Thousands of jubilant
fans down goal posts

IN BRIEF
Compiled from Associated Press and
United Press International reports
Walesa reportedly released,

(Continued from Page 1)
short of their goal.
Some of the officers reasoned with
the fans, asking them to leave the field.
All had their sticks in hand, and one or
two poked at individuals who came too
close.
For Officer Walt Willard, however,
the crowd came too close.
"THERE were a few of them, they
were all pushing," said one student who
asked not to be identified, "and this cop
just hit one of them in the head.
"I said, 'give me a handkerchief,
We've got to stop this guy's bleeding,' "
the student added later, "and the cop
reached for his handkerchief, but
another cop looked at him and said 'no.'
Then he put the handkerchief away and
picked up his stick."
ACCORDING to police, the injured
fan was fighting with a female
auxiliary officer when Willard came
upon the two. After a brief struggle with
Willard, the officer "clipped the guy
with his nightstick" when trying to
block a punch from the fan, according
to Ann Arbor police Lt. Duane Weber.
Both the fan, who was identified only
as a student from a Toronto University,
and Willard were treated and released
from University Hospital. Weber said
the fan would be charged either with
assault and battery or assault on a
police officer.
Other altercations between police
and fans resulted in no serious injuries,
however.
GRADUALLY, the crowd dissipated,

and the north goal post remained stan-
ding. The other uprights had long since
been brought crashing to the ground by
the larger mob.
After the successful seige in the south
end zone yesterday afternoon, several
fanspicked up the downed goal post and
tcarried it out of the stadium, down
State Street, and finally to President
Harold Shapiro's doorstep.
As they posed on his porch for a
photograph, President Shapiro and his
wife arrived home from the game. The
fans asked him to join them in the
photograph, and mumbling something
like "make it fast," one said, Shapiro
smiled with the ecstatic fans.
THE GOAL post took longer to tear
down this year than in years past. In
fact, the athletic department had
strenghtened the base with steel and
concrete to withstand the assault, ac-
cording to Robert Flora, athletic depar-
tment plant manager.
The athletic department is concerned
less with the cost of replacing the posts
(about $3,500) than the safety of the
fans, Flora said.
"When those things come down,
people can really get hurt," Flora said.
But some spectators observed that
the "fan resistent" goal posts crashed
to the field much harder than in other
years after finally being broken, in-
creasing the possibility of injuries.
Staff writer Charles Thomson
filed a report for this story.

Just in case Pres. and Mrs. Shapiro missed the game, exuberant Michigan
fans presented them with a victory present at their house. Something for the
president who has everything-a piece of goal post.

City Council splits on downtown development

(continued from Page 1)
Council already has approved the
conversion of the downtown "Y" Club
at the corner of Fourth and Huron from
low-income housing to office space.
Peterson said he is concerned that
Brown Court, another low-income
housing unit, near the Farmer's
Market, will turn into more expensive
housing, like condominiums, under the
plan.
John Swisher III, chairman of the
DDA, said the specific goals of the
project are not to increase or improve
low-income housing, although he said
those goals are a concern.
"I CAME TO the group as a parking
advocate and I don't deny it," said
Swisher, secretary and treasurer of
Swisher Realty. "If there isn't enough

parking, it discourages people from
coming downtown-instead they will go
to the malls," he said.
But Raphael Ezekiel (D-Third
Ward), agreeing about the importance
of drawing shoppers downtown, says
more parking is only a superficial
treatment of the problem.
"Downtown must offer a diversity of
stores," Ezekiel said. "People have to
be able to shop for eight to 10 different
things in one afternoon like they do in
malls.
"WE CAN'T afford to lose downtown
as a retail shopping place. If we lose
that, we're in a mess," he said. "If you
have high-tech offices all over the
place, there you'd be with a deserted
downtown."

