Slime in toyland-
Wracking your brain over what to get your kid
brother or sister for his or her birthday? How
about "Slime", a "gooey, drippy, oozy, cold 'n
clammy" pile of gook that's ,"slime green instead
of lime green" and made mostly of water? Not
durable enough for the little monster, you say?
Why then, pick up "Electro-man," a doll that re-
sponds to light and movement, and his companion
toy, "Zogg the Terrible", whose sole purpose is to
be "destroyed" by his electronic pal. These are
just some of the latest playthings on display at the
annual American Toy Fair in New York. During
the next two weeks, those lovable clowns of the
toy industry will try to unload their creations on
buyers from around the country. This year's crop
leans heavily on electronics, CB radios and TV
show tie-ins. Whatever happened to Tinker Toys?
Anita to arms
Down among the Florida sunshine trees, orange
juice pusher Anita Bryant has found another cause
to yowl about. Bryant, who in the past has scrupu-
lously avoided local -Nsues, has come out of the
citrus tree groves and resolved to raise some p p

over a recently passed Dade County ordinance
banning discrimination against homosexuals in
housing and employment. Miss Oklahoma of 1959
has helped organize a group called "Save our
Children". She says the local gay community is'
"trying to recruit our children to homosexuality."
Local gay rights leaders have fired off some salvos
in return, calling her efforts "bigoted" and "fanati-
cal". They have also tried- unsuccessfully - to
pressure the Florida.Citrus Commission, for which
she has advertised orange juice since 1968, into
takings her ads off the air. Bryant vows that she
will continue her crusade even if my livelihood is
stripped away from me.'

Negotiators late last night extended the deadline for contract
talks between the University and the American Federation of
State, County and Municipal Employes (AFSCME, Local 1583),
saying that both sides were "close enough" to a settlement to jus-
tify the added day.
The deadline exension gives the University and the union at
least one more day to try to avert what could become the first
campus strike by AFSCME sirfce 1971.
AFSCME represents over 2,300 food service, custodial, hospital,
and grounds workers on campus.
Walking out of the bargaining room at 10:25 p.m. after 12 hours
of trading economic compromises across the table, chief Univer-
sity negotiator William Neff and AFSCME representative Art An-
derson said that a midnight deadline would be set aside and nego-
tiators would meet again today.
"We're close enough to a final settlement that it's worth the
delay," said Neff.

agree, on pact today
NEFF SAID on Monday that the AFSCME wage prop9sals were
"way out in outer space." Asked last night if that comment still
held, Neff said, "Well, we're coming in for a landing."
An AFSCME leaflet being distributed to union members this
morning says that the two sides "expect to work out the details"
of a settlement today.
The teams met with a state-appointed mediator Monday and
yesterday, but one will not be present today.

UNIVERSITY BARGAINERS would not say whether they -felt a
settlement could be reached today.
When contract talks began last November, AFSCME was seek-
ing an approximate 15 per cent increase in wages over a multi-
year contract, and the removal of a cap on cost-of-living payments.
Sources said that, at least up until Monday, the University
was offering under a five per cent wage increase, and had refuused
to lift the cap on cost of living paynients.
THE PARTIES already have settled most non-economic issues
in the new contract.
Even as the extension was announced, the University and
AFSCME were making last minute preparations in case a walk-out
were to occur.
The Housing Office has notified dormitory staffs that they
would have to recruit resident staff members and willing students
to work in food service and housekeeping positions if AFSCME
went on strike.

