Oil firms
bike prices
3.5 cents
per gallon

From United Press International
Gulf Oil Corp, Conoco Inc. and Cities Service Co.
yesterday raised wholesale gasoline and heating oil
prices by as much as 3.5 cents a gallon in the con-
tinuing price wave that has boosted U.S. pump prices
by almost 6 cents a gallon since Jan. 1.
In the 10 days since President Reagan removed
price controls on domestic crude oil and gasoline Jan.
28, U.S. refiners have put through almost 30 fuel price
increases.
PUMP PRICES, which averaged $1.22 a gallon in
December, rose 4.6 cents a gallon in January and by
about a penny a gallon in the first six days of
February, said Dan Lundberg, editor of the indepen-
dent Lundberg Letter in Los Angeles.
"These price moves reflect a necessary and
delayed response to the increased costs that the oil
industry was unable to pass along to the consumer
during many months last year when demand declined
sharply," he said.
U.S. gasoline consumption fell 6.3 percent and

heating oil demand dropped 12.1 percent in 1980, ac-
cording to the American Petroleum Institute.
GULF, THE 4TH largest U.S. gasoline marketer,
lifted its wholesale gasoline prices by 3 cents a gallon
nationwide and home-heating oil and kerosene by
between 2 and 2.5 cents a gallon in six Southern
states.
Concoco Inc. raised its wholesale gasoline prices by
3 to 3.5 cents a gallon, depending on region, and
home-heating oil by 3 cents a gallon except on the
West Coast, where prices went up by 4 cent to a pen-
ny.
Cities Service said it boosted wholesale gasoline,
heating and diesel fuel prices by 2 cents a gallon due
to "increased production costs."
Since decontrol took effect, Mobil Corp. has lifted
its wholesale fuel prices by almost 9 cents a gallon,
Exxon Corp. by about 8 cents, Texaco Inc. by roughly
7.5 cents, Standard Oil Co. of California's by 6 cents,
and most other large refiners by between 2 and 4 cen-
ts.

BRINK E RHOFF CRITICIZES POR TIONS OF AUDIT R EPOR T:

State,
(Continued from Page 1)
increased efficiency) is on our list of
priorities."
However, limited staff and other
resources have forced the University to
concentrate only on those with the
quickest rate of return, he said. Curren-
tly, most resources are being devoted to
improved administration of financial
aid.
THE POLICIES of the various
schools for providing financial aid have
unjustified and unnecessary incon-
sistencies, according to the audit
report. Monthly budgets for single, fir-
st-year students ranged from $144.25 to
$179.44 for rent, from $90 to $130.59 for
food, and from $25.56 to $50 for
recreation and entertainment.
The medical school's budget for a
third-year student includes $300 for
clothing for interviews and $960 for
transportation, allowances not included
in the budgets of other schools.
"The matter for concern is not to
have the packages the same (in every
school), but to formulate them within

U' dispute use of

the same framework," Brinkerhoff
said. The selection of the hospital in
which a medical school graduate will be
a resident is an important part of the
total education, he said.
THE UNIVERSITY agrees with the
auditor general that a financial aid
committee should be established to
formulate broad financial aid policies
and to approve justified variations by
individual schools.
Major problems stem from inef-
ficient use of computers, the report
states.
For example, when a student
receiving financial aid withdraws
during the semester,athe Office of
Financial Aid sends a form letter in-
forming the student that he or she must
carry a full load to receive the aid. But
the letter does not say how much the
student owes or request repayment.
The audit report states: "Our limited
sample of student financial aid awards
disclosed a student who was paid $1,236
before withdrawing from the Univer-
sity. The student's file in the Office of

