City Council approves Village
Corner renovation plans

The Ann Arbor City Council
unanimously approved renovation
plans for the Bagel Factory and
Village Corner at last night's meeting.
The Bagel Factory plans to add a
glassed-in seating area, according to
owner Dave Solo. Construction will
begin "right after the football
season," said Solo.
"We've generated a substantial deli

VILLAGE Corner will be ap-
proximately doubled in floor size and
a second story will be added, with a

third story depending on whether a
tenant can be found for it according to
architect Terry Alexander.
Councilman Lowell Peterson (D-
First Ward) questioned Alexander if
the "high-tech" appearance of the
planned facade indicated a chane in
the unique "funkiness" of Village
Alexander said though the building
will be totally different, "the way
people are dealt with will be the
MAYOR ED Pierce supported the
site plans but admitted he thinks "the
ambience is terrible in there."

Alexander said "Village Corner is a
small neighborhood grocery store,
it needs increased space to display
stuff and increase lighting."
In other action, Jeannette Mid-
dletop (R-Third Ward) asked City
Administrator Godfrey Collins "why
every year as students come back do
we start road repairs?" In reference
to Hill and Huron streets. "It is an
embarrassment to the city of Ann Ar-
bor ... people ask and I don't have a
good answer."
City Administrator Godfrey Collins
had no answer, but agreed to look into
the matter.

ago as a sign of U.S. displeasure with
the situation in South Africa.
Speaking from his Oval Office desk,
Reagan said his adoption of a course
of action he had resisted for more
than four years was not a change in
policy, but an overture for Congress
and the American people to "join
together behind a common program."
In Europe, Britain told its European
Common Market partners that it
would oppose any economic sanctions
against South Africa, even though
President Reagan announced several
steps yesterday to put pressure on the
white minority government.
The British statement reflected
continuing and deep divisions among
Western nations about the value of
economic sanctions to force change in
South Africa.
Some European nations, as well as
Canada and Australia, have already
imposed sanctions.
BRITISH Foreign Secretary Sir
Geoffrey Howe spoke to reporters as
foreign ministers of the Common
Market nations gathered in Luxem-
bourg for a meeting today to con-
sider joint sanctions aimed at forcing
an end to South Africa's apartheid
"We share the U.S. aim of wanting
to avoid measures that are destruc-
tive to the South African economy,"
Howe told reporters. "We therefore
remain opposed to mandatory
economic sanctions."
Pressure is building in Europe,
however, for the Common Market to
take a tougher stance.
In Brussels, a coalition of 13 anti-
apartheid groups from eight Common
Market nations urged the foreign
ministers to adopt strong measures.
