Health plan fine print shows high costs
WASHINGTON (AP) - If you
lie to your health alliance to get a
subsidy under the Clinton health plan,
it could cost you $2,000.
Cigar smokers would have to pay
almost four cents more for each sto-
gie they buy, and the price of a 1.2-
ounce tin of smokeless tobacco would
jump by almost $1.
The nation's elderly would pay
$11 more a month for Medicare's
new drug benefits, and the wealthiest
among them would have their Medi-
care premiums tripled.
Medicaid patients on welfare
would pay $1 to get aprescription and
$2 to go to the doctor under the plan.
Those are among the wealth of
details nestled in the fine print of
PresidentClinton's 1,342-page Health
Many features of the sweeping
proposal for restructuring the $900
billion U.S. health system have been
known and widely discussed for
weeks. Clinton's proposed 75-cent

tax increase on cigarettes. The cur-
rent 24-cent federal excise tax on each
pack would climb to 99 cents on Oct.
Clinton's health reforms would
exact aprice from every other form of
tobacco, too. Small cigars would be
hit with a 3.9-cent levy.
Big, fancy cigars would be taxed
at up to 12.4 cents apiece.
There would be a 35-fold increase
in the tax on smokeless tobacco. The
2.7-cent tax on those 1.2-ounce tins
would climb to 96.4 cents.
Roll-your-own tobacco would be
taxed for the first time (at $12.50 a
pound), and higher levies would be
slapped on pipe tobacco and cigarette

DETROIT (AP)-The number of
fires on Devil's Night has dwindled
in recent years, but the city isn't tak-
ing any chances. Residents are reAdy
to mobilize in full force Saturday to
keep Detroit from going up in smoke.
Between 30,000and40,000 people
are expected to hit the streets, includ-
ing city workers in marked vehicles,
neighborhood patrols and mayoral
The city is trying to prevent a
repeat of 1984, when 297 fires were
reported on Devil's Night, the night
before Halloween. The city reported
167 fires over the three-day period
last year, and 156 fires in 1991.
"We've been doing this so long
it's second nature," said Ed King,
deputy director of Detroit's Neigh-
borhood City Hall program
The prevention effort will start
tonight and continue through Hal-
loween on Sunday. Temperatures in
the 40s and a chance of scattered
snow showers tomorrow night could
keep many people off the streets.
for Devil's Night
There's alsoacurfew to keep those 18
and under off the streets from 6 p.m.
Saturday to 6 am. Sunday.
The effort has even drawn corpo-
rate sponsorship this year, with City
ManagementCorp. donating $20,000
to city arson prevention programs.
Kentucky Fried Chicken and
McDonald's will offer free refresh-
ments to citizen patrols and Ameritech
is giving key mayoral appointees free
use of cellular phones on the streets.
"It almost becomes a celebration,"
said Bob Berg, spokesperson for
Mayor Coleman Young.
About 6,000 residents have also
pledged to keep an eye on abandoned
homes in their neighborhoods. The
houses are marked with posters that
say: "This House is Watched ... Get
Mad, Report Devil's Night Arson."
Ray Chapman is one of those
people watching out for his street.
Chapman said he spent the summer
sprucing up his home, and he's not
about to watch his efforts go up in
flames. On Wednesday, he boarded
up a vacant house near his home.
"The owner got everything out of
the house a few months ago and left it
for scavengers," he said. "If I protect
this house, I protect my own hind end.
If this one goes up, so will mine."

of Ann Arbor, described the dual fil-
ings as "a legal shell game."
The first suit, filed in the Court of
Claims, names only the Board of Re-
gents as the defendant. The second
suit names the regents as well as three
professors from the department of
political science - Arlene
Saxonhouse, David Singer and Will-
iam Zimmerman. The Courtof Claims
will decide if it will hear the first
lawsuit or assign the case to Circuit
Court Judge Melinda Morris, who
will adjudicate the second suit.
Among Crystal's allegations are
that Saxonhouse violated the estab-
lished procedures set up for tenure
review, attempted to cover up allega-
tions of sexual misconduct and inten-
tionally misled supporters of Crystal's
Crystal also alleged Saxonhouse
violated departmental guidelines by
appointing Zimmerman to Crystal's
tenure review committee despite alle-
gations of sexual misconduct against
him. This appointment is a direct vio-
lation of stated department guidelines.
In addition, Crystal claimed the
University intentionally misinformed
her concerning federal and state poli-
cies on pregnancy leave. She believes
the department denied her tenure to
retaliate for her insistence on the
University's adherence to pregnancy
guidelines in 1989.
After she was denied tenure in
February, Crystal filed an internal
grievance with the University. She
said five months after the grievance
was filed, the University had nottaken
steps to address her complaints.
"The main intent of (internal griev-
ance process) is to tie people up in a
process that they can never win," she
The University disputes Crystal's
claims that tenure process was not
"She did not meet tenure require-
ments for one of the top five political
science departments in the nation,"
said Lisa Baker, director of public
affairs for the University.
It is uncertain if either court will
allow Crystal to act as a representa-
tive for all pregnant women at the
University and/or all women in the
department of political science.
Cahill said he is considering ask-
ing for involvement from the Ameri-
can Civil Liberties Union for help in
