Esch advertisement ccilied 'wrong'
Fear and loathing
"VOTE OR WE'RE DEAD" reads the headline
on one of the latest pieces of State Representative
candidate Rae Weaver's campaign literature. The
"we're dead," refers supposedly to Democratic
opponent Perry Bullard. The flyer asks "Are you
ready for two more years of: Deep Throat-shown
on public property; Dope smoking-with young
girls on the Diag; Irresponsible and ineffective
representation; Your present state rep.-Perry
Bullard; Or have you had enough?" Bullard called
the message "bizarre".
Fo jtik mirage?
At about 0 p.m. yesterday, A Daily reporter
spotted a man tearing down a poster of Human
Rights Party county commissioner candidate Diane
Hall at the corner of Thayer and Huron. The man
was a passenger in a yellow Volkswagen, license
number FVZ-482, whose driver closely resembled
County Commissioner Kathy Fojtik (D-Ann Arbor),
now running for re-election against Hall. Question-
ed about the incident last night, Fojtik claimed that
she had been campaigning in the Seventh, Miller
and Liberty street area and said that the incident
must have been a "mirage." A yellow Volkswagen,
license number FVZ-482, however, was later seen
parked in the garage at Fojtik's Ann Street ad-

Sex 'in government
Californians will vote on Tuesday whether to
revise sexist terminology in the state constitution,
If the °measure carries, Assemblyman would be-
come "member of the Assembly," Congressman
would be "representative in Congress," but judges
will still be referred to by the pronoun "he" al-
though the state has a number of female judges.
In an apparently neutral move, the postmaster, will
remain the postmaster.
Sex in the schools
Meanwhile in the Midwest, another bastion of
the sexist establishment has been struck down.
Despite his fears that Bowling Green State Univer-
sity in Ohio wasn't' ready for it, Richard Morrow,
a 6-foot-i tall American Studies major, was elected
college homecoming queen, defeating nine women
for the coveted title.
Not everybody is having money problems. Big
maritime labor unions have given another $141,000
in recent weeks to members of Congress who
supported a bill that meant thousands of jobs for
American seamen at the price of higher oil and
gasoline prices for landlubbers. Since the beginning
of the year,, the unions have given more than
$500 000 to 179 members of Congress who backed
a bill, requiring a 25 per cent increase in the
amount of oil carried on U.S. flagships. One
Congressman who received a donation from the
unions, Rep. Jonathan Bingham (D-N.Y.) returned
a $1,000 contribution. "It smacked too much of a
payoff," he said.

