Poge Six
Legislature to consider

student loan
By DAN BLUGERMAN
A central state loan authority
for college and university stu-
dents would be created under
two bills currently in both
branches of the Michigan Legis-
lature.
Bills introduced by State Sen-
ator Gilbert Bursley (R-Ann Ar-
bor) and State Representative
Perry Bullard (D-Ann Arbor)
would "establish a central loan
authority to isse tax-free bonds
and make guaranteed loans to
student residents.
BULLARD said the state cur-
rently has a $30 million student
aid deficit. Almost 10,000 stu-
dents certified needy by their
college financial aid offices
were denied aid during the fis-
cal year 1973.
Only 50 per cent of those
needy students denied aid actu-
ally enrolled in school com-
pared to the 90 per cent -enroll-
ment rate for needy students
awarded financial aid, Bullard
noted.
Compared to other major in-
dustrial states, Michigan lags
far behind in providing student
loans under the existing seven
federal loan programs.
According to Bollard, in New
York, Pennsylvania and New

authority
Jersey $304.8 million was col-
lectively available in federally
insured and re-insured guaran-
teed loans last year, while only
$16.1 million was available in
Michigan.
HE SAID this was because
"only 49 per cent of the private
commercial lenders potentially
eligible to participate in the
program actually did so and 64
per cent of these made fewer
than 11 loans."
After the second year of op-
eration, the loan program would
be self-supporting as a result of
student loan repayment and the
special federal interest allow-
ance. to lenders according to
Bullard.
Locally, Huron Valley Na-
tional Bank's Assistant Manager
Mark Quimet said the student
loan situation is "very tight."
However, this was not the senti-
ment registered at two other
city banks.
ANN ARBOR Bank and Trust
Assistant Vice President Dave
Weston said there is money
available for students who have
been deposit- customers - for
three or more years and will
continue to be for as many qual-
ified students apply.
Ry Barsyk, vice president of
National Bank and Trust said
the volume of applications were
greatly in excess of last year,
but that "everybody except
transient students was taken
care of."
A concern voiced by Univer-
sity Financial Aid Director
Thomas Butts was for a bal-
ance between loans and grants
given students.
A SECOND bill introduced by
Bullard on Monday will answer
this sentiment by providing for
a state work-study program.

Mndszenty dies
Joszef Cardinal Mindszenty, shown here on trial in 1949, died yesterday of heart failure. Minds-
zenty, who was 83, spent his last years in what he once termed "complete and absolute exile." He
was regarded in the West as a monument of resistance against Communism.
Keystone Kops ride again

PONTIAC, Mich. (P) - In
the tradition of the Keystone
Kops, a police car was stolen by
a hitchhiker, officers chased
each other around rural Oakland
County looking for it, and one
cop shot his own car.
"This kinda stuff just ain't
supposed to happen," a perplex-
ed officer said in trying to ex-
plain the incident in which a de-
puty sheriff also shot another
police car and two cruisers were
wrecked.
SGT. DAVID Odett, 29, a six-
year veteran on the Pontiac
Township police force, said the
trouble began when he stopped a
hitchhiker Sunday night.
Odett put the hitchiker in the
back seat of his cruiser while he
went to retrieve a paper bag he
saw the man throw in some

bushes. The hitchhiker leaped
over the seat and took off in the
police car and left Odett holding
the bag-which contained a bot-
tle of wine and two bottles of
beer,
Odett fired a shot and flatten-
ed a rear tire on his own police
car, but the cruiser kept going.
Then, using his portable radio,
he called for help. The only oth-
er officer patrolling the town-
ship sped off to help and a coun-
tywide alert was issued for the
stolen cruiser.
BUT UNKNOWN to authori-
ties, it had already been aban-
doned in an Oakland University
parking lot by the hitchhiker,
who fled on foot.
As police continued to search
for the missing car, two univer-
sity policemen patrolling in sep-

acrate cruisers spotted the other
Pontiac Township officer res-
ponding to his comrade's call
for help and started chasing his
police car, thinking it was the
stolen vehicle.
Then, Deputy Charles Eno
parked his cruiser across the
road to stop the speeding ve-
hicle-actually the second town-
ship patrol car-and fired a shot
as it came toward him.
WITH PERFECTaim, he shot
out the left front tire. The car
ground to a halt and the startled
Pontiac Township officer emer-
ged.
But the second university po-
lice car still was in hot pursuit.
Unable to stop, it plowed into
the roadblock. Both the deputy's
car and the university/police car
were damaged extensively, but
no one was injured.
The stolen police car was re-
covered an hour later in the
parking lot. The hitchhiker who
took it had fled, but left behind
his driver's license-attached to
a clipboard where Sgt. Odette
had placed it before going to in-
vestigate the mysterious brown
bag.
A warrant charging a Roches-
ter man with car theft was ob-
tained by police Monday.
