(NWRO) proposal for a mini-
mum income of $5500 for each
family of four.
Esch, 43, a former Wayne
State University speech profes-
sor backs the Administration on
many issues, but supports with-
drawal of American troops from
Indochina by the middle of next
The candidates agree on some
issues - including the abolition
of the draft and an end to the
Congressional seniority system.
They both support large cuts in
the defense budget - Esch esti-
mates "$5 or $10 billion", while
Stillwagon says "a third". And
they both support increased ex-
penditure on domestic programs.
Esch has generally, in h is
second term, voted for increas-
ed expenditure on domestic pro-
grams, though there have been
cases where this was not true.
For example, this year, Esch
voted to cut the amount in a bill
giving government authority for
grants for urban mass trans-
port. Esch has generally voted
in support of military appro-
priations, while Stillwagon says
Congress should "refuse to ap-
propriate funds for the war."
Stillwagon expresses m u c h
stronger opposition to the over-
all conduct of American fore-
ign policy than does Esch. He
says we should remove the "mil-
itaristic point of view from our
"Our policy should be based,"
he says, "on the idea of elim-
inating poverty and aiding sta-
bility." He suggests we channel
a higher proportion of our GNP
into aid to developing countries,
to be dispersed by organizations
such as the World Bank. Still-
wagon criticizes U.S. govern-
ment support of rightist regimes
and supports recognition of
China and Cuba.
"The President is generally
on the right course in South-
east Asia," Esch says, though
he supports a much more rapid
troop withdrawal. Last year,
Esch voted in favor of a Con-
gressional resolution commend-
ing President Nixon for seeking
"peace with justice." He sup-
ports Administration m o v e s
aimed at "opening up avenues
of communication" with China,
but regards recognition of China
and Cuba as "premature.,"
Esch says we should "try to
deal in a realistic way" with gov-
ernments of various types, "no
matter what the internal policy
might be", and he cites Nixon's
trip in which the President visit-
ed Greece, Spain, and Yugosla-
via, as an illustration of that
On the question of conscrip-
tion, Stillwagon favors "not only
an end to the draft, and an all-
volunteer army, but an end to
registration for the draft." He
also favors amnesty for draft re-
sisters after the war has ended
and the draft has been abolish-
ed. Esch agrees on an end Ito
the draft, but opposes an am-
nesty for draft resisters.
Esch, who is chairman of the
House Republican task force on
social security and human
needs, and a member of the
House Education and Labor
Committee, supports the Nixon
welfare plan (and has voted on
the liberal side on various
amendments to the bill) He has
been an author of bills for re-
lated programs in manpower re-
training, and "effective child
day-care centers." He calls Con-
gress "derelict" in not having
passed these programs.
Stillwagon calls the welfare
plan "a step forward", but says
"the level of funding is not
nearly enough", and supports
the NWRO proposal which would
set a $5500 figure where the Nix-
on plan sets a $1600 figure. Still-
wagon suggests such a program
be administered as a "nega-
tive income tax".
Philosophically, Esch seems
more committed to the tradi-
tional free-enterprise ethic than
Stillwagon. Stillwagon says he
does not find the existing dis-
tribution of wealth in the U.S.
acceptable. "At the same time,
I'm not ready to desert the sys-
tem," he says.
"We need to work at all lev-
els, not only within the tradi-
tional two-party system and
political campaigns, but we need
to assert pressure in all direc-
tions, so we can bring about the
kind of reform we're talking
Esch responds differently. "The
system we operate under is an
attempt to give a person the
possibility of contributing to so-
ciety,hand in turn receiving
something for what he contri-
butes," he says. "This is a phil-
osophy which I think has been
lost by some who suggest some-
thing is wrong with the system."
"I think the government's
role," he continues, "is to make
sure to do everything we can to
give every person the possibility
of developing to his full poten-
tial and contribute everything he
can to society."
Esch and Stillwagon both op-
pose the denial of government
financial aid to students con-
victed in disruptions - and
Esch, accodringly, voted against
that amendment when it came
through the House. Esch also
opposed action in Congress that
would cut off aid to Universities
not presenting codes of conduct.
Both candidates speak strong-
ly against the use of violent
tactics in student disruptions.
The two candidates differ
sharply on placing responsibili-
ty for the nation's economic
Esch blames Congress for not
passing programs to deal effec-
tively with unemployment. He
notes that much employment is+
due to the cutbacks in military
spending. He cites a $57 billion
difference between federal and
government income and ex-
penditure during the '60s.
Stilwagon blames the Ad-
ministration for the nations
economic troubles. "We're con-
tinuing to finance the war out
of inflation in this country.
Stillwagon supports the aboli-
tion of all laws that discrimi-
nate against homosexuals, and
end to government discrimina-
tion on hiring homosexuals.
Esch is non-committal on this
question, saying, "I haven't
made a judgment on that."

Congressman Mary Esch...
* was among the first members of Congress to
propose a practical means of de-escalating the bombing
-a step which led to the Paris talks.
e has co-sponsored a resolution which would bring
U. S. troops home by July of 1971.
* opposed the Cambodian action and fights against
expansion of the war elsewhere in Southeast Asia.
* supports the call for an immediate cease fire.
* "No other issue can take precedence over the need
to end the tragic war in Vietnam, bring our boys home,
and help the Vietnamese rebuild their war-torn
economy. Our national policy has started in that
direction, but not nearly fast enough. The United States
cannot and should not police the world."
Thinks for himself.
