option to purchase the 16,659 sq. ft.
piece of property came before the
Board in December, 1979, it did not
even receive a second.
Auter hearing representatives from
both sides of the issue speak last Thur
sday, the Board voted Friday to ap-
prove the option by a narrow 3-2
The motion, introduced by Regent
Thomas Roach (D-Saline), was not on
the regular agenda and two board
members, Regent Paul Brown (D-
petoskey) and Regent David Laro (R-
Flint) were not present for the vote.
"What I was most upset about was
that it (the motion to grant Stegeman
the option) was called up to a vote
Friday," said South University Neigh-
borhood Improvement Association
President Robert Snyder.

Snyder said his organization has writ=
ten a letter to University President
Harold Shapiro encouraging him to
delay proceedings with Stegeman long
enough so the matter can be brought to
a vote again. He added that his
organization would have brought a
"cheering section" if it had expected
the Regents to vote on the matter 'at
their last meeting.
Regent Deane Baker (R-Ann Arbor),
a long-time opponent of the STegeman
project, also said he objected to the way
the matter was brought to a vote. Baker
said he was out of the room making a
telephone call and was "completely
surprised" when he discovered Roach
was about to make a motion to approve
Stegeman's offer.
Controversial matters are usually
delayed until the full board is present,
said Baker. "In effect, three out of eight

Regents made the decision," he said.'
After the motion had been approved
at Friday's meeting, Baker made a
request to delay action on the motion
for 30 days until the Board could vote
again, but he did not receive a-second
for the motion.
"That was not really{ a proper
request," said Roach, referring to
Baker's motion. "If a request had been
made earlier, I'm certain I would have
agreed to it.".
Regent Sarah Power (D-Ann Arbor),
who voted in favor of the motion, also
said she would have gone along with
anyone who asked to delay the motion.
CIty Councilwoman Leslie Morris,
(D-Second Ward), who said although
she was not familiar with the way the
Regents conduct business, City Council
would never have handled the matter in
such a hasty manner.

"T o sell land with no warning - it's
amazing tome,"she said.
Several members of the faculty and
administration were surprised at the
Regents' move and said they disap-
"I think it's a lousy idea," said
Romance Language Prof. Frank Casa.
Economics Prof. William Shepherd
said, "I don't see-tow the students
could possibly benefit from this."
The Michigan Student Assembly
came out strongly against the proposal
last year. Special Projects Co-ordinator
J. P. Adams is currently investigating
the issue and may go before the City
Planning Commission.
Other students living in the South
University area said they would have
protested ° the land sale if they had
known the Regents were going to vote
on the issue.

Waldheim delays

Judge urges firefighters
to return to their jobs
' CHICAGO - A Circuit Court judge told striking firefighters yesterday
that if they agreed to end their week-long walkout, he would order Mayor
Jane Byrne to resume negotiations. The latest round of court-ordered talks
broke off yesterday morning without progress.
The city's top labor leaders, including President William Lee of the
Chicago Federation of Labor, have been attempting to persuade the mayor
to abandon her position that she would not negotiate with the union until
members returned to work.
Negotiations began weeks ago over a contract to replace a.traditional
handshake agreement that has always been used. The talks broke down over
the city's insistence on a no-strike clause.
Exported American technology
used by Soviet military
WASHINGTON -The United States made major "errors in judgement"
by selling computers which the Soviet Union used to help build Army trucks
and other military equipment, a senior Defense Department official said
William Perry, the Pentagon's research chief, told a Senate
investigation subcommittee the sales, which were known to be used for
military purposes for three years, continued despite objections to sustain a
policy of political detente with the. Russians. "Many people in the
administration believed that the political benefits were worth the risks of
technology transfer," Perry told the senators.
Economy healthier than predicted
WASHINGTON - Figures released yesterday by the Commerce
Department showed that the American economy is stronger than previously
The nation's gross national product increased at a 2.1 per cent annual
rate in the final three months of 1979, rather than the anemic 1.4 per cent rate
reported initially.
These figures indicate that a recession may not occur within the coming
months, contrary to previous forecasts. One of the president's chief
economic advisors, Lyle Gramley, said yesterday his own odds on a
recession this year have changed from 60-40 in favor to 60-40 against. A
number of other economic experts are also softening their recession
Eldest daughter of Teddy
Roosevelt dies at 96
WASHINGTON - Alice Roosevelt Longworth, the colorful and
sometimes controversial eldest daughter of Theodore Roosevelt, died
yesterday after a short illness. She was 96.
For more than half a century, she was the uncontested Grande Dame of
Washington, sparing nobody with her biting tongue. Roosevelt once called
Warren Harding "a slob," and claimed that Calvin Coolidge "looked as if he
was weaned on a pickle." "Princess Alice" was born on Long Island, New
York, the daughter of Roosevelt and his first wife, on Feb. 12, 1884.
Storms continue assault
on Arizona, California
The deluge in the West continued yesterday, as hundreds of Arizona resi-
dents were driven from their homes due to heavy rains. Damage estimates
climbed to more than $35 million in Arizona, with most damage done near
Phoenix. Twenty-seven people have been killed as a result of the heavy
The National Weather Service lifted a flash flood watch in Southern
California yesterday morning for the first time since, Sunday, but warned
that another storm was expected to blow in from the Pacific late today/or
early tomorrow. "There are several more out there," said weather
forecaster Eleanor Vostee.
Subway-udy snubbed in House
LANSING - The outlook for a controversial $950,000 engineering study of
the proposed Detroit subway system dimmed yesterday when the measure
was sent to the full House without coimittee endorsement.
Members of the House Urban Aflairs Committee voted 11-1 to report the
bill out, minus the normal recommendation for final passage. This means
that a majority of house members, 55, will have to vote in favor of taking up
the bill before discussion can begin. It is not clear when the full House will
take up the resolution, as both sides of the issue need time to develop

The commission members were
already at the airport in Geneva, Swit-
zerland, preparing to take off for
Tehran on a chartered flight yesterday
when they received word of the delay.
Waldheim earlier had received a
message from Iranian President
Abolhassan Bani-Sadr that gave formal
approval to the mission but that left
"open questions." Waldheim
spokesman Rudolf Stajduhar said. The
U.N. chief apparently contacted Bani=
Sadr or other Iranian officials for
clarification, and then called the news
briefing to announce the postponement.
