Harkin supporters are

off to
by Laura Adderley

New Hampshire

*I

I

A group of about 14 students and,
community members jumped on the
political bandwagon last night -
literally - and began the sixteen-
hour drive to New Hampshire to of-
fer their support to Iowa Sen. Tom
Harkin's presidential campaign.
Democratic community member
Dave DeVarti has been organizing
the transportation of Harkin support-
ers to New Hampshire for long
weekends since the beginning of
January.
Markin is third in the latest polls
in 'New Hampshire, trailing former
Massachusetts Governor Paul
Tsongas and Arkansas Sen. Bill

Clinton. According to the volun-
teers, Harkin's performance in New
Hampshire will be critical to his
success in winning the Democratic
nomination.
Volunteers cited Harkin's support
of abortion rights, his desire to de-
crease national defense funding dras-
tically and his belief in a govern-
ment-centered health plan as the
main reasons for supporting his
campaign.
Klaus Rathfelder said he liked
Harkin because of his concern for his
constituents. "He is the only one
that seems to care about the people,"
Rathfelder said.
University alumni Rob Earle, a

van driver for the weekend, said he
believes it is important to get in-
volved in the primaries, and that go-
ing to New Hampshire provides an
opportunity to "have an effect on the
actual election."
LSA senior Pam Shifman, who
has worked for the Michigan
Abortion Rights Action League, said
that she believes Harkin is the only
candidate who has consistently been
pro-choice throughout his career.
"It's important for people to be
involved in the political process as
much as possible - I think it's re-
ally important to get everyone to
vote," she said.

who are not willing to fight, kill,
and maybe die for their country -
riglt or wrong.
"'The decision not to be a resister

and the related subsequent decisions
were the most difficult of my life."
Clinton ultimately left ROTC
and made himself eligible for the
draft, but the statements made in the]
letter could do irreparable harm to+
the campaign of a man who had+
counted on southern states for the
base of his support. Polls in recent
years have shown that southern vot-j

ers are very supportive of the armed
services.

Nightly polls conducted by The _
Boston Globe have shown a 9-point
decline for Clinton over the last five
days, from 28 percent to 19 percent, Califoi
while former Mass. Sen. Paul Rescuers b
Tsongas has seen a similar increase River yestei

and downs of managing a city sur-
rounding a major university. One
advantage is state reimbursement
for providing fire department ser-
vices to the University. However, of
the $1.4 million promised from the
state for these services, only about
$620,000 will be appropriated to
the city this year.
"We have the challenge and ben-
efit of being a university commu-
nity," Brater said. "But 55 percent

of the property in Ann Arbor is not
taxable. It is publicly owned prop-
erty in the city."
Mayor Brater also spoke about
the United States Conference of
Mayors she attended in Washington,
D.C., last month, where she learned
about federal money which will be
made available to communities
around the nation.
"$50 million has been projected
to be earmarked to the Ann Arbor
area, and I want to make sure Ann
Arbor gets that money," Brater
said.
Brater said that $75 million

worth of public works projects
with plans to improve Ann Arbor's
infrastructure have already been
submitted to Washington.

Barbara Sprague said the program
was kind of sobering.

those challenges," Sprague said.
The Ann Arbor City Council
will vote on next year's budget on
April 20th.

1992 Landes Prize

$1,000.00

Undergraduate students currently registered in the Engineering College are
eligible to compete for the George M. Landes Prize ($1,000.00). This is an
award presented annually to an undergraduate student who demonstrates
excellence of both technical work and the presentation of that work in written
or graphic form. The prize is presented in memory of George M. Landes, a
1977 graduate of the Mechanical Engineering Department and a Ford Motor
Company engineer who was killed in an automobile accident in 1981.

Olympics or caused tension within
the competition, most students
said it wasn't a factor. If anything,
they thought it was more of a fac-
tor in the past than now.
"I don't think the Olympics is
about politics that much," Balmer
said. "The Olympics is about com-
petition. It's a good way to get peo-
ple together without the concerns
of the real world."
"I tend to think when athletes
go to the Olympics they're think-
ing about their sport," Goff said.
"I think there's a lot more good-
will between athletes than be-
tween politicians."
"In the past it was, but not
now," Schaeffer said. "With Com-
munism coming down, there's not
as much animosity between us and
Russia."
Students had differing opinions
about whether Russia's perfor-
mance would suffer in light of the
current political situation there.
"I know that Russia definitely
has less financial resources," Jerry
Post, an LSA junior said. "You

have a certain level of athletes and
from there it's the amount of
money you can pour into them for
things like coaches and facilities."
"It's probably not so much ef-
fecting them at this point," Peters
said. "Physically-wise athletes are
still in good standing because it
just happened."

Most students said that ten-
sions between Japan and the United
States would not play a big role in
the competition because the
Japanese are not usually
formidable opponents.
"I don't think Japan competes
well," Teichholz said. "They prob-
ably make the best bobsleds, but
that's about it."

To enter, a student must submit a single piece of technical work. This
presentation - written, graphic, or some combination of communication
media - can be a technical article, a design report, a piece of technical
journalism, or any other presentation of technical work. Submissions will be
evaluated for both their technical and communication skill. They should be of
professional quality, suitable for use in industry or for publication exactly as
submitted.
Students interested in entering should pick up detailed instructions from the
Technical Communication Program office, 111 TIDAL. Three copies of the
submission are due at that same office by 4:30pm on Monday, March 2, 1992.

the U.S. Forest Service is embarking
on a comprehensive sustainable
management program.
"Right now we are looking at

ways of extracting Taxol other than
the bark," said Nancy Terry, a U.S.
Forest Service official. "We need to
work on how to harvest the yew, yet
make sure it proliferates."
Terry said the efforts of the U.S.
Forest Service and the various hos-
pitals will double the number of
cancer patients who will be treated
with Taxol.
"This is all new technology and
very exciting stuff," she said.
