PHOENIX (AP) - The Arizona
Senate yesterday opened the first
impeachment trial of a governor in
six decades, while an attorney for
Gov. Evan Mecham implored it to
reject the charges against the first-
"This man hasn't dipped his
hands into public funds," attorney
Jerris Leonard said. "He hasn't ripped
of the treasury. He hasn't committed
high crimes in office, and I urge you
to dismiss these articles of
' Attorney Peter Eckstein, one of
the prosecutors, responded that even
if it turned out that Mecham didn't
violate state laws, his conduct would
be "grossly offensive to the people
of this state."
"The articles of impeachment...
cry out for convicting," Eckstein
said. He urged speedy resolution of a
raft of pending motions to allow
testimony to begin.
Mecham, who was not required to
be present when the senators
convened, stayed at the suburban
Glendale offices of his "government
in exile," and an aide said he wasn't
sure Mecham watched the
proceedings on television.

Interim Assistant to the President
Robin Jacoby said Womack had
"superior credentials. He w a s
everything we were looking for in a
financial officer. We're very con-
fident that he will run the financial
affairs quite well, and he will be a
good new voice around the executive
"This is not going to be much of
a change," Jacoby said. "The world
of major public research universities
was a world he knew quite well."
Brinkerhoff announced his
retirement last year, and former
President Harold Shapiro created a
search committee headed by George
Zuidema, vice provost for medical
affairs. Zuidema released his
recommendations to Fleming earlier
Before Womack arrived at North
Carolina in 1983, he was a financial
leader in Arkansas as well. From
1981 to 1983, he directed the
Arkansas Department of Finance
Administration, an organization res-
ponsible for the state's fiscal affairs.
Before that, he served as the
executive vice president of the

During the meeting, attended by Block, McKuen and
herself, Maria said, Block told her that the grievance
was cancelled and ordered her and McKuen to leave.
Maria, a second year law student at Thomas M.
Cooley Law School in Lansing, said she started to ar-
gue with Block, saying that under the provisions of the
contract the steward must be given ample time to
record the employee's grievance.
"I said, 'Listen, we're not slaves. The time of treat-
ing people like property is over,"' Maria said.
But Maria said she and McKuen decided to leave the
meeting after Block's tone became "intimidating."
"I had started to get nervous and shake," Maria said.
"(Block) had begun to yell and his voice was crack-
ing... it frightened me. I didn't know what he was go-
ing to do."
Block could not be reached for comment yesterday.
Maria was notified of her suspension last Saturday,
while she was at work at a University parking garage
near the medical center.
University Personnel Representative Keith Clark,
who will represent the University at Maria's disci-
plinary hearing this Thursday, said that he was not at
liberty to discuss on whose orders Maria was suspended
or the exact nature of the charges because the
investigation is ongoing.
But Tim Schrand, Maria's supervisor, said he be-
lieved Maria was suspended because of her dispute with
McKuen said he was also suspended for four days
without pay for insubordination following the

Strike opposing Noriega fails
PANAMA CITY - A general strike called by opponents of Panama's
military regime faltered yesterday, with transportation and most commerce
But the strike, called to press for the resignation of the commander of
Defense Forces Gen. Manuel Antonio Noriega, who was charged in the
United States for his involvement in the smuggling of Colombia cocaine,
appeared somewhat more effective in industry.
Intimidation, censorship and an apparent lack of faith in the
effectiveness of mass action conspired against the strike's success.
"There's fear," said a middle-aged bank employee as he stepped from a
bus early Monday. "We lack unity to confront these people, who have all
"The people don't have means to resist," said a woman who was
walking with him.
Travelers lack alternative to
Northwest at Metro Airport
DETROIT - Travelers upset with Northwest Airlines because of
uncertainty over its labor situation can't afford to stay mad - the airline
is too big a player at Metro Airport to ignore, travel agents said
A threatened strike by 6,700 Northwest flight attendants - 2,500 of
whom are based in Detroit - remained on hold as bargainers for the
airline and the Teamsters Union hassled over what reportedly was the final
obstacle to a contract agreement. The 12:01 a.m. Saturday strike deadline
was extended indefinitely.
Since its merger with Republic Airlines, Northwest has carried about
half of the air passengers out of Detroit.
Northwest has guaranteed refunds on all tickets if there is a strike, but
those who purchased discounted tickets with refunds or cancellation
penalties are left hanging for now.
S. African police arrest Tutu
CAPE TOWN, South Africa - Anglican Archbishop Desmond Tutu
and other religious leaders from all races were arrested yesterday while
kneeling near Parliament with a petition against government bans on
Members of a procession Tutu and his colleagues had led recited the
Lord's Prayer as police sprayed them with jets of water and loaded them
All the detainees were freed in a few hourssand the clergy said they
would continue protest regardless of the consequences. Their petition
referred to an order last Wednesday prohibiting political activity by 18
major anti-apartheid organizations.
Shultz fails to gain support for
Middle East peace settlement
JERUSALEM - Secretary of State George Shultz neared the end of a
peace mission yesterday with inconclusive responses from Israel and the
Arabs on his plan.for negotiations this year on a Middle East settlement.
Final word from Jordan, the key Arab country, awaited a meeting today
with King Hussein in London but the king clearly was no longer pressing
the Palestine Liberation Organization to form a joint delegation.
Israel was divided between Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir's
conservative Likud bloc, which opposes the Shultz idea trading land for
peace, and the center-right Labor Party of Foreign Minister Shimon
Peres, which favors it.
U. S. shoppers eat tomatoes
while Soviets prefer cabbage
WASHINGTON (AP) - The CIA and the Agriculture Department
have teamed up to report that the cabbage is king in the Soviet Union,
while Americans bow to the tomato.
The study of food supplies in the United States and the Soviet Union
says that radish and carrot tops are common fare among Soviet consumers
but are rarely found on American grocery lists. But then, the United
States has the sweet potato while the Soviet Union doesn't.
On the other hand, the overall nutrient levels in the two nations are
not too far apart. On the average, the Soviet Union supplies about 3,200
calories per day to each citizen, compared with 3,500 for the average Am-
Americans have more fat and cholesterol in their food supply, while
Soviet people get more carbohydrates; both get equal amounts of protein.
The study was conducted jointly by the CIA and the Agriculture De-
partment's Human Nutrition Information Service.
