Reagan wins over black leader
WASHINGTON (UPI) - President
Reagan's personal charm worked at
least partially yesterday to persuade a
critical black religious leader that he
will do "some of the things we asked" to
improve economic opportunities for
Reagan met with six leaders of the 7-
million-member National Baptist Con-
vention in the Oval Office after its
president, -the Rev. T.J. Jemison,
criticized him publicly last week at the
ASKED IF he had softened his view
during the meeting, Jemison said,
"Well, once you see a man personally
and talk with him personally, views
that you have when you don't know him
personally - you do have different
points of view."
The president was continuing his
drive to win over minority and white
ethnic voters this week with a speech to
about 240 Hispanic leaders on the oc-
casion of his singing of a proclamation
marking Hispanic Heritage Week.
The drive began Sunday with
Reagan's visit to a Polish Catholic
shrine in Doylestown, Pa., and was to
continue later in the week when the
president campaigns among Polish-and
Jemison, who supported Jesse
Jackson in the Democratic primaries,
told his group's annual meeting last
week: "I don't believe the present ad-
ministration feels the heart-beat, they
desires, the concerns of black people...
I don't believe our nation under the
present leadership will move us into the:
mainstream of American life."
Mondale details deficit program
(Continued from page 1)
THE CUTS include $25 billion from
Reagan's defense buildup; $12 billion
from a plan to hold down health care in-
creases; and $4 billion from farm
The $30 billion in add-ons would go for
programs such as education, the en-
vironment and school lunches.
The balance of the deficit plan en-
visions savings of $51 billion in lower in-
terest costs on the national debt, the
result of a presumed decrease in in-
terest rates, and another $17 billion
resulting from a healthier economy.
In all, Mondale's plan would trim $177
billion from what thesCongressional
Budget office estimates would other-
wise be a dificit of $263 billion.
To reduce spending, Mondale would
eliminate most of the big weapons
urged by Reagan, including the MX
multi-warhead missile, the B-1 long-
range bomber and "Star Wars"
proposals for development of satellites
as launching platforms for nuclear

Council nixes lenient scalping rule
By GEORGEA KOVANIS
The Ann Arbor City Council last night defeated a proposal
to decriminalize ticket scalping by a vote of six to four.
If passed, the measure would have made ticket scalping
punishable by a five dollar fine instead of the state's steeper
puinishment of a $100 fine and 90 days in jail.
"(TICKET SCALPING has) been going on for about 100
years and will probably go on for another 100, said Mayor Lou
Belcher, who voted against the proposal.
Belcher added, however, that the proposal would not have
I given community members free access to sought-after foot-
ball tickets. Professional ticket scalping rings deplete access
to tickets, he said.
- But if passes, the proposal which was sponsored by Coun-
cilmember James Blow (R-Second Ward) would have en-
titled the city police to also enforce the state's penalties if
large numbers of tickets were being re-sold.
COUNCIL member Larry Hunter (D-First Ward), who
voted in favor of the proposal, told council members that
students often scalp footbal tickets in order to enjoy events
such as trips home. "I think there's nothing in the world
that's wrong with that," he said. "That may be the initial
problem that we are trying to regulate... do we really need a
law?" Hunter said.
Hunter labeled ticket scalping "free enterprise" and said it
does not cause problems in the streets of Ann Arbor.
The only way to limit ticket scalping, said councilmember
Dick Deem (R-Second Ward), is for the University to request
student identification at football games.
Although this proposal was defeated, Belcher said he would
support an ordinance with a' slightly higher fine of $25
because scalpers would be taking a loss by paying the $25.

With the help of the Ann Arbor Lion's

$100 to sponsor a lobster and local

nearly $5,000 more through the Great

WHAT EVERY STUDENT
SHOULD KNOW ABOUT THE DIFFERENCES
BETWEEN LEASING A TELEPHONE AND
LEASING .A CHICKEN..
-e 1 44
Yes, there are differences.
And we think yOu should
know what they are.
Ask yourself these
WHEN YOU LEASE A -
CHICKEN, DO YOU
GET THREE MONTHS
Probably not. But when
you lease your telephone
from AT&T this fall, you won't
y' ARE LEASED CHICKENS
TO YOU? -
Ship a chicken? Don't be
silly. However, your AT&T
leased telephone will be
shipped directly to you after
one call to 1-800-555-8111,
pay any lease charges next summer.
You can use your phone at home, and
bring it back to school in the fall.
DO LEASED CHICKENS COME IN A_
SELECTION OF COLORS AND STYLES?
No. Chickens don't come in many colors.
But the AT&T telephone you lease
this fall comes in a variety of
colors and three popular styles.
ARE LEASED CHICKENS
Don't kid yourself. Repairing a chicken is a delicate
process that requires the work of expensive professionals.
However, in the off chance your AT&T leased telephone
or you can pick up your
phone at any of our AT&T
ONE FINAL QUESTION: DOES
IT COST THE SAME TO LEASE
A CHICKEN AS TO LEASE A
TELEPHONE THIS FALL?
Hardly. While we have no hard data
on the exact cost of leasing a chicken,
we can tell you with some certainty that
the cost of leasing a telephone this fall
is far less than you might think.
The decision to lease a chicken or a
telephone, of course, rests with you.
But should you opt for the tele-
phone, remember: you get three
months free next summer, and you can take
the phone home with you. There's a choice
of colors and styles, free repair, and
we'll ship you the phone or you can pick
it up at any of our AT&T Phone Centers.
It doesn't cost much either. And
that's something to crow about.
