Alternatives aboi

For state voters bored with the more
conventional platforms of the two
leding candidates for governor
several smaller parties offer some
wilder alternatives.
Want to abolish the Federal Reserve
oard? Vote for the Rev. James
lillips, who is running on the
iknerican Independent Party ticket.
'WANT THE state to expropriate all
rsonal income over $50,000? Vote for
artin McLaughlin of the Workers
vague Party.
The four minor party candidates are
quick to agree with suggestions that the
Democratic and Republican parties of-
fer only the same old rhetoric. And
voters who want a more radical change
in government, they say they have
just the program.
McLaughlin, who graduated from the
University in 1971, said his Workers
League Party is guided by the political
philosophies of the * Russian
revolutionary Leon Trotsky. "Only
Trotskyism is continuity of
Marxism," McLaughlin points out.
MCLAUGHLIN, 32, said he ad-
vocates a radical reform of the state's
taxing system. As governor, he would
seek to expropriate all personal income
over $50,000 and exempt from taxation
all persons with incomes below $25,000.
"The capitalist system is bankrupt,"
he said. "I'm not for reducing the
defense budget, but for eliminating it."
Tim Craine, a 38-year-old Detroit
school teacher, said his Socialist
Workers Party supports the creation of
massive public works and jobs

programs. These programs, he said,
could be funded through heavy taxes on
corporations and wealthy individuals.
"AS A TEACHER, I'm particularly
alarmed by the legislative cutbacks
in education," he said. "We believe
higher education should be free.

retiring after serving 14 years in the
governor's chair. His hand-picked suc-
cessor, Lt. Gov. James Brickley, was
upset in the Republican primary by
Headlee, a Farmington Hills insurance
company executive.
What has ensued is a race between a
businessman vowing to run the state
like a business and a congressman who
has staked his campaign largely on his
1979 bailout scheme for the ailing
Chrysler Corp. And, according to the
polls, Blanchard seems to be winning
that race.
A poll sponsored by the Detroit Free
Press and WXYZ-TV showed Headlee.

BEYOND THE controversies with
women's groups, which have pushed
several prominent Republicans into the

Blanchard camp, including Elly Peter-
son, former state GOP Chairwoman,
Headlee has toed a line similar to
President Reagan's-less taxes and
less regulation of industry.
Reagan's policies are just "common
sense," Headlee says. "The problem is
not reforms, the problem is gover-
nment spends too much." Headlee has
blasted the current leadership of the
state, including Milliken, for allowing
state employees' salaries to rise and for
allowing state social service recipients
to receive much more than their coun-
terparts in other states.
To counter that buildup, Headlee has
proposeda shifting of money away
from social. services to public
education, which has suffered the bulk
of budget cuts made by the state in the
past few years. He would freeze gover-
nment salaries and taxes and repeal the
small business tax as well.
CRITICS HAVE charged that all of
Headlee's plans add up to Reaganomics
on a state rather than national scale-
the same policies, they say, that have
been disastrous for Michigan. But
Headlee remains firm, charging "I am
running against a candidate who will

put our children and grandchildren in
Surprisingly enough, Blanchard says
he is not opposed to Headlee's economic
plans. "There's nothing wrong with
that (Headlee's) approach. You just
have to go beyond it," Blanchard said,
noting that Headlee's "trickle-down
economics" would take 40 years to
reach the poor. Going beyond Headlee's
emphasis on the free market involved

The Blanchard economic plan in-
volves a public works program finan-
ced not by new taxes but by the sale of
state revenue bonds, ,he said. The
projects would be carried out by
private firms performing such tasks as
repairing roads, rundown houses, and
dilapidated sewer systems.
BLANCHARD insists the state can
sell the bonds to finance such a scheme,
though he is unsure how many jobs it
will create, and despite the fact that
many have said the state's poor bond
rating will make such bonds difficult to