Financial Aid showed that the office
sent only one form letter to the student
in its attempt to collect the funds. The
student never repaid the funds."
EXPANDED USE of computers will
alleviate problems like this,
Brinkerhoff said. It will also help insure
against making awards in excess of
students' budgeted needs by providing
a complete record of award
authorizations from other sources.
The report also criticizes the Univer-
sity for some of its spending habits. For
instance, the auditor general recom-
mended several changes in travel
reimbursement policies.
In a random sample of 225 travel ex-
pense vouchers, daily lodging expenses
ranged up to $121.90 and meals for a
single employee cost as much as $40.
lcoholic beverage costs constituted as
much as 41 percent of meal costs. The
auditor general recommended that the:
University establish limits for reim-
bursements, and enforce its policy
prohibiting charges of alcoholic
beverages against University accounts.

funds
"THE FUNDAMENTAL feeling of
the state is that their rules should apply
to everyone," Brinkerhoff said. "But
we're a different animal altogether.
And they object to our providing funds
for liquor in an appropriate business
setting. I think it should be allowable.
There were some inappropriate uses of
funds, but for the most part uses have
been acceptable.."
On other questions of ineffcient uses
of funds, Brinkerhoff said the Univer-
sity agrees with the auditor general.
For instance, the report states that the
University should work through the
courts for relief from impractical or
impossible donor specifications on the
use of endowment earnings.
"We do this whenever it is ap-
propriate. A good example is the Sim-
pson Memorial Institute. Funds were
provided by the donor for research of a
given disease," Brinkerhoff said. "By
the time the building was completed,
the donor had died, and the disease had
been cured. The courts usually grant
permission to change the use in cases
like that."

IN BRIEF
Compiled from Associated Press and
United Press International reports
Factions clash in Tehran
BEIRUT, Lebanon-Thousands of Iranian leftists clashed with Islamic
fundamentalists while conducting an illegal anti-government demonstration
yesterday.
Iranian sources reached by telephone said 7,000 to 10,000 Marxists took to
the streets to protest the U.S.-Iranian agreement that released the 52
American hostages and to demonstrate against rising unemployment in
Iran. Thirty to 40 people were injured in the Tehran street battle with guns
and knives yesterday.
The clash came at a time of increasing political tension in Iran between
secular-moderate forces that tend to cluster around President Bani-Sadr,
and clergy-led Moslem fundamentalists who control the Iranian Parliament.
Revolutionary leader Ayatollah Ruholla Khomeini has pleaded with Iranian
politicians to stop "biting one another like scorpions."
The demonstration was termed by an official radio station an attempt to
"divert the thoughts of the Moslem people of Iran from the issue of war and
to render so assistance in this way to their American masters and the
enemy's fifth column."
Jordanian envoy abducted
BEIRUT, Lebanon-Gunmen firing bursts from automatic weapons kid-
napped the Jordanian charge d'affairs and his maid yesterday and killed
two other people in a raid on his luxury apartment. Jordanian sources in
Amman linked the attack to Syria.
Two groups saying they support Syria claimed responsibility for the kid-
napping, while a third revolutionary organization was reported threatening
to execute the envoy if Jordan did not extradite three Syrian pilots who
defected to Jordan.
In Amman, Jordanian sources said the attack was connected to Syria's
feud with Jordan over the Persian Gulf war and Syrian charges that Jordan
was harboring members of the Moslem Brotherhood that has used terror
tactics against the Damascus regime of President Hafez Assad.
Syria has sided with Iran in the Persian Gulf war and Jordan has been
Iraq's most open supporter in the conflict.
A letter left in the bullet-riddled apartment accused Jordan of being allied
with "imperialism and Zionism," and of telling lies about Syria. No dead line
was set for the return of the three pilots that defected to Jordan.
Poles sign strike agreement
WARSAW, Poland-Strike leaders and government officials signed an
agreement in Bielsko-Biala yesterday to end a 10-day strike by 60,000
workers. Union leaders hailed the pact as a "full victory" but said more
trouble looms ahead.
The agreement, worked out through the mediation of the Roman Catholic
Church, called for the ouster of the provincial governor and his two deputies.
They resigned hours later.
The Polish workers had accused Governor Jozef Labudek and his deputies
of corruption. Bishop Bronislaw Dabrowski and other church leaders were
credited with having played a major role in the settlement, the first time the
church has been involved in strike bargaining.
In other agreements, strikers who shut down more than 120 major fac-
tories near the border of Czechoslavakia were granted full pay for the period
of the strike.
The Soviet news agency Tass charged that "counter-revolutionary forces
have launched a frontal attack on the Communist Party and people's
power."~
Reports of Soviet troops on the Polish border have raised fears that the
Soviet Union may intervene to restore order.
Germans protest U.S.
policy in El Salvador
BONN, West Germany-Disputes over U.S. policy in El Salvador have
provoked conflicts on West German streets and in its Parliament similar to
the Vietnam War protests a decade ago.
Some 15,000 demonstrators shouting "Yankee go home" smashed windows
and attacked American-owned cars Jan. 31 in Frankfort, a city with a large
radical student population and 76,000 U.S. troops stationed nearby.
The United States has granted $5 million in military aid to the Salvadoran
junta to fight leftist guerillas trying to overthrow the regime. Other demon-
strations occured in Mexico, Costa Rica and Nicaragua last month.
Karsten Voight, a Social Democratic member of parliament, addressed
the Frankfort demonstrators last week and accused the military junta in El
Salvador of crimes against its citizens. He called on President Reagan to
negotiate with the leftist opposition.
Bay Area drivers attacked
SAN FRANCISCO-Two more Bay Area transit drivers were attacked
yesterday, one day after a bus driver was shot to death. San Francisco's
mayor ordered armed undercover policemen posted on buses as angry
drivers threatened to shut down public transit unless they got more protec-
tion.
Mayor Dianne Feinstein also offered a $5,000 reward for information about
the fatal shooting of a San Francisco Municipal Railway bus driver on Thur-
sday. The Transport Workers Union added $2,500 to the city's offering.
Three shooting incidents in less than a month have left two drivers dead in
the area, and several others have been assaulted.

