Though Congress has yet to act on
President Reagan's proposed cutbacks
in financial aid, a bill approved by the
House G Appropriations Committee,
which provides additional funds for the
Guaranteed Student Loan program,
may be evidence that legislative op-
position to the cuts is increasing.
The House committee voted last week
to allocate an extra $1.3 billion to the.
GSL program for the remainder of the
1982 fiscal year. This allocation will
financially cover an earlier
Congressional resolution that called for
continued support of the federal finan-
cial aid programs.

Several citizens and University
groups, including the Ann Arbor Tenan-
ts' Union, have recently leveled
charges at Jeffrey Gallatin, Republican
candidate for city council in the First
Ward, accusing him of being an unfair
landlord and a "slumlord."

WASHINGTON- Declaring that the
Soviet Union has "a definite margin of
superiority," President Reagan last
night rejected any immediate freeze of
U.S. and Soviet nuclear missiles.
Reagan told a nationally televised
news conference such a proposal, now
pending in Congress, would be
dangerous to the United States and
would remove any incentive for the
Soviet Union to negotiate substantial
cutbacks in superpower nuclear ar-
REAGAN INSTEAD gave his support
to another proposal, which would call
for a freeze only after the United States
has closed the gap in weapons areas
where the administration says the
Soviets have an edge.
"We cannot afford to repeat past
mistakes," Reagan said in apparent
reference to past agreements with the
Soviets that he and other critics claim
forfeited advantages to the Kremlin.
He reaffirmed that his goal "is to
reduce nuclear weapons dramatically,
assuring peace and security." But he
said the Soviets now enjoy enough of a
"margin of superiority" that "there is
risk and there is what . have called

COHEN, THE associate director of
the Tenants' Union, says he has had
"calls with complaints (about Gallatin)
for the two and a half years I've been
here." Cohen also stated that Gallatin
has a "history of complaints" from
previous occupants of his rental proper-
"I don't know how he (Gallatin) can'
say he's for tenants' rights. I'm sort of
dumbfounded," Cohen added.
Gallatin's campaign promises have
stressed tenants' rights as a priority
and he says he is, planning, if elected, to
donate money from his council salary
to the Ann Arbor Tenants Union,
"I DON'T want any of his money,"
said Cohen, referring to the money as

he's saying now," Cohen added.

3rd Ward candidates opposed on

Commonly known as the "swing

Fisher, who has served on the council
for four years and is an assistant vice

Ezekiel, 50, is an associate professor
of social psychology at the University,
and has been involved in the Civil
Rights Movement, the Anti-War
Movement, and the Anti-Nuclear
Power Movement. He said he is
dissatisfied with some of the attitudes
of the present city council.
"I'm really tired of the passivity of
the city government. The city gover-
nment is run by Republicans. They sit
around," he said. "They do nothing
about the sector of the city that's in real
" I EXPECT TO be representing the
issues of tenants. The Republicans
basically represent the interests of
business," Ezekiel said. "In exchange,
the students have to organize so they
can be represented."
Major differences between the can-
didates surface in their stands on this
year's ballot proposals. Ezekiel said he
supports all of the proposals, but his in-
cumbent opponent said he has
problems with many of them.
Fisher, 37, said he does not support
the proposal which calls for a millage to
repair, streets and roads in the city.
"Road and street repair is a basic city
service," he said. "We should not have
an additional millage. The money (for
the repairs) should come from the
general fund, from programs that are
not basic city services."
FISHER ALSO does not support the
proposal calling for city funds for the
Farmer's Market. He said he is con-
cerned that if the Market were an in-
door facility - part of the funds would
be used for enclosure - the change
would "destroy the integrity of a
historic city structure.

maturing, NASA is going to press for its
long-sought goal of a multi-person or-
"We're working hard at pulling the
plan together and will present it to the
administration later this year," said
NASA Administrator James Beggs. He
said it would establish a permanent

THE EFFORT began five years ago
when the agency asked the Carter ad-
ministration for $25 million to begin
studies leading to a large station. At the
time; the shuttle, bedeviled by
technical problems, was a long way
from the launch pad and the ad-
ministration said no.
Now, buoyed by two successful test
flights and with a third just completed,
NASA is determined.
"We have set a space station as our
next important goal," Beggs said. "'On-
ce that station is built, our potential to
exploit space will be almost unlimited.
We will learn to build large structures
in space, such as power generators.
"WE COULD construct large com-
munications antennas and perhaps
even other structures that could control
climate and agricultural activity
utilizing the power of the sun."
Amtrak to build new station
By JANET RAE
-Groundbreaking for a $650,000 Amtrak
station in Ann Arbor has been
scheduled for April 15, city and Amtrak
officials said yesterday. The new
station will be built next to the existing
facility on Depot Street.
Construction by Elgin Builders of
Southfield should be completed by the
end of the year, according to Pamela
Dickson, Amtrak director for corporate
DICKSON SAID the new facility will
be built on part of the existing station's
parking lot. An additional 100 parking
spaces will be cleared on the opposite
side of the railroad tracks to replace the
40 spaces which will be lost.
Amtrak and Michigan's Department
of Transportation will evenly split costs
of the new building. Amtrak also will
pay for track and signal improvements,
and will buy the site for the new parking
lot from Conrail, Dickson said.
According to Bill Duggan, regional
director of passenger services, con-
struction of the new station will be a
long-overdue improvement to Amtrak's
Ann Arbor facilities.
"THE PRESENT station is very,
very small. It can only handle 25 or 30
people effectively," Duggan said. "The
new facility should be able to handle
upwards of 75 people."
Plans for improvement include ad-
ding stairways leading up to the
existing Broadway Street bridge to
allow for overhead pedestrian access to
the new lot.
Ann Arbor Planning Director Martin
Overhiser said Amtrak also plans to
construct a covered platform extending
west from the bridge along the tracks.
Overhiser said Ann Arbor officials
convinced Amtrak to include lan-
dscaping in its plans in return for in-
stallation of city parking meters in the
old lot. The meters would create an in-
centive to park free of charge in the
new lot, he said, and a portion of the
meter revenues would be returned to
