Second Ward Republican ights uphill battle

By JOHN GOYER
and WILLIAM THOMPSON
If students turn out to vote Monday for Second
Ward Republican City Council candidate and Univer-
sity student Toni Burton, their votes just might mean
a victory over Democratic incumbent councilmem-
ber Earl Greene.
But that's a big if.
Although the Second Ward is 85 to 90 per cent
students, only about 3,000 of the 14,000 registered
voters in the ward are between 18 and 20 years old,
according to statistics from the city clerk's office.
Since the redrawing of ward lines in the early 1970s,
the Second Ward has not elected a Republican to City
Council.
THE SECOND WARD is a wedge of the city's nor-
theast side, bounded roughly by State Street to the
west and a diagonal line drawn from the center of the

city to th northeast. The ward includes the Hill dor-
ms, Bursley, Baits and East Quad.
The student vote was a meaty bone of contention in
February's Democratic primary, in which LSA
student Stacy Stephanopoulos lost the Democratic
nomination to Greene by a mere 29 votes.
Greene believes he is safe from any Republican
challenge.
GREENE, RUNNING for his third two-year term,
has declared that no Republican has a chance in the
ward, and Burton will receive no more than 20 per
cent of the vote, despite her student status. "There
are no Republicans in the ward," said Greene, "so

they had to nominate a student."
THOSE ISSUES that Greene has cited as foremost
in the Second Ward concern increased housing and
city planning.
Greene put much of the blame for the area's
housing shortage squarely on the University for not
building enough student housing.
Greene recommended "leaning on the University
to do more than they are doing" in increasing
University housing.
Greene has proposed a program to "include all
persons in the community in a task force to deter-
mine what can be done to increase the volume of
housing."
ON PLANNING, Greene has continually accused
the Republicans on Council with trying to adjust the
city's planning for their own political advantage, with

SEVERAL HASH BASH participants enjoy themselves on the Diag in front of the Graduate Library. Some violence
and severals arrests marred the annual celebration yesterday.
High schoolers invade city for
col Ninth Annual1 Hash Bash.

From AP and UPI
MILWAUKEE-President Carter
defeated Sen. Edward Kennedy in
Wisconsin's presidential primary
election last night, won Kansas in a
landslide, and squelched his
challenger's week-old comeback.
Ronald Reagan wona 3-to-1
Republican runaway in Kansas. He led
a close contest in Wisconsin over
former U.N. Ambassador George Bush
and Rep. John Anderson of Illinois.
An Associated Press-NBC News poll
of voters said Reagan led in Wisconsin
and the television networks forecast his
victory there.
California Gov. Edmund Brown Jr.,
struggling for survival- in Wisconsin,
was a far-away third there and he said
he is dropping his campaign for the
nomination.
"It is obvious that the voters have
spoken and have given their verdict on
my 1980 campaign and that means that
this will be the last contest in which I
participate in 1980," Brown said last
night.
With the vote counted in 5 per cent of
the Wisconsin precincts, Carted had
16,396 votes, for 54 per cent, Kennedy
9,764, for 32 per cent, and California
Gov. Edmund Brown Jr. 3,585 or 12 per
cent.
IN THE WISCONSIN Republican
primary, Reagan had 13,832, for 38 per
cent, former U.S. Ambassador George
Bush 12,064, 33 per cent, and Rep. John
Anderson of Illinois 10,063 for 28 per
cent.
In Kansas, with 61 per cent of the
precincts counted, it was:
Reagan 124,281 or 62 per cent, for 19
presidential nominating delegates.
Anderson 31,414 or 19 per cent for 5
delegates.
Bush 22,675 or 13 per cent for 3
delegates.
The balance was scattered among
nine minor and dropout candidates, and
an uncommitted line on the ballot. Four
uncommitted delegates were being
elected.

For the Democrats, it was Carter
61,341 or 56 per cent for 23 delegates;
Kennedy 35,143 or 32 per cent for 14
delegates.
BROWN, WHO DID not campaign in
Kansas, had 5,483 votes, for 5 per cent.
Another five per cent of the voters
marked their ballots for "none of the
names shown."
The Wisconsin GOP race apparently,
drew a heavy crossover of Democratic

voters,; sought particularily by
Anderson. The crossover vote was not
available to Anderson in Kansas, which
kept voters in their own parties.
The results yesterday, plus
Louisiana's primary Saturday, mark a
break in the primary parade. Although
delegate selection will continue in a
number of state caucuses and
conventions, there will be no more
primary voting until April 22.

High school students, self-appointed
bbyists, and leather-jacketed
velers braved a cold, damp day to
oke pot, sell their wares, play
isbee, and "have a good time" at
esterday's Ninth Annual Ann Arbor
lash Bash.
ost university students showed lit-
interest in the anneal event. Even
articipants seemed to feel that this
ear's festivities were less spirited than
ashes of the past.
"I've been to ten bashes, and it gets
orse every year," explained one par-
er. "There's no hash, that's the
roblem."

