'as in Washington plotting an indepen-
ent run for the White House.
Anderson, virtually out of the GOP
ace and not even on the Pennsylvania
allot, was on the verge of announcing
e will run as an independent, liberal
lternative to Carter and Reagan.
"I AM leaning strongly towards an
idependent candidacy, but I have not
et made a final decision," said Ander-
n. He was expected to make a formal
nnouncement next week-in time to
hake the deadline to get on the ballot in
ew Jersey.

Former national field director for
Anderson's Republican campaign,
Jane Fowler, has left to begin a petition
drive to get Anderson on the ballot in
Massachusetts.
Massachusetts is significant because
it is one of two states with approaching
deadlines to get on the ballot and one he
must have if he has any hopes of win-
ning the presidency.
Anderson's decision was boosted by a
New York Times-CBS poll that showed
fully half the voters were unhappy
about being faced with a choice bet-
ween Carter and Reagan in November.
Republican National Chairman Bill
Brock pleaded with Anderson not to
make a run that "obviously will have an
enormously negative impact on
Republican candidates at all levels."

National presidential politics .came
to Ann Arbor yesterday in the person of
Kathleen Kennedy Townsend, who
appeared here in an attempt to garner
funds for her uncle Sen. Edward
Kennedy's (D-Mass.) nearly barren
local war chest.
Townsend, daughter of late Sen.
Robert Kennedy (D-N.Y.), made stops
here at an early morning fund-raising
breakfast and an afternoon coffee hour.
TOWNSEND answered questions
about her uncle's posiitons on various
domestic and foreign affairs and
assessed his chances in the upcoming
presidential primaries.
We're ahead in the polls in
Pennsylvania and won a recent straw
vote in California," Townsend beamed
at a press conference at the lavish
home of Second Congressional District
Kennedy for President Committee co-
chairman George Wahl Sallade.
"We expect to win big in the large
industrial states," she continued.
TOWNSEND SAID a recent Kennedy
victory in Arizona over President
Carter gave her uncle's campaign a
needed shot in the arm. "We carried the
Mexican-American vote there with the
help of Cesar Chavez and the United
Farm Workers," she said, "but.
additionally, we proved we could carry

voters from both liberal and
conservative factions of the party."
Townsend, a 28-year-old lawyer from
New Haven, Conn., devoted most of her
comments to attacks on the politics of
her uncle's competitor for the
Democratic nomination.
"I think Carter has devoted too much
of his time trying to become president
and not to the job of being president,"
she said. "I've talked to a lot of people,a
nd they say they are dissatisfied with
the things he has done as president, or
hasn't done, I should say.
"CARTER SUPPORTERS say the
government cannot solve the problems
of inflation and high unemployment
rates," Townsend continued. "I say
that attitude stands directly against
everything the Democratic party has.
ever stood for."
Townsend also had some harsh
comments fog, "the new darling of the
nation's campuses," Rep. John
Anderson (R-Ill.).
"Lots of students think he'd make a
wonderful president," she said. "As it
turs out, nobody recognizes the fact
that he has. consistently been given a
low rating by the Americans for
Democratic Action during his time in
Congress, meaning his record has been
poor on issues like nuclear power, civil
rights, and welfare programs."

CINENMAI
COMING HOME
(Hal Ashby, 1978)
Winner of 5 Academy Awards, this film returns us to the Sixties in a dramb
of love and war. The insistent beat of such artists as RICHIE HAVENS and
the ROLLINGwSTONES combine with the superb cinematography of Haskell
Wexler to create a backdrop of paranoia and passion against which the
tender love affair of a odraoleaic Vietnam vet and a Marine officer's wife
develops. JON VOIGHT won the Academy Award and Cannes Film Festival
Award for Best Actor, and JANE FONDA won the Academy Award for Best
Actress. Also starring BRUCE DERN.

of the United States Senate, his run for
the presidency has been overshadowed
by the 1968 driving accident on the
Chappaquiddick bridge in which Mary
Jo Kopechne was killed.
But Townsend said the senator has
risen above the incident. "That

occurred more than 12 years ago," she
said. "He was subjected to criticism
then and rightfully so. But he could
have chosen to retreat or to try and
make the country better. He's chosen
the latter, and has shown incredible
courage to do so."

While Sen. Edward Kennedy rested,
President Carter and his wife Rosalynn
campaigned vigorously Friday for
votes in Pennsylvania, with the first
lady accusing her husband's rivals of
"playing on" the frustrations of the
Iranian crisis.
Carter stayed in Washington, but
found time to grant interviews to Pen-
nsylvania broadcasters and
newspapers. Mrs. Carter stumped for
votes in Philadelphia, the state's

largest city, before Tuesday's presiden-
tigqlprimary.
IN AN INTERVIEW with
Westinghouse Broadcasting System,
which has several outlets in Pen-
nsylvania, Carter delivered what may
have been his sharpest attack yet
against Kennedy.
In labeling his challenger a big spen-
der, Carter said: "The only reductions
in expenditures that I know he (Ken-
nedy) has advocated have been in the
defense budget."
