Crucial MayoralRace Ma Shape Republican


The outcome of today's mayoral
contest in New York City may
decisively determine the imme-
diate future of the Republican
Party and the two-party system
in this country.
The colorful three-way race has
been dominated by the- efforts of
Conservative candidate William F.
Buckley Jr., 39, to draw votes
away from John V. Lindsay, the
attractive 43-year-old candidate

of the Republican and Libel al
parties. Buckley contends that
Lindsay has been disloyal to the
Republican party by refusing to
support GOP Presidential candi-
date Barry Goldwater last year
and by accepting the support of

the New York state Liberal party,
a small offshoot of the Democratic
party which runs its own can-
didates in some city and state
contests while usually supporting
Democratic candidates in others.
Buckley, editor of the right-
wing magazine National Review,
and intellectual spokesman of the
conservative movement has con-
ducted a campaign highlighted by
acidly witty onslaughts against
both Lindsay and Democratic can-
didate Abraham Beame, 59, city
comptroller under outgoing Demo-
cratic Mayor Robert F. Wagner.
Lindsay's campaign has centered
upon a series of white papers
detailing his plans for dealing
with the city's worst problems,
which include deteriorating hous-
ing, lack of water, air pollution,
congested and antiquated public

transportation, a soaring crime!
rate, high sales taxes, worsening1
Negro and Puerto Rican ghettoes,i
overcrowded, unequipped hospitals;
and fiscal confusion.
He has also attacked Buckley for
allegedly appealing to racist,r
"Nazi-like" sentiments. Buckley
has advocated that some of thet
city's poor residents who are on
relief should be moved out of theI
city to "rehabilitation camps." Het
also has advocated quarantining
drug addicts "outside the city,
perhaps on one of the largish is-1
lands." 1
Lindsay has attacked Beame for
his acceptance of support from
Democratic party bosses such as
Charles Buckley of the Bronx,I
Stanley Steingut of Brooklyn, and
Harlem's Congressman A d a mc
Clayton Powell.<

Beame has conducted his cam-'
paign on the premise that he is
the only candidate with the neces-
sary experience to lead the mu-
nicipal government. He has also
appealed to party loyalty and has
claimed that, if he is elected, he
wil be able to use his influence
to gain additional federal funds
for the city under the war on
poverty program. Beame received
the endorsement. of President

Prof. Roy L. Steinheimer Jr., of the Law School, an admis-
sions officer of that school, has returned from a two week trip
South to investigate the possibilities of recruiting Negro students
to study law at the University. Last night he spoke to the board
of directors of the Law School about his trip.
His trip is the first definitive step by the Law School, which
had been thinking of it for several years, ,in their desire to
establish a "continuous program" in which these schools would
encourage Negro students to come to the University to study law.
He said they do not know how many students will be enter-
ing and that only four or five students from each of the five
schools he visited were interested. He explained that the op-
portunities for Negroes in business is increasing down South
and that "coming here has not as much appeal as one might
Although the outlook is discouraging, he said "over the
longer pull the possibility is still there," and once Negro students
started coming here, feedback woud enhance the appeal here.
Councilman Richard E. Balzhiser asked at last night's
council meeting that a report be given the council by the Policej
Department on the use of narcotics on the campus. Balzhiser re-
ferred in his statement to an article in the Daily on the use of
marijuana on the campus. He said that upon a first reading of
the article he questioned its authenticity and believed it to be
based on hearsay, but "after talking to a few people, I feel its
allegations may well be substantiated," he said.
Mayor Wendell E. Hulcher strongly refuted a statement by
George F. Lemble of the Citizen's Committee On Housing, last
night, which contended that Hulcher was considering two known
opponents of the newly-established housing commission for
appointment to that body.
Lemble spoke before the council last night and said that
Hulcher was considering former Mayor Cecil O. Creal and former
Mayor Pro Tempore Bent F. Nielson for positions on the five-
man commission.
Hulcher said that he would announce his appointments at
next Monday's council meeting.

The Veterans of Ann Arbor and W'ashtenaw County were
granted a permit by city council last night to hold a parade in
honor of the veterans in this area and "in retaliation for the
anti-Viet Nam demonstrators that we have had to disgustingly
observe," according to their statement.
The parade, the first in this area supporting U.S. policy,
will be held Thursday, Nov. 11. The Veterans of New York
sponsored a similar parade in New York City last Sunday in
which 20,000 people took part.

The ratio of out-of-state to
in-state students in- this year's
freshman and sophomore classes!
has fallen three per cent from last
year's total, it was disclosed in
figures released yesterday by the
Registrar's office. Further, it was
disclosed that the University has
reached a new all-time high "resi-
dent credit" enrollment of 31,267.
In the '64 fall semester, out-of-
state students represented 29 per
cent of the two-class total of 8,-

I Daily Texan, student newspaper at
the University of Texas at Austin,
is presently being closely examin-
ed by the University Board of
Regents who reportedly want
tighter editorial control.The Re-
gents are working with a special
committee of 12 Texas editors.
The controversy was spurred by
an editorial printed early last
week, in which staff writer Jean
Estinger wrote that American forc-
es "will be continuing to fire on
villages of women and children in
Viet Nam."
At a meeting of prominent edi-
tors held last Saturday, Erwin ,

of the total 9,328.
Thus while the two-class to-
tal has risen by over 1200 stu-
dents in the period of a year,
the number of out-of-state stu-
dents has increased by only 146.
Constant Ratio
The overall ratio of out-of-state
"in resident" students, however,a
has remained constant at last
year's figure of 27 per cent. Allan

Campaign Headquarters

In addition to the "gripe line,"
another phone will be in use at
