City residents and property owners raised so
much objection to an Ann Arbor Transportation
Authority (AATA) decision to shift the downtown
bus transfer location that the ATA board has
abandoned the change. In a 4-2 vote Wednesday
night, the board acknowledged complaints from
residents of East Washington St. that the new bus
depot location brought them too much noise, fumes
and trespassing on their lawns. The switch back to
the old location, at Fourth and William Streets, is
expected within six weeks. "AATA can't take part
in destroying a neighborhood," said board Chair-
woman Joyce Chesbrough. "I feel guilty for not
having looked at this more carefully."

The state 2 Senate has oted to censure former
U. S. Agriculture Secretary Earl Butz for the rac-
ial clurs that led to his resignation earlier this
weeks The censure resolution, approved by voice
vote yesterday, cited Butz for "crude, vulgar and
insulting racial slurs and an overall lack of human
dignity." Republican Senate .members ,unsuccess-
fully attempted to delete parts of the resolution
that accused Butz of a poor record on hiring blacks
in the Department of Agriculture, saying there
was no evidence that the charge, which popped
up in newspapers this week, was true.

What's the most common last name you can

think of? Smith? Jones? Well, down in Virginia
it seems as though the Carters haye it by, a long
shot, at least on the election rolls. A board spokes-
person said Wednesday that if all the Carters in
Virginia were kinfolk to Jimmy C., the most fa-
mous Carter, the Democrat would sweep the Old
Dominion come November. Judging previous elec-
toral history in Virginia, this isn't just a coinci-
dence. The second most common name in the
state is Johnson, and a certain Texan by that
proud surname was the last Democrat to carry
Virginia in a presidential election.

President Ford yesterday
tried to extricate himself from
his biggest campaign blunder
so far - telling the world that
he did not think the Soviet Un-
ion dominated Eastern Europe.
The statement, made in the
television debate with Jimmy
Carter Wedinesday night, has
drawn a storm of criticism
from leaders of East European
groups and members of Con-
DURING the debate, Ford
said there was no Soviet domi-
nation over Eastern Europe and
there would never be as long as
he was President. He named
Romania, Yugoslavia and Po-
land as being independent Com-
munist countries.
Yesterday, in a speech in Los
Angeles, he amplified on his
remarks by declaring: "The
United States has never con-
ceded - and never will con-
cede - their (East European)
domination by the Soviet Union.
"I admire the courage of the
Polish people and have always
supported the hopes of Polish-
Americans for freedom of their
ancestral homeland," he told
several thousand students at
the University of Southern Cali-
A STUDENT heckler inter-
rupted him, shouting: "Make
uo your mind, Jerry." One stu-
dent held up a sign that said:
"Poland, Czechoslovakia, Hun-
A gasp of surprise went up
from the audience in the de-
bate hall Wednesday night as
Ford said: "There is no Soviet
domination of Eastern Europe."
He went on to say he did not

qualifies debate stand

believe the people of Yugosla-
via, Romania and Poland con-
sidered themselves dominated
by the Soviet Union.
"Each of those countries is
independent and autonomous,"
he added.
CARTER, more confident and
aggressive than in the first de-
bate last month, shot back: "I
would like to see Mr. Ford con-
vince a Polish-American or the

Czech-Americans or the Hun-
garian - Americans in this coun-
try that these countries don't
live under the domination of
the Soviet Union."
Carter said in San Francisco
yesterday that Ford "disgraced
our country" by claiming that
the Eastern European nations
are free of domination by the
Sov et Union.
"'Ihat's obviously untrue and

it was a very serious blunder
for him to say it," he said.
"The Poles, the Czechs, the
Hungarians and the East Ger-
mans have been under Soviet
domination for a long time."
AT THE airport in Salt Lake
City, he said Ford's statement
was one of "either complete
ignorance on Mr. Ford's part,
or he said something he knows
isn't true."

The State Department declin-
ed substantive comment Thurs-
day on Ford's statement. "It
would be inappropriate for me
to get into the subject," said
spokesman Frederick Brown.
Jody Powell, Carter's press
secretary, said the Democrat
will keep pressing the question
until Ford explains what he

Ford orders future list

of Arab bc
By The Associated Press and Reuters
WASHINGTON - President Ford, reversing
administration policy, ordered the Commerce
Department yesterday to publish all future re-
ports made to the government by U.S. firms
taking part in the Arab trade boycott against
However, Commerce Secretary Elliot Rich-
ardson said the order only applies to companies
solicited for support by Arab countries yester-
day or later. If a company has already filed
reports with the government saying it was par-
ticipating or was asked to take part in the boy-
cott, this information will be withheld.
IN HIS DEBATE Wednesday, Ford had led
many viewers to think that past reports would
be made public.
"Because the Congress failed to act, I am
going to announce tomorrow that the Depart-
ment of Commerce will disclose those com-
panies that have participated in the Arab boy-
cott," Ford said during the debate. "This is

something that we can do. The Congress failed
to do it, and we intend to do it."
His action fell short of demands in Congress
for full disclosure about firms who acted to
support the boycott before he signed his order
during an election campaign swing in California
BUT WHITE HOUSE AIDES said the reports
to be disclosed could also refer to past com-
pliance with the boycott if it had not been
reported previously.
U.S. firms" have been required by the Com-
merce Department for the past year to file
reports on requests from foreign governments
to participate in international boycotts.
The President's order- means that the Com-
merce Department will have to make public the
fact that a firm is cooperating with the boy-
cott. But it would not have to detail transac-
tions if this puts the firm at a disadvantage
with competitors.
