Fire Chief Arthur Stauch gem-i
ployed 35 fire fighters and sevenv
pieces of equipment to fight ther
blaze. Firemen stationed on aerialt
ladders as well as on the ground
poured water on the burning roof.
Chief Stauch estimated that one
million gallons of water were used
to drown the fire, and in many
lower floor rooms later, this water
was one foot in depth.
The street and sidewalks around
the building were still cordoned
off yesterday afternoon by police
because officers at the scene said,
pieces of the structure were falling
to the street.

Municipal Court, for which the
building was named, moved to
Ann Arbor City Hall several years
ago. At one time the structurea
contained the Masonic Temple and
the Ann Arbor Savings Bank.

Garris, a local attorney who ran
for mayor last spring and was de-
feated, claimed that he lost "23
years of work" in the fire. His

The second recommendation -
the mandatory fee-promises to
be more potentially explosive. Stu-
dents have in the past reacted
strongly against imposed fees-
such as the $5 assessment to pay
for Crisler Arena.
The present fee structure also
provides an obstacle to such an
assessment. While many univer-
sities have specific fees for certain
services, students here pay a lump
sum - tuition - which includes
Certain fees-such as the one-
time refundable bookstore fee, the
$16 football ticket charge, and
laboratory fees for certain science
and physical education courses-
are assessed in addition to tuition,
but not for every student every
.According to Knauss, however,
there may be an opposite trend-
towards separating the University
tuition fee into components. If
this is the case, the mandatory
health service fee could be the
first step towards that system.
The present health insurance
scheme is a third obstacle to im-
plementing this fee. SGC current-
ly arranges a student health in-
surance policy based upon the
Health Service fee scale.
About 40 per cent of -University
students subscribe to this plan, ac-
cording to SGC Executive vice-
,president Jerry Rosenblatt. He
conjectured that the other 60 per
cent of the students were covered
by their. parents' or their own pri-
vate health insurance plans and
would thus object to being as-
sessed a mandatory health service
fee which would not benefit them
to any great extent.
Present Health Service funding

versity's general fund. About $15

taken from student fees each term,

tional revenues bring in another
Health Service's pro-rated cost
for 1969-70 was $21.75 per student
term, according to the planning
committee's report. Costs are dif-
ficult to analyze, however, since
some services are provided free,
while other services; such as the
gynecology, allergy, or dentistry
clinics charge fees.
The usual charge for a visit to
any of the specialty clinics is, $5,
which under the mandatory fee
plan, would be eliminated. SGC
health insurance presently covers
some of these specialty clinic visits
at a per-student cost of $48 an-
nually. Student families are also
eligible for insurance under SGC
rules, whereas their eligibility un-
der the report's guidelines is un-

Another plan considered "of in-
terest" in the report is Yale Uni-
versity's recently instituted com-
prehensive health care plan, which
includes the entire Yale commun-
ity, and which could cost some-
what more than $20 per student
A problem in implementing such
a plan here is the University com-
munity's huge size-estimated by

decided that total campaign spend-
ing for each presidential candidate
could not exceed a limit of $100
for any reason.
The experience of last year's
campaign seems to indicate that
it will be more difficult to get
away with overspending violations.
Presidential candidate Bill Thee
at that time was fined $80.64 for
campaign spending exceeding the
maximum set by SGC in the elec-
"Bill Thee in any other year
could have gotten away with what
he wanted," Wilson said. "He may
have been challenged, but nothing
could have been proved."
Former election director Victor
Gutman said that confidence in
C&R has increased because of its
more active role in investigating
and redressing recent election vio-
C&R this year has not yet had
to face the types of major elec-
tion problems which have been
encountered in the past-and elec-
tions take place Nov. 16 and 17.
After three sessions, C&R ruled
to leave the form of the ballot un-
changed, denying an appeal asking
that periods be inserted in an ab-
breviated name on the ballot.
But although nothing major has
come up yet, committee member
Jeff Lewin said, "the crucial is-
sues of campaign spending and
election violations probably won't
surface until early next week."
Another procedural p r o b le m
which has plagued previous elec-
tions is the opportunity for "stuff-
ing the ballot."
One former SGC vice presiden-
tial candidate stated that SGC
elections were once "nothing more
than contests between who could
stuff the most ballots."
The same observer, however,
said of the present election situa-
tion that the elimination of hand-
counted ballots "had severely lim-
ited the ability of elections to be
One of the m.ethods of "stuffing"
which has not yet been resolved
concerns the marking of voters' ID
cards. Under the present system,
each student's card is marked with
a felt-tip pen when he votes. Un-
fortunately, such a mark can be
easily erased, allowing any student
to vote more than once.
Suggestions on how to settle this
question have ranged from mailed
ballots to embossing the ID cards
the way the University does when
a student registers, but the old
method remains, at least for this
Tampering with ballots by per-
sons staffing poll booths has long
been a bone of contention among
candidates and a hindrance to the
election procedure. Last March's
presidential election, however, wit-
nessed active poll watching by
both the political left and s.he right.
