William Ince, president of the Michigan
Technology Council, which is spon-
soring the event, said he expects 20,000
people to turn out. The 1981 fair drew
Ince said he hopes the Fair will get the
word out about Michigan's growing
high-tech efforts, let business and in-
ventors mix and mingle, and interest
students in pursuing technology-related
Although high technology is the
thrust of the conference, Ince said the
impact of past innovations will also be

THEY CAN all compete in this con-
test, Aldridge said, but the competition
is different. "This way you're com-
peting with the full force," he said.
Special awards were given to junior
Sebastian Rotella for his short story
"Plus Tips, Exiles, and Reunion," and
to Laura Kay Kasischke, a junior from
Grand Rapids, for her poem "The

Special awards were given to the win-
ners of four first places in the minor
competition, which is for first-year
through third-year students. Rotella
and Kasischke each received $1,500.
After the awards were handed out,
Kingston congratulated the winners
and the non-winners, acknowledging
the hard work each contestant put for-
th. "I am amazed that you can write
and go to school at the same time," she
Kingston said after the ceremony
that the Hopwood competition is a great
way to encourage young students to
"I'm sure it influences the at-
mosphere of this place (the University)
for young people to write," she said.

THE VANQUISHED Republicanwas

remarks late Tuesday as the vote was
counted. In a television interview, Ep-

with city finances but made a snide

file federal income tax returns.
"His expertise in the area of finances
certainly leaves a lot to be desired,"
"The black friends that I've lost,
perhaps it's just as well that I found out
at this stage. But in the future, I'll save
a lot of money on charitable causes."
LOCAL Democratic powers in the
nation's second-largest city were not
too bashful to try to climb on the
Washington victory bandwagon.
Alderman Roman Pucinski, one of
eight Democratic committeemen who
endorsed Epton, said he now is ready to
"I intend to work closely with him,"
said Pucinski, a former congressman
whose ward went 90-10 for Epton. But
he warned Washington will have to ally
white fears "by his conduct, by his ac-

Walesa seized and questioned
WARSAW, Poland - Crying "tell the whole world," former Solidarity
Leader Lech Walesa was taken from his home by police yesterday for
several hours of interrogation about his meetings with fugitive leaders of the
An official communique broadcast on national television said Walesa was
released after being questioned about his weekend talks with the Solidarity
activists, who are high on the Polish militia's most-wanted list.
"After explanations, Walesa was allowed to go home," the official PAP
news agency reported.
Looking tired and tense, Walesa returned to his home in the Baltic port of
Gdansk, nearly five hours after he had been taken away by three armed
Review of EPA candidate finds
possible conflict of interests
WASHINGTON - William Ruckelshaus, President Reagan's choice to
take over the troubled Environmental Protection Agency, is a director of a
firm that EPA auditors accused of grossly overcharging the government on
"superfund" waste cleanup contracts.
There was no indication from EPA documents that Ruckelshaus played any
role in three disputed contracts held by the firm, Peabody Clean Industry
Ruckelshaus, who is awaiting Senate confirmation as successor to Anne
Burford, who resigned under pressure March 9, was flying from Seattle to
Washington yesterday and could not be reached for comment.
Interim EPA audits of three emergency cleanups of chemical dumps han-
dled by Peabody Clean Industry last year concluded that the firm over-
charged EPA by $335,022 and inadequately documented $2 million in other
At the time of the three cleanups, Peabody Clean Industry was a branch of
Peabody International Corp. of Stamford, Conn., a firm that Ruckelshaus
has served as an outside director since 1974. Ruckelshaus was EPA's first
administrator from 1970 to1973.
Hondurans move into Nicaragua
CIFUENTES, Honduras Anti-Sandinista forces apparently have moved
most of their campus from Honduras into Nicaragua but residents of the
area report a constant flow of insurgents across the rugged, unguarded bor-
Sometimes the rebels cross back into Honduras to flee Nicaraguan army
attacks, sources said.
Refugees have also been coming from Nicaragua recently in large num-
bers. There are about 1,000 such new arrivals in camps in Danli, a town far-
ther inland, being cared for by the Honduran Red Cross and Caritas, a
Roman Catholic relief agency.
The refugees tell of forced emlistment in the Nicaraguan militias, of death
threats against evangelists and of food-ration cards being withheld for
refusal to join cooperatives organized by the leftists Sandinista government.
Officials estimate there are 26,000 Nicaraguan refugees in Honduras.
Vietnam to withdraw troops
from Cambodia next month
BANGKOK, Thailand - Vietnam announced yesterday it would withdraw
some of its estimated 180,000 troops in Cambodia next month, following a
two-week blitz of Cambodian guerrillas along the Thai border.
The withdrawal was announced by the foreign ministers of Vietnam,
Cambodia and Laos. Their joint communique, broadcast by the Voice of
Vietnam, did not say how many troops would be pulled out.
A similar withdrawal was announced last summer, but then also the num-
ber of troops withdrawn and the number left were not announced.
The foreign ministers also renewed an earlier.proposal for a special
"security zone" along the Thai-Cambodian frontier, a neutral strip super-
vised by the United Nations. The proposal was rejectedhby Thailand and the
other non-Communist nations of Southeast ASia, which recognize the anti-
Vietnamese coalition whose guerrilla camps are located along the border.
Pill linked to heart disease
BOSTON - Some brands of birth control pills raise levels of a kind of
cholesterol linked with heart disease, and long-time use of these pills "may
be undesirable," a study says.
The research may explain why women who use the pill face an increased
risk of heart attack and stroke.
The researchers found widely varying levels of different forms of
cholesterol in pill users' blood, depending largely on the proportion of two
kinds of sex hormones in their birth control pills.
Pills that are relatively high in progestin and low in estrogen raise the
levels of the hazardous form of cholesterol, called low density lipoprotein
cholesterol, or LDL. But pills that were low in progestin and high in estrogen
didn't do this.
LDL causes fatty deposits on the blood vessels and makes them narrow
and clog. This condition, called hardening of the arteries, contributes direc-
tly to heart attack and stroke.
The.effects-of the balance between the two hormones "may underlie the
increased incidence of stroke and myocardial infarction heart attack in
women of childbearing age who take oral contraceptives," the researchers
