Levy takes over
for ai*ling Begin


Prime Minister David Levy took over
as acting leader of Israel yesterday in
place of ailing Menachem Begin.
Begin, 70, who has announced his in-
tention to quit but has not yet formally
resigned, has not left his official
residence for a week.
"The Prime Minister does not feel
well, that is not a secret," said Levy, 45,
who recently unsuccessfully challenged
Foreign Minister Yitzhak Shamir to

succeed Begin as head of the Herut
Levy took over as acting prime
minister, but Shamir was expected
eventually to replace Begin in the top
Levy said authority was transferred
to him to act as prime minister under
Israeli law. The law states that when a
prime minister is unable to fulfill his
duties or is outside the country, the
deputy prime minister takes over.

Union loses in final tally

(Continued from Page 1)
The union must obtain signature car-
ds from 30 percent of the University's
clerical workers before AFSCME can
file to hold another election.
That election could come as early as
next May, according to elections direc-
tor Robinson, depending upon when the
employment commission officially cer-
tifies the election results..
UNDER MESC rules, the union must
wait at least a year after an election
before holding another one. Robinson

said MESC could certify yesterday's
results as of last May, giving the union
the right to hold an election in May 1984.
University officials said they were
pleased to see an end to the election, but
said they did not consider it to be a vic-
"The University's position on
unionization is that it's a right the em-
ployees have," said Assistant Person-
nel Director Edward Hayes. "The
University did everything it could to
encourage people to get out and vote."


For the students, faculty and staff of the University of Michigan and other
4-year universities. Offer extends thru September 30th.

AFL-CIO names companies
to anti-union 'dishonor role'
WASHINGTON - The AFL-CIO named five corporations yesterday to a
"dishonor roll" of the most anti-union companies - Litton Industries; Proc-
ter & Gamble; Faberge; Capital Cities Communications, and Indiana Desk
Howard Samuel, head of the AFL-CIO Industrial Union Department that
issued the list, told a news conference he will press a media campaign again-
st the five and seek congressional passage of legislation to prohibit major
labor law violators from obtaining government contracts.
"The stridently anti-worker activities of these companies are not serving
the cause of good labor relations," Samuel said in a statment.
Litton Industries received the brunt of the attack, with the department
saying it has engaged in union-busting campaigns that "routinely include in-
terrogating, threatening, spying on, harassing, suspending, and firing union
"Our attitude is not one of union busting. It is one of economics," said
Litton spokesman Ray Noble. "If we shut down and move a plant, it is not
due to union-busting or labor strife."
Sheriff convicted of torture
James C. "Humpy" Parker, 47, the former sheriff of San Jacinto County,
and two of his deputies, John Glover, 65, and Carl Lee, 63, were convicted of
conspiring to violate the rights of prisoners by subjecting them to water tor-
The defendants were convicted on all counts except for Lee, who was found
innocent on one of four charges of depriving liberty to the inmates.
The jury deliberated for about five hours before returning the verdict in
U.S. District Court in Houston.
Each of the defendants sat stoically at the defense table as the court clerk
read the verdicts. I
The conspiracy conviction carries a maximum penalty of a $10,000 fine
and 10 years in prison. Each of the other counts they were convicted on could
result in a year in prison and a $1,000 fine.
Regan and Feldstein differ
on impact of budget deficits
WASHINGTON - Underscoring his dispute with Treasure Secretary
Donald Regan, President Reagan's chief White House economist said
yesterday the government's huge budget deficits are driving up interest
rates and "doing very substantial damage" to U.S. industry.
The views expressed by Martin Feldstein, chairman of the president's
council of Economic Advisers, in a speech before the Chamber of Commerce
of the United States, were dismissed by Regan in caustically worded
remarks prepared for a separate meeting With automobile dealers.
Regan said such ideas about the impact of deficits on interest rates are
contentions that "everybody believes" but cannot prove. He said there is no
conclusive link between deficits and high interest rates. Neither official
mentioned the other, keeping intact the unwritten ground rules for their long
and increasingly barbed disagreement.
Feldstein said large budget deficits "undoubtedly" push up interest rates,
producing an overly strong dollar and record foreign trade deficits that "are
doing very substantial damage to major segments of American industry."
Navy hunts for plane remains
JAPAN - The U.S. Navy began hunting yesterday for the "black box"
from the South Korean jumbo jet shot down by a Soviet interceptor over
Sakhalin Island. Japanese searchers, meanwhile, found a still-ticking
Mickey Mouse watch and part of the body of a fourth victim.
Currents in the Sea of Okhotsk have moved bits and pieces of the airliner
south since the jet and the 269 people aboard-went down. About 1,000
Japanese police and volunteers are searching the 240-mile long northern
shore of Japan's northernmost island of Hokkaido.
The U.S. Navy tug Narragansett began probing 600 to 900-foot depths off
Hokkaido for the black box, which contains in-flight recordings that might
provide more clues to the plane's last moments. The box emits a pinging
signal that can be detected by an electronic device aboard the Narragansett.
Japanese officials said portions of a body were found yesterday. Like three
other battered bodies and three small body fragments found thus far, it was
taken to a hospital morgue.
A resident of Shari, part of the Hokkaido coastline, found several pieces of
debris floating together, including a still ticking Mickey Mouse watch
believed to have been worn by one of the victims, police reported.
Court denies mall petitioning
LANSING - A divided Michigan Court of Appeals ruled yesterday the
Michigan Citizens Lobby has no constitutionally protected right to solicit
petition signatures in shopping malls.
MCL officials immediately vowed to appeal the ruling, which came in a
1982 Kent County case, saying it would cripple future campaigns to place
laws and constitutional amendments on the ballot.
According to the court, MCL workers showed up at the Woodland Mall on
April 3, 1982 to solicit signatures for their proposal banning automatic utility
rate increases.

Three days later, the mall obtained a restraining order against the con-
sumer-oriented group and later that month, a permanent injunction was en-
The appeals court majority concluded there is "no open-ended invitation
to the public to use Woodland Mall for any and all purposes.
