years. Several council members, in-
cluding Mayor Louis Belcher,
previously opposed the idea of levying a
high millage tax in a single year.
Belcher said last night, however, that
a .16 mill per year levy over a period of
five years is "very acceptable."
The bond sale proposals will be the
first placed before Ann Arbor voters as
stipulated by the recently-passed
Headlee state tax limitation amen-
dment.
THREE UNIVERSITY area
streets-Maynard, Ann Street and
South University-are slated for recon-
struction, with aid from the University.
Finances for the revamping of Traver
Road, another project on the ballot,
would also come from within the city.

Platt and North Maple Roads would be
funded partially by matching state and
federal grants.
The shredder-which would cost the
city $2,825,000-was recently approved
by Council as a method of prolonging
the life of Ann Arbor's nearly uver-
flowing landfill. The landfill equipment,
at the price of $725,000, would be a
valuable asset to the dump even if the
shredder fails to pass.
One of the major disputes on council
concerning the placement of the street
reconstruction before the voters was.
whether the projects should be funded
out of the city's general budget or by
money raised specificallyfor that pur-
pose. While Belcher said he feels "more
money from the general fund should go
to streets and maintenance," he agreed

to approve the proposal.
SOME OF THE Council members
classified the projects as "normal
street maintenance," while others
treated them as major renovations.
In response to Belcher's assertion
that the regonstruction should be fun-
ded by the city's general fund, Coun-
cilman Earl Greene (D-Second Ward)
said "Mayor, I want to wish you luck in
finding the $525,000 to $800,000 for street
repair out of the general budget-I
don't know where.
"It's important to citizens to realize
there is a bottom to the well as far as
dollars are concerned," Greene said.
"That's what Headlee was all
about-folks asking to make some
specific choices."

said Levin.
However, Levin said President Car-
ter should veto any legislation regar-
ding security guarantees if it would
commit the U.S. to another war like
Vietnam.
Levin also said opening ties with
China will have an effect on our
relations with the Soviet Union. The
signing of a SALT II treaty has already

program to arouse public awareness by
installing smoke detectors in every
household appears to be paying off.
Officials said the number of reported
structural fires in the first six months of
last year had been reduced from 41 to
22, compared with the same period a
year before. Dollar losses were cut
from $87,418 to $7,780.
The city will continue to study the
life- and property-saving benefits of the
program until the end of 1979.

COUNCILMAN E. Edward Hood (R-
Fourth Ward) said he thought the street
maintenance costs might scare off the
voters, discouraging them from ap-
proving projects with "real merit, such
as the fire station," which also will ap-
pear on the ballot.
Hood also said he disapproves of
raising property taxes, which the street
repair millage would do.

been delayed. Levin has yet to see the
treay but said he hopes to be able to
support it.
IN RESPONSE to equality in num-
bers of strategic arms, Levin said,
"Everybody is for some equilibrium
but many debatable questions exist."
Levin added, "Their weapons are
larger and our are more accurate."
In response to the President's State of
the Union address, Levin said he is
doubtful about keeping within the limits
of the new budget. "There will be shif-
ting within it," said Levin.
Levin, who was recently appointed to
serve- on the Senate Governmental Af-
fairs Committee, will chair the Sub-
committee on Oversight of Government
Management.
LEVIN SAID he will concentrate his
efforts on regulatory reform. "The
Oversight of Government Management
Subcommittee will provide an effective
means to check the bureacuracy and
make it more sensitive to the citizens it
is supposed to serve," said Levin.
Levin said he believes, "The
bureaucratic executives are abusive,
wasteful, and using power from the
elected officials in Congress, even the
President."
Levin said the Subcommittee will
examine the effectiveness of gover-
nment programs. "The Subcommittee
has jurisdiction to investigate the
economy and efficiency of government
operations. We will pay particular at-
tention to the way federal regulations
are implemented," said Levin.
ANOTHER GOAL of the subcommit-
tee will be regaining control over
legislation. "There are a number of
proposals which have been developed to
alter the structural relationship bet-
ween the Congress and the agencies,
which will restore legislative power to
the Congress," said Levin.
Levin believes that his appointment
to the Senate 'Governmental Affairs
Committee and the chairmanship of the
Subcommittee on Oversight will help
him meet one of his campaign promises
"to help the people of Michigan control
the ways in which unelected, and
therefore unaccountable bureaucrats
influence their lives."

Another issue the senator is concer-
ned with is the recognition of Armenian
genocide and ratification of the Inter-
national Genocide Convention.
IN HIS FIRST speech on the
floor of the U.S. Senate, Levin
urged his colleagues to take a strong
stand when the report on genocide
comes before the United Nations'
Human Rights Commission to
recognize the Armenian genocide of
1915-1918 when 1,500,000 Armenians
were killed.
Levin also urged the ratification of
the International Genocide Convention
by the Senate this April. "The U.S.
should join with the other 82 nations
which have already ratified the conven-
tion." Levin added, "We should join the
family of nations and boost the hopes of
humankind by ratification of the
Genocide Convention this April."
On the whole, Carl Levin has been Ad-
justing to his role as senator. "It's a
fine job but I'd rather do my job and be
in Michigan." Levin added, "It's a dif-
ficult city to find your way around,
diagonal streets cross each other and
the lights are poorly timed. They could
use some Michigan traf fic engineers."
GLOBAL WEATHER
GENEVA, Switzeiland (AP)-A
one-year global weather .experiment
involving scientists from scores of
nations started in December to deter-
mine the limits of weather forecasting.
The study will also investigate the
reasons for changes in climate.
Scientists will use ships, balloons,
earth satellites, ocean buoys, and high-
speed computers in their study of the
atmosphere over the land and seas
areas of the earth.
Information collected 'during the
weather experiment will help inter-
national planning in such fields as
agricultue, forestry, water use and en-
vironmental protection.
The study is sponsored by the World
Meterological Organization, a United
Nations agency.

program from the U.S. Department of
Agriculture (USDA).
Senator John Hertel (D-Karper
Woods) explained that the Michigan
meat inspection program is funded on a
50-50 matching funds'basis betweenthe
USDA and the state Department of
Agriculture.
UNDER THE federal cutbacks,
Michigan stands to lose at least
$440,000, $220,000 from the USDA and an
equal amount from the state. "This
would effectively cripple Michigan's
meat inspection program," said Hertel.
Hertel said that Michigan's meat in-
spection is the most stringent in the
nation. "Without the funding to con-
tinue our own inspections, the. USDA
will take them over, using their less
strict standards," Hertel added.
'Besides not controlling which meat
parts go into hot dogs, lunch meats and
sausages, federal standards do not test
for PBB or brucellosis (a disease in
dairy animals). Because they are not
tested, contaminiated animals could be
used in the meats.
HERTEL SAID that while PBB is not
life-threatening if consumed, eating
brucellosis-contaminated meat will
cause undulant fever ir humans.
But, Hertel said Michigan citizens
are well-protected from brucellosis-
tainted animals and that the disease is
"virtually non-existent."
Outside of Michigan there are also
"custom cutting slaughterhouses"
which are inspected by neither state
nor federal agencies. Any diseased
animal may be brought to these places
to be butchered and used for meat, said
Hertel.
Hertel is counting on Michigan
legislators in Washington to fight to
keep the money in the inspection
program. If the state stops inspections,
the federal government would then be
required by law to take over the entire
program.
"A complete federal program for
Michigan would cost an additional $2.5
million annually," Hertel said. "If this
is what President Carter and the USDA
consider as wise money management,
then I can understand why the federal
budget is out of control."
