Udall blasts Ford's delay of FEC bill

Grad librarian hurt
in apparent assault

DETROIT (UPI) - Morris
Udall charged yesterday that
President Ford deliberately de-
layed signing a bill restoring
federal matching funds for pres-
idential candidates to undercut
Ronald Reagan in next Tues-
day's Michigan primary.
Udall, who is running against
Jimmy Carter and George Wal-
lace on the Democratic ballot,
said the delay also probably
damaged his last-ditch cam-
paign effort here.
FORD SIGNED the legislation
reconstituting the Federal Elec-
tion Commission and siphoning
$2.14 million back into the can-
didates' campaign chests late
yesterday. It had been on his
desk since May 5.

"t know Jerry Ford from
Congress and he is not a shabby
person. But this is a shabby
thing he has done," Udall said
in a broadcast interview. "If I
received the money this after-
noon, I'm not sure I could put
it to use in time for Michigan.
"I think Jerry Ford planned
it exactly that way, so that
Ronald Reagan especially and
Mo Udall would not have time
to utilize the money in Mich-
igan."
THE ARIZONA congressman
said he hoped the restoration of
funds would help him "close the
gap" against frontrunner Car-
ter. In earlier remarks to re-
porters, he declared for the first
time that he expects to beat

Carter here for his first primary
victory.
"I don't expect to lose in
Michigan," he said. "We're be-
hind, we're running an underdog
race, but we expect to close the
gap."
Udall started off his latest
round of campaigning outside a
Marathon Oil refinery where he
called for a breakup of the
giant oil companies and charged
that Carter has spoken out both
for and against the proposal.
UDALL BROUGHT reporters
to an open field across the high-
way from the oil refinery in sub-
urban Ecorse to deliver his first
"one-a-day truth capsule to the
public" on Carter's wavering
positions on the issues.
He said that while he co-
authored legislation to "break
up the giant oil companies and
restore competition to American
energy production and market-
ing," Carter has both supported
and opposed the idea.
"In Iowa and other Northern
states, Carter has clearly stated
that he supports breaking up
vertically integrated conglomer-
ates-companies that control oil
production from the wellhead to
the gas pump," Udall said.
"But down in Texas and Okla-
homa, Carter sings a different
tune. The Kansas City Star re-
ported Carter saying: 'I think I
am the only Democratic candi-
date who hasn't called for dives-
titure of the oil companies.' "

An apparent assault on a ref-
erence librarian in the Harlan
Hatcher Graduate Library
sparked rumors of a shooting on
campus yesterday.
Mary George, who was work-
ing on a card file at the time of
the attack, was struck on the
head from behind, apparently
with a blunt object. However
she did not see her assailant.
"I THOUGHT I had been shot
at first," she said, "but I was
just stunned."
According to Library Director
Robert Starring, "The victim
thought she heard a shot as she
was struck. But it wasn't a
shooting, it was a felonious as-
sault."
A police department source
who preferred to remain name-
less indicated that p e r h a p s
George was mistaken. "She may
have fallen off her chair and hit
her head," he said, "or maybe
she had some type of seizure."
BUT LIEUTENANT Richard
Hill of the Ann Arbor Police De-
partment said the matter was
still under investigation. "We
are investigating it as an as-
sault," he said.
University S a f e t y Director
Frederick Davids agreed. "Our
report indicates that she thought
she was struck," he said. "There
was some speculation that she
was mistaken, but I can't say
that. I have no reason to doubt
her story. Her doctor indicated

that she was struck by a blunt
instrument or a fist with a ring
on it."
While there were no witnesses
to the assault, Davids indicated
that some unidentified persons
had been seen by two or three
employes. "But that's not un-
usual in the library," he added.
HE SAID that the incident
occurred in a "fairly remote
area of the library."
"It was in one of the carral
areas," he said. "Some one
could slip in or out without be-
ing seen."
No reason has been given for
the cause of the assault. "There
was no money around," said
Davids, "and she had not repri-
manded anyone or told anyone
to leave the library . . . it's
quite a mystery."
George said that in six years
at the library she had never had
any problems before, and did
not plan to let this affect her
work. "I expect to be back to-
morrow morning if there's no
complications," she said.
EXPECT LONGER LIFE
NEW YORK (R'}) - American
life exectancy has increased by
25 years since the beginning of
the century, according to the
Institute of Life Insurance.
The institute says a person
born now can expect to live
nearly 72 years, while a person
born in 1900 had a life expec-
tancy of 47 years.
