EL SALVADOR
Continued from Page 1
U.S. Embassy sources said about
1,500 rebels were fighting in the
city. Heavy combat alsoswas
reported in Santa Ana, a western
province, in San Miguel to the east,
around the central city of
Zacatecoluca and outside Usulutan, a
major city in eastern El Salvador.
The army press office stopped
providing casualty counts or other
information and telephone calls to
provincial cities did not go through.
Officials at the armed forces
mortuary said it had the bodies of 67
soldiers and military sources said
127 guerillas had been killed.
Morgues reported the bodies of 51
civilians.
Hospitals said 258 civilians had
been wounded. On Sunday, the
armed forces reported 65 soldiers and
55 guerillas wounded.
The U.S. Embassy said 86
soldiers, 202 guerillas and 17
civilians had been killed, a total of
305. Its count of 373 wounded
included 189 soldiers, 96 rebels and
88 civilians, the embassy said, and
43 guerillas were captured.
Rosales Hospital, a government
institution, was without water,
blood plasma, anaesthetics and other
supplies, said Dr. Fausto Cea, the
director. Stretchers lined hallways
outside emergency rooms.

Young people look at the bodies yesterday of rebels killed during fighting with government troops outside San
Salvador. Fighting began Saturday, and the sound of mortars and gunfire still echoed through San Salvador's
deserted streets yesterday. The fighting was the worst the capital has experienced in a decade of civil war. At
least 305 have been killed since the rebels attacked Saturday night in their biggest offensive since 1981.

NASA needs women, official says

by Eric Phillips
JoAnn Morgan, a senior adminis-
trator with the National Aeronautics
and Space Administration (NASA),
spoke about new developments for
women in aerospace and current
trends in space exploration yesterday
at Angell Hall.
The speech, sponsored by the
University's Center for Continuing
Education for Women, emphasized
the aerospace industry's currently
exhaustive search for new talent.
Morgan said the need for more
women and minorities in the work

force is especially important. Thus
hiring goals for the future predict a
marked increase in the percentage of
Hispanics, Blacks, and minorities
working for the space agency by the
year 2000, Morgan said.
While NASA seeks a diverse
range of employees, the agency al-
ready relies on an extremely varied
base in the private sector to achieve
its objectives. "Space research and
development is spread a lot broader
than people think," Morgan said. "It
involves a lot of people, and not just
scientists and engineers."

She said companies like Ken-
tucky Fried Chicken, which spon-
sored experimentation of chicken
embryos on one shuttle flight, con-
tribute to space exploration in unex-
pected ways.
Morgan, who currently is the Di-
rector for Payload Projects Manage-
ment at the Kennedy Space Center in
Florida, said NASA is continually
striving to cut costs with its tight
budget, and employees must fight
hard to keep their projects funded.
"You have to have the personality of
a pit bulldog and the eyes of an alli-

gator to be in this business," she
said.
Morgan praised the U.S. gov-
ernment's devotion to NASA.
"President Bush makes it a personal
point to be aware of what's going
on. The administration is quietly and
very importantly backing us," she
said.
Future exploration into black
holes, space debris, and supernovas,
or exploding stars, should convince
the public to support the space
agency despite the space shuttle
Challenger explosion in 1986.

