...;November 5, 1968
By DREW BOGEMA
November 5th was the day I voted for Hubert Humphrey.
It was also the day I voted for the continued existence of
Detroit, Lawrence Welk, the Ann Arbor News, and WJBK-TV in
"Lunch-Box City" as opposed to barricades, street violence, a
radical transformation of the existing order, and the institution
of a new and exciting brand of politics.
My friends expect me to apologize whenever mention is
made of my decision last November. Many of my friends con-
sider themselves radicals, which by all means they should. They
should continue to oppose mass murder in Vietnam, the cen-.
tralization of power in the United States, the existing customs
and conventions of a sterile social existence, and the proliferation
of irrelevance by capitalistic agents.
However, all I have to say about November 5th is this:
One should never vote on an empty stomach.
I was walking down Wells Street toward Burns Park School
when sharp and intense hunger pains began striking the walls of
my stomach. I quickly recalled that it had been close to seven-
teen hours since I had last stuffed food into my body politic.
AT THE TIME I was wavering between voting for Cleaver
in a mood of hostile, righteous, indignation, or, voting for
Humphrey, humbly announcing that the Republic was one-
hundred-and-ninety-two years old .and two hundred million
strong, and who was I to cast judgment?
The startling lack of fuel added a disruptive element to my
calculations, and prevented a sound and intelligent approach to
the problem. To my mind, political scientists and those con-
gerned with the nature of the political animal have devoted
entirely too much attention to the long-range factors that play
an influence upon how a person votes. The culinary aspects of
my own political ethic were strongly pushing me in a direction
I had vowed not to go.
AS I MOVED past the campaign workers stationed outside
the school, the choice seemed definitely to be Cleaver. Although
for the last week, I had oriented my mind toward the plea set
forth by . the desperate Democrats, that the absolute priority
was to prevent Nixon from gaining power, the pains were too
great; dissension within my intestinal tract was pushing me to-
ward radicalism in politics. Or perhaps it was merely the gleam
in the eye of the middle-aged Harvey volunteer, not the digestive
aspects, that propelled me to Peace and Freedom.
Forget the violent aspects of Cleaer and the Panthers, my
stomach told me. Evil politicians like Humphrey who ignore tear
gas and Mace for acceptance speeches, who can embrace the
corpse of Lyndon Johnson placing their reservations upon the
shrine of liberalism, who can't respond to massive public de-
mands for revision of policy, who can't change their convictions
in the middle of the stream, ain't fit to be politicos or Presidents.
This mood of hostility was only reinforced as I entered
the school. A long table replete with the diverse varieties of Girl
Scout cookies and other refreshments had been positioned near
Be firm, came the directions from my ramshackle mental
control center. Don't be pushed into voting for Humphrey simply
because the pols have waylaid your path with alluring delights
to sway you into mainstream channels. It was reminiscient of
the Nixon line that implored angry students to come back into
the American middle. "Hell no, I won't go," I brusquely chanted
(to a surprised matron) and moved to the end of the corridor
where thirty or so clustered, anxiously waiting to cast their
THE THIRTY or so were connected to another seventy who
waited patiently inside the gymnasium. The great majority, my
stomach told me, seemed to be elderly or professional middle-
class thralls who had taken the day off to engage in the great
American game. And they were excited too, for toes tapped,
shoulders rustled, and pairs of eyes rapidly swung around the
Immediately ahead of me in line was a boy clad in a red-
plaid corduroy jacket and as we watched our slow movement
toward the tables inside, a conversation was struck. After
both of us tossed out pieces of rhetoric conerning the utility
of the American political system, I asked him of his intentions.
"For Humphrey . . . anything to keep that bastard from
'power," he replied.
The strength of the Cleaver mood, however, was slipping as
I lit up a cigarette, which served to temporarily suppress my
appetite. The Nixon-Agnew ticket would spell doom to any
chance of an early conclusion of hostilities in Vietnam. Racial
separation and inequality would be furthered, not retarded.
Faced with growing threats to domestic tranquility by the mili-
tancy of the ghetto and the campus, Richard Nixon would adopt
aspects, if not -the entire barrel, of the Wallace program.
A VOTE for Humphrey would put a man into office with the
toleration and restraint to stem the flow of reactionary move-
ment within America, and re-direct youthful energy toward
meaningful reform, a change of sterile life-styles, and an end to
the dehumanization of modern, industrial life.
A vote for Cleaver would be valuable in insuring that Peace
and Freedom would meet the 13,000-vote requirement. However,
it would be much more meaningful if Milhouse and Spiro T.
were kept away from the levers of power.
Cleaver was as ass, I told myself. The authoritarian aspects
of his personality and program gave him a Stalin-like appear-
ance. Why hadn't the Gregory caucus at the Peace and Free-
dom convention won out, so that the choice between violence and
stultification could be deferred?
I lit another Winston (products of scab labor, I was told)
and my appetite again was suppressed. After all, wasn't Hum-
phrey the man who had told the Dixiecrats to go to hell in 1948?
Wasn't this the man whom I prayed for to win in West Virgina
and Wisconsin in 1960?
The old Humphrey and the new Humphrey were one and the
same. He had been forced to coalesce with the decisions of the
Johnson Administration because of his deep and underlying
faith in the American ethic. (Voice from below: "Wasn't this the
man who conspired with Boss Daley to put an end to popular
participation at Chicago?)
MY REFLECTIONS were once again diverted by a League
of Women Voter type who steered me into the voting machine.
Here I was at the brink of decision. Passively, I allowed my mind
to reflect the strongest mental force, and, consequently lit an-
other cigarette. The decision had been made. Stomach said no
more. I quickly pulled the lever for Humphrey and the legion
of local radicals and walked dejectedly out of the building.
I had sold out. I had voted for compromise, accommodation,

ABC to carry Monday g
NEW YORK () - Professional
football and the American Broad-
casting Co. reached an agreement
yesterday for the televising in
color of 13 regular season games
on Monday night starting in 1970.
The agreement is for three
years. Announcement was made

ABC Sports, and Pete Rozelle, pro

This is the first contract with
a professional sports league for a
regular series during prime televi-
sion time. The telecasts of the
Monday games will start at 8:30
or 9 p.m., EDT.
The weekly series will start on
the first Monday night of the
regular season in 1970 and end on
the Monday night before the last
weekend of the regular season.
Rozelle emphasized that the
contract covers only 13 regular
season games annually. Contracts
covering the remaining 169 regu-
lar season games of the 26 pro
teams in the newly realigned
league will be negotiated later,
The commissioner added that
income from all television will be
shared equally by the 26 teams.
It was speculated that Rozelle
would announce the complete tele-
vision-money package after he
meets with NBC and CBS officials
to negotiate the remaining Sunday
package. Current contracts with
the two networks expire after the

Tiger as a leading contender for
the light heavy crown he lost last

Tiger cut Benvenuti around the

warned to keep his punches up.
Referee Perez scored it 7-2-1,

Judge Al Berl 6-3-1, all for Tiger.
The Associated Press card was 7-3
for Tiger who went into the ring
