Winters last Tuesday when Davis arrived
at his ex-wife's home to drop off a car.
"My brother stopped him before he
could come in the house and told him
to urn over the keys and don't come
Ack," Malik Winters told the Free
Press. Davis threw car keys toward the
Ouse before getting into a friend's car.
"He said something to my brother -
sontething like, 'Be a man. We can han-
dle this right now' - and it got my
brother provoked," Malik Winters said.
.Malik Winters told the Free Press he
called his brother to the house that
night after hearing Davis would be
coming over.
Jessie Jordan, Davis' sister, told the
Free Press on Sunday that the relation-
ship between Davis and Winters' moth-
r was "amicable" after their uncontest-
ed divorce four years ago.
'But Earthy Winters charged that
Davis "... has in the past threatened
(Earthy Winters) with serious bodily
injiry (and) that (Davis') actions
towards (her) is threatening severe and
irreparable injury (and) that ... (he) did
thwaten to kill (her), according to
'Wayne County divorce court papers.
. Jordan told the Free Press her broth-
i 'underwent surgery for six hours to
epair a massive blood clot in his head
'cabsed by severe blows.
-Davis was listed yesterday in critical
but stable condition in Grace Hospital's
Intensive Care Unit. He has been at the
Dtroit hospital since Nov. 12.
When Davis is discharged, he might
face more jail time for a parole viola-
tion, said Michigan Department of
Corrections spokesperson Gail Light.
.The department issued a warrant for
his arrest Nov. 8 when Davis stopped
eporting to his parole officer Oct. 28,
Light said. 4
"He would go to one of our institu-
tins, and he would have a parole revo-
cation hearing to decide whether to
revoke his parole and put him in
prison," Light said. "Not showing up
for parole is a serious offense'."
Davis has been in and out of the
Michigan prison system since 1976 after
corhfmitting armed robbery and break-
n{g and entering, prison records state.
While in prison for two drug viola-
tions, Davis escaped from the Brooks
Co-rectional Facility on July 20, 1992,
in Muskegon. He was captured in
February 1993 and received an addition-
al two- to five-year sentence for the
prison escape. He was paroled Dec. 15,
1995.

CLOSING

owner of both businesses, was unavailable for comment.
Student reaction to the reports was one of shock, although
some had suspected the poor health conditions for a while.
LSA sophomore Eric Lee said he had heard rumors of the
poor sanitary conditions.
"It was scary," Lee said in response to the details. "They
didn't look like dirty places."
Paula Habib, an LSA first-year stu-
dent, visited NAC regularly and was " It wi
unaware of the report's findings.
"I went there once every few weeks," d d
Habib said. "I like it a lot - it was T
somewhere everyone could go."lke
"It doesn't make me feel good," l e i
Habib said. "I always have the fear that
whenever I'm eating at a restaurant or
cafeteria it's not clean, but to think that it
barely passed the test is kind of scary."
But LSA junior An-Soo Chang, who
liked eating at Salad Days, did not think the scores were so
bad and was not very concerned.
"I never got sick. I didn't have any problems with (Salad
Days)" Chang said. "I'm a very satisfied customer. Very sat-
isfied." Chang added, "I've (eaten) at worse places. If I don't
get sick and I like the food I'd probably go there."
Laura Harley, an LSA first-year student, appreciated that
NAC tried to offer the community a different type of business
with a unique atmosphere but was concerned with the results
of the inspections.
"It definitely bothers me," Harley said.
Harley added that government agencies don't always do
enough to maintain health regulations.
"I used to work in a fast-food place. They'd clean up the

m
s'

