may seek
5-year limit
on busing
WASHINGTON (A')-The Ford adminis-
tration may seek legislation setting a
five-year limit on court-ordered busing
in communities which earnestly try to
desegregate schools, Atty. Gen. Edward
Levi said yesterday.
Levi said the administration views
busing as a transitional remedy which
must be imposed in certain circum-
stances but should not be permanent.
"I think busing is constitutionally re-
quired where there is no other adequate
remedy. The President certainly has
agreed with that," Levi told a news con-
ference.
"The legislation which we are dis-
cussing does have a provision that bus-
ing can, tnder certain circumstances,
be ordered for a three-year period, that
it can then be continued for two addi-
tional years," Levi said.
"THEN IF the orders of the court over
that period have been carried out in
good faith, the assumption is that busing

CARTER PICKS UP VITAL VOTES:
Jackson frees delegates

SEA ISLAND, Ga. (iP)-While Jimmy
Carter went fishing for fish not votes
yesterday, he picked up the backing of
former rival Sen. Henry M. Jackson, who
released his 225 delegates and urged
them to back the Georgian for the pres-
idential nomination.
Jackson urged his delegates to vote for
Carter on the first ballot and pledged
to campaign hard to see that Carter is
elected president in November.
JACKSON SAID the former Georgia
governor has e a r n e d the nomination,
shown the ability to draw support from
all Democratic factions and has "shown
the unique capacity to inspire confidence
among the people'"
The Associated Press delegate count
for Carter yesterday stood at 1,345.5, only
160 votes short of the 1,505 needed for
the Democratic presidential nomination.
If all the Jackson delegates went to Car-
ter, he would have 1,579.5 votes.
On the Republican side of the cam-
paign, President Ford was in Washing-
ton, and his rival for the GOP nomina-
tion, Ronald Reagan, was at home in
California with no campaign plans until
Friday.
THE AP compilation of delegates gives
Ford 963 and Reagan 881 out of the 1,130
needed for the nomination.
Carter's only active rival, Gov. Ed-
mund "Jerry" Brown of California, was
in Sacramento yesterday where he said
again that he had no plans for giving up
his race and he did not wish to be the
Democratic party's vice-presidential can-
didate.
Dressed in blue jeans and an Alman
Brothers band T-shirt, the relaxed front-
runner set off at dawn with his wife,
three sons and their wives for a day of
deep sea fishing.
"I'M GOING to beat my boys catch-
ing king mackerel," Carter told report-
ers at the dock.
Taking his first vacation after 17

months of campaigning, the former Geor-
gia governor is spending four days at the
seaside home of Phillip Alston, an At-
lanta lawyer and Carter adviser.
With Carter at sea, campaign manager
Hamilton Jordan and other aides met at
a hotel on this exclusive resort island
to plan such convention details as who
will nominate Carter and to plot his
schedule before the convention, which
starts July 12 in New York City.
"BUT THE bulk of the meeting will be
spent looking toward the fall elections,"
Jordan said.

Carter sources indicate he has been
st d y i n g convention procedures and
thinking about a vice-presidential can-
didate. Another is the expansion of his
staff, made up mostly of Georgians who
have been with him for years, to a more
widely b a s e d campaign organization,
bringing in workers from other elements
of the party and from his Democratic
opponents' campaigns.
But few details of his activities are
available to reporters. Press Secretary
Jody Powell said he believes his candi-
date should be given a respite, that he
has been overexposed.

.Today, Carter and his wife are to meet "I think people have read enough about
with those aides to go over the strategy. Jimmy Carter for a while," Dowell said.

Grade inflation
Goodyear Deparment store on S. Main
is sponsoring a sale which studious high-
schoolers should eat up. According to a
store spokeswoman, Goodyear is sub-
tracting five per cent from the price of
a purchased item for every 'A' which
appears on the final report cards of
seventh to twelfth graders, up to and
including five A's. But if you havn't hit
the books this past term, kiddies, you're
out of luck, because this sale ends July
17. At least it can be said now in all
truth that grades do mean something.
Crimestoppers
notebook
It looks like the mob has taken over
the publishing business in Hangor,
Maine - at least if you're a Vick Tracy
fan. The Bangor Daily News is dropping
the comic strip because the square-
jawed detective is too violent and his
supporting cast is made up of "wierdos.
and sickies." The paper, with a circula-
tion of 178,000, said it was discontinuing
the strip because of a June 8 episode in
which one character (a good guy) press-
ed a red-hot cigarette lighter against
another character's (a bad guy)
hand. The paper will continue the strip
until the current story line ends July 3.
The paper only received one complaint
when the June 8 episode did not appear,
from an ll-year-old-girl.
Happenings...
. .. are again scarce today. The Gl',
bargaining session will meet at 10:15
a.m. in the Kuenzel rm. of the Union
to discuss affirmative action and non-
discrimination.
Weather or not
Reasonable weather has returned at
last. It will be mostly sunny today with
highs near 80. Winds will be variable
at 10 mph. Chance of rain near zero,
keeping the humidity low.

By SUSAN ADES
Orientation can be very much like
the first three years of life-with a
mind as impressionable as Silly Putty,
every morsel of information, every
tidbit of advice and every zany inci-
dent leaves its indelible mark on the
fledgling University student.
Yesterday Mike and Sharon, a pair
of orientation leaders, had the honor
of carving the first traces of educa-
tion into some 500 spellbound incom-
ing students with such invaluable
wisdom as: "If you want to get some
beer later and you want to keep it
cold, you make what you call a dorm
refrigerator-you take your garbage
pail and fill it with ice."
AND WHILE such trivia was being
expounded to yet another group inside
Alice Lloyd Hall, the home of the
infamous orientation-strewn along the
curb outside were suitcases, knap-
sacks and veterans of the first three-
day extravaganza, waiting for their

rides back home to sanity and se-
curity.
"It was neat," said future Couzens
resident Karl Webb of his first ren-
dezvous with college life. Asked to
sum up what he has been doing since
he arrived last Monday he said, "I
got high."
You might even say Karl risked
getting blown away (in the true sense
of the word) when he got locked out
of the dorm during a Tornado Alert
on the second day of his stay. For
several freshpersons, last Tuesday
night's scare was the highlight of the
session. "What a blast!" exclaimed
Charlotte Ziegler of Lake City. "It
was one of the more memorable
moments."
THE GROUP as a whole cooperated
admirably under the circumstances,
according to dorm personnel, and the
basement vigil was characterized by
friendly chatter and even singing,
