Performances by two Soviet pro-
fessional entertainment groups in
the Detroit area next week will be
picketed by Soviet Jewry activists.
Members of the Detroit Soviet
Jewry Committee of the Jewish
Community Council will carry signs
and distribut leaflets next Thursday
night at the Windsor performance of
the Kiev Symphony. Christian lead-
ers and the DSJC are scheduled to
appear outside Masonic Temple au-
ditorium in downtown Detroit for
next weekend's performances of the
Moiseyev Dance Company.
The Moiseyev, one of the world's
leading folkdance groups, was the

last-minute changes in the one-sided
Michigan governor's race. Big leads
in the public opinion polls do not
usually reduce voter turnout, says
Oakland County Clerk Lynn D. Al-
len, but after voters cast their bal-
lots in the state-wide races, their at-
tention will shift to local proposi-
tions and the judicial elections.
Allen predicts a 60-percent voter
turnout in Oakland County. The
polls (showing a big lead for Blan-
chard) could cause a drop off if vot-
ers become apathetic. All that plays
a part. But our history shows a
57-61 percent turnout" in non-
presidential election years.
