By TIM YAGLE
A special type of "bait money" which
explodes and releases tear gas foiled a
robbery from the Plymouth Rd. branch
of Great Lakes Federal Savings yester-
day morning, according to Ann Arbor
police.
Police said a black male in his mid-
2ls walked into the bank at 11:22 a.m.
wielding a plastic toy gun and deman-
ded money from the teller. The teller
handed the man "several hundred
dollars" of "bait money," which ex-

plodes upon contact with oxygen and
releases tear gas and a dye. Police said
the man, who wore a white T-shirt,
khakis, and a golf hat, apparently jum-
ped out of his car near Plymouth and
Nixon Roads "a matter of minutes"
later.
Police said yesterday a possible
suspect who "has been involved in
other criminal activity" remains at
large. The incident is still under in-
vestigation.

EARLIER, DEFENSE Secretary
Harold Brown told the committee the
administration expects defense spen-
ding to increase about $2 billion to $2.5
billion a year during the life of the
treaty which expires at the end of 1985.
If the treaty is not approved, said
Brown, defense spending would in-
crease by $5 billion to $8 billion a year
during the same period.
While acknowledging that the balan-
ce between U.S. and Soviet strategic
strength "will be less favorable in the
early 1980s than it is now." Brown said
SALT II "will produce a more
favorable balance for the United States
during its duration than we would have
without it."
THE SECRETARY said overall U.S.
strategic forces maintain superiority
over the Soviets, although the Soviet
land-based missile force is stronger
than that part of the U.S. arsenal.

Brown disputed arguments that the
Soviet lead in the size of warheads is a
significant advantage. He noted that
earlier U.S. missiles were bigger and
carried heavier payloads.
Brown said that based on conver-
sations with NATO defense ministers,
rejection of SALT II "will shake the
alliance very badly and cause at least
some of its countries to reconsider their
security arrangements."
BROWN AGREED with the estimate
of Sen. Joseph Biden, (D-Del.), that
even if the Soviets were willing to give
up their entire force of 308 heavy
missiles, it would only reduce the Soviet
threat by ten per cent, and the U.S.
missile force still would be threatened
by a first strike.
After getting. Brown's response,
Biden said an amendment to reduce the
Soviet heavy missile force "is merely
meant to kill the treaty, nothing more."

iel OK's heating assistance bill

LANSING (UPI) - A bill extending
the state's home heating assistance
program slipped through the House
yesterday, but lawmakers squabbled at
length over tax hikes designed to fund
the subsidies.
The bill extending the program -
which helps pay the fuel bills of the
elderly and low income families -
passed, 93-0, and went to the Senate
without debate.
ADVANCED INTO position for a final
vote was legislation hiking the oil and
gas severance taxes paid by the
petroleum industry. The oil severance
tax would go from two per cent to eight
per cent and the gas levy from two per
cent to four per cent.
A final vote on the bill - expected to
raise about $40 million - may be put off
until the fall.
The home heating assistance
program always has been popular in
the legislature, but earlier this year
Gov. William Milliken recommended
discontinuing to help balance the
budget.
MILLIKEN reversed himself earlier
this week, but it is widely agreed that
new tax revenues will be needed to keep
the program going.
The home heating assistance grants
are expected to cost between $30 million
and $40 million in the coring fiscal

year.
The House-passed bill extends the
program through the 1981 tax year and
creates a cost of living escalator for
benefits starting in 1980.
The severance tax hikes, proposed by
Rep. Perry Bullard (D-Ann Arbor),
have faced stiff opposition from the
petroleum industry, the state Chamber
of Commerce and many Republicans.
BULLARD'S original proposal to
raise the taxes to ten per cent was
pared down in the House Taxation.
Committee to six per cent.
By the narrowest possible vote, the
House approved an amendment raising
the oil severance tax to eight per cent
and dropping the gas severance tax to
four per cent.

Rep. Louis Cramton (R-Midland),
said a tax on Michigan's natural gas
will have a more direct impact on
Michigan residents than a tax on oil,
because much of the gas produced here
is sold in the state.
The House rejected amendments for
a smaller oil tax increase.
Cramton said it is only fair for
petroleum companies to bear "part of
the cost of the hardship that inflation on
their product is causing a lot of people
in this state who cannot do anything
about it."
"A 100 per cent increase in the
current rate is about all we should
stand for," said House Republican
Leader William Bryant of Grosse Poin-
te Shores.
