POTHOLES, DEVELOPMENT OFTE
C ouncil sees

By JOHN GOYER
When the clerk calls the roll during
i meeting of Ann Arbor's City Council,
,he votes are often split along party
ines, with the seven Republicans and
our Democrats mounting on opposite
;ides of the issue.
In such a climate, mundane issues
ecome controversial. In fact, Council
ill often debate for more than two
ours about such burning issues as
hether city voters will use computer
abulated punch card ballots in the next
ity election or stick with the old voting
achines.
SOME ISSUES turn up again year af-
er year, while others simply succumb
o marathon discussions one or two
imes and are never brought up again.
ome of the issues likely to be raised
uring the fall are:
Zoning and planning. Deciding
hat kind of edifices can be built on
ertain parcels of land is probably the
ost basic power a city government
etains. Council must approve all
.oning changes and new building plans.
In Ann Arbor, planning decisions are
ften occasions for protest from city
esidents who believe a construction
roject may be more harmful than
roductive.
At last count, there were 22 neigh-
orhood groups in Ann Arbor, formed of
esidents concerned about maintaining
he amount of undeveloped space in the

Finding a career
affles many studen

By VICKI HENDERSON
Every year many students, including
niors and seniors, begin the year
ithout having a specific career in
nind for their post-collegiate years. In
act, many go on to graduate with ex-
:ellent grade point averages and still
iave no idea of what they want to do for
iliving.
According to Career Planning and
'lacement counselor Lillian Harrison,
nost students entering college are un-
iertain as to their future goals. Some
rim for career goals that sound ap-
>ealing, but about which they know lit-
le, she said.
Barbara Weinstein, an LSA coun-
elor, said there is "A great moving
rom field to field," among college
students. According to Harrison, a
rajority of students change their
majors during their four-year Univer-
sity stints. Those who do so, Weinstein
adds, are "later most satisfied with
their careers."
Many students who have certain
cademic interests "have a hard time
ranslating" those interests into
areers, according to Weinstein. She
aid students sometimes go to college
s a "lack of desirable alternatives," or
ecause of parental pressure.
John Krienke of the Counseling Cen-
er said studies on counseling have
ecommended more vocational coun-
eling. High schools, he said, don't
rovide enough funds for career
education and counseling.
KRIENKE SAID one problem is that
tudents are indoctrinated with the idea

that "if they do well in school
doing all they can to set themse
life." As a result "students com
prepared," he said.
Many students take a
Campbell Survey before the
college. The survey is a questi
used to indicate interest
capabilities of students. But, H
said, this is only "one tool" tha
used in helping students sele
careers. It gives students some
what they would like to do, but it
offer definite answers, she said.
The Strong-Campbell Surve

with individual counseling. "It
