Compromise near on tankers

LANSING (UPI) - Hardliners on the
tandem tanker issue were thoroughly
routed yesterday as the state House
moved into position for a final vote on a
compromise measure banning the con-
troversial trucks. statewide in three
The bill, developed during extensive
negotiations involving legislative
leaders and industry representatives,
would ban gas-carrying tandem
tankers immediately in the tri-county
Detroit area. Gov. William Milliken has

already imposed a similar ban by
executive order.
IN THE rest of the state, the measure
would allow the allegedly unstable tan-
dems to continue to carry gasoline for
the next three years only if they are fit-
ted with special devices designed to
improve their safety. These devices
would be required after Oct.1.
Proponents of tougher legislation lost
a series of key votes yesterday - often
by huge margins.
Rep. Francis Spaniola, who chaired
the special House subcommittee on

tandems, angrily attributed the votes to
"arm-twisting" by the Michigan
Trucking Association.
Spaniola and others favored a
quicker and more comprehensive ban
and strongly objected to a provision in
the compromise bill which limits all
tankers to carrying 9,000 gallons.
This restriction prevents haulers with
large single tankers from gaining a
competitive advantage over those
which will be forced to use only the 9,000
gallon front section of their tandem

WCBN questions 'U' intervention

(Continued from Page 1
Miller said students currently hold all
the decision-making positions at the
station. He said non-students broadcast
and help in programming but do not set
policy at the station.
BUT JOHNSON said it is a contradic-
tion to have non-students working at a
student-operated facility.
The issue of staff composition at WC-
BN surfaced last July when University
President Robben Fleming asked John-
son to look into the matter. Fleming's
concern was prompted by a conver-
sation he had on an airplane with the
mother of a student who claimed her
son could not work on WCBN because
many places were taken up by former
Nat Colley, WCBN general manager,
said non-students have not prevented
students from working at the station.
He also said non-students have not in-
fringed on student prime air time.
JOHNSON SAID he believes the air-

time which non-students are using
could be filled by students. But Miller
argued that eliminating non-students
from the station would only mean the
remaining students would have to make
up for the extra air time.
Miller called the issue one of student
control over a student-operated radio
station. He said since the Regents own
the license they can do what they want
with the station, "but that doesn't make
it right."
But Johnson said the station shouldn't
be "an unlimited opportunity for non-
students." He said that while he has
heard the student arguments for
allowing non-students on WCBN, "the
case has not been made to quell the
concern (about student's opportunities
at the station).
"THE REGENTS are not being
responsive to what the students want,"
said Miller, pointing to a recent vote
where the majority of students at the
station were in favor of retaining non-

Regents lost their student-operated
radio station license due to "abandon-
ment" of their responsibility. MIller
said it would matter little in the end if a
non-student or a student caused WCBN
to go off the air.
Schumacher added that WCBN has
never had any problem with profanity
or violating other FCC regulations
during his tenure as director, "which is
rare if you talk to faculty advisors
around the country."

Filmed in Ceylong, this drama revolves around two professional soldiers,
Alec Guiness and Sessu Hayakawa, who are on opposite sides in WW II.
British prioners-of-war are forced to build a vital railroad bridge by their
Japanese captors. In time, both commanders come to understand each other
and find themselves working equally hard to finish the bridge. An exciting
climax with William Holden, an American soldier, blowing up the bridge,
dramatizing the madness and irony of war. Winner of the Academy Award
and New York Film Critics Award for Best Picture.
