rinciples prove cosdy to Ozone House

Because Ozone House intentionally
violates a Michigan law regarding
runaways, the local counseling cen-
ter will have to pay $4,000 a year to
use a new state information relay
system on runaway youths - even
though other counseling centers in
Michigan won't have to pay a cent.
Ozone House also lost $26,000 in
state aid last year, because it insists
on aiding runaways who don't wish to
contact their parents.
MEMBERS OF the counseling
center, located on N. Main, will meet
tonight to decide whether they want
to pay $4,000 for the use of the
Uniform Reporting System (URS), a
network which channels information.

about runaways to and from other
runaway hostels in Michigan. None
of the other centers are being
charged for using the URS.
Ozone House lost its contract with
the state Department of Social
Services last year because its prac-
tices violate Michigan's youth har-
boring law.
Workers at the local center say
they are doing the best thing by
aiding all runaways. "Sometimes
they just need a one day reprieve
before they feel they can go home,"
says Debbie Argenbright, treasurer
and fund raiser for Ozone House.
"What can you do, just say 'Good-

'The only way we'll ever get the money is
if the kaw is changed-if it's no longer illegal

stop doing it.'

She notes that it is also the only one
which violates the harboring law.
"The great majority (of runaway
houses) have boards of directors
which dictate what the houses can
and can't do. I think some people are
sympathetic, but their hands are
The Office of Juvenile Justice
Services recently conducted an in-
vestigation to evaluate the juvenile
justice system. One of its recommen-
dations was to repeal the harboring
law. "It's gone through public hear-
ings," says Argenbright unenthusias-
tically. "There's talk now that it was
an incomplete investigation."
Despite their acknowledged viola-
tion of the harboring law,bOzone
House has not been cited by the

police. "I guess they choose to ignore
it," says Argenbright.
"IF THEY did choose to do some-
thing," adds Judi Duberman, train-
ing, coordinator for volunteers at
Ozone House, 'vhat would happen is
that the kids would probably end up
in court, and they don't really want to
do that."
Duberman also mentions that citi-
zens of Ann Arbor are passive about
the methods used by Ozone House.

know we're not out to get their kids."

Israeli warplanes streaked across the
southern Lebanese border early
yesterday, pounding Palestinian
strongholds in reprisal for guerrilla
rocket attacks that killed three Israelis
this week. Palestinian and Lebanese of-
ficials said the Israeli attack killed 87
persons and wounded 105.
Israel's deputy defense minister, at a
funeral for one of the Israeli victims,
said the guerrillas "will pay the full
price for t eir actions" and that
"Jewish blood is not for the taking." He
vowed "never to give the murderers
any rest."
ABU JIHAD, a Palestinian guerrilla
commander supervising rescue
operations in the nearly flattened town
of Azzieh, six miles north of the Israeli
frontier, said, "not a single guerrilla
has been killed and most of the

casualties are women and children."
But a Palestinian spokesperson ad-
mitted later that three members of a
guerrilla antiaircraft battery "were
killed while trying to repulse the
raiding jets."
Israeli jets are able to cross the bor-
der with impunity because the

tegrated during the 19-month Moslem-

peackeeping force, charged with
preventing Moslem-Christian blood-
shed, operates principally in the nor-
thern part of the country.
AN ASSOCIATED Press correspon-
dent reporting from Azzieh, said he saw
a dozen Palestinian women wailing
hysterically, pulling their hair and
tearing their clothes outside the small
infirmary serving nearby Burj el

Shimali refugee camp.
The bodies of nine children, aged
between five and 12, lay under bloody
sheets in the infirmary's surgical ward,
and one of the Palestinian women chan-
ted: "Why have they killed our innocent
babies? The wrath of God on the cursed
Israeli pilots!"
It was the first Israeli air raid an-
nounced in nearly two years, and the
first time the hardline government of
Menahem Begin has openly flexed its
military muscle since taking office
June 20.
BOMB CRATERS 10 yards wide
could be seen in villages and camps hit
by theIsraeli jets. Refugeesrsaid as
many as 12 Israeli jets made repeated
sorties to drop their bombs during the
early morning raid.
"Thank God most of us had just left
home to go to work," said Aly Yacoub,
a refugee whose wife and daughter
were killed when his house was
wrecked along with 50 others.
"If the Israelis attacked even 15
minutes earlier the death toll would
have been terrible."
A SPOKESPERSON for the Palestine
Liberation Organization (PLO) said the
raid was "a direct consequence of the
irresponsible and criminal en-
couragement of Israel by the United
- States."
He said the State Department, in a

ATTORNEYS FOR TWO University women tell the press yesterday they are willing to take their claim that no voter should
be compelled to reveal her vote to the U.S. Supreme Court.
.Voter case -may persist
to U.S., Suprem--e Court.

