ANKAPRA, Turkey (P) - Declaring the
U.S. arms embargo "both unjust and
wrong in all its aspects," Turkey de-
manded yesterday that the United States
open negotiations on the future of its
bases in Turkey.
A note delivered to the U.S. Embassy
ordered that negotiations begin within
30 days. It said that if "action is not
taken to initiate the talks" the U.S. mili-
tary installations will be subjected "to
a new situation." There was no elabora-

stallations are the Incirlik Air Base for

nuclear bombers and three intelligence-
gathering bases.
Turkey has been threatening to t a k e
action against the U.S. bases ever since
Congress cut off American arms aid to
Ankara last winter over the Turkish in-
vasion of Cyprus. The Congress voted the
embargo because the Turks used Amer-
icans arms in the invasion last July and
subsequently took no steps to withdraw.
Under pressure from Secretary of
State Henry Kissinger, and after the
Greek and Turkish Cypriots resumed ne-
gotiations, the U.S. Senate voted last
month to rescind the ban. But the House
of Representatives has taken no action
yet, and the Turkish note was seen as
an attempt to pressure the House into
quick action.

TURKEY "has waited in vain for re-
versal of the American decision, which
is both unjust and wrong in all its as-
pects," declared Foreign Minister Sabri
"It was finally imperative for Turkey
to consider retaliatory action as our hop-
es were upset by a growing anti-Turkish

spokesman Robert Anderson said t h e

would be no comment "until we have a

He renewed the administrations calls
on Congress to lift the arms embargo.
"We should like to see this bill passed

at tne earliest," he said.
DEFENSE Department officials have
voiced concern that the arms embargo
could eventually lead to a loss of U.S.
bases in Turkey.
The Turkish note was delivered the
morning after Turkey's authoritative Na-
tional Security Council reported it had
given Premier Suleyman Demirel a pack-
age of "proposals containing measures to
be implemented against U.S. interests in
Turkey." Reliable sources said these
included a timetable for the withdrawal
of U.S. forces from Turkey.
The council declared that Turkey had
been "seriously humiliated by the ac-
tions of a trusted ally".

City, police face
heated arbitration
on new contract
A heated arbitration period between the city and
its police command officers union is now virtually
inevitable following Council's Monday night nixing of
the union's Teamster-engineered contract.
The two year pact, which would have been retro-
active to July 1, 1974, called for an 11 per cent annual
average wage hike as well a written guarantee that
none of the 34 police sergeants, lieutenants or captains
represented by the union would be laid off. These
provisions, along with the contract's $50,000 budget
overrun, provoked Council Democrats to kill the Re-
publican-supported contract proposal in a 5-5 vote.
BINDING arbitration sessions are tentatively slated
to begin the first week in July, and will last at least
two or three days, according to city and police nego-
tiators. The board of three arbitors-one representing
the city one speaking for the union and a third neutral
representative-will take an estimated 30 days to hand
over their binding decision.
The give-and-take arbitration session will in all like-
lihood be a tumultuous one for both the city and the
union. Several factors, however, appear to spell suc-
cess for the command officers as they gear up for yet
another round of contract talk.
State Act 312, which gives police and fire fighters
binding arbitartion, presents one of the highest hurdles
for the city. In a strongly worded memo to Council
members last week, City Administrator Sylvester
Murray claimed that the state law binds cities to con-
tracts which he says ultimately favor the unions.
BLASTING the contract proposal offered to the city,
Murray said: "Act 312 means there was not free col-
lective bargaining between the - city and the unions.
The Teamsters knew that historically unions get a
better deal from 312 arbitration and cities lose more."
While Murray stated that the salary increases were
"too high," he recommended that Council approve the
pact because "it could be worse in overall in 312
In his memo Murray also included statistics from the
current Michigan League Newsletter which show the
"high cost of compulsory ± arbitration" that cities
usually incur as a result of arbitration with police.
THE STATISTICS showed that in 32 cases reviewed
under the last best offer arbitration procedure estab-
lished in Michigan in 1972, arbitrators awarded salary
hikes in the first contract year averaging 10.45 per
cent for police. This figure exceeds Murray's request
to city negotiators to hold all worker pay hikes to
single digit percentages in order to meet stringent
budget guidelines.

Meal op tioscurtaled

The University plans to sharply curtail the dormitory
meal rebate option as part of an effort to reduce
housing costs for next fall, according to University
Housing Director John Feldkamp.
Under the new procedure, which Keldkamp estimates
will save the dorm system $40-$50,000, students re-
questing meal rebates for reasons of conscience would
be required to submit evidence of their beliefs from a
recognized "spiritual leader" and a diet they plan to
AS FOR THE "avante-garde believer," Feldkamp
commented, "I don't think we're about set to accept
the individual faiths," and indicated that he expected
the number of student rebates approved for reasons of
conscience to number "no more than 100" next year.
Feldkamp wavered on whether he would allow stu-
dents affected by the new plan to cancel their dorm

contracts. "I'm not ready to say a firm yes or no,"
he insisted despite the fact that the rebate decision
came after the cancellation deadline.
The meal rebate program, which began four years
ago to reimburse Black Muslim and Kosher students,
provided grocery money for over 400 students last
year, who for one reason of conscience or another,
couldn't stomach the dorm fare.
PROPOSALS for tightening the restrictions, increas-
ingly lax over the years, have been discussed by the
Housing Cost Reduction Committee for the past month.
This student-administration group was devised by
Feldkamp to discuss ways to reduce the Housing Of-
fice's projected $250,000 deficit in next year's budget.
The new meal rebate procedure met student oppo-
sition in the committee, according to member Irving
Freeman. "We didn't vote," Freeman said, "we dis-
cussed it. He (Feldkamp) felt there wasn't enough
