Duke on ballot

by state GOP

LANSING, Mich. (AP) - The
Michigan Republican Party can't
keep former Ku Klux Klan leader
David Duke off the GOP presiden-
tial primary ballot, Attorney Gen-
eral Frank Kelley said in an opinion
Kelley's opinion carries the
weight of law unless overturned in
He said Duke had met the legal
requirements to make the ballot and
Secretary of State Richard Austin
couldn't keep him off, despite the
party wishes.
. As required by state law, Austin
issued on Dec. 13 a list of those
"generally advocated" by the
national media as candidates.
Austin, who is Black, included
Duke on that list. Duke then filed an
affidavit with Austin's office say-
ing he was a candidate and wanted to
be on the ballot. Kelley said by
meeting those two requirements,
Duke legally was entitled to a spot
on the ballot.
"That is the statutory test, not
whether a political party wants an
individual on its presidential pri-
mary ballot or whether a political
party believes an individual shares
its beliefs and convictions," Kelley
He listened to grim accounts of
lost jobs in the computer industry,
of a crash in real estate values, of a
state economy down 50,000 jobs
since 1989 and likely to lose 10,000
to 15,000 more in 1992.
"The economy as we see it today
is still in a free fall," said Dan.
Ayers, the town manager of
Bush acknowledged it's so:
"I've known the economy is in
free fall. I hope I've known it.
Maybe I haven't conveyed it as well
as I should."
He said he will propose real an-
swers for long-term growth. He in-
sisted the administration has sought

Officials for the state GOP
refused to comment on Kelley's
opinion at this time.
A spokesperson for Duke's cam-
paign didn't immediately return a
telephone call seeking comment.
President Bush and former presi-
dential adviser and columnist
Patrick Buchanan also are on the
GOP ballot for Michigan's March
17 primary.
In a related opinion, Kelley also
told Austin that he and local elec-
tions officials would have to fol-
low the Michigan Democratic
Party's rule on same-day declaration
of party preference for the primary.
State law requires voters to de-
clare their preference at least 30
days before the primary.
However, the state party decided
to change its rules and allow voters
to do that on Election Day if they
choose. Those who have already de-
clared as Republicans wouldn't be
able to switch on Election Day,
under the Democratic rule.
Kelley said since the Democratic
rule applies to all individuals, it
prevails and Austin and local
elections officials must follow it.
sound programs for three years,
only to be "stiffed by the
Democratic Congress."
Bush said, his message to
Congress will be "I've just come
back from New Hampshire, and a
lot of people are out of work, and if
you really care, pass this package."
Bush also confessed that he'd
made mistakes on the economic situ-
ation, especially in his assessment
earlier this year that the recession
was over. He said 49 out of 50
economists thought so, too.
"This state is going to pull out
of this," he said. "This national
economy is going to pull out of this.
... It always has, and it will."

city President James Duderstadt.
The University was a "serious
place" 28 years ago, Hornback said.
"Faculty were serious about teach-
ing. We were known to be a serious
place of learning."
Since then, Hornback said the
University has become progres-
sively less concerned about
Too many students are closed out
of classes, money is given to admin-
istrators instead of hiring more fac-
ulty and faculty are generally no
longer concerned with teaching, he
"Teachers don't assign papers be-
cause they don't want to read
them... faculty teach less, and
classes get bigger and bigger," he
Hornback said he began thinking
about leaving the University 12
years ago and made the decision
three years ago that he "had to get
out of here."
" i want to be in a place that's se-
rious about students ... and students
are serious about learning," Horn-
back said.
Bellarmine College is a small
liberal arts college with only two
administrators which enables it to

focus on educating the students,
Hornback said.
Hornback wrote that he has be-
come frustrated fighting "against
all that is wrong" with the Univer-
sity. It is "an uphill battle," he ex-
One University administrator
said that Hornback may be overre-
"I agree that the University
doesn't care enough about under-
graduate education, but ... I think
there is more concern than
(Hornback) realizes," said Honors
Program Director Ruth Scodel.
"The problem that frustrates him is
real, but I think he exaggerates it,"
she said.
Scodel described Hornback as a
professor who often voices his
heartfelt concerns. "Bert will drive
some people crazy ... but even those
people will respect him," she said.
Moon Chung, a junior in the in-
teflex program, said that Hornback
made his classes exciting and cared
about his students. "We met at his
house once outside of class," she
said. Hornback is "intellectual, in-
sightful and caring," Chung said.
"I've invested a lot of my life
here," Hornback said. "But as a
teaching institution ... I simply
think there's something fraudulent
about (the University)."

I'm here to listen.
"I'm not up here to assign
blame," he said. "I'll take my share
of the blame. I don't take it for not
caring or not understanding."
Bush faces conservative commen-
tator Patrick Buchanan in the Feb.
18 GOP primary. Five candidates for
the Democratic presidential nomi-
nation are campaigning, too.
Buchanan stopped in at an unem-
ployment office in Manchester and
said the president should come see
"the economic casualties of

One of Bush's Democratic rivals,
Paul Tsongas, said the president
owed New Hampshire "some idea
what his economic strategy is."
The president is expected to
campaign here twice more before the
election; Vice President Dan Quayle
and other administration figures are
due, too.
At a hangar at Pease Air Force
Base, shut down a year ago in the
first of the post-Cold War base
closings, Bush met with 115 leaders
of business, industry and economic
development organizations.
"I know I've got big problems,
but we're going to take care of
them," he said.

social functions, especially those
held by the Black Greek Association
(BGA), as examples in which proper
resources were lacking. He pointed
to a recent BGA party in the
Michigan Union's Ballroom at
which many students were turned
away due to a lack of space.
BGA fraternities and sororities
do not own houses, and hold their
social events in public venues.
BGA President James Green
agreed that capacity is a regular
problem for his organization.
"We do have a capacity problem.
The only room big enough for us is
the Ballroom, and we regularly turn
away 200 or 300 a night there," he
Aside from resources,
University officials stressed the
importance of institutionalizing the
gains made by the Mandate. John
Matlock, director of the Office of
Minority Affairs, pointed out that
15 years ago, Black enrollment had

risen to the current 'level, after
which it began to drop.
He said steps must be taken to
make sure this does not happen
again. "People will have to look at
us 15 years from now and ask if we
continued the trend," he said.
Tracye Matthews, who, partici-
pated in the protests that helped
spur the Mandate and is now on the
board of the Baker-Mandela Center
for Anti-Racist Education, said she
was pleased the numbers were in-
creasing. However, Matthews
pointed out that enrollment of
Black students was still far below
national population levels, which
the University pledged to work to-
ward in 1970.
Duderstadt said he was pleased
by the progress thus far, but that
there was more to be done.
"We have made more progress
than any university in the country as
far as representation. Now the ques-
tion is, how to knit-a multicultural
community into a learning envi-
ronment? ... We are far enough
ahead that there are, no models we
can look at," Duderstadt said.
