Travel c
By STEVEN SHAER
If you want to visit several American
cities within a short time - say, one to
three weeks - you have four choices of
f unlimited mileage deals.
You can go by bus, plane or train.
Each-offers a deal in which you can
start almost anywhere, travel to any
other city, reboard, and keep on going
to any other city - along their routes,
of course - until your time runs out.
Greyhound Bus has the advantage of
travelling to more cities than either the
trains or planes. You can go virtually
anywhere in the country. The bus also
offers the lowest prices. A 15-day ticket
costs $165, the 30-day pass is $225 and
$325 can keep you going for a full 60
days.
These rates are good until April 15.
There is also a seven-day pass, offered

heap wit
through March 31, for $99.
The only restrictions on these passes
is you cannot return to the point of
origin more than four times.
Amtrak offers the USA Rail Pass
with a little more comfort and speed
than the bus. It, too, travels to all cor-
ners of the country though not quite as
extensively as the bus. With this you
can visit any city as often as you like.
The rail passes would cost $159 for 14
days, $215 for 21 days, and $225 for 30
days. These newly lowered rates were
effective February 10, but will go up
again by May 15. The passes will go up
to $185, $250 and $295 respectively.
Two airlines - Eastern and
Allegheny - also offer similar deals.
The differences in the prices are sub-
stantial, and each offers something the
other does not.
On Eastern, your travel period must

humlimi
be at least seven days and no more than
21 days. Prices range from $302 to $323
for each person.
The restrictions are more stringent
than those for the bus or train. You
must go with at least one other adult,
make at least two stopovers in addition
to the final destination, and you cannot
visit any city more than once.
Eastern can take you to 101 American
cities, most of which are in the eastern
half of the country. But you don't have

ted mileage deals
to stay in the country. Eastern also flies foreign country and the cities on its
to a couple of Mexican cities, and routes are primarily in the north cen-

KIRBERG'S REMARKS were sup-
ported by those of another Chilean
dissident, Claudio Grossman.
Grossman, also a former educator, said
Allende offered a new hope to many
people in Chile.
Grossman contrasted that hope,
which he called a "chance to live in a
free society within the context of the
law" with what he called a life of
repression under the Pinochet rule.
The reform of the universities which

Allende instituted tried to make them
responsive to the needs of all the
people, Grossman said.
"WE WANTED our universities to
become the critical conscience of our
country," said Grossman. He said the
goal was to direct research and
education toward benefiting the com-
mon man.
But the Pinochet regimehas changed
the role of the university. National-
security studies and the history of the

armed forces are now required courses,
" he said. "They want technocrats who
will not question the regime.r
Grossman said, "They want to avoid
politics in the university." The gover-
nment wants to change the mentality of
the students, he added.
But the people and the students of
Chile are resisting, he said. Kirberg
echoed the, sentiment of Grossman's
sentiments when he asked the audience
"to help us save Chilean culture."

Senate committee OK's
college tuition tax credits

WASHINGTON (UPI)-The Senate
Finance Committee yesterday ap-
proved tax credits for college and
vocational school tuition beginning next
fall, and for elementary and secondary
school tuition beginning in 1980.
The vote was 14-1.
IF PASSED by Congress, the bill
would represent a $250 tax savings for
college students or their parents for the
next two school years-and a saving of
up to $500 for all who pay school tuition

after Aug. 1, 1980, including college,,
vocational, private and parochial
schools.
A tax credit is subtracted directly
from taxes owed and therefore is a
dollar-for-dollar saving to the taxpayer,
as opposed to a deduction or exemp-
tion which is subtracted from income
before taxes are calculated.
It was the first formal vote by any
congressional committee since
President Carter announced his com-

peting $1.2 billion increase in education
grants.
THE PLAN passed yesterday is a
compromise between two competing
tuition credit proposals-one by Sens.
William Roth and Abraham Ribicoff
limited to college tuition, and the other
by Sens. Bob Packwood and Daniel
Moynihan which covered all tuition.
It is expected to be challenged
quickly in court if it clears Congress
because the credits also would go to
church schools.

Effects of coal strike worsen,
Michigan must make cutbacks

(Continued from Page 1)
for a negotiated settlement to the coal
strike yesterday.
The President said he has decided
against immediate government inter-
vention in hopes of getting the striking
United Mine Workers and coal industry
officials back to the bargaining table.
"We're still trying to get the parties
to negotiate with each other," he told a
reporter at swearing-in ceremonies for
the new FBI director.
The President met earlier with
congressional leaders of both parties
and was to confer with the governors of
West Virginia, Pennsylvania and Ken-
tucky - states hard hit by the bitter
walkout.
ADMINISTRATION officials said the
President told the lawmakers there was
still a last chance for a negotiated
agreement and he could not wait past
the weekend to act.
The officials said Carter stressed
there was a need to keep options open

for a few days and congressional sup-.
port is needed to let industry and union
know backing exists for seizing the
mines or invoking the back-to-work or-
ders of the Taft-Hartley Act.
An Associated Press-NBC News poll
found nearly two-thirds of the
American people' think Carter should
try to reopen the mines through Taft-
Hartley.
Senate Minority Leader Howard
Baker, who was among those meeting
with Carter, said it could be late April
or May before Congress could act on

special legislation. By then, he said,
there could be 90 per cent power cut-
backs in some areas and millions of
people out of work.
ALTHOUGH Carter still hoped for a
resumption of negotiations, the two
sides appeared deadlocked, The in- }
dustry had said Wednesday it could not
accept the union's proposal calling for a
settlement nearly identical to one
reached earlier with a major indepen-
dent producer, Pittsburg & Midway
Coal Mining Co. The union declared it
could accept nothing less.

Jud(ge denies. appeal
by gay mom for kids

from grade two through five.
"HERE IS a single parent doing a
phenomenal job with her daughter,"
said Burgoyne, citing two Friend of the
Court studies favorable to Miller. "The
mother has a strong ability to give love,
affection and guidance-the kind of en-
vironment a childthrives on," she said.
Ziem referred to "the lesbian
situation" in his review of the child
custody criteria. "The sexual am-
bivalence or lesbianism must be taken
into consideration," he said.
"This court is not criticizing the
mother for being a lesbian," Ziem said
in' summation. "This (lesbianism) is
not considered normal. It is a minus
factor. The court has not changed
opinions," he said.
MILLER discussed what she termed
the double standard applied to her case
after the decision was given. "If I had

not acknowledged that I'm a lesbian,
this custody case would never have
been brought up, or if it had, it would
have been thrown out very quickly,"
she said. "They're deciding the
question, 'do gay people have the right
to be parents'," she said.
Miller said few people have contested
the child care she has given 'illian.
"Everybody points out that she's so
neat. How is she going to be such a neat
person if the home environment is so
bad?".she questioned. "Even the judge
said she was a nice girl."
Burgoyne and Miller said Ziem's
decision would be re-appealed to the
State Court of Appeals.

st opened to the public in 1793 by
