Students pick Hart
by wide margin

nation's defense budget.
Students, however, viewed Mondale
as dull, an ineffective speaker, and too
nmuch of a "typical Democrat. They
were critical of Mondale's ties to labor
unions and special interest groups.
"I like Hart," says Mark Gittlman,
an LSA junior. "He'll maintain the
isame stance as Mondale but he'll be a
;little more conservative."
"INSTEAD OF spending a lot of
money on big weapons like the MX-
missile, Hart is going to put money into
smaller more efficient (weapons),"'

-+*"He's less interventionist than
:Reagan and Mondale is leaning too
--much towards social programs,"
Douglas says.
Mondale supporters, however, had
-some harsh words for the younger
.-presidential candidate. "Hart is a
p.:litical wimp and a pretty boy," quips
:irBill Cosgrove an LSA freshman.
r-kAND ALTHOUGH the Democratic
caucus is in the spotlight today, 22 per-

Hart "new ideas," students say at least

:-pbliicies have been controversial.
AS ONE student put it: "He's predic-
.t able." ,
"There's no alternative (to
Reagan)," says LSA sophomore Mark
40Trinklein. "I'm afraid of Hart's
economics, I don't like Mondale - he's
3 too 'Democratic' and Jackson I'm
.afraid of, period."
,Kelly Groves, a sophomore in LSA,
says "I love Reagan's supply-side
economic viewpoint."
"I think he's put class in the White
House and brought class into the nation.
-Also, I like the way he handles the
,press." .
P LSA SENIOR Bob Culver says he's
"going for Reagan" because he has no
faith in the Democratic candidates.

Aside from Rev. Jesse Jackson who

received roughly the same support as
Mondale among students surveyed, the
numbers drop sharply for the
remaining candidates

Jackson supporters cited his success
in getting voters to register. "The more
people that are registered, the more
people there are to vote against

Van Knox, a freshman in the School of
One of the main reasons for Hart's
popularity among students is his heavy
campaigning on college campuses
during the past year. Several students
said they had visited Hart's local cam-
paign headquarters near Liberty and
State Street to pick up information on
the candidate.
Students have been largely respon-
sible for coordinating Hart's campaign
in Michigan and those loyal supporters
say the media has misrepresented their
candidate as a "Kennedy clone" who
has yet to define his "new ideas."
BUT that stereotype is far from the
truth, says Joel Kollin, a sophomore in
the College of Engineering who
traveled by bus with the Hart campaign
to the Iowa caucus last month.
"Hart is being portrayed unfairly by
the media," says Kollin. "(The media)
say that he's nothing more than an
image, but he's a candidate of ideas in
At the beginning of Hart's campaign
when he was talking solely about
issues, the media ignored him, says
Kollin. Now that the candidate has
swept the lead in the primaries, the
media has created an image for Hart.
Taking a new approach to old
problems such as hart outlines in his
book "A New Democracy" will provide
creative and efficient solutions to old
problems, Kollin says.

Democratic front-runners Walter
Mondale and Gary Hart battled for
votes in the Midwest industrial heart of

caucuses that will pick another 251

ago, narrowed to three as Sen. John
Glenn of Ohio brought his disappointing
campaign to a close at a news con-
ference in Washington.
Mondale was in high spirits at a
Chrysler Corp. plant in Belvidere, Ill.,
where he doffed his coat, got behind the
wheel of a silver Dodge Omni-the one
millionth car produced at the
plant-and told workers, "If Gary Hart

management from within the gover-

loan guarantee for Chrysler in 1979.
Hart voted against it.
DRIVING BACK to Chicago, Mon-
dale stopped his motorcade at a Wen-
dy's hamburger outlet in Rockford,
where employees handed reporters
"Where's the Beef?" buttons. Mondale
has turned the fast food slogan into a
cudgel against Hart's "new ideas"
campaign theme.
Hart, in a speech before 1,600 people

at the Chicago Council on Foreign
Relations, said the United States should
not send troops to protect or restore the
flow of oil from the Persian Gulf.
Hart said he would seek to negotiate
with NATO allies a reduction in U.S.

buildup of American naval forces in the
HART SAID he would adopt a policy
of "reciprocity" toward the Soviet
Union that "does not require that we
like or even trust each other," but
would allow the two superpowers to
negotiate arms reductions based on the
premise that neither "can win an arms
race or a nuclear war."
Earlier, Hart told students at a trade
school in Chicago that U.S. and Soviet
military leaders;should establish a joint
communications center in Switzerland
or some other third country to help
reduce the risk of an accidental nuclear

Mondale leads in the race so far, with

THE SCHOOL has five years to im-
plement the cut at 8 percent each year
starting in July.
Berger's presentation to the regents
highlighted the areas in which the
largest cuts will be made: They in-
" .eliminating the Program in Guidance
and Counseling which, according to
Robert Sauve, an assistant to vice
president Frye, is "not one of the
school's stronger points;"
" eliminating the international and
comparative education division of the
Program in Adult and Continuing
" slashing the graduate level audiology
program from Special Education in
Speech and Hearing Sciences;
* reducing the administrative staff
primarily by replacing clerical workers
with newly-purchased word processing
machines; and
* combining the Office of Academic

Services and the Office of Minority
Student Affairs.
BERGER SAID that the reduction of
30 faculty positions could be accom-
plished without laying off tenured
professors. The reductions will be made
by asking professors to retire early or
by transferring them to other posts in
the University.
The reduction in professors will raise
the school's average class size from 14
to 24 students because the school's
enrollment will remain the same. ,
Officials in the school also will
drastically reduce the number of
degrees offered by cutting and com-
bining programs.
Academic units will be cut form 13 to,
four. Degree specializations for,
masters student will be reduced from 63
to 13. And doctoral student degree
specializations will be reduced from 54
to 15.
