Prof. says election results

By MARY CHRIS JAKLEVIC
Historical patterns say the
outcome of tomorrow's con-
gressional elections could be bad
news for the Republican Party, but
these patterns may be broken in the
GOP's favor, according to one
University professor.
Michael Traugott, senior study

director of the Center for Political
Studies, said although Republicans
will lose some seats in the U.S.
House of Representatives, it will be
"historically few" foran incumbent
president's party. The president's
party almost always loses
Congressional seats in years
between Presidential elections.
"Usually these elections involve

double-digit losses-in the 20s or
higher. The model this year
suggests a single-digit loss-
around eight or nine
representatives," said Traugott.
TRAUGOTT SAID pres-
idential popularity and public
satisfaction with the economy,
which are basic indicators of race
outcomes, are "historically high"

s a chance to "We won't know about the
an's personal permanency of a realignment until
after Ronald Reagan-in 1988,"
Traugott said.

But Traugott said a 50-50 tie in
the Senate may have an adverse
affect for Vice President Bush if he
were to seek the presidency in
1988.
With an equal number of
democratic and republican Senators

vote in party-line issues. Bush's
increased importance to Republican
causes would force him to spend-
more time in Washington and less
time on the campaign trail.
Traugott said Bush's significance"
in the Senate "probably would
make him somewhat more visible,
but it may not be favorable
publicity. He would be obliged to
take a stand on party positions he
wouldn't otherwise take."

The University will receive a $10 million
grant from the W. K. Kellogg Foundation, half
to support the new Chemical Sciences Building
and half to fund any research projects combining
at least two areas of study, officials announced
Friday.
Five million dollars will be used to establish
a "Presidential Initiatives Fund" that will, under
the direction of University President Harold
Shapiro, encourage interdisciplinary research over
the next five years.
Under the Presidential Initiatives Fund, project
proposals for up to $500,000 will be invited
from University faculty members and groups of

es $10 m1illion
scholars. The Kellogg grant will support 10 to
20 proposals during the five-year term. After the
money runs out, the University will allocate $1
million per year to maintain the program from
its own funds.
"THE PRESIDENTIAL Initiatives Fund
will make the University a real leader in doing
interdisciplinary research. This work will
influence graduate studies and what is taught in
undergrad courses. Also, this will permit
Michigan to help current outstanding faculty
members as well as aiding in the recruitment of
new faculty," said Robert Sparks, president of the
Kellogg Foundation.
"It is through such contributions that we have

grant
been able to launch new initiatives to enhance
our traditional responsibilities to education and
scholarship," said Shapiro, in a prepared
statement.
The second $5 million will be used to help
finance the construction and equipping of the new
chemical sciences facility.
"This is very beneficial... It is the largest single
commitment from a single private source in a
long time. Of the $22 million we need to raise
(to finance the building) from individual
contributions, we have now with this award
raised approximately $10 million," said Jon
Cosovich, University vice president for
development and communications.

IN U.S. SENATE elections,
party line voting tends to be less
reliable than in House races. The
race between the parties for a
majority in the Senate is so close
that Traugott and other experts
cannot confidently predict the
outcome.

campus security to make public
:new policies concerning the use of
force.
Board members agreed that the
University must establish a standard
for protecting free expression. This
includes determining what is an
:appropriate place and time for those
who wish to express opinions, and
what is considered an infringement
upon another's rights.
Members of the University
:community were invited to present
their views and to answer questions
'from the board.
Robert Potter, director of the
;University's communications de-
partment, said that increasing
security is not always effective in
deterring protests.

ws protests
"Risk free protest is probably
ineffective protest," he said.
SACUA Chairman William
Stebbins, a psychology professor,
said SACUA supports the study,
but would like it to be more
specific on matters concerning
security personnel.
Vice President for Student
Services Henry Johnson was more
critical of the study, especially
concerning the rights of
organizations who recruit on
campus and people who are not
directly involved in a protest.
"People doing their own
business should not be annoyed,"
said Johnson, adding that "the
University should not have to
compromise any student's rights."

My son Peter took one look at the bed in his dorm room at Arizona State Uni-
versity and said, "Dad, I need one of your featherbeds to put on top of that hard
mattress:' So when I got back home, I sent him a European Featherbed from The
Company Store. He loved it. His roommates loved it. In fact, everyone loved it.
My European Featherbed is just like a giant body pillow. Place it on top of
your mattress, waterbed, or on the floor, and enjoy its natural warmth and body-
cushioning comfort. It's filled with a blend of hand selected goose and duck
feathers that will ease the lumps of even the most battered dormitory mattress.
You deserve a good night's sleep . . . and my European Featherbed will help
you get it. It's a top-quality featherbed priced for student budgets, and there's
absolutely no risk for you to try it. If you're not completely satisfied with the
European Featherbed, for any reason, call our toll free number and I will
personally send a UPS truck to
your dorm - at my expense - Terry C. Gillette
to pick it up, and I'll send you a ThPresident
