Convicted man takes cyanide

PONTIAC, Mich. (UII)-Oak-
land County millionaire Jack
Rose died by his own hand
rather than go to jail for the
rest of his life.
Rose, 46, tossed two cyanide
pills into his mouth in a crowd-
ed Oakland County courtroom
Friday while his mother, girl
friend and an aunt looked on.
Rose never regained conscious-
ness and died late Sunday in
the intensive care anit of a
Pontiac hospital.
AN AUTOPSY was completed
yesterday, but officials at the

Oakland County Medical Exam-
iners office said they would
wait until a toxicology report
was finished later this week
before ruling on the cause of
death.
The scene came moments af-
ter the Southfield man, heir to
the fortune left him from his
lather's building enterprises,
was sentenced to life in prison
by Judge Ernest Opplinger.
Rose took the capsules after
asking Opplinger whether he,
could remain free on bond while
appealing his conviction. Op-
plinger told Rose he could not

advise him on the matter until
after an appeal was filed.
"AS I understand it then, I
go to jail today?" Rose asked
from the defense table. Opplin-
ger said yes. Rose popped the-
capsules in his mouth.
"He took a pill," cried Lorell
Lair, Rose's girlfriend. "He
took medicine to kill himself."
Lair later told police that
Rose had said he would kill
himself if he was given a long
prison sentence. He had kept
cyanide tablets in a coffee jar
at his home, she said, until she

talked him into getting rid of
them.
ROSE, whose personal fortune
has been estimated as high as
$5 million, was convited June
24 of agreeing to pay S8,0W- to
have his former wife, Doris,
murdered. The man R o s e
agreed to pay for the murder
was an undercover detective
from W a t e r f o r d Township.
Rose's wife, who divorced him
in 1969, was never harmed.
During his trial, Rose twice
admitted guilt to the attempted
plot.

THEY DON'T WANT US
ON THE BALLOT!I
IrN March 1976, the law said we needed 17,500 signatures from registered voters throughout the
state to get Communist Labor Party member and working class leader Mr. General Baker Jr. on
the ballot to run for State Representative in the 9th district.
We got more than 33,000.
WHAT ARE THEY AFRAID OF?
In April 1976, when they saw that we would get enough signatures, they passed a NEW law'
which said that signatures were not enough.For the first time in the history of the United States,
there will be a PARTY QUALIFICATION SECTION on your August 3 primary ballot.
To stay on the ballot in November, the Communist Labor Party must get about 5,000 votes in'
the August primary. Voters WHO CHOOSE TO VOTE IN THE PARTY QUALIFICATION
SECTION OF THEIR -BALLOT FOR THE RIGHT OF THE CLP OR ANY OTHER PARTY,
TO BE ON THE BALLOT ARE PREVENTEG lY THE NEW LAW FROM VOTING IN EITHER
THE OEMOCRATIC OR REPUBLICAN PRIMARY. ..
PROTECT YOUR CIVIL RIGHTS
This law is a fundamental violation of the- civil rights of every Michigan. voter. Its avowed
purpose is to keep the so called minor parties off the -baHot. It represents an attempt to throw
democracy out the window, to protect the power and privilegeof thecapitalist Democratic and
Republican .parties since fewer and fewer people vote for them in every election,
KEEP THE C3MMUNIST LABOR PART Y
ON 's NTE- BALLO!
A vote for the CLP is a vote for your civil rights. It is a vote for our right to be on the ballot.
It is a vote for the party which has lought for bussing, better conditions and lower rents in the
housing projects, better working conditions from the auto bosses and against the constant threat f
of war that we face-under capitalism.
A vote for the Communist Labor Party is a vote for our platform of JOBS, PEACE & EQUALITY.

tion. Council Democrats, princi-
pally Kenworthy, had asked for
clarifications on the proposal be-
fore making their decision.
Some positive a ction was
taken at the meeting, however,
A proposal by Jones to allow
posting of political signs was de-
feated when councilman Gerald
Bell (R-Fifth Ward) reminded
Jones of her anti-eyesore argu-
ment over the front lawn park-
ing question. B e s i d e s, Bell,
argued, city residents have ac-
cess to alternate media-radio,
TV, newspapers-removing the
necessity for political signs.
JONES, swhose argument was
that politics "should be tken
out of the closet," was adamant
She was joined by Keogh, who
added her own reason for sup
porting Jones: "I think anybody
should be able to do anything
they want on their own lawn."

the incident) have injured his
opportunities for future em-
ployment."
BAYSINGER, nursing a bro-
ken arm received in the fight,
commented, "I'm currently
taking my grievance (about the
loss of his job) to the Team-
sters Union (to which depart-
ment deputies belong)."
When asked for his reaction
to the suit Postill said, "I had
assumed that he fBaysinger
would do something like this
(before the election)."
Laurence Burgess, Postill's
attorney, said, "The whole
thing it politically motivated."
Burgess contends that the
Baysingers would not have tak-
en such action without sugges-
tion from Garris, a supporter
of former sheriff Douglas Har-
vey. Baysinger has said he
would appoint Harvey to the
post of undersheriff if elected.
HE ALSO claims that the in-
vestigation of the fight was
biased. "I'm not saying that
there was a conspiracy 'ut the
State Police assumed a -posi-
tion from the beginning. They
took Postil and Donley as the
'bad guys' and interviewed
mainly Garcis - supplied wit-
nesses."
An investigation by the sher-
fif's office, utilizing additional
witnesses is now being con-
ducted.
Postill is scheduled to appear
in Chelsea district court Au-
gust 9 for a preliminary hear-
ing.
"If he is bound over for trial
in Chelsea," said Burgess, "I'm
very confident it won't go far
after the election."
