Sheriff Fred Postill, defeated in his bid for
re-election by Ann Arbor Police Captain Thomas
Minick, will stand trial June 6 for an alleged
assault on one of his deputies during a wedding
reception this summer in Chelsea. He is accused
of trying to choke Deputy Basil Baysinger with
a pair of handcuffs. If convicted, he could face
a four-year jail sentence and a $2,000 fine.
We thought we had. safe guarded ourselves
from a tie in our election pick contest. But alas,.
due to the lack of a winner in the Pierce-Pur-
sell race for the Second Congressional District
we have a tie. The two contestants involved
differ only in ^lTom they picked in that dead-
locked contest. So sit tight and as soon as we
know who our new congressman is, the winner
of our contest will get two free meals at the
It's already upon us. Jeff Raymond, an obscure
country-and-western songster, has recordeda sin-
gle entitled "Hillbilly in the White House" which
foretells the events we're going to have to look
forward to in the next four years. Among other
things, fried chicken will be mandatory Sunday
fare, Nashville will become the nation's capital,
and "Green Acres" will return to television. That
isn't all, either: country singer Dolly Parton, the
song claims, will be sent to Spain as ambassadress
(and her former partner Porter Waggoner will go
to Portugal). "Freaks," one might add, will be
made to cut their hair. Raymond has never had
a hit before, needless to say.

No one is willing to admit it, but somebody
in Toronto has been naming streets in honor of
Attila the Hun, tle famous Fifth Century barbar-
ian and hero of the working class. There they
are, right on the city map: Attila Street and Hun
Crescent. "I can see people objecting to Hitler
or Stalin because they are more recent," said
Richard Sasvari, Toronto city plannr. "But what
is wrong with Attila the Hun? Everyone was a
barbarian back then." Speak foreyourself.
A young Pole being deported from Dennark
yesterday hijacked a Polish airliner, using a pis-
tol fashioned from a piece of rye bread he took'
with him from prison. The young man, 20-year-
old Andrezej Jaroslaw Karoszinski, was given asy-
lum in Denmark- in 1974, but was jailed and de-
ported for theft. Security officials at Copenhagen
airport ignored the hunk of bread he carried on
boardl, but during the flight he chewed it into the
shape of a pistol and told the crew to take him
to Vienna. Just goes to show, you can get away
with anything as long as you got a little bread,
Revolt of the Smokers -
The nicotine backlash has begun. A taxi driver
in Madrid, Spain picked up four women who in-
sisted on smoking in his cab, despite his pro-
tests. When they refused to stop, he in turn re-
fused to shut the window or turn on the car's
heater. This did not cool the indignant women,
who took a pair of scissors and cut up the driv-
ers's suit, raincoat, and safety belt. They have
been detained by Spanish authorities; we suggest
they be made to smoke a dozen large cigars each.

PLAINS, Ga.- President-

last night there was strong
possibility he would pro-
pose a tax cut aimed at
aiding average wage earn-
ers if the U.S. economy did
not pick up by the time he
takes office in January.
Carter was speaking at a
nationally - televised press
conference near his home
in this southern Georgia
hamlet, his first news con-

would be aimed at the middle

A recount of the Washtenaw County vote yes-
terday tentatively moved Republican Carl Pursell
into a 347-vote lead over Democrat Edward
Pierce in their seesaw battle for the Second Dis-
trict Congressional seat.
After some 40 hours of nail-biting 'uncertainty,
Pierce. and Pursell sat down with Washtenaw
County Clerk Bob Harrison yesterday morning to
once again total up the county vote that had
thrown the contest into doubt. When they emerg-
ed, Pursell had forged a slim advantage by way
of a 300-plus vote error in Pierce's favor, dis-
covered in the previous count. The new tally left
Pursell with 95,393 votes to Pierce's 95,046.

Yael Rom was the first woman pilot
in the Israeli Air Force, and one of
the last. She became a pilot almost ac-
cidentally; but those kinds of accidents
don't happen anymore, she said, during -
a recent visit to the Hebrew House.
"I didn't know how to fly. I didn't r
even know what a plane loo'ked like,"
Rom said. Still, she began her flight
training in 1950, earning her wings in
1951. She served the Air Force, chiefly
as a non-combat pilot, until 1960.
CONTRARY TO POPULAR misconcep.
tion, Rom said that women do not share '
military duty equally with men in Israel.
"It is very sad that the girls don't
avail themselves of the opportunities r
that they have. If a woman wants o
make something of herself, nobody will
stop her," said Rom, now a university
professor in Israel.
The official reason the women are
intentionally given non-clerical or nurs-
ing jobs, she said, is that combat posi-
tions require a lot of training for co-
paratively little time spent in the ser-
cree s a,
figures were tossed about by the Pierce and
Pursell camps as well as the county clerk's of-
fice. By late Wednesday afternoon, thorough re-
checking and comparison of precinct counts with
the official county clerk figures revealed large
Even after yesterday's re-count, the cause of
the discrepancies remained unclear. In one in-
stance, absentee ballot votes from Augusta
Township were incorrectly phoned in as the tal-
lies of certain precincts. Also, it is now suspected
that Pierce and Pursell votes may lave been
transposed, some Pierce tallies being put in Pur-
sell totals and vice-versa. Finally, delays in ob-
taining and tabulating absentee ballots from sev-
eral Ann Arbor precincts contributed to the prob-
Whatever the reasons for the mix-up, each
county (Washtenaw, Wayne, Munroe) will now
conduct a canvas to officially certify the vote.
Some observers say the canvassing should be
done by next Monday or Tuesday.
A C C 0 R D I N G L Y, both candidates
yesterday received the new results with a grain
of salt, reserving any final judgements until the
outcome of the canvassing.
