ELECTION
Continued from page 1
"Michigan will be a closely
contested state," Traugott said.
"Every vote is going to count in
Michigan."
And the importance of
Michigan - which Bush won 54-
46 percent in 1988 - is undeni-
able to anyone who has been fol-
lowing the candidates on their
campaign trails.
Since Michigan's primary in
March, both Bush and Clinton
have made numerous visits to the
Great Lakes State.
President Bush spent his Labor
Day leading a five-mile walk
across the Mackinac Bridge and
attending a Polish Day Parade in
Hamtramck.
He rolled back into Michigan
on the "Spirit of America" train
last week, addressing four whistle-
stop rallies at Plymouth, Wixom,
Holly and Grand Blanc.
Although Bush tops Clinton in
his number of visits to Michigan,
analysts say Clinton's visits
seemed to have more of a long-
lasting impact on voters.
The president declined one in-
vitation to come to Michigan for
the first presidential debate,
scheduled for Sept. 22 at MSU.
The cancellation came as MSU
organizers announced that nine
Michigan corporations had do-
nated more than $200,000 to de-
fray the event's costs.
"In the state of Michigan, it
hurt Bush a lot. It was a free-ride
for 36 hours for Clinton," Traugott
said.
At MSU, Clinton gladly took
the opportunity to attack Bush -

GRANT
Continued from page 1
U-M research scientist.
Gillespie said it represents a new
partnership between federal gov-
ernment and higher education.
"The programs supported by this
grant will have a lasting influence on
the transportation systems of the fu-
ture," Gillespie said.
The grant will most directly af-
fect the U-M's graduate programs in
intelligent vehicle-highway systems.
These programs study how to

prevent collisions, provide highway
agencies with information about
road use, and provide drivers with
route-specific travel information.
Gillespie said some undergradu-
ates may receive aid in the form of
work-study money or scholarships
resulting from the grant. However,
graduate student teaching assistants
will receive the most benefits.
Ham said trucks are an essential
part of the economy, and that the
grant will improve their safety.
He added that the grant is also
important for its educational impact.

"(The center) attracts students to
transportation that might not go into
transportation," Ham said.
Ham said transportation students
will soon be in demand because 30
to 40 percent of managers in the
U.S. and Michigan transportation
departments will retire soon.
The grant is a renewal of a
stipend originally awarded in 1988.
The other universities that make
up the center are: Central State
University in Ohio, Michigan State
University, Michigan Technological
University, Northwestern University
and Wayne State University.

who refused to debate because of
the single-moderator format.
"If I had the worst economic
record of any president in 50
years, I wouldn't want to defend
that record either," Clinton said.
So, what does the importance
of Michigan mean for students'?
Lynn Rivers, a Democratic
candidate for state representative
in the 53rd District, said out-()f-
state students should look closely
at the political breakdown of their
home states.
Rivers said a student coming,
from a heavily Democratic or
Republican state may want to reg-
ister to vote in Michigan because a
single vote here may have a larger
impact, due to the closeness of the

race.
"Michigan has very closely-di-
vided camps and every vote is go-
ing to count," Rivers said.
The Rev. Jesse Jackson made a
more overt pitch at a rally
yesterday.
"You live where you slept in
the last two nights," he told stu-
dents at a voter registration drive
at Eastern Michigan University.
But John Petz, president of
College Republicans, encourages
out-of-state students to vote in
their home districts if that is where
their ties are.
"Politically speaking, we'd like
to have all the votes we can," he
said. "But this is a very temporary
situation for them on campus."

JACKSON
Continued from page 1
"You must leave here to be in the
real world order - the one God
made - not the one Bush imag-
ines," he said, stressing the ethnic
and racial diversity of the world.
But Jackson told students that the
country needs more than a change in
the presidency.
"We need a new direction," he
said. "We have an obligation to
honor our character ... and we gain
by making room for others." he said.
In the past, Jackson and other
Black leaders have criticized Clinton
fbr focusing his campaign on white,
middle-class voters and ignoring ur-
ban and Black issues.
But in a news conference after
the rally, Jackson said the Clinton
campaign has successfully broad-
ened its strategy to include inner-
city voters and organized labor.
He said this move will inspire all
voters, "urban and suburban, Black,
white, and brown" - which is what

