unequalled beauty that is unmistakably Cuban.

Judge sets
back state
affirmative
action efforts
LANSING (UPI)-The state's
affirmative action efforts have been
dealt a setback by an Ingham County
judge's ruling in a reverse
discrimination case involving prison
guards.
Circuit Judge Robert Bell ruled
Friday state Civil Service Commission
procedures giving special
consideration to minorities and women
violate the Michigan Constitution.
CIVIL SERVICE officials said they
would immediately appeal the ruling,
claiming it contradicts an earlier
federal court decision in a case
involving State Police recruiting.
Bell's ruling came in a lawsuit filed
by five male prison guards and officers
at the Ionia Reformatory and the
nearby Michigan Training Unit.
The guards and their union claimed
three black workers and two women
were unfairly appointed to jobs the men
had sought.
BELL SAID the state constitution
only allows "merit effficiency and
fitness" to be used in making decisions
on hiring and promotion and explicitly'
prohibits the use of "religious, racial or
partisan considerations."
Specifically at issue was the state's
policy of "expanded certification" and
special testing to encourage the hiring
and promotion of minorities and
women.
Expanded certification allows
women and minorities who qualify on
civil service exams to be appointed
over higher scoring candidates in order
to achieve affirmative action goals.
BELL SAID the policy "gives special
consideration to some candidates solely
on the basis of their race or sex."
The ruling rendered "invalid and
void" the appointments of James
Robbins as security captain and
Charles Nichols and James
MacMurray as line sergeants.
A Corrections Department official
said a temporary injunction issued by
Bell last summer already has had a
"terrific impact" causing minority
representation among department
'employees to drop by one percentage
point.

Iy PUERTO RICO to campaign for the presidential primary, Senator Edward Kennedy stops stumping for a moment
to enjoy a joke made by former Puerto Rico Governor Luis Munoz Marin.
Democrats jockey for position
as Maine caucuses, draw near

AUGUSTA, Maine (UPI) - Both Sen.
Edward Kennedy and California Gov.
Edmund Brown plan to greet voters at
some of Maine's 500 caucuses today
making a last-minute bid for support in
the first New England presidential test.
Kennedy aides said the senator would
make personal appearances in Bid-
deford, Portland and Sanford as voters
entered caucuses. Brown campaign of-
ficials said their candidate would do the
same in Portland and Lewiston.
CARTER PLANNED to wait out the
vote in privacy at Camp David, Md. He
has said he probably will not campaign
while the Iran crisis continues, but Vice
President Walter Mondale and
Rosalynn Carter have appeared on his

behalf.
The caucuses will elect 2,247
delegates to the state Democratic con-
vention in April, which in turn will
select the 22 Maine delegates to the
Democratic National Convention in
August.
Only three per cent of the 225,000
enrolled Democrats, cast votes in the
1976 caucuses, but the media attention
this year and predicted fair weather
are expected to draw perhaps triple
that number.
It is the first time Maine's
Democratic caucuses are being held on
a single day. Democrats formerly
spread caucuses over several weeks, as
the Republicans still do.

RIGHT AFTER his 2-1 loss to Carter
in' Iowa last month, Kennedy said he
needed to win Maine and New Ham-
pshire. His national- campaign
manager, Stephen Smith, now s
Kennedy needs only to "do well"
New England.
But the co-chairman of Carter's
Maine camp, Secretary of State Rodne:
Quinn, predicts Kennedy "will be
destroyed if he can't win here, in his
own backyard. A loss in Maine will put
Kennedy out of business."
Kennedy has the support of Gov.
Joseph Brennan, the only governor to
endorse him so far, but Carter has the
backing of most influential Democra
state leaders.

FEB. 12 MEETING CANCELLED:

Tax cut backers undaunted

stn its 101st -eason

(Continued from Page 1)
THE JOINT meeting, scheduled for
Feb. 12, was cancelled Thursday, ap-
parently because of the school board's
decision.
Besides calling for a decrease in tax
revenues for the county and the school
board, the proposal, which Council ap-
proved 10-1, included a promise that the
city's tax revenue share would also
decrease. t
"I THINK the best we can do (now) is
set a good example," said Hood, who,
along with David Fisher (R-Fourth
Ward) originally called for the joint
meeting:
Hood said he would persist in pushing

for a reduction totalling about nine per
cent of the city's share of the total
property tax levy.
Almost half of the city's share is
already slated for the city's pension
fund, refuse service, and the Ann Arbor
Transportation Authority.
HOOD SAID he did not know how
much cutting he would back in the most
vulnerable area, the city's general
fund, because the city did not have ac-
curate estimates of tax receipts this
year. Hood said estimates ranged from
15 to 18 per cent.
Councilman James Cmejrek (R-Fifth
Ward) pointed out yesterday that a tax
revenue cut in City Hall will have
limited impact on residents' tax bills,

since 59 per cent of Ann Arbor's proper
ty tax revenues go to support the city'
schools. 0
Ten per cent of taxes go to the county,
four per cent to Washtenaw Community
College, and 27 per cent to the city's
government.
"YOU'RE REALLY talking about
trying to kill an elephant with a B-B gun
when you talk about cutting city
property taxes," Cmejrek said.
Cmejrek added that real tax relief
could only come from two sources: the
school board or the state government,
which could change assessment law*
limit assessment increases.
Councilwoman Leslie Morriss(D-
Second Ward) charged yesterday that
the tax revenue decrease proposition
for City Hall is a campaign ploy on the
part of David Fisher, who is up for re-
election in April.
Morris said the Fisher-Hood tax cut-
ting resolution, which calls for a
meeting March 3 between City Hall
bureaucrats and City Council to c@
sider a tax cut, "makes David Fisher
look good, but the city budget isn't done
until May.''
There can't be council commitment
(to a budget) until after the election,"
Morris added.
