Detroit Poll
Gives Edge
To, Rormney
Voters To Nominate
Congressman-at-large

By MICHAEL HARRAHI
City Editor
Republicans and Democrats are
lined up for what pundits perdict
will be one of the hottest state
races in decades.
-[ Incumbent Democrat Gov. John
B. Swainson will face GOP chal-
lenger George Romney, Bloom-
fieldHills auto executive, to oc-
cupy the statehouse. In Sunday's
editions, the Detroit News poll
gave Romney a slight edge.
Other statewide nominees are
Democraticnational committee-
man Neil Staebler of Ann Arbor,
S aopposing former Rep. Alin M.
Bentley (R-Owosso) for congress-
man-at-large, a post created when
the state failed to redistrict its
congressional seats according to
the,160 census.
Lieutenant Governor
Also running are incumbent Lt.
Gov. T. John Lesinski against his
Republican opponent former Lt.
Gov. Clarence E. Reid.
s At their Aug. 25 convention,
Democrats nominated Incumbent
officeholders to fill out their
ticket. Secretary of State James
H. Hare, State Treasurer $'anford
A. Brown, Attorney General Frank
Kelley, and Auditor General Bille
S. Farnum.;
On the GOP ticket, Romney
hand-picked former Wayne Coun-
ty Republican chairman Norman
0. Stockmeyer for secretary of
state, former Kalamazoo mayor
Glenn S. Allen for state treasurer,
- Muskegon attorney Robert J. Dan-
hof for attorney general, and
Grand Rapids accountant William
Seidman for auditor general.
Con-Con Delegates
Like Romney, Allen and Danhof
w e r e constitutional convention
delegates.
Nominated at party conventions
but ru nn i ng on non-partisan
ticketsuare candidates for supreme
court justices. The GOP put up
Genesse County circuit judge
Louis McGregor and Menominee
jurist Michael D. O'Hara. Demo-
crats stayed with incumbents Paul
Adams, former attorney general of
Sault Ste. Marie, and Otis M.
Smith, former auditor general.
Both were appointed by Swainson
to fill vacancies, and this election
is for the unexpired terms.
Incumbent congressman turned
back their partisan opposition. In
the fourth district, where veteran
incumbent Clare E. Hoffman (R-
Allegan) is retiring, former State
Sen. Edward M. Hutchinson (R-
Fennville) defeated three oppon-
ents to gain the nod. The GOP
nomination is tantamount to elec-
tion.
In the Legislature, both partis
discovered some upsets. Republi-
cans bounced Senators Carlton E.
Morris (R-Kalamazoo) and Char-
les R,. Feenstra (R-Grand Rapids).
Senate President Pro Tem Perry
W. Greene (R-Grand Rapids),
and Senators Clarence F. Graeb-
ner (R-Saginaw), and Lynn O.
Francis (R-Midland).
City Considers
Bias Measure
On Housing
Work continues on drafting an
anti-discrimination fair housing
ordinance as Ann Arbor spent a
quiet political summer.
The City Council rejected a
draft ordinance by Democratic
Councilman Lynn Eley on the ad-
vice of the Human Relations Com-
mission which cited procedural
difficulties in the measure and met
* with it in a closed session to study
the issue. At a closed Council
working session plans for drafting
such an ordinance were discussed.
Eley's ordinance, modeled after
one designed by a Council-HRC
committee two years ago, bans dis-
crimination in public housing,

CONGRESSIONAL NOMINEES-Democratic National Commit-
teeman Neil Staebler (left) will oppose former Rep. Alvin M.
Bentley (R-Owosso) for the office of congressman-at-large in
Michigan.
CON-CON ADJOURNS:
Delegat 'es Give Okay,
To Proposed Document
All 144 delegates gathered in Constitution Hall, Lansing, Aug.
1, to approve the final draft of the proposed new constitution for
the State of Michigan.
The vote for approval ran roughly along party lines, with
Republicans generally favoring passage and Democrats opposed.
The GOP outnumbered their opposition 99-45.
Several outstate Democrats joined the GOP in their vote of

U.S. Appeal
Stalls Effect
Of Decision
Voids State Ruling
On Senate Seating
Michigan's smoldering reappor-
tionment controversy has been put
on ice until the next session of the
Legislature, however it will be a
major issue in the fall campaign.
The state Supreme Court, de-
ciding in favor of state AFL-CIO
President August Scholle in his
suit asking the nullification of the
present Senate's apportionment,
had ordered the almost immediate
reapportionment of the Senate.
Three Republican senators appeal-
ed that decision to Justice Potter
Stewart of the United States Su-
preme Court who accepted their
request for a delay. Senators Frank
Beadle (R-St. Clair), Paul Young-
er (R-Lansing) and Frank Fitz-
gerald (R-Grand Ledge) will ap-
peal the decision to the full court
in October.
In a 4-3 decision, split along
party lines and delineated in six
different opinions, the state Su-
preme Court ruled:
No Validity
1) The 34 frozen districts creat-
ed by a 1952 constitutional amend-
ment are null and void as they
violate the "equal protection"
clause of the 14th Amendment;
2) There is no valid apportion-
ment under which an election can
be held;
3) The Aug. 7 primary of the
state Senate is cancelled (Stew-
art's decision voided this part of
the state ruling) ;
4) Past laws are valid as the
court recognizes the present Leg-
islature as "de facto" until the end
of the current term (voided by
Stewart's decision);
'Urgent Need'
4) The Legislature and the gov-
ernor are notified that apportion-
ment legislation is "urgently need-
ed" on the basis of the 1908 Con-
stitution provision for 32 districts
of equal population. State Supreme
Court Justice Thomas Kavanagh
in the controlling opinion suggest-
ed a two to one ratio as the maxi-
mum disparity between districts.
The current ratio is 12 to 1;
6) If new districts are not creat-
ed by Aug. 20, a special primary
is ordered for Sept. 11 with an at-
large Senate election Nov. 7 (void-
ed by Stewart's decision) and;
7) The Court retains indefinite
jurisdiction to insure its decision
is obeyed.
New Question
Stewart, in' delaying the state
decision, said that it raises a new
federal question of whether the
"equal protection" clause of the
14th Amendment requires both
houses of a state legislature to
be on population only.

approval but some right-wing Re-
publicans dissented. One delegate,
Thomas B. Shanahan (R-Charle-
voix), astained.
The Democratic Party vowed to
oppose the approval of the con-
stitution, which will be put to a
vote of the people in April. Repub-
licans have gone on record favor-
ing it, and such groups as the Jun-
ior Chamber of Commerce, the
Farm Bureau, and the League of
Women Voters will also support it.
Observers feel it is too early to
tell whether or not the document
will be approved. Many outstate
residents were opposed to the call-
ing of the convention in the first'
place, and they undoubtedly will
hew to principle and join the
Democrats in opposing it.
