Candidate speaks out for women
By STACEY SHONK
Women in the United States cannot
support Ronald Reagan for
president if they support women's
issues, a Democratic candidate for
University regent said in a speech at
East Quad last night.
Lansing spoke to a group of about fif-
ty people gathered for the second part
of the Bullard film series, which
focused on women's rights.
SHE SAID that Reagan's victory in
the 1980 election was decided by "ap-
proximately 27 percent of those eligible
to vote . .. the oldest, whitest, most
masculine (constituents) to elect a
president in recent history."
Through the efforts of the League of
Women Voters and the Democratic par-
ty, Lansing said that "8-10 million more
women will vote in this election than the
In an election that she thinks will be
closer than many believe, those ad-
ditional voters could tip the scales in
In electing governor James Blan-
chard in 1982, she says women played a
decisive role. Lansing has written
several books concerning the voting
patterns of women, and is credited with
coining the phrase "gender gap."
THE EASTERN Michigan University
political science professor also urged
students to exercise their right to vote.
"Quit jogging for twenty minutes and
get out and vote," she told the crowd.
Also present at the film and
discussion that followed was state Rep.
Perry Bullard (D-Ann Arbor), who
sponsored the event.
Bullard blasted the Reagan ad-
ministration for policies he said abuse
human as well as women's rights.
"I want to somehow communicate
the difficulties we're going to have with
promoting the rights of women, the dif-
ficulty we're going to have with the
militarization of society and ensuring
social justice if we don't make a very
crucial change in the White House,"
Mondale, Gromyko meet at United Nations
From AP and UPI
UNITED NATIONS - Walter F.
Mondale, the Democratic presidential
hopeful, met yesterday with Soviet
Foreign Minister Andrei Gromyko and
said afterward he thinks there is an
"opportunity . . . to make significant
progress" on arms control and other
issues when Gromyko meets President
Reagan at the White House today.
Mondale went into the meeting
promising he did not want to upstage
President Reagan, who made a con-
ciliatory overture to the Soviets in a
speech to the United Nations earlier thi
"THERE WERE no commitments
given to me at all," Mondale told a
news conference after his 90-minute
meeting with the Soviet foreign
minister. "I did not try to get any com-
mitment. I was not negotiating. But it's
my judgement there is the possibility of
an opportunity. We'll find out
Speaking with Mondale, the Soviet
statesman said he had advocatged "a
turn for the better" in relations bet-
ween the two nuclear giants and said:
"some of the ideas suggested to (Mon-
dale) in this context, should materialize
in Washington policy and would open up
certain possibilities for bringing the
positions of the two powers closer, and
for subsequent agreements on arms
limitation and disarmament, above all
in the field of nuclear weapons.''
Just hours before his meeting with
Mondale, Gromyko spoke before the
U.N. General Assembly.
IN HIS speech, Gromyko made two
specific proposals for resolutions to be
enacted by the General Assembly -
one preserving outer space exclusively
for peaceful uses, and the other banning
As examples of such terrorism,
Gromyko cited the U.S. invasion of
"tiny Grenada which dared to assert its
sovereignty," and Nicaragua, whose
people "are heroically resisting in the
face of an undeclared war organized by
Reagan, in his U.N. address, called
for a constructive dialogue with the
Soviets, and U.S. officials described
Wednesday's private meeting between
Gromyko and Shultz as a "good start."

Ya e stafstrike
begis second day
. NEW HAVEN, Conn. (UPI)-Some
1,500 white collar workers, mostly
women, continued striking against Yale
University yesterday forcing students
off the Ivy League campus for a second
day into makeshift classrooms and to
fast-food restaurants for meals.
Their walkout-bolstered by the
refusal of the 1,300-member affiliate
.maintenance and food service workers'
union to cross campus-wide picket
line-failed to halt classes. But 12 of the
30 dining halls closed and a group of
technicians stalled cancer research at
the Yale School of Medicine.
The largest strike in Yale's 83-year
history stemmed from the union's
rejection Tuesday of its first ever con-
tract, on the grounds of alleged
discrimination over wages and job
Yale called it a final straw.
Now new talks were scheduled and
prospects of a long strike seemed

has a vote on student conduct rules un-
der the present bylaws, the assembly
essentially has no real power since the
regents can take away that vote at any
"THERE'S NO GAIN or loss of power
if the regents do one thing or another
because the power to do everything has
always been vested in the board,"
Brown, an attorney, protested
students' arguments that they should
be punished through civil courts rather
than through an internal University
system. "If they would rather go to jail,
they don't know much about our
criminal justice system," he said.
If MSA flatly rejects a code, Brown
said, he would give "serious con-
sideration" to a bylaw change.
MSA THIS week approved a
resolution saying students would
suggest revisions to the code if the
regents and the administration would
first guarantee that the assembly's veto
power would not be taken away.
"All we're asking is 'If you don't
change the rules, we'll work with you.' I
don't think that's unreasonable," said
MSA President Scott Page.
But Regent Deane Baker (R-Ann Ar-
bor) disagreed, saying MSA's request
is "not a reasonable process.''
"IT'S LIKE saying, "I'll negotiate, if
you give me the right to veto.' It's
unusual that someone would ask
something like that," he said.
Asked whether he favored a bylaw
change, Baker said he wasn't
"prepared to make any judgement
yet." But last spring Baker said he was
willing to sidestep MSA in order to
place a code on the University's books.
Regent Sarah Power said she would
not rule out the possibility of changing
the bylaws, and said she would not
make MSA any guarantees.
"IF THEY (MSA members) come in.
with flat demands, then I am sure (the
demands) won't be.. . received," she
Power said she supports a code
because the majority of students she
has heard either in private conver-
sations or during public comments
session at regents' meetings favor
some type of guidelines.
Regent Robert Nederlander (D-
Detroit),tone of the authors of the rules
for the University Community, the con-
duct code that was adopted in 1973, said
he would vote for a new set of guidelines
if they were an improvement.
NEDERLANDER would not say
whether he would change the bylaws in
order to replace the existing conduct
Regents James Waters (D-
Muskegon) and Nellie Varner (D-
Detroit) were not available for com-
Except for Dunn, all of the regents
contacted said they thought the ad-
ministration would eventually draft a
code that both students and MSA could
find acceptable. They said they would
not change their bylaws until they were
convinced students would outright
reject any revision.
But that position leaves students in a
paradoxical situation, Page said.
During MSA elections last April,
students voted to give MSA's decision-
making authority on the code to the en-
tire student body. By direct vote, either
during next April's MSA elections or in
a special election, students will have to
decide whether they want the proposed

vote, MSA must reject any code, Page
