leetures
on drive
for death
penalty

By FANNIE WEINSTEIN
Outspoken capital punishment advocate L. Brooks
Patterson addressed an audience of almost 200 people
at the Union last night urging their support in his
drive to have the death penalty reinstated in
Michigan.
Patterson, who is a candidate for the upcoming
gubernatorial race, said he presently has half of the
320,000 signatures needed by June, 1982, to have the
issue submitted to the public on the November, 1982
ballot. Patterson said he began the drive two years
ago.
THE OAKLAND County Prosecutor told the crowd
that although he realizes the death penalty would not
eliminate crime altogether, it would serve as a
deterrent.
"Nobody is going to tell you they're going to stop all

homicide, but if we can stop some person, it's going to
be a net gain for you and I," Patterson said.
He said that the issue of justice was perhaps a more
justified argument in support of the death penalty.
After a crime is committed in a "wicked and
outrageous fashion," he said, a criminal should be
given a punishment that fits the crime.
PATTERSON WAS also the sponsor of Proposal B,
which when passed in 1978, revised the state's parole
system.
After the Supreme Court ruled in 1976 that capital
punishment could not be labeled as "cruel and
unusual punishment," 39 states have reinstated the
death penalty. In Michigan, the penalty for first-
degree murder is mandatory life imprisonment
without parole.
Attempting to strengthen his argument, Patterson
provided the audience with grisly details of murder

cases his office has dealt with, including the case
which initiated the drive, the brutal September, 1979
murder of an Oakland County teenager.
At the lecture, the first in the Viewpoint Lecture
Series, Patterson was greeted with both polite ap-
plause and some negative reaction. Flyers against
capital punishment were distributed in the Union
before the lecture by the Michigan Coalition Against
the Death Penalty.
During a brief question and answer session
following the lecture, Patterson re-emphasized his
position.
"Not all people are going to consider the risk before
they commit the crime but if some people do, an in-
nocent life might be saved. . . If we don't let society
know that there's a price tag on life, then you've
cheapened it" he said.

Cash taken in apartment
break-in
An apartment on the 500 block of
South Forest Street was broken into
Monday night, police reported yester-
day. Taken in the theft was $25 in cash
and some jewelry of undetermined
value. Police have not determined how
the thief entered the apartment, but of-
ficials said there was no sign of force.

Carter helps Reagan
on AWACS deal

From AP and UPI
WASHINGTON- Former President
Jimmy Carter extended President
Reagan one hand in help and gave him
back the other yesterday as he pushed
an arms sale to Saudi Arabia but said
his successor's tax cuts are "unfair and
excessive" and his overall foreign
policy warlike.
Carter and his wife, Rosalynn, were
in Washington for their first visit since
Reagan's inauguration last January.
Carter and Reagan met alone in the
Oval Office for about 30 minutes late in
the afternoon. Leaving the White
House, Carter stopped at a microphone
only long enough to say that
historically, meetings with the
president are confidential and "that's a
principle I think ought to be restored."
HE SAID HE had a "good, construc-
tive and friendly meeting," and, when
asked whether he had gotten along well
with Reagan, said, "We've always got-
ten along well."
At a press conference earlier he of-
fered strong support for the $8.5 billion
Saudi, deal, including five Airborne
Warning and Control System radar
planes. He based his argument on the
need to support a presidential

decision-even though this one was
"close call."
Mrs. Carter, looking back with "
bitterness," said yesterday she enjoy
her years in the White House but wou
not want her husband to run again f
the presidency.
BUT THE former first lady called t
Reagan administration's dismantlit
of her Mental Health Act a traged
chided it for slighting her husband
terms of furnishingintelligence a
foreign policy briefings, and express
resentment at reports the Preside
and Mrs. Reagan found the mansi
had been neglected in the Carter era.
She said she would not want h
husband to run for the presiden
something Carter said he had no inti
tion of doing, because "I'm thorough
at home. Jimmy is at ease. I like it th
way. It's fun to come back and see o
friends, but I have . . . no feeling
giving up anything."~

A leather coat valued at $350 was
stolen from the display window of the
W. W. Trent clothing store, 539 E.
Liberty at 5 a.m. Monday, according to
police and store manager David Levy.
