Clarence Dukes, a conserva-
tive, and incumbents Henry
Johnson and Cecil Warner each
won three-year terms on the
city school board in the past
June election..
Ten candidates, representing
all sides of the political spectrum
from radical to conservative
competed in the contest.
In the election, marked by
an expected low turnout of
about 30 per cent of all eligible
voters, Human Rights Party
(HRP) candidate Sonia Yaco,
a 15 year old student at Tap-
pan Junior High School, gar-
nered a surprising 1,240 write-
in votes.
Yaco was prohibited from ap-
pearing on the ballot because
state law requires candidates
to be over 18 years old,
According to an HRP state-
ment released on the night of
the election, "The write - in
votes for Yaco represent the
most phenomenal support for

a candidate not on the ballot
in Ann Arbor history."
HRP canaidates Curtis Holt
and Gretchen Groth Wilson
finished last in the contest, in
which 10candidates competed
for three open seats.
Johnson, recently appointed
vice president for student serv-
ices, commented that night on
the effect the election will have
on the formerly 5-4 conserva-
tive-liberal split on the nine-
person board.
"I'm realistic enough to
know that the board composi-
tion is now a six to three con-
servative majority. This makes
the job more difficult," he said.
Holt and Wilson scored clear
victories in the heavily student-
populated precincts of the First
and Second Wards. According
to Johnson the votes won by
HRP "probably hurt signifi-
cantly" the candidacy of Ron-
ald Bishop and Nancy Brussolo,
two liberal candidates.
Warner won with 7,873 votes.
Johnson come in second with
7,538 votes, and Dukes garnered
6,750 votes.

M. Terry Martin finished
fourth with 6,484 votes. Vote to-
tals for Lotty Wickliffe, Bishop
and Brussolo were very close.
These candidates polled 5,689,
5,673 and 5,654 votes respec-
tively.
Wilson won 3,315 votes and
Holt took 2,876 votes.
HRP supporters termed the
election a success. "With two-
thirds of the students absent
one one-third as many workers
as in the city Council election,

we still won two-thirds of the
percentage for the City Council
victory," an HRP statement
said.
Though the election is called
non-partisan, Holt, Wilson and
Yaco ran on a unified party
platform.
Two sets of the remain-
ing candidates received group
endorsements, based on com-
mon general positions.
Bishop, Brussolo and John-
son received the endorsement of
~Citizens to Assure a Responsive
Educational System (CARES), a
community organizaton.
Each, however, according to
Johnson, ran a separate cam-
paign. "Philosophically we pro-
bably agree"he commented
"but practically there are areas
where we disagree."
Dukes, Wickliffe and Warner
also formed a rough alliance
based on more conservative
views.
They emphasized their opposi-
tion to busing and support of
more rigid discipline policies.
M. Terry Martin ran individ-
ually.
A variety of issues were dis-
cussed during the campaign.
Busing, racism, student rights,
community involvement in de-
cision making, the credibility of
the administration and sexism
were the controversial issues
that the candidates debated.
The school board last y ea r
rejected by a one-vote margin
the "pairing" plan in the Clin-
ton school district which w o uld
have involved busing.

The average American
wants a car that is well
made. That's very econom-
ical to drive and service.
That will start and go
almost anywhere in any
weather. A car with the
best warranty'he can find.

And high trade-in value.
And a low price.
The average American
wants a lot. But he is
definitely not dreaming.
