CIA protesters to be arraigned today


The 26 demonstratrors arrested last
week in protests against the Central
Intelligence Agency will be arraigned
today on charges ranging from
trespassing to hindering and opposing
a police officer.
Originally, each protester was to be
formally charged at a separate time
'before the 15th District Court in Ann
Arbor. The first arraignment was
scheduled for tomorrow, with others
later this week or at the beginning of
next week.
JUDGE George Alexander,
however, agreed to handle all of the

arraignments today after lawyers
from the American Civil Liberties
Union, who are representing the
protesters, complained about the
The lawyers argued that the court's
failure to arraign the demonstrators
on the days of their arrests - last
Tuesday and Wednesday - con-
stituted a violation of a state statute
guaranteeing arrested individuals the
right to an arraignment "without un-
necessary delay."
Nancy Francis, one of the ACLU
lawyers, said individuals usually are
arraigned on the day of the arrest if

the arrest is made during business
hours and if an arraignment judge is
on duty.
Richard Le Grande, the detective
assigned to the case, said the
arraignments were handled accor-
ding to standard procedure.
The protesters spent Thursday af-
ternoon and much of Friday at City
Hall, hoping to be arraigned. But the
arraignment judge on duty, Pieter
Thomassen, became ill Friday, so the
group was told to return today.
Echoing the feeling of several
protesters, graduate student Dean

Baker said he wanted a quick
arraignment simply to get it over
In the arraignment today, 11
protesters will be formally charged
with trespassing; 12 with hindering
and opposing a police officer; and 3
with disorderly conduct. All , are
expected to plead not guilty.

LSA considers credits for ROTC

do that they have to take 12 extra hours. If they're in LSA,
that's over and above the 120 they need to graduate. They
have to overload."
Jules Valley, an LSA junior in Army ROTC, said the
7cadets should get credit for "the amount of time we spend
it ROTC, which is several hours a week."
"THE FACT that the engineering school recognizes
those credits and LSA doesn't is not very fair," he said.
v"(ROTC) is very time consuming and I don't get any
credit for it."
During the 1970 debate which led to the policy against
giving credit for ROTC courses, faculty members argued
that the classes incorporate material that is "wholly non-
tntellectual in character" and complained that "the con-
ext of the courses are determined outside of the Univer-

sity." Attempts to reverse the 1970 decision failed in 1975
and 1979.
"I think (all ROTC courses) ought to be evaluated for
credit. If the University doesn't feel they are credit wor-
thy, they should tell us what to do to make them credit
worthy," said Gerlach. "Don't just tell me because it's
ROTC that it's not a good course."
Philosophy Prof. Carl Cohen, an outspoken critic of
ROTC credit at the 1970 LSA faculty meeting, said last
night that he "opposed automatic credit for the courses . .
. In those days it was clear to me that many of the courses
offered by ROTC were not worthy of academic credit."
But Cohen is not opposed to a review of the decision.
"One cannot say absolutely that credit should or should
not be given. The matter should be put before the
academic departments," Cohen said.

Local group
to propose
gun ban
(Continued from Page1)
vocacy Clinic in the law school.
Duquette's group believes that a
ban on handguns would lead to a drop
in the number of violent crimes and
handgun accidents occuring in the city.
IN 1983, a year after a similar ban
was implemented in Chicago, the
number of handgun murders fell by
one-third, according to Duquette.
He also pointed to statistics that
show a loaded gun in six times more
likely to cause an accidental death
than to kill a robber or burglar.
Other figures he cited show that
one-fourth of about 3,000 accidental
handgun-related deaths every year
are of children under the age of 14.
Citizens for Handgun Control hope
that other cities across the United
States will adopt handgun bans
similar to the one it has proposed. If
the ban became nationwide, Duquette
expects that fewer criminals will
carry handguns.
FOREIGN countries with tough gun
control laws, witness fewer handgun
murders, Duquette said. In 1980, for
instance, more than 11,500 handgun
murders were committed in the
United States while just eight were
committed in England and only 18 in
Sweden, he said.
An informal survey of 950 Ann Ar-
borites last May by area resident
Phillis Engelbert found that the
majority - 653 - favored a handgun
ban in the city.
But the proposal of similar bans
before City Council in the past has
been "vehemently opposed" by
residents, according to Councilmem-
ber Gerald Jernigan (R-Fourth
Both Jernigan and Councilmember
Larry Hahn (R-Fourth Ward) said
they didn't feel a handgun ban was
necessary. "I don't think there's a
problem that's severe enough that it
would require an ordinance," Hahn
But Councilmember Doris Preston
(D-Fifth Ward) said she was "very
supportive of the concept," although
she added that she had seen only a
draft of the proposed ordinance.
Preston believed that the proposal
eventually would win the six votes
among 11 council members it needs to
become law.

