A citizens' committee on
rebuilding Ann Arbor's City Hall -
criticized during the last few years
for being too small - voted
Wednesday to make the n e w
structure either a two or three-story
The vote represents a narrowing
of the 31-member committee's
original seven options for renovating
the building. The committee also
voted to create an underground
parking lot on the east side of the
Committee Chair Guy Larcom,
former Ann Arbor city administrator,
said members will finalize details
during next week's meeting. The
committee, which has been meeting
for the last six months, will decide
on parking spaces near the
expansion, cost, and appearance.
The committee will then present
its findings to the City Council for
the final vote, he said.
"We've long outgrown that
building," said City Councilmember
Jeanette Middleton (R-Third Ward).
"It's essential that we get more
In the current City Hall,
Middleton said, "There is no security
anywhere. You can wander through
people's offices, and the whole bit;
people are stuffed in there like
"The people at City Hall need
more space in order to better serve
the voters," said Councilmember Jeff
Epton (D-Second Ward), but added
that "there are a lot more things we
could spend money on" like the
city's solid waste disposal program.
Administrative Assistant Dean
Bowerbank estimated that the new
project would cost $4 million, but
the exact figure will not be set until
a firm takes on the project. The
expansion, he said, would probably
be funded by a voter-approved bond
issue on next April's city ballot.
The bond issue would involve a
raise in local taxes.
Last April, voters defeated a
similar bond issue for $18 million
to finance a seven-story city hall

AD HOC COMMITTEE DISSOLVES
Group joins UCAR to
aid worker relations
By STEPHEN GREGORY
Members of an ad hoc committee
formed last month to discuss the
establishment of a University worker
and student racism review board that
would invstigate racist incidents on
campus, decided yesterday to dissolve
and work under the auspices of the
United Coalition Against Racism.
The ad hoc committee, made of
students and University workers,
formed in response to Black
University employee Mary Clark's
charges that members of t h e
University Building Services
management had harassed her.
Clark has also said repeatedly that
other University maintenance
workers have been harassed but are
too scared of losing their jobs to
make their allegations public.
But UCAR steering committee
member Michael Wilson told group
members that their efforts were
duplicating similar UCAR efforts to
encourage workers to organize
against racism, and that they should
join forces with the mostly student-
Wilson said UCAR h a d
established an outreach committee to
search for ways to form links
between students and workers.
Ad hoc committee member Paul
Carmouche encouraged his group's
members to join the outreach
Among the proposals f or
fostering these bonds were inviting a
worker to join UCAR's steering
committee, sending UCAR members
to worker meetings, and holding
UCAR meeting on Saturday's to
encourage workers to attend.
Members of the ad hoc group
expressed a willingness to join the
outreach group and discussed goals
the committee should work toward.
Ad hoc group member Andrea
Zaferes recommended that the
committee make public statements
indicating UCAR would support
worker struggles like Clark's against
the University during rallies
honoring Martin Luther King Day
Zaferes also suggested that
UCAR encourage students and
workers to attend a mass meeting on
Jan. 19 to discuss the formation of a
racism review board.
Other recommendations include
educating students about working
conditions at the University.
Rajal Patel, another member of
the UCAR steering committee, told
the ad hoc group she hoped UCAR's
efforts to form bridges with workers
will encourage workers to form an
anti-racism group like the Black
Parent Support Group (BPSG).
BPSG formed last October after
Huron High School biology teach
called a group of Black students in
his class "niggers."
Patel said UCAR has formed
links with BPSG and that the two
groups often work together. She said
UCAR members canvassed area
neighborhoods last week to illicit
community support for the parent
In other developments, Clark told
the ad hoc committee that Building
Services management moved her to a
job in C.C. Little Building and
makes her do more work than other
She said she is responsible for
cleaning the building's fifth floor
and doing nightly projects like
thoroughly cleaning laboratories.
"They got me doing work that
maybe hasn't been done in a
month's time," she said.
She also said management has
attempted to splinter unity among
workers by forbidding employees in
East Engineering Building, Clark's
former work place, from listening to
music on the job and blaming
Clark's activites for the ban.
Linda Bolling, Building Services
area supervisor, resposnible for both
East Engineering and C.C. Little,
could not be reached for comment.

STUD Y SPRING IN THE NORTH WOODS
A New Course for Freshman & Sophomore Non-Science Majors
Biology 104, Introduction to the Natural Sciences
Tired of large classes in stuffy lecture halls? Want to live for 4 weeks on the shore of a beautiful
lake in northern Michigan? Want to learn about the native plants and animals of the region?
Looking for meaningful contact with senior faculty?
LOOK NO FURTHER! A new course, to be taught at the University of Michigan Biological Station
in the northern Lower Peninsula, has been designed just for you. In this course, you'll d
science, not just read about it. You'll monitor microclimate, collect plant fossils, learn to identify
birds, attend class on a pontoon boat, and even find out what glaciers have to do with forestry.
You'll interact with senior faculty in small discussion groups, in the field, and even at meals.
This five-credit course for non-science majors will be a "hands-on" introduction to natural
science. Classes in the field and lab will be combined with discussions, readings, and lectures to
give an introduction to ecology, evolutionary biology, and scientific method. A major emphasis
will be consideration of how organisms interact with their environment to grow and reproduce.
The course will be taught over a four-week period (May 14-June 11, 1988) during the spring
half-term, and will be limited to 3 sections of 17 students each. Students and faculty will live- in
cabins at the Biological Station and all meals will be served in the dining hall at the Station.
Tuition will be $490 for Michigan residents and $1360 for non-residents, and all students will
pay a room and board fee of $320.
For more Information, contact:
Dr. James Teed, Biological Station, 2043 Natural Science Bldg., 763-4461
Development of this course is funded by the Provost's Undergraduate Initiatives Fund.
