Flood survivors evacuated

77 deaths reported
in Colorado disaster
ILOVELAND, Colo. t - Taking advantage of a break in day-
long rain and fog, officials said helicopter crews completed evac-
uation yesterday night of survivors waiting to leave the flood-
ravaged canyon in the Rocky Mountains where at least 77 per-
sons died.
Larimer County Sheriff Robert Watson said some survivors
of Saturday's flash flood refused to leave.
WATSON SAID "to the best of my knowledge" all survivors
waiting for evacuation flights were air-lifted from the 30-mile-
long Big Thompson Canyon. Officials had estimated when rescue
flights resum ed two hours earlier, 300 to 400 persons were still
stranded.
"Some survivors refused to leave their mountain homes,"
Watson said. "They were in good shape and though they could do
more good where they were." Ie did not indicate how many had
refused to leave.
Watson, who earlier had de-
clined to estimate the number
of deaths, fearing public "pan-
ic and hysteria," speculated It may be weeks be-
last night that the toll might nfl-ay he nrb
reach 200. fore rther bodies are

Socialist Levin runs Quixotic race

By BARBARA ZAHS
Jules Levin admits that he is not a
typical presidential candidate.
'Very frankly, I couldn't care less about
taking over the office of the presidency,"
Levia says.
"ANYONE WHO would aspire ought to
have their heads examined. They're just
a bunch of glory-seeking egomaniacs who
want their names to go down in history as
serving as President of the United States,"
he insists.
Levin, 54, is the Socialist Labor Party's"
(SLP) candidate for president. He was in
Ann Arbor recently, trying to drum up
support for his campaign,

Because of severe restrictions imposed
io minority party candidates, Levin says
his name will appear on the ballot in only
"10 or 15" states. If the SLP is able to
garner three-tenths of one per cent of the
votes cast in today's primary, Levin's name
will be placed on the November ballot in
Michigan.
ALTHOUGH he knutws he is a dark horse
candidate, Levin refuses to call himself a
loser.
"This business about not winning in the
election depends on how you took at it,"
he says.
"When you look-at it not too searchingly,
it appears that the Socialist Labor Party

is a losing party. The Republicans and the
Democrats have been winning all of the
elections.
"But these parties are not solving any
problems. Conditions are getting prougres-
sively worse as days go on. These problems
are still with us. This is why they are
really the losers," he explains.
IEVIN, a resident of lladdonfield, New
Jerse1, has made tawii ntissiuccessful hids for
the United States Senate. Ie has als been
a candilate for New .tersey state usffices on
several occasions.
As a veteran campaigner, Levi is neither
surprised nor discouraged that few people
have taken his presidential candidacy
