Carter,
Reagan
look for
Midwest
victories

From the Associated Press
While Edward Kennedy was singing "I Love New York"
and George Bush reveled in the embrace of his native'
Connecticut, President Carter and Ronald Reagan
pointed yesterday to next week's primary tests as likely to
leave their challengers with memories of a one-night
stand.
The president's spokesmen took Kennedy's stunning
upsets in Tuesday's delegate-rich twin bill with
considerable if not crafted grace. But they made it clear
they expected the Massachusetts senator's rseurgence to
be short-lived.
CARTER'S CAMPAIGN chairman, I obert Strauss,
predicted the president will be back in the winning column
in next Tuesday's Democratic races in Wisconsin and
Kansas. Meanwhile, he told the Carter faithful, "When
you lose, lose with grace."
Indeed, Kennedy himself appeared to be all but
conceding the Wisconsin and Kansas contests. His
schedule as of yesterday called for nothing more than a

single appearance this weekend in Kans'as City and none
in Wisconsin.
The president has an overall lead of 745.3 delegates to
Kennedy's 385.1. California Gov. Edmund Brown Jr., who
hoped to succeed Kennedy as Carter's only credible rival
in the Wisconsin primary, is still looking for his first
delegate. Needed for the Democratic nomination: 1,666,
delegate votes.
REAGAN HAS BUILT his lead to 293 delegates to 68 for
Bush and 45 for Rep. John Anderson of Illinois - with 998
needed to nominate at the GOP convention in Detroit in
July.
Reagan dismissed the Connecticut showing, saying he
was "delighted" with New York but knew all along that
"victory was not something we exactly lusted for or
thought was in the cards in Connecticut, it being George's
territory."
Carters press secretary, Jody Powell, said Tuesday's
upsets would not change the president's determination to
remain in the White House while Americans are still held
hostage in Iran.

House panel reverses tax break stance

WASHINGTON (AP) House
budget-writers, reopening con-
sideration of the balanced 1981 federal
budget they approved less than one
week ago, yesterday -deleted proposed
changes that would have taken a $3.5
billion bite out of various tax breaks.
The House Budget Committee voted
18-7 to delete the package of.tax

revisions, which included reductions in
the business-lunch deduction and
elimination of some tax breaks for the
oil industry.
COMMITTEE liberals favored the
tax changes as a way to force wealthy
Americans to share in the sacrifices
needed to balance the budget.
The move reduces the committee's

Citicorp will move
unless N.Y. law lifted

proposed budget surplus from $5.5
billiot to $2 billion.
Rep. Giaimo (D-Conn.), committee
chairman, urged removal of the $3.5
billion package of tax revisions, saying
it was included in the main budget by
mistake amid the confusion of ap-
proving the budget last Thursday.
IN URGING their removal, Giaimo
also said the tax changes were not
likely to be enacted. "Certainly we
don't want to mislead the people and
the Congress" atout the size of the
budget surplus, he said.
By an 18-7 vote, the committee also
rejected a liberal proposal to add $500
million for local revenue sharing to help
cities. President Carter is expected to
make a similar recommendation.
Last week, the committee proposed
elimination of the $1.7 billion federal
revenue-sharing program for states, a
move that would cut back funds for
some localities.
GIAIMO SAID the full House might
still try to act on the budget propsoal
before leaving for its Easter recess
April 4. Earlier this week, House
leaders said the vote probably Would

come after the recess ends April 15.
The House committee has propsed a
$611.8 billion budget for fiscal 1981,
which starts Oct. 1. If approved by
Congress, it would be the first balanced
federal budget in12years.
The House committee action came as
the Senate Budget Committee began
drafting its own budget proposals.
Meanwhile, White House press
secretary Jody Powell told reporters
that the administration's proposed
budget cuts for fiscal 1981 will be
"significantly greater" than the $13
billion previously targeted.
He indicated the cuts would be closer
to the Senate's overall $16 billion figure.

NEW YORK (AP) - Citicorp, one of
the nation's largest consumer lenders,
intends to move its credit card division
to Sioux Falls, S.D.,-by summer unless
New York's usury ceiling is. lifted, a
company official said yesterday.
The giant holding company, whose
chief subsidiary is Citibank, made its

