New candidate enters
Rack ham election

The Michigan Daily -' Wednesday, February 1, 1984 - Page 3
Judge blocks
Navy 's

By MIKE WILKINSON
*A new candidate announced plans to
run for the Rackham Student Gover-
nment (RSG) presidency yesterday
against Angela Gantner, who had been
running unopposed.
Kodi Abili, a doctoral student in
higher education, will attempt to cap-
ture the seat mainly through mail-in
votes, which are due at the RSG office
by 5 p.m. Friday. Yesterday was the
last day students could vote at polling
places in the Fishbowl and the lobby of
the LSA building.
ABILI SAID he decided to run
because he thought it would make the
race more interesting and would bring
more students to the polls. "I like elec-
tions and voting, but I hate a one-person
race," Abili said.
He is currently serving on RSG as the
representative from the education
division. Ganter is the council's
humanities division representative.
The remaining candidates in the elec-
tion are running uncontested. Public
Health graduate student Hillary Murt is
seeking re-election for the vice
presidential seat, and candidates
Dwight Fontenot and Roger Schwartz
FHPP

are running for the two open seats in the
social sciences division.
RSG DIRECTOR Vickie Buerger said
yesterday that it is very possible for a
candidate to win through mail-in votes
- humanities division councilmember
Karen Staudt gained her seat through
mailed ballots in the fall 1983 elections.
The mail-in vote, Buerger said, is of-
fered "as a convenience for those who
can't get to the (polls),"
"It also is a way to campaign,"
Buerger said. "(Candidates) can give
the ballots to their friends and have
them send them in by a certain date."
BUERGER SAID that polling places
drew twice the number of candidates
yesterday as they did Monday, with 44
students voting compared to Monday's
18. RSG is expecting a considerable
number of mailed-ir ballots, however,
Buerger said.
RSG election turnouts have been low
in the past few years, with 150 of the
6,000 Rackham students voting last
year and only 12 students casting
ballots in the 1982 elections.
The ballots will be counted Friday
night, with results expected late Friday
or early Saturday.

MADISON, Wis. (UPI) - A federal
judge yesterday ordered the Navy to
stop work immediately on its Project
ELF nuclear submarine com-
munications system and to file a new
environmental impact statement on the
controversial project.
Judge Barbara Crabb, who had
heard testimony on ELF late last year,
said a 1977 environmental impact
statement filed with the Environmental
Protection Agency was insufficient for
the project, first proposed in the 1960s.
HER PERMANENT injunction order
meant that the Navy is to stop construc-
tion of the system in Upper Michigan
near Marquette and not to upgrade its
testing facility near Clam Lake, Wis.
The Navy also was told to quit putting
ELF receivers on submarines.
After she turned down the temporary'
injunction request, the Navy late last
year began construction of the
Marquette link to the system, known as
Project Sanguine when it was first draf-
ted two decades ago. Then it was en-

proj ect
visioned as a huge communications
grid covering a big chunk of northern
Wisconsin.
Wisconsin Gov. Anthony Earl said "I
think it is a very good wruling. I think
Judge Crabb by banning the project
recognizes that it is not defensible by
any standpoint."
"THIS STOPS the Navy cold in its
tracks," said David Merritt, field direc-
tor in Michigan for Stop Project ELF.
"This stops a major first strike nuclear
communication trigger."
Clam Lake was built in the 1960s. Ex-
cept for a brief period in this decade
when it was shutdown for lack of fun-
ding, technicians have been able to
communicate with deep-diving nuclear
subs throughout the world.
The Navy has said the system is in-
tended to thwart Russian attempts to
jam radio signals in the events of a
nuclear attack.
But through the years environmen-
talists and others have sought through
court actions and protests to block the
project.

The victorian mansion which housed Laura Ingalls Wilder on NBC's series
"Little House on the Prairie" is destroyed in the show's final episode,
scheduled for February 6. Star and producer Michael Landon decided to

when the lease for the set expired.

