Mount St. Helens' lava dome
grows, but explosion risk drops

10

From AP and UPI
VANCOUVER, Wash.-A "non-
explosive eruption" has more than
doubled the size of the steaming lava
dome rising in the center of volcanic
Mount St. Helens' mile-wide crater,
scientists said yesterday.
And, while the lava dome grew more

than 80 feet taller in 24 hours, the U.S.
Geological Survey said chances of
another major explosive eruption in the
near future have diminished.
CHRIS NEWHALL, the Mount St.
Helens hazards coordinator for the
USGS, said the current dome-building
process increased the risk close to the

mountain but apparently has decreased
the risk of a major blowout like the
May 18 eruption which spread ash
across much of the state and left
63 persons dead or missing.
"I think the mountain is still in a very
active state," Newhall added.
"The likelihood of a major explosive
eruption in the immediate future at
Mount St. Helens has decreased in the
last 36 hours," Bob Johns of USGS in
Washington, D.C. said.
USGS SCIENTISTS caution that local
hazards such as rockfalls, small ex-
plosions or small pyroclastic flows exist
as long as the present dome growth con-
tinues," he said. Pyroclastic flows are
streams of superheated volcanic
debris.

program." The guides have been
profitable from the beginning, he ad-
ded.
In 1979, the group formed Sport
Guides, Inc. and began producing a
"much more sophisticated free
program," Kunin said. The size of the
program was shrunk from tabloid to the
present mini-tab format.
KUNIN EXPLAINED that six to a
dozen organizations, such as Media Ac-
cess in the School of Natural Resources,
provide three volunteers each to
distribute guides at the games. Sport
Guides pays the group about $6 an hour
for each volunteer, making the guides
fundraisers for those organizations.
In addition, he added, it was better to
have volunteers rather than hiring
temporary help because "the volun-
teers always show up-even in bad
weather."
There is some disagreement about
whether Sport Guides competes with
the University athletic department's of-

ficial game programs. Last fall, Will.
Perry, assistant athletic director and
long-time editor of the University
program, admitted the guides have
caused "a tremendous loss" in football
program sales. Figures indicate that
sales fell from 25,000 per game to about
17,000 last season, he said.
BUT KUNIN emphasized that the
guide does not compete with the
athletic department. "We look for
regulars. Sixty-five percent of the
people who go to football games are
from Washtenaw County," he said,
and don't buy the official program.
He added, though, "as people become
more familiar with the guides, we get
people who prefer them."
One LSA senior said if it were not for
the guides, she wouldn't know what was
going on during the game. "Who can af-
ford a dollar for a program?" she
asked.
UNIVERSITY Sports Information
Director John Humenik vacillated on
the guide's competitiveness. "We sell

country's most prestigious nuclear engi-
neering program. As a commissioned
officer, you'll get immediate decision-
making authority supervising highly
trained personnel while operating the
most sophisticated nuclear propulsion
plants ever developed. Other engineer-
ing careers can give you this kind of
responsibility, but the Navy will give it
to you sooner.
QUALIFICATIONS: Minimum BS/BA
degrees with 1 year of calculus and
one year of physics. Applicants may be
no more than 2712 years of age (varies
by program). Relocation required. Appli-
cants must pass aptitude and physical
examinations and qualify for security
clearance. U.S. citizenship required.
BENEFITS: Excellent package in-

philosophy. Our numbers aren't' as
high, but they take it home with them.'
After tallying the circulation and the
actual readership, the athletic depar-
tment figures that 300,000 people read
an official program during the season,
he explained.
The competition comes in because
both program groups solicit the same
advertisers, he explained. Numbers
play an important part in advertising,
Humenik said.
On the other hand, he added, "The
student market is a good idea because
they don't buy programs anyhow. It's
not the same as a family coming in for
the game and buying the official
souvenir program. We're shooting for
quality-they're shooting for a different
part of the market."
EVEN THOUGH the guides have a
large circulation and great popularity,
the athletic department has continually
refused press passes to guide writers,
Kunin said.
"There are more column inches (in
the ' guides) than the Toledo
Blade"-one newspaper that bets
passes." He explained that guide
writers still manage to get stories, but
it's more difficult for them.
Kunin added that without a press
pass, entry to the locker rooms is
prohibited, too.
Humenik explained, "This has
nothing to do with competing with us.
The policy at Michigan with regard to
press credentials and the mailing list is
based on circulation and whether the
paper is daily.
"For every 100,requests the Univer-a
sity gets (for press passes), 95 are
rejected," he said. Humenik added that
there are only 250 seats in the press box,
but the demand for them is much
greater. The Big 10 is an important
conference with newspapers from all
over the United States requesting
credentials, he said.
Kunin said, "We try to work with the
University on this. We're just not going
to go away. We're.not going to quit..
