GEO decides to go back
to the bargaining table

assistants should always be prepared to
walk off their jobs if the University does
not treat the union fairly.
"WE MUST prove to the University
that we are willing to fight or they will
not bargain with us in good faith," he
Also at last night's meeting, which
was held in the Rackham Am-
phitheater, GEO released the official
results of the vote on its proposed con-
tract last week.

According to Cay Horstmann, a
member of GEO's election committee,
329 valid ballots were cast in the voting,
which took place through the mail over
a two-week period. That number made
up 52 percent of the union's 625 voting
members, just enough to rule the voting
officially valid, Horstmann said.
OF THOSE ballots, 143 favored the
proposed contract, while 186 opposed it.
For the contract to have been ratified,
more than half of the 625 active mem-
bers would have had to vote "yes."
But Bekken, who had lobbied hard
against the proposed contract-and who
had contended that the vote was much
stronger against the proposal, accused
Horstmann of lying and claimed Hor-
stmann's figures were doctored to
favor the contract proposal.
But Horstmann dismissed Bekken's
charges and explained that three other
GEO officials participated in the vote
Another GEO official, steering com-
mittee member Tim Feeman, last night
charged that the University ad-
ministration was trying to discredit
GEO among teachingassistants and
was engaging in harassment of TAs
who support the union.
Feeman said the University has been
intentionally failing to notify new TAs
about their union rights and in some in-
stances has deducted too much money
from some TAs paychecks for union

Wall Street has record trad
NEW YORK - A late selling wave halted the stock market's rally in 161
Street's busiest day ever yesterday, and the Dow Jones industrial average
fell more than 15 points from its all-time high reached Wednesday.
Wall Street exploded with its biggest one-day gain in history Wednesday as
the Dow Jones industrial average surged 43.41 points to 1,065.49, eclipsing
the previous peak of 1,051.70 set Jan. 11, 1973. The previous record for a daily
advance was 38.8. points last Aug. 17.
Trading volume on the New York Stock Exchange reached 137.01 million
shares, the fifth highest on record.
Analysts said the gains, which began in mid-August and pushed the Dow
Jones industrial average up 290 points, were an extension of the late summer
rally rather than a reaction to Tuesday's elections where the Democrats
gained about two dozen House seats while the Republicans maintained their
majority in the Senate.
Spanish general assassinated .
MADRID, Spain - Suspected Basque terrorists on a speeding motorcycle
shot and killed one of Spain's top army generals on a busy Madrid street
yesterday, posing a major threat to Spain's new Socialist government.
The attack, the first terrorist assault since the election last week of Spain's
first Socialist government in 46 years, came less than an hour after Pope
John Paul II left Madrid to visit three medieval cities. The pontiff denoun-
ced the attack as "'anti-Christian."
Two young men on a motorcycle drew up beside the black sedan of Gen.
Victor Lago Roman, stuck in Madrid's morning rush hour traffic, and rid-
dled it with bursts of submachine gun fire, police said. The windows were
shattered and blood seeped into the pavement.
Reagan officials concede
deficit could reach 200omillion 6
WASHINGTON - In the clear light of a post-election day, Reagan admin-
istration officials now concede the government faces a tidal wave of red ink
that could crest somewhere between $150 billion and $200 billion in fiscal
Though loath to discuss it before Tuesday's verdict was in, these officials,
still requesting anonymity, admit also that no solution. Budget; .
Director David Stockman, limited by Reagan's insistence that only non-
defense cuts are acceptable, was said to have told an aide that "I don't know
what we are going to do."
Stockman is perplexed, as well, by the president's refusal, at least for now,
to consider higher taxes, sources say.
But the president said, in the wake of election gains by House Democrats,
that he would have to compromise with Congress, as he did last year in ac-
cepting tax increases and modest defense cuts forced on him by his fellow
Republicans. How far he would go remained unclear.
Stevenson holds slim lead
CHICAGO - Democrat Adlai Stevenson III held a slim lead over Gov.
James Thompson in the cliffhanger Illinois governor's race yesterday as of-
ficials counted dried-out ballots in an election likely to end up in court.
The only statewide totals available from News Election Service, a vote
counting agency, showed Stevenson with a lead of 3,558 votes. With 185
precincts still out, Stevenson had 1,777,785 to Thompson's 1,774,227.
On Wednesday, Thompson, seeking a third term, held a narrow lead over
Stevenson, a former senator and son of the late Illinois governor and two-
time Democratic presidential nominee. But when the tables turned, Steven-
son aides claimed their man won.
"I don't doubt this will end up in court," said Michael Lavelle, chairman of
the Chicago elections board. "As night follows day, this could wind up in
Jobless checks hit new high
WASHINGTON - A record number of Americans drew unemployment
checks in mid-October, government figures showed yesterday, leading
private economists to predict further deterioration in an already tight job
Statistics released by the Labor Department showed that more than 4.68
million people were getting unemployment checks in the week ending Oct. 16
The seasonally adjusted total was the highest since the unemployment com-
pensation program was enacted in the mid-1930s.
While the 4,687,000 figure was the highest ever, officials of the depar-
tment's Employment and Training Administration noted that the insured
employment rate was 5.4 percent - well below the 7 percent peak reached
during the recession of 1975.
The Labor Department report, however, showed a mild decline in the
number of new claims for benefits, but that occurred a week after the Census
Bureau survey for the October unemployment rate. October's unem-
ployment rate will be released today.
Tamper-proof bottles required
WASHINGTON - Spurred by the cyanide-Tylenol killings, the gover-
nment said yesterday it will require non-prescription capsules and most
liquid drugs to have tamper-resistant packaging within three months.
The new rules will add a penny or two to the cost of each product. Some of
the new packages may be on sale within two weeks, Health and Human Ser-
vices Secretary Richard Schweiker said.
Manufacturers have a choice of packaging techniques, such as seals,
shrink bands and bubble packs, but must meet a performance standard.
Later, they must include warning labels on their products.
"It isn't foolproof," Schweiker said in an interview. "We don't want to
oversell it." But he said the rules will "greatly lower the odds" of drug tam-
