DETROIT (UPI)- Saying a continued slump by
U.S. automakers ultimately will hurt Japan, scholars
from the Universities of Michigan and Toyko yester-
day announced a two-year, $1.2 million study of the
nations' auto industries.
Tokyo professor Keichi Oshima told reporters a
partnership between U.S. and Japanese automakers
is "very important for the future of the two coun-
"JAPAN CANNOT have a healthy automotive in-
dustry if the United States continues to suffer
declines in its industry," said Oshima, who is also
vice-chairman of Technova, Inc., a research firm.
"I have a very serious concern that the present
situation would hurt both countries if it continues."
Oshima will direct the study along with Robert
Cole, director of the University's Center for Japanese
COLE SAID the study will try to provide a long-
term understanding of the industry's evolution in
both countries within the context of their overall
economic and political significance.
He said the study will focus particularly on
The Tokyo professor said the two sides are being
brought together by "idealism and practical common
interests." He said each country depends on
technology gleaned from the other.
Oshima said, however, that he thinks the U.S. auto
industry's slump is temporary.
"WE IN JAPAN have a very strong feeling that the
U.S. industry is very strong and now is in a transition
period," he said. "We feel that the future for you is
brighter than just this short-term period.",
According to Cole, the study originated in the
January 1981 Ann Arbor conference on the U.S. and
Japanese auto industries. As a result of the conferen-
ce, Oshima developed the idea for the research in
Japan at the same time University faculty were ex-
ploring similiar research possibilities.
American participants include University
economist and former presidential adviser Paul Mc-
Cracken, former U.S. Ambassador to Japan Robert
Ingersoll, United Auto Workers Vice President
Donald Ephlin and General Motors Corp. director
William Larsen. N;
Japanese officials taking part include Shoichiro
Toyoda, president, Toyota Motore Co., Nobuhiko
Ushiba, a former U.S. ambassador who now serves
as a foreign affairs adviser to the Japanese gover-
nment, and Takashi Hosomi, president of the Over-
seas Economic Cooperation Fund.
The study-which will cost the University and the
Tokyo school $300,000 each per year--is set to be fun-
ded by contributions from GM, Ford Motor Co., the.
UAW, Nissan Motor Co., Toyota, and other firms.
Cole said funding for the first year is nearly secure
but that money is still needed for the final half.

To help the niversity pick a sample

Sheriff's Department agreed to waive
tickets for drivers, who eonsent to be in-

"Our cooperation (in not issuing
tickets) makes the program a little

Sheriff Thomas Minick.
Both safe and, unsafe drivers are
chosen for the study, Marks said. The

For example, if a driver runs a red

BRUSSELS, Belgium (AP) -
Socialists were, tied with the long-
dominant centrist Christian Democrats
in Parliament seats as a result of
national elections, but it was not clear
yesterday if they could set aside their
regional rivalries to form a new
Sunday's election, called because of
the collapse ofthe center-left coalition
over economic issues, gave the
Socialists a gain of three seats for a
total of 61 in the 212-seat Parliament.
That is the same number of seats 'now
held by the Christian Democrats, whose
losses in the industrialized, Dutch-
speaking, north and economically
sluping, French-speaking south totaled
nationwide- 15 more seats from the
previous Parliament for a total of 52, to
be the next major force behind the
Socialists and Christian Democrats.
The new distribution of legislative
seats indicated Belgium's 32nd gover-
nment since 1944 will be either center-
left or center-right coalitions, political
observers said yesterday.
Conservatives and Socialists
disagree on ways to deal with
Belgium's serious financial problems,
including a forecase 1982 budget deficit
of $5 billion and 12.8 percent jobless rate.
