Dukakis addresses the AFL-CIO IN BRIEF
By ANNA BORGMAN
Special to the Daily
LANSING - Massachusetts Gov. Michael
Dukakis courted AFL-CIO members at a
manufacturing plant in Lansing on Saturday,
hoping to garner support for the upcoming
In so doing, he joined two other presidential
hopefuls campaigning in the state over the
Dukakis said he hoped to win in Michigan
with the backing of a strong coalition of
Democrats and a few stray Republicans.
"Michigan is going to be a very important state,
as it always is," Dukakis said.
DETROIT MAYOR Coleman Young said
over the weekend that he will vote for Dukakis
himself, but has refused to endorse the candidate
I Jeannie Kedas, a spokesperson for the state's
bukakis campaign, said she is pleased with
Young's support and predicted that it would help
Dukakis in the March 26 caucus.
In a question and answer session at the
Lansing plant Saturday, Dukakis said he is
fighting an "uphill battle" in Tuesday's Illinois
primary against Rev. Jesse Jackson and Senator
Paul Simon of Illinois. Both opponents are
natives of the state, but Dukakis said he is
working hard to get his share of delegates there.
He also cited New York and Pennsylvania as
important upcoming primaries.
ABOUT 50 workers at the Lansing plant,
who were taken off the job and paid time-and-a-
half for the honor, lined up to shake hands with
Bob Meighen, a machinist at the plant for
eleven years, said of Dukakis, "he's been my
pick of the Democratic party." He said he wanted
to ask Dukakis' views on several issues.,
Later, Meighen asked Dukakis about gun
control, but he didn't have a chance to ask about
abortion, imports, and national health care, as he
had hoped. Meighen said he was pleased with the
governor's response that he wants legislation
affecting criminals but not hunters.
TEN-YEAR-OLD bystander Mark
Konwinski held a sign saying "Dukakis for
President," which the presidential candidate
autographed. Konwinski's mother Alita said the
pint-sized politico follows all of the presidential
candidates. "It was all his idea to come," she said.
When asked why he supports Dukakis,
Konwinski said, "he's from Massachusetts, and I
had to do a book report on (the state)... Dukakis
is everything you'd ever want in a President."
Konwinski also said he agrees with Dukakis'
views on taxes and toxic waste.
Jesse Jackson was also in Lansing on
Saturday, speaking at Michigan State
University's commencement ceremonies, where
he received an honorary degree. His appearance
had caused some concern of turning the event
into a political soapbox.
DURING his speech, Jackson never
specifically mentioned his candidacy, but made
references to such political topics as the
effectiveness of Attorney General Edwin Meese.
Rep. Richard Gephardt of Missouri, appearing
at a fundraiser for Wayne County Executive Ed
McNamara on Saturday, acknowledged that he is
the underdog of the race.

By sending representatives out to

broaden its understanding of student
activities and concerns, Tilles said.
In addition, MSA would have
"suggestion forms" available in the
dorms and libraries whereby students
could indicate their individual ideas
and problems, she had said.
"Ideas may not always reach dorm
government, school government,
and, most importantly, they often
don't reach MSA," Tilles had said.
Common Sense also proposed to
establish an office of racism and dis-
acts of harassment and discrimina-
This office would be similar to
both the University's Sexual Assault
Prevention and Awareness Center
and the office outlined in MSA's
"alternative to the code" proposed
last month. But it will also have a

lawyer to offer legal advice and
counseling. They hope to lobby the
administration to fund the office.

Afghan talks face deadline
GENEVA - Talks aiming at ending the Afghan war are one day away
from a Soviet deadline for their completion, but a crucial dispute on who
will run the country still stands in the way of a signed settlement.
Soviet leader Mikhail S. Gorbachev said last month the Soviets would
begin withdrawing troops from Afghanistan by mid-May if an agreement
is reached by March 15. But sources close to the U.N.-sponsored say they
don't view the deadline as rigid.
Delegations from the Soviet-backed government in Kabul and from
Pakistan, which is representing the Afghan resistance, both say they are
ready to extend the negotiations.
UN Undersecretary General Diego Cordovez, the talks' mediator, said
he asked both sides to seek "strengthened instructions" during the weekend
to prepare for today's session.
Union requests inf ormation
on dealings in JOA case
DETROIT - A union has filed a Freedom of Information request
seeking to find out if either of Detroit's two daily newspapers have tried
to influence a Justice Department decision on a proposal to partially
merge the two papers.
The Detroit News reported in Sunday editions that the FOI request
from the Newspaper Guild of Detroit and was mailed Saturday to the
The guild, local 22 of the Newspaper Guild, is the only union
opposing the proposed Joint Operating Agreement between the News and

Israel cuts off West bank fuel
JERUSALEM - Israel choked off gasoline supplies to the occupied
West Bank yesterday after Palestinian protesters torched two fuel trucks
and pelted others with stones.
A senior official in the West Bank military government stressed that
fuel would be delivered to stations that serve hospital ambulances and
Police said more than half of the 850 Arab officers in the occupied
territories had resigned in a PLO-led campaign.
The army confirmed an Arab slied after being shot in the eye in a clash
last week but denied Arab reports that a 5-year-old boy died from burns
caused by a tear gas grenade.
Jackson assails Bush's record
CHICAGO - With signs pointing to another Republican primary
victory by George Bush in Illinois, the vice president came under fire
yesterday from Democrat Jesse Jackson, who said Bush would enter the
race "with a lot of baggage."
"George Bush was supposed to be over the commission on the drug
situation, yet drugs are coming into this country at a rate that threatens
our national security," JackSon said yesterday on the NBC show "Meet
As the candidates entered the last days of campaigning in Illinois, a
new Chicago Tribune poll showed favorite sons Paul Simon and Jackson
leading in the Democratic race with Gov. Michael Dukakis of
Massachusetts challenging them, while Bush had a 34 point lead over
GOP rival Robert Dole.

'Dead' inmate wants parole
AUBURN, N.Y. - An inmate convicted of murdering two police
officers claims he has satisfied his sentence of 20 years to life in prison
because he "died" briefly during open-heart surgery.
The heart and respiratory functions of Jerry Rosenberg, an inmate at
the Auburn Correctional Facility, stopped for about 30 seconds during
surgery in Syracuse's University Hospital on Dec. 5, 1986, said attorney
Rosenberg, a self-styled jail house lawyer, was denied parole last
Wednesday for the fifth time since he became eligible for it in 1981.
Rosenberg claims the parole board has no jurisdiction over him because
he has "died," said Baumgarten, a spokesperson for Rosenberg.
Baumgarten said he sent a letter to Gov. Mario Cuomo requesting a
pardon, and if it is denied, Rosenberg will pursue the case in federal court.
