Escanaba Daily Press (Newspaper) - September 1, 1984, Escanaba, Michigan A a the daily press Escanaba saturday sept. 1,1984 opinion Robert b. Gregg publisher general manager Peggy m Bryson Thomas j Dolour Leonard r Boudreau Mono gig editor advertising manager production manager Connie i Ettenhofer Dennis g Bowen Barney Noult accounting manager circulation Monomer press manager the daily press 600 Ludington St. Do the bears slide in the buckwheat Escanaba i 49829 parties politics who s in charge the recent Michigan democratic party convention in Detroit was a Sharp reminder of the party a ties to the United Auto workers Union which has in recent years contributed so much support to the party. At the convention word went out from Sam Fishman the Al Cio state president that two democratic incumbent members of University boards should not be re nominated because of expressions on unionism. Gerald Dunn a University of Michigan Regent for 16 years had fallen from Solidarity House Grace because of his position on some labor sensitive issues As a lobbyist. The convention vote gave Dunn 989 to 2,164 for Law backed candidate Marjorie Lansing a political science professor from Eastern Michigan University. Dunn after defeat said a to be thrown aside after 16 years of faithful service to the labor movement and the democratic party for no reason other than my Job Isnit justifiable in my the other target Blanche Martin a Michigan state University trustee was targeted for her Independent views and withdrew. The Law Choice was handily nominated. Martin said a it seems As though there Are some elements that wanted to be in control of the mus Board. She indicated that governor James Blanchard who is an mus alumnus and the Law were the critics of her record who cause her ouster. Charles Vincent favored by the governor an associate Dean of admissions at Wayne state University and june Kretzschmer a hardware store operator in the states thumb area were endorsed by the labor caucus and nominated. Blanchard did not single out Martin but said that the mus Board had a a history of creating Zolton Ferency now an mus professor of political science and longtime chairman of Michigan a democratic party said of the mus fight a a it a purely political. Ifs like the Law controlling the party. They done to make any Bones about it they want the strings so they can pull them when they want to. A the mane vering is not new nor strange in Michigan politics nor government with its Strong labor info or Itrah Rencer fhe function of politics is to control government and the Law in its present Outlook considers the states universities part of its government. Meanwhile Michigan a republicans have been putting heavy accent on candidates for the state supreme court which has for some years had a democratic majority which shows up in politics related judgments. Since so Many political decisions wind up in the supreme court for interpretation the republicans thought it was time to try harder to capture More court seats. Michigan a supreme court justices Are nominated in party conventions and then run without party Label in a Wacky system of election. Nominating University boards in party conventions leaves much to be desired in a quest of politically uncommitted regents but party Aid is near vital to the process. The question w then becomes who owns the party letters Schoolcraft s fair was great editor i am writing this via your column to the people of Schoolcraft county. As i sit Here to write this letter the Hustle and Bustle of the 1984 fair is beginning to wind Down and the doors will soon close with that it is again time for me to sit Back and reflect Back on All the people who had such a big part in making this years county fair such a Success i guess the first people on my list Are All of my staff from the Michigan youth corps they All cooperated fully and i will always be grateful to Denny fierce and Mark Petrich w to supervised All the workers who were Tom Burge Julie Whitcomb. David Flemming Amy Heinze Tim Mckeaver. Karen Smith. Shelli Gould Frank Damron. Michael Joslin Amanda Leech Tammy Price Rick and Lisa Siddall. Sean Lavance and Carol Schwartz a special thanks to Steve Annelin and Walt Schramm for keeping the buildings and grounds ready for morning and also secure All night and then there is the office girls Julie Hazen and Becky chartier who kept me on schedule and kept the office in such order. The above 20 some people really made this years fair what it was with the improvements to the building and grounds like the Concrete addition and the office Many hours were put into All of their work. And i think the people of Schoolcraft county will join me in saying thank you All next we have All the people who helped in so Many countless ways to run the fair to the girls w to registered the Crew who worked on the books until 3 Friday morning All the Gate tenders the people involved with the Queens contest Susan. Marie Jack Dallas a Riding up a hotel elevator the other afternoon w in some Louisiana delegates to the Republican convention. I was suddenly jolted out of the High Rise present into the grass roots past by a political boast i had t heard in 30 years. A a we re sure Gonna show Ole Walter Mondale and Gem where the Bear Slid in the buckwheat a Florid faced Man chortled and immediately earned a chorus of a you betcha a Quot from his cronies. The doors opened at the next floor and All disappeared Down the corridor before i had a Chance to inquire exactly where the Bear did slide in the buckwheat. And Why it is one of these deep Bayou Good old boy expressions that i never have been Able to translate or comprehend the first time i heard it was in 1952 at a political rally in Bastrop. La. Where gov. Earl Long who succeed himself was campaigning in behalf of his Choice judge Carlos Spaht against an unknown Independent named Robert and the judges go to All of the p i thank you All thanks people who provide All the entertainment the