Aganst advice,'K l o n o
will be brought
back to city
_court today

Against the advice of the county sheriff, convicted
murderer Kyle Johnson, who escaped from police for
a day three weeks ago, will be brought back to down-
town Ann Arbor today for a court hearing.
After Johnson escaped Oct. 22 while being brought
to a downtown court for another hearing, city police
and sheriff's officials agreed to hold future hearings
for escape-prone convicts at area prisons to reduce
the risk of escape.
BUT, IN a change of policy, Johnson's hearing on
his escape charge was scheduled for a courtroom in
City ' Hall today. County Sheriff Tom Minick,
however, said late yesterday he will still seek to have
officials relocate Johnson's hearing to the
Washtenaw County Jail, where Johnson has been
held since his escape.
Minick met yesterday afternoon with officials from
the county prosecutor's office in an effort to persuade
them to cancel Johnson's scheduled Ann Arbor court

appearance today. And Minick said he will urge them
again today to move the hearing to the County Jail,
located near the Ann Arbor-Ypsilanti border.
Fifteenth District Court Judge Pieter Thomassen,
who will preside over Johnson's pre-trial hearing at 3
p.m. today, said yesterday, however, that Johnson
will be brought back to Ann Arbor. He said city police
would take adequate steps to ensure that Johnson
does not escape a second time.
ANN ARBOR police Capt. Calvin Hicks said last
night that security at City Hall will be beefed up for
Johnson's trip to court. Almost three weeks ago,
Johnson escaped from a police van in a downtown
parking lot as he was being taken to a court hearing.
-"Knowing his past record, I don't think (bringing
him to the court) is a safe procedure," Hicks said.
"But I can assure you that we'll do everything
humanly possibly to keep him from escaping."
Hicks added that there are greater security

proposal on insulation

"Much harm has been done to man
and nature because technologies have
been used with no thought for the
possible consequences of their interac-
tion with nature," said Retired Admiral
I;yman Rickover last night to an
audience of over a thousand in
Rackham Auditorium.
.In an address which was sur-
prisingly scarce in references to
American naval power, his field of ex-
pertise, Rickover called for what he
termed "a humanistic atitude toward
technology," stating that "since it is a
product of human effort, technology
can haveno legitimate purpose but to
serve 'man."
said, "technology is not an end in itself,
but a means to an end." He also added,
surprisingly for the man generally con-
sidered the father of the nuclear navy,
"that technology can have no legitimacy
unless it inflicts no harm."
He illustrated his points by citing the
examples of detrimental applications of
technology - the excesses of commer-
cial deep-sea fishing, the overuse of
modern pesticides, and the harm done'
by the then untested drug
thalidomide - and contrasting these
with the medical profession, which he
considered to be the model which
technologieally oriented professions
should follow.
"Of all technologies, that of the
physician has benefitted man most and
harmed him least." he said, adding,
"the stringent standards set by the
profession and by society for the
education and professional conduct of

physicians account for this happy cir-
IN ORDER to make technology safe,
Rickover proposed the
"professionalizing of the decision-
making process in technology. I have
long believed that we should come ap-
preciably closer to a human humanistic
technology if engineering were prac-
ticed as a humanistic profesison, and if
engineers were accorded the
professional independence granted the
members of liberal professions."
Rickover was removed in January by
the Reagan administration in a storm
of c9ntroversy after serving 60 years in
the United States Navy.
In the short question and answer
period which followed his thirty-minute
speech, the 81-year-old retired admiral,
a recipient fo some of this nation's
highest honors, including the
Congressional Gold Medal and the
Presidential Medal of Freedom,
showed the irascibility for which he has
become famous.
He repeatedly responded in a brusque
and impatient manner to questions
posed by the audience. When asked by
an engineering student of the necessity
of a code of ethics for engineers,
Rickover said "Why don't you go to
church for that."
After the speech, audience members
responded ambivalently to the ad-
miral's presentation.
"The lecture was very good. The
question and answer period typifies his
style, but I don't know how helpful it
was," said Susan Kling, a graduate
student -in public policy, adding, "He
could have been more forthright."

The Michigan Student Assembly last
night endorsed petitions to put a
"weatherization" proposal on next
April's city ballot and to protest the
removal of vending machines from
University libraries.
The "weatherization" proposal, ac-
cording to its author Paul Teich, would
set minimum standards for insulation
of rented housing.
IF ENACTED, landlords would be
required to caulk and weatherstrip
their buildings, install storm windows
or similar insulation, tape furnace duc-
ts, and install automatic setback ther-
mostats-which keep an apartment at
its most efficient level of heating by
varying the temperature throughout
the day. Teich, an attorney for Student
Legal Services, said the most expensive
of these requirements, the automatic
thermostats, would cost approximately
$30 to $50 per house or apartment.
Teich said that 3,750 signatures on the
petition are necessary before January 3
for the proposal to be put on the ballot in
April. He also said the proposal had
distinct benefits for all renters,
especially students.
"There are about 20,000 student ren-
ters in Ann Arbor, and if these
measures save each one only $5, that's
$100,000 saved by the student com-
munity," he said. "There are 50,000
renters in total, and we expect these
improvements to save between $50 and
$100 per renter, so the savings are in the
THE ASSEMBLY also approved a
petition campaign to prevent the
removal Hof-vending machines in the
Graduate and Undergraduate
The petition states that removing the
machines will be counter-productive
because it will encourage people to
bring food into the libraries from out-

side and to socialize in the study areas
instead of the lounge.
The libraries are considering taking
the vending machines out of the
buildings completely and, in the Grad,
convert the lounge to a study area.
MSA'S PETITION also defends the
present uses of the lounges, saying they
offer advantages to small study groups
and provide a place for students to
relax for a snack or coffee break.
"There are only two reasons for
taking out the machines: to protect
library materials and to increase study
space" said MSA member Mark
Kleinman. "The UGLI's policy (of
restricting food to the lounge) is so
strictly enforced that there really isn't
a problem, and the amount of stufy
space created would be minimal."
