TA union members
to withhold fall tuition
By JAY McCORMACK
Graduate Employees Organization
members have decided to extend a plan
to withhold September tuition fees to
the entire Fall term.
In a meeting held October 2, after a
demonstration in which they urged
graduate student employees of the
University to withhold tuition payments
for last month, GEO members voted
unanimously to ask their fellow teaching
and research assistants to refuse to pay
academic fees for the rest of the term.
DAVE KADLECEK, president of
GEO, said the group is forming an
escrow account in which td store the
tuition money until their demands are
GEO wants the Regents to drop their
appeal of a Michigan Employment
Relations Commission administrative
judge's ruling that graduate teaching
assistants be recognized as University
employees. Until MERC rules on the
appeal, the University can ,refuse to
negotiate for a contract with GEO.
Kadlecek admitted the withholding of
tuition "won't be a significant (finan-
cial) pressure tactic," since the money
paid by the graduate assistants con-
stitutes only a small part of the Univer-
Financial hold credits would be
placed on the account of any graduate
assistant who withholds tuition, and,
therefore, they would not be allowed to
register for Winter term classes. This
would, in effect, prevent ;them from
teaching classes and assisting in
research, since graduate students must
register in order to work.
"We would hope to have more than
500 (withholders of tuition)," Kadlecek
said, "but unless it was pretty clear
that we would get that many, we would
have to consider some other courses of

BROOKLYN RESIDENTS LOOK at abandoned buildings which have been
decorated with window decals of shutters, shades and flowerpots. New York
City is spending $50,000 to give vacant buildings an "occupied look."

NEW YORK (AP)-The city is spen-
ding $50,000 to stick vinyl decals shaped
like shutters, shades and flowerpots on
the doors and windows of abandoned
buildings in a new program aimed at
giving vacant eyesores "the occupied
The decals, which cost about $6 each,
are being placed on the galvanized
sheet metal that the city nails over the
doors and windows of abandoned
buildings to try to keep out youths and
junkies. About 100 vacant buildings will
be included in the $50,000 pilot program.
YESTERDAY, the city's Department_
of Housing Preservation and Develop-
ment led reporters to two buildings in
the Greenpoint section'of Brooklyn that,
were the first to get the treatment. The
department says the goal of the
program is to create "the occupied
"It looks much better than it did, but I
feel they could spend the rhoney to
renovate the houses," said Jean
Yankelwicz, who lives across the street
from one of the two buildings.
"It looks great compared to what was
facing us before," she added. "If it
stays like this it will be fine but I feel it
will be one big mess in a couple of
weeks. The kids will get to it."
ANOTHER Greenpoint resident,
Rose Pisciotto, said the fancied-up
facades "look like somebody is living
there. They've got curtains, shades and
flower pots. It looks gorgeous."
Pisciotto, who lives in the building
between the two properties, said the
colorful designs pasted up last week
"look beautiful," but added, "Why are
they closing these buildings up? Isn't
anyone going to move in?"
According to Pisciotto, the houses
have been empty since about 1970 when
a nearby school was torn down.
"If you're driving by or walking on
the other side of the street, it looks like
a normal building," said Roz Post, a
spokeswoman for Anthony Gliedman,
the preservation commissioner.
Stickets are alternated, with a shade
here, a flower pot there. On doorways,
the window-size decals are being stuck
one on top of another to create .the
illusion of a Dutch door.
Post cautioned that the program
would be restricted to "basically good
blocks that only have a few eyesores."
