Canadian
high court
to shape
nation's
future

OTTAWA (AP) - The nine justices of
Canada's Supreme Court, in a moment
rare in any country's history, are to
issue a decision Monday that will
determine the future shape of. their
nation.
The high court in Ottawa will be
judging the legality of Prime Minister
Pierre Elliott Trudeau's plan to
overhaul Canada's antiquated con-
situtional system.
THE TRUDEAU plan, which would
take the constitution out of the British
Parliament's jurisdiction and establish
it as a made-in-Canada document, is
bitterly opposed by eight of Canada's 10
provincial governments. Provincial
premiers view it as a bid by the prime
minister to centralize power in the
federal government.
If the justices rule in Trudeau's

favor, it will boost federal supremacy
in the highly decentralized Canadian
confederation. But it could also provoke
new confrontations between the two
levels of government, or even civil
disobedience by the provinces.
"IF THESE unilateral actions are
accepted now, we might begin to won-
der what will stop similar actions in the
future," complained Newfoundland's
Brian Peckford, one of the most
militant premiers in the constitutional
battle.
If the court rules against the Ottawa
government, it could lead to a period of
constitutional paralysis in Canada, and
possibly drive Trudeau from office and
force early elections.
The dispute is more than a clash bet-
ween politicians. Involved are issues
that affect the lives of ordinary

Canadians-among them the right to
minority language education and the
right to find work in other provinces.
TRUDEAU'S constitutional reform
scheme is designed to end an
anachronism that makes Canada the
only independent nation unable to
amend its own constitution.
The constitution now is the British
North America Act of 1867, an act of the
British Parliament that brought the
Canadaian colonies together as a con-
federation of provinces.
When Britain tried to hand over full
constitutional responsibility to Canada
in 1931, the provinces could not agree on
what amending formula to use for
future changes. The constitution
remained in British hands.

help liquidate about $10 million in
residential real estate holdings
acquired by GM from employees tran-
sferred to other areas.
"WE WANT TO reduce this inventory
of houses in the Detroit area and we
think this is a unique kind of marketing
program that ought to be given a try,"
said Robert Burger, vice president in
charge of GM's sales and marketing
staff, in a statement announcing the,
program. "If it works here, we may try
it elsewhere in the country."
Burger and William O'Keefe, head of
GM's real estate operations, announced
the promotion at a news conference in
one of the houses, in suburban Troy.
The house sells for $122,000 and comes
with a 1982 Chevrolet Cavalier, sticker
price $9,538.
O'Keefe said some of the houses have,

Stereo equipment stolen,
Stereo equipment, valued at $350, was
taken from an apartment on the 600
block of E. Ann sometime between
Sunday and Monday, police reported
yesterday. It is unknown how the thief
gained entry, but police said there was
no sign of force.
Ann Arbor man robbed
A 27-year-old Ann Arbor man had his
bicycle stolen after being struck on the
head with a bottle on the corner of State
and Monroe streets Friday, police said.
The victim said he didn't know if the
bottle was thrown or held in the
assailant's hand, but when he got up
from the blow, his bike was gone. The
bike was worth $100.

been on the market for a year. He
blamed high mortgage interest rates
for difficulty in selling the homes.
ALTHOUGH GM HAS more than 100
unsold houses in the metropolitan
Detroit area, only about 78-those
costing more than $80,000-are included
in the offer, which runs thrugh Oct. 31.
That number may increase, however.
"We have to continue to move people
for their own development as well as
the needs of the business," O'Keefe
said. "we're constantly moving people.
We may have more houses next
week."
The average cost of the houses is
about $92,000 but the prices go as high
as $204,000. The model of car available
depends on the value of the house it ac-
companies. More expensive homes will
include cars that are higher priced or
equipped with more options, GM said.

