Five Vie
for seat
in state
House
By JENNIFER MILLER
Although five parties will be
represented in the November
race for 53rd District State
Representative, by all appear-
ances the contest will be large-
ly between incumbent Perry
Bullard (D-Ann Arbor), and Re-
publican challenger John Diet-
rich.
In addition .to these two con-
tenders, the Human Rights
Party(HRP), LibertarianParty,
and American Independent
Party will be represented by
Carol Burke-Fonte, -Gerald
Wolke, and Ronald Graham, re-
spectively.
None of the candidates face
struggles within their respec-
tive parties in the August 3
primary. This frees them to
oncentrate on the November
general election.
Bullard is focusing his cam-
paign on civil rights, environ-
mental protection, consumer
protection, and a more progres-
sive income tax structure. With
his experience in politics, he
may appear to be favored over
Dietrich, a candidate who ad-
mits to having "absolutely no
political experience."
While acknowledging that ex-
.perience will not be a major is-
sue, Bullard indicated that
Dietrich may be at a disad-
vantage, particularly in the
area of effectiveness in the
House of Representatives.
But Dietrich said his business
experience has given him an
awareness of the problems fac-
ing the average worker and the
business community in general,
and he does not appear worried
by his fledgling status in the
political world.
He views crime and the
economy as the two major is-
sues of his campaign, and cri-
ticizes Bullard in both areas.
He charges Bullard with wast-
ing taxpayers' money and being
overly concerned with civil
rights.
"Sometimes common sense
his to prevail over civil liber-
ties," Dietrich said.
Bullard calls Dietrich "in-
sensitive", and cites Republi-
can apathy as a major obstacle
to increased employment.
Burke-Fonte and Graham
could not be reached for com-
ment, but Libertarian Wolke
sees unjust and illegal govern-
ment actions as a major prob-
lem for the country.
"(The government) needs to
be elevated to the status of a
primary moral value," Wolke
said.
BUSSE WINS BY TWO
COLUMBUS, Ohio *-Results
were slow in coming to the U.S.
Trotting Association offices dur-
ing the Canadian mail strike
but when all 1975 races were
tallied Daryl Busse was de-
clared the winner of his first
national harness driving cham-
pionship. He won 360 races last
year, two more than Walter
Paisley.
Carmine Abbatiello, during
most of his driving in New York
at Roosevelt and Yonkers race-

ways, paced the money winners
with $2,275,093. He beat out Ben
Webster by more than $305,000.
Twelve other drivers of trotters
and pacers won more than
$1,000,000 in purses last year.
