example, the Nicaraguan Sister
City Task Force. Pierce spent two
weeks in Nicaragua last year with
the task force.
Former Republican Mayor Lou
Belcher says he understands Pierce's
dilemma. "The mayor of this city
could put in 200 hours a week if he
had the time," Belcher says. "The
tendency is to get wrapped up in it
and ignore the city charter."
Belcher, who says he worked 20
hours each week as mayor, adds that
Pierce should "discipline himself'
and avoid involving himself in the
city administrator's work.
City Administrator Godfrey
Collins says he does not believe the

The main obstacle blocking a
full-time mayor position is money
- the mayor's salary of $13,750 is
far too low to attract someone full-
time. And that salary is not likely
to rise in the near future.
Salaries for the mayor and city
councilmembers are determined by
the Local Officers Compensation
Commission, a panel appointed by
the mayor's office that meets every
three years. The commission last
year gave Pierce a raise from his
previous salary of $10,000 but
refused to grant his request for a
Several commission members
say they do not support a further
raise. "As long as we have a city
administrator, I think it should stay
a part-time job," says Commission
member Dan Halloran, a member of
the Ann Arbor School Board.
The mayor has traditionally been
paid only a small stipend designed
to cover expenses, according to city
and commission officials. They
could not provide specific figures.
Tenants advertise spring sub lets

University Housing Advisor Sherie
"It's not a tough process," she
said. "We're really happy to talk to
people about it."
Veramay said University sub-
tenant leases protect tenants if
problems arise, and makes sub-
tenants aware of their respons-
ibilities while they live in someone
else's apartment. However, she said
not all students choose to use
housing's sublet lease.

MODERN Management rental
company also provides helpful
services for tenants, according to
Office Manager Sandy Sergent.
"We want to know our tenants,"
she said. The company takes a poll
of tenants who wish to sublet,
rental rates, security deposits, and
length of availability, then advertise
the rooms and apartments in the
Daily's spring/summer sublet
supplement, she said.
Modern Management insists that
subtenants fill out their application
and be approved as one of their
tenants, Sergent said.
When tenants sublet to friends
with casual negotiations, Veramay
said, problems often occur because
of misunderstandings concerning
rent payment, maintenance, and
phone and utility bills.
"It's a business transaction," she
said. Subtenant forms substantiate
the seriousness of the situation and
THE HOUSING Office
distributes guidelines for subletting
which explain the entire procedure.
Housing suggests getting a security
deposit from subtenants, keeping in
touch with the landlord to assure
the subtenants are behaving
responsibly and paying their rent,
and using an inventory checklist
before and after the sublet.
It's easier to find subtenants for
spring term than summer term,
because more students choose to
stay, according to housing's
guidelines. Subletters can expect to
rent out efficiencies and one-
bedrooms, which go quickest, for
75 percent or more of the regular
rental rate. Two bedroom and larger
units sublet for 50 to 75 percent of
the regular rental rate.
Veramay said this season's
sublet market is no different than in
Senate continues probe into
troubled Zilwaukee Bridge
LANSING - The state Senate agreed yesterday to give subpoena
power to a panel probing the safety of the over-budget, behind-schedule
On a voice vote, senators gave the State Affairs, Tourism and
Transportation Committee the power to subpoena witnesses. With that
power comes the ability to find uncooperative witnesses in contempt of
the Legislature and to threaten them with up to five years in prison.
Shortly after the panel got the power, it approved its first five
Soviets release dissident's
son from labor camp
FRANKFURT, West Germany- Soviet authorities have freed the
teen-age son of dissident Anatoly Koryagin from a labor camp and told
the family to apply for permission to leave the Soviet Union, a human
rights group said yesterday.
The elder Koryagin, one of the Soviet Union's best-known
dissidents, was released from prison last month after serving five years
of a 12-year term for accusing authorities of sending sane dissidents to
The Frankfurt-based International Association for Human Rights said
it reached Koryagin by telephone at his home in the city of Kharkov
yesterday and was told 19-year-old Ivan had returned home the day
Hostage in Lebanon says
fellow American is dying
BEIRUT, Lebanon - Moslem kidnappers released a videotape
yesterday of American hostage Jesse Turner saying fellow American
captive Alann Steen is dying.
"You all know that our fellow Alann Steen is dying," Turner said in
the videotape delivered to the daily newspaper in As-Safir.
"The doctor says in his report that: 'After checking the patient -
Alann Steen I found out that he had a crisis in his blood pressure... The
symptoms he had were: headache, hemiparicia, anxiety and difficulty in
breathing,"' Turner said.
The videotape was accompanied by a typewritten English text of
Two female prison guards
assaulted at Ionia prison
IONIA - At least two female prison guards were assaulted at the
Michigan Training Unit in Ionia, including one victim who was raped
and choked by a convict, authorities said.
The attacks were revealed in the wake of the slaying Tuesday of
prison guard Josephine McCallum, 28, who was raped and beaten to
death while working alone in an area at the State Prison of Southern
Michigan at Jackson.
In one case at the Ionia medium-security prison, a 30-year-old guard
was raped and choked in the prison auditorium Aug. 24. Anthony
Young, 26, of Detroit was convicted last month of first-degree criminal
sexual conduct and is awaiting sentencing.

Scientists say sex scam spells
self-destruction for insects
WASHINGTON - Female tobacco budworm moths are being lured
into self-destruction by male insects in a sex scam engineered by Ag-
riculture Department scientists.
The male budworms are sterile hybrids, causing the unsuspecting
would-be mothers to lay eggs that don't hatch.
"A sterile male can keep females busy two of the three nights they're
looking to mate," said one USDA entomologist. "That's a lot of eggs
The scam involves the cross-breeding of male budworms with "a
related, harmless insect" cousin, the department's Agricultural Research
Service said Friday.
Marion Laster of the agency's Southern Field Crop Insect Manage-
ment Laboratory in Stoneville, Miss., said the hybrids could save
millions of dollars in crops lost to budworms, which quickly develop
resistance to chemical pesticides.
The new genetic control should be ready in about three years, when
chemical resistance probably will be widespread, said Edgar King, a
colleague of Laster's.
