Council debates street
By KRISTIN STAPLETON
The Ann Arbor City Council last night
tabled a plan that would make parts of
two campus streets one way thorough-
fares and add a traffic signal at an ad-
Council asked Acting City Ad-
ministrator Godfrey Collins to provide
more information about how the
alterations of Thompson, Monroe, and
Packard Streets would affect the
residents of that district and the traffic
flow on those roads.
THE PROPOSED alterations, which
were requested by the State Street
Merchant's Association to relieve con-
gestion, would make Thompson Street
one way from William to Jefferson,
Monroe Street one way from Packard
to State Street, add a traffic signal at
the Packard/Monroe/Thompson inter-
section, and remove the stop sign at
Thompson and Madison.
Collins indicatedthat the city tran-,
sportation department is also con-
sidering eliminating the Monroe access
onto Packard by making it a dead end
Council tabled the motion until next
week despite requests from the mer-
chant's association to have the changes
completed before the beginning of the
Larry Hunter (D-First Ward) said he
was concerned that the city is becoming
"cluttered with traffic signals." He
questioned the city's method of deter-
mining where signals should be placed.
Raphael Ezekiel (D-Third Ward)
agreed. "I'm dubious about the cost-
benefit of putting that new light up," he
The traffic issue was the only con-
troversial resolution brought up at the
brief and unusually harmonious council
meeting. The meeting was not
marked by the partisan bickering that
so often occurs at council meetings.
In other business, council "voted to
amend an ordinance to allow a
restaurant to be built on the northeast
corner of Huron and State Streets. It-
also approved measures to aid residen-
ts whose homes were damaged by
The council also approved resolutions=
to purchase a dump truck and under-
body scrapers. Virginia Johansen (D-
Third Ward) reported that the Hunger
Coalition- which the city provided
$2,500 to serve meals to the poor - is
serving about 90 people per meal and is
in need of volunteers.
Mayor Louis Belcher was absent.

NEW YORK (AP)- What's this
year's most expensive college? One
newly published college guide puts the
student tab at $12,250, a second says
$13,500. But no one disputes that the
Massachusetts Institute of Technology
tops the list.
Still, some highly selective schools
remain not only affordable, but
downright cheap. "Competitive
Colleges," just published by Peterson's
Guides in Princeton, N.J., lists Cooper
Union in New York as the least expen-
sive college. Students pay a $300 annual
fee to cover items like student activities
and yearbooks, but no tuition.
THE 123-YEAR-old private school
pulls this off with the help of a $43.9
million endowment started by its 19th
century founder, New York
businessman Peter Cooper, who once
said that "education should be as free
as air and water."
A second recently published guide,
the College Board's "College Cost
Book," lists the total cost for a year at
all 3,200 public and private colleges, in-
cluding tuition and fees, room and
board, books and personal expenses.
The book doesn't separately list the
most expensive schools, but board
spokesman Fred Moreno says MIT's
$13,500 is tops. A year ago, small, highly
competitive Bennington College in
Vermont was listed as most expensive
"COMPETITIVE Colleges" focuses
on what it considers the 296 most selec-
tive schools. Unlike the College Board's
guide, it includes separate lists of the 10
most and least expensive colleges, but
does not include in its cost estimates a
student's expected personal expenses.
So MIT also places first in the guide,
but is said to cost just $12,250.
The remaining most expensive
schools in the guide are Bennington,
$12,140; Harvard-Radcliffe, $12,100; St.
John's College, in Annapolis, Md.,
$11,900; Barnard College, $11,842; Yale
In a story yesterday ("Mayor vetoes
controversial plan"), the Daily in-
correctlyreported thata University
class taught by city councilmember
Rapbael Ezekiel would get $15,000 from
the city to pay for a survey of city
human services. Actually, the city
allocated only $5,000, to be spent by the
Ann Arbor Community Development
Department, for the costs of that sur-
vey, which would have been conducted
by Ezekiel's class.
University, $11,790; Tufts University,
$11,763; Bard College, $11,762; Sarah
Lawrence College, $11,750; and Univer-
sity of Pennsylvania, $11,700.
The nine least expensive schools,
besides Cooper Union, are California
State University, Hayward, $345; North
Carolina State University, Raleigh,
$2,672; University of Missouri-
Columbia, $2,718; Virginia Polytechnic
Institute, $2,784; Auburn University,
$2,790; New Mexico Institute of Mining
and Technology, $2,828; Virginia
Military Institute, $2,860; University of
North Carolina, Chapel Hill, $2,876; and
