Election issues this

year not so'colorful'

Seven years ago, Richard Ankli, a
candidate for the Human Rights Par-
ty--a local group of students, anti-war
activists, and White Panthers-won a
nomination in the City Countil primary
on a tongue-in-cheek platform of
"foolishness." Ankli, who ran his cam-

33 hours
FALMOUTH, England (AP) - Six-
teen seamen who clung to the stern of
their split tanker for 33 hours in tur-
bulent seas were saved by a Dutch
helicopter yesterday. But the British
coast guard said it was pointless to con-
tinue looking for 15 other sailors and
called off the search.
The rescued seamen were winched to
safety from a chunk of the Greek tanker
Victory, which broke up in the stormy
North Atlantic north of the Azores.
THE BODY OF one sailor was
removedfrom a liferaft in the dramatic
operation carried out despite waves
surging to 30 feet and winds of 70 miles
an hour.
The 16 survivors, who had clung to
the shattered stern for 33 hours after
the 12,487-ton tanker broke up in a
storm early Friday, were ferried to two
Dutch Navy frigates in the areal the
Van Speijk and Callenburgh.
Mike Clouston, senior watch officer
at the-Falmouth Coast Guard station,
said that both frigates were medically
equipped but none of the survivors
needed medical attention.
MINUTES AFTER, the tanker broke
up at 1:30 a.m. Friday, 12, crewmen
abandoned ship and launched a life raft
but it was smashed by the gale-whipped
waves and capsized, Clouston said.
For the next 24 hours, the rest of the
crew clung to every available hold on
what was left of the stern,-consisting of
the bridge superstructure, radio room
and flooded engine room.

However, tomorrow's primary elec-
tions-held in two of the city's five war-
ds-don't promise the same color as
those of 1975. Times have changed; the
Human Rights Party no longer exists,
and Ankli, now a registered nurse at the
University Hospital, has long since left
the political arena. The candidates in
tomorrow's primaries, and their issues,
are much more conventional.
LARRY HUNTER, a social worker
for the American Friends Service
Committee, will challenge incumbent
Earl Greene in the Democratic
primary of the First Ward-a
traditionally Democratic area with a
high student population.
Greene said his chief concern in this

year's race is the revitalization of Ann
Arbor. The city needs to build up its
downtown area, according to Greene, to
attract new businesses which would
generate more employment, and to
ease what he perceives as an Ann Arbor
housing shortage.
Hunter, on the other hand, said he
sees direct improvement of social
programs and aid to the city's under-
priveleged as the most important issues
Council must address.
THE WINNER of the First Ward
Democratic primary will run against
Republican Jeffrey Gallatin, a local
realtor, in the April general election.
Gallatin said his main concern in the
election is that city government of-
ficials are "voting on issues they know

nothing about. They're completely un-
prepared to vote or even discuss an
issue," Gallatin claimed. "Yet they
vote anyway, passing new laws and
changing the zoning of various proper-
ties, increasing taxes, housing inspec-
tion fees, etcetera, which are bad for
you and me and make it harder, if not
impossible, for us to pay our bills and
just exist."
In the Third Ward Republican
primary, the main point of "contention
between Gary Hann, a local real estate
professional,.and incumbent David
Fisher is the investment of the $43
million city workers' pension fund.
HANN SAID he staunchly supports
keeping the funds generated by the
pension plan in Michigan by investing

them only in those businesses with no
out-of-state holdings.
According to Fisher, however, this
plan is unrealistic. It would take money
away from many of the state's major
corporations, he said, and it would not
earn satisfcatory monetary returns.
Democratic candidate Raphael
Ezekiel, a University associate
professor in social psychology, will
meet the winner of this primary race in
the general elections for the council
seat in the Third Ward, an area with a
lower per capita income, which
generally is considered to be the "swing
ACCORDING TO Ezekiel, the main
issues of the primary are unem-
ployment, social services, aid to the

underpriveleged, and crime preven-
tion. "The city government is essen-
tially run to make Ann Arbor a pleasant
place for the rich and the upper-middle
class and professinals," he claimed.
"The city has been run to make it more
and more difficult to live in Ann Arbor
if you're not affluent," he added.
According to the candidates and
councilmembers who are not running
for re-election this year, last Decem-
ber's redistricting of the city's wards
will not have much effect on the out-
come of the elections.

