Bush invites

Mandela to U.S.

WASHINGTON D.C. (AP) -
President George Bush telephoned
Nelson Mandela from the White
House yesterday and told him all
Americans "were rejoicing at his re-
lease" after 27 years in South
Africa's prisons and personally in-
vited him to the White House.
"I stated to him our desire to see
a peaceful evolution towards a to-

tally racially free South Africa, a so-
ciety without prejudice, a society of
total freedom," Bush told reporters in
the Rose Garden yesterday afternoon.
"He told me that he wanted to
consult some of his colleagues, but
that he expected he would be able to
accept my invitation," the president
said.
"It was a very friendly conversa-

tion. It lasted five or six minutes,
maybe, and he expressed his grati-
tude to me and to the American peo-
ple for calling," Bush said.
The president said the future of
U.S. sanctions against the white
minority government of South
Africa was not discussed during his
brief conversation with the African
National Congress leader.

"That did not come up. I will ad-
dress that at an appropriate time.
There's no time frame. I will be dis-
cussing that with our top advisers,"
said Bush, who on Saturday called
South African President F.W. de
Klerk and invited him to pay a sepa-
rate visit to Washington.
"I'm not prepared to express my
view on sanctions at this time.
We've had some momentous events,
and I think the thing is to let these
events settle in now," said Bush.
"There's differences of opinion in the
Congress... (and) American public
opinion. Let's just rejoice in the fact
that Mr. de Klerk took some very
forward steps and let us rejoice in the
fact that Mr. Mandela is free."
Asked whether he planned to send
Secretary of State James Baker to
South Africa now, Bush said, "I
have no immediate plans to do that,"
but said he would not rule it out.
Bush, asked whether he plans a
more active U.S. role in seeking a
peaceful solution to the problems in
South Africa, said: "Anytime that
human rights and equality are at
stake anywhere in the world, the
United States has a very useful role
to play, and I think both President de
Klerk and Mr. Mandela feel that
way. Indeed, both of them indicated
that to me.

Piots broke out yesterday in Cape Town, South Africa where thousands turned out to hear former political
prisoner Nelson Mandela speak. The man was wounded by police during the riot.

Africa and throughout the world.
"Freedom as we know it is a
struggle," he said. "We are not free
yet. We are not free until everybody
is free."
After the speeches, the celebra-
tion moved into the "cultural" part
of the evening. Led by the pounding
rhythms of bongo drums, people
joined hands across the Diag to dance
and join in singing, "Free Nelson
Mandela" and other songs of free-
dom.
"Soon and very soon, we are go-
ing to change the world... no more
apartheid now, we are 'going to
change the world.wIt's going to last
,forever and ever," they sang.
SFirst-year Residential College
student Julia Figueira-Mcdonough,
who attended the celebration, said it
is important that student action is
not limited to the struggle for free-
dpm in South Africa. "We should
put our money where our mouth is,
and encourage and support civil
fights groups here on campus," she
said.
"We can't preach it for other
cpuntries without having it here."

Some youths retaliated by hurl-

Clashes between police and cele-

least two other areas, while in Jo-

IN BRIEF
Compiled from Associated Press and staff reports
Aquino refuses to meet U.S.
Defense Secretary Cheney
HONOLULU- Defense Secretary Dick Cheney yesterday sliced one day
off a scheduled visit next week to the Philippines after President Corazon
Aquino said she would not meet with him.
Aquino, in a snubwhich comes one week prior to Cheney's visit to
the Philippines, announced Saturday she would refuse to meet him after
he expressed unhappiness over U.S. support for her government and after
she saw negative reports in the U.S. media about the efficacy of her
government in light of a series of coup attempts.
Even though a meeting with Aquino had not formally been placed on
Cheney's schedule, Aquino has routinely met with high ranking officials.
The lack of a get-together is stinging because of President's George
Bush's decision to send U.S. Air force jets to her aid during the latest
coup attempt December 1.
Chrysler cuts 2,300 workers
LAS VEGAS - Chrysler Corp. yesterday said it will cut deeper into
its salaried work force as it continues with an accelerated cost-cutting
program.
The nation's number three automaker in October announced a program
designed to carve $1 billion in costs from its $26 billion budget by the
end of 1990. At that time, Chrysler said 2,300 salaried employees, or
eight percent of its 31,000 member white-collar work force, would be
removed from the company's payroll.
Chrysler spokesperson Steve Harris said yesterday that more white-
collar workers would be cut through attrition. He said he knew of no
plans for further layoffs, and couldn't say how many positions the
company planned to eliminate.
Automotive News, a weekly industry journal, quoted sources in
Monday's editions as saying the new round of cuts would remove five
percent to 10 percent of the company's salaried work force, in addition to
those announced in Oct.
Mich. Sen. Engler to begin
gubernatorial campaign
LANSING, Mich. - Senate Majority Leader John Engler headed
north yesterday to kick off his gubernatorial campaign, officially starting
his effort to unseat Democratic Governor James Blanchard.
"I'm ready and the people are ready," he said.
The Mount Pleasant Republican will announce his candidacy today
in Traverse City, Grand Rapids, Midland, Detroit and Lansing.
No other Republicans are expected to enter the race, leaving Engler
free to focus on Blanchard all the way to the Nov. 6 general election.
Blanchard hasn't announced his intentions, but is expected to seek a third
four-year term.
As an unofficial candidate, Engler has criticized Blanchard, saying
his spending priorities are misplaced, especially on education. He also
rejected Blanchard's claim that the state has made a miraculous recovery
form the bitter recession of the late 1970s and early 1980s.
Oil spill cleanup continues
HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. - Cleanup continued yesterday on
Southern California beaches smeared with globs of oil spilled from a
tanker, but a 14-mile-long slick in the water may be impossible to skim,
the Coast Guard said.
One-third of an estimated 400,000 gallons of Alaskan crude spilled
Wednesday still menace the coast.
The National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration said that
23 percent of the crude spilled from the American Trader was skimmed or
picked up at sea as an oil-water mixture, while 43 percent evaporated or
naturally dissipated.
The unrecovered 34 percent, a 14-mile long, 4-mile wide slick, was
spread out on the water as a thin sheen and was nearly impossible to re-
trieve, Chief Warrant Officer Rick Meidt said.

