Senate passes tuition,
WANT REGENT ERA SUPPOR T:
From Wire Service Reports'
The Senate, voting on a series of.
amendments to the Finance Commit-
tee's $23 billion tax-cut bill, yesterday
approved a proposal to give parents of
college students a tuition tax credit.
In a flurry of election year activity,
the Senate also voted in favor of Sen.
Edward Kennedy's (D-Mass.), amen-
dment to give middle-income
Americans an additional $3.7 billion tax
break, but turned down a GOP plan for
a tremendous $120 billion, across-the-
THE CREDIT, which would start at
$100 per student this year and rise to
$250 in 1980 and 1981, is awaiting final
approval in the House and Senate as a
separate bill. Carter is said to be likely
to veto that bill.
But backers reason he would be much
more reluctant to veto the big tax-cut
bill just to kill the tuition tax credit.
The heavily Democratic Senate
began the day's voting by soundly
defeating 60-36 the Republican Kemp-
Roth proposal, which would reduce in-
dividual income tax rates by an
average of 33 per cent over the next
SENATOR Robert Griffin (R-Mi.), a
strong supporter of the Kemp-Roth,
plan, voted in the minority yesterday.
While campaigning in Ann Arbor
yesterday, Griffin's opponent in the
November Senate race, Democrat Carl
Levin, called Kemp-Roth "unfair,"
because it "bulges at both ends," giving
no relief to middle income wage ear-
ners, and would prove "inflationary."
Also yesterday, the full Senate voted
53-37 to table a bipartisan tax indexing
amendment co-sponsored by Griffin to
the Revenue Act of 1978, killing it for
the session. Tax indexing would require
automatic adjustment of tax brackets
to allow for cost-of-living increases,
cutting tax rates by the same percen-
tage as inflation increases.
In a surprise move, the Senate ap-
proved 52-43 the amendment by Ken-
nedy and Dale Bumpers (D-Ark.) that
increases the total tax cut from the
Finance Committee's recommended
$22.9 billion to $26.7 billion. This in-
cludes $3.8 billion which was added to
the committee's proposed $16 billion in
tax cuts for individuals.
NINETY-FIVE per cent of the ad-
ditional reductions would go to those
with incomes under $30,000 a year. The
amendment would mean an extra $130
tax cut for a typical four-member
family with income of $20,000; it would
give only $9 more to a single person at'
that income level.
Senator Russell Long, (D-La.),
chairman of the Senate Finance Com-
mittee, opposed all three amendments
to the bill, which Republicans said
would help the rich and poor but "shor-
tchanges working America."
Congressional observers predicted
Long would fight to eliminate the two
approved amendments when a con-
ference committee tries to work out dif-
ferences between the Senate and House
versions of the legislation.
Long had said Carter would undoub-
tedly veto the GOP plan and the Ken-
nedy amendment "would bust the
budget." He had said he favors a,
college tuition tax credit but expressed
"deep fear" the tax bill might be vetoed
because of it.
CFW weeks to achieve equalit
By HOWARD WITT
The days of struggle against the more
obvious, identifiable signs of sex
discrimination have passed since the
Commission for Women (CFW) was
founded in 1971, and its members have
now turned to "the real business" of
equality between men and wonen.
"We are now at the more subtle level
of changing attitudes and behavior
towards women," said Bernadette
Malinoski, co-chairwoman of CFW.
"NOW THAT the numbers, goals, and
timetables (for the creation of affir-
mative action programs) have been
dealt with to the satisfaction of the
Department of Labor and HEW
(Department of Health, Education and
Welfare), we hope the real business of
developing to the fullest extent the
potential of women and minorities will
begin in earnest," Malinoski continued.
Created as a grassroots organization
seven years ago, CFW has been active
as a watchdog group trying to protect
the rights of women. Members are
drawn from all interest areas of the
University, including students, faculty,
clerical and technical staff, service and
maintenance staff, and professional
and administrative workers. Several
positions on the CFW board are still
Among its many accomplishments,
CFW has maintained publication of the
"Women's Information Network
Bulletin," sponsored a Women's
Career Fair, and worked successfully
for the inclusion of treatment of mater-
nity disability along with other medical
disabilities under University policy.
THE COMMISSION also advocated
open University job postings, which
allow all qualified persons an equal
chance at employment. "Open job
posting minimizes the 'fast shuffling'
which occurs when only a few people
know about available jobs, keeping
women and minorities at a disadvan-
tage," commented Malinoski.
One issue still unresolved is Univer-
sity support of the Equal Rights Amen-
dment (ERA). Last spring, CFW
proposed a resolution for consideration
at a Regents' meeting advocating a
public statement by the University in
favor of ERA.
The proposal was not discussed at the
September Regents' meeting, which
Malinoski said was fortunate because it
would probably have gotten lost amid
the concentration on President Robben
Fleming's resignation. CFW members
are hopeful that the ERA proposal will
be discussed by the Regents in the near
CFW plans to repeat its Women's
Career Fair, which last year was atten-
,ded by over 100 professional women and
600 participants. The Fair, scheduled
for March 24, 1979, will highlight job
opportunities for women.
Lila Green, creator of a new game en-
titled "Which Way ERA?" will be the
featured speaker at the November 8
meeting of. the Commission, scheduled
from 12-1:30 p.m. in Room 2549, LS1

'U' profs reproduce gene
(Continued from Page 1)
In other cases, an embryo can
receive an extra chromosome from one
of its parents. Instead of two
chromosomes for the same set of
characteristics, the embryo receives
three. This occurs through a process
known as non-disjunction.
If either translocation or non-
disjunction occurs on chromosome 21,
the result is frequently mongolism.
WHAT SCHMICKEL and Wilson suc-
ceeded in doing was to remove a
segment of a gene, reattach it to a
chromosome from a virus which
inhabits the common bacterium e. Coli,
and use the virus to reproduce the gene
This technique is the basis of recom-
binant DNA research.
While genes from-Jower, organisms
and mice have been successfully
isolated and recombined in the past,
this is the first time it has been done
with a natural human gene, although
synthetic human genes have previously
This particular gene contains the in-
formation for reproduction of cell
structures known as ribosomes, which
help manufacture proteins. It is found
on chromosome 21 and on four other
chromsosmes as well.
The gene fragment also contains por-
tions of the DNA strands which provide
for the regulation of the gene's activity.
Understanding regulatory failure could
lead to understanding of how genetic
diseases are produced, Jackson said.
Schmickel and Wilson reported their
findings at the annual meeting of the
American Society of Human Genetics
in Vancouver, British Columbia.
Rails hardly ever use flight as a
means of escape, hence making them
especially vulnerable to predators.
