Bush blasts
Carter policy
here, abroad

The Michigan Daily-Saturday, May 10, 1980-Page 3
LocalScenem

By TIMOTHY VAGLE
and BONNIE HAWKINS
Presidential candidate George Bush
told 200 attendants at a $200-a-plate
fundraising dinner at the Michigan
League last night under President Car-
ter's leadership, the United States has
lost credibility in the world political
arena.
Bush added that under his leadership
and guidance, he could restore it.
THE REPUBLICAN CONTENDER,
making a five-day Michigan swing
seeking votes, for the state's May 20
primary, said Carter's main problem in
foreign policy is a lack of commitment.
"To make a statement and then not be
able to follow through with it ... that's
what's wrong with our foreign policy
today," he said. "We make statements
and the opposition knows we can't keep
our word.

"You don't overcommit in foreign
policy," Bush continued. "nor do you
deal with foreign policy on a broken
word"Experience in foreign affairs, he
said, is a very important ingredient to
leading this country and the free world
to peace in the '80's.
Bush joked that Carter's only ex-
perience in foreign affairs before
becoming president was "that he had
breakfast at the International House of
Pancakes."
SWITCHING TO domestic policy,
Bush explained three methods by which
he would boost the nation's faltering
economy. He said he would relieve the
private sector of the' burden of
overregulation by government agen-
cies, control government spending, and
advocate a $20 billion supply-side tax
cut.

acting dean as one which will
"maintain momentum in our programs
... and make interim decisions."

Power was named last month to the
Bureau of International Organizations
as the new deputy assistant secretary
of state for human rights and social
affairs. She has previously chaired the
National Commission for UNESCO
(United Nations Educational,
Scientific, and Cultural Organization).'
"MY COLLEAGUES and the officers
of the University felt that I can make a
difference through my presence," she
said. "I can be another factor in stating
the case of the University in
Washington."
Similarly, Power added, she can
bring to the University community a

University President Harold Shapiro
said of the Regents in general, "I'm
sure they are all able to benefit the
University through their contacts in an
appropriate way." He said Power has
done so in the past and will probably
continue to do so.
POWER'S COLLEAGUES in
Washington praised her previous work
there. Bernard Engel, director of the
National Commission for UNESCO,
said, "I have found her to be one of the
most savvy people concerning
international affairs ... she is sensitive
to the realities in them."
Engel added the National
Commission, which Power chaired for
three years, has been "very active in
the field of human rights," and gave
Power experience with third-world
countries, which should aid her in her
new position.
George Dalley, Power's predecessor
in her new office and currently a Civil
Aeronautics Board member, said, "I
