Government allocates
annually for spying, r

city Piy week
pkinned in spite
ofcouncil vote
By DAVID WHITING
Gay spokespersons declared yesterday
that Gay Pride Week will still be held
even though a resolution calling for its
declaration was defeated by City Csun-
cil Monday night.
Councilwoman K a t h y Kozachenko
(HRP-Second Ward), a self-proclaimed
lesbian, made the announcement at a
press conference at City Hall. Koza-
chenko admitted she had "no hope the
resolution (calling for Gay Pride Week)
would pass."
MADELYN ELDER, a lesbian speak-
ing for the gay community, said that
council was used as a forum to bring
the problem of guy harassment to public
attention.
Elder said she and other supporters
of the Gay Pride Week proposal dem-in-
strated at Monday's council meeting to
educate the public.
While discussing alleged harassment
of gay people by the police department,
Kozachenko mentioned that she may
put a resolution before council next
week asking the police to keep a sepa-
rate file on gay harassment.
"THERE IS a distortion of gay dis-
ruption by the news media," she added,
claiming that the media "de-empha-
sized the Gay Pride Week resolution."
A press release on Gay Pride Week
distributed at the conference stated that
the week is "meant to be educational,
not confrontative." Its theme will be
"Gayness is healthy."
The week will start this Saturday with
a dance and will include a teach-in, a
blood drive, and demonstrations, among
other activities.

$6 billion
iport says
WASHINGTON ( --The authors of a
:ontested book about the CIA contend
the federal government is spending
about $6 billion a year on intelligence
and covert activities, and that much of
it is wasted.
The Central Intelligence Agency itself,
hey say, has an authorized strength of
6,500 but employs tens of thousands
more as mercenaries, agents, consultants
and so on. And they say its authorized
budget of $750 million yearly does not
include hundreds of millions more pro-
vided by the Pentagon.
THEIR BOOK, "CIA and the Cult of
Intelligence," argues that this cult-a
secret fraternity of the American politi-
cal aristocracy- seeks to further foreign
policies by covert and usually illegal
i ma- means.
The book was written, after litigation
going back more than two years, by
Victor Marchetti, a former executive
assistant to the CIA's deputy director,
and John Marks, a former State De-
partment official.
Marchetti has been ordered ly the
federal courts to Ir.bhsh nothing of a

University Club owes $80,000

By JANET HARSHMAN
The University Club, haunted since its
inception by ambiguities in its legal and
financial status, presently owes the Uni-
versity almost $10,000.
The University has covered the U Club
restaurant's payrolls for the last three
months, although the Regents Bylaws
state that the club is "a corporation un-
der the laws of the State of Michigan"
and that it is responsible "through reve-
nue from dues and other sources, to
meet its expenses."
ACCORDING to Chandler Matthews,
Controller of the University, the U Club

owes the University $79,000 as of the end
of May. So far, he says, "we haven't got-
ten that money back."
"That doesn't mean that's the club's
total obligation," he adds. "They may
owe others more."
Matthews concedes that the Univer-
sity's financial assistance could be re-
garded as a subsidy of the club, but he
adds., that no formal agreement exists
between the two organizations.
"WE DID NOT intentionally agree to
subsidize the U Club in that we'd under-
write them," Matthews explains. "They
give us money periodically as they get

money from us. It's a rotating, revolving
credit-type thing."
Matthews admits that the University
does not perform this "service" for any
other organization.
"The U Club is unique," he says. "It's
not in the University system in terms of
accounting like the Michigan Union or
the League so it doesn't have the same
relationship to other activities."
FURTHERMORE, Matthews says,
"we feel relatively close to what they're
trying to do."
While he claims that the University
will not provide an unlimited amount of

money for the operation of the U ('ub,
Matthews says the restaurant has no
deadline for returning the $79,000.
"Eventually," he says, "They will pay
back the money."
DORIN HINERMAN, president of the
Uninersity Club's board' of directors,
says the club is trying to cut back its
expenses to meet the debt. Moves to
"equalize" salaries, however, have met
with complaints from a number of cm-
loyes.
"Sooner or later we'd have to bite the
bullet in the equitable treatment of em-
