Council OKs
pot ordinance
(Continued fromaPoge 1)
bill a "step in the direction" to-
wards legalization of marijuana.
He also said that the new law
"will hopefully serve notice that
the City Council does not want
the police to bust" people for
pot.
Mayor Robert Harris support-
ed the ordinance as "imagina-
tive lawmaking" and said the
bill "goes as far as possible to
trivialize" marijuana prohibi-
tion.
There was also dissent to the
new ordinance. Council member
John McCormack (R-Fifth Ward)
said the new ordinance was a
"magnet for the dope culture"
and believed that it would make
Ann Arbor the "dope center of
the midwest."

Millage proposals
on Detroit 'ballot

MIXED BOWLING LEAGUES

DETROIT (JP) - Detroiters will
determine the financial fate of
their schools systems today as
they go to the polls to vote on
two important millage proposals.
If either or both proposals are
defeated today Detroit will be
forced to institute half-day ses-
sions for elementary school
children, reduce its teaching
staff by one third, increase its
class size, and eliminate ath-
letics from all high schools, ac-
cording to Dr. Robert Luby, di-
rector of health and physical
education for the school system.
One proposal would continue
the present five-mill tax which
expires on June 30 for another
two years. The other proposal
asks an increase of five-mills.
"We need the five-mills plus
the five-mill increase just to
keep the present $40-million
deficit for the whole system
from mounting to $100 million,"
Luby said. "If one of these pro-
posals fails that is enough to
doom our whole athletic pro-
gram."

If the current millage is con-
tinued with no increase, Luby
said the schools probably will be
able to continue their physical
education classes but still will
have to eliminate varsity com-
petition.
Between 6.000 and 8,000 stu-
dents in the Public School
League participate in varsity
sports. The PSL's operating bud-
get for the current school year
is $569 000, Luby said.
According to Luby the School
system is already operating on a
"bare survival level" and major
cutbacks will have to be made if
the millage proposals are de-
feated.
A shortened school year and
the possibility of a three or four
day school week are being con-
sidered Luby reported.
"I feel more optimistic than
last week about this," said Luby.
"The mayor, both newspapers
and most of the major institu-
tions in the city support passage
and we are hopeful that the
proposals will pass."
