COURT
Continued from page 1.
The victim testified that upon
briefly examining herself in her apart-
ment bathroom she discovered alight-
colored hair in the vicinity of herpubic
hair that she considered "foreign."
The dark-haired woman testified
that the hair did not resemble her
own, herboyfriend's or-whenasked
by the defense--Mitchell's hair type.
The student also said she could
not identify the car model, or the
number, race or gender of any passen-
gers. She said the book bag and purse
she carried that night were not taken.
As with the other rape victims,
Lankford asked the student whether
she had been stalked in the days be-
fore the attack, to which she said no.
The witness, unlike the second

and the third rape victims to testify,
could not provide police with any
description of her assailant. In fact,
she testified she was initially unaware
she had been sexually assaulted.
University Hospitals emergency
physician Dr. Brian Zink, who at-
tended to the victim the day after the
rape, testified about the manner of
attack based on the woman's injuries.
"She had a large bruise two to
three inches on the left side of her
skull," Zink said. "I don't think a fist
alone could have done that. I think an
object was used."
Lankford questioned several wit-
nesses about the collection of DNA
evidence from the victims and from
Mitchell. He attempted to determine
when and where each sample was
collected, and who had access to them.
Ann Arbor Police Detective Tho-

mas Pressley also took the stand, and
said he accompanied a paramedic to the
Washtenaw County Jail on Dec. 26,
1994 and, armed with a search warrant,
intended to take two vials of blood and
some hair samples from Mitchell.
"After I handed the search warrant
to Mr. Mitchell, he looked at it for 10
to 15 minutes," Pressley testified. "He
said I would have to physically throw
him down to the floor before he would
give me a sample of his blood."
Pressley said he had to call three
other law enforcement officers to the
jail, before Mitchell settled down and
blood and hair samples could be taken.
The detective also testified that he
and other police officers conducted a
search of Mitchell's mother's house
in Inkster, Mich., on Jan. 11 after
obtaining a search warrant. They also
searched a vehicle located on the pre-
mises with his mother's consent, even
though she said it did not belong to her.
The preliminary examination will
continue tomorrow at 9 a.m. before
15th District CourtJudge Ann Mattson,
when the prosecution will presentDNA
evidence.

your care," Rogers said.
Cook said, "I think this is a center
that belongs to everybody." She said
she was concerned with offering a
comfortable and inviting atmosphere
to compensate for the sterile appear-
ance of the hospitals.
Tim Johnson, chair of University
Hospitals' Obstetrics-Gynecology
Department, said one of the program's
objectives is to make the Medical
Center appear less intimidating and
more facilitory.
Representatives at the health cen-
ter can give help with referrals to
visitors without other resources. They
can also direct people who have addi-
tional questions or complaints, he
added.
Johnson said women have been
neglected in terms of their health care
for years and he hopes the program
will help women to see themselves as
participants in the care they receive.
"In an era of primary health care
we've got to reach out to the commu-
nity if we want it to work," he said.
Cook is currently conducting an
assessment of the Ann Arbor area to
build the center's information about
organizations specializing in matters
such as housing options, family plan-
ning and domestic violence to help
visitors with additional concerns.

Senate rejects ban on regulations
WASHINGTON - The Senate yesterday scuttled a House-approved
moratorium on new government regulations, clearing the way for approval
today of a narrower bill that would give Congress powers to block regulations
before they take effect.
The Senate's action signaled an emphatic rejection of House Republicans'
sledgehammer approach to what they regard as excessive government regula-*
tions - a crusade they have mounted with the help of lobbyists for some of the
biggest regulated industries in the country.
By opting for a congressional review of new rules rather than a freeze in rule-
making, the Senate has chosen a more moderate course that is likely to bring it into
conflict with the House when conferees meet to resolve the major differences.
The House would block issuance of most major new regulations until the
end of the year or until a broader bill to curb unnecessary regulations is passed.
By contrast, the Senate would put most new regulations on hold for 45 days to
give Congress time to review and possibly overturn them.
The Senate yesterday night agreed by voice vote to substitute the congres-
sional review for the moratorium, leaving only a formal vote on final action for
today.

