nn Arbor
leads state
s jobless
'ate
declines
DETROIT (UPI) - Unemployment
.dropped during September in all 13 of
Michigan's major metropolitan areas,
with the Ann Arbor-Ypsilanti area
leading the decline, the Michigan Em-
ployment Security Commission repor-
ted yesterday.
The Ann Arbor-Ypsilanti area had the
lowest jobless rate for the month at 8.1
percent, as well as the sharpest drop,
down from 10.7 percent.
The Flint area registered the highest
unemployment rate at 14.5 percent, the
MESC said. It was a point higher at 15.5
percent in August, and 17.9 percent a
year ago.
The agency reported on Oct. 7 the
state's jobless rate had reached a two-
year low of 12.3 percent, down from 13.4
percent in August. In September, 1982,
the figure was 14.5 percent.
' S. Martin Taylor, MESC director,
said the number of people working
statewide fell slightly in September as
the number of seasonal jobs dropped.
But the number of jobs in the auto and
manufacturing industries increases
substantially during the month to par-
tially offset the loss in seasonal em-
ployment.
The Upper Peninsula, which had the
state's highest jobless rate at 18.8 per-
k cent a year ago, was down to 12.8 per-
cent in September from 12.9 percent in
August.
The Detroit area stood at 12.8 percent
in September, down from 14.3 percent
in August and 15.3 percent last Sep-
tember.
Figures for other areas (September,
August and last September) were: Bat-
tle Creek 11.7, 12.1 and 16.4; Bay City
13.9, 14.4 and 14.8; Benton Harbor 13.3,
13.8 and 16; Grand Rapids, 10.3, 10.8
and 10.9; Jackson 14.4, 14.7 and 15.8;
Kalamazoo-Portage 9.9, 10.3 and 10.7;
Lansing-East Lansing 9.1, 10.1 and 11.1;
Muskegon-Norton Shores - Muskegon
Heights 14.2, 15.1 and 17.6 and Saginaw
:11.8,12.7 and 14.2 percent.

U.S. House kills bill for

more

domes

WASHINGTON (AP) - The House rebelled 206-203 last night
and killed a stopgap money bill to which Democratic leaders
had worked all day to attach nearly $1 billion for education
and social services that had been cut at President Reagan's
urging.
BUT AFTER first accepting the additional spending, the
House rejected the entire bill.
Majority leader Jim Wright (D-Texas) offered no ex-
planation for the defeat, saying only, "Please don't ask me,
I'm just heartbroken."
As part of an effort to rstore some of the spending cuts
Reagan muscled through Congress during the first two years
of his presidency, Democrats, who control the House, offered
the amendment providing a total of $997.7 million for 18
domestic programs.
DEMOCRATS had said the money would fall within spen-
ding targets Congress set for itself earlier this year, but the
president would likely view it as a "budget buster."
Republicans used a parlimentary tactic to break the
amendment into 18 parts and force roll call or voice votes on
each one.
They managed only to remove a $43.3 million item for the
construction of model science centers at Boston University,
the University of New Mexico and Barry University in
Florida. That was dropped on a 286-122 vote.
DEMOCRATS then pressed for an overall vote - to allow
members to go on record for or against the entire package -

tic spendng
on the remaining $954.4 million, which carried 254-155, vir-
tually along party lines.
Wright, who offered the amendment on behalf of ~tfi
Democratic leadership, said it was necessary to restor
"money that has been harshly trimmed away from progranms
that we consider the very heart and soul of this Americani
system of ours."
The move, which is unlikely to be accepted by thi
Republican-controlled Senate, also provided an opportunity
to tweak Reagan for his rhetoric on behalf of U.S. education
"Everyone, including the president, agrees that bur
schools desperately need improvement," Wright said before
the House convened yesterday. "Almost everyone recogni2e}
tha the improvements will cost money.".
"States and localities are unable to bear the added burdeA
due to revenue shortfalls in their current fiscal year, te
reduced attractiveness of municipal bonds and depresg'd
property values in many places," Wright said.
The amendment was offered to legislation that would cotP-
tinue funding through Feb. 29, 1984 for government departnr-
ents and agencies whose regular fiscal 1984 appropriatio's
have not yet been enacted into law. A similar stopgap bil
already in place expires at midnight tomorrow. A veto fight
between Congress and the White House over the domestic
spending amendment or other provisions that may become
part of the legislation as it moves through Congress coul4
leave the affected agencies technically without money.

IN URGING the opening of production
lines for binary weapons, Tower said
"It is the right thing to do for our
national security."
Assistant Republican leader Ted
Stevens of Alaska said, "The Soviets
are not going to stay at the bargaining
table...unless we are willing to show our
determination to use these weapons.''
Stevens said the Soviet Union is going
full-speed ahead with the production of
its own chemical arsenal. And Sen.
Rudy Boschwitz cited evidence in-
dicating the Soviets used chemical

Kampuchea, formerly known as Cam-
bodia.
TO ATTRACT support for resuming
production, Boschwitz added a
requirement that the United States
unilaterally destroy double the amount
of older types of nerve gas whenever a
new binary weapon was added to the
arsenal.
Inside binary nerve gas shells and
bombs are chemicals which are har-
mless when by themselves, but lethal
even in tiny doses when combined. Af-
ter the artillery shells or bombs are en

aerve agas
route to their targets, the chemicals are
joined and explode into the air upon im-
pact. Opponents say the weapons could
kill thousands of innocent people
downwind from the battlefield.
Sen. Edward Kennedy said the
United States already has 200,000 tons
of conventional, unitary chemical
weapons stockpiled, much of it inside
155 millimeter artillery shells.
"THE COMMITMENT we need is not
to launching a new round of the nerve
gas race, but to eliminating these
gruesome weapons from the face of the
earth."

Parties struggle for Senate control

Democratic Lt. Gov. Martha Collins
ran in Kentucky against Jim Bunning, a
state legislator and former baseball
pitcher. Collins jumped to an early
lead. A victory would make her a
national figure overnight in a party that
cannot claim a single incumbent
woman governor or senator among its
ranks.
In Washington, voters decided
whether to return appointed Sen. Dan
Evans, a popular former Republican
governor, to serve out the remaining
five years of the late Sen. Henry
Jackson's term.

Evans was a heavy favorite, but
liberal Democratic Rep. Mike Lowry
has narrowed the gap by hammering at
Evans as an advocate of Reagan's
policies in Lebanon and Grenada.
IN ADDITION to being watched for
an assessment of Reagan's popularity,
the Washington Senate race was
studied for its bearing on the long-term
struggle for control of the Senate.
Republicans currently hold a 5-45
edge, but they will be defending 19 of 33
seats on the 1984 ballot, and Democrats
believe they have a chance to regain the
control they lost in the Reagan-led
sweep of 1980.

SCHAUER SAID the President has
such discretion only in true emergen-
cies when Congress cannot be a con-
sulted, and that rescuing American
citizens in a foreign country does not
constitute such an emergency.
Aleinikoff said rescuing American
medical students in Grenada would be
justification for the invasion, but said it
was a moot point because "The
American students in Grenada were not
in a dangerous situation."
BUT TED STEIN and Joseph Weiler,
both visiting professors at the Univer-
sity, said the request from the
Organization of Eastern Caribbean
States (OECS) did not justify the
American invasion.
"The conditions for the use of force on
the grounds of self-defense were not
available to the OECS, therefore they
could not call in the U.S." Weiler said.
"That implies that the U.S. actions
were illegitimate" and in violation of
international law.
