four years on council and the lack of
coverage of the campaign by the Ann
Arbor News, as partial reasons for
Greene's victory.
A major resource of Stephanopoulos'
campaign was the support given her by
two of Greene's three Democratic
colleagues on City Council, Leslie
Morris (D-Second Ward) and Ken Latta
(D-first Ward).
Morris, presiding over a table at the
would-be victory party last night at a
local restaurant, said low student vote
lost the primary for Stephanopoulos, in
spite of other's claims it was a "moral
victory.".

MORRIS, LATTA, and the
Stephanopoulos campaign made an
issue out of Greene's record, which they
contended was poor.
Second Ward Republican candidate
Toni Burton said she was not surprised
to learn of Greene's victory, but added
that she was disappointed because
student turnout was not as high as she
had hoped.
"I THINK I have a good chance if I
can get the students motivated
enough," in April, Burton said.
"There's a lot of Republicans out
there." A Republican has not held a
council seat in the student dominated

ward in the past decade. In the Second
Ward in 1973, Carol Jones-Dwyer was
the last University undergraduate to
win a seat on the eleven-member coun-
cil which now has a seven to four
Republican majority.
"My wife and I went door-to-door in
95 per cent of our precincts, I won in
eight of the precincts, but Chesbrough
won dramatically in her precincts,"
Velker, 31, said last night in his west
side home.
"THIS WAS by far the best-financed
City Council race in history," Gudenau
said at a party at Holiday Inn West last
night after acknowledging defeat. "Of

course I didn't expect to lose but you
have to give Lou Velker a lot of credit."
Gudenau is the manager of both city
Holiday Inns.

A tense political battle is heating up
in the Fourth Ward where David

second term is being challenged by

oviet offensive in
Afghanistan reported

p From AP and UPI
Soviet troops backed by tanks and
helicopter gunships have launched a
major offensive against Moslem rebels
in southeastern Afghanistan, rebel
spokesperson said yesterday.
The spokesperson also said rebels
captured a strategic airfield at
Faizabad .in the northeastern province
Badakhshan, cutting off supplies to
'eleaguered government forces.
THERE WAS no way to confirm the
Soviet offensive against rebel
ltrongholds in the southeastern Paktia
province. But diplomats in the
Pakistani frontier town of Peshawar
confirmed the capture of the airfield at
Vaizabad.
A Pakistani newspaper reported
sterday that Moslem Afghan rebels
illed 200 Soviet troops during a 10-day
battle that culminated with the rebels
retaking the airport in a provincial
capital in northeastern Afghanistan.
The Daily Jang of Karachi said the
rebels suffered 50 killed during fighting
in Faizabad, but they also claimed to
have captured 15 Soviet troops, shot
down two Soviet fighter planes,
estroyed 17 tanks and four helicopters,
nd seized rifles, machine guns, and
ammunition.
FIGHTING FOR control of the city
195 miles north-northeast of the capital
of Kabul was still going on, the
newspaper said, but the rebels had the

city surrounded. Faizabad is located in
Badakhshan Province where, Western
analysts have said, rebels are
providing some of the stiffest resistan-
ce for Afghan government and Soviet
troops.
The newspaper report could not be
confirmed independently, and the
number of Soviet casualties appeared
exaggerated.
Secretary of State Cyrus Vance is
scheduled to set out on a four-nation
trip to Europe today in an effort to
coordinate the West's response to the
Soviet intervention in Afghanistan.
Vance turned his attention to the
Afghan crisis a day after flying to New
York for surprise talks at the United
Nations on the efforts to free the 50
American hostages held in Iran.
DESPITE REPORTS of progress in
dealing with both major foreign policy
problems, U.S. officials cautioned
against excessive optimism over Van-
ce's twin diplomatic initiatives.
Vance was scheduled to leave this
morning for Bonn, West Germany, to
open a new American effort to coor-
dinate an allied response to the Soviet,
military drive into Afghanistan.
The State Department said Vance
will meet with the foreign ministers of
West Germany, Italy, France and
Britain during stopovers in Bonn,
Rome, Paris and London before retur-
ning to the United States Friday.

per cent student ward. In addition to the
hill area dorms, the ward includes
large numbers of student-rented houses
and apartments.
Both candidates had "challengers"
at polling places in the six precincts.
"Challengers" check the list of those
who have voted against a list of those
who are registered in the precinct and
then try to contact those who have not
yet voted.
AT BURSLEY, in the Second Ward's
precinct nine, 125 people, including 108
students, voted, almost 10 per cent of
those registered.
Marc Abrams, senior adviser to
Stephanopoulos, said the Greene vic-
tory in the ninth precinct, which in-
cludes Bursley, was a major factor in
Greene's victory in the primary.
In the first Republican primary since
the ward lines were redrawn following
the 1970 census, more than 1,600 votes
were cast. The ward traditionally votes
Republican. Following the announ-
cement of Joyce Chesbrough's victory,
third place finisher William Gudenau
said, "Joyce made her play for the
Democrat vote which showed because
ARE YOU LETTING
CLASSES GET TO
YOU?
RELAX
Take a 1 aiI break
. . you deserve it!

there were over 1,500 votes and only
1,800 Republicans in the ward.
In the central campus'dorms, apathy
seemed to be predominant. Election
workers sat idle at polling places while
students gave various reasons for not
voting.
Mosher-Jordan resident Howard
Morof said he did not vote, because he
wished to maintain registration in his
home town of Southfield. "I feel that my
input in the political process is more
relevant in Southfield because that's
where all my ties are," said Morof.
"But I probably would like to see
Stephanopoulos win because it would
bring a broader perspective to City
Council."
