"Professor Park was unusual in his devotion to the,
political science department and to the University," said

organizations concerned with Indian affairs, and promoted

Ann Arbor's public school strike con-
tinued yesterday, with no formal
negotiations held in the week-old
Approximately 900 members of the
Ann Arbor Education Association held
a general membership meeting at the,
Michigan Theater yesterday morning.
The meeting was the first since the
teachers voted by a 4-to-1 margin last
Tuesday to strike. A
The meeting, which was open to
teachers' association members only,
included discussion of both salary and
non-salary issues, and of the status of
negotiations, according the AAEA
spokesman Dan Burroughs.
Burroughs said teachers' association
leaders spent slightly more than three
hours explaining various'salary offers
and answering teachers' questions. He
said that AAEA President Richard
Taylor indicated to the teachers that
the school board offered no new
proposals either on Friday or over the
THE TEACHERS' ASSOCIATION
proposed Friday afternoon that the
dispute be settled by binding ar-
bitration. According to Board of
Education President Wendy Barhydt,
the school board decided Saturday not
to accept the proposal.
Barhydt cited several reasons for the
decision. "We feel it's abrogating our
responsibility," she said, noting that
school board members are elected by
the local community, and thus should
settle the dispute. In addition, an out-
side arbitrator would not have a vested
interest in Ann Arbor or familiarity
with the city's background, she said.
"Astmuch as we want the teachers
back to work, we do not feel it's ap-
propriate to submit it to binding ar-
bitration at this time," she added.
Classes were scheduled to begin last
Wednesday, with teachers reporting

From the Associated Press
Ronald Reagan campaigned among
the jobless in the nation's industrial
heartland yesterday and said that for
them, the national recession is really a
While the Republican presidential
nominee hammered away at President
Carter's handling of the economy,
White House press secretary Jody
Powell accused Reagan of trying to
"hide behind" independent candidate
John Anderson and avoid a one-on-one
debate with Carter.
Anderson himself, campaigning in
New York state, said Carter's refusal to
admit him to the first presidential
debate with Reagan "could become one
of the major issues of 1980 cam-
paign"-and one Anderson would win.
IN ADVANCE OF a private dinner
with former President Gerald Ford in
Chicago, Reagan aides said the can-
didate had won a commitment from
Ford to campaign for the GOP stan-
dard-bearer for 11 days this fall. The
aides did not say where or when Ford
would campaign for Reagan.
Visiting Kokomo, Ind., where the
unemployment rate is 19.5 per cent,
Reagan attacked Carter's recovery
program as too late to repair the
economic damage wrought by his
L"It's cynical, it's political and it's too
late," he told several thousand people
in a shopping mall parking lot a few
blocks away from two large auto in-
dustry plants that dominate the area's
Reminding his audience that unem-
ployment in Kokomo is 19.5 per cent,
and 25 per cent in another automobile
town, Flint, Mich., Reagan said,
"Those are the figures that are com-
parable to the Great Depression of the
1930s. That's not the recession he (Car-
ter) speaks of, that's depression."
CARTER TOOK THE day off from
campaigning and remained at the
White House. He is to visit a New Jer-
sey steel plant Tuesday.
Anderson got an assist on the debate
question from an unexpected quarter,
former President Richard Nixon.
"I say include him, and we'll see
which is the better man," the former
president said in an interview prepared
for broadcast Tuesday on NBC-TV's
But Nixon also conceded he might see
things differently if he were in Carter's
position, and might try to exclude An-
derson from the first debate.
NIXON SAID, ANDERSON would
have no chance of playing a key role in
the election or carrying any state in
November if he is excluded from the
Carter has said he is willing to debate
Anderson, but wants to meet Reagan
alone first. Powell said, "We are per-
fectly willing to participate in a multi-
candidate debate, but we feel there has
got to be an assurance that there will
also be a one-on-one debate" between
Carter and Reagan.
China, U.S. reach agreement
to begin commercial aviation
PEKING (AP)-China and the
United States initialed a long-awaited
aviation agreement last night providing
for direct commercial airline service
between the two countries for the first
time in almost 30 years.
The agreement provides for more
than one airline to fly the route, said
Boyd Hight, U.S. deputy assistant
secretary of state for transportation
IN THE FIRST two years, however,
only one U.S. airline will fly the route
that includes Shanghai, Peking, T.okyo,
Honolulu, San Francisco, Los Angeles,
and New York, sources #reported. A
second airline will be added later, sour-
Neither the U.S. nor the Chinese
negotiators would provide further
details on the agreement.
It was signed in the Peking Hotel by
Hight and Lin Zheng, deputy director
general of the Civil Aviation Ad-
ministration of China.
THE AGREEMENT IS to be signed
later in Washington but Hight said he
did not know when. He said he could not
predict whether the first flights would
take place before the end of the year.
It was learned, however, that a major
signing ceremony is planned for
aviation, maritime, textile and possibly
a consular agreement between the U.S.
China had wanted only one carrier on
each side, but the U.S. had insisted on
multiple carriers. Pan American World
Airways, Northwest Airlines, Trans
World Airlines and United Airlines
have expressed interest in the route.
Observers said the route is not busy
enough to justify its use by all four
