MANILA, Philippines - Talks with rebel holdouts on Cebu Island
broke down yesterday after mutineers in Manila laid down their arms, and
a political rival predicted more attempts to overthrow President Corazon
At least 79 people were killed and more than 570 wounded in the
mutiny, which began last Friday in Manila and on Cebu, 350 miles south
of Manila.
What action will be taken against the rebels has not been made clear.
Aquino initially warned them to "surrender or die" and later declared a state
of emergency, but in the end allowed loyal military commanders to re-
solve the crisis peacefully.
Vice President Salvador Laurel, leader of the opposition party and
formerly Aquino's running mate, predicted more coup attempts until
Aquino addresses what he described as fundamental problems of poverty
and social injustice.

EAST BERLIN - The Communist Party agreed yesterday to cooper-

Leaders of Civic Forum appeared
on the main evening TV newscast

Zdenek Jicinsky, speaking for the
opposition, said one proposal was
that Slovak dissident Jan
Carnogursky be made first deputy
premier and other deputy premiers be
named from the Socialist Party and
the People's Party.
Civic Forum also proposed its
current spokesman, Jiri Dienstbier,
as foreign minister and economist

Vaclav Klaus, also a Civic Forum
member, as finance minister.
Jicinsky said Petr Miller, a
worker at the CKD industrial plant
in Prague and senior Civic Forum
representative, was suggested as so-
cial affairs minister.
There was no official reaction to
the proposals.
The ruling Politburo stripped

In practice, the article meant that
Communists dominated every sphere

Defense cuts may cost jobs
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Senator Carl Levin said yesterday he was
concerned about published reports that the Army will propose halting pro-
duction of the M-1 tank, which provides thousands of jobs in Michigan.
Defense Week, a military industry journal, reported in this week's edi-
tion that the Army is offering to scrap the M-1 after 1992 in keeping with
Defense Secretary Richard Cheney's order to identify billions of dollars in
potential spending cuts. That would require closing the M-1 plant in War-
ren, Mich., and another plant in Ohio, the journal said.
"I'm very troubled they're apparently trying that again," said Levin, a
Detroit Democrat and member of the Senate Armed Services Committee,
has fended off previous Pentagon efforts to halt M-1 production.
Levin repeatedly has accused the Pentagon of spending too much
money on nuclear weapons at the expense of conventional armaments and
Bill provides jail alternative
LANSING - Criminals who opt to serve time in an intensive "boot
camp" rather than longer sentences in a regular prison could have their
penalty extended in their local communities under legislation passed yes-
terday by a House panel.
The legislation is in response to Detroit Mayor Coleman Young, who
has called for creation of boot camps to help rehabilitate up to 2,000
young convicted felons and students expelled from Detroit schools.
The Department of Corrections has operated one Special Alternative
Incarceration program at Camp Sauble in Freesoil since March 1988. It is
considering opening at least two others.
The bill passed by the House Corrections Committee and sent to the
full House would give local communities the option of establishing simi-
lar "boot camps," but would include vocational, educational and drug
treatment programs in addition to work.
Aunt Bea, we hardly knew you
Traffic slowed to a halt, flags were lowered to half mast, and this great
nation of our's shed a collective tear yesterday as news leaked out that
TV's beloved Aunt Bea had cooked her last batch of fried chicken.
Here at The Daily, the news was taken with special grief. Aunt Bea in
semi-retirement had been working at the paper since 1968 when The Andy
Griffith Show was canceled.
Bea held a number of positions at the Daily over the years including a
brief stint as Opinion page editor in 1975. Bea was forced to resign the
post after drawing flak from students and administrators for her strident de-
fense of home-made mashed potatoes.
Rumors have surfaced that Bea, who in her later years became a stri-
dent conservative, said her last request was to be buried with all of this
year's Michigan Student Assembly election ballots.

But even if the amendment
passes, abortion clinics would still
be in serious trouble if abortion were
declared illegal, Briere added.
"It would still be a criminal act
in Ann Arbor, but with a lesser
penalty. No one would openly adver-
tise that they were breaking the law
repeatedly. If someone wants to buy
pot here, they can't just walk into a
store and get it," she said.
Abortion opponents have
