Those behind the scenes
The Daily would like to thank those who helped us put out,
this election night edition. For the loan of a copying machine,
we'd like to thank Nick DePaolo of Pitney-Bowes, the folks that
invented the mailing machine. Dunkin' Donuts provided our
staff with seven dozen donuts, and the people in the office of
Dave Folsom, business manager for University relations and
development, loaned us their coffee-maker. It helped us stay

Wither goest my polling place?
Students weren't the only ones confused by changes made
in polling places over the summer. President Robben Fleming
reportedly arrived at the League at 9 a.m. to vote, but was told
he was at the wrong place. So Fleming had to truck on back to
the Union to vote - right across from his Administration Bldg.
The koll ege vote?
TAMPA - The Kiddie Kollege Kindergarten cast their ballots
yesterday and among the presidential picks were President Nixon,
George Washington and Tim Cloversettle, a five-year-old who
voted for himself. The total vote was Nixon 64, George Mc-
Govern, 17, Washington, 6, Cloversettle, 1, and two ministers
at the school, 8.
the dropped vote
LITTLE DIOMEDE ISLAND, Alaska - It took a special
airplane drop to get the ballots to remote Little Diomede
Island but the results will not be officially reported until after
the President is inaugurated. The island's 37 residents received
their ballots Oct. 22 and radioed unofficial reports of the voting
to Nome last night. However, official reports will not be in until
the Bering Sea freezes later this winter when a trip to the remote
island can be made.
Colorado cans Olympics
Deciding the fate of the 1976 Winter Olympic Games sched-

off all state funds. With 515 of 2,045 precincts reporting, 128,661
ballots had been cast to cut off funds and .108,062 had voted to

Except for Delhey's strong lead,
there were few surprises in the
contest, with voting blocs breaking
down along predictable lines.
Sallade, confident of backing
from Democratic party regulars,
tried to attract the student vote
by making victimless crime, espe-
cially prosecution of marijuana
cases, a major campaign issue.
Delhey sought support from the
more conservative elements of the
county, stressing his 12 years of
turns were mostly from city pre-
cincts. Deake has run extremely
strong in out-county districts in
past elections, while Burgoyne is
making her first bid for office.

represents totals from non-student
areas of Ann Arbor. No vote totals
were available from campus poll-

In the three-way race for county
clerk, incumbent Robert Harrison
held a large lead over Democrat
Duke Armstrong with reports from
67 precincts out of 166. The voting,
10,000 for Harrison, and 7,334 for
Armstrong gave the Democrat little
hope for victory. Stuart Norman,
running on the Independent party
ticket, polled only 235 votes.
Outcome of the County Drain
Commissioner contest is still in
doubt, with Republican Richard
Wanty leading Jerome Fulton by
8,666 to 8,442. Democrat Fulton is
