MSA coordinates vol

By DAVID MEYER
A massive voter registration drive,
coordinated by the Michigan Student
Assembly, will. be launched next week
On an attempt to increase student
political clout, according to MSA of-
ficials.
MSA President Marc Breakstone said
a successful drive could substantially
improve the power of student-interest
lobbyists both in Washington and in
Lansing. Breakstone also mentioned
the possibility of, establishing a per-
manent Lansing-based MSA lobbyist.
0 "Students are one segment of society

that are disproportionately unrepresen-
ted in the *electoral process,"
Breakstone said. "By registering
students, we're empowering students."
MSA OFFICIALS said they hope
students will mobilize particularly to
vote on two ballot proposals. "There
are several issues on the November
ballot that severely and directly affect
students," Breakstone said. MSA sup-
ports a proposal to lower the minimum
.drinking age to 19 and opposes the Tisch
tax cut proposal.
Jonathon Feiger, MSA vice president
for legislative relations and official
student lobbyist, emphasized the need

ter rive
to register to vote in order to have in-
fluence. "It's no.good to have a student
know about Tisch if he can't vote again-
st it," Feiger said.
The primary force behind the
registration drive, Feiger said MSA has
solicited the help of about 65 non-
partisan registrars from various local
organizations. Registration tables will
be set up on campus and in all the dor-
mitories, and registrars will canvas the
student precincts in a door-to-door
search for eligible persons, Feiger said.
The drive is scheduled to begin this
Sunday and continue through Oct. 6, the
deadline for registration to vote in the
November election.

through which 40 percent of the Free
World's oil flows.
Some 17.3 million barrels of oil pass
through the strait each day. The United
States imports 2 million barrels a day of
Persian Gulf oil, or about 9 percent of
total U.S. oil needs. Japan relies on the
gulf for about 70 percent of its oil and
Western Europe for 45 percent.
IN PARIS, Iraqi Deputy Prime
Minister Tarek Aziz told French
President Giscard d'Estaing Iraq did
not want to interfere with shipping in
the gulf.

In New York, Treasury Secretary
William Miller said the Carter ad-
ministration had "contingency plans
for an interruption of oil supplies, but
we do not think that will happen."
Iraqi neighbor Kuwait received the
thousands of American and other
foreign refugees who streamed out of
Iran yesterday. The lucky ones got out
by car. Others crossed the desert sands
on foot.
Arriving in Amsterdam, Holland, af-
ter a flight from Kuwait, Briceson Cook
of Houston, Tex. said his company
evacuated its executives from the bom-

bed Iraqi port of Basra but left him and
the others to fend for themselves.
REPORTS FROM Beirut indicate the
Iraqi attacks on Iran have not en-
dangered the lives of the 52 American
hostages. A spokesman at the Iranian
Revolutionary Guard headquarters in
Tehran said yesterday by telephone,
"They are all right. They are in safe
places." The spokesman, who refused
to give his name when called by The
Associated Press, added, "As we
know, the militant students have moved
them to different places, but they are
all right."

As one of America's largest and most innovative corporations,
Gould presents a world of career opportunity for engineers and
science graduates. Few companies can rival our diversity and
company-wide commitment to creative innovations. To give you a
picture of the broad spectrum of Gould careers, we present aview of
our major business groups and a chart showing opportunities
throughout our corporation.
J $t k :A THIS IS
ff OPPORTUNITY
ELECTRONICS
We are building on our strong
market share to boldly position
ourselves as product innovators in
electronics... our fastest growing
field. We're already attheforefront
of industry leadership in such
areas as programmable con-
trollers, logic analyzers and ultra-
thin electrolytic copper foil. We are strongly committed to R & D in
instrumentation, printed circuit materials and improved products. Gould
is also recognized as a leader in such national defense areas as anti-
submarine warfare sensors and weapons, trainers and flight simulators.
THIS IS OPPORTUNITY
ELECTRICAL _
Throughout our Electrical
Group the focus is on
product development to
meet the demands of the:
increasing dependence on<
electricity in the world r
economy. Technical innova-
tions and leadership are
again the keys. You find
innovation at work in our
energy saving E-plus'"lineof
electrical motors that are
20% more efficient than conventional motors...in circuit breakers
and combination motor starters that are bringing new life to an old
industry. We are making investments now...in both capital and
career opportunities...to create and improve products for the
electrical power distribution channel.
THIS IS OPPORTUNITY
Behind the big success
stories of our Battery
Group is a continuing
record of creativity.
The breakthroughs
have been revolution-
ary. Gould introduced
the first completely
sealed maintenance
free battery... now a
cornerstone of the
automotive market.
..Gould developed the
A9 zinc-air battery - now
finding many uses in
miniaturized circuitry. And our developmental batteries for
electrical vehicles are bringing the experimental vehicle closer to
reality.

: r THIS IS
OPPORTUNITY
..:RESEARCH AND
DEVELOPMENT
Our commitment to R & D is
lasting and deep. Gould
researchers develop new
products at each of the27 division
development centers and at four
corporate R & D laboratories. The
emphasis of the research is on
integrating technological breakthroughs into new and improved
product and process applications. Examples of this work now in
progress include the nickel-zinc battery for the all electric car, and a
rubber recycling process developed by Gould that is now being
commercialized. Both are groundbreaking projects; both are beyond
the scope of most companies. Yet they are typical of the ambitious work
that the Gould R & D Group undertakes.
