Detroit R e c o r d e r's Court Judge Sue Borman said the middle or upper class woman is less likely to bring charges against her husband because of embarrassment. "She has the ability to get away from the man, too," Judge Borman saicl, "more economic ability." Uliss Eisenberg and 'Mrs, Micklow said most cases of wife beatings probably are not reported to police because of three factors—humiliation, fear of reprisal, and the stumbling .- "-, , = ,. —.""",*•• o reprsa, an e sumng by social prejudices and «rbi- block ^ ^ f along the trarv laws. Arrests and ronvic- «'"» 0 ""- irary laws. Arrests and convic tlons are rare, Two University of Michigan law students recently completed an extensive study on wife assaults. The results are statistically imperfect but the impact Is staggering. Sue Eisenberg, 2-1, and Pat Micklow, 37, both third-year law students, titled their research study "The Assaulted Wife: 'Catch 22' Revisited." "Wife beating is a misunderstood and tacitly accepted custom,' they wrote. "It is burdened by societal humor, thoughtless tolerance and arbitrary applications of the law. legal path. The woman index of women in the our "It is an devaluation of society." The pair said wife assaults are treated as a social problem, not n crime. Cases are buried in divorce, assault and homicide statistics, making it difficult to pinpoint the scope and frequency. Starting in April, 1973, the researchers interviewed 20 women in two Michigan counties who had been beaten by their husbands. They also talked to police officers, prosecutors, judges and emergency room doctors. Tlie victims, identified only by age and occupation, revealed a startling string of horror stories. "He used to kick me when I was down like a flog," one woman said "If my clothes were ripped during the fight, he would make me sit and sew them right after the beating." The wives ranged in ago from 19 to 35. The researchers admitted the sample was heavily weighted to persons in barriers wherever she goes, the police, courts, prosecutors, ' :ilrs. Micklow said. "There is an emphasis in this society on preserving the marriage at all costs." The researchers said they were convinced from interviews with police officials that most officers are trained to view wife-beating as a family problem, better handled by a social worker or counselor, and to avoid making arrests. Of the 20 women interviewed, 16 called the police. Officers responded with a house call in runs into n only one cas« was an arrest made. The victims insisted they did nothing to provoke the assaults, and most said when they tried o defend themselves, the beatings increased In Intensity. Miss Eisenberg and Mrs. Wcklow said there Is no way to estimate accurately how many vives are beaten by their lusbands, but offered these ndications: A 197-1 Detroit Police Department study showed 85 per cent of 144 assault complaints were ilccl by women, half of whom were married. A Wayne County assistant prosecutor said wife assault is one of the most frequent crimes ic encounters. The police chief of a small Washtenaw County town of 6,000 said family assault calls come in every day. A doctor at a Detroit hospital emergency room said he sees wife assault cases Reception Marks Exhibit Opening A-J Correspondent SN'YDER—A reception Saturday marks the opening of an art exhibit featuring paintings by Lois Duerkson Burney and Donna Davis Holt.

And 57 cases of alleged wife assault were reported to the Washtenaw County sheriff's department during a five-month period In 1974, accounting for almost half of all assault and battery complaints. "I could name you three or four addresses where every weekend, year after year, we'll have calls on family disturbances, on a family fight," Detective Lt. Harold Owings said. "The husband...automatically beats up his wife everyttme he gets drunk." The majority o£ wife assaults occur during certain peak periods of the week, the researchers said, especially on Friday nights, late Sunday afternoons and Sunday nights. The most common form of attack, the study showed, is with the fists. But most often head and (he face, Some wives aid their husbands "always went for the face first" in a desire to humiliate them. Seven victims interviewed said their husbands inflicted blows to the abdomenai areas during pregnancy, Injuries included four women with miscarriages, four had concussions, one woman had her hair , ripped out, one suffered a fractured jaw, and one sustained cracked ribs. Miss Eisenberg and Mrs. Micklow said those wives who lecided to take legal action against their husbands were -rapped in a shuttle between the criminal and civil courts— the "Catch 22" situation. If tlie woman requests an assault and battery warrant, ;hey said, she must prove to the prosecuting attorney that she is a worthy victim. The researchers said most prosecutors want proof the woman is filing for divorce before they will issue a warrant. But when the woman arrives in court, judges often fall to punish the husband In the hope that reconciliation will occur, they said. Miss Eisenberg and Mrs. Micklow pointed to the need for the legal system to recognize a crime, protection as well as long term solutions. the assailant also resorted to across the the stairs, burning or kicking, throwing room or down slapping, choking, smothering. The "more Innovative weapons used" Included a broom, leather belt, brush, plllcw, hot iron, lighted cigarettes and a piece of railroad track.
