State settles with
Hooker Chemical Co.

LANSING (UPI)-Attorney General
Frank Kelley said yeterday the state
has defused an environmental time
bomb through a $15 million-plus clean-
up settlement with Hooker Chemical
Co., called the most technically com-
prehensive ever.
Kelley and Hooker President Donald
Baeder signed the agreement on the
out-of-court settlement at a news con-
ference in the Attorney General's of-
fices, but ,final approval r'ests with a
circuit court judge. It is expected to
come next week.
THE AGREEMENT may end a long-
standing battle between Hooker and the
state over the alleged pollution of
Muskegon County's White Lake
through seepage and discharges of
toxic chemicals from the firm's Mon-
tague plant. A number of chemicals
have been found in the lake and its fish
have been ruled unsafe for human con-

The Case for General
Among the various leading business
schools, there is a diversity of programs
available. Some require the student to
choose a major such as marketing or
finance or any of a number of other
functional areas. In some programs it is
possible to evade certain areas, the
understanding of which is essential to the
general manager.
The MBA curriculum of the Tuck School
emphasizes breadth of learning and offers
basic istruction in each of the major
areas of business administration. The
first-year courses, required of all degree
candidates, include work in organization
structure and human behavior, market-
ing, operations analysis and manage-
ment, economics, accounting and fi-
nance, industrial relations, probability
theory, statistics, computers, and busi-
ness environments. In the second year,
Business Policy, the only required
course, ties together the learning of the
first year. The eleven remaining electives
may be selected from a wide selection of
courses in various fields. No major or
concentration is required, but there is
ample opportunity to study in depth such
areas as accounting, financial manage-
ment, marketing and organizational be-
The Tuck graduate is flexible; he or she
has the skills required for entry-level
positions in the major functional areas as
well as the broad understanding of busi-
ness essential to the general manager,

As part of the ceremony, Baeder
handed over a $1 million check from
Hooker to pay for the state's costs, in
surveillance of the pollution problem.
Occidental Petroleum Cor.,
Hooker's parent firm, agreed to put up
$2 million to guarantee complianceby
its subsidiary and mae an allegedly
unprecedented agreement to accept the
jurisdiction of the Michigan courts.
KELLEY SAID the complex clean-up
program agreed to in the settlement
will eliminate the possibility of future
environmental damage from the plant.
State Natural Resources Director
Howard Tanner also attended the new
conference and said he expects a
gradual'improvement in White Lake;
estimating its fish may be safe to eat in
less than 10 years.
Baeder, speaking for Hooker, did not
admit the lake had been damaged by
his firm, but did say it was doing the
responsible thing in agreeing to clean
up toxic chemical problems at the
THE AGREEMENT provides for the
burial of all the plant's chemical wastes
in a sophisticated, clay-lined vault and
purification of groundwater under the.
plant through a system of barrier walls
and filters.
It establishes a court-approved
monitoring system to assure the quality
of air and water "in perpetuity" and
provides an unprecedented convenant
barring the sale of the property or any
change in its use without the written
permission of the attorny general.
Kelley praised Occidental Chairman
Armand Hammer who, he said, "could
have raised legal defenses that I could
never have penetrated."

Young said $3.2 million will be spen

stalling new pipes, a new ventilation
system, electrical services and
elevators. Another $1.4 million will be
used for program imprdvements, pain-

out that only $790,000 was allotted for
refurnishing public areas, as well as-for

Personnel changes include appoin-

January 1978. Wells, who has been the
Union's general manager since 1970,
will work on special projects coner-
