WASHINGTON (AP) - Energy the sun.

L;I I I and fuel prices rising steadily,
S A ISchlesinger reminded Carter, "There is

a growing interest in the possibilities
that solar energy holds for reducing our
vulnerabilities from an over-
dependence on imported petroleum-
based products."
The sources said Schlesinger's memo
is likely to have a considerable impact
on the President. The memo was
described by one source ps the result of
an enormous struggle at the highest
levels of the Energy Department,
where several top officials pushed a go-
slow approach.
Solar lobbyists who have heard about
the memo said they were plebsantly
AMONG THE solar policy options
prepared for Carter is one that calls for
few solar incentives and no dramatic
increase in the amount of energy
available from solar technologies.

A second option - the one advocated
by Schlesinger - calls for spending $2.5
billion by 1985 to provide tax incentives
and credit assistance to solar producers
and consumers in areas including solar
hot water, passive solar design and use
of solar power in industrial processes.
If implemented, the policy review
predicts, U.S. reliance on solar power
would nearly double.
A third opinion, favored by solar ad-
vocates, would provide for "significant
additional financial incentives,"
estimated by Schlesinger at $6 billion in
1980 alone, rising to a total $44 billion by
1985. If implemented, this would result
in solar power contributing 23 per cent
of the nation's energy needs. If spen-
ding were boosted to $113 billion by the
year 2000, solar power could supply up
to 25 per cent of the energy demand.

the majority of the Democrats on Coun-

said she wanted a new guide for plan-

Morris responded shouting, "False!"
She added, "Based on the area plans

Greene brought up the question
whether the Republicans favor the
Cranbrook development, with its new
single-family housing zoning, for

political reasons./
Ignited by the radio comments of
retired Fourth Ward Republican Coun-
cilman Ronald Trowbridge, rumors
have circulated throughout the city that
the GOP is voting specifically to in-
crease single-family unit zoning in Ann
Arbor. The reasoning behind the votes,
many Democrats speculate, is that
traditionally, single-family dwelling
residents tend to vote Repubslican,
while apartment dwellers tend to vote
THE FOURTH Ward, the city's
"swing ward," often holds the key at
election time to Ann Arbor's political
climate for the following year.
Whichever party wins the Council
seats in that ward will usually have a
majority on Council, as the First and
Second Wards are almost exclusively
Democratic, and the Third and Fifth
almost totally Republican.
"A lot of folks are concerned about
changing the character of the south
area politically," said Greene.
Belcher has said, however, that his
decisions are based on population den-_
sity, and not partisan leanings.
Also passed Thursday night were the
Meadowbrook and Pittsfield Valley
developments. Meadowbrook, a 53.5.
companion project to Cranbrook, did
not incur the same complications as its
sister plan and was passed with only
Greene dissenting.
Pittsfield, a 61.5 acre landaparcel
slated to become another
housing/commercial complex,
received three negative votes.

Former U.S. Rep. Joshua Eil-
berg, seen here leaving the Phila-
delphia Courthouse, changed his
plea to guilty yesterday in a plea-
bargaining arrangement that en-
ded his day-old trial on conflict of
interest charges. Eilberg, who
represented Pennsylvania's 4th
District, was sentenced by
Federal Judge Raymond

Broderick to five years probation
and a $10,000 fine. Broderick also
stipulated that Eilberg may not
seek any state or local office for
the period of his probation. The
terms of the statute under which
Eilberg was convicted prohibit
him for life from holding any
federal public office.

or two sheets of stiff white paper. A
projector can be made by poking a pin
or pencil hole in one end of the box or

sun, focus the light through the hole on-

size of the image can be changed by
altering the distance between the two

The tentative weather forecast for