According to Ezekiel, hard economic
times for retailers will force them to
convert their buildings into more
profitable offices, and will lead to less
new retail investment. The answer, he
says, lies in a proposal by the
democrats that would require all
ground floor space to be used only for
retail businesses.
According to the republicans,
however, the proposals doesn't have a
chance because, they say, the market
will take care of itself.
"HUNDREDS OF entrepreneurs are
aware of the situation, and as more of-
fice structures go up, it makes the
remaining retail businesses more
profitable," said Edward Hood (R-
Fourth Ward). "Retail will come about

without government getting involved.
Supply and demand will take care of
it," he said.
Republican Mayor Louis Belcher said
the effects of the Development
Authority's proposal will extend beyond
the downtown area. "The downtown is
the core of the city, and it is the first to
rot," Belcher said. "If you strengthen
that core, then all use that emanates
from that will be strengthened."
Belcher said he fears downtown will
become "blighted and empty" like the
downtowns of several other Michigan
cities. "The DDA was implemented to
insure the public works can be built and
those will be stable influences
promoting private enterprise to
flourish for the next 25 years," he said.

but has not surfaced
WARSAW, Poland- Solidarity union chief Lech Walesa failed to surface
after the martial-law government said it freed him, and speculation grew
that he was still in custody or spirited to a secret place by the church.
About 500 people screaming "Long live Solidarity!" and "We want
Lech!" ringed Walesa's family home in the northern seaport of Gdansk
awaiting his arrival during a daylong vigil, but he did not arrive by nightfall.
Walesa's reported release from 11 months in internment came two days
after the communist government announced it was freeing him because he
was no longer considered a political threat.
Interior Ministry officials said yesterday that Walesa left the government
resort in southeast Poland where he had spent six months of his 11 months in
confinement. But conflicting reports emerged on Walesa's whereabouts af-
ter he failed to arrive in Gdansk.
The fact that no word had been received form Walesa by his family
suggested he was still in the custody of security officers taking him either to
Warsaw or Gdansk, or had been taken in by Roman Catholic Church
officials.
Soviets pay respects to Brezhnev
MOSCOW - Tens of thousands of Soviet citizens filed past Leonid
Brezhnev's open casket yesterday in a two-mile line tightly guarded by
troops, police, roadblocks and checkpoints.
For the second straight day, Soviets trekked six abreat, silently and som-
berly paying respects to Brezhnev, whose body lay in state in the downtown
House of Unions.
Central Moscow was sealed off. Thousands of police in gray wool over-
coats and soldiers in brown uniforms patrolled streets and intersections,
turning back all who lacked proper passes.
In Washington, President Reagan, making his first visit to the Soviet Em-
bassy, yesterday offered condolences to Brezhnev's family and the wish that
"our two peoples live in peace" together.
Ambassadors and other high-ranking diplomats from the 112 foreign em-
bassies in Moscow came to Red Square to offer their condolences at the hall
were Brezhnev lay.
Veterans march past
new memorial
WASHINGTON - About 150,000 flag-waving Americans yesterday gave a
belated welcome home to Vietnam veterans, who marched down Con-
stitution Avenue to dedicate their new stark black granite memorial.
More than 8,000 veterans marched in blustery weather to warm cheers - a
sharp contrast to the cold silence that greeted them a decade ago when they
came home from the nation's longest and most unpopular war.
Thousands of veterans, many holding the hands of their children and
wives, then converged on the Mall for the dedication of the controversial
Vietnam Veterans Memorial, inscribed with the names of 57,939 comrades
who were killed or missing in action in Southeast Asia.
U.S. Park Police said 150,000 people attended the parade and dedication.
Among those in the procession was Ret. Gen. William Westmoreland, who
commanded the U.S. troops in Vietnam.
Escapee admits to 31 killings
BECKLEY, W. Va. - A 34-year-old man who "knows he did wrong and
thinks he should pay for it" has confessed to killing 31 people, many of them ;
professional men with whom he had sexual encounters, authorities said
yesterday.
Bruce Davis, a drifter who had been arrested in West Virginia and fdnd to
be an escapee from an Ilinois prison where he was'serving time for two
killings, said he killed 30 men from 1969 to 1971, according to Fayette County
Sheriff's Cpl. Charles Bryant.
In addition, he confesed to the death of a prison guard, who was found axed
after Davis' escape, police said. The total number also includes the two
people he was convicted of killing.
Police from Illinois, New York City, Los Angeles, Reno, Nev., and v
Washington, D.C., interviewed Davis in his Fayette County jail cell and are
investigating his confessions of killings in their areas, according to Capt.
Terry Delaney of the Illinois Department of Law Enforcement.
In addition, Virginia authorities want to question Davis about a killing
there, said Fayette Prosecutor Paul Blake Jr.
Davis has not been charged in any of the deaths. Authorities have confir-
med that 12 of the slayings occurred, Bryant said.
Social securit 'here to stay'
WASHINGTON - A presidentia commission voted yesterday to assure
Americans Social "is here to stay," but agreed on only one idea to meet a
$200 billion shortfall - requiring more workers to join the system.
"It's come out in total less than what I would have hoped, but certainly far
in excess of what I realistically expected," Chairman Alan Greenspan told
the National Commission on Social Security Reform as it wrapped up a
three-day meeting aimed at agreeing on recommendations.
Greenspan said the panel arrived at consensus not only how much Social
Security needs and that it should be stabilized, but also that the system needs
no radical changes, such as a conversion to a voluntary system.
But for the first time, liberal Democrats on the panel indicated they are
willing to delay next summer's cost-of-living increase for the 36 million
Social Security beneficiaries as part of the solution.
That move was discussed in private as part of a proposed rescue plan that
would involve a payroll tax hike in 1984 to generate most of the cash to cover
the deficit of $150 billion to $200 billion facing the system over the next seven
years.

