Bad location
A San Jose couple apparently feels its recently purchased vending
machine network is not reaching its full potential of customers.
Richard and Elaine Cresswell bought a male contraceptive business
from United Industries International of Oakland for $5,000, but are
now suing the company for fraud. Among other reasons for the
$100,000 damage suit, the Cresswells cited the location of most of the 20
machines: They are located in women's restrooms where the
product's user's are not likely to venture.

Show me the light
One would think that turning on the lights could not be all that com-
plicated. But apparently there's a trick to turning on the runway lights
at the Upper Peninsula's new Chippewa County Airport. Roger Fisher,
executive director of the EasteFn Upper Peninsula Transportation
Authority, left the airport under the control of his unnamed assistant
Thursday. But when darkness fell and the runway lights needed to be
turned on, the task proved to be too great for the assistant. The North
Central Airline plane carrying Fisher back to the airport had to be
diverted to Pellston because the runway lights weren't on. Fisher had
to take a bus back to the airport to show his assistant how to turn on the

If you're still basking in the glow of yesterday's glorious sunshine
(like those in the photo below), today may just shock you back into
reality, but not before teasing you a bit. The morning will be gorgeous,
as the temperature will reach 63, and there will be a pleasant wind un-
der cloudy skies. But then things will take a turn for the worse. The
mercury will be dropping steadily all afternoon, and there is a chance

AMC, Renau

DETROIT (AP)-American Motors
Corp. (AMC) and French automaker
Renault, both steeped in automotive
history, took a first step yesterday
toward the possible joint manufacture
of cars.
In what would be an unprecedented
venture in the United States, the com-
panies said they had signed a tentative'
agreement to join forces in distribution
of cars, design of future productsand
possible assembly of Renault cars in
AMC plants.
IN PARIS, Renault was quick to em-
phasize that the agreement was not
final. "This is only a cooperation
agreement. We are not looking for a
merger," a spokesman said.

The linkup of struggling AMC with
Renault, the eighth-largest industrial
enterprise outside the United States,
capped months of speculation about the
future of the smallest U.S. automaker.
The heads of the two companies said
they had "signed a memorandum set-
ting forth the basic principles of a
proposed agreement."
The plans include joint distribution of
cars in the United States and Canada,
development of future product plans for
passenger cars, and "consideration of
the eventual manufacture of one or
more Renault cars in AMC's assembly
THE AGREEMENT also called for
sale of AMC Jeep vehicles through
Renault dealers and sale "as soon as

it may
possible" of Renault's tiny Le Car by
AMC dealers in North America.
The companies hope to sign a binding'
agreement within the next few months,'
said AMC President Gerald Meyers
and Renault Director General Bernard
Vernier-Palliez. The two scheduled a
Saturday conference at AMC headquar-.
The announcement ended nearly a
year of speculation that AMC would
either end its money-losing car'
operations or join forces with a foreign
carmaker. Meyers, who just took over
as chief executive in October, fueled the
rumors in February when he said AMC
hoped to complete a deal this year.
MEYERS IS the one who's going to 1
get the credit for this," said Arvid

Jouppi of Colin, Rochstin Co., a New
York investment research firm. "Many
of us doubted he was really working on,
anything that concrete."
The company's share of the market
for U.S. -built cars shrunk to 2 percent
in 1977 and its car sales plummeted 25
percent, despite the third best year
ever for the U.S. industry as a whole.
Plagued by old models and a lack of
resources to advertise, stock parts or
design new models, AMC managed a
slim profit last year only on the
strength of its Jeep and specialty
vehicle sales.
While AMC had sales last year of $2.2
billion, Renault sales totaled $9.35
billion. Renault employment is 240,000,
while AMC's is 27,000.

ter, we're going to continue to pollute
the river, and until we get it, we can't
build any new housing or businesses,"
he said.
Another of the major issues on which
the candidates disagree is housing.
"THE ONLY way we're going to whip
the housing problem is to get private
developers in here, and to do that we're
going to have to streamline the plan-

ning process," Belcher said.
"There's no way private developers
can build the kind of housing we need
without federal incentives," Wheeler
said. He said he supports Section 8
housing, where the federal government
provides all rent over and above 25 per
cent of a family's income.
Perhaps the most marked difference,
between the two candidates is their

willingness to tap
nment for aid.

Carter's plane said the President will
underline U.S. support for the Anglo-
American plan to establish black
majority rule in Rhodesia. The Anglo-
American plan would include Nkomo
and Robert Mugabe, also a leader of the
Patriotic Front's guerrilla alliance.
" Nkomo and Mugabe have refused to

reached by Smith and three black
moderate leaders in Rhodesia.

