2 scouts and an Ann Arbor police officer
will check candy and other snacks with

also will check for treats that may have
been tampered with.
"WE ARE trying to extend a courtesy
to people so they at least have a chance
for us to check the candy," said Ann
Arbor Police Captain Kenneth Klinge,
*i who is in charge of the program.

City police have conducted
Halloween treat inspections the past
three years, Klinge said. During that
time there have been only minor in-

Eastern Michigan's Board of Regents

BOSTON (AP)- Richard Nixon
ranks as Halloween's favorite politician
by a wide margin over President
Reagan, judging by mask sales at a
Boston shop.
"We have sold retail or distributed
wholesale 800 Nixon masks since last
May, the start of the season," said
David Bertolino, 28, from his family's
Little Jack Horner Joke and Magic
Shop. "That's much more than we ex-
pected. We had to have more Nixon
masks aired in from France."
THE NIXON sales compare with 300

Reagan masks, and about the same
number for Elvis Presley, said Ber-
"We're really disappointed in
Reagan this year, considering he is the
new president," he said. "We're going
to have 400 or 500 left over."

STOCKHOLM, Sweden - Covered by machine
guns, a Swedish naval commander boarded a groun-
ded Soviet submarine yesterday and held "very
delicate" talks with its officers while Swedish and
Soviet warships keptitabs on each other.
As night fell, strong searchlights were turned on
and the atmosphere became tense as Swedish troops
and Soviet navy men silently watched each other
over gunsights at close range. One coast guard of-
ficer who came close to the sub said, "It looks so
unreal, it's like a war movie."
A SWEDISH OFFICER:. and an interpreter visited
the sub three times during the day but the Soviet
commander, Pyotr Gushin, refused requests to go
aboard a Swedish ship for questioning. The sub, with
an estimated 56 Soviets aboard, went aground,

Tuesday in a restricted area near the Karlskrona
naval base on the Baltic, 300 miles south of
Swedish officials responded by ordering increased
helicopter and jetfighter surveillance of the coast and
sealing off the area around Sweden's main Baltic
naval base - the object of what was believed to be the,
submarine's spy mission.
"We know they have ships waiting outside our
waters," said defense staff spokesman Bertil
Laggerwall. "We have troops watching the islands.
This is the first time Sweden, and perhaps the world,
has had a situation like this."
SWEDISH DEFENSE Minister Torsten Gustav-
sson called the incident the most serious one of its
kind since the end of World War II.

The crew of the sub, described by Swedish experts
who inspected it from the outside as specially
modified for intelligence missions, was believed to
have fuel, food and probably water for at least two
The sub also was in radio contact with its home
base and a Soviet destroyer hovering at the
territorial limit with a few other Warsaw Pact ships,
officials said. They added that the sub was able to
run its diesel engines to charge the ship's batteries.
Two battalions of elite Swedish marine anxd
paratroop commandos were stationed on nearby
islands to reinforce the iron ring around the sub. The
area, normally totally restricted for foreigners, was
also cordoned off for all Swedish civilians except
some reporters.

Break-in suspects caught
The Ann Arbor police arrested two
suspects in two separate campus-area
break-ins, they reported, recovering a
$400 gold bracelet and a bicycle. Robert
Bow, of Ann Arbor, was arraigned
yesterday on charges of possession and
concealing stolen property. He
allegedly broke into a room at the Law
Quadrangle, 551 S. State, Sept. 24,
taking the bracelet,. a briefcase, an AM-

FM radio, a cassette recorder, and a
gold chain. Police arrested him after
spotting the bracelet in the Ann Arbor
Gold Exchange, 216S. Fourth.
Lamark Curry, 28, of Ann Arbor, also
was arraigned on charges of possession
of stolen property. He allegedly stole a
bicycle after he unlawfully entered an
apartment building on the 900 block of
S. State Sept. 25. He was arrested after
the victim saw him riding the bike
through the Diag Oct. 7.


