The Democratic and Human Rights
Parties have both moved to initiate
separate City C h a r t e r amendments
which if passed would significantly
change the operation of local elections.
City Democrats hope to solve "the
problem of non-majority election of
mayor and council members" with "a
system of run-off elections."
The IIRP proposal limits itself to the
election of mayor and calls for "prefer-
ential voting" in an attempt to allow
candidates "to run on real issues, not
phony ones like splitting the vote"
THE DEMOCRATIC proposal if passed
would result in a system of rtin-off elec-
tions if no candidate receives a ma-
Jority in the regular city election.
The two candidates receiving the high-
est number of votes in any ward or the
mayoral race would be the only con-
tenders in the ran-off elections, accord-
ing r Hthe femocratic proposal.
Under the HRP proposal, each voter
would express a first and second choice
among the candidates. In the event no
candidate receives a clear majority of
first choice votes cast, the candidate
getting the fewest would be dropped
from consideration.
THEN THE VOTERS who expressed a
first preference for that candidate would

Golan hleights dragged on for half an
hour after the signing and then ended on
the 81st day of fighting since the break-
vdown of the cease-fire after the October
Israeli settlers climbed cautiously fron
their bomb shelters, and one said, "If we
had some wine, we could drink Lehaim,"
the traditional Jewish toast to life. A
Syriani a town not far frot the truce
line said, "Praise be to Allah. We pray
the cease-fire will hold and that we will
henceforth be able to live in peace with-
otthe dailyshsielling and destrticlion of
our hsotmes and fields over the pist three
months."

FIRST ELECTED to the State House
in 1972, Bullard has often been caught
in the public eye with non-legislative ac-
tivities such as his support of a Uni-
versity student group which showed the
pornographic movie Deep Throat on
campus.
Some Democrats, including Taylor,
claim this type of activity has hurt Bul-
lard's ability as a representative and
eroded his support among voters.
The 31-year-old attorney yesterday said
he has not been particularly hurt by
moves like lending his name to the
screening of the movie or publicly smok-
ing marijuana - which he has done on
at least one occasion.
"SOME OF the less coherent femin-
ists were outraged by the movie (Deep
Throat)," Bullard said. "But their posi-
tion was based on ignorance - D e e p
Throat actually is one of the least sexist
porno films around."
Bullard defended the showing of Deep
Throat on the civil libertarian grounds
that "anyone has the right to view what-
ever he or she desires."
He also said yesterday that he per-
ceives Taylor's support coming from a
small faction" within the Democratic

to support
By ANDREA LILLY
Members of the National Organization
of Women (NOW) yesterday picketed a
local bank to show their support for a
bill currently in the state legislature that
would help end allegedly discriminatory
lending practices. -
The NOW members, including County
Commissioner Kathleen Fotjik (D-Ann
Arbor), marched at the National Bank
and Trust Co. yesterdaybut have direct-
ed their efforts at all banks which belong
to the Michigan Bankers Association
(MBA).
THE MBA has strongly opposed a sec-
tion of the bill providing criminal penal-
ties of up to 91 days in jail and a $501)
fine for anyone convicted of discrimina-
tion in giving credit or loans on the
basis of race, religion, national origin,
marital status, sex and blindness.

equality in lending bill

NOW contends that without the crim-
inal penalty the bill if approved would be
weak and ineffective. Local chapter Pre-
sident Vivian Shaner accused state Sen-
ator Gilbert Bursley (R-Ann Arbor) of
"attempting to- compromise the credit
bill under pressure from the MEA."
Bursley is the vice-chairman of the
senate Committee on Corporations and
Economic Development which is present-
ly considering the proposed legislation.
NOW ALSO claims Bursley is "foot
dragging" in getting the bill out of com-
mittee, while paying lip service to the
measure.
Douglas Smith, a spokesman for
Bursley, said yesterday that the senator
is doing everything he can to see that
the bill is approved- in "good form."
Smith added that Bursley opposes the
criminal penalty now in the bill, but

would substitute a civil penalty. Bursley
feels that in its present form the bill
would be defeated by the senate, accord-
ing to Smith.
NOW HAS been a strong advocate of
the bill and the criminal penalty section
because the group believes women have
consistently been discriminated against
in attempts to get loans and credit from
most banks.
For instance, NOW charges that often
women must sign statements declaring
they will not become pregnant before se-
curing loans or other forms of credit
from banks.
Fotjik added that when a couple ap-
plies for a loan, the woman's income is
not as readily considered as collateral
as the man's earnings,
