Dems reveal tentative platform draft

Experts focus on
heavenly objects

But Dukakis said representa-
Ives of Sen. Harry Jackson and
tep. Morris Udall were more
Rctive in the early discussions
han Carter's representatives.
THE sbcommittee decided to
ose its deliberations to t h e
iblic and the news media in
,sregard of a requirement of
se party charter for open meet-
gs. A copy of the tentative
atform draft, which was ob-
ined by reporters, says "de-
sion-making behind closed
xars is the natural enemy of re-
xonsible government."
The section of the draft on
:hoot busing supports other op-
ons to achieve racial integra-

tion in schools as well.
It says:
"THOUGH mandatory trans-
portation of students b e y o n d
their neighborhoods for purpos-
es of desegregation remains a
judicial tool of last resort, the
Democratic party will be an ac-
tive ally of those communities
which seek to enhance the qual-
ity as well as the integration of
educational opportunities through
other measures."
It went on to name these other
measures as "the redrawing of
attendance lines, pairing of
schools, the use of the 'magnet'
school concept and other tech-
niques for the achievement of
racial and economic integra-

President Ford has said he
firmly opposes the use of busing
to promote racial balance in the
public schools, although he adds
he will support court decisions
on busing.
Ronald Reagan, Ford's chal-
lenger for the Republican nomi-
nation for president, has said he
is against forced busing, a n d
would support a constitutional
amendment if that is the only
way to eliminate busing.
The Democrats' tentative draft
also would suport the concept
of national economic planning,
support national health insur-
ance in a "fiscally responsive
way," and favor guidelines but
not controls on wages and prices
at the present time.

Pursell leads House race

'There hasn't been a manhole
secident in Ann Arbor in the

licative of the uselessness of
dis legislation."

Pursell was unavailable for
comment on Trowbridge's re-
Af FAR as the actual cam-
paigning is concerned, most
observers give Pursell a big
edge over Trowbridge.. In what
was widely regarded as a swing
di trict. Pursell won his last
state s.natorial race with 63
pe' cent of the vote, the largest
m05ority in the entire state.
Pursell also seems to have
the jurrp on Trowbridge in re-
garas to both name - recogni-
tio-: and organization. He has
become increasingly visible the

last week or two. Locally, Pur-
sell took a swing through the
city last weekend with stops
at ths Farmer's Market and
the Greek Festival.
Asked how he views his op-
ponent's campaign effort, Pur-
sell replied, "I haven't seen
much of him - I can't really
conment on how well or poorly
he's doing."
"RUNNING IN a city ward
is eery different from running
in a congressional district,"
said Pursell.
He added, "I've heard he's
somewhat disorganized."
As for the outcome of the
election, Pursell appears quite
confidence of victory. "I expect
to win the primary rather sub-
starlially," he said.
Pursell also characterized
Trowbridge as a "professed
conservative", meanwhile call-
ing himself "a problam - solver
in tI-s Esch tradition."

HYNEK'S involvement began
in 1949 with an Air Force study
on UFO reports. "I took it as a
joke, a passing fad," he recall-
ed. "I was surprised to realize
tha' reports came from other
parts of the world."
Because of the Freedom of
Information Act, which states
that all government agency re-
ports should be made open to
the public, the Air Force will
release "Project Bluebook" lat-
er this month.
This report which Hynek will
edit, contains many accounts of
UF( sightings and cases.
IE PROJECT Starlight In-
ternational tracking system is
now being installed on MUF-
ON's 400 acre research site in
central Texas. The tracking
system (called Operation Ar-
gus) consists of stations which
feed information on UFO's into
a c.nputer. The Argus system
activates when a magnetomet-
er, gravitometer, or radar unit
detect an object of a certain
frequency or measure in its
tracking distance. The unit then
alerts the central. computer
which displays a television pic-
ture of the area and pinpoints
the location of the UFO. A four-
wheel-drive unit then is dis-
pa~ched to the locale.

NEW YORK (P) - Hall of
Famer Ralph Kiner recalls a
round of golf he played with
Stan Musial, Red Schoendienst
and Yogi Berra. The 18 holes
took 6 hours and Kiner
blames the longevity on Berra.
"Yogi didn't bring his clubs
and, as you may know, he
plays some shots left-handed
and some right-handed," says
Kiner. "Well, Yogi used clubs
in my bag for his right-handed
shots and used Stan's for the
lefty shots. Yogi spent the best
part of the day walking from
one bag to the other, depending
on the situation."