U.S. Congressman M a r v i n
Esch (R-Ann Arbor) has im-
properly made it appear as if
Common Cause, a national non-
p a r t i s a n organization which
never supports political candi-
dates, has endorsed his re-elec-
tion, a spokesman for the group
told The Daily yesterday.
In a sharply-worded telegram
sent to Esch last night, Common
Cause Vice President David
Cohen asked the Congressman
to refrain from further use of
an advertisement that "clearly,
fosters the false impression that
Common Cause does support
THE PAID political adver-
tisement in question is a repro-
duction of a laudatory letter
on the group's stationery to
Common Cause chastises Congressman
Esch from the area Common
Cause co-ordinator John Hath-
away, a longtime Republican.
The letter was never author-
ized by Common Cause, accord-
ing to Tom Belford, the or-
ganization's Washington, D.C.,
Hathaway overstepped his du-
ties and exercised "bad judg-
ment" in writing the letter, Bel-
BATTLING for his fifth con-
secutive term in the House of
Representatives, Esch is op-
posed in next Tuesday's general
election by D e m o c r a t John
Reuther and Phil Carroll of the
Human Rights Party.
In a statement released late
last night, R e u t h e r called
the Congressman's advertise-
ment "another all too typical
and deceptive 'maneuver by Mr.
Esch . . . the deception, eva-
sion, and old time politics of
Mr. Esch have gone on too long
and the voters will render him
inoperative next Tuesday."
Hathaway could not be reach-
ed for comment concerning the
IN ADDITION to Esch,
George Thorne, treasurer of his.
c a m p a i g n committee which
placed the advertisement in Fri-
day's Daily, and Reuther re-
ceived copies of the telegram
Thorne said he knew nothing
about the advertisement because
he handles only financial mat-
ters for the re-election cam-
paign and has no direct involve-
ment in compiling press mate-
Cohen told Esch that "the let-
ter was improperly sent by Mr.
Hathaway and improperly used
by your campaign committee."
THE LETTER appears in the
advertisement under the large
headline: "C o m m o n Cause
Says: 'A Job Well Done Con-
gressman Esch.' " Below the
letter in small type is the fol-
lowing disclaimer: "The Mar-
vin Esch Campaign Committee
in no way intends to indicate
that this letter constitutes an
endorsement since C o m m o n
Cause cannot endorse candi-
dates for public office."
Cohen stated that the dis-
claimer "would in no way
change voter perceptions in the
heat of the partisan campaign."
The letter, addressed to Esch
at his Washington office and
dated Oct. 21 of this year,
praises him for supporting Com-
mon Cause sponsored legislation
on campaign finance reform.
CONGRESS considered that
measure in late July and early
August. Generally C o m m o n
Cause sends brief letters of
thanks to congressmen backing
its measures at the time they
are undertaken by the legis-
But Hathaway's letter "far
exceeded simple recognition of
a favorable vote," according to
He also charged that sending
the letter shortly before the
election and its subsequent pub-
lication in a political advertise-
ment clearly aids Esch's can-
didacy "through an inappropri-
ate use of the Common Cause

BELL PACES 21-7 WIN
By JOHN KAHLER
Special To The Daily
BLOOMINGTON - "21-7 is just as good as 49-0,"
claimed Ann Arbor radio personality Bob Ufer while the
Michigan football team took a Greyhound back to the In-
dianapolis airport after yesterday's game with the Indiana
It is doubtful, however, that Ufer would be able to get
Bo Schembechler to agree. For the third straight time, the
Maize and Blue barely survived a scare on the road.
AFTER SPOTTING Michigan a 14-0 halftime lead, Lee Corso's
Hoosiers mounted an 80-yard, 12-play drive scoring drive. Indiana
capped the march with a five-yard touchdown strike from quarter-
back Terry Jones to split end Trent Smock early in the fourth
The Hoosiers proceeded to
gamble on an onside kick. But
Frank Stavroff booted the ball
too hard, and it hit the turf on
the Michigan 40. Luck was with
the Hoosiers, however, as Jim
Smith bobbled the ball and kept
retreating until the Indianians
nailed him on- the 19.
The Wolverines marched down
the field, with the interior of-
fensive line opening big holes
for Chuck Heater, and Gordon
Bell slipping around the right
side for nine.
THE HOOSIER defense event-
ually stiffened, and on fourth
and two at the Indiana 28, Sch-
embechler elected to go for a
field goal. With 9:12 left to
play three points would have
just about sewed up the contest,
but Mike Lantry's 42-yard at-
tempt sailed wide to the left.
A 15-yard Jones-to-Smock pass
was all the Hoosiers could net
on the ensuing possession. Fol-
lowing the punt, Michigan again
attempted to mount one of its
patented ball control drives. The
Indiana defense had other ideas.
"We felt that if we rested our
defense, we would do well,"
said Corso. "We used 14 defen-
sive linemen out there."
AS A RESULT of this state-
gem, the tired Michigan offen-
sive linemen were not able to
movewanybody out. The Wolver-
ines were forced to punt, three
plays later, and Indiana downed
the kick on its own 19.
Jones immediately hit Smock
on another completion, this time
for 18 yards. A flanker revers ;
failed when Greg Morton nailed
Keith Calvin for a loss of six.
Courtney Snyder more than
made up for that loss with a
15 yard dash on a delay, and
Jones carried for a first down
at the 39.

The Senate minority leader said American voters "have a

"As of today, 1974 is a bad year for Republicans. But 1976

BURGOYNE, who was de-

the accusations and charges.

Burgoyne has called the nega-
