Council
discusses
frat party
crackdown
By EVE BECKER
Residents from the North Burns
Park Association, the residential
area surrounding Hill Street, spoke
during the Ann Arbor City
Council's public comments session
last night in an effort to force the
Icity to take action against rowdy
fraternity parties in their
neighborhood.
Five community members
appeared before council saying the
conditions living next to fraternities
are "deplorable," owing to noise
levels, litter, reckless driving,
people urinating in their yards, and
illegal parking. They say these
problems are threats to neigh-
borhood safety and to the high
school-aged children who often
attend the open fraternity parties.
Residents complained that the
University has a "hands-off" policy
and is doing an inadequate job
controlling unacceptable behavior
from fraternities and other group-
housing.
Although the council did not
take any legislative action on the
subject last night, members
promised to come up with measures
which would force both police and
the University to impose stricter
regulations on fraternity parties.
Councilmembers suggested
adding an increased police force to
work overtime on controlling the
problems in the area and changing
zoning laws which would prevent
more houses from being converted
to large group housing.
North Burns Park resident Jay.
Chaplin suggested limiting parties
to sizes dependent upon the house
size and also asking the University
to declare a "dry" rush.

for Academic Affairs and Provost

faculty about his goals for the

"We should stress quality of

COMPILED FROM ASSOCIATED PRESS REPORTS
NATO members will discuss
missile withdrawal proposal
GLENEAGLES, Scotland-NATO defense ministers gathered
yesterday at this golf resort to confront the Americans about a near-deal
at the Reykjavik summit that raised concern about creating a Europe at
the mercy of superior Soviet conventional forces.
President Reagan and Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev almost
reached agreement to remove medium-range missiles from Europe, a
prospect that caused complaints from some NATO generals and more
discreet grumbles from politicians worried about Western European
security.
U.S. Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger and NATO defense
ministers will debate the strategic future of NATO following the
summit at which both superpowers offered huge nuclear arms cuts.
The basic fear is that withdrawal of U.S. cruise and Pershing 2
missiles, whose deployment provoked protests by the anti-nuclear,
movements, would leave Western Europe in an inferior position to the
Communist Warsaw Pact's larger conventional forces.
Mozambique president dies
JOHANNESBURG, South Africa-President Samora Machel of
Mozambique, a guerrilla commander who led his country to
independence, died in an overnight plane crash, the presidents of South
Africa and Kenya said yesterday.
The South African announcement said Machel was among 38 people
aboard a Soviet-built twin-engine Tupolev 134A jet that crashed in
eastern South Africa during the night en route from Zambia to Maput.
the capital of Mozambique.
Machel's death is the latest of several setbacks Mozambique has
suffered since gaining independence from Portugal 11 years ago. Machel
was one of the few remaining leaders linked to the African anti-colonial
struggle of the 1960's.
Forthe'black-ruled states of southern Africa, it could delay efforts
toward new alliances and tactics in a renewed confrontation with their
powerful white-ruled neighbor, South Africa.
A statement from the office of South African President P.W. Botha
said Botha expressed "deep regret and profound shock at the death of
President Samora Machel."
Israeli Parliament swears in
new prime minister Shamir
JERUSALEM-The Israeli Parliament yesterday gave Yitzhak
Shamir and his proposed 25-member Cabinet an overwhelming vote of
confidence as he was sworn in as Israel's ninth prime minister.
The vote was passed by a show of hands, with 82 legislators voting
in favor, 17 against and three abstaining.
Shamir, 71, who served as prime minister for a year in 1983-84,
took over from caretaker prime minister Shimon Peres, in keeping with
an unprecedented joint-rule accord between Shamir's right-wing Likud
bloc and the left-leaning Labor Party.
Peres succeeds Shamir as foreign minister under the agreement,
forged after neither party won enough votes in national elections to rule
on its own.
Before the vote, Shamir said in a speech before the Knesset, or
parliament, that as prime minister he would prevent Palestinian "gangs
from entrenching themselves in Lebanon and establishing bases there."
He also said a "supreme priority" of his government would be to funnel
funds into increased Jewish settlement in the occupied territories.
Shamir said he would make Middle East peace a priority but added
that Israel and Jordan would not reach the negotiating table unless the
neighboring Arab kingdom gave up its demand for an international
peace conference.
Toxic tide hits Texas coast
CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas-A toxic "red tide" that has killed
millions of fish along Texas' Gulf Coast has moved into Mexican
waters and could linger until the end of the year if temperatures do not
drop, officials said yesterday.
Since the explosion of microscopic organisms appeared in late
August near Galveston, city officials have closed beaches to swimmers,
and the oyster harvest, scheduled to open Nov. 1, has been suspended
from south of Galveston to the Mexican border.
Hal Osburn, harvest program leader for the Texas Parks and Wildlife
Department's marine laboratory in Rockport, said yesterday the red tide
was about 1 to 4 miles wide from Port O'Connor to the Mexican
border, a distance of about 170 miles.
"It could be up to 3,000 square miles of the Gulf of Mexico that has
some red tide in it," Osburn said.
Merchants complain that publicity about this puzzling natural
phenomenon has hurt business and scared off tourists.
U.S, Mint markets gold coin
WASHINGTON-The first general-circulation U.S. gold coin to be
minted in more than a half-century went on sale yesterday with Treasury
Department officials reporting brisk demand for the American Eagle
coins.
By midday, officials at the U.S. Mint said they had processed orders for
232,000 ounces of gold, with 18 of 25 primary dealers making requests.
for the new coins.
The Mint is not selling coins directly to the public, but the dealers
will resell the coins to a network of coin shops, precious metal dealers,

