Lt. Gov. Leo McCarthy said at

Six people were crushed to death
in their cars when part of an old
four-story brick building toppled
onto the vehicles on Bluxome Street
in San Francisco, said police Lt.
One person died of a heart attack

Three hours after the 5:04 p.m.

disaster began to emerge as reports
came in of widespread destruction.
Buildings in San Francisco report-

McCarthy said a section of Inter-
state 880 in Oakland had caved in,
killing at least 40 people who were
in their cars.
"The rubble is so bad that they
still don't have an accurate count of
the fatalities," McCarthy said.

No major injuries were reported
at Candlestick, where Game Three of
the World Series was cancelled and
about 60,000 fans were evacuated.
Fans at Candlestick screamed as

The Michigan Student Assembly
will submit the names of 10 stu-
dents to serve on a committee which
will review the University's interim
anti-harassment policy, which has
been in effect since Sept. 15.
President James Duderstadt plans
to use the committee's input to help
draft a permanent policy, which he
hopes to implement by the begin-
ning of next year.
Last week, Duderstadt asked
MSA, the faculty's Senate Advisory
Committee on University Affairs,
and the Academic Service Board
(made up of administration officials)
to nominate three to five con-
stituents each to serve on the com-
But last night, the assembly
agreed to name twice the number of
students the administration requested
because representatives felt 3-5 stu-
dents were not adequate to represent
"We're submitting 10 people to
show how many interested and quali-
fied people want to serve on this
committee," said LSA Rep. Susan
Langnas, chair of MSA's Campus
Governance Committee, which is
charged with finding the students.
"The fact that seven people have
expressed an interest in two days
shows to us that three to five posi-
tions are not enough for the diversity
of student representation needed for
this committee," she said.
Langnas said she will have the

BERLIN (AP) - East Germany's ruling Politburo
held a meeting yesterday that could determine the fate of
leader Erich Honecker, whose stern rule has been chal-
lenged by mass emigration and pro-democracy protests.
In West Germany, the mass-circulation newspaper
Bild reported late yesterday that a special session of the
Communist Party Central Committee has been called
Quoting party sources it did not identify, Bild said
Honecker would be "pressured" to turn over leadership
of ,the party "to younger hands." Honecker is also East
Germany's head of state.
There have been reports and speculation for several
days that Honecker, who rejected talks with pro-democ-
racy groups, might be near the end of his tenure. Bild
reported Monday that the regional party leaders were
demanding his dismissal.
Secrecy surrounded the Politburo meeting and there
was no indication when news might emerge from it.
Demonstrations were reported in five cities on the
eve of the regular weekly meeting, including a march by
120,000 people in Leipzig that was the largest protest
since East Germany was founded 40 years ago.
Chants of "Freedom!" and "Democracy now!" rose
from the throng and marchers shouted "We're staying
here!" Most protesters in East Germany have been peo-
ple who do not want to emigrate and demand reform at
home akin to the reforms being pursued in the Soviet
Senate panel approves
bill requiring girls to get
LANSING (AP) - A senate panel approved
yesterday a measure requiring girls age 17 and under to
get their parents' consent for an abortion despite one
member's fears that the bill interferes with some forms
of birth control.
The Senate Human Resources Committee voted 4-1
to send the bill to the Senate floor even though Sen.
John Cherry (D-Clio) said it classified some birth
control pills and intrauterine devices as abortion devices
requiring parental consent.
"To me, this is a critical point. It moves the bill
beyond parental consent dealing with abortion. It
involves a whole additional new concept, changing the
definition of abortion," he said.
But the sponsor, Jack Welborn (R-Kalamazoo) said
he had no intent to interfere with contraception and will
try to work out a clarification.
"I don't want it to be read or interpreted that minors
cannot get or use birth control or contraceptives because
this is parental consent dealing with abortions," he said.
The measure defined abortion as the use of any
instrument, drug or other device to end a pregnancy.
Cherry said that could include IUDs and birth control
n pills that prevent a fertilized egg from being implanted
r in the womb. His attempt to exclude them from the
