PIERCE'S Democratic city
council colleagues praise him as a
strong leader with diverse political
experience. Pierce's leadership
style, they say, is more suited to
supporting their own initiatives
than proposing new ones.

Epton said. "The mayor is in a

Moslem kidnappers release
tape of U.S. hostage Turner
BEIRUT, Lebanon - Moslem kidnappers released yesterday a
videotape showing U.S. hostage Jesse Turner saying his abductors were
determined to trade him and three other educators for 400 Arab prisoners'
Turner, 39, of Boise, Idaho,.said Islamic Jihad for the Liberation of
Palestine was "firm in its demand" that a swap be arranged. The group
had claimed responsibility for the Jan. 24 abduction of the four.
But his voice was barely audible in the poor quality, three-minute
tape, which was delivered to the independent Beirut newspaper An-
Senate passes highway bill
WASHINGTON - The Senate approved an $88 billion
transportation bill yesterday that frees up $312 million a year in
highway aid for Michigan and lets states decide whether to increase
speed limits to 65 mph on rural interstates.
The Senate gave the five-year financing bill final approval on the 67-
33 vote to override a veto by President' Reagan, with both oft
Michigan's Democratic senators, Donald Riegle and Carl Levin,
supporting the override.
Final approval of the legislation was welcome news to the state
Transportation Department, which had been awaiting overdue federal aid
for the spring construction season just getting under way.
The DOT's Susan Wenzlick said state officials issued short-term
bonds earlier yesterday to allow them to proceed with planned roadwork,
but now would be able to promptly pay off those bonds.
U.S. soldier and W. German
wife defect to Soviet Union
MOSCOW - The Kremlin announced yesterday an American
soldier and his West German wife had defected to the Soviet Union and
been granted asylum because they feared political persecution.
The U.S. Army in West Germany and the Pentagon in Washington
could not confirm the defection, which would be the first by an
American serviceman to the Soviet Union since the Vietnam War.
The Pentagon issued a statement, however, saying it was
investigating an enlisted man with a name similar to that announced by-
the Soviets who had deserted in West Germany a month ago. It said it
was not certain if he was the same person.
welcome Pope John Paul
SANTIAGO, Chile - Slum dwellers thronged to welcome Pope
John Paul II yesterday but stoned the police who escorted him. Some.
shared his podium to accuse Chile's military regime of torture, murder
and causing their poverty.
Before setting out for La Bandera shantytown, John Paul spent
nearly 45 minutes with President August Pinochet, who the pontiff has.
said runs a "dictatorial" government. Vatican sources described the
meeting as courteous but would not reveal details.
Protesters smashed all the windows of two police buses that led the
Pope on a crisp, brilliant autumn morning to the squalid slum whose
90,000 people are plagued by drug addiction, prostitution and grinding

The legal danger of foul
language and dyed ducks
PONTIAC- Ever had one of those days when you feel like
shouting obscenities for a while?
Don't do it in front of your mother, sister, or female acquaintance.
It's against the law.
Still on the Michigan books is an 1846 law making it a
misdemeanor to "use any indecent, immoral, obscene, vulgar or.
insulting language in the presence or hearing of any woman or child..."'
. And if you're so rythm-impaired you think the national anthem has a
good beat and is great to dance to, you're out of luck in more than the
obvious way. Michigan law not only prohibits its playing as a dance
number, but forbids its being played as a medley.
There are a few more laws you need to be wary of.
If you want to buy baby chicks, bunnies, or ducks for Easter dyed in
traditional pink or lavender colors, you'll have a tough time. It's d
misdemeanor to sell artificially dyed animals.
It's a misdemeanor to distribute or post liquor ads that refer, either
through picture, quotations, or scenes to the lives of deceased U.S.
It's against the law to let your dog, cat, or chicken run loose in a
