Monaghan may sell Domino's,

DETROIT (AP) - A letter from
Domino's Pizza Inc. owner Tory
Monaghan saying he may sell the
company comes at a time when the
fast-food company's fast-rising star
may be dimming, an analyst said
Domino's, the No. 2 pizza-maker
in the nation behind Pizza Hut Inc.,
delivers more pizzas than any other
company, but profits are falling.
"Domino's has been on such a
fantastic growth rate," said Gary
Stible, founder of New England
Consulting, a marketing and man-
agement consulting firm in
Westport, Conn.
"Companies like Domino's can-
not continue to grow at their pace,"
he said Stible.

of the Ann Arbor-based pizza deliv-

wide campaign to defy apartheid laws
began Aug. 2. The protests were de-
signed to mobilize opposition to the
segregated parliamentary elections,
which excluded blacks, but activists

ery company, sent a letter last week
to about 800 franchise owners, 16
regional offices and 300 employees
at corporate offices that he is explor-
ing a sale so he can spend more time
doing charity work.
But Stible said there may be an-
other reason.
"Domino's has become princi-
pally concerned about the cap on (the
growth of) this business," he said.
"Their share of the total universe is
beginning to start to flatten out."
Domino's spokesman Ron
Hingst said Monday he knows of no
active sale negotiations.
"He hasn't even made a decision
to sell it or not to sell it," said
"He (Monaghan) has had a num-
ber of offers over the years," Hingst

prove of such an investigation.
Phillips was also accused of "petty
politics" and Kittrie at the time
likened the whole affair to the
"McCarthy witch hunts."
Kittrie wouldn't speculate about
possible future involvements in
campus politics. "At this point, I'm
only thinking about hitting the
books," he said.
Kittrie said he expects MSA to
do just fine without him. "My leav-
ing will not negatively affect MSA."
MSA Music School Rep. Laura
Sankey said Kittrie would be missed
by everyone at MSA.

Domino's is the world's largest
pizza deliverer with 1988 sales of
$2.3 billion, a company record. Its
profit fell to 6.1 million last year
from $7.7 million the year before,
according to news reports Hingst did
not dispute.
Hingst said Domino's record

sales last year followed a pattern be-
gun in the early 1980's of record
sales every year as the number of
stores grew. Now, Domino's oper-
ates or has franchised 5,200 stores
But Domino's dominance of the
delivery business is being threatened.

however, reacted indifferently.
"It's a free world, you can do
what you want," said one employee
responding to the protestors, "but
you can also work where you want."
Pavelich said the coalition's
protests played no role in
Monaghan's recent deliberations
about selling Domino's.
She defended Monaghan, saying
his involvement in Honduras and the
pro-life movement stem from his
strong Catholic faith.
The movement to boycott
Monaghan's product began July 18
with a similar demonstration outside

Domino's Farms. Since then,:
Engelbert said, the coalition has--
been conducting an information
campaign by distributing leaflets andj
selling bumper stickers.
The coalition is composed of
seven groups ranging from the
National Organization for Women to
the Latin American Solidarity
Committee, all of which object to at
least one of Monaghan's many in-
Engelbert said that the coalition
has received over 50 inquires already
and added that the boycott was turn-
ing into a national movement. There
are six communities that are actively

not fight in
dent Bush, trying to dispel fears
about the use of U.S. military forces
in the war on drugs, said yesterday
there is "no contemplation"of com-
bat roles for U.S. service personnel
sent to Latin America.
Bush made his declaration after
White House press secretary Marlin
Fitzwater complained thereare "a lot
of people who are trying to portray
this as another Vietnam situation or
the beginning of massive troop
buildup and so forth."

At the capitol, meanwhile, Sen-
ate Appropriations Committee Chair
Robert Byrd, (D-W.Va.), said he will
introduce legislation increasing next
year's anti-drug spending by $3.9
billion, paying for it by cutting do-
mestic and defense programs across
the board by 0.575 percent.
Byrd said his provision, to be
proposed today, would bring total
federal spending on drug programs to
$10.1 billion in fiscal 1990, which
begins Oct. 1, $2.2 billion more
than Bush has proposed.

