Security boss
shows plan
for Portugal
LISBON, Portugal (A) - Security chief Otelo
Saraiva de Carvalho stepped into the middle of
Portugal's escalating military and political crisis
yesterday with his own plan for determining the
course of the floundering 15-month-old leftist
Summoning the nation's military commanders,
the flamboyant member of Portugal's three-gen-
eral ruling junta presented a program to nine
moderate military leaders trying to force Com-
munist-backed Premier Vasco Goncalves from
CARVALHO'S document criticized the Armed
Forces Movement (AFM) - proposed spearhead
of the revolution-and the Communist left for
failing to solve grassroots problems in the munic-
ipal and rural areas where it seized power after
the revolution.
It called for establishment of worker-soldier
alliances and for popular government based in
shops and neighborhoods and rising up to a na-
tional people's assembly, as outlined in a con-
troversi AFM proposal six weeks ago.
IT ALSO urged close relations with developing
nations and rejected any domination by the super-
It was not clear if Carvalho, who shares su-
preme authority in the junta with Premier Gon-
calves and President Francisco da Costa Gomes,
was making a bid for personal power or if he
was seeking a compromise to avoid the risk of
armed showdown within the military.
Carvalho's surprise move came as a spokes-
man for the premier denied reports that moder-
ates claiming the backing of a majority of the-
armed forces had given Costa Gomes four days
to persuade Goncalves to step aside or be pushed
THE SPOKESMAN acknowledged that 70 per
cent of the armed forces in northern Portugal
had lined up against Goncalves, but he said the
national average was nowhere near the figure of
85 per cent reported by moderate military
Northern Portugal is the center of much of the
opposition to Goncalves, including rallies called
by the Roman Catholic Church and the recent
sacking of many local Communist party head-

State HouSe passes proposal
to control campaign financing

A landmark campaign reform bill - limiting cam-
paign contributions and expenditures, prohibiting anony-
mous contributions, providing public funds for politcal
campagns and putting strict controls on lobbyists -
passed the state House late yesterday afternoon by a
59-43 vote. The bill- now goes to Governor William
Milliken for signing.
The unique measure, which will take effect April 1,
1976, will affect some 20,000 state public officials, in-
cluding the University's Board of Regents. Under the
bill, they will be required to disclose their contribu-
tions and expenditures before election, but will also
have to disclose their finances throughout their terms
of office, according to an assistant to Milliken.
THE BILL ran into stiff opposition from H o u se
Republicans last week because of several amendments

sponsored by Senate Democrats that would allow for
virtually unlimited contributions from labor organiza-
tions. The amendments were never deleted, and Repub-
licans to introduce procedural motions delaying the ef-
fective date from January 1, 1976, until April 1.
Because of that action, "Michigan will be without any
campaign law until next April," according to Craig
Ruff, an assittant to Milliken. "Until then," he says,
"there will be no law regulating money in a cam-
paign." This, in essence, means that those candidates
running in next year's primaries will be unaffected by
the bill because of the bureaucratic tangle involved in
making such a measure work.
But Milliken said that he was "gratified" at the pas-
sage of the bill and said that he will "in all probabil-
ity" sign the measure "despite a number of problems,
weaknesses and flaws" it contains.
