MONDALE told 500 enthusiastic supporters at
the Detroit Metropolitan Airport that he had
struggled for passage of the bill allowing the
government to prevent Chrysler from going
bankrupt while Hart opposed the measure.
"I took my stand and we succeeded," Mondale
said. "He took his stand, and thank God he failed."
His remarks about the auto industry were well
received by the predominantly-union audience.
Mondale is expected to do very well in
Michigan's caucus tomorrow because of his sup-

A group calling themselves the
Graduate Students for an Open Univer-
sity are still collecting petition
signatures to protest the Graduate-Em-
ployees Organization's mandatory fee
for teaching assistants. The group had
hoped to use the signatures to force a
teaching assistant vote on whether the
fee should be mandatory.
A story in yesterday's Daily incorrec-
tly stated that the students ended the
petition drive when they discovered
that there are no provisions in Michigan
law to allow such a vote to occur.
The group had hoped to force a vote
on the fee requirement through a
national law allowing such an election if
one-third of the union requests it.
But the national law does not affect
University employees because a state
law, which does not allow such an elec-
tion, preempts it.,
Although there are no provisions for
such a vote, the group is continuing
their petition drive as an effort to show
support for a voluntary fee system.
They hope to convice GEO and the
University to negotiate a voluntary fee
when GEO's contract is renegotiated
next year, group members said.

Nine protesters blockaded the front doors of the Union with wheelchairs yesterday to draw attention to the difficulty
handicapped people have entering the building. With the protesters in the way, pedestrians were forced to walk around
the side of the building and enter through the handicapped-accessible side doors.
T'S TIME again for campus Greeks to sing, drink, and
dance to raise money for charitable organizations.
University President Steven Muller made no attempt to
stop them. In fact, Muller is offering $100 to any un-
undergraduate who can open the vintage safe. The University
does not know the combination to the lock and doesn't want
to damage the safe, but they would like to know what's been
inside it since the 1920s or 1930s. Muller learned of the safe
during a recent tour of the school's archeological museum
in Gilman Hall, the oldest building on campus, built in 1915.

about 10,300 people. The figure a year ago was 1,641
families. "When our options are limited, we're going to run
into these problems," said Mayor Edward Koch. City of-.
ficials said the sharp increase in the number of homeless
families is due to the scarcity of affordable apartments,
and the conversion of cheaper downtown hotels into expen-
sive apartments. There are currently 38 homeless families
housed in $121-a-night rooms at the Tudor Hilton in Manhat-
tan and in $100-a-night rooms at Kennedy Airport's Hilton
Inn. Koch said the families would be moved into cheaper
