Cause of student's
death still unknown
Compiled from Associated Press and
United Press International reports
By RACHEL GOTTLIEB
Autopsy results released yesterday
failed to determine a specific cause of
death of former University graduate
student Elsa-Marja Korhonen-
Ghaemmaghamni who died during a
class on Monday.
Medical Examiner Richard Burney
confirmed that Ghaemmaghamni suf-
fered from cardiac arrest, but said that
the cause of her heart failure was not
known. He did, however, rule out foul
play or contagious disease.
"THIS IS A tragic case, and there is
no obvious cause of her death," Burney
said. "It happens once in a while but not
very often. All we know is that she died
of natural causes."
The 31-year-old woman was in a
design class when she had the heart at-
tack. She fell over backwards on her
stool. Instructor Tividar Balogh helped
lower Ghaemmaghamni to the floor
and other students performed mouth-
to-mouth resuscitation and CPR chest
Despite the efforts of her classmates,
Ghaemmaghamni was pronounced
dead on arrival at University Hospital.
Ann Arbor Police Detective David
Jachalke called the assistance given by
the woman's classmates "admirable."
The woman's husband Kasar
Korhonen was out of town at the time of
her death, but he has returned to take
care of the couple's 20-month-old
Gaemmaghamni was in her first
semester of architecture school.
U-Club probe continues

owners upset. These bar owners contend
that the University - by serving non-
club members - is taking away the
city's share of non-University business.
"I for one, and I think most people,
regard it as unfair competition," said
Joe Tiboni, owner of Joe's Star Lounge
on Main Street. According to Tiboni, the
U-Club has not been acting as a private
"I would bet you that there's not a
club owner...who hasn't noticed the fact
that...they have to compete with the U-
Club," Tiboni said. "The U-Club isn't
playing fair," he added.
"I THINK that it would be safe to say
there's a finite amount of business in
this town," Tiboni said.
"I don't know if it's hurting
(business). It's definitely making more
competition," said Rick Novak, a
manager at Rick's American Cafe on

ACCORDING TO Tiboni, the U-Club
is often able to win these bidding wars
because they have the financial resour-
ces at hand.
But according to Cianciola, no local
bar owners have brought their dismay
to his attention. "They're entitled to
their own opinion and their own way of
doing business," he said. "There are no
bar owners that have given me a call or
talked to me relative to any concerns
they've had," Cianciola said.
However, he said that the U-Club will
be taking more extensive steps to make
sure no non-members get into the U-
AND THESE steps to ensure that the.
U-Club does not receive any additional
violations have included firing the bar-
tender who served the second liquor
control officer a drink.
According to Cianciola, the bartender
was dismissed because "staff had been
given special instructions to make sure
they check (I.D.s)."
Cianciola attributed the mistake to
The new U-Club admittance policy
means no non-U-Club members will be
admitted to the club, Cianciola said.
However, Cianciola said he is not
sure how this new policy will affect
scheduled shows such as Eclipse Jazz's
Abbie Lincoln show. Tickets for this
performance have been on sale to the
Cianciola said he did not know what
arrangements would be made about the
show and if it would be inside the U-

