most pressing need," he said.
Another priority for Greene is im-
proved housing. Greene said he favors
construction of more moderate-income
housing to increase competition in or-
der to lower rents. He claims the
Republicans prefer to build parking
structures to promote business down-
town, rather than face housing
problems.
"HOUSING IS indeed more crucial at
this time than parking structures,"
Greene said. He said the allocation of
"millions of dollars" for parking down-
town is a simplistic solution and is not
likely to substantially help business
downtown.
Although he is sure to retain his
Council seat, Greene has still been
vigorously campaigning, primarily to
encourage voters to support Wheeler.
Along with campaign worker Jeff Frye,
he trudged through snow and balmy

weather Saturday, campaigning door-
to-door in the Brookside apartment
area.
Most residents appeared pleased to
see the soft-spoken native Virginian,
though few debated any issues with
him.
WHEN ONE VOTER voiced his sup-
port for the Human Rights Party (now
disbanded), Greene replied. "I'm a
good liberal Democrat." The. resident
then promised Greene his support.
Another citizen requested Greene
work on reducing municipal golf course
fees for senior citizens. After a lengthy
discussion, Greene promised to in-
troduce a resolution to Council.
Greene, 41, supports the ballot
question outlawing illegal lease
clauses, but said the proposal for a new
tenants' rights booklet is not necessary.
He said he prefers revision of the
current book provided by the city.

this election.
"Our position on those two parties is
that there's little difference between
them," Richard said. "The general
purpose of a socialist on a capitalist
body such as the Council is to stress the
needs of the people over private proper-
ty owners. We are standing outside the
capitalist system."
But if there is indeed no differences
between incumbent Republican Wen-
dell Allen and his Democratic
challenger Susan Greenberg, then the
two have excelled at concealing their
similarities.
ALLEN SAID he supports self-help
groups, such as the Public Housing
Tenants Organization and the Black
.Economic Development League.
"If you want to help people out of
poverty and out of ignorance, you give
them a job and if they fall on their
asses, tough shit," he remarked.
Allen's philosophy of self-help exten-
ds to his plans for the University
housing problen, where he believes
private enterprise is the answer, not the
city or the University.

"I THINK the University should stay
out of the housing," he said. "As for the
city, Ann Arbor is the biggest slum lord
there is."
Greenburg, on the other hand, admits
she has few plans for her possible stay
on Council, but would like the city to in-
crease city services and alleviate the
housing squeeze.
"The University could build struc-
tures to house students now (Which
could) later be converted for some
other use," she said.
ONE SPECIFIC area of agreement
between Greenberg and Richard is on
the role of a city council in discussing
the larger issues of society. On that
Score, they both agree to disagree with
Wendell Allen.
Allen insists Courtcil "spends too
much time on issues. not related to the
city of Ann Arbor." He said he has at-
tended some City Council meetings
which have lasted as long as eight
hours, discussing issues from first
amendment freedoms to South Africa.
But to Greenberg, Council provides
"a leadership role for the people of Ann
Arbor. This is one forum where those
expressions can come forward," she
said.

"a shirking of responsibility."
"One cannot say, we live in the city of
Ann Arbor, let's cut ourselves off from
the rest of the world," he said. "Things
that happen 2,000 miles away affect
how we live here."
Allen, a self-professed maverick ("I
call the shots for the benefit of the
people") has chalked up a score of
political enemies in his two years on
Council.
He blames most of his unpopularity
on the fact that Democrats find him an
embarrassment. "They think if you're
black, you're supposed to be poor," he
said.
ALLEN ALSO insists that in his two
years on Council, he has represented
"all the people" of his ward, by making
the city bureaucracy more responsive
to their needs.
Greenberg, a Democratic party
regular during her 20 years in Ann Ar-
bor, argues that Allen has not represen-
ted the ward, and insists she can do a
better job.
"I will bring to City Council the view
that Ann Arbor is made up of people,
not bureaucrats or self-serving.
politicians," she tells her audiences.-
Greenberg said she plans to bring
government to the people, through
Council hearings in "neighborhood
schools, and regular office hours for
city hall. ,
GREENBERG disagrees with
Richard that there is no difference be-
tween her and the man she hopes to
oust.
"I see great differences," she said. "I
don't think Wendell Allen and I agree on
anything. He's a Republican and I'm a
Democrat' Wendell Allen votes 99 per

Green erg
cent with the Republican Party."
Greenberg said that Richard's unex-
pected write-in candidacy may have an
adverse affect on the race, "but not a
substantial one."
SHE SAID, however, there is an
"overlapping" between herself and
Richard, particularly in the area of
"people services."
But Richard insists the Democrats
"have done a goodsjob on paper," in the
area of human services."
Richard said that before his Socialist
Party, USA, can become a strong third-
party force, he must first convince
people. "socialism" is not a dirty word.
"We're trying to get people out of that
McCarthyism, red-score view of
socialism," he said. "The main issue is
human rights versus property rights."

"Egypt, Israel, Jordan and the Arabs of
Eretz Israel."
Eretz Israel is Jerusalem's official
term for Israel plus the West Bank and
Gaza. "The Arabs of Eretz Israel" is
accepted Israeli code for the one
million Palestinians under Israeli oc-
cupation.
The original Israeli proposal made no
-mention of the Palestinians, including
only a clause calling for "a just set-
tlement of the refugee problem."
Egypt has insisted on "self-
determination for the Palestinians,"
which could be taken to include the PLO
and in the Israeli view could lead to
creation of a radical Palestinian state
on its borders.
The new Israeli version is close to the
U.S.-proposed compromise formula
whereby "the Palestinians have the
right to participate in determining their
own future." Israel was believed near
to accepting the U.S. formula when
Begin went to Washington.
