Ann Arbor residents will feel the
benefits of deregulated phone service
this fall when Michigan Bell begins to
give customers direct access to the long
distance company of their choice.
Beginning Dec. 1 Michigan Bell will
allow phone customers to hook up to
any long distance company by just
dialing "1." Ann Arbor residents can
arrange service with one of five long
,distance services-AT&T, MCI,
SPRINT, and credit card calling
through Sears or American Express.
AT&T will continue to service
customers who fail to make
arrangements with other long distance
companies, according to Bob
Wroblewski, a representative for

ST. LOUIS (AP) - United Auto
Workers leaders from around the
nation yesterday endorsed the union's
tentative contract with General Motors
Corp., and will send it to 350,000
workers for ratification.
The union's 300-member GM Council
approved the contract by an over-
whelming show of hands at its meeting
in St. Louis.
DISSENTERS said the pact would
not keep GM from sending jobs to non-
union shops or to the Orient, where
labor is cheap.
But UAW President Owen Bieber has
said the contract would provide "in-
novative" means of preserving jobs.
Job security was the union's No. 1
goal in bargaining this year. Meetings
will be held beginning soon at 149 UAW
locals in 27 states to discuss the corn-
ples settlement, said chief, UAW
bargainer Donald Ephlan. All votes
must be reported by Oct. 14, he said.

of Bieber's negotiating team, issued a
formal minority report yesterday

"Not one job is protected against
plant closing, outsourcing or new
technology," declared Kelly, a
longtime union dissident. Outsourcing
is an auto industry term for subcontrac-
ting of labor outside a company.
A 23-page summary of the contract
was released to the public and union
members, but the UAW said it would
keep the 417-page contract secret until

However, the three-year pact would
provide for wage increases amounting
to $8,730 for the average worker over
the life of the contract, assuming a con-
stant inflation rate of 5 percent.

pany will do what it can to keep jobs at

be bought out for $10,000 if they have
less than two years' seniority to $55,000
for those with 25 years' seniority.

than previous UAW auto contracts -

The showdown was set for sunset.
The members of South Quad's Gomberg House
Council strode into the office Building Director, Mary
Antieau, at 5 O'clock yesterday.
BEHIND THE closed doors of her office they
discussed the question of the Gomberg House t-

It all began two weeks ago.
The House Council opened up the annual house t-

Director. Dawn Sagorski was present at the vote
and recommended that the word "keg" be removed
from the keg. That change would make the shirt
"fine," he quoted her as saying.
During the week following the vote Sagorski took
the design to Antieau, a strong supporter of drinking
policy reforms. Antieau said the t-shirt "flaunted

we could not do the shirt," explained Dave Litchman,
the House's vice president and treasurer.
The root of the disagreement, explained Steve Lyn-
ch, a Gomberg House resident adviser, "has to deal
with the new University alcohol policy." The alcohol
policy, approved by the Housing officials, went into
effect Jan. 1. It prohibits the use othall fUnds to buy

As sunset marked the beginning of
Rosh Hashanah, yesterday found many
students torn between attending class
and celebrating the Jewish New Year
with their families.
Students said the holiday, to be ob-
served through sundown tomorrow, is a
time for new beginnings, assessment of
the year's progress, and reflection on
the year's sins.
"IT'S A HAPPY event," said Licia
Groner, a freshwoman. "You eat a lot,
you go to services to ring a happy new
But other students, especially fresh-
persons, said they wished they could be
with their families.
"It makes me really sad not to be
with my family," said Lorin Rosen, an
LSA sophomore. "Tonight, eating in the
cafeteria I had this pit in the bottom of
my stomach, knowing that my whole
family is together. But I can't afford to
"THE MAJORITY of Jewish holidays
are family-oriented," said Amy Levin,
also a freshperson. "one of the things
I'm aware of is that I'm really away.
Everybody in my family is together,
and I'm not there."

Approval came after adoption of an amendment agreed to
by all segments of the tobacco industry, including growers,
distributors, warehousers and retailers, and by a coalition of
health groups, said Sen. Wendell Ford (D-Ky.) who fashioned
the compromise in the Senate.
THE LEGISLATION now goes to President Reagan.
Marlin Fitzwater, deputy White House press secretary, said,
"The administration took no position on the bill throughout
the debate and now that it's passed will have to review the
'legislation before Reagan decides whether to sign it."
"I'm certain the president will sign the bill because it is a
victory for both sides," said Rep. Albert Gore Jr. (D-Tenn.),
a chief sponsor of the bill. "The industry has demonstrated a

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) - About
1,800 clerical and technical workers
struck Yale University yesterday in a
dispute they say stems from unequal
pay for women. The strike disrupted
food service at the Ivy League campus
and prompted many teachers to hold
class in movie theaters and churches.
Local 34 of the Federation of Univer-
sity Employees, which represents 2,650
workers, went on strike at 5 a.m. after
its negotiators rejected the Ivy
League's school's latest contract offer.
The union has never had a contract with
Yale, and has been negotiating with the
university off and on since October
UNION officials said the school's of-
fer was "totally inadequate," but, Yale
President Bartlett Giamatti said it was
all the university could afford.
No new negotiations were scheduled.
The strike is the fifth in the past 16
years at Yale. The last one was in 1977,
when maintenance and food workers
walked off their jobs for 82 days.
The strikers want a three-year con-
tract with across-the-board salary in-
creases and step raises totaling 38 per-
cent. They also want assurances there
will be no layoffs because of the con-
tract's financial effects.
WOMEN represent roughly 82 per-
cent of the local's members.
"As women, we have always settled
for lower pay," said Beverly Esposito,
an administrative setretary at the Yale

Wood said. "The only people I'd meet were business
associates. This way, the opportunites to meet people are
endless. It doesn't have to be at a happy hour."

THAT first round of tests is coming up and yesterday
was the last day for drop/add. But there's still time to
get out, and the people from Vail Associates are offering a
always a risk that you may never return to school. Many
residents of Vail, Kincade said, explain how they ended up
there: "I was on my way to someplace else...I stopped in
Vail - and here I am 10 years later." Even if you've never
been on skis in your life, Kincade says there are plenty of
jobs available in food service, day care, or snow shoveling.

Miami Beach, Fla., doctors found that chicken soup did a
better job than a cup of hot water alone of clearing stuffed-
up nasal passages. This nasal clearing not only helps a per-

may help the body's natural defenses gain the upper hand.
However, there is no proof that this actually speeds
recovery. "Chicken soup tastes good when you feel crum-