Slimy swamp specimen
stops show-and-tell session
VERO BEACH, Fla. - A 3-foot alligator was returned to the wild
after a night spent in a gerbil cage and a trip to an elementary school for
an aborted-show-and-tell session.
The gator, found by 11-year-old Bradley Schlomer in his yard, was
ordered removed from the classroom and sent home by the principal, then

freed last Wednesday by an animal control officer.
Carol Joiner, a school secretary at Rosewood Elementary, said she
knew just what to do when she saw the gator that had been brought in for
show-and-tell: "I went out the back.
"Last week, it was a baby coral snake," she said. "They put it in a
little tin box and drove up to school. And I called the mother to tell her to
come back and pick up the snake and she said, 'What snake?"'
Bradley's mother, Sheri Schlomer, said she was unaware that her son
and his sister Bobbi had hidden the gator in the house.

hannesburg thousands of young
Blacks received an escort from traffic
police as they ran triumphantly
through the city. Columns of cheer-
ing activists jogged through Durban
and other cities.
Dr. Aslam Dasoo, tending the in-
jured at a first aid station, said about
100 people had been hurt, and jour-
nalists counted 130 injuries. There
was no immediate statement from
police.
In Johannesburg, hundreds of
young Blacks, joined by a few

whites, ran through downtown
streets shooting, "Viva ANC!" after
the release. Traffic police patrol cars
cleared the way for them.
In Soweto, the sprawling Black
township outside Johannesburg
where Mandela has his home, crowds
of supporters danced and sang in cel-
ebration, many under umbrellas be-
cause of a steady rain.
There were unconfirmed reports
that three celebrating Blacks in the
tribal homeland of Ciskei were shot
dead by police. In Inanda, a Black

township outside Durban, a local
journalist said she saw one Black
killed and five injured when police
fired at a celebration.
The decision to free Mandela was
announced Saturday by President
F.W. de Klerk, who had met Man-
dela the previous night. He described
the Black leader as "committed to a
peaceful solution."
The state-run South African
Broadcasting Corp. gave live televi-
sion coverage to the release.

watching me."'
Director of Public Safety at
Michigan State University, Bruce
Benson, who got his Doctorate
from the University, said he sup-
ports an autonomous, armed force on
campus. Benson said MSU has had
a fully deputized police department
since 1928 but that deputization is
not enough.
"It is unnecessary and demeaning
for security officers to be responsible
to the Sheriff," Benson said.
Director of University Relations
Walter Harrison said the regents
would have to consider financial is-
sues in addition to security require-
ments.
"Right now the University pays
the city $450,000 for police protec-
tion," Harrison said, "the regents
would have to draw up a cost/benefit
analysis-how much it would cost
to train the new officers, etc."
Harrison agreed that the question
of having campus police has histori-
cally been a sensitive issue. "Any
time you give officers authority,
people get nervous," he said.

MURDER

torney Office documents say War-
mus met Soloman at Greenville
Elementary where the two were
teaching during the Fall of '87. They
became romantically involved in the
Spring of '88.
Warmus changed schools in the
Fall of '88, and then again in the
Fall of '89, but maintained her rela-
tionship with Soloman.
On the morning of January 15,
1989, Warmus allegedly entered the
the Soloman home, knowing that
their 15 year-old daughter was away,
and shot Betty-Jeanne nine times.
Warmus then met Paul Soloman
at a Holiday Inn in Yonkers some-
time between 10:30 and 11:30 p.m.
After he left the hotel, Soloman re-
turned home to find his wife's body.
At the request of his lawyer,
Soloman ended his relationship with
Warmus immediately following the
incident.
He later became involved with
Barbara Ballor, another teacher from
Greenville Elementary.
Warmus then started to pursue
Soloman and Ballor. Reports said
she followed the couple to Puerto
Rico. On one occasion. Warmus.
