Reagan gets stuck in
White House elevator

WASHINGTON (AP) - President
Reagan was a bit late to a ceremony the
state dining room yesterday - because
he got stuck ina White House elevator.
"I don't know just how to approach
this and tell you why we are late," the
president said, a little sheepisly, to
representatives of the National Health
Fair programs.
"IN 18 MONTHS it never happened,"
he said. "What really scared me was
when the gentleman who's been here for
many many years, who was with us,
said it never happened before. We've
been between here and the floor below
in the elevator. We had plenty of time
to get acquainted."
The "We' were Secretary of Health
and Human Services Richard Sch-
weiker, Secretary of Education T. H.
Bell, the president, elevator operator

Freddy Mayfield and a Secret Service
agent.
Mayfield said the elevator actually
had gotten stuck before between the
ground floor and main first floor where
the state dining room is. But never with
a president aboard.
THE QUINTET spent a cozy five
minutes in the elevator.
"I asked the president what hap.
pened when the elevator stoppedon a
deputy press secretary Larry Speakes.
"He said 'we looked at each other for a
while and looked at the ceiling for a
while.'''
The 200 or so people waiting for the
president in the ornate dining room
noticed only that the lights flickered for
short periods. Later it was learned that
a fire in a power station nearby had
caused similar momentary problems in
a wide area of Washington.

In the morning tPere's a chance of fog (just like in London). By afternoon
that will lift, but skies will remain partly cloudy all day with a high tem-
perature in the mid-80s. Q
Put a groundhog in Your tank
T HE STRANGE thumping Caroline Warfield heard didn't stop when
she drove her car into the service station in Baltimore. No wonder. The
groundhog under the hood was mighty angry. The sight of the small animal
"who was gnashing his teeth and snarling" sent a frightened attendent, Mike
Lentz, running into the gas station to call the police Saturday morning. Two
officers arrived, but were frightened of the growling, vicious, two-foot'long
beast. A standoff developed, as police and Lentz tried coaxing, blasting the
car's horn and swatting at the critter to get it to leave its new home. Even-
tually, a broom was produced, and the animal was swept out. It ran into the
station garage to hide. Still intimidated, station owner George Kolup called
city animal control for help. They used a lasso to capture the groundhog,
which was hiding in the corner of the garage. But by that time it was too late
for Warfield to figure out how many miles to the gallon of groundhog her car
gets D Double vision
V OTERS IN A Sierra, Nevada town will be seeing double when they study
their ballots in November when Lassen County Supervisor Paul Drake
will be listed twice. Drake is the Democratic candidate for a state assembly
seat. That puts him on the ballot once. In addition, County Clerk Jacqueline
Fuller said that enough signatures have been collected to call a special elec-
tion that would recall Drake from his current post as county super-
visor. She said the recall election - sparked by complaints that Drake is an-
ti-business-will be consolidated with the November general election, giving
Drake the unique opportunity to win some and lose some on the same ballot. Q

would hurt the U.S. position in the

D EMOC RAT
(The following letter to the editor
appeared in the Ann Arbor News,
July 22, 1982).
Bring back Faye
I encourage voters from the 9th
County Commissioner District to
vote for Gerry Faye on August 10. I
have worked with Gerry for the past
two years on the County Hoard and
have come to value his considerable
knowledge and experience.
Nearly as important as Gerry's
own wealth of ideas and sense of
direction for the county, however, is
his style of cooperative leadership.
He listens to the ideas and views of
others; he works cooperatively with
county staff and with other
commissioners. While giving
direction and supervision to our
excellent county staff, he allows
them the latitude to do the job for
which we pay them. He helps set
clear policy and direction from the
Board, but leaves daily
management of the County to our
professional staff.
Gerry is committed to good,
progressive, well-managed County
government of which we all may be
proud. He has been an important
asset these past years. We need
Gerry Faye back on the County
Board of Commissioners. Please vote
on August 10.

something less than the reductions we
have proposed."
Rep. William Broomfield, (R-Mich.),
who sponsored the substitute resoluti n,
charged that the Democratic-
spearheaded freeze measure "plays
fast and loose with our national
security."
ARGUING THAT the freeze would be
largely unverifiable and remove any
Soviet incentive to agree to significant
arms cuts, Broomfield told the House
that it was "clearly grounded in a belief
in miracles and a trust in the Soviets
that is unsupported by past experience
or common sense."
In place of an immiedate freeze, the
Broomfield resolution urged efforts
toward eventually achieving "an
equitable and verifiable agreement
which freezes strategic forces at equal
and substantially reduced levels."
But Rep. Clement Zablocki, (D-Wis.),
chairman of the House Foreign Affairs
Committee, asserted that after decades
of relentless growth in U.S. and Soviet
nucler stockpiles, "the genie must
begin to be put back in the bottle if we
are ever to have true security."
ZABLOCKI, chief sponsor of the
freeze resolution said it was an effort to
set "a sensible, coherent and
meaningful strategy for the United
States at the START talks" on strategic
arms reduction in Geneva.
