'Baboon Six' saved;

a Committee to Save the Baboon Seven,
there would be six more baboons on the
sleds," Smith said.
BUT SMITH also said she had mixed
feelings about the new development in
the matter.
"I certainly don't feel vindicated
about it. I'm very suspicious of the
reasoning behind it. I feel some per-
sonal defeat in that there's no way those
six baboons are going home intact," she
said, referring to the fact that no
specific plans have been released for
the future of the test animals.
Robbins said he couldn't predict the
baboons' future use for other research,
saying only that "it's not really in our
(HSRI)hands."
THOUGH THE "baboon seven" con-
troversy may be resolved, both Gaede
and Smith agree that their committee
has just begun its battle against
cruelty to animals.
"This is only one incident of many
experiments that have been going on
for a long time. We want to meet with
University officials. We . want to
establish an overview committee on
experiments on animals."
Smith also insists the committee is.
here to stay. "I think they (the resear-

chers) intended to stop the issues by
stopping the testing. Most of us who've
been involved know that this is just the
tip of the iceberg."
University researchers used 23
baboons in similar experiments two
years ago. Melvin said all information
to be gathered for this project will be
collected within the next few months.
BIRD SAVER
WASHINGTON (AP) - Bluebirds,
once in danger of extinction, are in-
creasing their numbers thanks to the
efforts of Dr. Lawrence Zeleny's pro-
gram of conservation, according to
the National Geographic Society.
Zeleny has sponsored the place-
ment of nesting boxes along trails in
the United States and Canada since
1966, when he retired. There are now
hundreds of the boxes, including
those on a 2,000-mile trail in Canada.
Eastern bluebirds have declined in
population as much as 90 per cent
over the past four decades because of
threats from rival birds like starlings
and house sparrows and because
humans have destroyed their natural
nesting places - wooden posts and
dead trees, Geographic reports.
The mountain and western blue-
birds have also suffered declining
populations over the years.

Bertoia: Four years
of Council frustration

Yy

(Continued from Page 1)
The major issues that Bertoia thinks
have been lost by the wayside amidst
the on-going Republican-Democratic
feud include the housing problem, and
the relationship of the city and, the
University.
The University sprawls across Ann
Arbor soaking up acres of tax-free land,
and the debate still rages as to whether
the 'U' supports its own weight in
paying for city services, like police and
fire protection.
"WE'VE NEVER reached an agree-
ment regarding the amount of support
they should be giving us," says Bertoia,
who is known on Council as the member
with an axe to grind against the Uni-
versity. "That's a vendetta that the
University officials and I have had for a
long time."
Bertoia says he recognizes the
unquantifiable values the University of
Michigan adds to the city of Ann Arbor.
"But there are still some costs that the
taxpayers have to bear, and I think
some of that should be alleviated."
Bertoia says getting the University to
pull its own weight "is one of the things
I leave unaccomplished, and Irsuspect
it will stay unaccomplished for a long
time.",
DESPITE THE frustrations imposed
by partisan deadlock, Bertoia does look
with favor on his accomplishments over
the last four years. He cites such inno-
vations as natural ice rinks in neighbor-
hood parks - "That was one of my pet
projects and I got it," he says.
Bertoia says he is glad to see theafire
department better equipped now than it
was four years ago, and he takes pride
in expanding neighborhood recreation
facilities. "I'm very interested in neigh-
borhoods," he says.
Bertoia admits the irony in that his
major accomplishments have all been
on the smaller scale - neighborhoods.
He says that as the only area where a
councilmember can make progress,
even while the larger problems like
housing go unfinished, are small
projects.
IT IS CONCERN for neighborhood
that led Bertoia to introduce the ill-
fated pornography ordinance that went
down to a crushing defeat last summer.'
Bertoia still recalls the pornography
bill as "a disappointment."
Summing up the last four years, Ber-
toia says, "The part that's really enjoy-
able has not been the Monday nights
(Council meetings), it's been the other
six days. I average twenty to thirty
calls a week from people with
problems, and that's the fun part of it."

Inability to grapple with the problem
of the University paying its bills, or to
break the political stand-off on housing,
Bertoia says, "The problems inside the
ward are the ones I can deal with. I en-
joy working with the people."
Above all, Bertoia says he enjoys
tackling and solving a little problem for
a constituent. "That feels good," he
says.
