RENNER, HARRIS:
Candidates face off

By CHRIS PARKS
Conservative Party state repre-
sentative candidate Alan Harris
last night ripped his GOP opponent
Mike Renner as a "wishy-washy"
proponent of a "liberal Republi-
canism" which, he said, "is the
greatest threat to the two party
system."
House race
looks close
(Continued from Page 1)
Not only do Stempien and Esch
express similar stands on ecology
but they agree too in the areas of
the war and Congressional and tax
reform.
The only areas that the two have
shown some disagreement over are
the abortion question and amnesty.
Stempien opposes abortion be-
cause he says it denies due pro-
cess, while Esch refuses to make
public his position. Meanwhile,
Stempien is not willing to grant
amnesty to deserters while Esch's
only condition for amnesty is that
all POWs be released first.
Stempien often uses the parti-
san image as a point where the
two Marvins part company. At a
debate in Livonia, Stempien said,
"This district would be better rep-
resented by a member of the ma-
jority party in Congress."
Esch however is not so quick to
publicize his party affiliation.
Little of his literature includes the
word "Republican" and he sel-
dom uses it during a debate or
speaking engagement.
Typical of a close race the cam-
paigning has been feverish. With
some 13 debates throughout the
entire district, the candidates have
maintained full itineraries during
the campaign.
At first hindered by an extended
Congressional session, Esch was
unable to meet many of his cam-
paign engagements buttnow spends
all his time traveling through the
district.
In addition to going to debates
Esch spends much time canvass-
ing door to door. Esch has can-
vassed hard in Livonia where he
is little known and where Stem-
pien is a popular figure having
represented that area in the state
legislature for the past six years.
Esch claims the responses he has
received while canvassing have
been favorable.
- Stempien too has campaigned
hard, frequently visiting both the
University and Eastern Michigan
to hold press conferences and meet
with students.
Despite their energetic attempts
both candidates are often greeted
by sparse turnouts at their de-
bates and speaking engagements.
As few as four people have at-
tended speeches by the candi-
dates.
Perhaps to offset this problem
Stempien often brings "big-name"
politicians with him when he goes
campaigning. Some of thehguests
who have accompanied Stempien
include Secretary of State Rich-
ard Austin and Pierre Salinger,
former press secretary to Presi-
dent John Kennedy.

The attack came during a debate
sponsored by the College Republi-
cans (CR). The other two candi-
dates - Human Rights Party (H-
RP) entry Steve Burghardt and
Democrat Perry Bullard - declin-
ed invitations to attend according
to CR chairman Brad Taylor.
The debate was an opportunity
for Harris and Renner, both mem-
bers and past chairmen of the
group, to present their divergent,
views - views which largely re-
flect the changes in CR's outlook)
over the last half decade.
Renner led the group five years
ago when the moderate philoso-
nhv of the Ri non Societv was in

Forsyth contends that the Union
has no right to bar women from
the organization, despite the fact
that the building and organization
are privately owned by the cor-
poration of the Board of Directors.
Forsyth says moreover that the
organization is too closely affili-
ated with the University to claim
the status of a private club.

SHOULD EVERY HUMAN LIFE BE RESPECTED? OR ARE SOME LIVES
