"We can't take a bath every
two, threemintes"
Mendes said three years lnthe
carnival business are enough for
her. "I wanst to get a job as a
nurse's aide when I go back
home. Id's going to be my last
suminer."
ALTHOUGH HER 13 year old
daughter wants to take over the
business when she and her hus-
band quit, Mendez said she
doesn't want her other children.
in the carnival business.
Mendez said that being a car-
nival worker is a hard life and
she feels sorry for the people
who work with one.
"They like it 'cause they can't
get no other jobs," she said
with a deep sigh. "Some of them
probably never had a home to
start out with so this kind of life
is probably all right for them"

Belcher alleges illegal votes

(O*tlanued from Piage 1)
indicated that the revelation
could show voter fraud occurred
and the illegal votes determined
the results of the trial.
"IF WORST comes to worst
I suppose we could subpoena
them and ask their address and
determine if they registered to
vote" he said.
In addition, Henry said judi-
cial precedent has it that when
the number of substantiated il-
legal. votes surpass the elec-
tion's win margin the election is
usually voided.
In a legal maneuver Wheeler's
lawyer Robert Grace filed a mo-
tion with Monroe County Circuit
Judge James Kelley asking that
the City of Ann Arbor, the city
clerk and the County Board of
Canvassers be included as de-
fendants in the suit.
BELCHER'S ORIGINAL com-
plaint only names Wheeler as a

defendant,
Grace said the reason for the
motion was that the complaint
involved parties other than
Wheeler.
"I means that the suit cannot
be ajudicated without these par-
ties because relief is sought
aaginst them" Grace said.
A HEARING will he held on
July 18 in Monroe County Court
to determine whether Judge Kel-
ly will accept or reject Grace's
motion.
To complicate the case furth-
er, Henry has filed an amended
complaint against Wheeler. The
two versions are similar except
the amended provision has
dropped the request for a new
election to be held.
"We felt to ask the judge to
order a new election would be
inappropriate" to this type of
complaint Henry said.
THE COMPLAINT says Whee-

ler abtained the Mayor's pet il-
legally because of alleged errors
by the oCunty Board of Canvas-
sers in certifying the election
results.
The first count alleges five
machines malfunctioned on elec-
tion day and the Board of Can-
vassers failed to determine the
the extent of "inaccurate vote
recordation."

The second count clain at
least one ballot - a vote for
Belcher-'was discounted and at
least two absentee ballots
votes for Wheeler-were wrong-
fully counted.
'Ie third count alleges four
voters who had cast their bal-
lots for Wheeler were either im..
properly registered or not rel-
istered at all.

point the judge ordered the