'U' students to campaign for Hart in Iowa

By NEIL CHASE
About 40 University students supporting Sen. Gary
Hart's bid for the presidency will travel to Iowa over
mid-winter break to help out in the final days before
the Feb. 20 Democratic caucus.
The group made final preparations at a meeting
last night. The students will spend three days
knocking on doors and making phone calls in
Waterloo, trying to drum up support for the Colorado

senator in the important Iowa poll.
A weak showing there or in the New Hampshire
primary on Feb. 28 by any of the eight contenders for
the democratic nomination could end their cam-
paigns, said Mark Blumenthal, an LSA senior who is
heading the Hart campaign on campus.
"If we can do well in (Iowa and New Hampshire),
Hart can get the national exposure he hasn't had yet,
and that makes our job in Michigan that much
easier," he said,

Each student will have to pay $10 for the road trip,
in which they'll get the chance to observe the caucus
process first hand. The remaining' expenses have
been paid for by about $500 in contributions from
local Democrats, Blumenthal said.
"I really enjoy political work," said LSA freshman
Pete Giangreco, who will be part of the Hart con-
tingent. "It's really an exciting thing for all of us to be
involved."

Funds for Vietnam vets diverted

WASHINGTON (AP) - A
congressional subcommittee said
yesterday the Veterans Administration
diverted to other purposes nearly 40
percent of the money Congress ear-
marked to run storefront centers for
counseling troubled Vietnam veterans.
But Dr. Donald Custis, chief medical.
director of the VA, said, the money was
unspent because his agency had asked
Congress to appropriate more money
than turned out to be needed.
"KNOWING the great unmet needs,
we have consistenly overestimated
what the demand would be," he said in

an interview. "We've turned no one
away."
Psychologist John Wilson of
Cleveland State University, an expert
on the emotional problems of some
Vietnam veterans, called the diversion
of funds tragic.
"It would mean more suicide, many
broken families and many divorces,"
he said.
THE REAGAN administration tried
shortly after taking office to kill the
counseling program, but gave up in the
face of overwhelming votes in both
houses of Congress to keep them

operating.
Since 1979, an estimated 212,000
veterans have gotten help at the
storefront centers, often from their
fellow veterans, away from the for-
malities, long waits and paperwork of-
ten encountered in VA hospitals.
Correction
U.S. Senate candidate Jack Lousma
graduated from the University with an
undergraduate degree in 1959. He was
incorrectly identified in yesterday's
Daily as a Law School alumnus.

'Slavery' victim testifies
(Continued from Page 1)

Barris then asked Fulmer and Koz-
minski to stand side by side to show that
Fulmer was taller than Kozminski.
Two medical doctors testified that
Molitoris had four rib fractures, hyper-
tension, and a curved spine when he
was removed from the farm last
August.
The doctors said they couldn't explain
how the injuries had occurred, but said
Molitoris had gained eighteen pounds
within 19 weeks after being taken into
custody by the state.
ANOTHER key witness yesterday,
social worker, Ruth Lutz, testified that
Margarethe Kozminski wanted to know
where Fulmer and Molitoris were when
Lutz removed them in August because
she "didn't want them on the streets."
Lutz has visited the farm twice, both
times following calls from peopleonthe
farm. Lutz dismissed the case after her
January, 1981, visit because she
thought nothing was out of the ordinary.
On her second visit last August she
removed the two men.
But Fulmer testified he was "afraid
to tell the truth (when Lutz came in
1981.)" He also stated that Ike "dressed
up" he and Molitoris when he knew that
Lutz was coming.
FULMER SAID he once asked Ike
Kozminski if he could visit his brothers
and Kozminski said no, adding that he
didn't care about him.
Fulmer's sister, Leonore Wilson, 52,
testified that Margarethe Kozminski

told her she had kidnapped Fulmer
because she knew he was being abused
on the farm he had been working on.
WILSON SAID she had only spoken to
Fulmer four times because she was
also placed in a foster home at an early
age.
During the end of his cross-
examination of Wilson, Barris accused
Fulmer's sister of neglecting Fulmer,
and said, "as far as you're concerned,
Bob could drop off the face of this ear-
th." Barris' comment met with hissing
from the observers in the courtroom.
The trial will continue today.
