REIMBURSEMENT FOR JULY STORM EXPECTED
'U', city may receive federal storm funds
By ELAINE RIDEOUT
As much s $256,000 could be reim-
bursed to the city and University if
emergency fund requests made yester-
day to the federal government are ap-
The requests were made in hopes of
recovering some of the $277,000 spent
by the city and $65,000 spent by the
University in the aftermath of an elec-
trical storm last July 16. Under the
guidelines of the Federal Emergency
Management Agency, up to 75 percent
of that amount could be reimbursed by
the federal government.
THE CITY SHARE could amount to
$208,262, "provided it (the application)
gets through all the federal offices and
they all agree," said Major Walter
Hawkins, heads of the Ann Arbor Office
of Disaster Preparedness.
According to Sgt. Harold Tinsey of
the Ann Arbor Police Department, the
city should hear from the federal agen-
cy within a few months. But, Tinsey ad-
cluding Washtenaw, were declared
federal disaster areas last month after

the athletic campus, central campus,
the botanical gardens, Nichols Ar-
boretum, and the golf courses.
But the University will receive no
compensation for widespread damage
that occurred during another storm
"WE WERE THE big losers in that
one," Stevens commented. "The
University suffered more damage than
anywhere else in the area but it still
wasn't sufficient for the governor to
declare us a disaster area."
According to John Weidenbach,
Director of Business Operations, that
storm cost the University $85,000. "It's
just one of those things, Weidenbach
said. "We'll have to do without
% City expenditures on the later storm,
however, were nominal.
Mayor Louis Belcher stated the city
is contesting expenditures not approved,;
by the government including tree
replacement and police and fire expen-
ditures. He said the city will continue to
meet and negotiate with the agency.
Should there be a concurrence by the
federal agency, he added, the total
reimbursement would still have to
cohiply with the 75 percent refundable
aster areas last month. Ann Arbor could
receive more than $208, 000 in aid.
ded, the money might not come through
fast enough to bail out several city
departments that were forced to spend
operating funds on storm clean-up.
Tinsey said there is still storm debris
that has yet to be cleaned up in certain
parts of the city.

said, "is a semi-monopoly by two par-
ties who have a vested interest in main-
taining powet, in collusion with the
government to market candidates they
can sell to the public."
Reagan's representative refuted that
position, adding that the country needs
a president who feels the best days are
ahead and not'behind.
He also said Reagan was the one who
could get the country back on its feet,
pointing to his record as governor in
California as evidence.
CARTER'S "representative denied
that Reagan would be a capable
president, pointing out Reagan's heavy
dependence on gubernatorial advisors
while holding office in California.
Resident advisor Marsha Moody, who
co-sponsored the debate, expressed
disappointment that the conflict was
not keener. "Most of the people here
were really informed," she said.
"It will help me make a decision in
November," Moody continued.

who was in the audience, said the forum

University President Harold Shapiro
may travel to China next spring to work
on establishing .a student and faculty
exchange program with universities
there; faculty members say.
I ;rofessor Vern Terpstra, a member
the University's China Coordinating
Committee, the faculty group
organizing the trip, emphasized,
however, that plans are tentative and
that there is "no firm commitment"
"Right now, the committee is
working on the feasibility of (the trip),"
according to Cara Casurella, a Univer-
sity staff member who attended the
committee's first and only meeting so
far this year.
Terpstra said the proposed trip would
serve to increase research oppor-
tunities in both countries, expand
cultural and intellectual exchange, and
"strengthen ties" between the U.S. and

HERE'S ONE ENGINEERING OPPORTUNITY
YOU WON'T GET IN PRIVATE INDUSTRY.
If you're thinking about a
technical position after gradua-
tion, think about this.
How many companies can
offer you a nuclear submarine
to operate? The answer is none.
Equipment like this is available
only in one place-the Navy.
The Navy operates over half
the nuclear reactors in America.
So our training is the broadest
and most comprehensive. We
start by giving you a year of
you'll earn a top salary. Over
$24,000 a year after four years.
And you'll be responsible for some
of the most advanced equipment
developed by man.
The Navy also has other
opportunities in surface ships
and aviation assignments. If you
are majoring in engineering, math
or the physical sciences, contact
Syour placement office to find out
when a Navy representative will be
on campus. Or contact your Navy
