Udall faces Carter
in Mich. showdown

Presidential contender Morris Udall brought his campaign
to town on Saturday as part of a 12-day blitz on Michigan,
gearing for next Tuesday's showdown state primary. Udall
is throwing every available resource into a last-ditch effort
to stop Jimmy Carter and revive his floundering campaign.
Udall was introduced to a crowd of about 1000 at Farmer's
Market by Mayor Albert Wheeler who said, "he's the only
liberal candidate going." This was the first time Wheeler
had made a formal endorsement of Udall.
Udall, addressing the crowd in a 15 minute speech,
continually attacked Carter for being "fuzzy on the issues."
He also appealed to Democrats who have supported Sen.
Philip Hart, saying, "Phil Hart has worked ten years to
break up the oil companies but you can't find out how
Carter stands."
Udall, plagued by a lack of campaign funds, blamed his n
financial woes on President Ford's refusal to sign the bill
recreating the Federal Election Commission (FEC). The
FEC was ruled unconstitutional by the Supreme Court and
has been prohibited from disbursing matching campaign
"What he's (Ford) doing is shabby and hypocritical,"
said the lanky Arizona Democrat, claiming he has about a
third of a million dollars coming to him.

appearance at Farmers' Market where Wheeler formally endorsed Udall for the presidential post.

Who ever said that love con-

Keep on the grass
Grass is the newest obstacle
that mailmen in Belleville, Illinois
must contend with under a new
U. S. Postal Service experiment
in that city aimed at speeding up
mail delivery. Carriers will be re-
quired to take the shortest route
possible in going from house to
house-cutting across front lawns
-unless customers file an objec-
tion with the post office. Results
of the experiment will be studied
to determine how much time can
be saved. If successful, the plan
could be implemented nationwide.
Weather or not
Look for tomorrow to be sunny
and cooler with-highs in the upper
60's. Clouds will start to move in
by late lfternoon and a cold wave
will move in. Lows will be in the
middle 30's.

The suit, filed by Local 1583 of the
Association of State, County, and Muni-
cipal Employes (AFSCME) charges that
dismissals have occurred, equal over-
time privileges and pay denied, and pro-
motion opportunities distributed unfairly
due to race. The suit also alleges that
separate monitoring of the attendance
records of black employes has been done.
THE AFSCME represents some 2,500
University employes.
On April 29, two psychiatric care work-
ers, Robert Foster and Donald Lynn-

asking that they attend separate meet
