r When asked why Israel had
freed some Arab prisoners without
sword on the fates of all the miss-
ing soldiers, Lubrani said: "This
cannot be done in one shot and
therefore we take it step by step.
Whenever we have some progress
we will respond."
The 51 prisoners were freed
from Khiam jail in Israeli-con-
-rolled south Lebanon, run by Is-
xnael's allied militia, the South
,~banon Army.
The prisoners were handed over
┬░at the southern Lebanon village of
far Tibnit on the edge of Israel's
self-proclaimed security zone.
,' Twenty-nine of the freed pris-
,oners were taken by the Red Cross
-o the Lebanese army barracks in
-south Lebanon's market town of
Nabatiyeh. Reporters were told
that the other 22 freed prisoners,
including five women, remained in-
side the security zone because their
f milies live in that area.
"May God be praised. It's all

over now," said freed prisoner
Hussein Issa. "I want to see my
wife and three children."
Israel also returned the remains
of nine Shiite Muslim guerrillas
killed in clashes with Israeli
forces. At the Rosh Hanikra check-
point on the Israel-Lebanon border,
the bodies arrived in pine wood
coffins aboard three Israeli army
trucks.
Each coffin was carried by four
Israeli soldiers to the checkpoint,
on a cliff overlooking the Mediter-
ranean. The bodies were received by
members of the International
Committee of the Red Cross as-
sisted by members of the Lebanese
Red Cross. They were to be turned
over to the families for burial.
The Red Cross took the nine
bodies by ambulance from the bor-
der town of Naqoura to the south-
ern port city of Tyre, where they
were handed over to representa-
tives of Hezbollah.
Hezbollah sources in Tyre,
speaking on condition of
anonymity, said the bodies would
be taken to a mosque in southern
Beirut.

HAC
leads toer
thro ugh
downtown
by David Rheingold
Daily City Reporter
About 20 locals took a walking
tour of Ann Arbor last night, with
the Homeless Action Committee
(HAC) as their guide.
HAC members led the group to
10 sites throughout the downtown,
from the Ann Arbor 'Y' to the
Kline's parking lot, to show why
the city should build new housing
instead of supporting commercial
development.
At each stop, members deposited
cement-filled coffeepots with
wooden signs briefly detailing the
history of the location.
Many of the buildings they
pointed out were partly vacated.
HAC members were attempting to
show past development failures.
The nearly two-hour tour con-
cluded at the site of the proposed
Kline's parking structure, a project,
which the City Council killed plans
for earlier this summer. In its place,
the City voted to fund a less costly
surface parking lot.
This year, HAC member Laura.
Dresser said, the group will try to
persuade the city to use its leftover
money from the Kline's structure to
convert the former Ann Arbor Inn
and the Downtown Club into low-
income housing.
About two dozen Ann Arbor
residents said they followed the
tour mainly out of curiosity.
"I just wanted to find out
what's happening in terms of shel-
ter for low-income and homeless
people," said Jennifer Mead, a Rack-
ham graduate student.

Israeli soldiers carry the coffin of a Muslim guerilla at Rosh Hanikra yesterday: Nine bodies and 51 Lebanese
prisoners were released in exchange for definitive information on missing Israeli soldiers.

teria had been stolen.

lier without notice.
Employees and officers speculate
that the key was stolen by a South
Quad resident.
No suspects have been identified,
but investigations are continuing.

When the Cracker Barrel Restau-
rant managers open their new store
in Belleville, Mich., later this
month, they will also be opening a
new barrel of boycott in the Detroit
area.
Last January, the Cracker Barrel
Restaurant chain headquarters in
Lebanon, Tenn., issued an internal
memo that instructed store man-
agers to fire all homosexual em-
ployees.
The memo pointed to the restau-
rant customers' "family" values as
the basis for terminating all gay
male and lesbian workers.
Following the issuing of that di-
rective and the immediate dismissal
of 12 homosexual employees,
protests of the restaurant's loca-
tions in Georgia and Tennessee be-
gan.
Although no restaurants have
closed because of the protests, Ivy
Young, director of the Families
Projection at the National Gay and
Lesbian Task Force in New York
City, said yesterday that the pickets
have successfully stopped business
for days at time.
"At the last protest in
Nashville, protesters successfully

occupied 98 percent of the booths in
the restaurant," Woods said. "And I
just heard the other day that in
Joplin, Mo., the Ku Klux Klan has
planned a counterprotest in support
of the restaurant."
While most of the store's 109
restaurants are located in the South-
east portion of the country, Cracker
Barrel marketing employee Vivian
Atchley said yesterday that the
company has decided to open new
stores in the Midwest, beginning
with their 110th location in
Belleville, which is half way be-
tween Ann Arbor and Detroit.
Atchley, however, refused to
comment on the upcoming boycott
of the restaurant's grand opening on
Sept. 30, and referred all questions
to Chairman of the company Dan
Evins.
Evins did not return several
phone messages yesterday.
Last February, however, the
company did issue a statement re-
scinding the initial memo, stating
the directive "may have been a well-
intentioned over-reaction to the per-
ceived values of our customers."
"That just doesn't work for
me," said Ron Woods, coordinator
of the Detroit Cracker Barrel

Protest Coalition.
"I say so what?" he said. "What
about the 12 people whose lives
were ruined? What about the person
who was ostracized from their
small town outside of Nashville
and forced to relocate to Florida?"
Wood's coalition, and the satel-
lite Ann Arbor coalition that had a
small meeting in the Union yester-
day, are demanding that the restau-
rant rehire the 12 fired employees
with back wages, apology and full
former status, as well as at least
four other related requests, like the
implementation of a non-discrimi-.
nation policy.
