Having come a long way toward a
treaty, Vance said, now is the time to
resolve the remaining issues.
The talks with Carter are being held
amid growing signs of strain between
the United States and Israel.

for a settlement.
EVEN SO, the outlook for concluding
a treaty between Egypt and Israel did
not appear bright as Carter moved into
what he says will be "a frank discussion
of the issues" with Begin.
Begin said it was the duty of the
United States to persuade the Egyp-
tians to change their attitude.
He added that Israel already has

The emergency room is barren, the
laboratory facilities are gone, and old
St. Joseph's Hospital is waiting to be
The building, located adjacent to the
University's Medical Center, was
abandoned in May, 1977 for a new
hospital on Huron River Drive. And
even though it was purchased by the
University in October, 1977, the old
hospital remains largely empty.
THE SCHOOL of Nursing has taken
over offices in the oldest part of the
building and recently petitioned the of-
fice of Vice-President James
Brinkerhoff, the University's chief
financial officer, for permission to
move its other offices into the now-
empty 1923 addition. Although the ad-
ministration has taken no action on the
project so far, the School of Nursing
hopes to receive approval in the next
"We have to have that space because.
we desperately need to consolidate,"
said Philip Kalisch, a professor in the
School of Nursing. "At the moment,
some of our offices are in a house on
Huron and some are in the Michigai
Theater. We also have some people in
Observatory Lodge and in Bradford
House," he added.
If the School of Nursing's plan is ap-
proved, renovations would cost bet-
ween $800,000 and $1 million. "We need
a new elevator, the walls have to be
completely plastered over and the
whole building has to follow the fire
code," Kalisch explained. Kalisch said
he hopes the renovation funds will be
provided by the State Legislature, but
he said, "I don't know exactly how we'll
get it, but we certainly need it."
THE UNUSED portion of the hospital
is, according to Kalisch, "depressingly
empty." The fixtures and equipment
were "ripped right off the walls," he
said. "It's a mess." Salvageable
hospital articles were either moved to
the new hospital or sold to the public in
an auction in September, 1977.
The largest and most modern part of
the building will eventually be used by
University Hospital for administrative
functions. According to a 'U' Hospital
spokesperson, the additional space is
essential now that the University is
planning to improve, modernize, and
expand its medical complex. The
University's purchase of the hospital
was "just a natural," commented the
The Regents had negotiated with the
hospital's previous owners, the St.
Joseph Mercy Order, for several years
and eventually paid $6,076,000 for the
11.5 acres of building and grounds.
Kalisch said he considers the sale "a
bargain" and a hospital spokesperson
said the property was "very valuable."
WHEN THE Regents decided to buy
the property, a trade-off occurred. The
Regents agreed that the building would
never be used as a hospital again, and
as a result, the staff of old St. Joe's
could move to new facilities.
This concession was made for two
reasons. The hospital was outdated and
the Regents' agreement justified St.
Joseph's application to the Michigan
Department of Health for permission to
move to a more modern building.
In addition, imany public health ex-
perts were convinced extra hospital
beds were not needed in Ann Arbor. The
hospital spokesperson said empty beds
tended to be filled resulting in un-
necessary hospitalization instead of
outpatient care. Due to public concern
over the rising costs of health care, the
spokesman said, extra beds must be
kept off the market.
