Law professor to be WSU dean
By LOUIS STANCATO
University Law School Prof. John Reed has
been appointed Dean of Law at Wayne State
University, officials said yesterday.
Reed, 68, was approaching the University's
mandatory retirement age of 70, but his new
appointment will allow him to continue
working for another five years. Under an
agreement with the state Board of Education,
the WSU Board of Regents extended the
After his 70th birthday, Reed's tenure will
automatically be extended.
"The appointment cut off only one year of
teaching, with the opportunity of four more
years of work," Reed said.
"THERE HAS been speculation that my
head needs examining," he quipped, then added,
"I'm delighted to be doing it."
Reed has been a college professor since
1949, and is a renowned expert in evidence.
The unanimous appointment by Wayne
State's search committee did not surprise WSU
officials, who directed their efforts to bring the
prestigeous Reed to their university.
Wayne State's current law school dean,
Robert Abrams, said Reed is "a recognized
authority of evidence and an expert in
continuing legal education. He is a man who
will help continue the progress of Wayne State
to the top of the ranks in American law
University of Michigan Law School Dean
Terrance Sandalow said Reed is a "wonderful
appointment for Wayne to make... We're sorry
to lose him, even for one year."
Reed brings nearly 40 years of legal
experience. In 1942 he graduated from Cornell
University with a bachelor's degree in law, and
later went on to receive a doctor of juridicial
science degree from Columbia University in
Reed served as the Dean of Law at Colorado
University from 1965-1968, and Associate
Professor of Law at the University of
Oklahoma from 1946-49.

The registrar's office looks at
three main areas in each
application, according to Wright:
dTo what extent the student has
settled in Michigan;
e-How likely it seems that the
student is living in Michigan for
reasons other than just attending
school. If the student has made
many contacts outside the

friends apart from school, for
instance - that would help his

If the registrar's office rejects a

half of all cases - students can
make one more appeal within the
University. And if the appeals

it does in 80 percent of all cases -
the only alternative is to take it to
Usually the registrar's office
rejects about half of those applying
for residency, often citing that they
haven't adequately demonstrated a
real intent to remain in the state.
It takes anywhere from eight to
14 weeks for an initial request to be
reviewed. The registrar's office is
still adjusting to a 90 percent
turnover in staff that occurred last
year when the former director of the
residency office retired.

After that, the only option left is
for the student to sue the University
through the civil court system.
"It's extremely difficult because
residency is a subjective thing that
has to be represented in an objective
manner," said Roderick Daane, the
University's chief attorney who
handled most of the University's
residency cases in the '70s.
"In my 16 years at it I don't
recall one suit that was totally
successful," he said.
COMPILED FROM ASSOCIATED PRESS REPORTS
1,500 arrested in Indian riots
NEW DELHI, India - Mobs of Hindus angered by Sikh terrorism
rampaged through the capital yesterday and battled Sikhs outside their
temples. Police reported 1,500 arrests as they struggled to control the
16,000 Hindu rioters.
Bloodied protesters were seen at several confrontations with club-
swinging police, but there was no immediate figure on the total number
The rioting erupted during a general strike called by a Hindu party to
express "anger and anguish" over the massacre Sunday of 24 Hindus in
Punjab state by assailants described by police as Sikh terrorists.
"The situation is very tense. We can't say what we are going to do,"
area police chief R. Mohan said yesterday evening in densely populated
old Delhi, where the major sectarian battle erupted at the historic
Sisganj Sikh temple.
General strikes or other protests were declared in six Indian states
yesterday, but widespread violence developed only in New Delhi, where
7,000 extra police and paramilitary troops were called in.
Israel denies funneling Iran
arms money to Contras
JERUSALEM - Israeli leaders yesterday denied new assertions that
their country siphoned funds from arms deals with Iran to Nicaraguan
rebels. Foreign Minister Shimon Peres called the reports "complete
Denials from the top three government officials put Israel in
apparent conflict with President Reagan, who was quoted in Time
magazine as saying a third country channeled money to the rebels from
inflated prices Iran paid for weapons.
Newspapers quoted Americanofficials as saying Reagan meant
Israel, which has acknowledged secretly shipping U.S. arms to Iran but
has denied handling payments to the rebels, known as Contras.
Defense Minister Yitzhak Rabin told Parliament during a 45-minute
debate: "The Israeli government doesn't maintain contact or ties or
supply weapons from here to the rebels in Nicaragua. It has not given
approval for any Israeli to assist, supply know-how or weapons from
Israel to the rebels."
GM faces effects of buyout
DETROIT - General Motors Corp.'s biggest challenge in the wake
of its $700 million buyout of Electronic Data Systems Corp. founder
H. Ross Perot will be keeping EDS workers from following the
outspoken billionaire, analysts said yesterday.
Perot resigned as chairman and chief executive officer of EDS and
from the GM board of directors Monday. The buyout deal also includes
a clause forbidding him to start a company that would compete with
DES during the next three years and to raid EDS for top employees for
But several industry analysts suggested the clause could be
challenged and might prove unenforceable.
"These things tend not to stand up in court when challenged,
particularly after a year," said Joseph Phillippi, an analyst with E.F.
Hutton in New York.
Abortion clinic fire probed
KALAMAZOO - Agents began a federal investigation yesterday to
determine what caused a fire that destroyed a Planned Parenthood clinic,
as the facility's officials voted to rebuild.
"It's going to be back and it's going to be better than ever," said
Louise Safron, executive director of the Planned Parenthood-
Reproductive Health Care Center, which had been picketed by anti-
abortion groups almost daily.
Capt. Glenn Nevelle, chief of detectives for the city's Public Safety
Department, said authorities had not determined what started the
Monday morning fire, which caused an estimated $750,000 in damage
to the two-story building.
Marty Myers, Kalamazoo fire marshal, said it was too early to
determine whether it was arson.
The U.S. Treasury Department's Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and
Firearms sent 21 agents to begin its investigation of the fire, a

each other for the stalemate that has suspended state reimbursement for

Service Employees International Union Local 79, urged during the rally

He said workers at several inner-city and rural nursing homes have

building a framework of where and
how to develop.
Connie Dimond, coordinator of
the downtown development project,
said the city will consider building
new parking structures to alleviate
congestion caused by the addition of
new retail shops and restaurants.
She said it is possible to convert
surface parking lots, such as the
one by the Ann Arbor Public
Library, to parking structures.

Washington, and N. Main streets
for further development and the
addition of street level shops.
Other areas targetted for
developmentinclude the vacant
space near University Towers, and
the downtown area near Fifth,
Division, and Washington streets.
Other areas under consideration are
areas near First Street, and land east
of Kerrytown and behind
