WASHINGTON (UPI)-The Ford
Motor Co. and the United Auto Workers
Union asked Congress yesterday to give
President Carter new powers to seek a
quick reduction of Japanese auto im-
ports.
Their appeal, to the House Ways and
Means trade subcommittee, came a
week after the U.S. International Trade
Commission refused to recommend
import relief against Japanese cars.
THE AGENCY, set up by Congress to
review trade cases, said imports are
not the main cause of the American
auto industry's troubles.
Carter's trade ambassador, Reubin
Askew, testified that administration
lawyers are divided on whether the
president already has authority to
negotiate a voluntary reduction in
Japanese imports. Askew believes im-
plementing such an agreement would
violate U.S. antitrust laws.
He said Carter is willing to see
Congress "clarify" presidential
powers, but it will be up to "the in-
coming administration" whether to
exercise them. He said Carter will not
have time.
AT THE SAME time, the ad-
ministration has said it lacks authority
to negotiate reductions in Japanese
auto shipments, and that such limits
would violate U.S. antitrust laws.

Resolutions are pending in both
houses of Congress designed to provide
Carter or President-elect Ronald
Reagan with both authority to negotiate
with Tokyo and to exempt any resulting
trade agreement from antitrust laws.
UAW president Douglas Fraser told

Wask
the subcommittee at a hearing that
quick passage of such a resolution
would "send a clear signal, most im-
portantly to the Japanese, and also to
the president and the president-elect,
that Congress feels immediate action
on the automotive import questiion is

for import relief

required."
UNLESS IMPORTS are limited,
Fraser said, there will be "permanent
damage" to the U.S. auto industry and
permanent loss of jobs for American
autoworkers-193,000 of whom curren-
tly are laid off.

"The U.S. cannot afford to continue to
be the 'sitting duck' target for Japan's
aggressive export efforts when they are
prevented from expanding sales in
other countries," Fraser said.
Ford Vice President Will Scott told
the panel, "It's time for the United

DETROIT (UPI) - Chrysler Corp. said yester-
day it has halted overtime production of its K car
compacts, which dipped this month far below the
sellout levels the company needs.
Chrysler officials said they remain convinced the
fuel-efficient, front-wheel drive cars will live up to
their high expectations.
THE COMPANY has said it must have strong
sales of the Aries K and Reliant K and maintain
sales levels of other car and truck models to regain
profitability in 1981.
Economic conditions depressing the car market
in general and some early availability problems
appeared to hurt sales.
"Early deliveries of industry cars as well as K
cars have been affected by a weakened national

economy and rising interest rates," said Chrysler
sales Vice President Jerry Pyle. "There were some
early availability problems with the Aries and
Reliant models, but that condition has been
alleviated and stocks are good at present.
"WHEN ECONOMIC conditions improve, you
will find the K cars running out front with the best of
them."
Ward's Automotive Reports, the industry's
statistical journal, said the K car daily sales rate of
485 in the first 10 days of November was 70 per cent
off the daily average Chrysler needs for a sellout.
Chrysler has targeted 490,000 K car sales in the
1981 model year, or an average of 40,833 a month.
Actual October sales were 18,272.
WARD'S, QUOTING industry sources, said early

K car production included a high proportion of op-
tion-laden two-door models with high sticker prices.
Less expensive versions, along with more four-
doors and station wagons, now are coming on
stream, it said.
The company has been, working overtime at its
Newark, Del., and Jefferson Avenue plant in Detroit
to build up stocks of the new models. Overtime is no
longer necessary, it said.
One company spokesperson said there currently
is a 60-day supply of K cars, considered normal for
the industry and somewhat tight by Chrysler's
standards. About half of that is in dealers' hands.
"All of our indicators-retail customers, fleet
buyers and dealers - tell us the K cars are right on
target for the 1980s," Pyle said.

States to assert sovereignty over its
own automotive market."
ON THE OTHER hand, American
Motors Corp. said yesterday it may be
forced into barkruptcy if shareholders
reject a new financing arrangement
with the French automaker Renault.
AMC, which lost $155.7 million in 1980,
said its new vehicle plans will cost $800
million through 1984. Only half of that
amount will be available from its own
operations.
It said it expects to continue losing
money through its 1981 and 1982 fiscal'
years, but predicts a return to
profitability in 1983 and beyond when -
technically advanced Renault-designed
passenger cars and new, fuel-efficient
Jeep vehicles are introduced.
If the Renault agreement is not ap-
proved byshareholders, AMC said it
could default on its credit arrangemen-
ts by Jan. 1 and would be dependent on
cooperation from its creditors while it
seeks alternative financing plans.

