Blanchard leads Lucas in poll
with wire reports
With less than eight weeks before the
state's general election, Gov. James
Blanchard leads Republican candidate
William Lucas by a substantial margin,
according to a poll published last week.
Sentiments among University students
seem to coincide with poll results. Most
students interviewed said they support
Blanchard, stating their satisfaction with
Michigan's economic recovery under
"I feel he's done a really good job of
turning the state around," said second-year
pharmacy student Carrie Coselman. "We
were in bad shape when he came into office."
THE POLL, conducted Sept. 4 through Sept.
9 by the Gordon S. Black Corp. of Rochester,
N.Y. for the Detroit News, found that of the 806
registered voters polled, 55 percent plan to vote
for Blanchard, 27 percent back Lucas, and 18
percent are undecided.
Black said that although he expected Lucas
to gain, it would take a major scandal
involving the governor for Lucas to win the
Lucas, the Wayne County executive who
switched from the Democratic Party to the
Republican Party last year, is hoping to
become the nation's first elected black
governor. Blanchard is seeking his second
BLANCHARD has apparently gained the
most support by balancing the budget. "He's
done a fantastic job with the economic
recovery. People are really feeling better about
the state," said LSA senior Mike Nachman.
Nachman said the economic recovery is the
only issue that is bound to have any effect on
LSA senior Jeff Stiegman said he would
rather vote for Blanchard, who has proven
himself as governor, than for Lucas, whom he
doesn't know. "He has done a pretty fair job in
the last few years and I have no idea what
Lucas is going to do," Stiegman said. "I
wasn't real thrilled with his tax increases
when he first got into office, but the results were
good and they're rolled back now."
LSA junior Nick Metzger of Detroit said he
will vote for Blanchard in the Nov. 4 elections,
not because of Michigan's balanced budget, but
for Blanchard's stance on education
WHILE LUCAS is willing to cut funding
for schools, Blanchard is not, he said. "I like
Lucas. He seems like he would be a good
governor. He has some good ideas, fresh
ideas. But I'm barely surviving with tuition as
it is and he's not going to help me any,
especially with Reagan in office," Metzger
Metzger said Blanchard has done a good
job with economic recovery, "but if I want to get
a job in Michigan, I have to pay half my salary
in taxes, which is ridiculous. It's getting hard
to live in this state."
Students rush through
By KERRY DUFF
Free food, beer, parties, life-
long friendships, and dates with
sorority women are up for grabs
this week, as fraternities throw
open their doors for fall rush.
Last night approximately 600
men began the week-long process
of rushing, or visiting some of the
University's 42 fraternity houses.
Rush gives the rushees a
chance to see where they'd feel
most comfortable and fraternity
members a chance to choose new
requirement for acceptance into a
fraternity is fitting in with the the
members. But many men think
that a fraternity won't accept them
unless they fit the its image.
Denny Kavanaugh, president
of the Inter-Fraternity Council,
which governs most campus
fraternities, said members are
not looking to perpetuate house
stereotypes. Instead, they want

The National Security Agency's
Professional Qualification Test
Don't even think of limiting your employ-
ment options...because we wouldn't. At the
National Security Agency, we've devised a Pro-
fessional Qualification TEST (PQT) that might
prove just how perfect you'd be for an unheard
of challenge-an NSA career.
Your job would be important to our job. We
analyze foreign communications. We safeguard
this nation's vital communications. We secure
government computer systems. All using
tomorrow's state-of-the-art technologies. All
for a very good cause: America's National
The PQT is your first step toward qualifying
for one of the National Security Agency's
career fields. If test results indicate good poten-
tial, an NSA representative will be in touch to
set up an interview. You'll have the chance,
then, to explore the particulars of oppor-
tunities in data systems, information science,
language, communications and management.
So do something smart for yourself. Pick up
the PQT bulletin at your placement office. Or
write to NSA for a copy, soon. Registration is
free, but forms must be received no later than
October 10th.'Test date? Saturday, October 25th.
If you're a graduate with a Bachelor's or
Master's degree in Electrical/Electronic/Com-