Israel forms mini-cabinet
Four Israeli Cabinet ministers formed a secret committee to keep a check
on Defense Minister Ariel Sharon during the invasion of Lebanon, devising
their own intelligence-gathering system because they did not trust Sharon, it
was reported yesterday.
Israel radio said the "mini-cabinet," formed to keep tabs on Sharon
without the knowledge of Prime Minister Menachem Begin, devised its own
system of gathering information on the war through contacts in the Israeli
Defense Forces and the defense and foreign ministries.
'.... Sharon fought the war on two fronts," the radio's political correspon-
dent quoted an unnamed Cabinet minister as saying. "against them and
against us."
Asource close to Begin said the prime minister knew nothing about the
political maneuvering in his cabinet - an apparent attempt by the ministers
to distance themselves from Sharon's conduct of the war.
Man claims child from 'witches'
LOS ANGELES- A man won temporary custody of his 212-year-old
daughter after testifying that his estranged wife lived with lesbian witches in
a mirror-lined mansion guarded by vicious dogs.
One of the residents of the house termed the accusations "a joke."
Tuan Tran, 32, of Arcadia, in documents filed in Superior Court two days
before Halloween, said he feared for the safety of his daughter, Purdy
Tran claimed the toddler was being "indoctrinated into the world of wit-
ches, occult and lesbianism" at a house filled with mirrors and surrounded
by high weeds.
"Purdy came home and told me, 'Jesus is bad,' 'Daddy is bad.' She had
never spoken like this before," Tran said, adding that he had a "minor exor-
cism" performed on the child by a Roman Catholic priest.
Suspect's letter claims he's
innocent in Tylenol murders
CHICAGO - A letter purportedly written by an extortion suspect being
sought for questioning in the Tylenol murders says he is innocent of the
seven cyanide-poisoning deaths.
"As you have probably guessed, my wife and I have not committed the
Chicago-area Tylenol murders. We do not go around killing people. We
never had and never shall," said the letter to the Chicago Tribune
The letter, published yesterday, was signed "Robert Richardson," which
authorities say is one of several aliases used by James Lewis, named in a
federal arrest warrant charging him with extortion.
The Tribune said in a copyright story that the letter, written in longhand,
was part of an inch-thick packet that arrived at the newspaper Friday. The
envelopewas postmarked Oct. 27 from New York where the Lewises last
were seen.
The Tribune said it turned the letter and othermaterial over to the FBI.
Bureau officials said there was no reason to doubt its authenticity but it
would be verified with handwriting analysis.
U.S. officials dispel Soviet threats
WASHINGTON - Despite a hard-line speech by Soviet President Leonid
Brezhnev, the Reagan administration does not anticipate a major shift in
Kremlin policy toward the United States.
Officials assessing Brezhnev's blunt speech to the Soviet military
establishment Wednesday do not appear concerned by his threat to increase
the combat-readiness of the Soviet armed forces and to upgrade military
These officials, who asked not to be identified, are convinced that Brezhnev
was attempting to respond to what the Soviet president called the
"rudeness" of the Reagan administration.
Brezhnev was apparently nettled by President Reagan's off-hand remark
on Oct. 15 that the Soviets had to buy additional American grain "because
they just aren't smart," the oficials said.
The Kremlin, about to select a new leader, is eager to display strength and
confidence to deter opponents from seeking to take advantage during un un-
certain period, officials said.
'69 nuclear freeze plan found
WASHINGTON - Supporters of a nuclear freeze released yesterday a 1969
document showing that then-President Nixon's arms-control director
proposed a verifiable weapons moratorium much like the one they advocate.
The Federation of American Scientists disclosed the document three days
before one-fourth of the nation votes on nine statewide and 30 local referenda
testing sentiment for a freeze.
The 1969 plan was code-named "Stop Where We Are" by Gerard Smith,
who headed the arms-control agency under Nixon.
It called for "a quantitative and qualitative freeze on all aspects of
strategic offensive and defensive forces that are subject to adequate

verification by national means."
"In view of the extent of our present and projected national intelligence
resources, this essentially amounts to a proposal to "Stop Where We Are"
with respect to strategic forces," Smith wrote.

unemployment through a pumic works

Sallade admits his campaign has
been hurt by a lack of money and by a
late start on the campaign trail.
.Originally, State Rep. Perry Bullard
was going to run for the 2nd District
House seat but decided agianst it in late
June when the district was reappor-
tioned to inelude the Republican areas
of Jackson, Hillsdale, Lenawee, and
Washtenaw counties along with por-
tions of Wayne and Branch counties.
Sallade also admits it will be difficult
to oust the three-term congressman but
hopes that a Democratic coattail effect
will undercut the incumbent's advan-
THROUGHOUT the campaign, Pur-
sell has depicted himself as a man with
White House connections and
Washington influence. The Plymouth
native has emphasized his membership
on the powerful House Appropriations
Committee cand his chairmanship of
the so-called "Gypsy Moths," an
alliance of moderate Northern
Pursell says he is responsible for
legislation which has added $29.9
million to the student loan program and
helped high unemployment areas by
giving them priority for defense con--
tracts. He says he is currently working;
on legislation to modernize the St.

Lawrence Seaway in an effort to open
new markets for Michigan.
PURSELL SAYS he is able to work
behind the scenes where, he says, "the
real work is."
But Sallade calls Pursell's experien-
ce "no reason to elect somebody."
Pursell has no power in the House of
Representatives since the speaker is
Democratic," Sallade said. "I will be
able to get along just as well if not bet-
ter with Tip O'Neill than Carl Pursell."
Like many Democrats thfs year,
Sallade is trying to use the economic
conditions to his advantage. "There is
great disillusionment with
Republicans," he said. "The economy
now affects white-collar workers as
well as blue-collar people."
SALLADE ALSO has attacked Pur-
sell's support for a constitutional
amendment requiring balanced federal
budgets. Such an amendment is a
"hiding place for representatives," ac-
cording to Sallade.
Pursell defends the amendment,
calling it necessary to the fiscal well-
being of the nation. "It's easy to tax
and spend, but we have to show
restraint," said Pursell. "We can't
continually add benefits without facing
