Give Views
On Election
Four University professors said
yesterday on a radio broadcast
that the Republicans will have to
find some liberal candidates to win
in 1960.
Professor Preston W. Slosson of
the history department, and Pro-
fessors Henry L. Bretton and John
P. White of the political science
department participated in the
broadcast on WUOM, University
radio station. Prof. Bretton served
as moderator for the "Background"
In an interview apart from the
broadcast, Prof. George A. Peek of
the political science department
said, "If the Republicans want to
win in 1960, they will have to do it
with candidates from the Wilkie-
Dewey-Eisenhower wing."
Make Predictions
Prof. White and Prof. Bretton
said that in 1960 Vice-President
Richard M Nixon may be cast as
Senator Robert A. Taft and Nelson
Rockefeller cast as President
Dwight D. Eisenhower-the great
vote getter who is not so popular
with the organization, but is more
popular with the public.
Prof. Slosson said that on the
Democratic sides there will be
about a dozen favorite sons who
were successful in past elections,
and that the new congress will be
largely composed of the Demo-
cratic party, and will be liberal in
its policies.
There may even be an attempt
to revise the Senate rule pertaining
to the filibuster in order to pass
civil rights legislation, he contin-
To Make Attempt
"The Northern and Western
Democrats, who have been elected,
are likely to insist on a successful
attempt to enact civil rights legis-
lation," Prof. White said.
Prof. Peek said that although
there may be a fight on the fili-
buster in the Senate, he doesn't
expect the liberals to win.
Legislative measures which the
various professors foresee include
a financiai assistance to depressed
areas, su~ch as the Upper Penin-
Prof. Peek said, "in the last
Congress, this bill was vetoed by
President Eisenhower, and a num-
ber of Republican congressmen
thought that the veto hurt them
in the election."
To Act on Aid
Prof. Slosson and Prof. White
said that the legislation will act
on federal aid to education and
also labor legislation.
They all agreed that the foreign
aid expenditures will pobably
continue at a fairly high level and
that taxes will remain heavy due
to increased expenditures, All
agreed that the recession issue
affected voting behavior through-
out the country.
Following the program, Prof.
Bretton said, "In order for the
Republican Party to become the
majority party in the United
States, it must generate an appeal
to the independents."
. "I think the election results
should spell out a need for the
local Republican Party in Wash-
tenaw County to find more attrac-
tive and progressive candidates,"
he concluded.

JAIL ADDITION--One proposed addition to the County Jail would be built on this lot adjacent
to the jail. The new building would be used for administrative offices, according to Washtenaw
County Sheriff Robert A. Lillie. The other possible plan before the County Board of Supervisors
would be to construct two more stories on top of the present structure.
on o Build Additional Jail Space


The county will build either a
two-story addition or a separate
building with the funds authorized
to build more jail space, Wash-
tenaw County's Sheriff Robert A.
Lillie said yesterday.
The County Board of Supervisors
he said, has the choice of building
a two-story addition on top of
the present building or purchasing
the lot on the corner of Main
and Ann St., building an adminis-
tration building there and con-
verting the present structure into
jail space.
In theory, Sheriff Lillie said, the
whole west end of the jail is given
over to sheriff's quarters as is
required by state law, but we have
to use parts of it for other purposes
Forced Vote
The vote on construction was
forced this fall by a court order
requiring the county to ship sur-
plus prisoners to jails outside the
county. The order was given at
the request of the State Jail In-
spector because of the fact that
the jail has frequently held more
than 20 prisoners above its capa-
The jail's capacity is that of 69
male and six female prisoners. Ac-
cording to the county supervisors
the jail has been averaging more
than 90 prisoners during the
month with peak loads on week-
ends in the neighborhood of 100.
"we rarely are anywhere near
the authorized number," Sheriff
Robert A. Lillie said yesterday.
"We averaged 87 in October, 85
in September, 95 in August and
81 in July."
Houses 110
Sheriff Lillie said that last
weekend the jail housed 110 pris-
oners for various offenses.
"Part of our weekend load," he
explained, "comes from the prac-
tice of county judges allowing cer-
tain prisoners to serve their sen-
tences on weekends."
These are prisoners convicted of
minor offenses who have wives
and families who would be inno-

cently hurt if the sentence was to
be served in one lump, he said.
"The judges sometimes allow them
to serve two days at a time on
the weekend until they have been
confined for the full term of their
Lists Price
If the county were to build the
addition to the top of the present
building it would cost a minimum
of $25,000 per year for the addi-
tional personnel needed, Sheriff
Lillie said, plus requiring an ele-
vator which would cost another.
$60,000 to $80,000.
He pointed out the advantages
of expanding "laterally" enabling
the further expansion of both
administrative and detention sec-
Tunnel Possible.
With the addition built apart
from the present jail and close to
the County Building it would be
possible to construct a tunnel con-
necting the buildings and bringing
heat to the jail. "This would give
us that much more room for cells,"
he said.
It would also eliminate much of

the inconvenience and danger of
transporting persons to court.
The jail construction, whichever
plan is used, will be financed by a
three-fourth mill tax increase on
county property. This tax is above
the 15 mill rate allowed by county
Cost High
The cost of transporting prisoni-
ers out of the county to other
jails would have been ruinously
expensive according to the Super-
visors report.
The basis of their figuring was
on the assumption that the jail
had a surplus of 20 prisoners
which, they say "is conservative."
The yearly cost of maintaining
these prisoners at jails outside
the county would be $21,900 plus
the cost of a minimum of two of-
ficers to transport them. The sal-
aries of the officers plus travel
expenses would be a minimum of
$12,000 per year.
County Administrator Carl
Johnson explained that plans for
the two-story addition are now
complete and preliminary plans
for the separate building are now
being finished.
