The Ohio comes to Washington
The first of the nuclear-powered Trident
class submarines, the USS Ohio, churns
through the waters of Puget Sound toward
its new base (right). Protesting the arrival
were Mike Masterson (below) and other
members of an anti-Trident blockade. The
U.S. Coast Guard turned away the
blockade yesterday using water cannons

During the trial, Waterman
challenged the jury selection process,
saying that blacks were not represen-
ted proportionately in the origional pool
of prospective jurors. He made two ad-
ditional mistrial motions, claiming a
court-ordered lie detector test violated
Kelly's rights and prejudiced jurors
against his client.
"Leo Kelly is a product of his en-
vironment, as we all are, and the
racism on the U of M campus Leo had to
deal with caused this tragedy," said
Richard Garland, another committee
organizer. "The University is just as
responsible as Leo Kelly."
"THE QUESTION that has to be
asked is did Leo Kelly pull the trigger."
Graves said, "No one denies that."

trigger is institutional racism at the

Kelly faces two consecutive life sen-
tences for conviction on two counts of
first degree murder. Washtenaw Coun-
ty Circuit Court Judge Ross Campbell
is expected to deliver the sentence at 9
a.m. today at the Washtenaw County

"The University of Michigan should be
put on trial and not Leo.Kelly."
Garland said discrimination, both in
the trial and at the University, was
responsible for "the injustice of the
whole Kelly situation."
"THE COMMITTEE feels that Leo
Kelly has not received a fair trial in as
much as there is 30 percent black
representation in Washtenaw County
and he (Kelly) was tried by an all-white
jury," he explained.
According to Garland, the verdict
was unfair "in terms of the Hinckley
trial, in which the verdict was vastly
different." Hinckley was tried by a
predominantly black jury.
Graves said the committee is com-

bail Michigan out of its financial
troubles, $100 million may still have to
be cut from programs to balance the
budget, as required by state law.
"THE PROBLEMS have -been
growing in the last few days," Preston
said yesterday. "Some of it will have to
be (resolved) with an executive order."
If further budget cuts are necessary,
higher education would be targeted for
cuts because it is one of the few areas in
which the state has not yet spent its

The lack of state support has been
blamed for various problems at the
University, including a lack of a faculty
and staff salary program, the recent 15
percent tuition hike, and the delay by
administrators in forming a budget for
this fiscal year, which began July 1.
In a recent statement to the Regents,
University President Harold Shapiro
said, "We cannot allow this
deterioration to continue or we shall see
higher education crumble.'.
