South America and what is being
done to protect them.
"When rainforests are cut down to
raise cattle and plant farms... it
demonstrates a real fast diminishing
returns rate. Although the newly
cleared rainforest land produces at
first, a few years down the road it is
no longer producing and those who
cleared it must move on, leaving be-

preserving the rainforests. One of the

Dunn sues GOP for funds
LANSING - Republican U.S. Senate candidate Jim Dunn filed a law-
suit against his own party yesterday, saying a national GOP committee
crippled his campaign by breaking a $638,000 contribution promise.
Dunn's lawsuit names as defendants the Republican National Comr-
mittee and one of its arms, the National Republican Senatorial
Committee. It seeks an emergency injunction ordering the senatorial com-
mittee to come up with about $438,000 for his campaign.
Dunn said he received $200,000 from the committee, but was told he
wouldn't get the rest.
The former member of congress said he filed the lawsuit as a last resor
to get the money in time to pay for television ads before the Nov. 8 elecL
"You don't lightly choose to sue a national party. It was a tough decis-
ion to make," he said.

PLO leaders have said Palestinian protesters had access to weapons but
had been instructed not to use them in confrontations with Israelis.
Mich. land bill sent to Reagan
WASHINGTON - Legislation regarding the transfer of 544 small
parcels of federal land to the Michigan Department of Natural Resources
was sent to President Reagan yesterday to be signed into law.
The 537 islands, located in Michigan lakes and rivers, cover a total of
1,500 acres. They won't come under state control for about six months
so people who believe they own the land will have time to press claims.
Rep. Dale Kildee, a Flint Democrat and author of the bill, said than
placing land under control of the Michigan Department of Natural Re-
sources would allow for more intensive management than the federal
government could provide.
Sen. Donald Riegle, D-Mich., a sponsor of the bill, said it would al

WASHINGTON -Congress overwhelmingly passed legislation yes-

The Defense Department estimates that between $2 billion and $5 bil-

"We know we cannot afford excess bases that we don't need... ," said
Sen. Sam Nunn, D-Ga., chairman of the Armed Services Committee.
The bill sets up a complicated base-closing procedure that essentially
cuts through the thicket of laws enacted by Congress in the past decade to
thwart Pentagon efforts to shut down bases.
Nunn and Sen. John Warner, R-Va., the ranking Republican on the
Armed Services panel, said that no list of bases to be closed has yet been
No base closures would begin before 1990.
Lonely tree replaces light
extravaganza at Domino's
ANN ARBOR (AP) - The Christmas lights at Domino's Farms,
which could be seen from US-23, will not be on this year, thanks to the
tremendous traffic problems last year's display caused.
"Last year's light display created unanticipated traffic problems for out
employees and neighbors," said Richard Brunvand, spokesperson fot
Domino's. Last year's extravagant show drew an estimated 450,000
visitors between early December and January, causing back-ups onto US
Brunvand said the decision by owner Tom Monaghan was also due td
last year's whopping electric bill for the 270,000 lights in the display. It
cost the company "hundreds of thousands of dollars," said Domino's
