"We already have, 'All power
to the people.' It's just a ques-
tion of when we're going to
learn to use it," Zolton Ferency,
Democratic gubernatorial can-
didate in 1966, told a gathering
of Ann Arbor Democrats last
night at the Ann Arbor Public
The evening was devoted to a
presentation and discussion of
the Michigan Democratic Party
Political Reform Commission.
The commission - chaired by
William Haber, special assistant
to the executive officers of the
University-was formed by the
state Democratic party to rec-
ommend reform in the state po-
litical system.
The panel, moderated by local
Democrat Mark Ross, consisted
of Ferency; Walter Schneider,
chairman of the Ann Arbor
Democratic Party; and Robert
Dwyer, the chairman of the sec-
ond congressional district Dem-
ocratic Party. Wes Vivian, for-
mer congressman from this dis-
trict was scheduled to appear
but was absent due to illness.
The report was described by
the two local Democratic of-
ficials who are both members of
the commission.
Schneider presented a broad
outline of the commission's re-
port and dealt with it as a
means to "bring the American
political system up to date."
He outlined the report's con-
cern with the right to vote. Point-
ing out that individuals in pris-
ons or jails are denied sufferageI
while incarcerated regardless of
whether they had been convict-
ed of a crime, he emphasized thej
need to extend the franchise to
all Americans, including eigh-
Schneider described the con-
cept of a "membership assem-
bly" on a local level with "real
power" and stressed the impor-
tance of the "one man one vote"
principle. He went on to de-
lineate the system of propor-
tional representation proposed

in the report and the "long-
overdue" demise of the unit
rule on a national level.
A major portion of the report
as Schneider described it is de-
voted to a proposal for a presi-
dential primary in Michigan.
District party chairman Dwy-
er described the Democratic
party as being the party where
the "heat is," "Nobody wvent
down to Miami to harass them"
(the Republicans), he added,
referring to the demonstrations
at the Democratic National Con-
vention in Chicago in August
After the major recommenda-
tions of the report were de-
scribed, Ferency-who said he
was not a member of the com-
mission and not familiar with
its report--gave some initial cri-
tical reactions.
"The Haber Commission ig-
nores some fundamental ques-
tions," Ferency said. "What is
the purpose of a political party?
Why a political party?" he
"The form follows the func-
tion," Ferency added, emphasiz-

ing the need to define goal be-

Ferency attacked the role

litical party, To most elected
officials, he said, "The primary
