Hermitage houses

fundraiser

By ANNE MYTYCH
The Hermitage, a 65-year-old Ann
Arbor mansion, will serve as the center
of a fund raising "Decorator's
Showcase" for the University's School
of Art during the next few weeks.
The house, which was once a frater-
nity house and is currently for sale, has
been redecorated by a number of Ann
Arbor interior design firms for the
showcase. Admission will be charged
and all proceeds from the show will go
to the art school's Guy Palazzola
Memorial Scholarship Fund.
PALAZZOLA was a University art
professor and associate dean of the art
school. Palazzola, who died in 1978, was
most famous for his nationally broadcast
painting demonstrations.
Marguerite Oliver, a former student
of Palazzola's organized the
redecoration of the Hermitage back in
October because there were no scholar-
ships for the art school and she wanted
to organize a general.scholarship fund.
The interior design firms have been
working on remodeling the inside of the
house for the past few months. A wide
variety of antiques and art work, along
with the newly redecorated rooms, will
be included in the show.
ORIGINAL artwork by professor
Palazzola will also be exhibited in the
Hermitage. The antiques and artwork
are valued at more than $1 million and
will be on sale during the showcase.
The Hermitage, which, is located at
1808 Hermitage Road, is included on a
list of some 40 historic Ann Arbor lan-
dmarks, all of which are a part of the
Washtenaw-Hill Historical District.
The house is also included on an Ann
Arbor historic house tour.
Under the direction of University art
Prof. Dwayne Overmeyer, students in
the Art Production Workshop are
preparing a brochure for the showcase,
along with designer admissioni tickets.
Floor plans created by University in-
terior design students will appear in the
brochures.

resident June Handy and Professor
Palazzol'a's widow Louise, Oliver sear-
ched for a house to develop for fund
raising.
They finally found the Hermitage,
which was up for sale by its owner
Jesse Gorden, a University professor of
social work. The house was previously
owned by the Phi Sigma Delta frater-
nity.
Oliver then sent letters to interior
design firms from Ann Arbor to invite
them to help re-design the Hermitage.
They began their work in late October.

The 30-room house, nearly finished with
its redecoration, will go on public
display today.
There will also be floral arrangemen-
ts and sculptures at the showcase. The
theme of thesValentine's Day opening is
"arts and flowers."
THE SHOWCASE, which will con-
tinue for a month, will be open from 10
a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Satur-
day, and from noon to 4 p.m. on Sun-
days. Admission is $5 for adults and
$2.50 for senior citizens, students, and
children. All proceeds will go to the

Guy Palazzola Scholarship Fund.
At various times throughout the length
of the showcase there will be live music
and cooking demonstrations.
Beverages, snacks, and lunch will be
served daily in a cafe in the garden
room.
In 1978 there was a similar
"Decorator's Showcase" at the Hoover
Mansion on Washtenaw Ave. That
showcase netted proceeds of $75,000,
which was used for the construction of
five intensive care units at the Univer-
sity's C.S. Mott Children's Hospital.

IN BRIEF
Compiled from Associated Press and
United Press International reports
Polish regime guards
against protest
WARSAW, Poland- The martial law regime deployed tanks, armored
cars, water cannon and heavy police patrols yesterday to guard against
possible protests as military rule entered its third month in Poland.
The communist authorities also slapped a 25-year jail sentence on a for-
mer official convicted of spying for the CIA and rejected proposals to let
Solidarity chief Lech Walesa attend the christening of his seventh child.
Beefed-up police units checked drivers' identity cards in Warsaw, and ap-
peared in greater numbers than usual on the streets. Hundreds of police
vehicles wound through Warsaw Thursday and Friday evenings.
Travelers from the Baltic port of Gdansk said police threw a tight ring of
trucks and water cannon around the monument to workers outside the Lenin
shipyards, where the now-suspended independent union Solidarity was born
18 months ago.
Pope celebrates Mass in Nigeria
ONITSHA, Nigeria- Pope John Paul II went to Nigeria's Christian hear-
tland yesterday, a land once ravaged by the Biafran civil war, and told an
audience of 1 million youths to reject birth control and abortion in West
Africa's most populous nation.
On the second day of an eight-day tour of Africa, his first foreign trip since
last May's attempt on his life, the pontiff arrived by helicopter at an open
field recently cleared from the tropical rain forest.
In his sermon, the pontiff called for "unity, compassion and forgiveness"
among Nigeria's 95 million people, 30 million of whom are Moslem. Of the
nation's 18 million Christians, 5 million to 6 million are Roman Catholic.
Many Nigerians practice various forms of spirit and ancestor worship.
John Paul had a lesson in good citizenship for them.
"Identify the ills of your society, such as bribery and corruption, the em-
bezzlement of government or company funds," he said.
Jurors inspect Atlanta bridge
ATLANTA- Jurors inspected a two-lane river bridge yesterday where
accused killer Wayne Williams allegedly threw his victims into the muddy
waters of the Chattahoochee River.
Williams, a 23-year-old freelance photographer, is standing trial for the
murders of Jimmy Ray Payne, 21, and Nathaniel Cater, 27, two of 28 young
Atlanta blacks abducted and slain during a 22-month period. Testimony has
linked him to 10 additional slayings.
The jurors made the trip to the bridge at the request of the defense, which
apparently hopes to prove that prosecution witnesses could not have seen all
they claimed to have seen because of underbrush, height of bridge railings
and other factors.
South African blacks march
in honor of white union leader
JOHANNESBURG, South Africa- Some 2,000 defiant blacks marched
five miles through Johannesburg's wealthy white suburbs yesterday to bury
the white man who helped organize their union and was found hanged in a
jail cell.
Prime Minister P.W. Botha's security forces made no move to intervene,
though the two-hour march was illegal and unprecedented under the white-
minority government's strict security laws.
"I am stunned. It's incredible," said Aubrey Aggett, 69, father of 28-year-
old Neil Aggett, the first white to die in detention in a South African jail.
Some of the marchers, walking ahead of the funeral cortege, changed
"Botha is a terrorist!" and tore down election posters for Botha's National
Party, which is in the middle of a municipal election campaign in Johan-
nesburg.

