City board
split on
salary.
increase
decision

By RACHEL GOTTLIEB
The Ann Arbor City Compensation
Board split by a vote of 3-3 yesterday
on whether to raise the salaries of the
mayor and the city council members.
It was the second time in three
weeks that the board met and was
unable to reach a decision on the
issue.
LIKE THE tie vote three weeksago,
yesterday's deadlock might have
been broken if the seventh board
member, Ted Heusel, had been
present.
When contacted yesterday, Heusel
said he thought the meeting was
scheduled for tomorrow night. He

said, however, that he did not know
how he would have voted on the salary
increase.
If passed, the proposal would raise
the mayor's salary form $10,750 to
$15,750, while councilmembers would
received a $1,500 increase, from $5,500
to $7,000. The board which sets the
salaries of the mayor and council
every 2 years will meet again to
discuss the proposal on Oct. 29.
ROGER Bertoi, chairman of the
board, voted against the raise.
"I don't think the issues have
changed much. As the city has grown,
so has the bureaucratic structure,"
Bertoi said.

The councilmembers are putting in
the same number of hours they did 20
years ago."
HE ALSO attacked the nature of the
board, saying, "I don't like this com-
mission. I think its a smoke screen for
elected officials to hide behind. They
should set their own salaries.''
Board member Jack Garris voted in
favor of the raise.
"The Councilmembers are not
figureheads - they really do their
jobs," Garris said. "By an increase,
we're trying to pay the people for

Retirees oppose state
divestment proposal

. Ex-SLS head urges students to fight code

(Continued from Page 1)
OPPONENTS of the code, however,
lhave attacked it as vague, uncon-
stitutional, and beyond the authority
of the University to enforce.
Rose, who has been active in anti-
code activity for several years, told
USA last night that the code's
primary purpose is to "stifle
disobedience and increase admin-
* strative control over students."
He listed several specific problems;
with the current code including what
he sees as limited rights of counsel for

defendants, selective prosecution
which works in favor of the Univer-
sity, and a lack of subpoena power
which prevents the University from
forcing witnesses to testify.
IN ADDITION, Rose said, the ad-
ministration's code contains "terrible"
punishments for crimes in some
cases."
"It's a kangaroo court and it won't
work," Rose said. "It defects are
fatal."
He gave five ways in which the

existing state and local legal system
can address the crimes that a code
would attempt to cover - issuing of
injunctions, evictions from on and off-
campus housing, filing of civil and
criminal suits by the University
against suspects, and commitment of
unbalanced suspects to mental
hospitals.
Rose then recited a list of
"manipulative devices" he says the
University administration uses to win
support for the code. The primary

devices for University coercion in-
clude, he said, using the already ex-
pressed support of groups within the
University to win over other groups,
trying to negotiate with weak student
leaders, and waiting until student
resistance melts away before attem-
pting to enforce a code.
Rose urged MSA to actively resist
the code, and said it "should be
resisted by all students with every
energy."

LANSING, Mich. (UPI) - Retired
Public employees yesterday said'
legislation to phase out nearly $3'
billion in pension fund investments in
-firms operating in South Africa puts
the burden of that country's social ills
on their shoulders.
However, backers of the bills
challenged the Legislature to become
involved in a worldwide movement to
end South Africa's system of racial
division.1
"This fund, we would like to em-
phasize, belongs to the members,"
said Dorothy Eubank, representing
the Michigan Association of Retired
School Personnel. She said the bills
would be "placing a tremendous bur-,
den" on retired teachers. "Why
should we be singled out to help South
Africa in this fashion?" she asked.
However, Rep. Perry Bullard, the
Ann Arbor Democrat sponsoring one,
of the bills, said retirees would "ab-;

solutely not" lose money from the
divestment. He said no other pension
which has divested has lost money.
The comments came at a public
hearing of the House Civil Rights
Committee, which is considering two
bills to force the State Employees
Retirement System, the Public School
Employees' Retirement System and
the Legislative Retirement System to
sell within five years stock in com-
panies doing business in South Africa.
Rep. Virgil Smith, (D-Detroit) the
other sponsor, said South Africa's
blacks are forced to work for "slave
wages" and are without any form of
participation in the South African
system.
The Rev. Robert Eckert of the
Mount Zion African Methodist
Episcopal Church in Battle Creek told
the panel his father, a black South
African, still makes only $1,200 a year
after 40 years of work.

Beth Meyerson said she wants to

tims.

Jim Femdelman, one of five male
facilitators, said he got involved in the

that the University had acted in an
arbitrary and capricious manner
because it failed to follow its usual
practice of allowing students to retake
the examination.
Upon Ewing's victory, the Univer-
sity took the case to the Supreme
Court. The University legal brief,
states that in its decision, the appeals
court assumes that the University
violated Ewing's constitutional right
to due process by failing to follow its
own rule of allowing students to
retake the test. The brief also states
that the appeals court's decision con-
tradicts Supreme Court rulings in
similar cases.

According to Roderick Daane, at-
torney for the Univerity, "It was a
very spirited session. The justices
asked many questions of both sides."
The session took 60 minutes, which is
the maximum amount of time alloted
for each case, he said.
Daane said he's "optimistic" that
the court will decide in the Univer-
sity's favor. A decision is expected in
late January, he said.
Daane said that if Ewing wins the
case the decision would mark a
radical departure from the judicial
system's traditional tendency to avoid
tampering with the autonomy of
universities.
