Poles riot
WARSAW- Street clashes erupted yesterday for
the third straight day in the Krakow suburb of Nowa
Huta after riot police used tear gas, stun grenades
and flares to disperse hundreds of Poles attending a
mass held for a youth killed in an earlier anti-gover-
nment protest, witnesses said.
Poland's official PAP news agency said police ac-
ted "energetically and unambiguously" to prevent
disturbances sparked by the police killing Wed-
nesday of a youth protesting the nation's martial law
authorities~
"THEY ARE chasing people through the streets,"
one witness said of the third straight day of street
battles.
The witnesses said fighting broke out after 1,000
defiant Poles emerged from a church chanting
"Solidarity!" and "The Army is with us." They were
leaving a special mass for the slain youth, 20-year-old
Bogdan Wlosik.
Police encircled the square outside the church,

IN BRIEF ,

leaving the crowd no avenue of escape, and advanced
slowly firing tear gas and water as they chanted the
name of the banned independent union.
THE STREET fighting was the latest in a series of
anti-government protests stemming from the
outlawing last Friday of Solidarity, the first union in
the Soviet bloc free of Communist Party control.
Riots erupted in Gdansk Monday and Tuesday and
spread to Wroclaw and Nowa Huta on Wednesday,
when a plainclothesman shot Bodgan Wlosik. He died
on an operating table Thursday.
The state-run media has blamed the protests and
riots on hooligans, youths and agitators inspired by
leaders of the banned union's underground, but
Wlosik and 14 others killed since martial law was im-
posed were workers.
AUTHORITIES admitted workers were reluctant
to join new official trade unions set up by the coun-
try's military rulers to replace Solidarity.
According to PAP, Nowa Huta's giant Lenin mill,
the country's biggest factory, employs about 40,000

people but only 100 have signed up for the new union.
"The number of people expressing their readiness
to join in and rebuild the trade union structures is
steadily growing, but there also are factories in
which the founding committees meet with reluctance
or even outright lack of confidence from personnels,"
PAP said.
Nowa Huta is a model city built during the Stalinist
1950s as a counterforce to Krakow, Poland's ancient
capital where 57 percent of the voters rejected Com-
munist candidates during 1947 elections.
The protests and riots in Nowa Huta present an
ideological quandary for the authorities, since much
of its population is young and has known nothing but
communism. Riots have increased in fury during the
past 10 months, observers say, indicating the
frustration of people there.

WASHINGTON - Drug makers will
respond quickly to the deaths caused by
cyanide-laced Extra-Strength Tylenol
and begin selling "high risk compoun-
ds" in tamper-resistant packages early

day.
Dr. Arthur Hull Hayes, commissioner
of the Food and Drug Administration,
said he expected his agency to issue a
new regulation requiring tamper-
resistant packaging by the first week in
November. In an appearance before a

ment, Hayes predicted that capsules

Young, DeVos clash on social services issues

(Continued from Page 1)

Young-who's surprise speech at the
conference was warmly received by the S
roughly 300 council members-was
quickly escorted away after speaking.
In a heated speech directly following
Mayor Young's, DeVos disagreed with
most of Young's pleas.

DeVos said that a change in society's
attitude, from negative to positive, is an
important step to solving today's
problems.
"WE CAN'T always finger point," he
said. "Detroit will not solve its
problems if it goes on degrading and
ridiculing itself."
After his speech DeVos was asked
what advice he gives to college students
who are currently facing dire economic
straits due to the staggering tuition
costs.
"I give them the same advice that I
give everbody else. They can't blame
others for their problems. They must

