Police nab arson suspect

An Ann Arbor man suspected of star-
ting a fire last summer which killed one
city resident and severely burned
another was arrested early Saturday
morning at his home in South Bend,
Ind., South Bend police said yesterday.
Ann Arbor police issued a criminal
warrant last August for Jerry Lee Ed-
wards, 25, in connection with a fire-
bombing at 607 E. Ann St. Edwards

allegedly set the early morning blaze
after arguing with several first-floor
residents over a small amount of stolen
marijuana, police said.
M.L. HARGROW, who lived on the
second floor of the house, was killed in
the fire. His son, 19-year-old Jessie
Hargrow, suffered serious burns and
spent several months in University
Hospital's burn unit.

Edwards is being held at the South
Bend County Jail.
Extradition proceedings are
scheduled for this week, police said.
If Edwards waives the proceedings,
he could be released to Ann Arbor
authorities early this week.
Ann Arbor police held Edwards for
questioning the day of the fire, but
released him due to insufficient eviden-
ce, police said. "Apparently at that
point in time we didn't have enough
evidence to hold him, and he also didn't
have a warrant (against him)," said
Ann Arbor Police Sgt. Harold Tinsey.
The fire nearly destroyed the 14th
century house but its owners have sinee
restored the home.

Two men charged in
pizza parlor killing

Two men suspected of murdering a
Roundhaus Pizza employee last Oc-
tober were arrested and arraigned
yesterday, the Washtenaw County
Sheriff's Department said yesterday.
Thirty-three-year-old James Edward
of Van Buren Township was arraigned
on charges of murder and felony mur-
der (murder committed along with
another felony), and is being held in
Washtenaw County Jail without bond.
Twenty-one-year-old Daniel Burchett of

Ypsilanti Township was arraigned on
charges of assault and intended armed
robbery, and is being held in
Washtenaw County Jail on a $150,000
Warren McIntye was killed the mor-
ning of Oct. 22, while working in the
Roundhaus Pizza in Ypsilanti Town-
ship. McIntye was shot four times with
a 12-gauge shotgun.
A preliminary hearing in 14th District
Court is scheduled in one week.

But Chemistry Professor Billy Joe
Evans argued that the committee's
recommendation is "a document that
makes the University look like an in-
*estment company."
Evans said the University owed it to
:the students to divest. "When our
students think, we are supporting a
racist regime, then we are doing them a
;disservice. It is foolhardy to believe
that this kind of policy (the Sullivan
Principles) can have any impact on
South Africa. If we are to say we want
rpur students to be open-minded, then
the University should demonstrate this
in its policies," said Evans, who
received a standing ovation from the

members to speak on the controversial
Several faculty members agreed that
the Sullivan Principles were ineffec-
tive. "There seems to be an attitude
here that the Sullivan Principles are
cgpable of changing apartheid," said
University Prof. Len Suransky, an out-
spoken opponent of the University's
South African investment policies.
"The principles are the red herring
which has diverted the issue for support
to South Africa," said Suransky, adding
that there are no civil rights for
minorities in South Africa.
ECHOED JOHN Woodford, a public
information officer at University
Hospital: "(The Sullivan Principles)
are a smoke screen to conceal the con-
tinuance of apartheid. Sullivan is an
appropriate name for them, for they
are meant to 'sully' an institution."
Woodford condemned the Sullivan
Principles as the University's "prudent
investment policy," asking, "Was
dropping tea in the Boston Harbor a
prudent investment?"
A student member of the Financial
Affairs Committee said University
policy makers "show a fundamental
arrogance in assuming that the people
in South Africa don't really know
what's in their interest." Divestment
actually can be profitable, said Ben
Davis, citing Michigan State University
as an example.
"By getting rid of industrial com-
panies' securities, Michigan State en-
tered into more profitable companies in

otes for divestment

expanding technological areas and en-
ded up doing better financially."
student who will soon be returning to
South Africa expressed what it is like to
be a minority in the apartheid nation.
"South Africa likes to see itself as a
Western nation," said John Hendricks.
"In fact, South Africa and Reagan are
absolutely smitten with each other."
Hendricks also condemned the
Sullivan Principles. "The principles

may shine the shackles of South African
workers, but they do not open them.
There are two choices, either continued
investment which doesn't really
achieve anything, or divestment."
The University's failure to act will be
interpreted as a sign of support of apar-
theid, said Anthropology Prof. Niara
Sudarkasa. "We need to act to align
ourselves with justice," Sudarkasa

demonstrators hoped to influence
faculty Senate members to back
divestment at their monthly meeting.
.MOST OF THE speakers focused on
the new state law which orders the
University to pull out all its stocks from
companies operating in South Africa.
The University has said the law is un-
constitutional, and has hinted it may
challenge it in court or simply not com-
Speaking from the steps of the
Graduate Library, rally organizer Ben
Davis, told the crowd the University is
contradicting past practice in declaring
the law unconstitutional.
The University has never challenged
state law before, but "when it comes to
South Africa, all of a sudden they are
touting the virtues of civil disobedien-
ce," said Davis.

"I DIDN'T know Harold Shapiro was
such a devotee of Thoreau," he said.
Davis called the principles on which
the University bases its South African
investments "a sham". Those policies,
called the Sullivan Principles, state
that companies operating in South
Africa must promote the advancement
of their non-white employees.
The Sullivan Principles "are actually
a device to try and diffuse the anti-
apartheid, pro-divestment movements
in the U.S. and Europe," Davis said.
