Iraq was still conquering."
Sharova said Russians felt that
the United States took the right po-
sition and were very impressed by
the organization of the U.S. mili-
tary. "It was a great test for Soviet-
American relations and the overall
reaction in Russia was very posi-
Sharova said she greatly enjoys

being in the United States. She also
says that because she knows English
she does not really feel like she is in
a foreign country. However, she
points out that there are some dis-
tinct differences - like the com-
puter system here at the University
and the number of product brands to
choose from.
Sharova said she's observed that
everyone is always smiling and is
very polite. "It's a very nice thing
which people sometimes forget. On

the streets of Russia, people are too
tired to smile and be polite."
As the tumultuous events of the
Soviet Union continue to unravel,
the future of Russia remains uncer-
tain. Sharova's great hope is "to see
the 10 newly independent republics
come together and form a very civi-
lized union of independent states -
much like the United States."
In the process, she added,
"community with the United States
is the only way."

always going to be the argument of
the group in charge. If you had asked
me that question nine months ago, I
think I would have had the same re-
sponse, and I guess as the minority
party, we do have to be a little
Much of the Republicans' criti-
cism of the Democrats has focused
on their swiftness in dealing with
matters such as the Kline's garage.
"I think they want to take the
lumps early and get them behind
them, hoping that voters will for-
get about the Laidlaw fiasco and the

waste of money on the Kline's lot
before the election rolls around,"
said Councilmember Kirk Dodge
(R-2nd Ward).
But Councilmember Nelson
Meade (D-3rd Ward), who served on
the council from 1971-73 and re-
turned in 1989, said the Democrats
have kept a firm agenda because pre-
vious administrations failed to re-
solve issues in a timely manner.
"In one instance in the past,
when the Democrats had a majority,
people wondered, 'What happened?
Why didn't they do anything?' If
you have an agenda, you should take
decisive action on it," Meade said.
Members of both parties say
they agree on most things, and try

not to let the controversial issues
interfere with their personal
"I think only about 5 percent of
the issues we disagree on are parti-
san in nature, and I think the joint
partisan caucus will be good because
we'll be able to iron out those dif-
ferences and jointly problem
solve," Hunter said.
But Dodge was more skeptical of
the meeting.
"I hope it's an open session, but
frankly, unless we see some open
discussion of the Democrats' long-
term agenda, it's hard to believe it's
going to be anything more than
window dressing," he said.

While it is not clear exactly how
many people lived in the house, resi-
dent and first-year MBA candidate
Anne Lynch said that there were
"eight or nine apartments, and most
of them are singles."
Hasley speculated that not all
areas of the house necessarily suf-
fered fire damage.
"There is a possibility there's
just water damage (to some areas),"
Hasley told Lisa Becks, also a resi-
dent of the house.
Becks said that she was "on the
phone when the smoke started pour-
ing into my apartment."
"The whole apartment filled
with smoke and the smoke detector
was going off for at least an hour,"
she said.
Lynch said, "I didn't hear my fire
alarm. People threw rocks against
my window to tell me to get out.
You always think 'What would you
do if there was a fire? What would
you take?' I didn't think, I just
threw on my coat."
Tom Clark, the house's owner
since 1974, was visibly shaken.
"The house was the former Delta
Upsilon from the 1880s," he said.
He added that he had just completed
significant renovations in the house,
and that the house was completely
occupied since he took possession.
The crowd of onlookers re-
mained outside for hours.
Lynch said, "There's people
watching. I've watched fires before
and it's kind of fun. But when it
happens to you, it's different."

Ann Arbor Police Officer Phil Lavigne and a friend try to comfort tenant
Lisa Becks (right) last night as she watches firefighters try to save her
house. At the onset of the fire, Lavigne told Becks, "There's probably
more smoke damage than fire damage." However, the firefighters could
not control the blaze, and the flames eventually ascended from the
basement through the walls and to the roof of the house.

student I.D.s," he said.
And while it seems that the po-
lice have been especially hard on fra-
ternities on campus, both Hartwig
and Sgt. Debra Cio stress that police
are also cracking down on private
house and apartment parties.
"We will respond anywhere we
receive a noise complaint, hear loud
music or just see a large group of
people in the house or around the
house. Less than half of the citations
that we issued last week were issued
to fraternities," Cio said.
Response to a large mustering of
people is what brought police to the
corner of South University and
Church Streets last Saturday morn-
When they arrived at the scene,
about 300 people were milling
around and drinking. The crowd con-
tinued to grow and spill into the
street. By 1:30 a.m., almost 2,000
people had gathered.
Glenn Higgins, an LSA senior,
said, "People were just outside. It
was like a pep rally."
Hartwig said at that point the
crowd became violent and began

pelting police officers and police
vehicles with rocks and bottles.
"The officers were on the scene
solely to keep students out of the
street. We were not taking any ac-
tion until the crowd became violent.
We told them verbally to disperso
- both through megaphones and
over the cars' P.A. system. When&
they refused to move, we used tear
gas to try to disperse the crowd," he
Higgins felt the police were un-
justified in their use of tear gas.
Police say they are trying to de-
crease the availability of alcohol on
campus mostly to prevent intoxi-
cated people from causing damage to
others and to property - not to
stop all University students frome
having fun.
"We are concerned about drunk
students being out on the street. It's
like there is a puddle and at the edge
of the puddle are the students driv-
ing drunk and damaging property
and causing harm to others. We can
mop up the edges of the puddle by
doing things like getting drunk stu-
dents before they get in their cars,
but if we stop the flow at the hose
- or the open parties with free
beer- eventually the puddle will
be gone," Hartwig said.
