State representative candidates
discuss mental health question

By CHRIS PARKS
Democratic state representative
candidate Perry Bullard and his
Human Rights Party (HRP) oppo-
nent Steve Burghardt last night en-
dorsed a system of "crises inter-
vention teams" to replace the
practice of forcible commitment of
potentially dangerous mental pa-
tients.-
Burghardt attacked involuntary
commitment as "abridging the
freedom of the individual" based
on "an intuitive guess as to what
will happen in the future."
The only reasonable criteria for
forcible commitment, he said, "is
if a criminal law has been broken."
Their remarks came at a candi-
date's forum sponsored by the
Huron Valley chapter of the Na-
tional Association of Social Work-
ers held in the Campus Inn.
The session-an epic talk-fest of
over two hours in duration-fea-
tured the four local candidates as
well as state representative can-
didates from three neighboring dis-

representation on c o m m u n i t y
health boards, and fee payment for
mental health services as well as
forced hospitalization.
The locals, whose remarks came
at the very end of the wearying
program, agreed on' at least one
point-that it is too easy to have
someone committed.
Bullard, Burghardt and Alan
Harris, the Conservative Party
candidate, all opposed involuntary
commitment in principal.
Republican Mike Renner endorsed
tightening the criteria for such
commitments to involve only cases
in which subjects present a clear
danger to. themselves or others.
He stopped short of opposing all
forcible hospitalization, however,
saying, "Society has a commitment
to prevent all violent acts which
can be prevented."
On the question of payment for
hospital services, all candidates
opposed imposing fees on those
hospitalized against their will.

for mental health care while Ren-
ner supported billing based on
ability to pay.
Both Burghardt and Bullard said
all health care-mental and other-
wise-should be a free service of,
the state.

with the members in the large

tables installed in the room soon,
she maintained.
After a member socializes for
awhile, she said, he may indi-
cate which girls he wants for his
massage. "We try to split them
up equally among the girls," she
added, "but if a member wants a
particular girl, we'll try to ac-
commodate him."

Not happening
Sorry, fans, but contrary to rumors, Thomas Eagleton, the
former Democratic vice presidential candidate, will not be
speaking here in the next few days, according to the Ann Arbor
McGovern headquarters. Guess you'll have to put away those
nifty McGovern-Eagleton T-shirts for a bit longer.
Not going to happen
There is no gratitude in the sheriff's department. Washtenaw
County Undersheriff Harold Owings said the other day that if
he wins the election for sheriff he will not appoint his opponent-
Sheriff Douglas Harvey-as undersheriff. "I want to say now
that if elected there is no way under God's green earth that I
will appoint Douglas Harvey as my undersheriff."
De Mau Mau
CHICAGO-A black Vietnam veteran says De Mau Mau, a
group police charge is a black terrorist gang that killed nine
persons in Illinois, is organized internationally among U.S.
servicemen. But he denied that it espouses violence. Six young
men who police allege are members of the group are charged
in connection with the slayings of nine whites, including the
slaughter of two families. Two others charged in the slayings
were being sought. Jimmie Williams, 22, said the group is made
up of blacks, Chicanos, Puerto Ricans and American Indians
and was originally formed to combat racial persecution. "These
guys in Chicago-the murder suspects-are hurting De Mau Maus
and making it hard for the boys on the bases," he said. Author-
ities said all of those arrested were Vietnam veterans who were
dishonorably discharged.1
Commie plot No. 37
SAIGON-Communist troops seized half a dozen central high-
lands villages in what military spokesmen are calling a "plant-
the-flag campaign." Saigon sources claim a communist plot, with
code name Resolution X10 (whatever that means) is aimed at
raising the red, blue and yellow in as many villages as possible.
All the news . .
Among the revolutionary changes taking place these days
in the Philippines is the overthrow of the old adage: "No news
is good news." President Ferdinand Marcos has approved the
establishment of a new newspaper dedicated to printing only
"positive news." The paper-dubed "The Times-Journal"-will
hire only "respectable" journalists and will not be allowed to
comment on the "positive news" it prints.

Davis talks
on nutrition
(Continued from Page 1)
She also said that doses of mag-
nesium will cure bedwetters.
Davis told of a man with crip-
pling arthritis "who can now walk
with barely a limp, after taking
dietary supplements."
In opposition to the miracles,
Davis also prescribed dire conse-
quences for those who ignore their
proper vitamins.
"A pregnant woman, put on a
diet to keep her weight down, prob-
ably won't have enough protein
and will produce a baby who will
have no attention span and won't
be able to read in school," Davis
threatens.
And, "If a person conceives,
without enough zinc in their body,
the DNA and RNA can't be formed
and the child will .be malformed."
The audience cheered Davis when
she 'spoke in favor of breast-feed-
ing new born babies. Breast-feed-
ing, she contended, would eliminate
allergies.
Davis used creative folklore to
defend the dietary use of milk.
"I've had people tell me that
milk is mucous forming. Well,"
explained Davis, "of course milk
is associated with mother in our
minds. She fed us, and gave us
bottle a few hundred times. So,
drinking milk brings on the need
in us to cry, and that's when the
nose stuffs up-so people think
milk is mucous forming."
Davis even gave the audience
her special formula all purpose
cure-consisting primarily of vita-
min C, powdered milk and yeast.
Although she spent much of her
speech citing statistics and studies,
the audience paid avid attention
and even took notes.
They were more than delighted
to fill in on Davis' occasional
lapses of memory.
The nutritionist-author mentioned
that she has a new book out, and
that others of her books are in
paperback. She also recommended
several other books,. and plugged
a California pharmaceutical com-
pany.

From Wire Service Reports
PARIS - President Nixon's
foreign policy adviser, Henry Kis-
singer, met yesterday with North
Vietnamese negotiators, t h e n
headed for Saigon to consult with
South Vietnamese President Ngu-
yen Van Thieu.
Announcement of the flight was
made in Washington by Nixon's
press secretary, Ronald Ziegler,
who said the trip was one of a
series of "regular consultations"
with Thieu.
Ziegler said the decision for
Kissinger to go on to Saigon was
made prior to this latest session.
He said that decision was made

by the President last week on Kis-
singer's return from a previous
round of Paris negotiations.
In another unexpected twist, Kis-
singer met with Xuan Thuy, head
of the North Vietnamese delega-
tion to the semi-public weekly
Paris peace talks, whom the pres-
idential advisor once spurned.'
Kissinger's rapid return, the
presence of aides who previously
have not accompanied him, and
the fact he was willing to talk to
Thuy, indicated to some political
observers a sense of urgency. The
U. S. elections are only three
weeks away.
