City candidates debate issues
By SCOTT STUCKAL
With few exceptions, the eight candidates in this
year's race for City Council seats did not offer much
debate in last night's debate, sponsored by the
League of Women Voters.
Democrats and Republicans agreed that the major
problem facing Ann Arbor's government is main-
taining government services in spite of the city's
numerous financial problems.
"IT IS IMPORTANT to turn over every stone and
to look at every way to save money," said First Ward
Democrat Larry Hunter.
Although Hunter said he wants to "hold the line on
property taxes," he stressed the need for "human-.
ness in city government. Being poor or low income
does not mean you have to live in bad housing," he
said, explaining that it will simply take extra effort
from the city to dig up financial sources for im-
David Fisher, incumbent republican in the Third
Ward, also emphasized the need to seek out solutions
to the city's fiscal woes, but cautioned against looking
to taxpayers' wallets for the answers. "I promise to
fight to roll off any inflationary gains" in the millage
tax rate paid by homeowners, he said.
In place of the steady interchange typical of many
political debates, the candidates used last night's
discussion-televised live on Ann Arbor Cablevision's
Channel 10-to present their backgrounds and their
stands on the six proposals on the April ballot.
Hunter's Republican opponent in the First Ward,
Jeffrey Gallatin, is the only candidate who expressed
opposition to the ballot proposal calling for city funds
for the Michigan Theatre. "Let's review it in the
fall," Gallatin said, explaining that he would rather
wait to discuss it until there is an economic upswing
of some kind.
Gallatin departed at one point from the debate's
routine with an attack on Hunter. "Larry says vote
for me because I'm a Democrat. Larry says vote for
me because I'm black, but that's not a good reason,"
"He (Hunter) failed to say what he's going to do
about property taxes. Larry says vote for me because
I believe in road resurfacing. He is passive, and
trying to be a politician. Vote for him, but don't com-
plain about city government," Gallatin said.
Hunter did not respond, and Gallatin's remarks
were the only outright attacks by any candidate at
the debate. But Raphael Ezekiel, the Third Ward
Democratic challenger, complained about the
present city government in general. Calling for a
humanist approach, Ezekiel criticized "a certain
passivity in the (city) Council." He said he supports a
rational approach to human needs "to try to know in-
dividual people and what's important in their lives.''
Ezekiel said he also supports an educational program
about sexual assault and violence, and a city-wide

MOSCOW- Soviet President Leonid Brezhnev, in failing health at 75, has
been hospitalized in Moscow, Soviet sources said yesterday.
Details were scarce and no official announcement was expected.
The sources said it was not known if Brezhnev was suffering from a
specific illness or simply needed to rest after a taxing month of public ap
They said Brezhnev, who was last seen in public March 25, was at a special
downtown hospital that treats high-ranking Soviet officials.
Brezhnev is said to have suffered bouts of gout, non-fatal leukemia, em-
physema and hearing loss in recent years. He continued to speak in public
occasionally, though he often slurred his words and sometimes appeared un-
steady on his feet.
In Washington the State Department said it was -"aware of rumors and
reports" of Brezhnev's hospitalization but was unable "to confirm or deny

