On Monday the Ann Arbor Transportation Authority
(AATA) will begin using a new service structure based on
expanded route service and the elimination of daytime dial-
a-ride service to the general public.
This new system is a result of a long AATA technical study
and years of often bitter controversy. The study culminated
in the Board's approval of its long term "A990 Plan" last
BOARD MEMBERS said the plan is intended to be more
cost effective and provide more complete service than the
previous dial-a-ride system.
The changes represent a more rapid transition toward
emphasis on fixed routes, but budget constraints have
prevented the total expansion of service envisioned in the
Next week is free fare week in order to "allow people to
experiment with the system without being penalized in a
costly way," according to AATA Executive Director Richard
AMONG THE CHANGES, fares will increase from 35 cen-
ts to 50 cents for the general public, and will be half price (25
cents) for elderly, handicapped, and low income passengers.
Discounts will be available through the purchase of 20 tokens
at 35 cents each, so there will be no fare increase for regular
The monthly pass, which offers unlimited rides for $10 will
be eliminated. This means an increased cost for those who
ride several times a day, according to Board members and
University lecturer Joel Samoff. But, he added, for those who
ride a few times a week, this change from monthly pass to
tokens is advantageous because tokens can be saved while a
pass runs out.
Fixed bus routes will increase from five to 10 lines, and
service will be availble from 6:10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on weekdays,
and 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday. Buses will run every 15-30
minutes. Other changes include:
" Elderly and handicapped dial-a-ride service in Ann Ar-
bor from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Previously the elderly were in-
cluded in the general public.
" General public dial-a-ride service in Ann Arbor from 7
p.m. to 10 p.m. on weeknights, and 8:15 a.m. to 6:15 p.m. on
Sundays. Previously dial-a-ride was available to the public
on weekdays and on Saturday.,
* Dial-a-ride service outside of Washtenaw County on
weekdays and on Saturday:
* One fare for all segments of the Ann Arbor-Ypsilanti
system. Previously a second fare was charged for transfer
" Certification of elderly (over 60), handicapped, and low
income passengers is required to obtain an ID card. For the
elderly this is provided through a doctor or health agency,
and for low income riders through the Department of Social
Services. Previously, a self-declaration system was used.,'
MONDAY'S CHANGES will include a slight reduction -in
the amount of service hours because of budget constraints,
according to AATA Planning Coordinator Tom Hackley.
"We have to plan the system according to the money
available," said Hackley. "The total budget hasn't in-
creased, we have no reserve to draw from, and we have in
Each year AATA is allocated a fixed amount of federal
money and it! the past a reserve accumulated because AATA
didn't use all of it, according to Hackley. However, last year
Hackley said there was a deficit and AATA used all its
reserve funds which consisted of $300,000-$400,000.
HOWEVER, AATA Executive Director Richard Simonet-
ta said the changes could not be considered a cut in service
because there is no way to make comparisons between the
"If you cut the hours of service, but carry the same
amount of people, this is not a cut, but a shifting of services to
more productively serve the public," said Simonetta.
Despite its cost effectiveness, some citizens protested the
changes at the board meeting last week.
AATA OFFICIALS acknowledge that four per cent of-the
population are not within "reasonable access" (within four
blocks) of service.
Monica Schteingart lives in the Geddes-Washtenaw area,
near the Huron River and- is among this four per cent.
Blasting AATA, she said she is "very committed to public
transportation and believes it's a basic right of citizens," and
she said she is "being discriminated against."
Another shift in the 1990 plan was the switch from fixed
routes, which Board members said was supposed to be a
"phased" transition. AATA officials, however, decided to
implement one major change instead.
The high cost of phasing was the "driving force in fhe
decision," according to Simonetta. "The authority had' to
realize economies, and it couldn't afford phasing without
drastic cuts in service," he said.
After studying other transit industry experiences, AATA
found phasing is more difficult because it's harder to manage
several small changes than one major one, Simonetta said.
Trust in economy declines
By BETH ROSENBERG
Nation-wide declines in consumer
confidence in the U.S. economy will
continue through 1979 and into the early
1980s, causing lower consumer sales -
especially of cars and other large items
- according to the latest quarterly
Survey of Consumer Attitudes by the
University's Survey Research Center.
The survey showed a widespread
decline during the past year due to
greater public awareness of the
slowdown, in the economy and
heightened fears of unemployment.
"PEOPLE ARE shifting their con-
cern from inflation toward unem-
ployment as the hardest economic
problem facing the nation," said Dr.
Richard Curtin, survey director and
University Economics professor.
"(But) more are concerned with in-
flation right now."
More families reported they were
worse off financially during the May-
August quarter studied in the survey,
while more families said they expected
to be worse off financially in a year,
The study also found confidence in
government economic policies to fight
inflation and unemployment remained
near the lowest level ever recorded.
Buying attitudes towards
automobiles were largely unchanged
from May, but below last year's
leevels. In August, 38 per cent of all
families rated buying conditions good
for cars, compared with 39 per cent in
May and 40 per cent a year ago. Rising
interest rates may have influenced the
figures, the study said.-

