four-month extension to apply an IRA
to that year.

Economic recovery accelerates
WASHINGTON - In a double dose of good news for the nation's economic
recovery, the government reported yesterday that wholesale prices dropped
0.1 percent and factory production made a strong 1.1 percent gain in Mar-
The decline in wholesale prices form January to March, as measured by
the government's Producer Price Index, was the steepest for any quarter in
more than three decades, the Labor Department said.
At the same time, a sharp surge in factory production of construction sup-
plies, and even furniture and carpeting, was triggered by a housing boom
that lifted February's housing starts 93 percent above the level of a year
"It's just the kind of recovery we were hoping for," Martin Feldstein, the
president's chief economic adviser, told reporters at the White House.
"It's continuing increase in output that leads to greater hires and declines
in unemployment," he added. "We're very pleased with the way the
recovery is progressing."
Overall, the March factory figures returned to the vigorous upward trend
that erupted with January's 1.5 percent improvement that first convinced
many economists the recession was ending. Production was up only 0.3 per-
cent in February. Before December, it had gone up only twice in 17 months.
Peking protests Pan Am flights
PEKING - Already strained U.S.-China relations came under new ten-
sion yesterday, with aviation sources saying Peking threatens "severe
repercussions" if Pan American Airways resumes flight to Taiwan in June
as scheduled.
The dispute is raging at a time when relations are badly strained by the
U.S. decision to give political asylum to Chinese tennis player Hu Na. In
reprisal, China suspended all official sports and cultural exchanges with the
United States.
Pan Am's plans to resume flights to Taiwan has been the subject of quiet
protests by CAAC, China's state airline, for some time.
But with the June 16 date for the resumption of services to Taiwan drawing
near, the protests have been stepped up lately, aviation sources said.
China last month sent a protest to the U.S. Civil Aviation Board, which is
expected to reply within the next two weeks. "CAAC has said there will be
severe repercussions if the flights resume." an aviation source said.
Pan Am is the only U.S. airline with passenger service to China, which
regards Taiwan as a renegade province that one day must be reunified with
the mainland.
Kohl urges U.S.-Soviet talks
WASHINGTON - West German Chancellor Helmut Kohl said yesterday
he believes Moscow has not locked the door on U.S. nuclear arms proposals
and urged President Reagan to make "personal contacts" with Soviet leader
Yuri Andropov.
Kohl, leader of a West German conservative coalition, made his remarks
following a 212-hour Oval Office meeting and lunch with Reagan.
"It is our belief we have not yet heard the last word from the Soviet
Union," Kohl said, appearing to push for an early summit meeting between
Reagan and Andropov on nuclear arms control.
Reagan called on the Soviets to "respond seriously" to his latest proposal
for deploying equal numbers of intermediate range missiles in Europe.
"If Soviet intransigence makes agreement impossible," Reagan em-
phasized, the United States will go ahead with plans to deploy the Pershing-2
and cruise missiles in Germany in December.
Shultz warns Nicaraguan plot
WASHINGTON - Secretary of State George Shultz said yesterday that
"all of Central America" is a target of Nicaragua's subversion, and ex-
pressed concern that the Soviet Union may deploy nuclear missiles in that
In a wide-ranging review of the administration's Central America policy,
Shultz also said a solid majority of the people of El Salvador view the
prospect of a guerrilla victory there as a "frightening phenomenon."
Shultz's remarks were prepared for delivery in Dallas to the World Affairs
Council and the Chamber of Commerce. A copy of the s'peech was released at
the State Department.
Shultz made no reference to allegations by some members of Congress
that the United States is engaged in a covert operation in Nicaragua aimed
at toppling the Sandinista government.
But he made clear his view that vital American security interests are at
stake in Central America.
"Central America is so close that its troubles automatically spill over onto
us, so close that the strategic posture of its countries affects ours, so close
that its people's suffering brings pain to us as well," he said.

They also may be risking their

son risks gaining a bad reputation

"The network works," Holbrook said.
"Very difficult problems face anyone
who blows the whistle."
But Holbrook said he believes that
students who decide to speak up help
alleviate the problem. If these cases
reach the public, that will have a
deterrent effect, he said.
THE RACKHAM student who did
blow the whistle agrees. "It only takes
a couple of examples to let the faculty
know they can't get away with anything
just because they have tenure," she
In fact, the panel that reviewed her
case recommended that the dean of the

graduate school at some later date
reveal that such a case has occurred.
"The conduct found in this case to
have been sexual harassment might not
have occurred if the meaning of that
term had been widely understood, the
possibility of its occurrence more
widely recognized, the effort to prevent
it a concern more actively shared, and
its painful consequences better
known," the report states.
NORDBY SAID that top University
officials are "extremely concerned"
about sexual harassment on campus.
"Whenever a case comes up, the
president, the vice presidents, and
deans are absolutely dead serious about
seeing that it is stopped," she said.
In the two cases that led to
resignations, Nordby said, the deans
took action promptly once the facts -
which she labeled "rather outrageous"
- became clear. The deans told the
faculty members involved that it would
be wisest for them to resign, she said.

In one situation, two students were
facing a mandatory course with the
professor in the semester immediately
following the complaints of
harassment, and it was necessary that
action be taken quickly, said Susan
Kaufmann, an affirmative action of-
The affirmative action office initiated
the grievance against that professor,
Kaufmann said, because several
students had complained about him.
Ordinarily, the office will not intervene
unless a student requests help, she said.
THE LEGAL statue of sexual
harassment on campus ias not been
established, Nordby said.
Sexual harassment is illegal under
laws prohibiting sexual discrimination
in the workplace. It also is thought to be
illegal under Title IX, which prohibits
sex discrimination in education, said
Jean King, an Ann Arbor feminist at-
torney. But this law has not been tested
in the courts, she said.

"It doesn't matter whether it is
illegal or not," Nordby said. "We are
proceeding as if it is. We simply cannot
have sexual harassment.on campus."
President Harold Shapiro outlined a
general policy against sexual
harassment in a 1980 memorandum,
there is no uniform grievance
procedure for students who wish to take
formal action against a faculty mem-
Each school and college must deal
with sexual harassment cases accor-
ding to its individual academic
grievance procedures, Nordby said.
That situation created great dif-
ficulties for the Rackham student when
she discovered that the medical school
had no formal grievance procedure.
Medical school associate dean Robert
Reed would not elaborate on that
In some cases, sexual harassment
problems can often be resolved without
resorting to formal hearings, Nordby
Students who have been harassed
have already suffered tremendously,
Kaufmann said, explaining that infor-
mal mediation by a third party is often
faster and less humiliating than formal
grievance procedures.

Police capture Turkish hijacker
ATHENS, Greece - Police stormed the cockpit of a hijacked Turkish Air-
lines jetliner at Athens airport early this morning and arrested the Turkish
leftist who was holding the plane's crew at knifepoint, authorities said.
Police said no gunshots were fired when they overpowered the Turk,
Mahmout Kalkan, who hijacked the plane yesterday while it was on a
domestic flight over Turkey.
Three armored cars, six police patrol cars and two trucks with 50 police of-
ficers surrounded the plane.
Kalkan, 25, threatended to blow up the plane with a bottle he said con-
tained explosives if police entered the aircraft, said an aide to Prime
Minister Andreas Papandreou. Kalkan released the 112 passengers, in-
cluding six Americans, after landing in Greece.
Marshall Lewis Johnson, Autralian ambassador to Greece, arrived at the
airport for negotiations with the hijacker after Kalkan demanded the plane
be refueled for a flight to Sydney, Australia.
