will not strike if a settlement
proposed at Friday's talks is
accepted by University officials
and TAs. Officials will not
reveal the terms of the proposal.
The proposal is not a formal
agreement between the Graduate
Employees Organization and the
University, but a compromise
suggested by mediator Edmund
Philips, of the Michigan
"WE HAVE to take that (the
proposed settlement) to the
members now," said - GEO
President, Alice Haddy, adding
that nothing has been signed yet.
GEO members plan to discuss the
proposal this Thursday. Haddy
would not discuss the proposal
Union officials will also ballot
GEO's 1,700 members this week
on the proposed settlement. If
members do not approve, a strike
authorization will take place,
according to Haddy. Results of
the balloting will be known in
approximately two weeks.
The Dispute between the TAs
and , the University centers
around economic issues. The

salary increase, a 10 percent
tuition waiver increase, and paid
TA training in all departments.

percent salary increase, a 3
percent tuition waiver increase,

NEW YORK (AP)- Secretary
of State George Shultz met
yesterday evening with Soviet
Foreign Minister Eduard
Shevardnadze in a fresh attempt
to win the release of American
reporter Nicholas Daniloff, U.S.
Shultz had no comments for
reporters as he and his aides left
his hotel for the Soviet United
Nations mission shortly after 8
Shultz was hoping to make
progress on the Daniloff case and
other problems before Shevard -
nadze's scheduled departure
Tuesday for Canada.
THE TWO met here three
times last week.
Shultz returned here yesterday
afternoon after spending Friday
and Saturday in Washington.
Asked by reporters at 6:30 p.m.
in his hotel lobby if he planned to
meet last night with Shevard -
nadze, the secretary of state said
only that he had a dinner
engagement with tennis star Ivan
Lendl with whom he had played
tennis earlier in the day.
BUT other officials, who spoke
on the condition of anonymity,
said Shultz and Shevardnadze
would meet later on.
The Daniloff case is one of
several obstacles blocking
progress on scheduling a second
summit meeting between
President Reagan and Soviet
leader Mikhail Gorbachev.
Daniloff, Moscow corres-
pondent for U.S. News and World
Report, was arrested in Moscow
last month and charged with
espionage. He was released to the
U.S. embassy in Moscow when
U.S. officials reciprocally
released accused Soviet spy
Gennadiy Zakharov to Soviet
officials in New York.
Tax debate continues
WASHINGTON - There were gloomy predictions yesterday that
the new tax code awaiting President Reagan's signature will be an
economic disaster, but supporters of the sweeping package K
dismissed such talk as sour grapes from special interests.
"As the special interests have been unable to retain their special
preferences and deductions and so forth, they've moved to this
argument that this is going to mean the end of Western civilization
as we know it," Treasury Secretary James Baker said on ABC. "Let
me tell you someting, it is not."
But a day after the Senate, by a 74-23 margin, gave final:
congressional approval to the broadest overhaul of the federal tax
code in a generation, politicians and economists still argued over
the impact of the changes on the nation's economy.
Concerns for the economy have been raised because the bill would
repeal the investment tax credit, a major job-creating incentive for
the past two decades, and shift $120 billion in taxes from individuals
to corporations over the next five years.
Shooting of officer mars
Detroit's "No Crime Day"
DETROIT- Detroit's first "No Crime Day" was marred by the:
fatal, possibly accidental, shooting of a police officer, but hundreds
of Detroiters cheered when a basketball star asked them to put fear in
Officer Everett Williams of Detroit was shot and killed Saturday
afternoon while he and his partner, both in uniforms, investigated a
breaking-and-entering report on the city's west side.
Williams, a city police officer for 12 years, was the fourth Detroit
police officer to die in the line of duty this year.
An unidentified man was held in the shooting, but had not been
charged, police spokeswoman Allene Ray said.
But the shooting didn't daunt Detroit Pistons star Isiah Thomas or
Mayor Coleman Young, both of whom joined more than 1,000 people:
on a downtown march and rally Saturday before a sold-out, $100-a
plate dinner at Cobo Hall.
Nidal fled Libya, expert says
Terrorist leader Abu Nidal, feeling-the U.S. eat, has decamped
from his Libyan headquarters and begun shuttling secretively
among Arab capitals, says an Israeli expert on the notorious-
Yossi Melman also writes that Israeli intelligence officials
suspect Abu Nidal, blamed by some for the recent Pan Am hijacking
in Pakistan and the Istanbul synagogue massacre, has ties to East
European secret services.
"Abu Nidal's organization is the only one which is able to
maintain a secret infrastructure in Eastern Europe," Melman says
in his new book "The Master Terrorist."
The 215-page study, published by Adama Books of New York, is
the most thorough summation yet of the deadly career of the 49-year-
old Abu Nidal, born Sabry a=Banna. And it makes it clear that his
group, formally called Fatah-Revolutionary Council, is by far
today's single greatest Palestinian terrorist threat.
Israeli intelligence specialists blame Abu Nidal for more than
100 terror attacks and 200 deaths in over 13.years, Melman reports.
Needy to receive half of
'Hands Across America'funds
LOS ANGELES - About half the $31.9 million gathered in the
Hands Across America project will be distributed to provide food
and shelter for the needy, leaders of the charity drive say.
A disclosure statement filed last week with the city social
services department revealed that as of July 31, the Century City-
based charity run by the USA for Africa Foundation had
approximately $15 million for distribution to America's poor.
Organizers still wish to gather in another $7 million in
uncollected pledges. If those pledges materialize, about 57 percent of
the money that the May 25 transcontinental human chain amassed
will go to charity. If they do not come in, the percentage will be about
When USA for Africa President Ken Kragen first unveiled the
plan for a national hand-holding show of compassion 11 months
ago, he set a fund-raising goal of $50 million to $100 million and
estimated expense for the event to be $18.8 million. Expenses were
somewhat less than predicted.
Senate nears drug bill vote
WASHINGTON - The Senate is nearing passage of a $1.4
billion measure to combat drug abuse after backing off the stiffest
features of a counterpart bill passed by the House ordering the
military to seal U.S. borders against smugglers and establishing
the death penalty in major drug cases.
Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger said yesterday that the
House's demand that the military intercept all drug shipments from
abroad was absurd.
Interviewed on CBS' "Face the Nation," Weinberger said the
military is already "doing a very great deal," to fight drugs;
including sharing intelligence data with law enforcement
agencies and providing logistical help to other nations for drug
raids; as was the case recently in Bolivia.
The Senate plowed through a series of amendments to its bill:
early yesterday before ending a marathon day that also saw the:
Republican-controlled chamber pass a landmark tax-overhaul bill.
It will return to the bill Tuesday afternoon.
