About 25 U-M
students among the
President Bush at
airport and rally
by Lauren Dermer
Daily Government Reporter
EAST LANSING - LSA junior
Matthew Kliber traveled here yes-
terday to "show support for Bush,
Quayle and disposable income."
Kliber was one of about 25 U-M
College Republicans who joined
thousands of President Bush's sup-
porters at a rally in Lansing last
night for the third and final presi-
The day began at 10 a.m. when a
busload of College Republicans -
under the direction and funding of
the GOP - rolled into the capital
to meet student republicans from 40
colleges and universities in
Michigan, Ohio and Indiana.
"I'm going to East Lansing to
show my support for the
Republican leadership of George
Bush and Dan Quayle and to de-
nounce the tax and spend agenda of
the Democratic opposition," said
Engineering sophomore Jim Long.
The first stop was at Capital
City Airport, where College
Republicans and about 1,500 others
greeted President and Barbara Bush
as they exited Air Force One.
In a surprise announcement at
the airport, four of Perot's leaders
appointed as his official representa-
tives to the Electoral College broke
ranks with the campaign and de-
clared their support for the re-elec-
tion of Bush.
"We are grateful to Perot for
getting us involved," said Jim
Jenkins, a Detroit-area business ex-
ecutive who had opened three
storefronts for Perot. "However,
we've decideda vote for Perot is a
vote for Clinton ... and America
cannot afford Bill Clinton."
The former Perot leaders made a
pledge to the president that they
would work with their 3,000 volun-
teers to assist him in pushing his
program through Congress during
the next four years.
LSA junior John Damoose said
he was excited at the airport to see
how well Bush appeared and how
personable President Bush and
"It is important that people are
starting to question Clinton," he
said. "I believe Bush has made a
significant change in his focus -
he is committed to working for do-

More than 12,000 students, ac-
tivists and community members
poured into the mall in front of
Rackham Graduate School last
night to hear Democratic presiden-
tial nominee Bill Clinton's address.
"People are so enthusiastic," U-
M College Democrats Vice-Chair
Carrie Friedman said. "It's the
whole Ann Arbor community see-
ing the next president of the United
States, speaking at our university ...
This is the most exciting thing that
Clinton spoke at 11:15 p.m. for
about ten minutes, bringing wild
cheers from the crowd that
stretched from the steps of
Rackham to the Diag. Clinton's
wife, Hillary, also spoke at the
rally, and his daughter, Chelsea,
waved from the platform.
"This election is about whether
you have the courage to change,
and to face the challenge at the end
of the cold war," Clinton said.
People waving "Unite the States,
Clinton/Gore '92 signs, and wear-
ing buttons demanding reproductive
rights for women filled every
square inch between the Modern
Language Building and the
"Thirty-two years and five days
ago this evening, John F. Kennedy
proposed a change for my genera-
tion," Clinton said.

polls, went on the offensive. He at-

charged him with 'fp-fropping on
several key issues, including the
Arkansas governor's record and his

"You can't have a pattern of one
side of the argument one day and
the other side of the argument the
next day," Bush said.

than 300 people, Texas billionaire Ross Perot

Perot received a warm welcome and stand-
ing ovation as he spoke to a sparsely-filled
room at Lansing's Holiday Inn at a rally
sponsored by United We Stand, America -
an organization formed after Perot dropped
out of the presidential race in late July.
"We must reorganize the government and
I'll be the one who'll do this the fastest. If
I'm elected we will have a voice like a bull-
horn," he said. "God created the heavens and
earth in six days and it doesn't take forever to
Perot emphasized the need for the country
to find solutions in fighting the deficit.
"The United States worker output is num-
ber one in the world. When we have the finest
workforce in the world and also have the
highest deficit - something is wrong. We
cannot dig ourselves out of a hole if we do
not have full employment," Perot said.
Perot stressed the need for strong interna-
tional trade policies to rescue the country
"We are giving away whole industries by
giving into trade negotiations. This will de-
stroy this country," Perot said.
"Industry is the future - we have the in-
dustry, but the foreigners are taking it because
we have no legitimate form of action," he

City clerk's office
to recruit students
by Jonathan Berndt
Daily City Reporter
City Hall needs your help, and will even pay for it.
The city clerk's office is recruiting U-M students
and Ann Arbor residents to count absentee ballots and
to work at polling sites for the Nov. 3 election.
Both jobs pay $5 per hour and require participants
to be registered to vote in Ann Arbor and to attend
one training session.
"We accept people when they call," said Herb
Katz, director of election recruiting. "We need at least
10 more (to count absentee ballots). We need reserve
people because I know there will be cancellations."
People who count ballots will have to put in a full-
day commitment, beginning at 9 a.m. and ending
when all the ballots are counted.
The city also has clerk positions open at polling
sites, which are more flexible and can be scheduled

Researchers at the U-M and Duke

fighting the AIDS virus.
One of the projects could produce a gene

HIV virus, which causes AIDS, while the

HIV virus' structural protein, Rev, which

The researchers injected this mutant pro-
