Gamble also said he expects to pre-
sent further information on medical
and dental benefits proposals next
: Three other GEE proposals seem to
'have stalled, Odier-Fink said. They
"'address training compensation, creation
of graduate employee mentors and recal-
culation the number of hours a graduate
employee is required to work each week.
GEO bargaining committee mem-
,bers expressed frustration over the pace
*.of the proceedings, and said the admin-
..istrative team has slowed negotiations.
"They should be better prepared to deal
-with these proposals," Odier-Fink said.
But Gamble said GEO continues to
present new issues that make the nego-
tiations more complex.

"The University is aware of concerns
in other union meetings, but the GEO
typically brings up new concerns that we
do not have information on,' he said.
Odier-Fink said the meetings have
been kept closed, only allowing atten-
dance of the bargaining team - not all
GEO members - in the interest of
expedience. This might not be the case
for much longer.
"If we're not going to benefit from
closed doors, we won't keep them that
way," he said.
The GEO Steward's Counsel will
vote Nov. 18 to decide whether the
meetings should be opened, and Odier-
Fink said there will be a decision soon-
er if circumstances continue to dissatis-
fy GEO negotiators.
"We are opposed to open meetings
because much more can be accom-
plished this way," he said.

Hurricane Mitch
sparks aid appeal

To help evaluate inhaled investigational drug

TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras (AP) -
Unable to provide Hondurans such
basics as gasoline, food and water, a
government overwhelmed by Hurricane
Mitch's destruction made an urgent
appeal for international aid yesterday.
Across Central America, Hurricane
Mitch has killed an estimated 9,000
people and destroyed roads leading to
areas where authorities say thousands
were still missing.
A revived Mitch was expected to hit
South Florida today as a fast-moving
tropical storm, bringing four to eight
inches of rain before heading toward
the Bahamas. Mitch had sustained
winds of 45 mph yesterday when it was
250 miles west of Cuba, producing rain
and winds to the island
In Honduras, the largest cities have
become virtual islands accessible only
by air. The U.S. Air Force was helping
Honduras deliver aid to remote towns,
communications minister Tomas
Lozano said.
Honduran officials estimated their
country's death toll at 7,000 yesterday,
though no one knows how many really
died. Some 11,000 people officially were
listed as missing. As many as 1 million
are homeless, said Col. Rene Osorio of
the national emergency committee.
"We really don't know what the num-
bers are. There are places we haven't
reached yet," Osorio said.
Mitch hit the Honduran coast last
week and parked itself there, dumping
several feet of rain onto the poor nation
before moving across the Yucatan
Peninsula and into the Gulf of Mexico.
It left behind a stunning wake of death
and devastation across Central America.

"How do we continue, without food,
without sleep?" said Yolanda Marvella
Arraya, who has spent nights outside
on a soggy mattress along the debris-
strewn banks of the Choluteca River
since flooding destroyed her family's
home. "I don't know what to think. My
mind needs help."
In neighboring Nicaragua, as many
as 2,400 were believed dead. Rains
there last week caused a crater lake atop
the Casitas volcano to break open
Friday and spill tons of mud onto vil-
lages along the slopes.
Nicaraguan military spokesperson
Capt. Milton Sandoval warned that
mines planted by guerrillas in the 1980s
could surface in flooded areas. An esti-
mated 100,000 mines were left behind.
El Salvador declared three days of
national mourning for the 239 dead
there. In Guatemala, 194 were reported
dead and at least 77,900 had evacuated
their homes. At least six people were
killed in southern Mexico and seven
people died in Costa Rica.
There was also no sign yesterday of
the 282-foot Windjammer Barefoot
Cruises yacht Fantome, which disap-
peared off Honduras with a British cap-
tain and a Central American crew of 30
more than a week ago.
The Nicaraguan government pleaded
yesterday for more helicopters to deliv-
er food and medical supplies. Its air
force has only six helicopters.
A U.S. Army base in Panama sent
three helicopters to Nicaragua on
Monday and the U.S. government
pledged to send another seven. Mexico
said it was sending 10, and Panama will
send two more.

