Schools lose
Unless they come up with some 80 more students, the
Ann Arbor schools will be out $250,000 in state aid this
year. Grants of state money are determined by-among.
other things-the size of the student body, and local
schools have fewer students enrolled than had been
expected. Chances of getting enrollment up to snuff by
the Sept. 28 deadline are "50-50" according to Asst.
Superintendent LeRoy Cappaert. Cappaert told The Daily
that the loss of $250,000 out of the expected $1,406,722 in
state aid would be a "significant" blow to the system.
A fair for all
Ann Arbor's first Multi-Ethnic Fair opens on the streets
downtown this morning and will run through Saturday.
The extravaganza-which will feature ethnic food, music,
dancing, fashion shows and other events-will include
entries from native American, Polish, Arab, Latvian, Es-
tonian, Chinese, Chicano, Ukranian, French, Lithuanian,
and German groups. Ann Arbor's population is 15 per
cent "foreign stock" - mostly9Englisli, Canadian, Ger-
man and Polish.
Corpse robbed
Sometime between one and nine a.m. yesterday a
diamond ring valued at more than $1,000 was yanked
off the finger of -a woman's body at University Hospital.
According to a hospital spokesman, the woman had died
during the early morning hours, and that at nine a.m.
the ring was discovered missing. The spokesman said
hospital security officers were making a routine inves-
tigation. He said that a large number of people have
access to the hospital's wards and that thefts are not

Although the people of Ann Ar-
bor as a community have grown
younger and more tenant - orient-
ed in the past decade, the new resi-
dents are not primarily students
but white collar workers.
The young people migrating to
Ann Arbor tend to desire a less
high pressure urban environment
than Detroit offers while persuing
job opportunities in the metropoli-
tan area. .
As a result, Acting Planning Di-
rector John Hyslop predicts the city
will take a turn towards becoming
a "bedroom community" - in
which people reside but work else-

yo ung
THE TREND marks a decided
de-emphasis of the University's in-
fluence on municipal development.
"Formerly the University, di-
rectly or indirectly, was responsi-
ble for Ann Arbor's development
throughout the city's history," says
Hyslop. "But the importance lev-
eled off during the 60's and has
now dissipated."
The city planning department re-
leased a report last week compar-
ing census data from 1960 and 1970
showing that a greater percentage
of local residents now fall in the
15-24 year old age group, rent liv-
ing space and pay more for that
space than ten years ago.
While the University played a


major roll in causing these demo-
graphic changes, its effect has
been far less profound as com-
pared to previous times. I
The report states Ann Arbor has
changed from a "small college
town" to a "bustling city." In the
last ten years, the city's popula-
tion has jumped nearly 50 per cent
to about 100,000.
PREVENTING the city from be-
ing swallowed up by the ever-ex-
panding Detroit metronolis, how-
ever, is the biggest problem facing
the planning department in the
coming decade, according to Hys-
"To a certain extent we can do

very little about the condition,"
Hyslop says. "Unfortunately the
planning department has little con-
trol over how areas outside the
city use their land."
Consequently Hyslop foresees
much more cooperation between
various municipal governments
aimed at regional control and land
Locally planning will be directed

HOUSING C 0 S T S, however,

may prove one of the most diffi-
cult hurdles to clear because of
the inflated value put on living
space in the city.
The report showed that local
rent is over 60 per cent higher
than thQ median rate across the
state and the market worth of
housing units also far exceeds the
state norm.
Primarily responsible for the
high price tag placed on housing
is the extremely low vacancy rate,
meaning nearly every available
unit can be rented.
Moreover, Ann Arbor residents
by and large earn more than their
counterparts elsewhere in-the state
and therefore willingly pay in-

creased housing costs - encour-
aging spiraling rents.
Much of the student community
constitutes a captive rental market

of the University, regardless of

that the area "encompassing the
bulk of University housing" is ex-

93 per cent college age persons.
In that area rents are relatively
low but most of the dwellings are
either residence halls or older,
converted single family units.

TEL AVIV (Reuter) - More than 30 Israeli and Syrian jets fought
a major air battle over the Mediterranean off the Syrian coast yes-
terday and more than a dozen planes apparently went down in flames.
It was the biggest air conflict in the region since the 1967 Middle
East war. The fighting came in two stages during the early after-
noon, with sophisticated Phantoms, Mirages and MIGs using air can-
non and air-to-air rockets.
. Israel said it shot down 13 Syrian MIG 21s and lost one Mirage,
and claimed the battle was fought over international waters after the
Syrians had fired on a routine patrol.

troops vow
civil war
SANTIAGO (Reuter) - Chile's
new military rulers smashed the
last shreds of resistence within
this capital yesterday but now re-
portedly face a threat from with-
out-alleged advancing columns of
loyalist troops and workers vowing
civil war.
As the last shots died away in
the center of Santiago, a leftwing
Chilean diplomat told .newsmen in
Buenos Aires that former army
commander Carlos Prats, a staunch
supporter of the slain *president
Salvador Allende, "had re-assumed
command of the army" in a move
against Tuesday's military coup.
There was no confirmation here,
however, of the report by Enrique
Vega, a strong ally of Allende,
made at the headquarters of the
Peronist youth organization in
Buenos Aires, Argentina.
VEGA SAID Prats was at the
head of an infantry diision and
two columns of workers marching
on Santiago from the city of Con-
cepcion, about 250 miles to the
south. Vega did not reveal the
source of his information.
Vega also alleged that Allende
had been killed by a former army
officer named Garrido, denying the
military juntas claim that Allende
had committed suicide.
Casualties and arrests in the
capital appear to be high.
'There have been no official fig-
ures to- verify claims by the
Chilean embassy in Mexico that
thousands died in the fighting, but
a police officer said 30 bodies had
been removed from the social se-
curity building, scene of heavy
fighting Wednesday.
The capital shows ugly .signs of
the fighting. Much of the city is
scarred with bullet marks and
shell holes as the military used
helicopters, tanks, jet fighters, ba-
zookas and heavy machine. guns
to storm pro-Allende strongholds in
banks, factories and gewspaper
offices and then blasted snipers out
of their nests.
The shooting ended shortly be-
fore noon and the curfew, clamped
down when the coup began, was
lifted so that some of the city's
2,500,000 inhabitants could go out
into the streets and buy provisions.
The new rulers displayed a con-
fident front, belying Vegas report
of impending civil war. General
Prats' movements have not been
known since the coup, although
there have been rumors that he is
organizing resistence to it have
