DETROIT (UPI) - Michigan's first
indicted draft resister since the Viet-
nam War said yesterday he is ready to
go to prison if necessary to demonstrate
his belief that draft registration "works
contrary to God's purpose."
Daniel Rutt of Dearborn, a biology
student at Hope College in Holland,
Mich., also said his outspoken resistan-
ce to draft resignation prompted the
government to choose him - and 13
others around the country - for
"I HAVE CHOSEN not to register for
the draft because I believe that is God's
will," Rutt told reporters at a news con-
ference. "I believe that draft
registration works contrary to God's

Asked if he is resigned to prison, he
replied, "if that's where it leads."
RUTT, A Methodist who was born in
Haita where his father was doing alter-
native service as a conscientous objec-
tor, said the current registration law
does not provide for alternative ser-
If it did, he was not sure that would be
compatible with his beliefs.
"I'll have to stay away from the
hypothetical," he said.
RUTT, HIS attorneys and other sup-
porters said there was no doubt he was
targeted because of his high visibility in
the resistance movement.

GENEVA, Switzerland - An emergency OPEC
meeting collapsed yesterday in disagreement over
production quotas - a failure that could force down
oil prices and prolong a worldwide glut.
OPEC did not change its base price of $34 per
barrel, several ministers said.
Conference officials said the 13 Organization of
Petroleum Exporting Countries ministers, who met
Sunday and again for 2% hours yesterday were
unable to reach agreement on the three main issues
of pricing, production quotas and price differentials
for the high grade oil produced by African members.
"WE COULD NOT agree on anything at all," said
Mana Saeed Oteiba, the oil minister of the United

production by the 13 OPEC members. But Oteiba and
Saudi Arabian Oil Ministger Ahmed Zaki Yamani
said there was no agreement on any point. Yamani
said the meeting was a "complete failure."
The possibility was left open that Saudi Arabia
could carry out its implied threat to reduce its price if
there was no agreement, which could touch off a
series of price cuts around the world and undermine
OPEC's already eroding power over prices.
YAMANI SAID saudi Arabia would not cut the
Saudi price without consent of other cartel members.
"We don't want to start a price war," he said.
International bankers fear that a sudden and large
drop in prices could lead to default on billions of
dollars of loans to countries such as Mexico and
Venezuela which depend on oil sales for national in-

for rental units
By JACKIE YOUNG
Until more information can be obtained on how
assaults committed in homes are linked to
locked and unlocked doors, the Ann Arbor City
Council has decided to put off its decision on a
new crime prevention plan.
The proposed city ordinance would require
landlords to install heavier deadbolt locks on en-
try doors and add secure window locks and dowel
rods for sliding doors.
SIXTY PERCENT of all illegal entries into
residences are due to security problems such as
defective locks and unlocked doors, said Ann Ar-
bor Police Detective Jerry Wright.
If passed, the proposed ordinance "will have
an impact on crime experienced in rental units,"
A number of landlords spoke against the
proposed ordinance at last night's meeting, but
the proposal's sponsor, Councilmember Lowell
Peterson (D-First Ward), said landlords might
benefit from its passage.
According to Peterson, a member of the Com-
mittee for Rape Prevention, an Ann Arbor
woman sued her landlord last year after she was
raped in an improperly secured home. She was
awarded $170,000 settlement.
THE ORDINANCE would also make houses
and apartments safer for tenants, Peterson said.
A similar law passed in Madison, Wis., in 1981
resulted in a 47 percent decrease in the number
of rapes committed in rental units, he said.
Harry Ahrens, a spokesman for State Farm
Insurance, said the ordinance could provide lan-
dlords with a discount of up to 5 percent on their
insurance premiums. Other added security
devices, such as smoke alarms, could cut in-
surance rates for landlords by as much as 15
The Assault Crisis Center, the Michigan
Student Assembly, and the Public Interest
Research Group in Michigan have all endorsed
the proposed ordinance.