$5 million reward offered for bin Laden
NEW YORK - Exiled Saudi millionaire Osama bin Laden was charged yester-
day with masterminding the embassy bombings in East Africa and authorities
offered a record $5 million reward for his capture.
A federal indictment charged bin Laden and Muhammad Atef, the military com-
mander of bin Laden's alleged terrorist organization, with conspiracy in the Aug. 7
bombings at U.S. embassies in Nairobi, Kenya, and Dar es Salaam, Tanza
Twelve Americans were among the 224 people killed.
The indictment portrayed bin Laden as the director of a powerful terrorist orga-
nization with roots in several countries. His influence even reached a Brooklyn
office that provided aid to refugees from the war in Afghanistan in the 1980s, it said.
The conspiracy charges filed in U.S. District Court in Manhattan alleged that the
embassy attacks were the culmination of a terrorist campaign that had escalated
since 1992.
U.S. Attorney Mary Jo White said bin Laden kept increasing his hateful rhetoric
until February when he directed Muslims "to kill Americans anywhere in the world
they can be found."
"In a greater sense, all of the citizens of the world are also victims whenever and
wherever the cruel and cowardly acts of international terrorism strike," White s
"And it is up to the authorities of the world to respond vigorously and unrelenti
ly to such terrorist acts."

Court hears activist
deportation case
WASHINGTON - The Supreme
Court heard arguments yesterday in the
government's Il1-year effort to deport a
group of Palestinian activists who
claim they were targeted because of
their political views.
The dispute, which entangles free
speech and national security concerns,
tests when people who face deportation
can get through the door of the nation's
federal courts with the assertion that
their constitutional rights have been
violated. The case is one of the most
closely watched of the term, and the
oral arguments drew a host of advo-
cates representing the immigrant com-
munity to the high court.
The eight Los Angeles activists asso-
ciated with the Popular Front for the
Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) were
arrested in 1987 and charged with visa
violations, including failing to main-
tain student status, working without a
permit and overstaying a visit.
The activists -- seven Palestinians

and a Kenyan -- asserted that they
were singled out in retaliation for their
political views and that they should not
be forced to undergo an administrative
deportation process before they can
bring their First Amendment case to a
federal court.
Leno jokes with
Glenn and crew
SPACE CENTER, Houston - John
Glenn took a break from geriatric
experiments and Mission Control yes-
terday, checking in with "The Tonight
Show with Jay Leno" for a few jokes
about Metamucil and those "young
punks" flying with him.
In a welcome departure from the nO
mally staid interviews conducted from
the space shuttle Discovery, Glenn trad-
ed a few good-natured barbs with the
late-night comedian. The 77-year-old
senator said this time in orbit, he's got
more food choices - he can mix his
Tang with Geritol or Metamucil.
The 10-minute conversation was
broadcast last night.

It suggests a certain normality in the
search for Iraq's weapons of mass
destruction as mandated by U.N.
Security Council resolutions that ended
the 1991 Gulf War.
But U.N. officials said yesterday this
is trickery aimed at world opinion as
the Security Council debates how to
react to Iraq's decision Saturday to cut
off links to the U.N. Special
Commission charged with ferreting out
dangerous weapons.
The council is divided, with the
United States and Britain leaning more
toward military action. Yesterday,
Defense Secretary William Cohen was
talking up a military strike to Arab
allies but - publicly at least - he was
not getting backing.

Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, throw-
ing the U.S.-brokered Mideast peace
agreement into confusion, yesterday
postponed cabinet consideration of the
plan for the third time in a week w*
insisting that the Palestinians take fur-
ther security measures.
Netanyahu said he would not seek
his cabinet's approval for the agreement
until Yasser Arafat's Palestinian
Authority made clear when it would
arrest 30 men identified as terrorist
fugitives, including a dozen serving in
the Palestinian police.
"Either this agreement means some-
thing or it doesn't," Netanyahu said in
an interview.
