"The situationrcould become
critical next year, if our man-
power is not markedly increas-
ed," Krasny adds.
THE OTHER department heads
tell much -the same story:
Despite enough funds to add six
men and another truck to the
Fire Department, the depart-
ment's capabilities have been
termed "very close to the critical
level" by Sheehan.

"dismissed by
Circuit Court
(Continued from Page 3)
George Maurer, attorney f or
McCracken, claimed at the hear-
ing that the union officers were
willing to settle the dispute out
of court, offering to allow Jos-
lyn and his supporters to hire
their own accountant to examine
the books.
HOWEVER, when Joslyn's at-
torney, David Goldstein, asked
whether the defense wold agree
to make the offer legally bind-
ing, Maurer declined, claiming
the Broom Committee was "mak-
ing use of this court for their
political purposes."
Broom union presidential can-
didate Jim Hines denied this
later. "We tried to bring this up
two years ago. We didn't bring
up a slate until he (McCracken)
denied us access."
Hines said the. suit had serv-
ed a purpose despite the dis-
missal. "The membership knows
what the score is," he remarked.
"The ony way to beat the man
is to replace the man."

complying with city anti-discrim-
ination statutes had its budget
cut from the present level.
HRD director James Slaughter,
contends his office will be seri-
ously impaired by the cutback.
"The department initiated
cases will drop significantly if
we don't receive more funds,"
Slaughter says.
HE CLAIMS the budget alloca-
tion may indicate city govern-
ment refuses to recognize the
needs of discriminated against
minorities in the community.
Sheehan syas the HRD budget,
was decreased "because there is
not that much of a human rights
problems in Ann Arbor."
To counter the loss of funds
Slaughter claims he will not
"completely ignore budgetary
restraints" but will fully pros-
ecute complaints regardless of
ordinates the Building and Safety
department, predicts that unit
could not complete the number of
building inspections required by
law because of budgetary prob-
"There may well be severe
problems especially in the area
of' fire protection," Rothbart
comments. His department must
also enforce the unit pricing and
non-returnable bottle ordinances.
Building and Safety will be un-
able to adequately insure com-
pliance with these laws, ac- .
cording to Rothbart.
THE CITY'S austerity budget
has forced departments to tritn
the fat from their opperations.
But apparently a lot of muscle
has been cut ,away as well.
The budget contains no leeway,
no frills, and perhaps just not
enough money to go around.
Unfortunately the money crisis
in local government extends be-
yond fiscal 1974. In the future
the budget squeeze will become
tighter and city services may
become even less efficitent.

could have failed to see the dis-
honesty on the part of the gov-
ernment," he said.
Judge Byrne said a prelimi-
nary study of the motion for ac-
quittgl indicated there were in-
sufficient grounds; but that the
dismissal insured that neither
Ellsberg nor Russo would be
tried again on the same charge.
JUDGE MATT BYRNE, who ASKED HIS immediate plans,
dismissed all charges against Ellsberg said: "I'm going to
Daniel Ellsberg yesterday. make love to my wife."

IN THE OTHER major Water-
gate development, Saturday edi-
tions of the Baltimore Sun re-
ported that ex-FBI chief Gray
telephoned Nixon shortly after
the June 17 bugging raid.
Quoting government sources
the Sun said Gray told federal
investigators he received "no re-
action" from the President when
he expressed his concern that
the FBI and CIA were being
"used" by persons close to Nixon.
and ABC Television publicized
similar accounts.
In his April 30 nationwide TV
address, Nixon flatly denied all
knowledge of a Watergate cover-
up until March of this year.
In other Watergate develop-

glary of Daniel Ellsberg spsy-

-Former Atty. Gen. John Mit-
chell, indicted on charges of con-
spiracy to obstruct justice and
defraud the United States, took a
leave of. absence yesterday from
one of Wall Street's most pres-
tigious law firms.
House advisor John Connally took
a similar leave of absence from
his Texas law firm after it was
disclosed the firm represents a
Houston company whose presi-
dent is under grand jury ques-
tioning about a $100,000 Nixon
campaign contribution linked to
the Watergate bugging.

manager, thinks PIRGIM "exag-
gerates quite a bit. I don't think
it's as bad as they make it out
to be."
"WE TRY to keep our own
place as clean as possible," he
One Gino's m a n a g e r said
"there's no way I'm going to run
a dirty store." However, he did
say that "the place does get a
little dirty at times," especially
during rush eating periods.
"But it doesn't stay dirty for
long," he says.
WASHTENAW County was peg-
ged at level III-"marginal" sta-
tus which "requires immediate
action to meet public health
needs." The evaluation is made
on the basis of "average demerit
scores" of food establishments
within the jurisdiction of the
agency being evaluated.
David Hodgson, Assistant Chief
of the Division of Food Services
Sanitation of the MDPH feels
there is "some validity" to the
report, but did not agree with

the way some of the statistics
were interpreted.
On the whole, Hodgson feels
less than 10 per cent of the fast
food restaurants are not in com-
pliance with state laws.
Hodgson admits that "problems
with employes will happen. I
don't dispute that a bit."
HE FEELS, however, that the
gruesome stories cited in the re-
port are "isolated incidences"
which don't necessarily indicate
that the whole industry operates
that way.
If the report is widely circu-
lated, "it could be very damag-
ing to the food industry," Hodg-
son adds.
