Crimies againstl
persons (lown.
By WILLIAM LILLVIS
Significant c h a n g e s have
occurred in the patterns and
volumes of criminal warrants
issued in Washtenaw County,
according to a report on crim-
inal authorizations released
by the county prosecutors of-
fice.
1An authorization is the legalj
term for permission to charge a
person with a crime.
Comparing 1971 with 1970, these
statistics reveal a 23 per cent in-
crease this year in felonies across
the country with a 38 per cent in-
crease for Ann Arbor.
The majority of these warrants
were for "crimes against property"
while "crimes against persons"
have decreased sharply. Although:
the figures represent authoriza-
tions only, County Prosecutor Wil-
liam Delhey pointed out. "No
doubt the number of authoriza-
tions does bear a relationship to
the volume of crime in any specific
category."

N. Ireland hit
by continuing
strife, turmoil
BELFAST, Northern Ireland (R) - Violence, death and
protest gripped divided Ireland yesterday as guerrillas re-
taliated for the victims of Londonderry's "Bloody Sunday." A
sniper killed a British soldier and a Belfast woman was
gravely wounded in cross-fire.
.. Strikes and boycotts throughout Ulster and the Irish
republic to the south spearheaded a surge of anger by Roman
Catholics mourning the 13 who died in the Londonderry
clash between civilians and British troops.
The republic's prime minister, Jack Lynch, demanded
that Britain pull its troops out of heavily populated Catholic
areas in the North and end internment without trial.
In Dublin, capital of the republic, an explosive device
shattered windows in the Bri-
tish Embassy. Police said sev- S
eral persons were believed in- ufi
jured. Two thousand demon-
strators marched on the Em-
bassy, burning a flag and
mock coffins and lobbing
bricks and fire bombs over the
heads of police."

PICTURED is one of the University's many researchers. Cuts in
research funds, however, may soon render him a Reduction in
Force (RIF) victim.
'U' research fund
Cut results in ,RIF
By ROBERT BARKIN
"I've known since I came to the University that my job was
contingent on research funding. The first contract I worked on
was for two and a half years, and I didn't know if we would get
new ones after it was completed. But we did . . . until now."
The experience of this 25 year veteran researcher at the Uni-
versity is an unpleasant one. He is about to be 'laid off by the
University because the funding for the research he was doing is
being terminated. In about one month the University's Personnel
Office will classify this non-academic technician as a "reduction
in force," (RIF').
That 41 of his colleagues in research projects have also been
laid off since last October brings little solace to him. To these men
and women another job prospect would be the best news they
could hear.
Surprisingly, most of these RIFs seem to accept their situa-
tion. "It was clear many months ahead of time that the situa-
tion was tight," said another researcher.
"I had hoped that the proposais would keep going, but when it
turned out that they would not, the manager had to lay off some-
one," he added. "That's the way the ball bounces.'
The money that employed these people comes from the research
budget, which involves University contracts with outside sources
such as NASA or the Department of Defense. But lately the Uni-
versity has been having difficulty in obtaining these funds.
The problem of layoffs from research not being renewed." ac-
cording to Richard Daggett of Personnel, "is new in the last three
to four years. Until then federal research was at a high level, not
like we are now."

New Daily Senior Editors na

The Senior Editors of T h e
Daily have announced the ap-
pointment of 13 Senior Editors
for 1972-73. The appointments will
be effective Feb. 20.
The new senior staff has as-
sumed management of the pap-
er but will work under the direc-
tion of the outgoing Senior Edi-
tors for the next three weeks.
Alan Lenhoff, a journalism ma-
jor from Southfield, was named
Editor. Lenhoff will supervise
the 50-member editorial staff
which produces the news, editor-
ial and arts pages of The Daily.
Coordinating the day-to-day
operations of the paper will be

District Court last Jan. 21. This
term implies that neither party
has assumed guilt in the case.

a history major from Pawtucket,

Editor Pat Bauer, a psychol-

Appointed Editorial Page Edi-
tors were Lindsay Chaney, an
economics major from Ann Ar-
bor, Mark Diller., a Russian
studies major from Detroit, and
Arthur Lerner, a sociology maj-
or from Toledo, Ohio.

plan. The new suit will also cov-
er the University's alleged vio-
lations of Phase II of Nixon's
economic plan.
In addition, the source said,
the new suit will name plaintiffs
from every University residence
hall.
According to the source, TU
had earlier requested a rul-
ing from the Internal Revenue
Service (IRS) which had re-
fused to rule in the case. He
said the case might have been
settled out of court if the IRS
had decided against the Univer-
sity.
"The only way to force (the
University) to pay is to take the
case to court," the source said.
TU filed its first suit against
the University last Sept. 27. The
action called for a court in-
junction preventing the Univer-
sity from further collection of
increased rents.
They are seeking the full pen-
alty of $5 000 for each tenant,
adding up to approximately
$60,000,000.
University officials a r g u e
that the rent increases were
lawful because payment on
housing deposits had begun be-
fore the freeze was initiated last
Aug. 14.
TU plans to issue a detailed
statement on the latest court
action tomorrow.
The Tenants Union was or-
ganized early in 1969 to protest
housing conditions in the city.
One of TU's first actions was to
organize a rent strike w h i c h
grew to be the largestwin the

Meanwhile the Irish Republic's
foreign minister, Patrick Hillery,
hinted, on arriving in New York
for talks with U.S. and United
Nations officials, that the repub-
lic might have to remove British
soldiers from Northern Ireland.
Charging the British w i t h
"practicing war," Hillery said he
would ask U.N. officials to use
"their own good offices in bring-
ing about a solution ..."
Hillery did not say Ireland
was ready to use troops to drive
the British out of Northern Ire-
land. He said it would take an
act of Parliament to arm his
country. But he added: "If Britain
is not visited by sanity, we are
dedicated to getting them out."
Northern Ireland's Prime Min-
ister, Brian Faulkner, charged the
republic with using a distress fund
set up two years ago for Catho-
lics in the north to "buy guns for
murderers."
The British government named
the nation's top judge, Lord Chief
Justice Sir John Widgery, to un-
dertake an inquiry into the Lon-
donderry killings.
The British soldier's death was
seen as a reprisal by the outlawed
Irish Republican Army (IRA)
which swore Sunday to kill a sol-
dier for each of the Londonderry
dead.
His death' brought the toll since
August, 1969 to 233. He was the
third soldier killed this year.

The Tappan Jr. High School
Student Union, a group of students
who seek to oust the present stu-
dent council, yesterday filed suit
against the principal and assistant
principal for "unlawfully and un-
reasonably interfering with forma-
tion" of the union.
The suit also charges that assist-
ant principal Duane Peterson as-
saulted student union member
David Kaimowitz.
Tappan's student union is part
of a larger movement on the part
of the Ann Arbor Youth Liberation,
a group of about 35 young people,
to organize high school unions
throughout the city.
Calling for such reforms as stu-
dent-teacher equality, a student
decision-making voice, and an end
to the tracking system, the union
has clashed with the school ad-
ministration in its efforts to meet
on school grounds during school
hours and in its attempt to replace
the Tappan student council.
Administrators have denied re-
quests for meeting times for the
union.
According to union members,
Peterson struck Kaimowitz for re-
fusing to tell students to disband
an unauthorized union meeting.
Peterson said last night that the
allegations of his striking a student
were untrue.
