AUTOMATIC WEAPONS CONFISCATED
Survivalist, neo-Nazis arrested
THREE BROTHERS, Ark. (AP) -
The leader of a survivalist group and
four members of a neo-Nazi sect
surrendered without a struggle yester-
day, ending a three-day standoff with
heavily armed and camouflaged
authorities who hadasurrounded a camp
in the Ozarks.
James Ellison, 44, leader of the
Covenant, the Sword and the Arm of the
Lord, and four members of The Order,
a white supremacist group, were taken
to the Baxter County Jail, Tom Hill, a
spokesman for the Bureau of Alcohol,
Tobacco and Firearms, said in

verged on the camp Friday afternoon
with a warrant for Ellison and began
negotiating for his surrender. The
warrant charged Ellison with directing

ATF AGENT Jack Killoran displayed a
.380-caliber machine gune he identified
as a MAC11-Al, an automatic weapon
capable of a firing rate of 1,000rounds a
minute that was found in the search
Sunday. He said it was nearly identical
to one used to shoot a Missouri state
trooper last week. The only difference,
he said, was that the barrel of the one
found at the camp was threaded for a

Supreme Court will decide Ow:
racial qualifications for jurorS
WASHINGTON - The Supreme Court said yesterday it will decide
whether prosecutors may disqualify any potential juror from a criminal :
trial because of the juror's race.
The justices will use a case from the Louisville. Kv.. area to decide:
whether defendents are denied fair trials which prosecutors use such tactics
The decision, expected sometime next year, could curtail the broad'
power prosecutors traditionally have possessed to strike prospective jurors .
from trials by using so-called "peremptory challenges."
The case challenges racially motivated juror exclusions made byg
prosecutors only, but the court's eventual decision conceivably could discuss'
as well such exclusions made by defense lawyers.
The case centers on the use of peremptory challenges, generally given to
both the defense and prosescution lawyers in criminal cases. They are per->
mitted to exclude a limited number of individuals from the jury without.

weapons at the white supremacist
group's 224-acre encampment.
At a news conference after the 10:30
a.m. arrests, FBI agent Ray
McElhaney said the operation was a
success because lawmen were able to
avoid violent confrontation. Authorities
had moved cautiously in their search
out of fear the group might have plan-
ted landmines, but McElhaney said
they found no booby traps.
Earlier yesterday, federal
authorities said items found in a search
of a cluster of buildings away from the
main compound of the encampment,

"Many patients like to talk when they

One such patient is 76-year-old
Harold Polasky, who has been in the

of skin grafts on his leg. While confined

Polasky says he has been cheered up by
six different student volunteers. He
says he keeps his eyes on the hallway,
watching for the volunteer to pass by.
"EVERYTIME I see her, I call her
and she comes over and talks to me,"
Polasky says, rattling on about his
surgery to a reporter and to other
visitors who drop in. Volunteers, he ad-
ds, "make me feel like I'm at home."
But the work volunteers do isn't
always quite so pleasant, as cheering
up patients like Polasky.
William Spangler, coordinator for
patient relations at the Main Hospital,
says he occasionally has to counsel
volunteers who are troubled by some of
the disturbing realities of hospital work
such as cancer patients whose hair has
fallen out or victims of car accidents
who are brought in with mangled limbs.
"MOST OF (the volunteers) don't
have previous experience in a hospital
and it can be very unsettling to see
some of the things that happen in a
hospital. It can be quite an awakening,"
But Griffin adds that it is rare that a
volunteer leaves in the middle of the
program because of upsetting ex-
periences or for any other reason.
LSA senior Lori Lewis says she
probably learned the most from the
crises she has had to deal with while
working at Mott. During her tenure in
the infant ward she witnessed the
deaths of four or five children to whom
she had grown attached. She says the
deaths disturbed her a great deal as did
seeing the parents' pain.
"It's heart-breaking to see parents
torn apart when anchild's cancer goes
out of remission and is active again,"
But looking back on those traumas,
she says she learned how to handle
situations physicians are forced to face
every day-lessons that cannot be
taught in the classroom.
"I've learned more in my two years
working at Mott than I did my whole
time in school," she says, "It's really

