DETROIT-The Detroit Pistons,
plagued with talk of unhappiness
toward Coach Dennis Butcher be-
fore the game, roared back in the
second half last night to beat the
Los Angeles Lakers 117-110.
It was the Pistons' first victory

scorer, rifled in 18 of his 29 points

Detroit leading by only two points,

tons ahead by 10 points and they

The Lakers played most of the
second half without their, all-star
guard Jerry West who suffered a
recurrence of a groin injury in the
third quarter after scoring 19
points during the first two quar-
ters. Elgin Baylor had 31 points

' Dear Pink-editor:
DThe Daily has once again shown a marked propensity for gross
misrepresentation of the facts. As has been demonstrated in the past,
the Daily is opinionated in a far left (out) position. Even considering
this, their guards are down and they cannot advance the literary,
ball across the line of scrimmage.
In an article written in, the sports section of Wednesday's paper,
the tacts expressed in a quote by one female fan were completely in
error. Said young lady, on being asked her opinion, the Daily Libels
"were tremendously funny." She thought it was the dry run practice
of the Michi-Fish. The ends split and tore down the field (they heard
that the girl's field hockey team was going to take the turf), and'it
was indeed a pity that those two Angell Elementary School students
got in the way of "Eric The Killer" because'he almost got hurt when
he hit the ground. If the true' facts are to be expressed, ask any of,
the tens of--thousands of fans who watched the Muggers masterly
exhibit the skills of football on Saturday. A prominent football coach
was there, and he just had one comment: "I hope the Libels chicken
. out, because if they don't they will be flattened out"

It was the second straight vic-

Howard Komives hit a 30-foot,
twisting jump shot with 11 seconds
showing on the clock to give the
New York Knicks a 114-112 vic-
tory over the Milwaukee Bucks in
a National Basketball Association
game last night.
The Bucks, down by 15 points in
the third period, capped their
comeback when Guy Rodgers put
in a .20-foot Jumper at :57 for a
110-409 Milwaukee lead.

IN 1964, President Johnson proposed the initia-
tion of a Great Society. Today, four years later,
we are reaping the results.
CURRENTLY, we are facing the worst inflation
since World War I1. In the last five years the
purchasing power of every American dollar has
dropped by 10 per cent. Mortgage interest rates
are at the highest level since the administration
of U. S. Grant. The chairman of the Federal Re-
serve Board calls our economic. crisis the worst
THE LEVEL OF CRIME has reached new heights.
Since 1960, crime has risen nine times as fast
as the population, and if the present rate con-
tinues the present level of crimes will double
by 1972. In Washington, D.C., alone, 1000
felonies per week were committed in the weeks
following the April riots, and the situation be-
came so bad that Washington, D.C., bus drivers
had to start using tokens instead of coins to
avoid being robbed.
OUR FOREIGN POLICY hasn't fared much bet-
ter. Today, we face the fact of being worse off
in every major area of the world than we were
in 1960. For five years the United States, the
most powerful nation in the world, has been in-
volved in a war of attrition with a small agrarian
country with still no definite end in sight; and
respect for America has fallen so low that a
fourth rate military power has felt at liberty to

he wants to do:
1. Use new Federal Tax in-

2. Foster "black capitalism,"
which means black prideand
progress - black ownership
of homes and new businesses.
3. Stop acting as if all the
answers are in Washington.
Return to the cities a larger,
fairer share of the wealth
they produce so the cities
can better meet their own
4. Develop new Federal and
local educational programs
to provide every child in Am-

THESE ARE THE RESULTS of the policies which Lyndon Johnson initiated and which Hubert
Humphrey has pledged to continue. America can not afford to experience four more years of
failure, it needs the change in direction which Nixon can provide.
A RECENT DETROIT NEWS poll showed Nixon leading Humphrey. in Michigan by only one per-
centage point. Michigan is"a crucial state and every effort is going to be needed to carry it for
