George Bush won the Michigan
presidential primary election in a star-
tling runaway last night and put Ronald
Reagan's drive toward the Republican
presidential nomination on hold for the
moment.
Bush was gaining 58 per cent of the
vote to Reagan's 32 per cent. The for-
mer United Nations ambassador said
victory was "a very big shot in the

arm," and means "I shouldn't be writ-
ten off."
REAGAN WAS favored in yester-
day's other primary - Oregon, where
President Carter sought to write off
Sen. Edward Kennedy and convince
Democrats their race is over.
Preliminarv results of the ARC News

poll of Oregon voters indicated Carter
and Reagan were running strong.
Carter and Kennedy stayed off the
ballot in Michigan, where Democrats
held a primary that didn't count.
Kennedy said the Democratic race is
"absolutely not" over, and accused
Carter of trying to put up a
smokescreen by suggesting his
renomination is assured.
"I'M ELATED. It was a major win,"
Bush said in Cleveland.
The Michigan GOP primary drew a
sparse turnout. This was the vote with
48 per cent of the precincts counted :
Bush 177,066 or 58 per cent, to lead for
53 delegates.
Reagan 94,429 or 32 per cent, for 29
delegates.
Rep. John Anderson, out of the
Republican race but still on the
primary ballots, was gaining eight per
cent of the vote.
"THIS IS A great victory for George
Bush," said Gov. William Milliken, who
awaited the outcome in the governor's
mansion in Lansing.
"It is proof of his ability to appeal to a
broad range of the electorate. While he
came to Michigan a longshot, he is
emerging as the party's best shot for a
victory this fall."
Bush said in advance that a victory in
Michigan would upset Reagan's "ban-
dwagon psychology." He campaigned
the state with Milliken at his side and
said the governor's help was crucial.
REAGAN'S MICHIGAN campaign
chairman, John Gnau, conceded the
election at 8:55 p.m.
"The good news is that a combination
of Michigan and Oregon put him over
the top of delegates needed with one
vote to spare," Reagan's Michigan
campaign director, John Gnau told a
disbelieving crowd of about 50 at a
suburban hotel.
"The disappointing news is that we
didn't carry Michigan. I want to

The University Regents did not
violate the Open Meetings Act by
moving their March, 1979 meeting to
avoid demonstrators protesting the
University's investments in South
Africa, the Michigan Court of Appeals
ruled yesterday.
But Washtenaw County Coalition
Against Apartheid spokeswoman Heidi
Gottfried said yesterday the group will
appeal the decision, to the U.S.
Supreme Court if necessary.
THE APPEALS BOARD said the
Regents' action was "within the spirit"
of the act.
"Certainly, the Regents should not be

required to have demonstrators who
breach the peace at a meeting
physically and forcefully expelled by
law enforcement officials," the court
said.
Nearly 200 people, many of them
WCCAA members, protested the
University's investments during both
days of last year's March Regents
meeting. At that time the Regents ob-
tained a temporary injunction allowing
them to bar protestors from the
meeting room and admit only the press
and selected members of the public.
UNIVERSITY GENERAL Counsel
Roderick Daane said the central issue
is the definition of the word "exclude"
