'U' study
'criticizes

(Continued from Page 1)1
Miller said. This isn't always a fair
criticism, he added.
NOT UNTIL Former President
Gerald Ford slipped in response to a
foreign policy question did the media
address debate issues, Miller said. But
even then the emphasis was still on
Ford's error rather than the substance
of what he said.
"Who came across how was the em-
phasis (in media coverage of the
debates)," Miller said. "The can-
didates, on the other hand, really did
focus on issues."I
But campaigns have always been

reported in that way, Miller said.
Miller's paper on the role of liberal
and conservative ideology in the 1980
election will be released later this week
in Economic Outlook U.S.A.
His analysis of data from the
American National Election Studies-a
comprehensive voter survey also done
by CPS-says that ideology is becoming
a more important influence in elec-
tions.
WHETHER A person perceived him-
self or herself as a liberal or conser-
vative had more impact on the voter's
choice in the supposedly issueless elec-
tion of 1976 than it did in 1964 when

Republican Barry Goldwater and
Democrat Lyndon Johnson offered the
country a clear choice between left and
right, survey data shows.
Election participation has declined
among citizens who tend not to think of
themselves in a left-right dimension,
Miller says in his paper. That's part of
the reason that ideology is becoming
more important.
In his interpretation of Spring 1980
ISR survey data, Miller also says that
for the first time since CPS began
collecting data in 1952, there has been a
significant shift to the right in the
public.

BAGDAD-Iran claimed for the first time yesterday that attacking

had recaptured key positions in the embattled port city of Khorramshahr.
Iraq, however, continued to assert that it was in control of Khorram.
shahr and said the capture of the vital oil refining center of Abadan im-
minent.
Independent sources said that Iranian and Iraqi forces continued td:
clash in and around Abadan yesterday with each side claiming heavy
casualties and damages.
In a communique broadcast by Tehran radio yesterday, Iran said "par-
tisan groups inflicted heavy losses on the enemy" in an overnight "battle in-
side Iraqi territory." But the report gave no further details and did not fur-
ther identify the partisan groups.
Volunteers search fails to
find missing Atlanta children
ATLANTA-Thousands of volunteers, wearing yellow' armbands and
toting walking sticks and brush-cutting tools, trudged through an outlying
Atlanta neighborhood yesterday fruitlessly searching for the bodies of four
black children believed to have been murdered.
The volunteers, joining national guardsmen in the search party, fanned
out over an area of about 8 square miles on foot and horseback looking for
clues that might lead to the discovery of the bodies but found only tattered
shreds of clothing, some stolen property and a few animal graves in the
outlying wooded area.w
Meanwhile, Georgia Governor George Busbee ordered state troopers to
help patrol Atlanta's troubled black neighborhoods so Atlanta police could
intensify their investigation into the unsolved murders of 18 black children in
that city.
met announces settlement
NEW YORK-The Metropolitan Opera Co. and its locked-out musicians
reached a tentative settlement to their month-long dispute yesterday,
spreading hope the stage would once again brighten at the nation's premier
operas house.
The tentative settlement was announced by top federal mediator Wayne
Horvitz shortly before dawn yesterday but details of the pact were withheld
pending ratification.
Both federal and Met officials would not say, however, whether plans
were being made to reschedule the 1980-81 season that was cancelled last
month after it was apparent the dispute would not be settled quickly.

LANSING (UPI)-Pre-election
financing reports show worried gover-
nment workers and uionists are
digging deep to help the effort to defeat
the Tisch tax cut amendment.
A study of figures on file Friday with
the state showed the amounts of money
available to opponents of Proposal D
were substantially larger than funds
garnered by backers of the measure.
FRIDAY WAS THE deadline for
filing pre-election financing reports un-
der Michigan campaign law. Papers
document contributions and expen-
ditures through October 19.
An anti-Tisch organization called
Citizens to Save Our State, reported
collecting $184,018 through Oct. 19.
Government workers contributed
heavily, with major amounts coming
from the Michigan Education
Association, Michigan Federation of
Teachers, Michigan State Employees
Association, and the biggest of all-
$40,000-from the American Federation
of State, County, and Municipal Em-
ployees. The Ford Motor Co. Ballot
Committee gave $20,000.
TISCH, WHO SERVES as drain
commissioner of Shiawassee County,
has raised $79,031 through his Tisch
Coalition for Property Tax Cut in
Michigan, and spent $66,384.17, accor-
ding to his report. Most of the money
came in small contributions from in-
dividuals.
In addition, the Michigan Tisch Tax
Cut Coalition has chipped in about
$1,200 in in-kind support from a realtor,

