Right ists
claim
*victory in
Salvador
SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador- The
right-wing National Conciliation Party,
ousted 2 years ago in the coup that in-
stalled El Salvador's ruling junta,
emerged yesterday as kingmaker in
post-election maneuvering by six par-
*ties to form a new government.
A National Conciliation leader said
one thing was certain-moderate Jose
Napoleon Duarte, president of the
civilian-military junta, would have to
go. Duarte's Christian Democrats won
the most votes in Sunday's assembly
elections, but fell short of a majority.
MEANWHILE, the Salvadoran
military scored a new success in its war
against leftist guerrillas, retaking the
eastern City of Usulutan in heavy
fighting.
Fifteen soldiers, more than 100
guerrillas and an undetermined num-
ber of civilians were reported killed in,
the four-day battle for the nation's fou'r-
th-largest city.
The U.S. government, which before
the election solidly backed the centrist
Christian Democrats, appeared yester-
day to be moving cautiously closer to
the five other parties. Those parties, all
right-wing, seemed to hold the upper
hand after Sunday's voting.
THE SALVADORAN left denounced
the election as a "farce" and boycotted
it, saying any of their candidates would
have risked assassination by right-wing
"death squads."
A takeover by a right-wing coalition
could jeopardize the junta's land
redistribution program, which the U.S.
government has cited as evidence of

City police
apprehend
gunman

A lone gunman who barricaded him-
self in a downtown house and opened
fire onto First Street with a .22-caliber
rifle was apprehended by police late
last night after an exchange of fire with
a police sniper.
The 26-year-old. man first began
firing from the house at 314 N. First St.
onto the 300-block of the street at 7 p.m.
as police, alerted by the man's room-
mates, were on their way to the home.
THE POLICE officer who first'
arrived at the scene was pinned down
by fire while other officers and sheriff's
deputies arrived and surrounded the
house, police said later.
After a three-and-a-half hour standoff
with police, the man again opened fire,
this time on a police sniper stationed on
the roof of a house next door. The officer
returned fire with a high-powered rifle,
splintering the wooden windowsill from
where the man was shooting, and in-
juring the man's face.
The man, who police referred to only
as "Bill," took no hostages during the
standoff and no ode was injured in the
exchanges of bullets except the gun-
man, police said.
Following the exchange of bullets, the
man, bleeding from his chin abandoned
his weapon and moved from the up-
stairs bedroom to the living room

downstairs. Police officers, seeing the
man was unarmed, kicked in the front
door and apprehended the man who did
not resist.
SHORTLY AFTER the brief ex-
change of shots; at about 10:40 p.m.,
police led the man from the house and
ushered him into a waiting squad car.
Police Major Walter Hawkins said
the man had been suffering "crying
spells" since he quit his job as a janitor
for the city's school system two weeks
ago.
"HE'S GOT some severe mental
problems," Hawkins said. "He's been
getting messages from the TV and the
radio ... but not the messages you're
supposed to'get from the TV-it's been
telling him to do things.
The man's roommates said they
became concerned yesterday afternoon
when the man, who had been upset for
several days, returned home after
buying a rifle.
Police said the man had been
smoking "considerable amounts" of
marijuana throughout the day and con-
tinued to demand "more reefer"
throughout the telephone negotiations,
with police.

1st Ward hopefuls outline issues

Columbia lands after
perfect eight days

By STACY POWELL
The two city council candidates from
the student-populated First Ward
disagree on the philosophy of city
'government and its services.
The First Ward elections should bring
in the greatest number of student votes,
since it has more students in it than any
other ward. On April 5, Republican Jef-
frey Gallatin will oppose Democrat
Larry Hunter, both newcomers to city

