We're in the money
It must be all the professors' inflated salaries.
Ann Arbor ranks second in the state for per capita
annual personal income and 36th in the nation,
according to figures released this week by the
Department of Commerce. Based on data collected
during 1974, the figures give the average Ann
Arborite an annual take of $6,038 - well above the
$5,449 United States average, .Detroit came in
first in Michigan, and the bedroom communities
of New York City in Connecticut - Bridgeport,
Stamford, Norwalk and Danbury - made the top
of the nationwide list.

State Health Director Maurice Reizen announced
yesterday he is lifting the temporary suspension of
the state's swine flu innoculation program and
expects to see clinics reopened by Monday. Echoing
conclusions drawn yesterday by the Center for
Disease Control (CDC) in Atlanta, Reizen said
there is no link between the vaccinations and the
people who died shortly ofter getting their shots
this week. Most of the states that stopped their flu
shot programs after the brief scare have resumed
their programs. CDC said that 35 of the some
one million elderly persons vaccinated this week
died after their shots, but implied, in effect, that
they would have died even without their shots.

According to two national political polls, Jimmy
Carter reversed a downward slide in popularity
among registered voters and widened his lead over
President Ford after their second televised debate.
GallUp puts the Georgian's support at 48 per cent,
leading the incumbent by six percentage points,
while the CBS News - New York Times survey
gives Carter a 60-40 margin in the South,ea 58-42
edge in the Midwest, and a precarious 51-49 lead
in the East and West. The results of the Gallup
survey indicate that Carter has halted - at least
temporarily - the almost steady erosion of his
support since the Democratic National Conventinon,
when the polling organization gave Carter a
seemingly comfortable 62-32 lead over the then-
Two bicycle lovers at Massachusetts Institute of
Technology have invented a pair, of pedal-powered
contraptions they say are faster, safer and more
comfortable than anything else on two wheels.
Based on the theory that a bike rider should be
able to sit back and feel comfortable as he moves
along, the bikes force the rider to lounge back in
a semireclining position, stick his feet straight out
and pump the pedals. Designer David Wilson, an
engineering professor, says people seem to like
his inventions. "Grown men cheer as I come
along,' 'he says. "People clap." Accident-prone
riders will like the bikes: since the seat is lower,
its not so far to the ground if the rider falls off.
The Nobel committee of the Norwegian parlia-
ment has decided not to award the 1976 Peace
Prize, it was announced yesterday. The five-
member committee gave no reason for its de-
cision, but said the record $160,000 prize money
will be reserved for 1977. Nobel Institute Director
Tim Greve had said earlier that 50 candidates were
being considered, and many observers had specu-
lated the award would be given to Mexican
President Louis Echeverria or the Roman Cath-
olic nun Mother Theresa for her work among the
poor in Calcutta, India.

PEKING - Mao Tse-tung's widow Chiang Ching was accused
yesterday of plotting to assassinate Premier Hua Kuo-feng, Mao's
successor as chairman of China's Communist Party and leader of

Reliable sources said the former actress and three leading

. In Shanghai, where Madame Mao and her colleagues rose to
political power during the cultural revolution 10 years ago, slo-

Sources there said the city and Futan university campus were
littered with posters crying: "Crush the heads of the four dogs.'
STUDENTS PREVIOUSLY regarded as close supporters of
Madame Mao and her followers attended meetings to criticize
them, the sources added.
The sources said some Chinese had been told that three con-

,1977-78 BUDGET APPROPRIATIONS
$30 million increase

By JAY LEVIN
The University Board of Regents yesterday
approved a request to increase the University
budget nearly $30 million, for 1977-78 - an in-
crease which, if approved by the state legisla-
ture, would make next year's budget about 50
per cent higher than the 1975-76 outlay.
Most of the increase, which will be submitted
to the state later this fall, is taken up by an 11.5
per cent salary adjustment for faculty members.
Additional increases were necessary, the Uni-
versity says, to make up for loss of federal as-
sistance funds and to keep up with inflationary
THE BOARD WAS ALSO presented with the
1976 University fiscal report - and in a spirited
cross-table debate voted to publicly oppose Pro-
posal C, a state ballot proposal the Regents fear
may result in trouble for higher education insti-
The increase in faculty pay, which comprises
$13.4 million of the budget increase request, was
exactly in line with a recommendation made by
the Committee on the Economic Status; of the
Faculty (CESF) to the Regents last month.
"I think it's absolutely essential that, we offer
increased salaries to get the best faculty possi-
ble," said Regent David Laro (R-Flint).
ALTHOUGH he called the 11.5 per cent pay
raise - which translates into over $13 million-
"feasible," Laro warned that "It's difficult to
foresee" whether or not the lawmakers in Lan-
sing would cover such an increase.
If the state fails to cover the pay raise stu-
dents might end up helping pad their professors'
pockets with additional tuition dollars.
CESF's findings were, reflected in a table
which ranked the University fifth in a list of 14
"peer" institutions in the amount of compensa-
tion paid to all ranks of professor. The commit-
tee's report stresses the importance of maintain-
ing salaries at a competitive level so -as not to
lose faculty members to higher paying positions
at other Universities.
