two-vote edge in the House.
Romney contributed to the Li-
cata effort. Despite a leg ailment,
he stumped with Licata last Sat-
urday. Each Republican in Lica-
ta's distrivt heard a taped phone
message and received a personnel
letter from Romney.
Help for Licata's staff came
from Republicans outside the dis-
trict who phoned and drove their
voters to the polls. Perhaps most
important of all, the voters them-
selves had been brought into the
Action Team even before Romney
came to Lansing. Beginning with
a 1958 voter-identification pro-
gram, Republicans developed per-
sonal contacts with supporters and
independents in the largely Demo-
cratic neighborhood.
While such tactics are not new
to politics, the Republicans em-
phasized them only recently. They
were effective enough to give
Licata a 158 vote margin. Each
Republican and many independ-
ents were contacted at least three
times: with the two Romney mes-
sages and by at least one visit
from Licata.
Throughout the campaign, Li-
cata's staff avoided Democrats.
"We were afraid that if we triedI
to persuade them to vote for us,
they'd still vote against us," ex-
plained one precinct worker: "We
hoped that the Democrats would- !
n't inform their voters and that
the publicity would be light. In
both cases were we lucky."

Allot Funds
Also approved was a measure
granting the SA power to allot
funds to student organizations.
Another change approved yes-
terday by the CSA will allow stu-
dents to file minority reports with
Faculty Council decisions.
The CSA also granted the chair-
man of the student body authority
to appoint student members to all
universitycommittees with the ad-
vice 'and consent of the SA. But
the CSA tabled for next week a
provision requiring each member
of all OSU committees to file

Set Local High School. Meeting
To Stimulate Draft Discussion

A program designed to stimulate
discussion about the draft among
Ann Arbor residents is tentatively
being planned for June 12, ac-
cording to Barry Bluestone, Grad,
a member of Citizens for New
Politics (CNP).
Bluestone said that the purpose
of the meeting, to be sponsored by
the CNP, will be to acquaint high
school students and their families
with the immediacy of the draftI

and provide them through a pan-
el discussion with a broad spec-
trum of opinions on draft ques-
tions. He added that the meeting
could be the kickoff point for a
continuous draft counseling pro-
gram in Ann Arbor.
Gregory Fox, an Ann Arbor High
School student participating in the
planning of the program, indicated
that it will not be designed to en-
courage draft resistance. However,
he said that if enough interest is
generated such a resistance move-

ment could be organized among
high school students next year.
A letter announcing the meet-
ing is currently being drafted. It
will be sent to all male and fe-
male high school seniors in the
city. Several high school students
have expressed interest in the past
few weeks in stimulating discus-
sion about the draft within the
high schools, Fox said.
The meeting has tentatively
been planned for Ann ArborHigh
School, although the school has
not yet given its approval. How-
ever, Fox pointed out that the
high school may be obligated to
give approval, since it allows such
groups as the John Birch Society
to use its facilities.
A stronger anti-draft movement
is already underway at two Lans-
ing-area high schools. The move-
ment is an outgrowth of Michigan
State University's chapter of Stu-
dents for a Democratic Society
and is called the Anti-Draft Un-
ion. It is designed to stimulate dis-
cussion of the draft on the high
school level, according to Ed Les-
sen, an SDS member who partici-
pated in the forming of the union.
Lessen was reported in an article
in the Michigan State News as
saying that the change in draft
laws will force the decision about
military service upon high school
graduates. He said that the com-
mon element of the union is strong
philosophic objection to the Viet-
nam war and the draft system.
