Tito won
BELGRADE, Yugoslavia (AP) -
Doctors want to amputate the lower
part of Josip Tito's left leg, but the 87-
year-old president will not permit it,
Yugoslav sources reported yesterday.
An operation last weekend to correct a
circulation problem in the leg was un-
successful.
-Thesreports, unconfirmed by of-
ficials, came after days of speculation
about an amputation as a means of
avoiding the dangers of continued
blocked circulation.
:OFFICIALS, including Tito's team of
eight doctors, said only that Tito's leg
was "in gradual deterioration" after
the weekend surgery.
=The panel has provided brief daily
bulletins since then, none hinting at
what the next move might be. The

operation itself followed an unsuc-
cessful week-long effort to treat the
condition with medicine alone.
Tito's illiness added to tension in
Yugoslavia over the Soviet military in-
tervention in Afghanistan strongly op-
posed by the Tito government.
ONE YUGOSLAV official com-
plained privately that Western
speculation about a. similar move
against Yugoslavia after Tito dies"only
irritates the Russians in a situation
when they are already irritated. ""
Students in the Croatian capital of
Zagreb staged a demonstration earlier
in the week to protest the Soviet move
into Afghanistan.
Party and government leaders have
been directing a campaign calling for
increased vigilance in the wake of the

intrusion into Afghanistan. Tito broke
from the Kremlin in 1949 and many
Yugoslavs fear a Soviet attempt to
bring their country back in once Tito
dies.
TITO'S ILLNESS has kept him from
personally directing the Yugoslav
diplomatic campaign. His health is also
being discussed at local party meetings
originally intended only to deal with
party policy on Afghanistan, defense
and other matters.
The local meetings are the first of
their kind since 1968, when they were
called after the Warsaw Pact invasion
of Czechoslovakia. Participants in the
current meetings, however, say these
lack the crisis atmosphere of 1968.

City Council is considering a capital
improvements plan for Ann Arbor, in-
cluding five projects to be funded
through bond issues. in 1980. The bond
issues, totalling $5 million, would have
to be approved by voters in the April
city elections.
The plan, which has been called a
"wish list" by City Hall staffers, is
made up of two parts: a list of projects
to be funded in 1980, and a much larger
group of projects that the city would
like to build over the next six years.
THE LIST OF projects includes im-
provements to the city's park system,
the sanitary sewer and storm sewer
system, the transportation system (in-
cluding road improvements), the water
system, and the city's buildings.
BY THE TERMS of the Headlee Tax
Limitation Amendment, voters must
approve such bond issues.
The five bonding proposals which
council might put before the voters in
April would support a storm sewer to
relieve flooding in the Sister Lakes
neighborhood on the city's west side,
with $575,000 in bonds, and four major
road improvements:

" On South Industrial Highway bet-
ween Stadium Boulevard and
Eisenhower Parkway (with $300,000 in
bond revenues);
" Widening the intersection of
Packard St. and Stadium Blvd.
($120,000);
" Adding a center turn lane to State
St. between Eisenhower Parkway and
Stimson St. ($2,750,000);
" And finally, $750,000 in bonds . to
support the city's on-going street resur-
facing program for the coming year.
The five projects are only partially
funded through bond revenues and the
balance is expected to be made up with
state and federal monies.
CITY COUNCIL members, who
looked at the capital plan at a working
session Wednesday evening, said they
were unsure as to whether they would
support putting all five bonding
proposals before the voters in April.
"I just don't see how you can talk
about cutting back on taxes on the one
hand, and putting all these proposals on
the ballot on the other hand. I think
there's a contradiction there," Coun-
cilmember Edward Hood (R-Fourth
Ward) commented last night.

Hood said he would not support voting
to put bonding proposals before the
voters unless he approved of the projec-
ts himself, because voters might simply
rubber-stamp the projects.
"I THINK most voters assume that
council is screening these projects and
that we're 100 per cent behind them,"
Hood said.
Councilmember David Fisher (14
Fourth Ward) echoed Hood's objection
to placing the proposals on the ballot
just on the principle of "letting the
voters decide."
Fisher said he had learned a lesson
when voters approved the purchase of a
city solid waste shredder for the city, on
the basis of claims that a shredder
would increase the life of the city's lan-
dfill. The shredder, he claimed, has-
since proven to be financially un-,
feasible, and he said voters approve*
the shredder even without the infor-
mation to judge its worth.
The list includes projects to be built
over the next six years at a total expen-I
se of $93 million - many of which will.
never be built, according to council:
members. The city's share of the
project's cost would total some $54.5:
million.

Soviet Union s70 sdefense spending
30 per cent higher than United States

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Central
Intelligence Agency said yesterday that
the Soviet Union spent almost 30 per
cent more on defense than the United
States in the decade that ended last
month.
The CIA estimated Soviet defense
spending increased during the decade
at an average annual rate of three per
cent. Meanwhile, U.S. spending, ad-
justed for inflation, fell slightly bet-
ween 1970-1976 and rose slightly during
the rest of the decade.

THE CONCLUSIONS were published
in a CIA report comparing the defense
spending patterns of the two super-
powers.
The U.S. foreign intelligence agency,
saying the Russian spending pattern
showed "continuous growth throughout
the decade," predicted a similar
growth rate for the 1980s.
After years of being outspent by the
Americans, the CIA said, the Soviet
Union caught up with U.S. defense
spending in 1971 and then exceeded the

Americanoutlays each year by an ever-
increasing margin. In 1979, according
to the CIA, the Soviets spent the
equivalent of about $165 billion, com-
pared to $108 for the United States.
BY 1979, ACCORDING to the reportw
the Soviets had 4.3 million people is
uniform, about twice the U.S. total.
Meanwhile, U.S. naval strength in the
Indian Ocean region has increased
temporarily to 25 ships, including three
aircraft carriers, the Pentagon said
yesterday.

Barham said. "The limitations are
hard to describe. They probably have to
do with the limited services a part-time
staff can provide. I'm satisfied with the
breadth of our coverage, but the depth
would be better if we had more
professional staff."
One University student, LSA fresh-
woman Victoria Lim, attended the open

out what CULS is," Lim said. "The first
time I heard about it was in September
at an orientation for Asian-

Cynthia Wiggins, a sophomore in the
School of Nursing, said she has used
some CULS services.
"The only service I've really used is
the English writing skills workshop,''
she said. "I'm more likely to go to a
nursing program counselor. They know,
more about the requirements, an
that's the reason."