Beleher vetoes controversial survey

(Continued from Page 1)
"He (Ezekiel) just made a mistake,"
Hood said, adding that he doesn't think
the psychology professor had any
malicious intentions.
Lowell Peterson (D-First Ward)
blasted the veto as "purely political,"
and said it unnecessarily crippled a
valuable project. 'A survey is a sur-
vey," he said. "The veto is shameful.
It doesn't make any sense. It's just
such a petty thing to do."
"I don't thnk the Republican caucus
can hide behind the mayor's hot-
headedness," he added.
THE FATE OF the survey, designed
to help the city's Community Develop-
ment Department determine the needs
of Ann Arbor's public housing tenants,
is uncertain. Louis Velcker (R-Fifth
Ward) said the council would have to
reassess the project to determine its
goals and usefulness.
Ezekiel said that, although he thinks
the project will go on, "part of the price
of (my) mistake is that the survey is
held up for a while."

'A survey is a survey . . . the veto is
shameful. It doesn't make any sense.',

P.

Another part is that the students, who
have devoted considerable time
preparing for the project, will have to
drop it.
THE STUDENTS expected to begin
the survey today, and spent Thursday's
class planning the survey teams and
the areas of the city they would can-
vass.
Ezekiel called each one yesterday to
tell them the project was called off.
Michael Karpovich, a senior in the
class, said although the students
benefited from the "practical ex-
periensce" of preparing for the survey,
he was disappointed at not being able to
carry the project through to the end.
Ezekiel said that, beyond the disap-
pointment, "I don't think there will be
any drastic effect." The class will now
be able to study a broader spectrum of
methods, he said.
THE HUMAN services survey
questions were developed by students
working with Ezekiel and city em-
ployees, according to Dalton, one of the
students.
"The survey went through four draf-
ts," she said, addiing that she doesn't
think the questions can be improved by

anyone else the city might hire. 'Our
input was very productive," she said.
Ezekiel said it would be possible to
hire an outside firm to do the survey,
but that it would be quite expensive.
Reflecting on the entire controversy,
Ezekiel said that if he had considered
the idea more carefully over the past
few months, he might have decided that
it would be wrong for his students to
participate.
. "I am disturbed to have used bad
judgement, but on the other hand I'm
feeling I'd rather (make the mistake)
than to be perfectly wise and sit back
and do nothing."
