Today's primary is a chance for people in Michigan
to say they want their jobs back, as well as their envi-
ronment and universities, Democratic Presidential
hopeful Jerry Brown said in a speech last nighLt.
"People in Washington have lost touch of what has
happened right here in Michigan, the industrial cen-
ter," Brown said to a crowd of more than 1,750 at
Michigan Theater. "This election is about how dedi-
cated the people of Michigan are to keeping their jobs
and how separate people like Tsongas, Clinton, and
Bush are to what is happening here."
Brown stressed the need for a rebirth of American
thinking and the importance of strengthening educa-
"We can do almost anything. There is not resis-
tance, only stagnation in Washington," Brown said.
"We'll tell (Bush) this country is about life, liberty,
and actually pursuing happiness."
LSA junior Chris Terry said Brown's issue-focused
campaign attracted him to the speech.
"I'm a Buchanan supporter and (Brown's) the only
Democrat I'm willing to listen to because he's not

Michigan Student Assembly candidates met last
night to go over last-minute campaign details and pick
the order they would appear on the ballot.
The Michigan Moose Party will remain on the ballot
although the presidential and vice presidential
candidates resigned last week.
LSA junior Carrie Pittman, election director for
MSA, said she hopes the election runs as smoothly as
last year and outlined strategies MSA is using to
increase voter turnout this year.
"We've really been trying to publicize it," Pittman
said. "One thing we've been trying to do is to have all
the poll site hours covered by making sure there are
enough workers there. This will increase accessibility to
the poll sites and make voting easier for the students."
Pittman also said the decision to overturn the rule
limiting the time candidates can campaign before the
election will also help to publicize MSA more.

70 percent, said Larry Durst, Busi-

One part of the consolidation has
