Several hundred striking miners gathered outside Ironton, Ohio yesterday for a caravan that led them to a non-union coal
facility in southern Ohio. The miners broke windows and turned over the pictured pickup truck at the Superior River Coal
Company in Hanging Fork, Ohio.

Former University football star
David Fisher defeated Earl McIntire
by a margin of more than two to one
last night for the Republican
nomination in the Fourth Ward Council
According to unofficial results,
Fisher received 521 votes to Mclntire 's
239 in an election where under five per
cent of the Ward's 18,000 registered
voters turned out.
tFISHER WILL now face former
Democratic Councilman LeRoy Cap-
paert in the April 3 general election for
thet seat being vacated by retiring
I~moratJamie Kenworthy.
Fisher was unavailable for comment
last night. His campaign manager,
former Ann Arbor Mayor James
Stephenson, said, "I think they've
taken a vacation to Phoenix. I think
they've already left."
A woman who said she was babysit-
ting Fisher's children said that Fisher
was at Stephenson's home, however.
McINTIRE, although disappointed
about the loss of his first political cam-
paign, pledged his support to Fisher.
"We just have to look to the alternative
and that's LeRoy (Cappaert)," he told
a group of 25 supporters last night. "We
just can't let him get elected. I'm just
going to do whatever David asks me
McIntire added that he will now put
his personal energies toward Fifth
Ward Councilman Louis Belcher's
mayoral campaign. Belcher will be on
the ballot against incumbent Democrat
Albert Wheeler for the second time in a
Democrat Cappaert commented on
the open primary in which he received
50 votes although he ran unopposed. "I
respect an open primary ..-. an oppon-
ent doesn't make a lot of difference to
me, I just try to be as concise in stating
my position as I've always been."
CAPPAERT said he had expected the
low turnout in the student areas, but
added that the two Republicans hadn't
captured the student interest. "I'm
reluctant to use students, I think there
are so many different groups, I prefer
to think of the University com-
munity ... but turnout is very low in

ard primary
that sector. I don't think they (the other
candidates) have said anything to in-
terest the student sector."
Voter turnout was sparse all over the-
Fourth Ward yesterday. In both the
fourth and fifth precincts, populated
mainly by students, only three persons
cast ballots. Fisher garnered most of
his support from the more affluentR
precincts, including. the Lansdowne
area, while McIntire gained votes in
those precincts dotted with apartment
complexes and older homes4j


SUSAN ROYLE, McIntire's cam-
paign manager, said of the sparse voter
turnout, "People obviously don't care
who the candidate is - otherwise
they'd have voted. Of. 18,000 registered
voters in the Fourth Ward, only about
700 voted."
According to Royle, McIntire's main,
problem during his campaign was iden-
tity. "It would have helped if the
Ward's student voters hadturned out,"
she said.
The Fourth Ward race between
Fisher and Democrat Cappaert is now
expected t become one of the major
contests in this spring's election. The
ward, long considered the city's 'swing'
ward, may determine which political
party will hold the majority on Council
for the next year.
In Ypsilanti, Democratic Councilman
Eric Jackson lost his bid for a third
term to political newcomer Ronald
Frederick, 138 to 111. James Wagner
received 28 votes. Frederick will face
Republican Floyd Hiler in the April
general election.
Douglas Harris captured the Council
seat in the First Ward. No Republican
candidate has filed for the seat. Harris
defeated Mattie Dorsey, who was at-
tempting to regain the seat she lost last
year, by a wide margin of 233 to 118.
Jerome Strong was also defeated in hisj
second bid for the Democratic nomina-
tion, receiving 57 votes.

We would like to correct a misim-
pression conveyed by a Michigan Daily
article on Ypsilanti City Councilmen
Eric Jackson, Harold Baize and David
Nicholson. The story appeared in Sun-
day's paper.
Although all three originally won
seats on the City Council as members of
the Human Rights Party (HRP), they
are no longer HRP members.
In 1977, the Ypsilanti HRP chapter
dissolved. Its members reformed as the
Democratic Socialist Caucus within the
Ypsilanti Democratic Party.
The Human Rights Party lost its
state-wide ballot status in 1977 after its
top candidates failed to get enough
votes in the November, 1976 election.

Democrat Ferency
to run for governor

Zolton Ferency, the driving force be-
hind the now defunct Human Rights
Party (HRP), is running for governor
again, but this time as a Democrat.
"I want to carry a political message
to the people," Ferency said. "Given

the present political situation, I think
we have a good chance of winning."
FERENCY SAID his ,intentions are
simple - he wants to give the public
more control over energy and industry,
stimulate the state economy and create
more jobs.
"We're zeroing in on economic
growth and development for the state of
Michigan," Ferency said. "We're try-
ing to encourage private business to
stay or locate in Michigan."
