HEW announces grants
for U library, IPPS

City attorney


Two separate grants which will aid
the University's library system and the
Institute of Public PolicyStudies (P-
PS) were announced yesterday by the
U.S. Department of Health, Education,;
and Welfare (HEW).
The first is a grant of $3,855 to the
University Library for the purchase of
additional books, periodicals, and
documents. It was awarded under the
College Library Resources Title II-A
Program. The second grant, a $45,00
allotment was awarded to the IPPS to
support graduate studies in public ser-
THE IPPS grant is divided into two
areas: institutional awards and
fellowship awards. The University will
use the institutional awards to design
graduate courses in public policy and
service, as well as to provide for travel
and salaries of some IPPS faculty
members. The fellowship awards have
been given to five graduate students to
cover the costs of 12 months of study -
This is the fourth year that the
University has received this grant, but
because of the growing number of in-
stitutions participating in the program,
the amount which has been allocated is
$20,000 less than that of last year.
"We're disappointed that we're get-
ting less this year, but we expected it to
happen," said Jack Walker, Director of
IPPS. "But because of the University's
own stringent budget restrictions, this
sum is still very important."

THE UNIVERSITY is one of 74
colleges and universities around the
country who will receive the public ser-
vice grant. The money is provided by
the Education for the Public Service
Program, through which a total of $4
million is being awarded in 1978.
Walker said that the grant is in-
strumental in making the University's
public service program one of the best
in the country. "When this grant
program first started four years ago,
this University was the only one in the
country receiving funds," he said. "I'd
say we're (IPPS) successful, if you use
student placement as a measure.
All of our students get placed, and
many have several offers from a num-
ber of agencies."
THE LIBRARY grant is part of a $10
million program initiated by the HEW
to help make a greater number of
resources available to post-secondary
students. The office of the Director of
the University Library said that 50 per
cent of this grant will be used to pur-
chase materials concerning minorities
and urban development, and the
remaining funds will be allocated for
more general materials. .
For the first time in 12 years, the
library grants also are going to public
and private nonprofit agencies which
make resources available to college
and university students. The Center for
Creative Studies and the Cranbrook
Academy of Art are the only two in-
stitutions in the Detroit area which
have received such funds.

City Attorney Bruce Laidlaw said
yesterday that no conflict of interest
was involved in City Council's
resolution Monday night to approve the
issuance of a $3.1 million bond to build a
parking structure behind Ann Arbor
Bank and Trust Co.'s Liberty Street
Laidlaw was responding to an inquiry
from Councilman Earl Greene (D-
Second Ward) about the bank's em-
ployment of Councilmen Clifford
Sheldon (R-Third Ward) and David
Fisher (F-Fourth Ward.
SHELDON IS a commercial loan of-
ficer and Fisher is a certified public ac-
countant for the bank. Both said
Tuesday that they, did not feel a conflict
was involved with their votes.
The contract which Council voted on
was between the city and the local
building authority. The city must pur-
chase some land from the bank if it
carries out its present plan,
Laidlaw said he did not find a conflict
of interest in the resolution to approve
the bonding for two reasons:
* Ann Arbor Bank is not a party to
the contract approved, and;
" Under the state's conflict of in-
terest statute, affiliation with public
bodies is exempted.
Laidlaw said he would advise Council
not to accept the votes of Sheldon and
Fisher if a vote to purchase the land
from the bank comes before Council.
The bonding proposal was sent to the
Municipal Finance Commission in Lan-
sing yesterday for consideration of Ann
Arbor's financial capability in handling
the bond.
Mayor Louis Belcher said the com-
mission will be looking at the revenue
generated by the local parking system
and the city's bond debt ceiling. He ad-

went on to say that if a vote on p4
chasing the land from the bank com
up, "I wouldn't allow them (Sheld
and Fisher) to vote.'"
LAIDLAW SAID consideration of t
conflict was "messier than normal
because "we have a pretty pathetical
weak conflict of interest statute."
explained that conflict of interest wi
rigidly defined in the state's Politic
Reform Act, but because of the way
was passed, the Supreme Court thr4
out the entire law.
Laidlaw added that Ann Arbor's c'
charter defines a conflict as a contra
which would directly serve an i
dividual's financial interest, but it
superceded by state law.
Wh:ile the bonding proposal is beif
considered in Lansing, Belcher said
will try to iron out the details of U

the bank and private developers w,

ture. According to Belcher, the ba,
negotiations should take about 30 da
and the bond should be acted on in
next 45 days.
The lack of housing or another

Belcher acknowledged that he will ha

approve the plan that eventually cor

At least three Democrats will have

approve the plan, if a purchase frc

How would Freud
relate to Cinci?
Cold.Yet warming.
Hearty, full-bodied flavor. Yet smooth and easy going down.
And, Cinci Cream develops a big head on contact.
Conflict. Conflict. Trauma. Trauma. Freud's diagnosis?
We think he would have said, "It's too good to gulp:" And you will,
too. In the final analysis.

How hiring you can cost somebody $45,300
93,000,000 Americans now hold jobs. But that won't mean
much when you look for a job, yourself. You'll have tough
competition. You're among 17,000,000 more Americans
looking for work over the next ten years. That's how many
new jobs America must create, including yours.
It's going to cost a lot of money. Before you get a dime of
salary, whoever hires you will have to buy tools, office
space, factory equipment and buildings-the things it takes
to let you do your job. The average cost to companies is now
$45,300 for each joIb.
We don't mean you can't be hired until your employer
finds exactly $45,300. You might walk into an existing job.
But don't count on it. Not with 17,000,(X)0 competitors.
Some companies can hire you for less than $45,300. But
others-heavy industry, for instance-need much more, At
Armco, our cost is now $57,520 a job.
That money must come from whatever a company has
left over after expenses. In other words, from
profits. A company might borrow against
future profits to make you a job. But still,
profits pay for jobs because that's the
only source companies have.
If you asked your friends how much the
average U.S. company clears in profits on
each dollar of sales, chances are many of
them would guess 25 or more. The truth
is 5C or less. That's not much to put to
work to make new jobs.

Plain talk about PROFITS
Over our company's 78-year history, Armco has averaged
5C profit on each dollar of sales. We pay out part of our
earnings immediately in dividends to Armco's 100,000share-
holders. So out of each nickel, we have perhaps 3 left to
invest in new jobs.
Building $57,520 jobs-3C at a time-is tough. At this rate,
we must sell another $1,918,000 worth of products and ser-
vices to clear enough money for a single new job. That's why
better profits are important. They make more jobs. Even
Government jobs. The Government's money comes from
taxes on all of us who work.
Next time some know-it-all. sneers at business, ask him
what he'd do without it. He's sneering at his own job
chances, and yours.

a line. We'd like your plain talk. For telling
us your thoughts, we'llsend you more informa-
tion on issues affecting jobs. Plus Armco's