Court to decide if cops
to knock before search
WASHINGTON-Yesterday the
Supreme Court debated whether a
long-held tradition of the law - that
police have to knock and identify
themselves before executing a search
warrant - is required by the Fourth
Amendment's prohibition of unrea-
sonable searches and seizures.
Last year in Boston, a police
SWAT team looking for drugs and
guns broke into the apartment of a 75-
year-old minister, chased him into a
bedroom and handcuffed him.
They soon discovered they had the
wrong man, apartment and floor, but it
was too late forhim. TheRev. Accelynne
Williams had died of a heart attack.
The spread of drugsand the inven-
tion of the indoor toilet that can be used
to disposeof them, has persuaded some
states to institute a blanket exception
to the rule in all drug cases.
Most states already require that
officers knock and identify themselves.

Lost Russian satellites
hinder space program
MOSCOW - In a setback to
Russia's fledgling commercial space
program, Israeli and Mexican satel-
lites launched yesterday aboard a con-
verted Russian military rocket have
gone astray and are presumed lost, a
Russian official confirmed.
"It looks as if something went
wrong with the fifth stage, and the
rocket never reached orbit," said
Vyacheslav A. Mikhailichenko,
spokesman for the Military Space
Forces. "Our ground stations cannot
find it in space. There is no hope and
the satellites are lost."
He said the loss was "not a trag-
edy," because the launch had been
billed as a test and the missing Israeli
satellite was insured. But Russian mili-
tary officials had hoped a successful
launch would help them attract other
paying customers, earning desperately
needed cash from converted nuclear
missile-launching technology.
The Russian rocket was made out
of two obsolete SS-25 intercontinen-
tal ballistic missiles, known by the
Russian name "Topol" (orpoplar tree).
The two Topols were converted into
a five-stage rocket and three communi-
cations satellites - Israeli, Mexican

N.Y. state senator
proposes 187-like bill

,

ALBANY, N.Y. - Invoking the
"spirit of California's Proposition
187," a New York state senator pro-
posed legislation yesterday that would
ban funding health, education and
welfare services for undocumented
immigrants.
State Sen. Frank Padavan, a Re-@
publican from Queens, introduced a
series of bills modeled on the referen-
dum Californians adopted last year
denying public services to illegal im-
migrants. The California law is now
under review by the courts.
"These bills aim to deal with the
economic and social impact of illegal
aliens on our society ... where they
are enormously costly," Padavan said..
and Russian -were fitted into its nose,
which once carried nuclear warheads
aimed at the United States. Itwas only
the second launch of such a rocket.
Police search sect's
complex for bodies
TOKYO - After finding materi-
als that led them to suspect a Japanese
religious sectmay have produced nerve
gas and biological toxins, authorities
yesterday turned to the grisly possibil-
ity that the group may have buried an
undetermined number of bodies at its
rural complex and conducted bizarre
medical treatments on its members.
No bodies were immediately found
at the complex of the Aum Supreme
Truth cult, the group that has been
linked to the deadly March 20 subway
nerve gas attack that killed 10 and
afflicted nearly 5,500 commuters.
But hundreds of police swept the
rural area, investigating reports by
former followers of the secretive sect
who have said they saw corpses being
buried there.
"Aum Supreme Truth has nothing
to do with religion and it won't be
long before we start finding bodies,"
a police officer predicted to reporters
on the scene at Kamikuishiki village.
- From Daily wire services

in the middle-of-the-road approach ad-
vocated by the Justice Department,
which said that police can execute a
search warrant without knocking if they
can establish a "reasonable basis" for
doing so, such as "danger to the officers
or the destruction of evidence."
