City Council will have to fill a
place on the Ann Arbor Transpor-
tation Authority Board of Director
when Chairman Cecil Ursprung's
resignation becomes effective Oct.
1.
Ursprung turned in his letter of
resignation to Mayor Louis Belcher
late last week. "I have another job
besides my board position-one that
I earn a living at, and the respon-
sibilities of my job have been in-
creasing," Ursprung explained, ad-
ding that he felt three years was long
enough to hold the non-paying
position.
"THE NORMAL term of a Board
member is five years, but I feel
that's too long. I think other people
should be given a chance to serve,"
he said.

Ursprung works full-time as direc-
tor of a marketing firm in Far-
mington. He said he still has many
ideas for AATA.
"I'd like to see it become a county-
based transit authority, sponsored
by Ypsilanti as well as Ann Arbor.
And I think it should begin dealing
with non-bus kinds of transportation
such as car and van pools."
HE ADDED that the "transition
period" the authority is currently
going through makes his resignation
more timely.
"AATA is entering a new phase,"
he said. "We've gone from being
$400,000 in deficit to having a small
surplus, and we have a new
management team as well. There is
also less emphasis on Dial-A-Ride
and more emphasis on line-haul
buses."

Residents of Hill-area and North
Campus dormitories will have an op-
portunity to hear their Rice Krispies
snap, crackle, and pop next Monday
when Stockwell and Bursley dor-
mitories begin a continental breakfast
program.
According to University Associate
Housing Director Norm Sunstad, any
student purchasing a $10 ticket at either
dormitory desk will be able to buy that
amount of cereal, baked goods, fruit in
season, orange juice, and other items
from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m. Monday through
t serveSuFriday.i
Sunstad said the breakfast service is
being offered only in Stockwell and
Bursley because students on Cenitral
Campus can already buy breakfast at
Ssnackbars in South Quad and East
Quad.
THE RESULTS of a survey taken last
year by the Housing Rate Study Com-
mittee prompted the new morning food

service, Sunstad said. In the telephone
survey, the committee found 40 per cent
of the respondents favored some sort of
breakfast program in the dorms.
"It really is a better eating habit (to
have breakfast in the morning)," said
Sunstad. "And' the Rate Committee is
there to find out about needs such as

small number of students ate breakfast,
in the dorms.
"They wanted to keep the rates downs
and there weren't enough people eating'
breakfast to make the program worth-
continuing,"he said.
TUBBS SAID the $10 fee charge toy
each student was enough to pay for thee

A $10 ticket will enable students
to raid the cafeteria for such break-
fast items as cereal, baked goods,
and fruit

i

this one so we can best serve the
students."
Housing Food Services Coordinator
Lynford Tubbs said breakfast service
to the dorms was discontinued after the
1970-71 academic year in response to a
rate committee study showing only a

program without having to raise or
allocate additional funds.
The University Housing Office has
sent a letter to Hill area and Nort
Campus residents informing them v:a
the new service. Sunstad said that the;
service will operate at least until they
end of the Fall term.

LANSING (UPI)-State drug abuse
officials-conceding there may be no
"right" drinking age-endorsed
yesterday lowering the minimum to 19,
saying legal crackdowns are not the an-
swer to alcohol abuse among young
people.
Kenneth Eaton, director of the Office
of Substance Abuse Services, said he
will not campaign for the drinking age
ballot proposal and "professionally"
opposes heavy tippling by young
people, but is convinced the 21-year-old
minimum adopted by voters two years
ago has simply not worked.
IMPROVED EDUCATION and a bet-
ter example by drinking adults are the
answers to alcohol problems of the
state's youth, he said at a Capitol news
conference.
A spokesperson for the anti-drinking
Michigan Council on Alcohol Problems,
who attended the news conference, ex-
pressed disappointment at the office's
position and challenged its facts.
"Age 21 discriminates against a
small segment of our society whose
problems are largely due to adult social
attitudes about alcohol," said Oakland
County District Judge Kenneth Hem-
pstead, chairman of the state Substan-
ce Abuse Advisory Commission.
WHILE CONCEDING the accident
MSA organizes
security meetin
A mass meeting of students concer-
ned with improving campus security is
scheduled fortonight by the recently-
organized Michigan Student Assembly
Security Task Force.
At the meeting, to be held at 7 p.m. in
the MSA chambers, students will have
the opportunity to question represen-
tatives of the Ann Arbor Police Depar-
tment, the University campus security
and the MSA. MSA officials also hope to
develop strategies at the meeting to
combat campus crime.
In other action in their regular
weekly meeting last night, MSA ap-
proved plans for an extensive campus
voter registration drive. The non-
partisan drive will be held from Sept. 28
through Oct. 6.
In last week's Assembly meeting,
MSA passed a resolution condemning
the Tisch tax cut amendment.
375 N. MAPLE 769-1300

rate among 18- to 20-year-olds has
dropped under the higher age, the office
noted accidents among 21- to 24-year-
olds increased, suggesting a jump oc-
curs at whatever point the legal age is
set.
Hempstead also insisted drinking
problems among college students are
now much more severe than before the
drinking age was raised.
"It's just a matter of going into any'
dorm room and seeing a better stocked
bar then you see in most homes," he
said.
Denying drinking privileges to young
adults makes matters worse by
fostering rebellion and a lack of com-
munication among the generations, he
said.
EATON SAID there may not be a
"right legal drinking age," Michigan
needs to "arrive at a comfortable set-
tlement" acceptable to young and old
alike.
