Student sup>orters of Ronald Reagan
say they often feel badgered by people
asking how they, as students, can sup-
port "that man."
"When people ask me that question, I
just ask why they aren't even con-
sidering supporting him,"' said junior
Chris Smith, a volunteeV in the student
group stumping for the GOP presiden-
tial candidate on campus.
"I'm really sick of hearing words like
warmonger.' Reagan is not a war-
monger at all,"Smith said.
"IT'S BARBARIC, I'll admit, to have
to threaten in order to be able to
negotiate for peace," he added. "I hate
it, but that's the way it has to be."
Debbie Gill, Joan Henderson and Ed
Feeley, student coordinators for the
group of University students cam-
paigning for the Reagan/Bush ticket,
said they did not think they would find
much support like Smith's on this cam-
'pus.
But last week almost 100 people

showed up for their first organizational
meeting.
"I think it's sort of a silent majority
on campus," Gill said of Reagan's
followers. "Anderson has the greatest
vocal following here."
"FACE IT, Anderson's got great T-
shirts," Henderson said. "But we want
to make people aware of Reagan and
the Republican philosophy."
Henderson emphasized the impor-
tance of looking to the future in the
November election because of its poten-
tial effect on students. Input and in-
volvement, she said, are stressed at the
group's meetings.
"We take this campaign very
seriously, and I think what we're doing
is important," Henderson said. "But
it's fun, too. The 'Campaign '80' grass

former Bush or Anderson supporters.
But they say they are unified now
behind the Reagan/Bush ticket and the
GOP.
"If people would look at his record
and at what's written down, they'd see
he isn't all that conservative," Smith
said. "Emotionalism is why people get
down on Reagan. I know he sounds,
well, silly a lot of the time he talks, but
his record is the important thing."

Europeans view presidential can-
didates Ronald Reagan and Jimmy
Carter with "alarm, confusion, and
contempt based upon a bedrock of
ignorance," according to a visiting
British Broadcasting Company editor.
BBC editor Leslie Stone was a guest
on a WUOM radio talk show yesterday
along with British Member of
Parliament Ken Woolmer.
Stone described GOP hopeful Reagan
as having a Goldwater image where
"people are afraid he's going to in-
troduce simplistic militaristic
solutions."
Carter, on the other hand, has bred
disillusionment associated with higher
inflation and higher unemployment, he
said.
CARTER, STONE explained, has
cultivated an image of being well-
meaning yet incompetent, calling the
president "a man of exceptional in-
telligence who comes across in con-
tinental Europe as a clown."
Woolmer agreed with Stone's view.
Carter, the Labour Party member said,
is an "extremely intelligent, able man
in the grasp of details," yet one who
vacillates.
A main fear in the United Kingdom,
Woolmer said, is that either Carter or
Reagan may choose to turn towards
protectionism. Reagan, he added,
raises genuine worries on the foreign
defense front.
"WHOEVER GETS elected is going
to be stumbling along," Woolmer said.
Both men ignored Independent can-
didate John Anderson in their analyses
of the presidential race. Stone said An-
derson's campaign is based upon the
fact that he's better than Carter and.not
Reagan, while the campaign itself
"lacks a theme."
Woolmer is spending the week on
campus speaking to political science
classes and other groups. He will speak

on "The World Political Scene: Key
Issues and Future Prospects" at 8 p.m.
tomorrow in the Union Ballroom.
In a DE ly interview, Woolmer cited
underlyi g problems with the
American system which make a suc-
cessful presidency very difficult for
whomever is elected.
THE PRESIDENT and the Congress
often conflict, Woolmer said, creating
problems in pursuing "a coherent ex-
pression of American internal and
foreign policy."
Another conflict-that between the
president and society-results because
it's "not clear who or what the
president is trying to represent, and
what he's trying to achieve," he said.
The frustration and confusion
surroundingAmerican policy often
causes Americans to place blame on
the president, Woolmer explained.
"People want a strong leader and don't
want him to have much power."
Woolmer praised American
democracy and said Americans don't
have enough confidence in the country.
"America is far stronger and far more
vibrant than the people of America
think," he said.