Minorities must pool clout, speaker says

By NATHANIEL WARSHAY
Minorities must consolidate their economic clout in
order to gain equality in the American economic
system, according to Rev. George Riddick, vice
president of the Operation PUSH (People United to
Save Humanity).
Riddick, speaking Friday night to a group of 25
people at the University's Trotter House, urged
blacks to pool their resources and use their combined
economic influence to win a greater share of influen-
ce in U.S. corporations.
"IT MAKES little sense for 28 million people
(America's blacks) not to renegotiate their position.
with the nation," Riddick said. He said that the $145
billion. spent annually by American blacks in the

trillion-dollar American economy should be used as a
bargaining tool in the effort to gain power with U.S.
corporations.
American corporate leaders still discriminate
against blacks, Riddick claimed, as is evidenced by
the small number of blacks in high-level
management positions of major U.S. corporations.
He said there were only two blacks in positions of
treasurer or greater importance in all of the cor-
porations on the Fortune 500 list.
He also cited the example of the Atlanta-based
Coca-Cola corporation, which he said has a large por-
tion of its sales in black communities, but which has
no franchises owned by blacks.
THE SOLUTION for this inequity, he said, is the

pooling of money in savings and loans. In this way,
the savings of blacks can be borrowed by other blacks
and reinvested in the black community.
Until the black community can achieve economic
equality through this pooling, however, Riddick said
he agrees that measures such as affirmative action
are necessary. Affirmative action, and other
programs that grant special assistance to minorities,
cannot serve as a final solution to discrimination, he
said, but can help in the interim until blacks can gain
equality.
Riddick also criticized the Reagan administration
for the emphasis he said it places on military spen-
ding -at the expense of social programs which
traditionally helped minorities.

Med school enrollment cuts stir doubt

(Continued from Page 1)
he expects no minority student reduc-
tions in the total enrollment.
According to Sylvester Berki, chair-
man of the School of Public Health's
Department of Medical Care
Organization, the reductions "will have

no effect on health care or health care
costs in Michigan."
Chip Truscon, a former member of
the Comprehensive Health Planning
Commission of Southeastern Michgan,
a citizens's advisory council, said that
since the proportion of physicians in the
United States will continue to be one of
the highest in the world, "there won't
be any effect on the rural or urban
areas."
ACCORDING to Truscon, "the main
problem is a maldistribution of doc-
tors," adding that national studies show
that physicians tend to congregate in
the suburbs, neglecting rural and big
city areas.
Truscon suggested as an answer to
the maldistribution problem that
physicians should be told where to prac-
tice as part of their licensure.

"There's no room for free enterprise
in medicine," Truscon said. "It's about
time physicians gave up their monopoly
on truth, justice, and the American
way. they have an obligation to the
community since their education is in-
directly subsidized by society."
Truscon maintains that while the
reduction may be unappealing to many
medical educators, "the enrollment
cutbacks is a cosmetic change of a
political and economic necessity."
ACCORDING to experts in medical
education, economic necessity may
also start a trend into the more highly
specialized medical fields, thus in-
creasing health care costs.
They say that in order to pay for
today's soaring tuitions, students may
be forced to choose the high-paying
specialities rather than the less
lucrative fields that are more
desperately needed, such as family
medicine.
"That trend," said state senator and
physician Edward Pierce, "is already
here. Higher education is pricing itself
right out of the market. Society has to
be more responsible for the education
of physicians and all professionals."
Dean Gronvall responded, "I like that
idea, but every influential force is going
the other way."
