Dems Vic
Lansing U' -- Four Democrats are
dueling for the right to run against
Gov. William Milliken. but it really
looks like a two-man tussle.
Close observers see the race boiling +
down to a battle between former state
party chairmen Sander Levin and Zol-
ton Ferency.
They are much better known than
the others---George F. Montgomery of {
Detroit and Macomb County Prosecutor
George Parris. Levin has the money
and Ferency is familiar as the party's
1966 candidate against George Romney.
Milliken, meanwhile, faces an ef-
fortless primary contest with magazine
publisher James Turner.
Ferency failed four years ago in a
landslide loss, but claims to be the
frontrunner in this test. Levin, how-
ever, has the muscle to mount a-mighty
flurry just prior to the Aug. 4 primary.
Through the end of March, Levin
campaign officials said more than $30,-
000 had been spent on his behalf. This
compared with only $9,300 for Mont-
gomery and $6,900 for Ferency through
the end of June. No figures were avail-
able for Parris. Nor were through-June
expenses for Levin, who has rich re-
A dinner in Detroit recently raked in
$60,000, which Levin leaders said was
the biggest single haul ever for a state-
wide Democratic candidate.
Levin also has won the endorsement
of the state AFL-CIO, the United Auto
Workers Union and a number of edu-
cators and black leaders.
A 38-year-old attorney, Levin h o l d s
degrees from the University of Chicago,
Columbia University and the Harvard
Law School. He chaired the state party
in 1967-68 and has been in the Senate
for six years, serving as minority lead-
er in the 1969-70 session until he
decided to run for governor.
Levin's campaign cry has been a call
for leadership. He once said Milliken
was "more the caboose than the engine
of government."
Like Milliken, Levin has made a point
against pollution. He sponsored in the
Senate the far-reaching environmental
protection bill to extend the right of
lawsuit to protect natural resources.
Milliken also had pushed hard for its
passage and is urging the legislature to

for slot against

make other antipollution measures top
priority in August.
Ferency and Montgomery sought an
agreement to limit primary campaign
expenses to $50,000, but Levin would
have none of it.
Staying under that figure will pose
no problem for the others. Ferency
particularly has made a point of relying
on a low-budget, volunteer campaign
with student help.
Obviously, however, he now reaps
the benefit of rememberance from the
1966 campaign and the dollars - the
Democrats spent on him. It cannot set
too well with some party faithful.
Ferency resigned as state chairman
in 1967 after refusing to support Presi-
dent Lyndon Johnson. He had served in
the post since 1963.
The 48-year-old attorney said on a
recent campaign trip that his opposi-
tion has gone into a state of "panic."
and will mount one of the most "ex-
pensive, pressure-packed, last-minute
campaigns ever staged in Michigan'
The liberal Ferency, a maverick who
said early that he hoped to base his
campaign on a coalition of anti-war
voters, campus youth, suburban liber-
als, women voters, blacks and union
members, has trained his sights on na-
tional issues.
He argues that issues of national
importance are intertwined with state
concerns and a governor must be con-
cerned when Federal funds aire spent on
war, the space race, missiles and super-
sonic planes. He says a governor must
take a stand on how federal money is
In a recent campaign speech, he said
"the rebels are against double stand-
ards. They are fed up with being second
class citizens and they are demanding
that the country live up to its prom-
In another talk Ferency argued that
voters this year will have "a clear
choice between a Republican policy of
continuing our commitment of men,
money and material to an expanding
conflict in Indochina, and a new Demo-
cratic policy of immediate withdrawal
from Indochina with greater attention
and financial resources being directed
toward meeting critical domestic needs."
The 36-year-old Montgomery suffers

Montgomery says a high-budget cam-
paign is the wrong approach because
"We'll never be able to outspend the
other party."
"Zolton and I are in competition on
a votes-per-dollar basis," he adds. "Lev-
in has to be in a dollars-per-vote race."
Montgomery says that if he wins the
nomination, he will favor in the fall
a "modest budget that won't bleed the
party white."
But he concedes "I've got a lot of
hands to shake" in the few days re-
Personal contact and an emphasis on
Michigan problems also keynote the
campaign of Parris, 48-year-old pro-
secutor of Macomb County.
Parris attended the University and
Wayne- State law school and has held
his present job for 10 years. If he is
beaten in the governor's primary, he
will still have two years to go on his
current term as prosecutor.
Taxes on homeowners and crime in
the streets are two issues which get a
lot of attention from Parris.
When he announced his candidacy,
Parris said taxes have soared without
improvement in government.
He said the "school systems are over-
loaded and our homeowners are over-
taxed, and yet more burdens and taxes
are continually heaped upon them like
so many band-aids on a bad sore."
He also said crime must be stopped
because "no society can continue to
exist when each man lives in fear of
another, when every darkened doorway
is an ambushe, very street in our cities,
every dirt lane in our rural areas a
rendesvous for rape, murder and as-
A Parris campaign official says the
prosecutor is "the only one of the
candidates who really states the im-
portant things about Michigan."
"He's not interested in running off
to Washington to get publicity," the
aide added.
On the Republican side, Milliken en-
joys all the exposure of incumbency
and has not had to pay much attention
to the Turner challenge.
Indeed, Turner has spent far more
time attacking the attorney general
than the governor.




