Raphael Eytan, a 45-year-old
paratroop commander, as-
sumed command of Israel's
northern front Monday, re-
placing Gen. Mordechai Gur,
whose appointment as chief
of staff became effective
midnight Sunday.
Eytan was born in Tel
Adashim, a Hashomer Hat-
zair settlement in the Jez-
reel Valley. His military
career closely paralleled that
of Gur.
He joined Palmach at age
17, participated in Israel's
war for independence, vol-
unteered for the army's first
paratroop unit and fought at
the Mitla Pass in the 1956
Sinai campaign.
Eytan commanded a para-
troop brigade that pierced
Egyptian lines and reached
the Suez Canal in the Six-
Day War. He was severely
wounded in that campaign
but recovered and has since
held senior command posts.
During the Yom Kippur
War, he commanded a di-
vision that helped contain the
Syrian attack on the Golan
Heights and drove Syrian
forces back to the outskirts
of Damascus.

State Sen. Jack Faxon
announced his candidacy
Wednesday for the U.S.
House of Representatives
from the 17th Congressional
District. Sen. Faxon, a Dem-
ocratic legislator for the past
10 years, hopes to fill the
seat vacated by the retire-
m e n t of Congresswoman
Martha Griffiths.
In 1961, at age 25, Faxon
was elected as a delegate to
the Michigan Constitutional
Convention. In 1964, he de-
feated an incumbent in a
Democratic primary for state
representative and became
active in defense of citizen
participation in education.
In 1967, Faxon was selec-
ted by the Eagleton Institute
of Rutgers University as one
of the two outstanding legis-
lators in Michigan. In 1970,
he defeated a 16-year legisla_
tive veteran for the office of
state senator.
Congress Candidates
State Representative Bill
Brodhead called for a liberal-
conservative coalition to end
the deadlock over welfare re-
form in a campaign "coffee"
Saturday night at the home
of Mr. and Mrs. Victor Ross
of Saratoga Drive in South-
field. Thirty Southfield resi-
dents attended the meeting
to hear Brodhead, who is
seeking the Democratic nomi-

nation for Congress in the
17th District.
James Blanchard, Demo-
cratic candidate for Congress
in the 18th District, Tuesday
proposed a five-point pro-
gram aimed at closing the
loopholes in congressional
conflict of interest laws.
Blanchard, a former state
assistant attorney general,
made the proposal before the


Oak Park Democratic Club.
Schultz for Congress
Lawrence Schultz, a 30-
year-old Troy attorney, an-
nounced his candidacy for
the Democratic nomination
for the 18th District Con-
gressional seat.
In his announcement,
Schultz bitterly denounced
"the great oil rip-off of the
American people." He said,
"I find it highly immoral that
the American people are be-
ing asked to 'bite the bullet'
in regards to oil prices and
availability when the oil com-
panies are making such gi-
gantic profits."
Kelly in Senate Race
Ferndale's Michael G. Kel-
ly announced that he will be
a Democratic candidate for
the State Senate in the new
16th Senatorial district.
Kelly started 15 years ago
in Local 525 where he worked
to bring about a trust fund
program which became a pi-
lot program for the country.
He also formed and was
elected to chair the health
and welfare committee and
then went on to Contract Ne-
