▪ Gitlins' Appeal:
`Return Miriani
to the Council'

"In the best interests of our
community, it is vital that Louis
C. Miriani be returned to the
Common Council, Dr. Charles
Gitlin and Esther
Gitlin urged in
an appeal issued
this week.
The Gitlins,
long-time friends
of the former
councilman a n d

that they have
organized a com-
mittee to work
for Miriani's
"Our campaign
is in the cause
of good govern-
Miriani merit," Dr. and

Miriani is the most experienced of
all. We need him in the Council

Grand Jury Probe
on 'Fix' Object of
Gordon Petition

Lou Gordon, practicing Detroit
attorney and candidate for Traffic
Court judge, filed a petition in cir-
cuit Court for a grand jury in-
vestigation into the Wayne COun-
ty Sheriff's Road Patrol-fixing
scandal. The petition was delayed
for decision upon the request of
Attorney General Frank Kelley.
This is probably the first time
in legal history that a citizen has
filed for a grand jury. Gordon's
petition was based upon informa-
tion from the admissions of the
sheriff's deputies who fixed traf-
fic tickets.
Gordon said he filed the petition
as a concerned citizen and can-
didate for Traffic Court judge who
is vitally interested in traffic
Gordon's complaint alleged that
the whole process of law enforce-
ment in Wayne County, as it
relates to traffic -laws, is in
jeopardy by the violations which
have been illegally sponged from
the records of the court.

Blanche Parent Wise Warns
Against Assessment Increases

All Congressional
Districts, Civic, Labor,
Business Groups



Blanche Parent Wise, seeking
a return to the Detroit Common
Council where she served for
eight years previously, charges
that the proposed increase in
assessments on homes built before
1942, only nominal, would affect
not only city taxes but would con-
stitute actually a three-way in-
crease. She reminded voters that
the county tax and the school tax
are based on city assess valuations.
Mrs. Wise believes that prop-
erty owners, who so long have
borne the bulk of the tax burden,
deserve some reduction of their
heavy load, especially when an
income tax is imposed.
