir-
cles."
