termined trouble - shooter,
Riegle the firebrand advocate
of broad national concerns.
This difference is best seen,
perhaps, in their plans for the
nation's economic recovery.
ESCH believes in an economy,
that relies on a partially regu-
lated, but strong, private sec-
tor; Congress and the Presi-
dent, he says, must find so-
ciety's "pressure points" and
move in with cautious financial
aid and training. He says his
record shows him to be a prag-
matic problem - solver of just
this sort.
He is most proud of the Com-
prehensive Employment Train-
ing Act. (CETA), a bill he or-
ganized and helped to write.
CETA provides federal funds
for training in 'skilled profes-
sions and other areas. Esch
cites it as the type of jobs leg-
islation which must be passed
to preclude the need for a "cen-
tral economic planning" pack-
age, such as the Democratic-
sponsored Humphrey - Hawkins
He has advocated a year-
round youth employment pro-
gram, saying such a plan should
be "the number one goal of the
country." He has also suggest-
ed combining the Dept. of La-
bor's manpower training office
with the Dept. of Health, Edu-
cation, and Welfare's education
office. He has called for the
institution of a tax credit to
employers who hire back the
RIEGLE firmly supports
Humphrey - Hawkins - type
laws, saying the nation should
"establish a living standard
with a kind of equity and even-
ness throughout the society.
"I think our major problem
is . . economic justice," he
said in a recent interview. "I
think conservation in all its
forms is going to have to be-

come much more of our oper-"
ating ethic. I think the pressure
of g r o w i n g population, of
shrinking resources, are going
to cause us to have to make
profound adjustments. We're
going to have to get more en-
joyment out of simple things.
Riegle is careful to point out
his commitment to a capitalist
economic system, but his atti-
tudes lean fairly far to the left
in traditional political terms.'
"I LIKE the freedom in the
elbow room that comes with the
contemporary free market sys-
tem," he said. "But as the pres-
sures bear in on us, we're go-
ing to have to really make sure
that we tailor that system so
that it's producing really effi-
cient results.
"But," he added, "I don't
want a situation where every-
body gets stuck in a sort of
straitjacket of central decision
Esch has built his campaign
largely on the past, on an en-
cyclopedic knowledge of his op-
ponent's record and his own,
and a comparison of the voting
histories and legislative action.
Behind by nearly twenty points
at the end of the summer, het
opened the campaign with a
stern call for scruntiny of
Riegle's "inactivity and incom-
IN AN interview, with the
Daily, Esch encapsuled his
charges against Riegle:
"You guys can write your edi-
torial and say Riegle's going to
save Michigan, but you ask
him specifically, in perform-
ance, what he has done in the
last ten years to accomplish
that. It's easy to talk about
'what I'm going to do,' but spe-
cifically, how has he voted,
what legislation has he written
that's on the books now?"
These sentiments especially
characterized Esch's early{
campaign. He told group after
group in September that Riegle

had never written a bill that
became law.
RIEGLE hardly had time to
respond that he had, in fact,
helped to write important leg-
islation such as the War Pow-
ers Act, before the media stir-
red the waters. In late Septem-
ber the Detroit News reported
that Riegle had signed the name
of his estranged wife to a $4,525
tax rebate check and kept the
rebate without her knowledge.
Riegle admitted it, said there
was nothing dishonest about it,
but faced questions from the
press on the matter for days
on end.
Esch made only subtle refer-
ences to the issue, saying he
didn't want to talk about "whe-
ther Riegle forged a check or
not. I want to talk about is-
When the News came out sev-
eral weeks later with allega-
tions that Riegle had had an af-
fair with an unpaid staff mem-
ber in 1969, while married to
his first wife, the Democrat
came out with both fists flying.
Admitting the affair, he said
the News was consciously aid-
ing Esrh, and that" he held
Esch "personally responsible"
for the new, low level of the

rangements worked out by Kis-

Rhodesian officials said Smith
would attend today's meeting
without commitment and intend-'
ed to stand firm for a two-year
transition period.
Smith, the spokesman for Rho-
desia's 278,000 whites, met pri-
vately with Richard prior to the
announcement of today's meet-
ing. When he emerged from the
90-minute talk, a reporter ask-

over of power to the 6.4 million

thought to that," Smith replied.

(Don Siegal, 1971) 7 ONLY
Don Siegal has crafted one of the most powerful films in recent
years with this story of a lonely cop madly pursuing a psychotic
sniper. The film's violence is brutal and its implications complex,
just as in real life. The gripping tension of DIRTY HARRY is
heightened by Lalo Schifrin's hot soundtrack, Andy Robinson's
frightening performance as the Scorpio Killer and Siegal's tight,
unrelenting style. "A stunningly well-made genre piece. Smooth
and trim, directed in the sleekest style."-Pauline Kael. "One

(Sam Peckinpah, 1968) 9 ONLY
A magnificent western, a film that grows in scope and reputation
with each passing year. One of the most controversial films of all
times, THE WILD BUNCH opened to much breast-beating about
violence in film. Other films had contained more violence, but it
had never been filmed like Peckinpah filmed it. His grotesquely
graphic. strangely alluring bullet-ballets overshadowed his poetic
story of a bunch of unchanged men in a changing land, running
out of time. A modern classic and a true apocalyptic vision,
cinemdtuically unsurpassed. We are showing the threater released
version, not the badly butchered television version. "I tried to
emphasize the sense of horror and\ agony that violence provides.
violence is not a game."-San Peckinpah. "A film of genuine
comppassion."--New York Times. "The most fascinating and ex-
plosive American move since BONNIE & CLYDE. Peckinpah is the
most talented American director of his generation."-ary Arnold,
Washington Post.
