5,000 years to find out what
they wanted and needed, and
to demand these things?"
Mrs. Greenwald asked. If we
don't redefine our own role-
models, someone else will do
it, as they did 5,000 years
ago."
The ERA failed to pass be-
cause of women's political
unsophistication. "Women
have been isolated by the
walls of their home and the
walls of stereotype," she said.
"Together, a statement can
be made."
Audience reaction to the
Greenwald talks was mixed.
"I was a little disappointed
in the speech," said June
Egrin of West Bloomfield.
"She didn't say anything that
hadn't been said before."
Daughter, Marni Egrin
agreed. "No strong paints
were made. There was just a
summarization from past to
present."
Adrienne Mendelson, visit-
ing from a "suburb of Wash-
ington," said that "I'd like to
see more forums like this.
ERA and like issues seem to
have gone underground."
Anne Kuffler of Bloomfield
Hills said that the "key
phrase — redefining reality
through language — was one
of the most important keys to
the future of feminism.
"Through this new definition,
Ms. Greenwald pointed out
that we can change reality."
Ms. Greenwald's lecture
was third in a series of four
for Birmingham Temple's
"Symposium 1987," titled
"Land of Liberty — Celebra-
tion or Vigilance."

WEST BLOOMFIELD PUBLIC SAFETY MILLAGE

It's YOUR Life . . . . YOUR Property . . . . that's at stake!! VOTE YES!

Fact:

-

-

Population increases are worsening our shortage of police.

Our current 47,000 population is up 300% since 1960, and is projected to
reach 55,00 by 1990.

To meet FBI standards for our present population, we should have 66
sworn police officers. Today we have 36, including the chief.

Each 1000 increase in population requires 1 more police officer and 1
more firefighter, and adds about 300 new homes. Unfortunately, 300 new
homes generate only half the amount of revenue needed to pay and to
equip this officer and this firefighter. Commercial growth is not able to
make up the difference.

Fact: Headquarters and communication equipment need replacement.

- - Police headquarters, in the basement of Township Hall, do not have rooms
for a detention cell, separate locker facilities for female officers, nor a
squad room where department meetings can be held.

Barbara Levin

The Metropolitan Detroit
Chapter of WAND, Women's
Action for Nuclear Disarma-
ment, will present Barbara
Levin, of the Center for De-
fense Information, Washing-
ton, D.C., who will speak on
"Star Wars: Vision and
Reality". The event will take
place at 8 p.m., Nov. 18 at
the Southfield Civic Center.
Levin is director of the
Women's Agenda CDI, which
provides a medium for the
expression of women's views
on the military and other as-
pects of national security.
She was active in the Con-
gressional Wives' Peace
Links. She also was an attor-
ney for the United States De-
partment of the Interior.
There is a charge. For in-
formation, call WAND, 851-
0984.

Windsor Women
Discuss Terrorism

The Women's Division,
United Jewish Appeal of
Windsor, will host a program
on terrorism at 7:30 p.m. at
the Windsor Jewish Commu-
nity Centre, 1641 Ouellette
Ave.
Guest Speakers will be Dr.
Emanuel Tanay, a forensic
psychiatrist, and Avi Gil,
press and information attache
at the Israel Embassy in Ot-
tawa.
There will be no charge or
solicitation of funds for this
program. The public is in-
vited. Refreshments will be
served.
For information, contact
Arlene Potashner, assistant
to the executive director,
(519) 973-1772.

- - Police telephone equipment is increasingly obsolete, and cannot handle
emergency needs of 47,000 people.

Fact: 134 subdivisions, plus condominiums and apartments, and 230 miles of

roads deserve more surveillance than can be provided by, the current av-
erage of five (5) officers on patrol at any one time.

- - Deterrence to vandalism and other crimes, unsafe driving, and backup
support require more police presence than can now be provided.

- - One youth officer from the police department serves 14 schools within the
district. There should be at least two youth' officers.

Fact: Our fire department needs additional EMS equipment and manpower, plus

replacement of a 34 (thirty-four) year old fire engine.

- - A third EMS unit is needed. There has been a 71% increase in EMS runs
since the program began in 1978 with two (2) units.

- - Our newest fire engine is 10 years old. Our oldest - a 1952 Model - is due
for replacement by a modern unit.

SOLUTIONS:

Construct an adequate police headquarters at the Civic Center site.
Replace outdated communications equipment. Computerize fire de-
partment records. Add 12 police officers and one EMS unit (including
12 people to staff it 24 hours a day). Purchase a new fire engine.

All of this will reduce response time and provide better police and fire pro-
tection for West Bloomfield residents.

BUT IT CANNOT HAPPEN WITHOUT YOUR VOTE!

HELP US TO HELP YOU!!!

Vote YES on November 4 to Proposition No. 1 (#213 ON YOUR BALLOT).
