road open to war
ALONG THE SALANG HIGH-
WAY, Afghanistan (AP) - Afghan
troops and Moslem guerrillas fought
for control of this highway yesterday
as the Soviet army moved out what
may have been the last convoy to
leave Afghanistan by truck.
A convoy of Soviet soldiers driv-
ing -armored personnel carriers and
trucks loaded with missile launchers
and other equipment cruised through
a Soviet bunker checkpoint as heli-
copter gunships hovered nearby, of-
Two ground-attack jets streaked
overhead and then disappeared behind
the snow-covere.d mountains just
beyond the hills surrounding the
capital of Kabul.
In Pakistan, Western diplomats
speaking on condition of anonymity
said that in the past week an average
of 18 Soviet transport planes a day
had landed and taken off from Kabul
- more than twice the number re-
ported the previous week.
TheSoviets sent about 115,000
troops into Afghanistan in December
1979 to prop up a Marxist govern-
ment that seized power in a coup the

Soviet diplomats in Kabul say
the remaining 15,000 to 20,000
troops could be gone by the end of
the week, about 10 days before the
partments would result in layoffs of
between 600 and 800 employees. But
2,200 employees would lose their
jobs if the Free Press shut down.
University Communications Pro-
fessor James Buckley explained that
consolidating the two newspapers
will give them greater marketing
power and monopoly status while
"screwing all the small guys" who
won't be able to compete.
Buckley opposes a JOA in general
because, "it sets a bad precedent for
newspapers to go hand-in-hand with
the government. If newspapers want
true independent autonomy they can-
not ask federal government to treat
them differently, waive the antitrust
laws, and ask special favors from
"If newspapers receive special fa-
vors from the government, what's to
say the government won't want fa-
vors from the newspapers," Buckley
Questions also exist about what
the merge will mean to Detroit busi-
nesses and their advertising costs.

Buckley agreed that the daily cost
of advertising would go up, but the
cost per thousand persons would go
down because of the increased
"Advertisers will achieve a broader
circulation reaching more people
through one paper; however, it will
be harder for them to target a specific
market," he explained.
The courts have approved JOAs
often in the past in such cities as
Miami, Columbus, Anchorage, San
Fransisco and St. Louis. When the
JOA was implemented in Cincinnati
"prices tripled in advertising rates,"
But in some cases even after the
JOA was implemented, Buckley said,

Democrats elect party chair
DETROIT - Tom Lewand was elected chair of the Michigan Demo-
cratic Party yesterday, but only after some Black Democrats called his se-
lection one of "plantation politics" because they weren't consulted.
The faction nominated Arthur Featherstone of Detroit to run against
Lewand, who was tabbed by longtime friend Gov. James Blanchard, to
lead the party.
Featherstone said he didn't dispute Blanchard's power to name the new
party chair, but thought the Black faction should have been consulted
His concern, said Featherstone, was that Black support was being
taken for granted and that Blacks were being ignored on crucial party deci-
Featherstone withdrew his name from the nomination,leaving Lewand
to be elected unanimously.
Lewand ran for a seat on the University's Board of Regents last fall and
Officials confirm that
Cuba had nuclear missiles',
MOSCOW - A Soviet official confirmed for the first time that 20
nuclear warheads were in Cuba during the 1962 missile crisis, and a
Cuban official revealed that 270,000 Soviet and Cuban troops were pre-
pared for war with the United States during the same time.
The revelations came during a review of the Cuban missile crisis at a
conference in southwest Moscow over the weekend.
The meeting was the first between American, Soviet and Cuban offi-
cials to discuss the Soviet deployment of nuclear missiles in Cuba and
the U.S. response: a blockade of the island and a demand for the rockets'
American officials have said they were never sure whether any Soviet
nuclear warheads had reached Cuba, but they had assumed they had.
The information was provided by Jorge Risquet, member of Cuba's
ruling Politburo and Deputy Soviet Foreign Minister Viktor Komplek-
Israel flies flag to spur talks
JERUSALEM - Israel agreed yesterday to let Egypt raise its flag over
the disputed Taba border area in a symbolic concession reflecting Israel's
plans to return the 250-acre beach strip to Egyptian rule.
Israel acceded to Egypt's request to fly its flag in an attempt to get
talks moving on a few last obstacles before the land along the Red Sea is
handed back, said Foreign Ministry spokesperson Alon Liel.
The talks over Taba ran into trouble last week when Egyptian officials'
said they would consider the land to be under Egypt's sovereignty as of
yesterday, 60 days after an international arbitration panel sided with
The declaration alarmed Israeli officials, who first want to settle issues
such as access for Israeli tourists and compensation for Israeli owners of
two vacation resorts.
The beach strip, captured by Israel in the 1967 Middle East war, has
been a subject of dispute between the countries since 1982.
Study says Superfund is too
reliant on outside contractors
WASHINGTON - The lagging "Superfund" program for the cleanup
of toxic wastes is too reliant upon outside contractors, many of whom are
making hefty profits, while government supervisors remain underpaid.
understaffed and underqualified, said a congressional study released yester-
Since the program started eight years ago, contractors have received $4
billion, or 80 to 90 percent of the Superfund money each year, said the
report by the Office of Technology Assessment.
The congressional agency noted that funds for the staff of the Envi-
ronmental Protection Agency, which oversees the program, remained vir-
tually flat while the outside spending escalated.
Rooster picks TV's best
IRVINGTON, Ky. - Dick Frymire's renowned rooster Ted disgraced
himself on national television when he predicted Cincinnati to win the
Super Bowl. But he's not quitting and should have his picks for the top
10 TV shows soon.
Frymire will put the names of about 50 television shows in front of
Ted and place a kernel of corn in front of each sign. The first grain of corn
Ted eats will be his choice of the No. 1 show, with picks up to 10.
This pick may work better than his Superbowl prediction, which aired
on national television, on CBS' "Sunday Morning."
It all started in 1984 when Frymire put his pet into a pen shaded with
two old campaign posters, one of Walter Mondale, and one of Ronald
Reagan. He set out some numbers and corn kernels, and asked Ted how
many states Mondale would carry in the election.
Ted ate the kernel in front of the number "1."
Since then, Ted has predicted winners of basketball games, the Ken-
tucky Derby and three Superbowl games.
