By MARY FARANSKI
While the Ann Arbor Board of
Education has committed itself to a
desegregation plan for city elementary
schools, board members are examining
several plans that would bypass busing
as a means of achieving their desired
racial balance.
Two alternatives to
busing-redrawing school district lines
and "clustering" schools-were
mentioned by the board members at
their meeting Wednesday night.
THE CLUSTERING concept involves
two or more closely-located schools
sharing a pool of students who would
rotate from school to school depending
on what grade they were in.-
The project has two parts: one for
improving racial balance among the
schools and one for improving
educational opportunity. The first part
was submitted by School
Superintendent Harry Howard at the
board's March 26 meeting, and the
second part was presented at
Wednesday's meeting. The latter
portion was not discussed by the board
because of the late hour of the meeting.
While the board took no final action, it
did call for a committee of four of its
members to discuss the alternatives
with a Detroit computer firm that
would help work out much of the
project, regardless of which plan the
board decides on.
ONE ELEMENT of the proposed plan
is orientation visits and bus rides for
students who would be reassigned by

the plan. There would also be cultural
integration programs at newly-
desegregated schools for both students
and teachers. Also, transportation
would be provided for those bused
students who wish to participate in
after-school activities.
Other points of the plan include:
" adapting teaching skills to provide a
better atmosphere in the schools for
children of all ethnic backgrounds;
" setting up a 20:1 student/staff
ratio;,
" strengthening the instructional
program for students by testing and a
lawful distribution of teaching
resources; and,
. periodically evaluating staff
performance and implementation
patterns to make sure the plan is
working well.-
The outline is subject to change,
pending discussion and voting by the
board, before final implementation.
Howard noted that parts of the plan
may take up to a decade to put into
effect. There has yet been no pricetag
put on any part of the plan.
Carter says
'Olympic
boycott
(Continued from Page 1)
Meanwhile, the White House announ-
ced yesterday that Carter had asked
Vice President Walter Mondale to ad-
dress the Olympic Committee's House
of Delegates tomorrow before the vote
on the boycott question.
It was not clear immediately whether
the delegates had invited Carter to the
meeting, but the brief announcement
from the office of press secretary Jody
Powell noted that "the president is the
honorary president of the USOC, and
the vice president will be speaking in
his behalf."
IN ADDITION, three Soviet dissiden-
ts now living in the United States, in-
eluding poet Alexander Ginzberg,
arrived in Colorado Springs yesterday
to appeal to the USOC to recognize the
boycott.
USOC officials said Ginzburg and the
two former Soviet athletes would be
able to present their appeal to commit-
tee Executive Director F. Don Miller,
but could not take part in the critical
debate in the House of Delegates.
tCarter previously had told American
athletes invited to the White House that
the United States would not send a team
to the Summer Games this year, but
there have been suggestions that some
athletes might seek a change in Olym-
pic rules to permit them to participate
as individuals or to compete without
taking part in Olympic ceremonies.
But Carter made clear in his speech
to the editors that no such alternative is
acceptable.
"IF LEGAL actions are necessary to
enforce the decision not to send a team
to Moscow, I will take them," the
president said.
Powell said any administration ac-
tion depends to some degree on what
the International Olympic Committee,
its U.S. component and the athletes
themselves do. But he said the
president contemplates an exercise of
his executive authority.

British apologize to Saudis
for showing execution film
LONDON-Britain said yesterday it had expressed its "profound
regret" to Saudi Arabia, an important trading partner, over a TV movie
about a Saudi princess who was executed for adultery and her lover who was
beheaded.
The screening of the dramatized grisly 1977 execution on Britain's
independent television Wednesday night apparently offended the Saudis
because of its unflattering portrait of their royal family and the Islamic
system of justice.
"This film was very offensive to the whole Saudi royal family and to our
country," a Saudi Embassy spokesperson in London said yesterday. "We
have our own laws and our own morals which we keep to ourselves. It is
difficult for anyone in England to understand the moral issues of this matter
from Saudi Arabia's point of view."
Schools reopen in Georgia town
WRIGHTSVILLE, Ga.-Schools reopened in this racially-divided com-
munity yesterday as the governor vowe to keep state troopers on hand and
the U.S.,Justice Department said the outbreak of violence came as "no
surprise."
Schools were closed Wednesday after some blacks complained that
armed white adults were appearing at the schools.
Black leaders, meanwhile, obtained a permit for a march this afternoon
and said that they would return to the streets repeatedly until their demands
for better jobs and political opportunities were met.
Lance denies fraud charges
ATLANTA-Former federal budget director Burt Lance opened the
defense of his bank fraud trial yesterday declaring that he had not issued a
falsified financial statement to the Trust Co. Bank of Atlanta. President
Carter's mother Lillian testified that Lance had more "honesty, integrity
and truthfulness" than "anyone I know."
Lance, Carter's longtime friend and former top level adviser, has been
charged with two counts of making false statements to banks, and is also
charged with ten counts of misapplying bank funds in loans to his relatives
and friends.
Lawmaker proposes tax cut
LANSING-Rep. Mark Siljander (R-Three Rivers) announced yester-
day a petition drive to put his property tax cut plan before the voters, saying
he doubts the legislature will agree on a ballot proposal of its own.
He said his proposal involves a net tax reduciton of $300 million that he
said is needed to head off the more drastic Tisch tax cut plan.
The proposal would slash property taxes from 50 per cent to 70 per cent
by eliminating the charges on the first mills levied. It would also make it
dificult for future legislatures to hike state taxes by requiring a two-thirds
vote rather than the current simple majority.

certain territories to Arabs
WASHINTON-Claiming that the Mideast eace process is in danger,
Egyptian President Anwar Sadat urged Israel yesterday to accept Arab
sovereignty in East Jerusalem and over the West Bank of the Jordan River.
Recognizing Arab rights in these territories "is the only sure way to
peace and harmonious existence," Sadat said in a speech to the National
Press Club.
Sadat also added that an autonomy plan that has eluded negotiators for
more than ten months could be worked out "in hours, not days," if Israeli
Prime Minister Menachem Begin comes to an understanding with him and
Carter.
Israel troops continue
Lebanon patrols
METULLA, Israel-Some 360 Israeli troops patrolled the mountainous
region of southern .Lebanon yesterday searching for possible Palestinian
guerrillas planning raids into Israel, a U.N. spokesperson said. Meanwhile,
Libanon requested a U.N. Security Council session to discuss the "explosive
situation" caused by the Israeli presence.
Israeli military sources defended the two-day old incursion as strictly a
defense move aimed at keeping Palestinian guerrillas from crossing the
Lebanese-Israeli border to attack Jewish settlements as they did Monday,
killing three Israelis. The five raiders were also killed.

NICHOLS ARBORETUM
The Arb is a Michigan tradition for all seasons. Be it cross-
country skiing, toboganning or, of course, the ever-famous
traying in the wintertime; or running and sunning in the
sunshine of spring and summer; or even long, romantic walks
among the crisp, autumn leaves in fall, the Arb is the setting
for rest, relaxation and just plain fun for many Michigan
students.
