Drivers gripe, but city can justify parking tickets

First ina two-part series
"The undersigned officer, based
on personal investigation, has
reason to believe that the vehicle
described below, on the date noted
below, was parked in violation of
the Ann Arbor City Code or the
regulations of the University of
Michigan. "
- City Parking Violations Ticket

After circling the block in downtown
Ann Arbor, desperately searching for
a place to park, the driver not only
became anxious but frustrated. When
he did find a space, it was too hard to
stop in the middle of traffic. This
meant circling the block again. By
that time the space was taken.
Finally finding a spot, he popped a
quarter into the meter, planning on
returning in an hour. His errand took
longer than expected and when he

returned, there was an expired meter ton, a University student. Borton

Council makes progress
1n code discussions

The University Council made
significant strides in its discussions
about a code of non-academic conduct
yesterday agreeing on a direction to
follow in its version of the campus
Under an approach they agreed to
try, the council would handle violent
crimes through a central office, while
all other transgressions would be
dealt with by other University offices
- for example, by the Office of
Housing for non-violent crimes taking
place in dormitories.
WORKING ON an idea brought up
at last week's meeting, the council
also rejected the idea of "recreating
the wheel," or drawing up all the rules
in the University. Instead, the council
plans to draw up "rules for rules" asa
guide for the offices in examining
their rules and procedures, said
Social Work Prof. Ann Hartman.
Future councils, she said, should ser-

ve as a rule-reviewing committee
where members of the University
community can protest unfair
Chairman Lee Winkelman, one of
three student representatives on the
council, called the agreement an ef-
fort to "get something down on
The nine-member panel, charged
by the administration to come up with
a code to replace the one released by
the administration last fall which
aroused student protests, has worked
on the issue for almost seven months.
Their work has been hampered by

member, urged the council to decide
finally what direction it would take.

U.S. swaps spies with Germans

BERLIN (UPI) - The United States traded four alleged
East Bloc spies yesterday for 25 accused Western agents
in a dramatic mid-afternoon spy swap on the same bridge
where U-2 pilot Francis Gary Powers was freed in 1962.
The East-West spy exchange - the biggest ever in post-
World War II Europe - took place on Glienicke Bridge
that links the American-occupied sector of West Berlin to
East Germany.
RICHARD BURT, U.S. ambassador-designate to West
Germany, looked on as 23 of the alleged Western spies

walked across the bridge from East Germany and the four
accused East bloc spies got out of a grey U.S. military van
to cross the bridge in the other direction.
The East bloc released 25 people imprisoned as Western
spies, but two chose to stay in East Germany.
The two "wished to remain behind out of concern for
personal business and the welfare of family members," a
U.S. official said, adding they will be allowed to leave
within two weeks if they choose. The others were over-
joyed at their freedom, he said.