Miners reach tentative accord
WASHINGTON - United Mine Workers President Richard Trumka hailed
a tentative coal contract settlement yesterdy as containing "not a single
concession" and moved immediately to mobilize support for the pact.
Eight hours after he and fellow union negotiators achieved a contract agr-
eement with the Bituminous Coal Operators Association, an umbrella group
representing 32 major coal companies, Trumka was greeted with a standing
ovation as he arrived to brief fellow UMW leaders on the contract.
In keeping with a strict news blackout imposed on union officials by
Trumka during the contract negotiations, the UMW information on the con-
tents of the agreement reached in the predawn hours yesterday.
Although a widespread coalfield walkout would be averted with
ratification of the pact, Trumka hinted that the union might conduct selec&
tive strikes against certain independent companies if bargaining fails to
produce an acceptable agreement.
Vince Lucido, vice president of UMW District 6 said this year was the
"perfect time" to end the string of walkouts becaue of the poor economic
condition of the coal industry. According to the union, 55,000 miners among
its members are laid off from work.
Inflation highest in four month
WASHINGTON - Consumer prices jumped 0.5 percent in August - the
steepest climb in four months - as the costs of food, housing and clothing all
posted significant increases, the government said yesterday.
The Reagan administration said inflation was not heating up, but some
private economists were not so sure.
Even with the August gain, inflation for the first eight months of the year,
was running at an annual rate of 4.2 percent, only a slight deterioration from
The 0.5 percent gain in the Consumer Prices had risen 0.3 percent in July.
Clothing costs rose 0.9 percent, their biggest gain in more than four years.
while food costs rose twice as fast as they did in July and housing costs
posted a second big monthly increase.
Pope defends religious leaders
ROME - Pope John Paul II yesterday defended the intervention by
Catholic leaders in the U.S. presidential election campaign on grounds the'
church is obligated to speak on political issues "from an ethical point of
"The church cannot be involved in politics as such but the church as a duty
to express himself - herself - in all moral problems and developments," he
told reporters while flying home from a coast-to-coast visit to Canda.
Archbishop John O'Connor of New York and Bishop James Timlin of
Scranton, Pa., have criticized Democratic vice presidential candidate
Geraldine Ferraro - a Catholic - for her stand permitting abortion. The
Republican Party platform favors a constitutional amendment banning
Cardinal John Krol of Philadelphia has praised President Reagan for'
backing federal aid to religious schools. Democrats generally oppose such
aid, particularly tuition tax credits for parents whose children attend
WASHINGTON ,. A New Jersey congressman yesterday released a list of'
203 hazardous waste sites that threaten human health and accused the en-
vironmental Protection Agency of suppessing the list for political purposes.
Rep. James Florio, (D-N.J.), said the "EPA' unmistakable agenda in
withholding this vital information is to prevent passage" of a Florio bill that
would expand the federal "superfund" program to clean up toxic waste
"The administration also fears the role its shocking record on the en-
vironment could play in this election and seeks to avoid confronting this
powerful issue at all costs," Florio told a news conference.
"Fortunately, this blatantly political effort to manipulate the timing of
these disclosures has been defeated," he said.
He said the list, dated Monday, was given to him Thursday by an EPA em-
ployee "who remains concerned about the effect of these sites on the
surrounding communities and wants cleanup to get under way."
"Fortunately, we still have public servants who.cannot stomach the
agency's efforts to play politics with life-threatening environmental hazar,
ds," Florio said.
Army pays, too much for arms '
WASHINGTON - Pentagon auditors believe the Army paid about $84
million too much for the first series of a controversial anti-aircraft gun, i
part because buying procedures were not followed, a House membe
revealed yesterday. Rep. Denny Smith (R-Ore.), made available toreport-
ers a Defense Department Inspector Generals Office audit of the Sergeart.
York Division Air Defense Gun, made by Ford Aerospace and Com,,;
munications Co. of Newport Beach, Calif.
The audit also cited huge increases in spare parts prices for the gun, as
much as $1,804 - from $7,805 to $151,500 - in onE instance. It said, however,
that officials "took prompt and vigorous action t correct spare part
A Ford Aerospace spokesman declined comment on the report but termed
the contract "very favorable to the government."
A Smith aide said Ford was able to negotiate price cuts with subcontrac-
tors after the contract - a factor which should have reduced the price of the
gun - but that Army bargainers were not aware of the cost-reduction.

,y NEIL CHASE
A Washtenaw County Sheriff's
Department helicopter crash-landed in
the Huron River near Ann Arbor
yesterday afternoon, injuring the two
"We know they struck a telephone
line but we're at a loss to explain the
reason," said Lt. Carl Rinna of the
sheriff's department. "There had been
reports of a mechanical failure."
RINNA SAID three workers nearby
heard the crash, which occurred
around 3 p.m. in Superior Township just
east of U.S. route 23, and spotted the
craft upside down in the water. They
went out in a rowboat and picked up the
two men, who had freed themselves
from the helicopter.
The pilot, Sgt. Tom Gray, suffered a
broken arm and minor cuts. He was
taken to St. Joseph's Mercy Hospital
along with the passenger, Sgt. Jim
Abram, who sustained injuries to his
leg and hand. Both men were reported
in good condition last night.
At the time of the crash the helicopter
was en route back to the sheriff's
department headquarters on Hogback
Road, not far from the crash site. It had
just completed public demonstrations
in Saline and Ypsilanti.
Late last night a Michigan State
Police dispatcher said the investigation,
into the cause of the crash was still con-
tinuing. In Detroit, Federal Aviation
Administration official Maurice Fowler
said his agency had sent an investigator
to the crash. Because the helicopter
was publicly owned, he said, the FAA
had simply surveyed the scene and
would not be participating in the final

Baker calls suit invalid

David Foster, an attorney for York
Contracting said however, that after
the firm was dissolved Baker once
testified that he had only six creditors.
If that were true, only one creditor
would have to petition to file a bankrup-
BAKER SAID yesterday that Foster,
who questioned him during a creditor's
examination, interrupted him while he
was listing off his creditors and went on
to another line of questioning. Baker
said he knew at thestime of the exam
that he had only 17 creditors.
As to whether Baker was interrupted
during his testimony, Foster said "the
answer is a categorical, unequivocal,
Another attorney for York, Ken
Schneider, said at least two other
creditors told him they were contacted
by Baker before he filed his answer this
week and that Baker asked them not to
join in the suit.
Baker refused to comment on that
One creditor, Hubbs and Black, an
architectural firm in Ann Arbor,

Another attorney for York, David

shaking their heads in dismay and
frustration at students' flat rejection of
the proposed code.
Shapiro said he still opposes changing
the University's bylaws to remove the
requirement that student government
approve the code.
Currently, administrators seem
satisfied with trying to get this year's
,Michigan Student Assembly, a more
moderate group than last year's
student government, to adopt the code
with a few revisions.
"MSA over the past few years on the
campus has been liberal," said
Colburn. "But it's moving ... in a more
conservative way, a more reasonable
way, a more open way, if I can say
