IN BRIEF

By NEIL CHASE
What do political science majors do
after college? They go to law school,
right?
Wrong. "There are jobs out there,"
political science Prof. Ernest Wilson
told a gathering of 200 students last
night. "You should assume that you can
get a job," he said.
WILSON WAS a featured speaker in a
discussion intended to offer alter-
natives to law school for political scien-
ce majors.
He listed fields which are expected to
grow rapidly in this decade, including
labor relations, social work, and jour-
nalism. He also cited the large number
of political scientists working in the
Foreign Service and on Capitol Hill.
"In any system, the most difficult
thing is to get your foot in the door,"
Wilson said. "A political science degree
and 43 cents will get you a cup of cof-
fee."
In order to get jobs, he advised
students to concentrate on one specific
area in their studies, such as a par-
ticular country, industry, or problem.
"Be the best person in that area," he
said.

HE ALSO stressed the importance of
writing well. "It's the principal skill
that most students lack today and most
employers want to see," he said.
The meeting was arranged by the Un-
dergraduate Political Science
Association and the Pi Sigma Alpha
Honors Political Science Association to
"tell students there's more than selling
cars or driving cabs," according to
organizer Lili Kivisto.
Teaching assistance Mark Gibney
related his experience with law school.
"It had a very nice ring to it," he said.
"By my senior year I was obsessed with
getting into law school.
After attending Villanova Law
School, Gibney spent several years as a
practicing attorney. He said he grew
tired of his work, however, because
he could not spend enough time dealing
with public policy issues.
He urged students to plan beyond law
school. "You only have four years of
college. To spend it only on things you
think will get you into law school is a
waste of four years. Think about what
you want to do when you get out."

boutique r
By ELIZABETH SCOTT
Local fans of punk-chic records,
clothing, and paraphernalia can
breathe a sigh of relief. Make, Waves,
the alternative lifestyle boutique which
closed the last week in February,
coasted back into Ann Arbor this week,
to the surprise of customers and em-
ployees alike.

'0eo ens
Owner Mark Thomas summoned the
Make Waves staff back to work Monday
after he bought the space for the State
Street establishment.
The sub-culture store had closed Feb.
26 following the termination of its lease.
Unable to renegotiate a new lease,
Thomas purchased the basement
property outright from previous owner
Ken Brown.
The new version of Make Waves looks
less like a cluttered cellar and more of a
refined record emporium. But don't
worry, it still deals in the same sort of
punk-funk-new wave and otherwise
hard to find records and pertinent punk
accoutrements.
Ann Arbor will be able to supply the
curious, skin heads, mods, and other-
wise misfit nonconformists who
characterize the charm of this All-
American city.

Complied from Associated Prese and
United Press international reprts
State Senate unlikely to pass
tax hike, says Dem. leader
LANSING - Senate Democratic Leader William Faust and state
Treasurer Robert Bowman agreed yesterday the Senate will not pass the 38
percent income tax hike plan approved by the House.
And Gov. James Blanchard, making his strongest statement yet on poten-
tial Senate alterations to the tax package, said "you always have to be
prepared for some compromise."
The governor said he is deferring to Faust's judgement on the need for
changes.
Senate Democrats and Republicans continued to meet behind closed doors
in an attmept to devise caucus positions on the budget bailout plan.
"I don't think the Senate will pass the House bill," said Bowman, who has
been hearing suggestions from senators on changes in the package.
Faust, a Westland Democrat, said "in my judgement, the House-passed
bill as it came over will not pass the Senate."
Reagan pushes jobs program
WASHINGTON - The Reagan administration argued for its "workfare"
program yesterday, declaring the plan could move thousands off welfare
rolls into permanent jobs and boost the treasuries of local governments by
millions of dollars a month.
"Food stamp recipients would have a way to return something to the
community for the support provided," Deputy Assistant Agriculture
Secretary John Bode said, basing his judgment of President Reagan's man-
datory proposal on similar optional programs affecting recipients of food
stamps.
"Community work experience can also help these people find the paying
jobs they would prefer by providing work experience, even opportunities to
enhance their skills, and conveying the positive message that work is impor-
tant," Bode told the Senate Agriculture Committee.
Under workfare, able-bodied welfare recipients would be required to work
at public service jobs, with the value their work based on the minimum wage
rate. The elderly and mothers with young children would be exempt.
The program has been optional for states for more than a year, but only a
score of pilot projects have been undertaken in 18 states. The administration
is pointing to those as evidence that the program should be made mandatory
nationwide.
Right-to-lifers optimistic about
bill cutting abortion funding
LANSING - Abortion foes were guardedly optimistic yesterday about en-
ding state funding of the operations, and a legal expert said it may be ap-
propriate to seek a new court test of the governor's authority on the issue.
Lobbyist Jeff Dongvillo and Robert Destro, a professor of law at Catholic
University of America, made the comments at a news conference called in
connection with Right to Life of Michigan's "Legislative Day."
Dongvillo, a former state representative, said the organization hopes a bill
cutting off funding for welfare abortions will be passed by the Legislature
before the summer recess.
He said an effort to override Gov. James Blanchard's anticipated veto
would be made some time in the fall.
The legislative liaison said chances of overriding the veto look good based
on his preliminary talks with lawmakers, including new ones elected last
fall.
Byrne starts write-in campaign
CHICAGO - Mayor Jane Byrne, who lost to black Rep. HAROLD Washington
in the Democratic Mayoral primary, announced yesterday she will be a
write-in candidate in the April 12 election in a last-ditch effort to stay in of-
fice.
Washington said the announcement improves from 50-1 to 100-1 his chan-
ces of defeating Republican nominee Bernard Epton.
"It's the toughest decision I've ever made," Byrne told a City Hall news
conference. "I've decided to wage the uphill battle as a write-in candidate
for mayor.'~
Washington, a two-term congressman who beat Byrne in the Feb. 22
primary, said he hoped she would "reconsider and back out gracefully,"
Republican Bernard Epton, whose candidacy has thrived amid reluctance
by white Democrats to support Washington's bid to become Chicago's first
black mayor, said: "It certainly won't make the job of winning any easier."
The Democratic National Committee chairman labeled Byrne's decision a
betrayal and termed her effort "mischievous and hopeless." The state
Democratic Party also reaffirmed its support for Washington.
Arthur Godfrey dies at age 79
NEW YORK - Arthur Godfrey, the red-haired ukulele player who greeted
his millions of radio and television fans with a cheery "How'ya, how'ya" and
treated them to homespun humor and conversation, died yesterday. He'
was 79.
The Old Redhead who had lost a lung to cancer, died of pneumonia and em-
physema after a 13-day hospital stay, according to Marilyn Baumel,
spokeswoman for Mount Sinai Hospital.
Godfrey was king of the airwaves in the 1950s with two weekly prime-time
series for CBS, as well as a daily radio show, playing talent scout and host to
stars and occasionally singing in his trademark rusty rumbling voice. With
Boy Scout sincerity, he chatted about his farm in the Blue Ridge mountains
of Virginia,. and his favorite horses, but then shocked the nation by firing
singer Julius LaRosa on the air.
Godfrey with his ukelele, his at the time off-color jokes and pitchman
ability to put over a commercial, was still so well-known by 1960 that he

rated ahead of Richard Burton and John Kennedy in a "recognition" poll.
