Food airlifts needed to save Ethiopians

ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia (AP)
- Emergency airlifts of food are the
only hope for tens of thousands of
drought victims in northern Ethiopia
whose relief pipeline has been
disrupted by rebel attacks, the chief
of U.N. relief efforts said yesterday.
"We had hoped to avoid the
colossal expense of an airlift, but
most relief agencies agree that an
immediate airlift is needed," Michael
Priestly said in an interview. He is in
charge of the United Nation's relief

program in Ethiopia.
Priestly said he hoped airlifts
could begin in the next couple o f
weeks to Tigray province, where 75
percent of the crop has failed and 1
million people face starvation.
In neighboring Eritrea, there is a
total crop loss and another 1 million
people are at risk.
Attacks on truck convoys by
rebels in Eritrea have prompted the
government to close intermittenly
the main road to Tigray, choking off

supplies. Eritrea still is able to get
food from the province's Red Sea
port of Massawa.
Trucks, already scarce in the
north, were destroyed by the dozens
in the attacks, including 23 U.N.-
flagged trucks.
Normally this would be the height
of the harvest in Ethiopia. But fields
stand plowed and unplanted in some
areas because the rains failed in June.
In other areas, too little rain produced
stunted crops of wheat and sorghum.

Livestock now graze on food intended
for people.
Farmers and relief officials say the
drought and food situation is worse
than a 1984 drought which was
followed the next year by a famine
that killed 1 million Ethiopians.
Marxist Ethiopia is Africa's most
mountainous country. Getting food
to the mostly rural population is
tough under the best conditions, and
the convoy attacks make it tougher.

Compiled from Associated Press reports
officials work to cut deficit
WASHINGTON - White House and congressional negotiators
began a final push for a deficit-reduction agreement by Friday's dead-
line, yesterday, while groups started mobilizing against any cuts in
Social Security.
"We're about a week and $2 billion short, give or take," said Sen.
Bob Packwood of Oregon, senior Republican on the Senate Finance
The negotiators, seeking to find the spending cuts and tax increases
to satisfy the requirements of the Gramm-Rudman law, continued to
discuss delaying or limiting cost-of-living increases in benefits includ-
ing Social Security to close their gap.
Some lawmakers said privately those costs had to be controlled if
their plan to reduce deficits by $75 billion to $80 billion over the next
two years was to have credibility.
Summit hinges on agreement
WASHINGTON - The United States and the Soviet Union will be
faced with a "series of choices" including postponement of the sched-
uled summit meeting if a treaty to ban intermediate-range nuclear mis-
siles is not ready to be signed by the end of the month, a State Depart-
ment official said yesterday.
With Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev due to arrive here Dec. 7,
four treaty issues are not settled. These include safeguards against So-
viet cheating as well as a Soviet proposal to follow the accord with ne-
gotiations apparently designed to impose restrictions on U.S. jet planes
in Europe.
Chief U.S. negotiator Max Kampelman is discussing these sticking
points in Geneva with Soviet Deputy Foreign Minister Yuli
Vorontsov. If the remaining issues are resolved, it will take the U.S.
and Soviet negotiators about another week to prepare and agree on
treaty language.
Denver crash black boxes found
DENVER - Flight recorders pulled from the twisted remains of a
Continental Airlines DC-9 were flown to Washington yesterday to de-
termine what caused the jet to crash during a snowstorm killing 26
people and injuring 56.
The twin-engine plane was taken off at Stapleton International Air-
port Sunday afternoon when it flipped upside down.and broke into three
pieces as it slid down the runway three-quarters of a mile. At least 10
survivors remained hospitalized in critical condition yesterday.
It could be months before the cause of the crash is determined, au-
thorities said. It was the deadliest crash in the 58-year history of the
Air disaster hearings begin
ROMULUS - Wing flaps on a Northwest Airlines plane that
crashed, killing 156 people, were in the proper takeoff position, but the
jet took longer to get off the ground than expected, a witness testified
yesterday as hearings into the crash opened.
A federal investigator, however, said evidence compiled in the na-
tion's second-deadliest air disaster indicates the flaps were not extended
in preparation for takeoff. -
The conflicting testimony came on the first day of hearings by the
National Transportation Safety Board into the Aug. 16 crash of Flight
255. The only survivor was Cecilia Cichan, whose parents and brother
were among those killed.
The hearing is scheduled to continue through the week, but the
NTSB isn't expected to issue a report for months.

