Bouncers
sprayed
with gas;
couple
arrested
Ann Arbor Police arrested a man and
a woman yesterday morning after the
,woman allegedly sprayed tear gas at
three Second Chance bouncers who
were attempting to escort the couple
out of the bar.
The two patrons were questioned and
then released by police pending further
investigation, according to Police Sgt.
,Harold Tinsey.
AT ABOUT 1 A.M. yesterday, the
bouncers tried to escort the couple out
of the bar after they allegedly had
become unruly. The woman then ap-
parently reached for a canister of tear
.gas she was carrying and sprayed the
0 bouncers. The bouncers held the couple
until police arrived.
In other developments, the woman
who police said drowned in the Huron
River Tuesday was identified Wed-
nesday by her roommate as 30-year-old
Lynn Byl of 1020 Island Drive, Ann Ar-
bor.
Byl was pulled from the river
Tuesday after she entered it from her
riverside home, Tinsey said. Police still
have not determined whether the death
was a suicide or an accident. Homicide
has been ruled out, Tinsey said.

Proposed
Amtrak
rate hike
rejected
WASHINGTON (UPI)-Transpor-
tation Secretary Drew Lewis yesterday
assured a congressional panel he will
not follow budget office recommen-
dations to substantially increase Am-
trak fares.
"It is unfair to indicate this budget
has been jammed down our throats by
OMB (the Office of Management and,
Budget)," Lewis told the House tran-
sportation subcommittee.
"WE DON'T PLAN to follow OMB's
program on how to run Amtrak," he
said, emphasizing operational recoin-
*mendations will continue to come from
experts in Amtrak and the Federal
Railroad Administration.
However, Lewis warned that the
passenger rail corporation will face
substantial cutbacks of routes deemed
inefficient.
Lewis discussed Amtrak's immediate
future during the subcommittee's
hearings on the passenger rail cor-
poration and other rail systems in the
O'Northeast.
_"1THE OMB HAS called for Amtrak
fares to cover 80 percent of its costs by
1985 and that fares on short-distance
trains be doubled. But Lewis said his
department is only considering fare in-

creases "of 13 to 20 percent."
The subcommittee chairman, Rep.
James Florio (D-N.J.) opened the
hearing with a warning that the cuts
proposed by budget director David
Stockman "would force the collapse of
commuter and intercity rail systems in
the Northeast on which millions of
people depend."
Lewis said the warning was "not
valid." He did say some routes will be
eliminated, specifically naming two
between Washington and Cincinnati
that Amtrak itself already has recom-
mended be dropped.
"It would be cheaper if we bought all
the passengers airline tickets, gave
*them the tickets, and eliminated the
train," he said of those routes.
Amtrak's proposed budget also would
cut service to three times weekly bet-
ween Chicago and San Antonio.
In an' interview before the hearings,
Florio called the Stockman-proposed
cuts "naive," and said it would spell the
death of Amtrak except for corridor
service between Boston and
Washington, Los Angeles and San
Diego, and perhaps one or two routes in
the Chicago area.
At the hearing, Lewis strongly
backed the budget office's proposed
$310 million cutback in the Washington-
Boston corridor rail improvement
project, to be accomplished mainly by
abandoning plans for 120-mph trains
and for electrification of the line bet-
ween New Haven, Conn., and Boston.