Belcher, however, sees the city as
more independent. "Somewhere down
the line we've got to have enough guts Y
to get up. and do some of these things
ourselves," he said. "I don't see HUD
and HEW running up and down the
streets filling in our potholes.
THE CANDIDATES hold different
views on the two ballot proposals -
"Truth In Renting" and "Fair Rental
Information." '
Wheeler supports both proposals. He
initiated his own proposal this'summer
to mandate that all landlords in the city'
had to warn tenants on their leases that
some lease clauses might be illegal.
Wheeler has said that if the ballot
proposals are defeated, he will do
everything he can to make them law.
. Belcher, while he has been unclear as
to his true position on the proposals in
many campaign appearances, opposes'-
both ballot proposals. He sees the ren-
ting booklet as "confusing" and does
not feel it will benefit anyone. He also
does not see the necessity of a truth in
renting clause.
"I would rather see action taken
against those who have illegal leases,"
Belcher said.

meeting with crusaders for human
rights and critics of Brazil's military
government. Carter, who also con-
ferred with leaders in Venezuela,
returns home Monday.'
Before leaving Rio, the President
said human rights improvements in
Brazil are "very encouraging." But
Assistant Secretary of State Terrence
Todman, traveling with Carter, said
that Brazil and the United States
agreed to disagree about human rights.
At the start of his 45-minute session
with the government critics, who in-
cluded two Roman Catholic cardinals,
Carter said in the presence of reporters
that Brazilian supreme court justices
had told him Thursday in Brasilia they
were dedicatedto human rights.
"THE CHIEF justice made a very
clear statement toward dedication to.
human rights," the President said.:"He
said they, the justices, were the most
liberal elements in the court system. It

was very encouraging to us.
"Since my last visit here, there has
been, I think, great excitement building
up about human rights, and the people
are expressing themselves very
clearly," Carter said. At that point, the
reporters were ushered out.
After the meeting, coincidentally{
held on the 14th anniversary of the
military coup which deposed a populist
civilian government in Brazil, one of
the cardinals, Paulo Evaristo Arnes of
Sao Paulo, joined Carter on his ride to
the airport.r
ARNES TOLD reporters waiting to
see the President off that the meeting
"was very good for both countries" but
that no specific cases of human rights
violations were discussed.
"He allows me to write him directly
or to call directly to the United States if
I have some cases that would be more
important," said thq cardinal, who met
Carter last year when the President
delivered a foreign policy address 4t
Notre Dame University.
In an airport interview, Todman said
Brazil. and the United States "agree
that there is a difference in emphasis on
human rights in each country, and"
there is also a difference in concepts."
These differences, Todman said, cen-
ter on "whether the international
community has a right to decide on
human rights, or whether it is strictly a
domestic question." He said that Brazil
is more inclined toward the latter

Remington noted that "we're at a less
hysterical phase" now in the study.
However, he said in order to discover a
way to rid the body of the chemical will
require a number of scientific
breakthroughs. "Disasters will con-
tinue to occur so we better try to learn
the basic science necessary to relieve
the body burden," he said.

In addition to the phone survey and
connected clinicals studies, Dr. Isadore
Bernstein, professor of environmental
health in the School of Public and
biolchemisty in the Medical School, will
head a study to determine the degree of
retention of the chemical in the body.
Michigan State University is
awaiting funding for an environmental
examination of PBB effects. Dr. Irving
Selikoff of New York's Mt. Sinai
Medical School who headed a 1976 study
of Michigan farm families exposed to
high levels of PBB, will set up clinics to
examine 3,000 adults and 1,500 children
involved in the University's general
population health study.

Experts say the problem with fusing
hydrogen atoms to obtain energy is get-
ting the atoms together, because they
all have a positive electrical charge and
therefore repel each other.
ACCORDING to Donald Woodbridge
of KMS Fusion, this can be overcome
through the use of high-powered lasers.
In laser fusion, a high-intensity beam
of light is used to heat the hydrogen
atoms up, thereby releasing high-
energy neutrons. "By absorbing the
neutrons," says Wodbridge, "you can
recapture the energy and put it to use."
However, he adds, "There are
problems in getting sufficiently power-
ful lasers for the process."
According to Woodbridge, if this,
process was used with all the hydrogen
in a gallon of seawater, you would get
the equivalent amount of energy
produced by burning 300 gallons of
ONE OF THE dangers of laser fusion,
according to University nuclear

engineering professor Chihirq Kikuchi,
is the significant level of radioactivity
that is characteristic of some hydrogen
isotopes. However, Woodbridge con-
tends that there are adequatejfacilites
to safeguard against radiation leaks.
Another danger is the escape of the
high energy neutrons which, says
Woodbridge, "could produce changes in
people's tissues. But since we want to
capture all of them anyway this is not a
great problem," he notes.
