Jury finds Pursell
By STEVE BLONDER
A jury found the remaining
defendants in the "Pursell 118" case
guilty of trespassing on Friday.
Judge George Alexander gave the
108 convicted protesters a choice
between paying a $40 fine,
performing 20 hours of community
service, or working one night at the
Ann Arbor homeless shelter before
The charge will be deleted from
the defendants' records if they
choose one of these alternatives. If
the defendants refuse these choices,
they must appear in court for
alternative sentencing on April 3.
The defendants are meeting
tonight to determine whether or not
to file an appeal.
LSA Sophomore David Austin,
a defendant in the case, feels that
Alexander's sentencing options do
not constitute a penalty, since the
same options were offered to each
defendant before the case went to
trial last week.
According to juror Ralph
Stephenson, the videotapes shown
by the prosecutor of the protesters
being arrested was the decisive i
evidence in the case.1
Prosecuting attorney Bob I
Cooper's case revolved around those l
videotapes which showed building
owners John Seeley and Doug
Roberts asking the demonstrators to 1
The defense based its case on the
good character of the defendants and
the notion that people of good 1
character are not likely to commit at
Molly Reno, an attorney for the
defense, raised the possibility thatI
the third owner of the building,
Phil Bowen, may have given the
protesters permission to be there.
Nancy Francis, another defense
attorney, said the building does not
officially close at the end of normal
business hours so the protesters did
not have to leave.
The defendants were arrested over
a four-day period last March while
prostesting U.S. Representative
Carl Pursell's support for President
Reagan's plan to send $100 million
in military and humanitarian aid to
the Nicaraguan Contra rebels.

Shamir said on Israel Radio, before flying to the United States on a'
10-day visit, that the new relationship would put Israel on a par with
non-NATO allies like Japan, Australia, South Korea and Egypt.
"Israel is considered for the first time, officially, an ally," Shamir

The United States has raised the profile of its military links with

Shiites might have Waite
BEIRUT, Lebanon - Druse militia chief Walid Jumblatt said'
yesterday he believes that Terry Waite is held by Iranian-backed Shiite
Moslems and appealed to them to free the missing British hostage
Jumblatt's plea came hours after his friend, leading Christian
politician Jean Obeid, was released unharmed after four days in the
hands of kidnappers.
Jumblatt charged publicly for the first time that Waite was being
held by the Shiite Moslem Hezbollah, orParty of God.
"I strongly believe Waite is with Hezbollah. Some of the kidnappers
thought that it was possible to squeeze some money out of his
abduction," said the Druse leader, whose militiamen provided initials
security for Waite in Lebanon.
House panel blasts Reagan
WASHINGTON - President Reagan was poorly prepared for the
U.S.-Soviet summit meeting last October and the two-day meetinge
ended with "an astonishing degree of confusion" about potential nuclear -
arms control agreements, the House Armed Services Committee said'
The report by the Democratic-controlled panel was sharply critical of
Reagan and his administration, citing confusion and disputes among
U.S. officials about the wide-ranging arms control proposals discussed
and almost accepted by Reagan and Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev. ;.
"With the value of hindsight, it is possible to suggest that the'.
Reagan administration was ill-prepared for the negotiations it
participated in, and consequently, would have been ill-served had its
product been accepted," the panel said.
White House officials denied comment on the report, saying they had
