We were glancing through a
copy of the Detroit News yester-
day and stumbled on a small let-
ter. "I was confused," it began,
"about who to vote for in the up-
coming elections until I learned
what Robert Griffin has done for
college students." It then listed
some of the incumbent U.S.
Senator's accomplishments in
the area of eduation, closing
with: ". ... and (Griffin) deserves
to be reelected. Bruce Brunberg,
University of Michigan, Ann Ar-
bor." On a hunch, we called
Bruce BRUMBERG, the local
Griffin campaign coordinator to
see if he had written the note
trying to lead readers to believe
he was just another student who
recently noticed some Griffin
literature and decided to support
him. "You're, right," he said, "I
should have identified myself."
When, he was asked, did you
decide to go with his man, and
was it on the basis of his record
on education votes? In August, at
Griffin's Washington office
Brumberg choose, his candidate
after considering a range of stan-
ds on issues. ,

By MARIANNE EGRI
Accusing Attorney General Frank
Kelley of playing politician in what
should be a lawyers' office, underdog
Republican challenger Stephen Bran-
sdorfer has charged that "a lack of
professionality" has hampered
Kelley's 17 year administration.
Bransdorfer has campaigned
energetically in an effort to meet voters
and has taken a political stand on most
of the ballot proposals. Kelley, on the
other hand, has not given an opinion on
most of the proposals. He says he thinks
the attorney generaPs job is to interpret
the law, not to dictate legislation. Per-
sistent efforts to reach Kelley this past
week met with no success.
BRANSDORFER, 49 a Grand
Rapids attorney who was president of
the Michigan Bar Asociation in 1974-75,
said the office needs a change. "The
nature of the office needs a top flight
trial lawyers and I think Kelley puts an
emphasis on political actions," said
Bransdorfer. "The professional stan-
dard of the office could be elevated by a
more effective recruitment program."
Bransdorfer has charged that Kelley
has set up a patronage system of cam-
paign contributions from the .special
assistants he appoints.
He said that at theKelley fund raiser
last March, 96 of the 133 contributors
were affiliated to him. These 96 con-
tributed 79 per cent of the total amount
raised, according to Bransdorfer.
KELLEY WAS not available for
comment, but Chief Assistant Attorney
General Stanley Steinborn denied any
relationship between special assistant
appointments and campaign con-
tributions. "Many of the special
assistants are Republicans and support
Bransdorfer, so that disproves his
charges," said Steinborn.
He pointed out that Kelley supported
the bill two years ago which would have
provided for public financing of the at-
torney general's campaign, but this did
not pass.
Steinborn added Bransdorfer was
contradicting himself because Bran-
sdorfer was accepting contributions.
from lawyers he appointed while he
was president of the state bar. "He's
saying if I do it, it's okay, but if you do
it, it's wrong," said Steinborn.
TO AVOID political affiliation in ap-
pointments, Bransdorfer said he would
set up bipartisan committees of
lawyers to review appointments and
make recommendations to the gover-
nor.
Steinborn said Kelley would be op-
posed to this arrangment because it
would be delegating the attorney
general's authority to make a decision
to a committee. "The next step would
be failing to account for the respon-
sibilities of the committee," said Stein-
born.
Attacking Kelley's record of ethnic
minority hiring in his office, Bransdor-
fer said it "is an affront to the minority
citizens of the state." He said only six
per cent of the employees in Kelley's of-
fice are minority group members, and
this is the fourth lowest percentage of
minority employees among the state
departments.
DISPUTING THIS, Steinborn said
only about four per cent of the lawyers
in the state are minority, and the attor-
ney general has six to eight per cent
minority employees. "This is double
the amount of minority lawyers
available," said Steinborn.
He added that Bransdorfer's 36
member law firm has never hired a
minority attorney. But Bransdorfer
claims this is because the resources
aren't availble to recruit minorities to
his firm.
Kelley has made an exception to his
no comment policy with Proposal K, a
measure he supports, which would
allow courts to deny bail in violent
crimes, and. Proposal B, a ballot

question he opposes, which calls for
mandatory sentencing for violent
crimes.
BRANSDORFER has taken the same
stand on Proposals K and B, but he has
come out for Proposal D, a proposal on
Tuesday's ballot which would raise the
legal drinking age to 21.
"I've seen young people killed and
families devastated," said Bransdor-
fer. "But if the amendment passes,
there should be an immediate review on
a statistical basis to see the situation
clearly."
Bransdorfer said he opposes both the
Voucher Plan-which would prohibit

the use of property taxes for schools
and establish a voucher system for
financing students education at public
and nonpublic schools-and the Tisch
amendment, which cuts property taxes,
because they are "disruptive."
HOWEVER, BRANSDORFER is in
favor of the Headlee amendment,
which is a proposal for tax limitation,
because "it puts a lid on the amount of
'money the legislators can spend." He
said, "The taxpayers have no control
over the government expenditures and
this would provide a check on un-
necessary spending.
The Detroit Free Press broke with
traditional support of Kelley and endor-
sed Bransdorfer because of Kelley's
"indecisiveness" in office, it said.
Wisconsin Attorney General Bronson
LaFolletteenforced a long-standing
law on. that state's books recently to
keep public institutions from investing
in corporations which practice
discrimination, forcing the trustees in
Madison to divest from corporations,
doing business in South Africa. When
asked about a similar measure for
Michigan, Bransdorfer expressed
reservations about the effects of such a
law.
"There's no way of weighing the ef-
fect of that (law) on minorities here,"
said Bransdorfer, but he claimed it
would "ham-string" officials and limit
funds for the improvement of education
of minorities in the U.S.
Kelley has taken no stand on South
African investments or a non-
discrimination bill.

CBS and WARNER /ELECTRA /ATLANTIC, the two largest record companies,
recently released these albums at a new high list price of $8.98. The previous high
was $7.98, and this increase on select releases is a test of the market. If these
releases sell, there will be more.
We at Liberty Music, Schoolkids Records, and University Cellar want you to be
aware of your choice. Record stores make about the same profit on the new $8.98
list as the $7.98's and so we are neither helped nor hurt. However, we believe
that a better price for the consumer will make a better business for us.
LET THE BUYER BEWARE!
