WASHINGTON (A)-The
House voted yesterday to con-
tinut its inquiry into the deaths
of President John Kennedy and
M Martin Luther King Jr. tempor-
arily while Justice Department
a lawyers said they could find no
evidence of a conspiracy in
King's death.
By a 4I to 164 vote, the House
extended the life of its Assassin-
ations Committee until March
d n't 31, when its work will be re-
evaluated.
THE HOUSE began what was
to be a two-year investigation
M last September. But the inquiry
ran into trouble because of its
price tag of $6.5 million per
kith year and criticism of the chief
counsel, Richard Sprague.
After the vote last night, Rep.
Henry Gonzalez, (D-Tex.), was
S appointed chairman. House lead-
ers said they were confident
)ur that he would protect individual
rights and present a new budget
in two months.
Supporters of the committee
Iwere irritated by the leaking of
werepor rs yesterday that a special
SdJustice Department study had
concluded that James Earl Ray
- !acted alone in the King assas-
sination.
"I FIND it very irregular we
uu have not been able to see the re-
port," said Rep. Yvonne Burke,
4 A (D-Calif.).
A team of attorneys from the
department's office of profes-
sional responsibility conducted a
10-month review of the King
F case and concluded that there
was no evidence of a conspir-
acy, department sources said.

House leaders endorsed a two- I
month extension of the commit-
tee. But Rep. Jim Collins, (R-
Tex.), said in prepared remarks
that "there is no proved evi-
dence that has come available
that would justify Congress in
creating the Witch Hunt Com-
mittee."
THE COMMITTEE would re-

sume the assassination investi-
gation on an $84,000-per-month
budget until March 31, when its
work would be re-evaluated, un-
der the proposal before the
House.
The committee became em-
broiled in controversy last year
because of its proposed two-
year, $13 million budget.

GEO, 'U' hearing
delayed till March

(Continued from Page 1)
ants should be excluded from
the bargaining unit, and GEO
has taken the argument to arbi-
tration.
If not for this disagreement,
GEO would have had a con-
tract last November, since all
other clauses in the contract
have been agreed upon.
DESPITE the breakdown in,
negotiations, GEO has present-I
ed the University with several
proposals which, they believe,
could clear up the dispute, but,
negotiators haverepeatedly re-
jected the offers.
Chief University negotiator
John Forsyth maintains that de-
termining who is covered by the
agreement is an integral part of
the contract, and that no settle-
ment can be reached until that
issue is decided.
Yesterday's hearing was post-
poned because GEO had pre-
pared another proposal on the
coverage dispute, and the Uni-
versity had seen it only mo-
ments before the hearing was to
begin.
Neither side would reveal the
contents of the proposal, but
GEO President Doug Moran
said it was "similar to one of
our previous proposals" with "a
lot of additions."
GEO HAS previously told the

University that they would drop
their unfair labor practice
charge if the contract could be
signed without the coverage
clause. Members of the bargain-
ing unit would be determined
after an arbitration decision had
been made.
Forsyth said he could not com-
ment on GEO's latest proposal
because the University hadn't
"had the opportunity to analyze
it." The University team would
get together to study the. offer
within the next week, he said.
Moran said the University
may have been anxious to post-
pone the hearing because it
isn't very nice to get slapped
with an unfair labor practice
(ULP)."
"THEY (the University) want-
ed to avoid a ULP so they de-
cided to consider our new pro-
posal," he said.
~ Forsyth said, however, that he
is not trying to avoid the hear-
ing.
"Our position is that we
haven't committed an unfair la-
bor practice," Forsyth said,
"The University is willing to
submit to a hearing to prove
this to the community."
The hearing may be held as
soon as the week of February
21, if the MERC representative,
Sol Sperca, can re-arrange his
schedule.

Carter said he will complete by
April 20 a long-term energy pro-
gram emphasizing conservation.
He said the nation now wastes
more energy than it imports.
"We must face the fact that
the energy shortage is perma-
nent," hesaid. "There is no
way° we" can solve it quickly.
"But if we all cooperate and
make modest sacrifices, if we
learn to live thriftily and re-

(continued from Page 1)
SUMMIT-HAMILTON lawyers
were unavailable for comment
on the negotiations.
Conspicuously absent from
TU's list of demands is the is-
sue which proved the major
stumbling block in the Reliable
negotiations - rent control.
"So far the demands have
been really low key," said Kel-
ler. "There was some discus-
sion in the bargaining commit-
tee that we ask for recognition
of the union and agency shop."
She added, however, that pre-l
sent demands are focused on
maintenance problems.
"CIT'Y CODE requires the
temperature to be at least 68
degrees unless it gets below ten
below zero," noted Steve John-
son, an Arbor Forest tenant.
"Let it suffice to say that in
January the temperature has
met the housing code less than
seven days."
Johnson said Summit-Hamil-
ton had sent "standard proce-
dure" letters to striking tenants
asking them to pay back rent,
but had not yet issued eviction
notices. "To me, that indicates
they don't intend to take us to
court," he added.
TU is currently on strike
against Reliable, Summit-Hamil-
ton, Trony Associates, and the
Traver Knoll apartments. Trony
and Traver. Knoll negotiations
are in progress; Reliable nego-
tiations broke down last sum-
mer and have not resumed.