Candidate Ferency

from a recognition problem even though
he has been in the House for six years
and in the recent session served as
majority floor leader.
One difficulty is that there are two
George Montgomerys in the legislature
-George F. and his father. Both are
Democrats from Detroit and both serve
in the House. To the reader or listener.
the only way to separate them is to be
aware of George The Younger's middle
initial. It is sometimes overlooked.
George F., the candidate, is a tall
former schoolteacher who says he ex-
pects to win by getting 180,000 to 200,-
000 votes.
He predicts about 600,000 votes will
be cast in the race. "There hasn't been
the interest in this race that I thought
there would be," Montgomery says.
He is basing his campaign on personal
contact and on a triple-E slogan: En-
vironment. Education and Economy. He
gears his arguments to state concerns,
because "I'm not running for Congress
and I think we have to be definite about
what we're going to do for Michigan."

cros-examined sharply

WASHINGTON (A') - The government
yesterday indicted 13 leaders of the radi-
cal Weathermen faction of Students for
a Democratic Society on charges they
had plotted to set off bombs in four
major U.S. cities.
Most of the young men and women
named in an indictment returned by a
federal grand jury in Detroit are in hiding
or are out of the country, said Asst. Atty.
Gen. Will R. Wilson, head of the Justice
Department's criminal division. He could
not say when the fugitives might be ap-
The indictment said the committee
would direct clandestine . and under-
ground groups called "focals" that were
to carry out the actual bombings and
obtain material to build up an explosives
Atty., Gen. John N. Mitchell, who an-
nounced the indictments, said they are
the result of an investigation begun last
March 6, when three persons died in a
blast in a New York townhouse.
Two persons named as co-conspirators
but not defendants in yesterday's indict-
ment-Diana Oughten and Theodore
Gold-died in the New York explosion.
which police said occurred when dyna-
mite bombs being manufactured in -the
townhouse went off accidentally.
Wilson said only one bombing incident
alleged to have been planned by the 13
Weathermen actually took place. That
was in the Detroit Police Officers As-
sociation building last February, where a
bomb was planted but fizzled.
The indictment said the 13 began the
conspiracy last Dec. 27 in Flint, Mich.
At a second meeting in Flint two days
later. the indictment continued, Weather-
men leader Mark Rudd said the persons
attending the meeting "should partici-
pate in bombings of police stations and
banks throughout the country. ..."
Defendants in both indictments include
the 23-year-old Rudd. who led the 1967
uprising at Columbia University, a nd
Bernadine Dohrn, a former national sec-
retary of Students for a Democratic So-
ciety. Other defendants named both in
Chicago and Detroit are William Charles
Ayres, 25, another leader of the Columbia
uprising: Kathie Boudin, 27; and Linda
Sue Evans, 23.
Two others named in the Detroit in-
dictment were listed as co-conspirators
in the Chicago indictment. They are
Cathlyn Platt Wilkerson, 25, and Dianne
Maria Donghi, 21.
Miss Donghi was picked up yesterday
by FBI agents on Broadway in Manhat-
tan and taken to FBI headquarters. Miss
Evans and Miss Donghi are the only ones
to be arrested so far.


Sharp cross-examination of a prosecu-
tion star witness took place during yes-
terday's testimony in the murder trial of
John Norman Collins, the accused slayer
of Eastern Michigan University coed
Karen Sue Beineman.
During the morning session, the de-
fense also introduced as exhibits two
motorcycles which belong to the defen-
dant. Some of the witnesses who identi-
fied Collins in court on Wednesday as the
man who had tried to proposition them
further identified one of the motorcycles
as the machine that Collins allegedly rode
at that time.
In the afternoon the prosecution called
upon Mrs. Joan Goshe to take the stand.
Mrs. Goshe is apparently the only wit-
ness who will testify to having seen Miss
Beinemann with Collins.
Mrs. Goshe told the court that Miss
Beinemann had ordered a wiglet from her
shop the day before her disappearance.
When she came to collect it the next day
she told Mrs. Goshe that she was going
home with a man on a motorcycle. Mrs.
Goshe claims she observed the man, and
saw Miss Beinemann leave with her.
When asked if she could see that man
in court she pointed out Collins.

