County elections draw little notice

(Continued frofi Page 1)
NRP has charged that Fojtik
abused county taxpayers' mon-
ey for self-serving junkets to
Washington and Miami, but all
of the funds spent were ap-
proved by the county board and
Fojtik accused the third party
of an attempted smear.
ONE HRP activist admitted
yesterday the party's strategy
has been "to put Kathy on the?
defensive and let her put her
foot in her mouth."
Fojtik says she has done the
groundwork on numerous coun-
ty projects and is "not a grand-;
stander."
HRP candidate Hall stresses;
that her campaign has brought

ly like a slap in the face to the
voters. It's like saying they're

executive and should have one
appointed for them."

better chance of winning Tees-
day than Hall does, "especially
if people don't vote a straight
Democratic ticket." He bases
his belief on the results of his
canvassing done in the last five
weeks.
"I've met less than a dozen!
people who've actually talked
to my opponent," Wegbreitt
claimed. "If the amount of
campaigning is any indication'
I should win easily."
Democratic hopeful McClary's
campaign has been nearly in-
visible. Her strongest appeal
has been her reputation as a
community activist and her in-
volvement with the women's
movement in the city.
McCLARY IS something of an
expert on rape, havingworked
on a City Council committee to
study the problem, the Michigan {

Legislative Task Force on Rape,
and a publication entitled "Free-
dom from Rape."
McClary advocates public ed-
ucation programs, training for
members of the Sheriff's de-
partment, and increased public
transportation to combat rape.
She also says taxes need not
be raised to pay for those pro-
grams, since federal funds are
available.
While McClary is seen as a
slight favorite inathisbrace, the
15th district may be HRP's
best chance for a victory, thanks
to the district's thick concen-
tration of student voters.

Fojtik agrees with some of
these stands, disagreeing with
the HRP on the issue of public
transportation bonds which she
approves of, and the veterans

Hundreds of persons have
mailed, telephoned or wired get-

pital spokesperson said.
The 61-year-old former presi-
dent was experiencing restless-
ness and receiving medication
for pain and occasional nausea.
He also was taking nourishment
and antibiotics intravenously.
ZIEGLER said Nixon was re-
ceiving blood transfusions yes-

Lungren said Nixon received
three pints of blood to counter-
act shock and internal bleeding,
and "several more units are
being held in reserve for him."
Nixon continued under the
care of specially trained inten-
sive care nurses, said Lungren,!
adding: "All emergency resusci-
tation equipment for any con-
tingency are at his bedside."
HE SAID Nixon's heart ac-

Strauss has joined the broad-

But Strauss' candidacy is not
