Anderson, Reagan ahead
in mock student elections

From United Press International
Mock elections and informal polls in
colleges, high schools and junior highs
show many of the nation's youth
leaning toward John Anderson and
Ronald Reagan.
In the Northeast, Anderson tends to
come out tops in college polls, with
,President Carter second and Reagan
third. In the South, a college trend puts
Reagan in the number one berth.
REAGAN ALSO wins high school and
junior high school polls said to include a
good sampling of students nationwide.
Typical of college results was a Yale
Daily News report that 36 percent of the
students responding to a survey prefer
Anderson, 27 percent Carter, and 14
percent Reagan.
'But when asked, "Who would you
vote for?" 43 percent of the Yalies
leaned to Carter, 23 percent to Ander-

son, and 17 percent Reagan.
JOE WRIGHT, editor of "The Print,"
at Northeastern University in Boston,
said letters on the election are running
heavily against Reagan.
"The impresseion seems to be that
Reagan will get us into war," he said.
But in the opinion of high school
students in a nationwide mock election,
Reagan will win the election over Car-
ter Tuesday by 276 electoral votes to
262.
DOWN IN the junior highs, an elec--
tion involving about 1,000 classrooms
nationwide gave Reagan 17,958 votes;
Carter, 11,934; Anderson, 6,597. "Junior
Scholastic," a school magazine with a
circulation of 2.5 million, ran the elec-
tion between Oct.25 and.31.
The opinion of high school students
was gathered tinder guidance of the
Parent Participation TV Workshop

funded by a grant from NBC. Students,
parents, and teachers in 31 states and
the District of Columbia met in groups
Thursday, arriving at their decisions
through research and discussion.
In the opinion of the groups:
" Carter will win the key and close
states of New York, Illinois, Mississip-
pi, Ohio, and Pennsylvania, and;
* Reagan will take California, Texas,
Michigan, and New Jersey.
The largest college sampling was
reported in "The Daily Prin-
cetonian"-student paper at Princeton
University in Princeton, N.J. The paper
asked 2,500 students at Cornell, Har-
vard, Brown, the University of Pen-
nsylvania, and Princeton how they
would vote. Anderson got 41 percent,
Carter 29 percent, and Reagan 15 per-
cent.

CONqRESSMAN
,CARL PURSELL
MAKING A REAL DIFFERENCE
FOR Uof M
* After only two years as our Congressman, Carl's legislative skill and bipartisan approach
results in his appointment to the House Appropriations Committee-one of the most influen-.
tial positions in Congress.
* Congressman Pursell also won a seat on the key Appropriations Subcommittee which sets
budgets for Education, Health, and Human Services, and oversees most of the federal grants
for colleges and universities. Last year, while Carl was on the subcommittee, $100 million
in federal grants went to the University of Michigan.
" With more college students in his District than any other Congressman, Carl has become a
leading voice for student interests in Washington. As a Congressman, Carl has:
-Sponsored an amendment that saved the National Direct Student Loan program from
termination.
-Increased by 53% funds for Cooperative Education and Vocational Education, programs
aimed at assuring jobs for students after graduation.
-Led the fight to stop the Adminstration from crippling nursing and other health man-
power education and research.
-Supported increased funding for Law School Clinical Experience to encourage students
to develop legal skills and gain practical experience while still in school.
-Voted for tuition tax credits for university students and their parents.
" Carl's has been a consistent voice in support of equal rights for women: Carl is one of the
few elected officials to vote for both state ERA ratification (as a Michigan State Senator) and
for the national ratification extension, as our Congressman.
Carl has also:
-Developed a comprehensive "Women's Bill of Rights," to form a blueprint for legisla-
tiondesigned to eliminate discrimination against women in many areas of our laws.
-Actively supported the Domestic Violence Act, which will help prevent spouse abuse
and provide aid to victims of domestic violence.
-Co-sponsored and helped enact the Pregnancy Disability Act which eliminated sex
discrimination on the basis of pregnancy.
* Carl has been a supporter of a strong lean defense-which would include an effective stra-
tegic force, rapid mobilization plans, and a buildup of the Navy and the Reserves-but he
has consistently voted against exotic and obsolete weapons systems, such as the MX missile,
the B-1 Bomber and the Neutron bomb. Carl also strongly opposed and voted against the
draft registration program for 19 and 20 year olds.
