Among the notable races for
seats in the House was in Ohio's
23rd congressional district, where
incumbents ran. against . each
other: -Democrat Charles A. Vanik
and 83-year-old Republican Fran-
ces Bolton. Vanik won.
Vanik moved into Mrs. Bolton's
district because redistricting had
placed a preponderance of Negroes
in his old Cleveland district. As
expected, Louis Stokes, a brother
of Cleveland's Negro mayor, Carl
Stokes, won in the new district.
Negroes also won in new dis-
tricts in St. Louis and New York
City. Democrat William Clay be-

Robert Tindal and Anthony J.
Wierzbicki eked out narrow vic-
tories Tuesday in the race for the
two vacant seats on Detroit's
Common Council.
The balloting ended in a near
four-way tie. Less than two per
cent of the total vote separated'
Tindal and Wierzbicki from de-
feated candidates Blanche Parent1
Wise and David Eberhard.,
Other important Detroit races
ended in a resounding 3-2 defeat
of a school millage proposal, and
the approvals of a change in the
city's fire and police employe pen-
sion plans.
It had been speculated before
the Tuesday balloting that the
race for the council seats would be
a good indicator of the mood of
the city. Wierzbicki, former coun-
cilman and publisher of the now-
defunct Detroit American, has a
long established reputation as a
staunch conservative. Wise, also
a former council member, is con-
sidered equally conservative.
Eberhard and Tindal, on the
other hand, are both considered
liberals. Eberhard is a Lutheran
clergyman active in many neigh-
borhood projects on Detroit's
East Side, while Tindal is the
Executive Secretary of the De-
troit branch of the NAACP.
However, the narrow margins.
separating the candidates, and the
election of one liberal and one
conservative has made a clear
analysis of the mood, bf Detroit
voters nearly impossible.
Apparently, the four-way split
was basically due to voters who
voted for only one candidate to
try to insure his election.
Tindal becomes the second black
on the council, joining the Rev.
Nicholas Hood, who is currently
serving his first term. The council
is now split 5-4 in favor of the

millage operating proposal may
pose a serious problem to the
Board of Education-if not now,
certainly by next summer when a
new teacher's contract will have to
be negotiated.
The, proposal would have au-
thorized a 10 mill property tax in-
crease, effective through 1973.
Detroit teachers are expected to
demand at least a $1,500 annual
salary increase next year, since
Detroit's pay scale is at least that
far behind many suburban dis-

do your
contact lenses lead
a cleanlife?

Contact lenses can be
heaven . .. or hell. They
may be a wonder of
modern science but just
the slightest bit of dirt
under the lens can make
them unbearable. In
order to keep your con-
tact lenses as comforta-
ble and convenient as
they were designed to be,
you have to take care of
Until now you needed
two or more separate
solutions to properly pre-
pare and maintain your
contacts. You would
think that caring for con-
tacts should be as con-

because Lensine is an
"isotonic" solution,
which means that it
blends with the natural
fluids of the eye.
Cleaning your corkacts
with Lensine retards the
buildup of foreign de-
posits on the lenses. And
soaking your contacts in
Lensine between wear-
ing periods assures you
of proper lens hygiene.
You get a free soaking
case on the bottom of
every bottle of Lensine.
It has been demonstrated
that improper storage be-
tween wearings may
result in the growth of
bacteria on the lenses.
This is a sure cause of
eye irritation and in some
cases can endanger your
vision. Bacteria cannot
grow in Lensine which is
sterile, self-sanitizing,
and antiseptic.
Let your contacts be the
convenience they were
meant to be. Get some
Lensine, from the Murine
Company, Inc.
