The agreement was reached after
two days of talks between the
Soviets and the finance ministers of
the Group of Seven nations - the

Several officials said the eco-

unfamiliarity with generally ac-

The Zion Lutheran Church was
filled with commotion yesterday as
hundreds of men, women and chil-
dren attempted to register for the
17th annual Washtenaw County
CROP Walk for Hunger. People
from various churches, synagogues
and other organizations walked 10
kilometers (6.2 miles) to raise
money for international hunger re-
lief and other development projects
of Church World Service.
Donna Ainsworth, the director
of the Interfaith Council for Peace
and Justice, said she hoped the walk
will reach the goal of $40,000 be-
fore Nov. 22, the donation deadline.
Ainsworth also said Michigan
was the leading state in raising
money for Church World Service.
"People raise money by going to
friends and family and asking them
:4 to pledge money per kilometer or
give a flat rate," Ainsworth said.
"We also do other events besides
the CROP walk to raise money for
local organizations. Twenty-five
percent of the money we raise goes
to local organizations, and the rest
is sent to international groups.
"We have a high turn out rate
from churches and synagogues
because we contact the churches and
they have individual members who
help us with the event," she added.
Tanya MacKrain, a senior in ele-
mentary education, heard about the
walk through her church. "This is
my first time out here, and I asked
friends to sponsor me, giving me
$1.00 per kilometer," MacKrain
Bridget Tomich, an RC sopho-
more, has already been involved in
hfnger walks through her home
Bhurch in Grand Rapids. "I plan on
running today instead of walking. It
will take me an hour tops." Tomich
Ten-year-old Brian Shaw was
also an enthusiastic participant of
-the event. "I got $120 from my par-
ents, friends, and people from
school. This is my first time walk-
ing and I am just here for the heck of
it," Shaw said.
Shaw was a representative of
three organizations yesterday: the
Boy Scouts, Church of the
Incarnation, and First Unitarian
Bob Opal, director of the Ann
Arbor Emergency Radio Team, was
there to oversee the event. "We are
here for safety on the course, watch-
9 ing to make sure nothing goes
wrong. My son stays at the end of
the course to know where the last
walkers are," Opal said.
Members of the team were sta-
tioned throughout the course to
monitor the event. Opal coordinated
the team via walkie-talkie.
