Levin criticizes Milliken'spolicies

(Continued from Page 1)
A longtime leader in the'
Michigat Democratic Party and,
a state senator from 1966-1970,:
Levin decisively trounced for-
mer Detroit Mayor Jerome
Cavanagh by a 2-1 margin in
the August primary. Paull
Brown, a University Regent and
member of an influential politi-
cal family, is sharing the ticket!
with Levin as lt. governor.
Since Levin officially announc-{
ed his candidacy last- spring the
main thrust. of his campaign,
has centered around economic
issues. He has repeatedly charg-'
ed that Milliken has led the
state into a financial crisis that
includes a $600 million deficit
in next year's budget.

"the waste and the fraud in the
welfare system."
Claiming that the Milliken ad-
ministration has "done nothing"
to fight welfare fraud, Levin
commented during an August
dlebate, "those who can work,
should. There should also be
some inducement or require-
ment to find employment."
IN A response to a question
concerning his stance on wel-
fare he affirmed, "Yes, I am
a conservative in some re-
spects."
Milliken, ruffled by Levin's
repeated attacks on his admin-
istration, charged that the
Democrat is a "me too" can-
didate.

POLITICAL reform, the econ-
omy, unemployment - these
are all issues. Levin is comfort-
able discussing. When confront-

Been getting some heavy mail lately
and since it merits a personal answer
rather than a media one this is a good
opportunity to have a kinda soft, low key
multi-contest. Next to a down home holi-
day turkey stuffing or a live Christmas
tree decorated without any store bought
glop, I've always enjoyed the wherewithal
of creativity that goes into a Halloween
pumpkin. So if you place a face on the
little pumpkin to your right, I'll have a
sculptor friend pick out a few of her favor-
ites and sculpt them up. Then if I can
borrow a decent camera I'll send the lucky
few some choice shots of their sculpted
pumpkin and statuesque sculptor.
There will also be small
but well thought out prizes for:
1. Give me another word for
"contest." "Contest" is too
overly competitive a word x..
to use in this frail world we
live in.
2. Does laughter travelt
faster than the speed of
sound? (in as few words f"
as possible.) rka
3. The shortest list of bev-
erages that really don't
mix with Akadama, the
wine you can mix.
(tomato juice, etc.)
And in closing, to V-
pay the bills here are a .
couple of prize Akadama
party recipes.
