Onward and upward
University Regent Deane Baker (R-Ann Arbor)
apparently has higher ambitions than merely serv-
ing the state witout pay. A press release sent to
our office claims that Baker "has been named in
published news reports as a possible Republican
candidate for the U, S. Senate in 1976." Reading
between the thinly disguised lines Baker is after
the post, although the release goes on to claim
he's not a candidate for any political office. Not
Towerinig inferno
The city almost had its towering inferno yester-
day when a fire swept through several floors of
the Ann Arbor Inn. Four people were hospitalized
for smoke inhalation, burns, and cuts. The fire
started in a corner room on the seventh floor, and
though most of the damage was confined to that
area, several rooms were gutted and the entire
floor is unusable. Also, two elevators were put out
of commission, and the eighth and sixth floors are
slightly damaged. The cause of the blaze is still
being investigated.
Print out
It was a case of 24-hour censorship. When a
group of law students last weekend asked the Uni-
versity Cellar to reproduce leaflets concerning a
lettuce boycott, some employes there refused to
cooperate, because they disagreed with the anti-
boycott tone of the material. Miffed by this ob-
stacle, the students took their business elsewhere,
but came back the next day. This time, they asked
the Cellar to run off copies of a statement blasting
the store's policies. An apologetic manager, how-
ever, explained that the employes' actions had, in-
deed, violated the store's real policy of printing
anything its customers want. "We don't get into
judgments as to what we can sell and what we
can't," he said, "unless there are legal problems."
Countered print shop employe Mark Gold, "I
wouldn't want my labor to be used to hurt an-
other laborer."
Big buck news
Even though times are tough, financial aid, es-
pecially that for minority students, will be avail-
able at the University at pre-budget cut levels
through the spring half-term. Associate Vice Presi-
dent for Academic Affairs Richard English, who is
responsible for student financial aid said, "The
University budget cuts which are now under con-
sideration for fiscal 1975-76 are not being applied
to the current budget allocation for financial aid
to students, including minorities." He added that a
review of the Office of Minority Affairs at the
Rackham Graduate School is currently under way
to "improve the delivery of services in the finan-
cial aids area to minority students at the Graduate
School." He stressed the review "is not designed
to cut the funds available for minority student fi-
nancial aid."

Sources within the inner circles of the Uni-
versity and the GEO (Graduate Employes Or-
ganization) revealed last night that the Univer-
sity has barely budged on its economic offer
since negotiations between the two parties moved
behind closed doors last weekend.
"Then University has not moved at all on
economics for 1974-75 and has made but very
little movement for 1975-76," said the GEO
source, who is close to the bargaining.
"IN GENERAL that's true," confirmed the
University official. "One of the things is there's
just no money for this year. In general we aren't
very damn far apart. Affirmative action was
solved days ago. There are some darn hard
nuts 'to crack. One of them is money and an-
other is class size, and agency shop may be
hard too."
The University source referred to the GEO

demand for a limit in discussion sections of
twenty-five students, and their demand for an
agency shop clause, which provides for the pay-
ment of a service fee to the GEO from all non-
The affirmative action proposal was one which
called for the University to raise the staff popu-
lations of blacks, women, Chicanos, and Native
Americans to the corresponding populations of
these groups in the state.
BEFORE THE weekend, the University had
proposed a four percent average salary increase
effective September, 1975 or a raise equal to
that of the faculty, whichever is greater. They
also offered to freeze the tuition rate for all
GSAs (Graduate Student Assistants) working ten
or more hours per week.
In contrast, the GEO had demanded a five per

cent raise effective January, 1975, and a fur
seven per cent raise for the 1975-76 year. 'I
also proposed a fee of $200 in lieu of tuition.

NEW YORK (IP) - President
Ford accused the Democratic-
controlled Congress yesterday
of threatening "to bring our
successful foreign policy to a
standstill" and contributing to
a breakdown of agreements with
the Soviet Union.

jor foreign policy address, de-

impairs relations with Turkey,
an "indiscriminate and hasty
act" damaging ties with Ecua-

Ford called on Congress to re-

marked American foreign poli-

War II.

Turkey be terminated," the
President charged.
"This action," he went on,
"I am convinced is a self-in-

flicted wound - it will serious-
ly impair our relations with a
valued ally and achieve no
benefit whatever."
Congress also jeopardized the
benefits promised from the
1974 Trade Act by attaching
"an unfortunate amendment"
penalizing several friendly na-
tions, he said.

'U' students discover summer
employment market drying up

For the past three summers
Jeff has been a short order cook
at the racetrack.
This year he decided to try
something different and began
looking for civil service jobs,
park, forestry, department
store jobs - "anything and
everything but factories cause
they're all laying off."

HE FINALLY decided this
was a bad year to be picky
and went back to re-apply at
the old hot dog stand. But it's
closed and racing has been
cancelled this summer.
He's been looking for other
cook jobs since before Christ-

While all the good jobs dis-

even the old midnight shifts at

to be drying up well ahead of

reer Planning and Placement
Office. "And Cedar Point is

In the past most of the peo-

for camp, waitress, resort or

somewhere between $350 and
$1,000 a summer.
