LANSING - Cascading win -
dows of water, sidewalk cafes, and a
x riverfront theater are just a few of
the things University of Michigan
and Michigan State University
students have in mind for the future
of the state capital.
The ideas came out of a project
between the two schools and the
Capital Park Subcommittee of the
Capital Revitalization Task Force,
a state agency.
Architecture and landscape archi -
tecture students were asked to look
at the subcommittee's plans for
renovating downtown Lansing and
; building a state park around the
" Capitol. They were also asked to

The way the students drew up
their plans was unique - MSU and
University students students were
matched together. Cooperation, not
competition, was the order in this
meeting of the two schools.
Current plans for a Michigan
Capitol Park include a Welcome
Center, a Michigan Library and
Museum, and an Environmental
Center featuring an Aquarium, a
360-degree theater, and an Ice Age

Architecture Prof. Tony Bauer, who
are both on the subcommittee,
came up with the idea of getting
student input last summer.
POLAKOWSKI said students
often get to try their hands at real-
life design situations.
"We use the talents of the
students to try to influence reality,"
he said, adding that similar projects
have been done in Muskegon, St.
Clair, Cheboygan, and Monroe.
The teams presented their
drawings to city and state officials
on Feb. 19. Hector Chiunti, who
directs the subcommittee, was
impressed with the work he saw
there, and said he expects it to be
incorporated in the final plan.
Polakowski said that this was

serious condition, although the
reason for his hospitalization is

Bishop's daughter, Elizabeth,
said last night that her father is
doing well, although he will remain
in intensive care for 24 hours.
Elizabeth Brown, a retired
research associate at the Law
School, said yesterday afternoon
that there is no cause for immediate
concern. Brown is coordinating
information about the incident.
Before retiring and becoming a
professor emeritus in 1976, Bishop,
80, had been on the University's
law faculty since 1949. In 1981, he
completed a term as one of four
U.S. members of the Permanent
Court of Arbitration, a group
whose members can be called upon
to arbitrate international disputes.
Bishop is still on the editorial
board of the American Journal of
International Law, of which he was
Editor-in-Chief for 10 years.

Plane crash probe begins
ROMULUS, Mich. - Investigators from the National Trans -
portation Safety Board yesterday began examining the wreckage of the
commuter aircraft that crashed Wednesday at the Detroit Metropolitan
Airport killing nine, at the start of a week-long field investigation. The
agency's conclusions regarding the cause of the crash likely will not be
ready for nine months, said Mike Benson, NTSB spokesman.
"We will remove the wreckage when we feel comfortable enough
that we have factual information on the crash," Benson said. "Our heavy
focus is to reconstruct the final minutes of the flight."
Benson said the airplane was not required to carry a black box,: a
device that records cockpit conversations and the status of the plane's
Meese bolsters Walsh's status
WASHINGTON - Attorney General Edwin Meese said yesterday h
is appointing Lawrence Walsh to head a new office of independent
counsel as "an insurance policy" against legal challenges by Lt. Col.
Oliver North that threatened to torpedo Walsh's investigation into the
In doing so, Meese linked the independent counsel more closely to
the executive branch of government, a result which Congress sought to
avoid in enacting the 1978 Ethics in Government Act under which
Walsh was appointed.
Walsh, however, endorsed the new arrangement.
In a statement, Meese said that a lawsuit filed by North, raising
constitutional questions about the 1978 law, "places a question mark.
over ...Walsh's activities... by creating a parallel position securing to
Judge Walsh the powers, authority and independence that the Ethics in
Government Act provides, we remove that question mark."
Senate passes income tax cut
LANSING - The state Senate agreed yesterday to slice the state
income tax rate from 4.6 percent to 4.4 percent and promised to make
sure Michigan's blind and low-income elderly don't end up with bigger
Approval of the rollback on a 34-2 vote came after three days of
squabbling over the fairness of the proposal.
"The unemployed in this state, the senior citizens and the blind will
not be losers under the income tax rollback," promised Sen. John
The two freshman senators, backed by fellow Democrats, set up a
series of procedural roadblocks which postponed a vote and led majority
Republicans to strike an agreement pledging to restore some special tax
breaks. The exemptions and credits for the unemployed, elderly and
blind otherwise will be eliminated.
NATO briefed on arms deal
BRUSSELS, Belgium - The chief U.S. arms negotiator gave the
NATO allies an upbeat assessment yesterday of prospects for a
superpower agreement to scrap medium-range nuclear missiles in'
Europe, sources said.
Max Kampelman and the two other delegates to the U.S.-Soviet
arms talks in Geneva, Maynard Gliman and Ron Lehman, briefed the 16 ~
NATO ambassadors at a closed-door, two-hour meeting before flying to
consultations in Washington.
The Geneva negotiations got new life last weekend when Soviet
leader Mikhail Gorbachev announced willingness to sign a treaty on
medium-range missiles separately from a package accord covering long-
range missiles and Star Wars, the U.S. plan for a space-based defense
A Little secession problem
One of halls in Mary Markley is threatening to secede from another
hall. It's about taxation without representation - sort of.
First Little, currently under the rule of the Little House Council,
paid $775 in hall dues, according to First Little resident Steve Mebius,
an LSA freshman. But most of the Little House Council officers come
from Second Little.
Those officers spent $500 of the money on weekly movies, said
Mebius. But they neglected to tell First Little about them.
Furious, the First Little hall circulated a petition to secede from
Little House, and form their own house.
If they secede, First Little wants to either split the remaining funds
with Second Little, or have all of its funds returned. "We got a bad deal
because they spent all our money," said Steve Leppard, First Little
resident and engineering freshman. "It would be great if we could get it
LSA freshman Rhonda Kohnstamm, president of the Little House
Council and Second Little resident, would not comment.
The vote to secede was scheduled for late last night.
