U.S. may
fight over
lake use
PORT HURON (AP) - The
United States and Canada will clash
on the use of international waters if
Great Lakes levels continue to drop,
a Canadian environmental consultant
said.
"The level of the lakes will con-
tinue to fluctuate up and down, but
the long-term trend is downward,"
said Canadian Climate Planning
Board Chair Jim Bruce, "and this
will happen at a time when demand
for water from the lakes is higher
than ever."
Bruce told a conference on cli-
mate change and global security last
week in Ottawa that the St. Clair
River, which connects Lake Huron
to Lake St. Clair, could carry nearly
a third less water by the year 2050.
Global warming is robbing the
waterway of its resources, Bruce
said. Some scientists think accumu-
lating carbon dioxide and other heat-
trapping gasses will raise the average
world temperatures 3 to 8 degrees in
the next 40 years, he said.
Oceans would gain water as polar
ice melts, but inland bodies like the
Great Lakes could drop as much as 8
feet as heat increases evaporation.
Declining Great Lakes levels will
mean that Canada and the United
States risk conflicts over water use,
Bruce said.
Population trends suggest that
the United States' demands on the
water system will be greater than
Canada's. Bruce said the disparity
could pit Canada against Michigan
and other Great Lakes states.

HARASSMENT
Continued from page 1
over the general population," said
Michael Schechter, president of the
University's American Civil Liber-
ties Union chapter. "(Harassment by
the stranger on the street) is just in
society at large; it could happen on a

vacation to New York."
The police, if they could identify
the harasser, would have jurisdiction,
but the University can do little to
stop it, Schechter said.
Schechter explained the Uni-
versity needs concrete rules to fight
harassment and that developing a
policy is only "half a commitment
to stopping harassment."

Steps have been taken in some
areas. Several University depart-
ments now hold harassment aware-
ness workshops. Creative efforts
such as carpeting the elevators in
Markley residence hall have lead to a
decrease in the hall's graffitti.
But whether the University will
ever be able to eradicate its harass-
ment problem is questionable.
"I don't know," Schechter said.
"If you're religious, you might think

IN BRIEF
Compiled from Associated Press and staff reports
Big screen loses Garbo at 84
NEW YORK - Swedish-born movie star Greta Garbo died yesterday
in a New York Hospital at the age of 84.
Known for her performances in more than 24 films, including
"Camille", and "Ninotchka" which are now film festival staples, the
woman known worldwide simply as "Garbo" began her career in silent
films. She reigned as the supreme movie queen throughout the 1920s and
'30s.
Following her retirement, Garbo remained reclusive. She never acted
and divided her time between her Manhattan apartment and various retreats
in France and Switzerland.
A health food enthusiast, Garbo enjoyed long walks and rarely suffered
from illness.
No further information has been released concerning her death.
Newspaper: de Klerk may
unveil plan to end apartheid
JOHANNESBURG, South Africa - A leading newspaper reported
yesterday that President F.W. de Klerk plans to make a "statement of in-
tent" this week to eliminate remaining apartheid laws.
The Sunday Star of Johannesburg, citing "political insiders," said de
Klerk was expected to outline his plans in a speech to Parliament.
De Klerk has initiated a series of reforms of South Africa's system of
racial segregation since assuming power in August. He says he wants to
dismantle apartheid and negotiate a new constitution that will include the
country's 28 million Blacks.
He opposes a one-person, one-vote system, however, saying it will re-
place white domination with Black domination. He also has not spelled
out his position on several major apartheid laws.
Endangered elephants will
give birth in Syracuse zoo
SYRACUSE, N.Y. - The amorous escapades of a 10,000-pound
Asian elephant named Indy have captured the attention of the zoo world.
The 18-year-old pachyderm has impregnated two females at the Burnett
Park Zoo. Babe is expected to deliver her baby around the last week of
April and Romani is due in July 1991.
That's earth-shaking news for the continent's zoos, where just 62
calves have ever been born in captivity. It's also a sign of promise for the
35,000 to 45,000 Asian elephants that remain in the wild as an endan-
gered species.
There are only six other zoos with pregnant elephants, whose gestation
period is 22 months.
"Copulation is a learned behavior among elephants. A female has to
see another couple mating, otherwise she won't allow the male to breed
her," said Doyle, who broke some ribs in attempts to get Babe matched
up with a mate.
Kalamazoo may start state's
first 'boot camp' for women
KALAMAZOO - Michigan and Kalamazoo County officials are con-
sidering setting up the state's first "boot camp" for women prisoners.
The proposal calls for Kalamazoo County to pay for building the camp
by selling bonds, and then letting the state lease half the 240-bed facility
or renting cells on a per-day basis.-
State money would pay off the bonds, said county budget Director
Wesley Freeland. Boot camp prisoners would be women between 17 and
25 years old who were convicted mostly of property or drug crimes and
were being sent to prison for the first time.
Boot camp prisons are military-like facilities where young inmates
who are deemed possible to rehabilitate are subjected to rigorous and
highly structured physical training, with close attention paid to improving
their attitudes.
GM to introduce electric car
. DETROIT - The switch is nearly on: General Motors Corp. is prepar-
ing to become the first U.S. automaker to sell electric-powered passenger
cars in more than 50 years.
"The odds are better than 50-50" that the GM Impact will go into pro-
duction, said one California official after meeting with GM officials re-
cently.
When the Impact was introduced earlier this year at the Los Angeles
auto show, GM Chair Roger Smith said he was concerned that the car

would have too little range and that its cost, $20,000, would be too much
for the average consumer.
The Impact can reach 0 to 60 in about eight seconds and has a top
speed of 100 mph. It can travel 120 miles with two occupants before it
needs recharging.
Also equipping the cars with air conditioning is problematic because it
drains the battery. That could be a critical factor in the Impacts test mar-
ket - sunny California.

"Within months we have watched
nation after nation climb out of the
darkness and cold of captivity into
the suwilight of freedom," said
Archbishop Robert Runcie, spiritual
leader of the Church of England and
70 million Anglicans worldwide.
In other Easter celebrations, Ro-
manians and East Germans gave
thanks for the freedoms won by their
pro-democracy revolutions, and reli-
gious leaders called for peace and
tolerance in Lebanon and Israel.
