Districts Four and Five will be without candidates for the upcoming election, and District Three only has two candidates. That means the president may have to appoint seven representatives. Also, Becky Gibson. District Three representative candidate, said Sunday night she thinks she will drop out of the race because she will not be living in District Three next year. A winner Jackson beats Dukakis in Isabella caucus with help from University There are 16 representative positions. Each of the five districts has three representatives.

District Five includes Saxe, Herrig, Woldt and Emmons residence halls and Forum and Huntington apartments. District Four includes Merrill, Sweeney„. Beddow and Thorpe residence halls and Washington. Kewadin, Western Island and ■ Please See REPS Page 12 by BRYAN G. LAVIOLETTE LIFE Staff Writer The Rev. Jesse Jackson's Michigan victory Saturday against Massachusetts Gov. Michael Dukakis and the rest of the Democrats was the biggest victory of the Democratic primary season. He also won in Isabella County. Jackson, a Baptist minister from Illinois, got 321 votes in Isabella County, compared to Dukakis' 308, County Democratic Chairwoman Linda Mason said. — Mason said it is not possible to say how many delegates each candidate won in Isabella County because the delegates are proportioned by congressional district. Isabella County is part of the 10th Congressional District, which has a total of five delegates allotted to it. There will be a district convention at CMU May 7 to designate delegates. Mason said a total of 7f>5 people %-oted, which is more than her early expectations. Only about 400 people voted in 1984. There was a lot of interest, a lot more than last time." Mason said. The county had two voting places, one in Weidman and one at the Isabella County Building, 200 N. Main. The University population had a great deal to do with Jackson's Isabella County win. Mason said. She said although many students are not registered in the county to vote, some were able to vote. Also. University professors had a big effect on the vote.

Ozone is a form of oxygen which is poisonous if breathed in large quantities at ground level. It makes life possible on earth by- blocking harmful ultraviolet rays from the sun at high altitudes. It occurs in an atmospheric layer at heights of approximately 20 to 30 miles The Environmental Protection Agency has estimated every 1 percent decline inozoneoverhead means an eventual increase in skin cancer of 5 to 6 percent. A recent report on ozone concentrations shows a decline in the ozone layer almost is certainly the result of human use of ozone- destroying chemicals. That report was made by National Aeronautics and Space Administration panel members. Dennis Machnik, assistant professor of physics, said though the entire mechanism of what keeps the ozone layer at its present level is not yet understood, ozone is continually produced in nature and could repair itself eventually if given a chance "The actual cause of the thinning has not been proven, hut we know we have upset the delicate balance."
