On the issue of rent control,
which will appear as Proposal C on
the city ballot, the two candidates are
again divided. Krebaum vehemently
opposes rent control because, he
says, it will distort the free market.
"History shows that whenever you
control the price of a certain com-
modity, that creates a shortage of
that commodity," Krebaum said. He
added that landlords will avoid rent
control by taking properties off the

of the people on the street," Kre-
baum said.
Hunter has supported council
Democrats' efforts , arising from the
Art Fair incident, to oversee the po-
lice department. He backed a pro-
posal requiring the police to provide
the council with monthly reports on
crime in Ann Arbor, although the
police department opposes the idea,
saying monthly reports would be too
time consuming.
In addition, Hunter stresses city
and University cooperation to ensure
safety at night, like last year's ordi-

'Government action tends
to make whatever problem
they're attacking worse ...
- Bill Krebaum, Liber-
tarian candidate for Ann
Arbor City Council, First

rental market.
Hunter supports the rent control
ordinance, but is "not going to go
out and campaign for it." Since it is
a citizen-sponsored initiative, Hunter
says, it would be inappropriate for
him to try to influence voters' deci-
The two candidates do agree on
one issue, that the police acted
poorly in trying to disperse an Art
Fair crowd last summer.
"In their efforts to clear the street,
they were not respectful of the rights

nance to provide lighting in off-
campus areas.
"There is some cooperation right
now. But the University can do more
to insure their students are safe,"
Hunter said.
Krebaum is also concerned with
such violent crimes as rape, and ad-
vocates setting priorities in crime-
fighting. He and other Libertarians,
advocate placing "less emphasis on
victimless crimes like prostitution
and gambling and not so many re-
sources to parking tickets".

Compiled from Associated Press reports
Panama police halt march
PANAMA CITY - Police and. soldiers using shotguns, rubber
truncheons, and tear gas broke up a march yesterday by thousands of
opponents of Panama's military leader, Gen. Manuel Antonio Noriega.
Meanwhile, a general strike that has closed down an estimated 90
percent of Panama's industry and commerce entered its second week.
Ignoring an order to disperse, a crowd of more than 10,000 cheering
people began walking toward the capital's central business district
yesterday afternoon.
Minutes later, a tanker truck equipped with a turret over the cab sped
through the line of marchers, spraying hundreds of people with a choking
mixture of water and chemicals that sent them fleeing into side streets.
Behind the truck charged police and soldiers firing birdshot and beating
people with 18-inch-long rubber truncheons.
Reporters saw at least two people trampled in the rush to flee,
including a woman who suffered a compound leg fracture.
First U.S. troops arrive home
FORT BRAGG, N.C. - The first American troops to return from a
training mission in Honduras, sent to counter a Nicaraguan advance earlier
this month, parachuted into their home base yesterday amid cheers of rela-
tives and friends.
An estimated 800 soldiers dropped into the Sicily Drop Zone at Fort
Bragg, home of the 82nd Airborne Division, at about 5 p.m. They were
met by a military band and commanding generals from the base.
Earlier in the day, the troops from the 82nd Airborne whistled as they
boarded seven C-141 transports for the United States.
"It's great to be going home," said Sgt. Dale Taylor of Red Springs,
FAA to investigate reports of
passenger-led jet evacuation
DETROIT - Federal officials will investigate reports that passengers,
not crew members, initiated the evacuation of a Northwest Airlines jet on
a taxiway after a fuel flare-up, the head of the Federal Aviation Ad-
ministration said yesterday.
The plane did not catch fire after the brief ignition of residual fuel
Sunday night, authorities said, but the incident closed Detroit Metro-
politan Airport for 20 minutes and left four passengers hurt.
"I think the unfortunate thing here is that the passengers in confusion
initiated the escape exit without being ordered to do so by the captain,"
FAA Administrator Allan McArtor said. "And of course we'd like to se
that the captain be able to call the shots in this regard."
Officials said Flight 288, originating in San Diego and carrying 144
passengers and seven crew members, landed safely at 8:20 p.m. Sunday.
Medicaid to provide condoms
DETROIT - Beginning June 1, Michigan Medicaid recipients will be
able to receive up to 24 free condoms from their localpharmacies in a
program aimed at birth control and stemming the spread of AIDS, state
officials said yesterday.
The state Department of Social Services is in the process of notifying
Medicaid recipients and pharmacists of the program, said DSS spokes-
person Chuck Peller.
There is no specific budget for the program, and the state has no
estimate of what the program may cost.
To guard against fraudulent use of the benefit, Peller said a recipient's
Medicaid number will be recorded each time condoms are picked up, and
those numbers will be checked periodically by the state.
Police bomb squad blows
magic flaming book trick
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Paul Ridgeway's magic trick was a hit with
his audience, but it was a bomb as far as police were concerned.
Ridgeway used the trick during his address on "The Impact of Special
Events" before public relations people at a downtown hotel. He had been
invited by Tom Jardine, vice president of public relations.for the Carson
"The reason why Tom gives me a nice introduction is that I have this
dating book and it's really hot," Ridgeway told the group as he opened a
book and a flame magically shot out.
The group laughed and Ridgeway, a public relations consultant, fin-
ished his talk. But he left the book behind when he left the hotel.

A hotel employee called security guards when he opened the prop and
saw wires and batteries and hotel officials called the police bomb squad.
Sgt. Rick Nelson wrapped the book in a lead-lined blanket, drove it to
the bomb squad's disposal range and blew it apart with a high-pressure
water cannon.