IN BIEF
Compiled from Associated Press and staff reports
Court permits drug testing
WASHINGTON - The Supreme Court yesterday permitted random
drug testing for Boston police, offering new evidence that the justices
condone widespread testing of government employees in jobs affecting
public safety.
The court, without comment, let stand a ruling that forcing police of-
ficers to undergo the random tests - even when there is no reason to sus-
pect drug abuse - does not violate their privacy rights.
The court's action came within minutes of President Bush's naming
27 citizens, including medical pioneer Dr. Jonas Salk, as advisers in the
war on drugs.
With drug policy director William Bennett at his side, Bush urged the
advisory panel to encourage private employers to keep workplaces drug-
free and to coordinate anti-drug efforts.
The court has never ruled definitively in a case involving random drug-
testing of government employees and its approval of such tactics is not a
certainty.
Walesa gets freedom medal
WASHINGTON - President Bush bestowed the presidential Medal of
Freedom on Lech Walesa yesterday. The Polish trade union leader was re-
ceived in an emotional White House ceremony by Bush who promised
"American aid has begun and more is coming" to Poland.
Walesa arrived in Washington as the Senate reached a bipartisan com-
promise on a plan to give $657 million in aid to Poland and $65 million
to Hungary, ending a long battle over the proper scale of aid to those
countries.
On Wednesday, Walesa was scheduled to address a joint meeting of
Congress, the first foreigner without a government job to do so since the
American Revolutionary War hero the Marquis de Lafayette, a Frenchman,
spoke there in 1824.
His visit is sponsored by the AFL-CIO, which has backed Walesa's
Solidaity union since it was founded in 1980 as the first independent
trade union in the Soviet bloc.
Mother charged with using
cocaine during pregnancy
MUSKEGON, Mich. - A woman accused of smoking crack cocaine
less than 24 hours before giving birth was charged yesterday with deliver-
ing the drug to her child.
Kimberly Hardy was charged in Muskegon District Court with second
degree child abuse and delivery of cocaine. No plea was entered and she
was released on a personal recognizance bond. A preliminary hearing was
scheduled for Dec. 13.
Attorneys say it's the first Michigan case in which a mother has been
charged with delivering cocaine through her body to her child.
Prosecutors say laboratory tests done at the hospital where Hardy's son
was born Aug. 20 showed cocaine in the baby's and mother's systems.
The baby and Hardy's 4-year-old son and 1-year-old daughter were placed
in a foster home.
Boeing pleads guilty to felony
ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) - The Boeing Co. pleaded guilty yesterday
to two felony charges of illegally obtaining secret Pentagon budget docu-
ments and agreed to pay more than $5.2 million in fines and restitution.
Before accepting the plea worked out between the Justice Department
and Boeing, U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis grilled company lawyers about
whether "the penalty is appropriate to what I consider to be a serious vio-
lation of the law."
The company pleaded guilty to felony counts of unauthorized con-
veyance of govermnent documents. The charge carries a maximum fine of
$10,000.
Richard Lee Fowler, a former Boeing senior marketing analyst, is
awaiting trial next month on 39 counts of conspiracy and unauthorized
conveyance.
EXTRAS
Whatever its name, the
town remains the same
BAD AXE, Mich. (AP) - Lewisville, Louisville or Louieville? That
is the question?
There is a small town, well, not a town. A small burg. No, its not re-
ally a burg either.
Let's just call it a corner. An intersection. Asmall parcel of land at the
corner of Kinde and Huron City roads in norhteastern Huron County called
Lewisville. Or Louisville. Or Louieville.

While driving through the town one sign reading "Louisville Garage"
and another reading "Louisville Party Store" could be seen. As you are
leaving the place, the welcoming sign says "Lewisville."
John Martin, the Huron road commission secretary, can help to relieve
a little of the confusion. After checking the location in a 1904 Huron
County platbook, he discovered that two people with the last name
"Lewis" owned property there.
But after searching through a number of history books, none showed
the existence of an official "town" or listed a correct spelling.

JOA

added that his office is considering
asking for a rehearing.'
The JOA request, brought under
the Newspaper Preservation Act of
1970, said the Free Press would fail
without the deal. Knight-Ridder had
said if the plan were not adopted, it
would close the i58-year-old Detroit
newspaper.
Louis Mleczko, president of Lo-
cal 22 of The Newspaper Guild, said
he was disappointed with the deci-
sion. The Guild was the last of the
newspapers' unions to drop opposi-
tion to the arrangement.

"No more separate papers on
weekends, no more morning Detroit
Newses, no more Sunday Free
Presses they've known it in the past,
no more Detroit News as they've
known it in the past," he said.
"Advertisers are going to see sky-
rocketing advertising rates after a
short period of time," he said.
Some suburban newspapers said
the JOA would be bad news for
them, too. Joining the two Detroit
papers advertising departments could
present smaller papers with a huge,
near-monopoly on newspaper adver-
tising and force them to boost their
advertising rates, opponents have
said.

HOA

shortage of
"ancillary services" personnel, who
administer I.V.'s, draw blood, trans-
port patients, and make residents'
jobs easier. "Basically, with the U of
M resident, the buck stops there,"
Dr. Majeske said. "Anytime there's a
shortfall, the resident does all the
work."
Surprisingly, money is not one
of the union's key concerns in the
negotiations. Dr. Majeske said while
the association had asked for a 15
percent pay raise, hospital officials
only offered a five percent increase.
The union immediately lowered its
raise demands to 12 percent, and Ma-
jeske said it would go lower in ex-
change for hospital concessions on
their other demands.
"The union membership certainly
does not want a strike," Dr. Majeske
said. "They're very committed to
staying on the job, and taking care
of their patients."
Dr. Majeske said he was not cer-
tain how long negotiations would go
on.
He said the two sides of the bar-

gaining table are still very far apart.
"They have not given any significant
concessions on ancillary services,
days off, or on-call limitations," he
said.
Alan Brown, an orthopedic sur-
geon resident at the hospital, said he
normally works more than 100
hours per week.
"There is no doubt in my mind
that the long hours we are forced to
work adversely impacts patient care,"
Brown said. "I have seen people mis-
diagnose patients, misinterpret in-
formation, make poor judgments and
even fall asleep in the operating
room because of working conditions
here. It's time for a change."
Dr. Majeske said the lack of an-
cillary support is also a stumbling
block in the current negotiations be-
tween the hospital and the nurses'
union. "My guess is that many of
the nurses have similar frustrations,
in that often there are not the ancil-
lary support staff available to do the
kinds of things that would free them
up to do what they are trained to do,"
he said.
