By KENT REDDING
With elections less than three weeks away, a
Democratic candidate for Lt. Gov. told a group of
nearly 100 students that only cooperation among all
state groups-including business, government, and
labor-will enable Michigan to turn its economy
around.
"If there's one thing we can't afford in this state, it
is to have one group set against another," Griffiths
said, emphasizing that the University has to play a
larger role providing expertise for state businesses.
ALTHOUGH THE state and nation face difficult
times ahead, the 72-year-old running mate of guber-
natorial candidate James Blanchard predicted "ex-
citing challenges ahead," and said "You can't afford
to die now, especially if you're my age."
Griffiths, who represented the 17th Congressional

district in Detroit for 20 years, also denied that Blan-
chard was being controlled by powerful unions in the
state. "If he were really a puppet to the unions, I
wouldn't be standing here," she said.
When one student asked Griffiths about Republican
candidate for governor Richard Headlee's claim that
he would run Michigan like a business, Griffiths
replied, "Which one, International Harvester?"
Government is not a business. It was never meant to
be."
IN SPITE of a recent poll that showed the Blan-
chard ticket to be nearly 20 percentage points ahead
of the Republicans, Griffiths refused to say she was
,optimistic. "I remember Thomas E. Dewey," she
said.
Griffiths also urged students to get out and vote on "
election day.

Tennis star Ashe

I-.

hypes insu
By SHARON SILBAR
Retired athletes don't die, they simply
change professions. Some become
sportscasters, others do beer commer-
cials.
For the past six years, tennis great
Arthur Ashe has acted as a consultant t
the Aetna Life and Casualty Company
and it was as such that he visited Ann
Arbor yesterday.
SPEAKING to about 25 minority
students who attended a meeting at
Mosher-Jordan dormitory, Ashe and
several other representatives from
Aetna discussed employment oppor-
tunities and tried to dispel myths about
the insurance industry.
Ashe, one of the first blacks to play
professional tennis, has visited Ann Ar-
bor several times, and praised the
University's efforts to prepare students
for their futures.
"People are looked after fairly well
here at Michigan, but that wasn't
always the case. The school is big, it
has enough money to hire people to
guide people through their college days
over and above this 'bull-session' with a
professor," Ashe said at the meeting
sponsored by the Office of Career Plan-
ning and Placement..
Traditionally, the predominantly
black schools - such as Howard or
Xavier University - have been very
successful in graduating students into
entry-level management positions, he
said.
ASHE EXPLAINED, however, that
most black schools now need as many
students as possible just to meet their
overheadacosts. As enrollment drops
off due to cutbacks in financial aid and
student loan eligibility, it becomes
increasingly difficult for these schools to
attract quality professors and provide
modern facilities, he added.
Ashe stressed that a student's job
selection process should start during
the first year at college. Ashe said
students should decide what they what
to do and then "go for it." While a
student can change directions at
anytime, having a direction is the first
step in preparing for a job, he said.
Ashe also gave advice to students
,worried about job interviews. In
preparing for an interview, students
should first realize that the recruiter
begins evaluating the applicant as soon
as he or she enters the room, she said.
AETNA representative Dennis Hen-
derson explained that recruiters look
for competence, motivation, integrity,
and a quality he called "interper-
sonal."

diplomas have never been better in the
insurance industry, according to Ashe,
who noted tha other major service in-
dustries are also looking to increase
their number of black employees.
The "golden opportunity" is
available to the student who stands in
the middle of the "hot marriage of ac-
counting and computer sciences," Ashe
said. "The hell with (motivation, in-
tegrity, and personality), if you have
competence in these fields, we'll make
you a nice person," he said.
