On at last
For C. William Colburn, it was finally official yesterday. The
Washtenaw County Board of Canvassers certified him as winner of the
Republican nomination for Ann Arbor's State Senate district, a full 50
days after the primary and barely a month before the general election.
Colburn, a University speech professor, sought - and won - a recount
after initial tallies made him a one-vote underdog to challenger
Ronald Trowbridge, Ann Arbor City Councilman from the Fourth
Ward. Now Colburn faces a game of catch-up wit Democrat Ed
Pierce. State canvassers have yet to officially place Colburn on the

The Michigan Legislature will con-
sider, probably early next year, a
resolution to ratify an amendment to
the U.S. Constitution which would grant
full congressional representation to
Washington, D.C.
Congress approved the amendment
last month.
Local legislative candidates and
political leaders are divided over the
proposal. Democrats generally support
it, while some Republicans seem to be
split on the issue.
resolution," said State Rep. Perry
Bullard (D-Ann Arbor). "It is very
gratifying to support this amendment.
"You've got 750,000 people in
Washington, more at least than in six or
seven of the smaller states, yet they
have no voting representatives in
Congress. This amendment is
justifiable on the grounds of no taxation
without representation," he added.
ANN ARBOR attorney Douglas
Buchanan, who is the Republican
nominee for Bullard's 7th District State
House seat in the November election,
opposes the amendment, however.
"(If elected,) I will vote against it, for
historical reasons. Senators and
representatives were intended to
represent states, not cities created by
the federal government. D.C. wasn't in-
tended to be a sovereign political entity.
"You're destroying the whole intent
of the idea behind Congress if you give
D.C. representation. If you want to talk
about representing this area in
Congress, maybe you should give the
land back to Maryland," Buchanan
THESE TWO arguments demon-
strate the conflicts over the D.C.
representation issue. Both sides cite
constitutional arguments in favor of
their positions, but there are racial and
political aspects to the struggle to fur-
nish congressional seats to the
predominantly black, overwhelmingly
Democratic district.
Out-going State Senator Gilbert Bur-
sley (R-Ann Arbor), who is running for
the University Board of Regents, sup-
ports the principle of providing
congressional representation for
"When the founding fathers created
these provisions (regarding
Washington D.C.), you had a largely
rural 10-by-10-mile sort of sanctum for
the government. All circumstances
surrounding the modern District of
Columbia are totally different.
"YOU CAN'T AVOID politics there
any more. In fact, you're more involved
with them there than anywhere else,"
he added.
Ed Pierce, a local physician, is the
Democratic candidate for Bursley's
seat. He supports the amendment.
"I would vote for that. The present
status of Washington may have been
okay when there were 20,000 residents,
but the historical argument loses its
force when you have 750,000 inhabitan-
PIERCE'S GOP opponent is C.
William Colburn, a speech professor at
the University and former Ann Arbor
City Councilman.
"It really is a thorny issue," Colburn
commented, "with good arguments on
both sides. I will listen carefully to the
debate that takes place and reserve the
judgment to reverse myself. The
overriding issue is that you have a lot of

people, more than the population of
seven states, who are paying taxes but
are unrepresented."
Colburn noted that both national par-
ties and the League of Women Voters
have endorsed the amendment.
PHIL CARROLL, an Ann Arbor
resident who is state chairperson of the
Socialist Party of Michigan, supports
the amendment.
"There is a traditional Socialist
position since the early part of the cen-
tury of supporting representation for
D.C. We don't like to support the idea of
U.S. senators for D.C., however,
without pointing out that the U.S.
Senate is an undemocratic institution,
because representation in it is not
proportional to population," he said.
Most candidates agree that the
amendment will probably be ratified in
Michigan, and that if it runs into
trouble, it will be in the more conser-
vative states of the South and West. The
amendment must be ratified by 38
states to become law. So far, only New
Jersey has ratified it.
Bullard predicted speedy passage in
Michigan, noting that the heads of both
committees of the legislature which are
responsible for constitutional amen-
dments are black Democrats, Rep.
Barbara Rose Collins and Sen. Basil
U.S. Rep. Carl Pursell (R-2nd
District) and Senators Robert Griffin
(R) and Don Riegle (D) all voted to
ratify the current amendment.

157-year-old ex-fighterpilot to open
clothing store in Ypsilanti/Ann Arbor area.

Zebediah E.
Groggs, also
known as
'Sag e b r u s h

Groggs, known as Sagebrush Zeb,
claimed he could "whip" any man
half his age and said he reached his
present age by "eating regular,
sleeping regular and minding my
own business." At one time, that
included being a fighterpilot for the
United States Air Force. He admits,
though., he had to forge his driver's
license and dye his hair to enlist.
When questioned about his ex-
perience as a fighterpilot, Groggs
explained that the missions he flew
were classified and he still was not
at liberty to divulge their nature.
He did comment, however, 'I will
admit that there were times when I
was a mite scared."
Now, after his retirement from

the Air Force, Groggs feels the
need to start something new. "It's
time to start another career," he
said, "and a man can do no better
than to sell the clothes of Levi
"Sagebrush," said Groggs, "will

on Sundays from 12 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Sagebrush will be located in Ypsi-
lanti next to Meijer Thrifty Acres.

Groggs extended his "most cor-
dial welcome" for the general pub-
lic to visit his Sagebrush store. He
said that Sagebrush will offer "Levi's
for everyone.

Zebediah E. G roggs, a 157-year-old
ex-fighterpilot, will open a store in
Ypsilanti that will sell only Levi"
products. To be called "Sagebrush,"
the store will carry Levi's jeans for
gals, Levi's jeans for guys, Levi's
jackets, Levi's belts and Levi's Pana-

will open October 5
