Political Extremists
Defeated In Primary

epublican Congressman
Mark Siljander's (Three
Rivers) loss to challenger
Fred Upton was the main sur-
prise in Tuesday's primary elec-
tion.
Upton attributed his success
to Siljander's refusal to debate
him and what may have been
the fundamentalist Christian
Congressman's biggest gaffe:
circulating a tape to local cler-
gymen, urging them to "break .
the back of Satan" by working
for a Siljander victory.
In the governor's races,
Wayne County Executive
William Lucas defeated busi-
nessman Dick Chrysler in the
Republican primary, while Gov.
James Blanchard handily de-
feated Lyndon LaRouche fol-
lower Henry Wilson in the
Democratic primary, receiving
97 percent of the vote.
With the vote count still unof-
ficial at press time, it was be-
lieved that none of the
LaRouche candidates running
for office in Michigan were
elected. Oakland County Demo-
cratic Party officials expressed
pleasure at the LaRoucheites'
poor showing at the polls.
In other elections of interest:
Democrat Sander Levin was
renominated in the 17th U.S.
Congressional District, easily
defeating his LaRouche oppo-
nent Robert Bell. Levin will face
Republican candidate Calvin
Williams in the general election
in November.
Republican
Incumbent
Richard Fessler (West Bloom-
field) was victorious over Hugh
Brotherton in the 17th District
for the State Senate.

In nominations for the State
House, Democratic incumbent
Maxine Berman was leading
Jeffrey Swinkin in Southfield.
In Oakland County Commis-
sioner's races, Oak Park incum-
bent Dennis Aaron defeated
Norman Goldman, incumbent
Alexander Perinoff won a four-
way race in Southfield's 21st
district.
Jessica Cooper and Lawrence
Ternan were nominated to Oak-
land County Circuit Court. In
the 46th District Court in
Southfield, Stephen Cooper and
Eugene Friedman were nomi-
nated for one seat, and incum-
bent Susan Moiseev and former
judge James Clarkson were
nominated to the second seat.
Elections for Republican pre-
cinct delegates caused some con-
fusion among voters. Elected
delegates will attend a state
convention which will choose
Michigan's delegates to the Re-
publican National Convention in
1988. Delegate candidates did
not have to specify which
presidential hopeful they would
support at the state convention.
In addition, the candidates'
presidential preferences were
not listed on the ballots, so that
voters often did not know the
positions of the candidates for
whom they voted.
The Michigan primary re-
ceived national attention as a
test of popularity of Republican
presidential hopefuls, but some
analysts feel the results may be
too unclear to draw meaningful
conclusions.
Various voting exit surveys
indicated that .most Michigan
Republican voters support Vice
President George Bush for
president. New York Con-
gressman Jack Kemp is second
in popularity, with evangelist
Pat Robertson trailing at a dis-
tant third place.

THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

Beersheva, Israel — A team of
scientists at Ben-Gurion Univer-
sity of the Negev is one of the few
in the world to be concerned with
the reactivation of the arms, par-
ticularly those of a person
paralyzed in both the arms and
legs. Thanks to this research into
the use of upper limbs of quadrip-
legics, such people will no longer
be totally dependent on others for
feeding, operation of a wheel-
chair, turning on a television set
or answering a telephone.
The basis for the team's work,
headed by Dr. Roger Nathan,
who recently came to Israel from
England, is development of a
mathematical model of the
structure of arm muscles and the
mapping of their basic move-
ments.
The activation of muscles to
carry out certain movements is
achieved by a computerized elec-
trode system in which the elec-
trodes are connected to stimula-
tion points in the muscles. Elec-
trical impulses imitating those of
the brain are then transmitted by

programming computer to each
muscle taking part in the move-
ment.
In laboratory experiments on
healthy people, between 20 and
24 muscles in the arm and hand
have been stimulated in this way.
The uniqueness of the Israeli
research is the development and
use of very thin electrodes, each
controlling separate muscles to
achieve complex and delicate
movements. The first objective of
the research activity which
started 18 months ago at Tel
Hashomer Hospital rehabilita-
tion unit (which treats 90 percent
of all Israelis with spinal dam-
age) is to achieve hand-to-mouth
movements. Within two years the
team hopes to produce a pro-
totype of a miniature computer
which can be installed on a.
wheelchair.
The work of Dr. Nathan's team
is funded in part by "Operation
Wheelchair," a British group
which finances auxiliary devices
for Israel's war wounded.
