Reagan may back forced balanced budget
WASHINGTON (AP) - President Reagan, now
advocating the largest deficits in history, is expected
to throw his support behind a proposed constitutional
amendment requiring a balanced budget, ad-
ministration sources said yesterday.
Chief White House economist Murray Weidenbaum
would not confirm that a presidential endorsement
was imminent, but he acknowledged yesterday that
"we are very seriously considering and developing
our specific position."
"QUITE CLEARLY, these largedeficits make the
case for a constitutional balanced-budget amendment
and tax limitation increasingly compelling."
Weidenbaum said in an interview on CBS.
A year ago, Weidenbaum urged Congress to try to
balance the budget under existing law rather than
tinker with the Constitution.
And a White House source quoted the president as
telling Republicans at a private fund-raising recep-
tion Monday night in Oklahoma City that he was in-
clined to favor the amendment.

20 die in Illinois plane crash
WOODSTOCK, Ill.- An Illinois National Guard aircraft crashed last night
in rural northern Illinois, killing all 20 aboard, police said.
Woodstock Police Sgt. Michael Fischer said the KC-135 was carrying a
crew of seven and 13 passengers when it went down in a muddy farm field in
this town of 10,000 about 50 miles northwest of Chicago.
The aircraft, the military equivalent of a Boeing 707, left Sawyer Air Force
Base in northern Michigan and was bound for Chicago's O'Hare Inter-
national Airport, Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Bob Rain-
State police got first word of the crash at 9:15 p.m.
The plane was from the 126th Air Refueling Wing of the guard, stationed at
O'Hare, said Master Sgt. Jerry Belke.
GM, UAW close to accord

United Auto Workers and General Motors Corp. with officials of both sides
hopeful agreement could be reached before dawn on a new concessionary
GM, which earned $333 million last year, wants its 320,000 hourly workers
to forfeit nine paid personal holidays per year, accept a wage freeze and
defer three cost-of-living allowance increases. Analysts estimate the plan
would save the No.1 automaker $2.5 billion over 2 years.
Ip return, GM offers a two-year moratorium on plant closings, a limit on
subcontracting of work to non-union and overseas facilities, guaranteed in-
come for laid-off higher seniority workers, improved benefits for other laid-
off workers and profit sharing.
Bargainers reached agreement Thursday on several contract issues, in-
cluding employee stock and training programs.
Student kills teacher in school
WASHINGTON (AP) - The national
economy, far from recovering in the
January-March quarter as the Reagan
administration once hoped, is sinking at
the same pace as during the final mon-
ths of last year, government
economists estimated yesterday.
The Commerce Department also
reported that U.S. companies' profits
are falling along with the overall
economy, dropping sharply in the Oct-
tober-December quarter and declining
during 1981 for the second year in a row.

The estimate was not formally

was an adviser to President Lyndon
Johnson in the 1960s, added that tax

tore down an historic house to build a
new structure, plans had to be ap-
proved by the City Council. The Taco
Bell, however, moved into an already-
existing building, and only had to meet
the inspector's approval.
DONALDSON SAID the Taco Bell has
not violated any city ordinances, and is
free to renovate the building. The food
store is entitled to 30 feet for a sign, and
it hasn't exceeded that limit, he ex-
Engineering Prof. Lawrence Mc-
Mahon, who is going to City Council
with Farah, said they are hoping either
to have the ordinance changed, or the
whole front of the Taco Bell declared a
sign. "I would assume that their whole
pseudo-adobe structure is part of their
sign," he said.
McMahon said he thinks the South
University area is getting "tackier by
the minute" and he hopes that if enough
attention is brought to the Taco Bell
situation, something can be done. "I see
the thing from my window and it's pot a
pleasant sight," McMahon said. "It's
totally out of line with what's been the
trend in Ann Arbor, which has been to
avoid false fronts and stick with the
GLEN GALE, the building's owner,
said its original structure is an ugly
pale yellow, and that he thinks the food
chain has greatly improved it.
"They've put in big arched windows,
redone the surface of the building, and
will have lots of plants in the front win-
dows," Gale said. "I think it's going to
Because the store moved into an
already existing building, Gale said it
will not be like other Taco Bells.
"Usually Taco Bell builds its stores on
empty land, so they had to completely
redesign this one," Gale said. "It's so
different from the others that they had
to get approval from Pepsico, the
.The original building "was not ar-
chitecturally significant, so we are
redoing it," explained Stephan Jordan,
the project architect. Jordan said he
tried to minimalize work on the front of
the building, but-because Taco Bell
isn't as well known as some other fast-
food chains-it needs the traditional
stucco and arched windows.
HE ADDED THAT there will be other
differences in this particular store. It
will seat 110-most seat only 42-there
will be warmer lighting, more plants,
photo murals on the walls, and a more
intimate atmosphere, he said. "We
tried to make it into an atmosphere
rather than a large dining area."
"As an architect I can see their (the
protestors') position, but we've tried to
do the best we could with the building

yesterday by a fellow student who was later shot by police as he walked

Clarence Piggott, 55, a psychology and sociology teacher, was shot
through the heart shortly before classes began at 8 a.m. at Valley High
School, officials said. He died pn an operating table at Sunrise Hospital a
short time later.
Half a dozen students in his class laughed when a student identified by
school officials as Pat Lizotte walked to the door, pulled a .22-caliber pistol
from a holster under his coat, and fired one shot at Piggott, police said.
Students said they thought it was a stunt until Piggott collapsed.
They watched in shock as their teacher's assailant placed the pistol back
in its holster and strolled out of the building. He then opened fire randomly
on students entering the building, striking Martin Jameson, 17, a junior, and
Jose Garcia, 17, a senior, police said.
Federal funding cut
in discrimination suit
WASHINGTON- The Education Department, in its first such action in a
decade, said yesterday it is cutting off the federal funds of a Mississippi
school district in a discrimination dispute that began on a basketball court.
A department official said funds will cease April 5 for Perry County
Schools, where the school board refuses to rehire two coaches who were fired
for refusing to let more whites play during high school games.
Although the Mississippi Supreme Court upheld the firings on grounds of
insubordination, a federal administrative law judge concluded last March
that they were discriminatory and said the court had not considered that
The law judge held the district violated the equal eriployment section -of
the 1964 Civil Rights Act by discriminating against a county high school's
coaches and black basketball players.
