Dukakis'

mother

visits Ann Arbor

BY AMY KOCH
Euterpe Dukakis, the mother of presidential
candidate Michael Dukakis, lauded her son's "family-
oriented" values to residents of Miller Manor's senior
center yesterday during a campaign swing through Ann
'Arbor.
Mrs. Dukakis spoke of her immigrant background
and its influence on her son. Coming from Greece at
age nine, Mrs. Dukakis and her family found "life here
good." With her brothers working in a shoe factory and
struggling for education, Mrs. Dukakis feels her
eventual financial success embodies the meaning of

"Democratic opportunity."
After highlighting the integrity and strong character
of the Dukakis family, Mrs. Dukakis introduced the
essence of her visit: her son.
"MIKE KNOWS the needs of senior citizens. He
cares about housing, nutrition, and social security. He
wants nurses to come to seniors' houses to help with
cooking, errands, or just to hold hands with. He wants
to address the frightening question 'what will happen to
me when I can't take care of myself?"'
Prior to Mrs. Dukakis' entrance, the crowd was
immersed in political discussions of their own. Many

expressed fears of both Bush's determination to squelch
social security benefits as well as his seeming lack of
concern for America's elderly.
The Dukakis headquarters in Ann Arbor was
responsible for bringing Mrs. Dukakis to Miller
Manor. Christine Montague, Deputy Director for the
Second Congressional District feels Mrs.Dukakis'
"mini" campaign for her son is "great" because she is
"correcting all the lies being spread about him."
Steve Levy, coordinator of the Ann Arbor office for
Dukakis, feels that Mrs. Dukakis' speeches to the
elderly are critical since the campaign is "trying to
reach all segments of the community with relevant

issues.".
MILLER MANOR, a federally subsidized
housing development for low income senior citizens
and the handicapped, is a typical target for Mrs.
Dukakis' speeches. With a major thrust of Dukakis'
campaign aimed at alleviating the elderly's housing,
medical, and social security dilemmas, Mrs. Dukakis is
addressing older Americans around the U.S. to assure
these people of her son's intentions.
And, in closing, Mrs. Dukakis did not hesitate to
affirm that "behind every great man, there is a woman
- me."

rape gr
BY LAURA COUNTS
A group of women who spray
painted "A woman was raped here" at
about 300 locations around Ann Ar-
bor last week suspects the quick re-
moval of the graffiti may be a con-
gerted effort by the University to ig-
nore the issue of rape.
"The University immediately ef-
faced our signs so that the question
could not continue to be so boldly
raised," said one of the painters, who
asked not to be identified for fear of
prosecution. Although the fine for
defacing property varies from case to
case, the city attorney's office said
that the maximum penalty is 90
days imprisonment or a $100 fine.
The painting - done by about 70
concerned women who organized the
effort for five months -- was in-
tended to heighten community
awareness of the under-reporting of
sexual assault, said a spokesperson
for the unnamed group.
But David Pope, a plant opera-
tions employee in charge of graffiti

affiti
removal, said the removal was not a
consciously aimed at this specific
graffiti.
"We don't decide if it's right or
wrong, we just remove it," said
Pope.
No direct action has been taken
by the city to remove the signs be-
cause it is not against the city code
to write on Ann Arbor sidewalks,
said an employee of the city Trans-
portation Department.
Property owners are responsible
for the sidewalk in front of their
property. The city only responds if
there'is a complaint, and then usu-
ally paints over the offending graf-
fiti.
Virtually all of the rape sites were
taken from the monthly crime maps
published in the Ann Arbor Observer
over the past three years. About ten
sites were from unreported rapes. A
similar campaign in 1980 met with
more publicity and some painting
remained for two years, said
organizers.

BY MICHAEL LUSTIG
The least amount of government
is the best government.
That's the basic philosophy of
the Libertarian Party, based upon the
ideas of Thomas Jefferson. And Dick
Jacobs, the party's candidate for the
U.S. Senate, elaborated on it last
night in a visit to the University.
Jacobs, making his sixth cam-
paign stop in the day, said Libertari-
ans want to shift government ser-
vices to the private sector because
"competition in the private sector
can give us better services at lower
costs."
About 15 people came to in An-
gell Hall to hear Jacobs' speech.
This would mean, he said, elimi-
nating large portions of government
- including the Postal Service,
civil service, and the welfare system.
The goal of this is to reduce the fed-
eral budget by $500 billion, Jacobs
JESSICA GREENE/Doily said.
Libertarian Party candidate for the Michigan He also wants a balanced budget

of less government last night. line-item veto. If elected, Jacobs'

would sponsor legislation to reduce
all Congressional salaries by 20
percent and freeze salaries until the
budget is balanced.
He added that he would voluntar-
ily take the pay cut if elected.
He also favors legalizing drugs. "I
don't advocate it or condone it, but
that's your choice," he said. Jacobs
said banning certain drugs leads to
crime, and pointed to Prohibition in
the 1920s as an example.
Libertarians are opposed to abor-
tion, Jacobs said, because they con-
sider it a form of violence. But, he
said, he would permit it in a case of
rape or incest because those are also
violent acts.
Jacobs, a businessperson from
Holland, Michigan, ran for governor
in 1982. The Libertarian Party,
founded in 1972, has 47 candidates
in Michigan, and its leader, Ron
Paul, a Texas physician who served
in Congress as a Republican repre-
sentative for eight years, is on the
ballot as a presidential candidate in
46 states.

battery against Ann Arbor Police
Officer Richard Blake.
At one point during the protest,
Blake had flipped and thrown Stein-
graber to the ground, where she
landed head first and was later taken
to the hospital. Steingraber and a
crowd of protesters were trying to
prevent an unmarked government car
from leaving the area. The car was
carrying Hudson, whom the police
had just arrested.
Blake was not available for com-
ment yesterday.
Hudson, a Daily opinion page

staff writer, is charged with disturb-
ing the peace andassaulting a police
officer. Hudson's alleged victim is
not known. Michael Fischer, a Daily
arts staff writer, is being charged
only with disturbing the peace.
Disturbing the peace is a simple
misdemeanor carrying a maximum
penalty of 90 days in jail and/or
$100 fine. Assault and battery of a
police officer is a misdemeanor car-
rying a maximum penalty of two
years in prison and/or $1,000 fine.
Assistant Public Safety Director
Robert . Pifer initially arrested
Southworth last Thursday for
"assault on a police officer who was
administering first aid (to Stein-
graber)," Pifer said.
