handed out sheets advising students
what they could do to alleviate envi-
ronmental problems. Among the
possible solutions was mass recy-
cling. Since currently there is no ef-
fektive way to recycle plastic and
styrofoam, there have been proposed
bans on these products.
"People can ask the establish-
nients they frequent not to use styro-
foam or plastic when avoidable,"
said committee member Rachel
Stevens, an LSA senior.
coThe "Pyramid of Waste" was
constructed to resemble the ancient
pyramids in Egypt. Designers hoped
to convey the notion that problems
of waste are not short lived.
"If we were to leave the pyramid

But not everyone was pleased
with the location of the sculpture.
LSA first-year student Sandy Snaden
was dismayed because the waste
pyramid was built directly on the

garbage on the' M,"'said Snaden. "I

"Both of those schools had a

worried though, since something
like this has never been done before
at the University. People might not

Those that do know about it

Young, fire dept. differ on r
Devil's Night fire totals
DETROIT- Mayor Coleman Young said yesterday there were 223
fires - six fewer than last year - during this year's three-day Devil's
Night tradition of arson.
Young displayed a chart showing a steady decline in the number of
fires since 1984, when firefighters battled 810 blazes.
But John Chakan of the Detroit Firefighters Association said he be-
lieved Devil's Night fires increased this year. Firefighters responded to
710 calls during the three days, he said. However, those calls included 0
false alarms, trash fires and non-fire emergencies, he added.
Young said the union distorted figures to help contract negotiations
because it supports his opponent in the Nov.7 mayoral election, Tom
Police arrested 399 minors on charges of ignoring the city's three-day
6 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew, and eight people on arson charges, officials said.
Flight 255 trial progresses
DETROIT - While attorneys for families of the victims of a 1987
plane crash try to prove the plane was defective, McDonnell Douglas 0
Corp. will present an astronaut to testify to its safety, company attorneys
Northwest's Flight 255 crashed Aug. 16, 1987, killing 156 people on
board and on the ground near Detroit Metro Airport.
In opening arguments before a federal court jury, Northwest Airlines'
and crash victims' attorneys portrayed the McDonnell Douglas MD-80 jet-
liner as ill-designed, hard to control on takeoff, and equipped with mal-
functioning electronic warning devices.
McDonnell Douglas will present former astronaut Pete Conrad, now a
McDonnell Douglas vice president who was involved in the aircraft's de-
sign to testify that the MD-80 has had an excellent safety record and that
the Northwest Airlines crew was at fault, said attorney Donald E. Shely of
Earthquake strikes Japan
TOKYO - A major earthquake struck off the northeastern Honshu Is-
land early today, officials said. Three coastal villages were ordered evacu-
ated by Japanese authorities for fear of tidal waves and the region's main
highway was closed.
There were no immediate reports of casualties or damage from the
quake, which measured 7.1 on the Richter scale, the Central Meteorologi-
cal Agency in Tokyo said. That was the same magnitude as the Oct. 17
earthquake that devastated the San Francisco Bay area.
The quake was centered about 60 miles off the coast at a depth of 20
miles, the agency said. Officials closed the main expressway through the
affected region for inspection and overnight trains were stopped to check
the condition of the rails.
Sierra Club challenges laws
LANSING - New Michigan laws relaxing standards for handling
garbage incinerator ash violate federal law for disposal of hazardous
waste, an environmental group said yesterday as it prepared a lawsuit to
block the measures.
Anne Woiwode, director of the Mackinac chapter of the Sierra Club,
said a suit seeking to overturn the state laws will be filed in U.S. District
Court in either Lansing or Grand Rapids within the next week.
However, Wiowode contends that two measures approved earlier this
year violate the federal Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, which
prohibits any state from enacting standards less stringent than those in the
"We depend in this country on ensuring that a common bottom line
exists in the regulation of pollution, and that bottom line is set by federal
law. The state of Michigan has wantonly defied the federal government's
bottom line on hazardous waste regulation,"she said.
