Pierce's hopes pierced
The final act of Ed Pierce's fight for a seat
in Congress closed Wednesday when a U.S. House
subcommittee voted to deny him a recount of the
i cl lection between himself and Re-
publican Carl Pursell. The margin of victory was
only 344 votes last November 2, but all of Pierce's
attempts to have the tallies re-examined - from
his request for a state recount t aUhallenge
the State Court of Appeals this . requetin the
U.S. House - have met with disappontment. Not
only that, it's the second time Pierce has been
squeezed out of a chance in Washington; he lost
the 1974 Democratic primary to John Reuther by
a razor-thin gap as well. The House subcommit-
tee report said that since no allegations of vote
fraud were made, they couldn't authorize a re-
count. For the Doc, it's- time for a break. Says
he, "I won't run again unless I think there is
a good chance to wi."

Nude on the loose
Art student April HolIes was finishing up some
work on the second floor of the Art School Wed-
nesday evening about dinnertime - when the
building is pretty well cleared out - when she
was interrupted by a young man carrying a
sketch pad who asked if she needed a male model
to pose .for her. She didn't, and she particularly
didn't need one attired as this one was - that
is, with no attire at all. She told him so, and
he casually went on his way down the hall. Not
particularly funny, perhaps, but one wonders where
he went from there.

-Louis Belcher, GOP
mayoral candidate

A group of citizens from the area sur-
rounding the Ann ArborrMunicipalrAirport
have accused Republican mayoral' candi-
date Louis Belcher of having made a "sec-
ret deal" with county GOP leaders which
could mean expansion of the airport - if
Belcher wins the April 4 city election.
The critics quote a March 3 letter from
Belcher to Republican County Commis-
sioner Bent Nielsen which allegedly shows
the Fifth Ward City Council member re-
versing his public stand against airport ex-
pansion by promising to "cooperate" with
county Republicans.
IN THE LETTER, Belcher stated: "We

cannot do anything about this until after
April 4th when hopefully we have the
Mayor's seat and a council majority, but
it is important to know. that we will coop-
erate with Bob Lilly (Pittsfield Township
Supervisor) on this issue '?

Perkins and Wilmarth are both members
of the city's Airport Advisory Committee.
"ON FEBRUARY 24, 1977, their state-
ment reads, "Mr. Belcher voted along with
all other Council members present to adopt
an Airport Plan to be submitted to the fed-
eral government which specifically rules
out building. an East-West runway. One
week later Mr. Belcher privately stated that
he could not alter his public position until
after the city election."
The statement reads further, "It is ap-
nalling- to discover that within a week of
that vote he has quietly sought to curry

In his first address at the
United Nations since becoming

defended his human rights poli-

by the Soviet Union, Argentina,
Brazil and other states that

internal affairs.
"ALL THE signatories of the
U. N. Charter have pledged
themselves to observe and re-
spect basic human rights," Car-
ter told 141 delegations and 10

But Carter said the United

political questions.
