YOUR BIRTHDAY March 25,1976 New friends and contacts are likely to enter your life this coming year through a new involvement. You may also become very close to someone who is quite idealistic. DETROIT — (LENS) — After dark, downtown Detroit is as dead as the 800 or so people murdered in the city . each year. Saddened by this, 51 white businessmen led by Henry Ford have come together to bring it back to life. Their plan has its first big test this summer. Then the first of four 39-story octagonal office towers that will squat around a 70-story hotel will be ready for tenants. These five buildings, to be finished by 1977, arc* the core of a $500 million development of 33 acres that is planned for the business district.'They replace rundown warehouses, docks and railway yards along the Detroit River. Called the Renaissance Center, the development plagiarizes from the successful Peachtree Center that revived Atlanta and the partially successful golden triangle development in Pittsburgh. Ford, chief executive of the Ford Motor Company, thought up the idea after his company was scolded, especially when 43 people were killed in the Detroit race riots of 1967, for concentrating its investment outside the city in the suburb of Dearborn. He got the 50 businessmen to come in as partners by persuading their companies to contribute an equity investment of about $100 million. Another $200 million has been raised, mainly from insurance companies, as a long-term mortgage loan. Wayne Doran, president of Ford Motor La n d Development Corporation, has the task of letting offices in the Renaissance Center. Tenants are hard to find. Detroit is now typecast as Murder City, USA and the nervousness of business visitors is confirmed when they encounter such security precautions as the listening devices and television monitors General Motors has installed in the elevators at its headquarters to deter criminals. To reassure prospective tenants that the danger is exaggerated Doran has prepared gaily colored display charts that purport to show that although 29,169 people were murdered, raped, mugged, assaulted or otherwise physically ill-used in Detroit in 1974, only 851 of these crimes occurred in the inner business district. The comparison is misleading. Visitors to the city are cautioned by hotel porters not to venture into the streets after 9 p.m. People living in the Detroit suburbs drive four hours to Toronto'for a weekend on the town rather than risk going into their own city. The consequence is that so few people now walk about at night in the business district that the criminal classes have a shortage of potentfal victims. Nevertheless the city's cheerleaders claim with conviction that though Detroit has earned its reputation as a rough city, it has at least' stopped getting rougher. They sav the flight to the suburbs has ceased and as many people now come to live in Detroit as leave. Also, with an even split between blacks and whites, the city has a better racial balance than others in the United States. Coleman Young, the folksy, black bachelor who two years ago became the first black mayor of Detroit, is glummer. The recovery in the motor industry, the dominant employer, is tugging Detroit's unemployment dowivfrom last year's 22 per cent but the city is still squeezed hard in the fiscal vice of swelling expenditures on a shrinking Times Herald, Carroll, la. •* Wednesday, March 24, 1976 I tax base. Now lobbying for more help from the federal government in Washington and the Michigan state government in Lansing, Young wrote in a guest column in the Detroit News on February 25: "For many readers the words 'urban crisis' sound like a classroom subject ... in Detroit it means shutting down afternoon and evening recreation programs for young people in school gyms, closing down consumer assistance programs and stripping personnel from departments that destroy rats, or capture vicious dogs, or help elderly people, or plant trees."
