10,000 Japanese to protest
return of U.S. nuclear carrier
TOKYO - Police expect at least 10,000 demonstrators to turn out tomorrow to
protest the return of the nuclear-powered U.S. aircraft carrier Enterprise for the
first time since the Vietnam War.
The demonstrators clearly are out to mock hawkish Prime Minsiter Yasuhiro
Nakasone, who has enraged the opposition by telling the United States that Japan
will become an "unsinkable aircraft carrier."
On the last visit of the Enterprise, in 1968, 40,000 demonstrators clashed with
police at the western port of Sasebo, leaving more than 500 people injured. Sasebo
will play host to the ship again tomorrow.
The protesters contend the Enterprise carries nuclear weapons and its presence
violates Japan's non-nuclear principles, which prohibit the introduction, manufac-
ture of storage of such arms in Japanese territory.
The Japanese are the only people ever to have suffered nuclear attack - the U.S.
Atomic bombings of Hiroshima and nagasaki at the end of World War II.
Airline union rejects contract
MIAMI - Eastern Airlines' largest union, hoping to push management back to
the bargaining table, rejected what the airline called its "final" contract offer by a
margin of almost 4-to-, labor leaders said yesterday.
Seventy-two percent turned down Eastern's offer of a 322percent pay hike over
three years, said Charles Bryan, president of the International Association of
Machinists District 10.
He said 10,500 of IAM's 13,000 members cast ballots, and about 10 ballots are still
uncounted. No exact figures were released.
A strike deadline is scheduled for 12:01 a.m. Thursday, and Bryan was confident
that IAM members would reaffirm their strike authorization in a separate ballot
being counted last ight.
the two sides are scheduled to meet in Washington tomorrow before the National
Mediation Board. On Friday, Borman said he would not negotiate any further. But
yesterday, he said the airline would send a representative to Washington.
Hussein, Arafat to meet this week
LONDON - Jordan's King Hussein, leader of a six-nation Arab league delegation
to Britain, saidyesterday he will meet with PLO chief Yasser Arafat this week in
the latest round of Middle East peace efforts.
U.S. Mideast trouble shooter Philip Habib met with Hussein for just over an hour
and was to fly to Israel today.
Habib said the purpose of the meeting was to review with Hussein the visits to
Washington last week of the Israeli and Lebanese foreign ministers and to bring
the king up to date on the status of the talks on the withdrawal of foreign troops
from Lebanon.
"His majesty was very gracious to receive me. . . and we naturally went over
the groudn in this regard rather thoroughly," Habib said without elaborating.
Hussein told a news conference earlier that he would meet with Arafat, chair-
man of the Palestine Liberation Organization, but he did not disclose the exact day
or place.
Walesa plans 'efficient' protests
VIENNA, Austria - Polich labor leader Lech Walesa, in an interview published
yesterday, outlined a strategy of peaceful protests, reminiscent of those staged by
India's Mohandas Gandhi, to wrest reforms from the communist government in
"We have devised many efficient means of pressure, many of which haven't
been tried out yet," the former chief of the Solidarity labor federation said in the
interview published by the Vienna daily Die Presse.
One form of protest, he was quoted as saying, could be cancellation of television
subscriptions. In Poland, as in some other European countries, viewers pay a fee
to receive TV programming.
"That would be a big loss to the state treasury, and we could take more walks in
the meantime," Walesa said in the interview, reportedly given in Gdansk after he
attended a trial of former Solidarity officials.
"We could also stop buying the bad vodka made by the government and make
our own fruit spirits for family holidays," Walesa was quoted as saying. 'That
would be another form of protest."
"It may sound ridiculous, but our activists in the regions are absolutely capable
of devising many nice and efficient means of pressure."
Zimbabwe terrorists kill 4
HARARE, Zimbabwe - The government charged yesterday that followers of
opposition leader Joshua Nkomo taunted, tied up, and then killed a white farmer,
his wife and two granddaughters with single shots to the head "in classic terrorist
execution style. "
Nkomo, who fled to Britain a week ago charging Prime Minister Robert
Mugabe's troops were out to kill him after liquidating hundreds of his followers,
cold not be reached for comment. Oficials said he had checked out of his London
hotel and that his whereabout were not known.
The Mugabe government said Eric Stratford, 66, his wife Christine, 62, and two
granddaughters aged 12 and 15 were shot through their heads at the Stratford farm

in the Nyamandhlovu region of central Matabeleland just after dusk Friday.
Government Information Director Justin Nyoka said in a statement that six
"dissidents," the term the government uses for Nkomo backers, marched the four
whites at gunpoint from the house and paraded them before black farm laborers,
some of who had earlier told the gunmen Stratford was "a bad boss."
