Amtrak officials announced yesterday
the opening of a new rail link from
Detroit to Toledo that would connect

..id the new run would extend the
existing "St. Clair" run from Chicago
to \etroit. "The new train will be
known as the 'Lake Cities Turboliner,"'
he said. "It will embark on its
inaugural run August 3."
Jung Halee, the Chicago-Toledo run is
one of several new lines connecting
major cities, and was implemented as a
result of a recent study by the Depar-
tment of Transportation and Amtrak.
"The study was directed by
Congress," Halee explained, "to iden-
tify cities of two or more that could be
profitably paired." Halee said the goal
of Amtrak is to provide direct and
frequent service to and from areas that
produce high volumes of traffic.
According to an Amtrak spokesman,
a rise in passenger rail traffic in Ann
Arbor has produced a need. for a new,
larger train depot.
LAST APRIL, AN Ann Arbor Depot
Task Force identified four development
schemes that would improve rail
passenger services.
All improvements would be located
near the present facility to the west of
the Broadway St. bridge on either side
of the tracks. The task force recom-
mended the proposed depot be con-
structed to allow for expansion and the
possible inclusion of Greyhound and
SEMTA bus facilities.

is the problem of Selective Service."
IN MANCHESTER, Postmaster Marvin Kirk said,
"We've had no trouble (with registration). We've
been getting seven to 10 people coming in every day,
and we estimated at the beginning that we would
handle about 100 people in the two-week period."
Local anti-registration supporters have established
draft counseling offices to serve men who are un-
decided on whether they should register. "It looked
like fewer people came in this week than last week,"
said Suzanne Day, clerk for the Ann Arbor Friends
Meeting, which operated a draft counseling office on
East Liberty Street during the two weeks of
"However, this may be a result of the younger age
group registering," Day continued. "The older
fellows may have thought about it more and decided
to do more research."
AT LEAST ONE person registering yesterday said
his job kept him from registering earlier. "It wasn't a
difficult decision for me to make," said Eastern
Michigan University student Dean Bowerback. I just

thought about the penalties and decided I might as
well register.
According to an article appearing in yesterday's
New York Times, a top Selective Service official said
his office would be "serious about enforcing the law"
against young men who failed to register.
Selective Service Director Bernard Rostker said,
"The kid who throws down the gauntlet to the gover-
nment will be prosecuted."
THE MAXIMUM PENALTY for those men who fail
to register is a $10,000 fine and five years in jail. -
But according to a handbook distributed by the
National Resistance Committee, a leading anti-
registration group, "Of those who are not discovered
(not to have registered) most will simply be asked to
register; few will be prosecuted."
Rostker also said it would take about 90 days from
today to determine how many men failed to sign up.
For those who didn't register during the past two
weeks, it is still possible to do so. Richards said the
post office will continue to carry registration forms
"until further notice."

TEU, AA A negotiations
break down once again

Negotiations between striking bus drivers and transit of-
ficials broke down for the third time in four weeks yesterday
as AATA's Board of Directors rejected a union request for
concessions in five crucial areas.
"The Board recognizes that its rejection of the union's
proposal will rea'firm the status of impasse reached in the
collective bargaining process," AATA said in a written
statement released yesterday.
BUT AATA DIRECTOR Richard Simonetta said that in the
interest of getting the buses back on the streets, the board in-
vited strikers back to work under the conditions of AATA's
final offer presented the union last week.
Members of the Transportation Employees Union (TEU)

refused to ratify the final offer last Sunday by a vote of 112-18.
Under the AATA back-to-work proposal, buses would be
back in service by Monday.
IF UNION MEMBERS vote to reject AATA's offer,
Simonetta said the management bargaining unit would par-
ticipate in no new bargaining talks until the union was ready
to make some concessions.
Union Vice-President Shelly Ettinger said - the union
position all along has been, "no contract, no work.
"We do not have a contract," she said. "We have a set of
rules imposed by the management that we're supposed to
work under."
