Publication begins
for new black paper

(Continued from Page 1)
Board funding for "People's Ad-
vocate" does not look likely, how-
ever.
. The board, which gets its own
funds totally from the income of
publications it supervises, would
probably subsidize a publication
"only if the venture was deserving
of support and ,showed likelihood
of becoming self-supporting," ac-
cording to education Prof. Law-
rence Berlin, chairman of the
board.
He added that he would not com-
ment on whether the board should
fund "People's Advocate," saying.
the new group has never come be-
fore the board to request funds or
present its case for jurisdiction
under the board.
According to Berlin, the "very
general" Regental bylaws mandat-
ing the board to supervise Univer-
sity student publications has thus
far been interpreted to exclude
those publications of "a very spe-
cial and narrow appeal," such as,
for example, the engineering col-
lege's newsletter. "People's Ad-
vocate" could "reasonably" come
under that heading, he said.

Harris adds that the city will
probably commission some group
to conduct an "environmental im-
pact test" on the effects of airport
expansion.
The city's airport services small-
er aircraft - generally no larger
than twin-engine propeller planes.
"When a jet lands here it's a real
rarety, we've only had two this
year," says Donald Weisbaum, air-
port manager.
There are two runways-a main
runway 3,500 ft. long and a second-
ary or cross-wind runway 2,700 ft.
long.
While the airport won't be ex-
panding in the near future, some
improvements are being made.
The airport is in the process of
constructing 100 new hangar units
to accommodate a waiting list of
90, according to Weisbaum.
Another improvement, which was
specified in the recent council
resolution, is the lengthening of
the cross-wind runway.

"There are a lot of things hap-

says. "This newspaper fills a gap

prices overall in order to cover
the possible costs imposed upon
him by a ban on non-returnable
beverage containers.
An ecology center survey com-
paring the retail price of beer and
soft drinks in various containers
available to Ann Arbor consumers,
however, is positive about non-
returnable bottles. It indicates that
the most economical way to pur-
chase beer and soft drinks in the
Ann Arbor area is to buy products
in returnable containers.
Eighty per cent of the brands of
returnable containers s u-r v e y e d
were less expensive than the other
types. An additional 17 per cent
of the returnable containers were
the same price as the non-return-
able containers.
Concerning this, Harris notes
"one last wrinkle" to the issue.
It has been predicted by the bot-
tling industry that the price of re-
turnable beer and soft drinks may
increase 1.7-1.9 cents per 16 ounce
bottle and become equivalent to
the price of non-returnable beer
and soft drinks.
"If this happens," Harris says,
"the Ann Arbor consumer who is
not reliable about returning bottles
looses every nickel not returned,"
resulting in a greater loss than if
he had bought non-returnable con-
tainers.
However, at the conclusion of the
interview, Harris commented, "A
week and a half ago, I would have
been against it (the banning of
non-returnable beverage contain-
ers), but now I want to see how
Oregon does."
What Harris is referring to is
the state of Oregon's "bottle bill,"
which became effective Oct. 1, pro-
