lives must be considered."
Pat Willerton, a second-year
graduate student in political science,
mentioned Reagan's restrictions on
foreign travel, particularly to Corn-
ruunist countries, and said that "the
issue of too much governmental inter-
ference in our personal lives must be
considered."
Reagan opponents also criticized the
administration's military involvement
in other countries.
ECONOMICS GRADUATE student
Dean Baker accused Reagan of lying to
the American public about last year's
invasion of Grenada and the gover-
nment's involvement in Nicaragua.
Student debates after the rally also
went beyond the civil liberties issue,
focusing primarily on defense spen-
ding, budget deficits, and Reagan's
policies toward the poor.
One anti-Reaganite asked an op-
ponent: "How can you justify 2,000,000
poor people in the world's richest coun-
try?" He then yelled: "Look into your-
self, and you'll find a disgust at this."
PERHAPS THE most blunt Reagan
bpponent Mark Weishart, an economics
graduate student,. said that Reagan
"stands for all that is wrong in this
country - racism, sexism, and im-
perialism."
Although outnumbered, Reagan's
supporters did make an appearance.
.LSA senior Duane Chetosky believed
that Har t+ and other "left-wingers"
base their anti-Reagan appeals on
emotionalism, rather than facts." He
also said, in response to charges that
Reagan is a warmonger, "Were we
supposed to throw rocks at the Nazis?"
The Bedtime For Bonzo Street
Theatre Ensemble was founded to
"spur people to think" about political
issues," said group member Diane
Meisenholter, an LSA senior.

Students encouraged
to register to vote

(Continued from Page 1)
so last Thursday I registered in the
fishbowl. I still am going to find out
about issues before the election," said
Wendy Bowers, an LSA senior.
"I had never registered before. I just
turned 18," said Anna Goshko, an LSA
freshwoman who registered to vote
during Festifall. "I waited to register
because I wanted to be involved in the
city where I live," she said.
ALTHOUGH MANY students have
registered to vote in next month's elec-
tion, some just aren't excited by
politics.
"I haven't really been paying much
attention to what's going on in Ann Ar-
bor," said Leslie Kucher, an LSA
sophomore who has already voted by
absentee ballot. "When it comes to
politics, I'm basically ignorant. I ask
my dad who I should vote for. Isn't that
terrible?"
Volunteers at the tables are required
by law to keep the process non-
partisan, but PIRGIM does compile a
list of those who have registered and
distributes the list to political
organizations.

Though potential voters must
register by tonight, the deputy
registrars aren't required to submit the
forms for five more days. And the city
clerk won't know how successful the
project is until then.
Volunteers will register voters today
at' the fishbowl and at the UGLi until 2
p.m., when the tables will move to West
Quad and Mosher-Jordan dormitory for
the final push.
"Such a big drive should result in a
very high number of newly registered
voters," said Andrew Hartman,
president of the College Democrats.
"But all those who register don't ac-
tually go to the polls in November."
Daily editor Sue Barto filed a

Hunger walkers hike for $35,000

By MARK LANDIS
Despite an overcast sky and a constant drizzle that later
became a downpour, nearly 950 people gathered outside the
Zion Lutheran Church Sunday afternoon, checked in, and set
off down West Liberty Street toward campus to begin Ann
Arbor's Tenth-Annual Hunger Walk.
The walk, sponsored by local church groups, raised about
$5,000 for local and Third World relief projects, according to
Larry Macklem, the treasurer for the walk.
BECAUSE OF the dreary weather Sunday, Macklem said
he only expected six to seven hundred people, but he was
pleased with the actual turnout.
"I just think it show that people that go on the Hunger Walk
are committed to raising money to help eliminate hunger and
aren't going to let a little rotten, weather stop them,"
Macklem said.
The majority of the money raised, 65 percent, will aid
health care in Pakistan, Central American refugees, and
drought-ridden areas in Mozambique, Ghana, Zimbabwe,
and Ethiopia, said Lenore Binns, coordinator of the walk.
MOST OF the remaining money will be divided equally
among seven local relief agencies such as the Peace Neigh-
borhood Center and the Father Patrick Jackson House,
Macklem said. "The bulk of the walkers came from the local
congregations," Binns said. Although no campus
organizations officially participated in the walk, Binns said

