Co-op: a
reply to hard
economic times

By STACY POWELL
Co-op: The word has traditionally conjured up
images of communist infiltration.
But ask any of the 400 people who attended last
Saturday's North American Students of Cooperation
(NASCO) meeting at the Michigan Union, what co-op
means to them, and they'd reply it is simply a
response to hard economic times - and that's just for
starters.
IN -A CO-OP, explains Gigi Bosch, a four-year
member of an Inter-Cooperative Council co-op,
"Members come together for their mutual benefit, to
provide basic goods and services and to market their
products. Member ownership and control has
economic and personal benefits," she said, adding

that most food which can be bought in a co-op store is
less expensive than food in a regular grocery store.
Marty Frost of Vancouver British Columbia said
that in a co-op, the people making the decisions are
the ones most affected by them. "I am active in
determining when and where I'll work, and how
much I'll get paid," he said.
According to Lori Mann of Ann Arbor, the con-
ference provided information on developing leader-
ship skills, lobbying for legislation beneficial to co-
ops and establishing new co-ops.
CO-OPS INVOLVE a great many services, said
Robert Norris of Portland, Oregon. "I think we're
going to see a lot more multi-service co-ops which of-
fer food, housing and optical services."
Larry Haller, a food-co-op member, says his group

buys from farmers, other co-ops and grocery store
distributors. Haller's co-op requires a $30 to $6Q
membership fee, which is returned after the in-
dividual has left the co-op. Haller said his co-op also
requires a hour and a half of work each month from
members. Such duties include stocking shelves and
mopping floors, he said.
One reoccuring problem for co-ops is that members
do not set goals and values by which to work, said
Phil Kreiter. Kreiter led a discussion group called
"Principles and Ideology: Thought and Action"
which addressed some problems associated with
defining co-op goals. People enter into co-ops with
different outlooks and personal goals, he said, which
make it difficult for the co-op as a unit to reestablish.

Results of
shooting
probe due
this week

By KATHLYN HOOVER
The Michigan State Police are in-
vestigating the Sunday morning
shooting death of an 18-year-old Yp-
silanti man allegedly by an off-duty Yp-
silanti policeman and expect results
either Thursday or Friday, Washtenaw
County Prosecutor William Delhey said
yesterday.
Delhey refused to release any infor-
mation on the investigation until it is
completed. He is still waiting to receive
some of the eyewitness reports, he said,
adding that most of them are in,
however.

PATROLMAN Michael Rae
allegedly shot Michael O'Neill, a 1981
Ypsilanti High School graduate, twice
in the chest about 1:30 a.m. at the inter-
section ofrMichigan Avenue and
Hamilton Street. He was pronounced
dead a short time later at St. Joseph's
Mercy Hospital in Ann Arbor.
The shooting occurred after a scuffle
between Rae and O'Neill in the middle
of the intersection, witnesses said.
According to reports, O'Neill had left
his car to speak with a friend in the car.
beside him. After Rae pulled up behind
O'Neill's car and waited for a few

minutes he pulled along beside O'Neill
and shouted to him to move his car. -
Rae reportedly got out of his car and
pushed O'Neill who then pushed him
back. Rae then allegedly pulled out his
revolver and shot O'Neill twice in the
chest.
Elwood Dethloff, former chief of the
Ypsilanti Police Department and whose
son was in O'Neill's car at the time, said
he believed Rae had been given time off
after the incident. This is standard
procedure in a shooting.

Transportation report
criticizes U.S. rails

WASHINGTON (AP) - The United
States, faced with deteriorating high-
ways and crowded skies, should
emulate Japan, Western Europe and
Canada and develop its own "bullet
train" service between major cities, a
congressional panel said yesterday.
"The construction and operation of a
high-speed passenger rail system could
play a vital role in reversing America's
economic decline," said a report by the
Joint Economic Committee.
TO STAY economically health, the
United States needs a balanced tran-
sportation system, the committee
reportsaid.
But, it said, while many of the world's
major industrial nations have
aevelopea modern rail service since
World War II, the United States has
allowed its system to deteriorate.
The report noted approvingly that the
Japanese "Bullett Train" the British
'High Speed Train" and the French
"Tres Grande Vitesse, Very Great
Speed" train' all average at least 100
miles per hour on their iter-city runs
and are highly popular.
BY CONTRAST, the report said, the
average speed of U.S. passenger trains

declined from 75 mph in the mid-1950s
to 40 mph now.
The study quoted testimony last July
by Amtrak President Alan Boyd that
the popularity of Amtrak's'Boston-New
York-Washington Northeast Corridor
service "has proven that people will
leave their cars and take the train on
~trips of generally 100-300 miles if they
are provided frequent, reliable, safe
and comfortable service."
The railroad project would not only
create a new industry, fostering
new employment and business oppor-
tunities, but would also help to
revitalize the areas served by the high-
speed trains," if the foreign experience
is a guide, it added.

Larceny and arrest
at Kroger's
A 21-year-old Ann Arbor man was
arrested yesterday after he knocked
down a 65-year-old woman in a parking
lot and apparently attempted to steal
her car, police said. The victim was
putting groceries into her car in the
Kroger parking lot at 1140 Broadway
when she was knocked down by the
suspect. He then took her car keys. She
screamed and several persons respon-
ded, holding the suspect until police
arrived. He is being held in the

Armed robbery on
E. Washington
An armed robbery on the 100 block of
E. Washington resulted in a man being
robbed of $100 early Monday morning.
The victim was walking down E.
Washington at 1:30 a.m. when the

to his back. He was ordered by the
suspect to go into the alley and lie down.
The suspect took $60 and then kicked
the victim in the ribs and fled the scene.

of power and hand tools were stolen
from a house on the 800 block of
