HUMANE SOCIETY REFUSES TO GIVE A WAY DOG
Frats won't receive house pets

(Continued from Page 1)
nities have trouble providing (the pet)
with long-term lifetime care."
Allevato also said she thought the
Humane Society would be "committing
organizational suicide" if it allowed
fraternities to adopt animals so soon af-
ter the cat-killing incident.
CHRIS DEEM, vice-president of the
Fraternity Coordinating Council, said
that many fraternity members were
disappointed about the cat-killing in-
cident - and about the Humane

Society's reaction. He said that many,
fraternities do very well with their pets,
and the quality of care depends on the
individual fraternity.
Nehman claimed that if his fraternity
were to appeal to the state level of the
Humane Society, they would receive a
more sympathetic response. But he
said he doesn't think it would be ap-
propriate to go over the local society's
head. Still, Nehman said he feels that

the rejection was a "snap decision,"
and that Delta Chi will get a dog when
their case is reviewed.
Allevato said that even without the
cat-killing episode, the decision on
Delta Chi's request would have been
very close. The society might be willing
to let the fraternity have a neutered
animal, she said, as this would reduce
the chance of it running away.
At a recent University Regents.

meeting, Allevato reportedly told the
Regents about the cat-killing incident.
She accused the University of trying to
be a "protective parent" of the five@
students who pleaded no contest to the
charges of animal cruelty.
The five former members of Alpha
Delta Phi made their plea on Jan. 17.
They were expelled from the fraternity
because of their involvement in the in-
cident. The five students will be senten-
ced on Feb. 22.

Special to the Daily
LANSING-Manfred Schmidt, a
resident of Colonial Square Cooperative
on Ann Arbor's south side, found out
yesterday that not only can you beat
City Hall, but you can also beat the
state bureaucracy.
Schmidt was one of four city residen-
ts who spoke before the state's Tran-
portation Commission yesterday and
convinced the panel to vote against
construction of a $5 million cloverleaf
interchange where Platt Rd. now
crosses over I-94, just south of the city
limits.
MONDAY NIGHT Schmidt and
others proved you can beat City Hall
when Ann Arbor City Council voted nine
to two against using city funds for the
interchange. Residents of the south
side, including Schmidt, had lobbied
council a week earlier to persuade
council members to vote against the in-
tersection.
Council's negative vote, as well as
claims such as Schmdit's that the
project would ruin the quiet neigh-
borhood near Platt Rd., helped influen-

ce the six-member Transportation
Commission to vote down the project,
five to one.
In addition, Commission Chairman
Hannes Meyers said before the vote
yesterday that the interchange would
not aid the long-distance traveler, a
factor that recently caused the com-
mission to approve a controversial ex-
tension of M-275 in Oakland County.
THE LONE DISSENTER yester-
day, Commission Member Carl
Pellonpaa, said after the vote that he
supported the proposed interchange
because of the number of local gover-
nments in favor of the project-Ann
Arbor was the only local government to
vote against it-and the number of
years-16-that the project had been
planned.'
Robert Lillie, supervisor of Pittsfield
Township, Ann Arbor's immediate
neighbor to the south, earlier had told
commission members that developers
had bought land in the township near
the site of the proposed intersection,
and development would take place
even without the project.
Three other representatives of transit

---"

planning and business groups spoke in
favor of the project, but the residents
and environmentalists carried the day.
SCHMIDT AND three other Ann Ar-
borites contended that increased traffic
from an intersection would ruin the
south side.
"Nobody says what will happen to the
neighborhood," Schmidt argued . 0
The residehts also said the project
would harm 16 acres of wetlands lying
just south of I-94.
COMMISSION MEMBER AND Ann
Arbor resident Weston Vivian said
development south of I-94 would not be
seriously hampered by the lack of an in-
terchange with the highway, and that
an intersection could be a hazard to
through-traffic on I-94, due to the
closeness of the U.S. 23-I-94 intersec-
tion.
Vivian said he was "surprised" by
the, strength of opposition to the
proposed interchange.
"We're very happy with the out-
come," Connie Plice, who had lobbied
agaisnt the project, said after the vote.
She and Schmidt said they had not ex-
pected such a sympathetic hearing
from the commission.

statement that "the last few weeks

Although Carter warned Iran anew
that "if the American hostages are
harmed, a severe price will be paid,"
he said he will try "to persuade the
Iranian leaders that the reat danger to
their nation lies to the north from Soviet
troops in Afghanistan, and that the un-
warranted Iranian quarrel kith us
hampers their response to this greater
danger.'
Carter said, "The Soviet Union is now

attempting to consolidate a strategic
position that poses a grave threat to the
free movement of Middle East oil."
ASSERTING THAT the situation
"demands careful thought, steady ner-
ves, and resolute action," he called for
"collective efforts to meet this new
threat" by all nations "who rely on oil'
from the Middle East and are concer-
ned with global peace and stability."
In a key declaration, the president
said:
"Any attempt by any outside force to,
gain control of the Persian- Gulf region
will be regarded as an assault on the
vital interests of the United States. It'
will be repelled by use of any means
necessary, including military force."
TIHE ADMINISTRATION official
who briefed reporters on Carter's
remarks, said, "We are not headed for
an immediate confrontation" with the
Soviets and that the president's

message was "not a bugle call." He
said the president was looking toward a
long-term foreign strategy.
Carter was interrupted by applause
20 times-during his address and'one of
the longest came when Carter told
Congress he would not support sending
an Olympic team to Moscow.
Conspicuous by his absence from the
foreign diplomatic corps assembled to
hear the address was Soviet Am-
bassador Anatoly Dobrynin.
