Only the beginning
The University's latest rising star is finding the
price of power a little tough to pay. Michel Oksen-
berg, recently appointed to be the top China ad-
visor on Jimmy Carter's National Security Coun-
cil, has found life in Washington a touch more hec-
tic than the idyllic days of academe spent in the
University's Center for Chinese Studies here in Ann
Arbor. "During my first week, I only ate dinner
twice," the 38-year-old Belgian-born political scien-
tist said. Stay cool, Doc. You've got four more
years. -

In heat
Amid debating) caucusing, hob-nobbing, back
room cigar-smoking, and other Congressional hob-
bies, the members of our highest legislative body
have also found time to discuss the weather - in-
side the chambers. President Carter's 65-degree
edict has caused no small amount of controversy
among our elected representatives. Sen. Jennings
Randolph (D-West Virginia) held high a thermom-
eter during Senate debate and complained that
the temperature was well above 65. Senate Ma-
jority Leader Robert Byrd agreed, and sure
enough, a chill breeze could soon be felt running
through the chamber. Sen. Patrick Leahy of Ver-
mont, saying it was the first time he felt com-
fortable since coming down to Washington two
years ago, thanked Randoluh for his efforts and
added that he suspected the brisk air might have
a favorable effect on the olantity and quality of
his colleagues' speeches. However, all was far
from peaches and cream.eDring a debate on un-
.ionization of the armed services, Sen. John Culver
(D-Iowa) was heard to grumble, "Maybe if we
had a union we could get some heat in here." Two
days later, Byrd annoynced that the temperature
had stabilized at 63. He declined to say whether
this represented a warming tren.
Obscene scene
In what could become a landmark obscenity case,
Hustler magazine publisher Larry Flynt was con-
victed yesterday of pandering obscenity - selling
material judged to be obscene - and engaging in
organized crime. Flvnt's trial had become a cause
celebre among civil libertarians because it was con-
sidered a niaior test of whether legal proceedings
cond be used to impose nioral standards on a
community. Flvnt's Hustler, perhaps the raunchiest
of raunchy girlie mags, has raised the hackles of
cititkens' groups in and around Cincinnati. Flynt and
Ihis lawyer vainly contended that any legal action
taken against the publisher would be a violation of

his First Amendment 'right to free speech. Stand-
ing before Hamilton County Common Pleas Court
Jdee William Morrissey, for sentencing yesterday,
Flvnt snoke his mind in no uncertain terms. The
judg~e, said Flynt, had "not made an intelligent
decision in the case. I don't expect one now. I
don't exnect any mercy. As Gary Gilmore said.
'Let's do it' ". Morrissey apparently got the mes-
sage and sentenced Flynt to 25 years in the Ohio
Penitentiary and a $10,000 fine.

Calling the University's contract proposals "unacceptable,"
representatives of the American Federation of State, County,
and Municipal Employes (AFSCME) Local 1583 yesterday be-
gan preparations for what could become the union's first cam-
pus strike since 1971.
A mandatory meeting of the union's 2,300 food service,
hospital, custodial and maintenance workers has been set for
next' Sunday, when a strike authorization vote will be taken.
University attorney William Lemmer said last night he is
not surprised at AFSCME's latest move. "They're just follow-
ing the usual procedure," Lemmer said. "It's right out of the
A SPECIAL FLYER is currently being distributed to AFSCME
members saying that negotiators for the University and the
union "are still far apart on promotions, transfers, wages, cost
of' living increases, medical benefits and many other issues."
AFSCME has set February 15 as their final negotiation



Union representative Art Anderson said last night that progress
on the contract talks had come to a halt despite the introduc-
tion of a mediator this week.
"THE UNIVERSITY'S first economic offer is totally un-
acceptable. I think the University has revealed its position on
non-economic issues and ... on economic issues, and that's where
they are going to stay."
Anderson added "there must be a big turnaround" in the
next few days of negotiations in order to avoid a walkout.
Lemmer insisted, however, that negotiations are heading to-
ward a "satisfactory solution."
'"They're very constructive."
AFSCME has always called for a strike authorization vote
during the last week of negotiations, the attorney said. He point-
ed out that at least one national union has a policy of getting
a strike authorization from its members before contract nego-
tiations even begin.

If passed by AFSCME members this Sunday, a strike authori-
zation would simply mean that the decision to strike is left up
to the union's negotiating team. If the negotiation deadline should
arrive without a settlement, workers would not have toy take a
second strike vote.
LEMMER SAID THAT, in some ways, AFSCME strike prepa-,
rations this week can be considered a pressure tactic to get
the University to concede some issues.
"I think that extra special efforts will be made to resolve
problems," he said, but "we can't be intimidated."
At Sunday's mass meeting the union's representatives at
the table will give members the specifics of the contract ne-
gotiations, but "we will give no recommendation" as to wheth-
er a future strike should be approved, said Anderson.
