Tornadoes and heavy ABORTION

storms hit N. Michigan

Associated Press
Two campers at Traverse City
State Park were injured Sunday when
violent winds and hail knocked a tree
onto their trailer as heavy storms and
tornadoes jumped across northern
lower Michigan.
A Flint couple in their 40s were
treated for injuries, and another 150
campers were evacuated from their
trailers and taken to the camp-
ground's main office until the storm
cleared, said park Manager Ivan

hand, said Rockwell, who didn't
know the names of the injured peo-
ple. He said they were released from
the hospital after being treated.
The storm, which included hail
and strong winds, swept through the
park and lasted less than an hour.
The sun appeared for the rest of the
afternoon, Rockwell said.

"It is ironic that in Michigan
teenagers need parental consent for
surgery, athletics, for school
absences and field trips, to get a
driver's license," but not to get an
abortion, Franz said.
Current state law does not require
a minor to obtain parental consent
prior to having an abortion. "A
secret abortion would create in a
teenager a barrier to her future
relationship with those people in her
life that are essential to her
development," Franz added.
Abortion, Franz continued, is
more damaging to teenagers than to
adults for four main reasons: They
may be making a decision about
their motherhood long before they
need to because they stand a big
chance of becoming sterile; it gives
teenagers a negative sense of
identity, and they begin to see
themselves as failures; the abortion
experience stunts the ability of
teenagers to grow; and abortion
causes a prolonged immaturity in the

She attributed the final reason to
what she called the "immature"
behavior of many pro-choice
advocates. "They do not want to take
responsibility and grow up," she
"We are fast becoming a
disposable society," said Franz. "We
dispose of diapers - now we can
dispose of babies too."
A member of the audience cited
Maine's abortion law, which allows
people other than parents give
consent. Franz said she disapproved.
"It is only the parents of a child who
have their best interest at heart;
everyone else has a selfish motive."
Conference attenders Leno Poli,
of Riverview, Michigan, has been
arrested three times for trying to
prevent women from entering
abortion clinics.
"Many women I have talked to
wish they had somebody who
explained everything to them before
they had the abortion, and most of
them say they would not have gone
through with it if they the

Drug Traffickers Extradited
WASHINGTON - Three reputed Colombian drug traffickers,
including one convicted in absentia in Detroit, have been extradited and
flown to the United States, the Justice Department announced.
Justice Department spokesperson David Runkel said the Colombian
government had extradited Bernardo Pelaez Roldan, Ana Rodrigues de
Tamayo and Roberto Peter Carlini. They were flown out of the South
American country to the United States by U.S. authorities Saturday, and
their trial is scheduled for November, Runkel said.
The extraditions bring to four the number of people brought to this
country from Colombia since the South American nation imposed
emergency measures against drug traffickers August 18. The measures
followed the assassination of a leading presidential candidate who was an
outspoken foe of the drug trade.
Hurricane threatens Texas
MIAMI - Tropical Storm Jerry strengthened into a hurricane yester-
day and shifted a bit westward, and forecasters said its center was expected
to make landfall on the upper Texas coast late in the day with dangerous
Hurricane warnings were posted from east of Freeport, Texas, eastward
to Intracoastal City, La. Tropical storm warnings were issued for the
Texas coast from Matagorda through Freeport, and for the Louisiana coast
from Intracoastal City to Morgan City.
In Louisiana's southwestern corner, the Cameron Parish Civil Defense
Office issued an evacuation order for coastal areas, and spokesperson Scott
Henry said the order would affect 8,000 to 10,000 people.
By noon the storm's center was about 110 miles south-southeast of
Galveston, Texas, the hurricane center said. The maximum sustained wind
speed had risen to 75 mph, one mile above the minimum for a hurricane.
It was moving north-northwest about 10 mph and was expected to turn
more toward the north late last night.
Ten Govs. file abortion brief
MONTPELIER, Vt. - The governors of 10 states, including
Michigan, have filed an amicus brief in a U.S. Supreme Court abortion
case, Vermont Gov. Madeleine Kunin announced yesterday.
Speaking at the annual meeting of the National Abortion Rights
Action League in Washington, Kunin said it might be the first time
governors have joined together to uphold what they see as a constitutional
The case, Turnock v. Ragsdale, challenges an Illinois law that imposes
burdensome requirements on private abortion clinics, which the governors
argue restricts access to abortion.
"Because this sensitive issue clearly affects the states, it is appropriate
for governors to make their views known to the Supreme Court." Kunin
The brief was signed by Kunin, Michigan Gov. James Blanchard and
the governors of New York, Maine, Massachusetts, Colorado, Alaska,
Washington, Oregon, and Ohio.
Panama shakes up military

of six key posts in the military yesterday, twelve days after the botched

Potatoes find their pedestal
WASHINGTON - Surely one of the smallest museums in
Washington, if not anywhere in the world, is the Potato Museum, which
occupies the basement of a yellow-brick rowhouse on Capitol Hill that is
the home of Tom and Merideth Hughes, a fun-loving couple of spud
fanatics, and their 5-year-old son, Gulliver.
Gulliver's nickname, naturally, is "Tater Tot."

Filling the two tiny basement rooms are 400 items from the
Hugheses' collection of 2,000 potato artifacts, from a bronzed, heart-
shaped potato donated by a Canadian woman to a North Carolina
inventor's digital "Tater Time Clock" which runs on electrical current
supplied by the acids in two attached potatoes.
"They are a comfort food when we feel lonely, sick or sad, but we also
see something of ourselves in them," said Mrs. Hughes, cuddling a spud
in her hand. "Look, it has eyes, a head, a face. It's somehow almost

They said the ANC, the largest
group fighting the white-led gov-
ernment, will continue its military
campaign and reject calls for negotia-
tions until the government legalizes
it, lifts their state of emergency, and
releases all political prisoners.
"If the government doesn't meet
our demands, we have no alternative
but to continue to fight for our free-
dom," said Andrew Mlangeni, 63.
Five of the ANC men, including
Sisulu and Mlangeni, were arrested
in 1963 and sentenced to life prison
terms in 1964, along with Mandela,
for plottinganti-government sabo-
tage. Masemola was convicted of
sabotage in a separate trial in 1963.
The others freed yesterday were

Kathrada, 60; Raymond Mhlaba, 68;
Wilton Mkwayi, 67; and Oscar
Mpetha, 80, who had been hospital-