Purse snatching at Dooley's
A 23-year-old Chicago woman is
facing charges that she stole a woman's
purse from the women's bathroom in
Dooley's bar, 310 Maynard, early
yesterday morning. The victim, a 21-
year-old woman from Ann Arbor, was
in the bathroom when someone reached
under the stall door and grabbed her
purse, police said yesterday. After
telling her friends what had happened,
they went outside and saw the suspect,
Diane Holmes, with the purse.A fight
ensued and one of the women was
kicked in the hed, while the others suf-
fered cuts and bruises. Holmes is being
held in Washtenaw County Jail, pen-
ding her trial. She is being charged with
larceny on a person.
Football ticket stolen
An apartment on the 900 block of S.
Forest was broken into, police repor-
ted, but the only thing stolen was a
University football ticket. The residen-
ts were apparently away from Sept. 7 to
Sept. 19 and when they returned they
discovered the ticket was missing.
Police didn't know which game the
ticket was for. The method of entry was
also unknown, and there was no sign of
force.
Service
to be held

'U' student
A memorial service, scheduled in

August, will be held today at 8 p.m. in
the Rackham West Conference Room.

Aug. 14 while, working at a counseling
center. A man believed to be a patient

tion with the murder.
Coombs began her doctoral studies in
clinical psychology here in 1973. She
mailed in her dissertaion Aug. 13, the
day before she was shot.

IN BRIEF-
Complied from Associated Press and
United Press International reports
Space shuttle flight delayed
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla.- The second flight of the space shuttle Colum-
bia will be delayed at least "one or two weeks" beyond its Oct. 9 launch date
because a fuel spill damaged up to 250 of its heat-protective tiles, officials
said yesterday.
George Page, director of shuttle operations at Kennedy Space Center, told
reporters that technicians wearing suits to protect themselves against the
highly toxic fuel were still at the launchpad Tuesday evening assessing
damage.
He said no specific estimate of how long the launch date would be moved
back was available.
There were no injuries in the spill of more than three gallons of poisonous
chemical, which occurred as fuel was being loaded in anticipation of the
launch.
Reagan to address nation
on additional budget cuts
WASHINGTON- With Republican leaders balking at any new slash in
Social Security, President Reagan planned yesterday to take his case for
further budget cuts directly to the nation.
But while he invited Americans to tune in tomorrow night for some tough
talk, aides said he would consider, meanwhile, the advice of his GOP allies
that Congress simply won't buy elements of his latest package, totaling $16.3
billion in additional cuts for 1982.
Appealing for cooperation in Congress with the resident's program,
Treasury Secretary Donald Regan said the nation's financial markets will
respond positively when they see the administration is determined to stick
with its economic policy.
Union says tuition tax breaks
will aid 'fanatic' educators
WASHINGTON- The president of the American Federation of Teachers
said yesterday that proposed federal tuition tax credits for parents of
private-school pupils would put the government behind schools run by
fanatics and extremists.
"We can expect our tax dollars will be used to pay for schools run by cults
such as the Moonies or by political extremists such as the Nazis or by those
whose grasp of reality is fragile at best,'Z Albert Shanker, president of the
teachers' union, told a House Education subcommittee.
John Chapoton, assistant treasury secretary for tax policy, said President
Reagan remains committed to tuition tax credits but is not ready to endorse
any specific proposal.
Ex-CIA deputy defends
personal business abroad
WASHINGTON- Former CIA deputy director Vernon Walters, himself
paid $300,000 this year for his role in a foreign weapons deal, says there's "no
way"~ to bar retired intelligence officials from doing business abroad.
But Walters, now ambassador-at-large at the State Department, said he
would favor a two-year ban against former CIA officials working with coun-
tries or agencies they had dealt with during their government service.
Soprano booed and heckled
at Met's opening night
NEW YORK- The Metropolitan Opera began its new season with the most
disruptive opening in years Monday night, as scores of normally staid first-
nighters booed soprano Renata Scotto's attempts to sing "Norma," and one
heckler was even carted off by security guards.
The trouble began as soon as the controversial Scotto made her entrance
in her Met debut as Bellini's Druid priestess, one of opera's most fiendishly
difficult roles because it requires great dramatic power and coloratura
agility above high C.
