House
condemns
Soviets
for plane
massacre
From AP and UPI
WASHINGTON - The House voted
unanimously yesterday to pass a
resolution calling for the Soviets to ex-
plain why they shot down Korean Air
Lines Flight 007 in a "cold-blooded, 2
brutal, barbarous attack on a commer-
cial airliner."
The condemnation of the Soviets
demanded they aid in the search for the
victims and provide reparatins to their
families.
the House resolution calls for an in-
ternational investigation into the
plane's downing, and declares that the
episode "will make it more difficult for
the United States and other nations to
accept the Soviet Union as a respon-
sible member of the international
community."
The House resolution accused the
Soviets of shooting down an "unarmed,
clearly marked civilian airliner," lying"
about it and then threatening to "repeat
its murderous act."
1"This cold-blooded, barbarous attack
on a commercial airliner straying off
course is one of the most infamous and
reprehensible acts in history," it said. Jooc

families of the victims, demanded a T. W. MCu

By NEIL CHASE
Union leaders lost their bid to organize the University's
clerical workers yesterday when state officials reached a
final vote tally on last May's hotly disputed election.
But Spokespersons for the American Federation of State,
County, and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) said the union
will continue its organizing efforts and may hold another
election as early as next May, despite the union's 79-vote loss.
THE DECISION came just weeks after the union decided
to drop a series of objections to the election process, since it
could have taken a year or more to settle the union's com-
plaints.
The final tally -1,246 votes in favor of the union and 1,325
against - was reached after AFSCME officials agreed
yesterday to let the Michigan Employment Security Com-
mission (MESC) count 138 contested ballots.
Most of the challenged ballots belonged to voters whom the
union said had supervisory or professional positions and

2 .cuts in aid I
to Israel
By KAREN TENSA
The City of Ann Arbor may send a let-
ter to President Reagan asking for the
removal of aid to Israel if a local
petition drive succeeds.
People for the Reassessment of Aid to
Israel +(PRAI),, the group behind the
petition, hopes to get 5,000 signatures
from city voters so their proposal can
be placed on the next city election
ballot.
IF THE petition succeeds, and city
council approves the action, a ballot
question will be added in the next elec-
tion asking if voters want a statement
requesting termination of aidsent to
Reagan, the Secretary of State, both
,d Michigan Senators, and the U.S.
d representative from the Second
Congressional District.
-s The statement reads: "The people of
d the City of Ann Arbor urge the United
, States Government to withhold foreign
economic aid designated for Israel by
an amount equivalent to that which
Israel spends to retain, settle and ad-
minister the Arab territories occupied
in and after 1967."
PRAI spokespersons said the
petition will be presented to the Ann
Arbor City Council in December regar-
dless of the number of signatures ob-
tained in hopes that the council will put
the question on the next ballot.TiC

ONE BALLOT, challenged by the commission because the
voter's identity was unclear, was left unopened because "at
this point, it doesn't make a difference," said commission
election director Julie Robinson.
AFSCME spokesperson Reggie McGhee said that while.
union organizers are "disappointed that we lost," leaders
were encouraged by the 1,246 votes for unionization.
He said that the union's permanent staff members
assigned to the Ann Arbor organizing effort will continue to
answer questions and to solicit support.

THE UNIVERSITY of Michigan's
Department of Safety regularly cir-

warn women of the dangers of sexual
assault, according to its director, Walt
Stevens.
Statistics show that an average af
three rapes occur on the Ann Arbor
campus every year. But Stevens said
the numbers may be higher, since some
sexual assault victims are reluctant to
press charges.

that state learned Tuesday it would not hold another
committee meeting for six weeks so representatives could

got at least one delegate gobbling. "Why six weeks from

Mrs. Norris likes to tell the story about one grateful

Chicago after living in San Francisco for years. One day
he called Class Reunion and asked if they could throw a