greenhouse. I'm not sure that's what
people want," Fisher said. It's curren-
tly being used all year round. Half the
farmers and customers we've talked to
want the market to be indoors, half
want it outdoors."
The councilmember said he strongly
supports the city's ballot proposals to
improve major roads and intersections,
however. "The city will realign the
streets at the Broadway and Geddes in-
tersection to make it safer, put in
stoplights," Fisher said.
THE CITY "can't afford not to buy
this program," Fisher said. "The city
will pay only 20 percent of the cost. The
state and federal governments will pay
Fisher said this intersection has con-
cerned him for a long time. "We really
need to make that intersection safer.
Thank God, we haven't had a tragedy
there already," he said.
The energy proposal which would
authorize the city to acquire a public
utility does not deserve support, accor-
ding to Fisher, because "it doesn't ad-
dress what I want it to address: the
development of two or three hydroelec-
tric dams, assuming they're cost-
effective," he said.
BUT THE Republican is uncertain
about the proposal calling for city funds
for the Michigan Theatre. "The people
who go there could pay an extra quar-
ter," he said, which would raise
revenue for the theater without ad-
Democrat challenger Ezekiel, who
supports the Michigan Theatre
proposals along with all the others, said
more emphasis is needed on human
services in Ann Arbor.
"You've got people who depend on
social services, for child care and
health care, and those are disappearing
because of federal and state cuts,"
Ezekiel said. "We (the city) cannot
possibly fill the whole slack, but we
should be trying to do part of it.
... opposes Farmer's Market
"I WANT TO bring in grassroots
groups like Peace Neighborhood Cen-
ter, Bryant Community Clinic, and
Perry Nursery School who know their
own populations and know how to work
with them to make programs that will
do the most for the least money, to
strengthen the neighborhood," he said.
Rape prevention is another priority,
according to Ezekiel. "I really would
like to see us end up as a city where
women can walk alone at night," he
said. "Number one on my priority list is
exploring foot patrols at night."
Senate averts potential shutdown
WASHINGTON- The Senate averted the potential shutdown of seven
major government departments yesterday by narrowly voting to postpone a
battle over a tax break for members of Congress.
Senate leaders ended a two-day fight over the tax issue by using
parliamentary tactics allowing their colleagues to set aside the special tax
deduction, while not voting specifically on whether it is needed or fair.
By a vote of 51-48, the Senate declared that the attempt to roll back the tax
break enacted last year should not be attached to a stopgap spending
But the issue is sure to be debated and voted on later. At issue was whether
members of Congress should get a tax reduction to offset the expense of
living in Washington while maintaining a residence in their home states.
Israeli troops tighten hold
on Sinai settlements
YAMIT, Occupied Sinai - Israeli troops tightened their grip on the volatile
settlements in northern Sinai yesterday, the last day for civilians to depart
before Israel returns the territory to Egypt on April 25.
Soldiers with weapons patrolled the streets of Yamit as truckloads of
household goods, irigation pipes and farming gear headed north. The army
closed off three other settlements as soon as they were empty, and guards
were posted to keep squatters and thieves from entering.
Most, but not all of Yamit's 2,000 settlers were leaving before the midnight
"The army will have to take me. by the ear and drag me a way," said a
young bank clerk who the day before had chased two visiting Egyptian
bankers out of his branch. The clerk. said he couldn't bear the thought of
Egyptians taking over his office.
UAW, AMC talks break down
DETROIT- Contract talks between American Motors Corp. and United
Auto Workers broke off yesterday because the two sides failed to reach
agreement on the ratio of supervisors to workers in certain plants, a union
UAW chief negotiator Ray Majerus, the union's secretary and treasurer,
said talks broke down about 6p.m. after more than a week of slow but steady
progress in negotiations.
At an evening news conference Majerus said the union and company had
reached basic agreement on a $150 million employee investment plan under
which workers would give up certain economic gains to finance new produc-

against him. She said Gallatin was
"very frightening," and that he had, on
several occasions, warned her and her
boyfriend against causing trouble. She
called him a "slumlord."
IN RESPONSE to her charges,
Gallatin said, "If I had known what she
was like, I never would have rented it to
her. She's an instigator."
Dennis Albert, another former tenant
of Gallatin, said Gallatin once came to
his apartment, grabbed his shirt, and
said "You'd better pay the rent by

tomorrow." Albert said he had been
withholding his rent to protest
unrepaired damages in his apartment,
at the advice of University Student
Gallatin said, "I wanted them (Albert
and his roommates) to understand that
if they didn't respect it (the property)
themselves, I couldn't do it. I wanted to
teach them a lesson."
WHEN ALBERT tried to sublet his
apartment, "people knew who he
(Gallatin) was and were afraid to
rent," Albert said.
A staff member of the Tenants Union,
Gwynn Kostin, said, "I've only had one
tenant cry, while speaking to me. That
was after (she had been) speaking with
Gallatin said he has never had
anything to do with the Tenants Union,
but has "three times been involved with
University of Michigan (Student) Legal
Services and been in court twice."
"I've never forced anybody to rent
from me, and I've never forced anyone
to stay," Gallatin said. He added,
"Being a realtor, builder, and investor,
you're always in the position of making
a friend or an enemy. I guess I'm not a
They had also agreed on a repayment plan enabling union members to
recover wages and other sacrifices by 1985.
"Most other issues had been resolved and an overall agreement clearly
was close to being reached when talks broke down," Majerus said,
