Army gives crast
WASHINGTON (AP) -- The
Army has released the names of the
three U.S. soldiers killed when the
military helicopter they were flying
crashed in Panama.
Two men were identified by the
Pentagon: Warrant Officer Brian L.
Madrid of Bessemer, Pa. and Chief
Warrant Officer Steven K. Cornick
of Santa Cruz, Calif.
At Fort Ord, Calif. officials
identified the third man as SSgt.
Timothy E. McDaniel of Anchorage,
Alaska.
The two officers were members of
the 123rd Aviation Battalion of the
7th Infantry Division based at Ford
Ord, and McDaniel was a member of
the Army's Combat Pictorial Detach-
ment at Fort Meade, Md., officials
said.

Cruise ship
OSLO, Norway (UPI) - A Soviet
cruise liner carrying nearly 1,000

rescued from the grounded vessel,
authorities said.

While travelling through Howard
Sunday morning supposedly enroute
to the village of Veracruz, occupants
of a caravan of five large buses and
press cars were observed by Security
Police taking photos of the base from
the moving vehicles.
The caravan was led by pro-regime
Arraijan legislator Rigoberto
Paredes in his private automobile,
with a Panama Defense Forces
captain who later identified himself
as the security escort for the group.

An investigation into the cause of
the crash was under way,said a Pentagon
spokeswoman, Maj. Kathy Wood.
The cause of the crash appeared to be
a mechanical failure, she said, and
U.S. officials earlier had ruled out
the possibility that the helicopter was
fired upon.
The helicopter, an OH-58 small
observation craft, crashed near the
Trans-Isthmian Highway as it was
flying a mission for a military convoy
traveling from Fort Clayton, on the
Pacific side of the Canal, to Fort
Sherman, on the Atlantic.
The battalion was among troops

elections and post-election violence
in which three opposition candidates
were beaten.

While the road that bisects
Howard is open to the general public
under provisions of the Panama
Canal Treaty, deviation from that
road and taking photographs while,
on base without prior coordination is
prohibited, as clearly stated in
English and Spanish by signs along
the road and at the front gate.
The caravan was stopped inside
the back gate for a brief period to
ascertain the identity of the
occupants and authorization for
taking photos.
After disembarking the buses, the
occupants began to gather around
Paredes who reportedly tried to
agitate the group with such chants as
"one country, one flag" and became
argumentative with the Security
Police.
Minutes, later the caravan was
allowed to proceed out the back gate
where it turned around to re-enter
the base.
The caravan then proceeded back
through Howard with security police
escort without further incident.
In a separate but apparently
related incident, four Brazilian
journalists were detained about noon
Sunday at Howard for an hour after
they were observed taking
photographs as they drove through
the base.
When stopped inside the back gate
by Security Police, they refused to
show any identification, but said they
were delegates to the Parliamentarian
conference.
They were taken to the Security
Police station at Howard where their
film was confiscated.
After showing their press
credentials, their film was returned
intact. They were then released
without charges to the Panama
Defense Forces liaison at the same
station.

the talks are stagnating then the
opposition is most probably
adopting a stubborn attitude,"
Pereira said in a television interview.
Pereira said he thinks a military
junta might be established to rule
Panama if the political parties do not
agree by Sept. 1.
A proposal "isn't feasible if it
humiliates the country or the armed
forces, ... we must keep our honor
intact above all else, and reject all
outside interference," Pereira said.
Guillermo Endara, former
presidential candidate of the Civil
Democratic Opposition Alliance,
known by its Spanish acronym
ADOC, told Panamanian business-
men Friday that the opposition has
informed the OAS negotiating team
about its willingness to give a greater
role to pro-military politicians in
negotiations.
Earlier, the opposition insisted on
direct talks only with Noriega to
negotiate his ouster. Political
observers said the change in the
opposition's stance would make it
difficult for Noriega to refuse direct
talks with opposition leaders.

Holding company purchases Northwest Airlines


ST. PAUL, Minn. (UPI) - A
holding company headed by Los
Angeles businessman Alfred A.
Checchi and including KLM Royal
Dutch Airlines agreed Monday to
purchase Northwest Airlines for $4
billion.
The deal between the airline's
parent company, NWA Inc., and
Wings Holdings Inc. is worth $121
per share. NWA stock, which closed
Friday at $107.625, up 12 1/2 cents
on the New York Stock Exchange,
was up $6.50 at $114.125 in early
trading Monday and was the fifth
most active NYSE stock. When the
bidding started more than two
months ago, NWA stock traded in
the mid-$60 range.
The move by Checchi, who
initially purchased 4.9 percent of the
stock, is far better than one made
March 30 by oil and entertainment
mogul Marvin Davis, whose $90-a-
share, $2.7 billion bid set off a flurry
of interested buyers, including Pan
Am Corp. and the machinists union.
Northwest Chairman Steve
Rothmeier said earlier that the
Checchi group, which includes Gary
Wilson, a former member of the
NWA board, was considered a
"friendly" bidder who could be
expected to keep the airline on its
present course.
Checchi said he will keep the
airline based in Minnesota and retain
all current hubs.
Wings has received commitments
for $700 million of equity as part of
its financing arrangements. The
remaining $3.35 billion of the
financing is expected to be provided
by a syndicate of commercial banks
led by Bankers Trust Co., the


statement said.
Bankers Trust has provided Wings
with a commitment to lend $500
million and is highly confident it will
be able to syndicate the remainder.
The financing does not include any
subordinated debt.
Checchi said the $700 million in
equity to be invested in the
transaction "demonstrates our
commitment to a responsible capital
structure that will insure that NWA
will continue as a financially sound,
growing entity able to meet all of its
responsibilities and obligations to its
employees, customers, equipment
suppliers and the communities that it
serves."
He said the business plan is
designed to strengthen the airline and
said the group looks forward to
working with with labor and
management to improve NWA's
competitive position in the 1990s.
Equity investors in Wings include
Checchi and his associates; KLM
Royal Dutch Airlines; Bankers Trust
Co.; Richard C. Blum and
Associates, a San Francisco
merchant banking and investment
firm, and Elders Finance Group.
Airline pilots at Northwest have
not reached agreement with the
carrier on a new contract and talks
were scheduled to resume Tuesday.
Contracts with the airlines other
major unions have been settled.
"We intend to maintain NWA's
headquarters in Minnepolis-St. Paul
and to retain all of its existing hubs
and routes," Checchi said.
"Our financing plan has been
designed to accommodate a program
of substantial growth, including all of
the new aircraft purchases


contemplated by NWA's manage-
ment."
"The NWA board of directors has
concluded that the Wings offer is fair
and in the best interests of NWA's
shareholders and recommends that
NWA shareholders tender their
shares into the Wings offer," a
statement from NWA said.
"Pursuant to the NWA-Wings
merger agreement, a Wings
subsidiary will commence in the next
five days a tender offer to purchase
all outstanding NWA shares at a cash
price of $121 per share," the
statement said.
"The tender offer will be
rnndltionnPd innn amano nther


things, the tender of at least a
majority of NWA's shares, he receipt
of financing for the transaction, and
certain other customary conditions
in transactions of this type," the
statement said.
Following successful completion
of the Wings offer, any NWA shares
not purchased in the offer would be
converted into $121 a share in cash in
a merger with NWA.
NWA on Monday also introduced
its latest purchase, the first Airbus
A320 jetliners. Northwest has orders
and options for 100 of the 150-seat
aircraft, which features a fly-by-wire
electronics to operate its flight
systems and a joystick instead of a

Chairman approves House S&L bill


SEATTLE (UPI) --While
expressing reservations on some of
the specifics, the chairman of the
Federal Home Loan Bank Board
said last week the savings and loan
rescue bill passed by the House is
necessary legislation that will help
pull the thrift industry out of its
financial morass.
"I think consumers should
recognize that Congress is making
good on its pledge that federal
insurance will be there," M. Danny
Wall told the annual meeting of the
Federal Home Loan Bank of Seattle,
which oversees savings and loan
institutions in eight Western states
plus Guam.
Wall referred to landmark
legislation passed overwhelmingly by
the House Thursday.
In a rare defeat of the strong S&L
lobby, the House voted 320-97 to
pass the $285 billion thrift rescue bill.
The measure ensures that people
with funds in failed thrifts won't lose
their deposits and institutes reforms
to prevent a recurrence of the greed,
fraud, and mismanagement that
helped cause the crisis.
The legislation also includes tough
new regulations and new agencies to
police the industry.
About 55 percent, or $157 billion,
of the amount would be paid by
taxpayers and the rest by the thrift
industry. The General Accounting
Office has said the bill will cost
Americans about $600 each.


