Greene Pursell square off

REN CEN BASH:
Kennedy touts Dems

By MIKE ARKUSH
and AMY SALTZMAN
Republican Rep. Carl Pursell and
Democratic City Councilman Earl
Greene (Second Ward) squared off last
night by attacking one another's
capabilities for leadership as
Congressman from Michigan's Second
District.
The candidates tussled before ap-
proximtely 50 students at Markley Hall.
GREENE ACCUSED Pursell of being
able to suggest only "cosmetic"

solutions to problems.
Greene, calling Pursell a weak
legislator, said his opponent is hindered
by being a Republican in a Democrat-
controlled House.
"My opponent has a record for stop-
ping everything, and I have one for
making things go," Greene said.

Pursell shot back by calling Greene a
man of little action on the City Council.
He couldn't criticize Greene's record,
saying the councilman lacks one.
Pursell claimed that his track record
as a Michigan state senator from 1970 to
1976 was unmatched by any legislator.
He referred to an award handed him by
the press several years ago that cited
his capable leadership.
Controversy developed when a
student asked Pursell if he had voted
two years ago against raising the
minimum wage from $2.30 to $2.65 an
hour.
Pursell said he had voted against it.
But, he added, he thought; a $2.30
minimum wage would result in a
greater number of jobs.
Somalia's principal exports are
bananas and livestock.
Since 1942, when large deposits of
bauxite were discovered on Jamaica,
the island has been the world's
largest supplier of ore and alumina.

Special to the Daily
DETROIT-Ted Kennedy rolled his
"I am not a candidate" presidential
campaign into Detroit Sunday night,
and once again showed for a
Democratic fundraiser that he-and
not Jimmy Carter or Walter Mon-
dale-is the most popular Democrat in
the country.
Eight hundred and fifty state
Democrats and Kennedy loyalists
packed the ballroom of the Renaissance
Center at $100-a-ticket to hear the
Massachusetts senator extoll the vir-
tues of candidates William Fitzgerald
and Carl Levin. But when it was over, it
was Kennedy who was surrounded by
autograph seekers and coat sleeve
touchers.
THE FUNDRAISER added $80,000 to
the Fitzgerald campaign fund, and
Kennedy proved just one more time
that he is the Democratic party's star
attraction. Mondale, by contrast, at a
fundraiser in Southfield last Thursday,

raised only $30,000.
And while emphatically denying that
he will challenge Jimmy Carter for the,
Democratic presidential nomination in
1980, Kennedy at least teased his recep-
tive audience with the prospect.
"I want to make it clear, I didn't
come to Michigan because it has 21
electoral votes," Kennedy said smiling.
The audience got the hint, and respon-
ded with a standing ovation and cheers.
BESIDES FITZGERALD and Levin
Kennedy shared the stage with Olivia
Maynard, the Democratic candidate
for lieutenant governor, and Secretary
of State Richard Austin and Attorney
General Frank Kelley, who are both
seeking reelection.
"I came here because I'm for the Fit-
zgerald-Levin ticket," Kennedy said.
He added, turning to the gubernatorial
candidate seated at his left, "With a
name like Fitzgerald, if you don't make
it in Michigan, come to Massachusetts.
It's a real familiar name in our
family," Kennedy said, referringlo his

brother, the late President John Fit
zgerald Kennedy and their mother
family name.
KENNEDY REPEATED his call foi
national health insurance, saying
"Quite frankly, friends, I'm tired o
listening to my colleagues in the Hous<
of Representatives and th4
Senate-who are covered by the mos
comprehensive (health care) progran
imaginable-say it's not good enoug]
for the people back home."
Kennedy also blasted his colleague
for passing the $18 billion tax cutbi]
that he says favors only the wealthy
"Everybody who makes less thai
$50,000 a year in this room will fin
their tax increase next year," he said
"People making over $200,000 get
reduction. That is what we did in th<
Congress of the United States.
"I didn't hear Carl Levin,'s opponen
on the floor of the Senate say we've go
to do more for the middle income,
Kennedy said.
IN A PLUG for the Democrats h
came to endorse, the popular senato
said, "My friends-I believe with a Fit
zgerald administration peple wil
care. They'll care about the young
they'll care about the old, they'll car!
about people who live in urban center
and people who live in rural areas."
As for Levin, Kennedy said: "Whei
Kennedy and Levin vote together on th
floor of the United States Senate, it cai
make some difference for the peopl
who live in this state."
