A striking issue
The Ann Arbor Tenants Union is continuing its
strike against Trony Associates (Sunrise Manage-
ment Co.) although a final agreement seems near.
Spokespersons for both sides refuse to discuss
details of the impending settlement, but a joint
statement is expected sometime this week. The
four month-old rent strike was organized in No-
vember in protest of what some tenants thought
to be inadequate maintenance and security mea-
sures. In related action, hearings on a $1 million
lawsuit filed by the management company against
key Tenants Union officials were postponed yes-
terday due to the prosecuting attorney's illness.
The suit, filed on March 3, charged the TU offic-
ials with coercing tenants to withhold rent by
means of "social and moral" pressure.
Take your pick
Michigan voters may choose from among nine
presidential candidates when they go to the polls
May 18 for one of the nation's most important
primary elections. On the GOP side, President
Ford will again battle against the once-promising
Ronald Reagan. The Democrats' race offers a
little more variety, as seven hopefuls registered
affidavits of candidacy before Friday's deadline.
Front runner Jimmy Carter will share the ballot
with Sen. Henry "Scoop" Jackson, liberal leader
Morris Udall, Fred Harris, '72 Michigan winner
George Wallace, Sargent Shriver, who has with-
drawn from active campaigning, and anti-abortion
candidate Ellen McCormack. Reagan's Michigan
campaign manager, state Sen. John Welborn, said
that although the Californian does not expect to
take Ford's home state, "we're certainly going to
make an effort and we'll do the best we can. It's
going to be difficult and a grass roots campaign."

Postal pushers
They tried higher postage stamp rates, a cut-
back in services and computer-age technology, but
nothing seemed to increase the revenue of the
foundering U.S. Postal Service. Now, in the face
of a sharp decrease in first-class mail use, the
president of the National Association of Letter
Carriers has what can only be described as a last
resort. "Letter carriers are on a first-name basis
with half of America," says James Rademacher.
"They should be put to work selling the Postal
Service." Under Rademacher's plan, the mailmen
could earn extra bucks by talking to their patrons
and persuading them to increase their mail use.
A Postal Service spokesperson declined comment
on the proposal. Maybe he'll mail his response to
Rademacher, in which case he'll probably have
the news by next Saturday.
Chimps and chumps
Three chimpanzees who managed to elude a
massive police search were still at large yester-

day in a posh Los Angeles neighborhood. Debra
Kessler and her 17-year-old son Matthew found
them in their wooded backyard Wednesday night,
staring down at them from the branches. A po-
lice Sgt. called to the scene instructed Matthew
to return to his squad car and radio for help.
The message was garbled somewhere along the
line, because Matthew reported to headquarters
that the officer was trapped by three gorillas,
bringing every available patrol unit in West Los
Angeles to the scene - 23 shotgun-toting officers.
Kessler said the police "all broke up laughing
when they saw the animals." But as the police-
men laughed, the chimps vanished.

Slriver drops out
o Democratic race
By AP and Reuter
DURHAM-Ronald Reagan and George Wallace made
last-ditch campaign appearances in North Carolina yes-
terday hoping to stave off primary election defeats today
which would probably end their presidential hopes.
But political experts were convinced President Ford
would win the Republican primary in this southern
state to widen his already formidable lead over Reagan
and that former Georgia Governor Jimmy Carter would
strengthen his position as the front-running Democrat.
BUT, BOTH REAGAN and Wallace continued to insist that
defeat in this primary election would not be fatal to their White
House aspirations.
On the eve of the North Carolina balloting, Sargent Shriver,

But the plan, which will even-

in the downtown area, will take
about a year to become effective
-and another six months to a
year before developers will even
begin considering projects, ac-
cording to Monroe.
In addition to the time delay
involved in the project, there is
a "horrendous amount of admin-
istrative procedures" confront-

ing any prospective developers,
says Monroe.
Besides the morass of the
present zoning laws, building
codes, seuer restrictions, pro-

regulations, there are some
other important matters to be

the field is expected to trail far

Wallace has taken an increas-

in an effort to cut down the
frontrunner in a normally con-
servative state. "He has been

because he talks one way today
