rejection of a hefty tax increase, warned
yesterday of massive program cuts to

marched down main street peeking tax
dollars for their padlocked schools.

Schools," staged a "March for the

PIR GIM pettons
fo/r Clean, Ai'r Act
Speaking at a Public Interest
Research Group - sponsored press con-
ference yesterday in Michigan State
Representative Perry Bullard (D.-Ann
Arbor), called for the U.S. Congress to
save the Clean Air Act.
"I deeply regret the auto industry's
attempt to gut the Clean Air Act. I hope
that Congress will renew it in essen-
tially its present form" Bullard said at
PIRGIM'S kick off for its Save the Clean
Air Act petition drive.
PIRGIM'S petition drive, which
starts today in the fishbowl and will
continue for the rest of the week, is an
attempt to gain enough signatures to
stop passage of the 'raxler-Hillis bill,
said Rick Levick, a PIRGIM represem
The Traxler-Hillis bill, according to
Jim McCargar, of the Ann Arbor
Ecology Center, would relax em-
mission standards for environmental
pollutants from motor vehicles to a
level which would jeopardize the
general public's health.
The Traxler-Hillis bill "would roll
back auto emission standards to allow
more than double the amount of vehicle
pollution permitted under the current
law," Bullard said.
"IT WOULD effectively destroy the
government's ability to 'enforce the
weaker (pollution) standards. It would
mean more acid rain and more people
sick with pollution-related illnesses,"
City Councilman Lowell Peterson
said weakening the Clean Air Act will,
have serious longterm consequences
for Ann Arbor's health and well-being.
"We live in one of the most heavily
industrialized regions of the country - fj, *.ABAf
southeast Michigan - and have a rel
stake in clean air standards for in- Music by
dustry," Peterson said.
"There is no evidence that dirty air FOOT-LOOSE
leads to greater economic productivity;
there is a wealth of evidence that it adds
to worsened public health," Peterson
A 57-year-old woman was raped
Monday at 9 a.m. in the basement laun-
dry room of her apartment building on
the 1100 block of Nielson Ct. police said
yesterday. This is the fifth rape in Ann
Arbor area since the beginning of Sep-
tember,-the second near campus.
The woman was doing laundry when
a black male in his 20s grabbed her and
raped her. The assailant apparently
gained entry through a door, according
to Ann Arbor Police Sgt. William
Canada. Canada added that the doors
of the laundry room are supposed to be
locked,abut some had defective locks.
Police do not believe the criminal in
this case is the same man responsible
for the other rapes because the suspect
in those cases is white.
