Pierce

triumphs

in mayoral race

From staff reports
Democratic. mayoral candidate Ed-
ward Pierce last night defeated
Republican Richard Hadler by a com-
fortable 1,000 votes, giving the
Democrats a majority on the Ann Arbor
City Council for the first time in 15
years.
Pierce had 10,137 votes, while his
Republican opponent had 9,278, accor-
ding to unofficial results.
DEMOCRATS ALSO won three of the
five city council races, taking the 6-5
majority on the council out of the hands
of the GOP.
Hadler, a 62-year-old retiree, at-
tributed Pierce's victory to popularity
he gained as a state senator and local
physician. "I think it was a matter of
name recognition," Hadler said.
"Dr. Pierce is an excellent cam-
paigner," he said. "He is much more
the professional politician than I could
ever hope to be."
PIERCE SAID he is looking forward

to plunging into his new job next week
and working with the new Republican
minority. "We can't do much in the city
without bipartisan support," he said.
But he also said he is pleased with his
victory and having a Democratic
majority. "It's a hell of a lot better than

losing," he said.
Pierce said he does not plan any
major changes in the first few weeks of
his two-year term.

R HA committee proposes
monetary penalty system

By JERRY MARKON
A Residence Halls Association com-
mittee last night 'approved a proposal
requiring mandatory fines for persons
convicted of dormitory arson and other
acts of vandalism.
The . measure, which some say is
similar to penalties included in the
proposed Code of .Non-Academic Con-
duct, also calls for the establishment of
a fund to reward anyone who provides
information leading to a conviction.
"WHEN WE'RE getting into fines, it
sounds like the code, and the RHA is of-
ficially against the code, said Mark
,HegeiusQ RHA president.
Hegedus predicted that other RHA
members would share his misgivings,
and that the proposal would
be greatly altered by the RMA General
Assembly before it is submitted to the
housing division.
RHA's General Assembly will vote on
the proposed recom m endations
tomorrow night. If approved by the bo-
dy, the measure will then be sent to the
housing division for consideration.
LSA SOPHOMORE James Marchant,
who wrote the proposal, said it arose
out of agitation among South Quad
council members over a series of trash
can fires which have-recently plagued
the residence hall.

"The council was a very angered
crowed after the recent fires," Mar-
chant said. "It's members are dead-set
against people who pull fire alarms,
and smoke damage to the building
from fires."
Marchat is one of three RHA
representatives on the South Quad
council.
"I was bewildered to find that there is
no standard policy at the University for
dealing with acts of vandalism, and ar-
son," Marchant continued. He called
for an RHA committee to investigate
-the problem across campus, and volun-
teered to write a proposal for the com-
Mittee to evaluate.
THE COMMITTEE'S completed
proposal calls for the housing division
and housing security to establish man-
datory fines for various acts of van-
dalism and fire-related offenses.
The vandalism offenses covered in-
clude breaking fire alarms or glass
windows in residence halls, removing
lounge - furniture, and misusing
elevators - loading too many
passengers in them. The proposed fines
range from as low as $50 for breaking a
fire alarm, to as high as $500 for
destroying lounge furniture.t
The committee also proposes that
anyone convicted of arson or pulling

false fire alarms be subjected to a lease
review and possible lease termination.
The convicted student could be made
financially responsible for all damages.
ACCORDING TO South Quad
Building Director Mary Antieau, the
sections on vandalism directly relate to
South Quad's recent problems in these
areas.
Antieau said South Quad suffers
$1,000 damage per month for glass
breakage. It also dishes out at least $700
dollars a month for elevator repairs.
South Quad council offered a $100
reward for information about four fires
which erupted spontaneously on Feb. 4,--
It was supplemented by an offering of
up to $2000 by the state arson control
unit.
ACCORDING TO Fran Foster, a
security supervisor at housing security,
who has been keeping records of cam-
pus vandalism since the fall of 1983,
University residence halls reported 12
false fire alarms, 19 acts of arson, and.
108 acts of malicious destruction of
property last year during the winter
term.
Foster added, however, that this data
is insufficient to analyze trends and to
determine the severity of campus van-

LEXINGTON, Ky (AP)-Underdog
Villanova, shooting 79 percent from
the field, denied Patrick Ewing and
Georgetown a second straight NCAA
basketball title last night with a 66-64
victory.
Georgetown had won 17 straight
games and completed the season with
a 35-3 record and a 121-23 record
during the four-year career of 7-foot
Ewing, a four-time All-American.
Villanova, 25-10, was beaten twice by
the Hoyas during the regular Big East
season, 52-50 in overtime and 57-50,
and Georgetown entered the game a
nine-point favorite.
"NO ONE thought we could do it,
but I did," Villanova Coach Rollie
Massimino shouted afterward. And
the rotund coach and his unranked
crew from Philadelphia suburbs had
plenty of heroes to go around.
Dwayne McClain hit two free
throws and Harold Pressley one of
two to provide the margin of victory,
with Georgetown's Michael Jackson
completing the scoring with a field
goal with four seconds remaining.
McClain, hitting five of seven field
goals, paced Villanova with 17 points
and 6-foot-9 Ed Pinckney, who battled
Ewing in the pivot all night, scored 16.
The 'Aildcats, who beat Michigan in
the second round, also hit 22 of 27 free
throws and matched the Hoyas on the
boards with 17 rebounds. They limited
Ewing to 14 points.

