Ford urges tax aid for industry

such a disaster in the 1920s and 30s
unless there is deliberate dumping."
Replying to questions at a morning
press conference, Ford repeated that
he would support the Republican par-
ty's nominee in 1980. He has so far
withheld an endorsement of either
Ronald Reagan, George Bush, or John
"I would hope that through
discussions with the Republican
nominee that I would have some input

into the next administration. And if I
were satisfied with those discussions, I
would become more enthusiastic,"
Ford said. He acknowledged that,
Reagan would likely be that nominee,
and that President Carter would likely
win the Democratic nomination.
Ford rapped a possible third party
bid by Anderson. An independent An-
derson on the November ballot "could
have the election thrown into the House
of Representatives where the
politicians, and not the people, would

elect a president," he said.
Students who attended classes Ford
taught later in the day reported that he
advocated eliminating the electoral
college in order to avoid the problems
third party candidacies present.
They also said he proposed regional
primaries instead of holding primaries
state by state.
In an 11:00 a.m. lecture to about
1,100 students in Rackham Auditorium,
Ford commented that John Anderson
"is not a flaming liberal as some would
have us believe."
At yesterday's press conference Ford
attacked President Carter's economic
and energy policies.
He called Carter's claim that OPEC
oil price increases were responsible for
inflation "hogwash."
"At the most, out of the 18 per cent
(rate of) inflation, the increase due to
OPEC prices would be two to three per
Ford blamed the lack of a national
energy policy on Congress, but he
slammed the Carter administration for
not providing leadership in energy con-
Ford said he did not know the
specifics of cuts proposed by Carter in
federal scholarship and grant
programs for students.
(Carter has proposed raising interest
rates on federal loans to students and
increasing only slightly the amount of
money available next year for grants to
needy students.)
(The Senate is considering a bill that
would raise interest rates slightly,
while a House bill would maintain loan
programs as they are; both houses
would up the government's spending on
"Students wouldn't need anywhere

nbar as much money if students didn't
have 18 per cent inflation," Ford said.
Students in Ford's classes yesterday
said he lectured much like any other
professor would, although they said he
at times injected jabs at the Carter ad-
ministration into response to questions.
"I think I do have a higher opinion of
him than I did. I think he came across
as more articulate than the press has
presented him in the past," one LSA
senior, who asked not to be identified,
said after the lecture in Rackham.

Republicans sue supermarket
CASSOPOLIS-A lawsuit on behalf of nearly 200 persons who became
ill after eating at a Republican fundraiser dinner last month has been filed
by nine Cass County officials and their spouses, it was revealed yesterday.
The county officials and their spouses, who became il following the
March 2 Lincoln Day dinner in Dowagiac, have brought the suit against Zick
Supermarket Inc. of St. Joseph and its owner, Harold Zick.
The suit asked for an unspecified amount of damages for the plaintiffs
because they were served food which allegedly was "contaminated,
defective, spoiled and unfit for human consumption."
Exiles arrive from Havana
SAN JOSE, Costa Rica-More than 230 Cuban exiles arrived from
Havana on two planes yesterday. The arrivals were the first of an estimated
10,800 Cubans who packed themselves into the Peruvian Embassy in Havana
the week of April 4.
The refugees were taken to the Albergue de Berlin, part of a former
prison and now a government guest house. Cuban President Rodrigo Carazo
said Tuesday the refugees would be sent later to Peru, which has agreed to
take 1,000 of the Cubans. About 300 are expected to stay in Costa Rica.
More than half of the refugees have been spoken for. The United States
has agreed to take 3,500. Spain said it will take 500, Canada 300, Ecuador 200,
Belgium 150, and unspecified numbers will go to Argentina, Brazil, West
Germany and Sweden.
Interest rates declini
NEW YORK-The Chase Manhattan Bank Prime Lending Rae
lowered its prime lending rate-the interest 20-Percent
charged to its best corporate.
customers-from 20 per cent to 19%/4 per cent. 19
It was the first reduction for that bank since Split Rate
Nov. 27. Some smaller banks reduced their 18 April16
prime rate to as low as 18 per cent. 20%
Economists said the decline, as well as a 17 18- /4e/
drop in other interest rates, confirmed that a
recession was under way. .6
The bond market, which had been going
down as interest rates went up, staged what 15
was apparently the largest one-day rally in its
history. The yield on long-term Treasury 4
bonds, as high as 12.7 per cent earlier this
year and at 11.44 per cent Tuesday, dropped splat
as low as 10.80 per cent before rising to 11 per 12 Rate
cent in the late afternoon.

Rhodesia to be independent
SALISBURY, Rhodesia-Tonight at midnight, Rhodesia will become
independent Zimbabwe, as a leader of guerrilla fighters once called the
nation's "Enemy No. 1" becomes Prime Minister.
Robert Mugabe, the future Prime Minister faces several stiff tasks, such
as rebuilding the nation after seven years of war, resettling up to a million
war victims and refugees, attracting large amounts of foreign aid and
investment, and keeping the skilled and monied white minority from fleeing.
Mugabe was appointed Prime Minister after British-supervised
elections in February.
Turks ambush American
ISTANBUL, Turkey-Police sources aid an ambush by a terrorist group
yesterday in which an American naval officer and his chauffer were killed
might signal a stepped-up drive against Americans by the terrorist group.
The three attackers were captured after a gun battle with pursuing
police as they fled on a motorcycle. No groups immediately claimed
responsibility for the attack, but authorities said they were members of the
pro-Moscow group.
Seven Americans have been killed by Turkish terrorists during the last
year. There are currently about 5,000 Americans, mainly servicemen and
their dependents, living in Turkey.
Non-stop negotiations on
Palestinian autonomy planned
WASHINGTON-An agreement to hold non-stop negotiations on the
future of 1.2 million Palestinians was reached yesterday after President
Carter's back-to-back summit talks with Egyptian President Anwar Sadat
and Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin.
The negotiations are aimed at translating Begin's 1979 promise of
autonomy for Arabs living under Israel's control into a council elected by
inhabitants of the West Bank of the Jordan River and the Gaza district.
