Together with $250 million previously

over incumbent Louis Miriani in his
first bid for elective office.
He suffered a heart attack while
visiting a friend and died later in a
Lexington hospital. Funeral
arrangements were not im-
mediately known. Cavanagh is sur-
vived by his wife, Kathy, and eight
children.
CAVANAGH WAS described by
magazines as the "mayor who woke
up the city," who "glows with the
engaging freshness of the young,
new politician."
His political career, however,
crumbled in the 1970s after a
meteoric rise the previous decade.
"Every Detroiter shares a deep
sense of loss at the death of former
Mayor Jerome Cavanagh," said
Mayor Coleman Young. "Each of us
gained inspiration and strength
from his courage, his dignity and his
personal warmth. As mayor, he
displayed a deep devotion to the
needs of every citizen.
In the years following his tenure
as mayor, Cavanagh practiced law
in Detroit and Ann Arbor.
HIS POLITICAL fortunes began to
slide in 1966, when he was defeated
by former Gov. G. Mennen Williams
for the Democratic U.S. Senate
nomination. Williams subsequently
was defeated by Republican Robert
Griffin.
Cavanagh drew nationwide atten-
tion as mayorduring Detroit's 1967

Cavanagh
riots, when 43 died and scores were
injured.
He lost the Democratic guber-
natorial nomination, in 1974
following treatment for kidney can-
cer and allegations-which
Cavanagh staunchly denied-that he
had underworld contacts.
Reaction began pouring in within
an hour after his death became
known.
REPUBLICAN GOV. William
Milliken said, "He served the people
of Detroit during some of that city's
most traumatic years-the years of
unrest and rebuilding that im-
mediately followed the 1967 riot. He
met all the challenges that came his
way-from the challenge of being an
underdog in a political contest to the
challenge posed by cancer on the eve
of an important primary race."
Chrysler Board Chairman Lee
Iacocca said Cavanagh "brought
excitement to Detroit and showed us
that the city had a future."
Jack Casey, a Detroit public
relations man who served as
Cavanagh's special assistant, called
the Cavanagh years "a very exciting
time to be in political office."
Sen. Carl Levin (D-Mich.) said
Cavanagh "helped people under-
stand the need for social programs
-and he brought to government a
brand of compelling commitment
which lifted both public service and
Jerry Cavanagh out of the or-,
dinary."

October housing costs up;
record inflation rate likely

ted next month, they said.
THE SHARP jump in interest rates
triggered by the Federal Reserve
Board in October will not be reflected in
the government's price survey for
another month, the economists said.
"If housing increases were high in
October, the November increase will be
whopping," said Torda. Russell said
the higher interest rates would show up

next month "with a vengeance.".
Russell said he expected the
economic recession to bring about a
decline in inflation in 1980. However, he
added, Americans still can expect
several months of steep price increases
before the situation improves.
Russell also said the recession should
bring about a fall in interest rates
which would reduce the cost of home
ownership.

conjunction with the National Advisory
Council on Womens' Education
Programs to investigate instances of
sexual harrassment of students by
faculty and staff on campus, and;
"took initial steps toward the
allocation funds to the Residence Hall
Council, which in turn allocates funds to
dormitory governments.
Canale said before the meeting his
decision not to seek re-appointment to
the treasurer's position was based on
the fact that he felt he had met the goals
he set for himself on taking the job last
January.
"MSA NOW HAS a system of finan-
cial accountability," he said, "but the
programs I helped institute must con-
tinue to be carried out." Canale also
noted his success in producing two
sound audits for the Assembly and in-
stituting a new accounting procedure
designed specifically for MSA by an
outside agency. He also cited the adop-
tion of rigid budgeting procedures that

allows the body "to spend one dollar on
an item today that it would have spent
two dollars on the year before."
Canale's replacement will be chosen
by a vote of the entire Assembly
sometime next term. Applicants for the
position will be interviewed by MSA
Permanent Interviewing Committee
President Jim Alland and Canale hin-
self. The treasurer said he will continue
his functions on the Assembly until a
suitable replacement is found.
Alland said he was "floored" by
Jackpor's announcement of
resignation, saying he received no prior
notification. The assembly member
noted time constraints as the main
reason for his departure, which is effec-
tive immediately.
JACKPOR WAS instrumental in
establishing the body's International
Student Affairs Committee earlier this
year and was just recently named its
chairman.
"He gave me no indication of his
plans," Alland said after the meeting.
"I feel it's a great loss to the Assembly.
Riase had a lot to offer us from his per-
spective as an international student."
Bridge said her decision was in the
making for a number of weeks and said
her resignation from the position of

rs resign:
Minority Affairs Coordinator was based
on health and time constraints.
However, she announced she will con-
tinue to be active on the committee.
MOORE SAID she recently was
notified that she was eligible for an in-
ternship with a member of Parliament
in Britain and that she will also take
courses at the University of London.
"I regret not being able to work on
the upcoming course evaluation
program," she said after the meeting.
"I think it is an issue the body can
really take action on."
Alland said the decision to place ad-
ditional emphasis on the project was
due to the inability of MSA's part-time
staff to coordinate its efforts as well as
residents from individual departments.
THE ASSEMBLY president told the
body that presidential designate and
outgoing Vice-President for Academic
Affairs Harold Shapiro was willing to
support the body but was not willing to
sell the program to professors.
"He said he would not demand that
professors submit to the evaluations,''
Alland said. "Right now, the program
is so decentralized no one is willing to
say a course must be evaluated."
The assembly also voted, to place
special emphasis on increasing safety

measures on campus. "The University
has to realize it has to take an increased
role in providing students with a safe
atmosphere," Alland said after the
meeting. He pointed out recent reports
of reported rape in the city as a major
area of student concern. Direct phone
lines tied to University security, in-
creased lighting and additional late
night bus service as areas of discussion.
Alland said the motion to support the
activities of the presidential com-
mission on sexual harassment was
prompted by a letter he received from
the group last week.
"HERE WE HAVE a possible tool to
deal with the problem on a national
level," he saidt"What we want to do is
inform students of the occurence of this
type of activity and make them aware
that this is a problem that has to be
dealt with."
