McGovern takes hard
line against Reagan

targets of McGovern's most vehement
words. "No patriotic American in my
judgement who knows the facts can be
proud of Mr. Reagan's conduct either
with regard to the Marines in Beirut or
with regard to the invasion of
Grenada," he said.
McGovern further criticized
Reagan's refusal to act on pleas to
remove the troops in Lebanon from the
"sitting duck position in Beirut Air-
port" before the catastrophic bombing
of the Marines.
"THIS IS A national scandal paid for
by the blood of 239 young Marines, and
that scandal rests right on the
shoulders of the man whose popularity
is rising, the commander-in-chief of the
United States," McGovern said.
McGovern moved on to attack the in-
vasion of Grenada as an unjustified use
of U.S. military power. "How much
toughness do you really have to have
for the world's most powerful nation to
overrun a tiny island whose native
populaton plus all of the foreign visitors
could have been seated in the Univer-
sity of Michigan stadium?" he said.
A woman was wounded with a butc-
her knife by a man she had refused to
have sex with early Friday morning,
Ann Arbor police said. The man, who
was an acquaintance of the woman,
threw a brick through the window of the
woman's house on the 1100 block of East
Ann after she had turned him down. He
left the house, but returned at ap-
proximately 1 a.m., when the woman
let him inside. The man then allegedly
cut the woman with the knife.
Ann Arbor police reported a string of
burglaries this weekend in several area
residences and businesses. The Food
Mart at 1757 Plymouth Rd. was
burglarized at approximately 2 a.m.
Sunday morning by thieves who en-
tered the store after throwing a rock
through the front door. Police said that
cash, cigarettes, and soft drinks valued
at less than $700 were taken. Complete
Cuisine at 326 S. Main was als broken
into Sunday morning between 2 a.m.
and 5:40 a.m. Burglars apparently en-
tered through a rear door and took ap-
proximately $2,900 in cash from a desk
in the store's office, police said.
A resident in the 600 block of Church
Street foiled a burglary attempt at noon
on Saturday when a man was found
ransacking a room in the resident's
apartment. The burglar fled before
police arrive at the scene.

In addition to bringing home the
Marines, McGovern's other major
defense policy would be to push for the
nuclear freeze and to cut U.S. military
spending by 25 percent.
MCGOVERN'S domestic plans in-
clude providing low-cost government
loans for education and job training; a
public works project to build "the
world's finest railway" by the year
2000; eliminating tax loopholes; and
putting the full burden of welfare costs
on the federal government.
The former senator chose Ann Arbor
to begin his Michigan campaign
because he carried Washtenaw County
by 5,000 votes in the 1972 election, when
he ran unsuccessfully for president
against Richard Nixon. Ann Arbor
residents "stood in line until 10:00 at
night to vote for McGovern, even when
they knew Nixon had already won,"
said Cheryl Bullard, who helped to plan
McGovern's weekend in Ann Arbor.
Nostalgia brought some to hear
McGovern speak, in a day that began
with a brunch held by the Ann Arbor
Democratic Women's Club and ended
with a viewing of ABC's movie "The
Day After," at Boards and Billiards on
South Main Street.
AT A reunion of his 1972 campaign
workers in the Michigan Union, the
twenty who attended wore favorite
McGovern campaign buttons from a
Not all the reunion participants
called themselves 1983 McGovern sup-
porters, however. "This is supposed to
be a reunion, and that's why I came up.
I think there are better choices," said
Oakland County resident Al Frank, who
established McGovern's campaign
headquarters there in 1972.
McGovern addressed people like
Frank at the end of his speech in the
MLB, when he asked those in attendan-
ce for help in his campaign. "I want to
hear the kind of views that I'm ex-
pressing, even if you don't think I'm
going to win, or you're committed to
some other candidate," he said.
