Audit uncovers $312M in
overspending by state DSS
LANSING, Mich. - The Michigan Department of Social Services
spent $312 million more than the Legislature appropriated forit in a
three-year period, according to an audit released yesterday.
The audit, by Auditor General Thomas McTavish, said both the
Michigan Constitution and laws forbid a department to spend more than
The department's overspending amounted to $95.8 million in 1985-86,
$137.1 million in 1986-87, and $89.5 million in 1987-88 and wasn't cor-
rected by requesting a supplemental appropriation or cutting spending, the
More than $79.9 million was owed to the department by welfare recip-
ients who received more benefits than they were entitled to under the Aid
to Families with Dependent Children, general assistance, food stamps or
refugee assistance programs, the audit said.

Bill would ban nuclear waste
LANSING, Mich. - A Michigan senator, citing medical concerns
about the safety of a planned nuclear waste dump, said yesterday he's con-
sidering legislation banning the production of such waste.
Sen. John Cherry (D-Clio), who sponsored the law regulating Michi-
gan's handling of low-level radioactive waste, said the opposition of the
Genesee County Medical Society represented a change of position by gen-
erators of such waste.
He said his staff will start drafting legislation to prohibit the genera-
tion of low-level radioactive waste in Michigan by prohibiting the pos-
session or use of radioactive materials unless they won't produce radioac-
Such a move would affect producers of low-level waste such as hospi-
tals, universities, industry and electricity power generators. They have
supported construction of a disposal facility to handle their waste.
Security found lacking at
nuclear weapon plants
WASHINGTON D.C. - Lax protection of high-grade plutonium and
other nuclear arms material is emerging as one of the most serious,
though least well-known, flaws in the Energy Department's troubled
Compared to highly publicized mechanical breakdowns, management
failures and environmental violations at the nuclear weapons plants, little
had been documented of security lapses and efforts to correct them.
Most official information about protection of nuclear materials is
classified. Only people holding special security clearances are allowed in-
side areas of weapons manufacturing plants and laboratories that hold the
Evidence is now growing, however, that some federal nuclear facilities
have run the risk in recent years of allowing the theft of enough pluto-
nium to build a nuclear bomb.
Family size at record low
WASHINGTON D.C. - The American household has shrunk to its
smallest size ever, but the decline is slowing now that more Baby
Boomers are starting families of their own, the Census Bureau reports.
As of last March, the average American household included just 2.62
persons, a record low and less then half the number of people who lived in
a typical household at the time of the Civil War.
The typical family is slightly larger than a household, containing 3.16
persons. Households count single persons living alone, while the defini-
tion of family requires at least two people.
Household size plummeted 0.38 persons during the decade of the
1970's and had dropped a further 0.14 in the 1980's, showing that the
trend toward decline has eased, said Rawlings, a Census demographer.

E. German military warns protestors
EAST BERLIN (AP) - The military issued
its first warning yesterday in the turmoil that has
convulsed East Germany, and -a non-Communist
took over as head of state to end a 40-year lock
the Communists held on the presidency.
The government reported signs that angry cit-
izens were storming army installations, and mili-
tary leaders pledged to repel any attempts to seize
weapcas and munitions.
Manfred Gerlach, leader of the Liberal Demo-
cratic Party, replaced Egon Krenz as interim pres-
ident, the first time a non-Communist had be-
come president since East Germany's founding in
-1949. Gerlach's party recently broke off its long
alliance with the Communists after weeks of
Gerlach, looking somber, announced his ap-
pointment on TV, saying he was "not glad"
about taking on the duties.
The Communists advanced their emergency
session one week to Friday so they could over-
haul the party's structure.
Shedding such "Stalinist" operations as the
Central Committee and ruling Poltiburo is one
possibility. Breaking up the party is another.
A 25-member committee of Communists
now runs the nation.

the armed forces, quit yesterday.

Michigan Daily writer
On special assignment this
-,,week, Daily Staffer discovered
a pub in downtown Ann Arbor
which features exclusive draft
beers and ales from London,
tngland. The Daily has been
granted an interview with
Betty Heuss, here at Ashley's.
.S So tell us, what makes
Ashley's uniquely different?
BH We've centered our draft
beer selection around the true
ales and stouts from Great
Britain, where they drink
k primarily drafts instead of
bottled or canned beer.
D ...So you're emulating
that British tradition...
BH We've added nine new taps
to accomodate all of the English
draft beers available, including
Bass, Watney's, John Courage,
Burton Ale, Guinness Stout, and
D How did this come about?
BH I've spent a lot of time
researching English Ales and I
work in conjunction with dis-
tributors and their importers to
obtain Ashley's unsurpassed
selection. I'm really proud of the
fact that we can provide two of the
finest English ales available,
Whitbread Ale and Young's Bitter.
_DS_ Sounds exculsive!
BH We know of no other pub in
