Labor union
in presidentia

WASHINGTON (;P) - Both sides
in organized labor agree that
Their split over the presidential
election is a plus for President
Nixon, who has reaped the great-
est union support of any Repub-
lican presidential candidate.
It is the severest rupture in
labor history over a White House
election, with the AFL-CIO coun-
cil taking a neutral stand. In the
final days before the election,
both sides scoured the country
for votes for their candidate.
The McGovern labor pitch boil-
ed down to a widely used adver-
tisement blaming Nixon for un-
employment, rising prices and
wage controls, and saying, "If
you work for a living, how in
hell can you vote for, Nixon?"
Retorted Fitzsimmons in be-
half of Nixon: "The programs be-
ing proposed by the Democratic
candidate present such a radical
departure from sound domestic
and foreign policies that Team-
sters everywhere found the de-
cision clear cut early in t h e
campaign."

Would legalizing abortion
eliminate criminal abortions?
This is purely wishful thinking, and a completely false state-
ment. Consistent experience has been that when laws are
liberalized, the legal abortion rate skyrockets, the illegal
abortion rate does not drop, but frequently also rises. The
reason consistently given is the relative lack of privacy of the
official procedures. (Europe, Japan, Colorado, etc.)

Environmental Action

Speaking Before Political Science 300, Congressman Mart Esch's
Opponent Strongly Urged Ever yone to Read Ralph Nader's
Profile on Congressman Esch Before They Voted. We Concur
With That AdVice.:
On Ithe subject of Vietnam,
Ralph Nader says:
"The Vietnam war has been one of Esch's primary con-
cerns. He is against the war, and this is where he differs
from Nixon."
"Congressman Esch is in the forefront of Republican
doves, seeing not only the human waste in Southeast
Asia, but the economic debree and the need to rebuild
Indochina."
Commenting on environmental legislation, Mr. Nader singles out the
highly controversial H.R. 10420, which ended the killing of sea mam-
mals wthout a permit from the Secretary of Commerce and the Noise
Control Act, which gave the Environmental Protection Agency the
power to impose federal ,pollution standards. Congressman Esch voted
yes on both. Says Nader,
"For 1970, the League of Conservation Voters gave Esch
a 95% for the year and ranked him 105th in the Con-
gress for his stand on the ecology."
Says Ralph Nader of Congressman Esch,
"HE IS LITERALLY HIS OWN MAN."

PERRY BULLARD
RADICAL DEMOCRAT FOR STATE REP.
the People of Ann Arbor

Perry Bullard's constituency

The preservation of Michigan's
environment isn't just a matter
of lofty ideals for Mike Ren-
ner. He knows the problem
first-hand through his work on
the staff of congressman Mar-
vin Esch and with State Repre-
sentative Ray Smit.
'Ray Smit has fought many suc-
cessful battles for environment-
al protection," Renner believes,
"but the war is far from over.
More actionrissneeded to pro-
tect our ecology.
"Land use controls are neces-
sary to prevent the patchwork
spread of modern develop-
ment into vital farm and nat-
ural areas. The state needs a
systematic g r o w t h
plan to coordinate
needed development
w i t h environmental
protection for a vig-
orous, healthy society.
"The problem of non-
returnable bottles
must be metbhead-on.
But banning them is
not a complete solu-

lish curbside pickup service.
"I pledge to work shoulder to
shoulder with Ray Smit to pro-
tect Michigan's environment
and win the war against pollu-
tion."
This is how Mike Renner will
serve Ann Arbor's diverse pop-
ulation in the State House.
With hard work. Practical ac-
tion. Responsiveness to all the
people of the 53rd District.
This year, the choice is clear.
Choose Renner, the practical
alternative.
