Cooper Seeks to Update
Senior Adults' Exemption
on Property Assessments

State Sen. Daniel S. Cooper
(D-Oak Park) has -reintroduced
legislation to update the senior
citizens property tax exemption.
Sen. Cooper stated that "In 1966
the state of Michigan granted a
$2,500 exemption to people 65
years of age and older whose in-
come was $5,000 per year or less,
and whose property assessments
were not over $10,000 state equal-
ized valuation. The higher assess-
ments and inflationary spiral oc-
curing since 1966 has nullified
the
Some recipients are
even denied all exemptions be-
cause their assessments have risen
above the $10,000 state equalized
valuation maximum. The result is
that these people are paying much
higher taxes than before they were
granted the original exemption."
"I introduced and fought for this
bill last session, but it did not
become law", Sen. Cooper said.
"I intend to reintroduce the bill
and to again fight for it. The
plight of our senior citizens de-
serves our continuous review be-
cause if we do not keep a watch-
ful - eye, on the ever-changing fi-
nancial picture as it effects senior
citizens we find that the help we
gave them has been eroded away
to nothing. This is exactly what
has happened. We owe our senior
citizens a better life than we are
giving them now."

Clemency for Colley
Is Sought by JWV

WASHINGTON (JTA)—The Jew-
ish War Veterans Tuesday issued
a statement appealing to President
Nixon to give "prompt considera-
tion of a grant of clemency" to Lt.
William P. Calley Jr., who has
been sentenced to life imprison-
ment for the mass slaying of Viet-
namese civilians.
The statement issued by JWV
National Commander Albert Sch-
lossberg read: "Lt. Calley must
not be used as symbol and con-
venient diversion to obscure the
much greater issues of morality
and responsibility inherent in the
chain of command. Nor should the
members of the court at Ft. Ben-
ning be blindly condemned for hav-
ing carried out their duty consis-
tent with high military tradition."
Commander Schlossberg contin-
ued, "We believe deeply that to
expose this extremely sensitive
and controversial matter to the ex-
tended, highly' visible appeals
proceSs must inevitably exacerbate
the tension resulting from the de-
ciiion and sentencing by the mili-
tary court at Ft. Benning."
