CHICAGO (AP) - City attorneys

The back-to-work agreement called
for amnesty for strikers, round-the-

The pact hammered out Wednesday
night with Hechinjer called for the
firefighters to return to their jobs at 11,
a.m. yesterday and round-the-clock
negotiations to resume at that hour.
Sherman Carmell, Chicago
Federation of Labor attorney, said the

Former Ann Arbor Mayor Albert
Wheeler, representing the National
Association for the' Advancement of
Colored People, asked Council to table
the plan during the public comments
portion of the meeting: He said after-
wards that he "commended" the city
for developing an energy plan, but said
"we didnI know what the City Council
was planning to do."
He said that while the resolution
made reference to clear goals of con-
servation, it did not state precisely
what action the city would take to
achieve those goals in the final portion
of the resolution.
Wheeler asked if the lack of precision
in the "action" part of the document
implied "that the staff in City Hall
would go ahead and implement the stuff
in (the energy plan)."
He said the entire energy package, if
implemented, would mean "the sub-
stantial rezoning of large parts of Ann,
Arbor" and forcing underprivileged
persons or those on fixed incomes to
spend money on insulation and other
energy measures in the home.
City Administrator Terry Sprenkel
said after last night's meeting that
Council would probably hold another
working session and public hearing on
the plan before voting on it again.
In 'other business last night, City At-
torney Bruce Laidlaw told Council that
the lawsuit brought against the city by
former City Clerk Jerome Weiss, who
claims he was fired unjustly from his
job in City Hall in May, 1978, would go
to trial March 6.
Laidlaw also told Council that the city
had settled out of court with Sciraetta
Construction Co. of Detroit for $45,000.
The city cancelled its contract with
Scaraetta to improve one of the city's
parks in fall 1977 because of the shoddy
workmanship and lack of adherence to
affirmative action hiring guidelines.
