Medical School. "But times have
changed and Yale has to change with
the times."
Yale's offer would provide a nearly 24
percent increase in wages over the life
of the contract, increasing the average
pay of about $13,300 by about $3,300 af-
ter 21 months, said Michael Finnerty,
vice president of administraton.

Some students and faculty members
joined the picketing. But Masha
Albrecht, a sophomore from Ithaca,
N.Y., who was handing out leaflets,
said it appeared to her that most stud-
ents were not supporting the strike.
"A LOT OF students are just mad
that they aren't being fed," she said.
"Many Yale students come from com-
fortable homes and not getting things

done for them here is new to Ujemi. It
makes them cranky." Robert Johnson,
a senior from Malverne, N.Y., said he
sympathized with the strikers, "but if
it's a choice of crossing a picket line or
not, I have to do it."
Faculty members were "deeply
divided" about the strike, said William
Kelly an anthropology professor who
joined the picket line.

WASHINGTON-House Speaker
Thomas O'Neill staved off a bruising
battle yesterday over a bill to ban ar-
mor-piercing bullet sales but angered
the bill's Democratic sponsors who
were spoiling for a fight with the gun
lobby.
O'Neill made clear to reporters that
he was in no mood for another confron-
tation over anti-crime legislation after
watching his majority forces battered
Tuesday in a day-long battle that
revived President Reagan's anti-crime
package, which includes language on
armor-piercing bullets.
THE SPEAKER pulled the bullet bill
from the House schedule so abruptly
that one of his chief lieutenants on
crime issues, Rep. William Hughes (D-
N.J.) spoke on the floor criticizing the
move. Reagan's anti-crime measures
were added to an emergency money bill
by a 243-166 vote Tuesday only hours af-
ter Democratic leaders had won a 218-
174 procedural vote many lawmakers
thought had killed the package for the
year.
The Republicans cornered the
Democrats into either casting a vote for
the Reagan program or explaining to
constituents why they opposed crime
legislation...
The Reagan measures would
eliminate parole in federal cases and
allow the imprisonment of dangerous
defendants awaiting tril in federal
court. They would provide for more
uniform sentences and place the burden
in insanity defense cases on the defen-
se. Drug dealers would face stiffer fines
and loss of their assets.
THE MONEY BILL does not include
Reagan-backed measures - to restore
use of the federal death penalty, permit
certain illegally seized evidence to be
admitted in criminal cases and cut
down on lawsuits filed by prisoners.
Regarding the armor-piercing-bullet
bill, Hughes said he was ready to do
battle on the House floor with opponents
of his measure, who lacked a less
sweeping version supported by the
Reagan administration and the
National Rifle Association. Hughes said
the only purpose of the ammunition was
to kill policemen wearing bullet-proof
vests.
"I understand the leadership just
pulled the so-called armor-piercing
bullet legislation because it's so con-

BOSTON (AP) - A non-smoker
whse family members puff more than
two packs of cigarettes a day actually
inhales the equivalent of one or two
cigarettes, a Japanese study shows.
The researchers used a urine test to
estimate the amount of smoke inhaled
by non-smokers on the job and at home.
ri general, they found that the smokier
the environment, the more smoke these

and smoke hurts non-smokers

non-smokers take in.
EVEN THOUGH many assume that
non-smokers breathe in the cigarette
smoke drifting through the air, there
has been little research until now to
show how much this actually happens.
The health effects of passive smoking
are still controversial, although some
experts believe that inhaling other
people's smoke irritates the lungs and

aggravates angina, among other
things.
The authors of the latest study
proposed restrictions on contact bet-
ween smokers and non-smokers "that
might mitigate the deleterious effects,
if any, of passive smoking."
THE STUDY, directed by Dr. Shigeru
Matsukura of Kyoto School of Medicine,
was conducted on 472 non-smokers. It

was published in Thursday's New
England Journal of Medicine.
To estimate the amount of tobacco
smoke inhaled by non-smokers, the
researchers took urine samples and
analyzed the amount of nicotine they
contained. Cotinine is left when nicotine
is broken down in the body, and experts
believe it provides an accurage
estimate of how much smoke has been
consumed.
The urinary cotinine levels were
highest among non-smokers whose
family members smoked more than 40
cigarettes a day. Their levels were
nearly identical to those of the lightest
regular smokers - those who smoked
less than three cigarettes a day.

... angers Democrats
troversial and under pressure from the
members of Congress," Hughes said.
"I regret that, because I consider the.:
legislation to be one of the major
initiatives in this Congress."
The 2.9 million member NRA has
been intensely lobbying against the
sales ban sponsored by Hughes and
Rep. Mario Biaggi (D-N.Y.), saying it
would be unenforceable. Even more
vigorously, the gun lobby said the~
measure would give the Treasury
Department the authority to ban hun-
ting ammunition-some of which also
can pierce bullet-proof vests. Hughes,
in his speech, attacked "the self,,
centeredness of the NRA and the short-
sightedness of the administration" in
failing to back the bill.

associated with the unnecessary deaths of over 300,000
Americans annually."
Ford said such declaratory statements normally are
served for the committee report accompanying legislation
Thd that they will appear in the report on this bill.
"By including the findings in the bill, they are no longer
merely statements but law, and can be used as such in court,
he said.
"THERE WAS also concern that including the findings in
the bill heightens their significance, closes the door on fur-
ther debate on the effects of tobacco and establishes a
precedent which state legislatures would be hard-pressed not

to follow regardless of their own inclinations."
The amendment also added language to the legislation
clarifying that responsibility for the labels does not extend to
distributors and retailers, but rests only on the manufac-
turers.
A third element of the agreement is not part of the
legislation, Ford said. It is "a commitment from the health
coalition that they will aid in efforts to get some restrictions
on foreign-grown tobacco," he said.
Representatives of a health coalition pushing the
legislation have said they are concerned about the use on
tobacco imports of pesticides and other materials banned in
the United States.