The bill passed in large part
because President Bush put his
political muscle behind it, and
lobbied Republican legislators to
back it as well.
The legislation now goes to a
conference committee, where
differences will be hammered out
between the House version and a
Senate bill passed in April. The
legislation is expected to be on the
president's desk by August.
Wall expressed some concern
about the effects of a key reform that
would force S&L owners to increase
the amount of their own money
invested in their institutions.
The House killed an amendment
by Rep. Henry Hyde, R-Ill., to allow
some owners to continue counting an
intangible asset, known as
supervisory good will, as part of the
hard capital they otherwise would be
required to invest in their thrifts.
As written, the bill would require
most S&L owners to bring the
amount of their own funds invested
in their institutions up to 3 percent of
total assets by June 1990. The theory
is that the more of their own money
they have at stake, the less likely they
would be to make highly speculative
investments and loans that helped
create the S&L crisis.
The Senate bill would have S&L
owners invest 1.5 percent of their
capital.
Under the House bill, those thrifts
with supervisory good will on their


books would have until January 1995
to phase out counting it toward the 3
percent capital standard.
Wall said while the intent is good,
the 3 percent requirement could put
some small but well-managed thrifts
out of business.
"Some banks will have the
wherewithal to fulfill their
obligations," he said. "But others
won't and will have to borrow from
other banks. That says there's
something wrong (with the
measure)."
Wall also echoed a criticism made
by James Faulstich, president of the
Federal Home Loan Bank of Seattle,
who objected to a requirement that
Federal Home Loan Banks set aside
up to $75 million annually for four
years for low- and moderate-income
housing.
"This is a well-intentioned idea,
and it may be appropriate at some
time in the future. The question is,
can the industry afford it now in light
of all the other burdens that are being
placed on it," Faulstich said.
"When it comes to working in
support of moderate- and low-
income housing, this industry takes
second place to no one. That's been.
our job," he said. "We don't need a.
congressionally-defined allocation to
make housing a priority. It already is
a priority, and always will be."
Wall said despite its weaknesses,
the legislation would do what needs
to be done to pay back depositors


and rescue the industry.
"Insofar as you can realistically
provide for it, hopefully we will never
have something like (the S&L crisis)
again," he said.

Trump to buy another $63mA tlantic City casino


LAWRENCE. N.J. (UPI) --
Billionaire Donald Trump will go
ahead with a $63 million deal to buy
Atlantic City's failed Atlantis Casino
Hotel, despite two conditions
imposed by state gaming regulators,
Trump's representatives said.
Trump's brother, Robert,
speaking after a New Jersey Casino
Control Commission vote on the
issue, said Trump determined he
could live with the conditions.
Robert Trump had said earlier
that conditions of the sort
contemplated by the commission
were likely to kill the sale of the
Atlantis.
Atlantis' current management,
Elsinore Corp. of Las Vegas, had
said if Trump canceled and the deal
fell through, it would be forced to


WASHINGTON (UPI) -- The
Agriculture Department denied last
week a request to subsidize the sale of
U.S. soybean oil to the Soviet Union,
days after offering the Kremlin a
chance to buy surplus butter at
attractive prices.
Soviet trade officials, during
consultations in late April, indicated
interest in buying up to 500,000
metric tons of soybean oil under the
U.S. Export Enhancement Program.
In the four years since the United
States created the program to offset
the agricultural subsidies offered by
its competitors, wheat has been the
only commodity sold at a subsidy to
the Soviet Union.
Monday, Agriculture Secretary
Clayton Yeutter announced that the
Soviet Union would be offered a
chance to buy up to 75,000 metric


close the hotel portion of the 22-story
Boardwalk facility.
The casino portion was ordered
closed in May because it could no
longer meet commission cash reserve
requirements.
The only potential roadblock to
the Trump deal now is a legal
challenge by Atlantis creditors in
federal bankruptcy court. A hearing
is scheduled Monday. Robert Trump
said the Atlantis is now within days
of financial collapse.
The commission voted unan-
inlOrsly to approve the Trump
contract, bit voted 3-2 to add on two
conditions.
The conditions were intended to
ensure that Trump, already the
owner of two operating Atlantic City
casinos and another under


tons of U.S. surplus butter at world
prices, which are one-third lower
than the price the government pays
American farmers when it buys
surplus butter.
In a brief statement announcing its
soyoil decision, the Agriculture
Department said: "After careful
review based upon the criteria of the
Export Enhancement Program as
well as other proposals, the
(department) will not offer a
subsidized sale of vegetable oil to the
Soviet Union at this time."
Asked for how long such a
decision would stand, Kelly Shipp, a
spokeswoman for Yeutter said, "I
can't put any time frame on it." But
she added, "It's unlikely that this
particular proposal would move
forward."


construction, does not come to
dominate and control the Atlantic
City gaming market with his vast
holdings.
There are only nine non-Trump
casinos currently in operations in the
resort city.
Robert Trump, who is executive
vice president of the Trump Organization,
said he believed the conditions the
commission adopted do nothing to
restrict his brother's future Atlantic
City expansion that the commission
could not already have done under its
present authority.
"What they have done is weave a
fine fabric," he said. "I believe (the
conditions) are a restatement of what
their powers are anyway."
The conditions require Trump to
seek conimission approval before
buying any addl'ritnal casino-zoned
real estate in Atlantic City. He will
also need commission appro,.al to
build any new hotel rooms in the
resort.
"It is clear that Mr. Trump is the
leading market force in the Atlantic
City casino industry, and that we
must retain the ability to consider
any additional development or real
estate acquisition before it occurs,"
said Walter Read, the chairman of
the commission.
"I personally believe we have the
regulatory authority to oversee such
matters anyway, even in the absence
of an express condition," he said.
Conditions on the Trump deal
were first proposed by the state
Division of Gaming Enforcement,
but the DGE asked the commission
for an outright ban on any future
casino-zoned acquisitions by Trump
in the city.
The division also proposed that
the commission assert that it would


order Trump to sell property if it
found him to be wielding too much
economic power in the city as a result
of his vast holdings.
Neither of those conditions were
part of the final ruling from the
commission.
"It is axiomatic that a court or
agency should not decide issues
which are not presented by the facts
before it," Read said. "It is certainly
premature for the commission to
concern itself with this extraordinary
remedy" proposed by the DGE.
Trump plans to turn the Atlantis'
500 rooms into a super-luxury hotel
to support his operations at the
Trump Plaza and Trump Castle
casinos and at the Trump Taj Mahal
Casino, which is currently under
construction.
He could not reopen the Atlantis's
gaming floors without giving up one
of his other casinos, because New
Jersey allows a single licensee only
-hree casinos.
Tht commission held two days of
testimony ov'C whether the purchase
of the hotel by Truin would give the
developer too much econC!uic clout
in Atlantic City.
"I am satisfied ... that the proposed
acquisition of the Atlantis would not
deleteriously affect the competitive
climate tha' now exists in Atlantic
City," Read sai,. "No impermissible
economic concentration will ensue if
this purchase is approve-d.
Anthony Parillo, the d'i ctor of
the DGE, said he was disappointed
the commission decided against
imposing all of the conditions
recommended by the division.
Commissioners Frank Dodd and
W. David Waters objected to the
inclusion of the conditions,
complaining that the commission
was overreaching its authority.

