Reagan welcomed
to Michigan by
Catholic school

All even
Padres take
game 2, 5-3

From AP and UPI
A small Catholic school cheered
President Reagan in a stuffy gym-
nasium yesterday, shouting loudest for
tuition tax credits, prayer, elimination
of nuclear weapons, and the Detroit
Student Glen Williams asked what
Reagan would do if he could do one
thing to make the world better.
"TOTAL elimination of nuclear
weapons," Reagan replied, prompting
an outburst of cheers and applause.
"It was neat because it was as if he
was talking to us," said Julie Belleville.
"You felt like you knew him a really
long time."
Kathy Gushman said, "It's like he's
your best friend, the way he was
talking, not like to a million people on
IN WARREN, buffeted by new
questions about President Reagan's
health and stamina, White House of-
ficials yesterday released details of
physicals they said showed Reagan, 73,
"is a mentally alert, robust man."
The White House, goaded by a flurry
1 of news reports, opinion pieces, and
comments by Democrats, also moved
to thwart the emergence of the
president's age as a wild card in the
final four weeks of the campaign.
As Reagan began a day-long foray in
suburban Detroit - including two ap-
pearances before youthful audiences -

pronounced him in "excellent" health.
While acknowledging the president
"was tired" at the end of the debate,
Ruge added, "Everybody was tired."
AS HE WAS entering the college

questions about his health. Asked about

SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) - Rev. Jerry
Falwell says he expects most abortions
to be outlawed by a' Supreme Court
reshaped through second-term appoin-
tments by President Reagan.
The founder of the Moral Majority
says he doesn't expect to be consulted
on those appointments - contrary to
Walter Mondale's allegations.
HOWEVER, he doesn't disagree with
the Democratic presidential can-
didate's contention that President
Reagan's appointments in a second
term would reshape the court and its
decisions into a conservative mold.
During an airport news conference on
Tuesday, Falwell said a Reagan victory
in the November election would mean
the appointment of two to five justices
with strong conservative credentials.
"That would make the court safe for
the strict interpretation of the Con-
stitution into the 21st century," he said.
IN THE debate Sunday with Reagan,
Mondale criticized the GOP and

secretary Peter Roussel. He said the

Anoother White House spokesman,
Marlin Fittwater, said, "There's
nothing new in this material."
REAGAN said in a 1980 interview
that he would instruct his doctor, in
tests during his presidency, to take into
account the possibility that he would
become senile.

SAN DIEGO (AP) - Kurt Bevacqua
atoned for a rally-killing blunder in
Game One with a three-run homer,
vaulting San Diego to a 5-3 victory over
the Detroit Tigers last night and a split
of the first two games of the 1984 World
The American League champion
Tigers scored three runs in the first in-
ning off Ed Whitson, but this time,
Padres Manager Dick Williams made
his move before it was too late.
Williams removed Whitson with one out
left in the inning, and relief pitcher An-
dy Hawkins turned giant-killer.
HAWKINS, a part-time starter who
had two complete games during the
season, pitched 5 1-3 innings, gave up
just one hit before he gave way to left-
hander Craig Lefferts, who started the
Hawkins also pitched two scorelessin-
nings in Game One, giving up one hit in
relief of starter Mark Thurmond, who
had struggled all evening before
leaving with the Padres behind 3-2.
Hawkins was nearly flawless again
Wednesday night. He got the last out in
the first and retired 13 in a row before
Kirk Gibson led off the sixth with a
bloop single to left.
Overtwo nights, Hawkins faced 23
straight batters without yielding a hit.

A single by Gibson broke that seven-
inning perfect string.
The Padres, meanwhile, scratched
back with a. run in the first on Graig
Nettles' sacrifice fly and another in the
fourth on a fielder's choice grounder by
Bobby Brown that scored Bevacqua to
make it 3-2.
Then in the fifth the Padres finally
chased Tigers starter Dan Petry, 18-8
during the season, with Bevacqua's
three-run homer. In San Diego's 3-2 loss
in Game One, Bevacqua had run the
Padres out of a potential rally by stum-
bling while trying to stretch a leadoff
double in the seventh inning into a
triple. But Williams kept his fait4iin the
37-year-old designated hitter and
moved him up three notches to sixth in
the batting order.
HIS-HOME run came after a walk to
Nettles and a bad hop single by Terry
Kennedy on a shot that bounced off
second baseman Lou Whitaker's chest.
Bevacqua wound up with three hits in
the game, as did teammates Alan
Wiggins and Garry Templeton.
The victory kept the Padres alive
as the Series moves to Detroit for
games No. 3, 4'and 5 on Friday night,
Saturday and Sunday. No team had
ever lost the first two games at home
and come back to win a best-of-7 series.

