Most of the interest centered
on the Democrats in this year's
primary as many Republican
races were uncontested.
One contest which received par-
ticular attention was the Sha-
piro-Stempien race.
Stempien, majority floor lead-
er of the state House. and a
man with powerful cennections
in local Democratic circles, had
been expected to win in a walk.
The narrowness of his final
margin came as a surprise to
It was little consolation, how-
ever, to Shapiro's dejected cam-
paignrworkers, whose optimism
had grown by leaps and ounds
in the last few weeks.
They had pinned their hopes
on a game plan which had Sha-
piro rolling up enough votes in
Ann Arbor and Washtenaw Coun-
ty to offset Stempien's sure vic-
tories in his hometown of Li-
vonia and in conservative Mon-
roe County.
If Shapiro could stay within
500 votes of Stempien in Monroe
and within a few thousand in
Livonia, they reasoned, an upset
would be within their grasp.
Only half the scenario worked
Shapiro piled up a huge mar-
gin in Washtenaw County-espe-
cially in student areas and among
absentee voters, who are largely
vacationing students.
The roof fell in, however, in
Wayne and Monroe Counties,
where Stempien's margin was
much larger than had been ex-
Shapiro was also hurt by the
candidacy of Bill Brown, 'who
aimed his campaign at essential-
ly the same left-liberal constitu-
ency as Shapiro.
Brown's 3,020 votes equalled al-
most twice Stempien's margin of
Due to the victory of the more
gonservative Stempien, it is ex-
pected that the Human Rights
Party will definitely enter the
congressional race when it holds
its convention later this month.
Had Shapiro won, that decision
would have been in question.

Newman also clarified a point
in the policy which states that
"optional maternity benefits are
available only at the start of
school in the fall," explaining
that this statement was for ad-
vertising purposes only.
Policies can be obtained at
any time during the school
year, he said.'
Glazer, Newmas' and the
women agreed that, though it
was too late to re-negotiate the
policy for this year to make
maternity benefits compulsive,
the matter would be seriously
investigated before next year's
policy was negotiated.
Glazer said he would try to
airange a mailing to students
to explain the parts of the
policy clarified at the meeting.

The students, which came out
for Shapiro in the city provided
the margin of victory for candi-
dates in other races including
Bullard and Postill.
Bullard had begun his heavily
student-oriented campaign even
before school was out in April.
Through a massive, well-financed
effort of wooing student votes
and convincing those leaving
town for the summer to vote
Although he came under heavy
attack from left-liberal politi-
cians in the closing weeks of the
campaign, his initial groundwork
paid off.
Bllard carried 14 of 16 stu-
dent-dominated precincts in the
city as well as picking up a large
majority of absentee ballots.
He fended off Forsyth's chal-

lenge to his liberal constituency
and stayed close enough to Eck-
stein in non-student areas to
carry the district.
Bullard will also likely face an
HRP challenger. Indications are-
that the party may choose Gret-
chen Wilson, unsuccessful candi-
date for the school board earlier
this year.
The two will then face incum-
bent Republican Ray Smit in the

Job security is another source
of complaint to the employes.
"There is nothing written down
for what constitutes a reason for
dismissal," said Baddeley. "And
although dismissal is rare, there
is no recourse for protest.
"Because the labor market is
so glutted with the student work
force, it's kind of like the De-
pression. They can hire people
at low rates and dismiss them."
The commission system is also
cause for grievance. Employes
