uspect 1n
ab driver
urder
arrested
By GEORGEA KOVANIS
Ann Arbor police yesterday arrested
another man in connection with the
Sept. 13 shooting of a city cab driver,
Sgt. Jan Suomala said yesterday.
Layman Sales, 20, was arrested early
yesterday morning at his home in
Westland by Ann Arbor and Westland
police officers. He was charged with
felony murder.
ANOTHER SUSPECT in the killing,
Arnold Clark, 19, of Inkster, was
arrested Sept. 21. The charge against
him is assault with intent to rob while
being armed.
Torsten Kutsche, a 41-year-old
Yellow Cab driver, was killed and rob-
bed Sept. 13 while responding to a false
call on the 3600 block of Braeburn Circle
in Ann Arbor.
Kutsche, who lived at 320 S. Division
was shot once in the chest in an ap-
parent robbery attempt, police said. He
was pronounced dead on arrival at St.
Joseph Mercy Hospital.
After discovering that they request
was phony, Kutsche radioed his dispat-
cher at the Yellow Cab Company and
said that he "would look around for a
bit," Suomala said.
Kutsche drove to the 2700 block of
Braeburn Circle, where the murder
took place.
Kutsche was the first cab driver to be
killed in Ann Arbor since Christmas
Day, 1980.

budget whici
By the Associated Press
WASHINGTON - House and Senate negotiators agreed
Tuesday to a 1985 defense budget plan that trims billions
from President Reagan's original budget and delays further
production of the MX missile pending a chance for either
chamber to scuttle the nuclear weapon in April.
After months of deadlock, conferees on the defense
authorization bill resolved 1,200 differences between the
House and Senate versions of the measure in a final, round-
the-clock session that began early Monday.
REAGAN originally had sought $313 billion. Under a
leadership agreement that triggered the breakthrough, the
appropriations bill, which accompanies the authorization bill
will call for $292.9 billion, or less, in actual spending for fiscal
1985.
That amounts to a 5 percent "real" - or inflation-adjusted
increase for the Pentagon. Reagan, at first, said 13 per-
cent, then came down to 7.5 percent before retreating yet
again under terms of a general agreement reached last week
by House Speaker Thomas O'Neill (D-Mass.) and Senate
Majority Leader Howard Baker (R-Tenn).
House Armed Services Chairman Melvin Price (D-Ill.)
said the final product, which yet must be considered by the
House and Senate, reflects a consensus of both chambers.
That consensus, he said, is "that national security im-

delays MX.
peratives require real growth in the defense budget, but that
the size of the deficit does not permit growth to the degree
requested" by the president.
REAGAN'S biggest concession was on the MX. The com-
promise legislation will bar any further production of the 10-
warhead weapon, the centerpiece of his strategic buildup,
pending two go-ahead votes by each chamber next April.
Failure to win any of those four votes would doom the
missile, and opponents in both chambers, who demanded the
complicated parliamentary procedure, say it's all but dead
now.
Regardless of what happens in those future votes, the
legislation would limit 1985 production money for the MX to
$1.5 billion, enough for 21 missiles, according to Senate
estimates, but only 15 according to the Congressional Budget,
Office. Reagan originally wanted 40.
As for other strategic items, the compromise bill calls for
$8.2 billion next year to buy 34 B-1 supersonic bombers,.
despite questions raised by the recent crash of a prototype
model in California. Also approved: $400 million for 70 Per, R
shing 2 nuclear missiles for deployment in Europe, and more,
than $1.3 billion for hundreds of Tomahawk cruise missiles-
for air, sea and ground launchers. Some Tomahawks will-
carry nuclear warheads.

In an effort to clamp down on studen-
ts who show false identification cards to
use computers at the College of
Engineering, college officials this year
are requiring students to carry a new
photo pass, according to a safety
department supervisor.
Engineering students will have to
show monitors the new photo passes, in
order to use computers in the Chrysler
Center, the Undergraduate Library,
East Engineering and the Dow
Buildings, said Robert Patrick,
associate security supervisor for the
safety department.
FORMERLY students needed to
show only a special sticker on the back of
their regular University identification
cards.
The new picture passes will prohibit
engineering students from loaning their

