Authorities called the murders the
worst mass slaying in the state since
eight Detroit residents were killed in a
drug-related case in 1971.
Clare County Sheriff Ghazey Alek-
said he had issued an alert for Robert
Haggart, the estranged husband of one
of the victims, but stopped short of
naming him as the "possible suspect"
he said officers were seeking.
A CREW OF four officers planned to

Agents of the FBI visited the Univer-
sity's Engineering-Transportation
Library last week in an attempt to ascer-
tain what materials a visiting Russian
scholar was reading, librarylemployees
FBI officials would only acknowledge
that the incident occurred and that two
agents were involved. They refused to
issue any further comment.
ACCORDING TO John Walters,
stacks supervisor at the Engineering
Library, FBI agents came to the
library and spoke with Head Librarian
Maurita Holland. He said they asked
her about a visiting mathematics
scholar from the U.S.S.R. and,
specifically, about what library
materials he was using.
Holland would not comment on the
incident, but did read a library policy
statement which said, "The library will
not reveal the names of individual
borrowers nor reveal what books are
charged to any individual."
Associate Library Director Jane
Flener said the libraty was in-
vestigating the incident. "We don't
keep a record of who reads what," she
A CHECK WITH the mathematics
department revealed only one visiting
Russian scholar on their staff, Vladimir

Malyshko. He was unaware of the in-
"I don't know anything about it,"
Malyshko said. "I use all books open for
all people in the Engineering Library.
This is not any secret, it seems to me."
Malyshko said he wasgoing to call his
embassy to discuss the situation.
ROBERT HOLMES, assistant to
Vice-President Billy Frye, said Frye's
office was unaware of the incident, and
could not offer any comment.
Employees of the Undergraduate
Library, where the Engineering-
Transportation Library is housed, said
they heard that the visiting scholar,
presumably Malyshko, was
photocopying sensitive documents on
computer technology and mailing them
to the Soviet Union. Flener said,
"That's a presumption. I don't think
anyone knows what he was doing with
Flener added that, "We have nothing
in our library that is notl public
knowledge. It is in'the public domain."
ENGINEERING library employee
Joe Badics said the claims of the Un-
dergraduate Library employees had
been "blown all out of proportion."
The incident is similar to others
which have occurred at universities
throughout the nation in the past year.

Park research possible by


High technology corporations may
sign agreements by this fall to move in-
to-the recently proposed research park
near the University's North Campus,
park developers said yesterday.
Confirming reports which surfaced
last week, Vice President and Chief
Financial Officer James Brinkerhoff
formally announced yesterday to a
group of local officials that an
agreement has been reached with Ann
Arbor developer Richard Wood to turn
the 400-acre site between U.S. 23 and
the University's Botanical Gardens into
a research park.
A PLANNER HIRED by the Univer-
sity to study the site said the developers
have set a summer target date for
completing a master plan, and hope to
have final approval by the fall.
Ann Arbor Township and Washtenaw
County officials will have to make
zoning and planning changes, however,
'before development can begin, said

Carl Johnson, of the Ann Arbor con-
sulting firm Johnson, Johnson, and,
The agreement between the Univer-
sity and Wood's development cor-
porations, which hold title to the land,
requires that the University pay about
$130,000 in planning costs, to be retur-
ned from proceeds of sale of the land in
subsequent years, Brinkerhoff said.
THE UNIVERSITY'S interest in the
deal stems from its commitment to aid
in the recovery of the state's economy
by bringing new technology to the state,
according to Brinkerhoff.
"The University has a direct interest
in having these kinds of activities in the
community in order to provide for the
technology transfer from faculty mem-
bers to (industry)," he said.
A provision to allow the Industrial
Technology Institute - a non-profit
corporation set up by Gov. William
Milliken's High Technology Task Force
- to purchase 20 acres on the site at a
price below its market value is included

in the agreement, Brinkerhoff said.
OFFICIALS OF the Institute have
said it plans to locate in the Ann Arbor
area, but they have not said whether
they want to locate it in the park. The
clause in the development contract is
intended to protect the state-sponsored
organization if it locates in the park,
Brinkerhoff said.
The University's primary obligation
in the project is to solicit high-
technology companies to locate in the
park, according to the terms of the
agreement. Brinkerhoff said he has
already received several inquiries
about the site.
Wood said that "there are perhaps
four candidates for the park" at the
present time.
Other service facilities, such as
restaurants and banks, will also locate
in the area, according to the developer.'
The consulting firm's responsibilities
include providing environmental and
community impact studies and

