The Democrats call for stricter gun control legislation—making it; mandatory the weapon, not only the owner, be regis- | tered. The Republican platform makes no mention of gun control legislation, but under an anticrime plank calls for mandatory jail sentences for persons convicted of crimes involving the use of firearms. Both parties support improved highways and transportation. The Republicans are form platitudes." the GOP platform states. Marked differences in the platforms are in anti - crime planks adopted by both. The democrats' plank on crime is vague and defensive. "We call to public attention the many bills in recent years sponsored by democrats and signed into law by democratic governors which show our continuing opposition to crime and its ugly consequences," the plank states.

The Republicans implicitly blame the democrats for rioting in cities and revolt on college campuses. "Peace and tranquility are threatened," the GOP platform states. "The people are horror , stricken — they are afraid." Specific GOP proposals to ! fight crime include: —The already mentioned leg[ islation requiring mandatory j jail sentences for those convict- 1 ed of crimes involving the use 1 of firearms. —Passage of legislation holding parents responsible in tort for damages to property caused by their minor children. —A study to determine if there is a need for additional anticrime legislation. —The establishment of a full- time, "professionally trained, nonpolitical" pardon and parole boai'd. —Stale sponsored training academies for all law enforcement officials. Both platforms contain general planks pledging to support legislation to guarantee "equal opportunity" for all. On busing, the Democrats say: "We urge continuation of the program of equal treatment for all children in Illinois with regard to transportation to and from school." The Republicans are more specific. "We oppose all discriminatory practices in our state school systems including the nonvolun­ tary busing of students," the GOP platform says.
