"I really think that your school is

stopped by to sign the petition. "I think
its possible elimination is really unfor-

"I don't know what the criteria for

dirty politics, we're just trying to face
political realities," he said.
BOTH PIERCE and Ferency, a self-
described socialist, represent the most
liberal faction of the Democratic party,
and, according to Ferency, the two
must work together to displace more
moderate party candidates William
Fitzgerald and poll frontrunner James
Also yesterday, Ferency addressed a
number of campaign issues, most
notably higher education and the
state's economic and tax structures.
"The problem is that the University
community has no political clout," he
"Universities also have fairly large
budgets, so they become available as
scapegoats in the budget cutting
process. Because of this, they have to
bear more of the burden of economic
trouble than they should," he said:
"They've cut universities to the bone,
and now they're going into the
marrow," he added.
UNIVERSITIES share the blame for
their troubles, Ferency said, because
they are "quite top-heavy in ad-

"We need, and are guaranteed con-

education, and we don't have one," he
said. "There is no central authority."
COMMENTING briefly on the tuition
hikes at the University due to losses in
state revenues, he said schools in
Michigan "are approaching being
schools for the elite." He placed part of
the blame for elitism in state schools on
the Reagan administration and its cut-
backs in federal financial aid assistan-

ministration for a "lack of foresight" in

recovery was on the horizon.
Ferency will be holding a fundraiser/
information meeting tomorrow at the
home of Ann Arbor state Rep. Perry
Bullard. Pierce is expected to attend.
Ferency said he doubted the rumor that
he and Pierce would run together with
Pierce in the lieutenant governor spot,
