Ford museum dedication'Grand'

Special to the Daly
GRAND RAPIDS -A few months ago,
it was fashionable in certain cyncial
circles of Grand Rapids to joke that the
Gerald Ford presidential museum had
only three walls because "they just
couldn't find enough memorabilia to fill
Well, not much of that spirit was
evident--even among the cynics--at
yesterday's dedication of the museum
and related festivities.
speeches from such dignitaries as for-
mer French President Valery Giscard
d'Estaing, Canadian Prime Minister
Pierre Trudeau, Speaker of the House
Thomas "Tip" O"neil, President
Reagan, Secretary of State Alexander
Haig and Vice' President George
Bush-offered nothing but praise of
Ford's accomplishments as 38th
president of the United States, and hope
for the future.
"The first time he and I encountered
each other it was in Michigan," Reagan
told the crowd, estimated at 100,000. "I
was a young sports announcer for WHO
in Iowa, and he was the center of the
Michigan death team. Well, I wont lie.
That was about 47 years ago, and
"Since then," Reagan went on, "Ford
has said that both played football, but
he played for Michigan, and I played
for Warner Brothers."
AT THE , DEDICATION, the
president echoed the praise offered by
preceeding speakers, referring to Ford
as a "healer." Both he and Ford, he
said, entered the Oval Office at a time
of low national morale and poor
economic conditions. Ford "helped you
to believe in ourselves again," Reagan
said, adding that he hopes to do the
For the most part, however, politics
played a relatively small role in the
small considering the guests who at-
tended the affair.
Heads in Grand Rapids will be spin-
ning for quite some time as a result of,
the weeklong celebration.
"I COULDN'T believe all the
celebrities," said Diana Walma, 17, a
resident of nearby Byron Center. "I
liked watching all the limos, and I'm
proud of Ford. But I'm also proud of
Grand Rapids for putting it all together.
I was surprised," she said.
A lot of people were surprised. Hun-
dreds crowded around the doors of the
newly opened Grand' Plaza Hotel,
where most of the guests were staying,
hoping to catch a glimpse.
Even inside, with entrance by in-
vitation only, there were semi-stifled
squeals of "My God, it's Trudeau!" and
"Bob Hope. I can't believe it! Bob Hope
and there, he's going to talk to Danny
THE $1,000-A-SEAT Hope show (to be
aired on NBC in October) drew mixed
reactons from those who saw it. Aside
from the ,retakes-there were quite a
few-the program was well-staged.
The Wolverine marching band got
things rolling, bringing the house to its
feet for "Hail to the Victors." And the
show was, after all, in honor of Grand
Rapids' own Jerry-even if there was
quite a bit of ribing at the 38th
"He knew he was going to be presid-
ent while he was playing footbal for
Michigan," Hope told the audience.
"One of his teammates said it took an
act of Congress to get him to make a
CHEVY CHASE-well-known for his
impersonation of "Ford the
Bungler"-wasnt invited, but he might
just as well have been. Between Hopes
jokes about every one present ("I was
relieved when Bush arrived, because
Haig and Tip were fighting about who's
in charge here.") Mark Russell's own
brand of political satire (one of his
milder bits was the three-sided
museum line), and everyone's jab at
the danger of Ford on a golf coprse, the
show could easily have been a roast.
But "don't worry," Hope told the
audience. "A lot of these won't make it
on the air."
The All-American City had been
gearing up all week for yesterday's
finale with ethnic festivals and other
special events. And the Secret Service
has been there, keeping an eye on
things. "We've had Secret Service up to
out teeth," said the owner of a hot dog
stand a block away from the Grand
Plaza. "Nobody could've gotten away
with anything. And the press. All the

