Carter gives vote of
confidence to Iran
The case went to the Court of Appeals
for the first time in January, 1978,
where a three-judge panel ordered
Judge Ziem to rehear the case. Judge
Ziem returned the same decision after
relating the facts of the case to
Michigan's child custody statute which
addresses the emotional well-being of
, " 'children involved in custody litigation.
Attorney Shirley Burgoyne, who han-
- a died Miller's case until the Supreme
Court appeal, again took the case to the
Court of Appeals, where Ziem's
decision was upheld. Attorneys Michael
Moran and Tom O'Brien, who were part
of the team who successfully defended
Filipina Narciso and Leonora Perez in
.the VA Hospital case, took over for the
Supreme Court appeal.
"WE ABSOLUTELY had reasonable
grounds for our appeal," said Moran.
"The burden is on the person who wants
to change the custody to prove that the
child's best interests aren't, being ser-
ved in their present situation. That
simply wasn't proven."
"The whole ordeal was traumatic and
extremely expensive," said Miller.
"I'm hoping that my fight will mean
that others won't have to go through the
same thing. I really feel that someone
shouldn't have to lose their child over a
problem with lifestyle."
Miller added that she hopes her son
will come back to live with her.
i Miller, who still lives 'with her
lover, was extremely grateful for the
backing that she has received during
her ordeal. "People have been
amazingly supportive," she said. party for me when they heard the go

Some local residents are more con-
scientious about snow removal. "We
shovel the sidewalk all the time.
Otherwise the hordes of women who
come to our house could never get in,"
said University law student Mark
"Buck" Norby, while standing beneath
the "Chateau de Bacchanalia" sign
hanging above his front porch. (Bac-
chanalia means wine, women and
IT'S A LITTLE early in the year to
give up on shoveling," remarked
homeowner William Gilliam, while lif-
ting another load of snow off his
sidewalk. "But later on, I can under-
stand it. The back gives out and you just
say, 'Let it melt'."
Just around the corner on Packard,
Bill Crawford was busy shoveling snow
into an economy-sized garbage can,
and arranging it into a neat row bet-
ween his house and his neighbor's
"I'll tell you a secret," confided
Crawford. "The reason I'm piling snow
up like this is because my neighbors
like to use their back yard for parking, -
and the only way they can get to it is by
driving across my front lawn."
"It really messes up the lawn," con-
tinued the Ph.d. candidate. "But this
should stop them."
Engineering school sophomore John
Fialka decided it was easier to walk in
the street than to cope with snow-
covered sidewalks. "If two people are
coming down the sidewalk, it's just too
narrow and it's a hassle," he explained.
Though most of us are complaining
about the slushy streets, bruised legs,
and the snowy conditions in general,
there are some who find the weather
delightful, third-grader Jeff Conn and
second-grader Shelly Crow, for exam-
ple. The two Burns Park Elementary
School students agreed as they sledded
down the sidewalk, "We couldn't have
so much fun without the snow."

pressed a desire to see the former
president. Nixon, who has accepted the
invitation, will be returning to the
executive mansion for the first time
since he resigned in the heat of the
Watergate scandal in August 1974.
The afternoon meeting with reporters
was the president's first formal news
conference since he announced to the
nation his decision to extend diplomatic
recognition to China. It was also Car-
ter's first nationally televised ap-
pearance since the overthrow of the
Cambodian government and since the
turmoil in Iran forced Shah Mohammed
Reza Pahlavi to leave the country.
CARTER SAID that although the
administration strived during
negotiations with Peking to win a public
commitment that China's dispute with
Taiwan would be resolved peacefully,
"this was not possible to achieve." The
best the United States could do was ob-
tain a statement from the Chinese
saying that they "expect" the matter to
be resolved without violence, he said.
Carter also defended his inter-
pretation of Soviet President Leonid
Brezhnev's initial response to the China
decision. The Soviet news agency, Tass,
had disputed Carter's assessment as
too upbeat. But the president said
yesterday that the Brezhnev statement
was "constructive and positive, coon-
pared to the anticipation I had...."
IN OTHER MATTERS, the president
" He had no quarrels with is
National Advisory Committee 4n.
Women, even though he fired the
group's co-leader, Bella Abzug, last
Friday. Carter said, however, that
"there has not' been good cooperation
between the committee and my ad-
visers, or cabinet members or me."
" Despite last week's report by the
surgeon general warning anew of the
dangers of cigarette smoking, he would
continue to back government price
supports to tobacco growers. At the
same time, he said, "it's a completely
legitimate action for the government to
point out the dangers of smoking."
" While the United States is "very in-
terested" in oil and natural gas supplies
in Mexico, the administration will n~ot
encourage the Mexicans "to develop
them more rapidly than they desire."

By The Associated Press
The government reported yesterday
that Americans earned a shade more in
1978 than inflation took from them and
that they built homes at a booming rate.
The new economic reports promised
to cushion the economy against the 1979
recession that has been widely predic-
ted by economists outside the gover-
nment. But they enhanced the prospect
of still another year of the stubborn in-
flation that has dogged the economy.
THE COMMERCE Department said
the average American increased his
personal income last year by 11.7 per
cent. The increase outpaced inflation,
which rose in 1978 at a rate of slightly
more than nine per cent.
Another government report said in-
dustrial output rose at a robust rate as
the year ended and a report due today is
expected to place overall economic
gov t says
growth at a healthy five per cent for the
last three months of 1978.
Stimulation for the economy cane
also from a 19'78 homebuilding surge
that almost mached the record for ary
year and that grew stronger even as
mortgage interest rates climbed.
In another development, it was lear-
ned that President Carter's budget-
which he will send to Congress on Mon-
day - will call for a $20 billion increase
in spending to help people through in-
come security and public assistance
programs, most of the increase man-
dated by existing law.

New writing program shapes up for '79
(Continued from Page 1)
the University are now setting up their
own guidelines for the writing
requirement and these will be approved
by the ECB.
IN GENERAL, this will involve a
single course set up by a particular
department which will deal with
writing "as a process" - organizing
and arguing a point related to the
specific field that the student is pur-
"We will oversee the courses, but we
want the departments to teach them
with their own faculty," said ECB
Associate Director Barbara Morris.
"'In the case of the smaller departmen-
ts, (which may not be able to offer a
composition course), we will select one
of our lecturers to look at a student's
collection of writing and then assess it
to see if he has fulfilled the writing
Although ECB lecturers are confident
and enthusiastic about the new set of
programs, some loopholes currently
exist. Students are required to take a
post-test at the end of their composition
course so that the ECB can assess the
success of their tutoring and instructing
efforts. Since this post-test does not af-
fect a student's grade in the course,
some students did not bother to take the
test at the end of the fall 1978 term.
"SOME PEOPLE will slip through,"
said Clark. "There are people like that,
and there may be ways of getting
around it (taking the post-test) that we
may not know about."
Another important aspect of the ECB
program involves the Writing
Workshop which is staffed by five
members of the ECB and provides
professional help in writing to students.
"We are dealing with writing that's in
process - papers that the students are
doing," said Barbey Dougherty, a lec-
turer from ECB. "We'll deal with the
paper in any number of stages - giving
it a sort of audience reaction - before it
goes into the professor. What we don't
do is proofread."
DOUGHERTY also said that some
students who are having difficulty
either in their English composition
courses or in the tutorial program may
be referred to the workshop by their
The ECB also has a significant
relationship with the Coalition for the
Use of Learning Skills (COLS) and its
BRIDGE program. This program
selects 50 high school seniors each year
who have low test scores but have
demonstrated the capacity to do suc-
cessful college work. CULS works with
the ECB during the summer months
