charged rent, he said.
Besides not having space avail-
able for new research projects, other
problems result from the lack of
space. Without space, the Medical
School is unable to garner funds for
new projects, and must use laborato-
ries that are often outmoded for to-
day's research.
Every researcher submitting a
, grant proposal must inform the
foundation of where he or she intends
to research. If research space cannot
be found, then the Chair of the De-
partment must deny the proposal,
Goldstein explained.
"If we get a grant we are morally
committed to providing research
space (for that project)," he said.
In addition, finding funds to ren-
ovate old laboratories is difficult.
"The allocation of state legislature
[funds] to the University hasn't kept
pace with the needs of the Univer-
sity," Goldstein said. Private contri-
butions are hard to find because "not

the savings and loan industry.
However, Bush, who during the
campaign promised not to raise
taxes, said he would solve both
,,problems "within the confines, the
* parameters of the commitment I
made to the American people."
In introducing Watkins Bush said,
"I'm committed to solving the
.problems that exist within our
atomic energy-defense complex."
He refused to embrace the rec-
ommendations of a report sent to
'resident Reagan calling for spend-
ing $81 billion to modernize the
nuclear weapons complex over the
next two decades and the closing of
our major facilities. Bush said he

many people like to give money for
old space," Goldstein said. It is easier
to get funds for new buildings, he
said, because "there's nothing like
having your name on a building or a
room if it's nice and new."
Some of the outdated laborato-
ries could even become dangerous if
not renovated, Goldstein said.
Some problems in old laborato-
ries include faulty or inefficient elec-
trical systems, poor ventilation and
bad plumbing, said Medical School
Facilities Director Horace Bomar.
One dangerous problem is the
deterioration of fume hoods designed
to separate the researcher from harm-.
ful airborne materials by drawing the
air via a fan out of the building.
When the fume hoods gets old, the
quantity of air pulled through the
hood decreases.
One fume hood costs between
$5,000-6,000, and its installation
costs anywhere from $25,000-
70,000, Bomar said. However, Gold-
stein said that renovation is still
cheaper than new construction.

Bush said development of nuclear
power for domestic as well as mili-
tary needs was "not at all
incompatible" with safety and, envi-
ronmental concerns.
Acknowledging that Bennett has
been closely identified with the Re-
publican Party's conservative wing,
Bush said that his new "drug czar"
would have to work with Democrats
and Republicans alike.
Replying to a question, Bush said
he was "not entirely" comfortable
with the cost of his inauguration,
which could reach $25 million.
However, Bush said, "I have no
apologies for the way we are doing it
at all," because the country deserves
a celebration like the inauguration
every four years.

DETROIT (AP) - The leaders of
the nation's largest teacher unions
yesterday offered qualified support for
William Bennett as drug czar in the
Bush administration but took a jab
at their former adversary as education
"The drug issue will require the
collective support of the commu-
nity. We commend the Bush admin-
istration for recognizing the drug
problem as a national problem,"
Mary Hatwood Futrell, president of
the 1.9 million member National
Education Association said in a news
"But we do have to recall during
Bennett's tenure that he called for
reductions in drug education in
schools and drug testing among all
school employees," she said.


Bennett, named to the cabinet
position by Bush yesterday, often
was criticized by NEA and the
American Federation of Teachers
during his years as Education Secre-
tary in the Reagan administration.
Hatwood and Shanker said a new
spirit of cooperation marks relations
between the education community
and the administration of President-
elect Bush.
"The reappointment of Laura
Cavazos as secretary of education
will keep education high on the
agenda," Futrell said. "Cooperation
with Reagan and Bennett wasn't

tion post last year, was replaced by
Futrell said she and Shanker at-
tended a White House workshop on
education Tuesday that included
Reagan, Bush, and Cavazos. They
applauded a plan detailed at the
workshop to create open schools in
which students are given the option
of deciding which schools to attend.
"Reagan and Bush have moved
away from an emphasis on private
and parochial schools to public
schools," said Shanker, head of the
665,000-member union.
Both unions opposed Reagan
proposals to offer tax credits and
vouchers to parents of children at-

