"One of the most powerful ways
to fight a human is to drop to the
floor and kick at them," Williams
said. "When you go to the floor,
you're actually more powerful."
Workshop organizer Julia
Karolle believed the workshop
helped the women who attended.
"Last year there were 100 sex-

alone," she said. "It's an issue that
has to be confronted."

Hart's attorneys said the police
chief would arrange for a tem-
porary suspension while he fights
the charges.
"You can't have the chief of
police indicted for such serious
crimes and not have the depart-
ment in disarray," said City Coun-
cilmember Keith Butler. "He
should resign."
The alleged theft of $2.6 mil-
lion from the fund, which paid out
about $10 million over the past
decade, points to the need for
more checks on the power of the
mayor and his department heads,

an official said. .
"We may well have a fight
over this," said City Council Pres-
ident Maryann Mahaffey. She said
the council has been frustrated for
years by Young and Hart's refusal
to account for use of the secret
fund.
"It's the tragic result of what
happens when you have such a
fund and little, or in this case, no
accountability," said Wayne
County Prosecutor John O'Hair.

Graduate School of
Architecture, Planning,
and Preservation

Introduction to
Architecture:
The Summer Studio
at Columbia University
New York
A summer program giving university credit which intro-
duces the student to all aspects of the design, history, theo-
ry, and practice of architecture. The program is intended
both for those without previous academic experience in
design who are interested in architecture as a potential
career, and for those with previous experience in architec-
tural design who would like to develop studio design skills,
perhaps in preparation for application to graduate school.
Studio, seminar, and lectures present a comprehensive
introduction to every aspect of architecture as it is
practiced today. In addition, through field-trips and
tours, the student learns from extraordinary examples
of architectural and urban design in New York City, the
world's preeminent center for architecture and culture.
