FLINT -They came to the Hyatt Regency waving fist-sized
American flags, some sporting the "Gerry Ferraro Hair-
cut," but the Democratic vice presidential candidate didn't
make her scheduled appearance at the hotel to address the
crowd of around 600.
Instead, three hours after she was planned to speak, she
arrived at the Bishop International Airport to be greeted by
only a small group of mostly female supporters.
BUT THE DAY'S mishaps - wet weather and an airplane
breakdown cancelled two scheduled speeches - did not
douse the spirits of those who travelled to Flint to support or
protest the Democratic ticket.
Close to 40 members of an anti-abortion group moved in-
doors, hoping to show the Mondale-Ferraro boosters their
discontent with the Democrats' "pro-choice" stance on the
When they began a chorus of "Life yes, Ferraro no" and
held up their signs declaring abortion as murder, the
Democrats, who far outnumbered the group, decided the
protesters wouldn't steal the show. They countered the
protester's chants with "We want Ferraro" and "Reagan is a

became clear that something had happened to Ferraro's air-
One Mondale-Ferraro supporter didn't approve of Rev.
Harvey Anderson's pro-life rhetoric and grabbed at the
poster he had been waving. Anderson exchanged words and a
shove with the other man.
Later, the two men exchanged some blows and police
questioned him. But Anderson returned minutes later to aid
the pro-life congregation in its attempt to outshout the
"TAKE YOUR slavery home. We want freedom for
women," screamed one Mondale supporter. "Ferraro's a
true barbarian. She voted in favor of fetal experiments,"
shouted Lynn Mills, a pro-life activist, as she showed a young
boy pictures of a woman going through an abortion.
When Ferraro's plane finally landed in Flint, the crowd
had thinned to around 100 and the protesters were gone.
Making the best of a fouled up day on the campaign trail,
Ferraro admitted that while she could remedy budget
problems and could handle negotiations with the Soviet
Union, she could not fix the wheel of her airplane which broke
down in Toledo, Ohio.
Ferraro then went on to say "the pundits are wrong" about
her ticket's chances in November. She urged voters to con-
sider the effects high interest rates have on the auto industry,
saying that they have made it difficult for average citizens to
Ferraro said voters must think not only about today but
about the country in the next 25 years and the impact another
Reagan term would have on the environment, the Supreme
Court, and already high deficits.
Ferraro attacked President Reagan's refusal to release his
plan for cutting taxes and lauded Mondale's openness in ad-
mitting that taxes have to be raised.
Questionedabout the continued appearance of anti-abortion
protesters at her campaign stops, Ferraro said "This is
America. That is part of the beauty of this country - people

University Prof. Bunyan Bryant will
announce his candidacy for city mayor
today, according to a statement
released yesterday by his election
Bryant, a natural resources professor
who has never held public office, said
yesterday that his administration
would take a special interest in city
planning and development.
"IF WE DEVELOP too quickly, it's
going to destroy some of the character
of the city as we know it," he said.
He said he would attempt to slow the
process of development until the city
could plan effectively.
"I am for growth, he said. "It's a
question of the direction and the rate we
should be going."
HE ALSO SAID that the planning
should not be left only in the hands of
the city's financial elite and industry.
"It seems to me that there are people
who come in from outside of Ann Arbor
and who very often get tax abatements
for their industry," he said. "We have
to look very carefully at the whole issue
of tax abatements."
Bryant said he will also emphasize
day care for children and hopes to set
facilities up at many of the city's in-
BRYANT SAID HE would also like to
tackle the city's parking problem.
Bryant said his experience with town
and country planning, his deep com-
mitment in civil rights will help him
win the election. Bryant said he will
strive to make city council pass civil
rights legislation and policies.
"I think that I will bring a view to the
office of mayor that is new and
refreshing," Bryant said. "I think I
have a good chance of winning on terms
of my background of social justice," he
In February's Democratic primary,
Bryant will face former State Senator
Mayor Louis Belcher, (a
Republican,) has announced
repeatedly that he will not seek election
after seven years in office.
Businessman Richard Hadler is run-
ning unopposed on the Republican side
of the ticket.
