Bush returns to Grand Rapids

N Bush makes a stop in Grand Rapids before
heading to Pontiac today.
GRAND RAPIDS (AP) - The presidential campaign of Texas
Gov. George W. Bush headed back to Michigan for the third time
in two weeks.
Bush attended a political rally in downtown Grand Rapids last
night, and is scheduled to visit the city's Van Andel Institute this
morning and appear at a General Motors Corp. plant in Pontiac
this afternoon.
"He's here to get out the vote," said Vic Krause, chairman of
the Kent County Republican Party. "He has to make a strong
showing here, and the Kent County Republicans are really work-
ing extensively for him to get out the vote."
Local Republicans learned Monday afternoon that their party's
presidential candidate was coming to Grand Rapids.
By Wednesday afternoon, they had given away all 10,000 tick-
ets available for the rally at the Grand Center's Welsh Auditori-
um.
"By coming here, he's letting the voters in west Michigan
know where he stands on the issues and how he can lead this
country into the 21st century," Krause said.
"In the process, he'll invigorate voters to turn out at the polls,
not just Republicans but also independent voters."
Chad Clanton, a spokesman for the Michigan Democratic

Party, said Bush has some explaining to do to Michigan voters.
"People are slowly finding out about Bush's failed Texas
record," Clanton said.
"At some point, Bush is going to have to come clean and tell
people why Texas ranks dead last in the percentage of families
without health insurance, why Texas has the dirtiest air and the
secon.d-dirtiest water in America, and why he hasn't done a thing
to fix these things."
Vice President Al Gore questioned Bush's record as governor
on environmental and health issues Wednesday during the sec-
ond of three scheduled campaign debates between the two men.
Bush, Gore and their running mates have campaigned exten-
sively in Michigan in recent months in an effort to win the state's
18 electoral votes on Nov. 7.
Most recently, Bush campaigned in the Detroit area on Oct. 5,
the same day that Gore stumped in Grand Rapids. Bush was in
Pontiac and Saginaw on Sept. 28-29.
"It's an extremely important state," Krause said. "That's why
he (Bush) has spent so much time here and is focusing so much
on the state."
Bush did not win the state's GOP presidential primary on Feb.
22. That victory went to U.S. Sen. John McCain of Arizona.
Democrat Bill Clinton won Michigan in 1992 and 1996, while
Republican George Bush, George W. Bush's father, won the state
in 1988.

neighbor.
Other fraternities that declined to
participate include Theta Chi, whose
nationals would not let them play,
and Sigma Chi, who already had an
alumni event scheduled for that
morning.
During halftime of the Mudbowl
game, two sororities - Kappa Kappa
Gamma and Sigma Kappa - will face
off in their own flag football game in
the mud. Kane said the decision on
which sororities will play was deter-
mined by a house vote.
The Mudbowl raises money through
local sponsors for Motts Children's
Hospital.
So far sponsors have raised more
than S1,000, said SAE President Karl
Frei muth.

SHIP

Navy medical teams were en route
to the scene yesterday to treat those
injured in the 5:15 a.m. EDT explo-
sion, Pentagon officials said.
U.S. aircraft capable of evacuating the
injured were scheduled to fly to Aden.

The incident was all the more stun-
ning given that U.S. forces in the Mid-
dle East have been on a heightened
state of alert in recent days and securi-
ty plans for a port visit like the Cole's
are drawn up in advance.
The Cole had just arrived in the har-
bor and was scheduled to leave in
about four hours, officials said.
