PACT REQUIRES SIGNATURE TO PLA Y
Athletes agree to forego drugs
(AP)-Youngsters must be
under contract if they want to play
sports at two Michigan high
schools, but the- pact's provisions
have nothing to do with salaries or
The terms are no drugs, no
drinking and no smoking
cigarettes. The penalty for
failing to sign is no sports.

In the Detroit suburb of
Ferndale, athletic eligibility also
hinges on signing a so-called
"chemical health contract."
"If you won't sign it and can't
agree with it, then you can't be an
athlete here," said Donna
Giltrow, the public school
system's athletic director.
"We've had some real bad role
models from the pros, and it
seems to be drifting down here,"
The districts also require that
parents sign similiar contracts.
"WE HAVE met with no
resistance from athletes or
parents," Dye said. "In fact, we

Cork Chemical Health Program,
a four-year program that teaches
schools how to fight drug and
alcohol use among students.
The program gives schools the
option of requiring chemical
health contracts, but most schools
involved only require that parents
and students sign statements
saying they are aware of the rules

program, said Richard Maher,

and Soviet Foreign Minister
Eduard Shevardnadze negotiated
for long hours in Washington
and New York in recent days
over their fate.
Some sources in the United
States had said a broader deal
might also include the release of
some Soviet dissidents. And the
Soviets, at the same time, were
seeking relaxation of a U.S. order
expelling 25 Soviet U.N.
diplomats from the United States.
The U.S. government alleges that
some Soviet U.N. employees are
engaged in espionage.
At the United Nations, the
usually well-informed Soviet bloc
source said Shultz and
Shevardnadze had agreed during
a meeting Sunday night that
Daniloff and Zakharov would be
exchanged. . But the source
provided no further details.
In Washington, a source at the
U.S. Justice Department, which
brought the charges against
Zakharov, would not say what
deal, if any had been made for
Daniloff's release. He did say,
however, that Zakharov would not
leave the United States yesterday.
Like the Soviet bloc source, he
insisted on anonymity.

