"Now it's time for the city leaders
to put their bucks where their

In addition to increased recycling,
task force members want a
composting program. Composting
separates yard waste, such as leaves
and grass, to decay in a special facil-
ity until it decomposes into fertilizer
Midland, Michigan has a
successful composting program in
place which has reduced the city's
waste by 10 percent. The task force
hopes Ann Arbor will reach that
percentage by 1995.
Another possibility for reducing
local waste is placing a limit on the
amount of garbage each house may
generate. One way to enforce the
limit would be a sticker system;
only garbage bags with city-issued
stickers would be picked up for dis-
posal. Once the household runs out
of stickers more must be purchased
from the city.
Seattle, Washington - a city
renowned for its handling of solid
waste disposal - has put into place
a limitation on household garbage.
Each house is allowed one garbage
can for weekly pickup, with each
additional can costing $9 a month.
The Seattle program has resulted
in increased awareness in waste out-
put, Seattle city officials said. Al-
though recycling isn't mandatory,
the stiff fine for extra garbage has
helped the city's recycling participa-
tion rate climb to 70 percent.

Governor to announce
program for home buyers
LANSING - First-time home buyers would get a guaranteed down
payment no matter what happens to house prices by investing in a new
state program designed to give everyone a crack at "the American dream,"
Governor James Blanchard said yesterday.
Blanchard said the goal of the Home Ownership Savings Trust
program, which he'll announce tonight in his State of the State address,
is to help young families save the five or ten percent down payment they
need to buy a house.
"Anything government can do to help the next generation realize their
dreams is extremely.important," Blanchard said. "I think this program
will not only work, but sweep the country."
Details of the program are still being worked out, but Blanchard said
he hopes it will begin operation this year. Treasury officials said they
believe the program can be implemented without approval from the
Soviets leave Afghanistan
KABUL, Afghanistan - The last military convoys rolled north to the
border Monday, more than a week before the deadline for the Red Army to
leave, Soviet officials said.
Hundreds of Soviet soldiers guarded the airport, where military trans-
ports brought in food and fuel to ease shortages caused by a blockade of
Kabul by Moslem guerrillas who surround it.
The Communist Party newspaper Pravda said "the last Soviet soldier
left Kabul," on Sunday. But Soviet officials in the Afghan capital said
about 1,000 Red Army troopers would remain at the airport until the end
of next week.
Soviet Foreign Minister Eduard Shevardnadze, met with officials in
neighboring Pakistan, but did not find a way to end the 11-year civil war
peacefully. He said Monday the Soviets would continue supporting the
Marxist government in Kabul, but would not send troops back into the
Bush presents S&L plan
WASHINGTON - President Bush yesterday called on banks and thrift
institutions to pay higher deposit insurance premiums as part of a $100
billion solution to the savings and loan crisis, but recommended no direct
fee on individual depositors.
"We intend to restore our entire insured deposit system to health," the
president told reporters in outlining a series of regulatory changes and
vowing to prosecute any wrong doings at S&Ls that have failed thus far.
"In all the time since creation of the deposit insurance, savers have not
lost one dollar of insured deposits and I am determined that they never
will," Bush said.
An estimated $100 billion is need to rescue the ailing industry.
Bush said the interest on the bonds would be financed by higher insur-
ance premiums. Separately, Treasury Secretary Nicholas Brady outlined a
plan for members of Congress that called for higher premiums paid into
the deposit insurance fund.
Club bans women athletes
DETROIT - Women can join the posh and formerly all-male
Detroit Athletic Club, but they can't dine in its Grill Room, swim in its
pool during most-popular hours or use its bowling alley.
Under public and private pressure, the 3,600 member club began
accepting women members in 1986, and now 10 women grace its roster.
Woman can't use the pool before 9 a.m., at noon or between 5 and 7
p.m. The bowling alley is closed to them because there aren't doors on an
adjacent men's locker room. The Grill Room remains for men only.
"The restrictive bylaws still apply," Executive director M.A. Bossler
said. "It's a private club and they join. knowing what the club is about,"
"It's not the easiest place for a woman," club member Denise Astro
said, but adde4 that it didn't bother her because "I know it will change."
Tapes speak words of love
GRAND RAPIDS - A developer of subliminal tapes has produced
what he believes is the most romantic Valentine's Day gift of all fidelity.
"Faithfully Yours" is a 60-minute cassette tape of easy-listening music
with inaudible messages of fidelity that only the subconscious mind can
hear, said Dr. Paul Tuthill, founder and president of.Mind Communica-
tions, Inc., based in Grand Rapids.
Such phrases as "I am faithful to my mate", "My mate fulfills all my
needs" and "Only my mate excites me," are a few of the 24 spoken mes-
sages that are repeated 2,500 to 3,000 times and synchronized to music.
"The tape really focuses attention back on your mate, on the basic need
to be with one person," Tuthill said Monday.
"I think they're hogwash," Howard Shevrin psychology professor at
the University's Medical Center said.

victims treated in US
BOSTON-(AP) Victims of the
recent Armenian earthquake, some so
severely injured that their limbs,
skulls and bones are crushed, are be-
ginning to arrive in the United
States this week for medical treat-
For example, 15 year old Lena
has come to the United States for
operations that may restore her para-
lyzed left hand. Doctors say she was
trapped under the rubble for three
days with her mother. Unaware that
her mother had died , the teen-ager
clutched her so tightly that her hand
was frozen into a claw shape.
"The (Soviet) doctors told us very
sad stories," Nishan Goudsouzian,
chief of pediatric anesthesiology at
Massachusetts General Hospital said
at a news conference. "They said that
they didn't get their first smile from
a kid for three weeks. The kids
couldn't sleep through the night.
They said that one would start crying
and all the others would start."
Dr John Remensnyder, a plastic
surgeon from Massachusetts Gen-
eral Hospital said "The quality of
care given to victims in the Soviet
Union was excellent"
