said, adding, "The problem of bringing
peopledto the table is no frill, itn s a
necessity if we are to survive."
Yankelovich said the public is also
wary of putting too much faith in the
decisions made by government.
"Peope won't accept difficult solutions
until they're sure the painless solutions
have been exhausted," he said. "Policy
makers assume once the public con-
sciousness has been raised, the
problem is solved, but at that point
we're only halfway there. With raised
consciousness we only raise the public's
anxiety without letting them form con-
ception of what to do about the
problems," Yankelovich said.
YANKELOVICH said the important
task is to bring the public to the

Yesterday's conference was tran-

participants of previous association
forums. The group had planned to an-
swer questins over the telephone, but
because the system was not hooked up
until late in the day, only a handfull of
calls were taken.
Presidents Ford and Carter will be
addressing students today at 10 a.m. in
the Rackham Assembly Hall, and the
conference will conclude with panel
discussions at the Ford Library.

Carter shared examples of how he
has tried to "bridge the gap" between
people and policy makers.
"On the campaign trail, I never
stayed in a hotel or motel. We always
found a private home. It saved us a lot
of money," he said.
It also brought "closer personal
ties," which Carter said were crucial to
his communication with the public.
HE ALSO said his bi-weekly press
conferences and call-in radio shows
were instrumental in bringing the
people closer to government.
Public support for the incumbent of-
ficial is essential, Carter said. "It helps
to have foreign leaders know that the
president speaks the voice of the
American people," he said.
Carter, who excited jealousy in Ford
for having run 10 miles yesterday mor-
ning, outlined his plans for the future.
For the next year he will be studying
the middle east. This will include a visit
to the region in April.

arms reductions will occupyhis next 12

process of establishing his Presidential

Increase in sterility, study says
WASHINGTON - More than 3 million married American women say they
want to have babies but are physically unable to, a government study repor-
ted yesterday. i
The study by the National Center for Health Statistics, citing a separat-
fertility survey, also documents a marked increase in younger couples wh&
are medically unable to have chidren. It speculates the rise may be due to
increasing cases of sterility-causing diseases.
The authors say "Reproductive Impairments Among Married Couples:,.

ject. It is based on a 1976 survey of married women of childbearing age.
Bush finds Allied European
leaders united on NATO
LONDON - Vice President George Bush, nearing the end of a seven-
nation European tour, said yesterday he was "optimistic" about his talks
with Allied leaders and found them "united on behalf of the NATO alliance."
Bush said in the last major speech of his 12-day trip that "rumors of the
death of our alliance have been greatly exaggerated."
The vice president traveled to West Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium,
Switzerland, Italy, and France before coming to Britain. He said he came to
"consult" the allies, counter strong European anti-nuclear sentiment, and
criticize "one-sided" arms reductions proposals from the Soviet Union.
In speech after speech, Bush asserted the "moral" value of President
Reagan's "zero-option" proposal.

lab will close Oct. 1 unless Congress

to obstruct EPA investigation
WASHINGTON - The head of the Environmental Protection Agency
denied yesterday she tried to obstruct a congressional investigation of her
agency, saying she imposed conditions on House investigators for the
"protection of our employees' rights."
Anne Gorsuch, already fighting a contempt of Congress charge and em-
broiled in controversy over her firing of a top official, spoke at a news con-
ference called after the chairman of a House subcommittee charged she was
.impeding his probe of EPA's $1.6 billion "Superfund" program.
The criticism arose after Gorsuch insisted that about 25 EPA employees
would testify before the subcommittee ony if an EPA lawyer was present.
She also demanded that Republican congressmen be represented at any in-
terview and that the EPA receive a full transcript.
"The conditions are, from my point of view, protection of our employees'
rights," she told a news conference. "If they wish to waive those rights,
that's their right. 'Bt it's my job to protect the rights of those employees un
til they wish to waive them."

Reagan: Lower minimun wage
WASHINGTON - President Reagan said yesterday minimum wage
requirements never should have covered unskilled teenagers, and "the right
thing" to do now would be to exempt them so they have a better chance of
"The line on the chart for unemployment for teenagers goes right along
increasing with the increase in a minimum wage," Reagan told a group bf
regional editors and'broadcasters.
Government demands on employers, such as a higher minimum wage and
Social Security payments, have made it "impossible" for unskilled young
people entering the jobmarket to get a starting position, Reagan said.
The unemployment rate in January for teenagers was 22.7 percent, 4571
percent for blacks. The minimum wage is now $3.35 an hour. The ad-
ministration has proposed a $2.50 minimum wage for teenagers doing sum-