council. The ward is generally
acknowledged as a "safe" Democratic
ward.
GALLATIN IS a real estate broker
and builder who considers tenants'
rights a priority of bity council. Hunter
city elections 982
has focused on human services and in-
creasing citizen participation in gover-
nment.
Gallatin, 38, has a somewhat unique
platform; if he is elected to city council,
Gallatin said he will "take one-sixth of
my city council salary (about $5,000),
and donate it to the Ann Arbor Tenants'
Union." Gallatin said he would like to
help the "abused tenant" in Ann Arbor
get better tenants' rights and con-
ditions. He said the donation will be
given in the name of Jonathan Rose,
who founded the Ann Arbor Tenants'
Union. f
Larry Hunter, tihe Democratic can-
didate, is stressing "the city's priorities
on providing needed human ser-
vices-moderate and low-income,

health and dental care and jobs for the
unemployed."
HUNTER, 30, is supported by the
Democratic party and has worked
previously in city government. He ser-
ved as the Director of Youth Program
for Model Cities, a program for inner-
city Ann Arbor youth and worked in an
emergency housing location program
for the city. He is currently employed
by the American Friends Service
Committee, a Quaker organization,,as a
program associate on the Anti-Death
Penalty Campaign.
Another issue on which Hunter is
focusing is continued support for the
new nighttime taxi service for Ann Ar-
bor. "I also want to see adequate tran-
sportation for outlying areas, like
Arrowwood Hills Co-op, a moderate-
income housing unit."
Hunter said he woild also like to see
"more cooperation between the
University and city government on the
subject of crime prevention, especially
rape prevention, using seminars and
education programs. It can be done
with mutual cooperation." Hunter said,
however, that more police protection is
not necessarily the answer to the

WHITE SANDS, N.M. (UPI)-
Astronauts Jack Lousma and Gor-
don Fullerton swooped to a desert
landing in the shuttle Columbia
yesterday to cap a "perfect" eight-
day mission in space.
The spaceplane streaked across
the Gulf "of California, southern
Arizona and New Mexico and
touched down just after 11 a.m. EST,
a day late, on the Northrup Strip at
White Sands Missile Range.
"IWELCOME home," ground
communicator Steve Nagel told the
astronauts r as the winged

spaceship' s main landing gear
touched down. "That was a beautiful
job."
The touchdown was not as smooth
as the two previous ones at Edwards
Air Force Base, Calif. Rolling along
on its two main wheels, Columbia
nosed up abruptly, but then leveled
out and command pilot Lousma
eased it down on the nose wheel.
With the landing, delayed by Mon-
day's sandstorm at White Sands, the
astronauts racked up a shuttle en-
durance record of 8 days, 4 minutes
and 49 seconds.

problem.
"IT'S ONE OF the options, but-that's
(more police) not the only thing that
can be done. If the need is there, we
should get more police," Hunter said.
"But, if the need isn't there, we
shouldn't."
Republican candidate Gallatin said
he is not supported by the Republican

*U-Cellar chief
calls it quits

By KEVIN TOTTIS
Citing personal difficulties with the store's unor-
thodox managerial structure, the University Cellar
general manager announced he will quit April 15,
leaving the financially-strapped Cellar without a
general manager for the second time in little more
than a year.'
Bob Carlson submitted a letter to the Cellar's
Board of Directors in mid-February announcing his
resignation from the $26,000-a-year position. Carlson
had been with the Cellar since last August. After suc-
ceeding Tudor Bradley, who was forced to resign last
January.
BOTH MEN cited the Cellar's non-traditional
managerial structure as a reason for their
resignations. Unlike most stores that have a hierar-

chichal structure and a specific chain of command,
the Cellar is decentralized and employees take part
in the store's decision-making. Two union members
sit on the board of directors. (Cellar employees are
members of the Industrial Workers of the World.)
"I'm from a very traditional kind of (business)
orientation," Carlson said. "You like to get things
done, but it's very hard for someone to come into this
store from outside."
But the 35year-old Carlson defended the store's
structure. "The system can work if everyone wants
to put a lot into it," he said. "It's a good organization
if, in fact, you've grown up with it."
MARY ANNE Caballero, chairwoman of the
Cellar's Board of Directors, acknowledged that
managers from outside the Cellar had met with
