Sporting a block "M" baseball hat
and GOP demeanor, former president
Gerald Ford arrived by helicopter
yesterday afternoon at Ferry Field to
chat briefly with Wolverine gridders
before speaking to several hundred
students at Regents' Plaza.
After watching a new version of the
team ,he played for and captainedx
some 45 years ago, Ford interrupted
the football workout.'
"I didn't mean to cut into your prac-
tice," Ford apologized to University
head coach Bo Schembechler. But
neither Schembechler nor the team
seemed to mind.
"ARE YOU GOING to haved a
debate with Carter?" one of the
players asked, pointing to star wide-
receiver Anthony Carter. "This car-
ter has talent," the player added as FOPMER PR
his teammates voiced their approval. Regents' Plaz

President Carter's chances for re-election are
virtually nil and the Nov. 4 presidential election is
now simply "a choice between Anderson and,
Reagan," Keke Anderson, wife of independent
presidential candidate John Anderson, said last
night.
Anderson, in town for a campaign fundraiser, said
at a press corTerence that Carter's recent statements
associating Ronajg Reagan with war. and- social.
divisiveness demonstrate the president's fear of a
Republican victory.
"HE (CARTER) IS getting hysterical," Anderson
said. 'He knows he is not going to win this election."
"Even though candidate Carter is not going to be
returned to office," he is attempting to undermine
Anderson's efforts to secure loans to finance a media
advertising campaign, she said. Anderson said that
Carter, in memos issued from the White House, has
been urging banks to be unusually selective in their

The Diag and surrounding areas have
been blanketed in darkness recently af-
ter construction workers on State Street
accidentally cut through cables that
control the lighting, a Detroit Edison
spokesman said yesterday.
"Cables have been cut and are ex-
posed in some places" along State
Street because of the renovation, said
James Connelly, director of customer
and marketing services at Detroit
Edison.
He explained that three circuits on
State Street service the unlit area and
all have been dug up.
THE BLACKOUT area extends from
Thayer Street to the Diag, including
Rackham Auditorium, the Modern
Languages Building, and surrounding
sidewalks.
The problem should be improving,
Connelly said, "but I can't make a
prediction" on when service will be
restored. He said that as soon as one
break in the underground cable is fixed,
another one breaks.
Walter Stevens, director of campus
security, said he only became aware of
the problem late yesterday afternoon.
Detroit Edison told him the problem
should have been corrected yesterday,
he added.
"We will be working with Detroit
Edison very closely to try to get the
problem solved," Stevens stated.
HE ALSO SAID Campus Se urity will

increase its patrols in that area. "We
will alert our patrols and have them
hang in that area as much as they can,"
Stevens explained.
Ann Arbor Police Commanding Of-
ficer Lt. Marvin Konkle stated that the
police are also increasing patrols in the
dark area. "I just instructed one of my
men to go out and check the area," he
added.
Frank Piehl, a City Hall construction
engineer, blamed the city for the
problem. He said the city was trying to
save money on the construction project.
Leaving the old lights in, Piehl said, is
"a serious problem. . . they are poorly
spaced."
THE CABLES ARE old and brittle,
Piehl further explained, and they are
only two to four inches below the sur-
face of the sidewalk. Detroit Edison
should replace them "now, not after the
sidewalks have been laid and must be
torn up again," he said.
"Detroit Edison gets very good
cooperation from City Hall, but State
Street is a very difficult project," Con
nelly said.
Piehl added that "adverse con-
ditions" have caused construction
problems. For example, he said, the
construction area is congested, limited
work space is available, pedestrians
and heavy traffic cause problems, and
crewshave no records of what is un-
derneath the surface.

decisions to make loans to political candidates.,
She said that the memos were "harassing . .
threatening," the banks, in an effort to put a financial
squeeze on the Anderson campaign.
The 49-year-old Anderson also disputed recent poll
results which cast doubt on her husband's chances in
the election, now less than a month away. She said
that a recent New York Times poll, which shows the
independent candidate's current political support at
about 10 percent.oLthevoting population,.represents....
too narrow a cross-section of the public. "I will go out
on a limb and predict ... that (future) national polls"
will reflect a growing popularity for Anderson, she
said.
FURTHERMORE, HER husband is the only major
presidential candidate with a clear political ideology,
Anderson said. "It will be 'politics as usual"' if Car-
ter or Reagan is elected, she said.
' Anderson characterized her husband as the only
candidate with "the courage to make decisions based

on whether they're good for the country," as
distiguished from basing them on individual political
interests.
"He (Anderson) is worrying about the country, not
the loss of votes," she said.
"This country has been broken down into special
interest groups," Anderson said, adding that her
husband's political goal is "to get rid of the special in-
terest groups" and return to a more unified America.
"We have got to unite this country as a whole, and
John can do that," she said.
RESPONDING TO recent allegations that her
husband has flip-flopped politcally since his earlier,
more conservative days as a Congressman and now
espouses a traditionally liberal ideology, she said
that Anderson has always "voted on his conscience."
"My husband's philosophies on fiscal matters have
not changed since the first day he went to Congress,"

