RHA votes against

Campbell's soup lovers in University
dormitories can still expect Campbell's
products to be served, as the result of a
Residence Hall Association vote last
night against a University food service
boycott of Campbell's products.
The RHA voted last month to invite a
Campbell's spokesperson to come
speak to the group after listening to
claims made by a University group
pushing for better working and living
conditions for migrant farm workers in
On March 2, Campbell's Director of
Public Relations Scott Rombach ad-
dressed the group, arguing that Cam-
pbell's is being singled out unfairly by.
FLOC (Farm Labor Organizing Com-
mittee). "We're (Campbell's) being
singled out in this social scenario.
We're not an anti-union, anti-socially
concerned company," he said.
Rombach told the group that Cam-
pbell's does not employ farm workers
nor have they ever done so in the past.
"Legally we can't negotiate with
migrants because they are not em-
ployees," Rombach said. He added,
however, that about 130 migrant
workers are employed by farmers who
Are contracted by the company.
CAMPBELL'S is the third largest
tomato grower in Ohio, behind Hunts

and Heinz, said Rombach. But because
the company's red and white cans are
more visible on supermarket shelves,
FLOC has chosen to pick on Cam-
pbell's, he said.
A bil lhas been introduced in the Ohio
legislature which would allow
agricultural workers to organize
unions. Both FLOC and Campbell's
support the bill. A similar bill has
already been adopted in California.
Notre Dame University has already
initiated a similar boycott against
Campbell's but 30 universities nation-
wide have rejected the Campbell's
boycott. The RHA vote was 13-3, with
nine abstentions.
AT LAST night's meeting, Dave
Monks of the University's FLOC sup-
port group, said he was "disgusted"
with the way the RHA has handled the
issue. By not letting a FLOC represen-
tative speak after Rombach, he said the
RHA gave Campbell's an "unfair ad-
Monks also said that FLOC members
were denied admittance to last week's
RHA meeting when Campbell's presen-
ted its side of the issue.
"RHA violated my rights as a
University resident at the last meeting,
by not letting me attend. I don't think
RHA represents the views or is the true
voice of the students on campus," he
BUT RHA Vice President Pam Mc-
Cann said the incident last week was "a
misunderstanding" and that as a
resident, Monks does have the right to
attend any RHA meeting.
Monks also protested an RHA
decisionnot to have Biology Prof. John
Vandermeer speak to the group. Van-
dermeer has written a bookconthe
tomato industry and taught a class on
migrant workers at the University, said
According to Monks, FLOC presently
has support groups in 43 cities across
the country and is supported by
numerous groups including the Ohio
Council of Churches, AFSCME, the
United Church of Christ, and the United
Auto Workers.

CHICAGO (AP) - Federal and state
investigators believe they know who
killed seven Chicago-area people with
cyanide-spiked Tylenol, but lack the
evidence needed to make an arrest, a
published report said yesterday.
Investigators targeted a Chicago-
area man as the prime suspect about
Oct. 9, less than two weeks after the
deaths of seven Chicago-area people
who took cyanide-filled Extra-Strength
Tylenol capsules, according to USA
TODAY, a national newspaper which
made its debut in Chicago yesterday.
The newspaper quoted an uniden-
tified source close to the case as saying,
"We know who did it. We just have to
prove it."
THE SOURCE would not identify the

suspect or the evidence being sought or
say why an arrest has not been made,
the newspaper said.
Spokesmen for the FBI and Chicago
police, both of which have played major
roles in the investigation, denied
knowledge of such a suspect.
"I don't know where the heck they're
getting that from," said FBI
spokesman Anthony DeLorenzo. But he
stopped short of calling the report false.
"I DON'T want to say it's erroneous
- that's not proper to do," DeLorenzo
said. "The newspaper may have talked
to somebody who said something like
that. We have suspects, just like in any
other case. But we don't have any hot
suspects like this article would in-
Chicago police Lt. August Locallo
said his department knows nothing
about a prime suspect either. He said
the police, whose investigation of the
case he has headed, have no suspect "at
all" resembling the one in the USA
TODAY report.

