Anderson said. On social issues, her
husband had simply wisely realigned
his policies with the changing face of
current affairs, she added.
It is Reagan's inability to adapt
similarly to a changing world that is
one of his chief shortcomings, accor-
ding to Anderson.

"I wish he (Reagan) would notice
what's going on in the world around
him," she said. The fact that Reagan is
out of touch with political, social and
economic reality is most clearly
demonstrated in his proposal to eturn a
to a .gold-based economy, Anderson
said.

KEKE ANDERSON, in Ann Arbor yesterday stumping for her husband, in-
dependent presidential candidate John Anderson, said that Carter's chances
of re-election are virtually nil and that Reagan is the only formidable op-
ponent for her husband.

made their points and counterpoints on topics rang-
ing from geopolitical relations and nuclear warfare
to abortion and gun control.
GIVEN THE polarized ideologies of the two guests,
last night% debate was light-hearted in tone-a
playful, at times comical, atmosphere prevailed
through most of the evening.
As the spectators heard the arguments, varying
degrees of applause and/or hissing could be heard.
Neither Alexander nor Kilpatrick received a lan-
dslide of support-the crowd was decidedly split.
And there were no surprises on the views espoused
by either opponent-Kilpatrick defended nuclear
energy, Alexander assailed it. Kilpatrick attack gun
control, Alexander called it 'a necessity. Kilpatrick
argued against a federal battered wives act and the
Equal Rights Amendment, Alexander emotionally
endorsed both. Kilpatrick urged the West to mobilize
in the Persian Gulf, Alexander condemned such "in-

trusion."
The central theme, as generally seen in a left-right
debate, was the roles and limitations of the federal
government. Kilpatrick consistently criticized "ex-
cessive" legislation. Alexandpr defended a strong
national government in this cbuntry. "We have big
government," she said gruffly, "because we have a
big country with big problems."
She dismissed Kilpatrick's address on this issue as,
"ham and bombast." At this, the auditorium swelled
with laughter, and Kilpatrick smiled-such jabs have
been a constant element of the couple's confron-
tations for years.
THROUGHOUT THE debate, which included a
question and answer period with the audience,
Kilpatrick appeared very much at ease, in contrast to
Alexander's excitable, defensive style.

As Alexander read most of her comments from
prepared notes, Kilptrick scribbled mary thoughts on
a legal pad and delivered the bulk of his address
spontaneously.
When questioned about the presidential election,
both speakers emphasized the weaknesses of the
other's preference, and little time was spent
promoting either candidate.
"When I cast my vote," Alexander replied to an
inquirer, "it will be an anti-vote-anti-Reagan." The
audience cheered.
"I didn't plan to get so partisan," Kilpatrick
responded, "but my vote will also be of that
nature-it will be an anti-Carter vote." More laughs,
applause.
Soon, the guests had left the stage, departing to a
post-duel reception at East Quad.

"At least he can catch a ball," Ford
said of the player with a wide grin.
After talking to the players, the for-
mer president left the field 20 minutes
behind schedule and moved on to
Regents' Plaza to talk to faculty and
students in a campaign stop for Rep.
Carl Pursell (R-Ann Arbor).
Ford told the gathering that his
numerous college campus visits across
the nation have impressed upon him
that "students as well as faculty are in-
terested in performance and integrity"
in a candidate.
HE THEN proceeded to attack
President Carter's record on inflation,
unemployment and defense spen-

ding-comparing current figures with
those from 1976 when Ford left office.
"Carter's performance has been
acatastrophe and a disaster, Ford said.
"If you are going to bring up in-
flation-who created it? Jimmy Car-
ter! You can't trust him any more in
1980 than you trusted him in 1976."
Ford stressed the importance of the
college students' vote in November. He
said he was "very disappointed" with
the small number of young voters in
1976, and urged Ann Arbor voters to
cast their ballots regardless of how they
feel about the choice of candidates.
"I urge you in 1980 to do what my
generation couldn't do in 1932 when I
was 19," Ford said. "We couldn't

vote-you can. You have an obligation
to do it," the former University student
said.
ALL CROWD response to Ford was
not favorable. ERA supporters and
Carter fans were intent on voicing their
disapproval of Ronald Reagan.
When Ford mentioned the topic of
national security, he stressed apparent
military unpreparedness under the
Carter administration. As Ford talked
about U.S. military ships, a student
cried out, "We don't want to go to war."
The crowd roared its approval.
Ford immediately answered:
"Whatever we have ought to pe ready
to defend the United States of
America." The crowd once again
voiced strong support.
STUDENT RESPONSE to the rally
was mixed. Senior Kevin Cox, who said
he's basically a Republican, but not a
"Reagan person," summed up Ford's
speech as an "obvious show of party
unity." Cox's companion, Bill Donnelly,

said, "I didn't think he sounded very
well prepared."'.
LSA junior Dana Vikser said she was
disappointed in the rally. "I thought
that Pursell was going to speak."
While speaking to the football players
earlier in the day, Ford was asked if he
felt awkward supporting, Reagan when
the GOP candidate lent him no support
in 1976.
"I FEEL VERY strongly about a
change in the White House ... I always
look to the future and forget the past,"
Ford said.
At the rally, the former president ex-
plained that he has a high regard for
John Anderson, but said the indepen-
dent candidate couldn't get the 276 elec-
toral votes necessary to become
president.k
"When I see the kind of people
Reagan has surrounded himself with, I
can honestly say tKyou that we (he and
his wife, Betty) in good conscience are
supporting Ronald Reagan."
