LSA-SG insists Regents
obey Open Meetin~gs Act

The Michigan Daily-Thursday, March 22, 1979-Page 9
City propert tax
policy invalidated

By ADRIENNE LYONS
The Literary College Student Gover-
nment (LSA-SG) last night passed a
resolution demanding that the Univer-
sity Regents "not subvert-the Open
Meetings Act again," and urged the
Regents to place the divestment issue
on its April agenda.
It was alleged by protesters at last
week's Regents' meetings that a
restraining order allowing the Board to
meet behind closed doors violated the
act. The official group named in the or-
der, the Washtenaw County Coalition
Against Apartheid (WCCAA), is
presently challenging the restraining
order in court.
THE RESOLUTION, introduced by
Patti and
group give
stunning

Radio," which ran right into a hopping
"My Generation." Then came the
reggae-inspired "Kimberly," and one
of her finest rock 'n' roll tunes, "Pum-
ping (My Heart)." Lenny Kaye sang an
old rockabilly tune, Patti sang
"Frederic" again, and then the band
turned their instruments up loud and
played scorching versions of "25th
Floor" and "Because The Night."
"This -song is dedicated to my
clarinet teacher, Fred "Sonic" Smith,"
she said, before stepping into a truly
sincere version of "Tomorrow" from
Annie. "This is a sing-along song," she
said, "although you don't have to if you
don't want to." It was "Wooly Bully,"
which, as you might remember, Steve
Forbert also did.
Richard Sohl kept trying to start
"Gloria," but Patti waved her arms
and yelled "no, no!" each time. She
sang an extended "Rock 'n' roll
- Nigger," complete with long guitar
solos by Kaye and herself, and then
finally gave into Sohl's urge. Referring
to the "Jesus died for somebody's sins,
but not mine" line that opens the song,
Smith said, "I like to read the Bible but
it reminds me of the Bell Telephone
Christmas specials. I keep saying I've
seen this before on TV."
In all, Patti Smith played for well
over two hours, which is the longest I've
seen her go. The evening ended on a
perfect note, as someone inside
Schoolkids' Records had turned on
"Safe European Home"' by the Clash.
Now, my dream bill was finally com-
plete.
DAY HIKING
MADE EASY
Bivouac's Day Packs are
made of tough waterproof cor-
dura, featuring zipper compart-
ment and adjustable straps.
Another day pack is for
Cameras. It's foam padded
and has a zippered comport-
ment for film. You shouldn't

have to worry about the weight
of pack, just what you're put-
ting in it.
Our Mountain Parkas are
made of tough 65/35 polyes-
ter and cotton. They're double-
layered, wind tight and water
repelent. Just the thing to
break the chill. Great for bik-
ing, touring or around town.

council member Bruce Kozarsky, also
urged the Senate Advisory Committee
on Financial Affairs to complete its
report reviewing the University's in-
vestment policies in South Africa by the
April-meeting.
LSA-SG members reaffirmed their
support of University divestment in the
resolution and condemned a resolution
by the Senate Assembly criticizing the
200 students who disrupted the Regents'
meeting.
The group passed another resolution
last night urging the LSA Governing
Faculty not to change the number of
members needed at its meetings for a
quorum. The Governing Faculty is con-
sidering this action because of a lack in
attendance among members.

By KEVIN ROSEBOROUGH
Ann Arbor's policy of assessing
property taxes over a two-year cycle
has been ruled invalid by Michigan At-
torney General Frank Kelley.
In an opinion sent to State Represen-
tative Roy Smith of Saline, Kelley
stated that "when a city increases or
decreases 40 per cent of property
without reviewing the remaining 60 per
cent of the property, the procedure is
invalid."
CURRENTLY, THE city has
ressessed about half of the taxable
properties in Ann Arbor this year, and
will reevaluate the worth of the
remaining properties next year. There
has been an average increase of about

25 per cent in the valuation of the
roughly 12,000 properties that have
been reviewed this year.
Kelley's ruling is expected to force a
confrontation at the next City Council
meeting April 5, when citizens and
some councilpersons are, likely, to
challenge the current procedure. This
year's assessment update covers most
of the residential property west of Main
Street. Most commercial and industrial
property is surveyed every year.
