Providence, Rhode Island Mayor Vincent "Buddy" Cianci, who
according to articles in New Times magazine and the Providence
Journal-Bulletin was accused of
raping a woman at gunpoint
while attending law school in
Wisconsin, won the Republican
mayoral primary in Providence
last Tuesday with 96.6 per sent of
the vote. The newspaper stories y
and magazine articles were '
published this summer.
According to New Times Cianci
paid the alleged victim $3,000 for
her silence after the woman's
father pressed charges some 18
years ago. Cianci denied the o
charged vehemently and said he
will file law suits against both
publications. Neither New Times
nor the Journal-Bulletin have
heard from Cianci's attorneys.
Observers say they believe the
charges in the newspapers have

Handicapped bus plan draws flak
By GARY GERESY
Officials for two area transit authori-
ties have voiced strong objections to a
plan recently announced by Governor
William Milliken that would require all
buses be modified for handicapped
At a Michigan Department of
Transportation public hearing held
September 11, spokespersons for the
Ann Arbor Transportation Authority
(AATA) and the Southease Michigan
Transit Authority (SEMTA( argued
against the governor's plan, which
bears a $1 billion price tag.
LARRY SALCI, General Manager of
SEMTA, said SEMTA's main objection
to the proposal lies in making mass
transit sufficiently available to the
handicapped. A person confined to a
wheel chair, he said, would not be able
to move about in even a few inches of
"We are not against the
handicapped," Salci continued. "We
just feel that a second system should
complement (line buses."
An example of such a secondary
system is AATA's Dial-a-Ride
program, which provides door-to-door
mini-bus service for the handicapped.
AT THE HEARING in Lansing, Ann
Arbor transit officials said they
opposed Milliken's proposal.
IN his testimony, Salci alsq hinted
that the plan was merely a vote-getting
move by Milliken. "I don't think it was
a political move by the governor," Salci
said, "but in November of 1976 the
governor vetoed a bill that would have
allowed us to purchase some new buses.
We had to wait until last August before
we could purchase them,," he said.
State regulations ushered in by
Milliken's plan would equip each bus
with a hydraulic lift, and would provide
a single accommodation per bus for
persons in wheelchairs.
Les Sinclair, a representative from
the governor's office, also spoke at the
hearing. He told transportation officials
that cities would not be able to afford
the cost of equipping buses for the
handicapped. Sinclair requested
additional state funds to help the cities
