STERLING HEIGHTS -
Democratic Presidential Candidate
Bill Clinton returned to Macomb
County yesterday in an effort to woo
back Reagan Democrats in
New York Gov. Mario Cuomo
and Clinton - who has made two
previous campaign stops in Macomb
County - addressed about 10,000
people at Adlai Stevenson High
School in Sterling Heights.
Meanwhile, President George
Bush spoke to the International
Association of Chiefs of Police in
Bush criticized Clinton's anti-
crime program, and touted his own
plan for toughening penalties for
"People who act like animals
have no place in decent society," he
said. "Thugs who take cars at gun-
point should spend so long in jail
that when they get out they are too
old to drive."
Bush, in his speech to police of-
ficials, said Congress has been
blocking his anti-crime plan, which
includes strengthening laws against
domestic and sexual violence, since
Bill Hamilton, a volunteer from
Clinton's campaign headquarters in
Little Rock, Ark., said Clinton came
to Sterling Heights to secure votes in
"Michigan is a very competitive
state. It has gone Republican in the
last three elections, but Michigan
voter registration is mostly
Democratic," he said. "Macomb
County is unique as a home to
Reagan Democrats. This county has
high unemployment. A lot of people
are hurting - people who were
willing to take a chance on George
Bush four years ago. Now they are

Perot begins campaign tour
with attacks on character
FLEMINGTON, N.J. (AP) - Ross Perot began to campaign in person
yesterday and joined the debate over character for the first time, casting
himself as more reliable than President Bush or Bill Clinton.
Perot made the first face-to-face appearance of his revived campaign be-
fore an enthusiastic crowd of tens of thousands at a stock car track. He also
planned to speak to a rally in Pittsburgh later in the day.
"If you are going into combat and you could take any of the three of us,
who would you want on your side?" Perot asked the cheering crowd at
"If you were takenyhostage in a foreign country, which one of the candi-
dates do you think would come in and get you?" said Perot.
"All'three candidates go over to your house one night and want to bor-
row money from you. Which one would you lend money to?" he asked
above uproarious laughter from the crowd.

Regent hopeful stresses open ties

by Karen Sabgir
Daily Administration Reporter
Larry Deitch, Democratic candi-
date for the U-M Board of Regents,
said his passion for politics -is as old
as the presidential campaign poster
of John F. Kennedy that hangs in his
den - dating back more than 30
"I get passionate about voting. I
think it is a great privilege. I think
the choice in the regents' campaign
is clear in what we believe in."
Deitch - an
banking law in
- is a member of
Deitch Commission and
the treasurer of
the Michigan Democratic Party.
Deitch has campaigned for various
state Democrats, including Gov.
James Blanchard and Sen. Carl
Deitch, who hails from
Bloomfield Hills, is one of four can-
didates running for the U-M Board
of Regents. Each of the eight mem-
bers of the board is elected for an
eight-year term. U-M President
James Duderstadt serves on the
board, but does not vote.
There are two seats open this
year. One was vacated after the
Michigan Republican Party did not
endorse Regent Veronica Smith (R-
Grosse Ile) for re-election. Regent
Neal Nielsen's (R-Brighton) term
ends in November, but he is running
Deitch said accessibility to the
students - a major part of a regent's
constituency - is important and
added that it is the regents' respon-
sibility to consult with students.
"I'm thinking about the idea of
having office hours," Deitch said.
He said he wants to find ways to
open communication between stu-
dents and regents before and after
important decisions are made - like
tuition increases and implementation
of the conduct code.
"We do have a responsibility to
the taxpayers, but we have to strive
for a consensus and let people know
that (decisions) were honestly and
conscientiously arrived at."

Daily Gender Issues Reporter
When Phil started college, he had
no idea he would become the one
man out of 10 who is sexually
abused. Joe, the man who allegedly
abused him, was a successful busi-
ness man in his mid- to late-50s.
"He was very charismatic. He
made you feel very loved and
wanted," Phil said. "I spent much of
my youth looking for a dad. Joe
gained my trust and gave me physi-
cal comfort as a dad. But I hated
myself because it progressed into
