incumbent Republican Sen. Spencer Abraham, and
Democratic Reps. John Conyers and Carolyn Kil-
patrick of Detroit.
Domestic policy was on the agenda for the Detroit
ralliers. Gore outlined his plans for a "lockbox" on
health care and Social Security funds.
He spoke about the "fuzzy math" in Bush's domes-
tic spending platform, tax cuts, prescription drugs, a
patients bill of rights and education.
"I'm not asking for your support based on the
strong economy that we've got," Gore told the crowd.
"I'm asking for your support based on the economy
that we're going to get."
On Friday, Bush discussed recent gas price increas-
es in light of the Middle East crisis, noting that the
United States imports 56 percent of its oil.
"To every worker in the auto industry .I say your
work is literally the engine of our economy."
-George W. Bush
Republican presidential candidate
Making an appeal to many Michigan families'
reliance on the automotive industry, the Texas gover-
nor warned a group of GM workers that Gore's envi-
ronmental policies could cost them their jobs.
"In speeches, (Gore) calls autoworkers his friends.
But in his book, he declares that the engines that
power your cars are his enemy," Bush said, referring to
Gore's remarks in his book, "Earth in the Balance,"
about the environmental hazards of the internal com-
"To every worker in the auto industry, to the one
million Midwesterners whose jobs depend on the auto
industry, I say your work is literally the engine of our
economy," he said.
"On the Clinton-Gore watch, Saddam Hus-
sein's Iraq has become a major supplier of oil to
America. This means that one of our worst ene-
mies is gaining more and more control over our
country's economic future," Bush said. "The cur-
rent crisis in the Middle East underscores the

competed in field-day events like a
watermelon toss and a seed-spitting
contest. "It's a fun way to be able to
give something back to your commu-
nity," said LSA sophomore Julie
Ponitz, a member of Alpha Phi,
while cheering on her sisters during
the slice-of-watermelon toss.
The winning sorority, Gamma Phi
Beta, split the proceeds from the event
with Lambda Chi Alpha and will donate
the money to YMCA camps. Lambda
Chi Alpha will give donations and
canned goods it received to the North
American Food Drive.
Later on Friday, Ann Bonevick, a
1960 University graduate, watched the
pep rally on the Diag.
"All four of my brothers and I come
back here every year during Homecom-
ing. It's a sort of family reunion,"
The pep rally included performances
by the Michigan Marching Band, the
Michigan cheerleaders and members of
Phi Beta Sigma fraternity.
Although head football coach Lloyd
Carr was not able to attend the rally,
team co-captain Steve Hutchinson
came out to get Michigan fans ready
for the game.

Franklin and the second at the Park
West Gallery. "We understand eco-
nomic growth comes from the private
sector," Lieberman said. "But govern-
ment can create the context and fiscal
responsibility is at the heart of it."
In Franklin, Lieberman warned
against Bush's economic plans. "The
Bush/Cheney ticket goes way over the
top of the budget surplus," adding that
being frivolous with budget funds could
"affect the health of the stock market."
Campaign officials said Lieberman
raised a total of S425,000 last night for
the Democratic National Committee.

U.S. leaders head to Egypt for sumnit
WASHINGTON - U.S. leaders headed to Egypt yesterday to try to cool
Middle East tensions but with little hope of resuming an Israeli-Palestinian peac
process that Secretary of State Madeleine Albright said "is the only road" aw
President Clinton took a break from almost constant telephone diplomacy to
attend services at Foundry Methodist Church, where the congregation prayed
that he would succeed in bringing peace between Israelis and Palestinians.
Clinton made calls to various Middle East leaders, and received a briefing
frorn Albright and Sandy Berger, his national security adviser before departing
for Egypt. He chatted animatedly with Albright and Berger as they boarded his
helicopter en route to the airport.
The president was to participate in emergency talks today at Sharm el-Sheikh
with Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat, Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak, Egypt-
ian President Hosni Mubarak and King Abdullah of Jordan.
Berger told NBC's "Meet the Press" that the president was going into the s
mit focused on stopping the violence, in which more than 100 people, mos
Palestinians, have been killed.
"I have no illusions. This is a very difficult situation. Emotions and frustra-
tions are very high on both sides," Berger said. "It will be difficult to resume
negotiations for a peace agreement, I think, quickly."
