at O'Hare
CHICAGO (AP) - Two jetliners
carrying 261 persons came within about
100 feet of colliding at O'Hare Inter-
national Airport yesterday when a pilot
who was landing veered off his final ap-
proach to avoid hitting a jet taxiing for
takeoff on an intersecting-runway, of-
ficials said
The Federal Aviation Administration
confirmed the "near miss," and said
witnesses had reported seeing an
American Airlines Boeing 727 pass just
100 feet over a Braniff International
Boeing 727, spokesman Neal Callahan
"It was uncomfortably close and a
dangerous situation," an American
spokesman said.
'Callahan said he would not know
,t positively how close the planes came or
the cause of the incident until the crews
are interviewed and cockpit tapes

Bush makes election-

eve sweep for votes

' ".,#;. a: r ,x::,::.' r:.

DETROIT (UPI)-George Bush
made a frantic election-eve sweep of
Michigan yesterday in search of the
crossover votes he needs to prevent
Ronald Reagan from clinching the
Republican presidential nomination
It was unlikely Reagan, who is given
a slight edge hee, would get enough
delegates to put him over the top in the
state where he expects to be nominated
July 16.
BUT A GOOD showing in Michigan
could enable him to seize the
nomination in Oregon, where he is
favored to win a majority of that state's
29 Republican delegates today.
In the latest UPI delegate count,
Reagan is 59 delegates shy of the 998 he
needs to clinch the nomination.
Despite good weather, a slim voter
turnout-23 per cent, or 1.2
million-was forecast. A light turnout is
expected to benefit Reagan.
A RECENT REAGAN poll showed his
10 percentage-point lead dwindling
amid a barrage of Bush radio adver-
Bush is hoping for a repeat of 1976,
when Reagan's unsuccqssful drive for
the nomination lost momentum in
Michigan. Reagan drew only 35 per
cent of the vote against native son
Gerald Ford, thanks to an intense, last-
minute campaign by party

progressives who this time are working
for Bush.
The Michigan delegates will be ap-
portioned to the candidates based on
their percentage of the statewide raw
vote total.
"I THINK I'M going to win in
Michigan," Bush said yesterday.
"I have the same feeling I had when
we won in Pennsylvania and when we
came so close in Texas."
But the former U.N. ambassador
wasn't as confident of his prospects in
"I DON'T FEEL as secure about
that," he said. "I was only there a day-
and-a-half. It's a state where he has a
lot of strength in the southern part."
Bush spent four straight days in his
final Michigan effort-one which, he
concedes, is crucial to his survival in
the campaign.
He campaigned in Detroit, Lansing,
Saginaw and Muskegon on the final day
of the Michigan campaign. Reagan left
for Oregon after an early morning news
conference in Dearborn.
Democrats have no meaningful
primary of their own. California Gov.
Jerry Brown and former U.S. Labor
Party head Lyndon LaRouche are the
only two names on the non-binding
Democrataic ballot, and the two
Republican candidates only appealed
for cross-over votes.
