UAW nears strike deadline
DEARBORN - Ford Motor Co. workers waited with picket signs
ready yesterday as the automaker and the United Auto Workers union
neared an 11:59 p.m. expiration to their labor contract.
Negotiators talked all night and into the day as they sought an agree-
ment that would keep 104,000 union members from striking the nation's
second largest auto manufacturer.
As the deadline approached, Ford and the UAW remained at odds over
several critical issues, including the union's demand for greater job secur-
ity and wage increases.
UAW President Owen Bieber told reporters Sunday evening that "job
security has indeed been the main area that we've been wrestling with, and
our differences there are still very serious."

Iran, implement sanctions
BAGHDAD, Iraq - Iraqi Foreign Minister Tariq Aziz urged U.N.
Secretary-General Javier Perez de Cuellar yesterday to take "punitive
measures" against Iran for failing to respond to a Security Council res-
olution calling for a cease-fire in the 7-year-old Persian Gulf war.
Baghdad radio said Aziz demanded that the Security Council imple-
ment its July 20 resolution which calls for sanctions, including an arms
embargo, on whichever country fails to comply with the provisions.
The resolution calls for an immediate, unconditional cease-fire, with-
drawal of troops to internationally recognized borders, and an exchange of
The day before, Iraninan President Ali Khamenei had told Perez de
Cuellar in Tehran that the United Nations had to brand Iraq as the agressor
and punish it before there could be a settlement of the war.
Ferris State faculty strikes
Professors struck Ferris State College but some students attended
classes yesterday, while the Michigan college sought a court order to send
striking faculty members back to work, officials said.
The 476-member Ferris Faculty Association voted to strike after
negotiations broke off Sunday night, said union president Tom Turcotte.
College spokesperson Tricia Coyle said students were encouraged to
attend class, some new and part-time faculty members were at work, and
some classes were meeting.
College attorneys filed a motion yesterday in Mecosta County Circuit
Court for a temporary injunction to send the striking faculty members
back to work, she said.
Teachers also went on strike yesterday in the 1,568-student Iron river
public schools in the Upper Peninsula, and walkouts continued in six
other districts, including Detroit, where a strike went into its third week

NEW YORK (AP) - Ivan Lendl
won his third straight U.S. Open
title yesterday, rallying after losing
his first set of the tournament to
beat Mats Wilander in a lengthy
baseline battle.
Lendl downed the Swede 6-7 (7-
9), 6-0, 7-6 (7-4), 6-4 in a 4-hour,
47 minute match at the National
Tennis Center.
The United States Tennis
Association does not keep time
records on Open matches, so it was


unable to say whether the
Lendl-Wilander match was the
longest final in Open history.
Lendl, who joined John McEnroe
as the only man to win three
consecutive Open singles titles,
closed out the match . with a
backhand service return down the
line. Both players had held serve in
the final set until the 10th game.
The match, postponed Sunday
because of rain, started under sunny
skies at 2:11 p.m. EDT. When it
ended at 6:58 p.m., the sun had set
and the stadium lights were on.
It was Lendl's second victory over
Wilander this year in a Grand Slam
final, the first comingaat theFrench
Wilander, who was more
emotional than usual during the
match, won the first-set tiebreaker
after saving one set point with a
forehand passing shot.
The set, which lasted one-and-
one-half, ended when Lendl hit a
forehand that landed inches wide of
the sideline. Lendl- argued briefly
with chair umpire Richard Kaufman,
who declined to overrule the line
official's call.
That broke Lendl's 25-set
winning streak at the Open. He
hadn't lost a set at the Open since
losing the third set in his quarterfinal

victory over Henri Leconte last year.
The last player to win the U.S.
men's singles title without losing a
set was Neale Fraser in 1960, eight
years before the tournament was
opened to professionals.
Wilander broke Lendl in the fifth
game of the first set when he ran
down a Lendl drop shot and hit a
forehand cross-court winner. But
Lendl broke back in the eighth game
to even the set at 4-4 and both
players held serve to force the
Trailing for the first time in the
tournament, Lendl began to attack
more aththe net and stormed back to
even the match in 28 minutes.
Wilander won only five points in the
entire set, including one off Lendl's
In the third set, both players
reverted to long baseline rallies and
neith could hold his serve in the first
four games. Lendl broke again in the
seventh game to take a 4-3 lead, but
Wilander broke back in the next
game after Lendl saved four break
After the players held serve to 6-
6, Lendl won the first four points of

gap to 6-4, but Lendl ended the 1:40

'Ask Ollie,' Detroit rocker says
DETROIT (AP) - Singer Mitch Ryder says he respects Lt. Colonel
Oliver North despite his new song, "Good Golly, Ask Ollie."
"It's definitely not a novelty record," said the veteran Detroit rock-n-
roll musician.
Ryder said the song was inspired by the recent Iran-Contra hearings,
and reworks his 1966 hit tune, "Good Golly, Miss Molly."
"I agreed to do it only after the lyrics were read to me, and it semed
sufficiently pointed enough to put Oliver North in his place. I'd prefer to
call it satirical, a collector's item," Ryder said.
"I have the greatest respect for North as a soldier, and we have a
disclaimer on the record apologizing to the Marine Corps if we offended
anyone," he said. "We tried to do a number of things to save m y
Ryder said the opportunity to work with Paul Shaffer and the band
from NBC's Late Night With David Letterman show also inspired him to
participate. He said the 12-inch single from SOS Records, written by
advertising agency copywriter Marc Block, is expected in stores Oct. 1.
