Apartment cleaning
fees upheld by court

LANSING (UPI) - Cleaning
fees for rented apartments and
houses are legal and can be
kept by the landlord, according
to the Michigan Court of Ap-
A three-judge appeals panel
yesterday upheld a ruling by
Wayne County Circuit Judge
Blair Moody, Jr., that rejected
a class action suit filed by
seven renters against a num-
ber of landlordsaseeking to have
non-refundable fees declared il-
THE SUIT also sought to force
the defendants to refund the
fees to all tenants who had
paid them.
The suit contended the non-
returnable cleaning fees, which
ranged from $40 to $75, were
Army delays
Army unexpectedly delayed
choosing between General Mo-
tors and Chrysler Corp. on
which would develop an advan-
ced tank and told them to study
how it could be equipped with
the same key parts as West
German tanks.
Army Secretary Martin Hoff-
man said yesterday a decision
on the contract will be delayed
until possibly late this year.
At stake is a potential Army
purchase of 3,325 XMI tanks for
almost $5 billion.
The Army was supposed to
have decided this week whether
General Motors or Chrysler had
come up with the better design
and which firm should begin the

illegal under a 1972 state law
which states a security deposit
is the property of the tenant
until the landlord can legally
establish his right to keep all
or part of it to cover for re-
pairs, back rent or utility bills.
"The non-returnable fee is
agreed by covenant openly ap-
proved at, calling for the pay-
ment of a sum which does not
fall within the definition of a
security deposit," Moody wrote.
"THE TENNANT could have
no expectation that this sum
or a part thereof should be re-
turned. It is not a security de-
posit. The 1872 act does not
prohibit or limit such arrange-
ment between landlord and ten-
The Court of Appeals merely
adopted the Moody opinion as
its own and affirmed it.
tank choice
contract to move into full scale
This was to have been the
preliminary step to a final cois-
petition between the U.S. XM1
tank and West Germany's new
Leopard II tank, supposedly to
determine which the Pentagon
would order into production.
However, U.S. officials have
indicated a growing belief in
recent months that neither the
U.S. nor the German tank will
prove to be clearly superior and
that they should move toward
incorporating identical guns and
engines into both.
This they believed, would per-
mit the two countries to use
common ammunition and fuel,
increasing combat effectiveness
in their allied forces in Europe.

It Happened One Night -
(Cinema II, Ang. Aud. A, 7:30
& 9:30) - Frank Capra's 1934
romp about a runaway heiress
(Claudette Colbert) and a de-
termined reporter (Clark Gable)
who pursues her remains per-
haps the most completely date-
less comedy ever made. As
much a joy in 2076 as it is to-
day. ****
The Searchers - (Cinema
Guild, Arch. Aud., 7:30 & 9:30)
- John Ford's generation-
spanning Western about a fron-
tiersman (John Wayne) who
spends years searching for his
niece, who was kidnapped by
Indians when still a child. Ar-
guably Ford's best film, and
unarguably the finest perform-
ance Big Duke has ever turned
in onscreen.*
Iron Horse - (Cinema Guild,
Arch, Aud., 8 only) - John
Ford's first film, and one of
the most famous of all the si-
lent Westerns. Admission is
hearts and Minds - (Sum-
ler Film Showcase, MLB 3,
7:30 only) - A tremendously
disturbing film about the Viet-
nam debacle, seen through the
ayes ofbothtthe war's partici-
pants and those watching at
Unabashedly Left in view-
point, Hearts and Minds suffers
from occasional and unneces-
sary heavy - handedness in its
juggling of news clips. But by
and large, the film simply sits
hack and lets the events speak
for themselves - eloquently
and terrifyinglydetailing Amer-
ica's Dark Night of the Soul,
Which all the smiles and sooth-
lng words of this election year

will not wash away.
Admission to this film is
FREE as part of the Summer
Film Showcase series. It's the
best movie bargain of the Sum-
mer, and all Ann Arborites are
urged to unbury their heads
from the sand long enough to
go see it. ****
California Split - (Ann Ar-
bor Film Co-op, Ang. Aud. A,
7 & 9) - Probably Robert Alt-
man's most successful effort to
date, focusing on the lives of
compulsive gamblers and their
slow, sad realization that the
gobs of money involved - whe-
ther in winning or losing - are
far less important to them
than the game itself. The film
is typically long on mood and
short on plot, but in this case
the atmospheric qualities are
engrossing and true enough
that they make the picture a
success all by themselves.
In the leads, George Segal is
excellent as a desperate born-
loser, Elliot Gould somewhat
less effective as his more
wor ldly chum.*
Carnal Knowledge - (Ann Ar-
bor Film Co-op, Ang. Aud. A,
7 & 9) - The Mike Nichols-
J u I e s Feiffer collaboration
about Anerican males hung utp
in eternal adiolescence about its
notions over the opposite sex.
The film structures itself pret-
ty much life a Feiffer comic

strip, with most scenes confin-
ed to two-person dialogues or
one - person monologues - a
technique rarely used in Ameri-
can films but very effective
here. However one regards, its
psychological premise, Carnal
Knowledge is richly entertain-
ing and comic, bolstered by
Jack Nicholson in his very fin-
est - albeit typecast - per-
formance. ****
Th ursday
Yellow Submarine - (Ann
Arbor Film Co-op, Ang. Aud.
A, 7, 8:45, 10:30) - It took a
surprisingly long time for this
cartoon wonder to catch on
with the general public, per-
haps because the film's con-
cept and setting seemed too
strange for Beatle lovers to
identify with. In retrospect,
this is one o fthe most imagi-
native efforts of the entire ani-
mation repertoire, and thor-
oughly deserves its now mas-
sive (if belated) audience.
Carbonari, Italian meaning
"charcoal burners," was a se-
cret Italian society of the early
19th century, dedicated to the
ideals of liberalism and unifica-
tion of Italy.