place the day before (the inspection)," Harlcy said. "(The gov-
ernment officials) try. Their guidelines are very good but
unless you have frequent inspections they don't really work."
The health reports and closures came during proceedings
by NAC's management to buy Mitch's Place, located directly
above NAC on South University.
"The NAC approached Mitch to buy Mitch's Place," said
Jody Thompson, general manager of Mitch's Place.
"We did not run (Mitch's Place) during June, July, August
and September. It was being run by
people from the NAC," Thompson
said.
scary. John Whitmore, a member of the
staff at Mitch's Place, said that
Mitch's philosophy is "if it's not
plce going to be run properly, it's not
' e * going to be run at all."
- Erin Lee "Whatever happened bad in that
SA sophomore period of time, Mitch had nothing to
do with it," Whitmore said.
Thompson noted that cleanliness
is something Mitch's Place takes
pride in, but added that the NAC inspection results were not
important in the deal that eventually fell through.
"(The reports) didn't play a role in the decision,"
Thompson said.
NAC and Salad Days were originally co-founded by Scott
Severance, who received an engineering degree in 1991 and
a master's in business administration in 1993 from the
University, and decided to stay in Ann Arbor to pursue his
business ideas.
"This is probably where we know the most about the
market and the people," Severance told The Michigan
Daily in an unrelated interview conducted in November
1995. Severance said, "It's a good environment to test out
a lot of ideas."

LANSING (AP) - House Speaker-
elect Curtis Hertel said yesterday that
reports claiming he does not live in his
district are false.
The reports have been spread by a few
members of the Detroit firefighter and
police officer unions angered by Hertel's
opposition to a bill that would lift
Detroit's residency requirement for city
workers, the Detroit Democrat said.
Hertel, currently the House minority
leader, takes over as speaker in January.
WXYZ-TV in Southfield reported
last week that Hertel does not live in the
2nd district in northeast Detroit that he
represents in the Legislature. Instead,
the station reported, he lives in another
Detroit neighborhood nearby.

Hertel disputed that this week in
Lansing.
"My residence is in the district. I live
there;" he said.
The television station's report was
based in part on various records and
listings that give different Detroit
addresses for Hertel - one for a home
in his district and one for a home just
outside its boundaries.
The lawmaker said he owns both
houses. He lives in the one inside the
2nd district, while his family lives at the
other address, he said.
"Sometimes I live here (in Lansing).
Sometimes I live at my residence. And
sometimes I live with my family"
Hertel said.

TESTING

Goldfarb agreed.
"I never specifically look for students
for studies," he said. "I see no advan-
tages or disadvantages to using a stu-
dent rather than someone else"
He said students usually become sub-
jects in his studies simply because they
are a segment of the population that has
a condition that he treats - acne.
But while Pharmacy Prof. Sally
Guthrie said she does not specifically
target students, she pointed out that
using students can have its advantages.
"Students are actually fairly good to
study because, for the most part, stu-
dents are fairly intelligent (so they
understand the research)," she said. "I
really prefer to actually have people
who understand what I'm doing"
Guthrie, who usually tests drug inter-
actions, said that when subjects have an
understanding of the purpose of the
study, they are more likely to trust the
researcher.
Researchers said student participa-
tion in studies varies. Goldfarb, who

usually tests medications for skin con-
ditions, said students volunteer for his
studies "pretty frequently" Schmaier,
who uses students to donate blood for
his research on plasma proteins and
platelets, said student participation is at
about 20-30 percent.
Besides participating in medical
studies, students also act as volunteers
in studies conducted by the psychology
department. As part of the requirement
for introductory psychology courses,
students are given the option of partici-
pating in five hders' worth of studies or
writing a paper.
Brian DeSmet, an LSA sophomore,
said he participated in a study that test-
ed how well students knew general-
knowledge questions and how certain
they were that their answers were cor-
rect. These results were then compared
to those of students in other countries.
"I guess it was to measure almost
how cocky students were from each
country," he said. "Doing the actual
experiment wasn't too bad."
LSA sophomore Mark Bieszki said
he liked participating as a research sub-
ject.

"I thought it was interesting to see
how they conduct the research "he said.
He also said the researchers
debriefed the students well to make
sure they understood the intent of the
study. "I got something out of it. It's
not just like I was doing it blindly,"
he said.
LSA sophomore Steven Munger,
though, said he did not enjoy his expe-
rience.
"I think a lot of the experiments we
do are crazy. They're unreasonable,"
Munger said.
Prof. James Hilton, undergraduate
chair of psychology, said exposing stu-
dents to research techniques is one of
the reasons for including the research
subject requirement in introductory
psychology courses.
"Most students come into an intro-
ductory psychology course believing
that psychology is a nonscientific
discipline concerned exclusively with
helping," Hilton said. "While psy-
chology's mission to help is impor-
tant, an equally important side of
psychology is the side devoted to the-
ory and research."
