When the results are all in Wed-
nesday morning, three men in
Washtenaw County will be more
grateful than most for the chance
to rest from the gruelling cam-
These are the county chairmen
of the three parties, who have di-
rected the local campaign.
Speeches, radio programs, cards,
leaflets and meetings on a big
scale have marked the election
battle which is supposed to bring
out the largest vote in Wash-
tenaw County's history. All this
was the responsibility of the

The man who is local field gen-
eral for the Democratic party,
Louis G. Forsythe was a Repub-
lican, for over half his life.
HIS PARENTS had been Re-
publicans since shortly after the
civil war when the GOP was the
liberal party. He was raised in a
Republican atmosphere on a farm
near Ann 'Arbor.
"My parents had a liberal
point of view," he said. "They
were always interested in the
welfare of every class of peo-
Forsythe stuck to the Repub-
licans through the presidency of
Teddy Roosevelt who, he said, had
a liberal administration. He left
the party in 1916 to vote for!
Woodrow Wilson and returned to
the GOP in the twenties.
* * *
"I WAS disillusioned by the turn
of events and in 1932 found my-
self in sympathy with the heroic
efforts of Franklin Roosevelt to
bring order out of chaos," he said.
Since 1932, Forsythe has been
firmly in the ranks of the local
Democratic party. He retired in
1946 after 29 years as principal
of Ann Arbor High School and
had his first opportunity to take
an active part in partisan poli-
The' position of running the
Democratic Party in a Republican
area does not faze Forsythe. "Pros-
perous Washtenaw County has
been conservative] for years, but
now conditions are changing,'" he
said. "Thoughtful people are be-
ginning to realize that some atten-
tion must be paid to the more

The field commander of the
Republican forces in Washtenaw
County this year is George Wines.
Wines, a Ypsilanti attorney,
has been in the Republican Party
for over 20 years, "since I was
first able to vote."
* * *
WINES WAS BORN in Detroit
and came to Ypsilanti in 1931. In
1932 he was president of the Young
Pepublicans Club in Ypsi.
Wines has followed the GOP
because, "I feel that the Repub-
licans have consistently followed
the American doctrine of Free-
dom. This includes freedom from
superficial regulations and regi-
mentation by government."
Wines said that the Republicans
had stayed away from bureaucracy
and all foreign ideologies, includ-
* * *
FREEDOM is our most vital
heritage and it must be protected,
Wines added, in giving his reasons
for his attachment to the Re-
This year's campaign by the
Washtenaw Republicans was char-
acterized as "about the same as
in previous years," by Wines.
"I can tell more about it after
the election is over," he said.
Bret Miller has had by far the
toughest job of any of the County
He set up from scratch the ma-
chinery for the Wallace Progres-
sives in Washtenaw County.
* * *
MILLER supervised the setting
up of committees and the circu-
lation of petitions in the spring
to get the Progressives on the
Since then the local progres-
sives have waged a full scale
campaign that Miller predicts
will get 10,000 votes for Wallace.
Miller, like Forsythe, spent the
early part of his politiical career
in the Republican Party, on the
State Central Committee in Cali-
fornia. He went over to the Demo-
crats when Roosevelt was elected
and then, after FDR's death saw
that that party was, "slowly but
surely destroying all that he
(FDR) and his supporters had
MILLER DID not like Truman's
"negative attitude on labor and
civil rights, his weak support of
price control and housing" and
his "road-to-war program."
We were ready for Henry Wal-
lace when he began his cam-
paign to get representation for
the common man and carry out
Roosevelt's program, Miller said.
Miller received his BA from
Lincoln University of Missouri and
did graduate work at the Uni-
He summed up his philosophy
saying that if the Progressives
never elect a candidate, they have
accomplished their purpose, of
changing the thinking of the peo-
ple from war to peace.
