Lousma blames
lack of funds
for election loss

By THOMAS HRACH
with wire leports
Exit polls declared Democrat Carl
Levin the clear winner in Michigan's
senate race when voting ended
Tuesday. But Republican challenger
Jack Lousma waited through the night
for returns from the city of Detroit
before he conceded the contest yester-
day morning.
The band of Lousma supporters who
gathered at the Ann Arbor Sheraton Inn
on election night saw their candidate
briefly. He made only two appearances
before the crowd. Lousma insisted that
he "will not concede anything on
guesswork" which is what he considers
the exit polling.
INSTEAD, Lousma decided to travel
to Dearborn to thank his supporters and
promised he would return to give the
Ann Arbor loyalists the final word on
his campaign. But early yesterday
morning Lousma decided to wait on the
hunch that his slim lead at the time
would hold up after the ballots from
Detroit had been counted.
Lousma called it quits yesterday at a
9 a.m. news conference in the hotel near
Briarwood.
"Me and the space shuttle had
trouble getting off the ground this mor-
ning," said Lousma, referring to the
space shuttle Discovery's aborted lift-
off yesterday. "But there will be
another day for the both of us," he said.
LEVIN, A freshman senator from
Detroit, had 1,924,484 or 53 percent, to
1,731,424 or 47 percent for Lousma, a
former astronaut.
Levin told a morning-after news con-
ference in Detroit that he was not sur-
prised by his performance due to
Reagan's strong showing in the state.
"I knew it would be a hard-fought
race if the President did well," he said.

"I always knew the polls were way off
- the exit polls were way off."
"HUNDREDS of thousands of people
had to split their ticket for me. That
shows people want Michigan to be
represented - they don't want a
senator that's in the President's
pocket," Levin said.
Lousma thanked his supporters and
family, and had few harsh words for his
opponent. The native Ann Arbor
resident refused to cite any errors on
the part of his campaign staff, instead
blaming the lack of funds for the failure
to get his message out to the voters of
Michigan.
"This was a .close race, and with
enough financial resources we would
have won it," Lousma said.
"I DIDN'T COME into this campaign
with an unlimited bankroll," Lousma
said. "The (Reagan) coattail effect
would have worked if we had had more
money."
According to the candidate his cam-
paign finished with a $10,000 to $20,000
debt. Lousma's financial difficulties
began when Levin raised $2.1 million
this year, compared with $1.3 million
for Lousma.
DURING THE campaign, Lousma
was stung by a Levin commercial that
included a film clip of him telling a
Japanese audience that he had a
Toyota.
Lousma yesterday commented one
last time on that television commercial.
"Certainly voters were mislead by
the false advertisement. It was a cheap
shot because it was my son's car," said
Lousma. "I was in the race the whole
way, but in the end finances were the
problem."
Lousma refused to speculate on what
his future plans would entail. He
neither confirmed nor denied he would
seek another office, most specifically
the governor's seat in 1986.

City voters relieved at Proposal C's defeat

By GREGORY HUTTON
with wire reports
University officials are breathing a sigh of relief af-
ter state Proposal C was defeated Tuesday by a
margin of 60-40 percent.
The proposal would have rolled back state taxes to
their Dec. 1981 levels and could have forced the
University to hike tuition as much as 21 percent.
ANN ARBOR voters rejected the proposal by the
wide margin of 36,936 to 9,669.
Keith Molin, assistant to the vice-president and
hirector of capital projects, said that the ad-
ministration was delighted with the outcome, and
that it was truly an expression of rejection for the

proposal.
"We are relieved at the defeat of Proposal C.. . had
it passed we would have had to do one of two things -
either reduce the curriculum of some schools or raise
tuition," said Molin.
Molin said that the other half of the Proposal which
requires four-fifths of the legislative vote for all fur-
ther tax increases, would lead to "anarchy". The
passage of Proposal C could have slashed as much as
$38 million from the $170 million of state support the
University receives this year, officials said.
"WE THINK (the defeat) is not only good for the
people of Michigan, but particularly the students of
the University," said Mark Williams, a spokesperson

for the Michigan Student Assembly. "We were a little
worried at the 17 percent undecided vote, but we ex-
pected the Proposal to go down," he said.
The University community was praised Tuesday
night by Promote Michigan, the coalition against the
passage of Proposal C, for helping to contribute funds
for the campaign drive. Promote Michigan raised a
total of $1 million toward its successful campaign.
"The help that the University gave us as far as
communicating to the alumni and community about
the confusing and chaotic nature of Proposal C was
wonderful," said Don Stypula, assistant financial
director of Promote Michigan. "We cannot thank the
University enough," he added.

Projections sway Oregon turnout

NEW YORK (AP) - A significant number of registered
voters in Oregon were discouraged from voting after hearing
television reports of Ronald Reagan's landslide victory, but
the network projections did not cause people already at the
polls to leave the lines, a researcher said yesterday.
Dr. William Adams, professor of administration at George
Washington University, called the impact on voter turnout
"less than trivial. In our survey, we definitely encountered a
number of people who said that projections had a decisive in-
fluence on their decision not to vote."
Rep. Tim Wirth (D-Colo.), chairman of the House
'telecommunications subcommittee that has been monitoring
the networks' election practices, said in his district "news of

the network projections spread like wildfire. Countless
voters left the lines..."
The networks, meanwhile, maintain that there is no con-
clusive evidence that projections affect turnout. "We don't
agree that there is a depression," said ABC News Vice
President David Burke.
Even so, ABC said it was sensitive to those concerns and
chose not to use its available exit-polling information to make
any election characterizations before the network deter-
mined that there were enough electoral votes from states
where the polls had closed to actually declare Reagan's vic-
tory.
