Power corrupts.
He's still not sure exactly where it happened,
but Richard Darr, general foreman of the Uni-
versity electric shop, said Wednesday night's cam-
pus power failure was caused by a faulty cable
somewhere- between the power station on Huron
St. and the substation in the Michigan Union.
The cable, which darkened a bunch of Univer-
sity buildings west of State St., lasted for al-
most an hour and a half. Sneaky little devil,
huh? Darr said it probably won't happen again

Reward for tp
As part of their "Secret Witness Program,"
The Detroit News is offering a $3,000 reward for
any information leading to the arrest and con-
viction of the person(s) believed to be respon-
sible for the rash of 15 assaults on local women
during the past six weeks. This program is a
way in which people can tell what they know
but remain anonymous. The tipster's only identi-
fication is a six-digit number and .if a tip leads
to an arrest, it is up to that person to contact
the Detroit News. When The News receives the
tip, it turns it over to the police to investigate.
The program, begun in 1967, has helped solve 44
murder cases as well as various other crimes,
incluing rape. Over $120,000 has been given out
in reward money. If you have any information
concerning the assaults, call the Detroit News
at 222-7549 or write to them at 615 Lafayette
in Detroit.
VA trial
Leonora Perez and Filipina Narciso, the nurses
charged in the 1975 P.avulon murders of five
patients at the Ann Arbor Veterans' Administra-
tion Hospital, will go on trial in Federal Court
February 1. The trial had been scheduled to be-
gin the first week of January, but U.S. District
Court Judge Philip Pratt moved it back to pro-
vide time for pretrial hearings and moti-s. The
women 'face a federal indictment which charges
them with 16 counts of murder and poisoning.

to destroy



A small group of faculty and students have ex-
pressed dissatisfaction with a University report
recommending that the Regents stand by an
earlier decision to authorize the demolition of
the Waterman-Barbour gymnasiums.
The report, prepared for the December Re-
gents meeting by William Sturgis, an assistant to
Vice President and Chief Financial officer Wilbur
Pierpont, concludes that restoration of the 82-
year-old complex would be too costly. In March,
the Board decided to raze the buildings, and to

building decision of the decade.

possibly replace them .with an addition to the
Chemistry Building. But it agreed to reconsider
the move, pending this report.

ECONOMICS PROF. William Shepherd, grad-
uate students Kathie Gourlay and Jerry Scheilke,
and Dorothy McGuigan, a program associate
for the Center for Continuing Education for Wo-
men, say that potential uses' for the building
need a more thorough exploration.
"Sturgis and Pierpont haven't done a proper
study for the Regents," Shepherd said. "We.
think there's something funny about it."
"This is probably the largest building decision;
of the decade," he added. "People think there's
no issue on campus this year but there is."
SHEPHERD said University President Robben
Fleming "just brushed off one 2000 signature pe-
tition as 'predictable"', and that University staff
failed to attend informational meetings with

ignoring the historic "value of the 82-year-old
buildings, which "the Department of Natural

Attorneys representing the
mother of convicted mur-
derer Gary Gilmore yester-
day asked U. S. Supreme
Court Justice Byron White
and Utah state courts to
postpone Gilmore's execu-
Bessie Gilmore of Mil-
waukie, Ore., has said she
opposes capital punishment
and does not want her son
to die. But Gilmore, who
says death is better than a
lifetime behind bars, sug-
gested earlier this week
that persons trying to save
him should "butt out."
GILMORE HAS persuaded
Utah officials to let him die
and is scheduled to go before a
firing squad at sunrise Monday,
which would make him the first
person executed in this country
in nine years.
The request to White was
made by Anthony Amsterdam,
a Stanford Law School profes-
sor who said he had been re-
tained by Gilmore's mother.
A Salt- Lake City attorney
working with Amsterdam, Rich-
ard Giauque, filed petitions in
the Utah Supreme Court and in.

a review of the Utah Supreme
Court's Nov. 10 order with-
drawing a previously granted
stay of execution for Gilmore:
"THE NEED FOR a stay of
execution . . . is obvious," Am-
sterdam told White. "Such stays
are commonly granted in death
cases. Indeed, the, only factor
that makes this application un-
usual is petitioner's assertion
that he wishes to be executed."
The request said Gilmore's de-
sires must be weighed against
procedural safeguards in the

White, who represents the
court in urgent matters for the
10th U. S. Circuit that includes
Utah, planned to refer the mat-
ter to the full court for consid-
eration. A decision did not seem
likely before the court's week-
ly conference today.

boycott defeated

By AP and Reuter
Secretary Donald Rumsfeld
yesterday ordered a start on
production of the costly and
controversial Bi bomber, a de-
cision that could be overturned
by President-elect Jimmy Car-
ter after he takes office.
Carter has said he would keep
the plane in the research stage.
More than $2 billion already
has been spent on Bi research
and development and the Ford
administration believes it is
ready to be produced. The Air
Force secretary said he had

tion chief at the Pentagon, of

For the first time since its
inception in 1972, the referen-
dum to boycott non-union let-
tuce in University housing has
been defeated. The boycott,
which supports the United Farm
Workers (UFW) failed by-a two-
to-one margin, as votes in the
University Housing Council
(UHC) were tallied last night.
Meanwhile with most of the
vote still uncounted, only two
of the 11 seats qn the Michigan
Student Assembly (MSA) have
been filled. Irving VFreeman won
an MSA seat after four unsuc-
cessful bids in past elections.
