Detroit gunman holds
police at bay 4 hours
DETROIT (UPI) - A gunman
described as despondent over personal
problems held police at bay for nearly
four hours at a house across the street
from two schools and then surrendered
peacefully yeserday, police said.
Police said Paul Coleman, 27, was
taken to Receiving Hospital for obser-
vation after giving himself up on the
front porch of the home where he lived
NO SHOTS were fired and no one was
injured during the standoff, but studen-
ts at the Van Zile Elementary School
were temporarily evacuated to nearby
:Foster Junior High School to keep them
out of the direct line of fire, police said.
Van Zile Principal Evelyn Crane said
there was no panic among students
during the switch. School officials said
lasses resumed their normal schedule
after the standoff ended.
Coleman's mother, Ida Foster, said
he had been despondent since before,
Christmas because he had no job and
his live-in girlfried had left him, taking
their child with her.
POLICE cordoned off three city
blocks and escorted students arriving
for classes at the two schools to rear en-
trances officers set up a command post
and had sporadic telephone conver-
sations with Coleman, police said.
Coleman had been drinking and
taking drugs prior to the standoff,
police said, and had called a suicide
prevention center sometime during the
night. Officials at the center called the
Police said Coleman apparently had
several weapons in the house, including
a machine gun.
A neighbor who spoke to Coleman by
telephone during the standoff quoted
him as saying the only way he would
come out of the house was with "a red
tag on his toe."
A woman who lives next door said she
saw Coleman standing at a window with
a gun strapped to his hip about 6 a.m.

Some day, vitally important metals
and minerals may be mined not only
from the Earth, but from the Moon or
even the planet Mercury, U.S. and
European scientists speculate.
The scientists, including University
Atmospheric and Oceanic Science Prof.
Andrew Nagy, are members of a newly-
formed international panel designed to
chart the future of space exploration.
"WE'VE JUST whetted our appetite
in space exploration," said Nagy, one of
five U.S. professors appointed by the
National Academy of Sciences to the 10-
member international group.
Created due to concern over limited
funds for space exploration, the com-
mittee marks the first time an inter-
national group has met to study space
exploration. U.S. participation in the
panel is crucial at this time, Nagy said,
adding that -although initially a
forerunner in space research, the
nation's space program has stagnated
drastically in the last decade. Nagy
said the Galileo mission to Jupiter five
years ago was the last new planetary
"Do you realize that in 1986, Japan,
the Soviet Union, and several European
countries will study Halley's Comet on
its once in a lifetime passage through
the inner solar system, but that the U.S.
has passed up the opportunity to send a
spacecraft to intercept it? In effect, the
U.S. is giving up its leadership in space
exploration. We're not following up on
the spectacular gains we've made in
THE INTERNATIONAL group,
composed primarily of professors, in-
tends to come up with a series of
missions to the "inner" planets - Mer-
cury, Venus, Mars - and the Earth's
moon, as well as to asteroids and small
comets which could be beneficial to
NASA or the European Space Agency.
The group decided to study the inner
rather than the outer planets because of
their potentially high scientific yield.
The planets also cost considerably less
to explore, fitting into the group's
The inner planets offer possible sour-
ces of metals and minerals which might
be utilized by the Earth in the future.
Scientists think the Earth's moon may
have significant amounts of water
trapped at its poles. Discovery of such a
resource as water would increase the
likelihood of one day establishing a
lunar base, which could draw from
these lunar wells.'The panel will study
asteroids as well, which are also
believed to be potential mineral sour-
TRADITIONALLY, Nagy said, inner
planetary exploration of the solar
system has been studied to find out how
the system evolved. Some scientists
argue that by studying the other
planets, more can be learned about the
Earth, he said.
