Corporate discrimination
Forty-four of Detroit's top 100 corporations
discriminate against blacks, Poles, Latinos and
Italians for positions in their upper echelons,
according to a study by University graduate stu-
dent Gerald Driggs. "The four groups are virtu-
ally absent from the executive suites of Detroit's
largest corporations," Driggs said - an embar-
rassing detail in light of the fact that the groups
make up a third of the metropolitan area's popu-
lation. Driggs' report, released Sunday, said blacks
suffer the worst, as they occupy only 0.4 per
cent of the uppermost positions in the corpora-
tions surveyed.

Shakeup in skin city
In the most drastic step yet in the organiza-
tion of the Playboy Enterprises, skin magazine
kingpin Hugh Hefner has announced his job as
president of the organization is now up for grabs.
"We're looking for someone to take over the day-
to-day operations of the company," Hef said. "It
was my hope that we would find the persons
we want inside our company, but we didn't and
now we're looking outside." The decision comes
in the wake of many economic woes for the slick
magazine and its mother corporation: staff cut-
backs, sale of the Playboy jet, and an upcoming
newsstand price hike to $1.50 an issue. If you're
interested in the job, it reportedly pays in six
figures. They didn't say whether women could
Crime pays
Two investigators told the House Government
Operations subcommittee yesterday that the gov-

ernment loses hundreds of millions of dollars in
taxes every year because the Internal Revenue
Service cannot verify how much money many
Americans make. The investigators said the sys-
tem works against low-income taxpayers because
"IRS has found that higher income taxpayers who
underpay their taxes often do so by underreport-
ing income. In contrast, lower lincome persons gen-
erally report all their income but tend to inflate
their deductions," an act which more frequently
triggers audits. The lost taxes may be as high
as $500 million a year, the investigators said. The
reason for the missing taxes: in most cases, they
said, the vast majority of taxpayers' forms is-
sued by employers are thrown away without any
attempt by IRS to check the figures against what
taxpayers report on their income tax forms.

Judge wants psychiatric tests

SAN FRANCISCO (N) - P a t r i c i a
Hearst's judge delayed final sentenc-
ing on her bank robbery conviction
yesterday and ordered the heiress
committed to a federal institution for
extensive psychiatric studies.
The surprise move by U.S. District
Court Judge Oliver Carter prolonged
the suspense surrounding the ulti-
mate fate of the kidnap victim-turn-
"THE COURT.finds that it requires more

detailed information before it can make a
final determination of sentence to be im-
posed," Carter explained,
He chose a course of action suggested
by Hearst's chief attorney, F. Lee Bailey,
who urged "a further in-depth medical
evaluation of this case." The examination
could take 90 days, and Carter said he
would grant another three months if needed.
As a required formality, the judge tem-
porarily imposed "the maximum sentence
under law" for armed bank robbery and
use of a firearm in a felony-35 years.
Carter said, however, he plans to reduce

that penalty when the heiress comes before
him for final sentencing-"How much, I am
not now prepared to say."
AS OUTLINED by Carter, the options
include 25 years with the maximum sen-
tences served concurrently, probation with
no further jail term, or anything in be-
In explaining his choices, the judge stern-
ly indicated his own view that Hearst's
conviction as a willing bank robber was
sustained by the evidence in her eight-week

Two newly-elected Council-
persons and three re-elected in-
cumbents were sworn in at last
night's City Council meeting, re-
storing to the Republicans the
majority they lost in the 1975
city elections.
Councilman Robert Henry (R-
Third Ward) was elected May-
or Pro Tem as the first order
of business, signaling the GOP's
new-found political strength
which may alter the focus of
city policy in the months to

persons are Wendell Allen (R-
First Ward), and Earl Green
(D-Second Ward). Re-elected
were Roger Bertoia (R-Third
Ward), Jamie Kenworthy (D-
Fourth Ward), and Lou Belch-
er (R-Fifth Ward).
The newly elected Councilper-
sons had barely been given the
oath of office before partisan
bickering broke out in Council