gain pact
From UPI and AP
DETROIT- Ford Motor Co. and the United Auto
Workers union reached tentative agreement last
night on a historic 31-month contract intended to
revive the slumping auto industry.
The agreement, reached 13 days -after talks
resumed at the No. 2 automaker, was announced by
UAW President Douglas Fraser, chief UAW
bargainer Donald Ephlin and Ford Board Chairman
Philip Caldwell, who was in Hong Kong but had a
statement released at a news conference.
"WE BELIEVE the agreement represents a
major achievement in terms of providing UAW
members at Ford with greater job security," the
UAW leaders said in a statement.
Fraser and Ephlin added that the new agreement
contains "a numIer of provisions aimed at preser-
ving jobs and insuring the stability of income for
UAW-Ford workers."
Under the agreement, Ford will place a two-year
moratorium on shutting down plants the company
had planned to close.
The company said it:; would begin an "em-
ployment guarantee" project at selected plants in
which workers with 15 years or more service would
receive 50 percent of their income if they are laid
off, until they reach age 62 or retire.
FORD PROVIDED UAW workers with a profit-
sharing plan and a new training program to go
along with high technology'. The company agreed to
a strengthened Supplemental Unemployment
Benefit program with prompt resumption of checks
to laid off workers.
Ford's SUB program, which supplements state
unemployment benefits, recently ran out of money.
In return, the union gave up its nine paid personal
holidays per year and bonuses paid for working on
Sunday. Cost-of-livingallowances will be frozen for
the next nine months.

A controversial state-wide plan to cut 1
medical school enrollments next year by 14
percent in an attempt to control rising health
care costs will have little economic impact, a
state medical school dean said yesterday.
The reduction, expected to take effect in the
fall of next year, was proposed by the
Michigan Medical School's Council of Deans
in response to a request by the governor's Of- ;
fice of health and Medical Affairs (OHMA).
THE REQUEST was based on the assum-
ption that a surplus of physicians contributes
to increasing health care costs. OHMA main-
tains that since physicians are responsible for
major decisions which lead to health expen-

Syrian troops battle
Moslem extremists

DAMASCUS, Syria (AP) - Hurling
grenades and firing assault rifles, flak-
jacketed troops fought house to house -
and in some cases hand to hand yester-
day against diehard anti-government

thern city of Hama, Syrian- officials

says the fighting erupted when police
entered the city to arrest members of
the Moslem Brotherhood, met armed
resistance, and summoned the army.
TANKS CIRCLED the city Feb. 3 and
shelled Brotherhood hideouts. Helicop-
ter gunships were also deployed by the
government, and the well-placed
Syrian source said apparently two were
shot down.
What's worrisome to the Syrians is

how well armed the extremists are.
"The army thought they could get it over
with in 24 hours," said a well-placed
Syrian source. "They did not expect
them (the fundamentalists) to have
such weapons."
The unrest seems to be the most
serious confrontation betweeen Assan
and the Moslem Brotherhood, which
has assassinated government officials
and planted several bombs in more
than two years of anti-government
The Hama hositilities led Syria to
lodge a formal complaint against the
United States after State Department
spokesman Dean Fischer told reporters
last Wednesday that serious fighting
was going on in the region.
Syria complained that the remarks
represented U.S. meddling in Syria's
internal affairs.

Tuition skyrockets in
schools across country

NEW YORK (UPI) - A $50,000 tab for a
college education at the higher-priced
private schools soon will wallop thousands
of American budgets.
A United Press International survey
showed yesterday that some tuitions will hit
$12,000 a year in the 1982-83 school year.
IF THE PRICES keep going up, the cost of
four years will be more than $50,000 by 1985
at the most expensive schools.
For bargain hunters, there are the state
universities such as those in Texas, heavily
subsidized by state funds, where the ap-
propriation per student in a public univer-
sity if $4,354.
The cost to the student is $4 a credit or $120
for a full load of 30 credits during the school
THE STATE appropriations per student
at the public colleges in the nation range
from a high of $12,712 in Alaska to a low of

$1,943 in New Hampshire.
At many other state universities tuition
increages are expected due to state budget
cutbacks, said James Trulove, editor of
"Memo to College Presidents," put out by
the American Association of State Colleges
and Universities.
In the academic stratosphere, meanwhile,
all-time high bills in the $12,000 ballpark are
projected mostly at the expensive private
schools such as Yale University and Stan-
ford University. There are dozens of-such
schools across America.
