The league says of Ford, "He has resisted virtually every environmental initiative taken by the Congress and offered none of his own." Of Reagan, it criticizes his antagonism to any sort of planning although it admits that attitude led him to kill several of California's "most costly and destructive" water projects. Of Carter as governor of Georgia, it says, "He was consistently ahead of his state legislature and the bulk of his constituents" in efforts to establish needed environmental programs.
A RINGY-DINGY TO YOU
In case you feel that your phone bill isn't quite as big as it ought to be, you can rectify that soon if an idea that Michigan Bell developed keeps spreading around the country. The Michigan phone company put out a "decorator model" phone in the maize-and-blue colors of the University of Michigan when the Wolverines went to the Orange Bowl last winter. Indiana Bell picked up on the idea after the Indiana University basketball team went through the 1975-76 season unbeaten and took the NCAA championship. The Hoosier phone comes in cream and crimson and also includes a team picture, a university logo and a map of the U.S. with a No. 1 printed on it.