he said Democratic nominee
Michael Dukakis lacked in 1988.
"Dukakis beat Bush in urban
America, but lost by a margin of re-
duced enthusiasm," he said.
He said Clinton's platform com-
mitment - to stimulate the economy
through investment, support prenatal
care, cut the military budget, and
grant Haitians political asylum - is
very similar to the agenda of the
"Rainbow Coalition," the national
social justice movement that Jackson
founded.
Jackson is credited for influenc-
ing an unprecedented number of
people to register to vote during his
campaign for the Democratic ticket
in 1988. His presence at EMU added
a significant number of students to
that list.
At the end of his speech, Jackson
asked all people in the room who
were not registered voters to raise
their hands.
"Come on down," he said.
"We're going to register you to vote
right now."

PEROT
Continued from page 1
national polls now and would have
little chance of winning should he
enter for the final month. With a
personal fortune to bankroll
television advertising, he could
significantly affect the race.
Opinions are divided on whether
Clinton or Bush would suffer most
from a Perot candidacy.
Currently Clinton hangs on to the
lead in Michigan over Bush even
with independent wild card Ross
Perot waiting in the wings,
according to a Michigan State
University poll released yesterday.
The poll said Clinton leads the
Republican incumbent 49.8 percent
to 38 percent in a two-way contest.
If Perot re-enters the race, he will
eat into the Clinton lead, but not
wipe it out. In a three-way race,
Clinton grabs 39.6 percent of the
support, Bush 32.2 percent and Perot
20.9 percent.

LAW
Continued from page 1
Krieger has helped run a program
that exposes first-year students to all
areas of practice.
In 1971, the law school place-
ment office stopped supplying inter-
viewers with student's GPAs. This
was to de-emphasize the factor that
grades played in interviews.
But law students say this factor
still weighs heavily.
"If you don't look good on paper,
then you've got to prove that wrong.
If you do look good, you've got to
prove there's something behind it,"
said Janene Collins, a second-year
law student.
Interviewers said U-M students
are very well-respected by national
firms, but this respect is not enough
to ensure a smooth interview.
Joe Paykel, a second-year law
student, recounted an interview from
last year with a midwest firm that
didn't go so well.

"The guy brought me into an in-
terviewing cubicle, sat mec down,
and asked, 'What do you want to
talk about?' 'Whatever will con-
'I'm nervous because
I didn't have a job
last summer and I
want one this
summer.'
- Terry Schmidt
law student
vince you I'm right for your firm,' I
said. There was a pregnant pause,
and the guy said, 'Well, that would
be your telling me what you'd like to
talk about."'
In the typical interview, a student
meets the interviewer in an empty.
room. The interviewer asks for the
student's hometown and extracurric-
ular activities.
"It's very tough to get to know a

person in 20 minutes," said Brian
Maschler, an interviewer from Jones,
Day, Reavis & Pogue, a
Washington, D.C. law firm.
The interviewer asks why the
student is interested in the location
of the firm, and for the student to
predict his or her activities in 10
years.
"I'm looking for them to present
themselves professionally, focused,
and with a sense of humor," said
Todd Anson, an interviewer from
Brobeck, Phleger & Harrison, a San
Diego firm.
If the interview is successful, the
student will receive a "call-back,"
which often includes a free flight,
meals and accommodations for the
student. This enables the firm to
further evaluate each candidate.
If all goes well, the student will
receive an offer from the firm.
"I think the system works very
well. I view my job as being an am-
bassador to my law firm," Anson
said.

Camorga, identified as the head of
the foreign office of the Colombian
National Bank, also was arrested
Friday in San Diego, Calif., Serra
said. Camorga reportedly has repre-
sented his country on international
anti-drug commissions.
Also arrested were four busi-
nessmen in Palermo who reputedly
received shipments of hundreds of

kilograms of cocaine.
Officials said they are linked to
Salvatore "Toto" Riina, 62, a fugi-
tive considered the head of the
Corleone Mafia clan and reputedly
the most powerful mob figure in
Italy.
The trail to Italy began in San
Diego, one official said. The official,
speaking on condition of anonymity,
said information developed there by
the DEA on money-laundering was
passed on to the DEA office in
Rome.
