Ind. sign starts
cross-state feud
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (UPI) - There's a war between the
states brewing on the Michigan-Indiana border, and words -
more precisely, tourism slogans - are the weapons.
An Indiana billboard company put up a sign - exposed to
thousands of recent visitors to Indiana University - urging
vacationers to "Say No to Michigan. Wander Indiana First."
Michigan tourism officials are taking the butchery of their
"Say Yes to Michigan" television and newspaper campaign
in stride, but some Michiganders aren't amused, and have
complained to the Indiana Chamber of Commerce.
Travel officials in Indiana, in the midst of their own "wan-
der Indiana" campaign, are proclaiming they had nothing to
do with the billboard - but they apparently aren't terribly up-
set about it either.
The tourism bureau in Bloomington published a photo of
the billboard on the front page of a special newsletter
honoring "Wander Indiana" week.
Josephine Hickman, president of Hoosier Outdoor Adver-
tising, admitted her billboard "pokes fun at Michigan."
"But there are 'Say Yes to Michigan' signs posted all over
northern Indiana and Hosiers'feelings aren't hurt," she said.
She said she didn't know how long the sign would stay up,
but noted thousands probably saw it during the recent Little
500 bicycle race and graduation ceremonies at Indiana