she thought many University students became involved
through the campus ministries.
This year's coordinating staff could not actively seek
students from campus, Macklem said. "We really were run-
ning on a very small organizing committee. "It's not that we
weren't interested in U-M students. It's that we just couldn't
reach quite far enough to target students.
OF THE PEOPLE who participated, Macklem said he
thought many of them had been in previous walks. "We don't
have any data, but my gut feeling is that probably three-
quarters are repeats and one-quarter are new walkers."
For some people, Macklem said the walk has become a
tradition. "You wouldn't miss that anymore than you would
miss Christmas," he added.
Jack Caldwell, an electrical engineer at the University's
Space Physics Research Lab, said he has only missed a
couple of walks since they began ten years ago. "It's sort of a
happening," he said. "Rain or shine, it's a good experience,
and you feel you're doing something positive for hunger."
Although the walkers could choose between a 10-mile or a
shorter 10-kilometer route, Binns said most of them took the
longer, more scenic route which ran through Gallup Park
and Nichols Arboretum.
About a third of the walkers chose the 10-kilometer route,
which passed in front of the Frieze Building before heading
back to Zion Lutheran Church on the city's west side, Binns
said.

"wimpy imae
dale was at his best tonight," said
Susan Hoffman, secretary of the
College Republicans on campus.
"I think tonight people really got to
see who Fritz Mondale is," said Lily
Ihilevich. "He started out kind of
nervous, but then relaxed, starting
laughing and joking around, and he
came across a lot more human."
"I think that Mondale was really
able to get his message across,"
Markus said. "He showed that he has a
plan to deal with the issues of the
future, whereas Reagan really didn't
get across what he has in mind."
"I think Mondale impressed a lot of
people in both parties. I took a survey in
my class this morning; a hundred
students, mostly Republicans. 65
thought that Mondale won," Markus
said.
"As far as the overall effect, I think
it's still uncertain. Definitely, Mondale
is a lot better off now than he was 24
hours ago, but it's still too early to tell
how much better off," Markus added.
South Quad
evacuated
Smoke filled parts of the fifth floor
of South Quadrangle late last night,
forcingtthe evacuation of the dorm's
residents.
As the residents filled the streets
around South Quad and the ground
floor of the Michigan Union,
firefighters searched for the source of
the smoke. One resident said he was
told the fire began when a student left
a cigarette burning in a room and it
ignited some paper nearby.
Meanwhile, the South Quad residen-
ts revived their perpetual rivalry with
neighboring West Quad. While the
evacuees in the street chanted "West
Quad sucks," one West Quad resident
was playing the song "Buring Down
the House" on a stereo.
Residents returned to the building
shortly before midnight, and fire in-
spectors arrived shortly thereafter to
try and determine the cause of the
problem. No injuries were reported.

That's good advice.
We're learning that moderation is the key

our salt intake, for example.

to a safe and healthy life. We are each becoming
overall physical fitness. That's why we're watching

We know that there are certain safety lines and we don't cross them. Because excess means
abuse and abuse means problems.
The majority of people who drink alcohol do so responsibly because they do so in moderation.
They know how to enjoy alcohol beverages and gain the social, personal and health benefits
that come with responsible drinking.
They know the responsibility they take on when they drink alcohol beverages or serve these
beverages to others...a responsibility for safety, health and proper conduct.
And they know the best way to practice that responsibility is through moderation.
By knowing their limits, and sticking to them.
By neither accepting, nor offering "one-for-the-road."
By neither condoning nor contributing to irresponsible behavior.
And by exhibiting at all times, a responsible attitude about alcohol.
They know the special responsibility that comes with the decision to drink alcohol...moderation.
That's the only way to drink...responsibly.