Associated Press
San Diego designated hitter Kurt Bevacqua ripped this Dan Petry pitch for a
three-run home in the fifth inning of last night's World Series game. The
Padres evened the series with a 5-3 victory.

University President Harold Shapiro yesterday said he op-
poses a proposal on Ann Arbor's Nov. 6 ballot which would
ban the testing, design, research, and development of
nuclear weapons in the city.
Shapiro said the wording of the "Nuclear Free Ann Arbor"
proposal is vague, and protested its use of a City Council
commission to police weapons work in the city.
"IT'S A BAD law regardless of where you stand on the
issue of nuclear proliferation," Shapiro said at Campus Meet
the Press in the Kuenzel Room of the Michigan Union.
Shapiro said he has not yet determined his position on
nuclear arms control, but conceded that it is "the single most

important problem in front of us."
Research at the University probably would not be affected
by the ban, Shapiro said. The ballot proposal will be made an
amendment to the city charter-it it passes.
EVEN IF IT is applied to the University, Shapiro said that
the ballot question is too vague to determine which research
projects would be prohibited.
The University already prohibits classified research "the
specific purpose of which is the destruction of human life,"
but places no limits on unclassified research.
Shapiro said it is "dangerous to list what kinds of inquiry
are allowed in learning."

* On the Diag,
Nobody leads
sidential race

Nobody is perfect. Nobody will lower
your taxes. Nobody should have his
finger on the button. Nobody under-
stands the economy.
These are just a few of the campaign
slogans shouted on the Diag yesterday
announcing the candidacy of one of the
least talked about presidential conten-
ders: Nobody.
THE "NOBODY for President in
1984" campaign arrived on campus
yesterday headed by Wavy Gravy, best
known as emcee at the Woodstock
music festival fifteen years ago. Vote
for Nobody, Gravy proclaimed, to help
eliminate the practice of "voting for the
lesser of two evils.
"Put none of the above on the
ballot," he said. If no one is elected
perhaps some better candidates will
run, he said.
CAMPAIGN spokespersons said the
"'Nobody for President", tour is actually
an attempt to make students aware of
who might be elected, and the dangers
that the existing candidates Dose.
It was clear that Gravy, at least, did
not think too highly of President
Reagan. "The timing of this campaign
is just right, as Ronny is in (Detroit)"

Gravy said, adding that he backs
Walter Mondale because he is "mor-
tally afraid" of Reagan and the threat
of nuclear war.
"Nobody" is actually a set of chatter
teeth, of the variety found in any
novelty shop. And when it came time
for the teeth to 'speak," all they could
do was muster a few chops. "Nobody
didn't get much sleep last night," said
Gravy in defense of his candidate.
Students were drawn to the Diag in
the afternoon yesterday by the music of
the Unreal Band from Berkely, Cal.,
which played tunes between Gravy's
pleas for Nobody's candidacy.
ONE University professor was less
than amused, however, and asked the
band to stop playing because the music
was interrupting his class. "I'm trying
to get them to turn down the music," he
said, "I'm hoping they'll be
The band agreed. And Gravy, decked
out in a blue suit with white stars, a
black derby hat, and clown makeup,
continued to walk about the steps of the
graduate library blowing soap bubbles
across its facade.

There's somebody else running for President-"Nobody." He's the lesser of two evils, Wavy Gravy says as he rallies
for his candidate on the diag yesterday.

said. More than a third of those polled claimed they could
not have sex as frequently as they would like to, and half of
those attributed the deprivation to work or school, the poll
said. Twice as many women as men complained in the poll
they made love too often. But in reply to another question,
women were three times as numerous as men in saying
they desired the sexual act more often than their partners.
The newspaper did not indicate how many persons had been
polled, but said one-fifth of those questioned refused to an-

day and 20 percent chose Saturday. The newspaper gave no
