upheld in
slaying of
'Ann Arbor
cab driver
LANSING (UPI) - The' Michigan
Court of Appeals yesterday affirmed
Timothy Hughes' conviction in the
slaying of an Ann Arbor cab driver.
r According to the court, Hughes took a
taxi driven by Eleanor Bailey from Ann
Arbor to Pinckney on Dec. 22,1980.
Shortly after arriving, he got in a
fight with his girlfriend, Marilyn
Creekmore, and stabbed her. When she
ran to a nearby policeman seeking help,
Hughes stabbed her again and lunged
at the officer.
Later that evening, Bailey's body was
found abandoned on a gravel road in
Livingston County. Her clothing and the
Fab were found soaked with blood.
Hughes was convicted in Livingston
County Circuit Court of first-degree
murder, assault and felonious assault.
THE APPEALS court upheld a ruling
that statements Hughes made in a
hospital to a police detective were
voluntary, even though he had received
"We note particularly that defendant
was interrogated well after receiving
an injection of morphine and that the
1rial judge was able to listen to defen-
dant's voice as it was recorded on Dec.
29, 1980," the court said.
The appeals court also said photos of
the victim, the roadway where her
clothes were found and the interior of
the cab were properly admitted as
"These photographs indicate the ex-
tent of the victim's injuries and were
substantially necessary or instructive
to the issue of deliberation and
kremeditation," the court said.
The appeals judges also found the
evidence of premeditation was
adequate, noting Hughes purchased a
knife on the day of the killing, the vic-
tim was stabbed in the face, nec and
chest and the murder occurred in a
secluded location.
In another case, the court reversed a
man's Detroit conviction for teaming
up with a woman to sexually molest a
Kecond woman. The appeals court said
e victim allegedly went to the house
of a woman she thought of as a friend
only to be forced to strip at gunpoint
and sexually assaulted.

U.S. fast food industry
detrimental to ramforests

"I'm zooming all the time," says Richard Block, who, like
millions of other Americans, grabs fast food when he's short
on time. But Block, a lecturer in the School of Natural
Resources, only eats chicken sandwiches - rather than
hamburgers - at fast food joints, because the consumption
of fast food hamburgers is a primary reason for the destruc-
tion of tropical rainforests in Central and South America.
In an article in the latest issue of the Michigan Alumnus,
Block argues that grazing cattle, raised largely to serve the
American fast food industry, are quickly eating up the
forests. Because the topsoil in the rainforests is so thin, he
says, it is quickly drained of important nutrients, forcing cat-
tle ranchers to clear more land for grazing.
"IT'S A TRAGEDY - It's very, very sad," Block said in an

interview this week. Once the rainforests are leveled, the
wildlife that once lived there "just disappear," he said.
"They hve nowhere else to go."
Habitat modification - not hunting by humans - is the
major cause of extinction, Block said. The problem is that
"we all have habits," he said. Americans want things
cheaper, easier, and they don't think about what the en-
vironment is going to be like 20 years from today, he said.
In the article, Block discusses how human desires and a
lack of foresight has led to the depletion of ther world's
natural resources and the extinction of many plants and
Blocksaid that he is not an expert - just a concerned per-
son. "I'm pulling from a wealth of information available (to

said it is important that they know

"I'm not interested in whether a

he said.
It would be more effective, however,
if the University undertook the respon-
sibility for finding replacement funds,
said Philosophy Prof. Peter Railton,
who serves on the board.
"I'VE BEEN disappointed with the
University's position on the draft law,

wanted to raise protest about it or
provide substitute aid, Railton said.

support to influence the administration.
"THE MORE people involved, the
more successful we'll be in getting the
administration to make some change,"
said board Member Susan Mc-
Clanahan, who works in the Univer-
sity's affirmative action office.
But it seems unlikely the University
will change its position since officials
have avoided making any strong criti-
cism of the law since it was first signed a
year ago.
University President Harold Shapiro
has criticized the excess paperwork the
law has brought the financial aid office,
but he hasn't spoken out on the content
of the law.
UNIVERSITY officials announced in
August that they had "no intention" of
providing replacement aid for students
whose federal aid is cut.
Although officials sutpport private
sources; such ta§ -'old's independent
fund, to subsidize students who refuse
to comply with the law, providing
University loans would be inap-
propriate, said Billy Frye, vice
president foracademic affairs and
"The University shouldn't be in the
business of attempting to thwart the
government regulation using Univer-
sity funds," Frye said.
FINANCIAL aid official Lynn Borset,
who spoke at the yesterday's meeting,
said she was concerned that if the
University provided replacement fun-
ds, it would encourage more students to
not sign forms.
Wono Lee was the only board mem-
ber who voted against the proposal.
Lee, who works in the University's
public relations department, said he
favored waiting until the Supreme
Court hears an appeal on the law before
making any formal recommendation.
The board also recommended that
the Universtiy file a friend of the court
brief when the high court hears the ap-
peal in early November.
The 11-member board is made up of
faculty, staff, and students, and meets
regularly on civil rights issues.
Although six members were absent
from the meeting, Gold said the vote
stands as the board's official position.

