SAIGON - The U.S. State Department
dismissed yesterday as "ironic" an of-
fer by North Vietnamese premier Pham
Van Dong to normalize relations with
the United States if Washington lives up
to its 1973 peace agreement pledge to as-
sist in the reconstruction of North Viet-
nam. Department spokesman Robert An-
derson would not discuss in detail the
U.S. attitude toward the North Vietnam-
ese offer, other than to say the North
Vietnamese have committed "at least
wholesale violations" of the 1973 agree-
NEW YORK - City officials were
warned by the state yesterday that the
city had no alternative to acceptance of
a state agency to help solve its billion
dollar cash shortage. State officials claim
the city's solution to the crisis, the Mun-
icipal Assistance Corporation, also known
as "Big Mac," has defaulted on the
city's debt. Key city officials have ex-
pressed strong opposition to the propos-
al for a state agency which would con-
vert $3 billion or more of the city's
short-term debt to long-term debt. The
financial crisis has caused the city to
dismiss 5,000 of its 315,000 employes and
announce that 3,000 more would be dis-
missed by June 30.
BERKELEY, Calif. - Ralph Gleason,
highly respected jazz and rock music
critic, died of a heart attack Tuesday.
ie was 58. Gleason, a contributing edi-
tor of Rolling Stone, and a writer for
the San Francisco Chronicle for 25
years, suffered a heart seizure at his

home Monday.
NEW YORK - Some hospitals in the
New York City area have begun laying
off employes as a doctors' walkout over
malpractice insurance went into its
fourth day yesterday. New York's 19
municipal hospitals are not directly af-
fected by the job action, but officials
said the facilities are bracing for an
influx of patients from private hos-
pitals that are laying off staff or that
might close because of lack of income.
The medical crisis in New York was
precipitated by the Argonaut Insur-
ance Company's announcement that it
would levy premium increases of up to
300 per cent for malpractice coverage
for some physicians.
WASHINGTON - Strong opposition
emerged yesterday in Congress and
within the Ford administration to an
FBI proposal to create a national crim-
inal history data bank. A White House
spokesman said such a data b a n k
"could result in the absorption of state
and local criminal data systems into a
potentially abusive, centralized, federal-
ly-controlled communications and com-
puter information system."
DAWSONVILLE, Ga. - A World War
II bomber, its bomb bay doors open,
crashed in north Georgia Tuesday, kill-
ing both its passengers. An agent for the
Georgia Bureau of Investigation s a i d
some 40 bags of marijuana, each weigh-
ing 50 pounds, were scattered in t h e
wreckage of the B-25. The agent esti-
mated the street value of the weed at
DETROIT -- Detroit's budget crisis-

will hit home for at least 425 city em-
ployes whose layoffs take effect June 13.
City workers began getting layoff no--
tices this week, officials said. Hardest
hit will be the police, fire, environment-
al protection and maintenance (EPM)
and finance departments. Mayor Cole-
man Young has proposed 1,500 city em-
pJoye layoffs to cut $23 milion off the
payroll in his effort to balance the new
fiscal budget for the year.beginning July
Former Ann Arbor Sun Managing Ed-
itor Linda Ross has been ordered by a
federal jury to pay $40,000 in damages
to an undercover narcotics officer s h e
sued for assault. The case stems form a
June, 1973 incident in which Ross and
Sun reporter Mary Wretford photograph-
ed Detective Sgt. William Burns of the
Washtenaw Area Narcotics Team
(WANT). Burns reportedly rushed at
them, and attempted to smash the cam-
eras. Ross and Wretford filed a civil
suit in July, 1973, seeking $200,000 in
damages from Burns. Bums filed coun-
tercharges arguing he had been in-
tentionally inflicted with "emotional dis-
tress" by the two reporters. The case
finally came before a federal jury last
week. David Goldstein, attorney fur
Ross and Wretford called the decision
'an utter travesty of justice."
We will have those thunderstorms tap-
ering off to a mere whimper today. The
mercury should make its way up to
around 70 degrees.

DETROIT (UPI) Police union
and city officials have reached
a new agreement to avoid lay-
offs of 550 policemen planned
by Mayor Coleman A. Yosng
to trim the city budget.
The agreement came after
two days of negotiations order-
ed by U.S. District Judge Da-
mon Keith following last Tiurs-
day's rejection by members of
the Detroit Police Officers As-
sociation (DPOA) of a similar

agreement," said DPOA Presi-
dent Ronald Sexton. "It is not
everything we would like. I
think it is a good agreement to
avoid layoffs."
Under the agreement, police
will still take 14 days off with-
out pay. But instead of seven
extra days of paid compensa-
tory time off they will get 10
paid off-days, for a total of 24
pre-scheduled days off the job.
A police officer's first 10 days
of sick time will be charged
against the 24 days of sched-
uled time off under the a e w
agreement. The old agreement
provided that the first seven
days of sick time would be treat-
ed this way.
proved by the nine-iember

DPOA executive board and it
went to the DPOA board of di-
rectors yesterday. It will go to
the rank-and-file for radification
Deputy Mayor William Beck-
man said the new 13-rionth
agreement differs little from
the previous one and will c o s t
the city no additional money.
After the DPOA defeated the
original proposal last week, Sex-
ton said he voted "no" on it
to express his distrust of mem-
bers of the city administration.
WHEN THE agreement w a s
announced in Keith's courtroom
Tuesday night, Keith said his
court "would not look with fav-
or on any party to the agree-
ment retracting, rescinding, at-

tempting to modify, reneging or
failing to act in good faith.'
"It would be contemptuous to
make an agreement is federal
court and then ren.:ge on it,"
Keith said. "This suct wilt iot
allow it."
Keith also instruc-d Sexton
and the DPOA execati it ionrd
to provide leadership for the
new proposal.
"Without your help and t h e
help of your execu'ive bard,
this package will go down the
drain," Keith said.
