A switch
Senator Donald Riegle said Monday he won't
stand for Jimmy Carter's nomination of Griffin
Bell to be attorney general, and he cast a 'no'
vote when the Senate met to confirm the Georgian
yesterday. Now, this is an interesting state of
affairs. Understand that Michigan's spanking new
junior senator is a member of the Judiciary Com-
mittee, which reviewed Bell's qualifications and
background, and just last week Riegle refused
to vote against recommending Bell to the ful
Senate. He didn't support him either; he just
voted "present." Riegle now says he abstained
last Friday because he had told Carter he would
do nothing to keep the nomination from going to
the Senate floor. "The toughest one to get hold
of," said Riegle, "is the degree to which, as a
nominee, Bell is consistent with the basic com-
mitments of the campaign. Does he keep- faith
with what people were led to believe and count
on?" Hard to say, Don. Bell was confirmed yes-

A prisoner in Michigan's Marquette Prison
says convicts there are using television crime
shows as training courses. Grant Hendrick wrote
about these avid TV fans for the latest issue of
TV Guide, saying many of his fellow inmates
are scanning "Kojack," "Baretta," and "Police
Woman" for tips on improving their act once
they leave prison. "A surprising nine out of ten

told me that they have ' actually learned new
tricks and improved their criminal expertise by
watching crime programs," Hendrick said. "Four
out of ten said that they have attempted specific
crimes they saw on television crime dramas, al-
though. they also admit that only about one third
of these attempts were successful."

Director Joel Berger said yesterday. Officials here
were unclear last week, when Ford's papers be-

would help pay for the nation-wide, professional
fund-raising project, but Berger said he has learn-
ed 'U' funds "will not be used for the campaign
and its expenses ... The campaign will do that."

'Hate to lose him'--President Fleming

University Vice-President Frank Rhodes is a top
candidate for the presidency of Cornell University,
several members of the Cornell search committee
revealed last night.
"He's certainly very high on the list (of' candi-
dates)," remarked Austin Kiplinger, chairman of
the Trustee Presidential Search Committee at Cor-
nell. "He's a man of great talent," he continued.
SEARCH COMMITTEE members indicated that
Rhodes was among nine people under highest con-
sideration at the group's January 12 meeting. Kip-
linger said the list had been further narrowed - -to

eight or fewer - on February 24 with Rhodes re-
maining on the highest level of consideration.
"I really don't know very much about this, but I
am interested," Rhodes remarked, acknowledging
that he knew he was being considered. "It's news
to me that I'm in the final eight," he added.
Rhodes said he is "very happy here (at Michigan)"
but continued, "I would certainly consider an offer
from Cornell ,- it's a fine university."
he had discussed the Cornell presidency with Rhodes.
"I would be very sorry ?o lose him - he is a very

fine man," Fleming commented.
Cornell University began its presidential search
after the current president, Dale R. Corson, indicat-
ed last May he would resign effective July 1, 1977.
The Board of Trustees appointed a ten-member
Trustee Search Committee of its own members, and
set up alumni, faculty and community (student and
staff) committees to aid the trustee group.
EACH COMMITTEE submitted nominations, and
over 400 people were initially considered.
Kiplinger said that Rhodes' name."came up on all
of those lists. One of the reasons that he's so well

Carter, to gtve $50
cash tax rebate to
all U.S. citizens
From Wire Service Reports
WASHINGTON-President Carter's economic program may in-
clude a $50 cash paymelt for nearly every American, including the
non-tax paying poor, Carter's budget director announced yesterday.
Bert Lance said the payments would be in the form of a tax
rebate for each personal exemption claimed by taxpayers for 1976.
There also would be a cash payment for persons receiving Social
Security benefits and for low-income persons who do not pay taxes.
LANCE SAID Carter has also decided to ask Congress to en-
courage business investment by raising the investment tax credit



from 10 per cent to 12 per cent.

cratic congressional leaders to
push for quick passage of emer-

the U.S., West Germany and

Some liberal Democrats and
the AFL-CIO criticized the em-
phasis of Carter's economic pro-
posals and said they would try
to shift the focus of the legisla-
tive package to job creation and
minimize the tax relief.
Lance told reporters it. may

President Carter's suggestion
that "all Americans" turn down
their thermostats to 65 degrees
in the daytime and lower at
night to help cope with the pro-
claimed energy "crisis" seems
to have had little effect upon
students here.
Though an informal survey
revealed that campus thermo-
stats were remaining steady be-
tween 68 and 72 degrees, the
reasons for lack of concern and/
or negligence varied greatly.

Before you set out to look for
your dream house or apart-
ment in Ann Arbor, be aware
that you are shopping in the
second most expensive housing
market in the country.
A recent study by the city
found the average monthly rent,
per person to be $157, and the
rates rise every year. It is not
unheard of to pay $280 for a
one-bedroom apartment.
THE PRICES for different
varieties of apartments vary
enormously with location, size
and condition of the premises.
Outside a six- to eight-block
radius of campus, housing is
less expensive, but it is also
scarcer and eight blocks is a
long way to walk in the win-

Annual search for fall
begyins 6monthsearly
In Ann Arbor the snowy season is not only a time to gather
winter fuel, but a time also to scavenge for fall housing.
According to the Ann Arbor Office of Building and Safety En-
gineering, there are 14,000 rental apartment units in the city -
5,000 in the central campus area.
THAT FIGURE SOUNDS impressive until you realize there are
22 000 undergraduates and thousands more graduate students who
need housing, not all of whom can live in dormitories.
Even in dormitories the housing shortage is acute. The return
of the infamous dorm lo'tery will throw many people out into the
street to look for housing in an already tight market and for
those who stay, there is the threat of a 7.6 per cent rate increase.
"H.U.D. considers a vacancy rate of less than five per cent
in a community to be a cri ical emergency," said Kim Keller,
Legal Coordinator of the Ann Arbor Tenants Union (TU). "Ann
Arbor's central campus vacancy rate runs somewhere between
.5 per cent and 1.5 per cent."
THE WORD FROM the University's Off Campus Housing Office
is not to panic. "We are very concerned about students making
housing commitments before they fully analyze the housing situa-
tion," said Jo Williams, Off Campus Housing advisor.
