Ann Arbor, Michigan-Tuesday, April 6, 1982
Ann Arbor Democrats captured two of three contested seats
on City Council in yesterday's city election, winning in the
First and Third Wards- both heavily populated by students.
In the race of theFifth Ward spot, the Republican incumbent
narrowly defeated her Democrat challenger.
All of the ballot proposals but one - Proposal C, which
called for city funds to renovate the Farmers' Market -
passed. Two of the proposals will sponsor road repairs for
the city, two will give funds to the Michigan Theatre, and one
will allow the city to acquire a public utility.
UNOPPOSED Republican James Blow received 841 votes
in the Second Ward, and Republican Gerald Jernigan, also
unopposed, pulled in 888 votes to win his seat from the Fourth
Democrat Larry Hunter (First Ward) overwhelmingly
defeated Republic Jeffrey Gallatin, with a vote of 1,311 to 347.
"I'm ecstatic," Hunter said. "I feel good because it shows
hard work pays off." Hunter said he won because he was
supported by both old and young Democrats, and by students
and others who believe in his past record.
GALLATIN WAS unavailable for comment.
Democrat Raphael Ezekiel, an associate professor of
social psychology at the University, defeated Republican in-
cumbent David Fisher in the Third Ward with a close vote of
1,483 to 1,350.
"We worked really hard," said Ezekiel, the winner of what
is traditionally known as the city's "swing ward." "We
talked good sense, serious issues, and people responded.

The University yesterday announced
it will raze the charred skeleton of the
Economics Building, gutted by fire last
The building will be leveled because
the University cannot'afford to moder-
nize or maintain it in compliance with
current building standards, according
to John Weidenbach, director of
University Business Operations.
Weidenbach'said he expects demolition
to begin May 5.
"WE COULD restore it, we just don't
want to," he said. Essentially, Weiden-
bach explained, "it's the wrong
economic time" for the University to
undertake such a costly project.
Offices of the Department of
Economics, now located in the old St.
Joseph Hospital, may move either to
Lorch Hall or to the West Engineering
Building, accoding to Department
Chairman Frank Stafford.
Either of the buildings would have to
be renovated to accommodate the
economics department, Stafford gaid,
but the cost in each case would be lower
than the cost of restoring the old
A RESTORED Economics Building
would be short 15,000 square feet of
needed space because of moder-
nizations the University would be
required to make, including handicap-
ped facilities and a fire protection
sprinkler system, he said.
The oldest classroom building on
campus, the Economics Building bur-
ned last Christmas Eve in a fire which
police say was caused by arson. Victor
Arroyo, a former University employee,
is charged with setting the fire.
Architect Robert Darvas, who
studied the building's condition for the
University, said renovations "can be
done, but it wouldn't be cost-efficient."
According to Darvas, however, the
historic value also must be considered.
"How can you find dollars and cents
costs for this building?" he asked.
DARVAS' STUDY found the
building's north bay and east wall in
'very good condition.' The remaining
70 to 80 percent, he said, is damaged to
University architecture ' Prof.
Kingsley Marsolf said yesterday that
the building "deserved to be saved."
Although he admitted that it would be
too small for the economics depar-
tment, Marsolf pointed out that another
department could have used the
Economics major Rosalyn Dorking, a
junior, said razing the structure "looks
like a good idea. I don't think they need
a new specialized building," she said.
Many economics professors said they
were not surprised by the decision.
"There was no chance to patch it back
together again," said Prof. Saul
The University currently is
negotiating an insurance settlement
with Industrial Risk Insurers for money
to replace the lost building; according
to Robet Winter, assistant director of
Univesity insurance. Although no
figure has been agreed on, Winter said
he expects the University to receive
between $1:5 million and $2 million to
renovate another existing building for
the economics department.
'U'spital funds may be blocked
By LOU FINTOR
Construction of the University's con-
troversial $285 million Replacement
Hospital Project once again faces the
possibility of being halted.
The project's funds recently have
been put in jeopardy due to the State
Building Authority's delay in selling
construction bonds for other state fun-
ded projects. The state must sell the
existing bonds before they can issue
another $140 million in bonds ear-
marked for the University's new
WITH THE possibility of these funds
falling through, a new question has
been raised about the hospital's future.
Federal law states that if financial
plans for the hospital project are
altered in any form, the whole program
must come up for review, according to
Terence Carroll, executive director of
the federal health systems agency,
which is based in Detroit. CHPC-SEM is
the federal agency responsible for
reviewing all Michigan health care
If the hospital's construction is
reviewed once again by CHPC-SEM,
the project might not emerge in a
favorable light, according to Carroll.
"I never felt it (the RHP) was
feasible," Carroll said. "Our persistentf
feeling was that it was too grandiose."
CARROLL added that while he
believed a new University hospital is
needed, the current project is simply
While the hospital may or may not be
the best in the nation after its construc-
tion, "it will certainly be the most ex-
pensive," Carroll said. He also
questioned whether the project's large
price tag will eventually lead to better
University Hospital Director Jeptha
Dalston confirmed the possibility of the
project coming up for :eview if state
money falls through, but added that
University planners have not yet given
this option serious consideration.
DALSTON added, however, that
planners are trying to consider all
possibilities for the hospital's future.

James Brinkerhoff said earlier that the
University would like to avoid the
possibility of another CHPC-SEM
