BAKER. A veteran of the 1976 Senate
contest which he lost to Representative
Marvin Esch, said Roche's withdrawal
will have no bearing on his own
decision.
"It would not have any affects on our
plans," Baker said. "We allowed for the
vote that he would get."
With Roche out of the running and
Baker still officially undecided, the
only other candidates vying for the
Republican nomination are Marquette
Congressman Philip Ruppe and Lt.
Governor James Dammon. Oakland
County Prosecutor L. Brooks Patterson
is also considered a likely candidate,
but appears to be waiting to see if
Governor Milliken will seek reelection.
ON THE DEMOCRATIC side, State
Senator John Otterbacher, Dudley Buf-
fa, former aid to the late Senator Philip
Hart, and newspaper editor and.

publisher Phillip Power are actively
campaigning. Ann Arborite Warren
Bracey is also primed for the
Democratic nomination, as is former
Detroit City Council President Carl
Levin.
Although at this early stage no can-
didate is given an advantage, Power is
independently wealthy and the bests
financed of all the contenders. Buffa,'
however, has the endorsement of Jane
Hart, the late senator's wife.
Otterbacher has the advantage of an
early lead, since, although not an of-
ficial candidate, he has been criss-
crossing the state for the last two years
running a non-campaign.
Of all the candidates, Levin probably
has the best name recognition, at least
in Southeastern Michigan, which in-
cludes the populous Wayne,' Oakland
and Macomb counties. Levin's brother
Sander helped boost the family name
by challenging Governor Milliken in
both of the last two gubernatorial elec-
tions.

profits made on South African invest-
ments are the spoils of apartheid-what
he calls the virtual slavery of blacks.
He said that at one time he questioned
the virtue of American corporate with-
drawal from South Africa. But after
looking into the issue and listening to
black South Africans he decided "that
was the only way to go."
To those who concerned abouthow
blacks will suffer without jobs, Suran-
sky reminded them that blacks are the
ones asking for divestment.
HE QUOTED Donald Woods, the
former newspaper editor who recently
escaped from South Africa while under
a banning restriction, who said "I do

not know one black South African who
does not invite divestiture."
In Semela's words Suransky said
"we know how to suffer-we have been
suffering for 300 years. We consciously
invite this suffering because it is the
way to victory."
Suransky said these multinational
corporations "are one of the biggest
dangers to democracy in our time.
HE CONCLUDED saying "let us (the
University) be the first Big Ten univer-
sity to pull out of apartheid."
Smith pointed out that if the Univer-
sity divests it will not be alone. "More
and more there are organizations that
have said we will not in any way con-
tribute money to the fascist, racist Vor-

ster regime," ne said.
ALEXANDER accused the ad-
ministration of, claiming false
justifications for the University's
holding. "The University has no right to,
use the argument that it has our best in-
terest at heart," he said.
Smith's statement concerned the role
of American corporations in South
Africa, especially Mobil Oil and Texaco

of which the University holds shares.
"They are the life-line of the racist
government of South Africa," he said.
He said the University must make
clear to these corporations and all
others operating in South Africa: "Not
one more penny for apartheid, not one
more dollar for the government of
South Africa."

things are going to be crazy if we
don't do something," McIntire said.
McIntire favors both of the tenants'
rights issues on the April ballot, but
said that he's not ready to go out
parading for them, either. He ques-
tioned the feasibility of having a
manual written in part by the land-
lords, in part by the tenant's union,
and in part by the city because
"You'd never know where the city
was coming from."
OF THE SECOND issue, the one
which would make the inclusion of
illegal lease provisions a crime, he
said: "If it's illegal to have illegal
things, then that's got to be the right
thing to do. How can you say no to
®something like that?"
I Like most city politicians, McIntire
* feels that the University does not pull
its weightin the city.
i "The University owns a bunch
around here and the city provides the
: services," he said. "(The Univer-
* sity) does subsidize the city for those
# services, but if all those buildings
e they own were owned by private

streets fixed."
AS FAR AS using funds from the
federal Community Development
Block Grand (CDBG) program, Mc-
Intire would like to see continued
social services, but more physical
improvements too.
"You've got to have health clinics
and day-care centers. Our kids are
important and we've got to bring
them up right," he said. "But on the
other hand, you've got to think of
everybody, and I think a percentage
of that money should go to fixing the
damn streets."
Cappaert, however, in a separate
interview, violently disagreed with
his potential oponent.
"THE CITY HAS to be awfully
careful to maintain those funds, to
supplement those funds, and not to
misuse them for physical purposes,"
he said. "Whether it's day-care or
clinics or whatever, we've got to
continue to use the money for that."
"Every one of the problems facing
this city is complicated as hell,"
Cappaert said. "But if you only give
complicated solutions, you never get
anywhere."
Cappaert was direct in his assess-
ment of priorities for the city's
budget. "I think there's not a lot of
flexibility in the budget," he said.
"People want city services. They
don't want to have any less garbage
pick-up service, for example."
"THEN YOU HAVE physical need
questions like landfills," Cappaert
said. He explained that nearly every-
one favored landfills, but no one
wanted them located near them.
Like McIntire, Cappaert voiced
concern about the state of the city's
streets. "Standards of roads in Ann
Arbor are important," he said.
The Democrat sees housing as
another major problem. "Are we
going to have room for moderate and
low income people as well as students
in this town?" he asked.
He, too, said he felt the University
was not carrying its full load. "I
think the University has a great obli-
gation to provide housing to its
students. If there were less compe-
tition, I think it would bring the
market down," he said.

The relationship between the volun-
teer workers and the customers is a
jovial one. In fact, one woman was will-
ing to arm wrestle with a rummage
salesman in order to get a better deal.
Workers are constantly teasing each
other and friendly haggling over prices
is common.
"I think the sale is fantastic," said
volunteer Toni Jarvis. "We're very
busy in spite of the weather."
Another worker, Pat Clishan agreed.
"The people down here are having a
great time," he remarked. "We'll kid
around with them and they'll kid right
back."
Included among the many sale items
are appliances, furniture, antiques,
jewelry, hardware, perfume, men'
and women's clothing and thousands o
books. Today the sale will run from 1
noon until 8:00 p.m. and Saturday from
9:00 a.m. uNtil 2:00 p.m. As voluntee
Jeanne Wild remarkedi, "Come o
down, the merchandise is beautiful."
