State Rep. Perry Bullard (D-Ann Arbor) has pro-
posed a bill that would require gas stations to
fully disclose in advertising the total price of gas
as posted on the pumps. In presenting the bill,
Bullard argued that often times the station owners
post prices which do not include tax or are out-
dated - practices that inhibit comparison shop-
ping. "It's simply another form of misleading, de-
ceptive advertising," Bullard said.
Auto mishap
On Friday, City Councilman James Kenworthy
(D-Fourth Ward) struck and fatally injured a man
while driving near his home. Since then he has
"been in a state of emotional shock," according
to a statement released by a personal friend. Lo-
cal police, absolved Kenworthy of any liability in
the accident. Police identified the dead man as
Edward Munson, a neighbor of Kenworthy's.
Beetle battle
Senator Robert Griffin (R-Mich.) has asked the
Ford Administration to investigate charges that
Volkswagen may be violating U.S. law by the
prices it charges for cars sold in this country.
Griffin cited newspaper accounts which stated that
the West German auto maker was selling some of
its cars in the United States at prices lower than
those in Germany. Such "dumping" could be a
violation of U. S. law if it is determined that a
domestic industry is being injured by the practice.

WIN loses
President Gerald Ford's Whip Inflation Now
(WIN) campaign has bitten the dust rather than
the bullet. The program, announced last fall, has
been dismantled. "We were going to build a pro-
gram and then the President would announce it,"
said Sylvia Porter head of Ford's Citizens' Action
Committee. "But the President announced it first
we were left with the job of building an air-
plane in the air." She added that "WIN is dead as
a button and an acronym . . . God bless it."
Kidding around
Durga Ji, the wife of religious leader Guru Ma-
haraj Ji, has given birth to a girl, a spokesperson
for the Divine Light Mission reported Sunday. The
parents chose the name Premlata, which means
"Vine of Love" for the eight-pound, eight-ounce
child. Mother and daughter were described as do-
ing well. Maharaj Ji, 17, and the former Marilyn
Johnson of San Diego were married May 20, 1974.

Governor William Milliken has decided not to
cut University appropriations an additional two
per cent for the current fiscal year ending June
30, 1975 as was announced late last month.
Instead, the University will likely receive the
cut for fiscal year 1975-76-anywhere from "zero
to two per cent," according to Gerald Miller,
Milliken's director of intergovernmental relations
and special units.
COUPLED WITH Milliken's earlier intentions
of cutting next year's appropriations by four per
cent, the additional cuts could mean a total cut
of six per cent or nearly $6 million in lost
revenues to the University.
"Any additional cuts this year would cause
some very serious problems and hardships,"
Miller said, explaining the state's turnabout.

The University, however, may have convinced
the state to delay the cut until next year, accord-
ing to 'U' officials, as they have already spent
much of this year's appropriations and would be
hard pressed to find the funds necessary to con-
tinue normal operations had the two per cent
cut been implemented.
"THIS WAY (delaying the cut) the University
will have some advance warning and will be
able to plan accordingly," he concluded. Miller
is presently "in review" with Milliken and said
the final decision will come late this week.
Echoing Miller, Vice President for State Re-
lations and Secretary of the University Richard
Kennedy commented, "They came to the con-
clusion that it would be next to impossible to cut
the appropriations this late in the year."
VICE PRESIDENT for Academic Affairs Frank
I -----



Rhodes last night qualified Kennedy's statement,
saying that the hiring freeze is still on "for the
time being."
Rhodes declined further comment, however,
concerning a University Record report that
quoted him saying, "Freeze guidelines will con-
tinue, and it could be some time before 'further
internal decisions' are made."
"Further internal decisions are those which
will help us get through this year," Rhodes said.
He wouldn't say exactly what the decisions were
nor when they would be made.
PRESUMABLY, the "internal decisions" in-
clude a set of five proposed guidelines presented
to the Regents at their February meeting to deal
with the cut. They were: a hiring freeze, a freeze
on construction financed from the general fund,
a freeze on equipment purchases, a stringent re-
s reach1

fund cut
view by each department of its expenses charge-
able to the general fund and a deferment of
"selected expenditures in non-instructional activi-
ties such as research and housing."
Rhodes, while continuing to express hope that
the University will pull through the budget prob-
lems, would not venture a guess on the future
of the University's Pilot Program.
Upon hearing Milliken's decision, Jim Wein-
stein, a student member on the University's
Budget Priorities Committee, said, "That's really
bad news-they should have done it (made the
cut) this year."
"It (the cut for next year) will end up being
six per cent," Weinstein speculated. He could
not, however, say what additional service cuts
the University will have to make to meet the
six per cent figure.

