sible. We all know what happened
with, 'Read my lips."'
Abraham said he would pledge to
never raise taxes. "It's people like
Bob Carr who have been down in
Washington raising taxes," he said.
Abraham also pointed out how much
money taxpayers send to Washing-
ton. "In 1950, $1 for every $50 went
toward taxes. Today, it's $1 for every
$4," he said.
Carr also claimed he would work
to take the "pork out of projects." He
said he would not cut Social Security
or Medicare, but would target other
entitlements. "We've got to protect
the individual," Carr said.
Abraham contested Carr's claims,
saying that in last year's $500 billion
budget deficit reduction package that
Carr supported, there was a 56-per-
cent cut in programs Carr said he
would not cut.
On more personal issues, includ-
ing the negative campaigning that has
at times soiled the race, both Carr and

Abraham went on the offensive.
Abraham defended a campaign ad
that asserted that Carr would receive
a $2 million pension upon retiring
from Congress. Though the ad was
changed last week omitting the $2
million claim, Abraham said, "I've
run a campaign that's very issue-ori-
ented. One of the issues in this cam-
paign is Bob Carr's record."
Carr called the claims false, and
said he would have to live to be 111
years old to receive the $2 million
pension. He said he will receive
$18,000 a year.
"It raises the issue of integrity in
this campaign. Mr. Abraham is prone
to back-room, dirty politics.... He
finally made a mistake and over-
reached in a factually inaccurate way
and he admitted it," Carr said.
During much of the debate, Carr
and Abraham spoke at the same time,
sometimes over the panel of journal-
ists at the debate held at WXYZ-TV
(Channel 7) in Southfield, in an effort
to drive home campaign themes.
Snide remarks came from both
candidates, with Carr at one moment

the veto power. Sheldon last summer

review of the city's Materials Recov-
ery Facility, and earlier this month on

Democrats now hold a 7-4 major-
ity on City Council. Under a worst-
case scenario for the party, they would
lose the 3rd Ward and 5th Ward, giv-
ing the majority to the GOP. But such
a scenario is unlikely.
telling Abraham: "I'm getting a little
sick of you talking about things that
aren't so."
When Carr was outlining his posi-
tion on tax trends and spending cuts,
Abraham remarked, "Here we go with
the history lesson."
Last night's debate marked the
final chance for the two candidates to
discuss issues together before next
Tuesday's election. Both will be criss-
crossing the state this week-includ-
ing making stops in Ann Arbor - as
they head for the finish line.
- The Associated Press contributed
to this report.

Both wards traditionally vote
Democratic, and Democratic chal-
lenger Stephen Hartwell stands a fair
chance of winning the 4th Ward from
Republican Julie Creal.
Hartwell projects himself as a mod-
erate Democrat, in the mold of 4th
Ward Councilmember Peter Nicolas.
His opponent, Kathryn Renken, op-
posed Nicolas last year for his seat in
the most bitterly fought campaign for
council. The race between Renken and
Hartwell is more subdued, although
both parties have a heavy stake in the
Incumbent Democrat Tobi Hanna-
Davies - arguably the most liberal
memberof City Council -will likely
carry the 1st Ward over independent
challenger Andrew Wright, an LSA
Incumbent Republican Jane
Lumm, who faces no Democratic op-
position in the 2nd Ward, will likely
win for second term.
That leaves the 3rd Ward as the
linchpin race. The nominally
Democratic ward has often played
the wild card in Ann Arbor poli-
tics, and neither major-party can-
didate holds a substantial edge in
this year's race.

eventually helped find the boy's killer.
Weiser called the latest increase
in reward funding "something that
had to be done."
"We checked with the task force
to find out whether they thought it
would be helpful or would it be a
hindrance. They said that they felt
that a reward of that size could be very
helpful," Weiser said.
Other pledges were initially made
by the Ann Arbor Apartment Asso-
ciation, Domino's Pizza Inc., the
News and the Neighbors of Eberwhite
Woods ---acity park where one of the
rapist's victims was attacked.
The suspect is described as a Black
male with a light complexion, ap-
proximately six feet tall, about 170
pounds, between 25 and 35 years old,
with short hair and a ponytail or tuft
of hair at the back of his neck.
He was last seen wearing a short-
sleeved, light purple "polo-type" knit