the matter," Baker said. He said the
committee will reconvene after all of
the members have reviewed the
University's document and materials
presented by the legislators.
Committee members do not
expect to resolve the conflict before
the December deadline established by
the state legislature.
"We're probably going to look at
extending that deadline," said
Thomas Baldini, an education adviser
to Gov. James Blanchard. Baldini,
appointed to represent the state's
Office of Management and Budget,
said it is still "much too early" to
predict whether the discussions will
affect this year's budget process.

Last year, state officials
denounced the University for denying
acceptance to qualified residents
because admitting out-of-state
students, who pay substantially
higher tuition rates, would boost
revenue. Sen. William Sederburg (R-
East Lansing) proposed an
amendment to the budget that would
cap out-of-state enrollment in all
state schools.
The limit was dropped, but the
University's budget allocation
increase was the lowest among state
schools.eThe committee -
established to prevent future
controversy - includes Baker,
Roach, Baldini, Sederburg, Sen.
Joseph Schwarz (R-Battle Creek),
Rep. Morris Hood (D-Detroit), and
Rep. Robert Emerson (D-Flint).

Council bans passing up'

(Continued from Page 1)
The University's Michigan
Student Assembly passed a
resolution last week supporting the
City Council's resolution. "MSA
condemns 'passing up' at any athletic
function," the MSA resolution said.
"MSA encourages additional
education on the ill effects and
illegalities of 'passing up' at all

major athletic events."
MSA Vice President Wendy
Sharp, speaking at last night's
council public hearing, denounced the
physical and psychological aspects of
"200 hands touching" a person who
is passed up. "Education is
important," Sharp said, in supporting
the ordinance, "but it is not the
answer in itself,"
The council's first resolution
received initial opposition from
council Republicans, who asserted
that co-writers DeVarti and
Councilmembers Jeff Epton (D-Third
Ward) and Ann Marie Coleman (D-
First Ward) did not contact
University officials before writing it.
But since then, councilmembers
have met with several University
officials, including Vice President for
Government Relations Richard
Kennedy, Assistant Athletic Director
Will Perry, Sharp, and MSA
President Ken Weine. The resolution
passed unanimously two weeks ago.
Associate Athletic Director
Donald Lund said, however, that
there have been no complaints to the
University's First Aid Department
about passing up all year, and that
the resolution was unnecessary.

Commercial spinoffs irk ROCK
DETROIT - Advertisers are cheapening the baby boom
generation's music by turning some classics into jingles and lifting
other songs in their entirety, a self-described defender of rock'n'roll said
Support for ROCK (Rockers Opposing Cheap Knockoffs) is
burgeoning among people in their 30's and 40's, Walt Sorg declared
during a telephone interview from his home in Williamston.
Commercial adaptations of popular music have been around for 40
years, Sorg said. But he said he was provoked into action only recently.
"I think it was 'Big Mac Tonight' for McDonald's. That was the
one that did it," Sorg said of the fast food chain's recent revamping of
the Bobby Darin hit, "Mac the Knife."
"Buddy Holly can't fight back when Buick turns 'Oh Boy!' into
'Oh Buick!' or Toyota changes his lyric from 'It's so easy to fall in
love' to 'It's so easy to own Tercel,"' the ROCK manifesto said.
"Marvin Gaye must turn in his grave every time animated f: tits

offspring," he said.
