Student Government Council last night appointed six
students for the Commission on Resource Allocation, a new
body which is to study and advise University administrators
on budget priority setting procedures.
Although President Robben Fleming had asked that SGC
propose six student members from whom he could choose
four, SGC Vice President Jerry De Grieck explained, "We
feel that we must have adequate representation of women,
blacks, and students from the various schools and colleges,
but by appointing only four students, this could not be accom-
plished. SG" should name the students, not President

trickled in from Detroit precincts -favoring his Democratic
Milliken, 48, seeking his first elected term as governor,
led state Sen. Sander Levin 1,223,791 to 1,109,481 with 88
per cent of the precincts counted.
However, the remaining precincts all were in the Detroit
area where the liberal Levin is, popular. As each new batch
of returns came in, Milliken's lead was whittled further.
If he comes up in the remaining Detroit precincts with a
margin expected of him, Levin stands a chance of overtaking
the moderate, mild-mannered Milliken.
DETROIT (/P)-Two Democratic
candidates held their own in out-
state Michigan and were. deluged
with votes in the metropolitan De-
troit area to claim seats on the /
Board of Regents.
Paul B'rown, 36, an attorney
from Petoskey, led all contestants
in Tuesday's -general election, qs
he received 960,254 votes in 75 per
dent, or 4,553, of 6,041 precincts
reporting. He held 26, per cent of
the total vote, but 32 per cent in
initial returns in Wayne County.
Democrat James L. Waters got
902,533 votes or 25 per cent.
Republican candidates who held
24 per cent each statewide, but
only 19 per cent in Detroit were
Paul G. Goebel Jr. with 885,208
votes and Jack H. Schuler with
George Kindred, 45, of Pinck-
ney, had 4,307 votes and Thomas
B. Staffing, 51, of Detroit, 4,013
votes as candidates from the
American Independent party.
Candidates from one of the
minor parties, Thomas Vernier
and Marsha Wisch of the Socialist'
Workers party both of whom live
in Ann Arbor, won 910 and 912
votes in Washtenaw County.
Waters, who was chairman of
the University's Black Law Stu-
dent Alliance during the Black Ac-
tion Movement strike last spring
strongly believes in University in-
dependence from the Legislature.
"I feel that our 'University cam-
pus must remain autonmous and
free from unnecessary control by
the State Legislature," he says.
Brown, on the other hand, em-
phasizes the University's depend-
ance on the state for appropri-
ations and operational funds. "One
of the Regents' primary jobs in-
cludes selling the University to the
state and its citizens," he says.
The election of two Democrats
creates a four-four party split' on
the board. With Republican Ger-
trude Huebner consistently voting
with Democrat members the Re-
gents are expected to assume a
more liberal position.
Democrat Don Stevens, chair-
man of the Michigan State Board
of Trustees, won re-election to a
third term on the board.

Veteran Democratic Rep. Al-

departures of their Democratic
holders. In the 106th district of
the northern Lower Peninsula,
Republican Roger Friske, a self-
professed John Bircher, defeated
Democrat Peter Johnson and
Glenn Law, a write-in candidate.
A few factors could still change
the 57-53 balance. In Detroit's
unpredictable 17th District, the
race remained a toss-up between
Republican Ronald McClune and
Democrat William Brodhead be-
cause of computer foul-ups and
vote tally delays.
In the 83rd district, the returns
in the race between Democrat
Mansour and Republican Kelley
were equally inconclusive.
