Kennedy rips Carter's policies



Kennedy accused President Carter of
"sheer hypocrisy" yesterday and said
the president should drop his candidacy
for re-election if he won't begin
stumping for votes personally.
Addressing a group "of consumer
activists shortly after Carter spoke,
Kennedy also staged a "debate" of
sorts with the just departed president.
read a question that Carter was asked

at a news conference in May 1978, then
played a tape recording of the
president's answer: "We are doing
everything we can now to cut down the
rate of inflation, short of wage and
price controls..."
Kennedy declared, "The fact is that
President Carter's anti-inflation policy
has been a calamity."
Kennedy has been trying to goad the
president out of the White House and
into a campaign debate for weeks.
Carter says, he cannot devote time to
partisan political activity because he is
handling delicate international
situations in Iran and Afghanistan.
THE BACK-TO-BACK speeches by
the two men, 'both seeking the
Democratic Party's 1980 presidential
nomination, marked the closest
Kennedy has come to getting his wish
for a campaign debate, but it wasn't
very close.
The two men arrived at the
Washington hotel where; within a few
minutes of one another, they addressed
the Consumer Federation of America.
But the two apparently did not see or
speak to each other.
THEY SPOKE to the same audience,
from the same platform. But when

Carter spoke, the podium was adorned
with the presidential seal, and he was
greeted with a Marine Band rendition
of "Hail to the Chief."
When Kennedy spoke, the seal was
gone, removed by a White House
military aide. And there was no "Hail
to the Chief."
When Carter spoke, Kennedy listened
in an adjacent room. By the time
Kennedy spoke, Carter had left.

Powell, said, "It was an opportunity to

Kennedy made numerous references
to Carter, none of them gracious.
HE CALLED HIM a "back up, back
down, back off, backlog president" and
criticized his absence from active
campaigning in some of the sharpest
terms he has used to date.
Referring to Presidents Harry
Truman in 1952 and Lyndon Johnson in
1968, Kennedy declared, "They did not

remain candidates while refusing to
campaign. And if President Carter
truly feels that he cannot participate in
the democratic process mandated by
the Constitution, then he should take the
course adopted by his predecessors and
withdraw his candidacy in 1980."
Kennedy also said it was "sheer
hypocrisy" on Carter's part to claim he
doesn't have time to engage in
campaigning because of international

Board of Education members, jolted
by a four-part series of articles in the
Ann Arbor News this week on drug
abuse at Huron High School, asserted

results of a study on the subject at their
Wednesday night meeting.
Earlier in the meeting, the Board
decided not to participate in a Feb. 11
meeting with the city and county
officials to discuss a possible millage
rollback. Board members said they
have not yet discussed the possibility of
a tax cut or the condition of next year's
budget and are not prepared to discuss
the matter.

THE PROPERTY assessments
continue to increase at their present
rate, said school superintendent Harry
Howard, a millage rollback would be
considered. Howard also presented the
Board with an overview of their current
budget, which has a surplus of over $2
million. He said that amount was
enough to operate the district's schools
for two weeks.
The substance abuse report,
prepared by Huron High principal
Ron Tesch, Deputy Superintendent for
Administration Wiley Brownlee, and
district Director of Guidance and
Counseling Tom MacKenzie, dealt with
the nature and extent of drug abuse by

"the lower the self-concept of the

possible cases of sales to underage
people on their regular patrols. "There
are deals where we see someone come
out and you know they aren't old
enough," he said. "So we check them
when they exit."
Workers at some stores say they have
already tightened up, due in large part
to the police program.
"I card everybody now," said Rocky
Rachmaninoff, a clerk at Campus Cor-.
ner. "I know it's me who goes to jail if
somebody gets busted."
JIM DUBER, a worker at Food Mart,
said he is also aware of the recent.
police drive for tighter enforcement. "I
card people unless they look like they
are 23 or 24 or older," he said. "There is
a note about it in the back room."
Tim Smith, another Food Mart em-
ployee said the policy at his store is
"Just don't get caught because the per-
son selling it could be fined also."
According to Rachmaninoff, people
who are underage rarely try to pur-
chase alcohol at Campus Corner.
"That's really surprising," she said. "I

think everybody knows they have
cracked down, so they get people to buy
for them."
THE MOST regular offender, accor-
ding to Woodruff and other officers, is
the North Main Grocery, located at 207
N. Main St. In the two raids conducted
by police, the store was cited once on
the first and twice on the second check.
The second citation was for permitting
a person under 18 to sell alcohol. "I
think he (the owner) figures he is going
to lose his license anyway," said
Woodruff, "so he keeps on doing it."
Finding people who are of legal age to
make the purchase is the best way to
get around the crackdown according to
Smith. "I wish people who were under
21 would do me a favor, get a little
humble and ask someone to buy for
them," he said.
Smith also said'fake IDs are another
means of acquiring alcohol illegally. "A
lot of people have obviously fake IDs
but if it's not too obviously fake, I'll ac-
cept it," said Smith. "If a person has
ID, I can't not sell to them."
