The Ann Arbor Inn may be a long way
from Las Vegas, but gambling fans can
go there to get a taste of the casino life
tonight and tomorrow at the second an-
nual Millionaires' Party benefit for the
Michigan Theatre.
For a $5 cover . charge, partygoers
can pick up a free drink and the chance
to spend their cash at the gaming
tables. The benefit will also feature a
raffle with prizes that include all-
expenses-paid trips for two to Hawaii,
Washington, D.C., and Atlantic City, as
well as many smaller items awarded in
the hour.
THE PROFITS from the two
evenings will benefit the Michigan
Community Theater Foundation, the
non-profit organization that operates
the Michigan Theater.
Michigan Theatre managing director
Russell Collins said the theatre foun-
dation hopes to top the success of last

'heater
year's party, where 6,000 people raised
more than $15,000 to aid the opeation of
the theater.
"We're looking to raise more than
last year, and because of the generosity
of area merchants, we may be able to
do this. Almost everything we need has
been donated," Collins said.
THE MICHIGAN Theatre features
various forms of entertainment ranging
from movies to live concerts, and rents
space to many University and com-
munity organizations. "We hope we
can raise enough capital to do better and
more interesting things," Collins said.
Mayor Louis Belcher will host the
benefit, which will run from 4 p.m. to 2
a.m. each night. Winners can earn a
maximum of $500 per person each night
and the Theatre Foundation will award
a total of $5,000 per night.
Anyone 18 years of age or older may
attend the benefit by purchasing tickets
at the Michigan Theatre or at the door.

Democratic Ann Arbor mayoral can-
didates Thomas Blessing and Leslie
Morris managed to avoid stepping on
each other's toes during a debate last
night by heaping criticism upon
Republican incumbent Mayor Louis
Belcher.
An attentive crowd of about 50 people
applauded as the candidates discussed
a number of issues including corporate
tax breaks, social services, and down-
town development.
BOTH CANDIDATES carefully
avoided criticizing the other at the Ann
Arbor Public Library debate, spon-

sored by the Ann Arbor Democratic
Party. "Leslie is a very talented,
capable person,' Blessing said of his
opponent. He added he did not feel their
close competition for the Democratic
bid would splitthe party in April's
general election.
Morris was equally tactful in
asessing Blessing. "I think he's a nice
guy," she said. "I thought the debate
was fun." Like Blessing, Morris saved'
her criticism for Belcher.
Morris criticized Belcher's "Texas"
development mentality. "Mayor
Belcher's planning principle is if it's big.
and if it's expensive, then it'sd good,"
she said.