identification cards to other students
who want to use the special computers,
said Mary Robertson, a senior who sits
on the college's student council.
"I've heard of people giving away
their ID cards and a lot of people doing
LSA stuff on the engineering com-
puters," Robertson said.
"THE PROBLEM was brought up in
engineering council and photo IDs
were seen as the best solution," she ad-
ded.
Use of engineering computers is
limited to students in the college
because they pay an additional $100
each term for the privilege, said
Engineering Prof. Richard Phillips.
"Other students don't pay for it, and a
non-engineer who is not supposed to be
there could be denying access to an
engineering student who has paid a fee
to use the computers," Phillips said.
SEVERAL students said the college
failed to notify them about getting a

new pass. "Something should have
been sent to me," said Kay Koskey,
who added that she heard about the
photo ID through a friend.
Jerry Borg, an engineering graduate
student, said he had borrowed another.
student's identification card once.
because he had forgot his. He said the
photo passes were unnecessary.
because most of the instances of
loaning are between engineering stud
ents.
Engineering senior Cliff Henry said
he heard of students loaning their ID
cards and thought the photo ideas
would prevent that abuse.
Students can have their picture taken
for the passes at the Chrysler com-
puting center through Friday. Next
Monday and Tuesday students can get
theri cards at West Engineering and the,
following week, Oct. 11 and 12, at
Chrysler center.

Citrus growers receive harves

"

WINTER HAVEN, Fla. (AP) -
Three citrus growers received har-
vesting permits Tuesday, one day after
a statewide ban on harvesting was im-
posed because of the threat of citrus
canker.
The bacterial disease, which destroys
fruit and eventually kills the tree, has
been found in stock from six nurseries,
and officials are trying to track down
newly planted trees that came from
these nurseries in order to prevent its
spreading through the state's $2.5
billion-a-year citrus industry.
THE CANKER is harmless to
humans who eat oranges or drink juice
contaminated by the bacteria.
The three growers who received har-
vesting go-aheads yesterday got the
permits "apparently because they had
no newly planted stock," said Wayne
Baggett, spokesman for the federal-
state eradication program.

'I'm in favor of losing one season of
business rather than take a chance and lose
the whole industry.'
- Glen Davidson, citrus merchant

t permits
This complies with a Sept. 14 federal'
quarantine, which permits the
movement of Florida citrus to all ex-
cept other citrus-producing states. This
is aimed at preventing the spread of the'
disease from Florida to other producing
areas. Since Florida is a citrus-
producing state, Conner and industry
officials decided to stop shipment
within the state, too, until survey teams
pinpoint all infested sectors of the
760,000-acre citrus belt.
For Glen Davidson, owner of a road-
side shop on U.S. Highway 27, the ship-
ping ban could be devastating, he said.
We do about 30 percent of our sales .
. over the counter to tourists," David-
son said. But he agreed that the in-
dustry should exercise extreme caution
now, rather than be sorry later.
"I'm in favor of losing one season of
business rather than take a chance and
lose the whole industry."

Florida Agriculture Commissioner
Doyle Conner on Monday imposed both
a harvesting and intra-state shipping
embargo while inspectors re-checked
groves for the disease. The ban on all
citrus shipments for sale within the
state continued without exception
yesterday, meaning that roadside stan-

ds, supermarkets and other fresh fruit
outlets were not getting any Florida-
grown citrus.
HOWEVER, the three newly recer-
tified groves, and others that are found
canker-free in the future, may ship
their fruit to packing houses for
reshipment to out-of-state markets.

Charles Manson set.
afire by fellow inmate

VACAVILLE, Calif. (AP). - Mass
killer Charles Manson was doused with
a flammable liquid and set afire
yesterday by a fellow inmate who said
Manson had threatened him because of
his religious beliefs, prison officials
said.
Manson, serving a life sentence for
seven 1969 murders including the
killing of actress Sharon Tate, was
treated for second- and third-degree
burns in the prison infirmary and was
in good condition, said Bob Gore,
spokesman for the state Corrections
Department.
MANSON, 48, was in the hobby shop
of the California Medical Facility, the
state's prison for psychiatric prisoners,
when the other inmate doused him with
flammable liquid and set him afire,
Gore said.

Prison officials believe the liquid was
paint thinner, which is available in the
hobby shop, Gore said. Many inmates
carry matches for cigarette smoking,
he added.
Correction
A witness to Monday's fatal bike ac-
cident said that the law scholar from
China was still breathing and had a
pulse when he left for the hospital and
that the truck driver could not have
seen the cyclist in time to avoid the ac-
cident. A story in yesterday's Daily in-
correctly stated that those facts were
confirmed by Ann Arbor police.
