Rep. Geraldine Ferraro of New York gestures to the crowd last night at the
Democratic National Convention in San Francisco just before making a
speech accepting the party's vice president nomination.

SAN FRANCISCO (UPI) - The
Democratic Party nominated
Geraldine Ferraro for vice president
yesterday and heard its new presiden-
tial candidate, Walter Mondale, vow to
fight President Reagan "for the
The Mondale-Ferraro ticket - the
first in American history with a woman
- began the 100-day war for the White
House as underdogs but also as the
beneficiaries of a party united after a
long and bitter primary season.
FERRARO was nominated by ac-
clamation in a frenzied demonstration
as tears streamed down the faces of
As Mondale came before the conven-
tion to accept the nomination he
wrestled from Sen. Gary Hart and Jesse
Jackson, he asked not only the support
of party loyalists, but of those
Democrats who defected by the
thousands in 1980 to vote for Reagan.
"Over the next hundred days, in
every word we say, and every life we
touch, we will be fighting for the
American future," Mondale said. To
those who deserted four years ago, he
said: "I heard you. And our party
"TONIGHT we come to you with new
realism, ready for the future, and
recapturing the best in our tradition,"
he said , "We are wiser, stronger, and
focused on the future.'
Mondale, 56, one of the last old-time
liberals out of the New Deal mold, won
the nomination on the first ballot Wed-
nesday night. Despite his acceptance
speech, the spotlight on the final night
of the convention was on Ferraro, 48,
the feisty three-term congresswoman
from New York's borough of Queens.
"Dy sending an American woman to
run for our nation's second highest of-
fice, you send a powerful signal to all
Americans," he said.
"THERE ARE no doors we cannot
unlock. Wetwill pliace no limits on
"If we can do this, we can do
anything," she said.
Mondale, who picked Ferraro from a
field that also included other women,
blacks and minorities, said: "Tonight
we open a new door to the future.
Reagan calls that 'tokenism.' We call it
SEN. EDWARD Kennedy, who in-
troduced Mondale, said that by picking
Ferraro, "Walter Mondale has already
done more this country in one short day
than Ronald Reagan has done in four
long years in office."
In a clear voice, Ferraro told the con-
vention: "My heart is filled with pride.
Tonight, the daughter of a woman
whose highest goal was a future for her
children talks to our nation's oldest par-
ty about a future for us all. I am proud
to run with a man who will be one of the
greatest presidents of this century."
Mondale spoke of the coalition the
Democrats have put together in their
unity drive - a coalition that has been
vital to eight Democratic presidential
victories in the last half century.
"JUST LOOK at us: Black and white,
Asian and Hispanic, Native and im-
migrant, young and old, urban and
rural, male and female, from 'yuppy' to
lunchpail, from sea to shining sea," he

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - The Rev.
Jesse -Jackson, moving swiftly to heal
any wounds left by his bid for the
presidency, met privately yesterday
with black leaders - including several
who had snubbed his campaign - to
appeal for unity in the election battle
against President Reagan.
Several black leaders who had sup-
ported Walter Mondale's successful
claim to the Democratic presidential
nomination gathered with Jackson and
his backers, including Walter Faun-
troy, the congressional delegate from
the District of Columbia, and Rep.
Ronald Dellums of California.
AMONG THE pro-Mondale leaders
were Coretta Scott King, Atlanta Mayor
Andrew Young and Georgia state Sen.

THE DEPARTMENT of Economics,
the future resident of Lorch Hall, was
promised a total reconstruction of the
interior of the building to accommodate
the misplaced economists.
Since the Economics Building burned
down Christmas Eve, 1981, the
professors - and any students wishing
to see them - have been exiled to the
North Ingalls Building, which is closer
to the medical campus than central
campus. The professors were told the
site was a temporary home.
Paul Spradlin, Director of Plant Ex-
tensions, blamed the poor timing of the
project as the reason that only one con-
tractor has bid on the renovation.
Because summer is an extremely busy
time of the year for construction com-
panies, according to Spradlin, the
University will "wait and repackage
the project" at a later date.