Plane crashes into houses
CHICAGO -A twin-engine plane crashed Sunday night into
three houses, setting one ablaze and killing the pilot, authorities
The pilot was the only person aboard the plane, and no one on the
ground was hurt, said Tom Sheppard, a fire department
The plane lost altitude shortly after take-off from Midway
Airport, hit the chimney of the first house, sheared off the roof of the
second, struck a tree top, then crashed into the back yard of the
third house, setting fire to its wooden porch, Sheppard said.
Authorities said earlier that three houses were set ablaze.
Officers on duty in a police station nearby heard the plane s
engines sputtering as it flew overhead, said Officer Darlene
"We heard it go over the station here and we knew he was in
trouble," Wicht said. "We hear planes go overhead all the time,
but we've never heard one fly over that low. This one sounded like
he was in trouble. I said to another officer 'I hope he gets up or we
might be hit.'"
Reagan to sign tax overhaul:
WASHINGTON- A few clerical details are all that stand in
the way of President Reagan's signing a major tax overhaul, a
plan aimed chiefly at increasing the fairness of the federal
Reagan said the bill, on whichthe Senate completed
congressional action Saturday, will give Americans "a tax code
they can be proud of." The president added he is looking forward to
signing the measure, which has been at the top of his second-term
But before he gets a chance to add his signature, Congress must
complete action on a 76-page resolution correcting typographical
and other errors in the bill. A Senate vote on the resolution was
delayed because some senators were upset that the House added
some substantive changes, which amend the tax bill itself.
Sponsors expect to work out those problems before Congress'
targeted adjournment date of Friday. Then, the 985-page bill will
be shipped to the White House for what is expected to be a full-blown
signing ceremony in the Rose Garden.
The Senate passed the bill by a 74-23 margin, and Sen.
Packwood, R-Ore., a chief author, said fairness is its major
Israel indicts accused Nazi
JERUSALEM-Israel indicted retired U.S. autoworker John
Demjanjuk yesterday on charges of herding hundreds of
thousands of people to their deaths in a Nazi concentration camp
during World War II.
The Ukrainiani-born Demjanjuk, 65, was charged in a 26-page
indictment with "crimes against the Jewish people, crimes against
humanity, war crimes and crimes against minorities."
Demjanjuk, formerly of Cleveland, Ohio, is accused of being
the sadistic guard "Ivan the Terrible" at the Treblinka death camp
in Nazi-occupied Poland where at least 900,000 people, mostly
Jews, were killed.
The charge sheet, presented at Jerusalem District Court, said
Demjanjuk's alleged crimes were "of incomparable severity."
It accused Demjanjuk of the "murder of numerous
Jews...whom he tormented to death," and described other alleged
crimes including the cutting-off of a prisoner's ear.
The charges against Demjanjuk carry a maximum sentence of
the death penalty.
Judge rejects park ordinance
DETR IT-A judge yesterday struck down as unconstitutional
a Detroit suburb's ordinance barring non-residents from its parks.
Wayne County Circuit Judge Marvin Stempien ruled that
Dearborn's law was unconstitutional at two parks-Ford Woods and
Crowley-because it was racially discriminatory.
He also ruled that the ordinance was unenforceable at all city
parks because the proposed method of keeping non-residents out of
the parks would intrude on the liberty and privacy of all park users.
The ruling was a victory for the National Association for the
Advancement of Colored People and the American Civil Liberties
Union, which alleged that the ordinance wasmeant to keep blacks
out of Dearborn's parks and that it would result in blacks being
illegally searched and detained in the parks.
Flash floods hit Michigan
Michigan's Lower Peninsula braced yesterday for up to two
more inches of rain as a line of severe thunderstorms from Benton'
Harbor to Saginaw threatened to renew the flooding which caused
millions in damage earlier in the, month.
Thousands of residents around the state lost power Sunday
evening as the storms brought hail and lightning, which sparked a
Tuscola County house fire that killed a 16-year-old Millington
A flash flood watch remains in effect until 8 p.m. today in 32
counties across the southern two-thirds of the state, said National
Weather Service meteorologist Dan Houser.
With acres of farmland in the Thumb still soaked from storms
which caused $323 million in damage in 22 Lower Peninsula
counties in mid-September, residents have been told to keep an eye
out for more flooding.
American newsman Nicholas Daniloff waves as he arrives at Frankfurt
International Airport yesterday. Daniloff, accompanied by U.S. Am-
bassador to Germany Richard Burt, arrived from Moscow where he was
released after being arrested four weeks ago on spying charges.

That price will most likely be
Zakharov. But Tanter believes a
swap sends the wrong signal to the
Soviets because it would enable
them to arrest and exchange
prominent U.S. citizens for Soviets
arrested in this country.
Tanter said that if Reagan
agrees to a swap, it is because of his
interest a superpower summit.
Such a decision would indicate to
the Soviets that Reagan is
interested in promoting peace.
THE MOVE, however, would
weaken Reagan's position at the
summit, Tanter said. "The Soviets
would have won round one and the
game hasn't even begun," he said.
"Reagan wants to go down in
history as a peacemaker. In his
rush toward peace, he may have

Political science Prof. Alfred
Meyer believes that the Soviets
released Daniloff because "they are
sick and tired of the trouble it would
cause." Meyer said Zakharov will
probably be freed eventually as part
of a trade.
MEYER criticized the admini-
stration's handling of the Daniloff
affair, saying that Reagan
overplayed the issue when Daniloff
was captured. If the admini-
stration had been calm about the
entire affair, he said, it would have
blown over a while ago.
Meyer said the two countries are
"playing little games." The United
States sparked the incident by
seizing Zakharov- the first Soviet
official arrested by the U.S-and
the Soviets responded by arresting
Regardless of the cause of
Daniloff's release, Tanter said,
"The summit has begun."
