AATA increases daily bus fares,
strims Dial-a-Ride, night services

Button up your winter coat and
remember to bring an extra dime
when you ride the city buses begin-
ning this weekend: Saturday is the
starting date of the new transit
service cuts and rate increases.
The Ann Arbor Transit Authority
(AATA) bus fares will increase from
the present 25 cents to 35 cents. The
service adjustments to remember
are as follows:
-Weekday Dial-a-Ride services

will end at 9:50 p.m. and at 6:15 p.m..
on Saturdays instead of the present
11:00 p.m.
-The Packard Avenue night bus
line will be discontinued. The last
day-time run will leave at 6:15 p.m.
Dial-a-Ride will still be available
until 9:50 p.m.
-Sunday transit services will re-
main unaffected by the cuts and will
continue to operate until 6 p.m.
AATA offers $10 monthly passes
for regular bus passengers. Each

pass provides unlimited transit use
for that month .in Ann Arbor and
reduces part of the fare for trips
made outside the city limits.
Starts on new housing are expected to
reach 2 million units in 1977, according
to the Mortgage Bankers Association of
America. This includes 1.5 million
single-family homes.
Kingston, the capital and largest city
of Jamaica, has 170,000 residents.

'U' limits speech

(Continued from Page 1)
explains Friedman. Referring to the
recent speech by John Dean, when a
protestor hurled an orange at the
stage, Friedman said:
"If he shrugged it off and said
'Let's go on' - no problem. If the
orange-throwing persisted and the
speaker was so distraught that he
couldn't go on, then it's cause for

The main purpose of the guide-
lines, he adds, is to "re-establish
communications with no more force
than necessary."
"THE SPEAKER has the right to
express his ideas, and the listener
has the right to assess what he's
saying," said Friedman, "and it is a
serious offense to freedom of speech

r r - r r rrrrr

if these rights aren't protected."
If the protestors disrupt the com-
munication between the speaker and
the audience, the University repre-
sentative present must put the
protestors on notice. If the disruption
continues, the official "should pro-
ceed with those measures necessary
to reestablish order, which may
include physical removal of the pro-
testors." Protestors may express
their opposition in an "orderly
fashion" outside of the area where
the lecture is being held.
Don Coleman, chairman of the Ann
Arbor American Civil Liberties Un-
nion (ACLU), questions the terminol-
ogy used in the guidelines. "What
constitutes 'protesting in an orderly
fashion,' or 'protesting unduly'?
These are ambiguous terms and
they're often used in a discrimina-
tory way to squelch political dissent
and political ideas."
But according to Irving Freeman,
a student ACLU member, the guide-
lines need to be vague because
various violations would be too diffi-
cult to list.

JFK remembered
Yesterday was the fourteenth anniversary of the assassination of President John Kennedy. His brother, Senator
Edward Kennedy, his sister-in-law, Ethel Kennedy, and her daughter, Rory, visited the grave in Arlington Nationals
Cemetery. The Lincoln Memorial is in the background, the grave's eternal flame in the foreground.

If it is wet and cold, parents won't bring
their children. This is the one day when
the city of Detroit sees a good crowd,"
he rejoiced.
"I've worked on and in conjunction
with the parade for the past 18 years,"
Sibthrope continued. "There's been
quite a few changes in the floats-con-
struction, materials, and size have all
changed. But the parade has stayed
basically the same."
Originally, the floats were all of Hud-
son's origin. Due to rising costs and a
reluctance to cut back on the size and
scope of the parade, Hudson's has
allowed - other corporations to submit
float ideas. All the designs and con-
struction are still done by a crew of
Hudson's employes.
This year's parade includes five
floats sponsored by outside interests-
three from the Ford Motor Company,
one from McDonalds and one from
Burger King.
The first Thanksgiving Day parade,
as we know them, was introduced by
the mercantile magnates, Gimbel Bros.
in Philadelphia in 1920. That first
parade, filled with figures from
