City Council Dems fail to meet Jury sequestered over
July 1st rent control deadline witness' mysterious death

(Continued from Page 3)
However, Wheeler was unsure
how many people would be on
the committee. "There is a
maximum figure of 15 . . . but
I'm hoping it comes out to 11."
Councilwoman C a r o1 Jones
(D-Second Ward), who was re-
elected in April, admitted Wed-
nesday she had failed to fulfill
a major campaign promise deal-
ing with rent control. "We said
we wanted something on the
books by July 1.
"WHERE WE'VE fallen short,
is getting that group together,"
commented Jones.
Another Democrat elected in
the spring, Councilwoman Eliza-
beth Keogh (f-First Ward), de-
clared Wednesday, "We need
something on that (rent con-
trol) fairly soon ... I've asked
him (Wheeler) e v e r y week
what's going on with this (the
committee) . . . and given
him stacks of materials."
"I gave him a list of names,"
Keogh reported. "He's had the
list now one, no it's probably
two months."
WHEELER stated Keogh had
given him the list one month
ago.
Tom Weider, a Democratic
spokesman, also indicated the
process for choosing the com-
mittee seemed to be taking too
long. "Frankly I'm a little sur-
prised at how slow things are

moving on this."
But Wheeler emphasized, "I've
only got five votes, it takes
some work to get six, but I'm
not gonna give away my soul
. I want something to hap-
pen that can lopefully fly."
THERE ARE five Democrats
on Council, but there is a liberal-
radical majority of six with
Kozachenko.
A defeated Democratic Coun-
cil hopeful in the Fourth Ward,
Bill Bronson, claimed in the
spring that the Democrats, if
they won a majority on Council,
would pass some version of a
rent control ordinance by July 1.
Bronson s t a t e d Wednesday
that the Democrats he was re-
ferring to were Councilwoman
Colleen McGee (D-First Ward)
and Jones, "July 1... Colleen
McGee was saying it and along
with Carol Jones." McGee is
out of town and unavailable for
comment.
COUNCILMAN J a m i e Ken-
worthy (D-Fourth Ward) ex-
cused the Democrats' inaction
on rent control since the April
election by pointing to Wheeler's
delayed swearing-in, "the budget
which took up May" and Coun-
cil's actions reappropriating fed-
eral grants during June.
However, Kenworthy did not
attempt to justify his party's in-
action on the issue since July
1. "There may be some delay
since then that we're responsible

for."
A defeated HRP Council can-
didate in the First Ward, David
Goodman, blasted the Democrats
non-action on r e n t control.
"They're past due on their
promises to initiate rent control
after the election. We should've
expected something already."
GOODMAN warned, "Time is
definitely running out They bet-
ter come through damn fast if
they want to keep to their cam-
paign promise."
Kozachenko tore apart Wheel-
er for taking so long to act on a
rent control ordinance. "He just
can't get anything together; he's,
not very efficient and just ram-
bles around."
Weider also pointed to Wheel-
er for the delay. "After all be
is the mayor, some' of the blame
... must be put on him," and
added, "He doesn't appear to
be Mr. Efficiency on Council."
The mayor explained that he
ranted to ensure "the Demo-
cratic point of view is not last
on the committee, but there is
not going to be a majority of
Democrats or Republicans" in
the group either.
HE ALSO said that the rent
control ordinance itself "must
not encourage a lot of people
to move out of Ann Arbor."
Sept. 1 is now the target date
Wheeler stated he has made for
the committee to submit its
rent control ordinance to Coun-
cil.

DETROIT (UPI) - Record-
er's Court Judge Justin Ravitz
ordered the jury in the so-called
Pingree Street drug conspiracy
trial sequestered yesterday be-
cause of the mysterious death of
a major prosecution witness.
Ravitz' order came in t h e
wake of the death Wednesday
of a Detroit police officer who
was scheduled as a major pro-
secution witness against nine
other policemen in the trial.
THE JURORS were expected
to be sequestered at least until
Sunday night, sources said.
Officers Maurice Gates, 29,
died of injuries he suffered in
what was officially reported as
an accidental fall while he was
reportedly guarding another key
witness at a motel in suburban
Birmingham.
But Gates' brother, Frank,
said he is convinced his bro-
ther was murdered because of
information he had implicated
some high-ranking Detroit po-
lice officers in the drug conspir-
acy.
A SPOKESMAN for the Oak-,
land County Medical Examiner's
Office said Gates had extreme-
ly high blood pressure when he
was admitted to the hospital af-
ter the alleged fall Monday
night.
The spokesman said a toxo-
logical examination will be con-
ducted by the state- Depart-
ment of Public Health to -etcr-
mine what caused Gates' blood
pressure to rise so rapidly.
Narcotics could be a contri-
buting factor, the spokesman
said, but official determination
cannot be made until release
of the state health report, wich
could take two weeks.
"HE WAS too healthy, n o t
sick a day in his life, and be-

ing very close to my brother, I
know," Frank Gates said. 'Ei-
ther the underworld killed him
or the men he works with killed
him."
Police officials quoted doctors
at Beaumont Hospital in Royal
Oak. as saying Maurice Gates
died of a broken blood vessel
in his brain 16 hours after an
accidental fall at the Birming-
ham House Motel.
Gates was part of an under-
cover team which investigated
police corruption and d r u g
trafficking leading to charges
against nine police officers and
eight civilians currently on trial
in Detroit Recorder's Court.
Police Chief Philip Tannian
said Wednesday he did not know
why Gates would have been as-
signed to guard another prosecu-
tion witness when he, Gates,
himself was scheduled to testi-
fy for the prosecution.
Jockey Angel Cordero scored
his 100th Oqueduct racing win
of 1975 with a chestnut colt
called Irish Fun, a horse he
had never ridden before.