Also lopsided was funding of the fight

fighting the measure.

making some critical decisions now."
Tisch said his official announcement
would come by "church time" today or
by 8 am. tomorrow.,
The Tisch plan, if approved by voters
on November 4, would slash property
taxes in half and require the state to
make up the lost revenues to local
governments. State officials have
predicted that such a reimbursement
would come at a heavy cost to state
services. The University ad-
ministration has predicted that tuition
would have to double or triple to begin
to replace state revenues that would be
lost under the Tisch plan.
TISCH, HOWEVER, has repeatedly
criticized his opponents.
"Michigan has never before seen
such a blatantly misleading propogan-
da campaign as the one Gov. Milliken is
currently orchestrating," Tisch was
quoted in the release as saying.
Tisch said Shapiro is probably among
those presidents against whom he will
take action.
"I was considering using U of M's
President Shapiro as number one,"
Tisch said. "He's one of the biggest
liars of the bunch. He spent a lot of the
taxpayers money."
EARLIER THIS WEEK Shapiro sent a
newsletter to members of the Univer-
sity community saying the Tisch tax
cut could be "devastating" to the
University.
Shapiro was unavailable for com-
ment last night, but both Vice President
for Academic Affairs Billy Frye and
University General Counsel Roderick
Daane std the funds from the newslet-
ter did not come from tuition or state-
appropriated monies.
Tisch also cited Wayne State Univer-
sity President Thomas Bonner and
Michigan ,State University President
Cecil Mackey as two others against whom
he may take legal action.
Tisch said he had been in close con-
tact with Richard Headlee, another tax
cut crusader, and had discussed with
him the possibility of a lawsuit.
But Headlee, reached last night at his
home, said Tisch only called to inform
him that "they were going to talk with
some attorneys so they (Milliken and
the university presidents) would cease
and desist from breaking the law."

denounces Soviet occupation
BELGRADE, Yugoslavia-Afghanistan's chief delegate to a United
Nations conference stunned fellow delegates here yesterday when he rose
unexpectedly and denounced the Soviet Union's intervention in his country.
The delegate, Akhtar Mohammed Paktiawal, condemned the Soviet
occupation of Afghanistan- during a UNESCO conference and then flew to
West Germany and asked for asylum.
"Afghanistan is fighting for its freedom," Paktiawal told the delegates.
"The Afghan people will fight forever ... I will fight for the rest of my life."
Paktiawal then picked up his briefcase and left the conference to the
cheers and applause of the other delegates.
Mexican quake kills 65;
leaves thousands homeless
HUAJUAAN DE LEON, Mexico-Thousands of dazed and homeless
residents wandered in the streets here yesterday, looking for food, water or
relatives amid the rubble of buildings toppled by a massive earthquake.
The earthquake, which killed at least 65 people, destroyed about 88 per-
cent of the buildings in this town 150 miles southeast of Mexico City. Many
residents spent the night in the streets as rescue workers, brought in by
helicopters, struggled around the clock to free hundreds of people trapped in
the rubble and debris from the sudden quake.
The earthquake, centered in the Pacific Ocean near here and measuring
6.7 on the Richter scale, triggered dozens of landslides across the southern
state of Oaxaca, blocking all major roads and toppling telephone and utility
poles. The quake was also felt as far away as Mexico City where tall
buildings reportedly swayed like trees.
Court awards damages to
late sportscaster's estate
DETROIT-A federal court has awarded $235,000 to the estate of a-
former radio sportscaster who committed suicide two years after he was
fired and replaced by a black announcer. Storer Broadcasting Co., which
owns the Detroit radio station where the announcer was fired, is expected to
appeal the court's decision.
It was argued that the sportscaster, Joseph "Red' Jamison, committed
suicide as a result of his replacement at his Detroit job by a black announ-
cer. The six-member, all-white jury awarded the $235,000 to Jamison's
estate for his "wrongful" death because his suicide was caused by mental
illness resulting from his racially-motivated discharge.