Mansour gets Senate approval
LANSING - Sister Agnes Mary Mansour officially became Michigan's
welfare director yesterday with a vote of confidence from the Senate out-
weighing efforts of anti-abortion forces to oust her from the job.
But the Roman Catholic nun's future as the chief of Michigan's largest
state agency remains in doubt despite the 28-9 Senate vote to confirm her. She
is under orders by Detroit Archbishop Edmund Szoka to resign for failing to
condemn state funding of abortions for welfare recipients.
The question of Sister Mansour's ability to keep the job granted her by
Gov. James Blanchard may ultimately be decided in the Vatican. Her
religious order, the Sister of Mercy, said last week she can keep her post.
The vote to confirm the nun came after an hour of emotional debate-on the
abortion issue and followed by a one-day Senate confirmation hearing
described by many as a "three-ring circus."
During the committee meeting, she maintained her stand of personally
opposing abortions, while tolerating funding for the procedure for poor
Sister Mansour, the president of Mercy College in Detroit, said she was
"very pleased" by the confirmation.
Demonstrators protest as
Carter visits West Bank
BETHLEHEM, Israeli-occupied West Bank - Jewish settlers and Israeli
soldiers yesterday battled rock-throwing Palestinian youths protesting the
visit of former President Jimmy Carter.
Police and army spokesmen said five Israelis were injured by stones in
three demonstrations near Hebron, and 13 Palestinians were arrested in the
Arab sector of Jerusalem after they stoned police cars and staged an anti-
Carter march.
Israel radio said Carter eliminated a tour of the Church of the Holy
Sepulchre in Jerusalem because of the large number of Arabs gathered out-
side the church.
Though violence swirled around Carter, he never saw any of it, said a U.S.
official in his entourage.;
In Bethlehem, Israeli civilians and a soldier fired pistols and an automatic
weapons after they came under a barrage of stones near town hall an hour
before Carter arrived, witnesses said. No one was reported injured.
Pope stops in Haiti, ends trip
PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haita - Pope John Paul II offered "words of comfort
and hope" for the world's poor and criticized "aggressive proselytism" by
other religions yesterday in a whirlwind conclusion of his visit to Central
America and the Caribbean.
"It is a question of having a dignified standard of living," the pope said in
remarks prepared for delivery at a eucharistic congress in Haiti, the
Western Hemisphere's most destitute country and the last stop on his eight-
nation tour.
The church does not "want to accuse and point out what is wrong" but
desires "to contribute positively toward development, especially with
leaders," he added.
John Paul flew across the Caribbean to Haiti after a two-hour visit to
English-speaking Belize, formerly the colony of British Honduras. Ad-
dressing a crowd of 30,000 there, he spoke in favor of "ecumenism" between
Catholics and other Christians but warned against "aggressive proselytism
that disturbs and hurst, sometimes with unworthy procedures."
Reagan: more Salvadoran aid
WASHINGTON - President Reagan will announce his decision on
emergency military aid for El Salvador in a speech today, an ide said. But
Speaker Thomas O'Neill asserted Reagan does not have the votes to win
House approval for any increase.
Reagan met with Republican congressional leaders and foreign policy ad-
visers, including Secretary of State George Shultz, as he prepared to make
final decisions on help for the war-torn Central American nation, deputy
press secretary Larry Speakes said.
Reagan will announce the decision in a major address today to a meeting
of the National Association of Manufacturers in a Washington hotel, Speakes
said. "The subject will be Central America and El Salvador," he said.
The president has been reviewing options for increasing aid to Salvadoran
forces for more than a month. Since the start of March, Reagan and his top
aides have voiced heightened concern almost daily.
Gunmen attack Turkish official
BELGRADE, - Two Armenian gunmen ambushed the Turkish am-
bassador as he sat in his car waiting for a stoplight yesterday, critically
wounding him in a fusillade of bullets that killed an innocent bystander..
One of the gunmen was wounded and captured, the other escaped.
The Ambassador, Galip Balkar, 47, was rushed to a hospital, where he un-

derwent emergency brain surgery. Doctors listed his condition as critical.
Balkar also suffered shoulder and spinal injuries.
The fleeing gunmen opened fire on bystanders, including an armed off-
duty policeman, who gave chase and returned fire.
In Athens and Paris, a group calling itself "Justice Fighters Against the
Armenian Genocide" claimed responsibility for the shooting.