Mideastern jet hijacked in Beirut)

From AP and UPI
* BEIRUT, Lebanon-A Middle East Airlines passenger jet
with 76 people aboard was hijacked yesterday on a flight
from Beirut and landed in Jedda, Saudi Arabia, after the
hijacker agreed to surrender, Beirut airport officials said.
Saudi authorities initially refused the jet permission to
land, but the Christian-run Voice of Lebanon radio station
said Saudi officials gave approval for a landing in Jedda-the
plane's intended destination-after the hijacker said he
would surrender.
THE RADIO REPORT said he was demanding money for
the Lebanese National Resistance movement, which has
been waging a guerrilla campaign against the Israeli oc-
cupation force in south Lebanon.
Airport officials in Beirut confirmed the hijacking and said
here were 66 passengrs and a 10 person crew aboard the
Boeing 707 jet.
One Jidda airport official said that when word of the
hijacking was received here and the plane entered Saudi air
space, the pilot was told, "Go away as it will never be allowed
to land at any Saudi Airport."
HE SAID THE plane circled the airport, with the control
tower refusing landing permission, but "Subsequently, the
pilot told the control tower that the hijacker was willing to

give himself up and end the hijacking. The Saudi authorities
at once said the plane could land."
The radio station said the hijacker was a member of the
Kesrouwani family from the Shiite Moslem village of Ankoun
in south Lebanon, which was shelled by the Israelis on March
21 during an anti-guerrilla sweep of several villages in the
area.
Airport officials said the hijacker was believed to be Ali
Kesrouwani, who is an employee of the airline, which is
Lebanon's national carrier.
THE RADIO STATION said the hijacker was demanding
400 million Saudi rials, the equivalent of about $133 million,
for release of the jet. But an airport official said he believed
the demand was 100 million Suadi rials.
'The jet had been delayed before takeoff by a bomb threat,
according to one airport source, who spoke on condition that
he not be identified. A different aircraft had been provided
after the threat, he said.
He said he believed the flight had taken off from Beirut at
about 7:20 p.m.
It landed in Jedda shortly before 11 p.m. following tense
negotiations involving the hijacker, pilot and Saudi officials.
The spokesmian said the hijacker said his taking of the

Panelists
investigate
women 's,
poverty

By SUSAN GRANT
Women must press for reform if they
want a fair wage and decent working
conditions, said Susan Guzmich, the
national organizer of 9 to 5, a clerical
union.
Guzmich, one of five panelists
speaking before an audience of about 50
yesterday at the World Feminization of
Poverty Conference held in Rackham
Auditorium, said women must band
together to push for change.
GUZMICH said she organized
clerical workers in 1973 because of low
pay and poor working conditions.
"The reality is that a full-time
clerical worker lost custody of her child
because she cannot support him. In Min-

.nesota, a woman who worked 14 years as
a secretary earns less than the boy who
bags her groceries," Guzmich said.
9 to 5 is working to help women gain
wage increases by encouraging women
to become leaders and fighting public
opinion, Guzmich said.
"AT YALE University, we arranged
a salary scale with 17 steps which
allowed employees to rise more
rapidly. We also improved their pen-
sion plan," Guzmich said.
Women can improve themselves by
working at home, said Coralee Kern,
director of the National Association for
the Cottage Industry. Cottage Industry
is a catchword used to describe the

Squirt guns dampen parade.
T RAINED on the parade held here this weekend, and
organizers were delighted. After all, they were stepping
off for the Second Annual Oregon Rain Festival. Lack of
rain is not usually a problem at this time of year in the
soggy Pacific Northwest, but it was dry for last year's
festivities, and organizer Gerald Grisham was not taking
any chances this time. He arranged for the Portland Rain-
makers to roll into town Saturday. The comics and clowns

going on high carbohydrate diets, and playing a 52-hour
practice marathon, said Bev Buffinton, Liberty Baptist
student activities director. And "we had to keep close
records of everything," Buffinton said after the 75-hour
mark in the Guinness Book of World Records was eclipsed
Saturday afternoon. It was the school's second attempt at
breaking the old mark; last year's effort fell short. Coaches
said they learned from their mistakes and spent nine mon-

"Some people were trapped for half an hour or more," said
head gardner Dennis Hopkins. "They started to panic and
damaged the hedges when they scrambled through them
to get out." The maze with carefully cultivated yew hedges
was designed by the present duke and planted in 1962.
