O'Reilly stresses
student concerns

The Michigan Daily-Tuesday, September 30, 1980-Page 3

By SUE INGLIS
In exchange for student support,
*athleen O'Reilly offered leadership
and action on issues that concern
students.
The Democratic candidate for U.S.
Congressman Carl Pursell's Second
District seat made her plea for votes
to about 200 students yesterday on the
steps of the Graduate Library.
Te 33-year-old former director of the
donsumer Federation of America
ned an attack on her Republican op-
Wnent by asking the crowd, "Have you
ewer heard your present congressman
speak out on student issues?" Pursell is
seeking a third term in the House of
Riepresentatives.
'WELL AWARE that the Second
District has a larger student population
than other congressional districts in the
nation, O'Reilly said she finds it
"dreadful" that students spend so
much time and money earing a degree
dnly to be unsure of a job upon
MWraduation.
"I am not afraid to speak out on your
behalf. There is a decided lack of
visible leadership for students in this
district," O'Reilly said.
The candidate, who prides herself
on her outspokenness on the issues,
told the students gathered around her,
''I don't say one thing on the steps of the
diag and then crawl home on a
noonless night to Plymouth and hope
o one heard me.'
TO THE ATTENTIVE group of
students O'Reilly voiced support for the
Equal Rights Amendment, funding
abortions for low-income women,
national health insurance, controls on-
the use of the chemicals PBB and PCB,.
and penal code restructuring.
Instead of decontrolling oil and
natural gas, O'Reilly proposes a federal
*prograni to import oil to sell to the lowest
bidders as a check against "the
billions" .that oil companies "have
taken out of our pockets."

O'Reilly said she opposes the expan-
sion of nuclear energy and suggested
the expansion of wind, solar, and
geothermal energy would decrease oil
and gas consumption more effectively
than the"present policy of pricing oil
through the roof."
THE DEMOCRATIC challenger also
made a strong stand for women's
rights. "We women know what our
problems are. No one needs to tell us,"
she shouted to her audience.
O'Reilly labeled Pursell's Women's
Task Force, which is drafting a bill of
women's rights, a "stall tactic" which
is insulting to women.
Citing her participation in women's
rights demonstrations, including a July
1978 march in Washington, O'Reilly
said, "Rallies are the icing on the cake.
I've been there for the icing and also the
cake."
LSA SENIOR Ellen Walsh said she
was impressed with O'Reilly's views.,
"I think she's great. I agree with
almost everything she said."
Another spectator, LSA junior Neil
Nathanson, commented, "She's for-
ceful, but a little too mad. She sounds
like there is a lot wrong. She wants to do
something about it, and she is mad."
Meanwhile, Pursell's campaign
secretary Bill Kerans said the
congressman is currently working
toward the repeal of the "Maybank
Amendment." The legislation would
allow the Department of Defense to
allocate money to combat unem-
ployment by granting defense
procurement contracts in areas of his
unemployment.
Kerans said Pursell's campaign
strategy is to divide the congressman's
time between the three coun-
ties-Monroe, Washtenaw, and part of
Wayne-in his district. He said 'the
limited time left in the campaign and
Pursell's busy schedule put the cam-
paign effort "at a distinct handicap.
"I would hope that (among voters)
there is some residue of good will and
knowledge," Kerans said.
