HRP candidate Ferency
calls for full amnesty

LANSING (UPI) -- Human
Rights P a r t y Gubernatorial
Candidate Zolton Ferency yes-
terdav asked Gov. William Mil-
liken to start legal action giving
Michigan war r e s i s t e r s full
amnesty and state veterans
benefits.
"The expatriates and less-
than-honorably discharged vet-
erans deserve to receive uncon-
ditional and universal amnesty,
but it now appears that the de-
parture of former President
Nixon will base no meaningful
impact on their present status,'"
Ferencv said in a letter ton Mil-
liken. "President Ford's pro-
posal made recent! to the Vet-
erans of Foreign Wars solves
nothing and merely suggest.s a

form of alternative punish-
ment."
FERENCY said Milliken, by
exercising the political power of
his office, can take immediate
steps to "ease the hardships of
war resisters and their fami-
lies."
He asked Milliken to extend
the benefits derived from a fa-
vorable vote this November on
the $600 Vietnam veterans bon-
us proposition to resisters.
'Surely it would be uncon-
scionable to deny to Michigan
war resisters financial b.eefits
from public funds simply be-
cause they obeyed laws superior
to U.S. military laws and rrga-
lations," Ferency said.

ANOTHER big issue for the
teachers is a reduction of the
student - teacher ratio in the
elementary classroom. Technic-
ally this means a reduction in
maximum class size from 31 to
27.
"We don't see that as an is-
sue," declared Crane. "We just
don't have the money to reduce
class size."
An important area for the
school board is supplementary
pay. It has proposed cutting the
pay that teachers collect for ex-
tracurricular activities.
"We had a survey on sup-
plementary pay last year,"
Crane reported. Ann Arbor
was ahead (in pay) in almost
every category. The teachers
say that Ann Arbor expects
more in services, but that's not
true."
Although both sides have not
expressed much optimism, no
one has given up hope of avert-
ing a strike. Most have taken
a pragmatic stance.
Johnson expressed his feel-
ings this way: "If they (AAEA)
are aiming at the buying power
they had two years ago, and
settling for nothing less, they
will strike"

SEPARATE ADMISSION Taylor has alleged that :h e
clerk made several other errors
----in processing the election for
delegates.
Countering those allegations,
Harrison claimed he had vio-
U n io n lated no laws in overseeing the
balloting or in taking action on
the voting results. Harrison
added that he might appear be-
fore the Board of Commission-
ers committee looking into the
charges.
TAYLOR SAID yesterday she
will also send letters to t h e
state election commission and
FUR iTY the attorney general's office
asking that they investigate
Credit Union Harrison's activities.
tU addition to the "error"
which personally affects her,
II Taylor claimed that Harrison
had not followed proper proced-
ures in at least two other in-
stances.
When one precinct race end-
ed in a tie, Harrison determined
a winner by secret drawing -
as is required under law -
but failed to have +he candi-
dates present which is also a
legal requirement, according to
Taylor.
She also charged that flarri-
son incorrectly certified a can-
didate as a precinct delegate
from the city's Fifth Ward when
he actually had not received ike
greatest number 41 votes,
