Millage defeat
In yesterday's special millage election, Washte-
naw County voters resoundingly rejected a 1.5
mill charter millage increase for special edu-
cation funds. Washtenaw Intermediate School Dis-
trict (WISD) officials hadtasked for the increase
to cover rising costs. In the wake of yesterday's
defeat, WISD administrators reacted with dismay.

Easing the burden
It's like, putting a Band-Aid on a bazooka wound,
but state Rep. Jackie Vaughn III (D-Detroit) wants
to take at least some of the hurt out of state in-
come taxes for students. Under a bill Vaughn
has introduced in the legislature, students or their
parents would be allowed tax credits for educa-
tional expenses - tuition, fees, books and school
supplies - needed for college undergraduate stu-
dies or vocational schools. (Sorry to all you grad
students). The credits would start off with a maxi-
mum of $100 in 1978, increasing by $50 a year until
1981, when a credit of up to $250 could be claimed.
"The escalating costs of higher education and vo-
cational schools threaten to price them out of
range of even middle class families," Vaughn said
in a statement which should surprise no one
around here. Picture it - a tag on your next Econ

Allan Howe is looking for a job. Howe, you'll
remember, was the Utah Democrat who lost his
seat in Congress after trying to buy a good time
from some police decoy prostitutes. Now, his at-
torney says, Howe is knocking on doors in Wash-
ington and may become a lobbyist. As a former
congressman, Howe enjoys floor privileges -
meaning he can mingle with lawmakers as they
do business. Attorney' Dean Mitchell also says
he expects a federal judge to overturn the convic-
tion on grounds of excessive publicity. Howe isn't
talking much about the matter himself, and dis-
patched a reporter's questions with a curt: "You
guys ought to get some new copy, get a new vic-
tim for 1977."

Tuition hike averted?

Gov. William Milliken yesterday made public a re-
cord $3.66 billion budget for 1977-1978 that includes a
$9.7 million increase in funds for the University.
University officials were cautiously optimistic about
the proposed appropration, but President Robben Flem-
ing said he would not speculate on the possibility that a
tuition hike might not be required for the 1977-78 school
BUT Regent Paul Brown (D-Petoskey) spoke more freely.
"We'll keep the raise down, if there is one," he said.
The ,University had originally asked for a $30 million increase
in funding - $20 million more than Milliken's proposal. But the

Carter will continue
gasoline price limits

By AP and Reuter
WASHINGTON - President
Carter, acting swiftly to s' ress
his new authority, yesterday
cancelled a plan by ex-President
Ford to end gasoline price con-
Carter, in office only four
days, withdrew the plan to' end
gasoline price controls that
President Ford submitted on
January 19, the day before he
left office.
"CARTER does not by this
withdrawal intend to imply any
position on the ultimate merits
or. dimerits of gasoline decon-
trol," White Hotse Press Secre-
tary Jody Powell told reporters.
"Instead, he intends to conduct
a review of these controls as an
integral part of the development
of an over-all energy policy.
"Among other things, such a
review will examine the prior
administration's contention that

competitive market forces would
restrain prices for motor gaso-
line below levels which would
be permissible even if controls
remained in effect."
Consumer groups have disput-
ed this Ford administration con-
tention, arguing that lif ing the
controls would increase the cost
of gasoline for consumers be-
yond increases which the con-
trols allowed.
THE PLAN, which would have
taken effect on February 2 un-
less vetoed by the Democratic-
controlled Congress, aroused a
major controversy with oppon-
ents saying it would raise prices
at least six cents a gallon and
was a Christmas gift for big oil

tion (FEA) officials had said it
would add only two cents a gal-

More than 200 jostling residents of Alice Lloyd
Hall ate dinner in the Couzens cafeteria last
night, but they weren't invited.
Rather, they came from next door to pro-
test the University's latest attempt to cut costs
- the transfer of students from three central
campus dorms to three neighboring dorms for
weekend meals.
ACCORDING TO THE Single Student Rent
Study Committee, composed of students and staff
appointed by the Housing Office, the transfer
would cut rent costs by $12 per term for stu-
dents in Alice Lloyd, Bursley, Barbour-Newberry,
Couzens, East Quad, Markley, Mosher-Jordan,
South Quad, Stockwell, and West Quad.
The plan would shift students from Alice
Lloyd to Couzens, from Mosher-Jordan to Mark-
ley, and from West Quad to South Quad each
Saturday and Sunday starting next September.

