PROPERTY TO BE DEVELOPED

S. University to get shopping mall

BY DAVID SCHWARTZ
In addition to campus stores and the Briarwood
mall, next year students will have another
location to do their shopping - a three-story
mall on South University Avenue.
By next May, the huge hole on South U.
where the Campus Theater used to be will be
.transformed into a new $5.3 million mall, called
the South University Galleria.
Developer Glen Ross Gale says the mall,
which is currently 40 percent leased, will meet
many student needs. "We're looking for tenants
from all over the nation to really enhance the
shopping mix on South U.," he said.
But the outlook for the mall is varied. The
owners of two stores on South U. near the mall
site expressed skepticism because of a story
which ran in the Ann Arbor Observer in 1986,
.which examined many lawsuits in which Gale

was involved.
According to the article, Gale had been
involved in over 50 lawsuits, including some
which were still pending at the time the article
ran. Most were between Gale and his tenants.
Gale attributes his many legal battles to
typical landlord-tenant relationships, and said the
controversy "has absolutely nothing to do with
the success of the South University Galleria."
In addition to Gale's many disputes with
tenants, the Galleria is being built in the
aftermath of Tally Hall - now called Liberty
Place - another recently built shopping mall.
The Tally Hall project has been unsuccessful,
by most accounts, failing to draw in the projected
shoppers.
Martin Overhiser, director of Ann Arbor's
Planning Commission, said it is not the city's
responsibility to monitor properties.

"The city does not get into deciding what kind
of uses go into the building," he said.
Despite the skepticism surrounding the
project, some South U. merchants are hopeful
that the Galleria will provide increased business
for their stores.
"I think any business will help our business,"
said Cynthia Shevel, the owner of Middle Earth,
located directly across the street from the mall
site.
Denise Dimson, an LSA junior who works
for Gale, said she is forming a group of students
who will serve to provide student input for the
mall. Dimson said Gale is "trying to get the
stores that the students will want on campus."
In addition to providing new stores for
students, the Galleria will serve as a passageway
between South University and the Forest St.
parking structure.

The bill is presently in the
Colleges and Universities

Committee of the Michigan State
House and is awaiting deliberation
and a possible hearing. Rep. Burton
Leland (D-Detroit), chair of the
committee, said he has not yet had
the time to determine when the bill
will be discussed or what its chances
of passage are.
The bill faces two potential
obstacles, one of which is the issue

of independence.
University Regent Deane Baker
(R-Ann Arbor) said conflicts arising
between roommates over the
questions of smoking, alcohol, and
drug use are handled adequately by
the Housing department.
"The bill is antinfringement on
the autonomy of the University,"
Baker said.

Another obstacle is the question
of privacy. Rep. Perry Bullard (D-
Ann Arbor) said the bill may
threaten students' privacy since they
have to indicate on the application
form their attitudes about substance
use.
But University Housing Director
LeRoy Williams said he sees no
problem with Honigman's bill.

IN BRIEF
Compiled from Associated Press and staff reports
Mich. OKs center in Japan
LANSING- Students at Michigan's 15 public universities will be
able to use the Japan Center for Michigan Universities to study language
and culture in Shiga, Japan due to an agreement signed by Gov. James
Blanchard and his counterpart Gov. Minoru Inaba yesterday.
"It will promote Japanese students' and citizens' understanding of the
English language, provide workshops and seminars for Japanese and
American professionals and will promote research by faculty and students
from Michigan in Japan," said the state's superintendent of public
schools.
Blanchard noted the increasing need for familiarity with Japanese
society because of the business growth in Michigan. He said more than
200 Japanese-owned companies have located in Michigan, creating more
than 18,000 jobs and investing more than $2 million in new facilities.
JOA merger blocked by court
WASHINGTON - A federal appeals court yesterday extended
indefinitely a stay blocking the partial merger of Detroit's two daily
newspapers, saying opponents had raised "a serious legal question" about
the deal.
The U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals also scheduled an Oct. 28 hearing
on the challenge to the partial merger of the Detroit Free Press and the
Detroit News under a joint operating agreement approved last month by
then-Attorney General Edwin Meese.
Opponents of the deal, which would create the largest joint operating
agreement in the country, argue that the two dailies are losing money
only because they have engaged in a nine-year-old price-cutting war to put
each other out of business. Therefore, they contend, the newspapers do
not qualify for an antitrust exemption under the Newspaper Preservation
Act of 1970.
Minority SAT scores rise;
nation's average declines
NEW YORK - Average SAT scores lost ground in 1988 for the first
time in eight years, but minority students continued a decade-long pattern
of impressive gains, the College Board reported yesterday.
Scores on the verbal section of the Scholastic Aptitude Test fell two
points to an average 428, while the average on the math section was
unchanged at 476, according to the board's annual report.
Minority students in the class of '88, especially Blacks, posted the
strongest gains. In addition, the number of Black test takers rose 39
percent in three years, said the board's research director.
Ironically, the release of the SAT averages coincided with the planned
departure Tuesday of the U.S. Education Secretary William Bennett, who
had credited the Reagan administration with spurring reforms which until
this year had helped produce gradually improving SAT scores.
Tornadoes damage S. Texas
SAN ANTONIO, Texas (AP) - Tornadoes spawned by Hurricane
Gilbert caused more than $35 million damage in this .inland southern
Texas city, apparently worse than coastal cities that faced the main storm,
officials said yesterday. .
Two people were killed in the 41 tornadoes that leap-frogged across the
state. Heavy rain swelled rivers in some areas, but no injuries were
reported.
Gov. Bill Clements was to tour the tornado-ravaged areas of San
Antonio on Monday after viewing damage in Brownsvilled on the
southern tip of Texas, which felt part of the hurricane's wind and waves.
"I think all of us feel a sense of relief that we are blessed that there is
no more damage in Texas and more particularly here in Cameron County
than you have experienced," Clements said after flying over waterfront
areas at Brownsville.
EXTRAS
Horses spook wedding
VIRGINIA CITY, Nev. (AP) - Sometimes love reins, especially
when a couple in their finest Western duds exchanges marriage vows
while sitting atop their horses in "Bonanza" country.
Carol Clifford,47, and B.D. Lapham,46, said they decided to tie the
knot on horseback Saturday evening in this town near Ben Cartwright's
Ponderosa ranch on the old "Bonanza" TV series because of their love of
horses.
With more than 150 guests watching from hay bales, the couple said
their "I do's" in front of a hitching post. But before they could kiss, the
crowd's clapping spooked the horses, causing them to gallop up a hill.
The couple later walked back in with the horses.
They originally planned to have a small wedding. "But then I said
'Let's get married on the horses' and friends started asking if they could

come to the ceremony," Lapham said.
Like their ceremony, their invitations were unusual. They were
designed like an old wanted poster and a friend shot bullets through all of
them.
They met earlier thie year when Clifford, a Reno newspaper and
classified ad supervisor, was out walking. She met Lapham outside the
Cowboys and Indians saloon he manages, putting out his flags.
She stopped and said, "Oh, you have nice flags," and the romance
blossomed from there.
