Cult classic moves to
By AMY D. GOLDSTEIN
After six years and hundreds of
showings, the cult film classic Harold
and Maude has moved from the State
Theatre to a new home-the movies at
The State Theatre, which has recen-
tly come under new management,
decided to discontinue all their mid-
night movies according to Bill Sturland,
a manager of the Movies at Briarwood.
State Theatre management refused to
comment on the decision.
FOR MANY fans, Harold and Maude
was a weekend tradition, some people
have seen the film dozens of times.
Though still in Ann Arbor, moving the
movie to Briarwood will undoubedly
hinder visits by a large number of the
film's campus audience who lack a
convenient mode of transportation.

Still, Briarwood management is con-
fident that the film will survive being
uprooted and continue to attract late-
runstad night moviegoers.
"As more people hear about it, they'll

Movies at Briarwood, Bryan Carson.

"It's a real bummer," said second
year law student Eric Brunstad. "If we

Another fan who was disappointed
with the move was Bill Shipley.
"IT'S TOO bad, I think it should still
be there because Ann Arbor is a 'mini-
New York', and (Harold and Maude)
helped keep Ann Arbor a little livlier
past 2 a.m.," Shipley said, "it's another
Ann Arbor institution. I've seen it (at
the State). It's a cult movie."

AND THEN, of course there were the
lucky ones. Warren Hamil and Campus

ting no calls. Steven Ceccio, a junior
engineering student, said the weather
didn't bother him. "As a matter of fact,
I've got the window open."
In weather as low as 10 degrees below
zero, all occupied rooms in a dwelling,
including bathrooms, are required by
the city housing code to be at a tem-
perature of at least 70 degrees at a
distance of three feet above the floor
level, according to Ray Eyer, a city
"We encourage people to contact the
landlord first," said Eyer. The city
housing division will send someone out
if the landlord and tenant can't resolve
the problem, added Eyer.
THE WIND also makes a lot of dif-
ference, said Eyer. It blows heat away
from the house.
Dr. Ron Oehler said St. Jospeh Mercy
Hospital has received about 10 cases of
minor frost bite within the past three
days. "Most our patients have
received mild frost bite on the finger
tips, nose, and ears," Oehler said.

Israeli pullback sparks violence
BEIRUT, Lebanon - As Israel troops dismantled and trucked equip-
ment south to prepare a pullback of their front lines in Lebanon, the
Lebanese Cabinet met in emergency session yesterday to discuss ways to
prevent an outbreak of civil warfare in areas Israel evacuates.
In the capital, an outbreak of fighting overnight by Druse and Sunni and
Shiite Moslems in West Beirut killed two people and wounded seven. The
Spiritual leader of Lebanon's Sunni Moslems, Grand Mufti Sheik Hassan
Khaled, met with representataives of all three groups to try to prevent
Police said mountain fighting east of Beirut between the Lebanese army
and Druse militiamen overnight killed five civilians, including an 11-month-
old boy. His father was one of eight people wounded.
Israeli convoys made their way along winding roads in south Lebanon,
moving hardware in anticipation of the withdrawal from the Awali River
south to the Litani River, a distance of about 18 miles.
Evacuating the strip of south Lebanon in which 250,000 to 400,000 Lebanese
live would be the first step in the three-stage pullout of Israeli soldiers, ap-
proved by the Israeli Cabinet last week.
Court overturns death sentence,
requires un-biased jurors
WASHINGTON - The Supreme Court yesterday, voting 7-2, made it har-
der for those unsure about sending people to their death to serve as jurors at
capital punishment trials.
Florida officials had asked the Supreme Court for guidance on excusing
jurors opposed to the death penalty in a case involving Johnny Paul Witt, 40,
who was convicted and sentenced to death in Volusia County, Fla., for a Oct.
Jonathan Kushner was abducted while riding his bicycle along a trial near
a wooded area in tampa, and placed in the trunk of a car where he died of
A federal appeals court overturned Witt's death sentence because a poten-
tial juror was excused after voicing anti-death penalty views.
Nevada plane crash kills 74
RENO, Nev. - A chartered turboprop carrying about 74 people home from
a gambling junket crashed and burned just after takeoff yesterday as the
pilot tried to return to the airport because of vibrations. Authorities said all
but three people on the plane were killed.
Galaxy Airlines Flight 203, which had taken off at 1:05 a.m. PST bound for
Minneapolis, crashed in a field and slid onto a four-lane highway after
narrowly missing motels and apartment buildings.
Four people on the ground suffered minor injuries, said Washoe County
Sheriff Vince Swinney. The cause of their injuries was not immediately
"It was really shocking. The plane never seemed to get off the ground,"
said Mark Brenner of Reno, who was driving by the scene when the plane
Accused Belushi murderer
abandons extradition fight
TORONTO - Cathy Evelyn Smith, the Toronto woman accused of mur-
dering comedian John Belushi with injections of cocaine and heroin, turned
herself in to police yesterday and gae up her 22-month fight against ex-
tradition to California.
Her attorney, Brian Greenspan, told a news conference that Miss Smith
formally abandoned her extradition appeal because "discussions and
negotiations" with the Los Angeles County district attorney's office
"provided an acceptable basis for Miss Smith's voluntary departure."
Greenspan refused to say whether the bargaining led to an agreement on-
reduced charges or on a sentence to be served.
"It just wouldn't be proper, it would be inappropriate to comment fur-
ther," he told reporters.
Belushi, star of NBC-TV's "Saturday Night Live" and such films as
"Animal House," was found dead of "acute cocaine and heroin intoxicaton"
on March 5, 1982, in a Los Angeles bungalow hotel at the age of 33.
Spy satellite countdown begins
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. - The countdown began yesterday for the first
top secret U.S. man-in-space mission, with the exact launch time kept under
wraps to hamper Soviet efforts to monitor a spy satellite that will be
deployed from the shuttle Discovery.
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration and the Pentagon will
say only that Discovery and its crew of five military officers will take off
between 1:15 p.m. and 4:15 p.m. EST Wednesday.
After its release, the Air Force satellite, called SigInt for signal intelligen-
ce, is to be boosted into a stationary orbit 22,300 miles above the equator
south of the Soviet Union. To reach that outpost, the satellite has to be drop-
ped off precisely over the equator.
The Pentagon especially does not want Soviet photo-reconnaissance or
communications-interceptor satellites to monitor the U.S. intelligence-
gathering satellite after it is released from the shuttle's cargo bay.
Although the Defense Department tried to keep the identify of the U.S.
satellite a secret, sources reported it is an advanced spy satellite capable of
monitoring Soviet missile tests and radio, radio-telephone, microwave and
satellite communications over a wide area, including most of Europe, Asia
