DETROIT (AP)-A federal judge
ruled yesterday that the Census Bureau
seriously undercounted the nation's
1980 population, particularly
minorities, and gave the bureau 30 days
to propose a plan for increasing its
figures by at least 5 million people.
U.S. District Judge Horace Gilmore,
ruling in a case brought by the city of
Detroit, said that the adjustment must
be made before the census.figures can
be used to reapportion Congress of
distribute federal funds.
THE BUREAU HAS estimated as
much as $500 billion in government aid
will be apportioned nationwide based
on the 1980 headcount. Detroit said it
lost $52 million in federal funds during
the last decade because 67,000 people
were missed in the 1970 census.
Commerce Secretary Philip Klut-
znick, whose department is in charge of
the Census Bureau, said in a statement:
"The question of appealing the decision
would have to be discussed with the at-
torneys and any final decision regar-
ding such an action would rest with the
Detroit officials, who had sued on the
contention that the population of the
nation's sixth-largest city was under-
counted in the tally, hailed the ruling.
So did leaders of other big cities-many
of which have challenged census
"THAT'S GREAT . . . That's fan-
tastic," said Marion Barry Jr., the
major of Washington, D.C. Barry said
the census figures show the District of
Columbia with 635,000 residents-20,000
to 25,000 fewer than Barry claims.
In.New York City, where a similar
suit is pending, Mayor Edward Koch
said, "It's a terrific decision. We come"
under the same umbrella. We have the
A census official in Washington who
asked not to be quoted by name reflec-
ted that "you can get a fairly good ad-
justment at the state level and perhaps
large cities, but below that you have the
problem of not ever being sure that ad-
justment is not worse than the original
count that you took."

the FDA, urged women yesterday to stop using Rely tampons because they

The FDA, in its warning last week, also said women using other brands
have suffered from the syndrome. It recommended that women reduce the
risk of contracting the disease by using napkins during part of their men-
strual periods, or stop using tampons altogether.

Attorney General to appeal
ruling on Tisch Amendment
Attorney General Frank Kelley said yesterday he will appeal a new court
ruling on the handling of the Tisch Tax Cut Amendment, claiming the state's
right to control its own elections is at stake.
Kelley plans to file appeals simultaneously in two Michigan courts over
Ingham County Circuit Judge James 4Gidding's decision ordering that of-
ficial election posters state that the Tisch proposal would radically alter key
sections of the MichiganrConstitution.
Earlier this month, Giddings barred the Tisch proposal from the ballot,
ruling invalid petitions circulated for the bill because they did not mention
all of the constitutional provisions it would alter or abolish.

If the 67,000 combined-members of the guild and the AFTA approve the
new contract, they will end the longest strike to occur in the history of their
However, the major networks said it would still be at least six to eight
weeks before unfinished television programs could be completed after the
actors return to work.