"The drivers are upset, they are scared, and with good cause," Richard
Sklar, general manager of the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission,
said yesterday, one day after Winfred McGee, 38, a Municipal driver, was
gunned down and left lying in a pool of blood on his empty bus.
Police could not suggest a motive but said it didn't appear to be robbery.

seek end
to annual
hash bash
(Continued from Page 1)
"YOU CAN'T treat one segment of
the population differently from
another," Daane said.
"We will enforce the law (at this
year's Hash Bash) as we always have,"
Corbett said. "We are concerned with
the safety of everyone," even the par-
ticipants, he said.
Stevens feels students can best voice
their objections to the disturbance by
staying away from the event as much
as possible. He suggested students ab-
oid even stopping to see what is going
on.
"WE HAVE TO show (the participan-
ts) that they are not welcome
anymore," said Richard Kennedy,
vice-president for state relations and
secretary for the University.
He noted the hash bash is "no longer
a student statement. It has become an
excuse to do damage" to University
and student propery, he said, and the
students are saying "clear it up."
Another factor entering the picture is
the cost to the University and Ann Ar-
bor, according to Corbett. He said the
Hash Bash costs the University $11,000
each April 1st in overtime payments to
extra police officers assigned to main-
tain order and enforce the law. that
figure includes the cost for maintenan-
ce to clean up after the gathering,
which often takes several days, he ad-
ded.
"DO YOU THINK it is a worthwhile
expenditure of money?" Corbett asked.
"The answer we are getting is no."
The University is paying for the
protection of its property and its
students and staff from outsiders, ac-
cording to Stevens. He said the event is
becoming more of a hindrance - in-
stead of a protest - to students.
Stevens said the gathering forces
students who do not want to partake in
the activity to stay away from the Diag
as much as possible and use less con-
venient doors to buildings, such as the
UGLI and Grad library. Once inside, it
is difficult to accomplish anything
because of the noise, he.added.
Students accomplished their original
goal,. Stevens said, but the outsiders
