maries in Oregon, Idaho and
Nevada because of the popular-
ity of Church in his home state
and neighboring Oregon, and
the popularity of Brown in both
California and Nevada.
He added, however, that he
has beaten favorite sons be-
fore. He predicted an uphill
battle in California. hut said
he will put a full effort into the
state's primary.
He also predicted that Udall
would be saving his resources
and efforts for a major push
in one or two delegate-rich pri-
mary states.
FOR ROTH the Renublican
and Democratic contestants, the
prospect now is that no entry
will have majority command
before convention time. That

Ford, buoyed by landslide vic-
tories in his home Michigan
primary and in Maryland, goes
west on Saturday to campaign
in California. He's appearing in
Oregon and Nevada, too, where
there are primaries next Tues-
day. But the real target in Rea-
gan's California.
"California is eminently win-
nable," said Peter Kaye,
spokesman for the Ford 'cain-
paign. "Given the volatility 3
of the electorate and given theI
good news of Tuesday, we can,
take it."
"WE NEED California to win
a first ballot victory," he said.
Mayor Pete Wilson of San Die-
go, who heads the Ford cam-
FAST

paign in Southern California,
said Reagan probably is ahead
by a small margin now. He
said Republicans there a r e
torn between allegiance to Rea-
gan, twice elected their gover-
nor, and support for the incum-
bent President. Wilson forecast
a Ford victory in the winner-
take-all contest for 167 Repub-
lican delegates.
The latest California Poll,
conducted between May 6 and
May 8, shows Reagan leading
Ford 49 per cent to 39 per cent.
"I think the California pri-
mary is very important," Rea-
gan said. "I am reasonably
optimistic."
Ford will be campaigning
there before the June 8 ballot-
ing. Kaye said that depends on
decisions still to be made about
the allocation of scarce cam-
paign money.

iled one se- DAN TSANG of GEO pointed
r. out that the administration had
a was com- never mentioned application as
ate possible criterion for availability. He and
minorities other GEO negotiators charged
veying each that this new policy was dis-
ent's avail- criminatory, and moreover, was
insists of all evidence of an administrative ef-
t the unit's fort to "fudge the figures."

ome depart- By reducing the number in the
availability pool, the percentane of minori-
ho have ap- ties and women hired anpears
er than all higher than it would if the nool
might not was defined according to the
-- "Memorandum of Understand-
ing."
"THIS STUFF thev're talking
about-fudging the data-is all
nonsense as far as I'm concern-
ed," Forsyth commented after
the session.
"In terms of how we're doing
things in posting (hiring prac-
tices) it's nothing new to them
... I'm willing to categorically
state that they knew. We told
them in the past that we were
going to do that."
GEO also discussed at yes-
terday's meeting a measure in
their proposed contract calling
for the active recruitment of
minority graduate students. The
goal is to bring minority rep-
resentation up to its proper
level in proportion to national
figures.
Allen said, "If we're talking
about the year 2500 to reach
this goal, well that's one thing,
but we're interested in doing it
much sooner. Recruitment is a
faster route."
THlE administration bargain-
ers dlid not respond specifially
to that demand.
After the meetng Gt presi-
dent Doug Moran characterized
the University's attitude on in-
cluding affirmative action in the
new contract: "If it's not in the
contract, that means there's no
way to enforce it. . . . They
know if we have it in a contract
we're going to push."
"THEY'LL be dragged kick-
ing and screaming into affir-
mative action," he predicted.
Asked why the administration
would not put the affirmative
action clause in the contract,
Forsyth said that hiring prac-
tices don't involve the labor or-
ganization.
He went on to predict, "That
will be a point of contention
throughout bargaining and I
think we made that clear to-
day."
ME AN W H ILE, the
GEO team is stilt awaitingta
counterproposal from the ad-
ministration.
Forsyth calculates, "I think
we can probably have our coun-
terproposals anytime from ten
days to two weeks" from the
time of the last GEO proposal
clarification session (which
could be as early as next
Tuesday).
When the University position
is finally known, GEO negotia-
tors expect to be more able to
assess the probability of the
two sides reaching a contract
settlement before the strike
deadline set for October 5.
