state. Howell ran a populist -cam-
paign that accused Dalton of being a
tool of big business.
The Howell campaign was seen by
some as a test of President Carter's
political clout in the only Southern
state to go for former President Ford
in 1976.
Carter campaigned vigorously for
his close friend and fellow Democrat,
both in person and in radio and
television commercials.
BUT VIRGINIA Democrats did
elect a lieutenant governor, Charles
"Chuck" Robb, son-in-law of the late
President Lyndon Johnson. He de-
feated A. Joe Canada.
Dalton won 75 per cent of the voters
who consider themselves to be inde-
pendents, the AP-NBC Virginia poll
showed. At the same time, the poll
showed that Howell lost some sup-
port from his own party's conserva-
tive wing.
Howell, 57, charged Dalton with
being a front man for banks and
utilities who he said care more about
profits than they do about the
problems of working Virginians.


DALTON emphasized the need for
jobs, development of coal resources,
and "back to basics" quality educa-
Koch, a heavy favorite in New
York, defeated Liberal Party nom-
inee Mario Cuomo for the third time
this year with Republican Roy
Goodman and Conservative Barry
Farber trailing far behind. Cuomo,
New York's secretary of state, had
lost in both the Democratic primary
and the runoff.
Carter campaigned for Byrne in
New Jersey as well, giving him a 50
per cent success ratio in the first
national elections since he was
elected President a year ago.
National Chairman Kenneth Curtis
said he was pleased with the fact that
the Democrats had held their own in
the two gubernatorial races, main-
taining 36 of the 50 statehouse seats.
Curtis said the good news coming
out of Virginia was the emergence of
Robb, "a bright new star in the
Democratic Party."
The natidn's largest city is still in a
shaken financial condition, and re-
lated issues figured to a great extent
in the campaign.
Koch advocated additional cuts in
municipal services, while Cuomo
favored increasing them and reduc-
ing taxes to attract business and
create new jobs.
EACH OF the two chief candidates
shared the public's concern with
crime. Koch favored restoring the
death penalty, while Cuomo did not.
Koch and Cuomo were the Demo-
cratic front-runners in the June
primary, but neither gained the 40
per cent plurality required for nom-
ination. In a runoff election Sept. 18,
Koch won with 55 per cent of the
786,000 Democratic votes. Cuomo had
already secured a spot on the
minority Liberal line and continued
his drive from there.

hiding illegalities by refusing to

Young was by far the better financed
of the two, spending over $30,000 on
television time alone. He.enjoyed the
support of industrialist Henry Ford,
President Carter, and Muhammad Ali,
the heavyweight boxing champion who
came to Detroit chanting "You gotta
run Browne outta town!"
FURTHERMORE, the mayor was
endorsed by both major Detroit
newspapers and by the influential
UAW, the most powerful union in the
automobile capitol.
Browne, on the other hand, was plagued
by a lack of both funds and endor-
sement. His only major endorsement
came from the powerful Detroit Police
Officer's Association (DPOA), but that
endorsement soon became a stigma
that Browne was forced to defend
throughtout his campaign.
At Young headquarters last night,
press secretary Robert Pisor said,
"The mayor felt that a large mandate
was important for Detroit. He wants to
be able to take a larger national role
and this big victory has given him that
kind of credibility."
Young told 500 supporters gathered in
the river-front ballroom of Cobo Hall
that "what has happened tonight in the
city of Detroit has made history, and
you have done it."
He referred to his record-setting vic-
tory, which he called "a final statement
of faith in the city of Detroit."
"I just got a call from the President
of the United States," Young said. "He
said 'Hello.' He said he believes the
people of Detroit made a wise choice. I
knew it all the time."
Young made a bow to the racial
divisions which emerged during the
campaign, saying: "I intend to be in the
next four years, as I have been in the
last four, the mayor of all the people.
We want unity. That unity can only be
achieved by an atmosphere of equal
opportunity and fair treatment of all

MEANWHILE, Browne waited out a
disappointing evening with wistful
hopes that things would turn around at
the last minute.
"Someone has declared a victory on
projected votes," he said. "You can't
do that. The people of Detroit live in
neighborhoods. The least you can do is
wait until the neighborhood vote is
counted. We have to wait a little longer
to get the actual vote count."
Despite cloudy skies and intermittent
rain, voter turnout was running only
slightly behind 1973 levels and well
ahead of the primary last summer.
The 59-year-old incumbent, whose
political roots go back to the fledgling
days of the labor and civil rights
movements, had hoped for a landslide
win over Browne, 51, whose campaign
funds dried up a week ago.
Such a victory, he said in an inter-
view yesterday, would give him the
kind of local and national clout that the
late Richard Daley enjoyed during his
long mayoral reign in Chicago.
BROWNE was hoping for an upset
similar to Cavanaugh's 1961 victory
over Mayor Louis Miriani. Miriani, like
Young, came out of that year's primary
with 55 per cent of the vote, and, also
like Young, enjoyed the support of the
downtown central business district.
Cavanaugh worked the neighborhoods
and put together a grass roots coalition
that surprised all political pundits when
he beat out Miriani for the mayor's
Browne's campaign, faced with
overwhelming odds, became almost
desperate in the-waning weeks of the
race. He called Young "a street fighter
with gutter values" and a swinging

TONIGHT! Wednesday, Nov. 9
(Abel Gance, 1927/1971) 7:30 ONLY-Aud A
The structural redemption and spiritual fulfillment of Abel Gance's visionary
film from a masterpiece, initially subject to mutilation and critical indiffer-
ence, to a vital document, distinguished for its exhilarating technical
achievement and sublime artistic conception, is one of the supremely
inspiring personal triumphs of cinematic history. His NAPOLEON is a
masterpiece in the original sense of the word; containing every conceivable
technique of cinema, it has served as a masterwork for the motion
picture in Europe ever since."-Kevin Brownlow, THE PARADE'S Gone by.

with it-at least to the State Supreme
Court," she said.
CORNELIA LANDES,another town-
ship. resident who, along with her
husband, Steve will take the witness
stand if the appeals fail, said she was
saddened by the court's ruling, but is
not sure what she will do now.
"We'll have to talk about it," she
said. "At first we had planned not to
testify because we felt that it was a
clear violation of our rights to a secret
ballot. Now that I've talked to some of
my friends who are lawyers and law
students, I'm not so sure any more.
There's probably more to it than just
this little issue."
"My objection is that I don't feel that
anyone who hasn't committed a
fraudulent act should be forced to tell
who he voted for," said her husband.
'"There's a wide difference between
registering and voting in good faith and
committing a fraudulent act, which the
court seems to be taking no cognizance
of. When I went in to vote I thought I
was a legally registered voter."
Another problem facing the
remaining 15 township residents is the
possibility of going to jail, whether or
not they decide to disclose their ballot.
"YOU'RE ASKED to testify about a
fraudulent act, for which you
theoretically could be prosecuted,"
said Steve Landes. "If you choose not to
answer, however, you could be held in
