Jackson's support
increases from '84

Vice pres. pulls away
on Super Tuesday

Jackson won 96 per cent of the Black
vote and 10 per cent of the white
vote in Super Tuesday's Democratic
primaries, winning greater support
from both races than in his 1984
quest for the presidency, according to
ABC News exit polls.
Four years ago, Walter Mondale
eroded Jackson's strength among
Black voters, and fewer whites were
willing to cast their ballot for the
Black minister and longtime civil
rights activist.
Jackson complained bitterly in
1984 about party rules he said were

stacked against him and diluted his
delegate strength.
But the rules changed for 1988,
and Jackson demonstrated in New
England and the Midwest - and
again in his native South on Tuesday
that he has broadened his base.
Voters polled by ABC after
casting ballots yesterday gave Jack-
son high marks for his ability to
handle foreign affairs, protect the
poor and elderly and hold down

point margin of error in either direc-

George Bush won Republican
primaries from one end of Dixie to

Tuesday landslide to seize control of
the GOP presidential race. Michael

Gore swapped victories in a

Dukakis, who led the Democratic
delegate chase as the evening began,
won at home in Massachusetts and in
Maryland and owned leads in Florida

of the night - as he bid to demon-

Interim University President
Robben Fleming said yesterday he
will soon release for discussion an
anti-discrimination policy aimed at
faculty and staff members - similar
to his proposed student policy.
Fleming said the University's
Board of Regents, who will vote on
the proposed student policy at their
meeting next week, will also discuss
creating a similar policy for faculty
and staff. No formal action,
however, is expected on the non-
student policy
He said he will then ask aides to
draft a proposal, which will be
circulated for comments, before
going to the regents for a vote.
THE FACULTY and staff
policy will be "similar" to the
proposed student policy, with
enforcement being handled through
existing procedures. He would not

Advisory Committee on University
Affairs pledged support f or

only if an equivalent proposal
applying to the faculty was created.
SACUA chair Harris McClamroch

forming such a proposal since before
the group's vote.
Fleming's proposed sanctions on
prohibited behavior solely for
students were detailed in a large,
comprehensive document published
last week in the University Record.

LaGROC members
report phone threats

focuses on budget

Two Lesbian and Gay Rights
Organizing Committee (LaGROC)
members reported to campus security
Monday -that they received two
threatening phone calls early Sunday
morning from the same person.
The caller, a male, said that all
gays should be killed and threatened
to rape one of the two LAGROC
members, they said. The caller
identified himself as a 21-year old,
and said he had been drinking.
The incident is the third
threatening phone call reported by
University students in the past week.
Last Tuesday, a member of the
United Coalition Against Racism
steering committee reported re-
ceiving a phone message from a man
who threatened to rape and kill her.
On Sunday, another student reported*
receiving a similar message.
'THE LAGROC member said
she plans to ask the UCAR member
to let her hear the tape to see if the
calls sound as though they were
made by the same person. Campus
security director Leo Heatley was
unavailable for comment last night.
Residential College sophomore
Jim LaForest said he received the
first of the two calls at about 12:30
a.m. Sunday. He said the caller asked
him several questions about

making obscene and threatening
comments about gays.
"He said he liked to 'do it to gay
girls'... and he wanted to 'get' gay
guys," said the LaGROC member.

and 'get' me... He didn't directly say

When Terry Martin campaigned
for Ann Arbor City Council last
year, her friend Sam tagged along.
Sam wasn't a precinct chair or
campaign manager. Nor did he
provide polling data or work as an
advance person on the campaign.
Sam is Martin's Toy Poodle.
It's not known how much Sam
influenced the campaign, but, Martin
won. So now, when she is not at
home with Sam, Martincan often be
found on the crowded third floor of
City Hall preparing for council
As she discusses issues in the
mayor's city hall office, Martin
seems open and accessible. Ingrid
Sheldon, who served as Martin's

campaign manager, believes
Martin's friendly personality helped
clinch her victory last April by
accentuating her ability to represent
her constituents.
"People feel comfortable talking
to her," Sheldon said.
Although she campaigns with a
poodle, Martin isn't frivolous. When
discussing city issues, she is direct
and to the point. Her political
outlook is reflected in her
conservatively-tailored business
suits. Many say she is the most

council resolutions on non-local issues.
