Mayoral meanderings
To no one's surprise, the heated mayoral battle
between the city's Democrats and Republicans
has yet to be decided. In the election, Democrat
Albert Wheeler received 14,684 votes to James
Stephenson's 14,563 votes. Lawyers for both sides
have submitted legal briefs to Circuit Court Judge
James Fleming for review and an eventual ruling.
However, a spokeswoman for Fleming told the
Daily yesterday that "no timetable has been set for
a ruling, but call back on Monday." Little did she
know that the Daily stops publication after tomor-
row morning's edition.
And there's more...
While the controversy surrounding the April 7
mayoral election continues to grow, Republican
Mayor James Stephenson has released a statement
announcing the cancellation of this Moaday's City
Council meeting. "In as much as there are no
urgent items scheduled for April 21, and in as much
as there has been a plurality of requests to cancel
the meeting," the statement reads, Council ses-
sions will be postponed until April 28. Ironically
enough, Democrat introduced motions proposing
identical action were wholeheartedly denounced by
Republican Council members at last Monday's
session. Guess the GOP just wanted to 'have it
their way.'
Piping for Paul
The Pied Piper of Ann Arbor town appeared
mysteriously yesterday clad in a kilt and playing
his bagpipes between midnight and 1 a.m. yester-
day morning. The occasion? Why the 200th anniv-
ersary of Paul Revere's ride, of course. Tooting
away between South and West Quads with an au-
dience of over a hundred students, Paul Rosbolt
received standing ovations after his selections.
When asked why he gave the strange perform-
ance, someone interjected, "Oh, you know how
people are around exam time."

Having my baby

out my wife couldn't have children, I felt like kill-

in nine California newspapers. "I don't want to
meet the woman face to face, much less have sex-
ual relations with her," he said. He has an IQ in
the genius range and says the woman must be in
good health and "shouldn't have any serious in-

The University has abandoned plans to buy
private housing or build a new residence hall in
the coming year, President Robben Fleming an-
nounced at yesterday's Board of Regent's meet-
Also at the meeting, Regent Thomas Roach (D-
Grosse Pointe) claimed the Rate Study commit-
tee allegations of administrative waste within
the Housing office were false.
IN A private session held yesterday morning,
the administration asked the Regents for au-
thorization to study a site for the construction
of additional student housing. The plot of land,
situated on East University, is already Univer-
sity owned.
The administration had also been considering
buying the Ann Arbor Inn or the Green Briar
Apartments on Plymouth Rd., Fleming acknow-
backs out
John Reinertsen, the leading
contender for the vacant direc-
torship of University Hospital,
has withdrawn his name from
consideration for the post.
Reinertsen is the chief admin-
istrator of the University of.
Utah hospital at Salt Lake City.
DEAN OF Medicine John
Gronvall yesterday explained :x

drawing, "the state legislature
in Utah has just acted on an
expansion program at the (Uni-
versity of Utah) hospital. He's

However Fleming added, "On acquisition, they
(the Regents) were clearly negative, while on
additional building they were less certain."
THE REGENTAL decision means that the 5.7
million dollars appropriated by Housing Urban
Development (HUD) for additional housing will
no longer be available.
HUD stipulated that plans for construction of
additional housing had to be submitted by June
30 for the University to obtain the funds.
Fleming cited the University's inability to fi-
nance the project without "dorm rate increases,
a tuition increase . . . or diversion of some of our
earnings internally", needed for financial aid,
faculty pay and library improvements.

FLEMING added that the University has tra-
ditionally financed a third of the cost of build-
ing, from dorm fees or the remortgaging of al-
ready existing dorms. However, the fact that
residence halls will be operating at a loss next
year makes this form of financing impossible,
according to Fleming.
The Regents stated fears of overbuilding as the
other major factor in their decision. "I'm not at
all convinced that the demand will continue from
the students for additional dormitory space,"
said Regent Robert Nederlander (R-Birming-
Paul Brown (D-Petoskey) echoed his concern
saying, "We should have more than one year's
experience along this line (of more housing de-
mand) before we make a commitment."

"WE HAD a big non-problem--sort of like a
non-birthday party regarding the shortage of
housing," added Roach in stating his opposition
to the purchase or construction of more hous-
Agreeing that fall accommodations for the lot-
tery losers were "taken care of" by the conver-
sion of about 200 dorm rooms to triples, Fleming
stated that the proposal rejected by the Regents
was a longer range "attempt to expand our hold-
Although a study of the proposed site could
have prevented HUD from withdrawing their
funds without forcing the Regents to immediate-
ly commit themselves to building, the Regents,
according to Fleming, "thought we shouldn't
spend $15-20 thousand to make a study if the
sentiment would be we should not build."
