Bishops debate criticizing
U.S. nuclear arms strategy
WASHINGTON (AP)- The nation's
Roman Catholic bishops argued
yesterday over whether to condemn
American nuclear strategy, with some
assailing the proposed move as under-
mining resistance to Soviet aggression.
But other bishops said the disputed
declaration, which would preclude even
a U.S. threat to use nuclear weapons,
upholds Christian teaching and enhan-
ces chances for peace.
THE DEBATE came in the opening
hours of a four-day meeting of the
National Conference of Catholic
Bishops, most of it to focus on the draft
pastoral letter over nuclear policy.
"It minimizes concern for the
horrible suffering of those enslaved by
Communism," Archbishop Philip Han-
nan of New Orleans said of the draft.
"It lacks proportional recognition of the
oppression and aggression of the
But Archbishop John Quinn of San
Francisco called it a "balanced
document" of "strong and clear moral
principles" that recognized the Soviet
threat and need for defense but that
also says a "decisive no to nuclear
MORE THAN a year in drafting and
redrafting, the planned teaching letter
on peace has stirred extensive dissent
in the church and criticism from U.S.
administration defense officials.
It condemns any first-strike use of
nuclear weapons or their targeting on
installations near population cen-
ters-both now enunciated as
necessary options in U.S. strategic
The document also denounces any in-
tention or threat to use nuclear arms,
calls for a nuclear freeze and offers
only qualified support even to
possessing such weapons as a
deterrent, calling it tolerable only if
disarmament also is being pursued.
IN THE opening round of debate, Ar-
chbishop Terence Cooke of New York-.
said the document "has the potential of
seriously dividing the church and the
He said it fails to point up the chur-
ch's "just war" tradition and the rights
of defense against aggression.
Cardinal John Krol of Philadelphia
said the document recognizes the "har"
sh realities" and necessity of defensd
against tyranny, but that the "massive
destruction" of nuclear weapons "ex-
ceeds the right of self-defense."
Archbishop Raymond Hunthausen of
Seattle termed the document "in
keeping with the Gospel." He called
nuclear deterrence strategy the "root
cause of the arms race" and "nuclear
idolatry" that is "profoundly anti-
The U.S. apostolic delegate, Arch-
bishop Pio Laghi, representing the
Pope in this country, commended the
bishops for tackling the difficult issue.
"It is safe to say you will encounter
criticism," he said. "Indeed you have
already encountered it."

The Anderson home, built in the 1840's, features four pillars and is one of two
Greek Revival houses in Ann Arbor.

Ann Arbor in 1846. Long stretches of
open farmland. Dirt roads leading to
and from a small village. Small
wooded areas within a vast coun-
tryside. During that year, Major
William Anderson built a small country
farmhouse for his family.
Today the house at 2301 Packard
looks much the same as it did in the
1840s. It has been preserved and
renovated throughout its 136-year
history by various owners, and since
last August the Anderson House has;
been listed in the National Register of
ANDERSON built a temple-style
Greek Revival house with a rec-
tangular block exterior featuring four
pillars supporting the portico of the
roof. It is one of two Greek Revival
houses in Ann Arbor; the second is 'the
Kemp House, located on Division
Street. There is some historical
evidence that the Kemps and Ander-
sons were political rivals.
The Michigan History Division and
the State Historic Preservation
Review Board nominated the Anderson
House for a place - along with the
Kemp House - on the National
"The house was chosen as one of the
best examples in the state of Greek
Revival homes and for its age," said
the Rev. Douglas Evett, pastor of St.
Clare of Assisi Episcopal Church,
current owner of Anderson House. "It
now generally reflects an interior and
exterior style appropriate to Michigan
in the 1840s."
THREE generations of the Anderson
Family lived in the house. In 1937, Dr.
Inez Wisdom purchased it as a home for
herself and a friend, Gertrude Griffith.
Wisdom helped found the St. Clare
Episcopal Church in 1953 by donating
Done-half of the Anderson House proper-
ty on which the church now stands.
When Wisdom died in 1965, Griffith
moved out and gave the rest of the
property and the house to St. Clare.
The church didn't do much with the
house during the next few years, and its
upkeep began to be a financial burden,
according to Evett. Finally, in the
spmmer of 1982, St. Clare decided to
rent the house and property to Old
Town Hall Realty for offices.
"The house had become a financial
drain on the parish because it was not
generating any income," said Bruce
Johnson, chairman of the committee
'that worked on registering the house.
"The church wanted to insure
restoration and protection without
destroying the integrity of the house."
OLD TOWN Realty now is respon-
sible for the upkeep of the house, John-
son said. Already, the company and
church have financed major
renovations, according to Pat Ballard,
co-owner of Old Town Hall.
Changes' included restoration of the
woodwork and floors, addition of carpet
and flourescent lights, and painting and

wallpapering, Ballard said. The
original glass is still in the panes of the
living room windows, and antiques
were added to recreate the farmhouse
One of the few noticeable changes in
the exterior of the house is a chimney -
fireplaces weren't necessary when it
was built, because stoves were used for
Although the realty company said it
would not remove the chimney in the in-
terests of historical accuracy, it will

side of the house by one of the previous
The interior, which also remains
largely intact, is simple but impressive.
The first floor contains a kitchen with
built-in cupboards, a storage room, a
living room and dining room, and a
A decorative pine bannister leads up-
stairs to two bedrooms and a bathroom.
The bedrooms are marked by low,
slanted ceilings and small windows set
low in the walls.
"The house is unchanged except for a
few reconstructions of the wiring and
plumbing," Johnson said. "There is
some indication that the stairway went
a different direction. Instead of coming
up from the front, it looks as if it came
up from the side," he said.
"This sort of business, preserving an
old house or converting it for another
use while maintaining its appearance,
is valuable for the community,"he said.
"It is a piece of the last century
brought forth into this century.'"

Nevertheless, some students did vote,
and each had a different reason.
Markley resident Mike Shugalt said he
voted because one of his friends was
running for office. He added that he
had no interest in the issues and thought
the LSA-SG did "nothing" for students.
Sophomore Jon Gould, a former
student government member,
disagreed, saying he thought the LSA-
SG was "one of the better (student
governments) in having a purpose and
