operator, Rochester Gas & Electric Co.,
;aid earlier in the morning that there
vas "no danger to the public at this
Ime."
By midday, Bassett said the leak was
'solated and terminated."
Radiation checks showed the "dose
raes" to be no higher than what could
beexpected in nature, Sullivan said.
S:rface contamination is not expected
to ecur," he said.

"WE ARE TOLD that all systems
worked as they were supposed to
work," said Bassett. "The company
said all the bells went off when they
were supposed to and that the shutdown
system operated properly."
Plant, nuclear and county officials
held an "unusual event" drill to test
emergency plans just last week and of-
ficials said they detected several shor-
tcomings in emergency procedures.
Ginna, built by Westinghouse in 1970,
has been in operation for 11 years and

last week's drill was the first in its
history. The drills were ordered by the
federal government following the Three
Mile Island accident in Pennsylvania in.
1979.
According to Jack Bryan, public in-
formation officer for the state Disaster
Preparedness Commission, radiatin
was released in bursts, totalling thee.
minutes' worth. The releases occurred
over one hour, said Jay Dunkleberger,
director of the Bureau of Nuclear
Operatins of the state energy office.

Unarmed robbery
A robbery occurred at the Ann Arbor
Bank and Trust drive-in office on 206 W.
Huron Jan. 22, police said yesterday. A
customer was waiting in his car for the
canister to return through the teller-
tube when a thief ran up, grapped the
canister, which contained a small
amount of cash, and fled on foot. Police
are looking for a male suspect, 5 ft. 10
in. tall.
Residences burglarized
Thieves entered an apartment in the
2000 block of Pualine between Jan. 6
and Jan. 22, police said yesterday. The
robbers forced open a sliding glass door
and stole a turntable, pictures and
jewelry worth $340.
Burglars took a television set valued
at $100 from an apartment in the 700
block of Packard between 11 a.m. and
12 p.m. Jan. 23, police said yesterday.
There was no sign of forced entry.
Robbers forced open a window and
took $1025 worth of stereo equipment
and clothing from a residence in the
1100 block of N. Maple, police said
yesterday. The theft occurred between
2:30 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. Jan. 22.
Auto crack-up
Icy road conditions caused a rear-end
collision on Ann Arbor-Saline Rd. just
north of Eisenhower on Jan. 23, police
said yesterday. The accident resulted
in two injuries.
Gavin Wright, 38, and Cathe Wright,
39, of 1315 Fountain, Ann Arbor were
southbound on Ann Arbor -Saline Rd.
and had stopped in the roadway
because. ice prevented them from get-
ting up a hill, police said. A car driven

car in the rear.

Ashe talks at business

(Continued from Page 1)
minoities to consider careers in in-
suraice. a
"Mtny of today's black students are
the frst in their families to go to
colleg," Ashe said. "They need to be
hand4d the knowledge tht many give
them a edge in te business world."
Ashesaid he would like to see blacks
break into the formerly-segregated
busines areas of banking and finance.
AS 4RT OF his trip to Ann Arbor,
Ashe wil speak again today at a
semirnr for minority and disabled
studets sponsored by the Office of
Caree Planning and Placement.
"Lage corporations are looking for
qualifd black representatives," Ashe
said. "My work at Aetna emerged
througi their sponsorship of a major
tennis event," he said, adding that

other companies also seek his services.,'
Despite the quota system and other
attempts os integrate blacks into new
fields, Ashe said he still believes
minorities are discriminated against.
"AT AN UNCONSCIOUS level
there are still subtle forms of
segregation," Ashe said. "Large corp-
orations tend to channel blacks into
publicrelations, community affairs and
other highly visible fields," he said.
Ashe said he actively discourages
blacks from entering professional
athletics. The concept of blacks in
sports needs to be changed he said.
"Blacks are over-reporsented in spor-
ts," said Ashe. "We make up 80 percent
of the NFL and only 2 percent of the
engineers."
In, addition to his work as a con-
sultant, Ashe teaches a class at the

program,
predominantly black Florida Memorial
College. the class is entitled, "The
Black Athlete at the Black College in
American Life."
"I lecture to the students once a mon-
th," Ashe said. "I attempt to in-
terrelate the roles of blacks in sports,
business and the community."
A 1962 graduate of UCLA, Ashe said
he encourages blacks to get a college
education, but he doesn't feel that it is
mandatory for financial success. He
said he believes trade can be more
satisfactory to students ,who do riot
want to go to college.
In his own experience as a
professional athlete, Ashe said he did
not believe he was discriminated
against, "In tennis, color didn't mat-
ter," he said "you can either play the
sport or you can't."

Polish
military
may ease
martial law

WARSAW, Poland (UPI) - Military chief Gen.
Wojciech Jaruzelski said yesterday restrictions for
Poles may be lifted by the end of February but he
warned Poland will never return to the "status quo"
that existed before martial law.
The military regime "has become a bridge which
makes possible a transition to stabilization in our
country," Jaruzelski said in his first speech to
parliament since he imposed martial law Dec. 13
when Poland "was at the brink of an abyss."
BLAMING THE Solidarity independent trade union-
for "abuses" that made martial law necessary,
Jaruzelski said, "it is not possible to return to the

status quo."
MIlitary rule "cannot be treated as an operation af-
ter which everything will return to the previous
state."
The ggneral told parliament there are Poles still in-
terned, with 1,760 already released and more to be
released soon and added that opponents of the regime'
would be permitted to emigrate - and no one would
be deported.
But Jaruzelski said, "provided no unforeseen cir-
cumstances arise and no illegal actions are taken, the
martial law restrictions will be substantially limited
or completely lifted by the end of next month."

adequately, having seen no
from the group on the issue.

. Should they be the ones who have the

unskilled asked. '
torically " Why hasn't there been any public

task force is looking at ways to incor-
porate the growing field of molecular
biology into the state's economy.
As for the impact of robotics on jobs,
Law said, "You don't need to spend
$100,000 (on a study) to see that em-
ployment is there. It's not a question of
whether robotics is coming. Clearly it
is.
ROBOTICS WILL be part of the
future of big firms, such as General
Motors, Law said.
In his memo, Law said he told the
Midland reporter that a key component

of the center the task force is expecting
to develop will be to "research the im-
plications of automation and the best
method to deal with it in the future.
Thus training, retraining, and a
sociological impact study will be a
critical part of our effort." -
MSA President Jon Feiger, who has
been working with Eynon, said he was
disappointed to see Milliken's office
focusing on Eynon 's and MSA's efforts
rather than on the issues MSA has
raised.
