said. Because Friday was a union
holiday, the parking garage on May-

Clark said Van Boven probably
lost a little business on Saturday due
to the fact that U-M students were
out of town, but the impact was not
Gilpin said the absence of stu-
dents had no impact on her business.
However, Steve Angerman of
State Street Sports said business was
slow this weekend.
He attributed this to the absence
of students in Ann Arbor.
"They can't buy when they're in
New York," Angerman added.
"We draw from a much larger
community," said Murphy of Bor-
ders, adding that having students in
town would have been good for
business, but their absence had no

the mall he went to in Dearborn on
Wednesday was also quite busy.
"It was hellacious to find parking
at (Ann Arbor's) Briarwood," LSA

Medalle, who works at The Gap
at Briarwood, said that business was
very heavy between noon and 4
p.m., but seemed to taper off after
that, even though the mall was open
until 9 p.m.
"It was busy in spurts," said LSA

who also works at The Gap. "After 6

BONN, Germany (AP) -
Pressing a bid to crack down on
right-wing extremists, federal au-
thorities said yesterday they have ar-
rested a 19-year-old youth on suspi-
cion of murder in the firebombing
deaths of a Turkish woman and two
The chief federal prosecutor,
Alexander von Stahl, said at least
one other person was being sought in
the attack that shocked the nation a
The firebombing of the women's
home in Moelln, near Hamburg, was
the most brutal of nearly 1,800 right-
ist attacks that have killed 16 people
It triggered an international out-
cry over resurgent Nazism in
Germany and apparently spurred the
government to step up actions
against extremists in an effort to de-
flect criticism that violence is esca-
lating out of control.
Despite a parade of promises
from Chancellor Helmut Kohl and
other officials to crush right-wing
violence, young thugs staged a series
of attacks on foreigners over the
weekend. Rightists blame an influx
of foreigners for Germany's strug-
gling economy, particularly the de-
pression that has gripped eastern re-
gions since reunification.
A statement from Stahl said the
19-year-old, identified only as Lars
C., was detained Saturday and for-
mally arrested Sunday on suspicion
of murder, attempted murder and
breach of the peace in connection
with the arson attack in his home-
town of Moelln. Formal charges had
not been filed.
Stahl's office in Karlsruhe said
that a witness reported seeing the
suspect at the scene, but that the
teen-ager denied involvement.
The suspect's full name was not
released because he is a minor under
The prosecutor said another per-
son, whose identity had not been de-
termined, was being sought in thi
Last week, Stahl's office detained
Michael Peters, leader of a radical
rightist group, and eight followers
for possible involvement in three ar-
son attacks in northern Germany in
September. No one was injured in
Two more suspected members of
the group were detained over the
weekend in connection with th*
September attacks, the office said
Prosecutors had said they would
investigate whether Peters' group
was involved in the Moelln deaths,
but the office said yesterday that no
evidence had been turned up to link
any of the 11 to that attack.
President Richard von
Weizsaecker and Foreign Ministe
Klaus Kinkel met in Bonn yesterday
with a delegation from Turkey to
discuss the Moelln firebombing.
Reacting to an Israeli Cabinet
statement Sunday denouncing
German racist violence and anti-
Semitism, Kohl's spokesperson,
Dieter Vogel, said the government
understood the concern in Israel. He
said the violence was the work of
"individual extreme groups" that dO
not reflect the German majority.
On Friday, the Interior Ministry
banned a neo-Nazi group called the
Nationalistic Front on the grounds
its members were seeking to subvert
Germany's constitutional order.
Interior Minister Rudolf Seiters
was reported to be deciding if four
other groups could be banned. He
also was studying the possibility of
stripping neo-Nazi leaders of certai6
rights, such as voting, running for
public office and expressing opin-
ions in public, newspapers said.

"We have Friday night dinners.

sition of executive director of the
Miller estimated that the search

mately $150,000, though he said it is
"hard to predict a very accurate
As the director of the search,
Miller must coordinate a committee
of two students, two faculty mem-
bers, one graduate, one college dean
and one non-academic faculty mem-
ber by January in order to meet the
September deadline set by interim
president Gordon Guyer. Guyer will
not seek the permanent post.
Miller stressed the importance of
diversity on the committee.
"You want a lot of diversity on
the committee to create a balance of
interests, and to ensure that the con-
cerns of the community are ad-
dressed," Miller said.
"The committee must make a ju-
dicious decision on these selections,"
Miller added. 0
Members of the group will be se-
lected from nominations by campus
organizations. Up to three people
can vie for each committee position.
Miller said the committee nor-
mally makes recommendations for
candidates, but leaves the final deci-
sion for the Board of Trustees.
"The standard scenario is that the
committee recommends three final
ists, the board reviews these recomv
mendations and makes the final deci-
sion," Miller said.

ident who can guide MSU through

times for Michigan universities,"