On cross examination Mrs. Goshe ad-
mitted that she had lied twice under
oath, once in the filing of a marriage
license and once at an earlier hearing of
the Collins case.
Under sharp questioning by assistant'
defense counsel Neil Fink she was forced
into contradicting a large number of her
earlier statements, particularly in regard
to the size of Collin's motorcycle and her
relationships with the press and the
She told the police that the motorcycle
she had seen Collins riding was, "like
a Honda 320 or 350." She attempted to
deny this in yesterday's cross examina-
tion. Collins in fact was riding a Triumph
Bonneville 650, a motorcycle which bears
little resemblance to a Honda 350.
She also denied having spoken to the
press. However. Fink asked Detroit Free
Press reporter William Schmidt to stand
up and asked Mrs. Goshe if she had seen
him before. Mrs. Goshe said she didn't
think so, but Schmidt has said privately
that he interviewed the witness last year.
Fink also mentioned the names of sev-
eral other reporters, all of whom Goshe
denied having heard of or spoken to.
The court is not sitting today, the trial
will resume on Monday.



Miss America contest loosens up admitted

Miss America 1971, unlike her
predecessors, will be allowed to
give her opinions on marijuana
smoking, the Vietnam war and
other controversial issues. But
sex remains taboo.
In revealing a major depar-
ture from pageant tradition,
Miss America officials em-
phasized Wednesday that -ques-
tions of a "distasteful personal
nature' such as, "Do you use the
pill?" would remain on the ta-
boo list during the contest here
in September.

AlbertMarks, chairman of
the pageant excecutive commit-
tee, said he had lifted the pro-
hibition against controversial
topics because "I took a good
look at the whole picture."
"We were always a f r a i d
youngsters with no prior back-
ground would put a foot in their
mouth, but today's youthful so-
ciety doesn't need over-protec-
tioi." Marks said, however, that
contestants would not be re-
quired to give their opinion,.

WASHINGTON (/M - President
Nixon's special adviser on campus un-
rest yesterday urged the chief execu-
tive to pay greater heed to views of
students and blacks and to employ
the moral force of his office to reduce
racial tensions.
Without going into details, Alexand-
er Heard, chancellor of Vanderbilt
University, issued through the White
House a summary of some of the rec-
ommendations he made to Nixon while
serving, May-8 until now, as presi-
dential adviser on campus disturbanc-
es and restiveness.
In an introductory statement to a
40-page document, Heard said he is
convinced Nixon does exhibit serious
concern over campus developments.
However, in an accompanying memo
he sent Nixon on June 19, Heard made
it clear that at that time he question-
ed the administration's approach to
the campus upheaval - including kill-
ings at Kent State University a n d
Jackson State College - that followed
Nixon's decision to intervene with U.S.
ground troops in Cambodia.

Toward the end of his final public
report, Heard said that detailed rec-
ommendations drafted by him and his
associates, notably President James E.
Cheek of Howard University, were in-
tended as private communications and
that their implementation might be
handicapped by making them public.
Sunmmarizing some of the recom-
mendations, however, Heard first list-
ed an urging "that the President in-
crease his exposure to campus repre-
sentatives, including students, faculty
and administrative officers, so that he
can better take into account their
views in formulating domestic and for-
eign policy."
Meanwhile in Washington the Pres-
ident's Commission on Campus Un-
rest was told yesterday that the great-
est problem confronting higher edu-
cation is not student violence b u t
rather "appeasement and capitula-.
tion" by school officials.
Sidney Hook, a philosophy profes-
sor at New York University, said the
frenzy to accomodate activists trans-
forms "an agenda of study into an

agenda of action, and converts the
university into a political organiza-
tion." And that, he said, "invites po-
litical reprisals from a public that does
not s h a r e in its political commit-
He said both the establishment and
students must recognize that the func-
tion of colleges and universities is the
quest for knowledge and that the
schools are not to blame for social and
political evils.
The solution of war, poverty a n d
-other issues, Hook said, lies in t h e
hands of the electorate and "not of a.
privileged elite."
But Dennis Hayes, former president
of the Stanford student body, s a i d
"the r e a 1 struggle is between those
who believe the American course is
sound, and those who believe that the
American dream has been betrayed."
He said, "There are those who seek
to divide us who, for reasons of po-
litical expediency or corporate profit,
attempt to set worker against student,
black against white.
