i Milbrath calls himself a "po-
litical skeptic" these days. Like'
many others, he made his exit
in 1975 "with the realization
that there wasn't anything dy-
namic going on."
TO MILBRATH, the fateful
election "was lost before it
EN'S ' started; there just wasn't any
support outside of the party
regulars. When you have to
start going to your phone lists
and calling up old standbys,
you begin to see you're not get-
nel ting anything new - that your
75 days are numbered."
1733 Milbrath has also been an or-
-0354 j ganizer in the Graduate Employ-
II - -

In the end, says Milbrath,
"HRP suffered from the same
kind of high - handed liberal-;
ism we were trying to get away
from in the first place - that
thing of 'we know what's bestI
for you whether you like it or
not."'

But not everyone in Ann Ar
bor has deserted the embat-
tled third party. And by no
means have all the people who
did leave jump happily into
the arms of the Democrats.

into the municipal transporta-

grams such as Local Motion.
And a handfulof stubborn
holdouts - ideologically "pure"
and cleansed of fair - weather
friends - have remained in
the party, which has been re-
named the Socialist Human
Rights Party (SHRP).
But if HRP is (as many be-
lieve) finished in Ann Arbor,
it is flourishing in other parts

Jackson says he still has a la

survive.
"You have to remember we'r

asserts. "We may have molde

better and better in Ypsilanti
and Lansing, and we're organiz=

bugs me sometimes that people
call HRP a thing of the past
just because of what happened
to a single chapter."
But the fact remains that
large number of old-time HRP
radicals have found a home ir
the less fossilized corners of
the Democratic Party, and are
hopeful about the future.

THE OFFICIAL reported that
considerable progress also had
been made in recent days on
setting up a constitutional con-
ference for South West Africa
(Namibia), which is heading to-
ward independence after 57
years of South African control.
The conference would bring to-

Africa, the South West Africa
People's Organization (SWAPO)
and "other legitimate parties,"
a U.S. official said, but the
exact formula for representa-
tion has not been worked out.
Kissinger will meet Sam Nu-
joma, the head of SWAPO, in
New York next week, the offi-
cial said. Nujoma's organization
has been recognized by the Unit-
ed Nations as the sole legitimate
spokesman for Namibia, and he
has insisted on dealing directly
with South Africa.
