Speakers call
for education on
toxic chemicals

By JACKIE YOUNG
A Michigan occupational safety and
health group is lobbying state officials
to adopt a bill that would require all
chemicals in the work place to be
clearly labeled and provide funds to
educate workers on the dangers of toxic
chemicals.
The proposed bill would be "preven-
tive medicine" for the state, a
representative from the Southeast
Michigan Council for Occupational
Safety and Health said yesterday at a
toxic waste workshop sponsored by the
Public Interest Research Group in
Michigan (PIRGIM).
WORKMAN'S COMPENSATION and
other expensive state programs curren-
tly cover the cost of health problems for
workers, Enid Eckstein told a group of
about 40 statewide PIRGIM represen-
tatives gathered at the Michigan Union.
"The short-term investment would
offset a long-term cost," she said, ex-
plaining that the bill would vastly
reduce health costs for the state.
If the bill is to pass, it will have to
overcome strong opposition from
chemical company lobbyists, Eckstein
said. "Information (on chemical
ingredients) is denied consistently to
workers by the chemical companies.
You could never ban certain chemicals,
but you can make sure that they
(chemical companies and workers) use
them differently," she said.
THE BILL would "give people the in-
formation to make an informed and
educated decision," Eckstein said.
"This should be a constitutional right,
but it isn't."

On Valentine's Day, Eckstein said the
council's Right to Know Task Force will
be sending special messages to state
legislators, stressing the importance of
the workers' right to know what
chemicals they are working withwand
what the potential health hazards are
for themselves and their families.
The New York state legislature ap-
proved a similar law nine months ago,
according to Eckstein.
PROF. JIM Martin of the Univer-
sity's School of Public Health told the
workshop the school has formed a
committee that is examining how the
University can work with state depar-
tments in toxic waste management.
"We've (the committee) just begun
to look at the problem (of toxic waste
management) where it presents itself,"
said Martin, who is a former head of the
State Health Department in Colorado in
charge of hazardous waste disposal.
The workshop also featured The
Poisoning of Michigan, a film based on
the 1973 accident in which the toxic
chemical PBB was mixed into the feed
of Michigan dairy cattle and con-
taminated dairy products.
UNIVERSITY PIRGIM represen-
tatives said the workshop is only part of
the group's effort to fight toxic waste
problems in the state. "We (PIRGIM)
felt we could be effective on this issue.
We feel we have the resources and the
people with expertise to make an im-
pact," said Wendy Rampson, campus
coordinator of PIRGIM.
Echoed University PIRGIM member
Aina Bernier: "PIRGIM groups across
the state decided to make toxic wastes
a statewide issue this year."

EPA

S

toxic waste

fund: Contaminated?

WASHINGTON (AP) - When
Congress set aside money to clean up
the country's worst chemical waste
dumps, the $1.6 billion was nicknamed
the Superfund.
Now the fund has super problems.
Last week, the program's ad-
ministrator, Rita Lavelle, was fired by
President Reagan, setting off a round of
charges and countercharges.
ALLEGATIONS were made of
"sweetheart" deals between EPA
polluters, of paper shredders possibly
running after hours to get rid of sen-
sitive documents and of political
manipulation of the fund.
EPA Administrator Anne' Gorsuch
said the cleanup program has been
aggressive and free of politics and con-
flicts of interest - but her assurances
failed to stop six House and Senate
committees from jumping into the fray
with their own investigations.
Four House committees have given
notice they plan to look into settlements
the EPA has been reaching with

chemical companies to clean up dump
sites.
IN ONE OF those settlements, 24
companies agreed last October to pay
$7.7 million to remove 60,000 barrels pf
chemical wastes from a dump in
Seymour, Ind. In return, the EPA
agreed to free the companies from any
liability for soil and groundwater con-'
tamination - costs the agency says
could reach $15 million.
EPA critics say this settlement is just
the worst of several which let industr
off the hook for a fraction of estimate
clean-up costs.

Which way for SNR?

(Continued from Page 1)
as the economy recovers from its long
slump. New housing starts will bring
the industry around again, said John
Hall, an official at the National Forest
Products Association, a Washington-
based forestry interest group.
Hall stressed the need for a com-
bination of top quality researchers and
managers. "What we're looking for is
how to improve our productivity and
how to make a profit."
In addition to addressing the resear-
ch issue, the committee that reviewed
the school recommended a sharp cut in
undergraduate enrollment, due to the
relatively low qualifications of the
school's students. By reducing
enrollment, the panel said, the school
could be more selective in its ad-
missions.
INDUSTRY representatives agree
that quality is more important than
quantity in producing natural resources
degree holders. "If a student is going
into forestry because he likes being
outdoors, he'd better rethink his
process," said Georgia-Pacific's
Wishart.
"If a company pays you $15,000 to
$20,000 a year, that company has got to
get more than that back," he said. Em-
ployers, Wishart added, are looking
only for the best.
Early this week, Billy Frye, the
University's vice president for
academic affairs and top budget of-

ficer, is expected to hand down the ad-
ministration's evaluation of the natural
resources review.
ALTHOUGH THERE appears to be
little chance that the school will be
saved from significant cuts - as most
parties involved agree that a certain
reshaping and reduction of the school is
due - the administration may spare
natural resources from the extensive
overhaul recommended by the review
committee, sources close to the school
say.
They believe the administration has
been persuaded by faculty arguments
that say an overemphasis on Ph.Ds is a
mistake. In addition, the University
traditionally allows the individual
schools to decide on their own direction
within alotted budgets. And too much
interference in those decisions by out-
siders usually is unpopular among a
school's faculty.
Many professors have said the
restrictions that would result from a 33
percent cut wouk make it difficult for
them to teach as they think best,
creating a morale% problem ad-
ministrators hope to avoid.