Monet, Renoir works stolen
PARIS - At least five men brandishing revolvers invaded a museum
yesterday, forced guards and visitors to lie on the floor and in five
minutes stripped the walls of nine paintings, including a priceless Monet
that inspired the name for the impressionist movement.
Curator Yves Brayer of the Marmottan museum called it "the theft of
the century."
Four other impressionist paintings by Claude Monet and two by Pierre
August Renoir were among the stolen works that Brayer valued at a total
of 100 million francs, about $12.5 million.
He said Monet's "Impression Soleil Levant," or "Impression Sunrise,"
"has not price" because of its historic value.
The men entered the museum during visiting hours shortly after 10
a.m., forced guards and visitors to the floor, pulled the nine paintings
from walls in several rooms of the museum and fled, said Brayer in a
telephone interview with The Associated Press.
"It's a formidable loss," said a shaken Brayer, who is also a painter.
"(It's) as if someone had stolen the "Mona Lisa .... It's the theft of the
World bankers discuss loan
WASHINGTON - Bankers from around the world meet here today to
discuss Treasury Secretary James A. Baker's plea that they lend $20
billion to 15 heavily indebted nations the banks consider poor risks.
Representatives from about 60 banks are expected from Britain, West
Germany, Japan, Canada and other countries as well as the United States
for discussions of Baker's proposal for easing the international debt
. The bankers will meet at a Washington hotel under the auspices of the
Institute for International Finance, an organization formed by banks to
gather and exchange information about countries that borrow from them.
Ten of the indebted countries on Baker's list are in Latin America. They
are: Argentina, Mexico, Brazil, Venezuela, Uruguay, Chile, Ecuador,
Colombia, Peru and Bolivia. Five are scattered over the rest of the
world: Yugoslavia, the Philippines, Nigeria, the Ivory Coast and Moroc-
Although many have caught up on their payments by severe belt-
tightening in the last two years, the banks are lending them little if any
new money. Mexico alone, for example, says it needs about $4 billion.
Israelis raid Palestinian bases
BEIRUT, Lebanon - Israeli warplanes bombed two Palestinian
guerrilla bases in the Syrian-controlled Bekaa Valley yesterday and
Palestinian sources said some guerrillas were wounded.
Syrian military sources in Damascus said four F-14 and F-15 jet
fighters staged the attack at 3:50 p.m. (8:50 a.m. EDT).
"Our air defenses confronted them and forced them to flee south," said
a Syrian official who spoke on condition of anonymity.
It was the 13th Israeli air raid in Lebanon this year.
The Palestinian sources in Damascus said "some" Palestinians
guerrillas were wounded and several buildings of the Popular Front for
the Liberation of Palestine-General Command were damaged.
The Israeli military command in Tel Aviv said the air raids five miles
west of the Syrian border scored "accurate hits and all planes returned
safely to base."
Israeli military sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said
eight one-story buildings were hit. Israel radio said two of the bombed
buildings were ammunition depots.
Violence continues as U.S. firms
promise to help end apartheid
JOHANNESBURG, South Africa - Major U.S. firms with investments
in South Africa called for sweeping reform of apartheid yesterday as
mixed-race crowds hurled gasoline bombs and stones at police in a Cape
Town suburb.
Three black men were shot and killed by police Saturday and a fourth
man was found burned to death in scattered weekend racial violence, ac-
cording to police reports.
In a full-page newspaper advertisement, the chairmen of 42 American
firms announced their support for the efforts of local business leaders to
abolish South Africa's institutionalized system of racial segregation.
The advertisement in the English-language Sunday Times bought by
the U.S. Corporate Council on South Africa said, "We pledge to play an
active role in peacefully achieving their goals."
The local companies have urged the abolition of racial discrimination,
negotiations with black leaders and equal citizenship for all races.
"Today, we add our voice to theirs," the AMerican investors said in the
first such intervention by U.S. businessmen.
OCrysler workers approve pact
DETROIT - Autoworkers at Chrysler Corp. voted to approve a new con-
tract, ending a 12-day walkout by 70,000 union members that cost the
company an estimated $15 million a day, United Auto Workers officials
said yesterday.
Before the vote was announced, local union leaders hailed the
agreement as a personal victory for United Auto Workers President
Owen Bieber.
"It's the best thing that's happened in many, many years. It's brought
the union together," said John Coyne, president of Local 212, which
represents 2,800 UAW members at a Chrysler trim plant in Detroit.
Union locals nationwide voted Saturda and early yesterday on the
three-year pact, which gives Chrysler workers pay and benefits com-
parable to their counterparts at Ford Motor Co. and General Motors
Local union leaders said there had been only token opposition to the
contract among rank-and-file.

"We had about 2,000, 2,500 people here (to vote), and about three voiced
any kind of dissent," Coyne said yesterday.
