University nurses went on strike
in July after negotiations with
hospital officials broke :down. In
August, Judge Melindi Morris
ordered them back to work, defending
the hospital's claim that patients
were being ill-affected by the strike.
One of the council's main
objections was over current policy of
mandatory overtime. The 745
striking nurses have demanded an 80-
hour cap on their work week a
guarantee of one day off each week,
shifts that last no more than 24
hours, and greater recruitment and
retention efforts from the University.

"We start moving from an area
where we're quite sure to an area
where we're not so sure," Cole said.
"We're just doing this narrow one to
give us a little time to create a more
permanent policy."
"We could go more broad in a
permanent policy," she added.
Reactions to the interim policy
from campus activists and leaders
were mixed.
United Coalition Against Racism
member David Maurasse, an LSA
senior, said the proposed policy was
very similar to the original. "It

doesn't do anything," he said.
Maurasse said the policy should
include provisions for speech aimed
at groups, not just individuals.
"The KKK can come on campus
and scream... and because it's not
directed toward a certain individual
it's protected. I think that needs to
be in a policy," said Maurasse.
Maurasse said he wanted more
consultation of students and minor-
ity groups. He added that the policy
should cover faculty and the
Sexual Assault Prevention and
Awareness Center Director Julie
Steiner, who has not yet read the
policy, said she was also concerned
by the lack of a provision dealing

Michigan Student Assembly
Student Rights Chair Nick Mavrick,
an LSA junior, remains strongly
opposed to any type of conduct pol-
"(It's the) University trying to
enforce its ethics on the commu-
nity," Mavrick said. "I don't think
it's going to work...at least we're
going to fight it."
University officials have asserted
that a different standard exists for an
educational community. The pream-
ble of the proposed policy states that
certain "attacks go beyond the
boundaries of protected free speech.
In those instances, the University
must protect the educational envi-
ronment of the University."

Two Colombian drug ,
traffickers await extradition
BOGOTA, COLOMBIA - The Colombian security agency said it has
a convicted drug trafficker and a reputed cocaine smuggler in custody and
is prepared to extradite them to the United States.
The office of Gen. Maza Marquez, head of the Administrative Security
Department, said Pelaez Roldan and Bueno Delgado were in a high-
security prison and extradition proceedings were under way.
The statement followed an announcement from the U.S. Justice.
Department calling for the extradition of Pelaez Roldan, an alleged
associate of the Medellin drug cartel convicted of drug trafficking charges,
five years ago in Detroit.
Bueno Delgado, allegedly of the rival Cali cartel, is wanted in San
Francisco and Tallahassee, Fla., on charges of money laundering and
importing about 13,000 pounds of cocaine.
Teen drug abuse decreases
LANSING - Seven Michigan schools that began a substance abuse
prevention program four years ago are reporting fewer students drinking,
driving drunk, and taking drugs,aofficials said Thursday.
The program involves a broad community approach with cooperation
from parents, teachers, coaches, law enforcement agencies, medical and
religious leaders and other local leaders, said Dave Dye, program specialist
for the Hazelden-Cork Health Promotion Services of Minneapolis.
The schools that began the program in 1986 were Battle Creek Harper
Creek, Ferndale, Gull Lake, Kalamazoo, Parchment, Sturgis and Traverse
City. Schools were responsible for the tab, but the Ruster Foundation of
Sturgis picked up much of it.
The surveys showed an overall 21 percent drop in current alcohol use.
Teacher convicted of trying
to molest 5th grade student
GRAND RAPIDS - A fifth-grade teacher was convicted Thursday of
trying to molest a student.
A Kent County Circuit Court jury found Norman Leo guilty of one
count of attempted second-degree criminal sexual conduct.
Leo, who has been teaching 15 years, was charged with molesting
three female students in January at Harrison Park Elementary School.
The three girls testified that Leo molested them in separate incidents in
the school's lunchroom, a classroom and in the playground.
Other children testified the girls told them they had invented the story
so Leo would be fired.
Leo, who said he'will appeal the conviction, could be sentenced to up
to five years in prison. He has resigned from the school.
Following a slow decade,
Michigan's population rises
WASHINGTON - Michigan and other industrial states of the
Midwest and the Northeast are pulling out of the population doldrums and
adding people once again, the U.S. Census Bureau reported Thursday.
Michigan's population grew from 9,088,000 in 1985 to 9,240,000 in
1988. In 1980, the population was 9,262,000.
The state's population in this decade hit its low in 1983, when it
dopped to 9,054,000. That year, 122,200 more people left the state than
moved into it.
Other trends notwithstanding, the bureau said the nation's overall
growth pattern continues to favor Sun Belt states like California and
At least since 1970, the Western region has remained the fastest
growing section of the nation, with the South second, the bureau noted.

Dear concerned people,
Today, the 12th of September
1989, we, 12 members of the
University community who acted in
poor taste on the Diag, would like to
take this opportunity to voice a
public apology. We, the students,
realize how tasteless and
unwholesome out actions were.
The twelve of us acted
independently of any club or
organization and it is we, ourselves,
who are deeply apologetic for any
materialthat was voiced. All
concerned members of the Ann
Arbor community can be assured
that never will such an act take place
Sincerely sorry,

worth up to $1 billion
WASHINGTON - Explorers who found the wreck of a 19th-century
ship two years ago off the South Carolina began this week to haul up a
trove of gold coins and bars that could be worth up to $1 billion, accord-
ing to a published report.
The booty found aboard the SS Central America includes fortunes
made in the California Gold Rush, The Washington Post reported today.
"I never dreamed it would be like this," said Thomas Thompson, a di-:
rector of the Columbus America Discovery Group, which is excavating:
the wreck.
The paddlewheel steamer carrying passengers to New York from San
Francisco went down Sept. 12, 1857, in a hurricane. Of the approxi-
mately 575 people aboard, only about 150 survived.
