Tests ordered for arson suspect'
By PERRY CLARK held in Washtenaw County Jail with hnnd set at Pn ll

Psychiatric testing will delay the preliminary
examination of Arthur Arroyo, accused of setting fire
to the University Economics Building, Public Defen-
der Lloyd Powell said yesterday.
The date for the examination, originally scheduled
for Feb. 24, will be set after 15th District Court
receives a psychiatric report from the Forensic Cen-
ter in Ypsilanti, Powell said.
"WE NEED TO determine the competency of him
before proceeding any further," Powell said. "We
are doing it because it is in his best interest."
Arroyo, 30, was arraigned yesterday and is being

$10,000 for arson charges, and $20,000 for charges of
breaking and entering the Economics Building last
Police Chief William Corbett would not give details
about the evidence which he 'said points to Arroyo, a
former University employee, in the Christmas Eve
arson of the building. He said police have a set of
palm prints from the Thanksgiving Day break-in, but
have not yet proven if they belong to Arroyo.
A psychiatric examination is necessary to deter-
mine Arroyo's ability to cooperate effectively with
defense attorneys in preparing his case, according to

If Arroyo is found competent, Powell said, a
preliminary hearing will be scheduled immediately.
If he is found incompetent,.he will be psychiatrically
treated until he is considered competent, Powell said.
"We have no other recourse," he said. "It's just
solid defense."
Meanwhile, the $4,000 offered by the University and
State Arson Control as a reward to people who
anonymously provided tips leading to Arroyo's arrest
remains untouched, according to police Sgt. Harold

Pressing financial issues - possible
additions to the University's invest-
ment portfolio, a proposed 9.55-percent
residence hall rate hike, and the
framework of the "five-year plan" -
will occupy most of the Regents' time at
their February meeting today and
As part of their, 12-month review of
investments, the Board of Regents will
consider adding several new cor-
porations to their master list, including
at least two which work largely in
defense department contracts.
LAST YEAR AT this time, the Regen-
ts approved the addition of five defense
department corporations to their
master list of investments. The con-
troversial decision to invest in defense
prompted widespread protest on cam-

pus and a bomb scare during the
Regents also are expected to approve
a recommendation to increase rates for
.traditional residence halls by 9.55 per-
cent, while increasing Oxford, Fletcher
and Baits housing by 12.5 percent.
Family housing units are expected to go
up by 12.2 percent.
Vice President for Academic Affairs
Billy Frye also is expected to detail his
five-year plan, which recommends cut-
ting back on programs and personnel as
part of a comprehensive effort to
reallocate funds to higher priority
The meeting will convene today at 1
p.m. in the Regents' Room of the
Fleming Administration Building. The
board is scheduled to re-convene
tomorrow at 9 a.m.

Angolan struggle discussed
by national youth leader

(Continued from Page 1)
the importance of the role of youth in
the liberation and growth of Angola, a
country in which 42 percent of the
population of 8 million is 18 years old or
"I had a great feeling for the capacity
of their use and the extent of their in-
volvement in the liberation process,"
Steele said of the young people he met
with while in Angola.
ANGOLA GAINED its independence
from Portugal in November, 1975 after
a 15-year armed struggle and more
than five centuries as a colony, ac-
cording to Steele. However, since
People's Movement for the Liberation
of Angola (MPLA) came to power,
Angola has been engaged in a war
against apartheid in South Africa.
Politically, things have not been easy
for the MPLA, which is currently tran-
sforming itself from a political to a
workers party with Marxist-Leninist
roots, according to Steele. "The coun-

try as a whole aspires to. build a
socialist society" he said.
The media and the government in
America, he said, haverunfairly
represented the role of Soviet and
Cuban assistance to Angola in its
struggle against South Africa.
STEELE COMPARED the material
aid Angola has received from the two
nations to French help the American
anti-colonialists received during the
Revolutionary War. "One can argue,"
he said, "that what Angola did is as
American as apple pie."
"National independence is a
prerequisite notonly to human
development but also to human sur-
vival," he said of Angola. "They have
literally had to develop a nation."
According to Steele, when Angola
gained independence, 85 percent of the,
population could not read or write and
average life sean was 41 years of age.
Presently, he said, the illiteracy rate
has dropped toabout 25 percent.

E-Systems continues
the tradition of
the world's gre at problem solvers.

Unquestionably, Leonardo
da Vinci possessed one of the
world's great minds. Not only re-
nowned as a painter and sculp-
tor, da Vinci also applied his
exceptional talents to the me-
chanics of fiight, to cartography
for planning military campaigns,
and even astronomy.
Today, scientists and engi-_
neers at E-Systems continue the
tradition by expanding the practi-
cal application of advanced tech-
nology. E-Systems uses the
principles of flight mechanics as
the basis for major modifications
to aircraft, expands basic car-
tography to encompass highly

sophisticated guidance and com-
mand and control systems, and
has designed and built a sys-
tem that greatly expands man's
ability to study the universe..
That's only a small seg-
ment of the tough problems.
E-Systems engineers solve in
the area of antennas, communi-
cations, data acquisition, pro-
cessing, storage and retrieval
systems and other systems ap-
plications for intelligence and re-
connaissance - systems which
are often the first of a kind in
the world.
