try" in the wake of the massive
Westward stream of visitors.
More than three million East
Germans headed West over the week-
end, while several hundredtthousand
people made their way to Berlin
from other countries to join a 4-day-
old celebration.
As East Germans bought Western
goods, stores' inventories of food
and items such as radios were de-
pleted.
In Hamburg, East Germans
swarmed into the red-light district,
cramming into sex shops, leafing
through magazines, examining mer-
clandise and getting a close look at
what they've long been told is West-
ern moral decadence. However, most
of them did not buy anything.

Organization.
But Baker said, "They have made
it very clear to us... that they will
not use force in Eastern Europe."
"To do, they said, would mean
that perestroika has failed," he said,
using the Russian word for the So-
viet reforms.
Baker said the administration
wants to work with the Soviets " to
assist them where we can with tech-
nical economic advice in their efforts
to move to a free market economy."
The Soviets "won't ask us for
American cash," Baker said. "They
haven't yet. They've said they're not
going to and I don't believe we'll see
that in Malta."
But if the Soviets want to move
from competition to cooperation, he
added, "we need to see cooperation in
Central America."
The secretary of state said the
United States wants to avoid
"overreacting" to the situation in
Eastern Europe or doing anything to
promote instability, He said it was
premature to even consider a meeting
between Bush and new East German
communist leader Egon Krenz.

Platz yesterday. A new East-West passage was opened nearby. Hundreds of thousands of East Germans have
poured into West Berlin since the borders were opened Thursday.

Compiled from Associated Press and staff reports
Cheney: Soviets continue to
modernize nuclear weapons
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Defense Secretary Dick Cheney
insisted yesterday that the Kremlin continues to replace older nuclear
weapons systems by deploying new ones, although a published report said
some deployments had been cut in anticipation of an arms control deal.
"The fact of the matter is the Soviets have continued to modernize
their strategic forces," Cheney said on the NBC-TV program "Meet the
Press."
He also said the Soviets "still have thousands of nuclear weapons
aimed at the United States."
Cheney did not flatly deny a report published yesterday in The Wash-
ington Post that quoted unidentified government sources as saying the
Soviets had stopped producing four new weapons systems.
Responding to that assertion, Cheney said the Soviets might have
slowed deployments of some new systems in order not to exceed a ceiling
proposed for the Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty.
Oil spill cleanup bill passes
WASHINGTON - Proposed legislation to prevent oil spills on the
nation's waterways, including the Great Lakes, and provide for effective
cleanup when they occur, sailed through the House with near-unanimous
support.
The bill passed 375-5 last Thursday, backed by all of Michigan's rep-
resentatives except William Broomfield (R-Birmingham) and Bob Traxler
(D-Bay City) who did not vote.
Two amendments to the bill did gather opposition. The House voted
279-143 to let states set stricter oil-spill liability standards than those in
the federal law. Opponents said the amendment would drive reputable oil
transporters out of business, while supporters said states have the right to
pass laws that meet their particular environmental needs.
Parochial schools sue state
LANSING - A lawsuit filed by four state churches that operate
schools is challenging the state's authority to require reports with infor-
mation on teacher certification. The number of church schools refusing to
give the state information about their operations has jumped from 30 to
200 in the past year according to the Michigan Association of Christian
Schools.
The suit seeks to block the state from closing schools that fail to re-
port, contending that it interferes with their religious freedom. A hearing
on the state Department of Education's request that the suit be dismissed
is scheduled for today in Ingham County Circuit Court.
The certification law, under fire from fundamentalist Christians for a
decade, was upheld in 1986 by an equally divided Michigan Supreme
Court. The U.S. Supreme Court refused to review the case in 1987.
Bill may lower auto insurance
LANSING - Sometimes the conventional wisdom dies hard.
That's how state Rep. Nelson Saunders describes reaction to a State
Insurance Bureau report on auto insurance that found low rates paid by ru-
ral motorists were being subsidized by high rates paid by Detroit drivers.
For years, the Detroit Democrat said, insurance companies have in-
sisted that selling insurance in Detroit was a losing proposition because
of auto theft and accident rates. But the report issued last week found that
Detroit drivers are more than paying their fair share for auto insurance.
Saunders has sponsored legislation to reduce auto insurance rates 20
percent statewide.
Industry representatives are preparing to scrutinize those findings. In-
surance Commissioner Dhiraj Shah said industry reaction to the-report "is
obviously pretty negative."
EXTRAS
Skull confirmed as that of
long-dead de-composer
VIENNA, Austria - An Austrian paleontologist and anthropologist
said Thursday that his studies confirmed a skull long assumed to belong
to composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was authentic.
Gottfried Tichy, a professor at Salzburg University, said that in three
and a half years of study he found no indications the skull was not
Mozart's.
The skull has been kept in the Mozarteum School of Music in

Salzburg since early this century and was assumed to be that of the com-
poser.
Tichy said he carefully examined not only the skull but contemporary
portraits of Mozart, historical accounts of his life, medical reports and cor-
respondence.
He said the skull belonged to a man aged 30 to 40 and had specific
characteristics seen in portraits of Mozart. Tichy said it also showed signs
of a hemorrhage that could have explained headaches Mozart reportedly
complained of in his later letters.
Mozart died at age 36 in 1791.
