to go for our fair share and get it back. I
don't know where we're going to cut
and I really don't give a damn what
we're going to cut,"but we're going to
cut."
Tisch demonstrated considerable
skill handling questions from a largely
skeptical audience. He sometimes drif-
ted off into unrelated personal tales, in-
cluding a story about his gran-
dchildren.
One listener, Ann Arbor State
Representative Perry Bullard,
challenged Tisch, asserting that Ann
Arbor's school system would be left in a
shambles by a 50 per cent tax cut.
"I DON'T think the school districts
are as bad as they say they are," Tisch
replied. "They're going to be scrat-
ching for dough and they're going to

find it."
Bullard, a liberal Democrat, then of-
fered to debate Tisch on the tax
question.
"I won't debate you unless you have a
proposition," Tisch said. "You don't
have enough guts to put a proposal on
the ballot."
THE ASTONISHED Bullard an-
swered that he had supported tax-
reducing measures in the past, but
would not support Tisch's or any other
tax measure on the November ballot.
By the time Tisch concluded his ap-
pearance, the crowd had dwindled to
less than 15 persons. Despite the hostile
response he received, Tisch said he was
still confident that Proposal J would
pass.
"If it doesn't, my lips will be zipped
and you'll never hear from me again."

Citizens group criticizes
tax cutting ballot proposals

t.; ' 1

IT

DETROIT (UPI) - A citizen's com-
mittee yesterday criticized three ballot
proposals to limit or cut taxes as "false
promises that will only shift taxes and
put government in a strait jacket."
The group, calling itself Citizens Op-
posed to Slick Tax Schemes (COSTS),
said it will wage a publicity campaign
throughout Michigan to defeat ballot
proposals E, H and J - the so-called
Headlee, voucher and Tisch plans.
"PROPOSALS E, H, and J exploit the
genuine frustration of the taxpayers of
Michigan by making promises that will
not likely be delivered," Stanley
Winkelman, a Detroit businessman and
spokesman for the group, told repor-
ters.

"Individually and collectively, these
three proposals really are no More than
simplistic approaches to complex
problems that provide no net tax relief
for most taxpayers," he said.
"There are no simple answers,"
Winkelman said.
"These are false promises that will
only shift taxes and put the government
in a straitjacket."

Hawkins says his department has 06"
plainclothesmen regularly working the.r
stadium crowd. "If a problem arises,"
he stated, "we'll send uniformed troops
in first."
ON THE OTHER Hand, the Univer-
sity Athletic Ticket Office admits to:
circulating two plainclothes policemen-
in the crowd along the routes to the
stadium.
The University officers, who are on
loan from the Ann Arbor Police, are,
there to "observe the resale of tickets
at over and above the face value," ac-
cording to Ticket Manager Al Renfrew.
"I think last year they arrested 20 or,.
30 persons (for scalping)," he added.
ACCORDING TO one South Quad.
scalper, advertising in the opposing
team's school newspaper can result in a
big profit on football tickets for major
games. Advertising rates are low, and
prospective buyers apparently care lit-
tle about the cost of long distance phone
calls.
The Ohio State game is one example.
"They've got no sense in Ohio,
anyway," said the scalper. "A couple of
years back, I had them bidding me up
to $60 apiece."
TIMING IS important in scalping, he
added. Awareness of the AP and UPI
rankings must be maintained in looking
ahead to future games.
"If Michigan takes the big dive," the
scalper pointed out, "so will ticket
values."
"Don't get too greedy," he advised.
"Tickets for the MSU game are going .b
for $20-$25 apiece right now. If you hold .
out for more, you take the chance of
eating them (selling for less) come'-
Saturday."
