Quayle blasts Clinton in Mich. visit
MONROE, Mich. (AP) - Vice
esident Dan Quayle wrapped up a
campaign bus tour through Michigan
yesterday, trying to sow seeds of
doubt about Democrat Bill Clinton.
"If Bill Clinton is elected, taxes
will go up. We'll have another re-
cession," Quayle told several hun-
dred cheering students at Monroe
County Community College.
"It's in your interest to make sure
Bill Clinton never makes it to the
,White House. Your future will be
better with George Bush. It'll be
worse with Bill Clinton."
Comparisons of Clinton to former
President Jimmy Carter cropped up
often as the vice president rumbled
through southern Michigan on a
campaign swing that began Tuesday.
He left Michigan headed for Ohio
Campaign officials said a visit by
President Bush to Macomb County,
known for its crossover "Reagan
Democrats," was likely on Sunday.
Bush continued his whistle-stop tour
of the.South yesterday. Clinton also

ages of high interest rates, soaring
inflation and long gasoline rationing
lines yesterday at brief stops in
Monroe, Hillsdale and Spring Arbor.
Voters in all three areas strongly
backed Bush in 1988.
A Clinton administration "is a
recipe for disaster," Quayle said at
Spring Arbor College. He urged
supporters there to return Bush to the
White House, "because we invest in
our people, not in our government."
"They really want to turn back
the clock. It's your choice, folks, if
you're going to go back to what
Jimmy Carter gave us," Quayle said.
"Your're going to pay the bill."
In Monroe, Quayle also attacked
the Arkansas governor's plan for a
national health care system.
The vice president said he agreed.
that a strategy is needed to help the
34 million Americans who lack
health insurance. But he said
Clinton's plan would lead to ra-
tioning and "a waiting line at the
"Our goal is to make sure every
American has made available to
them affordable health insurance,"
Quayle said during a stop at
Quayle reminded voters of
Republican Gov. John Engler's nar-
row win in 1990 and cautioned them
not' to discount Bush despite his re-
cent poor showing in the polls.
"Don't believe the experts. If you
listened to them, John Engler
wouldn't be standing here. He was
14 points down with the election a
week away," Quayle said.
"I'm going to make the same
prediction. It's going to be a tough
and competitive election. We're go-
ing to take this down to the last hour,
the last vote. But we're going to turn
the corner and win this election."
Quayle's pledge of a leaner gov-
ernment and his hits on Clinton's
character played well in the
Republican strongholds Quayle vis-
Kathy Burns of Spring Arbo;
said it sealed her vote for Bush. "He
hit on pertinent issues that will make
me vote," she said.
Beverly Baldwin of Monroe said
the character issue was most impor-
tant. On that front, she said, the
Bush-Quayle ticket won her
"They've got good qualities,
good morals. If you think high
things, the economy will come, too,"
"I think President Bush has ideas
we need," Betty Guajardo said after
watching Quayle's visit to Hillsdale.
"Believe me, Bill Clinton and Al
Gore are bad news for Michigan,"

mail expenditures have soared
WASHINGTON (AP) - All but
six of Michigan's 18 members of
Congress spent more on taxpayer-
funded mail than the average con-
gressional challenger spent on their
entire election campaigns, a study
released yesterday showed.
The National Taxpayers Union
said the report proves franking privi-
leges offer an unfair advantage to in-
Of the 435 members of the
House, 310 spent more on publicly
financed mail between January 1991
and Sept. 22, 1992, than the
$108,506 average spent by House
The only Michigan members who
didn't exceed that amount during the
21-month period were Reps. Dale
Kildee, D-Flint, who spent $28,476;
Carl Pursell, R-Plymouth, $59,675;
Paul Henry, R-Grand Rapids,
$77,224; Dennis Hertel, D-Harper

Alma College prof. teaches class
*about death with tour of morgue

ALMA, Mich. (AP) - Professor
William Palmer's assignments aren't
typical of most college English
The Alma College professor
takes his first-year students' writing
classes to the human anatomy lab to
look at cadavers.
"I try to teach contrast," Palmer
says. "It produces awareness and

much as I'm trying to help students
Students view the corpses in mid-
dissection, says Palmer, who created
the assignment four years ago with
the help of John Davis, an associate
professor of exercise, health and

during the visit. Two or three
cadavers, draped in green, lie on
tables before the students.
Davis may peel away the drape

Then, when he senses that the

on their own views about death and
their reactions to the encounter.

on me," senior biology major Justin
Alan Stone, president of the
1,200-student college in central
Michigan, approves of the unusual
"No one has ever complained
about it to me," he said. "It's not
abusive or particularly ghoulish in
any way. People who donate their
bodies to science probably would
say it's all right for them to be used
in art and literature as well."
But the director of the Michigan
State University program that
provides the bodies to Alma said she
was unaware bodies were being used
in a writing class.
"If we had been asked, we would
have said no," said Kristin Liles.
She said she would initiate a
