The fate of the 82-year-old
complex remains in limbo after
a December Regents meeting
in which the Board was deluged
with pleas for the University
to take another look at thefu-
ture of the structure, which
was earmarked for demolition
last year. A contingent of stu-
dents, faculty members, and
representatives from state and
community groups objected to
a University "review" prepared
by William Sturgis, an assistant
to former Vice President and,
Chief Financial Officer Wilbur
Pierpont. The report rec-
ommended- that the building
be torn down.
Opponents of the Sturgis re-
port claim that only superficial
attention was given to potentiall
uses for the buildings, and that
the structures' historic signifi-
cance had not been considered.
ECONOMICS PROF. William
Shepherd argued that the cen-
ter of student activity on cam-
pus had shifted over the last
decade - away from the Stu-
dent Activities Building and the
Union on the eastern edge of
the campus and towards the
Hill area dorms and North cam-'
pus. Shepherd thinks Barbour-
Waterman has considerable po-
tential as a student center.
In a long, methodical response,
University President Robben
Fleming, in effect, agreed with
the groups, saying that there
would be no problem in find-
ing alternative uses for the
building. He added, however,
that the movement to save Bar-
bour - Waterman has evolved
outside normal decision-making,
systems, which runs through the
schools and colleges into the ad-
ministration. There were, he
concluded, other priorities for
use of the land Barbour-Water-
man, now occupies.
But the presentation had an'
effect. At least one Regent,
Sarah Power (D-Ann Arbor), ex-
pressed dissatisfaction with the
Sturgis report, and 'Vice Presi-
dent for Academic Affairs Frank
Rhodes is apparently taking an-
other look at possible reuse for
the building. He will make his
recommendations to the Regents'
later this month.
Courtroom proceedings have
begun in the Ann Arbor Veter-
an's Administration (VA) Hos-
pital mass murder case. De-
fense attorneys for the two ac-
cused Filipino nurses introduc-
ed motions challenging evidence
crucial to federal prosecutors.
The two nurses, Filipina Nar-
ciso, 30, and Leonora Perez, 32,
are charged with murdering five
patients at the hospital in the
summer of 1975 by injecting
them with deadly doses of Pavu-
lon,, a powerful muscle relax-
ant. They have also been in-
dicted on one charge of con-
spiracy to murder and ten
counts of poisoning.

Ford has agreed to
presidential papers in

Campus and funded by private
donations. It will be operated
by the federal government as
part of the National Archives.
Under the terms of an agree-
ment between the University
and the White House, the papers
will remain the property of the
U.S. government, although they
will be housed on campus. Rich-
ard Doolen, assistant director of
the Bentley Historical library
called the presidential papers
"a very important addition" to
the University's collections.
