Bullard, Taylor face
off in Aug. primary

(Contiwed fromrnPaoa3
educate the people of Michigan
on the liberal issues rather than
just working with the issues that
are sitting in committee.
Taylor says Bullard has not
been concentrating his strength
on any one topic in an effort to
get his name associated with
almost every liberal cause. She
asserts that the difference be-
tween herself and Bullard is
that she has a specific list of
reform priorities which she al-
leges Bullard does not.
FOREMOST on Taylor's list
of priorities is the handling of
the welfare budget. Taylor ex-
plains that particular budget is
the largest allocation in the
state and that she as a nrofes-
sional social worker is properly
equipped to allocate the funds.
She claims that a House of
"lawyers, farmers, and real es-.
tate agents" can hardly handle
the funds properly.
Bollard and Taylor also dis-
agree about how they would go
abot handling certain issues,
particularly the question of the
reform of public utilities.
Both candidates say they feel
the nublic utilities are out of
the hands of the public and
have b e c o m e a big-business
stronghold.
BULLARD argues that he is
not out to "create another post
office" by leaving the decision-

making process out of the hands
of the public. He advocates
democratizing the public utili-
ties in an "effort to equalize
the power and income JiVr'bu-
tion in our society."
He has proposed a bill to
limit the salaries of utility em-
ployes and that the board of
directors be elected by the em-
ployes and consumers.
Taylor calls for an end to the
"privately owned 'public' util-
ity companies" w h i c h she
claims are run and administer-
ed like any big corporation.
She says they "have been only
concerned with making a profit
for their investors and have
been eating into their capital
to pay dividends."
Taylor has not paid her
phone tax since 1966 and she
faces trial on charges of filing
a fraudulent income tax state-
ment for 1973. She has allegedly
filed too many dependents as
a protest against what she con-
siders to be voluntary war tax.
She began her protest in 1970
after President Nixon an-
noinced, the invasion of Cam-
bodia. Taylor claims she is con-
fident she will not be convicted
since she says all of Indochina
is dependent on her for their
survival.
Bullard came under severe
criticism from fellow Democrats
for publicly smoking marijuana
at last year's Hash Bash.

Greeks,
(Continued from Page 1)
THE SIDES agreed to take
into account the existence of the
separate administrations when
they meet again on Aug. 8 to
consider amendments to the
constitution of the 14-year-old
republic.
In a declaration parallel to the
main document, Mavros, Gunes
and Callaghan said the ad-
herence of their governments to
the main paper "in no way
prejudiced t he ir respective
views on the interpretation or
application of the 1960 treaty of
guarantee or their rights and
obligations under that treaty."
The main document said the
areas of Cyprus controlled by
Turkish invasion forces and
Greek Cypriot troops should not
be extended after the time of
the signing of the document.
They called on all forces to end
hostile activities.
THE ACCORD says United
Nations peacekeeping t r o o p s
should man a buffer zone at the
edges of territory held by the
Turkish troops. Until the size
and character of the zones can
be determined, no one is to en-
ter the existing areas between
the two forces.
Greek and G r e e k Cypriot
forces are to evacuate all Turk-
ish enclaves. Turkish Cypriot
enclaves outside Turkish mili-
tary control will be protected
by U.N. forces and may main-
tain their own police and se-
curity forces.
The accord also calls for a
prisoner exchange.
After the signing ceremony,
Gunes was asked if Turkey's
minimum terms had been ful-
filled at the talks. He answered,
"Yes."
Mavros said the past days
had been difficult, but that the
accord opens the way "for an
eventual lasting solution" on
Cyprus. Greece and Turkey had
survived "a c u t e tension and
strain," he said, adding that
"we are condemned to be
friends by geography and vital

Hughes indicted n stock
fraud, conspiracy case

(Continued from Page 3)
THE GRAND jury named as
unindicted coconspirators Her-
man Greenspun, owner and edi-
tor of the Las Vegas Sun; and
G e o r g e Crockett, a Hughes
friend.
Despite the g r a n d jury
charges, federal officials face
problems of bringing the bil-
lionaire recluse to trial. He re-
portedly is living in the Ba-
hamas. That country's extradi-
tion agreements with the United
States may shield him from
being forced to return for trial.
The indictment alleged that
in August, 1968, Hughes told
Maheu and Davis to offer to
buy Air West for cash at a
figure yielding Air West stock-
holders about $22 per share.
The proposal would expire Dec.
31, 1968.
THREE DAYS before the
deadline, the indictment said,
about 52 per cent of the stock-
holders voted to accept the offer
but the airline's board of direc-
tors rejected it by a 13-11 vote.
During the three days before
the deadline, Hughes and the
~tl~~~ A m ~ v^ + ^ «" nl^-rf "- v

indictment charged that Hughes,
Davis and Maheu "would rep:'e-
tent to stockholders of Air West
and others that if the Hughes
Tool proposal was not accepted
by Air West, the price of the
common stock of Air Wast
would decline substantially."
All f o u r defendants were
charged on all four criminal
counts.
The stock manipulation charge
carries a maximum penalty of
two years in prison and a
$10,000 f i n e. The conspiracy
charge carries a maximum pen-
alty of five years in prison and
a $10,000 fine. Each of the two
wire fraud counts carries a
maximum of five years in pris-
on and a $1,000 fine.
RECORD SETTER
BUENOS AIRES UPI - La-
tin America's largest blast fur-
nace for steel production has
begun operation in Argentina,
according to a government an-
nouncement.
A government spokesman said
the furnace at San Nicolas, 120
miles northwest of Buenos
Aires, will produce 3,600 tons
daily of cast iron to be used in
making steel. He said this will
permit a 153 per cent increase
in Argentina's steel production.
