With the adoption of a budget for the 1972-73 fiscal
year, the city has completed one phase of the fast-paced
and complex task of allocating tight funds to a range of
city programs.
Though City Council nembers expressed mixed reac

re-allocations may be necessary pending salary negotia-

Long, complex ballots caused
slow and incomplete returns yes-
.terday in the Nebraska and
West Virginia delegate races for
the Democratic convention.
Final results from Tuesday's
primary made Sen. Hubert Hum-
phrey (D-Minn.) a clear winner
over Alabama Gov. George Wal-
lace in West Virginia's prefer-
ence primary, but the delegate
contests were only partially tal-
lied. '
In Nebraska, final returns gave
Sen. George McGovern (D-S.D.)
a six percentage point victory
over Humphrey. However, par-
tial totals in the delegate races
Put 12 Humphrey delegates
ahead in the race for 22 conven-
tion seats. McGovern delegates
led in nine races.
Balhts from the areas where
McGovern ran strongest Tuesday
are being tallied today.
In West. Virginia, delegates
pledged to Humphrey weren't do-
ing nearly as well as the sena-
tor did in defeating Wallace in
a head-on clash there Tuesday.
Final figures gave Humphrey
a 67 per cent to "3 per cent vic-
tory over Wallace in the prefer-
ence primary. Put in sparse re-
turns there, three uncommitted
delegates were ahead, two sup-
porters of Humphrey, two of Mc-
Govern and one of Maine Sen.

To follow the successful Feb.
16 "Fast for Bangladesh," the
RefugeehRelief Fund Commit-
tee of the Ecumenical Campuis
Center will stage a massive
bucket drive here on Saturday.
The drive will be conducted
in the downtown area, Arbor-
land, Westgate and Maple Vil-
lage, and State St. and S. Uni-
versity to raise funds for "the
mnassive millions who are dis-
located and economically ruin-
ed" in the new nation.
The Church World Service and
the United Nations will channel
the money into Bangladesh. Both
have organized networks in Dac-
ca and work closely with t he
nation's government.
Two hundred and fifty vol-
unteers from Pioneer High, Hur-
on High, and Slauson J it n i o r
High Schools pledged to work for
the drive after viewing an NBC
documentary on Bangladesh.
The Refugee Relief Fund urg-
es private initiative to aid the
new nation as well as a more
positive commitmient from the
U.S. government. The U.S. Con-
gress has allocated $200 million
for Bangladesh for the 1972 fis-
cal year but has actually com-
itted less than $70 million.

Musli-e aides throw in the towel

Campaign workers fon Demo-
cratic presidential aspirant Sen.
Edmund Muskie (D-Maine )
have conceded the May 16 state
primary to Alabama Gov. George
"If Wallace doesn't win here
it will be a real setback to him,'
says Jack Casey, in charge of
Muskie's press and public rela-
tions. "He should beat Hum-
phrey by 10 to 15 per cent."
Muskie is no longer campaign-
ing for the Democratic nomina-
tion and his workers in Michi-
gan have virtually closed down
all their offices.
Muskie aides feel that Wallace
will ride to his first northern
victory on the busing issue,
which is a major concern in

communities around the state.
He cancelled a scheduled
fund-raiser at the Raleigh
House in Southfield. "If he had
shown up we might have been
able. to pay our bills," Casey
Over 2,000 precinct delegate
candidates who c o m m i t t e d
themselves to Muskie, including
many top level UAW and Demo-
cratic Party leaders, will now be
listed on the ballot as uncom-
mitted because of a ruling by
State Atty. Gen. Frank Kelley.
According to state law, a can-
didate may release delegates
pledged to him if the candidate
writes a letter to the state *cen-
tral committee of his party.
Solomon Bienenfeld, assistant
attorney general, said that a
letter was received from Muskie

on May 2 asking to release his
committed delegates. A telegram
was also received from Sen.
Henry Jackson (D-Wash.) last
Monday seeking release for the
50 to 60 delegate candidates that
were committed to him. Jackson
withdrew from the Democratic
primary race over a week ago.
According to BieneHifeld. if
there . isn't enough time to
change Muskie's and Jackson's
delegates to uncommitted on the
ballot, before the election, those
precinct delegates among them
that are elected will be cont
sidered uncotmmitted.
Precinct delegates are bound
under state law to vote for the
candidate they are committed to,
for the first two ballots at the
national convention in Miami.
