Call now Do you have Adrian Dant-ley's sneakers? Do you want the Pistons to win the National Basketball Association title? Then please, the Pistons ask, return Dantley's orthotic inserts immediately. You can keep the sneakers. No questions asked. Dantley's size 13Va New Balance sneakers were taken after Thursday night's Game 5 of the NBA final at the Silverdome. Dantley was born with one leg slightly shorter than the other, and he wears custom-made inserts in his sneakers to offset the problem. The inserts that were in the shoes taken Thursday are the only ones that fit him comfortably, and he'd like them back in time for the Pistons' potential title-clinching game Sunday against the Los Angeles Lakers. The Pistons ask that the person who took the shoes call publicist Matt Dobek or trainer Mike Abdenour at the LA Airport Marriott, 213-641-5700, as soon as possible, or send the inserts by overnight mail to Dobek or Abdenour at the hotel: 5855 W. Century Blvd., Los Angeles, Calif. 90045. A third option is to call Pistons offices at 338-4500 between 9 and 5, and Pistons officials will handle the arrangements. By Johnette Howard Vietnam vets get apology from Fonda Free Press Wire Services NEW YORK Jane Fonda, who was called Hanoi Jane after she visited North Vietnam in 1972 and posed for pictures operating a North Vietnamese anti-aircraft gun, has apologized to Vietnam veterans for any pain her actions may have caused them. In an interview for broadcast Friday on ABC-TV's "2020," Fonda said she "didn't want to be thought of as a starlet" at the time. She said that she regretted being photographed with the anti-aircraft gun, and saying former U.S. prisoners of war who said they were tortured by the North Vietnamese had bed. "My intentions were never to hurt them or make their situation worse. It was the contrary," she said. "I was trying to help end the killing and the war, but there were times when I was thoughtless and careless about it, and I am very sorry that I hurt them. I want to apologize to them and to their families." Fonda, 50, recently has been criticized by New England veterans who oppose her plan to film a movie in Connecticut and Massachusetts this summer. She requested the interview. She said she has not changed her view of the Vietnam war. "We are hoping this is going to be an occasion for healing for vets as well as the nation," said Michael Leaveck, a spokesman for the 38,000-member Vietnam Veterans of America. "We have always advocated that vets let go of hatred, whether it be for Jane Fonda, ; Henry Kissinger or Richard Nixon."

At least another 30,000 are expected to do the same today. "Everybody in Michigan loves to head-bang and rock 'n' roll," said one fan who identified himself as Bitz.

Young calk downtown too crowded BY DREW SHARP Free Press Sports Writer Citing pressure from downtown developers, Mayor Coleman Young announced Friday that the Grand Prix organizers have agreed to move the race to the western end of Belle Isle starting next year. Young said the move was necessary because real estate developers wanted to begin construction along portions of the current course. Young said the length of the agreement remains to be negotiated. "The Grand Prix has been an enormous success in downtown Detroit," Young said, "and its success, which has encouraged downtown development, is one of the reasons why the race now needs to be moved. We had developers demanding to develop. A decision had to be made."
