maintained because of rumors that
other students would try to crash the
line early on Monday morning.
"I've been checking in for two days,"
said Greg Rosenquist, late Sunday
night. "We're trying to organize it and
so far, it is going O.K."
TWO MEN arrived at the front desk
of Markley at 3:00 a.m. while the other
students were asleep, They refused to
add their names to the list despite the
arguments of the organized students.
Officer Kemperman of Housing
Security called Leroy Williams,
building director at 7:00 a.m. Kemper-
man described the situation as
"reasonably orderly until early this
morning."
After speaking with Williams, both
men agreed to comply with the student-
organized list. "I just asked them to
cooperate with their peers," said
Williams.

the type expected when discussing
sewage.;"I've heard of those meters,
and they get full of stuff I probably
shouldn't talk about," the councilman
said..
Councilman Louis Senunas (R-Third
Ward) expressed concern that Ann Ar-
bor would not be receiving its money's

worth of sewage services under the
pact. Since the township would be
paying only 103 per cent as much as the
city. Later the councilman commented,
however, "I don't suppose those folks
(in Scio Township) are any different -
they don't take more showers or
anything."

Council approves 'U'

and March, 1977. Those talks ultimately
broke down and led to a 26-day strike.
Many non-economic points are still
being discussed and there has been lit-
tle discussion on the economic
proposals. However, the union leader-
ship is still optimistic that an
agreement satisfactory to both sides
will be reached in the near future.
In its initial economic proposal to the
University, the union is seeking an
average first-year raise of 75 cents per
hour for each of the 12 wage
classifications within the union. The
union is also asking for an immediate 50
cent per hour cost-of-living increase,
with a one cent per hour increase each
time the cost-of-living index rises
thereafter. The employees have had no
cost-of-living adjustment in their pay
since the last contract, according to
union leaders.
THE UNIVERSITY team, led by per-
sonnel administrator John Forsyth, has
made an initial wage increase offer of
about 40'cents per-hour, the member-
ship was told, but there was no cost-of-
living. increase included in this
proposal.
The union has also asked for six ad-
ditional holidays in this contract: Mar-
tin Luther King's, Lincoln's, and
Washington's birthdays, Columbus
Day, Veterans Day, and Christmas
Eve. Other proposals include adjust-
ments in workers' compensation, the
retirement and disability plans, funeral
and sick leaves, and pension pay.
One of the non-economic proposals
sought by the union is increased ac-
cessibility to work sites by union of-
ficials investigating 'employee
problems. Under the present contract,
these officials must be accompanied by
a personnel staff member when they
visit the problem site. The union feels
some ,of these problems, like late
payment of union dues, "are none of the
University's business," according to
one union bargainer, and is seeking to
eliminate the presence of the personnel
staffer.
AFSCME is also asking for the

project, which would replace the ap-
proximately 50 year old facility, con-
demned even by the hospital's directors
and doctors.
Problems cited by patients and staff
alide range from filth to patient neglect
to violation of state safety and
sanitation codes. Hospital director Jep-
tha Dalston has declared he fears the
building is becoming less safe every
day.
Construction of a new facility would
run $245 million, most of these to be

establishment of safety steward
positions on the Flint, Dearborn, and
Ann Arbor campuses. These persons
would be updated on all Occupational
Safety and Health Administration
(OSHA) laws and other-health and
safety regulations. These persons
would also handle all grievances
dealing with health-related matters.
OTHER NON-ECONOMIC proposals
include the length of employment of
temporary help, the status- of
probationary employees, and posting of
materials on union bulletin boards
around the campus.
The University team received the
union's economic proposals last Thur-
sday and presented the union its coun-
terproposals Friday afternoon. The
next step in the negotiation process, ac-
cording to a top union official, is to
begin discussion on these two sets of
requests in a meeting scheduled for this
afternoon.
If a tentatiely-agreed upon contract is
not reached by the end of the 15-day ex-
tension, the union bargaining team will
bring a new proposal back to the full
membership for their approval.
The present union ledership seems
determined not to lose money in this set
of talks with the University. Two years
ago, when the local went on strike
during contract negotiations, they
received only a 5-cent per hour increase
and lost an average of over $600 per
employee during the 26-day walkout.

supplied by Michigan taxpayers. The
state legislature has allotted $500,000
for planning studies, and, according to
the University, Gov. William Milliken
has pledged $200 million in state aid to
be subject to approval by the
legislature.
The project is cited for completion in
1985, at which time the current struc-
ture is scheduled for demolition.
Also included in the plans are the
renovation of old St. Joseph's Hospital
building - vacated after a new facility
was constructed outside city limits -
on the Children's. Psychiatric and
Women's Hospital and extension of
present parking facilities. State public
hearings on the project are scheduled
for next month.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP)-Munici-
pal Judge Leonard Hughes Jr. scanned
the traffice ticket of an elderly, man
recently and said, "You're in the magic
cirle. No fine, just the points."
With that, the man was directed out
of the main door of the courtroom,
penalgty points having been assessed
against his license but his wallted no

The "magic chircle?"
"Yeah," Hughes explained during
a recess. "I don't fine anyone over 65.
Not after all they've done for the com-

aims to"end
write rs' woes
By DAVID WAHR
Behind a large gray desk sit political
science student Beth Lori and English
instructor Barbey Daugherty. Before
them is a handwritten rough draft of a
paper comparing the party identities of
Great Britain and France. The paper
has been troublesome for Lori and she
hs come to the LSA Writing Workshop,
and Daugherty, for help.
Lori reads the paper aloud while
Daugherty listens, stopping Lori when
she hits a rough spot in the writing.
Together they work out the fine points
of the paper, straighten out confusing
phrases, and perfect transitional sen-
tences.
"TRUST YOURSELF," says
Daugherty throughout the session,
"you can make this paper work."
Since it was founded three years ago,
by a faculty vote, the workshop has
provided a place for LSA students to get
help writing papers. Housed in a small,
yellow and pink-walled room on the
second floor of Haven Hall, the writing
workshop is sponsored by the Univer-
sity's English Composition Board
(ECB).
Because of increased student use, the
workshop will expand itsdprogram, and
move to larger facilities at the end of
the term.
THE NUMBER of workshop instruc-
tors will increase from six to eight and
it will be open 60 hours per week instead
of the current 40.
The workshop will also expand its
facilities to include a library, conferen-
ce room, and an area for individual in-
struction. Work crews are now com-
pleting renovation of the workshops'
new room at 1025 Angell Hall.
The workshop is open to all students
enrolled in LSA courses, and as a
result, its staff must help students write
papers on a wide variety of topics.
"IN TWO HOURS an instructor here
may work on a philosophy paper, an
English paper and a paper on Greek
tragedies," says Fran Zorn, associate
director of the ECB.