Mitsotaks'paty defeatssociaktPtpmu&eou


ATHENS, Greece (UPI) - The
conservative New Democracy party,
led by Constantine Mitsotakis,
soundly defeated the scandal-tainted
forces of socialist Prime Minister
Andreas Papandreou in parliamen-
tary elections Sunday.
Results from more than 57 percent
of the country's 20,081 polling
stations showed New Democracy
with 45.1 percent of the vote, while
Papandreou's Pan-Hellenic Socialist
Union, or PASOK, trailed with 38.6
percent, officials said.
The Leftist Alliance for Progress,
made up of two Communist groups
and other leftists, had 12.8 percent of
the popular vote, and smaller parties
got 3.5 percent, officials said.
Political analysts said if the trend
continued, Mitsotakis could take 146
seats, five short of an outright
majority in the Vouli, or parliament,
while Papandreou's party would win

Leftist Alliance for Progress could
take 30 seats, with the remaining two
going to other parties.
Papandreou, who was hurt by a
financial scandal and his open liaison
with an airline stewardess less than
half his age, acknowledged that the
conservative New Democracy would
be the largest single party in the new
parliament, but predicted liberal
forces will remain a majority.
"I express my gratitude to the
citizens who supported us and who


didn't allow New Democracy to get
an overall majority," Papandreou
said. "It is true the conservatives
would be the first party and PASOK
the second, but in parliament there
will be a democratic progressive
majority and the struggle will
continue."
In a statement after early returns
showed his party in the lead, the 70-
year-old Mitsotakis said: "The
people condemned a government of
scandals. They have won a great
victory."
Mitsotakis said he would "await
the final results and see if we have an
overall majority."
New Democracy needs 47 percent
of the popular vote to gain an overall
majority of 151 seats in parliament.
Mitsotakis said in an interview
Saturday that he expected to get just
over 47 percent and was confident he
would form a government on
Monday.

a disapproval of PASOK's policies."

Prime Minister's widow identifies husband's killer


STOCKHOLM, Sweden (UPI) -
The widow of assassinated Prime
Minister Olof P-alme identified
Christer Petter son in court Monday
as the map she saw seconds after her
husbn;1d was fatally shot and she was
Wounded more than three years ago.
Lisbet Palme, who was grazed by
one of the two bullets that killed her
husband Feb. 28, 1986, as the couple
walked home from a late night movie
is the only person to claim to have
seen the murderer's face.
Pettersson, 42, a self-declared
habitual criminal, alcoholic and drug
addict who was arrested Dec. 14,


1988, repeatedly has professed his
innocence and had asked to be
present during Palme's widow's
testimony.
Pettersson was not present in the
top security courtroom as
proceedings began Monday in court
due to deference to conditions laid
down by Palme for her participation
in the trial.
Pettersson instead heard her
testimony on internal radio in an
adjoining room. But at the end of her
cross examination, Pettersson was
brought into the courtroom for the
two-minute identification session.


"Is this the man you saw standing
on the street corner?" prosecutor
Anders Helin asked.
"Yes," Palme said.
"Are you absolutely sure?" Helin
asked.
"Yes," Palme answered again.
"You have no doubts?" "No."
Then defense attorney Arne Liljeros
asked, "Can you be so certain after
three years?" "Yes," Palme said,
forcefully.
Speaking at the end of the
confrontation, Pettersson said: "In
heaven, Olof Palme won't like this. If
you believe what you're saying, that's


OK. If you don't, it isn't." He then
was led out of court.
Palme's testimony did not identify
Pettersson as the murderer but only
as a person she saw 5 yards away
immediately after her husband had,
fallen and she had been grazed by a
bullet.
In the week of the trial that
followed, the prosecution case, which
is based only on circumstantial
evidence, began to crumble as all key
prosecution witnesses retracted their
pre-trial testimony.
The trial of Pettersson is scheduled
to last until July 15.

Managua's cabbies return to work


MANAGUA, Nicaragua (Reuter)
- Taxi drivers in the Nicaraguan
capital agreed at the weekend to try
government proposals in a dispute
which led to a nationwide strike last
week following a rise in gasoline
prices, drivers' spokesmen said.
Some 3,000 taxi drivers
nationwide went on strike to protest
a 110 percent rise in the price of
gasoline following a 52.5 percent
devaluation of the Nicaraguan
currency.
They suspended their strike
Thursday pending more negotiations
with the government.
"We decided to put the
government's proposals to the test
three or four days next week and then
decide" whether to press on with the
drivers'demands, union leader Rene
Chavez told reporters.
Under the provisional agreement,
each driver will be sold a certain


amount of gasoline at the old price
and drivers will be able to set fares by
agreement with passengers instead of
charging by a fixed scale, he said.
The drivers had demanded that
they be sold fuel at the old price,
saying that high costs and low
demand made it impossible for them
to make a living.
The agreement will also have half
of Managua's 1,200 cabs working in
the morning and half in the afternoon
to combat a surplus of taxis.
Armando Rivera, an official of the
July 19 taxi cooperative in Managua,
said five of the city's seven taxi
cooperatives had voted in favor of
the agreement thrashed out with the
government Friday night. Two were
still undecided, he said.
The dispute was a sign of growing
labor unrest in Nicaragua over
rampant inflation and harsh
austerity measures implemented by
the government.

Ortega spoke at a rally in Managua
after the Foreign Ministry
announced that U.S. citizens wishing
to visit Nicaragua would require
visas beginning July 1.
Visits will require special
permission from the Nicaraguan
government, and there is only one
consulate in Washington empowered
to issue those visas, since the U.S.
government ordered other facilities
closed in 1985.
"This is not directed at the
majority of Americans who are
friends of Nicaragua. We are doing it
so that U.S. government officials do
not abuse Nicaragua's hospitality,"
he told the rally, marking the 10th
anniversary of an uprising in a
Managua suburb against former
dictator Anastasio Somoza.
At present, any American with a
passport could enter or leave
Nicaragua whenever he liked,
including those conspiring against
the people of Nicaragua, he said.

Ortega indicated that the decision
to reintroduce visas, abolished in
1985, was designed to stop U.S.
interference in elections set for
February 1990.
"The Yankees have reached the-
extreme of wanting to direct the
electoral process in Nicaragua. They
want to come to do what we
Nicaraguans must do. We can't
permit this," he said.
The Nicaraguan government
warned earlier this month it would
not allow unauthorized foreign
observers of the elections. Sandinista
leaders have also condemned plans
by the U.S. National Endowment for
Democracy to give $3 million in aid
to Nicaraguan opposition groups.
Ortega criticized a recent trip to
Central America by U.S. Vice-
President Dan Quayle, who he said
had come to pressure and to
blackmail regional governments to
speak out against Nicaragua.
"Hie didn't come working for
peace. He came seeking how to do
more harm to the Nicaraguan
people," he said.


Mexico police chief gets away with murder


MEXICO CITY (UPI) - The
former head of Mexican secret
police, arrested two days ago in
connection with the slaying of a
popular journalist, will be charged
only with obstructing justice and
related crimes, authorities said last
week.
The Mexico City Attorney
General's office indicated it was
unable to file homicide charges
against Jose Antonio Zorrilla Perez
because the suspect had destroyed
documents needed to prove its case.
Mexican authorities earlier had
said Zorrilla was the "intellectual
author" of the slaying of journalist
Manuel Buendia, who was shot
point-blank in a parking lot next to
his office in Mexico City on May 30,
1984.
Zorrilla, former chief of the
Federal Security Directorate, a now-
defunct police agency in charge of
political intelligence, was arrested
Tuesday evening in the capital after a
brief shootout with police.
Zorrilla, at his arraignment
Thursday, denied involvement in the
slaying and also rejected allegations


he has close ties with a Mexican drug
kingpin.
"I am innocent," Zorrilla told a
federal judge. "I am victim of the
judicial error."
Zorrilla said he had been a friend
of Buendia.
Prior to the arraignment, Marco
Antonio Diaz de Leon, director of
told reporters police have


"voluminous" documents to prove
Zorrilla's involvement in the Buendia
the department's legal trial slaying.
But in a surprising turn of events,
the Attorney General's office issued a
statement late Thursday announcing
it was charging Zorrilla only with
"obstructing justice" and "abusing
authority."

