but complex citywide issues are
dealt with on a case by case basis."
OxBridge Neighborhood Asso-
ciation President Paul Rogers said
Delta Zeta will present "a clear
and unavoidable danger to our chil-
dren and our neighborhood."
Rogers said, "Violations of
parking are all too common in this
part of the city."
Panhellenic Adviser Mary Beth
Seiler said Delta Zeta "should not

be denied access because of a com-
plex citywide issue."
Angell Elementary School
President Nanette Gill asked to
table the issue "to allow enough
time for full exploration of the
safety issues regarding the drive-
way use."
Delta Zeta member Jenny Rip-
kin said, "We are not asking for
just a house. We are asking for our
home."
Intercoopreative Council Presi-
dent Jim Jones spoke in support of
Delta Zeta. He said Washtenaw is

primarily group housing.
Perry Nursery School Board
president Percy Bates stressed the
interest of the school in the fate of
this property. "We have to relocate
because our present building is an
economic liability.'
Perry Nursery School Treasurer
Karen Bolles said the parking lot
currently handles 208 car trips to
and from Washtenaw Avenue a day.
"We do not believe that a sorority
will generate as much traffic."

TAXES
Continued from page 1
middle class.
Bush, like Ronald Reagan, rel-
ishes a reputation as a tax-cutter
flatly opposed to any tax increase.
But just as Reagan signed a dozen
tax increases in his eight years as
president, Bush relented in 1990 and
agreed to higher taxes to reduce the
budget deficit.
The president's proposal shies
away from any general tax increase
but millions would feel the sting
anyway. Among the proposals, and
their five-year costs:
Two million state and local
government employees who have
held their jobs since before April 1,
1986, would be required to pay the
1.45 percent tax that finances Medi-
care hospital insurance. Workers
hired since that date already pay the
tax. All but about 300,000 of the 2
million already are covered by
Medicare because of previous em-
ployment or their spouse's coverage.
The change, which Congress has
repeatedly refused to approve,
would cost workers more than $8
billion, which their employers
would match;
An estimated 100,000 opera-
tors of diesel-powered recreational
boats would begin paying the 20.1-
cent-a-gallon tax on diesel fuel. The
estimated $200 million would fi-
nance repeal of the luxury tax on
yachts costing more than $100,000;
and
The nearly 1,000 credit
unions with assets over $50 million
would be subject to income tax for
the first time, costing them as much
as $2 billion.
Critics say this would penalize
32 million members of those credit
unions. The administration says the
change would be fair because large
credit unions function like full-ser-
vice banks, which pay such taxes.
