Buyours
Continued from page 1
Brewer argues that the contract
buyouts have cost Michigan taxpayers
approximately $2 million. Moeller, who
resigned May 4, will receive $388,026
for the final 2 1/2 years of his contract,
while Perles was given a base salary of
$148,179 for each of the three years left
on his contract.
"It's truly unbelievable - Perles is
the best paid non-working guy I can think
of," Brewer said. "I plan tobring this up in
the form of a reduction in appropriations."
Officials at both the University and
Michigan State, however, argue that ath-
letic departments do not use university
money, and instead operate entirely from
revenue.
"His point is interesting, but the Ath-
letic Department does not receive any
taxpayer dollars. It runs on its own in-
come," Peterson said.

Brewer argued that the Athletic De-
partment is not completely independent.
"That's a very patronizing and sim-
plified response, to the point where it's
close to being deceptive. The facilities
are paid for by tax dollars. That state-
ment just doesn't wash," Brewer said.
Other representatives, however, are
backing the universities and accusing
Brewer of twisting the facts.
"Saying it was a waste of taxpayer
dollars is wrong, and he just doesn't have
his facts," Profit said. "Moeller was a
high-profile figure, and now here's a leg-
islator that's able to capture some of that
high profile."
Schroer said that although she does
not support the idea of a buyout,
Brewer's facts are inaccurate.
"He is focused on athletic buyouts,
and even though I don't appreciate the
buyout, that money is actually athletic
department revenue," she said. "By with-
holding appropriations, you'd only hurt
the students."

SHOOTING
Continued from page 1
old Brian Taylor on July 9. Sixteen-year-
old Ann Arbor resident Tamara Stewart
was killed in a shooting on the night of
July 29 in southeastem Ann Arbor. Police
have linked both incidents to gang activ-
ity.
Police said that Stewart was an inno-
cent bystander in what they have charac-
terized a gang shootout, involving mem-
bers of Ann Arbor's West Side Gang and
the West Willow Crips of Ypsilanti
Township.
Five open murder warrants have
been issued in the case, and police have
apprehended four of the five suspects.
Emilio Vasquez, 20, William Taylor, 21,
William Wells, 16, and Joseph Olive, 20,
are currently in custody. Olive turned
himself in to the Washtenaw County Jail
at 3:30 on Monday morning. Deondre
Byrd, 20, is still at large.

The Washtenaw County
Prosecutor's Office has decided to
charge Wells as an adult, said First As-
sistant Prosecutor Steve Hiller. In mur-
der cases prosecutors have the discretion
to charge minors 15 years of age or older
as adults, Hiller said.
Preliminary examinations in the case
are set for Aug. 16, said Sgt. Phil Scheel
of the Ann Arbor Police Department.
Profit said yesterday that he had been
working on the new initiatives before last
month's shootings, but expressed con-
cern over the latest incidents. He said
that on Monday he met with the
governor's office to discuss the recent
developments and "to develop new strat-
egies to address the specific problems we
have in this area."
Profit said he is pleased with the coop-
eration he has received fromthe govemor's
office, but also said that he does not expect
immediate results from the new initiatives,
and stressed that "a steady, comprehensive
effort" is necessary.

"You undertake an effort over a pe-
riod of time and hope to see results.
These problems didn't develop in the
past six months," he said.
At last week's citizens' meeting
residents voiced a number of com-
plaints about police behavior, and
some accused police of slow response
time on the night of the shooting, and
complained about what they consid-
ered the use of unnecessary force in
securing the crime scene.
Ann Arbor Chief of Police Carl
Ent said last week that the AAPD
would issue a written apology to
Verlie Stewart, the victim's father4
Stewart was tackled by police as he
tried to reach the crime scene, and
several of his family members were
sprayed with mace as they stood over
the body.
An official from the AAPD said
that the apology had not yet been is-
sued, but is expected to be released
later this week.

called "White Flash, Black Rain:
Women of Japan Relive the Bomb," ed-
ited and translated by Lequita Vance-
Watkins and Mariko Aratani, an Ann
Arbor resident.
The book is a collection of poems and
narratives of bomb survivors and sections
read by Yoshi Campell were interpreted
through the medium of dance by Noonie
Anderson, Ayako Kato and Diana Rupp.
"It was moving and fresh to have that
kind of movement with what I was read-
ing," Campell said.
The evening ended with a combined
group of six bell choirs performing
"Dona Nobis Pacem," and children
launching lantern boats they had made

during the adult program.
ICPJ was formed in 1975 in oppoA
tion to the Vietnam War and has grown
into an organization to work on issues of
peace and justice. ICPJ is holdinga vigil
to commemorate Nagasaki. today at the
Federal Building.
"I think it ranks right up there with the
worst atrocities of WWII, not as a single
attack, but as a representative of the whole
years worth of killing that we did," said
history Prof. Thomas Collier.
Due to the lack of students over tl
sunmmer, University groups were unable
to hold commemorative events.
'(University students) don't under-
stand the full impact of the war and what
it means to us, 'said David Chen, a Busi-
ness senior and the former president o
