"We havemade a very good start,"
Clinton said. "This country is in very
good shape and we don't need to go
Clinton also reminded the audi-
ence of his recent string of foreign
policy successes. "I wish you could
have seen the faces of the Haitians
holding up their 'Thank you America'
signs as President Aristide came home
and democracy came back to Haiti,"
After accusing the GOP of ob-
structionism in Congress, Clinton said
Republicans "want to take us back to
trickle-down economics" and called
the House Republican candidates'
Contract With America "a trillion
dollars worth of unfunded promises."
Clinton addressed a television ad
aired by Carr's opponent, Spence
Abraham, which quotes Clinton
thanking Carr for his help in passing
what the ad termed "Clinton's tax
Clinton said Carr should be
thanked for his vote on the bill, which
Clinton called a "deficit-reduction"
package. He added that Carr was in-
strumental in the passage of recent
student loan reforms.
Earlier, Carr had answered media
critics who said he had been distanc-
ing himself from the president. Carr
said, "I want the Washington Post,
The New York Times and the Detroit
News to take note: President Clinton,
we welcome you."
The East Lansing Democrat is in
the middle of a tight Senate race with
Abraham, ex-chairman of Michigan's
Republican Party. They are running
for the seat currently held by Riegle,
who is retiring.
Despite the fact that many Demo-
crats statewide are lagging in the polls,
Carr predicted a good year for his
party and said electing a Republican
senator would be a step backward.
Carr asked, "Do you want to go
back to the days when people drove
around with bumper stickers that said
'The last one out of Michigan, turn
out the lights'?"

her, the man tied her hands together
with rope, walked her around the
school and then fondled her. He even-
tually untied her and fled on foot.
An October 1992 attack on a
Maple home. He pointed a handgun at
her, forced her onto her bed and threat-
ened to rape her. She was fondled
while handcuffed. The suspect said to
her that he had been to the home
several times. The victim was walked
around the house before the man fled.
In November 1993, the same
suspect returned to the previous North
Maple home in the early morning,
broke in and attacked the victim's
mother. She was asleep and when she
was awakened by the man pointing a
gun at her. The mother was hand-
cuffed and walked around the house.
She was also threatened with rape and
was fondled. The man then fled in the
victim's car which was recovered near
Newport and Sunset Roads.
A June 1994 attack against a 24-
year-old woman that occurred in her
North State Street home. A man broke
into her home around 4 a.m. as she
was stepping out of the shower. He
strangled her with a rope and forced
her onto her bed. The suspect threat-
ened to rape her but was talked out of
In all the cases, the suspect wore a
ski mask. The most recent victim
caught glimpses of her attacker when
he lifted his mask periodically. The
description of the attacker in each
case, however, matches the one given
by the latest victim.
"Each victim was able to give a
good physical description of the sus-
pect even though he was masked a
few times," Kearney said.
The suspect is described by the
victims as apologetic, polite and con-
cerned about not hurting them. The
attacker has also indicated to his vic-
tims that he knows what he is doing is
wrong and in the past has sought
some sort of treatment. He also spends
a lot of time with his victims.
Ann Arbor Detective Dave Burke
who heads the investigation is look-
ing at all possible leads.
"He said that in some of these
other reports that he's gotten help
before, but nothing specific," Burke
said. "He didn't leave any evidence at
the other scenes."
Detectives from the city's police
department and the Washtenaw
County Sheriff'sDepartment are both
working on these cases.
"The task force that's investigat-
ing the serial rapist will continue to
investigate that," Kearney said. "Our
own detective division, Major Crimes
Section, will be investigating these
The suspect is believed to have
ties in the northwest part of the city,
bordered by Miller, North Maple and
Newport roads "because the incidents
have all occurred in that area,"j
The suspect is described as a white
male, 5' 8" to 6' tall, with a one inch
grayish-brown beard. He has a me-
dium build and is between 30 and 40
years old with a pointed nose and gray
He was last seen wearing a blue
waist-length, hooded, cotton sweat
jacket, dark pants, dark shoes and a
red and gray wool scarf on Oct.23. He
also was carrying a dark-colored knap-

possibility he'll attack again,"
Kearney said. "We don't know for

one of his television spots: "Mr.

one percent, I'll fight for everybody
Wolpe preceded Carr to the po-
dium and accused his opponent, Gov.
John Engler, of divisive campaign
tactics. "Let's take back our state gov-
ernment for all of the people of Michi-
gan," he said.
Wolpe, who is trailing Engler by
15 percent or more in most polls, said
Democrats held his fate in their hands.
"John Engler didn't win (the 1990)
election," Wolpe said. "We lost that
election, by a margin of three votes a
precinct. We won't make that mis-
In the closing remarks of his
speech, Clinton summed up the Demo-
crats' main themes.
"Say no the the failed policies of
the past, say yes to the future," Clinton
said. "Say no to fear, say yes to hope.
Say no to people who are always
trying to denigrate everything that we
do to move this country forward, and
say yes to Bob Carr."

