8 geography
professors
relocated

By BARRY WITT
New homes within the University have
been found for eight of the nine tenured
geography professors and the ninth has
decided to leave the University, LSA
Dean Peter Steiner reported to the
faculty Senate Assembly yesterday.
Whether the six geography
professors will be located in LSA depar-
tments and whether Georgraphy
Chairman John Nystuen will move to
the College of Architecture and Urban
Planning are still subject to approval
by the University's executive officers
and the Regents.
PROF. GEORGE Kish was awarded
the William Hobbs Chair in geography,
and will remain a professor at large in
LSA.
Prof. James Clarkson left the
University effective Jan. 5. Clarkson
said last night he chose to leave and
that his case had been dealt with in a
"reasonable and equitable" manner.

The moves represent another step in
the University's handling of the
delicate discontinuance issue, which
began last year when the University
administration announced the depar-
tment was under review for
elimination.
INeACCORDANCE with the Regents'
guidelines for eliminating academic
departments, the administration
promised to make "good faith efforts"
to relocate the tenured faculty merfi-
bers after the Regents voted to discon-
tinue the program last June.
The three non-tenured assistant
geography professors were told,
however, that their contracts probably
would not be extended.
Two of the assistant professois have
already resigned, Steiner said, and the
third - Prof. Kathleen Brown - is in
her last semester at the University.

killed
PARIS - Assistant U.S. military at-
tache Lt. Col. Charles Robert Ray, 43,
was assassinated yesterday by a
lurking gunman who police said fired a
single shot into Ray's forehead and fled
as the victim collapsed on a Paris
sidewalk.
The U.S. ambassador to France,
Even Griffith Galbraith, said the gun-,
man was "probably a professional azid-
undoubtedly an experienced killer."
POLICE SAID Ray was shot abut 9
a.m. (3 a.m. EST) as he walked alone to
his parked car near his apartment in a
fashionable district.
In Washington, President Reagan
decried the assassination as an act of
international terrorism, saying Ray
"gave his life in the line of duty as
surely as if he had fallen in battle.
The wanton act of his murderers rein-
forces our determination to stamp out
international terrorism and prevent
similar tragedies in the future,"
Reagan said.

City's 3 A&P stores to close

By PERRY CLARK
Officials of the Great Atlantic and
Pacific Tea Company confirmed
yesterday that three local A&P super-
markets will close their doors for the
last time Jan. 30.
Mike Rourke, A&P vice president of
communication and corporate affairs,
said the shutdowns were part of a
nationwide effort to revitalize the com-
pany. "These stores were on a list to be
evaluated, and the decision has been'

made that they will be closed," Rourke
said.
The stores are located in the
Plymouth Road Mall, the Maple Village
Shopping Center, and at the corner of S.
Industrial Highway and Stadium
Boulevard.
THE GIANT supermarket chain will
continue to operate some stores in
Michigan, Rourke said. He would not'
speculate on whether any of those
might be candidates for future closing.

Rourke said the Ann Arbor stores
were unprofitable, and current
economic conditions were aggravating
the problem. "The stores just haven't
been able to build up volume," he said.
Local A&P officials said at the begin-
ning of January that the supermarkets
wold be closing Jan. 30. When finally
contacted in New Jersey, company of-
ficials said the decision to close the Ann
Arbor stores was being reviewed.
Local officials and employees con-

tinued to maintain that the stores would
close Jan. 30, but Rourke would not
make that confirmation until yester-
day.
Employees of the stores will be tran-
sferred to other stores in the state on a
seniority basis, Rourke said. Store
managers in Ann Arbor have been
reluctant to comment, but Jim Crowe of
the S. Industrial A&P said about 40 em-
ployees there would be either tran-
sferred or laid off.

