news media which have contacted
him are "amazed" that the coun-
cil would turn down the 24-story
building after "nearly every city
official" worked over a year with
Gunn and Carver.
Gunn accused council of not
working in the best interests of
Ann Arbor and unleashed a ver-
bal blast at three Democratic
members-Mrs. Burns, Dr. Edward
P. Weeks of the ThirdWard, and
Dr. Edward C. Pierce of the
In effect Gunn charged the
three with taking a stand Lgainst
high-rise buildings to create a
spring election issue.
The charge came as Gunn an-
nounced he and Carver had with-
drawn from the city's Housing
Board of Appeals a petition re-
questing variance on the prospec-
tive 24-story building's backyard
"We don't want to give the
Democrats any ammunition for
the political grist mill this spring,"
The three Democrats singled
out in Gunn's attack later issued
a statement defending themselves
against Gunn's charges that they
weren't acting in the best interests
of the city.
Weeks, Pierce and Mrs. Burns
said they understood Gunn's frus-
tration and chagrin but they did
not understand his apparent fail-
ure to grasp the rationale behind
the council's action.
They said the spirit of the or-
dinance was not "stop all high-
rise construction," but was de-
signed to "work out solutions to
problems created by high-rise
buildings before the buildings are
up and it's too late."
"Action by the council was
neither ill-advised nor hasty.
Three nationally known consul-
tants on planning, zoning and as-
sociated problems held an all-
day conference with various city
officials and said a height limita-
tion would be reasonable , and
would not hinder investment in
the lively Ann Arbor housing mar-
ket," the statement said.
The three Democrats went on
to say that Gunn "conveniently"
forgot that of the nine votes for
the ordinance, four were cast by

"He also accused the Democraits
of taking a stand against nigh-
rise buildings to create a spring
election issue. If the Democrats on
council sought to conjure up a
partisan election issue, would four'
Republicans have pitched :n to
help? We respect these Republi-
cans too much to believe they
could be as handily bamboozled as
Gunn seems to believe they have
been," the Democrats said.

properly planned could astheti-

"certain that this would not be
necessary." He said he felt in-
terpretations of the state consti-
tution requested from the attor-
ney general would be enough to
define the Board's authority if any
conflicts should arise.
Reaction to Fill's proposals have
received little opposition from the
state's college administrators as
yet. University Executive Vice-
President Marvin L. Niehuss said
he felt there was no limit to the
advice the Board could give the
governor and that they certainly
have the right to recommend in-
dividual institutions' budgets.
Michigan State University's
Vice-President for Business and
Finance Philip J. May agreed, not-
ing that perhaps the voluntary
coordination plan being developed
by the coordinating council could
be used as a model for the system
to be set up by the Board.
Fill's statements capped specu-
lation begun in mid-December
when Warren Huff, Michigan
State University trustee and chair-
man of of the Michigan Coordi-
nating Council for Public High-
er Education, said that he had in-
formally contacted several of the
Board's members about a coordi-
nating council request that "they
consider the policy of dealing with
appropriations for the 10 state-
supported colleges as a group,"
even though up to this time the
coordinating council has strongly
espoused its own plan of voluntary
coordination as opposed to the
Board's enforced coordination. -
At that time, Huff said that
the coordinating council, made up
of high administrators from the
10 schools, was "in effect, asking
the new state board to tell us to
integrate our budget requests."
There are indications that the
Board will be making up its con-
solidation procedures without ef-
fective aidpfrom the state's col-
leges. The colleges have so far
been relying on the coordinating
council's report on voluntary co-
ordination to express their feelings
on what a coordination proposal
Possibilities of using the co-
ordinating council's voluntary
plan for budget unification as a
model for the Board of Educa-
tion's mandatory plan were en-
couraged by Board member Don-
ald M. D. Thurber, a former Re-
gent of the University. Thurber
said that he was "very encourag-
ed by the coordinating council's
progress in this area" and that he
expected the Board would take a
"very interested look" at the co-
ordinating council's results.
These possibilities were denied,
however, by Central Michigan
University President Judson Faust
a member of the coordinating
council. Faust said he felt the
coordinating council has "quite a
way to go yet" before it will have
an acceptable plan for a unified
