Munson
dies in
jet crash
AKRON, Ohio (AP)-New
York catcher Thurman Mun-
son was killed yesterday af-
ternoon in a fiery plane crash
near an airport runway, a
federal official said.
The crash of the Cessna
Citation jet occurred at 4:02
p.m. about 1,000 feet short of
the runway at the Akron-
Canton Airport, said William
Nantz, a Federal Aviation
Administration duty officer in
New York.
THE CRASH occurred as
the jet made touch-and-go
practice landings and take-
offs. One of the three men
aboard was a flight instructor.

Congress halts
rationing bill

'U'prof will remain
a Carter China analyst

WASHINGTON (AP)- Congress
abandoned yesterday the attempt to
send President Carter a standby
gasoline-rationing bill before the
congressional August recess.
Instead, a House-Senate conference
committee was named to work out a
compromise. Leaders said they hoped
it could go to the president's desk in
September.
THE CONFERENCE was named af-
ter the Senate formally rejected, by
voice vote, a rationing bill approved by
the House on Wednesday.
The legislation would give the
president authority to ration gasoline
and take other fuel-saving steps during
major shortages. But the House sad-
dled it with a number of weakening
amendments.
Senate Majority Leader Robert Byrd
said the House had "emasculated" the
bill. He claimed there was no way
House and Senate differences could be
resolved without sending the bill to con-
ference.
AND SEN. Bennett Johnston (D-La.),
who will be one of the Senate
negotiators on the bill, said, "we had to
weigh symbolism against prac-
ticality." He indicated practicality
prevailed.
At the White House, presidential
spokesman Jody Powell also called the
House-passed bill unacceptable. He ex-
pressed hope that the objectionable
parts could be smoothed out in con-
ference.
What exactly does the administration

object to in the bill?
"I don't have time to list them all,"
Powell said. Generalizing, he said it
had many "ill-advised, unenforceable
amendments."
THE WHITE House would especially
like to see eliminated from the bill a
Republican-backed amendment
weakening the president's 78-degree
thermostat program and restrictions on
when Carter could impose gasoline
rationing.
"The one that's brought over from
the House has been riddled with
loopholes," said the Senate Energy
Committee chairman, Henry Jackson
(D-Wash.), of the House-passed bill. "It

After more than two and a half years
as chief China analyst on President
Carter's National Security Council
(NSC), University Political Science
Prof. Michael Ocksenberg still is not
ready to end his interlude from
academics.
Ockensberg is listed in the Fall term
time schedule to teach Political Science
656, a course on Chinese government
and politics. But since his April request
to extend the leave he took when Carter

was inauguarated in January 1977 was
granted, the time schedule has been
wrong.
"I WAS PLANNING originally on
returning in September, but I post-
poned that return," he said yesterday
in a telephone interview.
Ocksenberg, 40, said he will remain in
Washington because "I felt I wanted to
observe not only normalization, but the
institutionalization of our new relations
with China."

Campus pickets continue as bargaininj
By PATRICIA HAGEN
No progress was made yesterday in
negotiations between the striking cam-
pus skilled trades union and the
University, despite the presence of a
mediator, a union spokesman said.
Negotiators probably will not meet
with the mediator again until next
week, said Jim Murphy, president of
the union representing more than 300
skilled tradesworkers. He said union
members will continue to picket around
campus and the University Hospital.
MURPHY CALLED the meeting in
Detroit with the University bargaining
team and a Michigan Employment
Relations Commission mediator "a
waste of time."
Supervisory personnel will provide
emergency services and repairs during
the strike, University officials said
Wednesday.
The 318-member union went on strike
when its two-year contract with the
University expired at midnight
Tuesday.
THE TRADES council includes elec-
tricians, painters, plumbers, carpen-
ters, masons, heavy equipment
operators, and construction, roofing,
sheet metal, and machine workers on TRADES COUNCIL picketers block the path of a delivery truck outside University Hospital. Al
strikers, the trucks were allowed to proceed to the unloading docks. A hospital spokesperson sail
