Greyhound drivers reject
PHOENIX, Ariz. (AP) - Striking Greyhound bus
drivers and other workers resoundingly rejected a
company proposal to reduce wages by 7.8 percent,
with 96 percent voting against the contract offer,
union officials said yesterday.
But Harry Rosenblum, acting president of the
Amalgamated Council of Greyhound Local Unions,
said he didn't think "We'd be that far from a set-
tlement" if the company and union resolved certain
other issues in the three-year contract, such as a
proposed reduction in pension benefits.
ROSENBLUM, who told the company's chief
negotiator the results of the vote, expressed op-
timism that talks would resume soon.
But when asked the company's reaction, he said:
"They play good poker."
GREYHOUND Lines planned no comment until
today, when John Teets, chairman of, the parent
Greyhound Corp., will hold a news conference in
Phoenix to "announce important plans regarding
Greyhound Lines." -
Dorothy Lorant, Greyhound's vice president for
public relations, said Teets would discuss the union's
election results and other matters. She declined to
The Amalgamated Transit Union, which represen-
ts 12,700 Greyhound workers, struck Nov. 2 over a
proposed contract calling for a 9.8 percent salary cut.
Greyhound said it needed the pay cuts to remain
competitive with deregulated airlines and other bus
ROSENBLUM said the company's argument that
many of the drivers would be willing to come back
had been rebuffed by the voting.
"They turned down the first contract offer by a
margin of 98.3 percent and the 96 percent vote on this
'offer doesn't show that much erosion," said Rosen-
The official tally was 9,181 to 325 against the com-
pany offer. The vote count came out to 96 percent op-
posed, 3 percent in favor and about 3,000 employees
When the Amalgamated Transit Union went on
strike, the company shut down operations for two
weeks. Under its limited resumption of service,
Greyhound is operating in 27 states and has been of-
fering half-price fares to attract passengers.

U.S. warplanes fly over Beirut
BEIRUT, Lebanon - U.S. jets thundered over Beirut yesterday after two
overnight attacks on American Marines, and gunners shelled the capital's
harbor for the first time since the summer of 1982.
The American jets flew reconnaissance sorties over Beirut and nearby
hills after the attacks on Marine positions. The shooting caused no casualties
to the Marines and only minor damage to the Beirut airport where the
Marines are stationed.
The artillery and rocket-propelled grenade attacks on the U.S. Marine
contingent at Beirut's international airport came before midnight and at
daybreak, said a Marine spokesman, Maj. Dennis Brooks.
Fquipment held from Guatemala
WASHINGTON - The Reagan administration, upset over a resurgence of
human rights violations in Guatemala, is delaying the sale of helicopter pars
ts to the Central American nation's rightist military government, officials
State Department officials, who spoke on condition they not be identified,
said the delay reflects U.S. concern over the upturn in political violence -
including attacks against employees of U.S.-funded educational programs.
The officials said an earlier approval for the sale is not formally under
review, but some senior officials want it withdrawn and, in the meantime;
final permission for a $2 million purchase of military helicopter parts is being
held up to signal U.S. displeasure.
Blanchard vetoes abortion ban
LANSING - Gov. James Blanchard yesterday vetoed a ban on welfare
abortions, setting the stage for a pre-Christmas showdown with the
legislature on the highly emotional issue.
The Senate is likely to override Blanchard, but the vote in the House
remains too close to call.
Abortion foes have been waging a fierce lobbying campaign, including
preparation of a study which indicates a higher than normal percentage of
welfare recipients are undergoing the operations.
They urged Blanchard, without success, not to veto the bill.
Court upholds Florida execution
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - A federal appeals court refused yesterday to delay the
execution of convicted murderer Robert Sullivan, scheduled less than 24
hours away, setting the stage for a last-minute appeal to the U.S. Supreme
A three-judge panel of the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta
voted 2-1 against a stay after hearing nearly two and one half hours of
argument. Judge R. Lanier Anderson dissented, saying Sullivan's claim that
he was a victim of racial discrimination - he is white - should entitle him to
Sullivan, 36, has spent 10 years on Florida's death row, longer than any
other condemned prisoner in the nation, following his conviction in the rob-
bery-murder of a Homestead restaurant employee.
Nigerian airline accident kills 53
LAGOS, Nigeria - A Nigerian Airways airliner with 74 people on board
crashed yesterday as it made a landing approach, killing at least 53 people,
news reports said. A survivor said the pilot complained the fog was making
it hard to see the landing approach. 4
At least 18 people survived, the Nigerian News Agency said. Rescuers
were looking for the three people still unaccounted for.
The Nigerian reports did not say how many foreigners might have been on
The Fokker F-28 was on a morning flight from Lagos, Nigeria's capital, to
Enugu, 300 miles east. It crashed into a farm about two miles from Enugu
airport, news reports said.
The last major crash involving a Nigerian Airways plane was in 1971,
when 87 people were killed in the northern city of Kano.
In March 1978, a Nigerian Airways airliner and a Nigerian air force plane
collided in the air and exploded over northern Nigeria, killing 18 people, ac-
cording to Nigerian news reports.
W. Germany says Soviets will
continue arms talks with U.S.
BONN, West Germany - Chancellor Helmut Kohl said yesterday the Soviet
Union has signaled a willingness to reconsider its walkout from the Geneva
arms talks, but Moscow said the new U.S. missiles in western Europe make
further negotiations pointless.
The Soviet Novosti news agency also warned that the deployment of NATO
nuclear missiles also made success in separate talks on long-range missiles
more difficult to attain.
Kohl told a news conference that he recieved a letter from Soviet leader
Yuri Andropov Friday in which he expressed willingness for a continuation
of the East-West dialogue.
"The Soviet Union does not consider the situation that has arisen irrever-
sible," Kohl quoted the Anropov letter as saying.
The West German leader said his interpretation of the letter is that the
Soviet leadership is willing to examine the present situation and possibly
revise last week's decision to leave the Geneva talks on medium-range
missiles. The walkout came after West Germany approved the stationing of
new U.S. missiles on its soil.
But in statements issued by the official Soviet press yesterday, there was no
indication Moscow was considering a softening of its position.

After four years of college, you're

civilian jobs offer. Navy officers get the
kind of job and responsibility they want,
and they get it sooner.
Navy officers are part of the manage-

could take years in
private industry. And
they earn the decision-
making authority it
takes to make that
responsibility pay off.
As their manage-
ment abilities grow,
Navy officers can take
advantage of advanced education and
training in fields as varied as operations
management, electronics, and systems
analysis. In graduate school it would cost
you thousands; in the Navy we pay you.
And the Navy pays well. The start-
ing salary is $17,000 (more than most
companies pay). And that's on top of a
comprehensive benefits program that
can include special duty pay. After four