"It's just a matter of getting together
with the right people."
He mentioned the issue of whether
the University or the city will pay for
the Fuller Road expansion as one ex-
ample of a problem that could be
resolved without any great difficulty.
Hanna-Davies agrees that the City
Council needs to work with the right

The task force has to date received@
more than 900 tips, 200 of which were
a result of the latest assault. The tips
have led the team to investigate more
than 500 potential suspects, 210 of
whom have been cleared.
Task-force members have also
begun canvassing the area where the
attacks occurred to see if new infor-
mation about the serial rapist can be
discovered. Also, they are informing*
citizens in those areas of their ef-
Weiser's concern for his commu-
nity also sparked his involvement.
"I don't know if you've everexpe-
rienced fear, it's not a very pleasant
feeling," Weiser said. "A lotof women
in this community are experiencing it
now. That'snot something they should
have to go through."

have been strongly critical of the or-
dinance. The regents' ordinance has
bogged down the prosecutor's office
with minor infractions, critics claim.
"We deal with a broad spectrum
of problems. The most serious being
rapes and murder, the least being
things covered in the U-M ordinance.
We have a very limited staff here. The
more time we have to deal with serious
crime, the happier we are," Burke said.
The prosecutor's office is compelled
to investigate all misdemeanor charges.
In addition to making the offenses
civil infractions, the proposal also
would create new regulations.
The proposal would make posses-
sion or consumption of alcohol in the
Arboretum a civil offense. "That
change is being made based on rec-
ommendations from the School of
Natural Resources, which manages
the Arboretum," Baker said.
The change also would prohibit
unauthorized people from entering
the playing field of any athletic event
at the University while the event is in
progress or for a reasonable time be-
fore and after.
In addition, the proposal would
require animals broughton campus to
be leashed and held by the person
responsible for them. Exceptions to
this include animals used for handi-
cap assistance purposes or Univer-
sity-sponsored research.
Representatives from the
University's General Counsel Office,
Department of Public Safety and
School of Natural Resources and the
Environment drafted the changes.
The University will post changes
for public review today in the Univer-
sity Record and tomorrow in The
Michigan Daily.,
Suggested changes will be pro-

posed to the Campus Safety and Se-
curity Advisory Committee, which
will review the proposal. Executive
Vice President and Chief Financial
Officer Farris W. Womack will for--
ward the proposal to the regents.
"One of our objectives is to have
this out long enough so people can
comment," Baker said.
Over the summer, two editors o4
the University's Gargoyle magazine
were charged by DPS with selling
baci issues of the magazine on the
Diag during Hash Bash in violation of
the regents' ordinance.
But the editors had been encour-
aged by David Friedo, Student Publi-
cations manager and a University
employee, to sell the magazines to
raise money for the magazine.
The Board for Student Publica-
tions - a University oversight board
- oversees the finances of the Daily,
the Gargoyle and the Michiganensian
The case went to court May 24,
but before the trial began, Judge Timo-
thy Connors granted Burke's motion
to dismiss the case.
At the time, DPS Associate Direc-,
tor Robert Pifer said he was unaware.
of the regents' bylaw that gives au-
thority to the Board for Student Pub-
lications. And Friedo said he was
unaware of the existence of regula-
tions over the sale of student publica-
Michigan Student Assembly Presi-
dent Julie Neenan, a member of the
Campus Safety and Security Advi-
sory Committee, said she feels the*
new penalties are more reasonable,
but does not like the hike in parking
Neenan said she does not think the
lower penalties will increase these
offenses. "I don't think it's going to
have much of an effect on behavior.
It's just going to change the conse-
quences," she said.
