AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) - Bargainers for

worked overtime Wednesday, doing nearly round-
the-clock bargaining to fashion a new contract for
75,000 workers.
Talks went through the night and into the day
Wednesday, breaking for two hours around noon
before resuming. While the union and the company
offered no comment on the talks, such lengthy negoti-
ations have been a sign in the past that the two sides
were close to a deal.
DaimlerChrysler has emerged as the lead company
for the UAW to negotiate a replacement for three-year
contracts covering 407,000 workers. Talks between
subcommittees of. the union and General Motors

The Michigan Daily - Friday. September 17. 1999 -

Students balance
religious and
academic duties

testers rally in central square in Grozny yesterday. Some 15,000 demonstrated to denounce Russian strikes.
dso criticized the Russian government for linking Chechnya to a series of bombings in Russia.

Former President
Gerald Ford spoke for
affirmative action
GRAND RAPIDS (AP) -- The
legal system is not immune from the
bias and prejudice found in society.
according to a State Bar of Michigan
panel.
The state bar's Open Justice
Commission held its first public
forum Wednesday to examine issues
ranging from hate crimes to diversi-
ty in state law schools, The Grand
Rapids Press reported.
"It's important for the public to
feel they can trust the court and
judicial system," said Michigan
Supreme Court Justice Marilyn
Kelly, who monitored the three-hour
panel discussion
The forum attracted more than
100 lawyers on the first day of the
annual state bar meeting in Grand
Rapids, which ends Friday.
Among the speakers was Jeffrey
Lehman, dean of the University of
Michigan Law School, which has
spent S3 million defending its affir-
mative action policies against law-
suits filed by three white law school
applicants, who seek to get the uni-
versity's affirmative action policy
tossed out.
The trial is expected to begin next
year.
Former Michigan Supreme Court
Chief Justice Conrad Mallett Jr.,
who describes himself as a product

of affirmative action, praised the
university. So did Grand Rapids
Mayor John Logic, who graduated
from the University of Michigan
Law School.
Logic told of former President
Gerald Ford, who wrote a recent edi-
torial in The New York Times citing
the continued need for affirmative
action.
"If an 86-year-old ex-president
can feel that strongly about this
issue, I suggest that be the philoso-
phy of my administration for my
next four years, and I encourage my
alma mater to fight on this," Logic
said.
Jeffrey Montgomery, executive
director of the Triangle Foundation,
which monitors hate crimes against
gays, reminded the audience that
hate crimes can and will happen
everywhere.
"There were three similar beatings
in Michigan the week of Matthew
Shepherd," said Montgomery, refer-
ring to the gay student murdered last
fall in Wyoming.
Fighting is important wherever
there is discrimination, said Donald
Cohen, director of the Anti-
Defamation League of Michigan.
"Some wonder, should they be
less open in terms of being a target
in the Jewish or gay or black com-
munities? But we say, go out there
and fight and don't let them close
down your heartfelt belief of who
you are because some people disap-
prove," Cohen said.

left a crater 16 1/2 feet deep in front of
the building and severely damaged a
nearby police station and about 20
other buildings, Interior Ministry offi-
cials said.
Traces of explosives were found in the
wreckage, the Federal Security Service
said. The force of the blast was equivalent
to about 100 to 300 tons of TNT, it said.

At least 17 people, including two
children. were killed, and 184 others
were wounded, with 69 of them hospi-
talized, officials said.
Volgodonsk, a city of 250,000 peo-
ple, is close to the volatile North
Caucasus Mountains region, where
Russian forces have been battling
Islamic militants since early August.
Authorities have blamed the three
previous apartment explosions - one
in the southern city of Buinaksk, and
two in Moscow - on the militants.

negotiators nearing a deal

contract to the automakers Tuesday -- but not before
flexing its muscles at DaimlerChrysler. National
negotiators, including UAW President Stephen
Yokich, were meeting at DaimlerChrysler headquar-
ters when workers at five plants in Missouri and
Indiana staged a brief walkout Tuesday night.
The plants, which employ about 15,500 workers,
included the assembly lines of the company's highly
profitable Dodge Ram trucks and all the company's
minivans. Picket signs were up for about an hour
before the contract extension was announced.
Production at all five plants resumed as normal on
Wednesday.
DaimlerChrysler co-chair Bob Eaton said he
expected workers at those plants would remain on the
job as negotiations continue.
"We're still hopeful we will be able to get a contract
without significant work stoppage," Eaton said
Wednesday at the Frankfurt International Motor Show

in Frankfurt. Germanv.

Barnas said the union has not told the German-
American automaker the reason for the walkouts. Union
officials did not immediately comment. The UAW has
not called a national strike during contract negotiations
since 1976, although it has used plant-level strikes.
Experts have said a national strike, which would
threaten a boom year for the auto industry, seems
unlikely. DaimlerChrysler said Wednesday that pas-
senger car sales for the first eight months of 1999 had
set a new record, totaling S69 billion in revenues.
The UAW usually chooses one automaker to make
a deal with first, then uses that deal as a template for
other contracts. This year, Yokich has kept talks going
with both GM and DaimlerChrysler and refused to
publicly name a target.
Wages, job security, health care costs, overtime
demands and the assignment of work to outside sup-
pliers were expected to be among the top issues.

AAFD after smelling smoke and fire
detectors sounded inside the house.
"The house is in good shape,"
Rayburn said. "The exits were avail-
able, there wasn't any trash in the hall-
ways. The alarm appeared to work."
Cianciola said alternative housing is

being provided for all 36 Sigma Chi
members who live in the house.
Mountz said fire officials were not
permitting fraternity members to stay in
the house "at least tonight and possibly
through the weekend."
A cleaning crew will be hired to
repair smoke damage and reset the fire
alarms, Mountz said.
