and alleged loopholes that were
cited ast night.
FRANK SHOICHET of the Hu-
man Rights Party (HRP) started
the proceedings by pointing out
what he ragerded as two serious
loopholes in the election ordinance
as it now stands.
Shoichet indicated that the cur-
rent law contains no fixed limit on
the amount that can be spent in
campaigns. According to former
Second Ward council candidate,
this is detrimental because, "the
lessons of Watergate" teach us
that "big money can buy elec-

tions."
Another objection to the existing
ordinance raised by Shoichet is its
failure to prohibit corporations
from contributing money to politi-
cal committees organized against
ballot referenda proposals.
FEDERAL LAW currently pro-
hibits corporations and businesses
from making contributions to poli-
tical candidates. However, there is
no limitation on contributions con-
cerning ballot referenda.
Shoichet maintained that such
further restrictions are necessary,
as large contributions from corpor-
ations could conceivably seriously

influence the outcome of ballot
referenda proposals, including the
HRP rent-control ballot proposal.
Shoichet's suggestions brought
agreement from Chairman of the
Ann Arbor Democratic Party Laird
Harris, who said "individual con-
tributions limits without maximum
spending limits are almost mean-
ingless.'
THE ELECTION ordinnace hear-
ing also brought labor leaders out
in force, who yn general , com-
plained about restriction in the
current law on contributions from
labor unions.
Another public hearing on a pro-
posal to build a new McDonalds
restaurant next to Nichols Arcade
on Maynard Street tended to waver
in tone between the comical and
the controversial, as a plethora of
city residents presented both heat-
ed a n d whimsical arguments
against the proposal.
The issues last night were more
complex than was immediately ap-
parent, however, as the Maynard
Street proposal calls for a sup-
posedly "esthetic" version of the
hamburger emporium.

nuclear industry," according to the
PIRGIM report.
"THE LACK of safeguards is a
fairly sreious problem and indi-
cates irresponsibility and negli-
gence on the part of the AEC,'
commented Ross.
Research done by the GAO un-
covered evidence that in many .in-
stances, the casks and vehicles
were contaminated above the spe-
cified levels and that these in-
stances went unreported to the
AEC.
Ross estimates that "a bare min-
imum of 162 serious accidents in-
volving radioactive casks will oc-
cur in the U.S. during a ten-year
period 20 to 25 years from now If
nuclear reactors are built at the
rate the AEC projects." In Mich-
igan alone this would mean one
major"accident about every 15
months.

power plant are essentially the

Are you still
reading
the way your
parents read?
In the first grade, when you were taught
to read "Run Spot Run," you had to read it
out loud. Word-by-word. Later, in the second
grade, you were asked to read silently. But
you couldn't do it.
You stopped reading out loud, but you
continued to say every word to yourself.
Chances are, you're doing it right now.
This means that you read only as fast
as you talk. About 250 to 300 words per
minute. (Guiness' Book of World Records
lists John F. Kennedy as delivering the fast-
est speech on record: 327 words per
minute.)
The Evelyn Wood Course teaches you
to read without mentally saying each word
to yourself. Instead of reading one word at
a time, you'll learn to read groups of words.
To see how natural this is, look at the

grass is green
You immediately see all three words.
Now look at the dot between the next two,
lines of type.
and it grows
when it rains
With training, you'll learn to use your
innate ability to see groups of words.
As an Evelyn Wood graduate, you'll be
able to read between 1,000 and 3,000
words per minute . . . depending on the
difficulty of the material.
At 1,000 words per minute, you'll be
able to read a text book like Hofstadtler's
American Political Tradition and finish
each chapter in 11 minutes.
At 2,000 words per minute, , ou':l h
,able to read a magazine like Time c:- -

week and finish each page in 31 seconds.
At 3,000 words per minute, you'll be
able to read the 447 page novel The God-
father in 1 hour and 4 minutes.
These are documented statistics based
on the results of the 450,000 people who
have enrolled in the Evelyn Wood course
'since its inception in 1959.
The course isn't complicated. There
are no machines. There are no notes to
take. And you don't have to memorize any-
thing.
95% of our graduates have improved
their reading ability by an average of 4.7
times. On rare occasions, a graduate's read-
ing ability isn't improved by at least 3 times.
In these instances, the tuition is completely
refunded.

Mini-Lesson is an hour long peek at what
the Evelyn Wood course offers.
We'll show you how it's possible to
accelerate your speed without skipping a
single word. You'll have a chance to try your
hand at it, and before it's over, you'll actually
increase your reading speed. (You'll only
increase it a little, but it's a start.)
We'll show you how we can extend your
memory. And We'll show you how we make
chapter outlining obsolete.
