Campus Conuunist Party battles prejudice
By PAM KRAMER
Campus supporters of the Communist Party's
Gus Hall/Angela Davis presidential ticket admit
sat either Jimmy Carter or Ronald Reagan will
be the next resident of the White House.
"Gus and Angela won't get elected, that's ob-
vious," said Danny Spector, national
organization director of the Detroit branch of the
Young Workers Liberation League. "But a vote
for them isn't wasted. We can't just pick out the
winner in this race, or there will be no winners
anong the people."
-,The Hall/Davis campaign is geared toward
making voters aware of their alternatives in the
ovember election, according to campus volun-
teers. Students have beer} receptive to
Fall/Davis literature, they said4 but they also
noted many people hesitate to accept leaflets
because the word "communist" appears on
Members urge voters to review options
"THAT'S SOMETHING we have to over-
come," John Sokolow, a student working on the
campaign said. "The height of anti-communism
in this country is the highest in the world. In
other places, it's a respected part of the political
Votes for Hall and Davis will provide a
springboard for an anti-monopoly, labor-based
party that will soon be able to initiate fundamen-
tal changes in American society, Spector said.
"We have to begin forming a new party, one
that will unite people, right now," Sokolow ex-
plained. "It takes time, it's a process, but it has
to be started.
"GUS AND ANGELA are more in tune with
the people than any of the other candidates," he
Hall, general secretary of the Communist Par-
ty in the United States since 1959, is conducting
his third campaign as the party's presidential
candidate. First-time vice-presidential can-
didate Angela Davis is co-chairwoman of the
National Alliance Against Racial and Political
Oppression, an organization that works to free
so-called U.S. political prisoners.
The Hall/Davis campaign, according to Spec-
tor, is stressing the importance of this election
for the nation's youth. "At a time when the
military budget is bigger than ever," he said,
"the ruling class is trying to do away with public
education because there isn't enough money for
"THE RESPONSE on campus is very, very
positive," Sokolow said. "Last spring, for in-
stance, when Gus and Angela were trying to get
on the ballot in Michigan, 5,000 signatures were
collected on (the University) campus alone."
He added that this does not mean there are
5,000 Hall and Davis supporters, but rather that
many people favor more open ballot access for
Tim Feeman, another student working for the
Hall/Davis campaign, said the issues of instruc-
tional staff cutbacks and tuition increases were
being addressed by the Communist Party.
OTHER STUDENTS involved in the
Hall/Davis campaign said the possible closing of
the Women's Studies program and pressures on
the Residential College are examples of
progressive programs started at the University
during the late 60s and early 70s that are being
Sokolow said a strong show of support for Hall
and Davis by University students would have a
tremendous effect on the University.
"If the Regents saw that 100-200 students here
were fed up enough with things that they voted
for Gus and Angela, they would have to start to
comply with the goals the University set up on
things like affirmative action," Sokolow said.
"There's such a level of demoralization,
despair, a feeling that -you can't do anything
about it," Spector said. "But you can. It doesn't
make sense for young people to vote for can-
didates supporting draft registration or an arms
race at the expei se of jobs programs and
education," he said.

Mid-air crash kills three
Officials sift through the debris of a single-engine plane that came down in
the backyard of a subdivision home after colliding in mid-air with another
plane over Waterford yesterday. Both pilots and a passenger on one of
the planes were killed in the crash. A Waterford Township police spokes-
person said it was "miraculous" no one on the ground was hurt because one
of the planes missed the home above by just a few feet. Wreckage was
widely scattered and debris damaged a few homes, but police said the dam-
age was not serious.

Experts on everything from leaky
faucets to eviction laws will be in Ann
Arbon.this weekend for a, regional con-
ference on "Housing for the People."
The event, sponsored by the Public
Interest Research Group in Michigan,
will run from Thursday, Oct. 16 through
Sunday, Oct. 19. In addition to
workshops on housing repairs, tenant
rights, community organizing, and
other housing related topics, the con-
ference will feature addresses by
Georgia state Senator Julian Bond and
Gray Panthers activist Maggie Kuhn.
ACCORDING TO PIRGIM media
coordinator Dawn McMartin, Ann Ar-
bor's housing situation makes it a good
place to hold the conference. "Ann Ar-
bor is an ideal place to have the con-
ference, since it has the second highest
rent rates in the nation," said McMar-
"We think of it as a housing teach-
in," she continued. "We want to teach
residents how to get together and solve
their housing problems."
ALL CONFERENCE workshops are
free and open to the public. Workshop
organizers will come from as far as
New Jersey and California. Local ex-
perts on housing inspection and ad-
ministration will include Ann Arbor
Housing Inspector Bill Yadlouski and
City Planner Fred Bohl.
Conference planners also hope to do
several conference follow-up projects,
including mailings and producing video
and sound recordings of the conference
for distribution to area libraries.
Workshops on selected topics will be
held from 1 p.r. to 7 p.m. Friday and
10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday. Maggie
Kuhn will open the address with her
speech tomorrow night, while Bond will
present the concluding address Sunday

These words express a
truth that time cannot age or

need that makes the unknow-

unheard-of music to our ears.
At Conoco Chemicals we
are more than mindful of this
need. It is an intrinsic part of

to be. For our need to know