Compiled from Associated Press and staff reports
Coleman Young favored in
Detroit mayoral primaries
DETROIT - Slightly more than three of every ten registered voters of
the 507,000 registered Detroit voters are expected to cast ballots in th
city's mayoral primary today.
The turnout will favor incumbent Coleman Young, the city's first
black mayor seeking an unprecedented fifth term, according to Deputy City
Clerk Jeff Blaine.
Twelve-term congressman John Conyers and accountant Tom Barrow
are rated neck-and-neck for the No. 2 spot.
Conyers picked up the endorsement of the Rev. Jesse Jackson over th
weekend, backing which he called priceless to his campaign. Barrow gath-
ered endorsements from a few city unions and church leaders, the bulk hav-
ing already committed to Young.
Young was backed by 42 percent of Detroit voters surveyed by WJBK
TV and Wayne State's Center for Urban Studies, more than twice the sup-
port of any of his challengers.
The poll found Conyers with 14 percent and Barrow with 12 percent of
the vote. Twenty-five percent of the 427 registered city voters contacted
were undecided.
Soviets say U.S. arms policy
is now at a 'peculiar lull'
MOSCOW - Foreign Minister Eduard A. Shevardnadze accused
president Bush yesterday of depriving the world of major arms control
agreements by not taking advantage of opportunities created by the Reaga4
"I think that because of the restrained, indecisive position of the
American administration, both the U.S.A. and the U.S.S. R., as well as
the entire world community, have lost a lot," Shevardnadze said in
interview printed in the government daily Izvestia.
Shevardnadze contrasted the "constraint and timidity" of the Bush
administration on arms control with progress made during the presidency of
Ronald Reagan.
"After recent stormy years, a peculiar lull has set in. The tempo of
movement toward new agreements, in any case on the key direction of real
nuclear disarmament, don't satisfy us," Shevardnadze said.
Big Three cleaning up fuels
DETROIT - The nation's three largest automakers and some
companies are focusing research on a new kind of.gasoline to curb
pollution for the 1990's rather than methanol, an automotive journal said
In a copyright story, Automotive News quoted unidentified sources as
top executives of General Motors Corporation, Ford Motor Corporation
and Chrysler Corporation with several oil companies signed commitments
to work on developing reformulated gasoline rather than methanol.
Officials of all the companies said yesterday denied the conclusions;
saying that all options car fuels are being considered. The American
Petroleum Institute also disputed the story.
In addition to developing cars that can run on methanol, experiments
going on at each of the Big Three to develop a vehicle that could run on a
variety of fuels, such as methanol, gasoline and ethanol.
Bush looks to lease Saudi oil
WASHINGTON - The Bush administration is pursuing talks with
Saudi Arabia on leasing Saudi crude oil for the U.S. emergency oil stock-
pile, a government source disclosed yesterday.
Such leases would be expected to amount to a U.S. option to buy t
Saudi crude in an emergency.
Leasing would be a major shift from the Energy Department's policy of
buying oil for the Strategic Petroleum Reserve. Mexico currently supplied
all the oil for the U.S. stockpile under a contract expiring Nov. 30.
The main reason for leasing would be to reduce the cost of filling the
oil reserve. The government currently is paying Mexico a market-based
price for the roughly 60,000 barrels a day. In mid-August the price was
$17.17 a barrel.
Singing 'Tomorrow' today
NEW YORK - She must be between 3-foot-10 and 4-foot-4, sing
loudly and clearly, be able to act and tap dance, look 10 or 11 years old
and, of course, not be afraid of dogs.
The search for Broadway's new Annie began yesterday morning when
29 little girls walked on stage at the Golden Theater to face Martin

Chardin, director of "Annie 2: Miss Hannigan's revenge," the new musical
about the world's most famous orphan.
"Why are we doing this mad thing?" sighed composer Charles Strou
as he prepared to listen to endless renditions of a little melody he wrote
called "Tomorrow." "We should be playing poker."
Some girls waited for more than four hours before they were let into the
theater. The audition was open to anyone with enough courage to be there.
The show's first star, Andrea McArdle, is now 25, married and the
mother of a year-old daughter.
