WASHINGTON (AP) - The United
States told Prime Minister Robert
Mugabe of Zimbabwe yesterday it was
"very disappointed" with Zimbabwe's
abstention on a United Nations
resolution deploring the Soviet downing
of a Korean airliner, U.S. officials said.
But the officials, who briefed repor-
ters after President Reagan met with
Mugabe for nearly two hours at the
White House, refused to speculate on-
whether the-Zimbabwean vote Monday
would affect the administration's $65-
million aid program for the fledgling
nation in Southern Africa. The United
States had lobbied heavily for the
One source, speaking on condition he
nqt be identified, said senior U.S. of-
ficials in the meeting - he refused to
say whether Reagan mentioned it per-
sonalty - asked the prime minister for
his rationale in refusing to support the
U.S.-backed resolution.
MUGABE REPLIED that Zimbabwe
considers its seat on the U.N. Security


Council representative of its region and
consulted seven other governments
before casting its ballot, the source
said. The seven were said to have been
unanimous in urging that Zimbabwe
Officials did note that Mugabe
referred to the downing of the Korean
Air Lines jumbo jet with 269 people
aboard as "a horrible tragedy." The
resolution deplored "the destruction of
the Korean airliner and the tragic loss
of civilian life therein."
Despite the abstentions, Zimbabwe
and three other nations, the measure
obtained the nine votes necessary for
the passage but was vetoed by the
Soviet Union which, as a permanent
member of the Security Council, has
veto power over any resolution.
. The United States has preferred to
use diplomacy in dealing with South
Africa on the Namibia question, which
administration officials say can't be
resolved before Cuban troops are with-
drawn from Angola on Namibia's nor-
thern border.
Ann Arbor City Councilman Larry
Hahn (R-4th Ward)abstained from a
vote on Tally Hall at Monday night's
city council meeting. In Tuesday's
Daily, Councilman Larry Hunter was
identified as having cast the lone ab-
Charles William Lackey, of 1220,
Jones, Ypsilanti, is the correct name of
the man who lay down in the street and
was struck and killed by a 'car near the
corner of Main and Hill Monday night.
In yesterday's Daily, the victim's name
was given as William Lackley. Ann Ar-
bor police said yesterday that Lackey
had been pulled from the street by his
brother, but when the brother left to
call police, Lackey moved back into the
street in an apparent suicide. Lackey
had been reported as "despondent."
A caption in Tuesday's Daily in-
correctly stated that Dan Evans will
complete the term of the late Sen Henry
Jackson. Evans will fill the Washington
seat until a special election is held.

Soviets adding missile bases
WASHINGTON - The Soviet Union is building three new bases for mobile
SS-20 nuclear missiles to be targeted on Western Europe while negotiating
with the United States for reductions on both sides, Pentagon sources said
When complete, the bases will be able to house 27 missiles with 81
warheads. The Soviets now have 243 of these triple-warhead missiles aimed
at Western Europe and another 108 targeted on Asia.
Then Pentagon sources, who would not be identified by name, said the
bases are in a central area of the Soviet Union, but declined to-p'rovide any
additional information. However, one official said, "It may foreshadow a
plan to build more."
To match the SS-20s', the United States and its North Atlantic Treaty
Organization allies agreed in 1979 to deploy 572 new U.S. missiles in West
Germany, Britain, Italy, Belgium and the Netherlands. Deployment begins
in December unless agreement is reached with the Soviets by then.
Chrysler workers o.k. pact
DETROIT - Chrysler Corp.'s $1 billion tentative agreement with the Unit-
ed Auto Workers union won overwhelming approval yesterday from the
automaker's U.S. workers, UAW officials said.
The vote from nearly all of Chrysler's approximately 35 U.S. locals was
23,222-9,814, a 70.3 percent margin in favor of the agreement, which would
bring Chrysler's wages closer to those at the other Big Three carmakers.
The UAW said a handful of small locals had not reported in.
"I am very pleased," UAW Vice President Marc Stepp said at a news con-
ference. "The ratification figure probably is not as high a some of us expec-
ted. It clearly indicates that Chrysler workers are not completely satisfied
with the conditions of their employment, they're concerned about working
conditions ... and about managerial attitudes.
Some 56,000 Chrysler workers and up to 30,000 more on indefinite layoff
could cast ballots in the one-day vote, the UAW said.
The settlement, providing for an immediate $1-an-hour raise retroactive to
Aug. 15 plus another $1.42 in special cost-of-living payments and additional
regular cost-of-living adjustments over two years, was reached Labor Day.
The accord starts Monday and expires Oct. 15, 1985.
Birth control users opting
for sterilization over the pill
NEW YORK - Male and female sterilization for the first time has pushed
the contraceptive pill out of first place as a birth control method in the
United States, a report said yesterday.
Sterilization is the most common choice among couples who have com-
pleted their families, the report said, noting that the 11.6 million
sterilizations among such couples included 4.9 million vasectomies.
In contrast, the pill is ued by about 10 million American women, the report
Of other birth control methods, the study said the condom was third in
popularity, with about 4.5 million users, followed by the IUD, with 2.3
million, the diaphragm with, 1.9 million and vaginal spermicides with 1.5
Among other findings, the study said about half of unmarried and one-
third of married women said they would consider abortion if they had an
unintended pregnancy.
Fetus shots protect unborn
PITT BJFGI -, Doctors ihave shown for the first time that they can im-
munize unborn children against diseases like tetanus by vaccinating their
mothers during pregnancy, researchers said yesterday.
Dr. Thomas Gill III, who led the research at Magee-Women's Hospital
here, said the findings could have a "broad application" for poor Americans
and people in developing nations, where it is often difficult to immunize
children after birth against deadly diseases.
In his research, Gill said, tetanus toxoid given to pregnant women crossed
the placenta to the fetus, which formed its own antibodies agianst the
disease. Tetanus toxoid is a non-toxic form of the tetanus toxin, which is
capable of provoking immunity to the disease.
Researchers have long known that a mother's natural antibodies cross the
placenta, but researchers believe it was the first time it was shown that a
vaccine crossed over to the offspring, Gill said.
Justice Department orders
recall of GM X-body cars
WASHINGTON - The Justice Department asked a federal court yesterday
to immediately order the recall of 1.1 million General Motors X-body cars
with potential braking problems to avert an expected lengthy legal fight.
The department, which filed suit against General Motors asking for the
recall and $4 million in damages last month, filed a motion in U.S. District
Court seeking a summary judgment against GM without a trial. The gover-
nment argued that enough evidence has been submitted to substantiate the
"This is to avoid a long costly trial when we believe we're so right that it
should be decided now," said Justice Department spokesman Brad Mar-

The government filed suit Aug. 3 accusing GM of ignoring a brake problem
in 1980 X-body cars that caused some to lock and go into a spin. I said the
government has received 1,740 complaints, including reports-of accidents
involving 15 deaths, because of brakes locking on the cars.
A recall would cover the 1980 Chevrolet Citation, Pontiac Phoenix, Old-
smobile Omega and Buick Skylark.