Reprisal issue remanAns unresolved

GEG NEGOTIATORS caucus at a bargaining se ssion yesterday evening. They are, from left to
right, Bob Kushler, Sandy Wilkinson, Michele Hoyman, Jack Wileden, Gail Ruben and Mark Kap-
lan. A tentative agreement was reached last night.

The w e a r y bargaining
teams for the University
and the Graduate Em-
p 1 o y e s' Organization
(GEO) reached a tentative
agreement on a contract
package last night, but
stopped just short of a to-
tal settlement.
The only remaining dis-
agreement concerns a non-
contractual Issue: admin-
istration policy t o w a r d
striking GEO members and
undergraduates who sup-
ported the walkout.
Though both sides say they
are desperately anxious to
resolve this last dispute in or-
der to bring the four-week-old
strike to an end, the GEO de-
clared its firm intention to re-
main on strike until the Uni-
versity at least makes a state-
ment of policy that no aca-
demic or employment reprisals
will be taken against GEO
members or other supporters of
the walkout.
"We feel this is a pre-condi-
tion for any kind of agreement
on a contract," insisted GEO
spokesman David Gordon late
last night. "In an academic
environment if you get screwed
in a situation like this your
whole life can be affected. It
can mean peoples' careers," he
THE TWO sides will meet at
8:30 this morning in an effort
to resolve the dispute.
A mass meeting of the GEO
membership at 10:00 a.m. in the
Union Ballroom will make a
decision on how to proceed.
Should an agreement be reach-
ed the GEO stewards are likely
to recommend that a three-day
ratification vote be taken. If
not, the strike will continue.
The major issues of wages,
agency shop, and "grievability
of employment fractions" were
solved in intensive negotiations
over the weekend.
After eight months of nego-
tiations and two and a half
weeks of a strike, the parties
reached a final impasse on
March 1 and agreed to submit

the agency shop and grievance
disputes to the consideration

PHNOM PENH, Cambodia (A
-In their biggest barrage in a
week, insurgent gunners fired
56 artillery rounds and rockets
into Phnom Penh's vital air field
yesterday, damaging two do-
mestic commercial airliners and
killing five persons and wound-
ing 22, military sources said.
But the U.S. airlift of ammuni-
tion, fuel and rice continued into
the air field throughout the day
and none of its aircraft was hit,
preliminary reports said. Over
700 tons of supplies were flown
in, the biggest quantity since the
operation was curtailed last
IN PHNOM Penh itself, in-
surgent gunners fired 13 rockets
into the northern and southern
parts of the city during the day,
killing three persons and wound-
ing seven, authorities said.
Meanwhile, in Washington a
policy vote that could determine
whether emergency miliitary
aid for Cambodia will be ap-
proved by the House was sched-
uled by Democrats yesterday
for tomorrow morning.
White House Press Secretary
Ron Nessen said Cambodia has
a "reasonable chance" of sur-
viving until the spring rainy
season if Congress approves
military aid.

Nessen also told newsmen the
U.S. government feels the Cam-
bodians must decide for them-
selves whether to keep Presi-
dent Lon Nol in office.
SENATE Republican Leader
Hugh Scott had said earlier that
America should immediately
exert whatever pressure is need-
ed to secure a change in Cam-
bodian government leadership.
The House Democrats are to
vote at a special caucus called
for tomorrow morning on a
resolution opposing any further
U.S. military aid to either Cam-
bodia or South Vietnam.
A heavy Democratic policy
vote against the military aid
would end any hope of House
approval of it. A close vote
would give the aid a chance for
House approval.
THE REBEL shelling of
Phnom Penh airport was the
heaviest in a week-long cam-
paign of intensified fire against
the field, the capital's only link
with the outside world. It was
also the first time that most of
the incomingarounds-40-came

of the American noblic onposes the Ford adminis-
tration's pronosal to send an extra $522 million in
military aid to Indochina. In a survey of 1,556 per-
sons. 12 ner cent were in favor of sending the aid
and the remaining 10 ner cent exnressed no orin-
ion. A Gallin renresentative said opposition to
Ford's aid nlan was basedt primarily on "fear of
re-invoh~ement on a major scale" in Southeast
Asia fighting.
