Inside the room where the com-

Rep. Robert McClory (R-Ill.)

the committee is seeking on such
grounds, "it definitely signals a
serious confrontation between Con-
gress and the executive branch."

Youngblood emphasized the need
for a decentralized, twd-way com-
munications system.
"Communications t o o 1 s a r e
evolving," he said. "These include
cable television networks with pub-
lic access and private leased chan-
nels and portable video and tape
equipment at a price the public
can afford. We have to get these
tools mass produced."
YOUNGBLOOD suggested the
establishment of a publicly financ-
ed National Information Utility to
"provide public access to informa-
tion and communication channels."
"There is immediate relevance
in communications problems," con-
cluded Youngblood. "I deal with
realities now, not in a Flash Gor-
don future."

commiss ion at one point had ac-
tually voted to include a recom-
mendation that rent controls be
instituted in the central city on a
trial basis. No such statement ap-
pears in the report.
Commission chairwoman Candra
Newman of the Institute for Social
Research said the possibility of
rent control support had been dis-
cussed in the late fall and was
approved in a straw ballot, but
that no formal vote was ever con-
Ehrlich also slammed the group
for not being aggressive enough
in gathering information and said
that he proposed a landlord survey
when the commission first met.
NEWMAN acknowledged that
Ehrlich proposed a survey, but
claimed it had various problems
and Ehrlich never bothered to dis-
tribute the version the group even-
tually approved. She added that
the commission believed such a
study exceeded the scope of the
body given its time limits and fi-
nancial resources.
Moreover Ehrlich contended that
his minority report - which sup-
ports rent control - was not in-
cluded in the official document
(unlike Rose's dissenting state-

ment) because the information
would "be to the detriment of thet
other findings."
He, however, made his report
public in advance of the overall
commission findings, and conse-
quently the other commissioners
found no reason to include it, ac-
cording to Newman.
THIS TYPE of bickering troub-
led the commission from the out-
set and clearly impeded its oper-
ations. But the group had unfor-
tunately been presented with an
originaltask far beyond the grasp
of a volunteer body.
The commission has uncovered
much initial information about the
Ann Arbor rental market and has
made a number of policy recom-
mendations - some valid and
some probably not. Having done
the best they could in the face of
multiple problems - lack of time
and money coupled with internal
strife - the commissioners have
urgently requested council to con-
tinue their work.
The plea seems to have fallen on
deaf ears. Apparently nothing will
be done to improve a situation
which the rent control commis-
sion, despite its wrangling, agreed
needs immediate attention.

Smoke inhalation

A fireman leans out the window of a smoke-filled attic while
fighting a Chicago fire. The fire damaged two buildings, and the
resident of one of the buildings died of an apparent heart attack
after fleeing the fire.
