Abzug urges
passage of
ERA bill
(Continued from Page 1)
"Maybe if we're lucky, they'll let us in-
to the whole thing," Abzug quipped.
THE ACTIVIST said abortion is a
vital issue facing women and that she is
a proponent of free choice. "No one
should be forced to have an abortion
against her will and no one should be
forced to have a child against her will,"
she said.
"One of the strengths of this country
is that we have great respect for the in-
stitution of religion and separation of
church and state," Abzug said. "We
have to stick to right of choice."
President Carter has lifted controls
on oil, Abzug said. This has caused oil
prices to soar. Only one presiddntial
candidate promised oil price
regulation, she said, and he is Teddy
Kennedy.
Abzug said the majority of President
Carter's budget cuts are in areas where
people can't afford to have them cut.
AL ENGSTROM "Some people in this country are
going to be asked to be super-
hooting at patriots-they're going to be without a
job." One to two million people could
loose their jobs beca'use of budget cuts,
Abzug explained.
She said she is frightened because
t "the country is letting this go on."
In New York and Connecticut they
people feel protested by voting for Kennedy, she
our Dresence said.

-,The Easter Ham Shoot, a, target-shooting compe
?nsored by the University ROTC, continued yesti
espite the objections of a campus religious group.
Members of the World Peacemakers, a group of ab(
sponsored by the Wesley Foundation, distributed leafle
entrance to the building, but more than 200 people
participated so far in the week-long event.
The Peacemakers are asking people not to particip
the event since it occurs during the Christian Holy Wee]
the Jewish Passover.
CMPETITORS SHOOT at a series of targets hopi
store high enough to win a trophy, if they are member
;aanor a ham, if they are in individual competition.
*'Everybody respects this as a special time of year,'
Lena Rucknage.'of the Peacemakers. "This is an ind
way to celebrate."1
"We feel that all military weapons-even in t
practice-are used in training to kill people, and that d(
fit with Holy Week," she said.

Once the field is honed downed to
candidates who have less than the
requisite quotient, the candidates with
the lowest number of first-place votes is
dropped from contention, and the
second-place votes on his or her ballot
are added on to other candidates' first-
place vote totals.
This process continues for second-
and third-place votes, and until all the
seats are filled. A

REV. Al
ANN ARBOR used a preferential Reside
system for the April, 1975 mayoral elec-
tion - but "because of the uproar, it
was abandoned;" according to Deputy
City Clerk Winifred Northcross.
OAt the time, there were three
mayoral candidates an incumbent
Republican, a Democrat, and a Human
Rights Party (HRP) candidate. The
Republican won the greatest number of
votes, but liberal HRP voters apparen-
tly listed the Democrat as their second
choice, and thus he was elected, North-t
cross said.
She said that citizens complained that
*ir votes went to the Democrat even
ihough they voted HRP, and the HRP
"ended up feeling like it had been
used."
Romeo agreed with Chamberlin,
saying, "The advantage to preferential
voting is that it allows a wide array of
students to be elected from different
parties and viewpoints. It allows for a
sort of coalition government."
But Romeo said the system has its
sadvantages: It's not well understood
:or widely used; it slows down the
tabulation of results, and it's slightly
more expensive.
Chamberlin said that besides being
"clumsy," the transferable system has,
few faults, and might be used more ex-
tensively in government except that
people are used to the plurality system.

there to be an avenue for discussion," he said.
MAJOR JOE BLAIR, chairman of the Army ROTC
program, said the Peacemakers had a right to present their
views but disagreed with them. "The intent is target
shooting, not military training," he said.
The Peacemakers object particularly to the "Lucky
Shoot" offered in the event, since it involes an M-16 rifle,
described by the group's leaflet as "a weapon designed to do
maximum damage to human flesh."
Major Blair pointed out that much smaller ammunition
than the regular M-16 version is being substituted for the
Ham Shoot.
The purpose of the Ham Shoot is to publicize and generate
funds for the ROTC intercollegiate rifle team, according to
Blair. Proceeds will go to members of the team as
compensation for expenses incurred while traveling to meets
throughout Michigan and Ohio.
The team finished in second place this season.
