Poiticos call for closed

LANSING (UPI)-With both
sides fearing the impact of
crossover voting in next Tues-
day's election, Michigan Repub-
lican and Democratic leaders
have called for an end to the

open presidential primary.
Under the state's current set-
up, registered voters can cast
their ballots in either the Re-
publican or Democratic column.
But political leaders said yester-

Senate refuses
consumer auto bill

LANSING (UPI) - The Sen-
ate has turned down a hotly
contested consumer bill that
would have allowed persons who
buy new or used cars on credit
to stop payments if they believe
their vehicle is defective.
The measure fell three votes
short of approval yesterday, 17-
18, on a roll call taken in an
emotion-charged chamber just
before Senators launched a de-
bate on a crucial but unrelated
budget matter.
Sen. Anthony Derezinski, (D-
Muskegon) said he had counted
on a narrow victory for the
House-passed measure despite
intense opposition from auto
dealers and was surprised at its
defeat.
He said, however, he would
call for another vote early next
week.
The measure would repeal the
"holder in due course" doctrine
in time payment contracts that
requires car purchasers to con-

tinue payments regardless of the
car's condition. ,
IT WOULD allow individuals
to argue in court that payments
should be stopped because the
vehicle is defective. That pro-
cess, said opponents, would de-
press car sales and force up
the cost and availability of
credit.
Backers said the measure
would actually boost car sales
by forcing dealers to stand be-
hind their product. In other
states, Derezinski said, repeal
of the holder in due course doc-
trine had no ill effects.
"The results show uniformly
that this does not depress the
sales of autos or raise the cost
of credit," he said.
Several attempts to limit the
effectiveness of the measure
were defeated in the Senate.
Supporters compromised on a
proposal to limit the time period
under which payments could be
stopped.

Alabama Gov. George Wal-

have been cured
of cancer?"9
Flip Wilson
National Crusade Chairman
Almost everybody knows someone
who has dted of cancer. But the fact is
about two million living Americans
have been cured. Not only cured but
leading active, normal lives. Another
fact is millions more could be.
By getting to the doctor in time.
By availing themselves of the most
effective methods of treatment today.
By advances made through cancer
research. Research which is made pos-
sible with the help of the American
Cancer Society.
However, there's much more to be
done. To help save more people, the
American Cancer Society needs more
money. So, please, give. We want to
wipe out cancer in your lifetime.
