OT a peace cwn er ence at Gie-
neva this fall.
Vance, who leaves late Sun
day on a mission to five Arab
countries and Israel, seemed
less optimistic than President
Carter about the prospects for
getting the parties together at
Geneva.
WHEREAS CARTER said last
week he believes a peace con-
ference will be held in October
"barring some unforeseen diffi-
culty," Vance at no point during
a half-hour news conference in-
dicated similar optimism.
"It all depends on what hap-
pens during the trip," he said.
"I think it's possible that at the
end of the trip we still will not
know."
Vance declined to give any
details of the substantive and
procedural proposals he will be

detpariure.
THE MAJOR stumbling blocks
to a peace settlement are the
role of the Palestinians, the sta-
tus of the Israel-held West Bank
area and the definition of peace.
Some specialists detected a
softening in Vance's policy to-
ward the Palestinian Liberation
Organization (PLO) when he
said, "I do not expect that there
will be any meeting with the
PLO during this trip."
In the past, Vance and other
administration spokesmen have
been more emphatic in ruling
out American contact with the
Pilo.
VANCE ADDED that other
countries have "passed to us

comes from the PLO" concern-
ing its desire to participate in a

position against any dealings
with the P1.O until they have
recognized I s r a e I' s right to
exist.
Vance said if his mission is
inconclusive, further meetings
with the parties may be neces-
sary and likely will be held
when the United Nations Gen-
eral Assembly reconvenes in
September.
On other subjects, Vance said
he will meet with Soviet Foreign
Minister Andrei Gromyko Sept.
7-9 in Vienna for talks on pros-
pects for an arms limitation
agreement.
He also said American inter-
est in selling arms to East Afri-
can nations which feel threaten-

'U' trades council
negotiating wages

By SUE WARNER
Negotiators for the Univer-
sity and the Washtenaw Build-
ing Trades council, will meet
this morning in an attempt to
hammer out a contract agree-
ment before the union's present
contract expires tomorrow at
midnight.
According to Charles All-
mand, University assistant vice
president for academic affairs,
"Progress has been very good
and we're moving toward
agreement.
"WE'RE WORKING closely
together with them (the union)
and we have high expectations
that an agreement will be
reached before the contract ex-
pires," be added. a

HAVEA CHECKUP
IT CAN SAVE YOUR LIFE.

The council represents some
300 skilled trades workers in
cluding electricians, painter
and carpenters.
James Murphy, chief negtia
tor for the trades council said
yesterday wages are now the
major unresolved issue in the
talks.
"ALL THE PROPOSALS are
off the table and now we're
down to money,' Murphy
stated.
Both sides declined to com
ment on specific proposals at
though Murphy said, 'We're
close - it's not like we'iv two
dollars apart."
The Building Trades Council
will hold a general membership
meeting at 7 p.m. tomorrow. If
a tentative contract has been
reached, the union's bargain-
ing team will recommend that

phy, "The only possible way
for an extension is if we have
progressed far enough ahead
or the University agrees to
binding arbitration."
Allmand, however, remained
optimistic about an extended
contract. "We hope for an es-
tension if we can't reach a set
tlement before the expiration
date."
He also said the issue ot hind-
ing arbitration has not been dis-
cussed.
ther than todays s a-io,
continued talks have not been
slated. However, Murpi as
serted, "Our intention is :,isr

During one of my checkups, the doctors found a spot on my

Luckily, it wasn't. Most people are lucky. Most people
never have cancer.
But those who find they do have cancer are far better off
If their cancer is discovered early. Because we know how to
