"The proposal may pass if Re-
publicans are true to their word
regarding rape legislation," said
1HRP First Ward Councilman Jerry
DeGrieck. "However, the Republi-
cans are often not true to their
words."
COUNCILMEN Richard Hadler
(R-Fourth Ward) and Bruce Ben-
ner (R-Fourth Ward) are both op-
posed to the police advisory board
and it appears doubtful that they
will support the resolution.

tims of other crimes?" Benner
commented.
Currently, the Ann Arbor metro-
politan area is first in Michigan in
reported incidence of rape. How-
ever, the 42 reported rapes in 1972
resulted in only one conviction.
HRP CHARGES that because of
the "insensitive handling of rape
victims by the police and the dif-
ficulty of proving rape," many
more rapes go unreported.
The HRP measure is more aim-
ed at "preventing rather than
prosecuting" rape, party members
said.
HRP estimates that the resolu-
tion would cost between $60,000 and
$100,000 to implement. Despite the
city's sizable debt of $1 million,
HRP members feel that the money
to implement their program is
readily available because it "would
combat rape more effectively than

I onday
pouring more money into the po-
lice department."
Under the resolution's specifica-
tions, the advisory board would be
composed of two police officers,
one of them a woman, two mem-
bers appointed by the Women's
Crisis Center, one member from
each of the three political parties
and the head of the rape unit.
THE ALL-FEMALE rape unit
would be composed of six women,
one of whom would be on duty at
all times to explain to the victimj
all aspects of the investigation and
trial "with the intent to encourage
her to prosecute."
The proposal also calls for round-
-the-clock free public transporta-
tion, free self - defense courses,
more and higher intensity lighting
for city sidewalks, alarm systems
in public bathrooms and a direct
free telephone line to the police.

pay the lobby supervisors and
clean-up crew; $25-30 to pay the
projectionist, who must be union
certified; and $15 to rent each
projector used from the Univer-,
sity
New World also expresses dis-
satisfaction with what they term
"arbitrary" assignment of a higher,
priority for academic uses of audi-
toriums than non-academic uses.
This low priority status of the
film groups' screenings means
their longstanding reservations for
an auditorium can be cancelled at
any time if an academic depart-
ment decides they need the room,
the leaflet says.
NEW WORLD claims that "ar-
bitrary cancellations" caused the
loss of 23 of their "original request-
ed show-dates" last fall, resulting
in a financial setback of "about
$10,000."
Corrine Bowden, spokeswoman
for the University's Scheduling
Office, sharply questions New
World's claim to have lost money
due to refused or cancelled show-
dates. Bowden explains that due
to the limited number of audi-
toriums available, film groups are
often required to settle for fewer
than the number of reservations
they originally request.
However, late date cancellations
of auditorium reservations caused
by requests from academic depart-
ments are quite rare, she says.
"The real competition (for the
auditoriums) is between the film
groups," Bowden claims.
KENNY CITES University finan-
cial holdings in Butterfield The-
atres, a city theatre chain that
must compete with the student
film societies, as a possible motive
for harassment of film groups.
An inspection of the University's
most recently published "Schedule
of Investments" discloses that the
University has had sizeable hold-
ings in this theatre chain within
the last year.
HOWEVER, Easthope dismisses
charges of financial conspiracy by
the University against the film
groups as "just bull."

(UFW) supporters are planning
their largest picketing demon-
stration since last fall for today.
The demonstration, to be held

non-UFW grapes and lettuce. The
action comes on the heels of the,

ald Helveston, saw the decision dif-
ferently, however, claiming, "the
jeopardy to life and property
around here is rescinded."
Helveston also asserted that the
union had "talked the city into"
keeping the fire station open, add-
ing, "We're concerned about the
safety of the people who live in
this area. If the station closes,
they're in deep trouble."
THE DECISION to close the sta-
tion was one part of a large num-
ber of layoffs which Murray had
made in an attempt to comply with
an order from the Michigan Mu-
nicipal Finance Commission .
In January the commission
ruled that the city must end the,
fiscal year with a balanced budget
and must repay $300,000 of the city
debt of $1.2 million.
To comply with the order Mur-
ray laid off some 169 city union
workers as well as over 200 city
non-union personnel:

THE LAWSUIT was only one of
the ways in which the fire fight-
ers had been protesting the deci-
sion to close the station.
At the City Council meeting last
Monday, when the decision was
announced, two speakers from the
International Association of Fire
Fighters warned that their organ-
ization would not "view the clos-
ing lightly," and claimed that the
act could endanger the lives of
area residents.
In addition, the firemen had tak-
en their cause to the streets, dis-
tributing handbills which warned
of impending disaster if the sta-
tion was closed.
The firemen from Station Num-
ber Five had also painted a 60 foot
banner which proclaimed, "This
station will be closed April 5.
Should this happen?" The firemen
had planned to hang the banner
from the station until Murray an-
nounced that he would negotiate
with the union.