ing our neighbors, then we can
find ways to adjust and to make
our sqciety more efficient and
our lives more productive," he
said.
AS HE SPOKE from a stiff-
backed chair in the White House
library, Carter said he takes
"very seriously" hia campaign
commitments and believes "they
were the reason I was elected."
He said: "I want you to know
I intend to carry them out."
"As President, I will not be
able to provide everything that
every one of you might like.' I
am sure to make mistakes,"
Carter continued,
"BUT I CAN promise you that
you will never have the feel-
ing that your needs are being
ignored or that we have forgot-
ten who put us in office."
President Carter defended his
$31 billion economic program
last night, calling it an "excel-
lent investment in the future"
that will produce steady, bal-
ancedhand sustainable economic
growth.
"It does not ask one group,
of people to sacrifice solely for
the benefit of another," he said
in his fireside chat. "It asks ,all
of us to contribute, participate
and share to get our country on
the road back to work again."
HE SAID HE realizes that few

TOKYO (M)-Dinosaur fossils,
some dating back as long as
160 million years, have been un-
earthed in mountainous Tibet.

people think his program is per-
fect and that many groups could
ike to change it to fit their own
priorities.
"But I am confident that this
is the best-balanced plan we
can produce for the overall eco.
nomic health of the nation," he
said.
He repeated earlier state-
ments that his "primary con-
cern" is to find jobs for those
who want and need them and
said the $50 tax rebates he is
proposing "are the only quick,
effective way to get money into
the economy and create those
jobs."
AT THE SAME TIME, he said,
he also plans to keep inflation
under control. His program
"does not ignore inflation to
solve unemployment - or vice
versa," he added.
Americans will be given a
chance to comment on the ad-
ministration's tentative tax
proposals before they are sent
to Congress in final form, he
said.
The program is facing some
attempts at change, with some
Democrats calling for a larger
emphasis on job programs eith-
er directly or througli tax in-
centives, and Republicans pro-
posing a $26.2 billion, two-year
stimulus as an alternative.
IN PROMOTING to reorgan-
ize what he termed "our con-
fused and wasteful system" of
government, 'Carter said "the
place to start is at the top -
in the White House.
"I am reducing the size of the
White House staff by nearly one-
third and have asked the mem-
bers of the Cabinet to do the
same at the top staff level. Soon
I will put a ceiling on the num-
ber of people employed by fed-
eral government agencies. So
we can bring the growth of gov-
ernment under control."

Slides of Vietnam Today,

Songs by the cast of HAIR
When HAIR was running on Broadway in the late 60's, the numbers of
Americans and Vietnamese killed were written on large billboards in
the lobby. The Vietnam war is over but the damage to hospitals, rice
fields, and entire villages remains.
CANTERBURY HOUSE is sponsoring HAIR in Lydia Mendelssohn The-
ater, February 17 through 20, as a benefit for Friendshipment, people
to people aid for the reconstruction of Vietnam. One dollar from each
ticket will go for materials to help Vietnam rebuild itself.

Historic firehouse

rates than Ann Arbor received
no federal money at all.
THE FUNDING for the new
station comes none too soon
for the Ann Arbor Fire Depart-
ment, which is now forced to
make do with outdated facili-
ties and equipment.
"The old firehouse, which
was designed for hand- and
horse - drawn equipment, has
been a thorn in the side of the
fire department for years,",
said Fire Chief Fred Schmid.
"The department expanded
but the building didn't,". he ex-
plained. "We just don't have
room to work in here."
THE SMALL building, con-
structed in 1882. can barely ac-
commodate over 20 firefighters
and several large fire en-
gines. But Schmid said the pres-
ent engines are 26 years old
and can no longer be counted
on to start in emergencies.
When new engines arrive later
this year to replace the old ve-
hicles, they will not even fit
into the firehouse.
The new station, Schmid said,
will not only relieve space
problems and boost morale of
the cramped firefighters, but
will also help the denartment
respond faster to the nine
emergency calls it averages
each day.
"Any time you travel over
five minutes to a fire; you've
got a mess," explained Schmid.

"(The problem) doesn't
multiply, it cubes.

Makes It A Little Bit
Easier To Get Through
The Day

SCHMID added that as the
fire department is updated, the
city's poor insurance rating
should improve. Ann Arborites
can then expect their unusually
high insurance rates to come
more into line with those of the
rest of the country.
But what willhappen to. the
old, historic firehouse?
. "We think the optimal use
for it would be for the city to
keep ownership to guarantee its
preservation, but to maximize
returns by leasing it out for
commercial purposes," said
Dick Fry of Fry-Peters, the 1-
cal architecture firm which is
designing the new facility and
may renovate the old one.
S C H M I D concurred. "I
don't want the old firehouse to
be a burden on the taxpayers-
it should pay its own way."
Other possible plans under
consideration include convert.
ing the station into an office
building, restaurant, theatre,
school, or museum.
Schmid predicted the new
firehouse to be constructed next
to the old facility on the corner
of E. Huron and N. Fifth
streets, may itself become a
historic monument some day.
"It willtbe built to last well
into the 21st centur'y," he said.
"But this is Ann Arbor, and
we'll probably keep it for a
hundred."
