INDEPENDENT NO, YES, MA YBE ...

MILWAUKEE (AP)-The Question
just won't go away. Everywhere he
goes digging for votes, John Anderson
answers no, he's not thinking about
running as an independent candidate;
no, he's not ready to give up his quest
for the Republican presidential
nomination. And, no, he won't
absolutely rule out either one.
However, if he doesn't get 25 per cent
of the vote in Wisconsin this Tuesday,
Anderson says he'll think seriously
about giving it all up.
BY THE END of a long day's
campaigning for Wisconsin's primary,
. Anderson gets a little testy when The
Question is posed once more by
reporters on his plane.
"How many times do I have to say the
same thing," he says. "I'm trying to
win the Republican nomination in the
state of Wisconsin. Lord! You've seen
the kind of schedule I keep. I don't sit up
nights thinking about independent
candidacies and third parties. I go to
sleep and worry about where I'm going
to be the next day."
The reporter apologizes for touching
a sensitive nerve and Anderson waves
him off. "I'm just being my usual
emphatic self," he says. "Other people
are talking about independent
candidacies and third parties. Not me.
Yeah, the media. This is media hype at

"THE OFFICER came in, checked
the restaurant out, went back outside
and sent in the two guys," he explained.
"Our waitresses were in a rush, the
lights are very low to begin with, and
the hats prevented them from seeing
their faces clearly. They should have
checked for the I.D.'s, but I still think it
was a cheap move on the police's part."
An unidentified manager of Manikas

hat, and ordered a couple of drinks.

"They (proponents of increased
defense funding) have a lot of votes,"
Pursell said. "The Southern
Democratic coalition and the
Republican party want a major
increase in the defense budget."
Defense spending currently accounts
for about 23 per cent of a federal budget
of some $600 billion. A reduction of
about $16- billion is expected from
various areas of the budget.
Bill Kerans, Pursell's news
secretary, said federal revenue
sharing to both states and cities may be
completely eliminated. The state of
Michigan currently receives $95 million
from the federal revenue sharing fund.
Such a cut would probably have "a
domino effect" on the University,
according to Pursell, because much of
the University budget is derived from a
