M SEE NS An CALA-DAILY
Meet the press
If you're running for a seat on the Michigan
Student Assembly and looking for a soapbox to
stand on, the Daily will listen. Tomorrow from 3
to 6 p.m, we invite MSA candidates and interested
listeners to meet with us in the Daily offices at
420 Maynard. We will be interviewing prospective
MSA officeholders-with an eye to endorsements
for next week's elections-according to the follow-
ing schedule: Independents-3:00 to 4:15; Campus
Coalition-4:15 to 5:00; ACT-5:00 to 5:15; MOVE-
5:15 to 5:45; SOC-5:45 to 6:15. If you're unable
to show up during your scheduled time slot, or if
you haven't heard from us yet, give us a call.
Five new nominations bring to 28 the number of
candidates under consideration to replace Frank
Rhodes as vicerpresident for academic affairs.
Prof. Brymer Williams, chairman of the Senate
Advisory Committee on University Affairs (SACUA)
reported that 12 inside and 16 non-University names
have been receivedsso far. "No nominations have
come from students," he said, and urged students
to submit names for consideration. Two women
are on the list, he stated.
Wait, I'm having a baby
It's better than saying your little brother ate it.
It even tops saying your grandmother papered her
canary's cage with it. Arffaella Nanetti, a Univer-
sity graduate student in Urban and Regional Plan-
ning, landed a postponement of her dissertation
defense this month because she was having a baby.
Nanetti's defense was scheduled for 3 p.m. March
18. But just two hours before her appointment
with her Rackham dissertation committee, nature
called and Nanetti was forced to attend to a rather
pressing matter-namely, the delivery of her child.
"We've given postponements on defenses for a
number of reasons in the past," said dissertation
secretary Mary Anne Wilkinson, "but never for a
reason like this." Nanetti has not been rescheduled
by the dissertation committtee so, for the time
being, the defense rests.

New York Gov. Hugh Carey has been accused
by his more critical observers of playing a hand
in financially breaking his state's biggest city.
And, like a good, tough politician, he has taken
the criticism gracefully. But Carey's not accus-
tomed to being accused of breaking a marriage.
In a speech last weekend to a group of Demo-
cratic party women, the Democrat governor said
there were no Republican women in the state
legislature. Republican Assemblywoman Mary
Goodhue of Westchester disagrees. "If this keeps

Despite previous divisions
over various methods of sewage
treatment, Ann Arbor City
Council last night unanimously
approved plans for the city's
new $40 million waste treatment
Although Couni members
had split during a previous ses-
sion over what method to use
in treating sludge (the final
waste product of sewage treat-
ment) they approved the plan
in its original form rather than
risk losing federal monies which
will fund the new treatment
plan. The city must submit the
plan to state and federal com-
mittees for approval by August

SANTA CRUZ DE TENERIFE,
Canary Islands - Investigators
probed flight records yesterday
for clues to the cause of the
flaming runway collision of Pan
American and KLM jumbo jets
that killed more people than any
aviation disaster in history.
Airline officials in New York
said 578 persons, most of them
believed to be Americans, died
when the two chartered jets fill-
ed with vactioners collided Sun-
day while preparing to take off
from the fog-shrouded runway.
The dead included all 248 per-
sons aboard the Dutch airliner
and 320 of the 396 aboard the
Pan American jet, officials said.
KLM said four of its passengers

As the First Ward City Council race grinds into its last week,
Democrat Kenneth Latta is guardedly confident, Socialist Human
Rights Party (SHRP) candidate William Wilcox is hopeful, and
Republican Val Jaskiewicz is looking for a light turnout.
All three candidates concede the Republicans will draw about
1200 votes regardless of individual candidates or issues. The race
will hinge on two questions: first, whether the Democrats can turn
out enough votes to top that total; and second, whether the aggres-
sive door-to-door campaign waged by Wilcox will cut significantly
into Latta's liberal vote.
"I KNOW the people are out there," said Wilcox. "Whether
they can be motivated is another matter."
Wilcox criticized both Jaskiewicz and Latta for "inconsistency"
and "lack of a program," adding that "their priorities are more
for getting elected than running a social program."
Whether Wilcox himself can be elected is a matter of debate.
The First Ward has historically been Democratic, but Republican
Wendell Allen wrested a seat from the Democrats last year and
HRP elected a councilperson from the ward four years ago.
JASKIEWICZ HAS chosen not to run an issue-oriented cam-
paign, counting instead on "solid" Republican residential areas to
deliver most of his vote. "In some of those areas, those people
see the name of a Republican down and they vote Republican," he
The major issue in the ward, which has a largely student and
low-income housing population, is housing.
Latta sees the city's housing problem as one of supply. "Any
proposal must be considered with regard to how it affects the
supply of reasonably-priced housing," he said. "No one simple
answer presents itself.
LATTA FAVORS zoning changes, tax incentives to both home-
steaders and developers and "an intelligent use of federal housing
dollars." He advocates a complete review of housing and building
codes,but opposes rent control because, he says, it fails to address
the supply problem.
Jaskiewicz wants to build a senior citizens' housing - complex
and a downtown middle-income highrise, proposals advocated by
Republican mayoral candidate Louis Belcher. He opposes rent
control because, he says, it discourages development, but favors
tax incentives for builders.
Wilcox supports city-wide rent control, a "repair and deduct"
ordinance - which would allow tenants to make minor repairs on
