mer bargaining team stated
that she expects the bargain-
ing team's proposal to be re-
ferred to the elected bylaws
committee, saying; "The mem-
bership has voted to elect a
committee and but perhaps the
committee will see fit to look at
our draft with an eye to the
good points," she added.
Jones also defended the two-
week postponement of the by-
laws committee elections say-
ing, "The membership needs a
little time to fathom the import-
ance of a bylaws committee per-
haps."

HOWEVER, CDU member
Carolyn Weeks, accused Clar-
ence Contratto, a UAW regional
representative of lying when he
stated that a one-week advance
notice was necessary before the
election takes place.
"He told us that if we went
ahead and elected a bylaws
committee that it could be de-
clared void, because you need
seven days advance notice -
but you only need seven days
advance notice for electionof
officials," she said.
"But that's nowhere in the
constitution," argued Weeks,
"It's a bureaucratic maneuver

ACCORDING to Gould, the
bargaining team has no author-
ity to set the initiation fee,
which has become a sore point
with many of the clericals, eat-
ing up half the average first
month's raise.
"But there's nothing in the
international that says we have
to pay $20," protested Gould.
"That is to be voted on in the
byaws,..o uu.
Although a vote on the bylaws
committee was postponed a sev-
en-person elections committee
established at Sunday's meeting,
contained at least three CDU
supporters, according to Weeks.
The committee will oversee
the election of permanent or in-
terim officers, while Jones con-
tinues to preside at general as-
semblies.

and second-choice votes are

majority is obtained.
WHEN Wheeler defeated Ste-
phenson last April, Republicans
filed suit in order to test the
constitutionality of the PV sys-
tem. Visiting Circuit Court
Judge James Fleming has been
studying that question since last
April 15.
That decision could preempt
the petition drive. Fleming's of-
fice said yesterday that the
judge is continuing work on the
opinion, but they gave no indi-
cation of when the final decision
might be.

Ur'I uli ul)- aae r-
lice, acting on another anony-
mous tip, dug for two hours yes-
terday in an area about one
mile from the site of an inten-
t sive weekend search for the al-
leged grave of James Hoffa.
A State Police spokesman said
in Pontiac that the latest search
turned up no evidence the miss-
ing former president of the
Teamsters International union
was buried in the area.
STATE POLICE spent most of
the weekend searching and dig-
ging in a 29-acre area northwest
of Detroit, where a secret gov-
ernment tipster allegedly re-
ported that Hoffa was buried in
a six-foot grave after his abduc-
tion and murder July 30.
iSome state and local authori-
ties discounted the tipster's lead.

DUL inLanlsng, cil 11C1
gators said they believe the tip-
ster has "solid" evidence on
where Hoffa's killers buried his,
body.
AFTER calling off the search,
the head of Attorney Generala
Frank Kelley's organized crime
division said authorities have
not discounted information the
tipster gave U.S. Senate com-
mittee investigators.
"It's my information," said
Vincent Piersante, "that the in-
formant knows someone who

buried."
Kelley said he considered th%
information solid, but not spe-
cific enough to lead police to the
grave itself.
AUTHORITIES said they may
ask the tipster to visit the scene,
possibly in a helicopter, to try
to pinpoint the grave site.
The identity of the tipster was
not disclosed by investigators of
the Senate's Permanent Sub-
committee on Investigation,
chaired by Henry Jackson, (D-
Wash.).

"We now have sufficient
data," said Councilman Roger
Bertoia (R-Third Ward) follow-
ing the arrests, "to show that
when you isolate a community
and single it out as different you
attract problems.
"YOU CANNOT single out
Ann Arbor as somehow being a
nation apart, because what you
do is attract people whose at-
titude is much stronger toward
the use of all drugs," he said.
In a prepared statement, the
Democrats defended their fail-
ure to participate in the vote on
the Republican resolution, say-
ing -
0 The issue is not of an "urgent
or emergency nature," and
postponing action until the next
regular meeting on October 6
"wouldn't do great harm to the
welfare of the citizens of Ann
Arbor . . ." and,
e "We have no official report
from our police department or
the Drug Enforcement Agency
on which to make determina-
tions to vote approval or disap-
proval," of the resolution.
"I THINK it's particularly gut-
less of the Mayor and the Demo-
crats to not only take a non-
commital position, but not to
hear how the other members of
council stand," said Bertoia,

during the special council ses-
sion.
"They talk about having guts
. . . it takes more guts to not
vote in this situation than to
vote yes," said Democratic
Mayor Albert Wheeler in re-
sponse to the Republicans' ac-
cusations.
Councilman Louis Belcher (R-
Fifth Ward) explained the pur-
pose of the GOP's move to re-
peal the ordinance, saying, "It
seems to me that it is now time
for the citizens of Ann Arbor to
access the two years that the
charter amendment (concerning
marijuana fines) has been on."
COUNCILWOMAN Kathy Ko-
zachenko (HRP-Second Ward)
blasted the Republicans for their
"reactionary" response to the
recent drug bust, saying the is-
sue has been "sensationalized."
"The law agencies and the
news media involved made it
seem that this was the largest
thing in centuries when in fact
it was not that big of a deal,"
she said. "Wha they've done is
tried to portray Ann Arbor as a
drug haven as ar result of the $5
marijuana f in e. That's ludi-
crous."
The dope raids madeaWednes-
day by federal, state and local
police, allegedly produced $4
million worth of cocaine, heroin,
hashish, barbituates and other
drugs.