Trade unionists suffer 650 killed


GENEVA (Reuter) - Nearly 650
trade unionists were murdered and
more than 10 times as many arrested
last year during normal union
activity around the world, the largest
Western labor group said Monday.
Trade unionists in Latin America
suffered the most brutal repression,
and the situation in Africa caused
concern, the International
Confederation of Free Trade Unions
(ICFTU) said in an annual survey of
violations of trade union rights.
The report, which cited 79
countries, said the number of deaths
was nearly double the figure of 350
reported in the previous year's


survey.
ICFTU General Secretary John
Vanderveken said the increase was
very disheartening. He called in a
statement for stronger government
action to halt rising persecution of
trade unionists.
The survey said many Latin
American countries showed "a
pattern of vicious repression, and
apparent government indifference
allied to legal moves against trade
union movements." It cited killings
and arrests in Colombia, El Salvador
and Brazil and repression in
Guatemala, Nicaragua, Chile and
Paraguay.


decision not to file homicide charges
against Zorrilla. However, the
statement said Zorrilla had destroyed
documents crucial to the
investigation.
If convicted of charges of
obstructing justice and abuse of
power, Zorrilla could face up to 22
years in prison.
Zorrilla headed the Federal
Security Directorate during the
administration of former president
Miguel de la Madrid. The agency was
disbanded in 1985 after several of its
members were implicated in
protecting drug traffickers and other
corrupt practices.
The Buendia slaying became a
cause celebre in Mexico, where
government critics alleged the
popular journalist had been killed
because of his scathing attacks on
government corruption in the
newspaper Excelsior.
More than 30journalists have been
killed in Mexico during the past
seven years, according to the Manuel
Buendia Foundation, an organization
formed by the journalist's family and
friends.

Cal-OSHA to receive VDT-use recommendations


SAN FRANCISCO (UPI) -- The
state agency that monitors safety in
the workplace has compiled a major
report on video display terminals,
but the two dozen experts who took
part were unable to agree on specific
recommendations.
The report, an advance copy of
which was obtained by United Press
International, is to be presented June
22 to Cal-OSHA, the state's
Occupational Safety and Health
Administration. It is the culmination
of 2 1/2 years of work by an ad hoc
committee of doctors, labor
representatives, experts from
terminal manufacturing companies
and industrial consultants.
The committee was formed in
response to three petitions filed by
labor representatives asking Cal-
OSHA to come up with specific
guidelines and regulations on the use
of VDTs, which have been alleged to
cause or exacerbate various ailments.
An advance copy of the study was
immediately hailed by a VDT
industry group as giving the
terminals "a clean bill of health."
The Computer and Business
Equipment Manufacturers
Association said in a statement from
Washington that the study indicated
there was no evidence that VDTs
cause vision, musculoskeletal, stress,
reproduction or indoor environment
problems, providing the VDTs are
well maintained and used properly.
"We have consistently encouraged
good VDT workstation design and
training programs to help VDT
workers be comfortable and
productive," John Picklitt, president
of the CBEMA, said. "And they are


exactly what Cal-OSHA is calling
for."
A spokesman for Cal-OSHA,
however, said the industry group is
jumping the gun and reading only the
parts of the report supportive of its
position.
"I wouldn't say thatjust yet," Rich
Stevens cautioned. "This report is a
collection of opinions and
recommendations. A lot of people
had a lot of different things to say."
The report covers VDT impact in
five areas: vision, musculoskeletal,
stress, reproduction and indoor en-
vironment. Vision took top billing in
the report because, the committee
said, "vision-related complaints are
the most common."
The committee determined that
VDT work "can result in transient
visual discomfort and that there is no
conclusive evidence of permanent
damage to the visual system."
It also agreed that more research is
needed to determine whether there
would be long-term effects on the
eyes of VDT users.
The committee could not reach a
consensus on whether new
regulations are necessary, but a
majority called for several, including
mandatory eye examinations every
90 days and periodic rest breaks,
such as 10-15 minutes every two
hours.
Concern over VDTs and
musculoskeletal problems is
currently at a peak because of a rash
of problems being reported in
newsrooms and other workplaces
where VDTs are the primary tools
for large numbers of employees.
Many employees have complained


recently of symptoms of RSI, or
repetitive strain injury.
The Newspaper Guild filed a
complaint with Cal-OSHA on May
16 alleging that nearly 30 percent of
the editorial employees at the Fresno
Bee (35 of 133) are suffering from
various stages of RSI.
The injuries include three cases of
carpal tunnel syndrome, an ailment
that damages nerves in the wrist and
hand. All 35 injured employees have
had time off work, splints for their
wrists and, in at least two cases,
surgery.
The Cal-OSHA investigation,
unrelated to the VDT report, is
expected to take at least a couple of
months, and investigators refused to
comment on the case.
The ad hoc committee found that
the VDT itself was probably not the
villian, but that RSI and other
musculoskeletal problems are most
likely caused by improperly adjusted
work stations.
Still up in the air, the committee
said, is whether VDT use is


associated with permanent
musculoskeletal disability and
disease.
On the subject of stress, the VDT
fared pretty well. The committee
noted that there are "features of VDT
work that may be associated with
stress" but said most of the stress-
related complaints could be
eliminated "by the employer at
minimal cost."
One participant wrote, "Stress is
not unique to VDT work."
The committee acknowledged that
there is "significant concern among
many VDT workers about adverse
pregnancy outcomes in association
with VDT work," but had "no
conclusive evidence" to support that
concern.
The members were sharply divided
on this issue, with some maintaining
that VDTs are linked to birth defects
and miscarriages and others saying
preventive measures such as wearing
lead aprons are actually more
harmful than the VDTs.
"There is a need for additional
research," they wrote.


Union president backs labor-management programs


ANAHEIM, Calif. (UPI) --United
Auto Workers President Owen
Bieber strongly endorsed joint
programs that involve close labor-
management cooperation at
Sunday's opening of the sharply-
divided union's national convention.
"Our participation in joint
programs is motivated by only one
consideration, and that is the
universal desire of workers to have a
say over their jobs and have a more
satisfying and secure situation at
work," Bieber said to about 2,000
delegates.
About 10 percent of the delegates
to the six-day triennial constitutional
convention are dissidents who
believe such "jointness" programs --
similar to those used by Japanese


automakers - do not protect the
union's 1 million rank-and-file
members.
Bieber, without mentioning the
dissident "New Directions"
campaign by name, said, "There has
been a lot of confusion and outright
misrepresentation about why we have
some of these programs and what
they're supposed to accomplish."
"I haven't met a worker yet who is
content to let management call the
shots or who doesn't care how
wasteful and inefficient the work
process," Bieber said.
"I say we need to keep up with a
changing workplace and with the
changing needs of people both in that
workplace and in the larger society,"
he said. "To be frank, I think that


those who say that workers don't
want change in the workplace - who
insist that the old ways were always
the best ways - are insulting the
intelligence of UAW members."
Bieber stressed the need to watch
such programs for abuses. He noted
that within the past three years, the
UAW has authorized 817 strikes for
81,721 members.
Bieber also warned that the union
will make excessive overtime a major
issue in next year's contract
negotiations. He also promised that
the UAW will be making strong
organizing drives at non-union U.S.
auto plants, specifically the Nissan
facility in Smyrna, Tenn.


On July 26-27, the workers at that
plant will vote whether to join the
UAW despite strong opposition
from the company.
Delegates at Anaheim Convention
Center gave Beiber's 75-minute
speech a strong but not raucous
response, with a one-minute standing
ovation at its conclusion. Many
delegates twirled bandanas with the
slogan "Elect the Bieber Team."
Delegates are slated to elect
officers and regional directors during
the convention. Speakers include
Senate Majority Leader Goerge
Mitchell, House Democratic
Majority Leader Richard Gephart
and New York Gov. Mario Cuomo.

