An Editorial..
WE ENDORSE Congressman Weston E. Vivian for re-election
in the Second Congressional District.
The issues in the race between write-in "peace" candidate
Elise Boulding, Republican State Representative Marvin Esch and
Democrat Vivian are complex. A decision to support one of the
candidates was not easy. Our decision rests on the following eval-
uation of the candidates:
" MARVIN ESCH: Although Esch is a significant improve-
ment-particularly on civil rights legislation-over former Con-
gressman George Meader, Vivian's Republican predecessor, many
of Esch's attitudes are still rooted in the past.
Specifically, he believes that present federal poverty programs
fail to reach the poor-with which we agree. However, he pro-
vides no viable alternatives to present policies. His suggestion that
local governments and school boards administer the program ignores
the fact that these bodies do not represent and are no more re-
sponsive to the poor than are federal agencies.
tional Committee handouts rather than independent judgment,
he attacks the rent-supplement program, one of the most imag-
inative attempts to attack poor housing conditions.
Esch also has scant enthusiasm for civil liberties. He clearly
says he would have voted for appropriations for the House Un-
American Activities Committee even though he claims to doubt
the value of some of its activities; he supports HUAC's notorious
Pool Bill, which both the Justice and Treasury Departments op-
posed as unnecessary and unconstitutional. He has even criticized
Vivian's vote against automatically denying assistance to nations
trading with North Viet Nam, hinting this was implicit support
for "trading with the enemy."
Hence, while Esch points out important domestic problems,
he fails to present solutions to them. His position on Viet Nam-a
call for an investigation of the situation-is less a policy than an
attempt to avoid the responsibility to offer one.
For though the situation there certainly deserves study, Esch's
failure to take a stand based on presently-available information
in effect constitutes an endorsement of the present escalation of
the war. What is necessary are now policy proposals, which Esch
has failed to provide. It seems most likely that he would follow
House Republican Leader Gerald R. Ford's militant line if he were
" ELISE BOULDING: We share Mrs. Boulding's concern
over the escalating conflict in Viet Nam. We hope, as she does,
that the Democratic Party will strike out more boldly than it has
in new foreign and domestic policy initiatives.
The question is one of tactics in this specific election. Mrs.
Boulding's campaign has been seriously deficient in presenting
a set of sophisticated foreign and domestic alternatives.
MRS. BOULDING hopes to make a show of strength on which
a genuine peace movement can be built. Yet there is little
prospect in this district for a contest like that of the close Scheer-
Cohelan primary race in California.
Scheer, the peace candidate, discussed both foreign and do-
mestic issues; he articulated his positions carefully; his organization
was extensive; his base of support was broad, including not only
-the Berkeley academic community but also the ghettoes of Oak-
land, and he ran in the Democratic primary rather than the elec-
Mrs. Boulding, however, has failed to discuss domestic issues
or to present a broad, coherent foreign policy platform; her orga-
nization is minimal and is based almost entirely in Ann Arbor, and
she is running not as a candidate on the Democratic primary ballot
but as a write-in candidate in the general election in a conserva-
tive congressional district.
But that Mrs. Boulding's presence in this campaign has been
of great value no one can deny. Her candidacy has assured far more
debate on the Viet Nam war than would have occurred had she not
And, more important, her candidacy has offered a starting
point for something that has been a long time coming here-a
clearly defined, well-publicized force to the left of the regular
Democratic Party. Those who vote for Mrs. Boulding must con-
sider that vote a pledge to continue working after the election
for a new organization aimed at forming a substantive platform
over the next year-and-a-half and working to move the Demo-
cratic Party to the left before the 1968 convention.
Unfortunately, a vote for Mrs: Boulding will not be signifi-
cant because of the lack of an effective power base at this time.
" WESTON E. VIVIAN: Vivian's record on domestic leg-
islation has been outstanding. One of seven PhD's in Congress,
he has been an asset to his Committee on Science and Astronautics.
He supports a strong rent-supplement program and a strong fed-
eral housing discrimination bill-something which five out of the
six Michigan House Republicans opposed.

Vivian also is leading advocate of strong measures to combat
air and water pollution-he was able to exempt air pollution
control devices from the administration's bill to suspend the in-
vestment tax credit-and has successfully worked to help his dis-
trict secure federal assistance in this and other areas. He clearly
stood up for civil liberties in the House, and was one of the 58
congressmen who twice voted against appropriations for HUAC.
ALTHOUGH VIVIAN'S domestic record has been outstanding,
we are concerned that Congressman Vivian has not been more
forceful in his public advocacy of a halt in the bombing of Viet
Nam or representation of the Viet Cong in peace talks.
But long before the campaign began, he was advocating Com-
munist China's recognition by the U.S. and its admission to the
United Nations' Security Council; denouncing Congressman L.
Mendel Rivers' suggestion that we bomb Communist China's
nuclear capacity; urging de-escalation of the conflict, and pressing
the President to move closer to U Thant's three-point peace pro-
posal, which the administration later did in Arthur Goldberg's
speech to the UN.
Although Vivian has unfortunately not been the most mili-
tant opponent of the President's course in Viet Nam, he has been
active and influential in the 60-member pro-peace faction within
the Democrats in the House of Representatives. If any peace move-
ment is to succeed, it must work as a part of a broad political

it with the Vice-President for Stu-

In his letter Cutler said he
"wishes the interim structures and
procedures to depart as little as
possible from existing ones." Thus
he has granted to JJC power to
"continue to serve in its present
capacity as the campus-wide stu-
dent judiciary body."
'Good Prograin'
The program agrees entirely
with proposals made by JJC, says
JJC Chairman Richard Zucker-
man, '67, who says he is "very
satisified" with Cutler's move.
According to Baad, the vice-
president technically has the right
under the new system to over-rule
any JJC decision, even verdicts of
innocence, and personally exercise
final disciplinary power.
The interim system requires JJC
to consult with "'the dean of the
unit in which the student is en-
rolled" when penalties involving
suspension or dismissal arebang
contemplated. Baad feels it "very
unlikely" that the JJC and deans
will disagree concerning such