air band the senior citizens band the break dancers to Tiffany amp company for their performances. To the 4 la performing arts troupe and the Tea couples thanks you were All great thanks also go out to All the sponsors merchants and individuals who Hospital auxiliary says it with Flowers editor we wish to express our sincere thanks to the Indian Lake Golf and country club for the use of their Fine facility for the Schoolcraft memorial Hospital auxiliary s annual Flower show. The advisor Pioneer Tribune Escanaba daily press the action paper and Tiu radio for the publicity they gave us. Al Hepker and Ellen a Hugh Multi associate f. Kennon. A a we re Gonna show of Mckenyon Quot boasted Earl who never gave an opponent a free Media ride by pronouncing his name correctly a just where the Bear Slid in the but he never did. Because Kennon won the governors office handily. Politicians Arentt the Only ones who use colourful obscure expressions that go right by me. My wife warned me the other Day not to drop any Cigar ashes on the new Rug or a there will be w is on the i presumed she meant wigs and not whigs but even she Wasny to sure. It bras a threat she had heard growing up in Ireland and when the school mistress raised it along with her ruler there was Little time for analysis of the phrase although the intent was Clear. A nutty As a Fruitcake Quot my wife mused because not being from Louisiana she is not Given to chortling. A who is Quot i demanded. A no one. It s just another one of those expressions that never made any sense at All to me. In Ireland and England people done to put nuts in a Fruitcake. A a and they probably done to get a tight As a tick and neither do ticks. Although having seen one tight or Loose drunk or sober. At another after convention hours symposium an astute political observer whose round it happened to be remarked that a Mondale had to choose Bert Lance As his Campaign manager because beat Gary Hart in Bert was taking a Campaign after helping him via or Georgia dog in the Manger attitude toward the rest of the South. This of course is Basic i same Thi Hampsh right Quot your Basic Power politics. Ronnie did the same thing with that microphone in new Power i thing with that Micro i Hampshire. Its your Deal but my deck Ai the drinking habits of ticks Anco never on second thought a one debate will be enough a in my Book a Toots Shor used to say a politicians who done to speak the language of the people Don t get in his Book what Book did he Ever write or read for that matter the Crum bum could barely write a postcard. Still when it came to building a great Martini he never took a dog in the Manger attitude. A hair of the dog Quot he called it. In the language of the people. In history by the associated press today is saturday sept. I the 245th Day of 1984. There Are 121 Days left in the year. Today a highlight in history one year ago on sept.

In 1976, Ohio congressman Wayne Hays resigned in the Wake of a sex scandal involving Secretary Elizabeth Ray. The Virtues of being alone by myself we re All torn Between the desire for privacy and the fear of loneliness. We All want to be part of the crowd one minute and by ourselves the next. I have wended my hot weary Way Back from the Republican convention in crowded Dallas to the Cool peaceful quiet of my woodworking shop set in the feet from our vacation Home. W oods too today it that i will see sponsored ads in newspapers and radios. A very special thanks to Atiq the Escanaba daily press the Manistique Pioneer Tribune and the advisor for All of their news coverage and stories ads pictures Etc. Thanks Are also in order to the people who provided services to the fair such As the Schoolcraft county Dpi the City of Manistique.

I am sure that Schoolcraft county residents will join in me in giving them a standing ovation thanks to allow you thanks to All of the superintendents who made my work somewhat easier it would and will be virtually impossible to list All of the people who had a part in the county fair but i do know who they All were. And i will thank All of you w Hen i see you in person. One More special thank you to All of my family friends and co worders who have helped in so Many ways. To everyone thank you All so much and keep warm and cozy throughout the Winter months and i will see you All at the 1985 Schoolcraft county fair god bless and thank you. Roger i l in fair manager Manistique is unlikely anyone at All Between breakfast and late afternoon when i shake the sawdust out of my hair and go Dow n to the House for a Cool drink and the evening news. A week ago i wait to get to Dallas where the action was. Yesterday. I went to considerable trouble and some expense to move my airline reservation up by just two hours i stand the thought of one More person asking me How i liked Dallas. A week ago i anticipated the warmth of Friendship yesterday i yearned for the Chilly silence of Solitude. At the convention i had enjoyed a thousand handshakes a thousand unfinished snippets of conversation on several dozen social occasions but now i w ish to be alone with myself perhaps to finish in my mind those conversations Andy Rooney Chicago Tribune company Syndicate. Perhaps completes to put them out of my mind completely. The great virtue of being alone is that your mind can go its own Way. It Isnit forced to think along the lines of a conversation you did no to Start and the contents of which Are of no interest to you. It is amazing How the same brain that juggles words and ideas while fencing w Ith friends in a crowded room can turn its Power to figuring the Angle of a Cut in a piece of Cherry Wood that will make the Sid piece of a drawer fit precisely into the dovetailed front. The conversion from convention reporter and part time Well known person did no to take Long once i got into my old Khaki pants. These hands with which i hit the keys already have bits of Wood chips stuck to the hairs on the Back of them. I Shook out my shirt before