be operated entirely by women, and
trying to expand it would require much
time without certainty that the project
would ever be approved, Januszewski
said. In addition, she said, it would
mean dependence on AATA.
"With the women's transit system we
would be in more control of our,
process," she added.
ONE AREA LEFT to be examined is
the route the transit system would
cover. "I think ideally we want it to be
for both University and non-University
women," said Januszewski. But she
added that a shortage of either funds or
volunteers to run the operation and
drive the vehicles could severely limit
the area covered.
Rice agreed on the goals of the
project, but was pessimistic about the
possibility of city-wide coverage.
"We'd love to have it serve the whole
community-but I don't think we have
the resources at this time," she said.
Although Januszewski acknowledged
she isn't sure how long the planning and
organization will take, she said she
hopes a women's transit system can be
in operation "at least by fall."
ATLANTA (AP)-Bert Lance, the
confidant of President Carter and a
man once called the "deputy
president," goes on trial tomorrow on
bank fraud charges.
Lance, 48, and three
associates-Richard Carr, Thomas
Mitchell and Jack Mullins-will be
tried in federal court on charges of
fraud and conspiracy in their business
dealings between 1970 and 1978.
Lance, a banker who was federal
budget director for eight months in
1977, is charged in 22 of 33 counts in a
bank fraud and conspiracy indictment.
He could face a maximum sentence of
95 years plus $115,000 in fines if convic-
ted on all charges.
WHILE IN Washington, Lance had so
much influence on President Carter
that he was sometimes called the
"deputy president." Lance, a towering
6 feet 5, often played tennis with Carter.
The two had lunch together twice a
week and talked on the telephone daily.
Lance and his co-defendants have
pleaded innocent to all charges. But
controversy over Lance's banking
practices forced his resignation on
Sept. 21, 1977. When Carter announced
his friend's departure, he was near

could find anyone to replace Bert Lance

LANCE, THE SON of the president of
a small Methodist college, dropped out
of the University of Georgia when he
was 20 to support his wife, LaBelle, and
their newborn child, the first of four
sons. He officiated at high school foot-

By 1963, when he was 32, Lance and
some associates had purchased contr(
of the bank. Lance was named
president. He increased the bank's
assets sevenfold in seven years.
Lance met Carter, then a state
senator, in 1966. He rounded up
business support for Carter's unsuc-
cessful campaign for governor later
that year. Carter ran again in 1970, with
Lance's help, and won. Lance became
head of the state highway department.
WHEN CARTER left the governor'
office in 1974, prohibited from seeking b
second term, he supported Lance as a
successor. But Lance finished third in
the Democratic primary.
The alleged financing of his guber-
natorial campaign through overdrafts
and unsecured loans is prominent
among the charges against Lance and
his three co-defendants, all of whom
were involved in the campaign.

Cobo Arena doors smashed
in rush for concert tickets
DETROIT (UPI) - Six glass doors
were shattered and a seventh ripped off
its hinges early yesterday when about
2,000 young people stormed the Cobo
Arena box office.
Police said many of the youths had
been waiting outside all night, enduring
temperatures in the low teens, to buy
tickets for the February concert of'the
popular Canadian rock group "Rush."
THE CROWD pushed through the
doors after rumors circulated that
there weren't enough tickets for
everyone in line, police said.
No one was injured. One person, a 21-
year-old man, was arrested and
charged with disorderly conduct.
Fifty police officers were sent to the
riverfront arena to restore order. .