"Everyone on the team is a
burn-care specialist," said Ray
Dery, a Brooke Army Medical
Center spokesman. "The team
consists of three surgeons
specializing in burn-care
treatment and three Army nurses
trained in intensive care and burn-
care treatment." Six practical
nurse specialists, three respiratory
technicians, a laboratory
technician and the chief of the
microbiology branch are also
assisting in the mission, he said,
along with an Army medical
operations officer and three
Russian translators.
The team departed Andrews Air
Force Base in Maryland on June
9, and they will stay in the Soviet
Union as long as their services are
needed.
Lt. Col. William Becker, the
team chief, notified Institute
officials on June 12 that the team
was working in Ufa, a large city in
the Ural Mountains, according to
Dery. "Becker said the team
already had treated 60 patients
and they were planning to do
surgery on patients in the next few
days," Dery said.
The Institute of Surgical
Research, a tenant unit of Fort
Sam Houston, Texas, studies burn
injuries and develops improved
treatment methods.


Foss nominated

FORT MONROE, Va.
(ARNEWS) - Lt. Gen. John W.
Foss, currently the Army's deputy
chief of staff for operations and
plans, as well as the Army senior
member of the military staff
committee to the United Nations,
has been nominated by the
president to become commander
of the Training and Doctrine
Command.
Foss, a 1957 West Point
graduate, succeeds Gen. Maxwell
R. Thurman, who will retire from
the Army Sept. 1 after more than
36 years of service.
Foss served at TRADOC
headquarters from 1973-76 as a
combat developments staff
officer. He was the commanding
general, at the U.S.
Army Infantry Center, Fort
Benning, Ga., from March 1984 to
January 1986. Before assuming his
current position, Foss command-
ed the XVIII Airborne Corps,
Fort Bragg, N.C.
A change of command
ceremony has been scheduled for
Aug. 2 at TRADOC headquarters
on Fort Monroe, Va. (From a
TRADOC News Service release.)


West Point honor code may change


WASHINGTON (ARNEWS) -
The panel formed last fall to review
the West Point honor code has
recommended to the academy and
senior Army leaders that the code be
changed only "in detail."
Dr. Wesley Posvar, president of
the University of Pittsburgh, who
chaired the panel and is himself a
West Point graduate, said the honor
code has endured "unchanged for
nearly 150 years except in detail,"
and that the committee's
recommendations followed those
earlier precedents.
The West Point honor code has
simply been, "a cadet will not lie,
cheat or steal, nor tolerate those who
do." Besides enjoining cadets from
such unethical acts, the code also
means cadets are expected to report
other cadets who violate the code.
The committee recommended
rewording the code to say, "a cadet
will not lie, cheat or steal, nor tolerate
such acts in others," putting the onus
on the unethical acts instead of on the
cadets who commit them. Violations
of the code do not automatically
mean an individual is all bad and
incapable of rehabilitation, Posvar
.said.
The committee recommended


more substantive changes in the
honor system, the academy's means
of enforcing the honor code. Posvar
said the panel felt that the honor
system has come to be used too much
as a tool for enforcing regulations,
thus placing what he called "undue
burdens" on the honor code and
trivializing it.
Among the recommended changes
to the system are improving the
procedures for investigating and
evaluating honor code violations,
changing the order of witnesses in
honor code cases, and reducing the
time taken to resolve honor cases.

In its only major step away from
tradition, the panel suggested "other
than dismissal" punishment for some
honor code violations. "We feel
retention is a viable alternative in
some cases," Posvar said. "The
superintendent should have that
alternative, just as the judicial system
sets maximum and minimum
penalties for violations."

The board repeated the
recommendations of past review
commissions that an independent
board of "trustees" be established to
advise and support the superinten-


dent. Concluding that the current
West Point board of visitors -
appointed by the president often
"based on criteria that may not
include substantive professional and
academic experience" - frequently
may not serve its intended purpose,
Posvar suggested that "trustees"
possibly should be appointed for
extended periods by the superinten-
dent.
"Presidents change; superinten-
dents change, and we found that this
causes a lack of continuity or
institutional memory among the
board of visitors," Posvar said. "The
trustees we're recommending should
be appointed for a term which would
allow them to serve beyond the
tenure of one superintendent or one
administration."
Posvar believes that academy and
senior Army leaders "agree with most
of our recommendations."
Posvar said the commission
concluded, "somewhat to our
surprise," that the honor code is "not
old fashioned. It is simply high
values; an ethical concept capable of
beneficially affecting the behavior
not just of our military leaders but of
all public officials."


Army proving ground welcomes eagles


ABERDEEN PROVING
GROUND, Md. (ARNEWS) -
According to the World Wildlife
Fund, up to one million species of
plants and animals may become
extinct by the year 2000. The national
bird, the bald eagle, is on this list.
At Aberdeen Proving Ground's
Chemical Research, Development
and Engineering Center, the Army is
bucking the trend.
The Maryland installation
encompasses more than 80,000 acres
in the northern Chesapeake Bay area,
much of it undeveloped shoreline.
Proximity to the water, along with its
undisturbed areas and abundant fish
and waterfowl, makes the post an
ideal location for the eagle. The
number of wintering eagles on the
proving ground increased to more
than 100 this year, up from last year's
midwinter count of 87.
Janis D. Chase, CRDEC's
Environmental Quality Office chief,
is excited about these numbers and
attributes the increase to the eagle's
steady recovery from poisoning by
the pesticide DDT, which was
banned in the United States in the
early 1970s. She also says the center's
efforts to identify eagle roosting and
feeding habitats will assist land
managers.
"All federal agencies are required
by law to work toward the
conservation of endangered species,"
said Chase, also a wildlife biologist.
"CRDEC is doing that here."
Chase said that Aberdeen has
restricted access to eagle nesting
territories during their critical
nesting period, normally February
through June. "No one is allowed
within 1,000 meters of the nests," she
said.
In addition, CRDEC has
contracted with the Virginia
Polytechnic Institute to monitor the
eagles' movement.
"One of the methods used to study
the eagle's habitat requirement is by
using telemetry," Chase said. "The


Virginia Polytechnic Institute
monitors the birds' movement via a
small signal-emitting device which is
attached to the eagles. The signals are
then tracked throughout the
Chesapeake Bay."
"APG has a very dynamic (eagle)
population," said Dr. James D.
Fraser, associate professor of
fisheries and wildlife sciences at
Virginia Tech. "There's an influx
from Maine in the winter and Florida
in the summer. With the telemetry
study we are able to locate the eagles.
This helps us to see how they move
around. We do this by conducting
telemetry flights once a month."
The bald eagle is a native North
American bird suited to life in the
Pacific Northwest and Chesapeake
Bay, and throughout the United
States. The immature bird is brown
and sometimes confused with the
golden eagle or turkey vulture. Its
head and tail turn white when the
bird is between 4 and 5 years old.
When fully mature, they reach a
length of 34 to 43 inches and have a


wingspan of 6 to 7 feet.
"They prefer to nest in old, mature
trees," Chase said. "Their nests can
be 5 feet across and up to 6 feet deep."
National Wildlife Foundation
studies have shown the average eagle
lays one to three eggs, which hatch
after 35 days. The eaglets fledge
sometime in June. Chase says APG
has six active nests.
Another aspect of the CRDEC
research program involves the eagle's
prey preference and availability. Two
immature birds which cannot be
rehabilitated to the wild are kept in
captivity in the Edgewood peninsula
area. Don and Anita De Long,
husband-and-wife graduate students
from Virginia Tech, feed the birds
daily and monitor their preferences.
This data will be compared to the diet
of eagles in their natural habitat.
"The eagles have learned to breed,
forage and roost at APG," Chase
said. "They don't seen to be disturbed
by the noise, they are more disturbed
by the presence of humans." (From a
CRDEC release.)


