Sundstrom Gives
Vote to GOP's
Majority Now Is Able
To Re-Disti'ict Detroit
LANSING, Jan. 30..-(/P)- Rep,
Charles F. Sundstrom. Michigan
Democrat, aligned himself with the
Republican majority in the House
today on the issue of proposing, a
constitutional amendment to divide
Detroit into representative districts.
Sundstrom said he would give the
Republicans the vote they need to
pass the joint resolution proposing
the amendment. Previously Demo-
cratic House leadership had an-
nounced all Democrats in that cham-
ber would vote against the measure,'
leaving the GOP forces with 66 votes,
one short of the two-thirds margin
needed for adoption.
Republicans are plugging for the
plan, because they say some Detroit
Republican representatives could be
elected from districts, while elections
by the city electorate at large regu-
larly choose solidly Democratic
House delegations.
