Daily News Analysis
A long and arduous series of presiden-
tial primaries begins next week as five
Democrats and three Republicans vie
for their respective nominations.
The New Hampshire presidential pri-
mary, the site of Eugene McCarthy's
moral victory over President Lyndon
Johnson four years ago leading to the
incumbent's withdrawal from the race,
will take place Tuesday.
Sens. Hubert Humphrey of Minnesota
and Henry Jackson of Washington, New
York Rep. Shirley Chisholm and Ala-
bama Governor George Wallace all
chose to skip the nation's first primary.
Furthermore, there is no concrete fo-
cus to the campaign as there was in
1968. Then, the choice was clear and
simple-either one supported the Presi-
dent's Vietnam war policy, or one didn't.
This year, however, a plethora of rel-
ative unknowns crowds the Democratic
field while Republicans from liberal and
conservative wings of the GOP struggle
futilely against President Nixon's non-
The Democratic side of the ballot lists
Sens. George McGovern of South. Da-
kota Edmund Muskie of Maine, and.
Vance Hartke of Indiana as well as Los
Angeles Mayor Sam Yorty and Edward
Coll, a Connecticut social worker. Ar-
kansas Rep. Wilbur Mills is running as
a write-in candidate.
Every candidate, with the exception
of Yorty, has conceded a numerical vic-
tory to Muskie. The question has there-
fore become, "How big will the victory
Many observers have seen the primary
as a defeat for Muskie unless the Maine
Senator can garner over 50 per cent
of the vote.
The margin between a "victory" and
"a defeat" for Muskie could be as small
as five per cent of the vote which would
amount to perhaps 3,500 votes.
It is obvious that no one could pin a
national trend on such a small number
of votes either way, so it is not unlike-
ly that the primary will become a mean-
ngless numbers game.
What really matters, though, is not
so much whether New Hampshire is a
major victory for one candidate or an-
other, but if the people think it is

Six students filed for an in-
junction against the Univer-
sity yesterday aimed at end-
ing the University's policy of
charging out-of-state tuition
to students registered to vote
in the state.
The plaintiffs - Brian Hays,
Law, David Alden, Law, Caryn
Miller, ('73), Larry Mills grad.,
Timothry Whitsitt, grad, and Gary

a temporary injunction against

Detectives investigating the recent wave of campus fires

Cabin for sale
Phil Wendall looks out the door of his homemade log cabin as he watches passers-by change classes
across the street. The cabin is built atop a yellow 1946 Dodge truck. Wendall built the cabin him-
self, saying, "I'm into a building trip, man. It's been winter and too cold to do shit. Now it's spring-
time and I've just got the itch to build another one." He plans to sell the cabin in Ann Arbor.
