REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTIAL candidate Ronald Reagan campaigns yesterday in Flint. Reagan, who made earlier
appearances yesterday in Ohio, charges that President Carter will raise taxes if elected to a second term in office.
Reagan blasts Carter
at Fitcampaign stop,

Ronald Reagan said now is the time to cut-cut taxes,
cut government spending, and cut back the number of gover-
nment regulations on business and industry.
He also took the time to cut down President Carter's
economic policies.
Reagan told the 1,300 people at a campaign rally at
Southwestern High School in Flint last night, "If the
American people rented the fat in government spending they
would have enough fat to make soap for the entire world."
PROMISING TO CUT government spending seven per-
cent over the next five years, the Republican candidate
promised to balance the budget 'by 1983. According to his
plan, government-spending would be decreased two percent

in the first and second year, and one percent in each of the
following years.
Reagan told the crowd in the Flint gymnasium that he
plans to wipe out the "thousands and thousands" of un-
necessary government regulations controlling American
businesses by simultaneously accelerating the deprection
allowance and instituting a 30 percent across-the-board in-
come tax cut over the next 3 years.
"We have the highest percentage of outmoded equipment
than any other nation in the world," Reagan emphasized.
Businesses, he explained, need to be modernized to keep up
with foreign industries.

done our actions but feel the facts
around the incident have been grossly
It said "the freshmen hockey players
were brought to a house off campus and
given alcohol. No physical force was
used but peer pressure was evident.
The intent of the drinking was not to
force the freshmen to become sick."
ONE FRESHMAN player involved,

once more to vomit and was brought
back, inside and had warm towels
placed over him. Players said he was

outside for a total of 45 minutes, but was
not, according to newspaper accounts,
left outside to be sick or left lying on the
ground for an hour and a half.
The letter said that after it was ap-
parent that he had become sick, he was
placed into "the back of a fully-heated
Plymouth Duster hatchback." He was
taken straight to Markley Dormitory, a,
seven-minute ride, and was not driven
around campus for more than an hour.
When the three players and the
freshman arrived at the dorm, the
release said, the player was taken into
the lobby by the players where they
were met by some twenty members of
Markley-Reeves hall. It said the
players were told to leave and also said
the player was not "dumped on the hall
doorsteps, incoherent and unable to
walk." The player was coherent and
able to walk to his room on his own.
Markley residents. confirmed this
The statement said "the players at-
tempted to check on the freshman, but
were turned back -by Markley residen-
ts. Phone calls later in the evening to
check on him were not answered.

Jimmy Carter refused to debate John
Anderson. Ronald Reagan delivered a
short recitation on the presidential
issue of sulfur dioxide. The League of
Women Voters wasn't there.
Anderson, Carter, and Reagan had it
out in mind, though not in body, in the
Bursley Cafeteria last night. Stewart
DMhandell, representing Carter, refused
to compare any of Carter's policies with
Anderson's proposals, saying that they
were too similar to bother explaining.
Dick Cheetham, representing the
Illinois congressman, responded that
he wasn't aware that their positions
were all that similar. And Ronald
Reagan's spokesman, Ed Feeley,
stated assertively, while answering a '
vaguely related question, that his can-
didate's position on sulfur dioxide had
nothing to do with his ability to run the

Klein, 68, became the eighth
American among 11 winners this year.
The Royal Swedish Academy of Scien-
ces, which selects the winner in
economics, said Klein has been the
leading researcher in the field of

analysis of business fluctuation for 30
Klein developed the econometric
models while at the University from
1949-54. He also served as lecturer,
assistant professor of economics, and
researcher for the Survey Research
Center of ISR during those years.
During his stay at the University,
Klein conducted studies on household
economic behavior and developed the
first statistical model of the U.S.
economy. He also started the Research
Seminar in Quantitative Economics.
Saul Hymans, co-director of the
seminar and professor of statistics and
economics, said of Klein: "It was his
foresight andability which made it (the
model scheme) practical to forecast
and analyze the U.S. economy." He
referred to Klein as the "father of the
econometric industry."
Hyman, who has known Klein for
more than 16 years, described him as a

Writing on the wall
LTERNATIVE education programs and open
classrooms have been around for a while, but
Dr. Alan Grogono has come up with a truly
novel and innovative educational idea. Grogono,
an associate professor of anesthesiology at the
State University of New York Medical Center in Syracuse,
conducted a study in the spring involving 280 dormitory
students. He taped posters listing 25 key facts about

"One day I opened a can of beer and it sprayed all over
me," said Dr. Cedric Walker. "I thought, there's a lot of
energy in there." That started Walker thinking about ways
to harness that energy. Walker, assistant professor of
biomedical engineering at Tulane University, turned the
problem over to 32 of his senior students. He gave his
students an assignment to design, build, and test a car that
uses a can of beer to get from Point A to Point B, using any
part of the product and any scientific principle. The only
limitation was that the project could costrno more than $60.

Laughing matter
The Army isn't laughing about a comic book that pokes
fun at its purchasing methods, and pictures Pentagon of-
ficials as being two-faced, with Pinocchio noses, or bearing
a strong resemblance to the Three Stooges. The 44-page
comic book, "You're not Supposed to Get Mugged by Your
Own Army," was created by Loeb Julie, an inventor and
businessman who has been unsuccessfully trying for six
years to sell the Army electronic equipment manufactured
by his small Manhattan company. The booklet gives an
illustrated account of Julie's efforts-beginning with his

comic-book approach is "a terribly effective way of
arguing his claim." Julie said the Soviet government of-
fered to buy his equipment, but he said he refused the order
out of patriotism. O

John Lennon and his son Sean received a 1,000-foot-tall
birthday greeting October 9 from Yoko Ono, Lennon's wife.
High over Central Park, the clouds spelled out "Happy Bir-
thday John and Sean. Love, Yoko. . ." Ten times, in fact.
Ono arranged to have Mort Arken, owner of the Queens-
based Skytypers East, to deliver the skywritten message
between 3:30 and 3: 45 pm. over the park near The Dakota.
