TU's

Summit-Hamilton

strike reaches standstill

By STU McCONNELL
As the Ann Arbor Tenants
Union (TU) strike against Sum-
mit-Hamilton Management Co.
ground into its second month
yesterday, TU's Elliot Ryan said
negotiations were "at a stand-
still."
"Right now I'd say most of
our negotiations are over the
phone," said Ryan. "We're go-
ing to try and set up another
meeting this week."
THE STRIKE centers around
the Arbor Forest apartment
building on South Forest St~,
where tenants complained they
were getting insufficient heat
during the January cold snap.
Tenants demanded a three-
month rentdrebateas compen-
sation, as well as removal of
a clause which charged them
for cooking gas - all Arbor For-
est stoves are electric. They al-
so demanded a maintenance
clause permitting tenants to call
outside contractors after a cer-
tain period of time.
TU negotiators also asked
striking tenants to press for
recognition of the union, but the
demand was later dropped.

a five-week rebate and removalf
of the gas clause; tenants coun-
tered by lowering demands to
two months' rebate and compen-
sation for electric bills.
"Some people had $90 in elec-
tric bills," Ryan explained.
According to Ryan, although
Summit-Hamilton has made con-
cessions on the issue of rent
compensation, "they only want
to deal with compensation. They
don't want to deal with mainte-
nance, with individual mainte-
nance problems."

Representatives of Summit-
Hamilton would not comment on
the negotiations.
TU IS TRYING to break the
logjam by asking the Arbor
Forest tenants to drop mainte-
nance demands.
Ryan said he hopes to begin
negotiations later this week. TU
is also on strike against Troney
Associates and against Reliable
Realty. The Reliable strike
dates back to December, 1975.

remain in effect antil the high
court's decision.
Many civil rights groups, feat-!
ing an adverse ruling from the
Supreme Court, urged Lhe un-
versity regents not to appeal the
state court's judgment. They
felt that the program's failare to
admit "disadvantaged" whites
made it a weak test case.
MORE THAN a dozen civil
rights organizations joined inefl-
ing a friend of the csour. br of
asking the justices Sao: to accept
the case for review.
They contended that Bakke's
case was not a good one to use
if the court were going -a 1e-
solve an issue that "may deter-
mine the future coursa of inte-
gration efforts not rnly in the
medical profession, but in other
professions and the educational
avenues leading to tihm."

court to hear the case aad Ce-

THE ISSUE was be ire the
Supreme Court two years ago

The court voted 5.to 4 that the ,
suit of white student Marco De

A review of the musical Hair!
by Andrew Zerman in yester-
day's Daily gave a mistaken
impression. The first paragraph
read, "Dig it: Hair-was present-'
ed this weekend as a benefit I
for Friendship and man. It was
a rip-off." It should have read,e
"Dig it: Hair was presented this r
weekend as a benefit of Friends'

WASHINGTON - Charles Schultze, chairman of the Council of Economic Advisors, briefs
Washington reporters on President Carter's proposed 1978 budget. Schultze believes that the
budget deficit does not necessarily rule out a balanced budget by fiscal 1981. See the Daily
Digest, Page 3.

"BUT AS THE government
and society urbanized, as we've
become more alienated and sep-
arate from each other, we have
dealt more with bureaucracy
and had more trouble mak-

work," he said.
"Part of the trouble developed
from a logical and very clear
tendency in government to act
in secret because to control in-
formation and to limit informa-
tion is to have power."
But these laws do not end the
problems of secrecy, Bullard
said; people seeking information
are frequently shut out.
