Parking fines may be revoked
Compiled from Associated Press and
United Press International reports
By DOV COHEN b
Local automobile owners who were
ticketed last week for parking on the
wrong side of the street during a snow
emergency may not have to pay the $20
fine doled out by the city's police
Because many drivers complained
they weren't informed of a city or-
dinance prohibiting people from
parking their vehicles on the side of the
street with odd street numbers on odd
days (and likewise on the side of the
street with even street numbers) during
snow emergencies, city council will
vote on a resolution which would nullify
"THE CITY was not prepared to
adequately inform people. Announcing
it through the Ann Arbor News and
-local radio stations is not the best means
of informing people," said council
member James Blow (R-Ward 2), who
strongly supports the resolution which
was proposed by Mayor Louis Belcher.
Fifth ward Democrat Kathy Edrren
also supports the proposal.
"I'd be very surprised if anyone
voted against it," Edgren said. She ad-
ded that there is a strong chance the
board will look at the enforcement and
notification procedures in the towing
ordinance and a "decent chance" that
they will look at the ordinance itself. w
EDGREN suggested distributing
flyers as a way of notification. "We can
look at what they do in other com-
munities," she said.
"I hope to come up with a better way
of notifying people, be it leaflets or
what have you. We must have a long
term solution. Our notice through the
media isn't working," said council
member Lowell Peterson (D-Ward 1).
The problem with giving car owners
more time to move their vehicles, ac-
cording to assistant city administrator,
Allen Burns, is that ,the streets will
remain unplowed for a longer period.
"It's six of one, half dozen of another

from the competition."
MARY BETH Seiler, the campus
Panhellenic advisor agrees that a trend
toward converatism may have
something to do with the increase, out
she said "I think we can take credit for
some of the increase. Also, it's what
fraternities and sororities do - they're
active and visible on campus and are
involved in many worthwhile philan-
According to Walter, IFC is making
at attempt to increase fraternity mem-
bership even more. Nine campus
fraternities are participating in a mid-
winter rush for the first time.
Walter said that he is hoping midwin-
ter rush will increase the pledge total
by 20 to 500.

popularity is attracting new fraternity
and sorority chapters back to campus.
Usually one or two sorority chapters
and two to three fraternity chapters
have been returning to campus in recent
years, Michaels said.
Although there are several ex-
planations for the. Greek system's
comeback, most people tend to agree on
why sororities and fraternities suffered
an interest decline in the late 1960s and
"The whole system was a victim of
the times - there was a lot of political
activism, the war in Vietnam, and anti-
establishment feelings," said Martha
Hahn, a University alumna and a rush
Although fraternities and sororities
were still strong when former Theta
Delta Chi member Thomas Bloomer
graduated in 1969, "There were definite
signs of trouble" in the Greek system at
that time, he said. "People didn't really
think they (fraternities and sororities)
were relevant" when the Greek system
'saw its all time lowest membership in
around 1972 and 1973. "I don't think
fraternities and sororities necessarily
deserved it, but they just went out of
ALTHOUGH GREEKS ARE glad
about the larger membership figures,
increased membership is causing some
problems. Increased popularity of
fraternities and sororities means
tougher competition for limited space.
"We don't have room to place
everyone, which concerns me," Seiler
said. Last term, 226 women did not find
a place in a sorority.
THERE IS NO easy solution to this
problem, said Seiler. I'I don't think it's
reasonable to ask (existing chapters) to
increase their numbers. Many already
have 100, which is quite a group. I'd like
to add new chapters instead of making,
(existing) chapters grow."
However, even adding new chapters-
will not solve everything. New chapters
coming to campus may experience
housing problems. When some
sorority and fraternity chapters disap-
peared from campus in the late '60s and
early '70s, their houses were used for
other purposes. Now new chapters may
have problems regaining living quar-
ters, Seiler said.
"Most, chapters just can't exist
without housing," Seiler said. If new
chapters can't find housing, it may
limit the growth of the Greek system on
COLLEGIATE SOROSIS, a relatively
new campus chapter with 39 members,
is the most recent group to experience
housing difficulties. The sorority recen-
tly petitioned the city's planning com-
mission with a request to buy and
enlarge a one-family house at 903 North
,Lincoln. The house lies in zone R2B,
which is considered a buffer zone bet-
ween campus and residential areas.
The neighborhood consists of Ann Ar-
bor familiesand college students.
There are several fraternities and
sororities in the neighborhood.
The planning commission turned
down the sorority's request for several
reasons, said Wendy Rampson, zoning
coordinator for Ann Arbor. She said the
sorority could bring increased parking
problems to an already crowded
parking area. People in the neigh-
borhood were also opposed to the ad-
dition of a sorority in the area.:
"There's a balance in the neigh-
borhood. People are worried about tip-
ping that balance and ruining the single
family atmosphere," Rampson said.
Collegiate Sorosis plans to submit a
revised request to the planning com-
mittee next month. The new version
leaves more room for parking space
and cuts down on the size of the
proposed addition to the building.

