MOSCOW (Reuter)-Soviet scientists
have created flying saucers of dust and
water in a laboratory, Tass news agen-
cy reported yesterday.
Tass said researchers at the Soviet
Academy of Scientists were working on
a theory that unidentified flying objects
were just disc-shaped accumulations of
dust and water caused by turbulence in

the air.
They reproduced the right conditions
in a laboratory "and saw a flying
saucer forming before their eyes.",
Tass added that Soviet geophysicists
believed the growing frequency of
sightings of UFO's was due to the in-
crease in air pollution.

State agency under fire

(Continued from Page )
Resources listed at "major polluters."
"IT'S TO THE point where we may
find it cheaper to simply write off the
groundwater supplies of large portions
of southern Michigan," said Jack Bails,
chief of the department's enforcement
division.
In reaction to criticism, mostly from
state and local politicians, there has
been a recent shakeup in the Depar-
tment of Natural Resources and a

declaration of a chemical emergency to
force cleanup of potential cpncer-
causing chemicals.
Michigan has laws that regulate the
manufacture, transport and disposal of
toxic chemical wastes. They were enac-
ted in the past-two years, primarily
because of the state's disastrous ex-
perience with PBB.
PBB, A TOXIC fire retardant known
chemically as polybrominated
biphenyl, was accidentally mixed with
livestock feed distributed across the
state. Thousands of animals were
destroyed and buried.
Despite the new laws, state agencies
have been criticized by local officials
and some legislators.
They say that William Turney. who
was chief environmental protection of-
ficer and a deputy director of the
natural resources department, ignored
their complaints about toxic chemical
spills.

By MARYEM RAFANI
The exclusion of women from high
positions in business is the result of
men's continuing fear of female'
domination in the working world,
womans activist Caroline Mills told an
all women crowd yesterday at the
Business School's Hail Auditorium.
"Men fear competition with women,"
Mills, a former professor at the Univer-
sity's Dearborn campus, repeatedly

asserted during the lengthy speech to
more than 60 women.
Mills pointed out that government
and union practice is not favorable to
women in business. There exists and
occupational segregation by which
salaries decrease in certain fields as
more and more women enter them, she
said.
MILLS WENT on to cite the findings
of a national study that looked at the
public's view of women in a variety of
professions. In every profession, the
majority of the public, including
women, ,said a woman could not do the
job as well as a man. Mills added that
men believe women are less creative,
assertive and ambitious than they are.
"Society has lower expectations of
women than men," she said. "When a
woman becomes successful, it is
usually discounted as luck, yet when a
man becomes successful it is attributed
to his abilities."
Women have had problems securing
a place in the working world since the
days of the cave men, Mills said. "Male
bonding" developed with the movement
of early man into the plains, she ex-

odrihts:
plained. Since men were in charge of
hunting for food, they relied on each
other for survival and excluded women
from theirclosely-knit circle.
OTHER participants in the conferen-
ce expressed agreement with Mills.
"Higher level management is telling
lower level management to discourage
their wives from working in their com-
panies because they can't deal with
them," one woman in the audience
said.
Another woman, however, stated that
in spite of the satisfaction she gets from
working, she is deeply concerned that
she is neglecting her children.
"I think it is a realistic concern.
There is nobody at home anymore.
They need to be raised. Somebody's got
to take care of them," she said.
The conference was organized by the
Michigan Business Women, an
organization of women in business
school. The purpose of the conference
was to direct women in selecting jobs
and to inform them of what to expect
from the business world, said Noel
Unowsky, the organizer of the con-
ference.
