Trowbridge: moving on

By JOE VARGO
In a little less than ten days, Council-
man Ron Trowbridge will be leaving
politics-perhaps permanently-for the
podium.
Trowbridge, a Fourth Ward
Republican, is resigning from City
Council, effective January 30. The for-
mer Eastern Michigan University
professor recently took a new post as a
vice-president at Hillsdale College.
TROWBRIDGE HAS no regrets
about the time he spent in politics. He
has served nearly two full terms as a
councilman-a little less than four
years.
"It was a terribly educational and
rewarding experience," said the
literature prof. "It gave me a
knowledge of how government fun-
ctions. Perhaps most importantly, it
made me more tolerant towards gover-
nment and other political points of
view.
"I wouldn't have traded the years at
City Council for anything and I'm
leaving with a very pleasant taste in
my mouth."

AT THE HILLSDALE position
Trowbridge will be in charge of editing
books, papers and articles written at
the college, as well as bringing guest
lecturers to the school. He also plans to
do more writing and public speaking.
"The job was too good to turn down,"
Trowbridge noted. "I get to meet
fascinating people that I would not
normally encounter."
Trowbridge lost a bid for a State
Senate seat in the Republican primary
last fall, edged out in a recount by a
mere five votes by William Colburn,
who in turn was defeated in the general
election by Democrat Ed Pierce. Now,
however, Trowbridge feels that his job
at Hillsdale will be "more exciting than
being a state senator."
TROWBR.IDGE SAYS he doesn't plan
on getting involved again in politics-at
least not in the near future.
"Politics is in my blood, and I can't
say 'categorically that I'll never get
back into it," he explained. "There's
always an outside chance, but at this
point, I'd have to say that I'm virtually
done with politics."

Hong Kon
HONG KONG (AP) - Waving and
grinning, 372 Vietnamese "boat
people" from the tramp freighter Huey
Fong stepped ashore yesterday after
four weeks of misery and uncertainty
aboard the stranded ship.
The refugees were the first to leave
the ship, which had been at anchor on
Hong Kong's doorstep since Dec. 23
while its 3,300 cramped passengers
begged for refuge from authorities in
this British colony.

C'

g accepts b
LOCAL OFFICIALS who had sent out
a flotilla of patrol boats to bar the ship
when it first appeared off Hong Kong,
finally relented Friday after several
Western governments offered to take
some refugees already in Hong Kong
camps, thereby making room for the
Huey Fong passengers.
The 372 appeared weary from their
ordeal, but smiled at reporters as they
stepped from small boats that brought
-them in from the 2,290-ton freighter.

Trowbridge
Since Trowbridge was due up for re-
election in April, Republican E. Ed-
ward Hood, an Ann Arbor lawyer, has
beenrappointed by Mayor Louis Belcher
to serve out the rest of his term.
oat people
As they disembarked, one 15-year-old
refugee girl collapsed from shock on
the wharf in Kowloon, Hong Kong's
twin city across the harbor. She was
rushed to a hospital and a government
spokesman said she was in fair con
dition.
THE OTHERS, bundled against the
chilly breezes in clothes provided for
them, were taken by double-decker
buses to a former Royal Air Force base
near Hong Kong's Kaitak Airport. The
airbase was renovated recently under a
contingency plan to house refugees.
Thereathey will await resettlement
overseas.
Authorities said the first group to
land comprised 67 families, and they
would be the only group brought ashore
yesterday.
Reporters were not allowed to speak
with the refugees as they disembarked.
IMMIGRATION officials, mean-
while, continued to interview those
remaining aboard the Huey Fong.
Police detained the captain and crew
for questioning and seized the ship's log
and other documents, Marine Director
James Alexander told a news conferen-
ce.
The government had threatened the
captain with a four-year prison term for
refusing their orders to take the ship to
Taiwan, its original destination.
