SHE SAID that despite the increased
funds raised, Greek Week was less en-
joyable because one of the fraternity
houses paired with her sorority
declined to participate in many of the
competitions, disqualifying the whole
team from some events.
Of the 57 sororities and fraternities,
at least two or three failed to par-
ticipate in Greek Week.
Sigma Alpha Epsilon, one of the
fraternities which did not join the
week's ceremonies, said that it was a
"classical case of misinterpretations"
that caused them to drop out.
STEVE JONES, a member of SAE,
said that the trouble began when the
fraternity was required to throw a par-
ty for the two houses it had been paired
with. Because SAE had just had
another party the previous night, few
members attended the crucial pairing
party. Shortly after the unsuccessful
party, the fraternity received their
registration fee of $75 back from the

Greek Week steering committee. Later,
they donated the $75 to charity.
"We got the impression that (the
steering committee) didn't want
anything to do with us," Jones said.
"We had every intention of par-
Jones said that SAE has a tradition of
putting things off until the last minute,
but that they have always come
through to participate before.
But Tincoff said that the fraternity
was not kicked out of Greek Week. She
declined further comment.
Jim Schoenburg, a member of SAE
fraternity who was chairman of Greek
Week last year, said that the house also
complained that pairings were unfairly
made because some teams had more
members than others.
"We have 80 guys in our house, the
other fraternity we were paired with
has 60 to 65, and the sorority had 40
girls. That seems disproportionate."

Reports of South African shooting ,conflict

From AP and UPI
UITENHAGE, South Africa - A
police commander who gave the order
to shoot into a crowd of 4,000 blacks -
killing 19-- contradicted a government
statement that officers had been at-
tacked with bombs before opening fire.
Lt. John Fouche, giving testimony to
a jurist assigned to investigate the
March 21 incident, said he gave the or-
der to shoot because he was convinced
the crowd of blackmourners were

going "to kill white people."
Fouche added, however: "I believe
my men and I would definitely be
overrun and killed if I didn't give the
order to fire. My main reason in giving
the order to fire was to protect the lives
of my men and myself. When the
woman threw the first stone, I expected
there to be more."
Nineteen people were killed in the
confrontation March 21.
Fouche testified at an inquiry into the

shooting that there was no hail of rocks
and gasoline bombs before he gave the
order, as the government initially
The hearing is expected to continue
through the week, with testimony later
from black witnesses, who have been
quoted as saying there was no
provocation from the crowd that
justified gunfire.
Authorities reported incidents of
rioting yesterday in the black town-

ships of the eastern Cape Province,
where the shooting occurred, but no
deaths. At least38 blacks have been
killed in the area since the day of the
Police confirmed that army troops
were helping patrol the turbulent town-
ships in Uitenhage, Port Elizabeth and
other Cape areas. The opposition white
Progressive Federal Party claimed the
presence of the army was proof that the
police had lost control of the country.

