Ferency wants more
delegates for Jackson

DETROIT (UPI) - Activist Attorney
Zolton Ferency, seeking reallocation of
the state's Democratic National Con-
vestion delegates to Jesse Jackson,
yesterday asked the Michigan Court of
Appeals to order state regulation of
Democratic party caucus practices.
The attorney persuaded the court to
hold an expedited hearing yesterday.
The Democratic National Convention,
howevever, opens July 16 in San Fran-
cisco, leaving little time for the court to
act.
FERENCY wants the appeals court
to approximately double the number of
delegates allocated to Jackson, but he
did concede that it may be too late to
get a ruling. Although he expected a
decision late yesterday, the court was
not required to take any action at all.
"I'm grateful that the court would
hear this matter at such a late date,"
Ferency said, "but this case is not
moot these issues have to be resolved.
At issue is an appeal by Ferency from
a decision by Ingham County Circuit
Judge Carolyn Stell in March.
IN HIS initial suit, Ferency main-
tained that the Democratic Party
should have been required to conduct
its presidential nominating caucuses in
accordance with the state constitution
Ferency specifically insisted on a
secret ballot.
great," said Frye.
The University needs a modest
increase to maintain the quality of
education, Baker said.
Regent Thomas Roach (D-Detroit)
yesterday said state appropriations for
the University have fallen 23 percent
over the last ten years, while state-wide
appropriations for higher education fell
only 15 percent.
"I think the legislature is concerned
about rising tuition," said Sen. Robert
Geake (R-Northville), who is a member
of the Senate Higher Education
Appropriations Subcommittee. He
added that many of his constituents are

Stell ruled that caucuses do not fall
under the jurisdiction of the con-
stitution because they are not actual
elections.
Ferency did agree that not much can
be done about the way the caucuses
were conducted, but said the court
could redistribute Michigan's delegates
to conform with one-person, one-vote
principles.
JACKSON received more than 16.2
percent of the caucus vote but, because
of several state party rules, was awar-
ded roughly 7 percent of the actual
delegates.
"The primary issue here is whether
the lower court was right when it ruled
the way it did," assistant attorney
general Gary Gordon said.
But even if the appeals court does not
reallocate delegates, Ferency said, the
case could set important legal
precedents for the future.
A crucial issue is whether or not the
actions of the Democratic Party are
public business."
Ina fiery presentation, Ferency cited
the recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling
regarding sex discrimination and the
Jaycees as the primary precedent.
Ferency is a member of Jackson's
state committee, but his lawsuit has not
received financial backing from the
Jackson campaign.
also concerned about the cost of college
and that the legislature would be
"disappointed" if tuition was increased
too much.
Regent Sarah Power (D-Ann Arbor)
said the yearly decision about tuition
increases was part of a larger question
on the role of the University.
"We have got to look at a long term
commitment of what we believe the
University is and what it means to the
state," she Power.

"We are grateful to the legislature and
the governor (for the increase in
funding)," said Baker. The state
legislature is planning to allocate $182.1
million to the University - a $19 million
increase over last year.
The State's appropriation provides
roughly half of the University's general
fund while tuition supplies the other
half.
"I THINK (the regents) are going to
be apprehensive about not having a
tuition increase when our needs are so
