Firebomb
damages
drugstore
"Closed by mankind's violent
insanity," reads a sign in front of
Campus Corner drugstore, exten-
siVely damaged by a fire bombing
early yesterday morning.
According to police reports, two
officers on patrol at about 2:52
a.m. saw three persons cross State
St., go to Campus Corner, "light
an incendiary object and throw it
through the window of the door
on th ePackard St. side."
The police chased and appre-
hended one of the three man.
Store owner Larry T r o x e I11
blamed the arson on 'three guys
from Alabama who used to hang
around here." Troxell, however,
could think of no reason why the
three might have done it.
He said that a brick was thrown
through the window followed by
the "incendiary object" which he
described as a "half-gallon can of
gas."
Although no official estimate of
damage has been given Troxel es-
timated losses of $15,000, stating
that most of the damage consisted
of "general merchandise."
The man apprehended in the
incident, according to police re-
ports, is William Gary Martin, a
resident of Alabama who now
lives in Whitmore Lake.
Martin was arraigned yesterday
afternoon in District Court where
he demanded a pretrial examina-
tion, which was set' for November
25. A bond of $5,000 was set by
~Judge S. J. Elden and after failing
to meet it Williams was sent to
the county jail.
The incident remains somewhat
of a mystery, however, as no mo-
tive for the arson has as yet been
determined. Police are still search-
ing for Martin's two accomplices.
Ann Arbor Fire Chief John Wil-
liams described as blaze as a
"pretty good fire," and said that
damage extended. for 10 feet in-
side the door.
Called to the fire at 2:45 a.m.,
Williams said it was necessary to
evacuate 11 persons from apart-
ments on the second floor. No one
was seriously injured as, Williams,
explained, "The sprinkler system
had it pretty much under con-
troL.''
Rejetet Jurors
In Seale trial
(Continued from Page 1)
ercised two of their 60 preemptory
challenges. Garry rejected one
juror yesterday who appeared to
have no obvious bias or prejudge-
ments of the Black Panther Party,
was 36 years old (the average age
of the first panel of 50 prospective
jurors is nearly 51), and was at-
tending college part time.
Garry explained afterwards
that he believed the prospective
juror was misrepresenting himself.
The juror had told the court he
knew "nothing" about the Black
Panther Party, and also said that
despite having a full time job,
five children, and attending night
school, it would be no hardship
for him to serve on the jury for a
long period of time.
"I don't believe him,"- said Gar-
ry. "And even if he's telling the

truth, then anyone who is 36 and
going to college and can sit here
and tell me he doesn't know any-
thing about the Black Panther
Party is not going to sit on my
jury."
Garry called the juror a "sleep-
er" who was trying to say the
proper things that might get him
chosen to sit on the jury.

committee announced yesterday it
will challenge a court order against
its report on alleged radical cam-

The maneuver "sets the stage,
for what may well become an his-

the House Internal Security Com-

Public printing of the report-

The agreement between Model.
Cities -and the Concentrated Code
Enforcement Program not to in-
spect housing in the Model Cities
area on a systematic basis has
come under attack by a member
of City Council.
The Code Enforcement P r o-
gram was set up last January un-
der a federal contract with t h e
city. Its purpose was to use fed-
eral funds to speed up housing in-
spection and improvement in
areas of the city with low quality
housing.
This area includes the neighbor-
hood over which Model Cities, a
federal program for economically
depressed areas, has jurisdiction.
If houses fall short of the city
requirements they have to be fix-
ed by the owners. The program has
$437,500 to give away in grants
to needy home owners.
It also helps eligible homeown-
ers obtain F.H.A. loans and choose
contractors for home improve-
ments.
Dr. George Bowler, director of
the enforcement program, indi-,
cated that the decision not tohin-
spect the Model Cities neighbor-
hood on a block-by-block basis was
made to give Model Cities "a
chance to look over" the Code En-
forcement Program.
It was felt, in view of the de-
pressed economic condition of the
Model Cities area, it would be un-
fair to the homeowners there to

impose housing codes and 10 a n
procedures on them without first
consulting the Model C i t i e s
Policy Board, Bowler said.
Councilman Joseph Edwards ob-
jected at Monday's City Council
meeting to enforcing the program
in one area and not in another as
being "discriminatory."
He contended that the policy
was unfair to those outside of the
Model Cities neighborhood be-
cause they are subject to inspec-
tion which they might not want,
while Model Cities homeowners
are exempt from it for the time
being.
Edwards also pointed out that
this policy is unfair to Model Cit-
ies homeowners who might want
their homes inspected in order to
obtain home improvement loans
and grants.
Bowler said, however, that Mod-
el Cities homeowners could re-
quest inspection in order to ob-
tain a loan or grant.
Bowler also claimed that he did
not have enough staff to inspect
the whole code enforcement area
all at once and therefore had to
be selective in choosing areas for
inspection.
Edwards said he knows people
who "are afraid" to go through the
City Hall Buraucracy and says
they should not have to fill out a
form to request an inspection but
should have their houses inspect-
ed automatically.

ROBERT LEONARD, Genesee County Prosecutor, walks to his
office yesterday after he and his 18-member staff decided to have
their upcoming pay raises spent on county drug abuse control and
welfare programs.
Flint officials to give
pay for drug control

FLINT (/) - Prosecutor Robert
Leonard and his 18-member staff
are in line for pay raises but
but they've asked the county to
keep the money and spend it, in-
stead, on drug abuse control and
welfare programs.
That is "where the need is, for
the present, most imperative," the
prosecutor said.
The Gennesee County Board of
Commissioners already had Leon-
ard ticketed for a $1,000 annual
increase and his staff of 18 for
three per cent boosts when they
requested it take the money back.
Instead, the prosecutors s u g -
gested the money be devoted to ex-
tra emphasis on control of drug
abuse and to meeting welfare
costs occasioned by already h i g h
and mounting unemployment.
Leonard and his staff wrote the
commissioner:

estimated $14,000 damage was

The expulsion of one student
was suspended "subject to his fu-
ture behavior," according to Ann
Arbor School Superintendent W.
Scott Westerman.
The board unanimously decided
on the expulsion orders in less
than fifteen minutes as over 200
people crowded the meeting cham-
bers to hear the decision.
