WCC strike ends; teachers return to classes

Teachers at Washtenaw Community
College (WCC) returned to work
yesterday after an eight-day strike.
Fall term classes will begin - ten days
late - on Monday.
Negotiators for the college and the
WCC Education Association reached a
tentative agreement early Wednesday,
culminating a 14-hour bargaining

Although an official vote will not be
held until next week, teachers voted
overwhelmingly Thursday night to ap-
prove the proposed contract, in what
teachers' union President Dennis Bila
called "a vote of confidence." Accor-
ding to union bylaws, union members
must have a copy of the proposed con-
tract two days before an official vote
may be held.
HARRY KONSCHUH, President of

WCC, said the Board of Trustees would
vote on or before their monthly
meeting, scheduled for Sept. 25.
The two-year contract calls for a 7.7
per cent salary increase the first year,
and a 6.7 per cent hike the following
year. Insurance coverage will be main-
tained under the Blue Cross and Blue
Shield plan, which the administration
had proposed to eliminate in favor of a
less expensive health t insurance

Bila said that although all of the
members present at Thursday's unof-
ficial election voted to ratify the con-
tract, the mood of the faculty is "one of
great anger." Bila charged the ad-
ministration with using "Gestapo-like
tactics" during the eight-day strike.
THE UNION president claimed the
college administration made

harrassing phone calls, recorded all in,
coming phone calls to the college made
by students and faculty, and sparked
violence that erupted during the strike.

"They went bananas," Bila claimed.
"They were playing war."
WCC President Konschuh denied the

ACLU head Simon: peacetime draft will
remain an important issue for some time

Although opponents of peacetime
registration for the draft won a "spec-
tacular" victory Wednesday in the
House of Representatives, the issue will
continue to surface in Congress, accor-
ding to the head of the Michigan Chap-
ter of the American Civil Liberties
Howard Simon, who spoke yesterday
before a dozen people gathered at Guild
House, referred to the defeat of a bill in
the House Wednesday by a 259 to 155
vote that would have required 18-year-
olds to register for the draft.
"WE ARE into an annual battle on
the draft," Simon prehicted.
After Wednesday's vote against
reviving registration for selective ser-
vice, the House voted to send the
proposal to a presidential committee
for further study.
The position of the Defense Depar-
tment and the- Carter administration is
that peacetime registration for the
draft is unnecessary. Since the House
referred the bill to the administration,

the movement for draft registration in
the House may be dead for a while.
SIMON SAID, however, that the issue
was likely to come to a vote in the
Senate soon, supported by Senators
such as Sam Nunn (D-Georgia), who
sits on that body's Armed Services
He said the claims of-these senators,
that the all-volunteer army was unable
to fill its recruitment quotas, were un-
true. He said the army has never been
more than one and one-half per cent
below manpower levels authorized by
Simon also said registration suppor-
ters believe the all-volunteer army has
led to a disproportionately large num-
ber of minority troops. Simon said,
however, the percentage of minorities
in the Navy and Air Force was lower
than the percentage of minorities in the
population nationwide.
minority enlistments to economic con-
ditions larger than the draft issue, con-
ditions under which more minorities
than whites had inferior job skills and
then enlisted to avoid unemployment.
Although supporters of draft
registration contendf the quality of Ar-
m~y personnel has declined since'the all-
volunteer army was established in 1973,
Simon said statistics showed there are
more soldiers with high school
diplomas today than there were in 1973.
Captain Kenneth Close, spokesman
for the Reserve Officer Training Corps

(ROTC) battalion on campus, confir-
med yesterday army personnel are
more educated today than in 1973.
HE SAID, however, the higher level
of education is due to training
programs offered after enlistment, and
that troops who enlisted today are not
as educated as those in 1973.
Close said the Defense Department is
satisfied with the quality of Army per-
sonnel today. He added that he himself,
outside from his role as spokesman for
the-Army, was also satisfied with the
quality of the troops.
Although only a dozen people came to
listen to Simon's presentation at Guild
House yesterday, he said he was con-
vinced that political activism on cam-
pus had increased since the early 1970s.
He said a "small nucleus" of people
would stimulate interest in such issues
as the draft.
HE STRESSED the anti-war
movement of the 1960s grew very
quickly. "I think they (studednts today)
have to know to what extent the policies
of this country were turned around by
the action of high school and college

students," he said.
Locally, there have been two demon-
strations against proposed
congressional action re-instituting
draft registration, the most recent one
in June drawing some 200 people,
mostly high school students.
The rallies and a letter-writing cam-
paign against registration for selective
service was organized by the
Washtenaw County chapter of the
Committee Against Registration for the
Draft (CART).
Roy Buchele, a Community High
School student who helped organize the
rallies, said yesterday the group attrac-
ts about 25 people to its weekly
meetings, and is planning to organize
another rally against registration soon.
Buchele said before the next rally
there would likely be an effort to in-
terest University students in the anti-
registration movement. He speculated
that college students would not be as
active as high school students because,
"the college students feel that by the
time the draft bill comes out, they'll be
too old."

'U' Cellar board schedules contract vote

We can't afford
to waste it.

After seven months of negotiations,,
the University Cellar board of directors
will vote Monday on the first contract
with the bookstore's employees' union,

according to the board president.
Several minor language
clarifications and a clause dealing with
employee termination procedures were
resolved at a "conducive" meeting with
Industrial Workers of the World (IWW)

Local 660 negotiators last night, board
president Nelson Jacobson said.
Only the issue of whether current
store employees will be exempted from
all union participation requirements
remains to be decided, Jacobson said.

If the board includes a controversial
"grandperson clause" - previously
rejected by the union - in the version
they ratify Monday, the union will meet
again Tuesday to decide on a course of

"We realize that would have been the

best way to go," said Doom. According
Ito Doom, the government's main goal is
to educate * the public about the dollar
coin, and to make it known that it will,
not go away. "We've had projections
that it will take one year, two years,
maybe three or four . . . but the dollar

The Treasury Department, in their
effort to make the dollar coin an

established part of the American
currency, has enlisted the aide of a
group of "Madison Avenue consultan-

October, and Hackel herself will tour
the country to try to keep the dollar coin

Zimbabwe Rhodesian guerrillas
propose new national constitution

LONDON (AP) - The Patriotic
Front guerrillas yesterday proposed a
new constitution for Zimbabwe
Rhodesia that would strip the white
minority of its last vestige of power in
the war-torn country. They warned that
"criminals" from the present bi-racial
government would face trial.
Despite the hard line and tough talk,
however, both the guerrillas and the
government delegation indicated they
were still prepared for serious nego-

The conference is the latest British
bid to end the seven-year-old war and
find a basis on which to grant its rebel
colony legal independence. Since the

talks opened last Monday, opposing
delegations have met face to face for
less than seven hours.
On Friday, the delegations were to
have debated a draft constitution
proposed by Britain, but the opposing
sides avoided this and instead presen-

Minister Abel Muzorewa, simply of-

but it guarantees them an unspecified

Although yesterday's developments
cast doubt on the likelihood of such a
compromise, spokespersons for both
guerrilla chiefs, Joshua Nkomp and
Robert Mugabe, and for Muzorewa said
they were prepared to negotiate their
proposals when the conference resumes
in formal session Monday morning.
