Candidates battle for city's top spot

Belcher: Mayor



Morris says Belcher
has too much power

is to be aggressive

Democratic mayoral candidate
Leslie Morris may think that Mayor
Louis Belcher is too aggressive and
runs the city like a dictator. Belcher
would probably tell her there's no such
thing as a "too aggressive" mayor.
"I may be too much of a leader for
her, and I may take too much initiative,
but that's my job as mayor, I think, and
that's what the city charter says I'm
supposed to do," Belcher said.

Judging from the criticism Belcher
and Morris have leveled at each other,
this year's mayoral race promises to be
as colorful as it will be close.

Belcher, running for his third term as
mayor of Ann Arbor, has spent much of
his time fighting the "King Louis"
image and staving off attacks made by
his Democratic opponent that he has

For Democratic mayoral candidate
Leslie Morris, the personality of
Republicap incumbent Lou Belcher is
the major issue of this year's election.
"He's off the deep end, way off the deep
end," Morris said. "I think he's lost it
... I don't think he understands what's
going on and I think some people have
found that out. I think they're taking
advantage of him."
Morris, who has served three terms

as 2nd Ward city councilwoman, feels
Mayor Belcher is trying to run the city
all by himself. "All he is, is one mem-
ber of an 11-member council. He
doesn't understand that," Morris said.
"Strong direction (in city government)
is a group strong direction, not an in-
dividual strong direction."
Morris is not favored to win the elec-
tion at this point, but has gained some
ground in her campaign through at-
tacks on Belcher's supposed mishan-
dlings of the Ann Arbor Airport expan-

... defends his actions

not aware
of facts
University President Harold Shapiro
yesterday refuted many of the
"misperceptions" that members of the
community have about the University's
financial priorities.
Speaking at Campus Meet the
Press, Shapiro criticized the notion that
money was being taken away from the
humanities in order to boost technical
research. He said that outside of faculty
salaries, more money from the Univer-
sity's budget reallocation process has
gone to libraries than anything else.
SHAPIRO compared the $250,000
recently given to a new molecular
genetics research center to almost $6
million that hasp been shifted to the

LSA reviews theater
and drama department

A seven-member committee is studying the University's
theater and drama department to determine if it should
remain within LSA, University officials say.
The committee, which began meeting the first week of
March is "looking at the question of the relation and place of
theater in the University," according to Associate Vice
President for Academic Affairs Bob Holbrook.
HE SAID THAT THE department, which is currently part
of LSA, could possibly move to another school, such as music,
become an independent program, or remain within LSA.
"The department of drama, with an emphasis on perfor-
mance, is different in many ways from other liberal arts
departmentsin LSA,"causing University officials to question
whether LSA meets the department's needs as well as other
parts of the University could, Holbrook said.
While administrators see the theater and drama programs
as performance oriented, some department faculty members
maintain that the program belongs with other liberal ars
programs within LSA.
"(THE DEPARTMENT) HAS been and remains an
academic program," said Lindsey Nelson, associate director
of the Professional Theatre Program. Nelson said he felt that
at the undergraduate level, the department is not very dif-
ferent from other LSA departments.,

Theater department faculty and administrators agree that
the review was suggested'by LSA, and not initiated by the
"We're not a part of or in favor of" the evaluation of
whether or not the department will remain in LSA, Nelson
said. "But if the college of LSA deems it proper, that is cer-
tainly their perogative."
DEPARTMENT CHAIRMAN Walter Eysselinck said he
thinks that the review is an attempt "to determine where in
the university a complex unit like the theater department
But he added that he thought the review might have a little
to do with financial concerns, adding that this should be ex-
pected when a University is facing economic difficulties.
When the discussion turns to the question of "the best use of
money," he said, "all these words like 'duplication' start to
EYSSELINCK SAID HE has faith that "search is being
conducted by competent people," and will arrive at the best
While Eysselinck said he is hesitant to discuss the review
at thistpoint, other faculty members say they hope to stay
where they are.

The New graduation ceremony
F YOU CAN find a better speaker, then don't
come. That may be the theme of this year's
commencement ceremonies, when Lee Iacocca,
chairman of Chrysler Corp., comes to give the annual

doctnr of law degree at the Anril 30 ceremony. 0

An over-the-counter White Castle burger costs 24 cents in
St. Louis, where 18 restaurants are located. The hotline was
established because of the growing number of displaced
Midwest residents who find themselves hankering for a
"bomber." St. Louisans living in Fountain Hills, a suburb of
Phoenix, Ariz., annually hold "White Castle Days" during
which huge numbers of the burgers are frozen and trucked
in. A White Castle spokesman said three tractor-trailers
will be used to deliver 125,000 of the burgers to Fountain
Hills in.May.

During the past 12 years, said Dr. Steven Goldsmith of
Springfield, Mass., he has stopped hiccups by massaging
the mouth's palate with a cotton swab for about a minute at
its center point, just beyond the spot where the soft and
hard palates meet on the roof of the mouth. "It involves no
special medical equipment and can easily be performed at
home by a layperson who is trying to help a friend or
relative suffering from hiccups," Goldsmith wrote in a
recently published letter to the Journal of the American
Medical Association. His letter came in response to a
