Survey note
The recovery in consumer sentiment, now a
year-old, has picked up momentum in the past
few months, according to a study done by econ-
omists at the University's Survey Research Cen-
ter. Survey director Jay Schmiedeskamp and
Survey founder George Katona reported that the
improvement has occurred among all income
groups - low as well as high - and all atti-
tudes and expectations sampled in the survey
showed improvement without exception. Attitudes
toward buying cars and houses showed especi-
ally strong gains, the report noted.
Unemployment blues
In other economic news, unemployment in
Washtenaw County dropped from 11.4 per cent
to 10.6 per cent for mid-January to mid-Febru-
ary, the Michigan Employment Security Com-
mission announced. The agency attributed the
decline to an increase in government, auto, and
electrical manufacturing jobs and predicted the
rate would continue its decline until June.

The cost of justice
Thirty-seven federal and appellate judges filed
a complaint in the U.S. Court of Claims Thurs-
day, saying they are entitled to a 34.5 per cent
increase in pay and allowances to compensate
for inflation. They join 44 other federal judges
who filed af ist on Feb. 11, and their lawyer
- former supreme Court Justice Arthur Gold-
berg - said that the two suits will be con-
solidated, bringing the total number to 81. One
of the new complainants is District Judge Julius
Hoffman of Chicago, who presided over the stormy
trial of the "Chicago Seven" on charges stem-
ming from police riots at the 1968 Democratic
National Convention.
Peace without honor
The United States is to deliver a message
to the Democratic Peoples Republic of Vietnam
suggesting exploratory talks on establishing more
normal relations, Rep. Gillespie Montgomery (D-
Miss.) said yesterday. He said Secretary of State
Henry Kissinger had told him the message would
be delivered by the U.S. Embassy in Paris to
Vietnamese officials there. Montgomery added
that he hoped the U.S. initiative, if accepted
by Hanoi, would lead to the repatriation of the
remains of those known to have died in South-
east Asia.
So there
Hanoi's major newspaper, Nhan Dan, replied
yesterday to President Ford's assertion last week
that North Vietnam is governed by "a bunch of
international pirates." In an editorial broadcast
by the official North Vietnam News Agency, the
newspaper said Ford's comments 'were aimed at
pleasing the dark forces in the United States,"
which are "working out aggressive global strate-

gies of 'international pirates,' to use this phrase
in its fullest sense." The newspaper added that
"the North Vietnamese people firmly reject the
odious slanders of the Ford-Kissinger clique."
Two six-passenger gondola cars snapped loose
from their cables and plunged 100 feet to the
snowy slopes of Vail Mountain yesterday, killing
three persons, officials said. A spokesperson for
Vail Associates said eight other persons were
injured and an ambulance shuttle was set up
through the center of the ski resort community
to Vail Valley Medical Center. They saidsome
of the injured were being transported to St.
Anthony Hospital in Denver, and the identities
of the victims were not immediately available.

Argentine junta
names leader
From Wire Service Reports
BUENOS AIRES, Argentina - The United States recognized
Argentina's new military junta yesterday. The junta designated
the army commander, Gen. Jorge Videla, as president of the
Ruling with the 50-year-old Videla on the three-man junta are
the commanders of the air force and navy.
EIGHT PERSONS were reported killed in political violence
since the coup early Wednesday. Unchecked political violence that
claimed an estimated 1,700 lives during President Isabel Peron's
21 months in power was a key factor in her ouster.
The American note, calling for continuation of diplomatic
relations, was delivered by U.S. Ambassador Robert Hill to the
new military foreign minister, Adm. Antonio Vanek.
Yesterday, 48 hours after Mrs. Peron was overthrown in a
bloodless coup, the junta had intervened directly in a broad
spectrum of Argentine national life. f
THE NEW military rulers started a purge of the civil service
and moved to consolidate the power they intend to hold for at
least the next three years.
The junta already has reopened banks, lifted press censorship
and issued a stream of communiques outlining how they will run
the country during the initial five-day "clean-up" period.
They have also outlawed five leftist parties in a move to
check opposition.
INFORMED SOURCES said several hundred civil servants
have been fired and many arrested.

United States and Turkey
yesterday signed a military
agreement w h i c h, if ap-
proved by Congress, will re-
open some 26 U.S. military
bases that had been closed
by the Turks.
The agreement represents
a major step toward ending
the crisis of confidence that
has strained relations be-
tween the t w o countries

posed an arms embargo
against Turkey 13 months
the United States will re-

These facilities are a m o n g

agreement. U.S. privileges at
the Turkish sites were sus-
hpendedlast July, five months
after the arms embargo went
into effect.
The agreement, believed to
provide one billion dollars in
U.S. military aid to Turkey over
the next four years, was signed

DETAILS OF the agreement

Asked at the signing cere-

Party lines clash in Ward 3

between party ideologies than
a contest between individual
Both Republican incumbent
Roger Bertoia and Democratic
challenger Martin Black seem
to agree that little distance
separates their stands on a
number of issues. Instead, both
have chosen to recite party
rhetoric and attack the opposi-
tion's party platforms.
WHEN ASKED what distin-
guished his candidacy from
Black's, Bertoia replied, "The

difference is the parties we rep-
resent. You can't really cam-
paign against Black - it's like
punching at a balloon - you
campaign against the party,"
he said.
Black sees himself as repre-
sentative of "the Democratic
traditional interest in social
policies and social issues."
He charged in a public state-
ment that "Republicans tend to
spend money on things used by
a privileged few," while he and
other Democrats are more con-

cerned with the needs of the

Reckless drivers alarm
North Campus. students

A hazardous traffic problem on North Campus
is causing Bursley residents to think twice about
crossing Hubbard St.
Residents using University buses that stop on
Hubbard, behind Bursley, must cross that street
to reach the dorm. At least one Bursleyite has
been hit by a car this year while crossing Hub-
bard, and there have been other close calls
every day, according to Bursley staff and stu-
"STUDENTS cross in front and in back of the
bus while traffic is coming from the parking lot
and from Baits Housing, and this is where the
problem arises," explainedBursley Building Di-
rector Loretta Anderson.
"Sometimes cars just come barreling down the
street and don't even slow down for the stu-
dents," she said.
Although a state law requires traffic in both
directions to stop for a school bus which is load-
ing or unloading 'passengers, University buses

do not fall under the law's jurisdiction.

"I KNOW of two incidents in the three years
that I have been building director here where
students have been hit by cars after they've
gotten off the bus and started to cross that
street," Anderson said.
Grant Sutton, a Bursley resident, was struck
by a car on January 29 as he crossed from be-
hind the bus. He suffered a broken leg and was
hospitalized for over a month. Sutton's room-
mate, Eric Wilson, a member of the Bursley
Board of Governors, is one of the students push-
ing for quick action to solve the problem.
But students say they have been having a dif-
ficult time working their way through the Uni-
versity's bureaucratic maze.
WILSON and Richard Barr, another member
of the Bursley Board, last week presented to the
Regents a list of three proposals designed to
alleviate the danger to students exiting the bus
and crossing Hubbard.