Pap al visit
in Ire land
From UPI and Reuter
DUBLIN, Ireland - Ireland put in
motion yesterday the biggest transpor-
tation operation in its history for the
visit of Pope John Paul II, the only man
who will be able to get around Ireland
easily this weekend.
Nearly every Irishman in this nation
of 3.2 million people, 94 per cent Roman
Catholic, seemed to be planning to at-
tend one of the pope's five major public
masses, so plans to handle the throngs
bordered on the incredible.
Extremely tight security precau-
tions, the most extensive Ireland has
ever seen, were meshed with the trans-,
MORE THAN 250,000 Catholics were
expected to cross the border to see the
Pope. Most of them will travel in char-
tered buses and special security
precautions were in force as the first
buses passed through the predominan-
tly-Protestant towns en route to the
ALl police leave was cancelled and
extra troops were moved to potential
trouble spots along the border as the
Catholic priests privately briefed the
pilgrims not to display papal flags or
Catholic emblems on their journey to

School and colleges open their doors, their arms to em-
brace, and their "mouths to swallow up" myriads of millions
of children and young people.
"WHAT MANNER OF CHILD SHALL THIS BE!" So said
the people throughout all the hill country of Judea when
John the Baptist was born.
What manner of people will these myriads of millions of
young people now entering schools turn out to be? "And
Jesus called a little child unto Him, and sat him in the midst of
them, and said, Verily I say untoyou, except ye be converted,
and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the
kingdom of heaven.-But whoso shall offend one of these lit-
tle ones which believe in Me. 'IT WERE BETTER FOR HIM

AND THAT HE WERE DROWNED IN THE. DEPTH OF THE
Over seventy years ago a young man sat in a class at a
university and heard an eminent Doctor Professor say
the prominent doctor, for the boy seemed to "smell a rat," or
the odor of hypocrisy and asked himself: "What is he doing
in the church and a prominent officer in his denomination?
Why don't he get out?" For his own profit, and for that of any
he might have the opportunity to influence, later on he
undertook to make an analysis of these two men.
This analysis was suggested by a question God asked
Job-Job 38:4, etc.: 'Where were you when I laid the foun-
dations of the world-when morning stars sang
together-and all the sons of God shouted for joy?" The
younger of these two men was probably in his late twen-
ties: so, where was he just about 30 years before! He was in
his father's loins-rather difficult to Imagine what he looked
like then! 29 years ago he was in his mother's womb;:28 years
ago he was a helpless little baby, unconscious of being alive,
and unable to utter intelligent speech. About 27 years ago he
was still a helpless infant but beginning to say: What's this?
what's that? why this?' why that? etc. Marvel of marvels,
however, for in a little more than a score of years, he Is sitting
