In the news this morning

WASHINGTON - A massvie compromise
pension reform bill, hailed as one of the most
important measures of this Congress, sailed
through the House yesterday amid Republican
predictions that President Ford will sign it.
The House vote, sending it to the Senate for
final action, was 407-2, with only Reps. James
Collins, (R-Tex.), and Earl Landgrebe, (R-
Ind.), in dissent. Supporters said the bill's
major goal is assuring that workers who are
promised retirement benefits will actually get
them. While the bill would not force compan-
ies to provide pension plans, it would set
rules for existing ones and any started from
now on.
WASHINGTON - The House yesterday
slashed by nearly half the proposed $20 billion
for mass transit expenditures for the remaind-
er of this decade, trimming it to the $11 bil-
lion level requested by President Ford. The
257-155 vote came after Rep. William Harsha,

(R-Ohio), warned that Ford would veto the
bill even it if was pared to the compromise
$15.8-billion level. Ford called for severe
reductions in the authorization to fight infla-
AMARILLO, Tex. - A group of rebellious
inmates, armed with knives from the prison
kitchen, yesterday released one of -two host-
ages they took Monday night. The prisoners
demanded bread, a car and money for an es-
cape attempt. Jailer Don Sidwell carried out of
the Potter County jail on a stretcher by sher-
iff's officers who said Sidwell's hip was in-
jured shortly after the takeover late Monday
night. The inmates still held another j a i 1
guard, Stan Snitker.
It's going to be sunny, hot and humid again
today, with a high temperature of about 90.
Lows tonight will be near 60. Winds today will
be southerly at about 10 to 18 mph.

"The Tower's Better Way of Life"
The UniversIty Towers is designed with
the comforts of the student in mind. At
the Towers you don't have the hassel
that many people have experienced with
landlords. You hve more time to devote
to studies, and members and activities
of society that interest you. Life is cm-
plicated enough, why complicate it more
by not living here?
Location-The Towers are ideally lo-
cated being two blocks from West
Individual Leases - Which means you
are responsible for only your por-
tion of the rent. Many times three
or more people will rent a house
together and something always
happens, it might be getting mar-
ried, dropping out of school, or
not having enough money, in any
case the remaining roommates have to find a new roommate or pay a higher rent.
8 Month Lease-You rent the apartment for the time most people are in school, and
you're not stuck trying to find someone to rent it to in the summer.
Maid Service-Once a week a maid comes in to clean the place up. Which consists of
vacuuming, mopping, and dusting.
Maintenance Crews-We have a full staff to correct, and make any necessary repairs.
You can't appreciate this to its fullest extent until you have experienced the hassle
of trying to get a landlord to make needed repairs.
Tight Security-There is o security guard on duty at night, and the front door is always
locked. Visitors can buzz you from the lobby, and you can talk to them and unlock
the door from your room.
Recreation Room-Pool tables, ping pong tables, and snacks.
Pool-Go for a dip in between classes in our heated swimming pool.
Special Rooms-Study room, piano room, laundry room, lounge with a color TV. We
also show popular movies.
Only $50.00 deposit.
Kitchen-Eat what and when you want to. Students who have lived in the dorm know
what it's like not having breakfast on the day of a big exam, and having thirteen
regulated meals a week. At the Towers you eat what and when you want to.
With all these conveniences it would seem that the Towers would be very expensive to live in.
However this is not the case. Check our prices and what we have to offer with the other
available Ann Arbor housing. Come in and look at the various different apartments we have.
We'll be glad to see You, and you'll be glad you did.
