Close races for mayor of Los Angeles and for the Wis-

a series of elections around the nation.
Mayor Samuel W. Yorty, seeking a third term in the

they overwhelmed a dozen other serious candidates.

When Ann Arbor policemen
and firemen get the-ir pay
checks, 18 per cent of the money
comes from the University.
The University is not re-
quired by law to contribute this
sum-but since the late 40's, it
has annually paid the city for
use of its police and fire depart-
ment facilities. It is, in effect,
a "voluntary" contribution -
currently adds up to $539,698
per year.
The contribution, w h i c h

Since the city is expected to
move from a property tax to an
income tax in the next few years
however, both Brinkerhoff and
City Administrator Guy Larcom
predict that the nature of the
University-city financial rela-
tionship will have to be re-
examined as soon the income
tax is instituted.
The city currently receives
about $319,300 yearly for the
operation of the police depart-
ment. $35,079 of this figure rep-
resents the total cost to the
city of policing University park-
ing facilities. Eighteen per cent

Brinkerhoff, the only way that
changes in the agreement can be
made are by mutual negotia-
tions. The percentage of the
University's contribution can-
not be raised or lowered unless
both parties agree to a mutually
acceptable figure.
But Larcom says the city
would "fight hard" if necessary
to maintain a University con-
tribution to the police and fire
budgets.

are completed, if the University

ment. However, Brinkerhoff
holds that the University is not
"completely sold" on the idea
that the Ann Arbor Police are
the sole solution to the problem
of crime on campus.
In fact, says Brinkerhoff, the
University has even considered

The proposal to disrupt war re-
search laboratories came in re-
sponse to a nation-wide call by
Rev. Ralph Abernathy, King's
successor as head of the Southern
Christian Leadership conference,
for a one-day halt in such re-
search on all University campuses.
One SDS member said 'he op-
posed use of disruptive tactics on
the memorial day because BSU
members felt "that it was their
program." He said BSU members
didn't want anything to upset it,
"but that it would be all right
if they leafletted."
However, BSU President Ron
Thompson last night said no one
from SDS had "made any over-
tures" to him concerning the pos-
sibility of a demonstration or of
the use of disruptive tactics.
In other action, SDS scheduled
a Diagrally in an attempt to gain
support for the organization's
hearing before Central Student
Judiciary (CSJ) next Wednesday.
