Show must
go 'on in

ATLANTA (AP)-Acknowledging his "concern"
over the threat of another killing, Sammy Davis Jr.
said he and Frank Sinatra were going ahead with a
benefit last night to raise money for the effort to
solve the slayings of 20 black children.
The Atlanta Journal, meanwhile, reported that
hundreds of files of police officers who quit or were
fired in the past eight to 10 years have been
examined by members of a special police task for-
ce. It has been widely theorized that someone acting
or looking like a policeman may be responsible for
the killings.
DAVIS PREDICTED Monday that the concert
and associated contributions would raise about
$140,000. City officials say the investigation is
costing about $200,000 a month more than the
amount budgeted for police expenditures.
A person claiming responsibility for the slayings
wrote letters to The Atlanta Constitution and The

Atlanta Journal scorning the concert and saying:
"Consider ... while everybody's watching Sammy
and Frank, who'll be watching the children?"
A spokesman for Davis, publicist Billy Rowe, said
the entertainer was troubled by the threat but
decided not to "serve" the letter-writer by can-
celing the concert.
"He's concerned about it, but he's not going to let
it stop him," Rowe said. "Too many people are
depending on us."
Extra police were assigned to duty both inside
and outside the Atlanta Civic Center for the concert.
But Angelo Fuster, a spokesman for Mayor
Maynard Jackson, said the increased security was
being provided only because of Davis' and Sinatra's
presence, not because of fears that someone would
be harmed.
Tickets sold for $25 and $100 apiece, and the con-
cert was sold out a week in advance, according to'
Beverly Henry of the city's Cultural Affairs Office.

Although occasionally another
museum will design an exhibit, they are
generally organized and produced by
Butsch, who says he enjoys equally the
art, history, and research that goes into
each exhibit. "To build a diorama is a
frame of mind, an exercise in tex-

tures," he said.
Due to a shortage of funds- and per-
sonnel, there are few temporary
exhibits at the museum. However, But-
sch says he is kept busy due to the fact
that the exhibits constantly change
"slowly and steadily."
Butsch also teaches a course at the
University on special problems in
museum methodology. Students such
as medical illustrators learn the art of
three-dimensional representation from
The roots of Butsch's interest in
dioramas goes back as far as his
childhood. "I always liked to make
things. Lots of kids do," Butsch ex-
plained. For him, this childhood
fascination turned into a lifetime

Reagan may loosen
reins on CIA activity

Compiled from Associated Press and
United Press International reports
Lawmakers discuss
property tax reform plan
LANSING-Legislative leaders huddled with Gov. William Milliken early
yesterday to discuss yet another version of the governor's property tax
reform plan, but apparently made little progress.
The same lawmakers later met with Detroit Mayor Coleman Young, who
hopes to toss in a city-saving income tax increase with any property tax
revision placed before voters on a planned May 19 ballot.
Democrats, who complained the Milliken plan favors wealthier
homeowners, are now working on a proposal which would cut property taxes
by 50 percent while hiking the sales tax to 5.5 percent. Their plan also slices
local income taxes in 16 Michigan cities in half.
Gas rate increase granted
LANSING-Michigan Power Co., plagued by declining income, won a
negotiated $2.57 million gas rate increase from the state Public Service
Commission yesterday which will cost its average customer about $13.41 an-
A spokesman for the Three Rivers-based firm called the increase a
welcome one but said it may have come too late in the heating season to do
the company much immediate good.
The increase, which will average about three percent, was under the $3.1
million ultimately sought by Michigan Power in the rate case it filed in
August, 1980.
Hijackers advance deadline
to pressure Pakistan
DAMASCUS, Syria-Hijackers threatening to blow up a Pakistani jetliner
with 103 hostages aboard extended their deadline to 7 a.m. today in a bid to
pressure Pakistan into releasing scores of political prisoners.
Military sources said Pakistan was set to release at least some prisoners
and fly them to Damascus in exchange for the hostages, including three
However,the sources said no agreement had yet been reached on the
number of prisoners to be released. The hijakers have demanded that 45
political prisoners in Pakistan be freed.
The hostages, meanwhile, were described by Pakistani officials as on the
verge of "cracking up" in the ninth day of what has become the longest
hijacking on record.
Soviet Union, Poland
to j oi in military exercises
WARSAW, Poland-The Soviet Union and Poland yesterday announced
joint Warsaw Pact military exercises will begin in Poland later this month.
The announcement followed a one-hour strike in Lod, the first major work
stoppage in more than a month in this Communist nation beset by economic
and labor troubles.
The Polish news agency PAP said the exercises would take place in
Poland, East Germany, Czechoslovakia and the Soviet Union in the second
half of March. Some Western observers here said the exercises were expec-
ted at this time of the year, but U.S. State Department officials last week ex-
pressed concern about reports of such maneuvers.
The announcementsaid the aim of the exercises was to "coordinate and
improye cooperation of senior staffs of fraternal armies and navies during
joint military operations." The exercises also were announced in Moscow.
Postage up March 22
WASHINGTON-The Postal Service board of governors yesterday raised
the cost of a first-class letter to 18 cents effective March 22, but it wanted
more and took the action under protest because of the urgent need for
Board chairman-Robert Hardesty said the board plans to put the new rates
into effect under protest and send the case back to the Postal Rate Com-
mission to reconsider a request for a 20-cent stamp and other increases.
The new rates apply to a broad range of mail, including postcards that now
will cost 12 cents.
Even with the increase, the Postal Service still expects to lose money and
seek another rate increase.
UAW may rejoin AFL-CIO
DETROIT-Top executives of the 1.2 million member United Auto
Workers union took steps yesterday toward ending the union's 12-year
separation from the AFL-CIO.
The UAW's International Executive Board voted unanimously to poll
nearly 3,000 union delegates across the country before May 1 for authority to

reaffiliate with the central labor organization.
UAW President Douglas Fraser said he believes the delegates will accept
the move, which would add strength as well to the AFL-CIO's 14.6 million

mail-openings, surreptitious entry, and
electronic surveillance directed at
Americans without evidence of
criminal activity.
BIDEN, A MEMBER of the Senate
Intelligence Committee, said he was
"very disappointed" to hear of the
proposals. He said he understood they
would "re-introduce the CIA into
domestic surveillance activities."
In the briefing at CIA headquarters in
suburban Washington, D.C., Inman
said terrorist activities required
reexamination of the inhibitions on in-
telligence gathering in the U.S. Inman
said terrorist activities have stepped up
since 1978 when then-President Jimmy
Carter signed an executive order
limiting the CIA's ability to conduct
domestic investigations.
Inman predicted that President
Reagan will be asked to relax those
restrictions and that Reagan will go
"I EXPECT there will be some
changes because of changes in the
world we are operating in," the admiral
said in an hour-long session. The last
CIA press conference was held more
than a decade ago.
Sen. Barry Goldwater (R-Ariz. )
chairman of the Senate Intelligence
Committee, said the proposed revisions
were under study and that the CIA
would brief members of his panel on
Sources said the new intelligence
proposal is designed not only to curb
terrorism but also to improve leak in-
vestigations and the CIA ability to

Faber said the current halfway house
program is unacceptable. But, he ad-
ded, "I don't want to see the halfway
house concept die." He said the halfway
house idea, properly organized and
supervised, is a good one.
Both candidates are concerned with
government efficiency. Belcher said he
has streamlined city government by
cutting city employees from more than
1,200 in 1978 to 826 at present. He also
remarked that he has shortened City
Council meetings from six hours, at the
beginning of his first term, to about
three hours now.
