Koster declares for state rep
Predicting a citizen's revolt that will "sweep
the Republicans out of the State House in Novem-
ber," Ann Arbor attorney Donald Koster early to-
day announced his candidacy for the State House
of Representatives in the 53rd legislative district
on the Democratic ticket.
He is the only candidate to file for the seat
so far. The deadline is Monday. If other Demo-
crats file, a primary will be held.
Incumbent Republican Rep. Raymond Smit
has announced he will run for re-election.
Koster, 32, who has been in law practice in
Washtenaw County for four years, warned that
"our government must pay attention to young
people. They are citizens with rights and duties
which must be respected if youth is to. view the
state as responsive to their concerns and needs."
Denouncing the war policies of the Nixon ad-
ministration, Koster lashed out at the distortion
of social programs caused by the war economy
to adequately support aid for the poor, education
of the young, or training and research in the
life sciences. Our national and state assets are
wasted on defoliation, destruction and death,"
"State government must be prepared to deal
with massive unemployment among working peo-
ple as a result of the administrations' so-called
"anti-inflation" policies," Koster said.
"Where is this inflation control," he demanded,
"we don't see it in the grocery stores, doctor and
hospital bills, or the military budget. The gov-
ernor's insurance commissioner has allowed Blue
Shield rates to go up by 47 per cent in the last
six months. This is another example of how state
government has been responsible to special in-
terest groups and big business while ignoring
the needs of the people," Koster added.
"Governor Milliken and his supporters must
answer for the policies which willpUt one of

WASHINGTON (A" - Senate antiwar forces
won a major, probably, decisive victory yesterday
in their month-long drive to restrict future U.S.
operations in Cambodia.
By a vote of 52 to 47 they defeated a key ad-
ministration-backed amendment, sponsored by
Sen. Robert C. Byrd (D-W Va) and prepared
the way for probable adoption next week of the
Cooper-Church amendment to curb both U.S.
action and aid in Cambodia after July 1.
The action constituted a rebuff to President
Nixon. who last week endorsed the Byrd amend-
ment. Opponents contended Byrd's proposal would
have given advance approval to any future U.S.
assaults into Cambodia undertaken in the name
of protecting American forces, in Vietnam.
Both Byrd and Sen. John Sherman Cooper
(R-Ky) co-sponsor with Sen. Frank Church (D-
Idaho) of the Cooper-Church amendment, said
the vote means this amendment will be approved
by the Senate.
But the victory could prove more symbolic than
substantial since the amendment is likely to be
rejected by the House.
However, Senate insistence on it in the Senate-
House conference to follow could jeopardize the
military sales authorization bill, which is the
vehicle for the Cooper-Church amendment. Many
key senators oppose the bill without that pro-
viso, while the administration wants the bill
