Greene edges student challenger

to ower
TORONTO - Liberal Party
leader Pierre Trudeau scored the
greatest election comeback in
Canadian political history last night,
ousting Prime Minister Joe Clark's
nine-month-old Conservative gover-
With 159 of 281 election districts
tabulated, the Liberals had won 119
seats and were leading in 24. They
needed 142 for a majority. The Con-
servatives had 36 seats and were
leading in 22. The socialistic New
Democratic Party had won 'four
seats and were leading in nine.
The Liberals were winning 47 per
cent of the popular vote, the Conser-
vatives 31 per cent and' the New
Democrats 18 per cent, according to
the Canadian Broadcasting Cor-
who had ended Trudeau's 11-year
tenure in Canada's last election May
22, was elected or leading in 48, and
Ed Broadbent's socialist New
Democratic Party had five.
Canada is divided by population
into 282 electoral districts, each
represented by a "seat" in the
House of Commons. The candidate
receiving the most votes in each
district is elected to Parliament and
the party with the most members
forms the government.
For Trudeau, 60 and prime
minister from April 1968 to May
1979, this would be his fourth term as
government chief. He had said this
was his last election and that he
would step down in two or three
years. He handily won re-election to
his Parliament seat in his Mount
Royal district in Montreal.
THE LIBERAL tide against
Clark's Progressive. Conservatives
began in the eastern Maritime
provinces, where Trudeau's team
took four House of Commons seats
that had been held by Conservatives
in Prince Edward Island and Nova
Scotia, and swept across staunchly
Liberal Quebechintoall-important
Ontario, which has 95 seats in the
282-seat House.
"Obviously we're very en-
couraged and very pleased," the
national Liberal Party president,
Alasdair Graham, said of the early

primary; Greene in 2nd Ward


Incumbent Earl Greene
edged student challenger Stacy
Stephanopoulos for the
Democratic nomination in the
Second Ward City Council
Sprimary last night.
Greene won by just 3.7 per
cent of the vote, garnering 399
votes to the LSA junior's 370.

the April 7 general city election
for his third term on council.
AFTER THE unofficial results were
announced at the city clerk's office, at
his victory party at Bacchus Gardens
Greene said, "I'm very happy. We
worked a strategy which worked with
students but didn't appeal only to
students. I want to relate to all people.
Part of our strategy was to work hard in
2-9 (theBursley Hall precinct). A lot of
students voted for us." Greene won in
precinct 9 by more than two to one.
With 37.6 per cent of the Fifth Ward
vote, Joyce Chesbrough a civics
teacher at Slauson Junior High,
defeated three other candidates forthe
Republican nomination. She will face
Democrat Thomas Bletcher for James
Cmejrek's seat in the traditionally
Republican ward in the western part of
the city.
Lou Velker, assistant general
manager of Radio Station WYFC,
placed second with 524 votes to
Chesbrough's 597.
ACCORDING TO unofficial counts,
Velker won in seven of the twelve Fifth
Ward precincts but Chesbrough won by
large majorities in precincts 11 and 12.
William Gudenau came in third in the
Fifth Ward race despite a $4,400 cam-
paign and the support of many
established local Republicans. A. J.

FIFTH WARD REPUBLICAN primary winner Joyce Chesbrough relaxes
with her husband Richard last night at their home. Chesbrough will face
Democrat Thomas Bletcher in the April City Council election.

As is typical for Ann Arbor City
Council primaries, voter turnout was
light yesterday for the Second and Fifth
Ward contests. A total of 2,355 votes
were cast in the two wards. In last
year's mayoral primary, when
primaries were held in two wards, the
vote tally reached 2,766.
City Clerk Al Vollbrecht called the
turnout "reasonably, good" in the
Democratic contest in the Second Ward
and the Republican runoff in the Fifth.
IN THE SIX Second Ward precincts,
with polling places in University dor-
ms, each candidate won three. While
University junior Stacy Stenhanopoulos

won a large majority in Markley and
Mosher Jordan, Greene won by more
than two to one in Bursley.
Both Democratic candidates for the
Second Ward nomination made strong
bids to register students and campaign

Lalonde received only 12 votes after a
low key campaign.
Following her victory last night,
Chesbrough said she won "because of
20 years in the ward and I guess the
Chesbrough name meant something to
the voters." Chesbrough served on the
Ann Arbor Transportation Authority
(AATA)arid the Washtenaw County
Jury Commission.
Following news of her loss to Greene
last night, Stephanopoulos and her
campaign workers consoled them-
selves with the thought that they had.
won a "moral victory" by turning
students out to vote in the Second Ward.
"I don't know that anything went

wrong," Stephanopoulos said. "We
tried to get students to turn out," she
"WE LOST. but we won. Unfor-
tunately, we didn't win enough," said
Scott North, a close friend and suppor-
ter of Stephanopoulos.
Asked if she would support Greene
now in his race against Burton in the
April general elections, Stephanopoulos
replied, "I'll probably stay out of the
Second Ward race."
Stephanopoulos' senior campaign
advisor.Marc Abrams cited Greene's
name recognition as an incumbent with

