fund-raising dinner.
The name of the person indict-
ed will not be releised until he
appears to pick up the indict-
ment, said state's attorney War-
ren Puckett. Ie said the indict-
ment will remain secret until at
least tomorrow.
THE STATE'S attorney said
there is a possibility that addi-
tional information will be pre-
sented to the grand jury next
week but he said it was almost
certain that there will be no fur-
ther indictments. '
State Republican Chairman
Alexander Lankier admitted in
June that $49,900 received as a
loan from the Committee to Re-
elect the President had been ca-
mouflaged as donations from 31
contributors who in fact had not
given to the May 1972 fund raiser.
The same grand jury in June
indicted Blagdon Wharton,. a
Baltimore banker who was treas-
urer of the fund raiser. He was
charged with four counts of vio-
lating Maryland's election law.
The law prohibits the listing of
campaign contributions under
false names.

Stores
AT THE OTHER end of the
spectrum, Sgt. Pepper's co-man-
ager Ernie Ajloumy says h i s
store's decision to support the
UFW was "common sense, ac-
tually, because we believe in it.
We believe in people making
enogh money to live on."
All six stares have agreed to
let boycott supporters check back
room coolers as well as produce
counters for non-union grapes and
lettuce on a regular basis.
Although the negotiating party
sent out by the committee open-
ed its arguments by presenting
managers with information about
the farm workers' problems, Sup-
er says the power of the picket
line was probably a factor in
manager's responses.
"I THINK ALL of them h a v e
some knowledge as to what hap-
pened to that Huron A&P," Sup-
er explains. Picket lines at the
campus A&P store have reduced
business during picketing hours
to a trickle.
The decision to enlarge boy-
cott efforts to include negotia-
tion with independent grocers
was caused mostly by "the ur-
gency of the situation," S u p e r
says. The switch in policy orig-
inated in the Detroit Boycott Of-
fice.

THE SUMMER-DAILY Wednesday, August 22, 1973
to support UF ban

areas have nearly completed
their harvests, so the union's
strike effort in the Fresno-De-
lano area "must be won," Super
explains. "We really have to hurt
them now."
IN DETROIT more than 40 in-
dependent grocers have agreed
to buy U"W grapes and lettuce.
A handful refused at first and
then gave in after no more than
an afternoon's picketing.
"Our battle with White's was
the longest in the state," Super
says.
The local effort to convert inde-

pendent stores has been put off
this week for lack of personnel.
However, Super says the commit-
tee expects to approach Strick-
land's and the S. University Food
Mart next week.
ACTION ON larger independent
stores, like Food and Drug on
Stadium, Buster's on Platt Rd.,
and Farmer Grant's on Jack-
son Rd. will be deferred until
stores in the campus area have
been "cleaned up," Super sat-s.
Picketing at the Huron, Stad-
ium, Maple Village and Ply-
mouth A&P stores will also con-

tinue, Super says. Picketing has
been limited to three days a week
this summer, but may expand to
six days a week in the near fu-
ture, he cdaims.
Picketing of A&P stores repre-
sents the UFW effort to convince
the chain to buy union grapes
and lettuce. The national A&P
boycott was organized this win-
ter to strengthen the produce
boycott. Picketers ask prospec-
tive customers not to buy any-
thing at A&P, as well as to boy-
cott non-union grapes and let-
tuce at all stores.

Murray assumes top city post

(Continued from Page 3)
the reins of Ann Arbor - a city
touted as the "dope capital of the
midwest."
Murray's qualifications, hou'-
ever, are impeccable. lie served
as city manager of Inkster,
Mich., for over two years before
coming here. He received an un-
dergraduate degree from Lincoln
University and a masters in ur-
ban studies from the University
of Pennsylvania.
Moreover, the Democrats and
Republicans have given Murray
their wholehearted support. Even
the Human Rights Party opposi-
tion to his selection seemed based
not on the man but on the system

itself.
MAYOR JAMES Stephenson,
who put in a spectre-like appear-
ance yesterday, has praised Mur-
ray as a man with "a direct, pos-
itive approach to people and man-
agement."
All three parties conceded Mur-
ray was the best of over 75 can-
didates for the top city job here,
but that's about the only thing
they have agreed upon all yeir.
And unless Murray can also
walk on water, he won't be able
to change the situation.
IN AN INTERVIEW last month,
Murray pointed to crime as one
of the city's biggest problems and

recognized "there is no sitple
solution." Murray added he
would like to see closer coopera-
tion between the University and
the city in facing municipal prob-
lems.
Still Murrav said the f i r s +
hurdle to clear is getting to know
his staff. "In Inkster I krew
the city employes by name," he
commented. "But in Ann Ar
bor that will be difficult."
An accurate observation.
THE BUREAUCRACY being
what it is, the next time that
janitor gets to shake the city
administrator's hand will prooah-
ly be when Murray's successor
arrives.

The UFW is presently engaged
in a crucial struggle to re-secure
grape harvesting contracts it won
in 1971. Two of the major grape
