.crase participation in the Democratic
,process," she said.
In discussing the relationship be-
tween the University and the city,
"Sheldon said she is pleased the Uni-
versityisfinally sending "higher-:level
officials" to joint city-University corn-
mitutee meetings.
Because the state constitution
grants the University, which occu-
pies half the land in Ann Arbor, an
exemption from property taxes, the
city loses a major source of revenue.

-Earlier this year, the city agreed to
give the University access to a new
parking lot in exchange for an ease-
ment on Fuller Road to save a grove
of oak tree.
"All things considered,!I think the
city made out like a bandit," she said.
Sheldon admitted that with money
tightat the state level, competition for
government dollars is growing.
"It is difficult when the city is at
times fighting with the University for
funding," she said.
"(The University) says that they
bring students and money into the
city, but they have to know that we
give a lot back."

Holding her hand out, Sheldon
said she is satisfied with the city's
programs to aid the homeless.
"This has to be a two-way street.
I'm willing to hold out a hand, but if
you're not willing to grab it, then
there is nothing you can do," she said.
Sheldon said she believes many of
the homeless people in Ann Arbor
were students at one time who liked
the city and decided to stay.
Sheldon, whose favorite televi-
sion program is "Murder, She Wrote,"
often attends theatrical productions
in Ann Arbor and at the University. In
period dress, she ushered for the Ann
Arbor civic theater production of

"Oklahoma" last weekend.
She emphasized "what a thill" it
is toube mayor of such a "special" city,
a city somewhat removed from the
rest of the state. Sheldon said she has
no plans for higher office, but added
that her experience as mayor leaves
the door open.
A big Wolverine football fan,
Sheldon, who received a M.A. in
Education from the University, has
been sitting in section 19 for 20 years.
One of her responsibilities is to
conduct weddings, 22 to date, for
$25. Two University students asked
her to conduct their wedding on a fall
Saturday and Sheldon agreed -- as
long as it did not interfere with her
"football schedule."
Sheldon laughed, remembering
that after the Daily endorsed her can-
didacy for mayor last spring, one
member of the Ann Arbor Rotary
Club, a traditionally conservative
group, asked her if she were a "closet
commie." She assured him she was
not.
Brater, who is teaching a writing
class in the University's English de-
partment, said it is too early to judge
what kind of mayor Sheldon will be.
"I do know we are going to need
real leadership if this city is going to
tackle the problems ahead," she said,
noting the possible $10 million bud-
get deficit, if a state plan to cut fund-
ing to municipalities is enacted. City
government, Brater said, is "stagnant."
Nicholas, who represents a dis-
trict that is 60 percent Republican,
has other reservations. He considers
himself a moderate, and questioned
whether Sheldon is really "moder-
ate."
"She's supporting my opponent
who is far-right, especially on social
issues, including abortion," he said.

Despite the optimism, Commu-
nity Resource Coordinator Mark
Bangela said, "Now more than ever,
Ozone House needs community sup-
port~"
Funded by Social Services and the
city of Ann Arbor, Wood said Ozone
House would apply for more founda-
tion grants and increase fund raising.
"We need student organizations to
help us with our bucket drive -- Oct.
29-30," he said. "We would like vari-
ous types of groups to help us by
sponsoring corners throughout the
(University), because Miller House is
a valued part of the community."

TREATMENT

of beams and configurations we can
figure out the best plan of attack,"
said physicist Mary Martel.
Unlike more conventional treat-
ment systems, the Racetrack
Microtron allows doctors to deliver a
higher energy level of radiation. The
racetrack is only the size of a pool
table, but two rooms of computer and
electronic equipment are required to
run the machine.
Electrons are raced around a cir-
cular track with microwaves several
times, during which they pass through
a magnetic field. This process allows
the electrons to reach their higher
level of energy. The radiation treat-
ment, which takes 10-15 minutes, is
then delivered to patients in one of
two adjoining treatment rooms that
look as if they should be on the Starship
Enterprise.
The treatment rooms are enclosed
by walls and doors made out of foot-
thick reinforced lead and polystyrene
designed to absorb the racetrack's
neutron production and prevent acci-
dental exposure to radiation. Radia-
tion is then delivered through a multi-
leaf columnater, which conforms the
radioactive beam to the size of the
tumor.
Martel said the department treats
an average of 15 patients per week
with the advanced technology. Physi-
cians determine which patients are
best suited for the experimental tech-
nique.
"We don't want to jump into this
program," saidMark Haiman, admin-
istrative director for Radiation

'Through different
arrangements of beams
and configurations we*
can figure out the best
plan of attack.'

As an added incentive to partici-
pate in the Racetrack Microtron re-@
search, the University was given a
five-year grant from the National
Cancer Institute. The estimated
$850,00 will be used to study the
machine's effectiveness on various
types of cancerous tumors.
Only one other American hospi.-
tal, Sloan-Kettering Memorial Hos-
pital in New York, owns a Racetrack
Microtron.
Only two other hospitals wrd
wide, both in the Netherlands, em-
ploy this new technology.
Halman said while the Sloan-
Kettering Hospital uses its racetrack
for the exclusive treatment of pros-
tate cancer, the University uses the
technology to treat tumors in various
parts of the body, including the liver,
lung and brain cancer.
Halnman added it will be at leastO
five years before evidence of the
machine's effectiveness can be evalu-
ated. However, he stressed that any
negative effects of the treatment
method will be discovered much ear-
lier.
"If people were developing prob-
lems," Halman said, "you would see
acute effects."
