Car haulers strike
WASHINGTON - More than
22,000 Teamsters union truck
drivers struck in a contract dispute
yesterday, halting delivery of new
cars and trucks to automobile
dealerships nationwide.
Union officials said they do not
expect a quick settlement, and no
negotiations were scheduled with
the National Automobile Transpor-
ters, which represents the 35 com-
panies that employ the Teamsters
A prolonged strike by the
truckers who haul thousands of
vehicles to showrooms each day
could clog factory storage lots
and cripple domestic auto produc-
tion, industry officials said. But
layoffs were not expected at the
early stage of the strike because
automakers currently are involved
in the 1986 model year changeovers
with many of the plants already
shut down and auto workers on
their summer vacations.

Subcommittee backs
Michigan wilderness
terior subcommittee yesterday
endorsed a bill to declare 92,000
acres in Michigan as wilderness
areas after sponsor Dale Kildee
amended it to answer objections it
would infringe on property rights.
The public lands subcommittee
approved the bill on a voice vote
with only Rep. Michael Strang, R-
Colo., objecting. The bill now goes
to the full committee. It would
create 11 wilderness areas, 10 in
the Upper Peninsula.
The 3,000-acre Nordhouse Dunes
area in the Manistee National
Forest, the only site in the Lower
Peninsula, was the major item of
debate. Republicans said a wilder-
ness designation could make it dif-
ficult for Gerald Derks, the holder
of mineral rights, to utilize those

"The newspaper gave an adequate

THE NEIGHBORS also argue that
the sorority should not be allowed to

has spent money on hiring an ar-
