Hopeful Huber storms MadisonHeights

Former Congressman Robert
Huber of Troy took his cam-
paign for the U.S. Senate to a
group of Veterans of Foreign
Wars (VFW) in Madison Heights
last night and apparently came
away with a few converts in his
Huber, who ran for the Senate
in 1970 but was defeated in the
Republican primary by Lenore
Romney, wife of former Gov-
ernor George Romney, is in the
midst of a final burst of cam-
paigning on the stretch drive to
the August 3 primary. He faces
Ann Arbor Congressman Marvin
Esch, the favorite, former Mich-
igan Supreme Court Chief Jus-
tice Thomas Brennan and Uni-
versity Regent Deane Baker of
Ann Arbor.

THE ONLY Senate candidate
to appear before the group of
about 100, Huber presented the
man-in-a-hurry, no-nonsense im-
age he apparently believes will
appeal to voters in an election
year dominated by anti-politi-
cian politicians. When intro-
duced, he strode briskly forward
in just his shirtsleeves, leaped
to the rostrum and leaned in-
tently toward his audience as
he grabbed the microphone.
Pointing to his long career
in politics, which includes sev-
eral years as mayor of subur-
ban Troy, experience as an
Oakland county commissioner,
a State Senate term, and a two-
year term in the U.S. House of
Representatives, Hubar claimed
he had experience in what he
said were three crucial areas

for elected officials: business,
economics and government.
"The main problems we face
today are either economic or
governmental," he said, citing
his educational background in
economics and his thirty years
in business. He went on to call
for a cutback in government
influence on business, saying
such noninterference, rather
than governmental programs
such as the Democrat-sponsored
Humphrey-Hawkins bill, would
reduce unemployment.
"I THINK the private sector;
the free enterprise system,
which has given us the highest
standard of living in the world,
is where we ought to turn," he
said. "As long as we have an

concerning issue' of de-certifi-
cation," said Misorehead, "and
secondvl - we're holding lunch
hour meetings to sit down and
personally tstk with members to
talk about de-certification."
Asked what she saw as the
major issues in the de-certifica-
tion controversv, Moorehead re-
plied, "I feel the basic issue is
that people feel not enough was
gotten out of the first contract
negotiated by the union."
MIhOOREHEAD said other is-
sues in the campaign-such as
the ability of clericals to nego-
tiate contracts and grievances
on their own-were "a smoke-
screen" and "totally false."
"In the case of wages," con
teded M oor e h e ad, "if you
wanted an increase, you'd sit

down with your supervisor and
be told that this is what you're
in line for getting and this is
what you're going to get."
Moorehead added, "without a
legal, binding document like a
contract, there's no obligation
on the part of an employer to
provide needed benefits or wage
increases. And without the pro-
tection of grievance procedure
in the contract, these people
would be lost."
IRENE SMITH, a member of
the Committee for De-Certifica-
tion, admitted there were dan-
gers should the membership de-
cide to abolish their union.
"If we de-certify, we'll have
to take what the University
gives us," coaceded Smith,
"we're sticking our necks out"
However she quickly added,

But Martha Wheeler, superin-
tendent of the women's division,
said that she c o u l d find
"no connection whatsoever" be-
tween Miller's death and her
work at the state-run correc-
tional facility.
"She was a very energetic,
conscientious, dedicated, v e r y
competent d o c t o r," Wheeler
"AS FAR AS we know, she
was not headed here" Saturday
morning, Wheeler added.
Police confirmed a report
from an unnamed source that
said Miller had received a
phone call at her home at 5:30
a.m. on the morning she was
killed. However, police do not
know the nature of the call and
are still trying to trace its
Miller had been employed at
Dehoco since December 1. Be-
fore that she worked as a staff
physician at Jackson Prison for

four months. She attended the
University's Medical School for
one year before transferring to
the University of Wisconsin
where she graduated with hon-
ors in 1974.
MILLER WAS separated and
lived in Ann Arbor with one of
her two sisters.
Michigan State Police will
team up with the Southfield po-
lice department in their investi-
gation of the shooting. A major
portion of the inquiry is expect-
ed to be focused on Miller's
work with the inmates at De-
hoco and Jackson Prison.
An autopsy performed by Oak-
land County medical authorities
yesterday morning showed that
two gunshot wounds to the right
temple were the cause of Mil-
ler's death.
Brown said Southfield police
are stilt "checking out leads"
and are asking for public help i
finding the killer.

An absolutely stuining conversion of Shakespeare to fum.
Polanaki adapts the great tragedy with a amooth, inteligent
screenplay written in oataboration with Kenneth Tynan. A
traditional approach wtith the emphasis on reaism. Polanski
was at first criticiied for being too reaistic-too gory, too
much nudity. The blood brings home the Bard's violence in a
way the stage never has, and the nudity is never gratitous.

He said arithmetic used to
compute the cost-of-living has
not been up-dated since 1973,
leaving a "shortfall" which has
eaten into the general wage
increases members receive in
addition to cost-of-living boosts.
WOODCOCK said the union is
asking that the "shortfall" be
made up in any new agreement
and that the cost-of-living for-
mula be improved.

Postill also attacked the Ann
Arbor News and Treml for
launching "an immssediate and
intensified libelous attack on
us (Postie and Donley) as a
result of long standing political
opposition." He reiterated the
demand for a retraction of the

makes $6.85 an hour, including

Morris, noting that unions in
other industries are fighting for
cost-of-living provisions already
achieved in autos, proclaimed
"GM workers are now among
the highest paid in the country."
