and member Maureen Hartford, vice
president for student affairs, will wit-
ness the signing.
In a Sept. 12 letter to Office of
National Service Chair Eli Segal,
Checkoway wrote of his hope that the
government would "extend service
opportunities beyond the present ini-
tiative."
In addition to inviting one repre-
sentative of each university newspa-
per in the country to today's event,
White House officials and members
of congress selected "dedicated" stu-
dents to attend.

Romulus High School senior Tom
Dolm, who testified about commu-
nity service in front of the House
Education andLaborCommittee, will
attend the ceremony with Ford, who is
chair of that committee.
"(The bill) builds on the legacies
of the GI bill and the Peace Corps,"
Ford said. "From its modest start in
this legislation, national service will,
we hope, nurture a more compassion-
ate, public-spirited consciousness
among our citizens and help to rebuild
a sense of community we seem to be
sorely lacking."
The bill passed the House on Aug.
6, by a vote of 275-153 before head-
ing to President Clinton's desk for
final approval.
Meanwhile, the White House offi-
cially announced over the weekend
that the alternative/grunge band Soul
Asylum would play several songs at
the Rose Garden ceremony, sched-
uled to begin at 10 am.

DETROIT (AP) -Nearly half the
work force of Blue Cross Blue Shield
ofMichigan walked offthe job yester-
day after weeks of working without a
contract.
About 3,400 workers, represented
by the United Auto Workers, struck
about9:30a.m. after negotiations over
wages, benefits and an attendance
policy broke down over the weekend.
More than 1,000 workers at the
Detroit headquarters, mostly claims
processors, customer service repre-
sentatives and clerical workers,
chanted, "No contract, no work," and
carried picket signs and umbrellas as
a light rain fell.
Company spokesperson Rudolph
Difazio said claims will continue to
be "processed and paid on time" by
management. He encouraged policy
holders to mail in questions and avoid
telephoning, since the telephone op-
erators had walked out.
The union's three-year contract
expired Aug. 31, but the UAW had

"We have spent over $400,000 on
our side," she said. "I don't for a
second believe that figure (of
$127,00)."
Elsa Cole, the University's gen-
eral counsel, could not be reached for
comment.
To further compound the case, there
is a question of who is responsible for
paymentof the award. The University
said it will pay for any judgment
against Adelman, because he is in-
demnified by the University.
Perlmutter, however, might have to
pay part or all of her portion of the
judgment directly out of her pocket.
"It's not clear at the moment who
willberesponsible forpaying the judg-
ment," Perlmutter said. "I hope it will
be clarified in the next day or two."
She added that she maintains her
innocence and that the case wrecked
havoc on her personal life.
The University will not comment
on its responsibility for her damages.

sor of industrial engineering.
In addition, Whitaker announced

matters. Faculty objections to the

thieves," Shipps said. "The object is
to make your bike harder to steal than
the one next to yours."
Katz admitted that the registration
decal is not the perfect way to ensure
recovery of one's bike.
"The decal could be removed fairly
easily," he said.
He added that it is often difficult
for officers to find stolen bicycles,
even registered ones.
Baisden admitted that DPS does

told workers to keep going to their
jobs while talks continued. Talks broke
down Sunday, and no new negotia-
tions were scheduled immediately.
Union officials said that among
other things, they sought a 3 percent
wage increase, which they had re-
ceived in previous contracts. The com-
pany was proposing 1 percent pay
raises each year, Dennis Vanderlind,
UAW international representative,
told The Grand Rapids Press.
"The company is not giving us
what we're asking for," said Trudy
Dressel, a scheduling clerk at a Blue
Cross office in Detroit. She said pay
and benefits were main sticking points
in getting a new contract.
UAW spokesperson Reg McGhee
said President Owen Bieber was in
Dearborn yesterday discussing the
new tentative Ford Motor Co. con-
tract reached last week.
Blue Care Network, an affiliate of
Blue Cross Blue Shield, was not af-
fected by the strike.
Phil Green, Phinney's attorney, said
the University should pay for
Perlmutter's portion of the judgment.
"If they will pay for Adelman,"
Green said, "they ought to pay fbr
hers, too."
Perlmutter, who has retained sepa-
rate legal counsel from thefirst day of
the case, said an appeal will be filed
on her behalf regardless of the
University's decision.
The complications of this case
aside, Phinney and the University are
still waiting foradecision in Phinney's
second lawsuit.
The court action, filed at the sam
time as the first case, charges the Uni
versity- as an institution- failed to
abide by the Whistleblower Act.
Green said it is likely that the Uni-
versity will lose this case, based on
the judgment in the first case.
A guilty verdict, however, will
probably not result in any increased
monetary compensation, Phinney said.
Instead, the University could be forced
to return Phinney's intellectual prop*
erty, as well as several boxes of her
data.
policy, designed to prevent discrimi-
natory speech, prompted the modifi-
eation.
"The policy didn'tfit the academic
part of the University," he said.
The freedom of inquiry, to freely
express controversial issues in class
is critical for the knowledge of stu-
dents to grow in the classroom,.he
added.
not recover many of the bikes re-
ported stolen. Exact figures were un-
available.
"A great number of these (stolen
bikes) are not registered," Baisdei
said.
Baisden said officers look for sto-
len bikes while on patrol, and often
make spot checks at bicycle racks on
campus in an effort to retrieve them.
However, the large number of bikes
on campus and around town make it
nearly impossible for any law enforce-
ment agency tomakeacomplete check
for stolen bicycles.