DoD ends adoption reimbursements Sept. 30


receive up to $2,000 per adopted
child and up to $5,000 in a
calendar year for authorized
expenses. Officials at the U.S.
Army Finance and Accounting
Center at Fort Benjamin
Harrison, Ind., say that parents
must provide paid receipts for
expenses, such as placement, legal
and medical fees, when submitting
their claim. They add that the
receipts should clearly show the
purpose of the payment.
Finance officials say that
purchased travel required for the
adoption process is reimbursable,
but add that mileage is not.
Claims must be filed within 180
days of the final adoption date or
the date of the Army's
implementing instruction -
whichever comes later.


FORT BENJAMIN HAR-
RISON, Ind. (ARNEWS) - The
Defense Department's test
program of reimbursing military
personnel for child adoption
expenses is slated to end
Sept. 30.
The test began in November
1988 and has reimbursed more
than 200 families for a total of
more than $300,000 to date.
Under the program, soldiers
who serve at least 180 days on
active duty, including reserve
component soldiers, may file a
claim for reimbursement on
expenses for adoptions that take
place between Oct. 1, 1987. and
Sept. 30, 1989. In addition, they
must be serving on active duty
when they file their claim.

Q. I was, to say the least, quite impressed with Pittsburgh Pirate
slugger Andy Van Slyke and his recent barechested portrait in Vogue
magazine. How come Madison Avenue has not yet picked up this
baseball star for a strong advertising campaign to endorse a
particular product? Ms. P., Spokane, Wash.
A. When it comes to athletes, Madison Avenue usually picks an athlete
from a major metropolitan area like New York or Los Angeles, or, for
instance, a World Series MVP or Super Bowl MVP. However, Andy made
such a splash with his Vogue appearance that the rumor mill has B.V.D.
underwear courting Andy for an endorsement. The campaign would be
similar to the Jim Palmer underwear ads from a few years back.

Q. With all the flack and poor publicity Rob Lowe has recently
received from his supposed home orgy porno flick featuring a minor, I
was wondering if he was led to do this because he is still hurting from
his hrcaknn with Melissa Gilbert. E.G.. Fort Worth. Texas


A. It has been quite a long time since Rob and Melissa were an item.
Reported, Rob was a bit stunned by her marriage to playwright Bo
Brinkman back in 1988, but he apparently got over it fairly quickly. Rob and
Melissa still reportedly remain very good friends and Lowe was mainly upset
over her marriage because he was not originally informed about her
marriage intentions until after the fact.

Q. What is the status of the Morton Downey, Jr. talk show? I hear
that it is going to be going off the air. C.G., Buffalo, N.Y.
A. Downey's show originally debuted with 63 affiliates across the nation
picking up the show. That number has now increased to 72 stations.
However, it has been rumored that many of these stations are now
disenchanted with the explosive nature of Downey's personality and show.
In fact, most stations have moved the talk slugfest to the wee hours of the
morning. Rumor mongers across the nation do say the show's days appear
numbered. Only time will tell.

Q. Will "Hee-Haw" be returning to the airwaves next fall? R.B.,
Winter Haven, Fla.
A. The popular and corny television show will be returning for an
unprecedented 22nd season next fall with Roy Clark'returning as host. Such
cast regulars as Minnie Pearl, Grandpa Jones and George Lindsey will all be
back. Among some of the stars guest appearing next season are, Kathy
Mattea, Loretta Lynn, Barbara Mandrell, The Judds, Ricky Skaggs, Regis
Philbin and Roy Rogers to name just a few.

Q. Is it true that Patrick Swayze has entered the restaurant
business like many other movie and television stars? D.B., Fort Lee,
N.J.
A. Not only has Patrick entered the restaurant business, but he is
expanding along with his partner Bobby Ochs. Swayze's "Mulloholland.Drive
Cafe" on Third Avenue in New York City grossed over $4 million in its first
year of existence. So another eatery is in the works in North Miami called
"Mulloholland Drive Cafe in North Miami." The opening is set for September
15th with Patrick on hand to greet customers with fine food and hooch.

Suburu's Legacy rates as 'good car'


(Editors: For each car written
about in his weekly Roadtalk
column, UPI Auto Writer Jan
Zverina test drives the vehicle for
about one week, driving it between
250 miles and 500 miles on both city
and rural roads.)

By Jan A. Zverina
UPI auto writer

DETROIT (UPI) - Japanese
carmaker Subaru has once again
applied its rather unorthodox
approach to vehicle design to come
up with the compact Legacy, its
largest -car ever.
Dubbed a 1990-model but now on
sale, the Legacy lives up to its name
by inheriting those traits that have
earned Subaru a small but loyal
following since it began selling
vehicles in the United States in the
1970s.
The concept of four-wheel-drive in
cars, which Subaru subscribed to
long before it became popular with
European automakers, lives on in the
pricier version of the Legacy. So does
the horizontally opposed four-
cylinder engine, which features a 16-
valve design for 1990.
The Legacy is similar in size and
appearance to a Ford Tempo but will
more directly compete with the
Honda Accord, Toyota Camry and
Mazda 626, all of which have
crowded into the more luxurious end
of the compact car market.
In fact, Subaru is one of the last
carmakers to field an entry in this
hotly contested segment.
But last is certainly not least in this
case. Subaru apparently has taken
great pains to do what other
carmakers only talk about - taking
the best features of the best sedans
and combining them with tried-and-
true technology.
The Legacy is offered in a plain
variiia sedan or wagon with just
front-wheel-drive, with prices
starting at $11,299 for the base sedan.
The plusher Legacy L begins at
$12,499, with a four-wheel-drive
version costing $1,200 more.
Evaluated for this review was the
Legacy LS with four-wheel-drive.
Its $16,499 base price swelled to
$17,923 as tested, including a $300
destination fee - pricey for any
compact car.




Beam me up,Scotty

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Any
suggestion that the crew of the
Starship Enterprise is getting a tad
old to be zipping about the galaxy
at warp speed brings a phaser stare
from the man who plays Capt.
James T. Kirk.
"I keep reading that, that we're
too old, but they never say too old
for what," said William Shatner,
the 58-year-old star, director and
co-writer of the latest Star Trek
film, "Star Trek V: The Final
Frontier."
Shatner said he keeps cool when
people point out lines on his face
or that he doesn't have the same
jaw line of 25 years ago.


Air conditioning, AM-FM stereo
cassette, four-wheel disc brakes,
cruise control, sun roof and tilt
steering are all standard on the LS as
are power windows, mirrors and
door locks.
An automatic transaxle is $750
extra on all models.
The Legacy's mechanicals are
cloaked in a body that is a bit
anonymous in styling, kind of a cross
between a Ford Tempo and an Acura
Legend. In fact, it seems a departure
for Subaru, which some years ago
spawned the XT coupe - a car that
made pundits wonder if its name
really stood for "Xtra Terrestial."
Inside, the Legacy LS has a well-
appointed, roomy interior with
comfortable yet supportive seats to
accommodate four adults in comfort,
five in a pinch. It is swathed in what
feels and looks like terry cloth more
than anything else, but it is in no way
offensive.
The rear setback folds forward to
expand the 15 cubic-foot trunk,
which has thoughtful touches like a
tool tray molded into the spare tire
cover.
The Legacy's dial instrumentation
is clearly marked, housed by a
dashboard containing conveniences
such as retractable twin cup holders
and a coin tray. Primary controls like
lights and wipers are readily at hand,
mounted on steering column stalks.


Canadian TV

by The Associated Press
A Canadian television station has
decided to take a late-night horror
show that depicts murder and torture
off the air - hours after its publicist
said it would not be bullied by upset
viewers.
Kathy Rupcic said station was
"complying" with the wishes of a
majority of its viewers by cancelling
Freddy's Nightmares.
While there were some letters of
support from the public, she said, the
station was "well aware of the
negative reaction."
Rupcic said in an interview earlier
Thursday that the show is "pretty
popular" and the station wouldn't be
bullied into cancelling it.
At least 14 complaints have been
lodged with the Canadian Radio-
television and Telecommunications
Commission by parents, priests and
teachers demanding it be taken off
the air.


