Local,
performers
to aid
anti-nuke
movement,
By HALLE CZECHOWSKI
University students will be giving the
arms race the old song and dance this
month at a benefit to aid the local
nuclear disarmament movement.
Local singers, dancers, speakers and
performers will gather at the Union
Jan. 29 in an effort to raise money for
several nuclear disarmament groups,
such as the Interfaith Council for
Peace, the Michigan Nuclear Weapons
Freeze, and the Women's International
League for Peace and Freedom.
"ALSO," SAID benefit organizer;
Jessee Richards, "I'm trying to
spotlight local entertainers who often
play in bars and never get heard."
More than 20 acts will perform during
the course of the evening. Some of
them, like the University Mime Troupe
and Madcat Ruth, are familiar to Ann
Arbor audiences.
All of the performers are appearing
for free, in exchange for free publicity.
In addition to the entertainers, booths
from various disarmament groups will
be set up so people can ask questions
about the movement. "This is a real
good opportunity to see the faces of
people who give a shit about the issue,"
Richards said.
The show is funded by the Michigan
Student Assembly, LSA Student Gover-
nment, and the Office of Student Ser-
vices. Tickets cost $5 and are available
at Discount Records, Herb David's
Guitar Studio, and at the door.

Shootout claims
seven after
officer slain

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Police
stormed a house and killed seven
religious zealots yesterday in a futile
attempt to save a fellow officer who had
been taken hostage and tortured before
he was slain, authorities said.
A police assault team lobbed tear gas
into the modest residence of a former
mental patient, opened fire with
automatic weapons, and burst into the
house shortly after 3 a.m.
KILLED IN the shootout was Lin-
dburg Sanders, 49, an unemployed con-
struction worker who the mayor said
described himself as "the black Jesus,"
and six other members of a religious
group that believed the world was
coming to an end. Authorities said the
group also thought of police as "anti-
Christ" agents of the devil.
Also found dead was Patrolman R. S.
Hester 34, who had been taken captive
by Sanders on Tuesday.
Police said they ere met by gunfire
from at least two rooms of the three-
bedroom house whose windows had
been nailed shut. The doors were
barricaded with furniture.
THE STANDOFF started Tuesday
night when police received a telephone
call saying a purse snatcher was at the
house.

Holt said he thinks Hester and
patrolman R. O. Schwill were lured to
Sanders' home and were attacked as
soon as they arrived.
Schwill was shot in the face and hand
but escaped. He was reported in
satisfactory condition at a Memphis
hospital.
PATROLMAN Thomas Turner,
called in to aid officers in distress, was
beaten over the head with a pistol but
escaped with minor injuries.
Other officers quickly surrounded the
house and a command post was set up
at a grammar school across the street.
Roadblocks were set up as police cor-
doned off, the area. The school was
closed, andsharpshooters took up
positions on its roof.
Officers outside the house heard from
Hester only once, about 6:30 a.m. Wed-
nesday when he shouted from a win-
dow.
"Give them whatever they ask for,"
he said.

(Continued from Page 1).'
Several landlords objected par-
ticularly to a provision in the proposal
which would require them to install
digital thermostats which tenants could
program to turn on and off
automatically at certain times
throughout the day.
The property owners insisted that the

devices were too expensive and im-
practical. Some said they were afraid
student tenants might damage or
destroy the devices.
BUT BEA Hanson, a leader of the
Coalition for Better Housing, which
fought to get the question on the April
ballot, said the standards are needed

minority population."
Andrews was joined at the podium by
University doctoral candidate Les
Thornton, who stressed the broader
issue of racism outside the University.
"ASK ANY black in the United States
if the United States is racist," Thornton
said, "I doubt you'll get any argumen-
ts."
Thornton said the racial problems of

the country are mirrored at the Univer-
sity. "Can you name any black intellec-
tuals?" he asked. "It's only been recen-
tly that a number of women have been
thought of as intellectual."

because "in more and more rental
units, tenants are paying for heat."
When landlords aren't, paying the
bills, she said, they have no incentive to
make their properties more energy-
efficient. She pointed out that the stan-
dards should not be an excessive bur-
den for landlords because they are
allowed to improve their properties
gradually over nine years.
