Phone rates to go up an
average of $4 a month
By ADAM WIENER
WITH WIRE REPORTS
Although rumors that phone bills
might double or triple next year are un-
founded. Projections released by
Michigan Bell recently show that the
average student will be handing Ma
Bell an extra $4 per month during 1984.
The increase, which will vary depen-
ding on an individual's long distance
use, comes in the wake of changes or-
dered by the Federal Communications
Commission to keep phone companies
competititve after the American
Telephone & Telegraph breaks up Jan.

The FCC has ordered all phone com-
panies to phase out subsidies of local
service which have been provided by
inflating long distance rates. Tran-
slated into phone bills for the average
customer, that means a significant
decrease in long distance charges but
an increase in "access" charges and
costlier local phone calls.
ALTHOUGH THE cost of long distan-
ce calls within the state will go down an
average of 5 percent, phone company
officials have asked the Michigan
Public Service Commission to approve
a monthly 70-cent access charge to
replace the lost subsidy for local ser-
Michigan Bell has also asked the FCC
to allow an additional $2 access charge
to make up for the local subsidy which
will be lost through decreases in inter
state charges, which will drop as much
as 15 percent next year.
If both state and federal authorities
approve the changes, the new long
distance rates and access charges
should begin showing up on monthly
bills after Jan. 1.
ADDED TO rate increases approved
last May, which customers already are
paying, the changes will push the
average bill of $36.34 to $40.35.
"We think that should be reassuring
to the vast majority of our customers,
particularly those who feared their bills
would double or triple next year," said
Donald Lambe, Michigan Bell's
assistant vice president for marketing.
Students who frequently make calls
to areas more than 30 miles away may
even see a reduction in their monthly
bills, Lambe said.
OFFICIALS said the accesscharges
are not meant to increase Michigan
Bell's income. "They simply shift
charges from long distance service,
which has been priced artificially high,
to local service, which has been priced
artificially low," he said.
When the AT&T break-up becomes
official in 1984, Michigan Bell will join
five other midwest phone companies to
become Ameritech, which will control
local service for the six areas and
retain ownership of all pay telephones.
One division following the break-up
will continue to be known as AT&T.
That company will retain control over
long distance services and will continue
to own private telephones.

A hospital in Gainsville, Florida
yesterday angrily denied it "dumped"

Hunt said that search ended in San

MacDonald was taken to San Fran-

The disease's main victims have been

The plight of AIDS victims and the

leaders warned of possible secession
and civil war yesterday as thousands of
Manila slum dwellers roared "Marcos
Resign!" at an anti-government rally.
Opposition leader Rene Espina
lashed out at Vice President George
Bush saying he "put his foot in his
mouth" by defending Philippines
President Ferdinand Marcos against
accusations of political assassination.
Anti-government protesters pressed
demonstrations for the fourth straight
day and renewed accusations that Mar-

The blast at Bush delivered by
Espina, leader of the United Nationalist
Democratic Organization, was made in
response to the American vice
president's remarks Thursday that
Filipinos were accusing Marcos of the

Bush also compared Marcos to the
late Shah of Iran, implying that
criticism of the Iranian monarch's
human rights record led to the rise of
the Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini and
even worse human rights violations.
Yesterday's demonstrations against
Marcos' 18-year rule was attended by
about 5,000 people in Manila's tough
Tondo slum neighborhood.
Aquino's widow, Corazon, was the
main speaker at the rally, which was
watched over by 200 riot police who
paced nervously as the crowd chanted
"Marcos resign, Marcos resign,"