(UPI)- Voters in the


bankrupt Alpena school district ap-
proved yesterday a millage renewal
measure which will ensure . the
reopening of schools next month but.
turned down a proposal for additional
"We've declared that the renewal
measure passed by 1,050," said an elec-
tions official who noted 12,000 people
cast ballots. "The second measure went
down by 1,650."
THE SUCCESSFUL measure, reject-
ed by voters three times in the past, will
generate $14 million-enough to allow
the reopening of schools in the 6,800-
student district.
Failure of the additional mills, expec-
ted to bring in about $1.2 million, means

the schools will operate without buses,
athletics, elementary music, library
privileges, hot lunches and ex-
tracurricular activities, officials said.
About two-thirds of the district's
18,000 registered voters marked ballots
in the millage election. The renewal
measure had called for a continuation
of a $20.25 per $1,000 assessed valuation
and an increase of $3.45 per $1,000.
STATE OFFICIALS said the district,
which declared itself broke and closed
all its schools Oct. 16, can fulfill state
attendance requirements if it reopens
as early as Nov. 3-the tentative date
set for classes to start again if the
millage passed.
"I believe the Alpena schools will be
able to provide the 180 days and 900

hours of classroom instruction that the
state requires," said Phillip Runkel,
state superintendent of public instruc-
"I was hoping that the voters would
approve both millage requests," he
"It is now the responsibility of the
Alpena superintendent and the board of
education to pull the diverse factions in
the community together."
Yesterday's election was the first of
the four to split the request for renewed
and additional taxes. Superintendent
John Taylor said that was done not to
force rural voters to accept the ad-
ditional levyto support transportation,
but to appease those who only suppor-
ted the renewal.

literature, the experiments - involving
the injection of soap, perfume, and
other products directly into the eyes of
albino rabbits - cause inflammation of
the iris, inflammation of the conjun-
ctivae, and a great deal of pain to the
"Many toxicological technicians
have expressed strong feelings against
the test, especialy in those instances
where the rabbits scream when the test
substance is introduced into the eye,"
the literature reads.
EFFORTS TO stop the Draize Test
have met with some success. Revlon
Corporation recently donated $750,000
to The Rockefeller University to finance
a study to develop alternatives to
animal testing of cosmetics.
Liska-Stevens said the inclination of
researchers to use animals in their ex-
periments is an extension of the
"Judaeo-Christian ethic" on animals,
which infers that animals are here to
serve humans.
Scientists are trained to be rational

and logical, That's good," she said.
"They need that quality to be scientists
...you wouldn't want a scientist who
tries to make his research come out one
way or another.
"BUT GIVEN that general training, I
have found an attitude among the scien-
tific community that animals don't
have intrinsic moral or legal rights to
exist on their own - they are seen as
being here to serve humans. Because
of that, not much value is being placed
on the animals' lives. As a result, they
are overused in research," she said. '
"That's what the debate is really
about - not over the use of animals for
research. If you must use animals, go
ahead and do it, but if you don't ab-
solutely have to,, make use of cell
cultures or other techniques instead,"
she added.
Liska-Stevens said, however, that the
University's animal care facilities
"passed with flying colors" when the
ULAM procedural manual was looked
at by Humane Society authorities.
"WE HAVE A program we can be

proud of," Cohen agreed.
ULAM is staffed by Cohen, his
assistant, and four veterinarians who
are training to work in the field of
laborator animal husbandry.
Veterinarians are on call 24 hours a
day, 365 days a year to answer queries
from researchers. Researchers in
University laboratories are expected to
monitor the health of their subjects
daily. In addition, ULAM staff members
visit each site at least once a month to
check on the animals and their habitat.'
Although a few of the animals are
saved after one experiment for use in
another experiment, most of the
animals are euthanized (put to sleep) at
the conclusion of the experiment. Their
remains are then cremated, said

"The animals we get (from animal
shelters) would have been put to sleep
eventually anyway," Cohen said. "But
these animals, by participating in ex-
periments, make a great contribution
to medical science."
Of the 15 million animals put to sleep
every year in animal shelters, 200,000
are used in animal research, he said.
ULAM facilities are inspected
regularly by state officials and U.S.