BRASILIA, Brazil -Jose Sarney became president yesterday and said he
would carry out the plans of Tancredo Neves, the veteran politician who died
before he could take office as Brazil's first civilian president in 21 years.
Neves died in a Sao Paulo hospital Sunday at age 75 after a series of
operations that began hours before he was to be sworn in March 15. His body
was brought to the capital yesterday, carried through thousands of mour-
ners who chanted his name as the coffin passed.
Congress met in special session earlier yesterday and declared the
presidency vacant, allowing Vice President Sarney, 54, to become chief of
state of Latin America's largest nation.
Neves was a master of Brazilian politics and held offices ranging from city
councilman to prime minister in a half-century career. The new civilian
government that he was to have led ended a generation of military rule that
began with a coup in 1964.
Sarney spoke on radio and television early yesterday and promised to fight
inflation, hunger, violence, and unemployment - all pressing problems in
Brazil, whose foreign debt of more than $100 billion is the highest in the
Israeli navy sinks PLO ship
TEL AVIV, Israel - An Israeli missile boat sank a shipload of Palestinian
conmandos in a battle on the high seas, killing the captain and 20 guerrillas
on a terrorist mission to wreck Israeli Independence Day, officials said
Eight guerrillas who survived the battle Saturday night were captured,
the Israeli military said.
Adm. Abraham Ben-Shoshan, the Israeli Navy commander, said an of-
ficial announcement of the encounter about 100 miles off the coast of Israel
had been delayed because the captives were being questioned Sunday.
"This mission was to come, to hit the shore of Israel and to kill as many,
people as they could," Ben-Shoshan told a news conference in Tel Aviv.
The navy chief said the commandos were members of Fatah, the most
prominent of the eight groups that make up the Palestine Liberation
Organization led by guerrilla chief Yasser Arafat.

Though there have been few protests
at the University of Michigan since the
divestment in 1982, Prof. Leonard
Suransky, the director of the Project
Outreach Program, said the concern
over apartheid has not faded.
THE DEMONSTRATIONS were the
"most visible and sometimes inap-
propriate type of demonstrations,"
He said the sale of bracelets
engraved with the names of South
African political prisoners is doing
more for solidarity than anything else
in the past few years.
"I DON'T think there's anyone in-
volved in the protest who doesn't want
the total divestment of South African
related stocks by the University," said
Suransky who was coordinator of the
University's committee on Southern
Africa in 1983, "but the issue of total
divestment is in the courts now."
Kraus said so far seven speakers
have signed up: Ann Arbor Mayor Ed
Pierce, councilman Larry Hunter (D-
First Ward), University professors
Suransky and Bunyan Bryant, State-
Representative Perry Bullard (D-Ann
Arbor), MSA President Paul
Josephson, and graduate student Bar-
bara Ransby. Ransby, currently
studying at the University, was a leader
in the Columbia movement as an un-
dergraduate last year.
MSA is expected to vote tonight on
whether to support and fund the
protest, Kraus said.
SIDON, Lebanon - Rebel Christian gunmen yesterday declared a
unilateral cease-fire to halt a bloody monthlong artillery battle with Moslem
militiamen, but police said a baby was killed and 33 civilians were wounded
before the fighting died down.
Christian rebel chief Samir Geagea, in a news conference in Beirut, an-
nounced that his men would stop firing on the southern port of Sidon from
their positions in hillside villages to the east of the city.
He also said his troops would begin withdrawing today from Sidon, 24
miles south of Beirut.
"We will meticulously abide by the cease-fire to give peace a chance,"
Geagea told reporters. "We will also withdraw those of our forces which had
been sent to the region as reinforcements, but the local armed villagers will
stay and defend their lands and homes."
Junta trial begins in Argentina
BUENOS AIRES, Argentina - Nine of Argentina's former military rulers
went on trial yesterday charged with kidnapping, torturing, and killing
thousands of people during the "dirty war" against leftists in the 1970s.
Hundreds of federal police surrounded the court building.
The day before the trial began, elected President Raul Alfonsin
plotters had urged the army to overthrow his civilian government. Alfonsin
was elected in 1983, ending nearly eight years of military rule.
Police blocked off streets around the Federal Criminal Court of Appeals
and officers with automatic weapons patrolled the area. A police com-
munique said the security measures would be maintained around the clock
until the end of the trial, which is expected to take at least three months.
Human rights groups and leftist political parties said they expected 50,000
people to attend a march and rally they planned outside the Congress
building a few blocks from the court in downtown Buenos Aires.
