DETROIT (UPI)- Detroit's 11,000 public school
teachers rejected pay cuts and went on strike yester-
day, more than doubling the number of students af-
fected by walkouts across the nation as the 1982-83
school year moved into full swing.
School officials told the 200,000 students in Detroit,
the nation's seventh largest school district, to report
for classes despite the walkout. Strikes by 1,700
teachers in six other Michigan districts. canceled
classes for an additional 30,000 pupils.
MARATHON contract talks between the board and
the Detroit Federation of Teachers (DFT) broke off
Sunday night, though state fact-finder David Tan-
zman said the two sides were close to agreement at
"I hope it's not a long strike, but I really don't
know,"said a dejected Detroit School Superintendent
Arthur Jefferson. "The parties have stopped
negotiating. There will be no teachers in class."
Jefferson said any decision on. whether schools
would remain open during the strike would be made
"on a school-by-school basis."
THE DFT'S executive board voted unanimously
Saturday to reject the school board's latest offer, set-
ting the stage for yesterday's strike.
The Board of education wants teachers to accept a
salary rollback to 1980-81 levels to help wipe out a
projected $38-60 million deficit. That would cut the
salary schedule from the present $15,027 to $30,000 to
$13,786 to $27,606.
"The attitude of teachers now is absolutely no con-
cessions," DFT President John Elliott said Sunday.
Elliott said the union does not believe the school
board made enough efforts to economize in other

BEIRUT, Lebanon - Waves of
Israeli warplanes pounded Palestinian
and Syrian targets in Lebanon yester-
day and struck within three miles of the
Syrian border in the heaviest bombar-
dment since Israel's assault against
west Beirut one month ago.
In a sharp escalation from recent at-
tacks on Syrian anti-aircraft missiles,
Israeli warplanes ranged up and down
the strategic Bekaa Valley in eastern
Lebanon, striking more than a dozen
different targets for about eight hours.
THE NEW Israeli air strikes
heightened the possibility of a major
confrontation between Israeli and
Syrian soldiers in Lebanon. It was the
fourth time in five days that Israeli
warplanes carried out raids against the
Yesterday's strikes left several
military emplacements afire, Lebanese
radio stations reported. Israel said the
attacks ended yesterday afternoon and
all planes returned safely.
Israel said the bombing was in
retaliation for 98 violations of a July 23
cease-fire and a clear warning to
Damascus to stop helping Palestinian
guerrillas behind Syrian lines.

broadcast said its forces had engaed

mediate, the University can't lose sight
of the future in a scramble to solve it,
Frye told about 200 LSA faculty mem-

"In the past two or three years it has
become increasingly clear that we can-
not cope with these types of problems
without making dramatic adjustmen-

"Painfully," he added, "we've