Carter, students discuss draft


U.S., Iran agree to
U.N. panel members

From AP and UPI
The United States and Iran have
separately agreed to the members of a
commission to investigate the deposed
shah and the panel will go to Tehran in
a few days, the United Nations announ-
ced yesterday. There vas no word on
how or when this might bring release of
the hostages held in the U.S. Embassy
The five men reportedly named to the\
U.N. inquiry commission on Iran are
virtually unknown to Americans, but
have won prestige in the circles of in-
ternational law and diplomacy during
their careers.
THE FIVE - named by UPI as
definite members and by AP as poten-
tial members of the panel - are:
" Mohamed Bedjaoiu, Algeria's U.N.
* Andres Aguilar, Venezuela's for-
mer ambassador to Washington;

+ Adib Daoudy, foreign policy ad-
viser to the president of Syria;
* Hector Jayewardene, brother of the
president of Syria; and
" Edmond-Louis Pettiti, former
president of the Paris Bar Association.
The commission is tilted toward the
Third World. Two nations represented
- Algeria and Syria - form part of the
radical Arab bloc and Sri Lanka is a
longstanding member of the non-
aligned movements.
Venezuela is, generally pro-Western.
France, while a member of the NATO
alliance, gave refuge to Ayatollah
Ruhollah Khomeini and other Iranian
exiles before they returned to Iran in
revolutionary triumph last year.
TWO MEMBERS, the Syrian and the
Algerian, are Moslem, like Iran's
leaders. Two others, the Frenchman
and the Venezuelan, are Roman

President Carter and
National Security Advisor
Zbigniew Brzezinski met with
300 student leaders from
across the country - in-
cluding Michigan Student
Assembly (MSA) President
Jim Alland - in Washington
Friday to discuss the rein-
statement of draft
Both Carter and Brzezinski
reaffirmed that the proposal
now before Congress is a
necessary step to protect
American interests abroad,
Alland said in an interview
"The overriding concern at
the conference was the
registration," Alland said.
"It's hard to know what a
imeeting like this will do,
however, it's always to ex
apress views." He described
his own feelings on
registration as "very mixed."
Campaign workers for Sen.
Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.)
invited the visiting students to
a reception at Kennedy's

Washington headquarters, but
Alland said he did not attend
He added that students ex-
pressed concern that they
were being used as political
pawns. "To say that it was not
a political move (on Carter's
part) would be nothing, less
than naive," he said.
ALland, however, said he
felt the president was "very
sincere" in his desire to hear
student response to foreign
policy. "I really got the feeling
that they wanted to hear what
the mood was across the

Although Carter and Br-
zezinski explained why they
feel registration is needed,
"There was never a direct ap-
peal to say 'Will you support
us in this policy'," Alland said.
"There was great effort
made in differentiating bet-
ween registration and the
draft," Alland said, apparen-
tly in order to .assure the
students that registration
would not necessarily lead to
the draft.
But Alland said registration
has led to draft in the past, and
some students at the con-

happen again.
Alland said.. Carter ad-
dressed the students "as
future policy makers," while
Brzezinski and domestic
policy chief Stuart Eizenstadt
spoke in an informational

argument for registration un-
convincing because it did not
address the questions of
registration's military
necessity, its psychological ef-
fects, or its future purposes.
Carter, he said, did not duck

any punches on his reasons for
registration. "He came right
out and said that it (calling for
registration) was a policy
message to the Soviet Union
that we will defend our
national interests and our
allies," Alland explained.
Alland said the conference
between the president and
students was "a very
significant step for students in
the nation . . . It's recognition
of their power to influence the
outcome of policies and elec-
"(Carter's) whole talk was
inspirational. He said that it's
hard to stand up and take a
stand, but this country was
founded on idealism and dif-
ference of opinion. Leaders of
tomorrow should strive to
maintain those ideals," Alland
"Young people today are
concerned and are interested
and are willing to put in the ef-
fort to make the change even
though they're not as vocal"
as the sixties and seventies
protesters were, Alland said.


Carter 'came right out and said that it was a policy message
to the Soviet Union and that we will defend our national
interests and our allies.'

Gorman said that Alice Lloyd building director David

that arrangements with the American Red Cross are

week when the militants kidnapped him from LSA

in one local district to begin a campaign to stop the dancers
in their tracks. Officials sought out dancers, the newspaper
said, and informed them that dances attracted thieves, led
to fights, and corrupted public morals. The dance fans were
requested to hang up their shoes, turn over a new leaf, and
improve their morals. The newspaper said many of the
dancers bowed to the pressure and decided to give it up, but
added that a few obstinate others are holding out,
presumably still dancing the night away. Fred Astaire and
