One resident told the Daily he was sure he read it in
Jeanne Dixon's predictions in the Enquirer during
the summer. But a call to the National. Enquirer's
Florida headquarters revealed that Dixon doesn't
predict in the Enquirer; she writes for The Star.
A Star staff member searched through Dixon's 1983
predictions and told the Daily he could find no
evidence of tragedy in the Big Ten.
So it was back to the Enquirer, where the staff was
most unhelpful.
"Would you please check to see if you've had any

Richard Arrington, mayor pf Bir-
minham, Alabama, said he had mixed
emotions abut black activist Jesse
Jackson's announced candidacy for the
Democratic presidential nomination.
The mayor said he didn't know if this
was the right time for a black to run for
Arringston said he is leaning toward
supporting former Vice President
Walter Mondale and is worried that
Jackson's candidacy might hurt
Democratic Party unity.
The mayor said fragmenting the par-
ty so early might hurt the interests of
blacks, Hispanics and other groups that
want a voice in drawing up the party
"By the time you settle on the
nomination, the platform is very much
in place," he said.
Arrington said he would discuss
Jackson's candidacy with other black
mayors leaning towards or actively
supporting Mondale, including Richard
Hateher of Gary, Ind.; Andrew Young
of Atlanta, Tom Bradley of Los Angeles
and Coleman Young of Detroit.
He said it was "hard to say" how
Jackson's candidacy would affect
Alabama's Democratic presidenltial
primary next March.
"Jesse has proven to have as strong a
black following as any black in this
country," Arrington said.
He said he expects 25 percent or more
of the voters in the primary to be black,
but he didn't want to predict how many
would vote for Jackson.
Atlanta Mayor Andrew Young, who
had maintained that a Jackson cam-
paign would be a dangerous strategy
that would raise and deflate the hopes
of poor people, said yesterday that "I
have to respect his decision and hope
for the best."