SOME PROTESTED the political
atmosphere of the event. "This anti-
war stuff has nothing to do with pot,"
said one leather-jacketed observer,
pointing to an anti-war flag being
waved in the midst of the crowd. "It's
still fun coming out and getting high,
though," he added.
Still another deplored the lack of
political elements present at the Bash.
Carrying a sign reading "Free John
Sinclair," University staff member
Douglas Thompson said, "The Bash has
moved away from a political gathering
of tribes to a hedonistic gathering of
tribes . . . I'm here to represent the
days when the bash was more
politically oriented."
SEVERAL RELIGIOUS elements

V.L.

were also present. "I'm here to remind
everyone what Jesus did," explained
Chris Ramsey, member of Jesus
People U.S.A. Carrying a nine-foot
cross constructed of weathered two-by-
fours, Ramsey passed out literature
advocating "freeing the Marijuana 30
million."
Rocks and pennies were showered on
a self-appointed preacher who was
trying to "spread the word" to a group
of people sitting on the steps of the Grad
Library. An unidentified woman ex-
plained that "Even though he was en-
tertaining to watch, the crowd felt
justified in being upset with him
because he was trying to force his
beliefs on us."

From the Associated Press
Iranian President Abolhassan Bani-
Sadr offered yesterday to take over
custody of the American Embassy
hostages if the United States agrees to a
truce in its war of words and economic
and diplomatic pressure against Iran.
A spokesperson for the young Moslem
militants holding the embassy told the
Associated Press they were "staying
quiet" for now on wheth'.r they would
give up theifr 50 American captives to
the Iranian government. Revolutionary
leader Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini
was silent on the question.
Bani-Sadr also made clear that no
final resolution to the crisis was at
hand, saying that no matter who has
custody of the hostages, they will be
freed only after the exiled Shah
Mohammad Reza Pahlavi is returned
to Iran.
Addressing a huge rally in Tehran,
the Iranian president declared that his
government would take custody of the
Americans if the Carter administration
pledged to refrain from "all propagan-
da or any claim or statement or any
provication" until Iran's new
Parliament meets to decide the
hostages' fate.

President Carter, newly hopeful that
the hostages would be transferred to
the Iranian.,.government, ,deferred
taking fresh punitive actions yesterday
against Iran.
Carter acknowledged he had no
guarantee that Bani-Sadr would deliver
on his promise, but he appeared to be
optimistic nevertheless.
In briefing reporters on the develop-
ments, Carter made no mention of
Bani-Sadr's conditions - that the
United States not initiate propaganda
or provocation against Iran.
NYC copes

shutdown
From the Associated Press
NEW YORK-The biggest rapid
transit strike in the nation's history
shut. down all bus and subway lines
yesterday in New York City, but the
city's 7.5 million people made the
"unthinkable" workable.
For the most part, they got to
work-in an expedition to Manhattan
one Wall Street businessman described
as similar to the British amphibious
evacuation of Dunkirk in World War II.
The work stoppage by 35,000 transit
workers was compounded by a
simultaneous strike by 6,200 employees
of the Long Island Rail Road, which
serves heavily populated suburbs of 2.7
million people.
"THE UNTHINKABLE has
happened and now we have to figure out
how to live with the unthinkable and we
will, declared Mayor Edward Koch.
"Life will go on and we will do whatever
hs to be done."

~UPREME COURT JUSTICE PRESIDES:

Law students argue mock cases

By STEVE HOOK
The courtroom was filled with
suspense as the "counsels for the
aetitioner and respondents" defended
heir cases. Five prominent judges,
ncluding U.S. Supreme Court
sociate Justice Byron White, listened
ntently to their arguments, often
nterrupting them to clarify specific
oints. In the gallery, spectators filled
-very aisle, crammed the clorners, and
foisted themselves along the window
edges.
This was not the setting of an'
mportant judicial decision, but rather
he scenario yesterday afternoon at
lutchins Hall where eight University

law students competed in the finals of
the annual Henry Campbell
Competition.
Since October, 77 law students have
confronted each other in mock
courtrooms with Law School officials
posing as judges. They defended
contemporary legal arguments, similar
to those they will face in "real life"
after graduation.
IN THE COMPETITION finals
yesterday two cases were heard, each
involving two-member teams of
"petitioners" and "respondents," who
presented their arguments for the
court.
In addition to the Supreme Court's
Associate Justice White, four other

distinguished legal figures presided
over yesterday's competition. White's
brother, Associate Dean James White
of Michigan's Law School was present,
along with Circuit Judges Joseph Snead
and Patricia Wald of the United States
Court of Appeals, and University Law
Prof. Peter Weston.
IN THE FIRST hypothetical case, the
students debated whether a 16-year-old
girl should have the right to decide to
have an abortion, despite her parents'
objections and a psychiatrist's report
that the girl was not mature enough to
raise a child. The judges ruled that the
team of Peter Shinevar and David
Foltyn, who defended the girl,
presented a better argument than the

respondents Wuedlyn Scarncchia and
Maria Perez.
The second hypothetical case
involved a group of four women who
wished to have abortions, but did not
wish to go through the procedure more
apt to result in a live birth-a procedure.
that would be more physically
dangerous to them.
The judges ruled that the argument
presented by Michael Lowenstein and
GAry Simon, who defended the fetus,
was more persuasive than the defense
presented by "lawyers" Peter
Silverman and Gregory Spaly.
"I'M EXHAUSTED," sighed Peter
Silverman, one of the finalists. After his

John came to Hill Auditorium, tickets were gone within
hours. Well, Harold Shapiro may not be The Who or
Fleetwood Mac, but you won't have to wait in any long lines
or sleep on any hard floors to see the University's own
celebrity. Tickets for Shapiro's inauguration on April 14 at
Hill are being given away at the Office of the Registrar, and
people aren't beating down the doors to pick up one of the
1,000 tickets that the office is providing. Reports from the
office sav that only 200 of the 1,000 tickets were taken

and the instructor who came out on top was Prof. Norman
Scott. Scott, who has taught at the University for 129 years,
said he was "delighted. This is the nicest thing that can
happen to a professor." Q