i sat Down at my typewriter because i did no to want to get sawdust Down in the cracks Between the keys. But i am alone now and after that hectic week in Dallas i treasure these moments of blessed anonymity. I love being alone. I done to feel the need for anyone. I know it wont last though. Dangle an event in los Angeles in Florida or in Seattle in my face again next week next month or next year and ill endure the standing in lines the crowded transportation the inconvenience noise and Bustle to get there. There does no to seem to be any Happy medium Between too Many people in our lives and too few. We look Forward to our children coming Home for a visit. They come with children of their own and it soon gets to be a crowd rubbing against each other until there a the irritation generated by friction. They re ready to go we re ready for them to leave. I Admire the people who done to feel any need to go where the action is and who done to go to the parties where the crowds Are. At the democratic convention a Friend of mine had a handful of party invitations but swapped them with someone for a Book the other person had. He wanted the Book and did t care about the parties. I Admire that. Charles Kuralt is my idea of a Superior person. I Admire people who done to feel the need to see friends on saturday night or even to mingle with the crowd in the line at the local movie. I associate the desire for privacy with intellect. The people i know who genuinely done to want to go to a party Are my smartest friends. We Are naturally gregarious creatures and its the Superior people who Are so self contained Over Long periods As to not need the inconsequential companionship that goes with a party or a night out. We All know a few. They re either super human beings or they re a Little strange. We need each other and we need to get away from each other. We need proximity and distance conversation and silence. We almost always get More of each than we want at any one time. Reagan masters the presidential role the political scientists have one Way of talking about it. They explain i think accurately within its limits that the president of the United states has two roles which Are somewhat contradictory. On the one hand he has to be a Tough political operator the head of his party a Man who understands w to the mayor of Des Moines is and what that Means he need not know the name of that mayor himself but he understands its importance and he has people under him who know the nuts and bolts. But the president cannot be perceived As a political nuts and bolts Man. As the political scientists explain it the president is a kind of priest King of american society. He symbolizes and gives expression to the Core beliefs of our culture during this Century As i read the academic analysis the two presidents who until now. Most effectively handled the two roles were Franklin Roosevelt and Dwight Eisenhower. Both were Tough politicians nuts and bolts men far beyond the Public perception and both concealed to finer political Side from the Public View both men could be cruel and vindictive politically but they let other people carry out the executions Jeffery Hart King features Syndicate embed rican Tity what you see on television is in this president seems to Emo a widespread idea of the american id it a in and articulated the great unifying themes. Franklin Roosevelt obviously dying won a fourth term and Dwight Eisenhower certainly would have won a third term if the Constitution had permitted it. Ronald Reagan is now 30 Points ahead in Texas a key state and to Points ahead in new York a democratic bastion the people in the White House feel that the greatest threat to Reagan a re election is not Mondale or Ferraro but complacency. The academic analysis of the two presidential roles tells us much about this but not All of it. Important ways what there is. I myself it have known Reagan since 1968, when i worked in his initial run for the presidency and the truth is that he is a very Nice Man he is Quick Bright witty and this Side of him May have been immortalized in american consciousness at the time of the attempted assassination a Honey i forgot to Duck a he said to Nancy recalling Jack Dempsey after losing a fight to Gene Tunney within inches of death and bleeding internally Reagan convulsed his nurses by saying a a in a like to do this scene Over beginning with the that kind of thing Sticks in the mind and it somehow comes through when he Speaks on television but there is More to it than that. Reagan has been utterly consistent since he first burst on the National consciousness in 1964 with a memorable speech in behalf of Coldwater and then when he won the California governorship. From Pat Brown by a million votes. In those Days his message of Pride and patriotism and inae penance challenged the spirit of the 1960s. But the Reagan message of his earlier political Days is the spirit of America in the 1980s. The tide has turned and Reagan is its articulator or As they say communicator. This National tide even had the democratic convention in san Francisco talking endlessly about a a family and waving american flags. But in addition to working with the of patriotic and even feisty spirit of the Ime Reagan adds a touch of poetry to our political life. It is possible that Walter Mondale does not dare utter a Churchman of phrase. Richard Nixon did no to either Eeling that his image of a a competence did not dare risk the ringing and poetic phrase. When i was writing speeches for Dixon in the 1968 Campaign i noticed that he always broke Down the poetic phrase into More prosy and Nixon Ian language. But Reagan can soar rhetorically because he really does believe that America is that City on a Hill the last Best Hope of Mankind the Citadel of personal Freedom. Reagan is not Only eloquent but right. And that is Why he is so far ahead today in these polls and Why he joins Roosevelt and Eisenhower As a master of the american presidency.
