Contract negotiations between
registered nurses at University
Hospital and University administrators
were still far from completion at the
close of the eleventh bargaining session
between the groups last night.
University Assistant Personnel
Director John Forsyth would not
estimate how long negotiations will
"I have trouble predicting," he said.
"In labor relations, sometimes it seems
like you're a long why away and then
you settle in two days."
THE NURSES are currently working
under the terms of the old contract,
which has been indefinitely extended
spbject to cancellation by either side
with seven day's notice. Neither For-
syth nor nursing spokeswoman Margot
Barron would elaborate on the con-
tingency plan to be used in the event of
More than 1,000 registered nurses are
represented by the six-person
bargaining unit, which includes all
University Hospital registered nurses,
but none of the hospital's ap-
proximately 300 licensed practical nur-
ses. It also does not include
aproximately 200 head,, or assistant
Negotiations for the University ad-
ministrators are being conducted by a
seven-person bargaining team con-
sisting of both nursing administrators
and hospital administrators.
From AP and UPI
Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, and
John Anderson took turns yesterday
boasting who could do the most to
protect the monthly Social Security
check relied on by millions of elderly
On retirement benefits, Carter said in
a state with millions of retirees, "We
have kept Social Security sound and it's
going to stay sound as long as you have
a Democrat in the White House.''
REAGAN, WORKING the same
state, declared, "It is Mr. Carter who
has endangered the economic security
of senior citizens."
And Anderson, in New York, said the
Social Security retirement age should
be raised gradually from 65 to 68 to
safeguard the stability of the system.
He advocated changes to reduce the
cost of living adjustment applied to
benefits to retirees.
If the changes aren't made, he said,
the Social Security system will face
worsening financial pressure as the size
of the work force decreases in relation
to the number of retirees receiving
THE PRESIDENT gave a demon-
stration in the powers of incumbency,
using his Florida campaign stop to sign
legislation distributing $180 million to
that state and others for money it spent
on Cuban refugees.
Carter also criticized Reagan, con-
trary to his Wednesday promise to ABC
News that he was "going to do the best I
can to refrain from any sort of personal
relationship with Mr. Reagan as far as
criticisms are concerned.
"I think it would be a bad thing for
our country if Gov. Reagan were elec-
ted president," Carter said in an inter-
view with a Tampa, Fla., television
"I don't know what he would do in the
White House, but his opposition to the
SALT II treaty, his opposition to
Medicare, his opposition to many of the
programs like minimum wage, unem-
ployment compensation, his call for in-
jection of American military forces into
place after place... .," Carter added.
Meanwhile, Reagan proposed
elimination of the current $5,080 annual
earnings limitation on those receiving
Social Security benefits. He said the
limitation "forces retirees to give up
one dollar in benefits for every two
dollars they make above $5,080."

Pope John Paul II
... more controversy
not to lust
VATICAN CITY (AP)-Pope John
Paul II has whipped up a storm by
bidding men not to look lustfully at
women, not even their wives.
Italian feminists and writers are
calling him a male chauvinist
because of his latest declaration on
"EVERY DAY he 4the pope) is
taking ai step backward to the Dark
Ages,"'author Lucia Druli Dembi
told the Rome daily I Messaggero.
"This pope is turning the Catholic
faith into a punitive faith," said
another writer, Edith Bruck.
At hisweekly general audience
Wednesday, the Polish-born pontiff
offered a sweeping analysis of
Christ's words on adultery, "lustful
desires and adultery committed in
HE SAID, "Adultery in your heart
is committed not only when you look
with concupiscence (strong or ex-
cessive sexual desire) at a woman
who is not your wife, but also if you
look in the same manner at your
"The husband must not use his
wife, her femininity, to fulfill his in-
stinctive desire," the pope said.
"Concupiscence:... diminishes the
richness of the perennial attraction
of persons for interpersonal com-
munion. Through such a reduction,
the other person becomes the mere
object for satisfying a sexual need
and touches the dignity of the person

for a feminist group called "Univer-

remarks "confirm the pope is a

with lustful desires but not a word
about women doing the same," she
Many Italian newspapers yester-
day carried critical analyses of the
papal statement under such
headlines as "The Sin of Looking"
and "Do Not Desire Your Wife."

A record 700 University students met
President and Mrs. Harold Shapiro
yesterday during an open house spon-
sored by the couple.
The tea was located at the president's
house on South University Avenue. For
nearly two hours, students talked with
the.president and his wife.
SOME STUDENTS saw the tea as an
opportunity to show the president
where they stand on various issues. Jim
Schueler proudly sported a home-made
"I Support Tisch" button and attem-
pted to engage Shapiro in a mini-debate
on the proposed tax cut program.
Shapiro, who is strongly opposed to the
Tisch proposal, refused to argue,
mildly stating that his (Schueler's )
position was reasonable, as long as he
didn't mind paying the fullscosts of his
Asked how he liked the location of his
home, Shapiro replied "It's great!
Why, every Saturday night, students
walk by on their way home from the
bars and give all sorts of free advice
about how to run the University."
First-year law students Ed Swails
and Tim Butler had a little surprise for
the president. In place of a simple han-
dshake, they presented the president
with a handful of chocolate chip
cookies. "We live across the street,"
Swails explained, and we just thought
we'd be a little neighborly and bring
over some cookies."
BACKGROUND piano music was
provided by Music School student Eric
Barnes as students filled the 140-year-
old building, admiring antique fur-
niture and munching on assorted
"No Led Zeppelin," observed Derek
Gee, as he inspected the Shapiro's
" Kevin Quin, a spokesman for
Nineteen is Fair attempted to pinpoint
where the president and the University
stand on the current ballot proposal to
lower-the legal drinking age to 19. The
president deftly avoided committing
himself, replying, "I don't think the
University has a policy." When pressed
for his personal opinion, Shapiro
responded, "I don't know where I stand
on this issue, as I really hadn't con-
sidered it before."
FIDDLER ON THE ROOF
"Tradition," "Will I Be A Rich Man?," "Matchmaker," "Evening
Prayer." Beautiful music goes with Tevye the Milkman as he
survives family and political problems in a Russian village and
cheerfully emigrates to America when the Pograms begin.
