The Michigan Student Assembly
(MSA) voted last night to endorse
Democratic City Council candidate

in the Feb. 18 city primary against in-
cumbent Council Democrat Earl

wants to make sure students have a
voice in city government. She said she

she has been active in city political life.
Stephanopoulos has worked as a
Democratic intern in City Hall under
Council member Leslie Morris (D-
The Assembly also elected Carole
Bilson as its new vice-president for per-
sonnel, filling the seat vacated by Bob
DiScipio's resignation last week.
Bilson said she hopes to encourage
minorities and women to apply for the
external MSA appointments. Bilson'

minority groups on campus, and will
try to fulfill any mandate calling for
minority consideration that MSA might
In other action, the assembly rejec-
ted a proposed resolution drafted by the
Spartacus Youth League that would
support a rally with the slogan "Drive
war criminal Sullivan off campus."
William Sullivan, former U.S. am-
bassador to Iran, is a "war criminal"
and his presence should not be
tolerated, an SYL spokesman said.
Sullivan is scheduled to speak in a
Viewpoint Lecture Feb. 12.
Several members of the assembly
voiced concern that such a resolution
would be speaking out against free
speech on campus rather than simply

Retribution against inmate
informants-"snitches" in prison
slang-was one of the chief motives
in the weekend rioting in which
prisoners were gang raped, slashed,
bludgeoned, beheaded, and burned.
Rodriguez, deputy secretary of
criminal justice said many of the
convicts trapped in the weekend
rioting should not have been there in
the first place.
After revising the death count
several times, officials said 33 died
in the prison riot, some of drug
overdose. Thirty-nine had been
reported dead at one point. At least
89 were injured.

No snow could save city money
BY JOHN GOYER
City Council Monday night heard
some good news and some bad news in
second quarter financial report on the
ty's revolving funds.
The good news, Assistant City Ad-
ministrator Patrick Kenney said, is*
that if the mild winter continues with
little snow, the city could save up to
$150,000 in money budgeted for snow
But then came the bad news: smaller
cars and less travel have caused a
reduction in gasoline and licensing
taxes collected by the state, Kenney
said, and the reduction means $100,000
less in shared revenue for the city. -
AS A RESULT, Kenney said, the
city's licensing and gas tax fund, used
primarily for road repairs, will run as
planned at a $243,000 deficit this fiscal
During last May's budget sessions,
Council decided against keeping a
$295,000 balance in the fund, and thus
planned the deficit. The city also an-
ticipated a $266,000 deficit in the
revolving fund for the city's sewage
disposal system for the 1979-80 fiscal
Revolving funds are accounts kept
separate from the city's general fund
which support specific city services,
such as the sewage system, or the
parking system. These services
generate their own revenue through
user charges for such city offerings as
sewage service (recorded on individual
utility bills) or charges for parking.
