to rule independent John Anderson off
Michigan's May 20 presidential
primary ballot. .
The suit, filed Tuesday, said the
Illinois congressman's presence on the
ballot will confuse voters and threstens
the integrity of the election process.
THE SUIT also warned Anderson
could he disqualified from the Novem-
ber hallot if he appears in the May vote.
In dismissing the suit, the appeals
court said granting the party's request
at this late dste would "seriously strain
the election machinery and endanger
the election process.
"This complaint for mandamus was
filed on May 13, 1980, the brief in sup-
port ..,. and answer of the defendsnt
were filed on May 14, 1980. Only three
working days remain before the elec-
tion, which was scheduled for May 20,
1980," the court said.

test but continue campaigning as in-
Backers of Republican George Bush
are particularly anxious to get Ander-
son off the ballot, fearing he will draw
precious votes from their underdog
The GOP suit also said a little-known
state law could bar Anderson from run-
ning as a candidste of his independent
party on the November ballot if he ap-
,pears as a Republican in May.
ANDERSON'S attorneys filed to in-
tervene in the case, agreeing he shouldi
be ruled off the ballot but disputing the
Attorney General Frank Kelley's of-
fice, in asking the suit be dismissed,
said it might not be physically possible
