Regents
suggest
'study of
state tax
structure

At what many administrators said was the shortest Regen-
ts meeting in memory, the University's governing board
passed a resolution yesterday to encourage faculty members
to research the state's tax structure and further reviewed the
University's Replacement Hospital Project.
Regent Deane Baker (R-Ann Arbor) proposed a revised
version of his November resolution calling for an in-
vestigation of state and local tax structures, including
property taxes, by an independent group of University
faculty and staff.
Baker said, "The University in its efforts to defeat the
Tisch tax bill (last fall) engendered in the public eye a
position that (the University opposes) property tax relief."
He said that a research group will "allow the University to
make a positive contribution" (towards tax relief
possibilities).
THE RESOLUTION specifically asks University President
Harold Shapiro to "consider how the University might, in an
independent and objective manner, use its capacity to assist

in developing a better understanding of the economic options
available to the state."
In other action, the Regents heard an analysis of the
Replacement Hospital Plan, a $210 million project to update
the medical campus.
Hospital planners told the Regents that four segments of
the project will have to be deferred to a later date, due to lack
of funds.
PRESIDENT SHAPIRO still supports the entire project,
but said "the economic situation in Michigan at this time
makes it impossible to build the approved project in its en-
tirety."
John Gronvall, dean of the medical school said, "although
the readjustments are extraordinarily painful . . . (the
revised plan) would work and basically allows us to accom-
plish our objectives."
Reminded that the project has been in planning stages sin-
ce 1969, Regent Robert Nederlander (D-Birmingham) said,

Bullets hit homes in
Stat e/'Packard area5

By JANET RAE
A bullet whizzing into her living
room startled a woman in the State/
Packard street area late Wednesday,
night in the first of three potshot in-
cidents. Ann Arbor resident James
Kirk was arrested minutes after the
last shots were fired in the 45-minute
spree.
The series of potshots began at
11:10 p.m. when police received a
report of a shot fired through a win-
dow in the 1700 block of Packard.
The bullet shot by the head of a 51-
year-old woman sitting in the second
floor apartment.
SIX MINUTES after that incident,
police were informed of someone in
a silver vehicle firing at a street
lamp near Burns Park.

More shots were reported at 11:47
p.m. when the occupants of a
residence on the 700 block of Arch
notified police that two bullets had
broken through their window.
Five minutes later, Officer Joe
Dye spotted a silver Nova stopped in
the middle of Brookwood Street near
White, He arrested 26-year-old Kirk,
who was alone in the car, and
recovered a .22 caliber revolver.
According to Sgt. Harold Tinsey,
Kirk plead not guilty yesterday af-
ternoon to the charge of carrying a
concealed weapon. Kirk said he had
the weapon because he was at a
friend's house earlier in the day
target shooting. He is being held
tpending the posting of a $1,000 bond.

COLLECTORS' ITEMS STOLEN FROM'U', O THER UNIVERSITIES

Rare
By PAM KRAMER
Police at the University of Illinois are
Molding about $100,000 worth of rare
books and papers, at least one third of
which were stolen from universities
around the country by a .Texas
bookstore owner.
1kobert Kindred, of Garland, Texas
pleaded guilty late last year to charges
of theft of $38,000 of articles from the U-
I library. He was sentenced to 30 mon-
ths probation and fined $2,500 and court
costs.
ABOUT $46,000 OF the remaining
stolen material has been traced to
Loyola University of New Orleans,
Oklahoma State University, Rice
University, Texas A&M University, and

book thefts not so rare

the University of Maryland.
The remaining $16,000 worth of
materials is still unidentified, accor-
ding to U-I investigator Murvin Valen-
tine. He said he is sending out descrip-
tions of the rest of the 138 items to any
university that requests them.
Kindred, owner of the Antique Print
Shop in Dallas, was arrested last sum-
mer for the theft, Valentine said.
"He bought some of the things, he has
receipts," he said. "But only some of the
things."
IF OTHER UNIVERSITIES want to
press charges against Kindred for the
theft of their property, they can do that,
Valentine said. So far only U-I has done
so.
"We've got a variety of things here.

You'd almost have to see it to believe
it," Valentine said, listing prints,
lithographs, plates, books, copies of
Harper's Weekly and individual pages
from books.
"We've got stuff on botanical things,
birds, fish, toadstools; you name it,
we've got it," he said.
"WE'RE JUST AT THE tip of things.
It's probably going to be at least July
before I release any of this stuff, Valen-
tine said. "It'll be September before I
can get this office cleaned out."
Richard Dougherty, Director of
Libraries at the University of
Michigan, said yesterday he will call U-
I officials for the list of descriptions.
Last week 10 books were discovered to
have been stolen here, and officials say
there may be more missing.
"We are making an effort to deter-
mine the extent of the loss," Dougherty
said. "We'll definitely make an inquiry
with the University of Illinois officials."
MATTHEW GREENBOUGH WAS

arraigned yesterday on charges of lr-
seny of more than $100 and possession
of stolen property worth more than
$100, Ann Arbor Det. Dan Branson said.
Police had issued a warrant for his
arrest last week as a suspect in the theft
of at least 10 rare books from Univer-
sity libraries, and Branson decided at
that time to allow Greenbough to
surrender himself in the presence of an
attorney.
The former University library em-
ployee waived a pre-trial examination
yesterday and was released on his own
recognizance, Branson said. The case
will go directly to circuit court later this
month.
"We're faced with a real dilemma (in
libraries), and I don't have a solution,"
Dougherty said. "The security of
materials is becoming an increasingly
serious problem. We've provided free
access (to these materials) as a
tradition in this country, but. . . one of
our missions is topreserve them."