Primed and ready for a good fight,
more than 1,300 people gathered on the
main floor of Hill Auditorium last night
to witness a confrontation of right and
left.
The soldiers in the two-hour verbal
duel: Columnist James Kilpatrick-
stately in manner, grandiloquent in
speech, and thoroughly conservative in
his politics; and fellow journalist Shana
Alexander-brusque and unyielding, a
lifelong mouthpiece of liberals,
feminists, and the silent majority.

Frye sees Tiscb
as harmful

By MAURA CARRY
University Vice-President for
Academic Affairs Billy Frye said
yesterday that program cutbacks and
hiring freezes-which the University
might make if it doesn't receive in-
creased state aid-will seem mild com-
pared to cuts necessary if the Tisch tax-
cut amendment is passed in November.
With the passage of Proposal D-the
Tisch proposal-state appropriations to
the University, Michigan. State, and
Wayne State universities would likely
be slashed in half. Appropriations to all
other Michigan universities and
colleges would be completely
eliminated, many experts say.
STATE SCHOLARSHIPS and tuition
grant programs would also be
eliminated under the proposed Tisch
plan. These programs account for ap-
proximately $37 million in financial aid
this year to college students.
Frye said that the Tisch amendment
would have "a massive effect on all of
higher education" because it could lead
to the elimination of certain faculty
positions and force the University to put
a hiring freeze on all vacant positions.
Even if Proposal D does not pass, the
University is going to have to cut back

in all departments, Frye said. He also
said that some sort of incentive should
be given to various departments for
making the cuts, which should be
specified by the administration.
FRYE ALSO SAID recently that in-
creasingly lean budgets might cause
layoffs among non-instructional staff at
the University.
The Daily yesterday reported that
Frye indicated faculty layoffs could be
forthcoming if the state fails to in-
crease the University's budget
allocations, but he actually predicted
layoffs only among non-faculty em-
ployees. Frye made his earlier remarks
at a Monday meeting of the LSA
faculty.
The problem with trying to cut back
on faculty, Frye pointed out, is that
right now there are many tenured
professors who will not be ready to
retire for another five to ten years. Af-
ter that, the University will need to hire
more faculty, but will not have the
resources to do so, he said.
But since faculty turnover will in-
crease once tenured professors start
retiring, vacancies will open up. The
University will not have to fill all these
openings, and therefore, will save
money.

Tow-away zone
WHAT HAPPENS when a University parking
enforcement officer asks you to move your
car? You hit him on the head with a quart
can of glue. At least that's what one irritated
driver did yesterday, police said. Apparently, a driver
parked his car incorrectly and refused to move following a
request from a parking officer, who proceeded to write the
driver a ticket. The outraged driver got out of his car and
hit the officer on the head with a can of glue. The officer

plaint filed by the state. Brothels have been a part of Dead--
wood's colorful history since the goldrush era and operated
in the town's tourist area, in defiance of a state law.
Patrons of the Old Style No. 10, a bar named after the
saloon where Wild Bill Hickok was shot in 1876, bemoaned
the closing of the brothels, believing the historic institutions
added to the town's wild west flavor. "I think they should be
open," one hotel worker said. "They weren't doing anybody
any harm, not in no way, shape, or manner." But others
failed to see the contributions the brothels made to their up-
standing town, and felt a sense of victory when the old doors
were barred. One woman who collected 350 signatures for a
netition to close the houses said, "We care enough about

School-for fund and profit
Whoever said school wasn't profitable? Not students in 20-
high schools in East Lansing, who will be "playing the stock
market" in a computerized learning game-for cash prizes.
The Stock Market Game is designed to teach students how
securities markets work, by allowing them to manage an
imaginary financial portfolio. In the game, which is funded

$308,000 house and two boats, after entering contests for 20
years. Given a choice between the island and $100,000 is
cash as the first prize in a tobacco-company's sweepstakes,
Rawlings opted for the island. Since she's spent, so much
time patching up her two-story, 100-year-old farmhouse, the
choice was easy. Her husband, on the other hand, has not
been so anxious about finding a new huse, nor is he eager
to move. "I guess we'll go down and give it a trial," said
Raymond Rawlings. He added that he would have to find
something to do because he's worked all his life and can't
imagine just going fishing everyday. But winning is not new
