Interest in the August 2nd
Democratic primary seems to be
focused increasingly on the Wil-
liams-Cavanagh race, as the day
of decision draws nearer.
Detroit Mayor Jerome Cavanagh
and -former Governor G. Mennen
Williams are both hoping to win
the Democratic nomination for the
U.S. Senate position left vacant
by the late Sen. Pat McNamara.
They both have been campaign-
ing throughout the state all week,
meeting and speaking to potential

supporters. Their approaches to
the campaign, however, are at
opposite ends of the political pole.
Cavanagh claims a strong de-
sire to "discuss the difficult, com-
plex, and controversial problems
of our times," and has repeatedly
challenged the ex-governor to pub-
lic debate on any terms Williams
might set.
The Detroit mayor is directly
critical of Williams' policies and
positions in his campaign speeches,
and often challenges him to take
a stand on issues such as the war

in Viet Nam, the size of welfare
benefits, and the possibility of na-
tional wage guidelines.
Williams, on the other hand,
doesn't even mention his oppon-
ent's name in his speeches, and
continues his refusal to engage in
public debate.
Several television networks, as
well as the Detroit Press Club,
have invited the candidates to
appear in debates. Cavanagh has
accepted, Williams refused, all of
The essence of the Williams

campaign is the ex-governor's per-
sonal popularity. He is well known
through the state, and appears to
be comfortably ahead in the race
to date.
His speeches are primarily di-
rected against the Republican
nominee, Sen. Robert Griffin, and
he appears confident that he will
meet Griffin in the senatorial
Cavanagh, however, is far from
giving up. His staff believes that,
although he is behind in the race,
Williams' support has reached its

peak, while Cavanagh's is rising.
The Detroit mayor is hoping to
get a large proportion of the as-
yet undecided votes-and these
appear to be quite a few. Cava-
nagh's staff took a poll several
weeks ago which showed 40 per
cent undecided.
And a Detroit News poll taken
this week indicates as many as 17
per cent of the voters undecided
when Cavanagh and Williams were
respectively matched against Grif-
However, reporters following the

election are wondering whether
the "undecided" are concerned
voters or merely not interested
enough to vote at all.
Another speculation is that
Cavanagh has more support than
the polls reveal, mostly from young
people. When both candidates ac-
cidentally appeared at the same
factory gate Tuesday to greet the
workers, it was reported that many
were apprehensive about talking
to newsmen. This was attributed
to the fact that their local of the
United Steel Workers has en-


dorsed Williams, and shop ste-
wards were at the gate with the
Both candidates plan extensive
campaigning in the 12 days until
the primary, and it seems likely
that the tactics of both will re-
main the same: Williams making
general liberal statements, con-
centrating on projecting an image
of solid experience and trust-
worthiness; Cavanagh, pressing for
public debate, and trying to force
the campaign into a battle of
specific issues.

Firebombs, Looting
Mark Third Night of,-
Racial Disturbances
By The Associated Press
Firebombs were hurled last night
in widely scattered, sporadic van-
dalism in and around Cleveland,'
Ohio's, Hough area, Negro section
sealed off by National Guardsmen
after two nights of rioting.
"They just threw a gas bomb at
us," a policeman radioed from one
spot. "They've got them stacked
behind a pole."
Firebombs-bottles of gasoline
with a wick - ignited numerous
small fires, the fire department
reported. Rock throwing, window
smashing and looting occurred in
some spots but disorders were on
a much smaller scale than on the
previous two nights.
A large crowd of Negroes smash-
ed store windows shortly, after

east of the section where rioting
Monday and Tuesday nights left
two dead and 24 injured.
Guardsmen joined police in
wide-ranging patrols.
A crude firebomb was hurled
from a car and gushed into flames
outside a hotel. But it failed to
ignite "the building. An armed
guard was posted inside the hotel.
The doors were locked.
"They're throwing bottles at
us," a policeman radioed from one
location. Another officer said
stones were hurled at a transit
car in still another spot.
But in the original riot area of
Hough, all was quiet in the first
hours of darkness under the tight
restrictions imposed by guardsmen.
Only residents or motorists on
official business could get in or
More than 800 guardsmen were
on patrol at dark. Police Inspector
Gerald Rademaker said guards-
men and police patrols were rang-

In Chicago, meanwhile, the riot
zone was placid during the day,
but 1,700 National Guardsmen re-
mained on alert in armories. The
soldiers stayed off the streets
Tuesday night for the first time
since Friday, and officials said it
was "very, very quiet."
At Jacksonville, Fla., City Judge
John E. Santora cracked down on
Negro vandals after two straight
nights of violence, and law en-
forcement officials beefed up their
forces to halt a wave of rock
throwing and fire bombing which
began Monday.
Santora sentenced 10 persons to
jail. He told parents who came to
get their teen-age children that
he was not following a custom of
releasing young offenders to par-
ental custody.

missioner of Education Harold
Howe II may provide an additional
$30 million for NDEA loans to the
nation's colleges in the current
fiscal year.
Howe. in presenting his request,
said the extra money was needed
because approved requests for loan
funds from the colleges and uni-
versities totaled $213.5 million,
while the amount presently auth-
orized for loans is only $190 mil-
He also said that because of the
operation of the state allotment
formula, colleges in certain states
"would receive only 53 or 54 per
cent of their approved requests."
Under Howe's plan, colleges
which desired to could obtain their
student loan funds in the form of

for the loans would be sold
through the Federal National
Mortgage Association to private
investors in a sales participation
pool. Proceeds from the sales;
would go into a revolving fund'
from which additional loans to in-
stitutions could be made.
Howe emphasized in his testi-
mony before the Senate subcom-
mittee that the process "does not
involve banks or financial institu-
tions in any way in the student
financial aid affairs."
"It does not alter in the slight-
est the terms affecting student
borrowing. Loan forgiveness, in-
terest rates and the like remain
as at present. Neither are institu-
tions affected other than positive-
ly, since they will now be able to
free up their matching funds for
NDEA purposes and direct them
at their discretion to the host of
financial needs afflicting every in-
stitution of higher learning," he
Howe said his proposal resulted
from "a quite extended re-study
of the entire problem" following
the House Education Committee's
rejection of an earlier adminis-
tration proposal to shift the fi-
nancing of NDEA loans to the
commercial lending market.

While supporting the proposed

alternative to asking you in future

WASHINGTON (P) - Mounting
Viet Nam casualty figures mask
an essential fact for all draft-age
American men: The average GI's
chances of leaving Viet Nam alive
are five times better than during
the Korean War.
Of the next 1,000 men inducted
into the Army, only eight probably
will be killed in action, current
official figures show.
"Thousands of men are poured
into the Army every month and

of manpower filters before a rela-
tively few will wind up in Viet

than 4,000 men asked for Viet

About 300,000 men will be draft-
ed into the Army under current
plans for the fiscal year ending
June 30, 1967. And based on cur-
rent strength requirements in

estimated one-third of the total

that any radical change in the

alter such figures but barring

less dangerous to be in Viet Nam

rate in Viet Nam is about 24 per

country. In Korea the figure was
136 and in World War II it stood
