The go's bookcase
What does a governor put on his bookshelf? If you're Gover-
nor William Milliken it's books on history, the State of Michi-
gan ,"The Sophisticated Poll Watchers Guide" by George Gal-
lup, "0 Congress" by Congressman Donald Riegle (R-Mich.)
and a biography on Huey Long. He also has three elephants scat-
tered around his office on the second floor of the capitol build-
ing. Milliken spread the elephant motif to a tie he wore during
a press conference with college editors from around the state
yesterday. Milliken urged passage of Proposition C to eliminate
the property tax as the base for school funding, but said he op-
posed Proposition D, which would lift the constitutional ban on
a graduated income tax. Milliken also expressed support for
Proposition B, the abortion reform referendum.
Finally finished
If you want to go to Chicago don't leave till Thursday. By
then the last 18 mile stretch of I-94 will be finally finished and
open to traffic. The completion will make the expressway a
straight non-stop, toll-free road saving motorists at least 25 min-
utes driving time, 10 miles, and $1.40 in road tolls. You can now
visit the fun city of Mayor Daley fast and for free.
Leary has a home (maybe)
LSD freak Timothy Leary still has a country to call his own-
for a while. The Swiss government was going to throw him out
yesterday but has kindly allowed him to stay for two more
months. During that time th Justice Ministry will rule on Leary's
appeal for permission to stay in Switzerland. The Swiss really
don't want him. The U.S. government however really does want
him. Leary still has a ten year jail term to finish.

Election muck revisited
+ Yesterday we reported that someone called The Daily and
cancelled an HRP ad for Steve Burghardt. Well, the politically
motivated person had much more nerve than that. Our ad staff
reports that a short .woman with glasses and short dark hair
came in to The Daily with a forged receipt for $130. This woman
asked that the HRP ad be cancelled and the money be refunded
-to her. HRP is charging criminal fraud and has the cops inves-

The weather picture
Stay in bed. It's going to be cloudy with a good chance
of drizzle or rain today. The high will only reach the mid
40's. During the night it will continue to rain and the tem-

Right wins

OTTAWA (Reuters) - Pro.-
gressive Conservative Party
leader Robert Stanfield last
night called for the resigna-
tion of Prime Minister Pierre
Trudeau to pave the way for
a Conservative government.

edge over Trudeau's Liberal Par-

Trudeau has so far given no in-
dication of his plans. He plans to
make a statement or hold a press
conference following a Cabinet
meeting today.
Stanfield told newsmen he was
prepared to form a government.
He said "Trudeau and his gov-
ernment have lost the confidence
of the people and he should re-
Stanfield's party won 109 seats,
the Liberals had 108, the New
Democrats 30, the Social Credit
Party 15 and Independents, includ-

Commons, two seats.,
Stanfield said the Conservative
program would involve tax cuts to
counter/ unemployment-one of the
major issues of the election cam-
paign - and to deal with rising
prices, particularly as they affect
old age pensioners.
The Conservative leader said he
had had no contact with Tru-
deau, or David Lewis, whose So-
cialist New Democratic Party now
holds the balance of power in the
House of Commons.
Asked what he thought of Tru-
deau and the Liberal leader's repu-
tation of a colorful personality, a
jocular Stanfield answered: "I've

needs an exciting leader of the
By precedent in Canada, Tru-
deau is not obligated to resign and
may attempt to form a govern-
ment with minority support.
But this has been the closest
election in Canadian history and it
is likely that whoever forms the
new government, new elections
will be held within a year.
The populous eastern Province
of Ontario proved to be the ful-
crum in Monday's election, with
the Conservatives gaining heavily
there at Liberal expense.
The Liberals picked up margin-
ally in the Conservative East coast
provinces, while the Conservatives
strengthened their hand in the ag-
ricultural Western provinces. The
Liberals maintained their tradition-
al strong position in the French-
Canadian Province of Quebec.

Deadline passes but
agreement not signed
By the AP and Reuters
SAIGON-U.S. B-52 bombers unloaded one of their heav-
iest attacks on North Vietnam yesterday as its deadline for
a peace agreement with Washington passed without any posi-
tive sign of a ceasefire.
Meanwhile, an angry President Nguyen Van Thieu today
denounced the draft peace agreement as a "sell out" and a
"surrender of South Vietnamese people to the Communists."
The B-52s flew 13 missions into North Vietnam despite an
American hold down of bombing above the 20th parallel
about 75 miles south of Hanoi.
This equalled the greatest number of B-52 raids against
North Vietnam reported last Aug. 13.

Closing tax loop holes, breaking

steep graduated income tax will
according to Harris, help to dis-
tribute more fairly the wealth in

During his talk, Harris claimed
ixon has erred in dealing with
Nguyen Van Thieu. Harris called
for Nixon to change tactics.
"We ought to sign what will ge
us out of there, whether Thieu
agrees or not. We've let him dic
tate terms of settlement too long,'
he said.
Harris added that, "the peace
talks show George McGovern is
the peace candidate. I think the
pressure of the campaign haw
caused Nixon to change his stan

Harris backed this contention by
citing the President's willingnesE
to accept a coalition governmen

we can agree now, why couldn'
we have agreed four years ago?"

The congressional race in the Second District
between Marvin Esch and Marvin Stempien has
been called by many observers one of the
closest in the country. The incumbent Esch is
clearly in trouble - a Republican running in a
predominantly Democratic district with a large
student population.
According to the Wall Street Journal, "Some of
the most liberal GOP incumbents also seem
threatened by the presumed pro-Democratic tilt
among students." Democrats rate Esch as "es-
pecially vulnerable."

vonia the new district also includes much of
Monroe County which is also heavily Democratic.
Despite the odds against his winning Esch
maintains, "I'll do well in all areas of the dis-
As a result of the uniform composition of the
district, the candidates cannot afford to differ
greatly on the issues. Each candidate is contin-
ually trying to outdo the other on given issues,
but the fact is there isn't much difference be-
tween them.
The candidates frequently argue as to which is
the more concerned about the ecology. Both can-
