GIBSON, whose campaign

man, Darragh was told that
all available commercial air-

Darragh and approximately!
30 members of the Airline Em-

an ad-hoc group of Eastern Air-

commercial flight from an as
yet undetermined city to Sai-

An Loc orphans sometime this

all goes according to plan, the

the principal drafter of the pro-

"What they're saying is that
there'll be a time when 98.3 per

Vietnamese government.,

were an incorporated organiza-,

recover the Hoi Duc Anh chil- I
dren are relatively new, we
have not had time to incorpor-

problems," he said.
In addition to aiding An Loca
Inc. in recovering the orphans,
AIA has, over the past several
days, been stockpiling baby
food, clothing, medicine and
blankets which they hope to
airlift into Saigon. Nancy Fox,.

one of the founders of AIA said
that supplies from ten central
locations in the Detroit metro-
politan area, said the provi-
sions will be transported to a
warehouse in Pontiac pending
its transport to Saigon.
"We are determined," said
Fox, "to get those supplies there
one way or the other."

that he was uncertain about the
origin of his group's flight to
Saigon, but indicated "every

Charter Amendment "A" could
cause problems for renters.
You can be quite certain of that.
It would create a rent control
board of 5 "fireproof" individ-
uals who's word would be law.
According to the Amendment this
board could decide what is
"reasonable" in many situations.
Reasonable to whom?
To themselves. That's whom.
There is even a passage in the
amendment that forbids you to
appeal their decisions to a
court of law.

The Amendment would give the
.board unlimited blank check
access to funds from the City
of Ann Arbor.
Can you believe it?
Well, it's all right there in
the thousands of words of Char-
ter Amendment "A" - along
with a provision that even
makesyou a "Landlord" under
certain conditions.
Note this: if you wanted to
sublet your apartment-- even
for just a few months -you'd
have to pay a fee to the board

and wait for the board to figure
how much rent you can charge.
(Under the bill, there are just
5 people to review allthe rents
for 17,000 rental units in
Ann Arbor. Your "wait" might
last for several weeks.)
Clearly, Charter Amendment "A"
would create more problems than
it would solve. It would even
create a shortage of apartments
just as rent control has done
in Cambridge, Mass., Boston and
any other city where it has
been tried.
It isn't right for renters in