Japan may open trade markets
TOKYO-President Reagan's special envoy left Tokyo yesterday with a
pledge from Prime Minister Yasuhiro Nakascne to announce within 10 days
a new series of measures to open up Japan's protected markets to U.S. com-
panies, sources said.
At the same time, the former telecommunications and tobacco gover-
nment monopolies were de-nationalized yesterday but there was no in-
dication if U.S. companies will be allowed to increase their participation in
these markets.
In a 90-minute meeting with Nakasone Sunday, Ga Sigur urged the
prime minister to help create "equitable market oppories and equity in
the regulatory process" for U.S. firms in Japan, Foreign Ministry sources
Sigur, accompanied by Commerce Undersecretary Lionel Olner, told
Nakasone that relations between the United States and Japan could be
jeopardized if Japan fails to curb a bilateral trade surplus of nearly $35
billion last year.
Duarte claims election victory
SAN SALVADOR-El Salvador-President Joe Napoleon Duarte yester-
day claimed a landslide election victory that would give his moderate party
control of the government for the first time since he took office.
The results of Sunday's legislative elections were a severe blow to the
rightists, who controlled the old National Assembly and had hamstrung
Duarte's policies. They had expected to keep or increase the majority they
held in the assembly for the three years of its existence.
Duarte told journalists yesterday the apparent win by Christian
Democrats represented "a stance of the people against the far left and the
right." He said he would continue seeking peace in the 51/2-year-old war with
leftist guerrillas through dialogues with the political right and left and with
the business community.
Official results from the Central Elections Council are not expected until
later this week.
Although the president was not a candidate, the election was widely con-
sidered to be a referendum on his first 10 months in office.
Poll shows euthanasia favored
NEW YORK-Doctors should be allowed to withdraw mechanical life sup-
port systems from comatose patients who will never regain consciousness,
say a majority of respondents in a Media General-Associated Press poll.
A majority also said they believed that people suffering painful, incurable
diseases should be allowed to end their lives before the diseases run their
The nationwide telephone poll of 1,532 adult Americans sought opinions on
issues from the care of deformed infants to treatment of the terminally ill.
More than two-thirds of the respondents said doctors should be allowed to
turn off respirators and other equipment when it has been determined that
the patients would never again regain consciousness. Only two in 10 said
doctors should not be allowed to take that action, and the rest were unsure.
More than the two thirds said people dying of incurable, painful disease
should be allowed to end their lives before the diseases run their course.
Pan Am sets tentative contract
WASHINGTON-Pan American World Airways reached a tentative con-
tract agreement with its flight attendants' union yesterday that includes a
pay raise and changes in work rules the airline says will increase produc-
Negotiators for the company and the 6,000-member Independent Union of
Flight Attendants reached the settlement about'12 hours after a union-set
midnight strike deadline passed without a job walkout.
Federal mediator Walter Wallace, who stayed with negotiators for both
sides during 27 hours of final-round talks, said terms of the agreement would
not to be disclosed until it was ratified by the union members.
But Pan Am Chairman Edward Acker praised the union leadership for
"demonstrating its support for the long-term objectives of Pan-Am." The
airline had been seeking concessions to lower benefit costs and change work
rules for flight attendants.
"This new contract provides significant work rule changes which will
greatly enhance Pan Am's ability to compete in a.deregulated environ-
ment," Acker said in a written statement.
The agreement included wage increases in excess of 20 percent over the
three years of the contract, according to a source familiar with the
negotiations who spoke only on condition he not be identified.
Mazda motor co. to open plant
LANSING, Mich-With a labor dispute apparently resolved, state officials
were optimistic yesterday that the new Mazda Motor Co. plant near Detroit
can be started on time.
Construction workers reached tentative agreement late Sunday with
Kajima International Inc., Mazda's construction manager. Details were
withheld pending ratification.
The breakdown of previous negotiations was one of two developments last
week that threatened to delay indefinitely the $450-million project.
The other was the decision of the federal Housing and Urban Development

Department to approve only a portion of the $6.5 million in interest-free
financing that had been expected.

THIS IS only the third time in the
history of Ann Arbor City Council that
the Democrats have had control.
"It is going to be interesting to be sit-
ting in the minority this time," Deem
said. "I do think we all better fasten our
seat belts because I have a feeling it is
going to be a rocky ride," added Deem,
who was celebrating his victory at
Holiday Inn-West.
He said there will probably be a lot
more discussion about involving the
city in more human services.
The Democrats have made affor-
dable housing one of their key concerns
during the campaign. Epton advocates
stabilizing the existing housing market
and encouraging developers to become
involved in state subsidy programs that
increase affordable housing for low-
income people.
EPTON SAID last night at the
Democratic victory party at the Ark
that he felt DeVarti lost because of a
low student voter turnout and because
the Ann Arbor News supported Hahn.
DeVarti, who puts out the Michigan
Cinema Guide and other publications,
said during his campaign that the city
and the University must work together
to ensure that the campus is safe.
The weatherization ordinance, which
wa's opposed by area landlords,
requires the following measures:
weatherstripping of doors and win-
dows, caulking of door and window
frames and installation of attic in-
sulation. The ordinance only applies if
the tenant pays all or portions of the
heating bill. The ordinance will be en-
forced by the city's building depar-
tment through routine inspecion of ren-
tal housing units.

no stranger to politics, having been a
council member from 1964-66 and a
state senator from 1979-82. He ran for
governor in 1982, but was soundly
defeated in the primary.
Hadler, on the other hand, has not
been as active politically. He served on
city council for two terms in the early
'70s, but has since worked on more
behind-the-scenes activities.
Hadler said one of his main reasons
for running was to try to keep the
Democrats from gaining control of the
council. He said the trends started by
Republican Mayor Louis Belcher, who
decided not to run for reelection, should
be continued.
A Democratic majority, Hadler con-
tended, bodes ill for the city's business
But he added that changes will not be
evident very soon. "I suspect the
changing of the guard will proceed
rather slowly," he said.
Observers of the race were surprised
by the relatively low turnout. Some
suggested that parents on vacation due
to Ann Arbor public schools' spring
break may have contributed to Pierce's
comfortable victory.
