City reopens homeless shelter
-BBy TRACEY MILLER
The Ann Arbor City Council yesterday voted
unanimously to give St. Andrew's Episcopal Church
$4,350 to reopen its shelter for the homeless on an in-
After closing its shelter on Aug. 31 due to a lack of
funds and volunteer personnel, St. Andrew's will
reopen on Nov: 1 for 45 days until the city's proposed
emergency shelter is ready.
THE MONEY for St. Andrew's is part of $25,000
city council voted two weeks ago to provide for
emergency housing for the city's indigent com-
Members of Mayor Louis Betcher's Commission on
Emergency housing last month agreed on a per-
manent location for a shelter but plans for leasing the
site have not been finalized. Commission members
would not release the actual location, but they said it
was close to downtown.
St. Andrew's original shelter, "The House Across
the Street," opened last January, but was forced to
shut down in April because of zoning violations.
"We weren't able to house any more than six in-
dividuals after April in the shelter so we decided to
use the voucher system," said Barbara Mitzel, coor-
dinator-volunteer at the church this summer.
Under this system, the church provided the
homeless with vouchers they could use to stay at the
Embassy Hotel downtown.
When the church ran out of money, the homeless
were moved to St. Andrew's basement.
ran out of money and personnel to run
it," Mitzel said.
This year the church found it could no longer ask its
membership to support the shelter, according to
David Crary, chairman of St. Andrew's Church and
"Last year the church raised almost all the money
to fund the project, but we can't ask members to
donate more money this year. It's just too much
pressure," he said.
CRARY SAID the church is seeking volunteers to
help run the shelter. "We are looking for people who

school," said attorney Ivan Barris who
is representing Ike Kosminski, 60, his
wife, Margarethe, 54, and their son
IN A PHONE interview last night, he
called the charges "a bunch of pop-
pycock" and said "the government just
went haywire on this one."
The Kosminskis were arrested Wed-,
nesday outside the Washtenaw County
Courthouse in downtown Ann Arbor.
In an affidavit, presented in U.S.
District Court in Detroit Wednesday, an
FBI agent said the two retarded men,
Robert Fulmer, 57, and Louis Molitoris,
59, lived in a trailer on the Kosminskis
farm with no running water or heat.
IINVESTIGATORS found the men
"residing in a trailer on the farm which
contained no running water or heat, no
toilet facilities and eating moldy bread
and maggot-ridden poultry."
The affidavit said the men received
no wages except a $10 bonus at Christ-
mas and Easter and worked from 3
a.m. to8 p.m. each day on the farm.
Both men said they had attempted to
leave but were returned to the farm by
one of the Kosminskis and told they
would be picked up by the police if they

the farm on Aug. 19 and have been

Kosminski and his wife were charged
with involuntary servitude. U.S.
Magistrate Thomas Carlson ordered
them released on $50,000 personal bond.
If convicted, they face up to five years'
imprisonment and a $5,000 fine.
Barris said Justice Department fears
that the Kosminskis might try to flee
were unfounded. "The government
thought erroneously that these people
were going to leve. They didn't have
tickets or anything. They weren't going
anywhere," he said.

Man convicted in Tylenol case
CHICAGO - James Lewis was convicted last night of trying to extort $1
million form Johnson & Johnson last year during a nationwide panic sparked
by seven deaths from cyanide-laced Tylenol.
A federal grand jury deliberated less than three hours before returning the
verdict. Lewis, 37, grimaced when the verdict was read. His wife, LeAnn, sat
The convicton followed five days of testimony in the trial before U.S.
District Judge Frank McGarr.
Johnson & Johnson, the parent company of the firm that manufactures
Tylenol, received a letter from Lewis seeking money from the makers of
Tylenol to stop the killings, following the death of seven Chicago area
residents in 1982 who took cyanide-laced Tylenol capsules.
Lewis, who is being held at the Metropolitan Correctional Center, was sen-
tenced in July to 10 years in prison for mail fraud in a separate case.
U.S. Marines ignored warning
of terrorist bomb attack
BEIRUT, Lebanon -Marines were warned two days before the bombing in
Beirut that a new extremist group had targeted their base and that a car
bomb attack was imminent, the commander in Beirut said yesterday.
Other Marine officers said a sentry inside the barbed wire perimeter of the
base the first line of defense, was not carrying a loade gun when the truck
filled with a ton of TNT flowed through his forward post Sunday.
The comments and a detailed map by Marine intelligence officers provided
new clues to how the attack occurred with such deadly precision and likely
will raise new questions on whether sufficient security measures were in
U.S. officials in Washington have said they had circumstantial evidence
that a breakaway, Iranian-backed Shiite group was responsible.
House passes bill to curb illegal
drug traffic and abortion funds
WASHINGTON - The House passed and sent to the Senate by voice vote
yesterday an $11.9 billion appropriations bill with provisions to "stem the
tide" of illegal drugs from abroad and restrict abortion coverage for federal
employee health plans serving nine million Americans.
The legislation would cost $299.7 million more than the Reagan ad-
ministration requested to pay the fiscal 1984 bills for the president's office,
the Treasury Department, the Postal Service, the Customs Service and
The legislation was defeated 259-149 on June 8, after the House adopted an
amendment to ban federal employee health plans from financing abortions
except when the mother's lite is endangered.
The bill was defeated the first time because House liberals objecting to the
abortion provisions were joined by fiscally conservative Republicans who
disliked the overall cost.
The measure still includes the controversial abortion language adopted
226-182 on June 8, a provision similar to the anti-abortion restriction in the
Medicaid program for low-income Americans.
Ford Motor sets record profits
DETROIT - Ford Motor Co. said yesterday it made a record $333 million
profit in the third quarter, making the nation's Big Four automakers com-
bined profit $1.16 billion for the p.eriod.
Ford was the last of the top automakers to announce its earnings for the
quarter. The four top companies made a combined $1.16 billion, compared to
a $217.8 million loss last year.
The Ford profit is a huge improvement from a $325 million loss in the third
quarter last year. The $333 million profit translates to earnings of $1.83 per
share taking into account a recent three-for-two stock split. Last year's loss
translated to $1.81 per share.
The $333 million profit surpasses the previous record of $304 million, set in
"We must recognize, however, that while these results are satisfying in
the short run, long-run success requires continuing progress," said Ford
President Donald Petersen.
General Motors Corp. posted a record $737 million third-quarter profit
compared to a $129 million profit last year. Chrysler Corp. also had a third
quarter record profit of $100.2 million profit, 10 times better than a $9.1
million profit in the third quarter last year.
American Motor Corp. posted the only loss of the nation's automakers,
reporting red ink of $9.1 million for the quarter compared to a $30.9 million
loss last year. Volkswagen does not report separate earnings for its
Volkswagen of American subsidiary.
Senate for auto import extension
WASHINGTON - Fourteen senators from industrial states introduced a
resolution yesterday, calling on the administration to keep the limits on
Japanese auto imports at the current 1.68 million a year.
The resolution was filed on the eve of the arrival in Tokyo of Trade
Representative William Brock. He is expected to discuss the import issue
during his visit.
Now in their third year, the "voluntary" restraints expire in March.
The Reagan administration is seeking a one-year extension of the limits at
a 1.8 million level.
"The American automobile still accounts for over one out of every five
manufactuing jobs in the country," Sen. Donald Riegle (D-Mich.) said.
"As long as this key basic industry is vulnerable, industrial unemployment
will continue to stay above 9 percent - as it was for the past 19 months - and
sustained'economic recovery will be impossible."
