Run-off slited for clerical pres. race

Youth gangs attack

(Continued from Page 3)
* Unity's Bob DaI e beat
CDU's Frances Douglas to gain
the Second Vice-President post,
Dale getting 432 votes to Doug-
las' 387, the largest marign of
victory in any election.
* In the Financial-Secretary
election, Sue Ellen Hansen of
CPU received 423 votes to best
Unity's Susan Susselman total
of 373.
Unofficialv, the CDU slate
won 9 of the 13 positions up for
election. Unity took the remain-
ing four offices consisting of
Second Vice-President, Guide,
Sargeant-at-Arms and one spot
on the five - man Bargaining
Committee.
Both CDU and Unity candi-
dates, asked to comment on the
elections, agreed that voter
turn-out was high.
"We had a very good voter
turn-out," said Unity presiden-
tial hopeful Debbie Moorehead,
"and I think it indicates a high
degree of membership interest."
CDU presidential candidate
Carolyn Weeks concurred say-
ing "there was a better than
25 per cent increase in voter
turn-out in t h e presidential
race," over the contested Janu-
ary elections.
Both candidates also agreed
that the turn-out for the run-off
would probably be lower, due
in part to voter apathy following
last week's election.

The necessity of a run-off pro-
voked varying reactions among
the candidates.
"I had hoped this election last
week would be the last one,"
said Moorehead somewhat re-
seignedly, "but apparently not."
"No, it (the run-off) did not
surprise me in the least," said
Weeks, "with their smear cam-
paign-t expected it in fact."
Unity's Second Vice-Presiden-
tial candidate Bob Dale also
commented on the run-off say-
ing, "I think with three candi-
dates on the ballot, it was to be
expected."
Dale also had some remarks
on the Chairperson of the Bar-
gaining Committee race.
Dale termed the possible elec-
tion of CDU's Marianne Jensen
over Unity's Jean Jones as
"most unfortunate."
"I wouldn't want to speak
against Ms. Jensen-I don't real-
ly know her well enough-but I
do know Ms. Jones well and I
know she is very dedicated to
the needs of the membership,"
said Dale.
The outcome of the run-off
would appear to partially hinge
on the disposition of independent
James Evans towards the re-
maining two candidates. Evans'
votes could provide either an-
didate with a slim margin of
victory, assuming his supporters
honored his stated preference.
Evans said he would support

Moorehead, but the large num-
ber of CDU candidates elected
would make effective leadership
difficult.
"I would say I support her,"
said Evans, "but I have my
reservations whether anybody
has enough diplomatic skill to
make for an effective union."
Asked whether he thought his
61 supporters would vote for
Moorehead, "I'm inclined to
think they will."
TRIBAL ART
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. SP)
- Father Dino Beretta, pastor
of Our Lady of Sorrows Church
here, collected some 150 sculp-
tures by the Makondes while
serving as a missionary in Tan-
zania.
The Makondes, a branch of
the Bantu tribe, live in a south-
ern sector of Tanzania, isolated
by the Livingston Mountains
and six-month rainy seasons
that cut off river travel.
This African people, who
have been sculpting for cen-
turies, seem to have the jump
on the "mind-expanding" drug
culture of the west, Father Ger-
etta says. "The men take drugs
- herbs - to. communicate
with the spirits. They carve the
sculptures after they come out
of the trance," he said.

CHICAGO (A - Youth gangs
roamed Chicago's South Side
late Sunday night and early
yesterday attacking motorists
stranded by torrential rains,
killing one woman and assault-
ing at least 15 persons, police
said.
A motorist stranded on a
dark, rain-soaked South Side
street refused to pay $10 de-
manded by four youths, who
then shot him and killed his
wife. Three of the couple's six
children watched the attack,
which police said occurred in
darkness Sunday night after
heavy rains detoured motorists
from the Dan Ryan. Express-
way to unfamiliar streets on
the South Side.
"THAT'S THE WAY IT is
down there," said Joseph Di-
Leonardi, city homicide com-
mander. He said the youths
were trying to "find a chance
to stick somebody up."
DiLeonardi said reports
were filed only in four of the
15 incidents involving 17 per-
sons. Three persons were hos-
pitalized, one in serious condi-
tion.
There were no arrests and

police said they could not esti-
mate the number of youths in-
volved in the series of attacks.
PARTS OF the South Side re-
ceived as much as six inches of
rain in three hours Sunday eve-
ning.
The slain woman was identi-
fied as Mrs. Phyllis Ann Ander-
son, 51, of Buffalo Grove, a
northwest suburb. Her husband,

magazine for the communica-
tions industry, required sur-
gery for his gunshot wunds