The protest, which was planned at the end
of last term after a policy committee recom-
mended the transfer plan, made dining uncom-
fortable but didn't bring the meal to a stand-
BUT THAT WASN'T their aim. The Lloyd
people, according to protestor Bob Miller, were
just "trying to show the Couzens people how
bad it'll be."
The group was also angry over a Housing
Office survey of ten per cent of the residents
of each dorm benefitting from the rent cut.
Alice Lloyd visitors waiting in line for Couzens
beef stroganoff and shrimp said the survey is
unfair because four of the dorms polled - Burs-
ley, Barbour-Newberry, East Quad, and Stock-

Council debates, parking rates


V.P. addresses NATO

In a special working session
last night, Ann Arbor City Coun-
cil members debated several
proposals for funding the city's
parking plan, including increas-
ed parking fees and a down-
town special assessment dis-
Although the city may face
property owners who + would be
hit by the special assessment,
several Council members spoke
in favor of the method last

and Program for the period
1977 to 1982.
The proposed parking improve-
ments would include- repairs to
several city parking facilities
including the Forest St. and
Maynard St. parking structures,
as well as a 'sinking .fund' to
provide for future repairs on
parking structures.
Also included in the parking
plan is the city's purchase of

the Forest St. structure which
it currently leases from a pri-
vate owner. No additional as-
sessment will be needed to pur-
chase the facility as current

equal the cost of the struc-

the special assessment for park-
ing improvements calling it "the
only possible solution." He add-
ed that the possible lawsults
would be useful methods of

testing the legality of special'
However, Mayor Albert Wheel-
er favored an increase in park-
ing rates rather than the spe-
cial assessment to fund the re-

dollar hike in monthly parking
fees, currently $20 in most of

well as a five cent an hour in-

BONN, West Germany (t) -
President Carter is considering
boosting U.S. contributions to the
North Atlantic Treaty Organiza-
tion despite his plans to cut Pen-
tagon spending, Vice President
Walter Mondale told officials of
the Atlantic alliance yesterday.
Before flying to Bonn, the new
vice president warned the min-
isters that though the United
States might make some unilat-
eral increases. further increases
would be made only as part of a
cooperative effort by all 15 na-
tions in the alliance.
MONDALE'S comments came
in a speech to the North Atlan-
tic Council, NATO's minister-
level supervisory body, at the
start of his 10-day world tour to
confer with major U.S. allies.
Since taking office last Thurs-
day, Car'er has restated his
campaign promise to cut the de-
fense budget by between $5 bil-
lion and $7 billion by eliminating
Mondale said that with Car-
ter's instructions he was report-
ing to the NATO ministers. that
"his new budget and these effi-
ciencies will not result in any

rope" and was essential to se-
curity. The Mondale speech rep-
resented an affirmation of tan-
gible support.
Informed sources here report-
ed that during a question-and-
answer session that followed
the speech, Mondale said con-
cern over the buildup of Soviet
military capabilities should not
lead to despair. He said he re-
jected "the rhetoric of impo-
tence" as counterproductive to a

mature approach to dealing with
MONDALE was later asked
by reporters whether an in-
crease in the number of U.S.
troops in Europe was planned.
"We had not " contemplated
that," he replied. He also said
the administration had not
settled on a likely level of in-
creased funding for NATO.

Campus radio stations under
assault by new FCC ruling

The campus AM radio sta-
tion, WRCN, and other college
stations like it could be put out
of business by a proposed rule
change the Federal Communi-
cations Commission (FCC) has
tentatively accepted.
The proposed change in regu-
lations, officially known as FCC
docket 207-80, seeks to reduce

the carrier current system.
Lawyers for the Intercolleg-
iate Broadcasting System,
which represents WRCN, are
attempting to get the FCC to
reconsider its tentative accept-
ance of the proposal. If they
fail, Domanski says, "We real-.
ly don't know at this point"
what the consequences will be.
However all indications are
that tests would have to be run

proves the case WRCN may not
be able to afford the cost of the
necessary modifications.
Domanski says the interfer-
ence the FCC is trying to re-
duce is caused by a variety of
factors ranging from garage
door openers to carrier signal
radio stations.
"THEY'RE lumping carrier
current stations unfairly," as
interference sources. Doman-