The arctic temperatures of the past two
weeks have resulted in a rash of conflic-
ts betwen local tenants and landlords,
as renters accuse their lessors of
negligence in fixing frozen pipes and
crippled heating systems.
According to Gwynne Kostin, a staff
counselor at the Ann Arbor Tenant's
Union, an overwhelming number of
calls she received came from people
who either "don't have heat or don't
have enough heat."
KOSTIN SAID that during her first
three hours at the AATU, which
reopened yesterday after being .closed
due to lack of funds, she handled com-
plaints from at least 25 tenants who

were experiencing weather-related
housing problems.
"One woman told me she had no heat
in her. bedroom and was afraid of
hypothermia," Kostin said. "She kept
her beer in the bedroom closet because
it was so cold."
While most of the complaints regar-
ded heating problems, frozen water
pipes and landlord "inaccessibility"
also troubled many residents, Kostin
said.
"I GUESS people are having a lot of
problems getting in touch with their
landlords," Kostin said, adding that she
spoke with one man who has not had
running water in his apartment since

Hunched over a blackjack hand,
Steve Goldberg waited nervously for
his hit card. When the nine of hearts.
landed to complement his twelve,
Goldberg let out a little whoop of
triumph.
His excited reaction typified that
of a Las Vegas gambler, but he was
far from the famed Nevada resort.
Actually, this University freshman
was one of several hundred en-
thusiasts laying down their chips at
the local Millionaire's Party.
THE THREE-DAY affair opened
on Sunday evening and continues
tonight from 4 p.m. until 2 a.m. at
the Second Chance night club as a
benefit to raise money for the
Michigan Theatre. Ann Arbor
received a special permit for the
event from the State of Michigan,
authorizing legalized gambling.
"This is better than Las Vegas!"
exulted senior Larry Schroeder,
taking time out from his studies to
lose money for a worthy cause.
All house winnings go to the
Michigan Community Theatre

Foundation, a non-profit
organization which supports over
forty local groups, including the Ann
Arbor Chamber Orchestra and the
Classical Film Theatre.
SECOND CHANCE'S transforma-
tion into a two-storied Monte Carlo
came off very well, thanks largely to
the excellent cooperation between
theatre and night club workers, ac-
cording to party coordinator
Stephen Pysz. He especially praised
Karen Young and Bob Davies, of the
University's Office of Major Events,
for their assistance.
By using rule sheets and "spot-
ters" checking for infringements,
MEO party organizers attempted to
ensure fairness and efficiency in all
the games.
Pysz researched various fun-
draising techniques for several mon-
ths and finally decided, along with
Ann Arbor Mayor Louis Belcher and
Second Chance owner John Carver,
that the night club's "classic at--
mosphere made it the most ap-
propriate location.

LOCAL TOW truck operators repor-

where almost 200 cars were serviced,
there were delays of up to eight hours

Stiglmeier thinks some of the laws on the books in Albany
are "ludicrous." For example, there are laws against hit-
ching a mule to a tree, beating a rug in any vacant lot east
of Allen Street and planting or maintaining a cottonwood
tree. And then there's the law expressly permitting killing
any dog found running around the city in the summer
without a muzzle. Stiglmeier is working to have antiquated
laws stricken from the books. But the job is huge, con-
sidering that Albany has the oldest city charter in the
United States. He says the codification process has been in
the works for several years and even the new editions will
be un to date only through 197. Some of the old laws are

another," she said. But he wasn't-and neither was the
court. Carrie Ann Boivin's first piece of official mail was a
summons to appear April 1 for jury duty at the Middlesex
County Courthouse in East Cambridge, Mass. "Promptly at
8:30 a.m.," the letter said. Wilfred Boivin handled the of-
ficial form for his daughter. After checking the appropriate
box to indicate why she could not comply with the sum-
mons, Boivin added, "She's only three. You can't have her
now, but maybe you can summon her when she gets a bit
older." Paul Carr, operations manager in the office said he
has seen about a dozen similar mistakes in the last few
years. "Usually the date of birth may be off only by one

Restroom runaround
A sign in Sacramento, Ca. pointing to a state Capitol
restroom is no longer being hung beneath the portrait of
former Gov. Edmund Brown Sr. The sign was removed by
the state General Services Department, which works for
Gov. Edmund Brown Jr. The younger Brown mentioned to
reporters Jan. 8 that his father had complained about the
sign. "There was enough criticism that we've removed"
the sign, Dale Dwyer, consulting architect for the depar-
tment, said yesterday. After some painting, he said, thei
sign will be put back up on the wall of the third floor, half-
