Pontiac OKs
school millage

PONTIAC (UPI)- Despite eight
previous rejections voters turned out in
record numbers yesterday to thwart
the closing of the 20,000-student Pontiac
School System by approving a measure
to increase their property taxes to keep
the economically depressed schools
operating.
Unofficial tallies showed the measure
was approved by 9,871 "yes" votes
compared to 6,294 "no" ballots. Absen-
tee ballots remained to be counted.
"I'M HAPPY," said a beaming
Michigan School Superintendent Phillip
Runkel. "There is still going to be some
cost but the schools will be open-all of
the schools in Michigan will be open."
An estimated 16,500 voters braved
freezing temperatures and high winds
to prevent an almost certain closing of
classrooms Jan. 29th in the depressed
factory community 20 miles north of
Detroit.
The tax plan is expected to generate
$7.1 million but still leaves Pontiac with
a $3 million debt and officials warn
severe cutbacks will be needed to make
up the deficit.
THE MICHIGAN Education
Association hailed the voting results
but urged the Legislature to share of
the burden of funding state schools.
"We're very pleased that the citizens
of the Pontiac School District have once
again made a committment to
education," said Beverly Wolkow of the
MEA. "Now 20,000. young people can
continue their education -without the
threat of schools closing over their

heads. Children should not be subject to
the on-again off-again approach to their
education."
Wolow said the state should make an
increased effort at funding 'the state's
money-tight schools.
In the weeks prior to the special elec-
tion, organized citizen groups in the
blue-collar city have been pushing
"operation keep the schools open," said
the Rev. Chuck Patterson, chairman of
Citizens For Quality Education.
"Thumbs UP" stickers-the city's mot-
to-were distributed in hopes of
boosting morale.

EAST LANSING (UPI) - Tax
slasher Robert Tisch and left-leaning
Zolton Ferency sparred on a public
television show yesterday and even
* discussed the possibility, however
remote, of .endorsing each other for
governor.
Tisch, giving Ferency points for
honesty, at first indicated the East,
Lansing attorney would be his second
choice for governor, but backed off af-
ter learning the veteran campaigner
-would raise taxes if elected.
FERENCY - WHO has criticized
Tisch in the past - was more cautious,
saying he would have to study Tisch's
program before committing himself.

class Smith taught at the University.
"A '58 law school grad told me
property law was the most boring class
and that I was so lucky to have Allan
Smith," first-year law student Frank
Ballantine recounted to Smith yester-
day. "I want you to know he was
wrong," Ballantine continued. "It was
..the most interesting class."
"I think I'll be around when you
graduate," Smith, who will be in
Florida come January, told his class
yesterday. "There are probably two or
-three of you for whom I'll be willing to
- {write a recommendation."

The two political mavericks -
representing the opposite extremes in
the Democratic gubernatorial race -
met on the public television interview
program "Off the Record."
"I guess if Zolton wins, I sure would
support him in the general election,"
said Tisch, who supported Ronald
Reagan rather than Jimmy Carter last
fall.
"I THINK Zolton is pretty solid. You
know where he is-and he stays there,"
said the Shiawassee County drain
commissioner, who has quite a
reputation for being outspoken himself.
Tisch scoffed at the notion that
Ferency is a socialist, saying the
Michigan State University instructor
"doesn't know what a socialist is."
He also balked at the "right-wing
conservative" tag when it was hung on
him.
"I THINK I'm a conservative can-
didate, but I'm not right wing," he said.

"I'd be a Democratic conservative."
He said he is not seeking out support
from the Moral Majority.
Ferency, who backed Citizens Party
candidate Barry Commoner for
president, denied the recent conser-
vative tied in America has left him and

debate
his political viewpoints behind. "As a
matter of fact, the parade is catching
up with us," he said.
He challenged Tisch to say how basic
state services to the needy could be
maintained if taxes were slashed as
deeply as he proposes.
