Estranged
husband
attacks wife
on N. Campus
Martin Taylor, an Ann Arbor
resident, faced a charge of felonious
assault, yesterday, after police
reported he threatened his wife with a
butcher knife at her North Campus
residence.
Police said officers were called to
the 1900 block of MacIntyre Dr. to
find Taylor's wife screaming her
husband had a knife. The officers
entered the apartment where Taylor
had threatened his wife's male friend
with the knife.
Because he resisted arrest, Taylor
had to be disarmed at gunpoint,
police added.

ered his eyes, the youth allegedly
struck him in the face and fled.
Police said the second incident
occurred an hour later in an elevator
of the Liberty Square parking struc-
ture on E. Washington St.
Another 20-year-old man told po-
lice that he and a companion were
confronted by a group of youths, one
of whom sprayed him in the eyes
with a water pistol containing a
chemical and knocked off his
glasses.
Police said the liquid used was
most likely mace, which causes a
burning sensation but no permanent
eye damage.
The police have a description of
the assailant and are looking for sus-
pects.
Two students

he was wearing on his arm.
The student told police when he
fell to the ground, the youths began
to punch and kick him repeatedly.
The student was taken to the
University hospital and treated for
facial wounds, police added.
Another University student told
police he was assaulted by what po-
lice say was the same group a short
time later on the 900 block of S.
State St. The student told police he
was also struck repeatedly but did
not go to the University hospital for
treatment.
Ann Arbor Staff Sergeant
Thomas Caldwell said the youth
with the cast was arrested and
charged with felonious assault.
Youth points
gun at teens
in Briarwood
Ann Arbor police arrested a local
youth who allegedly threatened a
group of teenagers with a loaded
handgun at the Briarwood Mall Sun-
day.
Police said the suspect pulled a
.25 caliber handgun from his jacket,
cocked it, and waved it at a group of
teenagers claiming they were tres-
passing on "his territory."
Briarwood security guards located
the suspect, who had fled after the
incident, in another part of the mall,
police said.
After striking one of the security
guards, police said the suspect was
subdued and held for the police.
Ann Arbor Staff Sergeant
Thomas Caldwell said there was
some doubt as to whether the vic-
tims will press charges. If so, Cald-
well added, the suspect will be
charged with felonious assault, carry-
ing a concealed weapon, and assault-
ing a security officer.

'U' releases evaluation
of operating procedure

by Noelle Vance
Daily Administration Reporter
The first evaluation of a three-
year-old retreat program created to
study and improve University pro-
grams has been released as part of a
self-study the University is submit-
ting to the North Central Associa-
tion of Colleges and Schools - the
organization which accredits the
University.
The study, a two volume docu-
ment, organized by Marilyn Knepp,
director of the Office of Academic
Planning and Analysis, is a report
on the University's operating proce-
dures.
Included with data on areas such
as University enrollment, admis-
sions standards, and degree candidates
is an evaluation of a retreat program
which brings department deans,
chairs and administrators together to
discuss the University's "strategic
planning" for the future.
The retreat program was devel-
oped in 1986 by University Presi-
dent James Duderstadt, then the Uni-
versity's Provost. The program, ac-
cording to the report, was designed
to help administrators, faculty and
staff study challenges that would
confront the University in the next
century.
Retreats were scheduled to occur
once every three years beginning in
1987. Today, 30 of the University's
18 colleges, 13 research offices, and

11 administration offices have partic-
ipated in retreats. The 12 remaining
offices are scheduled to hold retreats
this year.
According to the study, partici-
pants were dissatisfied with the lack
of feedback given by the administra-
tion to faculty and staff about their
concerns.
"Feedback actually was a disap-
pointment in that we were hoping
that there would be outcomes by
now, and there haven't been any,"
said one person from the department
designated unit U. The actual names
of each unit were not disclosed in the
report.
"If you get people going, you
should have a clear notion of where
you want to go, where you want to
push it, and how you are going to
help it along, otherwise it's an exer-
cise, and there's a lot of that in life,"
a participant from Unit N com-
mented.
The same person asked what the-
point of strategic planning is if the
University can't provide the re-
sources to carry through the partici-
pants' recommendations.
According to the report, however,
several deans and directors said they
appreciated the chance to "take a
broader view of their units."
"We've never really grappled, un-
til this process started, with where
we would be a few years down the
road and how we were going to get

there," said a participant from Unit
H. "I'd much rather think about
scholarly kinds of things, but I'm
convinced that we had to do this, and
it's been to our benefit to do it."
The report noted that one of the
early expectations for the retreats
which "seemed fine on paper but not
so easy in practice" was the idea of
linking resource allocations to the
retreats.
Administrators hoped the retreats
would give people in the budget pro-
cess a better idea of individual de-
partments' needs.
"In fact, the direct linkage is still
difficult to implement and the diffi-
culty -has been compounded by
changes in leadership," the report
says.
The report states several partici-
pants expressed concerns that there
wasn't enough documentation of the
retreats.
Though data tables, white papers
and prepared responses to agenda
questions were organized into a
"retreat notebook," participants
feared the spirit and content of the
discussions could be lost "with the
normal turnover in academic posi-
tions" because the minutes of the
meetings were thoroughly edited.

Two local men were sprayed in
the face with an unidentified chemi-
cal in separate incidents on Sunday,
Ann Arbor police reported. Police
did not know whether or not the men
were University students.
The first alleged assault took
puace at 7 p.m. on the 300 block of
M aynard St. The 20-year-old victim
told police he was sprayed in the
eyes by a youth accompanied by a
group of friends. When the man cov-

Ann Arbor police have arrested a
local youth for separately assaulting
two University students on Monday.
The first victim reported he was
walking alone on the 800 block of
S. State St. at around 10 p.m. when
a group of youths bumped into him.
After a short dispute, one of the
youths allegedly struck the student
in the face with a large plaster cast

Court backs indefinite

sentence in
WASHINGTON, D.C. (AP) -
The Supreme Court ruled yesterday
that parents suspected of child abuse
sometimes may be jailed indefinitely
for refusing to disclose the where-
abouts of their children.
Voting 7-2, the justices permitted
the indefinite jailing of a Maryland
woman for refusing to tell the au-
thorities where her young son can be
found. The boy is feared dead.
Society's interest in protecting
the boy from harm prevails over the
mother's claim that her right to self-
incrimination will be violated if she
is forced to reveal the child's loca-
tion, the court said.
Although narrowly written, the
ruling could provide a new weapon
for officials seeking to protect chil-

dren from parental abuse.
In the case of the jailed Maryland
mother, Jacqueline Bouknight has
been behind bars since April 1988
for refusing to disclose the where-
abouts of her son, Maurice. The boy
has been missing since September
1987 when he was 11 months old.
Maurice was admitted to a Balti-
more hospital in early 1987, when he
was 3 months old, for treatment of a
broken leg and other injuries. He
was temporarily held in protective
care.
