LOS ANGELES (AP) - Air quality
officials are setting out to reduce air
pollution during the 1984 Olympics to.
avoid substandard performances by the
athletes and damage to the city's
The South Coast Air Quality Manage-
ment District issued a list of 10
suggestions Friday for reducing air
pollution during the 1984 summer smog
season. Ideas range from staggering
public employees' work- hours and
reducing auto traffic to a two-or-three-
week shutdown of. major industries.
"LOS ANGELES has a chance to be a
showcase," said the proposal's author,

r Olympics
Brian Farris, senior air quality
specialist with the district. "We have a
a, bad enough reputation without a bad
smog episode having to happen during
the Olympics, too."
The effects of smog, including watery
eyes and shortness of breath, are not
long-lived for most people, but they
could slow down Olympic athletes, he
"They won't get cancer, but some of
these athletes have been preparing for
the Olympics all their life and then, to
come here and give a sub-optimal per-
formance because your chest hurts you
know, you throw a javelin and it sticks
in the air, would be bad," he said.

TORONTO (AP)-Chrysler says it
can't afford higher pay for its striking
Canadian workers, who are walking
picket lines in frigid weather and
saying they can't afford to work for the
wages they're getting.
The strike, started Friday by 10,000
workers, seems likely to last for mon-
ths, with rippling effects on the United
States and Canada's economies.
MEANWHILE, United Auto Workers
union President Douglas Fraser
suspended his membership on Chrysler
Corp.'s board of directors until contract
disputes in Canada and the U.S. are set-
tled, a union spokesman said yester-
Fraser gave his notice in a letter
delivered to Chrysler Chairman Lee
Iacocca's office Friday afternoon.
The letter said Fraser took the action
because of "a perception held by some
that when the UAW is engaged in an
ongoing and serious collective
bargaining conflict with the Chrysler
Corp., my active participation on the
board is inappropriate."
WITHIN HOURS after the Canadians
walked out, Chrysler officials in Detroit
announced layoffs affecting 2,500
workers in 16 U.S. plants from San-
dusky, Ohio, to Huntsville, Ala.-1,000
of them in the Detroit area.
Company officials say if the strike
continues into next year up to 40,000
U.S. workers could be laid off at a time

when unemployment has already
reached the 10 percent mark.
The unemployment rate in Canada is
12.7 percent.
Because of concessions made to save
the automaker from bankruptcy,
Chrysler workers are still on the 1979
wage scale. The union says some
Canadian employees lost their homes,
unable to afford mortgage payments
when their loans came up for renewal
at higher rates in the past year.
Chrysler has proposed a two-year
contract with cost-of-living increases
but no general wage hike. Workers both
in Canada and the United States rejec-
ted the offer, but while the Americans
voted to renew negotiations in January
the more militant Canadian workers
took to the picket lines with the daytime
temperatures in the 30s.
The Canadian union is seeking a
general wage increases, cost-of-living
protection and other benefits.

Conference gIves chance
to discuss medical ethics

(Continued from Page 1)
their choice of one of two topics in the
morning session and the same in the af-
ternoon. At each session two speakers
give short presentations which raise
questions suggested by the topic's fic-
titious case history.
AFTERWARDS, the groups break up
into small discussion sections of 12 to 15
people, each led by a moderator. The
discussion sections meet for about an
hour and try to reach some sort of con-
sensus, if possible. After the discussion
sections meet, the topic group gets back
together to ask questions and hear how
the speakers would solve the dilemma.
In addition to "Refusing to Treat the
Non-compliant Patient" (the John
Travis case), the conference topics in-
cluded "Minors and Birth Control,"
"Are Living Wills a Viable Concept?"
and "Civil Defense."
speakers at the conference came
from as far away as Miami, Fla. and
Tulsa, Okla. They included several
doctors, professors, a nun, and the
public affairs coordinator of Michigan's
Planned Parenthood Affiliates.
ABOUT 175 people registered for the
conference. Half to two-thirds were
"The small group sessions are my
favorite part of the conference," said
Doreen Ganos, a group moderate and
former conference co-director. "In the
groups we get a chance to work
together to solve the problems of a
specific case.
"And we strive to make everyone
equal in the groups," she said, so
professors, students, doctors, lawyers,
and anyone else who attends the con-
ference all have a voice in the outcome.
"Our main objective is to promote a
rational and interdisciplinary approach
to medical ethics," said Ganos, a sixth-
year Inteflex student.
The conferences are the brain-child
of several Inteflex students, par-
ticularily Inteflex graduate Dr. Marc
Bassin. Bassin formed the Committee
on ethics, humanism, and medicine in
1977 with encouragement from Inteflex
counselors and Residential College
Philosophy Prof. Carl Cohen. The
committee recruited members mostly
from the Inteflex program, but that has
begun to change.
BECAUSE OF the time constraints
on Inteflex and medical students, un-
dergraduates make up a large share of
the staff, according to Warren and con-
ference Director of Registration Mike
Segesta. Segesta and Warren are
examples of this trend. Segesta is
majoring in philosophy and Warren in
CEHM gets its money from a variety
of university sources. About one-third
of their money comes from the
University medical school, another

... promoting biomedical ethics

third from registration fees, and the
remainder from LSA, the School of
Nursing, the School of Pharmacy, and
other programs, Warren said. She ad-
ded that the School of Public Health
donates its building free of charge.
Since the first conference in the
spring of 1978, the committee has been
drawing praise for its work.
"CEHM IS A marvelous program -
remarkable, successful, and run en-
tirely by students. They make a very
genuine contribution" to the field of
medical ethics and to the University,
Cohen said.
"The conference provides an oppor-
tunity for those who are really in-
terested in medical ethicsbeyond
background information," said Dr.
Gerald Abrams of the medical school.
"It throws back to .the student the
problem of detecting the problems.,,
Which is what the conference is all
about - thinking for oneself about
medical ethics issues.
"The more you think about (the
questions), the more questions are
raised," said CEHM staffmember
Mark Bilsky.
"I believe that a system for figuring
out these questions is more important
than the decisions you reach. And I
think that is one of the goals of the con-
ference - to have people at least start
to work out a framework in which to
make decisions," Warren said.
But CEHM is running into problems.
Some of the group's funds are being cut
and efforts to obtain grants from
private foundations have turned up
empty so far.