WARSAW, Poland- Polish sources
said yesterday authorities staged a two-
day crackdown on Poles suspected of
violating martial law, punishing 52,000
for breaking curfew and detaining 3,500
others, presumably for more serious
Polish authorities last week launched
a two-day campaign called "Operation
Peace" designed to crush a thriving
black market and quell violations of
martial law imposed by Poland's

PAP news agency said.
RADIO WARSAW, monitored in Lon-

throughout Poland" and that many
were conducted at night. It did not give
the exact dates of the sweep, and it was
unclear how many of those detained
were still in custody,
Officials checked 51,000 shops, stop-

checks on 145,000 citizens "who violated
obligatory restrictions," PAP said.
About 29,000 people were released with
warnings, PAP said.

punished for violating the dusk-to-dawn
curfew but did not elaborate. Uncon-

CHULA VISTA, Calif. (AP) - Three
people were killed and at least three
others were wounded last night by a
sniper firing a variety of weapons in a
trailer park., One man was taken into
custody more than four hours after the
shooting began, sheriff's deputies said.
San Diego County Sheriff's Depar-
tment Sgt. Chuck Curtis confirmed the
three deaths but said he was uncertain
about the exact number of wounded,
other than a deputy.
fy said the deputy had been hit in the
base of the neck and was reported in
serious condition at a hospital.
At least 19 shots were fired from a

shotgun, a rifle, and a small-caliber
pistol, Duffy said.
The man, taken into custody at about
6:15 p.m., was taken to Bay General
Community Hospital in Chula Vista.
Dallas Johnson, 27, a member of the
San Diego Paramedics, said the man,
in his 50s, did not appear to be seriously
JUST BEFORE 5 p.m., officers laid
down a smoke screen, then advanced
behind it with an armored van to
remove a woman's body from a
driveway at the Mountain View Mobile
Officers then began lobbing tear gas
canisters inside a trailer they believed

the gunman was using. The tear gas
barrage continued for at least 45
minutes before the shooting stopped
and the man was taken into custody.
Just two blocks from the trailer park
is Lauderback Elementary School,
which has some 600 students. Some of
the younger students, from kindergar-
ten to third grade, had been let out of
school right before the shooting began,
said principal Cliff Johnson, "so we had
to quickly pick them up on their way
THE REST OF the children were held
at the school until their parents could
take them, Johnson said.

courtroom stuntman
MOVIE STUNTMAN Alan Gibbs, an expert on
faking accidents, has found a new role in the
courtroom. He provides reruns of real
accidents. Gibbs, a muscular man of 41 who
chain-smokes cigarettes, has spent 20 years as a stuntman
doubling for stars such as Burt Reynolds in Smokey and the

settled out of court for $174,000. For another suit, Gibbs
piloted a Chevy Vegas squarely into a bridge culvart. "We
claimed there was a defect in the steering and their
physicists claimed my client had to have been speeding,"
Merritt said. "I believe we showed there wasn't any speed.
The demonstration Gibbs did proved the point." Gibbs is

the difficulty of the stunt he's doing. E

married before, said the idea of a trucker's wedding began
as a joke. There was a certain logic to it, however. The two

after arranging a date on the C.B. Hammond was driving
for the Navy and Pine for a Des Moines, Iowa firm. During
the next four years they met at various truck stops

American peace in a talk sponsored by the Young
Progressives. He said an agreement between Capitalist and
Communist peoples is necessary if we "wish to avoid the
