LANSING (UPI) - Robert Tisch
said yesterday he will press the
legislature to put his new, scaled-
back tax cutting scheme on the
ballot along with any reform
proposal it decides to endorse.
The proposal, hammered out over
the weekend in a meeting which in-
cluded another tax-cut crusader -
Richard Headlee - would slash
property tax assessments 33 percent
over two years, tighten limits on
state spending and require voter ap-
proval for any new levies.
TISCH SAID THE legislature
ought to give his plan an equal chan-
ce and said he believes he has had
enough support to block any
legislative proposal unless he is ac-
corded a ballot spot as well.
A spokesperson for Gov. William
Milliken said the administration is
reluctant to have more than one
reform plan on the special election
ballot planned for later this year, but
stopped short of ruling out such a
Tisch's unsuccessful Tisch Tax
Cut Amendment would have slashed
property taxes by more than 50 per-
cent and required 60 percent voter
approval for any new state levies in-
stead of the 50 percent set in the
The new proposal also answers
anothe criticism of last fall's
measure by allowing fees, college
tuition and other items to be in-
creased by a maximum of 5 percent
Tisch warned he will circulate
petitions for a much tougher plan if,
rebuffed by the legislature and may
also field candidates against those
who oppose him.
Milliken's proposal calls for a
property tax cut of 35 percent across
the board with an increase of one
percentage point in the sales tax
making up for most of the lost
Clericals to end
union vote today.
By LINDA RUECKERT
Today is the last chance for 3,500
University clerical workers to vote on
Voting, which was scheduled to take
place last Tuesday through last Friday;
was postponed to last Thursday
because of Tuesday's snowstorm.
ALL FULL- AND part-time clerical
employees - including secretaries,
typists, clerks, and receptionists - are
eligible to vote, according to Patty
Schwartzman, recording secretary of
the Organizing Committee for
Clericals. Temporary and student
workers are ineligible to vote.
The election is the result of a 13-
month organizing drive by the OCC.
In a previous election held in 1978, the
clericals voted not to unionize. The
workers have not belonged to a union
since 1976, when they voted to disband
as a local of the United Auto Workers.
Schwartzman said by unionizing, the
clericals will receive higher wager,
greater job security, protection against
race and sex discrimination, and
training programs. University clericals
earn less than their counterparts at

for the company you keMfep.
Some of the finest engineers and scientists in the
world work for The Aerospace Corporation. In fact, over
half of our technical staff holds an advanced degree.
One in four holds a Ph.D. This could be your chance to
joie these people in shaping America's space program.
If you have (or soon will have) a degree in Engineer-
ing, Science or Computer Science, we would like to
talk to you on campus.
We're doing some very interesting things.
Like contributing to the development of space
communication systems using a single laser beam for
transmission. For NASA, we have evaluated concepts
for large geostationary, synchronous space platforms.
Some of the concepts we're developing won't be
used until the 21st century.
What you'll be doing.
interest. Typically, recent college graduates are
assigned to the engineering group or our research and
experimental laboratories. Your work could involve any-
thing from gamma ray radiation to the development
of a spaceborne computer capable of performing unat-
tended for up to seven years.
You'll like our style.
We're located in Southern California only three
miles from the Pacific Ocean. We work in a quiet,
campus-like atmosphere with extensive libraries and
computation facilities for support.
Meet our representatives in person
We'll be on campus February 18.
