U.S. to ease discriminationl laws
WASHINGTON (AP)- Reversing a
12-year-old government policy, the
Reagan administration said yesterday
it plans to allow tax-exempt status for
private schools that discriminate
The announcement of the shift came
late .yesterday in documents filed with
the Supreme Court, which had agreed
to hear two separate appeals
challenging the old policy.
THE TWO-PAGE statement filed
with the court by Justice Department
lawyers contained no explanation. The
statement said the government plans to
give a tax exemption to two schools that
have been fighting to gain it despite,
their admitted racially discriminatory
policies. They are Bob Jones University
in Greenville, S.C., and Goldsboro
Christian Schools in Goldsboro, N.C.
The two Supreme Court appeals came
from those schools.
The government statement said the
Treasury Department, which includes
the Internal Revenue Service, has
"commenced the process necessary to
revoke forthwith" the IRS procedures
that had been used to deny tax exem-
ptions to racially discriminatory
THERE WAS no indication when that
process would be completed. The IRS
announced the previous policy in 1970.
Since that time, the agency has cited
racial bias as the basis for revoking
more than 100 exemptions and denying
tax-exempt status to an unspecified
number of other private schools.
Bob Jones University forbids in-
terracial dating and marriage. Gold-
sboro bars all black students from
The Justice Department said it was
taking steps to return to Bob Jones its
tax-exempt status, and was preparing
to grant such status to Goldsboro for the
"The United States therefore asks
that the judgments of the court of ap-
peals be vacated as moot," the gover-
nment told the high court yesterday.
Local Dems appeal new redistricting plan

ADAMO SAID, "The law says that
when you draw districts, you should try
for equality. They didn't try at all."
Adamo and Sallade called the
dering-dividing an area into election
districts to give one political party an
electoral majority in a large number of
districts. In this case, the advantage is
given to the Republicans, the attorneys
Adamo said the first criterion for
determining district boundaries should
be population, but they should not
divide cities and townships, if possible.
"They should not be drawn for partisan
advantage," Adamo said.
THE CLERK of the Appeals Court
said the court probably will hear
several cases concerning redistricting
issues, Sallade said. Since 1982 is an
election year, if the lawsuits are still
unresolved in June, the candidates will
not be able to file their petitions for
election, he added.
If the case is appealed beyond the
local Appeals Court, the August elec-
tion may be delayed, Sallade said. If the
Appeals Court decides in favorof his
clients, it is likely that the plan will be
returned to the Commission for
revision, Sallade continued.
"If I lose, I will take the case to the
Michigan Supreme Court, and if
necessary to the United States Supreme
Court," Sallade said. "It's going to be
tough and we're just beginning to

mittee "takes the recommendations and prioritizes
them," Ryan said. Eventually, the options are
discussed with several University officials, including
Plant Director Russell Reister, Safety Director Walt
Stevens, and engineering consultants.
"Most decisions are made with recommendations
by these people," explained Jack Weidenbach,. the
University's director of business operations, who
makes final budgetary decisions. "There's not
usually much disagreement; there's usually a con-
census," he added, and said of the Economics
Building decisions: "We know there's a lot of
recommendations we don't comply with from the in-
surance company. It's just a lack of funds."
Q contributed by the pubshe
GIVEN THE University's tight money supply,
Weidenbach explained that "our priority is on life
safety. And funds we have are spent in that way."
"We'd rather lose a building than a life," Insurance
Director Ryan said. He described a "tremendous" ef-
fort by the University to insure "life safety" in the
Economics Building throughout the past decade, an
effort which included renovation of the structure's
heating and electrical systems, and installation of
many new fire extinguishers and alarms..
"There's more money spent on life safety than on
preservation," Fire Marshal Downing concurred,
adding that it would be "ideal," but financially im-
possible, to have sprinkler systems installed in each
of the campus' nearly 200 class buildings. "The
amount of money needed to do that would be fan-
tastic," he said. "The almighty dollar controls what's
done and what isn't done."
JAGDISH JANVEJA, a manager in the Univer-
sity's Engineering Services, has overseen many fire
safety projects undertaken on campus buildings, and
is a member of the Fire Protection Project Commit-
tee. He estimated yesterday that a complete
sprinkler system for the Economics Building would
have cost nearly $50,000.
"We can design such systems, and implement
them, but (Director of Business Operations) Weiden-
bach controls the money," Janveja added.
The 1971 recommendation for an Economics
Building sprinkler system was automatically
renewed each year, William Ryan explained. "Once
a recommendation gets on one of these blue sheets,
it'll remain there forever."
THE ECONOMICS Building was one of many
buildings which was recurrently mentioned in the IRI
reports, the documents revealed. Sprinkler systems
for parts of Angell Hall, Tappan Hall, both
engineering buildings, the Michigan League and
Michigan Union, as well as the Undergraduate
Library, were recommended.
While those buildings did not receive their
proposed systems, 17 buildings did since the 1972-73
fiscal year, according to Ryan. These include all or
part of the Chemistry Building, Hill Auditorium, the
Health Service Building, the Natural Science
Building, Yost Ice Arena, and structures on the Flint
and Dearborn campuses.
According to Frank Stafford, chairman of the
Economics Department, there is little resentment on
the part of its faculty toward Universityofficials.
"I don't think the faculty blames the University,"
Stafford said. "The University took very good
precautions for the building."
The Industrial Risk Insurers Company, which will
finance the construction of, the new Economics
Building, has hired the GeneralAdjustment Bureau
to settle the University's claim, Ryan said. His office
and GAB will begin negotiations next week on the set-
tlement, after a complete inventory and loss estimate
are prepared,he said.
"I expect the settlement to be smooth and
reasonable," Ryan concluded yesterday.
It has yet to be determined whether the exterior
walls of the burned building will be used in a "recon-
struction" of the old facility. Several economics
faculty members have expressed a desire to see the
Italianate-style structure preserved.
Next Friday, the University will hold a public
hearing (2-4 p.m., Regents Room of the Ad-
ministration Building) to discuss options for re-
building of the Economics Department.

