Nurses intend to strike
Compiled from Associated Press reports
Israel, guerillas trade blows
MENARA, Israel - Palestinian guerrillas on a hostage-taking mis -
sion sneaked into northern Israel and killed two soldiers yesterday before
being slain in the bloodiest infiltration in seven years, the army said.
Hours later, two Israeli helicopter gunships rocketed a Palestinian
refugee camp on the outskirts of the south Lebanon port of Tyre, police
said. It was the first such attack since Israel's 1982 invasion.
The army said the strife was linked to a scheduled meeting in Algeria
today of Palestinian leaders to map out a new political and military stra -
tegy against Israel.
During a 14-hour battle Saturday in southern Lebanon, Israeli troops
killed 18 Iranian-backed Shiite Moslem fighters in the most violent
clash since Israel withdrew the bulk of its troops from Lebanon in June
Infant mortality highest in
Black counties, study says
DETROIT - A state panel studying ways to reduce Michigan's high
infant mortality rate will recommend that priority be given to 13 coun -
ties where 98 percent of black infant deaths have occurred, a newspaper
The Task Force on Infant Mortality will recommend in its final report
in May that public health efforts be focused on areas with poor black
populations, the Detroit Free Press reported.
Only nine states and the District of Columbia had higher infant mor -
tality rates than Michigan in 1984, the last year for which comparative
statistics are available.
The task force concluded the data "strongly suggests that the fund -
amental problem is not race per se, but the education and economic dep - }
rivation that afflicts black and other minority groups disproportionately."
Expert urges population curb
WASHINGTON - More than a billion more people are expected on
Earth in the coming decade, an increase that could pose catastrophic con -
sequences unless action is taken to reduce births, a leading population re-
"If we don't come to grps with this problem we'll face a world in tur -

His warning comes soon after a separate group, the Population Ref -
erence Bureau, reported that worldwide births have begun increasing
again, after a brief period of decline.
Fornos' study was released yesterday to mark the start of World Pop -
ulation Awareness Week, an effort to bring the problem to public atten

Barron said the proposals center
around an attempt to get the work
force of nurses equal to the work
load. Retention of nurses is low,
which has resulted in an increased
burden for nurses, according to the
The hospitals have approx-
'imately 1,260 nursing spots, and
about 180 of them are vacant.
The University has hired 49 new
nurses this year, making the
number of nurses employed by the
hospitals the highest ever, but there
is still a need for increased staffing
because demand for services has
also increased, according to Turck.
This shortage of nurses has
recently forced the hospital to close
temporarily 46 beds. The hospital
is licensed to operate 888 beds, and
until now it has been operating
Nationwide, hospitals have been
feeling the burden of a nurse
shortage. Fewer nurses are being
employed in hospitals because of
increased career opportunities, und-
esirable work conditions, increased
job stress. Enrollment in nursing
schools nationwide has dropped 8

Ape enjoys egg-celent Easter
CHICAGO (AP) - Batu the orangutan could sub for the Easter
bunny - given her talents at decorating eggs.
About 50 children and adults watched Friday at the Lincoln Park Zoo
as the year-old primate dropped about two-and-a-half hard-boiled eggs into
mugs filled with pink, blue and yellow vegetable dye.
"They were really surprised, especially when she put them in her,
mouth afterward," said zoo spokesperson Melissa McHenry.
Zoo keeper Pat Sass held the dexterous, 25-pound ape in her lap while
Batu decorated the eggs, used in an Easter egg hunt for the zoo's'
Hard-boiled eggs are a delicacy for chimpanzees, said another
spokesperson, Pat Lovett.
Egg decorating is not the only talent Batu has demonstrated since she
was born at the zoo in April, 1986, Lovett said.
The copper-colored ape was photographed answering the zoo telephone
as part of an April Fool's Day joke, she said.
Dr. Lester Fisher, a veterinarian and the zoo's director, said Batu's
dexterity is all the more unusual because of her age.
"She's like a toddler in human terms," he said.
