Undersheriff Harold Owings, the Republican candidate for
sheriff, announced this week he would appoint the city's Deputy
Police Chief Harold Olsen as his undersheriff if he is elected.
Olsen refused to comment on the news, citing a departmental
policy barring political statements by police officers.
In a story yesterday concerning the secrecy of the SGC
election ballots, The Daily mistakenly reported that SGC Presi-
dent Bill Jacobs declined comment. Jacobs was actually unavail-
able for comment and says, although he feels it is improper to
give his views on the candidates, he is more than willing to
comment on the validity of the election process itself. Jacobs
denies charges in The Daily b Jay Hack that it would take a
computer 10 or 15 minutes to make a list of which students
voted for whom. Anyway, he claims, such a list would only
be compiled if a Credentials and Rules Committee ordered it in
a case alleging fraud. He maintains that the new system is the
method used in every election in the country involving paper

the McGovern-Shriver forces. The Festival will include an art
auction and sale of such items as "food, plants, crafts, old books,
buttons, records, posters, and blue jeans," and will be held from
3 to 7 pm at the Armory on E. Ann, behind City Hall . . . An-
other festival taking place today is the Market Town Associa-
tion's second annual Harvest Festival from noon to five at Farm-
ers' Market. Hot lunches, ethnic pastries,-baked goods, and a blue
grass music group will be featured. On a political note, the can-
didates for circuit judge will be together for their last tdebate
before the election tonight at g p.m. in the Union Ballroom.
The FBI, which never before had acknowledged that it main-
tained files on Congress members and candidates, now says
that it has been doing so for 22 years but stopped the practice
this week. "Such a program is not essential to FBI operations,"
said Acting Director Patrick Gray III as he ordered 'an end to
it. Gray said that, although the agency had maintained files of
biographical data on congressional members and candidates, it
had not conducted full-fledged investigations of them.
Dems, poll problems
Newsweek magazine says a special Gallup poll conducted for
the magazine shows Democratic presidential candidate George
McGovern trailing President Nixon in six big industrial states
by margins ranging from 16 per cent in California to 29 per cent
in Ohio. The magazine noted that the door-to-door surveys of
about 400 persons in each of the six states were done too early
to take into account "the explosive X factor in the equation: the
impact of the week's progress toward peace in Vjetnam." The
Oct. 20-22 survey gave Nixon a 17-point lead over McGovern
'in New York, 56 to 39; 19 points in Pennsylvania, 57 to 38; 25
points in Michigan, 59 to 34 and 24 points in Illinois, 60 to 36.

Daily News Analysis
Ignoring the inter-party fights
and charges that fill campus po-
litical campaigns, one fact re-
mains unstated yet seems clear:
What this week's Student Gov-
ernment Council (SGC) election
really needs is an issue or two.
The five parties represented in
this election dwell on issues run-
ning the gamut from the alleged
"U CellarMess," which no one
seems to fully understand or be-
lieve exists, to the establishment
of a SGC grocery co-op, on which
all the candidates agree.
. Accusations concerning the cor-
ruption and ineptitude of the op-
posing parties fill the gaps left
by the lack of pressing student
issues, further confusing a con-
stituency already lost in a vast
forest of party politics.
Most vehement in criticizing
the present SGC administration
are the Responsible Alternative
Party (RAP), candidates from
the traditionally most conserva-
tive campus party, 'and the can-
didates of the new Community
Coalition (CC), the most left-
wing of the parties.
Both cite alleged misuse of
funds and the "corruption" of
the SGC administration in terms
of maintaining "two lame-duck
non-students" on the Council.
The Integrity Party has blamed
RAP members for the shortcom-
ings of the present Council, using

Massive last-ditch try
By EUGENE ROBINSON
With scarcely over a week remaining before the presidential
election, candidate George McGovern's state forces are conducting a
massive canvassing drive to pick up last-minute support.
According to Owen Teicher, one of the Detroit-based organizers of
the statewide canvass, McGovern workers have polled nearly 300,000
homes in the state-about 100,000 of them in the Detroit area.
Teicher says he does not have specific figures on the voting
sentiment indicated by the McGovern canvass. But he does reveal that
the canvassers found up to 40 per cent of the voters interviewed in
