boisterous Irish bachelor eight years

vantage Fitzgerald holds over his run-
ning mate only sharpens the contrast.
Though not outwardly noticeable, the
biggest difference between the two is on
the abortion issue. Maynard is
protestant and pro-abortion, while the
Catholic Fitzgerald is against abortion.
However, Maynard, a womens' rights
advocate, denies that she has sold out
by running on a Democratic ticket
which doesn't even have the endor-
sement of the National Organization of
Women. She says she agrees on "just

Wherever he goes, State Senator
William Fitzgerald demands
everyone's attention-'and he gets it.
Whether shaking hands at plant gates,
slapping backs at picnics or handing
out leaflets on street corners, the six

compels people to listen to him.
"Come here and shake my hand
before I kick your butt," he ordered an
old friend recently. "And don't forget to
spread the word," the Democaratic
gubernatorial candidate added with a
smile. 'The word,' according to Fit-
zgerald, is that he can dethrone the in-

predictions to the contrary -by political
FITZGERALD RELIED heavily on
such bravado early in the campaign,
when he needed recognition to offset the
immense popularity of the affable
Milliken. But although Milliken had led
by 10 or more per cent since the cam-

recent figures indicate that Fit-
zgerald's active campaigning has
brought him even with the incumbent.

MSA boycotts pres.

V r Vim, The Michigan Student Assembly
(MSA) voted last night to boycott the
presidential selection process because
it will deny students the right to inter-
view and other personal contacts with
x dpotential candidates, as well as formal
lines of communication between ad-
visory committees in the Regent's
Until these criteria are "explicitly
provided for" MSA will not name a
student advisory committee to par-
t ticipate in the process.
MSA decided during its weekly
session in the Union to postpone inter-
viewing of the 60 candidates for the
student search committee.
Instead it will set up a mass meeting
during which interested students would
be able to discuss the process.
A substitute amendment was
defeated which would have provided for
a constructive alternative to the
boycott, by establishing an independent
committee to represent members of the
rippling autumn Daily Photo by ANDY FREEBERG University community.

Ypsilanti murder suspect
arraigned without bond
WASHINGTON (AP) - President
arter prepared yesterday to unveil the
econd-step offensive against inflation,
elling the Cabinet his nationally
roadcast speech "is one of the most
portant I'll ever make as president."
But Carter said his new program of
argely voluntary wage and price
uidelines is doomed unless it wins the
ooperation of labor, business, gover-
ment and the general public.
THE PRESIDENT chose the White
ouse Oval Office as the setting for the
ddress to the nation.
While reporters listened, Carter told
the Cabinet that "very formidable" op-
position was beginning to arise from
unnamed special interests even while
he put the finishing touches on the ad-
"We've got to be prepared to meet it
forcefully and effectively," the
THE NEW guidelines would take the
government one step beyond the ad-
ministration's initial anti-inflation ef-
fort, which involved pleas to business
and labor earlier this year to restrain
wage and price increases by holding
them to below the average increases of
the preceding two years.;
The new program will be aimed at
limiting wage increases to 7 per cent
next year and price increases to about
5.75 per cent. If successful, the program
would reduce inflation to between 6 per
cent and 6.5 per cent by the end of 1979,
compared with a rate of about 8 per
cent by the end of this year.
Carter briefed Cabinet members after
returning to the White House from
Camp David, the secluded Maryland
mountaintop retreat where he'd been
working on the address.
"I THINK THE speech that I will
make tonight.. . is one of the most im-
portant that I'll ever make while I'm
president," Carter said.
"The inflation pressures on us are
getting increasingly severe, and of
course they've been bad for the last 10
years," the president said, adding:
"Unless we can unite not only the
government officials at the federal,
state and local levels, but also private
industry, labor and other elements of

WHILE BRIEFING a handful of
members of Congress later, Carter
said he would try to arouse any "un-
warranted expectations" about the
possible success of the program. He
said the goal is to make inflation "level
off and hopefully go down."
The president has said many times
that he opposes mandatory wage and
price controls unless there is a national
emergency, and in any case Congress
has not given Carter the authority to
Then-President Richard Nixon, using
authority that a Democratic-controlled
Congress forces on him over his own ob-
jections, imposed mandatory wage and
price controls in 1971 when inflation
was running at about six per cent a
year. The rate dropped to 3.4 per cent in
1971 and 1972, but shot up at 8.8 per cent
in 1973 after controls were lifted, and
12.2 per cent the following year.
LABOR SECRETARY Ray Marshall,
speaking to reporters after the Cabinet
meeting, said the president would
propose a "standard" rather than a
"guideline" for wage and price in-
Marshall confirmed the seven per
cent figure for wage increases and said,
"If you get above-average increases in
wages, above the seven per cent, you
want to figure out why."
As for prices, company-by-company
guidelines are aimed at holding down
increaes to a national average of 5.75
per cent a year, officials said. Each
company would be asked to hold its in-
creases to 0.5 per cent less thanits own
average for 1976 and 1977.
Marshall said that "This is not a
purely voluntary program."

Billy Hardesty was arraigned yester-
day in his hospital room on five counts
of first degree murder and two counts
of assault with intent to commit mur-
der. He is being held without bond.
Hardesty, 21, is in fair condition at St.
Joseph Mercy Hospital recovering
from shotgun wounds he sustained in an
Oct. 19 shootout with the state police.
FOURTEENTH District Court Judge
Kenneth Bronson ordered Hardesty to
face preliminary examination in Cir-
cuit Court Oct. 31 on charges that he
murdered his mother and father. Judge
Bronson also set Hardesty's exam in
the murder of his ex-wife's brother,
Daniel Wood, and the critical wounding
of two other men for Nov. 1.
Hardesty will appear in court again
Nov. '2 for examination on two more
counts of murder for the deaths of
Timothy Schofield, 21, and Troy Curry,
28, in the parking lot of Abigail's Dirty
Shame Saloon in Ypsilanti.
Bronson set bond at $50,000 for each
count of assault with intent to commit
murder, but ordered Hardesty to be
held without bond on the five murder
WASHTENAW County Prosecutor
William Delhey said the purpose of a
preliminary examination is to establish
two points. The first is to determine
whether the crime in question was ac-
tually committed. The second is that
there is enough evidence that the
defendant may have committed the
crime to justify binding him over for
Delhey said he is confident Hardesty
will be bound over for trial, but added
that the preliminary examination could
only take place after Hardesty is
released from the hospital.
"There is a good chance that Har-
desty won't be released in time for
examination next week," Delhey said,
adding that he would probably handle
the case himself.
Hardesty was represented at the
arraignment by Belleville attorney
INVESTIGATORS believe that Har-
desty's alleged murder rampage began
about 4 p.m. Wed., Oct. 18 with the
shooting death of his father. Hardesty's
mother is believed to have died about 10
p.m. Wednesday, while the slaying of
Schofield and Curry was witnessed
shortly after 2 a.m.
Nearly two hours later, Wood was
killed at the Stiles Wood Corporation
shop while at work. Bobby Baker, and
Tommie Lee Brown were both wounded
in the attack. Brown was listed in
serious condition yesterday, while
Baker rests in fair condition.
