THE PLAN makes the Golan Heights
and the Gaza Strip - captured from
Syria and Egypt, respectively, in the
1967 war - permanent parts of the state
of Israel, said party chief Meir Zarmi.
It establishes the Jordan River as Is-
rael's final security border but leaves
the sovereignty of occupied west Jordan
open to negotiations, Zarmi told a meet-

Zarmi said the plan was the "clear,
final map" which critics here and abroad
have called on the' government to pro-
duce, showing the borders that Israel
wants in a peace settlement.
Labor party spokesman Zvi Harmor,

tablished planks in the party platform,
but the "word map" put the principles
together in final, definite form.
Harmor said the plan was put together
in three meetings before Rabin left for
talks in Washington with President Ford
and Secretary of State Henry Kissinger
last week.
HE SAID the meetings were attended

HE SAID the plan made no mention
of Jerusalemi because the Arab half of
the Holy City already had been annexed
and was a permanent part of Israel.
But Jordan could be given sovereignty
over Moslem holy places in Jerusalem
according to established Labor policy,
and the Vatican could control Christian
holy sites, the party spokesman said.

Washington protesters
remember Rosenbergs

Special To The Day
WASHINGTON - 22 years
ago yesterday Julias and Ethel
Rosenberg were executed in
Sing Sing Prison after being con-
victed of conspiring to give the
Soviet Union secret information
about the atomic bomb. .
The celebrated case was a
headline grabber then - at the
height of the "red scare" era-
and the attention didn't die' with
the Rosenbergs.
MANY people, including the
Rosenberg's sons, Robert and
Michael Meeropol, believed the
couple was unfairly convicted in
a trial they claim turned out to
be a sham.
Consequently they want the
entire case reopened and are
pressing the FBI and the Justice
Dept. to release classified. ma-
terials on the affair.
To dramatize their campaign,
about 50 members of the Nation-

al Committee to Reopen the
Rosenberg Case yesterday pick.
eted the front of the Justice
Dept. building here.
CARRYING signs that read
"End the McCarthy era" and
'T'he FBI's 20-year-old Water-
gate - The Rosenberg Case --
open / the secret files," they
passed out leaflets to hundreds
of sightseers waiting to tour the
FBI, which is housed in the
Justice building.
Many of the tourists curtly
refused the literature as they
stood in a blistering noonday
sun sipping soda and munching
over-priced hot dogs.
"They (the Rosenbergs) got
what they deserved," a man
from Kentucky said. "I'm just
sorry the government took so
long in giving it to them."
BUT the demonstrators re-
mained undaunted.

The Ann Arbor Transporta-
tion Authority (AATA) Board
has adopted a proposed $3.5
million operating budget for the
1975-76 fiscal year. After the
board's unanimous approval of
the budget, AATA "Chairman
William Drake said it meant
that "fiscal year 1975-76 will be
the first year of full TELTRAN
Drake called the TELTRAN
system a "hybrid." Under the
25 cent-per-ride system, a com-
plete network of neighborhood
Dial-a-Ride services would pro-
vide door-to-door transportation
within each neighborhood, and
would also act as a "feeder"
system for the city's regular ex-
press trunk lines. Drake pre-
dicted the city would get a com-
plete network of the small Dial-
a-Ride vans by Thanksgiving.
system will be the result of
more than two years of slow
progress towards the improve-
ment of public transportation in
the city. Since April 1973, when
voters approved an annual 2.5
mills (about $1.6 million) to sup-
port an improved transportation
system, there have been num-

erous delays in getting the pro-
gram on the road,
"The problem is, simply, de-
livery of equipment," Drake
said. He explained it can take
anywhere from six to nine
months for the AATA to get the-
equipment it orders. He also
pointed out that an additional
10-30 days is often required for
acceptance tests.
Public support for the pro-
gram hasn't been entirely unani-
mous. Charles Chadwick, a resi-
dent of the southeast side, at-

plaints, AATA Executive Direc-

2nd milage
The Ann Arbor school board, faced with the
specter of heavy budget cuts, may return to the
voters this fall with a millage increase request
similar to one defeated two weeks ago.
While another election could be arranged as
soon as late August or early September, many
school board members believe the question of a
tax hike should wait until economic conditions
improve and other factors more favorable for a
millage approval begin to take effect.
BOARD PRESIDENT Clarence Dukes yester-
day called a fall millage increase proposal "a
definite possibility," adding, "I'd rather go for-
that than not at all."
Dukes, who finished first in the June 9 school
board election, said "it would seem a little bit
foolhardy" to pose the millage proposition this
summer. He noted that much of the University
community and public school system staff is away
from the city during the summer-persons who
could generally be expected to back such in-
"How would we reach those people?" Dukes
asked. "And also, what's changed? Unless the
economy changes, I would say 'why go back?' "

THE VOTING public, Dukes added, might think
the board was "precipitous or arrogant" if pre-
sented with another millage request so quickly.
Although city voters approved two millage
renewal requests this month by better than 2-1
margins, they turned down the 1.5 mill increase
proposal by less than 800 votes.
The additional levy on property taxes would
have brought in approximately $1.3 million year
until 1979.
"THE NEED still exists," emphasized board
trustee Cecil Warner. He interpreted the senti-
ment of the board at their special executive ses-
sion Wednesday night, however, as negative to-
ward the idea of a summer ballot issue.
Warner, who was head of the school district's
millage campaign this year, favors a September
ballot issue-when "parents are always reminded
how nice it is to have schools."
The economic atmosphere in September is also
favorable, according to Warner, because taxpay-
ers are not yet into the costly Christmas season
or their year-end tax bills.
BUT HE acknowledged that "going in fall is
harder than going in spring," because fewer
opportunities exist to speak directly to the voters,
