Jury acquits
bartender of
sale to minors

The Michigan Daily-Saturday, January 23, 1982-Page 3
Prosecutors link ten
deaths to Williams

By HARLAN KAHN
A 15th District Court jury Thursday
acquitted Susan Sterner, a 27-year-old
bartender at the Pretzel Bell, 120 E.
Liberty St., on charges of selling in-
toxicants to a minor.
The case is the latest in a series of
police crackdowns on the.illegal sale of
alcohol to minors which began in 1980.
STERNER, A junior in LSA, served a
mug of Stroh's beer to an 18-year-old
Boy Scout Explorer working for police
as a volunteer.
Sterner said she was in favor of the
law being enforced, but she was "not
thrilled with the way it is enforced."
She added, however, that she felt she
was "fairly acquitted."
Defense Attorney Stanley Pollack
argued that police had failed to prove
that the beer was alcoholic as defined
by the stature prohibiting its sale to
minors. Pollack introduced pharmacist
Jill White's testimony that alcohol can-
not be detected by taste.
"The jury can't assume that it was
alcohol," Pollack said. The only

evidence cited was that the police of-
ficer said it (the contents of the mug)
tasted like beer.
THIS WAS the seventh acquittal in a
row, and according to Pollack, "shows
the (police) method is not very
popular."
However, Police Sgt. J. Miller said
the method is both "viable and effec-
tive." He said the method would
probably continue. "The fact that the
jury acquits someone doesn't make
them less guilty, as far as I'm concer-
ned."
"Sue did the utmost and the jury un-
derstood that," said Clint Castor, owner
of the Pretzel Bell. He explained that
the 'Pretzel Bell clientele is
predominately over 25 and that they
"don't need to make money off of
minors."
Of the total cases presented, eight
have ended in acquittal and one person
has been convicted on charges of fur-
nishing alcohol to a minor. Four others
have accepted civil infractions of $150
fines and 50 hours of community work.
Five more cases are still pending.

ATLANTA (UPI) - Prosecutors in
the Wayne Williams murder trial said
yesterday they have evidence linking
Williams with 10 additional slayings
and that blood from two of the victims
was found in the suspect's car.
The disclosure was the most sen-
sational to date in the 4-week-old trial
and came while the jury was out of the
room.
ONE OF THE additional 10 was not
originally on the list of 28 slayings of
young Atlanta blacks.
Williams, a 23-year-old black
freelance photographer, is on trial for
the murders of Jimmy Ray Payne, 21,
and Nathaniel Cater, 27.
But Assistant District Attorney Joe
Drolet told Superior Court Judge
Clarence Cooper the prosecution was
prepared to offer evidence linking
Williams with 10 other victims.
DROLET THEN reeled off the names
of Alfred Evans, 14; Eric Mid-
dlebrooks, 15; Charles Stevens, 12;
Lubie Geter, 14; Terry Pue, 15; Patrick
Baltazar, 11; Larry Rogers, 21; Joseph
Bell, 15; John Porter, 30; and William
Barrett, 17.
Defense lawyer Alvin Binder argues
that evidence about the other victims
would be highly prejudicial and would
result in a mistrial. "The Supreme
Court will reverse your honor" if the
evidence is allowed, he said.
Binder said that in order to introduce
evidence of uncharged crimes,
prosecutors first must prove that Cater
and Payne died as a result of foul play
and must show a criminal connection
betwen Williams and their deaths, Bin-
der said.
"YOU'VE GOT to have a body that
met death by foul play, and you have to
have a connection between this defen-
dant and- foul play, and they don't have
it," he said.
Binder argued that investigators had
not found a pattern in the 28 task force

cases.
"I don't think there's a law enfor-
cement officer in Georgia or
Washington that would tell you all were
killed by one person," he said. "There
is not a pattern."
DROLET SAID prosecutors have
evidence that fibers similar to those
found in Williams' home and car were
found on the bodies of 10 other young
blacks.
In two of the 10 cases, blood found in
Williams' car matched the blood type of
the victims, he said, and in three casespo e u rsf nd wt s es ho old
prosecutors foun witnessesho would
say they saw Williams with the victims.
Drolet said prosecutors want to_ in-~
troduce the evidence "for the limited
purpose of showing, scheme, pattern,
frame of mind, and identity" in the
Cater and Payne cases.

