Flashing' alleged at UGLI

in negotiations with Chrysler
By CHARLES THOMSON
A man was taken into custody for
questioning last night in connection
with an alleged incident of indecent ex-
posure at the, Undergraduate Library
several days ago, police said.
Police said the name of the suspect
would not be released until charges are
filed. Charges for indecent exposure
are pending, they said.
ACCORDING TO Bill Smith, a
student assistant employed at the cir-
culation desk at the UGLI, several
evenings ago a female University
student was approached by a man
claiming to be a security guard.
The man allegedly told the student
that he was investigating a prowling
report at the West Engineering
Building, and that he wanted her to look
out a third-floor window facing that
building while he attempted to capture
the prowler. The'man allegedly then
went outside and disrobed in front of the
Smith said that the woman saw the
man in the library last night and asked
a friend she was with to call the police.

"He must have been 40 or so." He said

Ann Arbor police officer Larry Jerue,
who questioned the students at the
UGLI, said that incidents of indecent
exposure at the UGLI have "occurred
several times in the past."

The United Autoworkers has presen-
ted: a counter-proposal that includes
now concessions to financially
tropbled Chrysler Corp. The company
has requested the union to accept a
wale freeze, UAW President Douglas
Fraser said yesterday.
Fraser, meanwhile, began a round of
briefings on the counter-proposal with
*the, three officials whose votes will
determine whether Chrysler is granted
$400 million in new government loan
guarantees from the Chrysler Loan
Guarantee Board. Fraser scheduled
meetings with Treasury Secretary G.'
William Miller, Federal Reserve Board
Chairman Paul Volcker, and Com-
ptroller General Elmer Staats.
AFTER THE first of those briefings
with Miller, Fraser told reporters he
could give no details of the new union
concessions because talks with th4
company were in a very sensitive area
However, the union's proposal repor-
tedly amounts to less than the $673
million Chrysler has told union
bargainers it would save by a wage
freeze through September 1982.
Neither Miller nor the company had
any immediate reaction to the UAW
proposal, Fraser said, Fraser said
Miller had scheduled further meetings
with representatives of the 125 lenders
who are being asked to conyert $572
million in outstanding loans to
preferred stock to yield Chrysler an an-
nual savings of $100 million.
MEANWHILE IN Detroit, Chrysler is
extending its interest allowance plan
indefinitely to continue giving car
buyers a rebate on the cost of credit, the
automaker said yesterday.
The interest allowance, a cash rebate
paid by Chrysler to credit purchasers of
most of the company's 1981 vehicles, is
computed on the prime interest rate
and the sticker price of a particular
The plan, announced last month, was
described by Chrysler Chairman Lee
Iacocca as a way "to help make up the
difference between what the cost of
credit for a new car should be and what
