Gas forces man from apartment

(Continued from Page ]
bi-level apartment while police tried
to talk him into surrendering.
neighbors watched from a distance as
police used bullhorns to communicate
with Bishop, who refused to answer.
Around 2:30 p.m. the decision was
made to use tear gar in order to drive
Bishop out. According to Major Walter
Hawkins of the Ann Arbor police, the
choice resulted from the knowledge
that a large number of children would
shortly be entering the apartment com-
plex, creating potential targets.
"We knew children would soon be
coming home from school," said Haw-
kins, "so we decided to go in."
HAWKINS HAD a close shave earlier
in the day when he and another officer
tried to approach Bishop. According to
Hawkins, as the two men went up the
stairs inside the apartment Bishop
aimed a gun at them, and they were
forced to "dive back downstairs."
As police began donning bulletproof
vests and masks in anticipation of the
attack, pets were removed from ad-
joining apartments in order to spare
them the effects of the tear gas fumes.
While an officer armed with a
shotgun covered them, several men
equipped with masks slipped inside the
apartment's lower floor.
"HE (BISHOP) was upstairs, so they
were able to come through the front

door," said one officer.
According to Hawkins, the police hid
behind a kitchen wall while two tear gas
cannisters were fired into the apar-
The gas drove Bishop from the up-
stairs room. He raced downstairs, still
carrying his gun, and burst out through
the front door. Two officers waiting
outside immediately grabbed him and
wrestled him to the ground.
AS TEAR GAS billowed out the door
and windows of the building, Bishop,
shoeless and clad in a brown sweater
and tan pants, was handcuffed and led
to a nearby police cruiser. The officers
who tackled Bishop had not been equip-
ped with gas masks, and they walked
with streaming eyes to a waiting am-
bulance for medical treatment.
Hawkins complimented the men in-
volved in the confrontation, saying they
showed "admirable restraint" in sub-
duing the armed suspect.
An elderly woman, who would iden-
tify herself only as a relative of
Bishop's, said that he had been
"emotionally upset."
"God bless you, son, you're going to
be all right," she called to Bishop as he
sat quietly ina patrol car.
Throughout the entire siege Bishop
never spoke a word. He maintained his
silence as he was later booked for
felonious assault at Ann Arbor police

"However, there are always going to
be problems in certain fields of
technology relating to legitimate
security considerations and in this case
those considerations are recognized by
all the parties," Carter added.
CARTER MADE the statements
when confirming the rejection of the
Daedalus Co.'s application to sell to
China the advanced airborne equip-
ment for geological exploration.
According to Carter, "The basic facts
of the case involve an export license
application for sale of infrared line-
scanning equipment by the Daedalus
Co. to the People's Republic of China."
The equipment was to be used by the
Chinese to locate oil, minerals and to
gather earthquake data. "The equip-
ment, however, has other potential ap-
plications that raise security concerns
for us," Carter told reporters.
He said the license was denied

and the company may appeal.

Paraquat kits found
to be ineffective

tification number with samples instead
of their names.
FINALLY, post offices would have to
substantially increase their staffs and
budgets should they attempt to begin
tracing sample senders. Cook said he
has heard rumors that postal em-
ployees have been instructed to ignore
the situation.
United Parcel Service (UPS) has ex-
pressed a willingness to transport the
test samples because, as a private
service, they are not under strict
federal regulations.
Meanwhile, paraquat test kits are
selling faster than they can be supplied
in Ann Arbor.
"It's hard to keep enough on hand -
they've bought all we had this week,"
said Village Corner employee Peter
Lindquist. A Campus Corners worker
reported that store did not have any
testing kits in stock yet, but they are
buying their own chemicals and
making up test kits themselves.
THE KITS SOLD at Village Corners
are put out by Ann Arbor Chemical &
Apparatus for $3 each. The kits are
based on a test developed in England
and researched by a New York
William Hruden, president of the Ann
Arbor firm, said his biggest fear is that
"some government agency will come in
and say 'don't make the kit'." Hruden
said he is not selling the kits simply for
profit, although some people have en-
couraged him to charge more.
"I shouldn't take advantage of
another's misfortune," he said.
Jack Baker of Drug Help, a local
gounseling center, said, "I don't endor-
se the kit entirely, because no study

was done to back the results." He added
that Drug Help usually recommends
sending samples to the Flint testing
center, especially if a kit test proves
It's a complicated reac-
tion and some neophvtes
can't just read about it
and put out a kit.'

Baker said Drug Help had 362 calls
concerning paraquat last month, about
half of the total calls they received.
However, Baker noted, "There hasn't
been a panic yet."
Manager Paul Brown of the Cincinnati
Bengals is credited with having inven-
ted the draw play in pro football during
his great years as coach of the
Cleveland Browns. But the master tac-
tician blushingly admits the draw hap-
pened by accident.
"Actually," said Brown, "it was born
in a game when quarterback Otto
Graham was getting such a hard pass
rush that he handed the ball off to
fullback Marion Motley in desperation.
Marion ran right between the rushers
for a big gain. We decided we had
something good sand 'e t it in our
play book as a regular forrngtiqq."' ,-
