Kucinich upset in Cleveland;
Brown victorious in Kentucky

From the Associated Pres.
Dennis Kucinich, the maverick mayor who with-
stood a recall and two defaults on Cleveland's city
debt, was ousted last night by Republican George
Voinovich, while Democrat John Brown, a flam-
boyant millionaire businessman, won the Kentucky
governorship.
Early returns in Ohio showed that a proposition
that would require a 10-cent deposit on beverage con-
tainers to curb litter was trailing. The secretary of
state's office reported an early count of 19,215 against
the bottle proposal, and 11,565 in favor.
WASHINGTON AND MAINE also voted on anti lit-
ter propositions to mandate deposits on beverage
containers. Those contests drew heavy last minute
advertising flurries, mostly by industry foes.
In Mississippi, former Lt. Gov. William Winter ap-
peared headed for victory over Republican Gil Car-
michael, who was bidding to end 11 decades of
Democratic control of the governorship. With 16 per
cent of the vote in, Winter led 67,641-48,404.
The nation's voters seleced two governors and
dozens of big city mayors in yesterday's "off year"
elections.
IN PHILADELPHIA, former U.S. Rep. William

Green easily defeated Republican David Marston in
the race to succeed Mayor Frank Rizzo.
Boston Mayor Kevin White was reelected to an un-
precented fourth term, defeating a fellow Democrat,
state Sen. Josephy Timilty.
Kucinich, a tart-tongued anti-establishment
Democrat, asked Clevelanders to united behind
Voinovich, the Ohio lieutenant governor. With 200 of
Cleveland's 645 precints reporting, Voinovich led
31,399 to 23,538.
"WE SACRIFICED the mayor's office because we
refused to bow and serve to the money power of this
community," Kucinich told his disappointed suppor-
ters.
In Kentucky, Brown took a convincing victory over
former Gov. Louie Nunn, a Republican. With more
than half the votes counted, Brown led by 291,345 to
205,555.
Nunn conceded defeat and then bowed out of public
life, declaring, "I wish for the governor-elect the very
best ... I have no intention of running for office
again. He added: "The voters have done my family
and me a great personal favor. What they have done
for themselves has yet to be determined."
NUNN'S RACE WITH Brown was a contentious

one, and Brown had commented several weeks ago,
"I don't just want to beat this fellow. I want to give
him the whipping of his life."
Kentucky Gov. Julian Carroll, like Gov. Cliff Finch
of Mississippi and Rizzo in Philadelphia, was barred
by law from re-electionk
Mayors were being elected in 49 of the 163 cities
with populations of more than 100,000. Most interest
was focused on races in Cleveland, Philadelphia,
Boston, Minneapolis, and San Francisco.
DIANNE FEINSTEIN, appointed mayor of San
Francisco after Mayor George Moscone was slain
last year, was trying for the third time to be the first
woman elected to the job.
Former Rep. Donald Fraser, (D-Minn.), was
trying a comeback in the Minneapolis mayoral race,
against a field including former three-term Mayor
Charles Stenvig, running as an independent, and
Republican Michael Barras.
Racially troubled Boston was choosing between
two Democrats - Mayor Kevin White and state Sen.
Joseph Timilty.
Republican Mayor William Hudnut was re-elected
in Indianapolis. ,

Michigan delegation
promotes futur'e business

.

By WILLIAM THOMPSON
Gov. William Milliken and a state trade
delegation have established major links between
Michigan and the huge Chinese market, state of-
ficials say. They predict, however, that it may be
years before any trade is set up.
Milliken, Michigan Department of Commerce
officials, and representatives of ten state in-
dustries returned last week from a two-week
visit to China. The Michigan machine tool and
metal equipment manufacturers met with 150
Chinese technicians.
"THE PEOPLE who went would conclude that
we laid a good foundation for future business
with China," Milliken said last week. "But that
business is not going to occur and the contracts
are not going to be written tomorrow morning or
even next month, perhaps not even next year."
According to Bill Lukens of the state Commer-
ce Department, much of the Chinese trade
situation is out of the government's hands. "It is
difficult if not impossible to predict the future of
this - the gains are long term," said Lukens.
"Much of the action now is going to be taken by
individual firms."
The department is now trying to coordinate a

plan which would enable these companies to.
trade with China. MDC employees who went to
China are still meeting in an effort to assess the
effects of the trip, said Barney White of the
Commerce Department. "(Director William)
McLaughlin is still tallying the results of the
trip," White declared. "The first result will be a
briefing book which should be available some
time next year."
"China is a nation of 900 million people, almost
a quarter of the world's population," Milliken
said. "There is a tremendous long-range poten-
tial for Michigan and the United States' produce-
ts. I think the euphoria many people had about
this enormous market opening has been brought
back to more manageable and pragmatic
levels."
The attractiveness of the Chinese market
becomes even greater because of the great need
in China for technology trade with the U.S. could
provide, White said. "The stuff we had, they
didn't know existed," he said. "Their factories
looked like something from the 1920s.
"The companies on this paid their own way.
And there is no doubt that it is going to pay off for
them."

EDC bonds may soon fund five projects

(Continued from Page 1)
be financed through similar tax exempt
bonds. The Cranbrook bonds, however,
will be issued under the authority of the
federal department of Housing and Ur-
ban Development (HUD).
The Cranbrook Developers, Long
said, managed a coup when they found
a buyer for their bonds at eight per cent
interest.
"In the space of about a week, if they
hadn't had a commitment for eight per
cent, it would have been 9,55 (per
cent)," he said.
CRANBROOK'S HUD financing dif-
fers from EDC funding in that the HUD
program is aimed at housing develop-
ments for senior citizens and the un-
derprivileged, and HUD guarantees the

i v,

bonds if the housing project should be
unable to repay.
EDC does not serve as guaranteer for
the bonds it authorizes, and it is direc-
ted at profit-making enterprises.
The five projects close to realization
include financing for the office and
asembly space of the Ann Arbor Com-
puter Corporation, a six-story Sheraton
Hotel, the renovation of the Arborland
Shopping Center, office and warehouse
space of the Eisenhower Commerce
Center, and the research facility of
Herman Miller, Inc., a firm that
designs and builds specialized office
equipment.
SLATED TO receive a total of $27
million, the five projects breakdown as

follows: Herman Miller, Inc., $800,000;
Arborland Mall Associates, $8 million;
Boardwalk Inn, Inc., $9.5 million;
Eisenhower Commerce Center, $8
million; and Ann Arbor Computer Cor-
poration, $870,000.
At its meeting yesterday morning,
the nine member EDC board elected of-
ficers for one year terms.
Henry Landau, of H.S. Lanau, Inc., a
contracting firm, was re-elected
chairman of the board. Larry Clark, a
businessman associated with Avis En-
terprises, Inc., was xe-elected vice
chairman.

Jim Frenza, head of the city's Cham-
ber of Commerce, took over as
secretary from Gail Margoni, a sales
manager at Holiday InnWest, who con-
tinues as a board member at large.
Robert Bring, a vice president of Ann
Arbor Bank and Trust Co., was re-
elected as treasurer.
