House action

passed by a vote of 380 to 26
yesterday a massive school aid
bill strictly limiting busing for
the purpose of desegregation and
banning any federal funds for it.
The bill, on which the Senate
has not yet acted, would extend
the Elementary and Secondary
Education Act and a number of
specialized programs for three

orized for the programs over the
three-year period, but the actual

in the bill have both been pass-
ed before by the House.
One, which would restrict the
power of the courts to order bus-
ing, was proposed by President
Nixon in 1972 and passed the
House but was killed in a Senate
The other, which would pro-
hibit the use of any federal funds
for busing to overcome segrega-
tion, was passed in 1971 but
rendered ineffective by Senate
The first one, adopted 293 to
112, would require the courts to
try a number of alternative
methods to overcome segrega-
tion before ordering abusing and
would limit it to the next closest
school to the pupil's home.

be permitted Ito have their cases
reopened to conform with the
new standards if they became
The other amendment, adopted
239 to 168, would prevent local

school authorities from us

the consolidations would go into

As it came to the floor the bill
provided for only a one-year ex-
ension in order to permit Con-
gress to study many alleged
abuses in the program, but its
supporters succeeded in continu-
ng it for three years by a vote
of 276 to 129.
Other programs extended in-'
elude education of adults, In-
dians, handicapped children and
migrant children.

Charter Amendment A gives
renters a raw deal.
If you don't understand that, you can
hurt yourself badly by voting for
Charter Amendment A.
The bill is a bad bill.
Why? It is far too severe.
It won't just make things miserable
for apartment owners.. . it will make
things miserable for tenants, too.
How so?
it doesn't simply dry up profit from
rental properties, it also eats
away at capital.
Regardless of what you may
think of capitalism...
capital is money.
And, without money,
nothing "good" can happen
to your apartment.
it can't be painted.
The furnace can't be fixed.
The janitor can't be paid.
The leaking toilet will continue to leak.
You'll complain.
And with plenty of reason.
Why doesn't the apartment
owner borrow some money?
Bankers lend money to make money.
And, they're not easily hoodwinked.
They know that - behind the 7,950
words in Amendment A and the
alleged profit of 14% for apartment
owners - there's just one thing.
... There's a losing proposition that's
guaranteed by law!
If you think there's small chance they
might help you're dead wrong.
There's no chance.
This bill is a bad bill.
It goes too far.
It goes so far that it hurts the people
it is supposed to help. It hurts renters.
So when it comes time to vote, don't
pull a handle and hurt yourself. Pull
the handle that can help. Vote NO.
Vote NO on Charter Amendment A.


How to,
a han-dle
urt yourself.

Charter Amendment

Kathak, the classical dance of North India, takes its name from the word "kathaka,"
meaning storyteller. Next week, BIRJU MAHARAJ and his company of seven present
several story dances which combine intricate footwork, rhythmic body movement, and
dramatic facial expression, accompanied by a vocalist, sitar player and table player
(drummer). As many as 150 bells decorate the dancer's feet, expertly controlled so
that all, several ,or only one of them sound.
Concert on Wednesday, April 3, at 8:30, in Rackham Auditorium;
tickets available at $5, $4, and $2.50.

Apartment owners
will be in the hole.
Here's why.
This rent bill, as proposed, not only dries
up profits, it also drains capital.
For two reasons:
1. Rent will be based on the previous
year's expenses - not the current

The owner is only allowed to make a
maximum of 2% of his costs for capital
improvements and one half of his per-
mitted maintenance costs.
That is all.
This is what that means.
If the owner spent $100 for improvements
for an apartment and $200 for mainte-
nance, the only cash profit he would be
allowed would be $102. (And that would
not be allowed until the following year.)
With that $102. he would be exoected to

cancy and credit losses, inflation, and any
interest costs of more than 8%.)
It doesn't add up.
It takes away.
Why will anyone want to provide rental
housing in the city of Ann Arbor? And
where will Ann Arbor - with its huge
population of renters in more than 17,000
rental units - turn for help?
This rent control bill
is a badly-designed bill.
