Mondale's state campaign manager speaks at 'U'

By MELISSA BIRKS
Ellen Globakar, who has been
working on political campaigns since
age 16, looked back yesterday on the
defeats and the victories her can
didates have experienced over the
years, advising students never to un
derestimate the value of their politica
contributions.
Speaking before political science
Prof. Greg Markus' contemporary
issues in politics class, Globakar told
the 150 students that both politica
parties are "starving for people who
will work hard."
BUT IN order to prove yourself to
the party bigwigs, Globakar said,
campaigner must build a reputatio
based on party loyalty and com
petence.
"The reputation of who you work fo
and how you work goes with you fo
the rest bf your life," the former stat
Mondale/Ferraro A campaign coon

* dinator said.
n "If you work for nothing, that's
e what you'll get," warned Globakar.
e "But if you work hard and make your-
- self invaluable, the candidates will
e find some way to pay you."
- AS COORDINATOR of Gov. James
1 Blanchard's 1986 re-election cam-
paign, Globaker said her strategy will
e involve sounding the theme of
y' Michigan as "the come-back state"
d and emphasizing the steps Blanchard
d has taken to raise thq state out of debt
o for the first time since 1975.
Although Blanchard is basking in a
70-point public favorability rating "(on
a a 100-point scale), Globakar said she
n expects strong opposition from anti-
tax constituents.
Yet this doesn't faze Globakar. "It's
r interesting because the strongest anti-
r tax statements actually act favorably
e on the campaign. "I've never seen
r- that happen before."

HOWEVER, Globakar is less op-
timistic when she speaks of her efforts
to elect democrats Walter Mondale
and Geraldine Ferraro to the top posts
in the country.
"I believe Walter Mondale would
have made a good president. But he
had no theme. At the end, they tried a
lot of things: They tried fundamen-
talism, religion, taxes . . . but they
couldn't get anything."
Although she stressed the impor-
tance of a strong campaign theme and
image, Globakar said she stuck it out
until the end with Mondale because
she believed he was the better person
for the office.
"I DON'T think you should base
who you work for by their image," she
said.
Globakar said Mondale's fatal flaw
was he failed to counter the charge
that he was the prisoner of special in-
terest groups.

"At one of the debates, Hart asked
Mondale if he ever disagreed with
labor," Globakar recalled. "The fact
that he did not repsond was
devastating to the campaign."
THE CLASS agreed with her
assessment. When she asked them if
they believed Mondale had been a tool
of the special interests, a majority of
the students raised their hands.
Candidates of the future will make
sure to disassociate themselves from
special interest groups in order to
prove an all-around public appeal, she
said.
Globakar called the vice-1
presidential nomination of Geraldinei
Ferraro "a mixed blessing."
"In terms of running, it was great.
We had more workers than we knew
what to do with. But when you have ai
woman running, they hold you to dif-
ferent standards. There are higher
expectations."

Globakar is a true veteran
Democratic campaigner. She started
out working on George McGovern's
presidential campaign in 1968 and

moved on to campaign for
congressmen Birch Bayh and Morris
Udall in 1976, and then Blanchard in
1982.

City may
divest stocks

years ago."
Alan Burns, a trustee and city con-
troller, conceded that the divestment
issue has been before the board for
nearly three years.
But Hunter and Mayor Ed Pierce
put extra pressure on the board when
it passed its directive, threatening to
remove the five trustees who are ap-
pointed by City Council unless
divestment begins.

Medical researchers testify against state pet bill

(Continued from Page 1'
for the state Humane Society.
Liska said that researchers would
find substitutes to the use of dogs and
cats. She said researchers in England
have begun using placentas discarded
after childbirth to teach
microsurgery.
BUT GEORGE Zuidema, the
University's vice provost for medical
affairs and professor of surgery at the
medical school, responded afterwards
that a University review board
already must approve any use of an
animal in research.
Zuidema said that "whenever
possible, we use substitutes. We don't
use experimental animals unless it is
necessary." He added that "medical
research in England has slowed ap-
preciably" since the enactment of
laws deterring the use of animal
research.
Responding to charges that dogs
and cats are needlessly killed in
research, Richard Malvin, professor

of physiology at the University's
medical school and a member of the
Michigan Society of Medical Resear-
ch, said the only animals used are
those which face euthanasia in the
shelter.
MALVIN POINTED out that if the
bill is passed, breeders must raise
about 10,000 more dogs and cats
specifically for research. "This is a
most tragic waste of resources," he
said.
Malvin also said most Michigan
citizens are opposed to such a bill.
Citing a recent survey by the Univer-
sity's Institute of Social Research,
Malvin said less than 30 percent sur-
veyed were 'opposed to using animals
for research. In addition, 80 percent of
those who opposed animal research
said they support the use of animals if
they were to be killed in shelters
anyway.
Sen. Harry De Masco (R-Battle
Creek), another of the bill's sponsors,
asked the researchers about

allegations that animals are
mistreated before being used in ex-
periments.
Dr. Henry Nadler, dean of Wayne
State University's medical school,
responded that universities must
follow federal guidelines on animal
care and face annual inspections.
HOWEVER, Liska said after the
hearing that she had documented
evidence of mistreatment by univer-
sities. She refused to elaborate,
saying only that she would testify
about them next week. '
The committee heard only opponen-
ts of the bill yesterday, but will hear

from the bill's proponents, including
Liska, next Wednesday. Liska said
there would be a rally on the state
Capitol steps beforehand.
Cantlon also offered an alternative
to the bill: to tatoo dogs and cats so
that if they become lost they can be
identified and returned to their
owners.
Liska, however, said she opposed
tatooing for several reasons. She said
most people do not want to "mutilate"
their animals with tatoos; it would
only create a costly bureaucracy and
most pets are unclaimed, not because
they can be identified, but because
they are unwanted by their owners.

inadequate financial aid programs
and support services.
"Although many ethnic groups are
here, this environment, to a degree, is
centered around mainstream culture,
mainstream values," agreed Marvin
Woods, president of the Black Student
Union.

Linzie made several recommen-
dations, among them that:
* University President Harold
Shapiro establish a University-wide
commission on minority enrollment
first proposed in 1983;
* The University centralize support
services;
* The University prioritize the
promotion of minority faculty.

3 Soviets freed in Beirut

BEIRUT, Lebanon (AP) -Three of
the four Soviet embassy staffers kid-
napped by gunmen 30 days ago were
freed last night in Moslem West
Beirut, Soviet and leftist militia of-
ficials said.
The bullet-riddled body of the fourth
Soviet was found Sept. 30 on a garbage
dump in South Beirut, two days after
the group's abduction by members of
the hitherto unknown Islamic
Liberaton Organization.
"They're all free and in relatively
good condition," said a Soviet em-
bassy spokesman who declined to be

identified. He did not elaborate on
their condition.
The kidnappers said in a statement
delivered to Western news agencies
here that it freed press attache Oleg
Spirin, commercial attache Valery
Mirikov and embassy physician
Nikolai Sversky "to prove our good in-
tentions."
The statement by the Islamic
Liberation Organization, believed to
be made up of Sunni Moslem fun-
damentalists, made no mention of the
slain Soviet, 32-year-old consular
secretary Arkady Katkov.
