Gov't relocates
85% of Cubans

MIAMI (AP)-Federal officials say
they have resettled 85 per cent of the
Cuban refugees who fled their
homeland in an illegal boatlift, but that
still leaves about 15,000 "hard core"
refugees in government camps with lit-
tle chance of finding American spon-
sors.
The government in just four months
has managed to find homes for most of
the 122,000 Cubans who fled their
homeland in an illegal boatlift this
year, according to the State Depar-
tment.
BUT ONE RESETTLEMENT
worker, who asked not to be identified,
said, "Now we're down to the hard
core-the criminals, the homosexuals,
the mentally ill, the diseased that
nobody wants."
In addition to those living in gover-
nment camps, officials say thousands
of others are living in condemned hotels

and other inadequate shelters, many in
squalor and fear.
Overloaded fuses, faulty electricity,
broken fire alarms and sewer gas leaks
make the motels and hotels unsafe,
Miami Beach officials said. Unsanitary
conditions could lead to widespread
disease, they added.
"NO ONE ENJOYS this, but what are
we going to do, walk out and let the
building burn up?" said Curt Wild,
chief code enforcement officer for the
city. "We can't permit the people to live
in these conditions."
Miami Beach Mayor Murray Meyer-
son said, "It's out of hand. If things are
not corrected in the near future, then
perhaps the mayor of this small city
must raise the bridges like Checkpoint
Charlie and check every one who comes
in.
Nearly 200 refugees have indicated
their desire to return to Cuba.

IN BRIEF

United Press International reports
Tax cut vote still in jeopardy
LANSING-Ingham County Court Judge James Giddings refused
yesterday to grant a request that he revoke his order threatening to bar the
Tisch tax cut amendment from the fall ballot. Another appeal is expected
Monday.
Giddings' decision came amid a flurry of confusion over whether a
deadline had passed for official certification of the Tisch proposal, which
would cut property taxes by 50 per cent. The Board of State Canvassers had
been expected to give the measure final approval yesterday, which was the
last day for certifying proposals for the ballot, but it took no action on the
Tisch plan due to Giddings' order.
Giddings ruled the Tisch petitions were legally invalid because they
failed to disclose all provisions of the state constitution his measure would
alter.

baby for automobile
FLEMINGTON, N.J.-A young couple that attempted to trade its
14-month-old son for the $8,000 Corvette is being held in a local jail.
Flemington Municipal Court Judge Jeffrey Martin said James and Pamela
Greene were charged with endangering the welfare of a child and selling a
child. If convicted, they could be sentenced to from three to five years in jail
and fined $7,500 on each offense, the judge said.
"I've traded a lot of things in my life, but I've never traded a baby," said
Italo Patinella, owner of Patinella's Auto Sales in nearby Baptistown, the
man whom the Greene's attempted to pawn their child with.
Wine workers strike in Cal.
SAN FRANCISCO-On the brink of the grape harvest, 1,500 California
workers who process, bottle, and package nearly half the nation's wine, left
their jobs yesterday to begin the first strike ever in the domestic wine in-
dustry.
The strike is against E & J Gallo Co. and United Vintners, two of the
world's largest wineries..Demands include a 30 per cent increase in wages
over the last three years, and the nixing of a proposed extension of the em-
ployers' "probationary period" for new workers from 30 to 40 days.
Reportedly, there is little trepidation on the part of the two companies:
Both have large inventories on hand, and only a long strike would affect.:
sales. Although mediators have been in contact with both sides, no face-to-
face talks have been scheduled.
Mondale assails GOP stance
SAN FRANCISCO-Proclaiming that it is "cynical" to measure a
nation's strength solely in terms of arms, Vice President Walter Mondale
assailed Ronald Reagan's foreign policy platform yesterday as "naive and
dangerous." Besides, the vice president added, the U.S. is indeed the
"strongest nation on Earth."
"Militarily, economically, politically, socially, and I believe morally,
the United States is not only superior than the Soviet Union. We're the
strongest on earth," Mondale said in a speech to Commornwealth Club in San
Francisco. He said that "A strength that is limited to arms implies a
cynicism we reject. Pbwer without commitment to human values is
dangerous."
Although Reagan's name was not mentioned in the address, an aide
acknowledged that "it's fair to say" that the comments were a response to
Reagan's "increasing stridency" in discussing defense issues. Yesterday's
speech was reportedly the first of about 10 the vice president will make
regarding the campaign.
Swiss youths riot in Zurich
ZURICH-About 600 youths, protesting the closing of a neighborhood'
recreation center in this Swiss capital turned the affluent Bahnofstrasse,
shopping district into a smoking, glass-sirewn battleground yesterday.
Police said the rioters threw fire bombs, demolished shop windows,!
smashed sidewalk cafe furniture and erected barricades to stop traf-,
fice-causing damage estimated at over $200,000. The unrest, which has con,
trasted with Switzerland's age-old reputation as a calm, politically conten-
ded nation, followed similar, but far less violent uprisings chat have oc:
curred throughout the summer.
Zurich politicans and sociologists attribute the disenchantment of many.
Swiss youths to the nation's wealthy, elite lifestyle, which the protesters
claim is resilient to change and discriminatory against lower classes.
