Council votes to
make Tompson
one-way street

By KRISTIN STAPLETON
Ann Arbor will gain one more stretch
of one-way street and one more traffic
signal in the next few weeks, Ann Arbor
City Council decreed Monday night.
The vote,,6-3 with Democrats opposed
and two absent, will make Thompson a
one-way street between William and
Jefferson streets, remove a stop sign at
the intersection of Thompson and
Madison, and establish a traffic signal
at the intersection of Monroe, Packard,
and Thompson streets must west of
South Quad.
THE PURPOSE of the adjustments is
to remove some of the congestion
around the intersection of Thompson
and William streets and divert some of
State Street traffic south on Thompson
to Packard, said John Robbins, Ann
Arbor traffic director.
The plan met opposition from the
Democrats on council. Larry Hunter
(D-First Ward) was not convinced the
changes would ease traffic flow. "I'm
not convinced that we have all the op-
tions before us to solve this problem,"
he said.
Raphael Ezekiel (D-Third Ward)
questioned the plan, saying "It will
create a rather strange traffic pat-

tern." He suggested an alternate plan.
"The simplest solution to the
congestion problem would be to
eliminate the block of one-way on State
Street (between William and Liberty)."
Robbins replied that, although that
would be simpler, it might result in
problems with the great number of
pedestrians who cross the State Street in
that area.
DAVID CAHILL, manager of an
apartment building on Monroe, voiced
his disapproval of the plan at the
meeting. He said the changes would
result in a dramatic increase of traffic.
on Thompson and Monroe, a "basically
pedestrian area."
"You're going to have dead students;
you're bound to," Cahill said.
Robbins said the traffic department
was also considering blocking off the
outlet from Monroe onto Thompson. He,
said this would make it easier for traf-
fic going east on Thompson to turn onto,
Packard. That project could not be
developed until next year, he said,
because the winter weather will delay,
construction.
The new traffic signal will cost the,
city $25,000. The money will come from
the traffic department.

and South African troops regularly
cross into southern Angola to attack
SWAPO and its Angolan allies.
Angola, supported by the other black
African "front-line nations," says it
will only send home the estimated
12,000 to 15,000 Cuban troops when the
military threat from South Africa
disappears.
The question of Cuban troops
emerged publicly just as it seemed the
parties were about to reach final
agreement on a cease-fire and set up
elections for a constitutional assembly.
Agreement seemed so near in August
that the United Nations began lining up
personnel to oversee the cease-fire.
THEN THE United States began to
link Namibian independence, which
would include withdrawal of South Afri-
can troops from the territory, to with-
drawal of Cuban troops from Angola.
To the delight of the South Africans,
the Reagan administration saw a chan-
ce to achieve its larger global aim of
reversing Soviet penetration in
developing countries.
Bush said in Nairobi, Kenya, that the
United States was not ashamed to state
its goal of getting all foreign troops out
of southern Africa. He said the in-
troduction of the Cuban troops in 1975
"tore the fabric of reciprocal restraint
between the United States and the
Soviet Union in the developing world."
A COMMENT in the Nairobi Daily
Nation reflected the sentiments of
black Africans everywhere Bush went:
"That means in practical terms the
Namibia issue - thanks to the United
States - will not be solved within the

immediate future, and political in-
stability in that area of Africa will con-
tinue for quite some time to come."
Last weekend, South African Prime
Minister P. W. Botha traveled to Win-
dhoek, the capital of South-West Africa,
for talks with leaders of the local gov-
ernment assembly, which has been
granted limited internal powers by
South Africa.. I
Botha extended the life of the Assem-
bly until February. He said if there was
no international settlement by then,
South Africa would have to decide
whether to call for elections by the one
million residents, 70,000 of whom are
white.
SUCH ELECTIONS could be for
another parliament only. But they also
might be for a constitutional assembly
paving the way toward independence.
That route would never win inter-
national recognition because it would
bypass the United Nations, the Western
contact group and the black "front
line" states.
Some South African newspapers said
Botha was setting a three-month
deadline for an international solution.
But a Western diplomat said exten-
ding the assembly was a less drastic
alternative than dissolving it and ruling
directly from Pretoria. He said
European governments were not
dismayed by the development.
Peter Kalangula, leader of the
Owambo people who make up about
half of Namibia's population, said he
remained hopeful because U.S.
Assistant Secretary of State Chester
Crocker says negotiations were not
deadlocked.

(Continued from Page 1)
JERNIGAN proposed that, in order
to give SAFE House an incentive to ap-
proach other local governments for
financial support, Ann Arbor allocate
an amount that is 30 percent of funds
given by other governments, to a total
of $10,000.,
Added to an approved direct grant of
$7,750, that would make Ann Arbor's
total contribution $17,750, provided
SAFE House can persuade other
government units to donate more than
$33,000 before the end of June 1983.
Stephanie Vail of SAFE House said
the planning board of the center is
"looking into additional funding sour-
ces." She said the facility has been hurt
recently because the federal VISTA
program, which paid the salaries of six
of their employees, is being phased out.
"THIS MONEY from Ann Arbor will
pay for one employee until the end of
June," Vail said. She added that
despite the federal cutbacks, SAFE
House will "maintain our service
level."
In the past few monthsthe demand
for the organizations services has
grown dramatically, Vail said. "SAFE
House is the only shelter in Washtenaw
County for victims of domestic viol-
ence," she said.
Council also voted to support two
senior citizens transportation
programs. One will enable seniors to
continue taking the Ann Arbor Com-
munity Center bus to the center on
Tuesdays and Wednesdays, and the
other will establish a subsidized taxi
service for needy seniors.

CHESBROUGH, one of the coun
cilmembers who developed the,
proposal, said the need forsupport'of
senior citizen transportation is in-,
creasing as federal grants are cut.
"The city of Ann Arbor has to be in the
transportation business," she said,
"There's no way out of it.
More than 20 cenior citizens fron
Burns Park Senior Citizen Complex at-
tended the meeting. The seniors spoke
in favor of the plan to fund the Con-
munity Center bus, but had reser-
vations about the taxi system. Some
said they were afraid that taxi drivers
don't understand the needs of seniors.;
Virginia Johansen (R-Third Ward)
said she thought the taxi program
would be valuable, because it would
provide "seven day a week service. W.-
are, of course, concerned that the cabs
will be reliable," she said.
Johansen suggested that perhaps the
participating cabbies could be trained
to understand the needs of senior
citizens.

EAST LANSING (UPI) - Michigan
State University has applied to the state
for permission to burn hazardous waste
chemicals, including materials with
low levels of radioactivity.
Involved are nonchlorinated com-
pounds from MSU research
laboratories, primarily toluene and
xylene.

An MSU spokesman called incin-
ceration the "cheaper" and "more en-
vironmentally responsible" means of
handling the wastes. He said the
amounttof radioactivity to be emitted
from the incinerator has been
estimated at one three-millionth of the
safe level set by the federal gover-
nment.