Alabama Supreme Court yesterday
upheld disciplinary action taken again-
st a white judge who recommended that
a black man with seven children be
"Such conduct hards back to an at-
titude which we have made substantial
progress in eliminating," the court said
in an 8-0 ruling. "It cannot be tolerated in
our courts of justice."
Former Baldwin CountyCircuit
Judge Wilson Hayes had asked the
Supreme Court overturn a decision by
the Alabama Court of the Judiciary,
which suspended him for the final six
weeks of his term, which ended last
Jan. 17.
The high court refused, saying the
punishment was proper for Hayes'
violations of judicial standards, in-
cluding impropriety, lack of decorum
and prejudicial attitude.
Hayes, 54, is no longer on the bench
because he lost a bid for re-election in
November 1982. He has since opened a
private law practice in Bay Minette.
Hayes said yesterday the ruling
resulted from an "innocuous com-
ment" that was blown out of proportion.
Before leaving the bench, Hayes
heard a divorce case involving Freddie
Lee Scott, a 42-year-old Foley resident

Detroit) said she was concerned that
the cuts would adversely affect the
University's affirmative action goals,
pointing out that the school has con-
sistently had thelargest percentage of
minority students.
Frye responded that one of the first
acts of the transition team will be a
meeting with the University's affir-
mative action staff.
In other business at yesterday's
meeting, Vice President and Chief
Financial Officer James Brinkerhoff
detailed the previously approved 1983-
1984 $863 million University general
fund budget. He said that the Univer-
sity profited significantly from the past
year's surge in stock prices. The
market value of the University's en-
dowment increased 43.7 percent last
year, bringing its total market value to
$178.6 million.
BRINKERHOFF also said that the
first 105,000 shares of University stock
invested in companies doing business
with South Africa had been sold. Last
April, the Regents voted to divest ap-
proximatley 90 percent of the Univer-
sity's investments in such companies.
"This is just the beginning,"
Brinkerhoff said, adding that the
University still holds a majority of the
stock it held before the Regents'

$90,000 earned by John Cosovich, the.
University's vice president for univer-
sity relations and development, who
previously garnered the highest salary
among University administrators.
In the past, "the president had in-
sisted that his raises be modest," said
Regent Deane Baker (R-Ann Arbor).
But "this year, we felt we could do a lit-
tle better," he added.
When Shapiro took office in January
1980, his salary was set at $79,950. It
climbed 5.5 percent the following year
to $84,437.
HIS NEXT raise on January 1983
came three months later than usual,
because the state had failed to deter-
mine how much money it would give the
University when classes began in Sep-
tember. At that time, Shapiro only took
a 3 percent hike, bringing his salary to
Regent Thomas Roach (D-Saline)

raise "as wholeheartedly as I can."
THE PROPOSAL was not listed on
the day's agenda because "a lot of
things are not matters for public com-
ment," according to Regent Robert
Nederlander (D-Detroit).
Nederlander went on to say that
Shapiro "has done an outstanding job
during difficult times. We still feel that
he's not adequately compensated."
Vice President and Chief Financial
Officer James Brinkerhoff called
Shapiro's new salary "more consistent
with the marketplace."
BUT SOME University faculty mem-
bers were less than enthusiastic about
the pay raise, in light of the announ-
cement of the School of Education cuts.
"It's doesn't make sense to me," said
Education Prof. Allen Menlo. "I don't
understand increased investment in the
University administration while we're
cutting at the level where people are
doing teaching and research."
"I just think it's appalling," said
Education Prof. Charles Lehmann.
The raise precedes the announ-
cement of pay hikes for the University's
other six executive officers. Although
the regents are responsible for setting
the president's salary, Shapiro has-the
task of deciding the wages of the vice
president's and deans
