Pierce and Pursell
Republican State Sen. Carl Pursell still clings to
a 347-vote lead over Democratic candidate Edward
Pierce in their drum-tight race for the Second Con-
gressional District seat. Canvassers in Washtenaw,
Wayne, and Moroe County are still in various
stages of searching for errprs in ballot tabulation,
and the whole shooting match might not be over
until next week. When the canvass is complete
the election will be certified. But Pierce had al-
ready said he'll call for a recount, so at the end
of one week - no runs, no hits,and unknown er-
rors - it's Pursell, 95,393, Pierce, 95,046.

To cherish her
daughters as her sons
On April 18, 1876, the Ladies Library Association
of Ann Arbor held a tea party marking the group's
tenth anniversary-hardly an event destined to
burn a hole through the pages of history. But the
women assembled a booklet recording the gathering
ahd had it placed in a University vault with
directions that it not be opened until 1976. It was
received recently, and revealed a message written
by the University's junior women for their 20th
century counterparts. We'd like to pass it on:
"We the junior girls of 1876 send a greeting
down through the century to the junior girls of
1976. We hope that the next centennial year may
find in our Oniversity a larger band of girls than
we, wiser for all the progress which the world
will make in these hundred years to come, but
still an enthusiastic and earnest as we are, to
whom the admissions of women to collegesis a
new thing and for whom it required some heroism
to enter upon a University course.
'We have faith that our Alma Mater will ever
cherish her daughters as her sons, and that before
the year nineteen hudred and seventy-six, the
world will know some great or noble -rk done by
a woman at the University of Michigan."
Where you' cantbitch
Are you sick of being a member of mankind-
when you know you are not a man? Are you tired
of hearing that older, unmarried women are "old
maids" while unmarried men are "bachelors?"
Are you confused when von continuously receive
letters addressed "Dear Sir" when you know' you
are not a sir? If so, there is now a place on campus
where you can bitch. Oons, sorry. The Commission
for Women's new Sex-Biased Language Committee
has been organized to handle your complaints.

govto structure
WASHINGTON (P) - They are the faces of Jimmy
Carter, and Walter Mondale, and others the American
people have yet to meet, and Thomas P. O'Neill, and
Senate leaders still to be chosen.
They are the new faces of power in Washington,
and they will commandthe government-or try.
"LET THE WORD go forth that the torch has been
passed to a new generation of Americans . . ." John
Kennedy said as he was inaugurated 16 years ago..
It has been passed again, to a new President, a
new vice president, a Cabinet yetto be chosen, a new
leader of the Senate's Democratic majority, a new
leader of its Republican minority.
Some are Washington veterans, some will be new-
comers, but in 1977, none of those jobs will be held
by the people who held them in 1976.
AS IN government, so in politics.
Defeated, the Republican party is without an heir-
apparent. President Fprd has no political base from
which to influence the future of his party. ~

Jimmy Carter
Mayors plead
cause of cities

By The Associated Press and United Press International
CHICAGO - The deterioration of the nation's
troubled ceptral cities can be stopped dead if Jim-
my Carter puts the full weight of Washington be-
hind a new urban strategy, big city mayors said
yesterday.
Keys to such an effort, which the mayors sup-
port, would be creation of an Urban Development
Bank and federal reorganization to reduce the pa-
perwork that now ensnarl city halls. And more
money.
REPRESYNTATIVES of President-elect Jimmy
Carter and Vice President-elect Walter Mondale said
yesterday the niAyors' shopping list was in line
with much of Carter's thinking.
The U.S. Conference of Mayors on Monday con-
cluded a two-day brainstorming session here on pri-
orities to present Congress and Carter. Conference
officials said they are seeking a meeting with Car-
ter to discuss their urban plan.
The five priority areas the mayors listed were:
* Creation of jobs in central cities;
* Development of a new national urban policy
that would consolidate existing grant programs;

prices;
affect
By The Associated Press
The oil cartel seems sure to
raise oil prices in the new year,
a move that probably will mean
higher prices at the gas, pump,
in heating and electricity bills,
at airline ticket counters and
many other, places.
Ministers of the 13-nation Or-
ganization of Petroleum Export-
ing Countries meet Dec. 15 in
the Persian Gulf sheikdom of
Qatar to discuss oil prices, but
the most influential members
have already said they want
increases ranging from 10 per
cent to 25 per cent.
EVENSAUDI Arabia, the lar-
gest oil exporter and the most
reluctant in recent years to
raise prices, has said it wants a
"moderate" increase. That has.
been interpreted as about 10
per cent.
Iran, the second largest oil
exporter, is thought to favor an
increase in the area of 25 per
cent, while Venezuela, an'other
influential OPEC m e m b e r,
wants at least 15 per cent.
The spokesman at OPEC
headquarters in Vienna, Ahmed
Zaheri, said last month he be-
lieved the price would be "ad-

move
other

justed," which
increased.

in oil talk means

THE PRESENT OPEC prices
of $11.51 for a 42-gallon barrel
of standard grade crude has
been in effect since Oct. 1, 1975.
Oil ministers considered raising
prices at their meeting in Bali
in May, but took no action,
largely because of Saudi opposi-
tion.
Each 10 per cent increase in
the price of OPEC oil, if passed
along entirely to consumers,
would add about a penny a gal-
lon to the price of gas in the
United States. This takes into
consideration the fact that the
United States imports 40 per
cent of its oil. In countries im-
porting all of their oil the impact
would be m'ich greater.
A price increase would also
be felt wherever else oil figures
in the economy.
KNUT Hammarskjol'd, direc-
tor-general of the International
Air Transport Association, told
the organization's general meet-
ing yesterday in Singapore that
an increase of 10 to 15 per cent
would add $250 million to $375

million to airline operating costs
around the world.
Sheik Ahmed Zaki Yamani,
the Saudi oil minister, said in
August that some OPEC mem-
bers wanted a "very drastic"
increase-"somewhat similar to
what happened in 1973." Arab oil
nations put an embargo on ex-
ports during the October 1973
Mideast war, and OPEC follow-
ed with the quadrupling of oil
prices.
YAMANI said his government
would resist a large increase
this time because of concern for
the economic recovery of the
West.
"We are not going to slaughter
the hen that lays the gold eggs,"
he said. "There is a limit to
what we can do. And I think we
see that limit a little bit clearer
than others."
President-elect Jimmy Carter
said at his news conference on
Thursday that an oil price in-
crease would be a "very serious
blow" to consuming nations but
that all he could do before his
inauguration was to express
concern through public state-
ments.

CHAIRMAN OPTIMISTIC:

Rhodesia,

talks locked

GENEVA, Switzerland (P) -
British chairman Ivor Richard
flew home to London late yes-
terday to consult on how to
prevent stalemated talks on the
future of Rhodesia from collap-
sing into a guerrilla war solu-
tion.
Richard told a reporter at the
airport that he was "not at all
despondent." But the conference
appeared locked in a hardening
black-white confrontation 11
days after its formal opening.
A SPOKESMAN said Richard
would return today to try to set
up another working session with
black and white delegations.
"Obviously, we have reached
a stage where there are diffi-
culties and it would be absurd
to bide them." the spokesman
said. On the other hand, he said,
"we believe some useful prog-
ress has been made."