Rescuers continue hunt
for mudslide victims
SANTA CRUZ- Rescuers used bulldozers andbackhoes yesterday to un-
cover buried homes where up to 20 people are feared dead and labored to
reach dozens of residents still stranded along roads blocked by mudslides.
The death toll from one of the worst storms in Northern California history
stood at 26, and the state Office of Emergency Services said 539 people had
reported injuries and the damage estimate had reached $280 million.
Water remained critically short throughout Santa Cruz County, although
officials said voluntary conservation efforts appeared to be succeeding.
"Life definitely is not back to normal," said sheriff's Sgt. Bruce Simpson.
"The city government is closed, all the schools are closed. The Health
Department has closed down all businesses that use water, which is just
about everybody. The five largest employers in the county are all closed."
Cigarette and liquor taxes
may increase, legislators say
LANSING- So-called "nuisance taxes"-levies on such items as cigaret-
tes and liquor-may be considered this year as a means of easing the state's
budget problems, lawmakers said yesterday.
However, few were willing to predict outright that new taxes will be
raised, or that they will not be earmarked for special categories, such as
secondary or higher education.
House Republican Leader William Bryant of Grosse Pointe Farms said
nuisance taxes "are always a possibility," especially in times of severe
budget problems, such as the state is now facing.
GOP support for increasing the taxes, he said, "would depend on what it is,
how much it is and what it's going to be used for. There would not be much
support if it's going to social services, but if it goes to education, there may
Police end search
of lake for Dozier
VERONA, Italy- Police frogmen aided by amphibious craft and a
helicopter searched a small lake yesterday on an anonymous tip that Red
Brigades terrorists had dumped the body of kidnapped U.S. Brig. Gen.
James Dozier there. The operation was abandoned after six hours as another
The hunt for Dozier entered its fourth week with no clues to the kidnap-
pers' hideaway, but police were confident the 50-year-old general was still
Police also said they believed they knew the identity of three of the Red
Brigades terrorists who snatched Dozier from his Verona apartment Dec.
17. Composite sketches based on the evidence of witnesses matched with
photographs of gang suspects in police files, they said.
The names were not disclosed, but file photographs and names were cir-
culated among the thousands of police engaged in the hunt for Dozier, the top
NATO officer in southern Europe.
UAW and automakers
to renegotiate contract
CHICAGO- In a historic move, United Auto Workers negotiators for
General Motors Corp. and Ford Motor Co. voted yesterday to reopen con-
tract discussions with the automakers in light of the industry's deepening
The 225-member Ford Council joined the 330-member GM Council in ap-
proving a request by union leaders to start collective bargaining discussions.
Automakers havesaid they are ready to sit down at the bargaining table,
with the union as soon as workers give their approval.
Negotiations are expected to begin early next week. The vote by Ford
representatives was 97 percent in favor of the resolution, one union vice

design did get a test for a sub-disaster
situation. We saw about 85 patients in
about two hours, without interrupting
APPROXIMATELY 35 percent of the
patients seen at the emergency room
are not "true emergencies" but are
minor cases, Mackenzie said.
Mackenzie said the renovations will
provide a "nice testing ground" for ef-
ficient design of space and equipment
for the Emergency Service in the new
hospital, which will be built within the
next five years.
"We're fortunate we had to renovate
on a small scale while designing the
new service," he said, "and we hope we
can make corrections (in the new
facility's design) at a far less cost."
MACKENZIE SAID he found one
aspect of the facility that needs correc-
tion. A small room designated for
treating minor cuts and lacerations has
proved to be inefficient because it is not
being used regularly by the staff, he
Other Emergency Service
renovations include a new helicopter
pad. The new pad is closer to the
hospital's entrance so patients no
longer have to be transferred to an am-
bulance. About 10 to 12 patients per
month are brought to University
Hospital by helicopter, Mackenzie said.
A new driveway, parking lot and
elevators reserved only for emergency
use have also been built. "We wanted to
provide an aura of welcome," Macken-
zie said. "The downstairs entrance was
like a morgue-dull."