Attorneys representing Susan Van-
Hattum and Diane Lazinsky, the two
University students who voted im-
properly in last April's mayoral
election, said yesterday that - with
client approval - they would be
willing to take the voting case to the
U.S. Supreme Court.
The statement, made at a Press
conference sponsored by the Ameri-
can Civil Liberties Union (ACLU)
and the Law School Student Senate,
was a response to a ruling Monday by
the Michigan Court of Appeals which
said that because the two women had

"voted without proper qualifica-
tion," the constitutionally guaran-
teed right to a secret ballot "does not
extend to them." Attorneys said
Monday they would appeal to the
state Supreme Court sometime this
ALTHOUGH 18 other non-Ann
Arbor residents voted improperly,
and thus may be asked to reveal their
votes in court, the Appeals Court de-
cision pertains to just VanHattum
and Lazinsky since they were the
only witnesses who refused to dis-
close their votes.
VanHattum is represented by Jon-

athon Rose, a local attorney, and
Diane Lazinsky is represented by a
team of three ACLU attorneys:
Vincent Blassi, Edward Goldman,
and Sharon Philbrook.
Donald Coleman, chairman of the
And Arbor and Washtenaw County
chapter of the ACLU, began the press
conference with a brief opening
"WE ARE very disappointed with
the decision of the state Court of
Appeals yesterday," he said. "We
are extremely concerned that the
voters' right to a secret ballot be
protected. No one government agen-
cy has the right to know how any one
person, let alone 20 people voted," he
continued. Coleman, who said that
when a person is cited with contempt
and handcuffed, they are being
intimidated, added, "Intimidation
has a tendency to undermine the poli-
tical process. There is no telling
where that intimidation may ulti-
mately lead us."
Coleman said that the lawyers in
the proceedings had other means at
their disposal to litigate the case
without violating the constitutional
rights of the voters.
Attorney Goldman said the ACLU
had no interest in affecting the
election results.
"OUR CONCERN is the rights of
the individual voter. We are not con-
cerned with who won the election and
who will therefore be mayor of Ann
Arbor, or the results of the election in

A Daily News Analysis
Tuesday's elections in Detroit
proved three things - that any black
candidate who openly appeals to
white voters risks losing the support
of blacks, that the city has undergone
a realignment that has resulted in a
black mayor, a black City Council
President, and a five-to-four major-
ity of blacks on City Council, and that
a candidate can win in Detroit, as
Councilman-elect Kenneth Cockrel
proved, without the endorsement of
the powerful United Auto Workers
(UAW), or the news media.
Detroit's first black mayor Cole-
man Young, handily won re-election
to a second four-year term, and he'll
serve the city with another - black,

Councilwoman Erma Henderson, as
President of the Detroit City Council.
YOUNG TOOK 59 per cent of the
vote from challenger Ernest Browne,
the two-term councilman, who had
hoped to oust Young by building a
coalition of disenchanted whites and
some blacks.
Before the September primary,
Browne's campaign manager Ron
Hammer had told The Daily that if
Browne could capture just 20 per cent
of the black votes and over 90 per-
cent of the white vote, "There's no
way (Young) can win."
As it turned out, by appealing to
white voters, Browne alienated
blacks, who voted overwhelmingly -
over 90 per cent - for Young.

HENDERSON \was the top vote-
getter in the Council race, automat-
ically catapulting her to the presi-
dency vacated by retiring Council-
man Carl Levin.
Seven incumbents sought re-elec-
tion to the nine-member Council and,
in line with Detroit election tradi-
tion, no incumbent lost. Leaving two
vacant seats were Levin and Browne.
Both seats were won by blacks,
giving the Council a five-to-four
black majority.
Another significant point is that the
only two women on the Council, Hen-
derson and Maryann Mahaffey, fin-
ished in the top two spots.
