Pilots review tentative settlement
ST PAUL, Minn. - Leaders of striking pilots at Northwest Airlines spent much
of Saturday going over a proposed contract settlement that could end the strike that
has grounded planes since Aug. 28.
"We're always optimistic; we always wanted to negotiate a settlement," said Paul
Omodt, a spokesperson for the pilots union, as he arrived at a downtown h*
where the union's 17-member Master Executive Council was to decide whether To
accept the agreement, reject it or put it to a full vote of the 6,200-member union.
The day got off to a slow start as the council waited several hours for a final ver-
sion of the agreement, which was still undergoing last-minute language revisions.
By mid-afternoon, the full council had started going through the proposed set-
tlement. Discussions were expected to last into the evening.
"They've got to go through the whole proposed settlement in there," Omodt
said. "T'hey have 17 people that can vote in there, so there are 17 different opin-
Members of the Air Line Pilots Association went on strike Aug. 29 after two
years of failed attempts to negotiate a new contract.
If the proposal is accepted by the ALPA executive council, it would be at 10
midweek before any service is restored. A vote by all the union members wo d
take four or five days and delay service even longer, Omodt said.

DOT plan may make
air bags safer for kids
WASHINGTON - It should have
been a forgettable, low-speed fender-
bender. Instead, Robert Sanders car-
ried his dying daughter from the mini-
van he had been driving after an air
bag had slammed her unconscious.
Today, thanks in no small measure
to Sanders' dogged, painful crusade to
prevent such tragedies from happen-
ing to others, the Transportation
Department plans to announce a rule
designed to assure that air bags are
safe for children as well as full-sized
Current federal rules require only
that air bags protect belted and
unbelted male dummies in head-on,
30-mph crashes into an immovable
But air bags powerful enough to do
that can inflict deadly force on small
bodies. As of Aug. 1, 65 children had
been killed by air bags, almost all in
accidents that would not otherwise
have been fatal.
The proposed rule to be unveiled
today would require air bags to pass
safety tests using crash dummies of all
sizes -- large adult male, small adult
female, child and infant.
It will be open to public comnt
for 90 days and may be modi
before it takes effect.

Tensions rise after
Afghan militia action
ISLAMABAD, Pakistan - Fears of
a military clash between Iran and
Afghanistan rose to new levels yesterday
as the Afghan Taliban militia announced
it had taken control of an opposition
stronghold with strong ties toIran.
Mullah Wakil Ahmad, chief
spokesperson for the Taliban, said its
forces had seized Bamian, a town in
central Afghanistan that is the capital of
the country's Shiite Muslim minority.
Afghanistan's Shiite community, which
numbers more than 600,000, maintains
strong spiritual and political ties with
Iran, whose population is predominant-
The Taliban, the ultra-orthodox
Islamic movement that controls about
90 percent of Afghanistan, adheres to
the Sunni branch of Islam.
The Taliban announced its latest
conquest as the first of 200,000 Iranian
troops mobilized for military maneu-
vers along the Afghan frontier - the
second such exercise in the past two
weeks. Western diplomats said yester-
day that the Iranians could launch a
strike against the Taliban as early as

African nation, analysts say.
Hundreds of soldiers and thousands
of civilians have died in the Congolese
conflict, which started Aug. 2 when the
rebels launched their campaign tc
unseat Kabila. Since then, the capital,
Kinshasa, has been plagued by short-
ages of food and other supplies.
Although civil war seems likely to
continue for a protracted period,
observers say none of the region's nati ns
can afford long-term involvement irs
war, either politically or economically.
