TODAY/CNN/Gallup Poll shows
Clinton leading nationally by 18
American political science Prof.
Michael Traugott said although the polls
reflect a substantial Clinton lead, Dole
still has a chance to win the election.
"There is a strategic set of actions
(Dole) can do to win but (he is) unlike-
ly to do it," Traugott said.
Traugott said Dole has already lost
the votes of moderate Republican
women because of his approach to
abortion rights.
"He is responding to the conservative
right wing on abortion," Traugott said.
"He already gave away black and
minority voters by not attending the
NAACP (National Association for the
Advancement of Colored People) con-
There has also been much specula-
tion about Dole's choice for his run-
ning mate. For the past several weeks,
several governors, including Michigan
Gov. John Engler, have been in close
contact with members of the Dole

Engler is scheduled to speak on the
first day of the convention.
Traugott said the ideal vice-presiden-
tial candidate would be someone from
the Midwestern region of the country
because "Republicans have traditional-
ly thought elections are won or lost in
the midwest."
Bruce Smith, senior fellow emeritus
at the Brookings Institute in
Washington, D.C., said the convention
should provide at least a 10-percent
boost in the polls for Dole.
"The convention always gives the
party a boost. The problem is that if the
Republicans think (the race) is over, then
people will think it's over," Smith said.
The convention is expected to focus
on "'real people' in celebration of
Republican ideas and achievements."
Former Presidents George Bush and
Gerald Ford, U.S. Sen. Spencer
Abraham (R-Mich.), and Speaker of the
House Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) are also
scheduled to speak at the convention.
Rep. Susan Molinari (R-N.Y.), a pro-
choice advocate, is the keynote speaker
and is scheduled to speak on the second
day of the convention.

the Medical Center's rankings will slip
because of its downsizing.
The Medical Center is currently
undergoing major transitions in all sec-
tors. In April, Medical Center officials
unveiled a 3-year, $200 million plan to
downsize due to the pressures of man-
aged care companies.
In July, John Forsyth, Health System
president, surprised many when he
announced his resignation. One week
later, Giles Bole, Medical School Dean
also announced that he would step down
from his post and rejoin the faculty.
The University is reviewing options
to restructure the Medical Center. A pro-
posal is expected to be made in the fall.
"I don't think the ranking will go
down, because the cuts were made in a
way so that it will not affect the quality
of care," Schneidman said.
Wicha said he thinks some of the
downsizing actually improves the qual-
ity of care. He cited the centralization
of the cancer center into the new
Cancer and Geriatrics building as an
example of possible benefits.

AAPD to show June rally video

By Will Weissert
Daily StaffReporter
At the urging of the Ann Arbor City
Council, the Ann Arbor Police
Department scheduled for Aug. 13 a
public viewing of police video tape shot
during the June 22 anti-Ku Klux Klan
In a similar measure, the Michigan
chapter of Jobs With Justice (JWJ), a
group that was an "endorser of (June's)
anti-klan rally," plans to hold a public
hearing Aug. 14 to examine police con-
duct during the same rally.
"(The public viewing) will be an
opportunity for the public to view
exactly what occurred during the rally,"
AAPD Sgt. Phil Scheel said. "We are
living up to the promise we made to
City Council."
Ann Arbor Mayor Ingrid Sheldon said
the council requested police organize a
public viewing of video shot during the
rally to provide more information to
members of the public.
"We hope to get more information
out," she said. "If all of your informa-

tion about what happened at the ral
came from TV or radio bites, you would
have an incomplete view of what hap-
pened - the tape will help the public
fill in the gaps."
JWJ members said they hope their
hearing will be an opportunity for the
public to evaluate in a neutral environ-
ment the actions of Ann Arbor police
during the rally.
"There's something wrong with
system where people have to complaiW
to the police about the police and have
to expect something to get done that
way," said Ron Whittenberg, president
of JWJ's Michigan Chapter.
"The hearing will be an opportuni-
ty for people to come in a non-threat-
ening environment and say what
they've got to say."
JWJ also issued personal invitations
to Sheldon and all City Council mem-
bers to attend the hearing. "We hope
get the facts out and let the Cit
Council do with those facts what they
will," Whittenberg said.
Sheldon said she would not be attend-
ing the public hearing because she
would be out of town, but said open dis-
cussions about last month's rally are a
good idea. "There's a variety of differ-
ent opinions about what happened (dur-
ing the rally) out there and differe
groups are working through it in diff
ent ways' she said.
The public viewing of rally video tape
is scheduled at 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. next
Tuesday in council chambers on the sec-
ond floor of the municipal building.
The JWJ public hearing is scheduled
for 6 p.m. next Wednesday at the
U.A.W Local 38 office.