LETTUCE DECISION HIT:

By aP and Reuter
JERUSALEM - .Secretary
of State Cyrus Vance yesterday
assured Israel that the U.S.
would maintain an enduring
commitment to that nation's
security and survival. Vance is
on a six-nation Middle East tour
to survey prospects for new
Arab-Israeli peace talks.
Welcoming Vance at Ben Gur-
ion International Airport, Is-
raeli Foreign Minister Yigal Al-
lon declared it was "high time
the political momentum should
be revived." Israel was not for
stagnation, he said, "on the con-
trary, we are for movement to-
wards peace."
THE STOP in Israel is the
first in a week-long tour that
will take Vance to Egypt, Leb-
anon, Jordan, Saudi Arabia and
Syria. This is his first visit to
the six countries.
In talks with Prime Minister
Yitzhak Rabin and other Israeli
leaders today Vance intends to
explore terms under which Is-
rael would drop its resistance
to negotiating with the Pales-
tine Liberation Organization
(PLO).
The Carter administration
continues to. back Israel's veto
over PLO participation, but that
support could soften if the PLO
accepts Israel's existence.
ABOUT PROSPECTS for a
settlement, Vance said: "We all
know that this will not be an
easy task nor one which will
be quickly achieved.;"
He said he came to Israel
with "one simple message" -
that "the United States is con-
vinced a fundamental underly-
ing principle of our quest for
peace is the enduring trust and
confidence between our two na-

ticns.
"Let there be no question the'
United States is deeply commit-
ted to the survival and securi-
ty of Israel."
IN HIS TALKS, Vance hopes
to persuade Israeli leaders that
a new current of "moderation"
is moving through the Arab
world. He will emphasize the
Carter administration's view
that this presents asunique op-
portunity for a "just and last-
ing peace."
Shortly before Vance arrived,
Allon said in parliament that '
Israel would tell the secretary
of state it was willing to at-
tend a reconvened Geneva Mid-
east conference, and would de-
mand a peace treaty "and nor-
malization of relations" between

Israel' and the Arabs.
This "in return for territorial
compromises whose map has not
yet been determined," he said.
IN AN INTERVIEW with Is-
raeli correspondents in Wash-
ingto'n released on the eve of
the trip, Vance said he had dis-
cussed his mission with the So-
viets and would report to them
after it is completed.
Noting that Moscow is a co-
chair with Washington of the
Geneva conference, Vance said
the Russians "have a respon-
sibility for seeing that we move
toward peace in-the area."
He added: "They have indi-
cated that they wish to cooper-
ate in discharging that rule."

vote

By PATTI MONTEMURRI
Michigan Student Assembly (MSA) last night
condemned the University Housing Council's
(UHC) decision to continue the non-union let-.
tuce boycott, saying UHC undermined the credi-
bility of student government by ignoring a stu-
dent mandate favoring an end to the boycott.
MSA members also voted to protest the review
procedures used by the Dean of the School of
Public Health in his recommendation to termi-
nate the school's Population Planning Dept.
(PPD).
MSA MEMBER Chris Bachelder termed UHC's

refusal to abide by the results of December bal-
lot question where students voted 2-1 to end the
boycott of non-United Farmer Workers (UFW)
lettuce, "politically indefensible".
Students were not against the UFW, rather,
the results of December's ballot question express-
ed dissatisfaction with the quality of lettuce serv-
ed in the dorms, claimed MSA member Irving
Freeman. But since December's ballot question,
the dormitory system has purchased UFW let-
tuce regularly, and students no longer can com-
plain about being served only leaf lettuce, he

Waterman issue to
face Regentsaai
By MICHAEL YELLIN
The proposed razing of Barbour/Waterman gymnasiums
once again promises to be a center of stormy controversy at
tomorrow's public Regents meeting.
Although the Regents have already decided to have the build-
ings destroyed this summer, opposition groups hope to turn the
ruling around' and find some good use for the building.
THE REGENTS HAVE RECEIVED two reports from the
office of Frank Rhodes, vice president for academic affairs, both
of which conclude, "There are many other priority needs which
demand our attention at this time," and recommend the demo-
lition of Barbour/ Waterman.
The reports have emphasized that in the last year there has
been an "over 100 per cent increase in (recreational) space,
resulting from the completion of the Central Campus Recrea-
