McCollough, the polished state
senator from Dearborn, who leaves a
lingering sweet scent of his cologne in
each handshake-is clearly the more
conservative of the two.
"I think I bring to the race a solid
background and solid experience,"
McCollough said of his eight years of
Senate experience. "The best thing that
can happen to Bill Milliken and the
Republicans is their defeat."
ALTHOUGH BOTH favor the with-
drawal of investments from South
Africa and the development of solar
energy rather than nuclear power, they'
remain divided on the development of
the state's industry.
"We have three major industries in
the State of Michigan-industry,
tourism and agriculture," Ferency
said. He dislikes giving tax breaks to
large private industries, especially to
General Motors and the Ford Motor
Company to locate more plants in the
state. Both companies recently recor-
ded record profits.
"I don't see any great evil in the
word, 'corporation,"' McCollough
countered. "I think their programs
would have been beneficial to

railroad like the Ann Arbor Railroad
would be more beneficial in developing
tourism than other forms of mass tran-
"Our railroad should be running 90 to
120 miles an hour, not 30," Ferency
said, comparing it to trainlines in other
states. "I don't know why anyone would
want to spend a weekend in Ohio or In-
diana." Ferency added that since only
$3.8 milion in funds has been devoted to
the railway systems, both tourism and
public transit suffer.
McCollough said more than that sum
was spent on railroad development this

"I rather give the money directly to
the students and let them decide
(whether to go to public or private

Ferency said as long as there was a
need for public school aid, private
school funding should be ruled out. "I
don't think the public should be used to

said. "Anyone, can go to a public
