THE WEEK IN REVIEW

Campaign '76
CAMPAIGN '76 LURCHES on
in most peculiar fashion.
Conceived amid noble rhetoric
about re-examining the nation's
political assumptions and ad-i
mitting new ideas and faces
into the jousting arena from
which party candidates are
chosen, the results have been
unexpectedly reversed. The- in-
tense media coverage and the
ever-spiraling costs of maintain-

ing a national campaign have
dramatically shrunken the ranks
of men still in the race just
a few brief weeks after the
nation's first primary.
Perhaps it was inevitable that
the attrition rate be so fast in
the case of the Democrats:
there were simply too many
candidates chasing too few dele-
gates at the start of the year.
And clearly, some men, Milton
Shapp of Pennsylvania, for ex-
ample, had no base nationally,

and little money in the cam-
paign coffers.
But even candidates who have'
fared respectably are being dis-
missed prematurely; flatly, the
press wizards say they must win
big or pull out. Udall and Jack-
son have done adequately in
the primaries where they have
campaigned, but the pressure
is on each to win a primary j
outright, or be subsumed by
the snowballing Carter machine.
On the Republican side, the
unanimous opinion is that the
race is already over. The Presi-
dent has apparently vanquished
his opponent with the politics of
the Stone Age. But there's some-
thing curious here, too. Because
despite what the White House e
press office may say, the pri-
mary results have not been a1
unanimous mandate for thes
President or his policies; rather,
they have shown that with the

BUT IN THE LONG RUN,
Reagan was his own down-
fall, for his campaign betrays
the same . fatal flaw that de-
stroyed his precursor, Barry
Goldwater. The American Right
is the most dogmatic segment
in the political spectrum, and
being true believers they un-
derstand nothing of the delicate
machinery of compromise or
strategy. For them, each bat-
tle is Armageddon, a chance to
smash the perverted tendencies
of a Republican party gone in-

Reagan's strategists should have
stressed the difficulty of unseat-
ing an incumbent. They should
have played the part of shills
for their own cause, stating in-
itially that a 30 per cent show-
ing would be a magnificent
moral victory.
The Reagan people were the
NLF of the campaign, yet they
insisted on using ARVN tactics.
A bad error, but understandable
in the context of their think-
ing: guerrilla warfare is no
way to win a crusade, for cru-
sades are holy wars to be fought
until the death of the defeated.
So now we're through Illinois,
and the discussion of the issues,
instead of being broadened, is
narrowed. Jimmy Carter has
made himself the focus of his
campaign, as well he might, for
his personality, is the most win-
ning part of his effort. The
President stresseshis manage-
ment of an economy that re-
covers at a rate which implicitly
assumes the continual misery of
the substantial body of unem-
ployed. More than ever, the can-
didates sufer from Tweedle
Dee/Tweedle Dum syndrome;
since they all sound alike the
race is reduced to the politics of

Black enrollment
BESIDES THE USUAL prob-
lems of inflation and un-
employment, a malfunctioning
economy wreaks other forms of
vengeance of a nation. Break-
downs in the performance of
the mechanism by which the
people earn their livelihood does
more than merely cause imme-
diate suffering. It sabotages that
society's attempts to better the
quality of life by diverting re-
sources away from sallies at
reform, which are, in some
short-run sense, luxuries.
It seems obvious that this
syndrome is largely responsible
for the University's failure to
achieve the goals of the Black
Action Movement (BAM) for
10 perrcenthblack enrollment.
It's true that the University
is not a conducive environment
for a new student, any student,
and being outside the white,
middle class cultural norms can
only reinforce the isolation and
alienation. Minority students
have rightly complained that
the University community has
often been hostile to them.
But beneath the question of
what happens to minority stu-
dents when they come here 'is
the problems of simply persuad-
ing them to enrollhere. As
George Goodman, the director
of the University's Opportunity
Program succinctly put it:
"What incentive is there for the
student to come to the Univer-
sity if there's no particular job
at the end of it?"
