Contract negotiations between
the University of Michigan Profess-
ional Nurses Council (UMPNC) and
University Hospital administration
officials are proving to be a "slow
4nd lengthy process," said Toni
Shears, a hospital information off-
University nurses went on strike
in July after contract negotiations
with hospital officials broke down.
In August, Washtenaw County
Judge Melinda Morris ordered them
back to work. The nurses are
currently working regular hours.
Both sides met in mid-September
jn unmediated negotiations to debate
several minor contract issues. Acc-
ording to Shears, the 14 articles
under discussion were reduced to 12
asa result of these meetings.
* Neither side sees an immediate
resolution to the issues under debate.
Shears admits that its difficult to
"have a firm estimate on how long
this process will take," and Stoll
also foresees the negotiations
"dragging out" over an indefinite pe-
riod of time.
The next fact finding session is
scheduled for October 17. The fact
finder is encouraging both sides to
pursue further unmediated negotia-
tions - the next session of which is
scheduled for October 10.

Mubarak optimistic on chances
of Israeli-Palestinian dialogue
WASHINGTON (AP) - Egyp-
tian President Hosni Mubarak met
with President Bush Monday on
Mideast peace efforts and said he saw
a "golden opportunity" for a break-
through between Israel and the Pales-
Mubarak said failing to seize the
opportunity "would be a grave mis-
take" and that he and Bush agreed "to
work closely together in order to uti-
lize the existing momentum."
"The continuation of the status
quo is hazardous to both" Israel and
the Palestinians, the Egyptian leader
told reporters after an Oval Office
session lasting nearly an hour.
However, even as Mubarak
sought to promote his plan, which
includes a demand that Israel agree in
principal to giving up seized lands,
aides to Prime Minister Yitzhak
Shamir said the Israeli leader does
not intend to alter his own Pales-
tinian peace initiative.
"The United States policy is to
oppose additional settlements in the
occupied territories," Secretary of
State James A. Baker III said. And
presidential press secretary Marlin
Fitzwater declared, "Our policy is we
don't allow U.S. aid to be used for
resettlement in the West Bank."
In Jerusalem, Yossi Ahimeir, a
spokesman for Shamir, said the Is-
raeli leader does not intend to alter
his own peace plan despite pressure
from Egypt, the United States or the
rival Israeli Labor Party.
Shamir's plan calls for elections
in the occupied territories to choose
delegates for negotiations with Is-
rael. However, final status on the
lands occupied by Israel since 1967

Toxic wastes in Great Lakes
will cost $10 billion to remove
LANSING - Controlling the spread of toxic chemicals from mud on
the bottom of Great Lakes harbors and rivers will cost at least $10 billion
and take decades, government experts say.
Contaminated sediments in Great Lakes waterways stem from indus-
trial chemical discharges and agricultural runoff. The contamination in-
cluded dioxin, DDT and PCBs.
The poison poses a threat to fish and wildlife, and scientists believe
sediments contribute to fish consumption warnings. Meanwhile, some
Great Lakes birds have been born with serious defects.
But the scientists are divided over how to deal with the contaminated
sediments. Some say it's safer to leave the sediments in place and cap
them with clay, while others urge removal of poison mud to halt contin-
ued release of pollutants.
By 1992, EPA officials hope to have more sophisticated technology to
more safely contain, remove and dispose of contaminated sediments.
Rains hamper Hugo recovery
CHARLESTON, S.C.- Rain, floods, and a tornado heaped more
misery on Hugo-wrecked South Carolina yesterday, interrupting rebuild-
ing efforts from the storm that pummeled the coast 12 days ago.
Damage has been estimated at $3 billion or more, with crop damage
placed at approximately $100 milllion.
Aid from across the nation continued to pour into South Carolina for
victims of the hurricane. The response has been so overwhelming,
though, that some officials don't know what to do with everything.
"We have clothing backed up on us, including in boxcars that have
come from the West Coast," Major Ken Bush of the Salvation Army said.
"People, generally speaking, only want a number of clothes... and we've
reached that certain amount. We're backlogged."
Relief officials deluged with clothing urged donors to send building
supplies, non-perishable food, and cash.
New Breathalyzers unveiled
KALAMAZOO - New technology could replace the 1954-vintage
Breathalyzer if police tests that begin later this month show the device
helps Michigan's age-old war against drunken-drivers.
Almost every law enforcement agency serving Kalamazoo County will
be testing the Infrared Intoximeter 3000 for six months before a decision
is made on using the system statewide, said Ronald Thill, Michigan State
Police program director for breath and alcohol testing.
The instrument uses infrared rays to detect alcohol on a motorist's
breath. It is being touted as cheaper, faster and more reliable than its 35-
Roadside equipment, which gives only and indication of alcohol, will
remain the same; the infrared system will be used when a suspect is
brought to the police station.
Michigan's college tuition
prepayment plan attacked
LANSING - The state's college prepayment plan is a good invest-
ment only for parents whose children go to the University of Michigan or
Michigan State University, a study released yesterday said.
The study by the Mackinac Center said the Michigan Education Trust
is over-priced for students who will attend the 13 other state universities.
State Treasurer Robert Bowman attacked the study, released as the
MET program began its one-week enrollment period.
"It doesn't take a Ph.D. from Harvard to figure out if you want to
measure value in only dollars and cents, you're better off going to one of
the expensive schools," he said.
But he said the program is designed to be "one price for any school" so
that infants who are enrolled now are not limited to a specific school 18
years from now.
Woodland Gonzo golf course
features nightmarish hazards
ROTHBURY, Mich. - A visor may be required head wear for most
golf courses, but on Duncan Myers's links, a head net to protect one from
the distraction of buzzing insects is a more practical choice.
Rather than felling trees to ease the flight of golf balls, his course
forces one to play through a series of pathways in the woods.
"The whole statement I'm trying to make is to save the trees and the
environment," he said. In the development of his course, he left the trees
in place save for clearing just enough brush to allow passage for a Gonzo
"If you have a head net on and spray up, you can stay out all day,"
Myers said. "Then you can jump in the lake to cool off."
As in miniature golf, players are provided with appropriate equipment
for the course: Gonzo Golf consists of old iron clubs with padded heads
and used, neon-colored tennis balls.

A similar symposium may be
held next term and one definitely
will be held next year, probably in
late October, Tillis said.
This was the fifth time in the last
two years that this type of event has
been held. The program included an
introduction of the symposium's
theme, an hour-long discussion of
the theme and a half an hour wrap-
up. After the introduction, the group
randomly divided into discussion
groups, each containing about 10
participants and 5 facilitators.

Duderstadt said there have been

remarkable progress has been made
in bringing minority graduate stu-

He said the University now ranks
second to Howard University in the
