SECURITY GUARDS ALSO ROAM CAMPUS
Police try to keep watchful eye over 'U'
By TIM YAGLE
Although police officers in Ann
Arbor seem to be preoccupied with con-
trolling football Saturday traffic and
busting drunks, the people in blue do
have to contend with more serious
Larceny and thievery are the most
common crimes affecting University
students, according to Ann Arbor
Police Chief Walter Krasny. He said
students arriving at the dormitories in
the fall are likely targets because the
thieves can easily blend into the myriad'
of unfamiliar faces.
ALTHOUGH THE University itself is
in a relatively confined area, it does not
have a separate police department, as
do many colleges. Under an agreement
with the University, the city provides a
campus contingent of ten officers plus a
liason person. Krasny said the force is
"of minimal strength based on the
availability of personnel," but
nonetheless adequate for the campus.
The conventional police officers are
supplemented by a crew of University
security officers and State Security
One of the most serious problems en-
countered by the law enforcement
coaliton is rape. It is estimated that
many instances of rape are not repor-
ted to authorities, but Krasny said the
police can better deal with the problem
if they are more aware of the extent
and the nature of the attacks. He added
that a special unit to deal with medical
and psychological problems of rape is
available at University Hospital on a 24
Although the extent of such assaults
is not precisely known, there is a less
serious problem which is more
widespread. Bicycles, for many a con-
venient transportation alternative,
pose a tempting sight for many area
thieves. Rarely is a bike seen (at least
for long) parked without a strong chain
and lock. Bikes may be further protec-
ted by registering them at City Hall,
Krasny said. A permanent license costs
ANOTHER AREA of less than severe
enforcement concerns the drinking age
laws. Krasny said the police make only
spot checks of area bars to be sure they
are complying with the new drinking
On a more philosophical tone, Krasny
said police attitudes towards students
and vice versa are better than they
were during the turbulent late 1960s.
Krasny said there is now no real
animosity between students and police.
Many of the officers in the depar-
tment are college educated and as a
result, "are a little more oriented
toward college life," Krasny said.
"There's a little better understanding."
The average officer is accepted today
and they (students) like to have them
around," Krasny said. "Ten years ago,
I couldn't say that."
BREAD AND WATER BARELY AFFORDABLE:
Food bills strain student budgets
ALTHOUGH POLICE don't respond to campus protests in the numbers they used
to, studentsarestill likely to meet up with Ann Arbor's finest at some time,
whether it be for a traffic violation or to report a stolen bicycle.

was more extensive-comparing 11
stores and 27 foods-but results were
comparable to the Daily survey, which
was conducted last May.
Kroger, a chain supermarket on
Broadway north of central campus,
proved to offer the foods the cheapest,
with the smaller campus-area grocers
charging substantially more. But some
of the small independent grocery stores
offer personalized service not available
at the larger chain stores.
A few of the campus area grocers
boast good meat and cheese counters
and fresh baked goods. Others,
however, make up for the convenience
they offer with crowded and dirty
aisles, sparse selections, and
sometimes outrageous prices.
In the survey, the totals at the most
and least expensive stores differed by
$4.23-a sizable amount considering
rather austere student budgets.
PRICES ON SOME brand name
items, such as Kellogg Pop Tarts and
Campbell's Tomato Soup were com-
pared. On items such as flour and eggs,
the price of the least expensive brand
was recorded. The Kroger house brand
was usually cheaper and specials on
items such as bread helped lower the
total price there.
The biggest price difference was on
saltine crackers. The 75 cent sticker at
Ralph's was almost double the price on
the budget brand at Kroger.
The register tape at Kroger had the
lowest total but the store is also furthest
from campus. The supermarket is a
healthy mile walk from central cam-
pus, and those without cars may em-
ploy buses (or borrowed shopping car-
ts) for the transport of heavy grocery
bags back to campus.

As far as enforcement is concerned,
the only difference between a Univer-
sity parking ticket and a city citation is
the color of the ink. University tickets
are written in blue, of course.
Another area in which cooperation
benefits both the city and University is
research. The school's reputation and
fine library facilities provide Ann Ar-
bor with a spectrum of information and
expertise. As a consequence, the city,
which in turn provides an attractive
area in which to build, has lured many
researchers and their facilities to
locate themselves in the area.
Joint committees composed of
representatives from both the Univer-
sity and the city (and sometimes
representatives from Ypsilanti) plan
out many cooperative projects such as
the mid-summer street art fair, as well
as enforcement-type activities for
events such as the. Hash Bash. The
newest group of this type is to decide
upon methods of running the first Ann
