to passing cars and talking to
people on the street.
Chisholm's speeches brought
cheers and standing ovations
from her audiences throughout
the day.
"The traditional job of run-
ning for president has been for
white men only," she told a
Welfare Conference audience
Saturday, "I think we need a
leader with soul."
She emphasized "I have a gut
commitment to address myself
to the inequities and grievances
of society. American needs to be
put back on the path of sanity
. we must respond first to
the people of the United States,
and everyone else will come
later."
Chisholm also had castigating
remarks for the media in a
press conference on Saturday.

"I was one of the first can-
didates who put out position
papers, and I sent them all over
the country," she said. "The
media never covered them.
There is an inherent discrimi-
nation against certain people in
the campaign. I don't control
the press. They've been trying
to demoralize and confuse the
people of this country who want
me to run for the presidency. I
think my candidacy will show
a lot of things, when this is all
over."
Chisholm h o p e s to win

faith in platforms once the ac-

replied, "It would , depend on
who would be on that ticket."
Chisholm's Michigan cam-
paign has relied on a hard-core
of dedicated workers who have
been canvassing the state to
generate votes and money. Chis-

Michigan campaign schedule
last week when the minimum
wage bill came up for a vote in
the House of Representatives.
Reiterating her determination
to stay in the presidential race,
Chisholm told a crowd of sup-
porters in Inkster, "You may
be hearing a lot of things by
other candidates in the next
few days about how I'm not
really - in the race. Listen to
them politely but don't believe
them, I'm in the race to stay,
so go out Tuesday and vote."