Bar exam scores fall
from last year's levels

Class if ieds

LANSING (UPI)-The state bar
exam success rate fell five points to 73
percent in July when compared with
figures for the same month last year,
but officials say there is no cause for
alarm-yet.
The success rate for the 1,041 who
took the July 26-27 test remained above
the national average and was much bet-
ter than on the disastrous February
1979 test which was flunked by a
shocking 43 percent of those who took it.
THAT TEST triggered wide-spread
criticism of Michigan law schools and
some calls in the legislature for drop-
ping the exam as discriminatory and
admitting all law school graduates to
the state bar.
Some law schools have stiffened their
programs, and the exam survived un-
changed.
"All things considered, it was a
creditable showing-better than the
national i-average" said Dennis
Donohoe, assistant secretary of the
State Board of Law Examiners.
"HOWEVER, the success rate con-
tinues the slightly downward curve
License
fee hiked
for bikes
By ELAINE RIDEOUT
Ann Arbor bikers - even if they don't
live in the city - will be required to
register their vehicles for $2.50 or face
fines up to $100 under a revised or-
dinance approved by City Council Mon-
day night.
The new bicycle law, scheduled to
take effect Jan. 1, will add ap-
proximately $14,000 in revenues to the
city bike program, according to city
Bicycle Coordinator Tom Pendleton.
The current program is funded by a
$23,000 appropriation from the state
gasoline and weight tax.
"BICYCLISTS IN Ann Arbor have
been receiving a great deal in
programming and education," Pen-
dleton said. "My intent is that they
should pay something directly for
that."
Under the current law, bicycles must
be registered for 50 cents only at the
time of purchase.
Pendleton said registration may aid
the recovery of stolen bicycles,
although he said stolen bikes are en-
tered into the police department lien
system regardless of registration.
VIOLATION OF the ordinance con-
stitutes a civil infraction punishable by
a maximum penalty of $100.
But, Pendleton said, enforcement in
the city "is pretty nonexistent." He said
the thought bicyclists would be asked for
registration validation only if stopped
for a traffic violation. At that time, he
said, the bicycle might be impounded.
until registered by its owner.
Bicycles owned by children under 12
years old were exempted from the code
in a last-minute amendment.
"Otherwise we would be creating
potential offenders who are not the real
offenders," Councilwoman Leslie
Morris (D-2nd Ward), author of the
amenmeni tsda tiCnn rl

established in recent years," he said.
Donohoe said the five-point drop is
not necessarily "alarming or distur-
bing" and could be attributed to
variances in the tests themselves.
"If in the next two or three years the
trend continues, then I would be con-
cerned. We'll just have to wait and
see."
HE SAID the falling scores on the test
have been attributed to a growing pool
of repeaters as well as a decline in
writing skills which is occuring among
all students. Michigan has no limit on
repeat tests.
The success rate on the July exam is
expected to rise to 75 percent after ap-
peals, compared with 78 percent before
appeals for the July 1979 exams and 82
percent after.
Just over 80 percent of those taking
the test for the first time in July passed,
compared with 27 percent of repeaters.
This past February, the overall sue-
cess rate was only 69 percent.
The nationwide average success rate
dropped from 76 percent in 1974 to 68
percent in 1979.
Tunnel-prowlers
apprehended
Two flashlight-toting students
were caught prowling in the heating
tunnels under Angell Hall early
yesterday morning, police said. The
19-year-old students were looking for.
a way out of the tunnels when they
opened a door leading into the
Museum of Art at 525 S. State St.,
Sgt. Harold Tinsey said. The opened
door triggered an alarm which aler-
ted campus security.
Security officers found the
prowlers and contacted the city
police. The University is deciding
whether to press charges, Director
of Campus Security Walter Stevens
said.
Teenager survives
burning wreck
An unconscious teenager was
pulled from his burning car Monday
night following a head-on collision
with a hit-and-run driver, police said
yesterday.
A witness pulled John Dazy, 17, of
2141 Glencoe Hills Dr., from the
flaming car and called the police,
Sgt. Harold Tinsey said. The victim
was taken to St. Joseph Mercy
Hospital in Ann Arbor where he was
reported in good condition last night.
An eastbound car crossed over the
center lane of Plymouth Rad and
struck Dazy's car head-on, about ten
feet west of Green Road at 8:30 p.m.
Monday. Dazy's car burst into
flames, Tinsey said. The driver of
the striking vehicle abandoned his
disabled car and fled the scene.
After being questioned by police, a
passenger in the suspect's car was
taken to University Hospital, where
he was treated and released.
Police said the owner of the
vehicle has been identified but has
