State panel to
hold hearing
on 'U' racism
(Continued from Page 1)
Marvin Woods, president of the
Black Student Union responded, "I
think that publicity isn't the
problem. The problem is the
r incidents of racism... He's treating
publicity as the problem, but it's
the issue of racism which is. The
two shouldn't be confused."
Woods said he hoped the one-
time hearing would be part of an
ongoing process by the state to
help identify and solve racial
problems.Y

Countries react
to Soviet offer

MOSCOW (AP) - State-run
Soviet news media yesterday hailed
Mikhail Gorbachev's offer to rid
Europe of superpower medium-range
nuclear missiles as a 'historic
chance" which the United States
could not legitimately pass up.
"There is the possibility in a short
time to free our common European
home from a significant share of the
nuclear burden," Soviet journalist
Tomas Kolesnichenko said on the
television program "International
Panorama."
Broadcast media and the Tass news
agency also highlighted statements
from foreign leaders backing the new
Soviet proposal.
The media reaction, similar to
previous campaigns to marshal sup -
port for Kremlin positions, was
clearly designed to put pressure on
the United States to respond quickly
to the Soviet offer.
Also, Western Europeans yester -
day welcomed the surprise Soviet
offer, saying it was a long-awaited
breakthrough to an agreement.
Foreign Minister Hans-Dietrich
Genscher of West Germany said it
removed "the main obstacle" to an

accord. NATO Secretary-General'
Lord Carrington called the offer "a
substantial step forward."
The Danish Foreign Ministry said
it was "a good and positive signal."
The governments of Britain,
France, the Netherlands and Italy
were among those which refrained
from any quick assessment, saying
they wanted time to study the Soviet
offer.
U.S. Gen. Bernard Rogers, the
departing commander-in-chief of the
North Atlantic Treaty Organization,
warned against abolishing medium -
range nuclear missiles in Europe
without making progress on other
East-West disarmament issues - a
warning echoed elsewhere.
Soviet and U.S. arms control
negotiators in Geneva scheduled a
special session Monday to discuss
Gorbachev's appeal that an accord on
medium-range missiles be reached
"without delay."
Sens. Claiborne Pell (D-R.I.),
and Richard Lugar (R-Ind.), and U.S.
Assistant Secretary of Defense
Richard Perle, all in Geneva to ob -
serve the arms talks welcomed the
offer.

Soccer riots
Three girls help two of the wounded after yesterday's riot at the Zuiderpark Stadium in The Hague. The honor
Division match between Dutch soccer teams Ajax, from Amsterdam, and FC Den Haag was called off after 45
minutes of play. At least 25 were reported wounded.

but would not affect 21 existing
fraternities, sororities, co-
operatives, and non-residential
groups. It was initiated by area
residents who say large student
groups disrupt the neighborhood by
causing noise, litter, and parking
problems.
The Ann Arbor Planning
Commission supported the
proposal in January, and city
council tentatively approved it fast
month. The rezoning will become
law if eight of the 11
councilmembers support it again

tonight.
Eight votes are required for
passage instead of a simple
majority because several fraternities
and sororities filed petitions with
the city, protesting the plan. City
law requires a three-fourths vote
from the council to rezone property
if protests are filed from 20 percent
of the property owners within 100
feet.
According to Councilmember
Kathy Edgren (D-Fifth Ward), the
council will provide these eight
votes. "I anticipate the rezoning
will go through," Edgren said. "I

p"
feel that particular part of town has
its share of University-affiliated
housing."
University Associate Vice
President for Student Services
Thomas Easthope will also speak
out against the plan tonight,
according to Seiler.
Easthope could not be reached
for comment last night. Another
top University official - Vice
Provost for Information
Technology Douglas Van
Houweling - supported the
rezoning before the Ann Arbor
Planning Commission in January.

City-crime rate jumps in 1986

starting any anti-crime initiatives
during his two-year term as mayor.
But he said he is not sure if the
police department needs more
officers. "They may need more
staff, but I have to be convinced
that it would produce an
improvement. I'm not sure of that,"
Pierce said.
POLICE officials cited staff
'shortages as a major cause of the
crime increase. They have requested
52 additional patrolmen, officers,
and administrative assistants in the
next city budget, which will be
approved by city council this
spring. The increased staff would
cost around $2.4 million.
In a memo accompanying the
crime report, Police Chief William
Corbett cited figures showing that

while Ann Arbor's crime rate has
increased 28.5 percent since 1982,
the police department has grown by
only 3.3 percent.
Since Pierce was elected mayor
in 1985, the number of police
officers and staffers employed by
the city has remained at 185,
according to Assistant City
Administrator Donald Mason. The
police department budget has
increased slightly - by $501,000
- but Mason attributed the rise to
necessary salary increases and
equipment costs.
MASON pointed out, however,
that the mayor does not see the
budget before it is presented to city
council by the city administrator.
The mayor has no more influence
over the budget process than any
other member of the city council,

(Continued from Page 1)
Especially by the week's end,
some students' compassion wore
away. On the last day, one student
who asked to be nameless said, "I
hate them. I wouldn't give them
one cent."
In the evenings, as students left
the discos for their clean, air-
conditioned hotels, the sight of the
homeless evoked pity instead of
annoyance. "It's depressing to think
that each night when we go to sleep
in our comfortable hotels so many
of them are sleeping in the street,"
said LSA sophomore Sarah Smith.
While lack of shelter brought
women and their children onto the
sidewalks, signs of malnourishment
seemed to explain their begging.
Karen Miller, an LSA
sophomore, noticed the effects of
constant hunger on one Mexican
boy. "I looked at a kid and thought
he was three or four years old.
When I asked him, he said he was
seven. It was so sad."

he said.
Lunsford said he does not blame
Pierce for the staff shortages and
increased crime rate. "The reason
there hasn't been more money
given to the police department has
nothing to do with politics,"
Lunsford said. "I don't think there's
been an anti-police bias that has
diverted money away from the
police department into other
programs.".
He instead attributed the lack of
city money to the loss of federal
revenue-sharing funds, which were
cut off by Congress last year.
Corbett, in his memo, outlined
several other reasons for the crime
increase:
-Ann Arbor's status as an
affluent city situated near Detroit
and other metropolitan areas, which
leads to many crimes being
committed by outsiders.
-Drug addiction among city
criminals, which characterizes
repeat offenders.
-Jail and prison space shortages
throughout Michigan.