The 2,830-pound Legacy LS has a
remarkably smooth, well-balanced
ride for its 101.6-inch wheelbase. It
never lost composure during some
brisk wet weather driving and
simulated emergency situations in a
rain-slicked parking lot, thanks to its
four-wheel-drive system that
maximizes road grip.
Its 2.2-liter engine pumps out 130
horsepower at 5,400 rpm to deliver
more than adequate power,
especially when driven at higher
rpms, as all 16-valvers should be. Its
6,500-rpm limit gives the driver
plenty of leeway. Its five-speed shifter
has a smooth and precise feel.
EPA fuel economy ratings are 21
mpg city and 27 mpg highway.
The fit and finish of the Legacy
reviewed were exemplary as were the
materials used. Access to owner-
serviceable items like the oil filter
also were good, although it's high
time carmakers do away with heavy
hoods that have to be held open by
prop rods.
Each Legacy carries a 36 month-
36,000 mile bumper-to-bumper
warranty and a six-year warranty
against corrosion.
It is hard to find fault with
Subaru's latest effort. It is one of a
handful of cars spanning the $12,000
to $18,000 price range that achieve a
high-qualilty blend between ride,
comfort, power, handling and value
- ingredients that must be used in
equal parts to create a truly good
automobile.

'Freddy's nightmares'


"The regular enactment of torture,
bondage, sexual -abuse, mutilation
and murder represented by Freddy's
Nightmares cannot be justified or
condoned by any station," said a
form letter written by Ernest
Robinson, the London teacher who
had lead a campaign to boycott the
station, and signed by supporters.
Robinson said he has 1,000 letters
of complaint from parents and
priests he was planning to send to the
CRTC objecting to the "unprecedent-
ed level" of violence on the show
aired Fridays at midnight.
"If there is going to be throats slit
on television, somebody has to speak
out."
CHCH was the only Canadian
station using the show but three
American stations also broadcast
Freddy's Nightmares into London,
Ontario.
The CRTC was to review tapes of
Freddy's Nightmares - based on the
Nightmare on Elm Street movies -
to see if it had broken regulations of
good taste.
Commission spokesman Jeff
Atkins said the station faced fines of
up to $25,000.
The Ontario Teachers' Federation
and school boards in the Ontario
communities of London, Chatham,
St. Catharines, Windsor and
Brockville had also asked for the
show to be cancelled.
"One of our concerns as teachers is
the impact gratuitous violence has on
young people," said Rod Albert,
president of the federation which
represents 115,000 Ontario teachers,
though he said he hasn't seen the
program.


The program was hosted by
Freddy Krueger, a character of
unapologetic evil. Like Rod Serling
on The Twilight Zone, he guided
characters through supernatural
events.

Switzer says NCAA "No fun anymore," quits OK


NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - Barry
Switzer resigned as Oklahoma's
football coach Monday, saying he
was frustrated by NCAA rules that
do not "recognize the financial needs
of young athletes."Switzer, who had
been pressured to quit since the
school's football program was put on
NCAA probation in December and
after several players were charged
early this year with crimes involving
drugs, guns and sexual assault, was
the fourth most successful coach in
college football history.
"I will never coach at another
institution. I will never coach at
another college level. I promise you
that," Switzer said at a news
conference.


"It's no fun anymore. I'm drained.
I don't have the energy level to
compete in this arena today," said
Switzer, 52.
He said the resignation as head
football coach was effective
immediately and that he would
accept a special assignment with the
Oklahoma athletic department.
"I finally decided the time has
come for new leadership," Switzer
said.
Switzer has been under fire for
more than six months, since before
the Sooners were placed on a three-
year NCAA probation. Switzer was
named in four of the 20 violations,
but denied knowledge of breaking
any NCAA rules. He was not


penalized by the university.
Switzer said he wanted to be a
spokesman for changing NCAA
rules that he said did not allow
coaches to treat athletes humanely.
He said he is "totally frustrated
working within a set of rigid rules
that does not recognize the financial
needs of young athletes.
"I am not making excuses but
simply giving an explanation when I
say it was difficult to turn my back on
these young men when they needed
help. We have created a system that
does not permit me or the: program to
buy a pair of shoes or a decent coat
for a player whose family can't afford
these basic necessities," Switzer said.


In August, a book by former
Sooner linebacker Brian Bosworth
said players used cocaine and fired
guns at the football players'
dormitory. Bosworth, who left the
team after the 1986 season, also
referred to NCAA violations and
said the Oklahoma football program
bordered on anarchy.
Switzer had called Bosworth's
claims sensationalism.
A source close to the Oklahoma
football program told The
Associated Press a leading candidate
to replace Switzer was defensive
coordinator Gary Gibbs and that a
replacement could be named as early
as Tuesday.


Giamatti 'biased,' says Rose


CINCINNATI AP) - Pete Rose,
claiming he was being judged by a
"biased and prejudiced commission-
er," filed suit Monday to prevent A.
Bartlett Giamatti from hearing
gambling allegations against him.
The Cincinnati manager,
admitting for the first time that a
former associate accused him of
betting on Reds' games, asked that
Giamatti be stopped from holding a
scheduled June 26 hearing because of
his "displayed bias and outrageous
conduct - as an investigator, a
prosecutor and a prospective judge."
Rose also said a 225-page report
on the charges by baseball
investigator John M. Dowd was
"based almost exclusively on hearsay
statements."
Giamatti said in a statement that
his lawyers had reviewed the court
papers"and have advised me that Mr.
Rose's lawsuit is wholly without
merit. I trust the court will permit me
to proceed with my hearing."In the
36-page suit, filed in Hamilton
County Common Pleas Court along
with almost 200 pages of exhibits,
Rose's lawyers:


-claimed baseball asked him to
step aside as Reds manager during
the investigation and "threatened
witnesses."- confirmed publicly for
the first time that Ronald Peters,who
claims he is Rose's former
bookmaker, accused Rose of betting
on Reds' games. If Giamatti finds
Peters' charges are true, Rose would
be banned for life.
- said Paul G. Janszen, another
former Rose associate, passed a lie-
detector test after failing his first
polygraph. According to a May 15
letter from Rose lawyer Roger J.
Makley to Dowd, Janszen told
baseball that Rose owed him
approximately $40,000 in gambling
debts.
-requested a temporary
restraining order and an injunction
against. Giamatti's hearing and asked
the court to impose "an impartial
decision-maker and fair procedures
for judging the accusations of betting
on baseball that have been levied
against him."
-asked for unspecified monetary
damages "which will fairly

compensate him for the destruction
of his reputation as one of baseball's
foremost living participants."
Giamatti originally had scheduled
baseball's hearing for May 25 but
postponed it until June 26 at the
request of Rose's lawyers.
Rose's lawyers claimed in court
papers that baseball's investigation
was"the result not of a fair and
impartial investigation but rather a


misguided and one-sided attempt to
prove -that Pete Rose bet on major
league baseball games."
The suit said that unless the court
intervened, "Rose will be forced to
rebut false accusations that he bet on
baseball that are contained in an
error-ridden report prepared by
agents of the commissioner of
baseball in proceedings before a
biased and prejudiced commission-
er."


