end to "fast-draw" trials in crimi-
nal cases have been urged by Sid-
ney M. Shevitz, veteran Detroit

dorsements from the Wayne Coun-
ty AFL-CIO and five Democratic
congressional districts.
He has been personally endorsed
by Detroit area colleagues of the

mer vice president and - general

tion" of St. Cyprian's Protestant
Episcopal Church; the "Distin-
guished Service to the Community"
award of the Detroit Workmen's
Circle; and the "Amity Award" of

Elliot Beitner Runs
for Recorder's Court

Elliot I. Beitner, a candidate for
judge of Recorder's Court (short
term) was rated "well-qualified"
by the judicial selection commit-
tee of the Detroit Bar Association.
This rating was the highest given
to any candidate seeking only the
short term Recorder's Court office.
Beitner, who received a juris
doctor degree from the Wayne
State University Law School in
1957, was editor-in-chief of the
Wayne Law Review and graduated
first in his class.
After graduation, he practiced
law with the labor law firm of
Zwerdling & Zwerdling. In 1958-60
he served as an assistant prosecut-
ing attorney for Wayne County.
He has also served as an instruc-
tor in legal research at Wayne
State University and as a profes-

Mrs. Bronstein
Pokes Much Fun
in Election Book

Mrs. Yetta Bronstein is a clever
lady. She has entered politics—in
a literary form—and she is pro-
viding much hilarious reading in
her book, "The President I Almost
Was," published by Hawthorn
Books (70 5th, NY11).
Here we have a combination of
satire, a form of campaigning that
has drawn in all her neighbors and
friends, the poking of fun at voters
and office-seekers.
Mrs. Bronstein hasn't left out
anyone. She is after Johnson's job,
she communicates with Barry Gold-
water, she draws in Nixon.
She offers a platform and here
is- what she proposes in thousands
of pamphlets after finding "a cheap
Independent candidate in 1964
Mrs. Bronstein's platform.:
1. Lowering voting age to 19.
2. Better government
3. Fluoridation
4. National bingo
5. Sex Education
6. Stronger government
R. I. of Detroit says: I plan to vote
for Mrs. Bronstein as President in
November because this country
needs a good housewife, a woman
leader and a strong mother.
Then, as a footnote to the let-
ter, under an asterisk, Mrs. Bron-
stein explains in her campaign
"R. I. is my cousin Reuben the-
stein from Detroit, but he asked
me not to use his name on the-leaf-
let because he lives in Grosse
Pointe, Mich., a rich section, and
the neighbors all think he is a
And so down the line Mrs. Bron-
stein pokes at all, draws laughs,
writes letters, quotes replies.
From beginning to end, there
are many laughs in this book. It's
the work of a smart lady who runs
a campaign in a book and thereby
will delight candidates who seek
lighter vein in their tense efforts
to win.
