BUT HUNT,who flew from Raleigh
to tour the Wilmington area, warned
people to stay inside the shelters
because Diana "is still a very

GM prepares UAW wage offer
DETROIT-General motors prepared yesterday to make a wage offer to
the United Auto Workers while a number of auto industry analysts predicted
the current contract would be extended in lieu of a strike.
The current concessions contract covering 350,000 workers at the nation's
largest automaker expires at midnight tomorrow. Ford Motor Co. announ-
ced that the same contract covering its 114,000 workers would be extended
pending a resolution of the GM situation. Ford spokesman Tony Fredd said
the extnesion, which is a formality, hinges on a 72-hour notice from either
The GM wage and benefit offer was expected late in the day. GM, in an
initial bid last month that was rejected by the union, offered workers a lump
sum payment of $600 in the first year of a contract, $300 in the second year
and no new money in the third year.
Iraq destroys Iranian convoy
MANAMA, Bahrain-Iraq said yesterday its warships attacked and
destroyed a four-ship "enemy convoy" in Iranian waters at the north end of
the Persian Gulf.
An Iraqi military communique, broadcast by Baghdad radio and
monitored in Bahrain, said the convoy was sailing through the shallow Khor
Mousa creek, heading for the Iranian port of Bandar Khomeini when the
two-hour attack occurred.
It was the third attack in three days reported by Iraq on ships in the Per
sian Gulf. There was no independent confirmation of the attack. The attack
lasted two hours, according to the communique, which did not identify the
stricken targets beyond saying it was an "enemy convoy."
"The Iraqi armed forces will deal Iran's supplies further destructive
blows, until Iran bends to the call of peace and justice," said an Iraqi
military spokesman over the state-run radio. Iran, which has been at war
with Iraq for the past four years, made no comment on the reports.
Marine shipping and salvage sources along the Persian Gulf said there
was no way for them to verify the claim independently. "That's too far up in
the gulf for us to be involved," said one shipping executive in Bahrain, who
spoke on condition he not be identified. "We have picked up no distress
signals from any ships today."'
Ulcers linked to smoking
BOSTON-Smoking appears to be the single most important cause of
recurring ulcers, and giving up cigarettes is probably more effective than
the leading ulcer drug for avoiding this painful condition, researchers have
Doctors have long noticed that smokers are more likely to develop ulcers.
The latest study concludes that they are also far more apt than non-smokers
to have ulcers come back again after they have healed.
The researchers found that Tagamet, the widely used ulcer-healing drug,
often keeps ulcers at bay. But smokers who take the medicine still have
more repeat bouts of ulcers than do non-smokers who doh't use it.
About 10 percent of all Americans have ulcers at some time during their
lives. This has made Tagamet, known generically as cimetidine, one of the
nation's most widely prescribed drugs.
"Smoking appears to be the most important factor in recurrent ulcers,"
said Dr. Stephen Sontag. "We analyzed for acid output, as well as sex,
duration of ulcer disease and other variables. Only smoking was
Some argue that smoking may not really cause ulcers. Instead, they say
these people have a "smoker personality." And it's the personality, not the
cigarettes, that make them susceptible to ulcers.
Pope blesses poor fishermen
FLATROCK, Newfoundland-Pope John Paul II blessed the hard-pressed
fishermen of this poor, rocky coast yesterday, and delivered a powerful in-
dictment of modern economies that fail to put "people over things."
Governments must change their economic systems and end chronic
unemployment, "so that human needs be put before mere financial gain,"
the pontiff told several thousand people huddled in this tiny, windswept
He then stepped directly into an explosive Canadian political dispute by
endorsing worker cooperatives and joint worker-management ownership of
the fishing industry, taking the fishermen's side in a battle with the federal
government over their economic future.
"Good fishing, safe passage and God's blessing," the pope said. John
Paul, on the fourth day of a 12-day Canadian tour, chose to emphasize
economic and family issues in this island province, where centuries of
isolation have made "Newfies'.' a poor and close knit community.
At an outdoor Mass later yesterday in the provincial capital of St. John's,
the pontiff praised those Roman Catholic couples who bow to church
prohibitions against artificial contraception and divorce.
State may sue to halt bible clubs
HOWARD CITY-Tri-County School District officials said yesterday the
threat of state legal action to halt voluntary religious instruction in their
elementary schools comes as "no surprise."
Phillip Runkel, state school superintendent, said he will ask the State
Board of Education next week to authorize Attorney General Frank Kelley
to file suit against the district to stop noon-hour "Bible clubs" which are held
in the elementary schools.
Runkel's statement came in response to the Tri-County School Board's
unanimous vote Monday to allow volunteers from Bible Center Ministries of
Jenison to hold the sessions at McNaughton Elementary School in Howard
City and Sand Lake Elementary School.
John Stevenson, Tri-County School Board President, said he does not ex
pect his colleagues on the board to reverse their position on the issue "on the
I threat of a suit."

CHICAGO - An elderly widow says
she didn't think there was anything
unusual about a contractor asking for a
$25,000 down payment plus $25,000 more
in installment payments to fix a leaky

MRS. ROLEK went to Citicorp
Savings on Monday and withdrew
$25,000 for the downpayment on the job.
Clerk Joyce Narducy asked her why
she needed so much cash and then
summoned James Ryan, a 22-year
police veteran who moonlights as a
bank security guard.
RYAN ASKED Rolek if she had a
contract for the job, and she produced a
piece of paper that stipulated she would
pay $25,000 immediately and make a
series of $5,000 monthly payments for a
total of $50,000.

The gun-toting suspect, who had

And Homyak wasn't a hero - even
though he gave it his best shot.
"I'm a little embarassed," Homyak
said. "And the Ann Arbor police did say
to me that it was better to be safe than
sorry," he added. "But geez, these
things don't happen to me every day."
Ann Arbor police Capt. Harold Rady,
said the department did not file a report
of the incident because no rules were
broken. The only casualty was
Homyak's bruised pride.
