At the tip of Manhattan, sea and air

10,000 to 12,000 commuters to work.
An unidentified woman suffered a

appeared to be the first fatality that
might be attributed to the transit strike.
NO PEACE TALKS were scheduled

MSA board rules


POLICE PROTECTION: The University must live up to its responsibility
to increase patrols of dorm and off campus student housing. Students forced
to live off campus deserve better protection against rape and assault.
PARKING TICKET REFORM: The city of Ann Arbor gives out an
average of 18,700 tickets a month. This is plain harassment of students and
.other residents. The real problem is a glaring lack of parking space. Police
enforcement should be directed to Hill and State St. areas.

The GEO conqucted a similar strike
on campus in February 1975, refusing to
teach classes or report to work until a
contract agreement was reached with
the University.

The month-long strike was finally
resolved when University officials
agreed to an "agency shop" provision
which made payment of union dues
mandatory for all graduate student

A group of candidates who had
originally filed to run in the April 8
and 9 Michigan Student Assembly
election hunderdthe name
"Independent Students" complied
yesterday with an MSA election board
ruling that ordered the coalition to
change its name. The group decided
to be listed on the ballots along with
all other independent candidates, with
no party affiliation printed.
But not all the candidates were
happy with the decision to abandon
the party name. LSA candidate
Claudia Centomini said, "I really feel
really screwed over."
CENTOMINI SAID she was upset
that she was not consplted when the
decision was made, and also said she
was not fully informed about the

number of candidates running: "I had
no idea there were 18 of us running for
LSA instead of 11."
Bob Redko, presidential candidate
for the informal party said the
election board gave him only three
hours to decide on the way he wanted
party members' names to appear on
the ballot-and, he said, there was not
enough time to call a party meeting.
He said about eight party members
caucused and decided that the trouble
and expense of altering all their
campaign literature to reflect the
change to "Independent Students
Party" would not be feasible. Now,
however, party members can use the
same literature, which asks voters to
cast their ballots for "Independent
