DO BARS DISCRIMINA TE:

Ladies
By BETH ROSENBERG
Local bars and night clubs may have
to find alternatives to the crowd-
drawing Ladies' Nights because of a
state law which prohibits
discrimination, according to the Ann
Arbor Human Rights Department.
"We will inform all area bars and
night clubs about the violation of the
law and will assist them in setting up a
Men's Night, or eliminating the Ladies'
Night," said Claude Rowe, a complaint
investigator for the Human Rights
Department.
ROWE EXPLAINED that although
no one has complained about the prac-
tice, the department is still going to in-
vestigate the matter.
The law states, "except where per-
mitted by law, persons shall not be

1'Night i
denied the use of facilities and advan-
tages of public accommodations on the
basis of religion, race, color, age, sex,
marital status, or national origin."
Rowe said he sees no problems with
the bars changing their policies
because of positive response in the past.
LADIES' NIGHTS became popular a
few years ago as an incentive for
customers to frequent bars during the
week by offering free admission or
discounts on drinks. One bar in Ann Ar-
bor reported that business is 50 per cent
better on Ladies' Night than on othier
week nights..
Tom Gotler, manager of Don Cisco's,
611 Church, said that he has not been
contacted by the Human Rights Depar-
tment yet regarding the law. "Our at-
torneys are presently looking into the

[legal?
legalities of it (the law)," he said.
Second Chance, 516 E. Liberty, also
holds Ladies' Night on Tuesdays.
Manager Dave Rogers refused to
comment on whether or not Second
Chance will change its policy.
TOM CICCARELLI, owner of the
Spaghetti Bender, 23 N. Washington,
Ypsilanti, said that he thinks the
Human Rights Department should con-
cern itself with more important issues.
"I want to know why nothing is done
about such things as student discounts,
senior citizens discounts, 12-and-under
at the movies discounts, and credit
union discounts," he stated.
If an establishment is found guilty of
violating the law, a fine of up to $500 and
90 days in jail could result.

input to the landfill to a total of 569 tons.,
Murray said only 196 tons of that was
collected by the city, and he therefore
concluded that the city would "go

or praised b

broke" if citizens demanded as much
refuse collection as is needed.
Another concern is the fact that space
is running out at the city landfill and
more land is being sought by city of-
ficials. City Council is also considering

a machine which will shred the solid
waste, saving landfill space. The added
machinery and employees would also
greatly increase operating costs after
the initial eipenditure.
Murray tried to allay the public's
fears about the recently disclosed
burial of PBB in Ann Arbor's landfill,
by saying that only a "minute" amount
was buried there in '74 by state officials
- not enough to cause alarm. He added
that the Health Department has been
asked to check into the situation fur-
ther, and repeated that the area where
the PBB is buried is insulated with a
clay base. That area is not near the un-
derground water table or drainage,
said Murray.
ADMINISTRATIVE advances in-
clude the consolidation of the Water and
Sewer Departments into the Utilities
Department. Murray said while in the
past, two departments would dig
separate holes in which to place pipes,
now both pipes can go in the same hole.
The Department of Solid Waste was
created to reflect the emphasis City
Council wants placed on shredding and
the landfill, Murray said. He added that
the appointment of Ulysses Ford as
solid waste director has had a
significant effect on the morale of em-
ployees in the department. He said
people employed by that department
tend to be "lower income black folks
who have always had to look up to a
white man."
There are 71 less city employees now
than in 1974, and Assistant City Ad-
ministrator Patrick Kenney said last
week that the reduction in the city's
work force has saved the city about $1
million per year. Most of those reduc-
tions aredue to adjustments in the
federally-funded programs and budget
constraints, according to Kenney.

her studies on allergy-causing mold particles.
Mold studies keep

BURGE, WHO obtained her botany
PhD. from the University, is a
micologist, or mold specialist. She has
been conducting airborn allergin
studies for the past 10 years.In those
studies, she examines specific kinds of
airborn particles and the percentage of
people sensitive to airborn allergies.
Burge said that mold, pollen and in-
sects are the three main causes of air-
born allergies. But because it is easy to
catch, and recognize, and because it af-
flicts 10 per cent of the population,
pollen (or ragweed as it is commonly
called) is the most widely studied.
, Burge is one of the few in her field
who not only studies the various kinds
of molds in the air, but also studies how
the concentration varies seasonably
using a unique "volumetric sampling"
technique.
BURGE COLLECTS mold samples
from various sites which she uses in her
major product. Conducting the resear-
ch on the Kresge building roof, Burge
uses a volumetric sampling device to

THE KRESGE Building in the
medical complex is taller than the rest
of the surrounding central campus
buildings. Since there is no obstruction
between the sampler and the wind, the
sampler can be oriented to avoid tur-
bulence. When the sampler is pointed
away from the air or obstructed, it
detects a different percentage of the
particles in the atmosphere, Burge
said.
On the basis of the Kresge study,
Burge draws maps of mold in the air
which physicians can then use to
determine which of the organisms a
patient is sensitive to.
Burge's second project involves set-
ting up samples in allergy victims'
homes. She measures the levels of
mold, then recommends procedures to
lower the levels.
HER STUDIES have shown that mold
levels in homes with wet basements are
high, while air-conditioned homes seem
to "cure" high mold levels.
In summertime's outdoor air, the

peratures in which to grow.
ACCORDING TO Burge, a similar
study conducted in Wisconsin showect
humidifiers provide this heat. After
taking air samples from two hundred
homes in Ann Arbor, Burge also con:
cluded that the home humidifier is a
source of microbial contamination.
"I plan to continue my research irk
heat-loving organisms to find out how
common they are, and to look for alter-
nate sources, refrigerators, for exam
ple, that are heat exchangers," Burge
said.
With University allergy specialist,
and Professor William Solomon and
technician Jean Boise, Burge is presen-
tly running thirteen individual and
parallel mold projects.
OTHER EXPERIMENTS have in-
cluded measuring the mold levels is
University libraries, since old books
contain dust, as well as in animal bed-.
ding in animal rooms at the University;
Hospital.
The study is part of $50,000 grant
from the National Institute of Allergies,
and Infections Diseases, a subdivision
of the National Institute of Health.