Futrell said the open-school con-
cept have potential if tailored for in-

Earthquake survivors found
below wreckage after 35 days
Workers extricated six men from the rubble of a nine-story apartment
building in Leninakan 35 days after the Armenian earthquake buried them
in a small, dark cellar stocked with canned goods, Tass reported yesterday.
The men were found Wednesday, weeks after authorities gave up
searching for survivors of the Dec. 7 quake that killed 25,000 people in
northwestern Armenia. One of the six suffered a broken arm and the
others had only minor injuries, Tass said.
"On the day of the earthquake, I asked five neighbors to help me carry
two heavy wooden kegs to the basement," survivor Aikaz Akopyan was
quoted as telling Tass. "Just then, we suddenly heard a terrible roar. The
earth trembled, and walls began to collapse. I thought a war had started."
The men were brought to Yerevan hospitals yesterday where they
remained, according to hospital personnel and Tass.
Racial-medical biases shown
CHICAGO - Blacks have less access to medical care than whites, are
included in fewer trials of new drugs and - in at least one state - tend to
get less aggressive treatment for heart disease, new research indicates.
One in 11 Blacks reported not seeing a doctor for economic reasons,
compared with one in 20 whites, according to a, 1986 nationwide
telephone survey of 10,130 representative U.S. residents, researchers said.
Blacks were less likely to have health insurance, and those who did not
were considerably less likely to be covered by a private insurance carrier
and more likely to live in a state with less generous Medicaid benefits.
The report, which appears in today's Journal of the American Medical
Association, was performed by Drs. Mark Wenneker and Arnold Epstein

State to raise employees' pay
LANSING, Mich. -State workers will receive a pay increase of 3.5
percent next year, under a proposal adopted yesterday by the Michigan
Civil Service Commission.
The pay raises, approved on a 3-0 vote, will cost the state treasury
$67.38 million and will go to 43,710 union employees and 16,800 non-
union employees.
"We'll live with it," said Phillip Thompson, spokesperson for a
coalition of five unions that had sought pay increases of six percent.
Increases in other Great Lake States are averaging 4.9 percent,
Thompson said.
But states that have given state workers larger pay increases are now
running deficits, said George G. Matish, director of the Office of State
The Commission's action will be included in the budget sent law-
makers this session. Lawmakers have 60 days after they receive the bud-
get to reject the increases or uniformly reduce them.
Investigators check engines
of crashed 737 jet for defects
. LONDON - Investigators got a first look at the engines of a crashed
Boeing 737 yesterday and British airlines flying similar craft said they
found no evidence of faults in the engine warning systems.
The engines from the British Midland Boeing 737-400 that crashed
Sunday were removed from an embarkment along a freeway near the town
of Kegworth and taken to nearby East Midlands airport.
The plane, bound for Belfast, Northern Ireland, crashed while trying an
emergency landing at the airport, killing 44 people and injuring 82.
Investigators are trying to determine why the plane's apparently
working right engine was turned off during the flight when later'
examination showed it was the left engine that caught fire. Speculations
have focused on a faulty engine warning system and crew error.
Retton gets boot; files suit
WASHINGTON - Former teen-age Olympic star Mary Lou Retton
is taking two bowling industry groups to court in a contract dispute re-
lated to the fact that she's not a kid anymore.
The gymnast and her family are suing the two trade groups in U.S.
District Court for $250,000, alleging the organizations unfairly ended a
four-year promotional agreement that began in 1985.
Last June, the trade groups notified Retton and her family that the

agreement was being' halted, the suit says, "on the grounds that Mary Lou
Retton, due to changes in her physical image caused by her maturing as a
woman was no longer a suitable spokesperson." The court papers did not
The suit, filed Monday, alleges breach of the agreement.
Retton, of Fairmont, W. Va., as a 16-year-old captured the all-around
gold metal in women's gymnastics at the 1984 Summer Olympic Games.