'Rule of law'hits college athletics: sports agents go toprison


CHICAGO (AP) - A federal
judge on Monday sentenced sports
agents Norby Walters and Lloyd
Bloom to prison terms, saying he
hopes their punishment helps bring
"the rule of law" to big-money college
sports.
Walters and Bloom were convicted
in April of signing athletes before


their college eligibility had expired,
and of threatening some of the
athletes with harm if they sought
to break the agreements.
U.S. District Judge George
Marovich said the involvement of the
agents, particularly Walters, with an
organized-crime figure weighed
heavily in his decision to sentence

Walters to five years in prison and
Bloom to three years.
"I wouldn't dream of breaking the
law. That's not who I am," an almost
inaudible Walters told the judge
before sentencing, at times choking
back tears.
The agents were accused of:
-paying athletes thousands of
dollars to sign secret representation
contracts before their college
eligibility had expired, a violation of
NCAA rules.
-threatening some athletes with
harm, including broken legs, to keep
them from breaking the agreements.
-cheating major universities out
of scholarship money through the
NCAA violation, which made the
athletes ineligible to play.
They were convicted of all counts
except two of four mail-fraud
charges, which concerned the
defrauding of the universities.
Marovich said the case was
notable for "the absence of any easily
identifiable good guys.'"'I'do want to
give fair warning" to athletes, sports
agents, university administrators and
others involved in college athletics,
the judge said.
"You may be playing in a different
ball game and it might be called
hardball. ... There is a previously


unrecognized player on the field -
the rule of law."Attorney Dan Webb,
representing Bloom, said after the
sentencing he was gratified that the
judge apparently agreed that "these
universities are a cesspool of
corruption, that they have destroyed
amateur athletics in America."
"I am deeply sorry for what I've
done. If I can be given a second
chance, I'd like it," Bloom said.
Marovich said that although
"there were no heroes" among the
athletes and universities involved in
the trial, Walters and Bloom still
must pay.
The judge ordered each to serve
five years' probation after leaving
prison. Bloom also was ordered to
finish paying back $145,000 to Paul
Palmer, a running back with the
Kansas City Chiefs who had sought
to invest the money with Bloom.
Walters was ordered to forfeit
$250,000 to the government. Walters
and Bloom were convicted April 13
of racketeering, conspiracyand mail
fraud after a five-week trial. Each
had faced up to 55 years in prison.
After the sentencing, Walters and
Bloom were released on bond for 30
days, pending appeals. Lawyers for
both agents said they would appeal
the convictions and sentences.

U.S. pushes compliance checks in START


GENEVA, Switzerland (Reuter) --
The United States said Tuesday it
will push for agreement on ways of
checking compliance with strategic
arms cuts before completion of a
treaty when talks with the Soviet
Union resume Wednesday.
Chief U.S. negotiator at the
Strategic Arms Reduction Talks
Richard Burt told a news conference
that agreement on this issue would
give both sides early practical
experience in verification and speed
up progress on a treaty.
U.S.-Soviet talks on a 50 percent
cut in strategic arms with ranges of
3,400 miles and over began in 1985.
They were interrupted last
November to give the new U.S.


administration time to complete a
defense policy review.
The new focus on verification
appears to be the most important
result of the three-month debate and
Geneva diplomats say it is intended
to put to the test Moscow's
proclaimed openness.
"We are not saying that
verification should become the
centerpiece of our negotiations, we
are saying that they should become a
component of a broad-based effort
to address a whole range of issues' he
added.
U.S. critics of the plan, which
diplomats say would involve trial
tests of verification techniques to be
used later to check treaty


compliance, say it amounts to
"putting the cart before the horse."
Burt said the critics were wrong
and he described the idea as "a very
constructive step which should
facilitate the negotiating process."
"I know that's what President
Bush has in mind in proposing these
measures," he added.
Chief Soviet negotiator Yuri
Nazarkin declined to comment on
the proposal at a news conference
Monday, saying he preferred to wait
for details of what it entailed.
Burt said the Soviet Union had
developed a more open and
constructive approach to verification
in the past few years and the U.S.
sought to.build on this.


The session, the llth since the
talks began, is expected to last six to
seven weeks and will address a range
of issues on which the two sides
remain at odds.
They include Soviet insistence on
linking a START treaty with the
U.S. space-based missile defense
program known as "Star Wars," the
number and type of mobile missiles
to be allowed and the counting of
sea-launched cruise missiles.
"All these are terribly important
issues and so I want to reemphasize
that we see the verification and
stability package as expediting this
negotiation and we will continue to
move ahead on all fronts," Burt said.


A I saved after Soviet cruise ship hits iceberg


Continuedfrom Page 1
Rescue Center in Bodoe, Norway.
Finne said the ship was carrying
943 people and the reason for the
discrepancy was not immediately
known


The Maxim Gorky began taking
on water after hitting the iceberg but
the vessel was firmly grounded and
there was no immediate danger of its
sinking, the spokesman said.
"At one point more recently, the
situation worsened and we feared the
ship might sink but that situation has
now stabilized," he said.
The captain of the Norwegian
rescue vessel Senja said the ship had
two gashes in the starboard hull of 30
inches by 8 feet and 2 inches by half
an inch.
"I wouldn't like to hazard a guess
as to whether she's going to sink or
not," said Capt. Sigurd Kleiven.
Although the vessel struck the
iceberg soon after midnight, it was
not dark at the time because the area
around the Arctic Circle is light
nearly 24 hours a day at this time of
year. The rescue center spokesman
said fog and light rain may have
reduced visibility when the ship
struck at 12:30 a.m. Tuesday.
Some 350 passengers clambered
into lifeboats and were taken to ice
floes before being plucked to safety
by Norwegian and Soviet
helicopters. They later were moved
onto a Norwegian rescue vessel in the

Orbiting tomato

STILLWATER, Okla. (UPI) -
Somewhere out there in space,
12.5 million tomato seeds have

years and catching a few rays.
Scientists polan to recover the

Nelson Ehrlich, director of the
university's Aerospace Education
Service Project, said one thing
scientists want most to know
about the tomato seeds is the
effect of cosmic radiation -- good
and bad.
The seeds, a hardy variety
called "Rutgers California
Supreme," were packed into
aluminum canisters, then placed
in a cylinder the size of a bus and
shot into space in the cargo bay of
a space shuttle in April 1984.
Ehrlich's calculations indicate
the seeds have traveled more than
777 million miles since the launch.

Cardinalto mediate U.S. -Niaragua talks


MANAGUA, Nicaragua (Reuter)
- President Daniel Ortega said
Monday he had asked Cardinal
Miguel Obando y Bravo to mediate
between Nicaragua and the United
States to open the way for dialogue
between the two bitterly opposed
countries.
"I have requested Cardinal
Obando to mediate with President
Bush so that a fluid dialogue may
develop, to lay the foundations for
this dialogue and to enable relations
between the United States and
Nicaragua to be normalized," Ortega
said after a 90-minute meeting with
Obando y Bravo, who has often been
strongly critical of the leftist
Sandinista government.
Ortega added that Washington's
present position did not contribute to
peace.
Obando y Bravo said the church
was ready to take any step it could to
help bring peace to Nicaragua,
racked by eight years of war against
U.S.-backed Contra rebels.


"We will think about the
president's request and give him a
reply," he told reporters.
Obando y Bravo is head of the
Catholic Church in Nicaragua and
president of a National Reconcilia-
tion Committee set up to monitor
Nicaragua's compliance with
regional peace accords.
Ortega's request appears to mark
an improvement in relations between
the Sandinistas and the Catholic
church, which have long been
antagonistic.
Ortega indicated a key objective of
Obando y Bravo's mediation would
be to seek the lifting of a U.S. trade
embargo against Nicaragua imposed
in 1985.
The embargo and Contra war have
exacerbated an economic crisis in
Nicaragua, which is suffering
hyperinflation and falling
production, economists say.
Obando y Bravo and other bishops
have asked Bush to lift the embargo,
saying it hurts ordinary Nicaraguans.

Ortega's conciliatory tone marked.
a change from Saturday when he
accused the United States of wanting
to direct national elections set for
February next year and said visas
would be obligatory for U.S. visitors
from next month.
Ortega and Obando y Bravo said
they had also discussed an amnesty
for all Nicaraguan political
prisoners, for which Obando y Bravo
has campaigned strongly.
Nicaragua released 1,894 members
of former dictator Anastasio
Somoza'a National Guard in March
