In the other two races interim
appointees to the bench, both
Republicans, favor, not surpris-
ingly, some form of gubernator-
ial participation in the selection
process. James Ryan and Law-:
rence Lindemer, were appoint-
ed by Gov. William Milliken in
1975 to fill vacancies left by
the death of Thomas M. Kava-
nagh and the resignation of
John Swainson.
BOTH RYAN and Lindemer
favor a version of a plan used
in Missouri, where all judgesF
are appointed by the governor,
and are subject to a retention
vote at regular intervals.
Lindemer suggests a "filter-
ing process to review the quali-.
fications of thoseebeing con-
sidered by lawyers and laymen.
The retention vote would give
trial court judges, media and
others a chance to whip up a
negative campaign in the event
the iudge is not doing a good
job."
Judge Charles Kaufman, the
Democratic nominee in the duel
with Ryan, disagrees with this
procedure. "You're taking too
much away from the people.
Appointments by the governor,
who is a partisan governor,re-
flect past service in the party,
except in extremely rare cir-
cumstances."
LIKEWISE, BOTH Zolton Fer-

ency, a Michigan State Univer-
sity professor, and Circuit Court
Judge Blair Moody Jr., running
against Lindemer, stress that
the choice of justices should re-
main "with the people."
"I don't agree with that (gu-
benatorial appointment) at all.
That takes it away from at
least an open party convention
right into the governor's chair
behind the closed doors of this
office," Moody declared.
But neither Ferency nor Moo-
dy know exactly what they wanttI
- they are only sure of what
they do not want.
"Dividing the state into seven
districts wouldn't be a bad
idea," Moody pondered, "but 1
wouldn't know where to divideI
the districts."

The radio station of the right-

Falangist Party leader Pierre

the truce was being observed

truce, and we informed them
where their fire is coming
