By JOHN GOYER

In an effort to distribute the financial
burden of local sewage treatment im-
provements, City Administrator
Sylvester Murray proposed to City
Council Monday night a sewage sur-
charge on new building developments
as an alternative to the city-wide 23 per
cent rate hike now in the proposed 1979-
80 city budget.
The proposed increase would cover
the costs of hauling excess sludge and
costs related to the expansion of the
sewage treatment plant. The plant is

schedules will remain the same.
Free Ernie who?
Signs posted around the University Hospital, on
.State Street, and at the Juvenile Court Building
demand that the public "Free Ernie." Ernie who,
you may ask. Is Ernie a political prisoner? Is he a
dissident from a South American country? Or are
the posters simply advertising the availability of a

new product monickered "Ernie?" Wrong, wrong,
and wrong. Ernie Bickland is a nine-year-old foster
child, an inpatient at the University Children's
Psychiatric Hospital. Ernie's former foster paren-
ts, Richard and Jill Hall of South Lyon, claim Er-
nie's tenure at the hospital for nine months is
"illegal". Ernie has been in the custody of the
Washtenaw County Friend of the Court since 1973,
when his natural parents divorced. The Halls are
trying to find out why the Friend of the Court took
custody of Ernie after he spent five years in their
care, and apparently they decided a poster cam-
paign wuld bolster their efforts.
Correction I
In the Daily's article on executive committees
which appeared in the April 15 issue, it was in-
correctly reported that only two colleges at the
University currently have students serving on their
executive committees. In fact, the School of
Education has three students serving in a non-
voting capacity on the college's executive commit-
tee. Unlike the executive committees on the College
of Architecture and Urban Planning and the School
of Public Health however, students in the School of
Education are barred from Executive Committee
meetings when personnel matters-promotions,
tenure considerations-are discussed and decided.
Carol Luckhardt, a senior in the School of Education
and a member of the executive committee, said
even though student input is important she would
like to see the University move to allow students on
executive committees 'to vote on all matters. "I'd
like to see more power for students," said Luckhar-
dt.

Correction II
An article in the last Daly erroneously reported
that on April 20 the University's Regents passed a
resolution calling for a "socially responsible prac-
tices" committee to be comprised of four minority
students, two staff members, two faculty, one
Regent, and one administrator. The resolution
passed actually referred the matter back to the
University's vice-presidents to consider the
feasability of such a committee.