Star Wars will intensify arms
race, Soviet officials warn
MOSCOW - The Kremlin said yesterday that if the United States develops
the Star Wars system it will intensify the arms race because the Soviet
Union would be forced to build weapons powerful enough to defeat it.
"Does the United States think the Soviet Union will sit idle, awaiting the
results of the U.S. 'research'?" Kremlin spokesman Leonid Zamyatin said
"Faced with such dangerousplans, the Soviet Union will do all in its Power to
prevent a U.S. superiority over itself.
"The Soviet Union would have to increase the power of its weapons in
retaliation for the attempts of the United States to get an opportunity to
deliver a nuclear strike with impunity," he said in an article distributed by
the official news agency Tass.
Zamyatin is chief of the Communist Party Central Committee's inter-
national information department and is one of the Kremlin's chief
Tass also quoted Andrei Kokoshin, deputy director of a think tank called
the U.S.A.-Canada Institute, as saying international scientists fear a new
arms race if the United States develops space weapons.
"The other Soviet side, scientists believe, will take steps to further develop
its strategic systems which guarantee it a possibility of hitting a retaliatory
strike," he said.
First Cuban refugees deported
MARIETTA, Ga. - Twenty-three Cubans were bused from a federal
prison to a suburban Atlanta airbase yesterday where a chartered jet waited
to return them to their homeland, the first of 2,700 refugees the Reagan ad-
ministration wants deported.
A three-judge panel of the U.S. 11th Circuit Court of Appeals vacated a
lower court's order earlier yesterday, clearing the way for the first wave of
Most of the refugees were cnvicted in Cuba of crimes ranging from mur-
der to military desertion and have been in prison in Atlanta since their
arrival in the 1980 Mariel boatlift. A few were convicted of crimes in this
country and some have been declared mentally ill, federal officials said.
The Reagan administration signed an agreement in December with Fidel
Castro's regime that allows the deportation of 2,746 Cubans at a rate of 100
per month. In exchange, Cuba will send up to 30,000 legal immigrants a year
to the United States.
S. African gov. charges blacks
with treason, will evict squatters
JOHANNESBURG, South Africa - The white-minority government
charged seven black dissidents with high treason yesterday and said it
would go ahead and evict 60,000 people from a squatters camp near Cape
Town despite riots over the plan.'
In a new outbreak of violence yesterday, police in Seeisoville, 125 miles
southwest of Johannesburg, fired rubber bullets at protesters after a funeral,
killing at least one man.
The dead mourner was the 23rd victim of racial unrest in South Africa in
the last 10 days.
Authorities announced they would pursue the eviction and relocation of
some 60,000 blacks living in a Cape Town squatters camp, where the plan
sparked riots earlier this week that left 18 people dead.
Judge blocks MSU 'X'-film ban
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. - Michigan State University officials violated
the constitutional rights of two student film group operators when they or-
dered them shut down for showing X-rated movies, a federal judge ruled
Attorneys for the American Civil Liberties Union filed suit in U.S. district
Court in Grand Rapids Tuesday, charging the student film groups' first
amendment rights to free speech and assembly had been violated by the
University officials said the groups were shut down because they were
showing inappropriate fare and were operating on a profit-making basis not
permitted under student activity group guidelines.
U.S. District Judge Douglas Hillman issued a preliminary injuction lifting
the- ban, stating the university's actions appeared to violate the First
Economic growth exceeds hopes
WASHINGTON - The economy grew at a robust 4.9 percent rate in the
final three months of the year, far better than originally thought, the gover-
nment said yesterday.
Analysts reviewing the strong rebound in the gross national product, the
broadest measure of the nation's economic health, said it would provide
springboard needed to ensure good growth in the first half of 1985.
However, beyond that point, some economists expressed pessimism about
prospects in the last half of the year.
President Reagan, taking credit for the economy's performance, said the
"harvest of good news sprang from the seeds of new policies for greater
economic freedon... that we planted in our first term."
But Robert Ortner, chief economist at the Commerce Department, said
part of the fourth quarter growth spurt was based on temporary factors
which will not continue.
