You've always dreamed of
learning tfy
This weekend, take the chance.
You've always wanted to experience the thrill of flying - of feeling an airplane alive under your
hands. To climb and soar. To take command over a seemingly complex array of dials and numbers
and controls.
Take it from us, the feeling is unbelieveable!
We're the University of Michigan Flyers - the Michigan Flyers for short. And this week, we're making a
special effort to get to know you.
Plane on the Diag.
Very early Thursday morning, we'll taxi one of our 3 Cessna 152 trainers all the way down State
Street to the diag. Thursday and Friday, a club member will be there to answer your questions and
schedule you for a "Discovery Flight" this weekend.
Discovery Weekend.
All day on Saturday and Sunday, September 24th and 25th (weather permitting), a club vehicle will
be available to drive you from the front steps of the Michigan Union to the Flyer's office at the Ann
Arbor Airport. There, for $20.00, you'll be treated to a Discovery Flight. A thirty-minute flight with you
at the controls, sitting in the pilot's seat with one of our fully-qualified instructors at your side. When
it's all over, you'll even get a pilot's logbook, with your Discovery Flight entered.
Join us!
Come see us on the diag and discover flying this weekend. You'll never be the same.

Workers right to hazard

LANSING (UPI) - Business and
Health organizations agreed yesterday
that Michigan workers deserve the
right to know when they are dealing
with hazardous materials, but split on
just how much employees should be
permitted to know.
At a public hearing on "Right to
Know" legislation, manufacturing
associations called for changes that
would protect trade secrets from theft
and provide a systematic method of
advising employees of chemical and
other health hazards.
DENNIS Muchmore of the state
Chamber of Commerce told the Senate
Labor Committee that business suppor-

ts the bill "if it can be made workable to
industrial standards."
The committee is expected to act on
the bill later this fall. Negotiations bet-
ween business organizations and the
proponents of the bill are expected.
"This is not to punish employers or
drive business out of state," said Scott
Tobey, head of the Right to Know Task
Force. "It's to make Michigan a
healthier place to do business."
CURRENTLY the bill would:
" Broadly define hazardous substances
to include a wide variety of chemicals
used in the workplace. Each material
would have to be labeled to inform
workers of potential dangers and

suspected health effects.
" Give workers the right to refuse to
work with unknown materials.
. Make information on industrial
chemical use available to workers'
physicians and other health officials.
Alvin Pressley, president of a Lan-
sing United Auto Workers Union local,
told the committee such laws might
have prevented the 1982 deaths of three4
workers in a paint solvent area of a
General Motors Corp. Fisher Body
Without passage of such a right to
know law, "you condemn hundreds -i
workers to horrible, premature death,"
he said.

20 held hostage in film lab


From AP and UPI
SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Three robbers took over a film
processing lab and forced 20 employees into darkrooms for
more than four hours yesterday. Sheriff's deputies killed one
bandit and arrested the other two before persuading the
workers it was safe to come out.
The employees, unharmed but visibly shaken, walked out
of two darkrooms in the warehouse-sized building about 10:15
a.m. Deputies had to coax them out by convincing them the
robbers were gone.
"THEY WERE not bound or gagged, and they were not
locked in. They were held in the darkrooms by fear,"
Sheriff's Lt. Gil Magness said.
None of the 19 women and one man at the Technicolor
processing lab, located in the North Highlands suburb, were
Investigators said the robbers apparently were looking for
a chemical that could be used to manufacture the illegal drug
PCP or angel dust. They said the ingredient is believed to be
in color processing chemicals but would, require
ONE EMPLOYEE who asked not to be ideiatified said when
she arrived at 5:40 a.m. she heard screams from several of
her fellow workers and saw a masked man with a long
"He was yelling at a bunch of women, seven or eight
women. They were screaming. He told them to get down on
the floor," the woman said.

and they were not locked in. they

-Sheriff Lt. Gil Magness
She and two other women escaped out a back door, ap-
parently unnoticed by the gunman, and flagged down a
trucker who called the sheriff's office.
One of the first officers to arrive was Deputy Jarritt Beck,
37, who was wounded in the shoulder by a shotgun blast from
a robber. Beck returned fire and killed the suspect, said Lt.
Max Davidson.
Beck was listed in stable condition at American River
Hospital suffering from a collapsed lung.
The plant was robbed two weeks ago by gunmen seeking
drugs for angel dust, and police suspect the same bandits
returned Thursday, Magness said.
The thieves asked the employees for a chemical, but the
workers told them they had never heard of it, so they stole
cash from the employees, coins from a soft drink machine
and cigarettes from another vending machine, authorities

"When there are already two people

hard to make that space attractive to a
new student," he said.
