by Dan Lichtenstein
Stew Leonard, a finalist for the
1989 National Entrepreneur of the
Year award, will speak at 1 p.m. to-
day at Rackham Auditorium, as part
of the 7th annual Creativity Innova-
tion & Entrepreneurship Conference.
Leonard, who is one of the most
successful entrepreneurs in the U.S.,
is the keynote speaker for the event
which runs April today and Saturday
at the Business School.
Leonard's unorthodox business
tactics, such as his theory that "the
customer is always right," have
aroused tremendous curiosity and in-
terest in his success. He owns Stew
Leonard's - a grocery store in
Norwalk, Connecticut - which
grosses over $100 million annually.
According to a New York Times' ar-
ticle, numerous companies, includ-
ing Wendy's, Wal-Mart, Marriott
and Union Carbide have sent execu-
tives to study Leonard's methods, in
an attempt to duplicate his success.
Encouraging students from all
majors to attend the conference,
Business School Professor Fred
Kiesner said, "(Students will) learn
about how to run a creative, exciting
and successful business that provides
honesty, service and quality which is
what we so badly need in America
There is a conference registration
fee of $30.00, which includes a lun-
cheon, receptions and conference ma-
terials. Although there is an admis-

Some 3,000 Honduran students marched in the center of Tegucigalpa on Wednesday, burning a U.S. flag

jor Japanese effort to lower trade ten-
sion appears to be paying dividends,
although doubters question how
much effect the concessions actually
will have on the huge U.S-Japan
trade imbalance.
The Japanese, who until recently
were being blasted by the administra-
tion for intransigence, are now get-
ting praise from President Bush.
Even a key congressional critic, Se-
nator Max Baucus, (D-Mont.), says
he is impressed with Japan's new
found willingness to compromise.
U.S. and Japanese negotiators
hoped to wrap up talks today on an
unprecedented agreement aimed at
correcting the trade imbalance by re-
forming fundamental business and
economic practices in both coun-
The talks, which originally were
scheduled to last only Monday and
Tuesday, went into extra sessions
because of the great number of de-
tails that had to be reviewed, offi-
cials said.
U.S. Trade Representative Carla
Hills said the length of the discus-
sions did not indicate any unexpected
roadblocks, but she did sound a
warning about what could happen if
the discussions did not succeed.
"If the Japanese do not open their
second largest market in the world,
there will be enormous political
pressure to restrict those (trade) op-
portunities that have given them so
much," she told an audience of
American manufactures. "It will kill
the goose that laid their golden egg."
The talks are unprecedented in
their scope because they aim not at
boosting sales of specific products
but at correcting broad barriers to
trade in both countries.
The effort has promoted Japanese
critics to charge that the United
States was trying to remake their na-
tion and scrap centuries of tradition.
However, the Bush administra-

tion, which began the discussions
last July, has maintained that the
proposals would benefit Japanese
consumers by increasing competi-
tion and thus lowering retail prices,
currently among the highest in the
industrial world.
Bush met Wednesday with
Nubuuo Matsunaga, a special emis-
sary from Japanese Prime Minister
Toshiki Kaifu, and afterward the
White House issued a statement
praising Kaifu's role in bring about
a new spirt of cooperation.
In the past ten days, U.S. and
Japanese negotiators have settled
disputes involving sales of Ameri-
can-made telecommunications
equipment, satellites and supercom-
Baucus, chairman of the Senate
trade subcommittee, told reporters
Wednesday he was impressed by
Japan's efforts.
"I am willing to bury the hatchet
with Japan if Japan is willing to
open its markets," he said.
"Congress is quite hopeful about the
new attention given in Japan to re-
solving trade issues."
The trade committee of the Na-
tional Association of Manufacturers
(NAM) urged the administration
Wednesday to put Japan on the trade
"hit list" again, regardless of the
outcome of the current talks, to keep
pressure on Kaifu's government.
"The Japanese have out-negoti-
ated us in the past by making
promises where there is no follow-
up," said NAM President Jery Jasi-
Negotiators involved in this
week's discussions were preparing an
interim progress report outlining re-
forms each side is willing to make
with a final report scheduled for early

Survey shows 121 million
people live in polluted areas
WASHINGTON - House negotiators worked on details of new clean
air legislation yesterday as the latest government air quality survey
showed 121 million Americans living in pollution exceeding federal
health standards.
The Environmental Protection Agency also said in its annual assess-
ment of air quality that the urban smog problem became 15 percent worse
in 1988 compared to the year before, partly because of an exceedingly hot
summer. That year is the latest for which datak a valthle.
The survey showed 121 million people lived in areas in which air pol-
lution exceeded the health standards for various pollutants, including
The agency statistics, some of which had been reported previously as
preliminary data, showed emissions of sulfur dioxide and nitrogen dioxide
both increased slightly while levels of carbon dioxide and dust or dirt de-
clined somewhat.
The emissions are largely the product of automobile travel, industrial
releases or the burning of fossil fuels by electric power plants.
Gerber assists allergic boy
NEW YORK - A Gerber research plant is retooling to resume pro-
duction for a market of one: a profoundly allergic 15-year-old boy who
cannot live without a special baby formula the company stopped making
a few years ago.
For a few days this month, one quarter of the production space at the
Gerber Products Co. research center in Fremont, Mich., will be devoted to
making MBF, a formula only Raymond Dunn Jr. wants or needs.
"People here are working on this on their own time," George Purvis,
Gerber research director, said yesterday. "We all have our own jobs and
this is one we added on."
Raymond, who lives with his parents in the Catskills town on Yankee
Lake weighs only 31 pounds. He was born with an abnormally small head
and brain. He is severely physically and mentally retarded, and cannot
speak or see.
Mandela, de Klerk to talk
about Black political power,
CAPE TOWN, South Africa - President F.W. de Klerk and Nelson
Mandela agreed yesterday on a new date for formal talks between the gov-
ernment and the African National Congress on giving Blacks a share of
political power in South Africa.
The president and ANC leader met for three hours. The date of the for-
mal talks was not announced and the two did not appear together after the
Before the talks began, de Klerk accused Mandela of dissuading Black
homeland leaders from meeting with the government as scheduled yestpr-
De Klerk told reporters that during his meeting with Mandela, "I made~
the point that no one should inhibit discussions which need to take place
on the widest possible scale."
Jury rejects deli owner's
claims to Newman's own
BRIDGEPORT, Conn. - A jury yesterday rejected a delicatessen
owner's claims that he was promised a slice of Paul Newman's food com-
panies, ending a closely watched trial where profits were the issue, but.
Newman was the star.
The Academy Award winning actor was applauded as he left the court
house by a crowd of about 200 reporters and spectators waiting on the
"Alright, Cool Hand Luke," yelled one well-wisher.
"Congratulations Paul," shouted another, as a couple of motoristsi
tooted their horns.
The Superior Court jury deliberated just five hours over two days be-
fore deciding that Newman never promised Julius Gold 8 percent stock in
the companies, Newman's Own Inc. and Salad King Inc.
Be careful with Easter eggs4
NEW YORK (AP) - Fears of salmonella and cholesterol needn'
scramble Easter egg decorating plans, if eggs are handled properly and
eaten sparingly.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture recommends that there are no
cracks in the shells and that they are protected from dirt, pets and other
sources of bacteria.
Hard-cooked eggs eventually will spoil, and should not be left at roont
temperature for more than two hours if they are to be eaten, USDA said.
The Blue Bird Circle, a Texas organization that has sold hand-painted
Easter eggs for 66 years, is taking no chances. It canceled this year's sale
on the advice of its lawyers, who were worried children would eat spoiled
eggs and get sick.
