How to save your bike

It's 10:17 p.m. Thursday, June
28. and Jim Hutchinson is hard
at work on the sixth floor of
the Graduate Library. He gazes.
out the window, and sees two
figures kneeling by his ten-
speed bicycle.
He races downstairs, runs out
to the bike rack. Too late. his
bike is gone.
What can Jim do? If he'calls
the police, he will find he is
one of ten people to have' their
bikes stolen that day in Ann
Arbor --- one of about sixty-five
people to have their bikes stolen
that week.
Sgt. Harold Rady of the Ann
Arbor , Police Dept. estimates
that between fifty and seventy
bikes are stolen in Ann Arbor
each week. Including expensive

ten-speeds, which average about
$125 per bike, that represents
about $6250.
Many of the stolen bikes are
expensive ten-:speeds, which are
taken out of Ann Arbor and re-
sold in other locations. Some are
changed beyond recognition -
serial numbers are erased and
replaced. So the ordinance re-
quiring Ann Arbor bike stores
to file a report on any used
bikes they buy does not help.
According to Rady, the police
are just beginning to realize
the extent of the problem and
the size of the loss. The num-
ber of stolen bikes could dou-
ble or even triple in the fall.
Bike racks are under heavier
surveillance and the police dE'-
partinent is investigating means
of prevention and detection.

"We need citizen involve-
ment," says Rady. "It is only
logical the bike riders should
seek their own means of theft
If you ride your bike in Ann
Arbor or on campus and must
leave it unattended, always
lock it, Rady says.
The best type of chain, ac-
cording to Chuck Gilboe, of
Schlenker Hardware Store, is
made of case hardened steel,
one-half an inch thick, Most
riders lock their bikes with
chains that are one-quarter to
three-eights of an inch thick.

are heasv and cumbersome. A
chain with links less than one-
half of an inch thick can easily
be cipped with a fifty-dollar

BICYCLES provide one of the major modes of transportation in
the city-especially for students. Lately, 'however, they have also
become a prime target for rip-offs. All too often even a chain
and lock are not enough to discourage thieves from riding off on
your bike and selling it.

Regents to consider pay
lists, Willow Run today

The Regents will tackle a
number of questions ranging
from disclosure of salaries to
the status of Willow Run Lab-
oratories in their monthly meet-
ings tomorrow and Friday.
President Fleming's office will
ask the Regents to discuss
whether the salaries of Univer-
sity personnel should be open
to the public:
The discussion comes in the
wake of a request by the Daily
for a salary disclosure. In a
suit brought by the Bay City
Times recently, Delta College
and Saginaw Valley College
were ordered to make salary
figures public. The case is cur-
rently under appeal.

The salary discussion is sched-
uled for 11 a.n. on Friday.
Also under discussion will be a
number of legal matters involved
with the University's plan to
divest itself of the controversial
Willow Run research facilities.
The Willow Run labs are 'the
site of 90 per cent of the Uni-
versity's classified and military