harvests, a steady supply of oil imports,
coupled with conservation at home, and
the economic recession that stifled
bAmericans' demand for almost
everything.
Few manufacturers or retailers were
able to raise prices very much on goods
they were already having trouble
selling.
THE HIGHEST double-digit rates
among the major cities were San Fran-
disco and Minneapolis-St. Paul, where
the rate was 15.3 percent in sharp con-
trast to economically depressed areas
where retailers found it harder to mark
up prices. Prices in Houston, where
unemployment was 3.2 percent, were
up 10.2 percent in 1981.
Last month, while the national unem-
ployment rate was 8.9 percent, unem-
ployment in areas around auto plants,
vas{a high as .13 percent and 14 per-
nt.
By region, the Northeast had a 9 per-
cent inflation rate and the North-Cen-

tral states a 7.1, the South a 10 percent
rate, and the West a'9.8 percent, the
report said.
FEATURES OF the CPI report:
Medical care costs climbed 12.5 per-
cent, the highest since 1947, compared
with the 10 percent rise in 1980.
*,'Food prices rose 4.3 percent, less
than half the 10.1 percent gain of 1980.
" Housing costs, pushed upward by
high home-loan rates but held down by
stable prices, rose 10.2 percent, down
from 13.7 percent the year before.
Transportation costs, helped by much
smaller fuel-price increases, rose 11
percent, down from 14.7 percent.
" Entertainment prices increased 7.2
percent, down from 9.6 percent, and
clothing costs rose just 3.6 percent,
down from 6.8 percent.
Overall consumer prices rose 0.4 per-
cent in December - an annual rate oft
5.2 percent if the same incrase should
be repeated for 12 straight months, the
report said yesterday.

By DAN GRANTHAM
West Quad residents won't have to
wait in long meal lines- next fall,
because of last week's Regents' ap-
proval of a $182,000 cafeteria
renovation project to install a
"scramble system" this summer.
The renovation will expand the
East dining room to make space for
the scramble system, which is
already in use at most cafeterias.
The scramble system has a different
counter for each course, and
replaces the line system of one coun-
ter for all courses.
ASSOCIATE Director of Housing
Norm Sunstad said the scramble
system would result in shorter lines
at West4Quad.
Due to the renovations, West quad
will be closed during the spring and
summer terms. Students attending

classes will be housed at Markley
Hall instead.
Funding for the project will come
from a reserve fund made up of a
percentage of room and board
money, previously set aside for dor-
mitory renovations. The renovations
will not mean an increase in current
student fees, Sunstad said.
The scramble system was first in-
troduced at Bursley Hall in 1968.
Regent Thomas Roach said that the
system was favorably received at
Bursley.
But when Regents announced
plans to implement the system at
Markley, they met some "emotional
opposition" from a "vocal minority
of residents," Roach said. The
Regents approved the project
despite the opposition, he said, and it
is now used at many other dorms.

told of the firings and refused further
comment. "I'll check it out on Mon-'
day," he said last night.
Medical Records Director Holly said .
he resigned because of conflicts over
the reorganization plans.
BEFORE THE reorganization
Health Service policy emphasized
quality of medical care, Holly said.
That policy has now shifted to "policing
of services," he added.
"I think we're really screwing the
students royally, and I have violent
disagreement with the way (Health
Service administrators) handle (em-
ployees and patients," Holly said.
"There is no good monitor in place to
evaluate the quality of care being
delivered, even though on paper there's
an appeals board," Holly said.
Health Sevice Director Dr. Caesar
Briefer said this week that Holly
resigned because "he didn't have as
great an interest in medical librarian-
ship."
Former Health Service Assistant
Administrator Dana Milla submitted
his resignation approximately two
months ago to take a position at North-
western University in Evanstan, Ill.
Several Health Service employees
reported that Mills also resigned
because of his problems with the

is usually "dull" for the hotel and
restaurant business, he said.
"That's why we wanted the Super
Bowl here, to stimulate business at a
time when it is usually slow, Moses
said.
Weber's Inn in Ann Arbor is offering
special accommodations for its Super
Bowl guests, according to owner Her-
man Weber. The hotel has chartered 10
buses and plans to shuttle people to the
game for $20 round trip, which includes

a box lunch. All but a few seats have
been filled, Weber said.
Super Bowl weekend is similar to
University football Saturdays, except is
longer, Weber said. "Since the game is
on Sunday instead of Saturday, the
people are staying an extra day, which
is good for business," he said.
Although the Ann Arbor Inn has
received seveal cancellations,
Assistant Manager Kevin Flannigan
said he doesn't think any major can-
cellations will result from the weather
and anticipates filling all 200 rooms at
the Inn.

last night. He added that his move-

Professors lament LSA faculty cuts

pressure will be given extra faculty
positions, Steiner said.'
PROFESSOR John Knott, chairman
of the English department was acting
dean of the College of LSA last Spring
and worked with the LSA Executive
Committee in the drafting of the faculty
reduction plan.
"I believe that it was a careful and
necessary response to the budget cuts

imposed on the college," Knott said.
Acknowledging that the English depar-
tment stands to lose five faculty
positions, Knott said, "It will hurt in our
teaching effort, but I believe we can
plan to make these reductions in
carefully considered ways over a
period of time."
Reflecting his resignation to the
reality of the University's financial

woes, Professor Frank Casa, chairman'
of the department of romance
languages, said that the faculty reduc-
tion plan is "the inevitable thing with
which we all must cooperate. We sim-
ply have to go along with it."
