Ann Arborites are
unique, Bullard says
By SUSAN ANGEL
'Everyone in Ann Arbor is weird
because they get their "information
from newspapers instead of
television," state representative Perry
Bullard told a group of four students at
Markley Dormitory last night.
Bullard, an Ann Arbor Democrat who
is up for re-election this year, called
Washtenaw County's low unem-
ployment and political savvy "an
island of a good-thing," compared to the
rest of the nation.
HE CONTRASTED Ann Arbor voters
to the average voter who is fooled by
President Reagan's "patriotic and rosy
picture" of national affairs.
"It's a whole different level of
ignorance in the White House now,"
Bullard said. "We're in an ideological
wonderland and it's dangerous.
'Bullard said last October's Grenada'
invasion can be attributed to Reagan's
simplistic world view which sees com-
munism lurking behind every
development in world affairs.
OVER THE - NEXT few weeks,
Bullard will be visiting with students to
try to determine what students' con-
cerns are and to lobby for presidential
candidate Walter Mondale.
Bullard said Michigan will be
unable to make significant headway on
its 12 percent unemployment rate
without a more sympathetic gover-
nment in Washington.
"We need a new government in
Washington or else we're stuck with
boot-strapping in Michigan," he said.
In response to a question about
whether Jesse Jackson might take
away some of Mondale's votes, Bullard
"Jesse Jackson has no chance to win
the presidency or to get the Democratic
nomination. I hope he understands that
unless he can pull a lot of support for
the Democratic party, it's all rhetoric
with no long-term significance.''
At the end of his talk, Bullard joked
that he should go to the T.V. room
where the Michigan-Michigan State
basketball game was playing, in order
to reach more students.

Vice President for Student Service
Henry Johnson kicked off the Minority
Arts and Cultural Festival last night by
urging black students to "be greedy'
and take all you can from this place"
educationally and culturally.
Johnson, speaking to 60 faculty and
students at East Quad, said "the dream
is still alive, if not completely
well...(and) the manifestation is you."
THE FESTIVAL, now in its 10th year,
is sponsored by the East Quad Minority
Council to commemorate Black History
Although Johnson did not speak
specifically about racial problems at
the University, he said black students
have to "work doubly hard to conquer
past barriers and current ones."
Johnson urged students to continue to
pursue Martin Luther King's dream
that black people will be judged on their
abilities,,not on their color, but he said
the tactics of the '80s are different from
those used in the past.
"THE RHETORIC of the '60s and '70s
doesn't cut it today," he said. Johnson
said blacks must "lead with their
brains, not the gut."
He said blacks can make a dent in
their problems by working for can-
didates and voting in November's elec-
tions. He urged the audience to refuse
to accept "a pattern of being used to
abuse," and declared that blacks have
an obligation to work toward the
solution of society's problems.
Naveena Daniels, an LSA sophomore
who is coordinator of the minority
council, said last night'sceremony
drew the largest attendance in the
festival's 10-year history.
The festival offers a number of events
continuing through Sunday. Tomorrow
night there will be a Gospel Concert at
7:30 p.m. in Rackham Auditorium;
Saturday there will be a workshop on
solving minority educational problems
and an art exhibit; and on Sunday,
School of Music and Dance students will
perform a classical recital.
