GEO to discuss 'U'
plan offering GSAs


Leaders laud hijacked jet rescue

Members of the Graduate Employes
Organization (GEO) will meet tonight
to decide what action they will take on a
University proposal to implement
GEO's 5.75 per cent wage increase im-
A motion recommending that GEO
accept the University's offer will be
presented by the GEO stewards com-
mittee at the meeting.
The motion resolves that GEO accept
the increase provided that:
" the agreement not be used as
evidence in any judicial or quasi-
judicial proceeding;
* the agreement not influence either
party's position in current litigation
before the Michigan Employment
Relations Commission (MERC);
* GEO waives the right to file an un-
fair labor practice (ULP) charge
against the University pay raise issue.
_ Speakers for and against the
resolution will present their positions
and discussion of the issue will follow at
the Rackham Amphitheater meeting.
According to GEOA President Mike

pay hike
Clark, the membership may decide to
accept or defeat the proposal tonight or
vote for a referendum.
If GEO votes to bring the question to
a referendum, GSAs will vote on the
issue next week.
"PERSONALLY, if we don't have a
large meeting, I would like to have the
whole .membership vote," Clark said
yesterday. "This is an important issue
and all GSAs should vote on it."
Clark said the issue has important
implications for GSAs.
"It's a question of principle or a
question of starving," Clark said.
"We'll have to see which of these in-
stincts really get to the membership."
Originally, the University had plan-
ned to place the 5.75 per cent increase in
an escrow fund until its current appeal
before MERC has been resolved.
The University is appealing an
August MERC ruling that the Univer-
sity must recognize GSAs as employes'
and return to collective bargaining with
The ruling is the result of ULP charge
filed by GEO last November.

By The Associated Press
World leaders showered praise on the
West German government while Ger-
mans celebrated in the streets yester-
dayfor the daring Entebbe-style rescue
of 86 hostages from a hijacked Lufthan-
sa jet in Somalia. A 10-year-old boy was
glad to get his "mommy" back home.
"It was indeed a salvation in which.
all free men rejoice," said Israeli
Prime Minister Menahem Begin, whose
nation is the leading advocate of tough
treatment for all terrorists.
"IT'S LIKE New Year's Eve, like a
birthday!" exclaimed Paul Brod of
West Germany whose wife was among
the hostages threatened with death by
the four Arabic-speaking terrorists.
Their young son Mike had waited out-
side the German Chancellery during
the 4%-day ordeal with a sign around
his neck pleading: "I want my mom-
In Rome and Athens, hundreds of left-
wing extremists demonstrated yester-
day glorifying the suicides of three
anarchists in German jails and deman-
ding "Death to Schmidt" for ordering
the commando raid.
The hijacking raised a storm of
protest over lax airport security
measures and signaled what may be a
new international policy not to buckle
under air pirates' demands in exchange
for hostages.
THE PRESIDENT of the Inter-
national Federation of Airline Pilot's
Association urged the union's 64 mem-
ber associations yesterday to stage a
worldwide 48-hour strike starting Oct.
25 to dramatize demands for more
protection against hijackers. Others
urged stronger deterrents.
"The death penalty should be in-
troduced for terrorists who in cold
blood play with innocent peoples'
lives," said Capt. Kurt Ivarsson, head
of the federation's Stockholm chapter.
Leaders of governments
congratulated West German Chan-
cellor Helmut Schmidt and his, ad-
ministration. In Washington, President

Carter lauded the "courage of their
decision" and said the commando raid
"struck a blow" for every nation
vulnerable to air terrorism.
Giscard D'Estaing hailed the end of the
hijack siege as "a victory for
democracy" and Japanese Justice
Minister Mitsuo Setoyama, whose
government met the demands of
Japanese hijackers two weeks ago, said
the raid "showed how to prevent a
U.N. Secretary-General Kurt
Waldheim said: "This terrible ordeal
underlines once more the necessity for

governments to agree on effective
measures against criminal-.terrorism,
the taking of innocent hostages and the
hijacking of civilian aircraft."g d
West' Germany had sought and-
received support from a half-dozen-
governments, including Somalia's
Marxist regime, before ordering the
commando squad on its nighttime
rescue mission. Schmidt latersent per-
sonal telegrams thanking the leaders
for their crucial backing.
"A WAVE OF solidarity turned the
world around," West German delegate
Per Fischer told the Belgrade con-
ference meeting to review the 1975.

Helsinki accords on East-West security
and cooperation.
"Something similar,. or even worse.
can happen tomorrow, in our country or
any. other country," Fischer warned.
"International society must defend it-
self energetically against this, kind of
pressure. When the kidnapers know
they can't find support anywhere,,
will perhaps abstain from their d Y

In search of

Sophomore nursing student Judi Seb-
ring picks her plants like she picks her
"I pick them by seeing which ones
have more personality," explained
Sebring. "They're more sensitive."
SEBRING HAD plenty of plant-
picking practice yesterday, care of the
Panhellenic Association's yearly
foliage fiesta. Proceeds from the
sorority association's plant sale, which
began in the Union ballroom yesterday
and will run through Thursday, will go
to the new children's psychiatric clinic
at the University Hospital.
Another plant shopper surveyed the
aisles of strange-looking species and
shook his head. "I have to look for a
plant for my mother," he explained.
"She doesn't go for these weird ones."
Some students, however, came in
search of the usual. "I'd buy a cactus to
WASHINGTON (AP)-Being a coun-
terfeiter isitough work.
According to National Geographic, a
lot of work goes into making money.
The design of each bill is cut into steel
plates, but most of the detail work is
done by hand. Several engravers work
on each plate, some specializing in
faces, others in lettering.
Once the plates are made, the paper,
a special type impregnated with tiny
red and blue threads, goes through the
presses three times-once to print the
back, once to print the front and a third
time to print the serial numbers, letters
and seals on the bills.
The money comes off the presses in
sheets of 32 bills each, at the rate of
222,720 bills an hour. Each sheet must
be examined by an inspector, cut into
bills and checked by electric eye to see
that it has been properly cut. Finally
the new bills are stacked into packets of
100 each, ready for shipment to Federal
Reserve Banks which distribute the
new money for circulation.

varieties by purchasing smaller, more
inexpensive plants.'
"I like small plants because I can
watch them get bigger," one youngster
explained. "My favorite one is the
Venus flytrap because I can watch
them catch flies."
For those who suffer from wilting
begonias or shrinking violets; a plant
doctor is on hand to answer any
questions,about ailing plants.
