Arthur Arroyo, accused of setting fire
to the University's Economics Building
Christmas Eve, was a "nice guy, sort of
shy," and a "complete loner" with a
bad temper, according to those who
lived and worked with him.
Co-workers at the University's School
of Public Health, where Arroyo worked
as a secretary, said Arroyo was a nice
guy until he caused a "big uproar"
there last October.
"A COUPLE OF TIMES he got mad
and cussed everybody out," said
stockkeeper Davee Askew. That time,
things got out of hand. Employees
called campus security, and Arroyo
was later fired.
Arroyo was in a high-pressure
position, Askew said, and his anger
may have been provoked. "The tur-
nover was great in his job," she said.
Senior clerk Pat Lanker said Arroyo
had excellent clerical skills and was
"very nice" to her. She added,
however, that "he had a slight problem
controling his temper. He was real sen-
sitive about being a male secretary."
OTHER acquaintances, however,
said his temper was a considerable
problem. Jim Smith, a former manager
of the now-bankrupt Wordprocessors
copy shop on State Street,, where
Arroyo worked as a typist, said that in
the four years he has known Arroyo he
has seen a deterioration in his tem-
"We fired him, partly for incom-
petence, and partly for bursts of tem-
per," Smith said.
Smith said police visited his Ypsilanti

home last week in their efforts to locate
Arroyo. He said police described
Arroyo as dangerous.
"I NEVER SAT down and thought to
myself, 'Arthur is a dangerous person,'
but after hearing the police, I can see,
yes, he's someone to be leery of," Smith
Nelson Meade, adminstrative
manager of the University's Depar-
tment of Epidemiology, where Arroyo
last worked, also said Arroyo had good
typing skills, but said he never seemed
comfortable in his position in the office.
"He didn't like to do some required
things like answering the phone and in-
teracting with lots of people," Meade
said. "He preferred to concentrate on
ARROYO HAD worked previously for
the University as a typist in the School
of Natural Resources, from September
1976 to June of 1977, and in the LSA
dean's office from June of 1977 until.
September of 1978, according to Wono
Lee, associate director of University
Information Services.
His last stint at the University started
Sept. 8, 1981 and ended when he was
fired for disruptive behavior Oct. 21.
Arroyo last lived in Ann Arbor at the
University Towers apartments, 536 S.
Forest. Manager George Caves
described him as "a complete loner. He
stayed to himself all the time."
Bob Talvensaari, Arroyo's room-
mate, called him a reserved type of
person, noting that; "I never saw him
with a lot of people."

UAW considers talks at AMC
DETROIT- United Auto Workers union officials are considering
emergency contract talks at American Motors Corp., and UAW President
Douglas Fraser warned yesterday that more plant closings are likely at
General Motors Corp., where talks collapsed last month.
A GM spokesman, however, said there were no plans for closing additional
Also, Ray Majerus, the UAW's secretary-treasurer, said that a meeting of
the union's AMC council-representatives from various AMC plants-will be
scheduled "within the next two weeks" to consider whether to go to the
bargaining table.
If bargaining gets under way at AMC, it would mark the third set of early
negotiations this year in the beleaguered auto industry.
Jet crash results from
lack of communication
LOS ANGELES- A jetliner that hit two power pole cables and nearly
crashed while landing had received no warning it was 500 feet too low
because of damage to a control tower computer, authorities said yesterday.
The Air California Boeing 737 with 122 people was making an approach at
Ontario International Airport when it hit the cables Monday night and lost
the use of its brakes. The plane was diverted to Los Angeles International
Airport, 50 miles west, where it skidded off the runway and came to rest on a
sandy embankment.
Nobody was seriously injured, although passengers were shaken up.
Flight 754 from Seattle and Oakland had been scheduled to land at Ontario
but the control tower there said it was unable to tell the pilot his altitude
because the tower's instrument-landing computer was not working.
Pope continues fight
for human rights in Poland
LAGOS, Nigeria- Pope John Paul II declared yesterday that human
rights must be respected in his native Poland and chastised major powers
that worry more about inflation and arms than poverty in the Third World.
In remarks in Polish to Ambassador Vitold Jurasz and 200 other Poles
gathered on the lawn of the Vatican Embassy in Lagos, the pontiff
repeatedly stressed that "the rights of individuals and nations must be
Earlier yesterday, the pope alluded to the importance of "national
sovereignty without outside interference" in a speech to foreign diplomats.
But his address mainly bemoaned lack of interest by industrialized nations
in poverty in the Third World.
"Many of the world's governments today seem more preoccupied with
other matters, such as inflation and military security," he said. "And yet,
despite the impressive economic growth which some developing countries
have achieved, millions of people still remain caught up in poverty that not
only means low incomes but also malnutrition, hunger, illiteracy, lack of
education, persistent unemployment and reduced life expectancy."
Defense testimony backfires
in Williams trial
ATLANTA- A young defense witness boomeranged yesterday, adding to
the prosecution's fund of stories about accused killer Wayne Williams'
strange behavior.
Joseph Bell, 16, was one of several witnesses the defense has called ap-
parently only to demonstrate that he had survived a relationship with
Williams. But Bell revealed under'cross-examination that Williams once
asked him a rapid-fire series of personal questions and then told Bell he-had
hypnotized him.
Williams, a 23-year-old black photographer and would-be talent scout, is
on trial for the murders of Jimmy Ray Payne, 21, and Nathaniel Cater, 27,
two of the 28 young blacks murdered in Atlanta in a: 22-month period.
Prosecution testimony linked Williams to 10 more victims.

ARROYO PLEADED not guilty at
yesterday's arraignment, according to
Arroyo's attorney, Chief Public Defen-
der Lloyd Powell. A private attorney,
Molly Reno, entered an appearance for
the purpose of arraignment in connec-
tion with the breaking and entering
charge against Arroyo, but withdrew
from the case due to a conflict of in-
terest, she said. "I was never his attor-
ney on the arson charge," Reno said.

Arroyo left Ann Arbor between
Christmas and New Year's, and
traveled by bus to California, according
to Corbett. Delhey said Arroyo had
been working at San Diego Community
College when he was arrested.
Sprenkel praised the work of
Roderick and Branson, and cited the
spirit of cooperation between police,
fire, city, county, state, and University
officials in solving the case.
No decision has been made yet con-
cerning the future of the gutted

Weidenbach, director of University

Chairman Frank Stafford said he was
somewhat relieved a suspect has been
apprehended, but that "it doesn't bring
the building back."
