'U' fails to meet union demands

Forty years ago this week
Employees Union failed to find
common ground in aseries of non-
economic demands included in
overall contract proposals.
The GEO proposals called for an
agency shop, class size limits and
affirmative action proposals, all
of which the University refused.
The University counter-proposal
also changed several provisions in
the GEO's proposal that the union
defined as non-negotiable.
"In the first place, they made
no response to a number of our
proposals," union spokesman
David Gordon said following
the bargaining session the night

before. "And secondly, what
they came back with was fairly
University administrators
maintained at the time that
acquiescingto many of GEO's non-
economic demands "would have
shut the Universitydown."

Presidential candidate Walter
Mondale came to the University to

Friends, family of Ebola
patient reach milestoneU



Quarantine ends for
those in contact with
U.S. native who died
from the disease
FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) -
As her boyfriend Thomas Eric
Duncan lay dying of Ebola in a
Dallas hospital bed, Louise Troh
battled loneliness and fear that
she too had contracted the dis-
ease while confined to a strang-
er's home under armed guard.
Troh's confinement was ending
Sunday night, along with several
friends, family and others who had
contact with Duncan after he first
became infectious. Ebola has a
21-day incubation period, and the
people who interacted with Dun-
can after he first arrived in Dallas
from Liberia will be in the clear.
It's an important milestone
in the nation's efforts to contain
the outbreak and a cause for cel-
ebration for Troh. After three long

weeks, she will be able to have a
clean bill of health, leave the house
and be done withtwice-dailytem-
perature readings by government
health care workers. She likened
the period to being a prisoner.
"I want to breathe, I want to
really grieve, I want privacy with
my family," Troh told The Asso-
ciated Press on Friday, lamenting
that she was missing Duncan's
memorial service at his mother's
church in North Carolina because
of the quarantine. Troh says she
and Duncan planned to get mar-
ried later in the week.
Duncan arrived in Dallas from
Liberia in late September and
went to the hospital complaining
of headache and stomach pain.
He was sent home with a pre-
scription for antibiotics to treat a
misdiagnosed sinus infection. He
returned two days later, was diag-
nosed with Ebola and died Oct. 8.
The day Duncan tested posi-
tive for Ebola, Troh, her 13-year-
old son, Duncan's nephew and
a family friend were ordered by

a Dallas court to stay inside the
apartment among Duncan's used
linens and any lingering virus.
The unusual confinement order
was imposed after the, family
failed to comply with a request
not to leave the apartment, Dallas
County Judge Clay Jenkins said.
The four were later taken to an
undisclosed gated community.
Jenkins and Troh's pastor
George Mason delivered the news
of Duncan's death to her during
the confinement period.
The other people who will have
their quarantine period end at
midnight include Youngor Jallah,
Troh's daughter, a nurse's assistant
who checked Duncan's vital signs
before calling for an ambulance.
For nearly three weeks, Jallah
has not left the cramped, second-
story apartment she shares with
her partner, Aaron Yah, their
three children, ages 2, 4 and 6, and
Yah's 10-year-old son.
Unlike Troh, Jallah is not pre-
vented from leaving by an armed
guard, but Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention officials
have come by daily to check every-
one's temperature.
"I'm tellingyou, just to step out-
side will be so great. To hug my
mom and grieve for Eric, not over
the phone like we've been doing
but in the flesh," Jallah said.
Mason said he is coordinat-
ing efforts with the city, county
and philanthropic community to
help Troh and the f amily recov-
er. Because of the Ebola infec-
tion risk, crews stripped Troh's
apartment down to the carpeting,
saving only a few personal docu-
ments, photographs and a Bible.
"They were left with nothing.
They are completely devastatedby
this, so there's need to have their
lives rebuilt," Mason said.
Troh plans to partially recover
financially with a book written
about her life, from growing up
in Liberia, meeting Duncan in
a refugee camp in Ivory Coast,
Duncan's years-long quest to
come to America to be reunited
with his girlfriend and their
19-year-old son, and his death in
an isolationward.

Former President Bill Clinton, right, speaks as fellow Democrat U.S. Sen. Mark Pryor listens at a political rally in Hot
Springs, Ark., Friday, Oct. 17.
Bill Clinton visits Arkansas
to boost Democratic vote

Former president
campaigns for
candidates in several
contested races
Former President Bill Clinton
swept through a second Arkan-
sas campaign swing in as many
weeks Sunday, hoping to keep
Democrats in power at home and
in the U.S. Senate.
Clinton returned to Pine
Bluff, seeking the same political
successes he had here in 2000
and 2002. Late-in-the-campaign
rallies with predominantly black
crowds helped put Mike Ross in
the U.S. House and Mark Pryor
in the U.S. Senate then, and both
candidates need Clinton's help
"They assume you will show
up for a presidential election but
won't show up" for a midterm,
Clinton said. He cited polls that
he said showed that while black
people comprise 16 percent of
Arkansas' population, the GOP
expects blacks to make up just 11
percent of voters this year.
With andunpopular Demo-
cratic president in the White
House, Arkansas Republicans
have made unprecedented gains

since 2010. The GOP now con-
trols the state Legislature and
five of six seats in the U.S. House
and Senate.
"It's game time," said Pryor,
the lone Democrat whom Ar-
kansans send to Washington. "It
doesn't amount to a hill of beans
if we don't get out and vote."
Early voting begins Monday.
Ross is seeking the governor's
office against a former congress-
man who prosecuted Clinton's
impeachment and who has lost
three statewide races. Pryor is
seeking a third term and his con-
test with Rep. Tom Cotton is key
to control of the U.S. Senate.
Cotton's campaign said the
race is about the current presi-
dent, not a former one.
"We're not bothered by Presi-
dent Clinton's support for Mark
Pryor. We're bothered by Mark
Pryor's support for President
Obama, whom he has voted with
93 percent of the time," Cotton
spokesman David Ray said.
Clinton also campaigned Sun-
day for his former director of the
Federal Emergency Manage-
ment Agency, James Lee Witt,
and other statewide Democratic
candidates. Witt is running to
replace Cotton, a Republican
giving up a south Arkansas U.S.
House seat to challenge Pryor.
"You haven't had a congress-
man since I. left," said Ross,

who left the House in 2012. He
criticized Cotton for launching
a Senate campaign months after
entering Congress
Clinton didn't build the Dem-
ocratic PartyinArkansas buthas
been its figurehead since inherit-
ing the mantle from former U.S.
senators David Pryor and Dale
Bumpers. He spent much of Sun-
day's speech telling Arkansas
stories, and pointing out people
in the crowd, rather than pulling
out his presidential credentials.
David Pryor served two terms
as governor and is the current
senator's father. Bumpers, an-
other ex-governor, delivered a
passionate defense of Clinton at
the ex-president's impeachment
trial in 1999 - a case prosecuted
by then-Rep. Asa Hutchinson,
Ross' opponent this year. The
Republican-led House voted to
impeach Clinton but the Senate
acquitted him.
"This election is about the fu-
ture, and Asa's plan gives hope
for the future and will motivate
people to vote," Hutchinson
spokesman J.R. Davis said after
the Democratic rally.
Ross was a state legislator]
and a former driver for Clin-
ton's political campaigns when,
in 2000, he challenged Rep. Jay
Dickey, R-Ark., who had voted
for two articles of impeachment
against the president.
