By PAULA SCHIPPER
Nobody campaigned for presidency
last night at the Michigan Union, but
nobody came to hear Nobody.
More than one hundred people did
come to hear Wavy Gravy, the 48-year-
old promoter of the "Nobody for
President" campaign.
IF GRAVY calls himself Nobody's
fool, then who is Nobody? He is a set of
plastic chattering teeth.
"Who lowered your taxes?" shouted
Gravy, who was wearing a star-
spangled clown suit and oversized
shoes.
"Nobody!" answered the crowd.
"Who totally understands the
budget?"
"Nobody!"
"Who makes apple pie better than
Mom?."K
"Nobody !h"
GRAVY, WHOSE real name is Hugh
Romney, promoted Nobody in the 1976
and 1980 elections, and he proudly says
over 50 percent of all Americans voted
for Nobody in those elections.

'Before Nobody we ran a rock for president
and a roll for vice president. The idea was
that you could eat the vice president.
During the campaign we gave out cin-
namon rolls.'
-Wavy Gravy

Nobody is not the first politician
Gravy has taken under his wing.
Before Nobody came along, Gravy led
the "Pigasus for President"
movement, promoting "the first black
and white female candidate." Pigasus
was a pit.
"Before Nobody we ran a rock for
president and a roll for vice president,
said Gravy. "The idea was that you

could eat the vice president. During the
campaign we gave out cinnamon rolls."
SELLING U.S. out of North
America" bumper stickers to pay for
his present campaign, Gravy has gone
full steam ahead for Nobody to make a
point about the election process.
"Nobody is in Washington working
for you ... Nobody cares," said Gravy.
'.'Perhaps the charade that happens
every four years is an insult to
everybody's intelligence."
When taking a breather between
presidential races, Gravy spends his
time entertaining at children's
hospitals dressed as a clown. He
recalled his role as an emcee at the 1969
Woodstock festival where he gained
national attention and befriended a
number of famous musicians. I

Gravy has enlisted the help of such
popular performers as the Grateful
Dead and Jackson Browne for another
organization close to his heart, SEVA.
SEVA works against world problems,
including blindness and hunger.
"WHAT HE'S doing for all those
people - I think that's great," said
freshman Rob Sider. "He's more than
just a political person.
"I would absolutely vote for
Nobody," he added.
Besides talking about the "Nobody
for President," campaign, Gravy spoke
about his days travelling around the
country in a caravan of multi-colored
buses. In his travels; Gravy was
arrested several times during political
demonstrati ns, usually in costume.
"WHEN (the police) pop me I just get
out my laminated -that's very impor-
tant, - laminated (Monopoly) get-out-
of-jail card," Gravy said.
After describing his earlier days on
the road, he showed a film of the trip
that included footage of Ypsilanti
where Gravy had another run-in with
police who thought his group was a
band of hippies.
"They'll bury me a hippy," Gravy
said. "I'll always be a hippy. I don't
care. I don't even know what it is."

PRESIDENT Reagan, in his Feb. 7 81mn
announcement that most of the 1,500 third
Marines will be moved from the Beirut As
airport to ships offshore, said Navy U.S.
guns would fire to "provide naval gun- miss
fire and air support against any units of t
firing into greater Beirut from parts of divid
Lebanon controlled by Syria, as well as M(
against any units directly attacking ques
American or multinational force per- supp
sonnel and facilities." woul

Propokowicz and DeVries led the
groups in a exercise in which group
members had to stand under signs on
the wall that said "uncomfortable'
not supportive" to "comfortable/sup-
portive," to show their response to the
questions.
"We wanted to get you thinking about
various issues and getting up and
taking a stand," Prokopowicz said after
the exercise was completed.
The 10 members who participated
said the exercise made them think
about uncomfortable issues they hadn't
considered before.
Following the exercise DeVries and
Prokopowicz told group members
aboutrtheir experiences "coming out,"
and urged members to ask questions.
"You can ask us anything," DeVries
said. "We want to educate MSA, raise
their consciousness, and work with
MSA resources to educate the com-
munity and shape it into a more suppor-
tive atmosphere."
Gittleman said she hopes a candidate
who is aware of gay issues on campus
will run in the upcoming MSA elections
this spring.
"Hopefully, having gay liaisons will
encourage future assemblies to do con-
sciousness raising, advocate change
and (the support) of gay rights," Git-
tleman said.

warplanes flew reconnaissance

eanwhile, congressional critics
