RAIN STOPPED Friday and the

"People are out cleaning up and

"There's a very hearty breed of

DETROIT (AP) - The United Auto
Workers union said last night it had
authorized 13 of its locals to strike
General Motors Corp. at midnight over
local issues and would continue to
bargain on a national contract.
UAW President Owen Bieber and
chief bargainer Donald Ephlin said in a
joint statement that "the failure to
reach agreements at the local level at
some locations has made local strikes
unavoidable at 13 GM facilities."

treasurer of UAW local 654 in Vany

Ozone House- counsels more black youths

In 1970, 2 percent of the runaway youths who sought
help from Ann Arbor's Ozone House were black.
In 1984, although the number of clients hadn't
changed, 25 percent of the runaways were black.
"VIRTUALLY all the (media) attention has
focused on white youths," according to Peter Ways,
training and volunteer coordinator for Ozone House.
"Running away and homelessness are problems that
concern the black community."
Ozone House is a 16-year-old agency which offers
counseling and shelter to runaway and homeless
youths. The rise in the number of black runaways has
led Ways to begin recruiting more black volunteers.
Reasons for the increase in blacks seeking help
from Ozone House include the facility's outreach
programs, its well-established reputation in the
community and a rise in the number of blacks living

in the Ann Arbor-Ypsilanti area.
WASHTENAW County's black population rose 58.9
percent from 1970 to 1980, and while Ann Arbor's
population grew 8 percent the black population rose
50 percent. In Ypsilanti, which accounts for some 30
percent of the Ozone House clients, the black
population rose 22.9 percent despite an 18.6 percent
drop in the town's total population.
These increases have been accompanied by a
change in the socio-economic composition of blacks.
According to the 1980 census, there are no longer any
all-white neighborhoods in Ann Arbor. Only 74 black
families in the county reported incomes over $25,000
in 1970, but over 1,000 black families inthe 1980 census
reported incomes over $35,000. At the same time, the
number of black families with incomes below the
poverty level rose 26 percent.
Although Ozone House does not compile economic

information on its youth, Ways said people of all
socio-economic levels use the facility. Despite the
lack of data, Ways and information coordinator Cub-
ba Reese blame the recent downswing in the
economy for an increase in domestic problems which
in turn leads to adolescent runaways.
Blacks tend to be the hardest hit during rough
economic times, and Cubba said blacks have recently
reported more problems with "independent living,
pregnancy, (and) siblings who physically abuse
them" than whites.
NATIONALLY, a Department of Health and
Human Services study reported that the number of
youths nationally seeking counselling at facilities like
Ozone House rose 20 percent from 1978 to 1981. This
rise consisted of a 4 percent drop in whites (from 74 to
70 percent) and a three percentage point rise in the