brokerage firms, banks and savings and loans.
Officials estimated that the coins will begin showing up for sale to
the public as early as Thursday and should be in widespread distribution
by the end of the month.

Executive and former FBI agent
added, "whenI am governor, the
criminals will live in fear of the
law."
Blanchard focused on his track-
record as governor and Michigan's
prospects for the future. Calling
Michigan the "comeback state,"
Blanchard stressed the state's return
to financial solvency evidenced by
the balanced budget, a higher state
credit rating, and lower
unemployment rates.
Both Lucas and Blanchard
expressed their opinions on such
key campaign issues as abortion,
gun control, education, and
Michigan's business climate.
BLANCHARD
ADVOCATED a woman's
choice for an abortion and continued
public funding of abortions for poor
women. "They are entitled to make
the same decisions," Blanchard said
of impovrished women.
Lucas, describing himself as
"proud to be the right to life
candidate for governor," said, "I
don't believe that anyone, rich or
poor, has the right to take a human
life."
Lucas said he favors national
gun control measures for easily
concealable handguns while
Blanchard said existing laws need to
be enforced and the prison system
expanded in order to deal with
crime.
BLANCHARD VOWED to
continue supporting higher
education and said that he has
already increased state funding of
universities by 45 percent. He also
cited his proposed 'B.E.S.T. Plan"
in which parents invest a
predetermined sum with the state
for their children when they are

young. The investment and the
interest gained would 'build a
scholarshipafund for the childrens'
college career.
Specific details of how the
program will operate have not yet
been worked out.
Lucas criticized the B.E.S.T.
Plan as unaffordable for the poor
and said that people will be better
off investing their money in the
private sector. "When you think of
public investment, think of
Zilwaukee, think of the People
Mover," he said, referring to
engineering mistakes and cost over-
runs on the Zilwaukee bridge and
Detroit's People Mover.
REFERRING TO the state's
business climate Blanchard termed
Michigan the "entrepreneurial hot
spot of the Midwest." The
population is growing and
Michigan is a "magnet" for'capital
investment, he said adding that
yesterday the Chrysler Corporation
invested more than $1 billion in
Michigan.
Lucas, however, said Michigan's
businesses are suffocating under a
blanket of higher taxes. He charged
that companies like Stroh's and
Wonder Bread have left Michigan
because "they could not afford to
stay here."
Lucas criticized Blanchard for
raising taxes by 38 percent and for
spending public funds on "Yes
Michigan" advertisements which he
feels are campaign commercials in
the guise of tourism promotion.
BLANCHARD SLAMMED
Lucas by citing Wayne County's
$70 million debt and maintaining
that it has the "lowest credit rating
of any county in the nation."
According to Blanchard there has
been the threat of "payless paydays"
in Wayne County during Lucas'
tenure.
Rick Wiener, chairman of the
Michigan Democratic Party, feels
Blanchard not only won the debate,
but "clearly demonstrated he is by
far the superior candidate for
Governor."
Deborah Townsend, a
spokeswoman for Lucas, also
claimed the debate as a victory for
her candidate and added, "he was the
only one who had anything new to
say. He caught (Blanchard) off
guard
