city OK's
HUD low
rent plan
for elderly

A federal rent subsidy was guaranteed for a 200
unit senior citizen apartment building on the city's
south side when City Council approved site plans for
the project late Monday night.
Sunday was officially the deadline for approval of
funds from the Department of Housing and Urban
Development (HUD). But a representative for the
developer said HUD had agreed to approve a rent
subsidy if Council agreed to a revised building plan
for Cranbrook Towers at Monday's meeting.
AFTER AN HOUR-LONG discussion on amen-
dments, Council gave Cranbrook Venture, the
development firm, the go-ahead to begin construction
of a seven-story building in the Cranbrook Village
subdivision. The building will be constructed on
Eisenhower Road between Main and Ann Arbor-
Saline Roads.
The company plans to begin construction im-
mediately and hopes to complete the project within a

year, Martin Overhiser, Director of the City Planning
Department, said yesterday.
Council tabled the plans for the second time last
week, despite the warnings of Cranbrook Venture
representative Jay Eldridge, that the subsidy would
be lost. Republican councilmembers refused to ap-
prove the original plans for an 11-story building
presented to them at the "last minute."
SINCE COUNCIL DID approve the plans for the
seven story building, HUD and Cranbrook Venture
will probably close the deal within a week, according
to HUD spokesman Curtis Coleman.
The subsidy is financed by funds that were unex-
pectedly available at the end of HUD's fiscal
year-September 30. With the federal subsidy, future
elderly residents of the building will pay no more
than 25 per cent of their adjusted gross income to
OVERHISER SAID THE developer would be
responsible for extensive improvements on
Eisenhower Road, at an estimated cost of between

$500,000 to $750,000.
There are three other senior citizen housing
developments in the city, including Lloyd Terrace,
Miller Manor and the John Knox center. Another
project for the elderly is under construction at the
corner of Packard and Main Street.
The Cranbrook Towers development is the only city
project currently subsidized by this UD program.
DURING THE AUDIENCE participation section of
the Council meeting, Ulrich Stoll, a city resident,
urged Council to reconsider approval of the Cran-
brook Towers project, citing a lack of senior citizen
input in the planning.
Stoll said the location of the building was unsuitable
for senior citizens because of the "general
geographic isolation."
The "large impersonal development on the edge of
town," Stoll explained, did not have the amenities or
access to city services the city's other senior citizen
buildings had.

Teen trends

College freshpersons who wonder
what their peers are thinking and doing
ought to consult Lloyd Johnston.
A program director for the Univer-
sity's Institute for Social Research
(ISR), Johnston'is somewhat of an ex-
pert on young people. Every year since
1975 he has surveyed 17,000 high school
seniors on topics ranging from drug
abuse to attitudes toward sex roles.

vey of 1979 high school seniors - this
years' college freshpersons - indicate:
" Having a good marriage and family
life is the most important goal for
today's young people, while being a
community leader is least important;
* More than two-thirds feel women
should be full-time homemakers when
their children are young;
" Most think things will get worse in
the world and worry about the threat of
nuclear war more than those surveyed
in the last decade.
" Use of marijuana and cocaine has
increased among young people, while
drinking remains steady; and

THE EXAMPLES above hardly,
touch the surface of Johnston's resear-
ch. In addition to surveying students
every year, Johnston is conducting
longitudinal studies - interviewing the
same group year after year. This study,
the results of which will be ready in

1981, will help show changes in a per-
son's attitudes as he or she matures,
Johnston said. It will also help "charac-
terize" those who choose to go to
college, enter the military, join the
labor force or become housewives, he
Since his research is funded by the
National Institute on. Drug Abuse
(NIDA) much of Johnston's studies
concentrate on trends in substance
abuse among high school students. He
studies prevalence of current drug
usage, trends over the past four years,
and attitudes about illegal drugs and
their effects.
Over the past four years use of
marijuana, cocaine and inhalants has
increased among young people, accor-
ding to Johnston's recent statistics,
while use of sedatives and "lifetime"
use of heroin have been dropping
gradually. He also found that the num-
ber of students who felt marijuana was
harmful declined, the number who
believed cigarette smoking involved
great risk to health increased.