Khomeini aide assassinated
A top aide to Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini was killed and his son was
wounded yesterday by a suicidal guerrilla who blew himself and his victim
to pieces with a grenade in an embrace of death, the Iranian news agency
reported.
The Islamic Republic News Agency said the attacker, a leftist Mojahideen
guerrilla, died when he grabbed Ayatollah Ashrafi-Esfahani, 83, and pulled
the pin on his grenade inside the main mosque in Bakhtaran, 300 miles
southwest of Tehran.
Ashrafi-Esfahani's son was wounded in the attack which came as his
father spoke at a mosque prayer meeting. He was listed in satisfactory con-
dition at a hospital. Several other people also suffered injuries.
Ashrafi-Esfahani was Khomeini's special representative in Bakhtaran,
formerly Kermanshah. IRNA said he had taught religious studies in the
province for 30 years and was one of the most respected religious scholars in
ran.
U.S. missile plant bombed
TORONTO- A crate of dynamite exploded outside a plant producing
guidance systems for the U.S. Cruise missile and the company chief yester-
day blamed terrorists for the blast. Eight people were injured.
Police estimated 300 to 500 pounds of dynamite in an orange-colored crate
set beside a van outside the plant caused the powerful blast at Litton
Systems Canada Ltd., a subsidiary of Litton Industries of Beverly Hills,
Calif.
The plant has been a frequent target of anti-nuclear protests. "It is
frightening that a terorist activity such as this can hap pen in Canada," Lit-
ton Canada President Ronald Keating said. "It is the threat to the lives of
Litton employees and other innocent bystanders that disturbs me so much."
The force of the blast at 11:30 p.m. EDT Thursday blew apart the van,
leaving only a license plate and the steel engine block. It shattered windows
in nearby buildings and rocked buildings up to two miles away.
Only minutes before the explosion, a woman telephoned police to warn a
bomb had been planted in a van near the factory and would go off in 20
minutes. The bomb exploded 10 minutes after the call, however, and
policemen approaching the truck narrowly escaped death from flying
shrapnel.
Atty. Gen. plans tour to study
drug, refugee problems
WASHINGTON- Attorney General William French Smith plans to fly:
over the Golden Triangle in Thailand and walk through an illegal drug
bazaar in the Khyber Pass on a 20-day, round-the-world trip to study drug
and refugee problems, administration officials said yesterday.
"This is the first time an attorney general has ever made this kind of a
trip," said a high administration official. "The purpose is to emphasize the
importance we attach to these problems" and thus increase foreign
cooperation with the United States.
Two officials briefed reporters about the six-nation trip at the Justice
Department on the condition they be identified only as "a high ad-
ministration official" and "an administration official." The trip, which
begins Tuesday, will take the 24-person party to Tokyo, Hong Kong,
Thailand, Pakistan, Paris and Rome.
Smith will be accompanied by his wife, Jean, acting Drug Enforcement
Administrator Francis "Bud" Mullen, Immigration and Naturalization
Commissioner Alan Nelson, Smith's spokesman Thomas DeCair, two
secretaries and at least two special assistants. The other 13 members of the
group will be "mostly security people," the administration official said.
Wholesale prices, production
rates drop during September
WASHINGTON-, Dipping for the fourth time this year, prices at the
wholesale level fell in September at an annual rate of 1.7 percent, the gover-
nment said yesterday.
The new figures meant that, through September, wholesale inflation was
running at an annual rate of 3.1 percent and raised the possibility the pace
for all of this year would be the slowest since the 2.2 percent of 1970.
At the same time, the Federal Reserve Board reported that production at
the nation's factories was off 0.6 percent last month, the 12th decline in the
last 14 months.
Economists, heartened by the improved price picture, nonetheless largely
attributed the declines in both reports to the stifling recession which they
said still gripped the economy in September.
Gunman releases one hostage
NEW YORK- A career criminal and prison informant, fearing police
bullets and inmate revenge, kept police at bay outside a Brooklyn hospital
locker room for a second day but released one of his two hostages yesterday
afternoon.
More than 60 armed police and hostage negotiators camped outside the
dingy basement room that Larry Gardner took over at the sprawling King's
County Hospital complex. Gardner, although tired, apparently had not slept
since the ordeal began, police said.
Gardner, 33, seized a prison guard's gun and took five hostages Thursday
when he was taken to the hospital to have a cast removed from a broken
hand. The guard, Vernon Burton, was superficially wounded in the scuffle.
Three of the hostages were released unharmed during the first 14 hours in
trades for food, blankets, a television, a radio and other amenities, plus the
broadcasting of his complaints over radio and television.
Two hospital employees, John Leonard and Elton Smith, remained with
him yesterday morning. They had not been harmed.

were among featured speakers at the
conference.
Although not present for any of the
day's speeches, Shapiro nonetheless
was quick to respond to DeVos' com-
ments that students should get part-
time jobs to finance their education,
claiming that these jobs are readily
available for those who want them.
"Students are already doing that
(holding jobs), but they have to concen-
trate on schoolwork, too," Shapiro said.
THE COUNCIL of Michigan Foun-
dations is an association of gran-
tmakers, private and community foun-
dations, . banks serving foundations

and charitable trusts, and corporations
with giving programs.
These foundations, numbering
almost 800, gave grants which totaled
over $206,297,532 in their last reporting
year.
Speaking to the council, Shapiro said
the state of Michigan faces critical
economic and political challenges. He
added, however, "We do have the
resources, human and otherwise, to
sustain the challenge."
Shapiro said Michigan has had a
history of economic and political
leadership and "we ought not to let our
heritage of leadership slip into other
hands."

Financial aid
cuts not
so sevre
this year,
Regents told
(Continued from Page 1)
another resolution to keep them con-
stant.
The Reagan plan would have meant
nearly a $7 million loss in aid to Univer-
sity students, according to figures sup-
plied by Grotrian. It would have also
called for the elimination of Sup-
plemental Educational Opportunity
Grants, State Student Incentive Grants
and National Direct Student Loans, and
reduced Pell Grants and College-Work-
Study.
"I DO NOT think at this point that
(Reagan's) budget levels will be
allowed to stand," Grotrian told the
regents.
In other business, the Regents ap-
proved the terms of a plan to finance
the building of the Adult General
Hospital, which is currently under con-
struction.
Under the plan, the State Building
Authority will provide $140 million for
the project, estimated to cost $193
million, according to Norman Herbert,
the University's investment officer.
Construction costs were originally
estimated at $210 million, but some of
the bids have been lower than projec-
ted, Herbert said.
The state will provide another $20
million, and the University will match
that figure to createa safeguard, for
investors against rising costs. The
other $30 million will have been paid for
by the end of November, Herbert said.
The Regents also approved a plan to
increase University contributions to the
employee health insurance premiums.
Rate increases by Blue Cross-Blue
Shield and Major Medical insurance
companies forced the expenditure, ac-
cording to Vice-President and Chief
Financial Officer James Brinkerhoff.
The increased contribution caused a $1
million rise in the General Fund
