that affect students as members of a

any formal complaints, tenants re-

Residents on other floors reported

"It (the pressure) was messed up
at the beginning of the semester,"
said LSA sophomore Wendy Wal-
ters, who resides on the second floor.
"The temperature is good now, but
the pressure just drops."

Barrow closing to within eight per-

voters undecided. However, Barrow
was out of tow at the time and
seemed slow to capitalize on his
gains.
Young brought out his big guns
over the weekend anyway. appearing
at rallies with the Rev. Jess Jackson
and signer Aretha Franklin.
Barrow hammered away at
Young's leadership style and its re-
sults but was largely ignored when
he talked about the city's main is-
sues: crime, schools and creating
new jobs.
In declining to debate Barrow,
Young said his challenger had no
record on anything because he had
never held elected office. Young's
campaign theme, "The Right Stuff,"
focused on his 16 years of accom-
plishments in office.

Detroit mayoral candidate Tom Barrow ended up losing to Mayor
Coleman Young yesterday in a landslide vote. Early returns showed
Young breezing towards his fifth terms as Detroit mayor. With 15 percent
of the precincts reporting, Young led Barrow by a 57 to 43 perecent
margin. The nonpartisan race was a more competitive rematch of the
1985 campaign.

IN BRIEF
Compiled from Associated Press and staff reports
U.S. bishops fight abortion
BALTIMORE - The nation's Roman Catholic bishops yesterday said
no Catholic can responsibly take a pro-choice stand on abortion, and they
urged public officials to fight abortion.
The resolution was approved overwhelmingly on the second day of theĀ«
fall meeting of the National Conference of Catholic Bishops.
The 300 leaders of the nation's 53 million Roman Catholics also
elected Archbishop Daniel Pilarezyk of Cincinnati as president. Pilarczyk,
like his predecessor, Archbishop John May of St. Louis, is a social and,
theological moderate.
The resolution on abortion said Catholics should give "urgent atten-'
tion and priority" to the issue in the wake of a U.S. Supreme Court rul-
ing in July giving states more authority to regulate the procedure.
"No Catholic can responsibly take a 'pro-choice' stand when the:
'choice' involves the taking of innocent human life," the resolution said.
Member of Medellin drug
cartel sentenced to 15 years
DETROIT - A convicted member of the Medellin drug cartel, extra-
dited from Colombia to the United States last month, was sentenced to 15:
years in federal prison and fined $25,000 yesterday.
Bernardo Pelaez Roldan jumped a $200,000 bond and fled to his home-'
land following a 1983 indictment. In March 1984, he was convicted in
absentia in Detroit of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute 300:
kilograms - 660 pounds - of cocaine.
U.S. District Judge Ralph Freeman denied two defense motions to
postpone the sentencing.
Defense attorney Richard Lustig of Birmingham asked that Pelaez be
returned to Colombia because of improper extradition procedures, and that:
the time he has served in prison since his 1983 indictment be credited to:
his sentence.
"The defense motion for credit for time served is premature," Freeman
said, adding that such a motion must go to the Justice Department and not'
to the sentencing court.
Bush claims a successful
beginning for his presidency
Washington - President Bush, in an election-anniversary news con-
ference, claimed a successful start for his presidency yesterday and voiced:
hope that the return of $567 million in frozen assets to Iran will lead to:
freedom for American hostages in Lebanon.
"I carry the fate of the hostages with me every single day," Bush said.
He said he hoped the release of the Iranian funds would get "the under-
brush cleared out."
Separately, the State Department said that release of the money was,
not linked with the hostages in any way.
Expressing satisfaction with his record in international and national af-
fairs, Bush said he had seen the greatest surge towards democracy in at
least 40 years.
Bush brushed aside criticism - most recently from former President
Jimmy Carter - that he has responded too cautiously to changes sweep-
ing the Soviet Union, Poland, Hungary, East Germany and elsewhere in
Eastern Europe.
Suit claims car, bridge unsafe
TRAVERSE CITY - The family of a woman who died when her
subcompact Yugo plunged off the Mackinac Bridge is claiming in
lawsuits that the bridge and car are unsafe.
Leslie Pluhar of Royal Oak was driving across the bridge Sept. 22 in
blustery weather when her car careened over the side and plunged 170 feet
to the Mackinac Straits below. Her body and the car were recovered eight
days later.
A state police report issued Monday said Pluhar was speeding when;
her car veered off the bridge. The lawyer for Pluhar's estate claims the
car's instability in high winds and design flaws in the bridge caused the
accident.
Cady said he mailed suits Monday to the Michigan Court of Claims
against the state of Michigan, its Department of Transportation and the
Mackinac Bride Authority, and to Macomb County Circuit Court against
Yugo of America, Inc., the engineering firm that designed the bridge, and
the dealership that sold Pluhar her car.

Presley's digs to be dug

MEMPIS, Tenn. - One thing the people at Elvis Presley's house
never run short of is rumors, so they're putting out the word early that the
digging set to begin tonight at Graceland is nothing sinister.
Crews are resealing the basement wall, that's all, said Todd Morgan, a:
spokesman for the Presley residence and its souvenir center.
The three-story, white-columned home, called Graceland, draws
600,000 tourists a year. Rumors that Presley, who died 12 years ago, was
alive set off a flurry of reported Elvis sightings last year.
Whenever construction projects get under way at Graceland, the phones
start ringing, Morgan said. "The simplest of household chores at Grace-
land become international headlines," he said.
Morgan said work crews resealed the basement's back walls earlier this
year and now need to move around front where they easily will be seen
from Elvis Presley Boulevard.

PROPOSALS
Continued from Page 1
4 percent state sales tax to 4.5 per-
cent, putting $285 million into the
current public school funding for-
mula and setting aside another $115
million in grants that schools could
have applied for if they implemented
certain "quality programs."
Its main criticism from oppo-
nents was that it merely pumped

more money into a system which al-
ready has produced funding
inequities, and that schools already
ineligible for state aid wouldn't ben-
efit from any new money unless
they qualified for a slice of the qual-
ity money.
Proposal B would have raised the
sales tax to 6 cents on the dollar, but
also slashed property taxes by 38
percent for homeowners and 23 per-
cent for businesses. Every school
district would have received more

money than its current level with the
$350 million it would have gener-
ated for schools, but a state wide
millage pool would have allowed
poorer districts to share in growth by
richer districts. It also would have
capped taxes a school district can
levy on its residents.
Opponents of that plan say that
the property tax relief didn't consider
future increases in property value, a
factor in determining property tax
rates.
