Monday was the result of recent public

of a number of the public and private
human services agencies in the area.

Velker said city government officials
also need to discuss precisely what role
the city should play in solving the
problems of the poor.
Eleanor Lapides, one of the citizens
on the city's povertyncommittee, said
she thought the committee has done a
reasonably thorough job of researching
the problem of Ann Arbor poverty in the
time allowed. "For the most part, we
did a good job of getting feelers out into
the community," she said.
Lapides said although she thought the
committee had succeeded in identifying
many of the needs in the community, it
might require a full-time department,
to evaluate the problems of poverty on
a more continuous basis.

The Michigan Student Assembly last
night refused to endorse a silent march
which will be held Friday to condemn
Israel's invasion of Lebanon.
The Arab students organizing the
march criticized MSA's decision,
charging that the student government
leaders shied away from the event
Oecause it will be controversial.
4BUT, MSA members insisted that
tey turned down the motion to back the
ps anti-Israeli march
rally because the slogans to be used
Friday did not capture what they
believed are the full issues in the crisis.
In other business last night, the all-
campus student government voted to
spend $250 to help publish a rape
prevention pamphlet, which will be
distributed free to students in the next
few weeks. The booklet hadbeen
published in past years, but had been
absent from campus last year because

ALSO LAST night, the assembly reaf-
firmed its intention to look into the
possibility of placing a small tax on all
tickets purchased for Universtiy
athletic events. MSA last year had
pushed for the tax, which would help
generate money for financial aid. But
this year, with mostly new members on
the assembly, many wanted to look into
the plan more before urging University
officials to act on it.
MSA President Amy Moore said that
the main obstacle to progress on the tax
plan last year was Athletic Director
Don Canham, who she said used his in-
fluence to block the idea. "Canham is
very, very powerful," she said, "overly
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Amid balloons, band tunes, and
a little crooning from Tony Bennett, thousands of people bid
goodbye to San Francisco's cable cars yesterday as the cen-
tury-old system prepared to shut down for a 20-month, $58.2
A parade of the cars festooned with multi-colored balloons,
clumps of bright ribbons and hundreds of flowers rolled over
the city's hills, carrying representatives of corporations and
agencies that donated nearly $10 million for the renovation.
AT 4:45 A.M. PDT today, city officials will press the button
that will shut down the system. It marks the beginning of a
project to breathe new life into the creaking cars and replace
The federal government is adding $44.6 million to the city's
$10 million, and the state is providing $3.6 million.
On Oct. 1, 200 workers will begin tgearing up the 69 city
blocks of track, replacing subterranean pulleys and other

mechanisms that have been around since the beginning.
Sewers and water mains will be replaced, streets will be
resurfaced or reconstructed.
THE PROJECT is scheduled to be complete in June 1984,
111 years after Andrew Smith Hallidie's first car rolled down
a San Francisco hill. Three of the eight lines restored after
the Great Earthquake of 1906 survive today, the nation's oly
mobile National Historic Landmark.
"We shal return," Municipal Railway chief Richard Sklar
told reporters gathered at the brick cable car barn, where the
last car was scheduled to pull in this morning.
Yesterday, buses already were rolling over the 69 blocks
where the cable cars run, ferrying passengers from Union
Square to Fisherman's Wharf past two reviewing stands
where news media and city officials watched the cable car
EAST LANSING (UPI) - A major
study of school busing in Delaware
found that students' academic perfor-
mance improved but their attitudes
toward each other did not, it was repor-
These were the findings of two
Michigan State University researchers
who spent three years studying racial
attitudes and academic performance in
New Castle County, Delaware, where 11
separate districts were consolidated in-
to one under a court order. .
JOHN SCHWEITZER of MSU's ur-
ban affairs program said despite the
mixed results, he does not believe
busing is a mistake. He was en-
thusiastic about students' academic
performance and remained optimistic
about the long term impact on race
The 65,000-student district, which in-
cludes urban Wilmington, was studied
under a grant from the Rockefeller
Schweitzer and cohort Joe Darden
said students from black neighborhoods
scored the biggest academic gains after
busing and also generally had the
healthiest racial attitudes.
PRIOR TO the desegregation order,
students from all-white neighborhoods
were the highest achievers and those
from black ones ranked lowest.
The greatest gains after
desegregation were found in mixed and
heavily black neighborhoods.
District-wide, pupils gained one year
more than the national averge in
SCHWEITZER attributed the im-
provement "primarily to the major
reorganization of the whole school
system and the curriculum and the ef-
fort that was made .by everybody in-
volved to say 'Let's make this thing
Racial atitudes, however, became
somewhat less positive immediately af-
ter the desegregation order and did not
improve thereafter, the researchers
Attitudes were the best in blacl
neighborhoods and the worst in white
"AS LONG AS neighborhoods remain
racially segregated, - school
desegregation will do little to change
racial attitudes," Darden concluded.
Black teachers had better attitudes
toward desegregation than white ones.
Somewhat surprisingly, middle-aged
teachers were more positive than
Schweitzer conceded the findings on
racial attitudes were a disappointment
and stressed they cannot be blamed en:
tirely exclusively on busing.

THE ORGANIZERlS of the conferen-
ce say they plan to make it a regular
event, held at a different presidential
library each year to keep political
leaders in touch with citizens.
A series of "grassroots" town
meetings will be held across the coun-
try in the months before the Feb. 9 con-
ference, according to the event's
leaders. Citizens will debate domestic
issues at these meetings and come up
with reports to be delivered to
policymakers at the annual conference.
The November conference on foreign
policy is not related to the February
meeting, although Ford will attend
both. The November forum, sponsored
by the Gerald Ford Foundation, is in-
tended to "develop a better rapport
between the Congress and the
president" in drawing foreign policy,
explained the foundation's secretary,
University political science Prof.
Several U.S. senators and
t vii U
congressmen will, participate in the
conference along with Ford and the
secretaries of state, said Grassmuck,
who is himself a former presidential
adviser. It will be held Nov. 10 and Nov.
11 at the Ford Library.

NOW EVEN COLLEGE STUDENTS CAN BECOME
The discovery of an entire
new field of knowledge has been
made by Dr. Frank R. Wallace,
a former Senior Research Che-
mist for E.I. du Pont de Ne-
mours & Co. Since mid-1976,
Dr. Wallace has worked to un-
cover a powerful array of new
knowledge called NEO-TECH.
That new knowledge allows or-
dinary people to prosper - even
flourish - anywhere in the
world. Last January, NTP co-
lumnist Eric Savage obtained
this information from Dr. Wal-
lace at his home in southern
Nevada. For a copy of this re-
vealing information, send $1.00