someone who will add to the

Many fraternity presidents
echoed Kavanaugh's views. Dan
Paige, president of Sigma Chi,
said his fraternity was looking
for people who were confident and
TOM FRANKS, president of
Phi Sigma Kappa, said that
although the eight members of his
fraternity are diverse, it is
important for rushees to fit in with
fraternity members' attitudes
about rush differ from those of
sorority members. He said
fraternity rush is more relaxed
and men visit only houses they
choose to visit, while women are
required to visit every sorority
house. Fraternities also hold
rush twice a year, while would-be
sorority members often can rush
only in the fall, making the
experience more pressured.
Years ago men had to be
invited to rush a fraternity in a
closed and secretive manner.
Today, men don't need an
invitation and they can drop out of
the process at any time.
ONE WAY fraternities induce
rushees to visit their house is by
throwing theme' parties. Although
rushees chose a fraternity on the
basis of the parties they attend,
many men admit they'd like to
join a fraternity with a good
LSA freshman Stuart Beraha
said that reputation is very
influential, because "I could be
stigmitized for joining a frat that
has a particular reputation."
Chris Andriostak, also a
freshman, said that while
reputation is important, he would
base his choices on " location,
people, and beer."
A spokesman for the Inter-
Fraternity Council said he
expects the number of rushees to
increase 2 percent from last year.

MOSCOW - In his first news conference since he was freed from a
Soviet prison, Nicholas Daniloff spoke yesterday of suffering "mental
torture" during his 13 days of interrogation, and warned reporter '

Lefortovo Prison, but he said the loneliness and the 30 hours of in-

Bomb kills 5 in Seoul airport
SEOUL, South Korea - A powerful explosive device blasted the
crowded terminal building at Seoul's Kimpo International Airport
yesterday, killing five Koreans and injuring 19, police said.
Police said 13 victims were seriously hurt. Local news media accounts
said as many as 35 people were injured in the air terminal, the main
arrival point for the Asian Games set to open next Saturday.
A statement issued by Kang Min-chang, director of South Korea's
national police, pointed an accusing finger at communist North Korea,
charging North Korea with planning "impure, barbaric, and wicked
schemes aimed at disrupting the successful hosting of the games."
South Korea has feared that North Korea or others might try to mar the
games-and this nation's image as host. North Korea refused to take part
in the games, saying they were one more event aimed at perpetuating the
division of the Korean peninsula.
17 killed in Greek earthquake
KALAMATA, Greece - Rescuers pulled seven bodies yeaterday from
the rubble of an apartment building toppled by a powerful earthquake in
this southern port city, raising the toll to at least 17 people killed and more
than 300 injured.
A Defense Ministry spokesman said more than 100 people were
hospitalized after Saturday's quake, and 200 more were treated for cuts
and puncture wounds. Rescue crews pulled out 31 people alive from
damaged buildings, but more bodies were believed buried under rubble,
said the spokesman, who demanded anonymity.
The quake, measuring 6.2 on the Richter scale, rolled through the
mountainous Messenia region, 180 miles southwest of Athens, at 8:24
The tremor destroyed all but three of 120 homes in the village of
Elaiochori, 12%/2 miles east of Kalamata. The bodies of three villagers
were found beneath the rubble, the ministi-y said.
Seven bodies were found elsewhere, including two men crushed in a
car when a building toppled over. Neither police nor hospitals have issued
an official list of those killed.
Police reinforce seat belt law
DETROIT - State police have stepped-up enforcement of Michigan's
mandatory seat belt law because of declining safety belt use among
motorists since the law took effect more than a year ago, officials said.
A draft of a University of Michigan research report to be released
tomorrow says 45 percent of Michigan residentsare complying with the
seat-belt law, compared with 55 percent in July 1985 when the law took ef-
fect. The law requires drivers and front-seat passengers to buckle up.
New statewide police training also is in the works because local police
officers aren't strictly enforcing the law, said Judy Coleman, chief of
community education for the state police Office of Highway Safety Plan-
State police have increased seat-belt enforcement since Memorial Day,
said state police traffic analyst Judy McNitt. She said troopers issued
17,160 tickets to adults and 164 to juveniles in the first seven months of
1986 for seat-belt violations.
Grand jury investigates
Detroit motorcycle gang
DETROIT - A federal grand jury here is investigating allegations that
members of a Detroit-based motorcycle club with chapters in about 25.
states engaged in gun smuggling,drug trafficking and contract murders,
a newspaper report said.
The Lansing State Journal reported yesterday in a copyright story that
indictments are expected in early 1987 in the grand jury investigation of
the Detroit Highwaymen motorcycle club.
Special agents from the U.S. Treasury Department's Alcohol, Tobacco,
and Firearms Division and the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration
have covertly investigated the gang during the past year, said Detroit
Police Sgt. Charles Schatzberg.
For about two months, Assistant U.S. Attorney Jeffrey Foran has been
providing background material on the motorcycle club to the grand
jurors and will subpoena several witnesses, including gang members,
Schatzberg and federal agents involved in the investigation said.
"With this investigation we're hoping to wipe out their entire operation'
in Detroit and hopefully make a dent in their national criminal
operation," said a ATF special agent, who requested anonymity.
