A Detroit City firefighter sprays water on a house fire on Benson Street on the east side of Detroit early
yesterday morning as suspicious fires flared across the city during the annual Halloween arson spree known
as Devil's Night. At least five families were left homeless. Meanwhile, more than 300 juveniles spent their night
in jail rather than their homes for violating curfew laws.

BEIJING (AP) - Richard Nixon
told Deng Xiaoping yesterday that
some Chinese leaders had lost re-
spect in the United States, and Deng
accused Washington of involvement
in the democracy movement that
China's army crushed in June.
China's 85-year-old senior leader
told the former president that "China
had not done one single thing harm-
ful to the United Sates" in the past
decade, according to Xinhua, the of-
ficial Chinese news agency.
A member of the Nixon party
who attended the meeting between
Deng and the American leader who
opened the door to China in 1972
characterized their conversation as a
"a very tough, no-holds-barred ex-
Nixon told Deng he had observed
relations closely for 17 years and
"there has never been a more difficult
crisis than at the present time."
"He said it was important to dis-
cuss differences and "repair the dam-
age that has been done to the respect
in the United States among China's
friends for some of China's leaders."
He did not identify those leaders.
Deng, Premier Li Peng and President
Yang Shangkun have been singled
out for ordering the June attack on
pro-democracy demonstrators in
which hundreds, perhaps thousands,
of people were killed.
According to Xinhua, Deng said
the United States "was involved too
deeply in the turmoil and counter-
revolutionary rebellion," the gov-
ernment's terms for the democracy
"Chinawas the real victim, and it
is unjust to reprove China for it." he
Deng and Nixon, who was on the
fourth day of a private visit, agreed
that ideological differences should be
overcome and relations improved on
the basis of common strategic inter-

DETROIT (AP) - Firefighters
scrambled from blaze to blaze and
police locked up 300 juveniles who
ignored a temporary curfew as
Devil's Night in Detroit nearly re-
peated its violent history.
Dozens of blazes flared across the
city in trash bins and abandoned
buildings, and at least five families'
homes burned Monday night. There
were no injuries.
Last year, there were 229 Devil's
Night blazes and so far this year, the
number is higher, City Councilper-
son Mel Ravitz said yesterday.
"We've got to find a way to ei-
ther re-educate or incarcerate those
who engage in this sport," he said.
Since the 6 p.m.-to-6 a.m. cur-
few for minors began Sunday, at
least 334 youths have been arrested,
police Sgt. Christopher Buck said.
The arrests included four for investi-
gation of arson. Police are allowed
to detain children under 18 overnight
if they are caught on the streets
without a parent.
Police and firefighters refused to
release a count of blazes blamed on
youths who take part in the Devil's
Night tradition, which turned from
such pranks as soaping windows to
arson about 10 years ago. Mayor
Coleman Young's office is to release
fire totals today.
The blazes apparently peaked in
1984, when firefighters battled 808
fires during the last three days of Oc-
tober. The number of fires has de-
clined steadily since them.
Penny Thomas blamed Devil's
Night revelers for the blaze that
flared in an abandoned house next
door and destroyed her Detroit home.
"The house just went to burning
in the front and me and my friends,
we ran out of the house," Thomas
said. "The fire kept burning and the
fire truck hadn't got here yet."
Fire Capt. Amos Horton said ar-
sonists destroyed Benny Braxton's
house before dawn yesterday.

'U' Student wins billiard

A University student cued her
way to being named Big Ten bil-
liards champion last weekend at a
tournament at Iowa State University.
Betsy Sundholm, an LSA
sophomore, returned to Ann Arbor
with a shiny trophy. She began
playing pool at agel3. She learned
the skill while spending time in the
only bar in her hometown of Arnold,

The tournament took place on the
Iowa State campus and was repre-

teams: Iowa State University, Uni-

Illinois, Purdue University and the
University of Michigan.
