politicians were named in recall
petitions filed by a former University
State Rep. Perry Bullard (D-Ann Ar-
bor) and House Speaker Gary Owen (D-
Ypsilanti) yesterday joined Governor
James Blanchard and several other
elected officials as the targets of this
r-' year's recall drives.
The effort to recall Blanchard failed
this summer because supporters of the
movement fell short of the signatures
required by law to place a recall vote on
the state ballot.
Former industrial engineering
student John Mitchell yesterday
received approval from the Washtenaw
County Election Committee for the

of signatures necessary to qualify for
special recall elections.
Mitchell said he expects to be
required to draw 8,000 signatures
within the Constitutionally-mandated
90-day time limit which would force a
special election.
The one-sentence petitions for each
representative ask for a recall election
because."he voted to raise the state in-

In a telephone interview last night,
Bullard said he was confident the recall
effort would not succeed, but expressed
concern with the recall fever which
swept Michigan this summer and ap-
parently is continuing. Owen could not
be reached for comment.
"The whole (recall) approach is an
abuse of the legislative process,"
Bullard said, adding that the legislative
recalls are intended for officials who
commit illegal acts.
"It fizzled out with the governor, and'
I'm sure it will not go in Ann Arbor and
other areas where people recognize the
need for taxes for education and human
services," he said.

special election was estimated to be
$50,000, Bullard said, adding that an
Ann Arbor election would probably cost
about the same.
Localities such as Washtenaw County
would have to pay for the elections, but
it is not clear whether or not they would
be reimbursed by the state.
Bullard said he does not know of any
state policy for reimbursing special
elections, so the county could be left
paying the bill.
"This is an attack on the represen-
tative process," Bullard said. "We
could have a recall every time the
legislature votes on a sensitive issue."
Bullard said he was "very

votes 10-0
to approve
Tally Hail
Ann Arbor City Council last night voted
10-0 with one abstention to approve con-
struction of Tally Hall, ending two
years of debate over the project.
Councilmember Larry Hunter (D-1st
Ward) abstained from the vote which
clears the way for construction of the
six-story, $9 million-plus, parking and
retail structure on the corner of E.
Washington and S. Division.
THE BUILDING will provide parking
on the top five floors, and offer ground-
floor space to ethnic restaurants.
Councilmember Lowell Peterson (D-
2nd Ward) said he was pleased with the
updated plan, under which he said "the
city will have more control over the
property" than under the original
proposal to construct a housing struc-
ture on the site.
"At least we didn't get stuck with a
pig-in-a-poke," Peterson said.
In other city action, the council
unanimously approved a four-and one-
half percent raise for city ad-
ministrator Godfrey Collins, increasing
his salary to $57,000.

The most successful political and social satire to hit the

campus sororities. More than 1000 women showed up for
Sunday's pre-rush mass meeting, up from 889 a year ago,
according to Maggie Katz, president of the Panhellenic
Association. In 1979, only about 700 women went through
the semi-annual ritual. Katz attributes the growth of in-1
terest in the Greek system to students' need for a "sense of
belonging" that they can't achieve simply by attending
classes. "This was a growth that we had not anticipated,
but I'm not really surprised. Belonging to an organization
has become much more desirable at a school of this size,"
she said.
