intelligently, but hardly ever with
anything approaching a quotable
remark and too frequently with that
kind of on-the-one-hand and
on-t he-other-hand, statement which
defies summation and seems intended
to demonstrate that he is thinking
without revealing what he is thinking.
"I hear you've been up to see
Muskie," one reporter will remark to
another. "Did he say anything?" The
answer invariably is "No."
The story is told that on his last
trip to California Muskie had a
conversation with a Democratic leader
of Jewish faith who complimented
him on his visit to Israel and said, "I
was glad to hear you were impressed
with what Israel is doing."
To which Muskie replied, "I was
impressed. But I was also impressed by
what Egypt is doing." It was an
honest, if impolitic remark and it
reveals either a certain courage or a
certain inclination to be on both sides
of any question.
The reporters in Washington may
misjudge the man. His answers to their
questions may be the answers of a
deeply thoughtful man who sees
problems in the round and rejects
what he may regard as the too
But however his problem may be
defined, Muskie is not coming on as a
man with answers. He is not getting
much press attention and he is not
saying anything which makes party
leaders here stop and pay attention.
It is a difficult rcle to be a front
runner. If you take too strong
positions, you may have to change
them due to events. If you make
yourself too well-known, you make
enemies and people may grow tired of
you. But if you do what Muskie is now
doing, you do not look like a leader.
That is the Muskie malaise.
As one veteran California politician
puts it, "If he doesn't say something
pretty soon which establishes him is a
front runner, people are going to be
asking, 'Why should he be the front
runner?' "On the day they say that

A continuation would be
emphasis of race on admissions.
Would the administration accept
one person over another merely
because the chosen one marked
the minority group box? This
could be the combined effect of
the ASUN Senate's resolution
and the proposed enrollment
Third, I question the
implication of the phrase "at
least in proportion...", implying
that the correct percentage was
the minimum and anything more
would be better. If the
administration picks a professor
from a minority group and
pastes over several other possibly
better qualified majority group
Erofessors so they can point to
im and say that they don't
discriminate, that is hypocritical
and worse discrimination than
having an all-white faculty.
While minority groups have
been taken advantage of in the
past, I do not believe that
sufficient reason for them to
receive special privileges now.
