Guerrillas Kill French Legionnaire
While Boarding Ship Going Home
PORT SAID, Egypt OP ) - Guerrillas swung back to the attack on
departing British-French forces in Port Said yesterday, killing a
French Foreign Legionnaire as he boarded ship.
Legionnaires rushed back ashore from a tank landing ship, flushed
out a sniper hideaway and arrested three guerrillas. The legionnaire
was the first of the French forces killed this way.
The sniper's rifle shot broke a calm prevailing after a weekend
of bloodshed touched off by the ambush slaying of a British officer.
British tanks and troops attacked the Arab slum quarter, a guerrilla

The Ann Arbor City Council last
night voted unanimously to place
six capital improvement bond is-
sue proposals totaling $3,795,000
on the Feb. 18 municipal ballot.
These six proposals are part of
a larger capital improvements pro-
gram boasting projected totals of
$12,400,000 on a six-year basis
and approximately $9,700,000 on
a three-year financing basis.
The balance of the program is
expected to be financed from other
revenue sources such as parking,
or utility incomes and would not
affect individual property taxes.
Most Important Problem
Mayor William E. Brown Jr.
called passage of the resolution
placing the question on the ballot
"one of the most important prob-
lems passed on by the the Coun-
cil since I've been mayor.
Largest of the projected bond-
ing propositions calls for the is-
suance of not more than $1,895,-
000 worth of general obligation
bonds for the construction and
equipment of a new city hall. The
appropriation would include funds
for the purchase of land, although
no particular site has been discus-
sed as yet.
The present city hall-police
headquarters has been the object
of controversy for several years,
having been partially remodeled
several times to make room for
the expanded city administration.
The five other proposals include
plans for an outdoor swimming
pool at Veterans Memorial Park
-requiring $300,000, expansion of
parks and recreation facilities-
$500,000, additional storm sewers
-$600,000, sanitary land fill and
refuse disposal-$300,000 and con-
struction of a new fire station-
The council also heard a report
from Councilman Russell Burns
concerning the Union's Student-
attended by Burns and City Ad-
ministrator Guy C. Larcom Jr. As
a result of the conference Burns
asked council members to "think
about" ways in which outside fi-
nancial interests could be persuad-
ed to develop taxable housing for
University married students.
Burns said he had not fully un-
derstood the seriousness of the
married students' housing problem
until he attended the conference.

Gasoline Rationing . .
LONDON - Britain's first day
of "Suez" gasoline rationing left
some city streets as deserted, as a
village lane yesterday.
It brought strange turn-of-the-
century vehicles out of hiding.
Thousands of Britons left their
cars in garages and turned to
crowded public transport systems
to get to work.
Private motorists obviously were
saving their basic ration coupons
-good for sufficient gasoline to
travel 200 miles a month - for
their most essential journeys.
U.S. Challenges, Russia

WASHINGTON (R') -- The State Department challenged Russia
yesterday to allow United Nations observers inside Iungary to de-

"stimulated from the outside."
Press officer Lincoln White said the Hungarian government "is
obviously under control pf the Soviet Union" and that with a UN
inspection "the answer to who stimulated whom would become very

Flu Innoculation Program
Disappointing, Beckett Saysj

Though the polio innoculation program has been doing very well,
the results of the flu program have been disappointing, according to
Dr. Morley Beckett, Director of Health Service.
An estimated 2700 polio shots have been given to University
students since the beginning of the school year, with between 1200 to
1500 more innoculations expected. For this same period, only a few
more than 100 influenza shots,;
have been given.
