Cooking at a plan to call for federal
tnoney from the Office of Housing and
Itrban Development (HUD) to renovate
t 4e building and begin a rent subsidy
plan.
This plan would provide income
security and a guaranteed level of oc-
cupancy, but would also require
aiother owner for the building. The
Salvation Army is considering the pur-
chase.
Peterson said the plan is "financially
feasible" if the building changes
ownership.
But Hall said that the Downtown Club
is in an area which is zoned for office
and commercial buildings and that the
property "has a higher value as offices
than as a rooming house."
Hall also said that Peterson's ap-
praisal of the renovation costs about
$8,000, while city estimates are around
$200,000. The club is three times as
valuable when used for office. space
compared to using it as a residential
housing, he said.
Hall added that Peterson hasn't tried
to communicate with him at all on the
matter.
Hall said he met with the Salvation
Army two weeks ago and that they still
haven't decided to purchase the
building.
"To leave (the Downtown Club) open
as a residence is not economically
viable in the first place," said Hall. "In
six years of running the Club," Hall
said, "it's never made a profit."
Hall said he knows of other landlords
who want to rent their buildings as
rooming houses.
"Most people (who have) moved out
are in better or the same situation than
when they were in the Club."
5 Hall said about 20 people were still in
the building yesterday, but they were
not tenants and never had been.
Hall, who said that he kept track of
tenants and helped them relocate, said,
"I haven't seen any city officials do
anything to help the tenants there (at
the Club)."

Levin explains flip-flop
decision in Riley case

L.

LANSING (UPI) - Michigan
Supreme Court Justice Charles Levin
yesterday explained his flip-flop on the
ouster of Justice Dorothy Comstock
Riley, but said he .would not support
Gov. James Blanchard's right to
replace her.
Levin made the comments during a
news conference at which he also said
the court erred in releasing a ruling last
week without having put together a
four-vote majority. He said the court
should apologize to the people of
Michigan for the appearance of con-
fusion and indecision generated by the
case.
It was Levin's vote that turned a 3-3
deadlock leaving Riley on the court into
a 4-2 vote against her.
THE JUSTICE was bluntly asked to
explain to the public the appearance of
disarray generated by the unexpected
turnabout.
"I regret that appearance and I think
we must all assume responsillity for.

conveying that impression," he said.
"I can understand where people
would. . . have that impression,"
Levin continued. "We're responsible
for it. We should apologize to the people
of Michigan."
LEVIN SAID his personal agonizing
over the Riley case began Friday night
after the court issued five separate
opinions which added up to a deadlock.
The 56-year-old Detroiter said he was
concerned that the tie vote would leave
Mrs. Riley's status perpetually in
question.
The justice, however, also said he is
not prepared to support Blanchard's
right to replace the ousted justice. He
said it is improper for the court to
decide whether Blanchard can make
such an appointment because there is
"no concensus of the electorate" on the
issue.
THIS WOULD appear to leave three
justices backing Blanchard's right to
appoint, and three opposing it.

Levin said the matter could be
resolved if one of the court's two
Republican justices agreed to back
Blanchard or if the Legislature passed
a new law on high court appointments.
Former Gov. William Milliken,
meanwhile, issued an uncharac-
teristically scathing statement from his
Traverse City transition office. He said
it appeared the court had bowed to out-
side pressure, creating an impression
which will damage its public image.
Senate Republicans, outraged over
the ouster of their fellow party mem-
ber announced formation of a special
caucus committee on the selection and
election of .high court justices. A
spokesman said no decision has been
made however, on whether to challenge
Blanchard's right to replace Riley.
SENATE REPUBLICAN Leader
John Engler of Mount Pleasant said the
credibility of the high court has been
"seriously damaged, if not irreparably
harmed" and its actions must be sub-
jected to "far greater scrutiny."

significant positive benefits to patient
care delivered in our hospitals."
"There are real strings attached to it
(the money)," Forsyth said. "This is a
one-time only thing and whatever the
money is used for can't go beyond the
current fiscal year."
In the memo addressed to clinical
department chairmen, Forsyth asked
them to submit proposals for the use of
the funds.
HOSPITAL administrators are being
allowed to decide the fate of the money
because most hospital funds do not
come from the University's general
fund, according to University officials.
Because it does not draw money from
the general fund, the hospital would not
be expected to funnel any surplus back
into the fund, said Robert Holbrook,
associate vice president for academic
affairs. Holbrook said he had not been
aware of the hospital's surplus.
Also, the University could not use the
money for general fund purposes
because the hospital relies heavily on
support from outside sources, Holbrook
said.
"(HOSPITAL officials) have to an-
swer to Medicare and Medicaid. And it
also wouldn't be right to take patient-
generated money and apply it to other
parts of the University," he said.
Hospital officials say they have
received suggestions from department
heads and surgeons on how the money
could be spent.
Gary Calhoun, a deputy hospital ad-
ministrator, said he had received input
on how to use the funds and contributed

ideas of his own, but declined to com-
ment on specific proposals.
Although no proposals for the use of
the funds has been approved yet, For-
syth said all the money will be used.
"There are burning needs due to
previous budget cuts and right now we
are attempting to find the most ap-
propriate," he said.
"We aren't just out to spend $500,000.
If we find some area which only needs
$200,000, we'll spend $200,000 and keep
the rest until we find use for it," said
Forsyth.