Italian stocks dive
as elections cause

ivestots to panic
From Wire Service Reports
ROME - Panic-selling sent stocks and bonds plunging to
record lows on Italian markets on a "Black Monday," reflecting
investor fears that impending parliamentary elections may bring
the Communists and their radical policies into the central govern-
Premier Aldo Moro conferred with leaders of his Christian
Democrat party to map out the final acts of his two-month-old
government. In the next block around the corner from Moro's
meeting at the Piazza del Gesu, the Communist leaders met all
day under party Secretary-General Enrico Berlinguer.
IN NAPLES, police charged into hundreds of workers who had
idled traffic in a protest demanding help from Communist Mayor
Maurizio Valenzi in collecting back wages. Police hurled tear
gas grenades and harassed the demonstrators. Two were treated
for minor injuries.
The dollar fetched 898.30 lire at the Milan fixing, an all-time
high that meant more inflation and higher prices for staples in
Italy, which depends on imports for most of its energy, raw
materials and beef.
Stock and bond prices plunged to new lows. Listing of five
companies was suspended after their losses exceeded 20 per cent.
By the close, losses of stock prices ranged from four to 15 per
cent, and the day was being called "Black Monday" in reference
to "Black Tuesday," Oct. 29, 1929, date of the stock market crash
that preceded the Great Depression.
"THEY ARE SELLING off shares, even those considered of
safe profit," one broker said. "Everyone fears that early elections
might result in a big advance of the Marxist parties, thus meaning
perhaps the end of the stock market."
The lira has lost about 33 per cent of its value in relation to the
dollar since Jan. 20, when the exchange market was closed for
40 days.

in a welcome to the new mem-
bers, discord was the order of
the evening as partisan jibes
were fired across the room.
AFTER Bertoia nominated
Henry for Mayor Pro Tem,
Councilwoman Elizabeth Keogh
(D-First Ward) delivered a ti-
rade against Henry, a fellow
member of the Council Rules
Committee, claiming that he
failed to show up at a working
lunch date with the Mayor and
herself earlier in the day. She
labelled his action "rude" and
said, "That's what happens
when the Republicans get in
Councilman Ron Trowbridge
(R-Fourth Ward) proceeded to
deliver a tongue-in-cheek im-
passioned speech in favor of
Henry. Then, in his first state-
ment as Councilman, Allen
chided Keogh for having brought
a young child onto the council
nlhtform. "This is typical of
the slimy b.s. that the Demo-
crats bring down," he charged.
Greene then asked the Mayor
to declare Allen out of order,
charging his statement was not
relevant to Henry's nomination.
Wheeler said he would let the
matter drop, and Henry was
subsequently elected by an 8-3
vote, with Keogh, Kenworthy
and Wheeler opposing.
said the Mayor following ap-
proval of Henry as Mayor Pro-
Tem. "I think we might even
put a thing on the window up-
stairs (in the mayor's office)."
"Or someplace," retorted
Henry, drawing laughter from
both Council members and as-
sembled spectators.
The Republicans again flexed
their new political muscle in
the appointment of the Zoning
Board of Appeals (ZBA). The
mayor made five nominations
for the six-person board, includ-
ing two council members,
Keogh and Bertoia - the maxi-
mum number permissible by
Wheeler also nominated
Keogh as ZBA chairwoman.
This was challenged by Henry,
who suggested Bertola for the
post. In a. straight party-line
vote (6-5) the Republican Ber-
toia was awarded the position.

The Ann 'Arbor Police Offic-
ers' Association sought an in-
junction yesterday to block last
Thursday's City Council deci-
sion to restrict police officers'
use of firearms.
Yesterday's suit claims last
week's policy decision might
place the police and public in
danger of death or injury, and
violates the Association's collec-
tive bargaining agreement.
DEMOCRATS in a lameduck
Council session passed the wea-
pons policy, which prevents of-
ficers from using a firearm
solely because they have cause
to believe a felony has been
committed.' The policy stipu-
lates that an officer only shoot
to protect him/herself or other
persons from death or serious
The new ruling was spurred
by several recent incidents in
the city, the latest of which
involved the fatal shooting of a
robbery suspect fleeing from

the site of the Pump 'n' Pan-
try last February.
In the suit, the Officers' As-
sociation, which represents 120
patrolpersons, asks why the city
implemented the policy without
properly notifying the officers
- a violation of police con-
tract provisions.
CITY Administrator Murray
"admitted to the error" that
the policy was implemented
without first conducting con-
versations with the officers, and
said the officers' input would
be heard in the near future.
Police Chief Walter Krasny,
however, was tight-lipped last