WITHIN THE next three to six mon-
ths, Johnston said he should have
results of a "satellite study" on the ef-
fects of marijuana decriminalization
legislation on usage in high schools. He
is currently comparing "before and af-
ter" statistics of student marijuana
usage in states such as California and
New York, which have decriminalized
the drug.
Johnston's surveys are given to 17,000
students in 125 high schools each year.
He and co-researchers Jerald Bachman
try to interview a small sample of
students themselves to keep in touch
with the way young people think, John-
ston said.
Each questionnaire takes about one
class period for students to answer,
Johnston said. Sample questions in-
clude: "During the last 12 months how
,often have you set fire to someone's
property on purpose?", "Do you feel
that the people running the government
are smart people who usually know
what they are doing?", and "How likely
is it that you would want to have

Although the same questions are
usually asked each year, they are
changed occasionally if something new
develops, said Johnston. Recent sur-
veys include new questions on the use of
the drug PCP ("angel dust") and amyl
or butyl nitrite (poppers), he added.
Very few of the students answer the
questions untruthfully he said. The
computer which compiles the suryeys
is programmed to look for logical in-
consistencies in replies.
For example, said Johnston, if
someone says they take LSD 40 times a
month, "we'd drop them on the basis
that they couldn't be filling out the sur-
vey under those conditions.'

In the 16th and 17th centuries, people
put hot coals from the fireplace into a
shallow pan which was then slipped into
beds to warm them before the
household retired for the night.

Admitted homosexual gets Army discharge

FT. LEWIS, Wash. (UPI) - A
military board voted two-to-one yester-
day to discharge Pfc. Roger Cutsinger

would have an adverse effect on the
morale and discipline of the Army.
Rehabilitation was not possible and
Cutsinger should be honorably
discharged, the decision said.
The next step in Cutsinger's possible
expulsion was up to the division com-
mander, Maj. Gen. Richard Cavazos,
who will review the board's findings
and decide whether to concur with them
or retain Cutsinger.
THE BOARD'S majority decision

was signed by Lt. Col. Curt Custer and
Capt. Bryan Smith. The minority
decision, written by Capt. John'Jones,
said Cutsinger is suitable for further
service and could be rehabilitated and
Cutsinger was calm and showed no
emotion while the decision was read.
"I am very proud of that one vote,"
said Cutsinger, adding he had "no
CUTSINGER'S attorney, Capt. John

Beasley, said the one dissenting vote
would have a bearing on the case if an
appeal is filed.
Cutsinger has a number of legal op-
tions, he said, including appeal to a
federal court and to the division com-
Until Cutsinger is formally
discharged, he will remain with his unit
at Fort Lewis and will work at his nor-
mal duties. In the meantime, Cutsinger
said, he plans "to play a lot of tennis."

Radioactive water to be treated

... discharged from Army
from the Army because the 21-year-old
Battle Creek, Mich., man is an admit-
ted homosexual.
The Administrative Elimination
Board deliberated 75" minutes before
returning the verdict, ending four days
of proceedings on Cutsinger's case.
Cutsinger, a clerk-typist who com-
pleted nearly two years, of his enlist-
ment, was seeking to become the first
acknowledged homosexual to finish out
a full "hitch" in the Army.
BUT THE BOARD said Cutsinger
was unsuitable for further service and

Regulatory Commission official told
Congress yesterday he will urge the
NRC this week to order about 30 per
cent of the contaminated water at
Three Mile Island treated to remove
Harold Denton, NRC director of
nuclear regulation, said the process
would help cope with accumulating
radioactive wastes that threaten to
overflow storage tanks at the site of the
March 28 nuclear accident.
IN THIS MANNER, about 300,000
gallons of moderately radioactive
water can be removed from nearly full
storage tanks located in the auxiliary
building adjacent to the damaged reac-
tor, Denton indicated.
That would help buy some time in the
cleanup operation, he added.
If the NRC does not go along with this
approach, then some of the radioactive
water will have to be removed from the
storage tanks and pumped into similar
tanks located next to the plant's second
reactor, Denton said.
Denton and other NRC officials
testified before the Senate nuclear
regulation subcommittee on the ac-

cident at the central Pennsylvania
power plant and its aftermath.
contaminated water are now stored at
the damaged nuclear plant, and the
level is increasing by about 1,500
gallons daily..
According to the NRC, the radioac-
tive water has increased by about 30 or
40 per cent in the six months since the
accident. This results from the need to
keep the reactor core surrounded with
water so it won't overheat again and

from leaks in the system that are con-
taminating clean water, NRC officials
But Denton said the filtering process
will not work for the more than 600,000
gallons of highly radioactive water still
in the reactor contaminment strue-
ture-a building so radioactive that
workers have not yet been able to enter.
Other means will have to be found to
cope with these radioactive wastes, he

person would have to smoke five joints

herbicide for a year in order to cause
lung damage.
THE CESSATION of paraquat7
spraying is in compliance with a 1978
amendment to the Foreign Assistance
Act. The amendment prohibits aid "to
any program involving the spraying of

a herbicide to eradicate marijuana
plants" if the herbicide is proved un-
The amendment was sponsored by
Sen. Charles Percy (R-Ill.), and was
praised by anti-paraquat groups. The
language of the amendment was
altered last week to appease the
Mexicans. As it stands now, the amen-
dment could be interpreted to also end
aid for the poppy eradication program.
