Insanity
ria e f
gu nmal
By SCOTT STUCKAL
The 26-year-old Ann Arbor man
charged in last Tuesday's shooting
spree downtown may plead temporary
insanity if he is found to be competent
to stand trial, his attorney said yester-
day.
Any defense for William Hackett -
charged with assault with intent to
murder, and malicious destruction of
property valued at more than $100 -
will be decided after Hackett undergoes
psychiatric testing, according to Chief
Public Defender Lloyd Powell.
POWELL SAID he requested the
tests, which are being conducted by the
Center for Forensic Psychiatry in York
Township, because Hackett was
"disoriented and could not converse
normally" when they met. The tests
will determine whether Hackett is
competent to stand trail, and whether
he "knows the difference between right
and wrong," Powell said.
Police arrested Hackett last
Tuesday night on North First Street, af-

may be
ense for
suspect
ter a shooting spree in which he is ac-
cused of firing more than 30 rounds
from a .22 caliber rifle at more than 50
policemen and at nearby buildings.
Among those shots, six were
allegedly directed at policed sharp
shooter Gary Stewart, who returned the
fire and hit the ledge of a window from
which Hackett was allegedly firing.
IF HE IS convicted of the assault
charge, Hackett could receive a
maximum sentence of life in prison,
although police said such a severe sen-
tence is unlikely.
The property destruction charge
against Hackett carries a maximum
penalty of five years in prison.
Public Defender Powell said that "it
is still too early in the game" to decide
Hackett's defense. If his client is found
competent to stand trial, Powell said,
an insanity defense will probably be
used. "It is my understanding that he
(Hackett) was receiving psychiatric
treatment before the shooting," he
said.

By LISA CRUMRINE
By the time of graduation, some
students swear they'll never give
another dime to the University. Yet
many seniors in the School of Business
have decided that a few more checks
for the school's "student pledge
program" are worthwhile.
Initiated by business students three
years ago, the pledge program solicits
five-year pledges from graduating
bachelors students and second-year
masters students.
"THE MONEY is used to smooth out
areas which are underfunded," said
Frank Wilhelm, director of alumni
relations and the business school
general fund. The University en-
courages the program, Wilhelm said,
because it "contributes to the Univer-
sity's reputation, particularly since
more and more emphasis is being
placed on professional schools."
Because expectations from in-
dividuals vary, the pledge campaign
committee has established a three-
part program: A$50-x plan, the $25-x
plan, and the do-it-yourself plan. Under
the first two plans, students pledge the
amount multiplied by the number of
years since graduation, and the first
pledge gift is due in the fall after
graduation.
By last Friday, 75 students had
pledged, and committee members said
they expect a lot of last-minute
pledges. The campaign ends this
week.
"WE'RE LOOKING to get more
participation, but the campaign has
been successful in that we're getting
people involved, and aware of the cam-
paign," said Jane Marsden, a member
of the committee. "It's sort of a
grassroots effort to help the school."
Marsden said the reactions of
business school seniors to the program
runs the full gamut. "A lot of people tie
their pledges to their job offer," she
said.
Committee member Cindy Green-
berg said the majority of students who
won't pledge say they aren't willing to

make the decision. But "even if studen-
ts haven't given in the student cam-
paign, in the future it will be easier to
get money from them."
DURING LAST year's campaign,
one-third of the school's bachelors
graduates pledged, and one-half of the
masters students pledged.
Charlie Rothstein, a graduating MBA,
explained that the goal of the program
is "to create a lasting tie, a bond," bet-
ween faculty, alumni, and students in
order to raise $15 million for new
buildings.
"I think it's a good thing," said
second-year MBA Greg Wishbow.
"Historically, it's not been easy to get
help from alumni. We're going to have
to compensate for it with student sup-
port.
"BUT I would want to earmark my
money for a certain fund - for exam-
ple, placement," he said. "After
talking with the campaignmembers, it
sounds like it won't be done this way. If
I can't, I'll probably give less."
Although the School of Business is
unique among schools and colleges on
this campus in its student pledge
program, Wilhelm said other Univer-
sities and colleges - including Texas
Christian, TheeUniversity of Chicago,
and the University of California at
Berkley - have similar programs.
