Speculation Starts on Candidates for Regent

C k :k

By PATRICIA O'DONOHUE
Every even-numbered. year the
terms of two Regents end and
in the November elections the
voters elect two Regents for the
next eight years. This year 'the
terms of Regent Irene Murphy
and Carl Brablec end, and during
the summer public speculation
tried to decipher behind-the-
scenes maneuvering for the nomi-
nations for Regent.
Brablec, a Republican, decided
last summer not to run for re-
election. Mrs. Murphy, one of
three Democrats on the Board,
had not officially made up her
mind by the end of July, but

sources in the Democratic party
indicated that rumors she would
not run would probably turn out
to be untrue.
Democratic party officials felt
it was important for Mrs. Murphy
to stay on the Board and take
part in the decision on the Uni-
versity's next president. They al-
so felt she could be re-elected.
And so in the Democratic party,
most of the speculation was on
who would get the nomination for
Brablec's seat.
The names mentioned by a top
official in the Democratic party
were:
Theodore Sachs, the lawyer for

August Scholle in the Scholle vs.
Hart reapportionment case in the
Supreme Court; Joseph Collins,
president of Wayne National Life:
William Patrick Jr., legal coun-
sel for Michigan Bell Telephone
Company; Robert Nederlander,
executive of the Nedelander Com-
pany, which owns several theatres
including the Fisher Theatre, and
Norman Krandell, an executive
with the Ford Motor Company,
and president of Krandell Jewel-
ry Company.
However, when asked about
their candidacies:
-Sachs said he was not at
the time (July) campaigning for
the nomination, although he said
he had been approached by many
people but had not made a deci-
sion on the matter;
-Patrick said he was not a
candidate, adding that he "was
not ascending to that great hon-
or";

Krandall and Nederlander were
unavailable for comment but evi-
dently were not being seriously
considered.
This leaves Collins, who is ac-
tively campaigning for a nomina-
tion that many people feel may
already be Sachs', regardless of
his non-committal stance.
Collins has written letters to
prominent members of the party
saying that he was seeking their
"consideration of my becoming
one of the party's candidates for
that position (of Regent). I feel
that my experience in politics,
government and business will en-
able me to make not only a con-
tribution to the University and
the state, if I am elected, but also
to the party during the 1966
allow me to make a contribution
campaign."
Yet Sachs seems to have more
behind him than Collins. Many
people within the party feel the

question may already have been
decided in Sachs' favor.
Adelaide Hart. vice-chairman of
the Democratic party in the state,
said "Sachs is respected by all
segments of the party." Other
sources refer to him as "Gus
Scholle's candidate." This is im-
portant if true, for Scholle, presi-
dent of the state AFL-CIO, car-
ries a lot of weight in the party.
Collins, on the other hand,
when Democratic. state chairman
in 1962-63, was apparently caught
in the conflicting currents of
state politics.
For one thing, observers say,
Collins' predecessor was Neil
Staebler, who was "vastly more
competent." Also, mounting frus-
tration within the party after
John B. Swainson lost the guber-
natorial race was directed at
those on top.
The Republican camp has ex-
perienced no "Regent rumblings"
yet according to Charles Orlebeke,
special advisor to the governor.
He said that "things are fluid at
the moment" and that there has
not been much activity.
Lawrence Lindemer and Ink
White have been mentioned as
because they had been considered
possible Republican candidates
for the appointment to the va-
cancy left by Eugene Power's res-
ignation, but there was no official
comment.
Elly Peterson, chairman of the
state Republican Central Commit-
tee, said that there is an educa-
tional committee reviewing candi-
dates but that nothing definite
has been released. She said that
the party is presently concerned
with the primary fights and has
not done much about the Regent
issue.
