Forget General " Hospital. The best
soap opera in town is playing in the Law
It's the James Picozzi arson trial, and
it resumes March 18 at 9:30 a.m. after a
THE TRIAL, an administrative
hearing ordered by U.S. District Court
Judge John Feikens, will determine
whether Picozzi, a former University
law student, set fire to his law quad
dorm room in March, 1983.
The trial was originally scheduled to
end the Friday before spring break, but
lawyers for Picozzi and the University,
were unable to present all of their
Court reporter Roger Thome said the
rest of the trial will take two or three
days, with both sides presenting their
final witnesses in the case.

division, will testify for the University,

Peter Davis, the University's attor-
ney, contended that Monroe's
testimony will prove that no one but
Picozzi could have set the fire.
Picozzi contends that one of his
classroom enemies threw gasoline in
his room and lit it as he slept. The blaze
forced Picozzi out to his window ledge,
where he fell from the third floor,
breaking his back.
BUT THE University says that
Picozzi, bitter because of social
problems, set the fire to gain attention,
and it literally blew up in his face.
One of Picozzi's attorneys, Mark
Gombiner, said the arson expert for
Picozzi will testify that someone
could have opened Picozzi's door, which
was unlocked, and set the fire.
Both attorneys said they were op-
timistic. Davis said the testimony of an
Ann Arbor police lieutenant last Friday
gave the University an edge.
"(John) Atkinson was an outstanding
witness," he said. "He testified very
clearly why the police department
thought Picozzi set the fire."
Gombiner acknowledged that Atkin-
son backed the University, but he said
Atkinson's conclusions were based on a
Gombiner said all the University's
main points are either false or in-
significant. "I really don't think they
have introduced anything of any
probative value," he said.

12 die in Lebanon bomb blast
MAARAKE, Lebanon-A bomb explosion yesterday shattered the upper
floor of a mosque in this stronghold of Shiite Moslem resistance to Israeli oc-
cupation, and the United Nations said 12 people were killed and 25 wounded
in the blast. Lebanese police said there were 15 dead and 30 wounded.
The explosive charge was on the roof over the offices of the Shiite Amal
militia, south Lebanese security forces said. The blast collapsed the two-
story stone mosque's upper floor.
Among the dead were two guerrilla leaders and an infant, apparently
crushed by falling concrete.
The explosion came a day after Israeli forces ended a 24-hour siege of
Maarake in one of the raids they have conducted in the past two weeks to
curb guerrilla attacks on Israeli forces withdrawing from southern Lebanon.
Lebanon's state radio accused Israel. of setting off the explosion, and
residents of Maarake blamed Israel.
But the Israeli military spokesman's office in Tel Aviv said it "strongly
denies" any involvement in the town, about seven miles east of the port city
EPA orders reduction in gas
lead content, considers ban
WASHINGTON-The administration yesterday ordered a 90 percent
reduction in gasoline lead content by next year and said it is consdering a
ban on leaded gasoline as early as 1988.
The action is needed because "lead in the environment is still a major
public health problem," said Lee Thomas, administrator of the Environ-
mental Protection Agency.
Elevated levels of lead in the blood are blamed for a variety of ailments,
including behavior disorders, anemia, mental retardation and permanent
The EPA's new rules call for the first reduction in gasoline lead content on
July 1, when no more than 0.5 grams of lead will be permitted in each gallon
of gasoline. Current standards allow 1.1 grams per gallon.
Under the regulations, lead content must be reduced further to 0.1 grams
per gallon by Jan. 1, 1986.
Fire kills seven in Muskegon
MUSKEGON-Investigators yesterday searched for clues to help them
determine the cause of a fire that killed seven people and injured six others
at a foster care home for the handicapped during a blinding snowstorm.
One of the victims was a 4-year-old girl. The other six were adults, most of
The fire that raced through the one-story Lakeview Inn late Sunday night
was fueled by wind gusts of up to 50 MPH.
Fire fighters were hampered by a 10-inch snowfall.
A Muskegon County Sheriff's Department spokesman said "the entire
living area was engulfed in flames" when fire fighters arrived at 11:30 p.m.
at the home in Egelston Township, about 10 miles east of Muskegon in
Court qualifies Miranda ruling
WASHINGTON-In a major victory for law enforcement officials, the
Supreme Court said yesterday prosecutors sometimes may use as evidence
the confessions of criminal suspects not initially told of their rights.
By a 6-3 vote, the court said confessions given to police by criminal suspec-
ts who receive the police warnings required by the court's 1966 Miranda
ruling may be used as trial evidence even when earlier confessions by the
same suspects were obtained without the required warnings.
The court's two most liberal members said the ruling dealt "a potentially
crippling blow" to the Miranda decision, adding that yesterday's ruling
"threatens disastrous consequences.
The landmark 1966 decision requires police to warn all criminal suspects
in custoday that what they say may be used against them and that they have
a right to remain silent or have a lawyer present during police questioning.
But writing for the court yesterday, Justice Sandra Day O'Connor said, "A
suspect who has once responded to unwarned yet uncoercive questioning is
not thereby disabled from waiving his rights and confessing after he has
been given the requisite Miranda warnings."
Moscow warns Germany against
aiding U.S. Star Wars program
MOSCOW-The Soviet Union yesterday warned West Germany against
taking part in President Reagan's program to build space weapons, saying
the "Star Wars" plan could torpedo the upcoming superpower arms talks.
Foreign Minister Andrei Gromyko, in 4/ hours of talks with his West
German counterpart, Hans-Dietrich Genscher, said the Kremlin would view
the Bonn government as "an accomplice" in violating the 1972 anti-ballistic
missile treaty if it helped develop the Star Wars weapons, the Soviet news
agency Tass reported.
After the meetings, Genscher told a Moscow news conference the U.S.-
Soviet talks scheduled to begin March 12 in Geneva, Switzerland, "could
open a new chapter in East-West relations."
But the West German minister held out little hope that new arms control
agreements would be achieved swiftly.
In recent weeks, Kremlin officials have mounted a campaign against the
U.S. program, visiting Western capitals and repeatedly denouncing the
Reagan plan in Soviet media.
U.S. Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger said last month Washington
would welcome West Germany's help in developing the advanced missile