ISA CAMPAIGNING UNDERWAY:
Candidate les complaint

BY MITCH STUART
Even before the MSA candidates had
drawn for ballot positions Tuesday
night, Election Director Ross Romeo
eceived his first official complaint
out the Michigan Student Assembly
election proceedings.
Independent candidate Bruce Brum-
berg, running for an LSA represen-
tative seat, objected to one party's use
of. the~ame "Independent Students,'"
but ,Romeo ruled yesterday that the
name is valid because of the way it will
be represented on the ballot.
MEMBERS OF the Independent
Students Party will havs "I.S." after
their names on the ballot, while in-
ependent candidates will have "Ind."
In a letter to Romeo dated March 25,
Brumberg wrote, "Running as an in-
dependent for MSA, I vehemently ob-
ject to allowing a student organization
to run under the party label 'Indepen-

dent Students.' The members of this
organization obviously calculated that
-calling their party 'Independent
Students' would mislead students into
thinking they were independent can-
didates."
Bob Redko,'chairman of the newly-
formed I.S. party, said "the charges
are obviously unfounded.
"THE REASON behind selecting the,
name Independent Students basically is
that all the students running in our par-
ty are independents," he said.
Redko added, "What (Brumberg)
should realize is that the support IS
gives its candidates will help all in-
dependents."
Besides the difference in the way
names will appear on the ballot, Romeo
cited the fact that IS is a student
organization recognized by MSA in
February, and the fact that indepen-

dents always appear at the top of any
ballot category as the reasons for his
ruling.
Brumberg said he will persist in his
fight to force the party to change its
name by appealing to the election
board.
He said he saw some campaign
literature which read, "Vote Indepen-
dent Students," which he called "very
confusing."
In his letter to Romeo, Brumberg
argued, "If the students of this
organization truly consider themselves
independents, then they should in-
dividually file as independents. Since
they are a party and are therefore per-
mitted to spend more and receive more
money from MSA, their official name
should be changed to 'Independent
Students Party'."

Sioux Falls, Citibank spokesman John
Maloney said.
THE COMPANY had said previously
that it was interested in shifting its
credit card operations out of New York,
but had not mentioned a timetable.
By establishing Citibank, South
Dakota, Citicorp would be able to
escape New York's interest rate limit of
18 per cent on credit card balances of
less than $500 and 12 per cent on balan-
ces above $500. Beginning May 1, South
Dakota's usury- law ceiling on credit
cards will be 24 per cent on balances of
less than $500 and 18 per cent on larger
amounts.
Citibank, the country's second-
largest bank with 5.8 million Visa and
MasterCard credit cards outstanding,
would add about $9 million in revenue to
the South Dakota economy, Gov. Bill
Janklow estimates.
JOHN REED, a Citicorp senior
executive vice president, told a group of
securities analysts Tuesday that the
company hopes to make the move to
Sioux Falls by July.
Maloney said yesterday, however,
that the company has no specific target
date for completing the move and is
still hoping; the New York usury limit
will be lifted soon, either by the state
legislature or as part of a nationwide
congressional override.
Later yesterday, the Bank of
America, the largest commercial bank-
in the nation, unveiled another strategy
to make borrowing costlier. The bank
said it will increase its minimum mon-
thly payment requirements on Visa and
MasterCard accounds and will stiffen
requirements for new card applicants.

Some support,.no MSA funds for Fishbowl

i (Continued from Page 1)
without a financial commitment by
MSA."
MSA MEMBERS yesterday seemed
more willing than they had been to
discuss the problems they see with the
project. Member Tam Robinson said,
"If we lived in the best of all possible
worlds, I'd be in favor of renovating the
Fishbowl. However, we do have a
security problem on campus."
Robinson said there are many other
reas which he feels should have a
igher priority for MSA than the Fish-
bowl.
Robinson, running this year on the
People's Action Coalition (PAC)/Black
Student Union (BSU) slate, called the
Fishbowl project "clearly a political
move. SABRE (Student Alliance for
Better Representation) has done this
time and again. They plan these things
and they ask us to say yes or no - then
they show us the price tag."
CANALE AND Adams, the chief
proponents of the proposal, are the
chairman and president of SABRE
respectively.
Robinson cited another example of a
SABRE "political move," naming a
recent MSA trip to Washington taken by

i

I

several assembly members. He said
the funding for that trip was under-
taken in the same fashion.
Assembly representative and SABRE
member David Trott responded to
Robinson's criticism: "That really
provokes a streak of anger in me*
because all year long, J.P. (Adams)
has been coming to the assembly and
telling us about this project:
"NOW EITHER Robinson doesn't
have the brains to understand or he
hasn't been in attendance. This is not a
partisan activity," Trott said.
Trott added, "We've already got'a lot
of mud-slinging going on in the cam-

paign. (Robinson) is maybe crying over
spilt milk that he didn't get in on the
ground floor.'
Several MSA members supported
Adams' theory that the request for fun-
ding was the stumbling block Tuesday
night, but Robinson said he would not
support the project even if it were to be
funded totally by the University.
HE SAID the Fishbowl renovation
should not be ny higher a priority for
the University than for MSA.
MSA member Tim Feeman said, "I
don't think it's a priority and I don't
think the Assembly should be spending
money on this type of project."

At Tuesday night's meeting, Feeman
told the assembly he has had negative
feedback from some of his constituents.
"The reaction that I've gotten to the
proposal to renovate the Fishbowl is
Great. Is that what my money is going
for? Is that why tuition is going up? Is
that why there is no real effort to fund
affirmative action programs?'