DETROIT - Some pundits have
written him off as hopelessly behind
in the polls, but Howard Wolpe,
Democratic nominee for governor, is
maintaining an upbeat attitude.
In fact, Wolpe has adopted a new
champion for his cause: his GOP op-
ponent, incumbent John Engler.
Speaking to reporters after
yesterday's Detroit rally with Presi-
dent Clinton, Wolpe reached into his
suitcoat and produced a 1990 Detroit
News article. The article showed then-
challenger John Engler 14 percentage
points behind incumbent Democrat
James Blanchard. The article is dated
two days before the election.
"Some of the polls show us mov-
ing right now. And all across this
country, Republicans peaked about
three or four weeks ago," Wolpe said.
Wolpe is armed with the big les-
son Democrats learned in that sur-
prising 1990 loss: Democrats have
wages of a skilled worker. Seymour
said he supports the idea of term
limits since it "turns Congress back
to the people.
On foreign policy, the candi-
dates also disagreed. Seymour said,
"I'm against all foreign aid." He
stressed the need for "non-interven-
tion and peaceful relations with all"
nations. Seymour later said, "I be-
lieve in independent mercenaries."
He added that people can and should
go overseas to fight for their inter-
Rivers said the United States
should "only be involved where our
interests are involved." She said she
supports the use of foreign aid to
move people toward democracy.
Halyard said she was opposed to the
overall use of U.S. troops.
Despite these differences, Boyer
said, "We were really pleased that it
focused on the issues and not on

Defying polls, Wolpe keeps the
faith in race to replace'Engler
the voters, but they must get them to
the polls to win.
"Detroit is going to turn out as it's
never turned out before," Wolpe pre-
dicted. He said Clinton's visit would
energize Democrats at the grass-roots
Wolpe has also found themes that
resound with some of Michigan's
voters: giving public dollars to public
schools, blaming Engler for a billion-
dollar school funding shortfall pre-
dicted by some economists and say-
ing Michigan's booming economy
masks hidden weaknesses.
But those issues may not be
Wolpe has yet to find the hot but-
ton with Michigan voters, as Engler
did with promises of property tax cuts
and smaller government in 1990, and
as Clinton did with the nation's
economy in 1992.
And funds are running out. The
Michigan Democratic Party has no
more money to spend on television
advertising for Wolpe or any othe
Michigan candidate, leaving car
paigns with only their own resources.
Perhaps most importantly,
Michigan's economic numbers look
good. Unemployment is down and
the auto industry has returned to prof-
But Democrats say Engler taking
credit for Michigan's turnaround is
like the cock taking credit for the
dawn. They argue that Clinton's de
cit-cutting budget bill sparked rece
economic upswings, in Michigan as
well as nationally.
It's doubtful that Wolpe will be
able to persuade Michigan voters to
dump Engler, who did support a suq-
cessful property-tax cut and did cut
Michigan's bureaucracy - though
not without controversy.
The next week may show a shi
of momentum to Wolpe's favor, b
if not, he will be left clutching hopes
of an Engleresque election-day sur-

"One of the nice things about
this process is there is a lot less
paperwork. In the years before, we
had a lot of paperwork and a lot of
(forms) to fill out. It was very cum-
bersome," Dearborn student Charles
Erika Hodge, a University gradu-
ate student, said the new repayment
plan will help her because of the lower
income of her selected career.
"I can particularly appreciate this
aspect of income contingency as far
as the payments are concerned be-
cause I am going into the library pro-
fession," Hodge said. "And as every-
body knows, it is not as lucrative as
some of the other fields out there."
Harrison said the event was a pro-
ductive session for Clinton.
"It was a chance for (Clinton) to
understand how the program works,
which is exceedingly well '
Harrison said. "We're extreme@
pleased and the students reported it
was much easier and quicker to get
The purpose of the program, re-
ferred to as the Individual Education
Account, is to streamline procedures
for students, parents and schools in
the financial aid process - saving
taxpayers $4.3 billion over a fiv,
year period. The Individual Educ3
tion Account is projected to save stu-
dents nearly $2 billion.
In its first year of operation, the
Individual Education Account is at 5
percent of its eventual total loan vol-
ume. For the 1995-96 school year, 40
percent of the volume will be utilized.
In 1996-97, 50 percent will be uti-
lized and it will increase to 60 percent
for the 1998-99 school year.

ing student loans through a Direct
