Fed cuts could hurt
city, county budgets


President Carter's announcement
Friday of possible cuts in federal
revenue sharing has, added one more
uncertainty to local budget-balancing.
Both the Ann Arbor and Washtenaw
County governments receive revenue
sharing money directly from the
federal government. The money .goes
into the already hard-pressed general
fund accounts of both governments.
Ann Arbor's $25 million-plus general
fund last year won $1.6 million in
revenue sharing from the federal
government. Even before the
president's speech Friday proposing
revenue sharing cuts, the city's ad-
ministration predicted the amount
would decrease.
And the city's general fund account,
which supports police and fire protec-
tion, city courts, and City - Hall ad-
ministration, is already expected to be
hard-hit by inflation coupled with
shrinking sources of state funding and a
move to cut taxes in City Council.
Although Ann Arbor City Ad-
ministrator Terry Sprenkel said he did
not know how the city might be affected
by cuts in revenue sharing, "obviously
it can only have a negative impact."
Washtenaw County collected $1.7
million in federal revenue sharing
dollars last year which it added to its
$24 million general fund, according to
Michael Stimpson, senior budget

analyst for the county.
The county government's general
fund supports the Sheriff's Depar-
tmentsCircuit and District Courts,
county administration, and subsidies to
government agencies such as the coun-
ty health department, the county men-
tal health department, and the county
drain commission.
While Stimpson was unsure that the -
cuts proposed Friday would even affect
the county's revenue sharing dollars,
he said the County Board of Com-
missioners might have to raise taxes or
use prior years' surplus to substitute
for any lost federal funds.
Smaller communities also would be
affected if revenue sharing were cut.
Ann Arbor Township, which touches
the city's northeast boundaries,
receives about $13,000 per year from
the federal government out of a total
budget of $120,000.
The money, according to township
supervisor Nancy Davis, goes toward
matching county road improvement
Davis bemoaned the possible loss of
revenue sharing dollars, saying that the
public hearing at which citizens decide
how the federal money was spent made
residents "think creatively aboutnthe
future of the area."
If the cuts do materialize, said town-
ship clerk Laurance Frederick, "Cer-
tainly itewillvbe felt, but I guess that's
what we have to do to quell inflation."

Suspect in Lowenstein
slaying held without bail
NEW YORK-The man suspected of fatally shooting former Rep.

U.S. diplomat inspects site
of Polish airliner crash
WARSAW, Poland-A U.S. diplomat who inspected the site of the
Polish airline crash which carried 87 people, including the 22 members of the

from the partially submerged wreckage are mangledbeyond recognition.
An embassy spokesman reported that about half of the bodies are still
inside the fuselage.
The Polish government is continuing its investigation of the crash, and
have permitted a member of the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board

to free the 50 American hostages in Tehran.
Judge in court-martial
worries about 'moral issues
CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C.-When the court martial of Pfc. Robert
Garwood reconvenes March 26, a battle is certain to develop over raising
what the judge referred to as "all the ambiguous moral issues" of the
Vietnam war.
During the court martial's initial two days last week, defense attorneys
were rebuffed in their attempts to have the case judged against the
background of all POW behavior.
But Col. R. E. Switzer, the judge in the case, rejected a defense request
to have access to propaganda to have statements and tape recordings made
by all American POWs.
Makers of Agent Orange sued
DETROIT-Three Vietnam War veterans from Michigan have gone
to court against seven chemical companies, including Dow Chemical Co. of
Midland, claiming they were contaminated by the defoilant Agent Orange.
The suit was filed Friday in U.S. District Court in Detroit.
Lawyers for the veterans claim the defoilant was responsible for a
variety of health problems they suffered.
A spokesman for Dow placed responsibility for use of the herbicide on
the U.S. government, stating "they specified what the product would be and
how it would be packaged."
