A pretrial hearing for murder suspect Ernest R. Bishop
Jr. will be held this morning at 9:30 am. in District Court.
Bishop is charged with the first degree murder of Mar-
garet Ann Phillips, 25, a University graduate student in
sociology and the seventh slain young woman in the Ann
Arbor area in the last two years.
Meanwhile, Ann Arbor Police Chief Walter Krasny denied
reports yesterday that Bishop admitted throwing a gun
received from another man into the Huron River.
Responding to a television report, Krasny asserted, "It's
just not true. I don't know where they got their information,
but it's false."

Both are in the education school.
They have been selected from a
group of applicants by a com-
mittee established by Students for
Educational Innovation.
The selection committee was
composed of three volunteers
chosen at a mass meeting and.
three students who had previously
sat on faculty committees.
Before a final decision is made,
Cohen is expected to discuss the
matter with members of the Re-
gents as well as executive com-
mittee members who were not
present at yesterday's meetings.
The executive committee is di-
rectly responsible to the Regents.
Currently, education school stu-
dents have non-voting seats on all

However, Eisner believes the
executive committee, which is the
most important decision-making
group in the school, is the com-

-A new building to house the ex-

Under Iravani's proposals, the ex-

an orientation program for all foreign
students. Presently ELI and the center
run separate programs.
Although everyone involved agrees

Because of the obvious squeeze for
space, the Board of Governors of the
center have indicated that the Madelon
Pound House could be renovated for ex-
panded use. The house, which was be-
queathed to the center, is presently used
only for offices and some programming.
Plans are being made to turn the
house into a coffee house with interna-
tional atmosphere and entertainment,
says Malin. However, this too will cost
money that has not yet been allocated
to the center.