dedications of a new art museum, and
the Grand Plaza Hotel and entertain-
ment center estravaganza that plan-
ners say they hope are the beginnings of
a renaissance in Grand Rapids.
"Ford's an OK Guy," according to
Grand Rapids' Junior College
sophomore Greg Wilterdink. "He put us
on the map."~
As Grand Rapids' mayor Abe Drasin
told the crowd at the dediction, "This
city has done'a lot to help shape Gerald
Ford, and he has done a lot for us."
Climbing on the elevator at his hotel,
after all the activities, Ford said he
wanted simply to, "Kick my shoes off,
and put up my feet. I'm tired."
WASHINGTON (AP) - Government,
sources said ysterday that President
Reagan intends to propose abolishing
the Bureau of Alchol, Tobacco, and
Firearms as part of his next round of
budget cuts. The administration also
considered but rejected, abolition of the
Consumer Product Safety Commission.
. In addition, sources who asked not to
be identified by name said the president
is likely to recommend sharp cutbacks
in federal loans and loan guarantees
when he unveils his budget-cutting
package next week. Such a move is
.designed to diminish- the federal
presence in the credit market and
hopefully lead to a decline in interest
rates, officials said.
REAGAN ALSO is expected to an-
nounce plans for a future revision in
may propose more cuts
programs such as Medicare, Medicaid
and welfare that could save several
billion dollars in 1983 and 1984 and as
much as $1.5 billion in the 1982 fiscal
Meanwhile, U.S. economic activity
continued to slide modestly during the
third quarter, the government
disclosed yesterday. The report raised'
the vrosvect that the economy may be
dipping into its eighth recession since
World War II.
Commerce Department sources said
a very preliminary estimate of
economic activity during' the July-
September period showed a slim
decline at an annual rate of .5 percent.
AT THE SAME time, the department
issued a revised report confirming that
economic activity declined during the
second quarter of 1981' But ther
revision showed a smaller decline than
reported last month.A
A second revision of the figures for
the April-June quarter showed that real
output declined at a 1.6 percent annual
In August, the department estimated
the economy declined at a 2.4 percent
annual rate. The month before, it put
the decline at 1.9 percent.
ECONOMIC ACTIVITY is deter-
mined by measuring changes in the
gross national product after adjust-
ments for inflation.
In all, Reagan is expected to call for
reduction of about $16.3 billion in 1982 as
he seeks to hold the federal deficit to
$42.5 billion. The plan he is expected to
unveil would slash spending by between
$70 billion and $75 billion over the next
The latest disclosures of the
president's plans came as more
lawmakers expressed skepticism about
Reagan's announced plans to seek a
new round of cuts, including a delay in
next year's scheduled cost of living in-
creases in Social Security and eight
other programs. f
"THERE IS N4 real consensus on
whether there are the votes to support
these cuts ta this time," said Sen. Ted
Stevens of Alaska, the No. 2 Republican
in the Senate. He suggested a delay,
perhaps until March, before moving
ahead with a new round of cuts.
Stevens' comment came a day after
House Republican leaders told Budget
Director David Stockman privately
they were uncertain about how a plan to
hold down cost-of-living increases
House and Senate Republican leaders -
have scheduled a strategy session
Monday to discuss how to proceed with
the president's requests.
REAGAN HIMSELF is expected to
unveil his plan on Tuesday , or- Wed-
nesday, although House Republican
Leader Bob Michel of Illinois is said to
have suggested that the president delay

protesters outside mosque
CAIRO, Egypt- Flailing away with whips and fists, plainclothes police
beat and arrested dozens of Moslem demonstrators who gathered outside a
Cairo mosque yesterday 4o protest President Anwar Sadat's arrest of
religious leaders accused of fonnenting sectarian strife.
The demonstrators, many of them with bloodied faces, bruises and red
swollen eyes, were herded into police vans and driven off.
The plainclothes officers were backed up by more than a dozen truckloads
of khaki-uniformed police armed with sticks, tear gas and automatic rifles.
It was the second Friday Moslem sabbath in a row that demonstrators
have gathered outside the mosque in Cairo's eastern suburb of Koubbeh to
protest the arrest of a number of Moslem prayer leaders earlier this month.
Dems attack proposed cuts
inSocial Security benefits
WASHINGTON- Democrats escalated their attack on President
Reagan's proposed Social Security cuts yesterday and House leaders urged
quick Senate action to restore the minimum benefit for America's "oldest
House Democratic leader Jim Wright urged "prompt action" by the
Senate to restore the minimum payment eliminated as part of the summer's,
budget bill. The House later voted to restore it.
"Unless the Senate takes action on this bill, these benefits-the meager
$122 a month guarantee-will expire for 3 million Americans, among them
the oldest and the poorest, next February," Wright told a news conference.
A source familiar with Senate deliberations estimated there is a 50-50
chance the Senate will restore the payment for all beneficiaries, depending
on "the level of hysteria."
South African rugby team
keeping low profile
CHICAGO- The members of Springboks, a South African rugby team, are
keeping a low profile here for their first scheduled game on their American
tour, which is in jeopardy because of opposition to racial separation policies
in their homeland.
The 36 athletes, two of them black, have been staying' at the Chicago
Athletic Association's downtown-headquarters, Some were seen late Thur-
sday afternoon downtown on Michigan Avenue after a practice session,
greeting passersby pleasantly but refraining from talking about the tour.
Demonstrations against the team because of apartheid in South Africa has
driven the game against Midwestern ruggers underground, to an un-
disclosed location. It also was not known if the team would remain at the
athletic club, which has been picketed by a local anti-South Africa group. 1
The mayor of Albany, N.Y., on the demand of the governor, on Thursday
canceled an appearance by the team in his city for fear of violent demon-
strations by opponents of apartheid. The American Civil Liberties Union has
taken up the cause of the South Africans, saying they may go to court to have
the Albany game reinstated on free speech grounds.

'WHY DO THE HEATHEN RAGE?'
Psalm 2:1 and Acts 4:25
In the Sermon on the Mount, after telling His disciples, "Ye are the sa
the earth, Ye are the Light of the-world, Let your light so shine"... the
first thing Christ said Was, "Think not I am come to destroy the law and
prophets... Till heaven and earth pass one jot or tittle shall In no wise p
from the law, until all be fulfilled."
When the Apostle John saw the risen and glorified Christ he fell at His f

Life, and may enter in through the gates into the city..." Rev. 22:14.
in the Sermon on the Mount, Mat. 5:38, 39 Christ said, "Ye have heard t
it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth: But I say I u
