BOSTON (AP) - Would you

sandwich contains as much fat as 1.5
pints of ice cream? That a half dozen
chicken nuggets are fattier than a

to Student Legal Services and the
Ann Arbor Tenants Union to pay
back missed payments.
When the new Williams
administration checked its records
last April, it realized these organiza-
tions were owed $99,000.
After the University's Board of
Regents threatened several times
over the summer to cut MSA's
funding entirely, it agreed to bail out
the assembly and work out an plan
to pay back Student Legal Services
and the tenants' union in install-
ments. In return, MSA agreed to
extend their financial audit 4 months
to Dec. 31 so future deficits would
not be overlooked.
Hungary may revise rules on
moving East bloc citizens
BUDAPEST, Hungary - The deputy foreign minister said yesterday
that Hungary's agreements limiting movement of East bloc citizens are
out of step with its human rights commitments and it will seek to revise
Ferenc Somogyi also said Hungary will continue to dismantle border
barriers but does not plan to be a springboard to the West.
Budapest's decision this week to allow the exodus of more than 12,000
East Germans to the West was "a unique step," Somogyi said.
In Austria, border authorities said that by late afternoon the number of
East Germans crossing from Hungary en route to West Germany had
climbed to 12,545 since the freedom convoy began at midnight Sunday.
Smoking bill to face showdown
WASHINGTON - Tobacco state lawmakers vowed yesterday to grind
the Senate to a procedural crawl unless attempts to ban smoking on all
airline flights are dropped, but their unbowed opponents said they
welcomed a showdown.
Senate Majority Leader George Mitchell (D-Maine) planned a vote for
today on whether to block a filibuster by cigarette industry supporters.
The filibuster - unlimited debate in hopes of preventing a vote - is
aimed at killing legislation by Sen. Grank Lautenberg (D-NJ.) expanding
current airline smoking restrictions to all domestic flights.
The maneuvering came as outgoing Surgeon General C. Everett Koop
told a congressional hearing that minors should be forbidden from buying
cigarettes from vending machines.
Ford plans new car generation
DEARBORN - Ford Motor Co. plans to spend $1.5 billion to
develop the next generation of Ford Escort and Mercury Tracer subcom-
pact cars, to be introduced in mid-1990, the company said yesterday.
The cars will be made at Ford plants in Wayne, Mich., where the
Escort is assembled now, and Hermosillo, Mexico, where the Tracer is
The new generation of Escort and Tracer will be introduced in the
spring as a 1991 model. Ford executives declined to talk about details of
the car at the 1990 models' introduction yesterday.
Ford is making few large-scale changes for the 1990 model year.
About $600 million will be invested at the Wayne plant and about
$260 million at the Mexican plant. The remaining $640 million will be
spent at Ford component plants, for retooling suppliers, and in other Ford
divisions linked to the new Escort and Tracer program.

Engelbert said the group will
continue the boycott until the next
owner is known.
Earlier this year, the National
Organization of Women filed a civil
rights complaint against Domino's
on the basis of religious
discrimination, after Monaghan
cancelled a NOW fundraiser at his
Domino's farms headquarters. A
Domino's spokesperson said the
cancellation was due to Mr.
Monaghan's religious beliefs against
In 1988, Monaghan donated
$100,000 to support proposal A,
which banned Medicaid-supported
abortions in Michigan.
Becky Belknap, who owns three
Domino's franchises in Ann Arbor,
said the boycott, if it had any effect,
hurt franchise owners more than Mr.
Monaghan, even though franchises
pay a percentage in royalties.
Gary Grimes, manager of the
North Campus Domino's, agreed.
"Any boycott hurts me and my
employees more than it will affect

boycott had affected business at his
