e celebrates 80th
normal workday


VI marked his 80th birthday yester-
day with a regular day of work while
world leaders lauded his drive for
world peace. He appeared in good
health despite his stated belief that
death is approaching.
President Carter's message of
congratulations cited the Pope's-
'tireless efforts to promote human
rights" and "deep appreciation for
.the moral leadership."
AS ON PREVIOUS birthdays of his
14 - year - old papacy, the pontiff
-shunned excessive public observ-
ance. The white and yellow Vatican
flag used to mark such occasions was
-raised over public buildings, but the
offices remained open.
S"It's a normal workday for him,"
,aid the Vatican press director, the
It. Rev. Romeo Panciroli.
He added there were no private
celebrations either - or even a
birthday cake. The Pope had lunch
with his private secretaries, as he
often does, by-passiig any birthday
observance with relatives.
HOWEVER, the Pope asked the
diocese of Brescia, his birthplace, to
have a wreath of flowers put on the
tomb of his parents.h
*,The only public function of the day
was to inaugurate a 12-ton bronze
-,door for St. Peter's Basilica, a
birthday gift from an Italian sculp-
On the eve of his birthday, the Pope
told some 50,000 well-wishers at St.
Peter's Square that passing years
bring him closer to the end of his
"temporal life.. This obliges us to
ffreat humility . .. We feel the fragil-
r ty of being human."

Pope's close friends say the pontiff is
in good health for a man of his age,
suffering only from arthrosis that
pains his right knee and requires help
as he sits down or gets up.
The Pope's confidants also dis-
count speculation that he may step
down as the spiritual head of the
world's 700 million Catholics because
he is 80, the retirement age he set for
his cardinals.
Thousands of birthday telegrams
poured into the small post office of
the Vatican city-state. President
Carter relayed his "warmest con-
gratulations" and praised papal
efforts to "build a more peaceful
world" and "to pursue justice and
dignity for all mankind."

and prayer.

AFSCME calls "middle-manage-

According to University Chief Ne-
gotiator William, Neff, officials are
considering four companies for the
hospital housekeeping contract.

Many cities and institutions are
turning to sub-contracting for great-
er efficiency in work production, Neff
"'These companies. have handled
other hospitals," Neff said yester-
day. "We're aiming for overall effi-

ciency - it's not just the company
people (we want), but their equip-
ment and materials as well."
HOWEVER, Newman said,
AFSCME objects to the sub-contract-
ing because the union has not been
allowed a voice in deciding which
company will be hired.
AFSCME officials were not al-
lowed to appear before a hospital
executive board meeting dealing
with the proposed sub-contracting.
Newman contends the University
has already decided to sign a con-
tract with Servicemaster, Inc., an
Illinois hospital management firm.
The company presently has con-
tracts at Mt. Sinai, Mt. Carmel and
other Detroit area hospitals.
Neff, however, denied that a
contract with Servicemaster had
been signed.
"I know for a fact that no contract
has been let. Four conpanies are
getting serious consideration and
Servicemaster is one," he said.
A UNION leaflet which appeared in
the hospital yesterday urged union
members to "keep in mind that the

"In view of the present intensity of
the political debate, it is remarkable

that the federal government has not
found it necessary to articulate a
regional spending policy."
Boren said if there is an "an
overreaction" to complaints about the
regional distribution of federal money,
he fears possible federal policies "could
hamper the future growth of the South

Boren said figures first published by

Newman said he is concerned
about a possible loss of union jobs if
Servicemaster is contracted.

pany estimates it will be able' to

IN AN APPARENT effort to make
sure that happens, Carter walked
into the press room an hour later and
delivered a personal statement be-
fore television cameras. The Presi-
dent said:
"The lobbying efforts of the oil and
gas industry on deregulation of
natural gas prices itself show how the
special interests are trying to .block
enactment of the entire energy pro-
gram. As we depend more and more
on energy imports, the special inter-
.ests should not be allowed to jeopar-
dlize our energy future."
C Carter added: "I call on the Senate
'o act responsibly in the interests of
Jhe great majority of Americans to
reject narrow special interest at-
-acks on all segments of the national
energy plan."
"THE CONGRESS has been lob-
bied continuously by the oil and gas
industry to deregulate the price of
iew natural gas," Carter said.
: "... By 1985, the industry proposal
wvill cost the average American

family that heats with natural gas an
additional $150a year.
"It will cost thie consumers almost
$10 billion every year and will
produce little,/if any, new supplies.'.'
CARTER SAID his proposal for
partial deregulation "would give pro-
ducers strong incentives to explore
and to develop new supplies of
natural gas through a price which
will be six times higher than the price
was five years ago.
"That is- enough," the President
clared. -
"It is time for the public interest to
prevail over special interest lobby-

CAR TER CITED a growing deficit
in the nation's balance of foreign
trade, "primarily because of excess
oil imports." The Commerce Depart-
ment said earlier in the day the
deficit grew to $2.7 billion last month.
"I realize that there have been
some preliminary votes in the Senate
which cause concern," Carter said.
"But I have confidence in the
judgment of the Senate and the enrire
Congress, and I believe.., that I and
the American people can continue to
have confidence that the outcome of
these proposals will be acceptable to
me as President and will be a source
of gratitude to the House and Senate
by the American people when ad-
