more jobs
for service
Automation may change the work-
place, but fears that it will eliminate
thousands of jobs are unjustified, a
federal labor department official said
yesterday at the Michigan League.
While increased skills may become
necessary with some technological ad-
vances, many jobs will still require
little education, said Neal Rosenthal,
chief of the labor department's oc-
cupational outlook division.
"EMPLOYMENT in most oc-
cupations is going to grow despite
automation," he said. "There is still
going to be a need for truck drivers and
Rosenthal spoke last night to 100 par-
ticipants in the "World Congress on the
Human Aspects of Automation,"
kicking off a four-day conference
hosted by the University. The event is
sponsored by the Society of Manufac-
turing Engineers (SME), an inter-
national organization with more than
70,000 members from 60 countries.
Citing projections from the Oc-
cupational Outlook Handhook, which
his department produces, Rosenthal
said the 1990's will bring 17.5 million
more jobs, half of which will be in ser-
vice areas.
Service jobs include janitorial work,
food service workers, and nurses'
ALTHOUGH most of the growth will
be in service jobs, positions in
education and high technology will be
growing at a faster rate, Rosenthal
Of the twenty fastest growing oc-
cupations, five are related to com-
puters, showing "the great effect that
technology has on fast growth," he
Rosenthal cautioned against fears
that unskilled workers may become ob-
solete saying that technology and

Demonstrators march with their signs at a rally sponsored by the Community United Against Anti-Gay Violence last
Saturday in front of the Federal Building on the corner of Fifth and Liberty Streets.
G ri ac kers rally
against anti-gay violence

"1983 will be seen as the year of the queer," said a
speaker at last Saturday's gay rally which drew nearly
80 people to the Federal Building on Liberty Street and
Fifth Avenue.
The rally was sponsored by the Community United
Against Anti-Gay Violence to protest an incident at a
Lesbian/Gay Pride Week rally June 25, when a man was
arrested by Ann Arbor police for threatening a group of
gays with a shotgun.
IN SATURDAY'S RALLY, Donovan Mack, leader of a
local gay group, came to the microphone with a paper
bag over his head, representing the "straight" masks
gays are forced to hide behind.
"What's a self-respecting queer to do?" Mack said.
"You have sex, you get AIDS. You put on an apron and

go to work, you get fired. If you come out to the world,
some cuckoo points a gun at you."
Referring to the local incidents of mistreatment and
misunderstanding of gays, Mack said, "it is plain to see
that Ann Arbor is not yet used to (gays) asking for equal
HE ALSO SAID GAYS are not taken seriously enough
when they ask for equal treatment. "It is great to get media
coverage, but we are looked at like we are troubled
kids," he said.
At the rally, participants chanted in unison slogans
ranging from the serious "Come together, celebrate, no
more violence, no more hate," to the enthusiastic, "1-3-
5-9 lesbian- re mighty fine."
Many of .ne demonstrators wore cut-off jeans and t-
shirts, but there were also businessmen in suits and ties.

Fleetwood Diner hosts
benefit to raise money

Friends of the Fleetwood Diner, Ann
Arbor's greasiest greasy spoon, are
holding a benefit Saturday to help bail
out the financially-strapped restaurant.
The legendary Fleetwood, located on
the corner of South Ashley and Liberty,
closed and filed for bankruptcy last
May because of unpaid taxes. It reop-
ened in early June under Chapter 11 of
the federal bankruptcy laws, which
give the diner six months to reorganize
and propose a method for repaying its
SATURDAY'S gala affair will kick
off at the diner itself, with a dinner of
burgers and champagne "just for the
anomaly of it," said Leslie DePietro, a
faithful Fleetwood patron and one of the
event's organizers.
After dinner, benefit participants will

travel down Main Street to Boards and
Billiards, where they will see the film
The evening will cost $25
for Friends of the Fleetwood, and $50
for Fleetwood Patrons.
DEPIETRO, WHO calls herself a
"friend of the Fleetwood," says she
"didn't want to see them go under."
"At the Fleetwood, you can rub
shoulders with professors on one hand,
and with Hell's Angel's on the other,"
she said.
Kaye Dumsick, the Fleetwood's
owner, also hopes to schedule a fall
benefit at Joe's Star Lounge on North
Main, DePietro said.
Reservations are necessary to attend
the benefit.
