  • Description

    Berkeley California - mother of things radical has plenty of whites who would enjoy having a black congressman.

    The question here is whether their black candidate may be too radical....even for Berkeley.

    Ron Dellums is a 34-year old Social Worker, with two years' service on the Berkeley City Council with the help of radical elements of the Berkeley campus of the University of California, and the impact of the Cambodia affair he won a stunning upset victory in the Democratic primary last spring, over the liberal white incumbent.

    But his election campaign was uninspired until vice president Agnew last week called him an extremist...out-and-out radical Black Panther supporter.

    Dellum's crusading attitude, since the primary, has lost him some of his white liberal support...and so has his stand against aid to Israel.

    ...But, as the Democratic candidate in Berkeley and Oakland he is considered pretty hard to beat.
