CONTENDERS MAKE 11TH HOUR PITCHES
Democratic races still tossups

DETROIT (UPI) - On the eve of the
primary, Michigan's candidate-jam-
med Democratic races for governor
and U.S. Senate loomed yesterday as
toss-ups.
The four candidates for governor and
six Senate contenders scurried around
the state making an 11th hour pitch for
the huge bloc of votes that wound up in
the "undecided" category of their own
pre-election polls.
BOTH RACES were considered ex-
tremely close.
The nomination for governor was ex-

pected to go to either state Sen. William
Fitzgerald of Detroit, self-described
frontrunner throughout the campaign,
or ultra-liberal East Lansing attorney
Zolton Ferency, who based his upset
hopes on a split in the party establish-
ment.
In the Senate race, multimillionaire
newspaper publisher Phil Power of Ann
Arbor claimed his campaign had
picked up "tremendous momentum" in
the final weeks that would carry him to
victory over former Detroit City Coun-
cil President Carl Levin. Levin

acknowledged it's "between the two of
us."
GOV. WILLIAM Milliken is running
unopposed in the Republican primary.
GOP Sen. RobertGriffin was expected
to handily dispose of his only primary
challenger, Oakland County Prosecutor
L. Brooks Patterson. Both incumbents
are seeking their third full term in of-
fice.
Voter turnout in today's primary was
projected at 1.4 million - with the
higher-interest Democratic races ex-
pected to draw 800,000.

Ferency and William Ralls, another
contender for governor, issued op-
timistic election-eve statements at

simultaneously held news conferences
in Lansing. Ralls said he is the only
candidate who could beat Milliken and
that Ferency, if nominated, would get

Miller's Ice Cream store is not the
first establishment to attempt to at-
tract chocolate, vanilla and
strawberry-weary customers by of-
fering lively-off-beat flavors.
Ad one could argue that Miller's
management uses more imagination
than its competitors. But employees
at the South University store agree
that their latest concoction - dill
pickle ice cream - isn't likely to
become standard fare.
IN FACT, the store has only one
container of the flavor in stock and
employees are sure they won't have
to worry about ordering any more.
Miller's employee Belva Sanchez

said she hasn't seen anyone buy the
"really bad" dill pickle ice cream
since it was introduced last week.
"People just wanta taste of it and,
when they do, that's it," said San-
chez. She usually has a glass of
water ready on hand for customers
who want to get rid of the pickle af-
ter-taste they experience after
swallowing a sample spoonful of the
ice cream.
SANCHEZ SAID Miller's sold - or
tried to sell - the dill pickle creation
last year and decided to continue the
tradition "as a gimmick." She said
her superiors probably "had
pregnant ladies in mind" when
deciding to turn pickles into ice
