Wilder has lead in early

by the Associated Press
L. Douglas Wilder of Virginia,
the grandson of slaves, forged a slen-
der lead yesterday in his bid to be-
come the nation's first elected Black
governor. Democratic Rep. James
Florio won the New Jersey gover-
norship handily, ending eight years
of Republican control.
Democrat David Dinkins sought
triumph as New York City's first
Black mayor in the third high-profile
race of off-year elections enlivened
by the combustible mix of race and
In the sole congressional seat on
the ballot, early returns put city
council member Anthony Hall and
state Sen. Craig Washington far out
front in an 11-way Texas race to
succeed the late Rep.. Mickey Le-
land. Neither Democrat was gaining
50 percent of the vote needed to
avoid a runoff.
Democratic National chair Ron
Brown claimed victory for Wilder
and Dinkins as well as Florio, and
GOP chair Lee Atwater did not dis-
pute him. Atwater said abortion
"made a difference" for the pro-choice
Democratic candidates in all three
races, but said the results would have
no bearing on the 1990 elections.

In Seattle, city councilman Norm

The Virginia contest focused On
aboition as much as race, with
Wilder emphasizing his pro-choice
views. The issue seemed to spill
over to the lieutenant governor'sxrace

Beyer defied the pre-election polls to
score a victory.
Democratic chair Brown pro-
claimed a "great day for Democrats
but an even better day for America."
"We Democrats have taught our-
selves a lot about working together
and pulling for mainstream Amer-
ica," he said, looking ahead to' the
1990 elections in which 34 Senate
seats, 36 governorships and all 435
House seats will be contested.
Atwater said "there were local

Lenin seized power from a provi-

Those who marched more than
four hours in the unofficial column

"We're tired of 70 years of
Communist power with nothing
having changed for the better, and
this is our protest," said Taisya Sh-

acterized communist rule as "72

The Michigan Daily
You don't need the aggravation
of interviewing important Univer-
sity and government officials. You
just might find yourself uncover-
ing a major controversy, which
could leave you writing a number
of widely-read articles and could
really mess up your social calen-
dar. You might find yourself called
inat 9 p.m. to write alate-breaking
story the entire campus will be
talking about the next day. And
what if there's something good on
TV that night?
No, working for an entirely stu-
dent-run and student-managed
newspaper that's enjoyed editorial
freedom since 1890 can only lead
to trouble. It might start with one
innocent article. But then you'll
find yourself wanting to do an-
other. And another. The next
thing you know, you'll be doing
layouts. Even editing. And by the
time you realize that you're enjoy-
ing it, you'll be beyond help.

University radio stations WUbM, WVGR; and
WFUM kicked off their final fundraising drive of the
decade yesterday by giving their listeners not only news,
classical music, and jazz, but also sweatshirts, mugs,
and their own blend of coffee: "Michigan Brew."
The fund-raising drive, which will last until Nov.
13, began at 6 a.m. yesterday, and so far "it feels good
and the telephones are ringing," said Shelley MacMil-
lan, WUOM/WVGR development and marketing direc-
The stations - WUOM, 91.7 FM in Ann Arbor;
WVGR, 104.1 FM in Grand Rapids; and WFUM, 91.1
FM in Flint - get 31 percent of their individual con-
tributions from this drive, and will take pledges from
callers to help them reach their goal of $125,000. Such
contributions make up 33 to 40 percent of the stations'
annual budget of more than $1 million, MacMillan
Almost 400 Michigan companies, including Michi-
gan Bell and General Motors, have agreed to match the
pledges of their employees.
"The list of companies who will match their em-
ployees' pledges is incredible," MacMillan said. "They
aren't just major companies, either. There are many
smaller companies as well.

Aside from pledging money, individuals can donate
their time to answer phones and take pledges. Volun-
teers will contribute over 300 hours of time during the
week in two-hour intervals.
"Since students don't always have a lot of money to
pledge, volunteering their time is a great way to hel
out," said MacMillan.
At least two people answer the phones reguthrly
"receiving several calls every two minutes," said vbjun-
teer Peter Irons, 43. "We are quite busy.... We iaren'
sitting around."
"I have been listening to 104.1 in Grand Rapids-fcr.a
number of years and have decided to make a contribetidn
of time as well as money," said Irons. "Since I cane 411

Volunteers give their time and money becauset@ie
Public Broadcasting helps bring quality programmitfgto
the listener," Irons said.
"Even though Michigan Radio is owned by the re-
gents of the University, we serve more than just the
University population," MacMillan said.
The money raised from the
"Radio Fest '89" will support programming-pro-
duced by Michigan Radio and purchased from the Na-
tional Public Radio service.
Pledges can be made by calling 764-3434 from sic
a.m. to eleven p.m.
