The hardest job around yesterday had to be that of a Daily
photographer. Lensman Ken Fink was given the usual election
day assignment: "Go out and get pictures of people voting." Poor
Ken returned a few hours later and told the ,editor on desk:
"I tried, but I couldn't find anybody voting." Ken tried again
and finally found a voter, whom he photographed with relish.
School job rejected
Who wants -to be superintendent )f schools? Not David Trost,
the prime candidate for the post. He told the Board of Education
he wanted nothing to do with what may be the hottest hot seat
in local government. The search for a successor to Bruce Mc-
Pherson continues now, with an absolutely underwhelming crowd
of hopefuls jostling for the post
And the strike goes on
Washtenaw County C rcuit Judge Edward Deake yesterday
denied a motion to force striking Willow Run teachers back to
work and ordered both sides into his chmbers to resume nego-
tiations. The Willow Run Board of Education had sought a re-
straining order agast the 218 teachers who have been on strike
over a contract dpute since last Wednesday.
Local opposition to the planned "Super Sewer" for South-
eastern Michigan is growing. At a press conference yesterday,
Citizens Opposed to Super Sewer (COSS) described the plan as
"environmentally unsound and an attempt by Detroit to fleece
Ann Arbor." COSS urged interested persons to attend the En-
vironmental Protection Agency's public hearing on the issue. The
hearing will be held Wednesday at 1:30 p.m. and again at 7:30
p.m. at the Sheraton-etro Inn at Detroit Metro Airport. More in-
formation can be obtained from COSS chairperson Polly Reynolds-
Warner at 769-1042.

SAN CLEMENTE - President Nixon and South Vietnamese
President Nguyen Van Thieu yesterday called on Hanoi to ob-
serve the ceasefire agreement and work with them to achcieve
reconciliation in Vietnam in an atmosphere of enduring peace.
The two presidents, opening two days of talks on post-war rela-
tions between their two countries, stressed the need for scrupu-
lous observance of the ceasefire accord signed in Paris on
January 27. They also began planning future American economic
and military aid programs to support the Saigon government in
its political struggle with the Viet Cong.
Watergate still open
WASHINGTON - Sen. Sam Ervin (D-N.C.) yesterday re-
jected a White House effort to obtain special treatment for
presidential aides in the Senate's investigation of the Watergate
affair. Ervin repeated his vow he will seek the arrests of White
House aides if they do not honor subpeonas to testify under oath
in formal private and'public sessions.
While Ervin was making his statement in Washington, the
San Clemente White House released a statement charging that
Ervin's committee investigating the affair has been "plagued by
irresponsible leaks of tidal wave proportions" and said its chair-
man should "get his own disorganized house in order." Press
secretary Ron Ziegler said, however, "the White House intends
to cooperate with the committee." '
The Beatles . . . Again?
NEW YORK - Businessman Allen Klein, the man at the
center of the dispute which split up the Beatles, lost his hold on
their financial affairs yesterday. The move appeared to be at the
instigation of the remaining three Beatles, setting off specula-
tion that they may now reunite with Paul McCartney, who broke
from the group because of his objections to Klein. With Klein's
influence removed, the fact that John, George and Ringo had
been recording together recently gave immediate rise to hopes
that Paul might be persuaded to join them.

Taking advantage of an exceptionally low turnout, Re-

Republican council candidates won election last night-giv-

The other two council races were won by Democrats as
the Human Rights Party (HRP) was completely shut out.
Many observers feel the results may well signal the death of
the radical third party.
Joining Stephenson in victory were Republicans Robert

four, and five and Democrats Norris Thomas and Carol Jones
in wards one and two.

NEWLY-ELECTED MAYOR James Stephenson flashes a big grin last night as he poses for cameras at GOP headquarters. Stephenson
was all smiles and predictions last night at the Republican affair he ld in Webers' Inn, as he and three others swept the GOP into abso-
lute control of City Hall.
HRP IN TROUBLE
By JONATHAN MILLER
Daily News Analysis
It will be a staunchly Republican regime that takes the reins
of power at next Monday's City Council meeting.
Though the GOP failed to gain a majority of the vote in yes-
terday's election, it will have no trouble maintaining a comfortable
margin around the council table on the second floor of the city hall.
No less than six Republicans will flank Mayor-elect James
Stephenson at the table.
Against them will be pitted only two Human Rights Party
(HRP) and two Democratic council members.
The election represents more than merely a Republican victory,
The city's fledgling Human Rights Party now finds itself in
the most critical mess of its brief history.
Its mayoral candidate, Be Kaimowitz, acted out the role of
spoiler right on the Retpublican cue. If she hadn't run and her

Further, HRP hopes in wards one and two, where HRP can-
didates won last year, were dashed by Democrats.
Clearly, the Democrats and the Human Rights Party must
aim for some kind of reconciliation if they wish to run the city as
they have for the past twelve months.
But the HRP defeat yesterday puts the young party in a
weak bargaining position. As of yesterday, HRP has lost elections
on three occasions in the past year.
HRP bids for the school board last summer, the state represen-
tative and county commissioner seats in November, and now the
mayor and council yesterday, have all met with ignominious defeat.
Yesterday the defeat was particularly bitter for HRP candidate
Andrei Joseph in student-heavy Ward One. He finished in third

The turnout of 31,597 represent-

race over 51 per cent of the voters
turned out. In the last mayoralty
election in 1971, the turnout was
approximately 64 per cent.
The mood was jubilant at Web-
er's West Ballroom where the Re-
publicans met last night for their
victory celebration. Some 300 of
the faithful packed the small room
and cheered loudly as the vote to-
tals appeared on a large tote-

claimed mayor-elect Stephenson.
Joined by his six Republican coun-

that majority we will provide Ann

government that will put the city
back together again."

gathered at the First Unitarian

whole rather pleased with the re-
"HRP is dead," exclaimed for-
mer Democratic Councilman Ro-
bert Faber. "We killed them, but
they were slow to die," added Don-
ald Koster a local radical attorney.
Such sentiment seemed to be at
the heart of the Democratic opti-
-mism last night. Reasoning that
their strong showing in wards one
and two indicated their dominance
in student areas, Democrats feel
that they can come back in a year
and regain their majority.
Victorious council candidate
Norris Thomas expressed this
feeling when he said, "We won the
battle, but we lost the war. But
next year we are going to win the
battle and the war."
