that evidence will stand tall in the
appellate court too."
The case gained national attention
last year because Cashen based his
decision to give Smith custody on
Ireland's status as a student and her
decision to put Maranda in day care
while attending classes.
Ireland and her daughter reside in
Northwood Family Housing. Maranda

attends preschool in Ann Arbor three
days a week and is in University-spon-
sored day care for another 22 hours
per week while Ireland attends class,
She is taking 16 credit hours this term.
Ireland said she received thousands of
letters and hundreds of telephone calls of
support from single mothers, working
parents and students during the trial.
"I think this will be a great victory
for everyone," Ireland said. "Today
was one of the happiest days of my
life. It was just a huge weight lifted
off my shoulders that I've been carry-
ing around for a year."

Debate stalls over cancer drug listing
SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Quietly last spring, -a panel of California state-
appointed scientists unanimously concluded that one of the world's most widely
prescribed anti-cancer drugs, tamoxifen, can itself cause cancer.
This finding would normally mean that tamoxifen, which has been pre-
scribed worldwide to an estimated 3 million women with breast cancer, would
be added to the governor's list of 404 other chemicals "known to the state to
cause cancer."
But the drug has not been listed. Instead, under pressure from the drug maker and
the National Cancer Institute and after personal intervention by the governor
himself, Gov. Pete Wilson's administration has delayed a decision indefinitely.
The listing by the state of California could have major economic consequences
for the drug manufacturer and possibly a psychological impact on women taking
the drug as well.
It also comes at a time when a National Cancer Institute study is under way to
see if the drug is helpful not just in treating breast cancer but in preventing it. For
that, investigators need to enroll healthy women, and some scientists believe that
they would be scared away if the drug were flatly declared a carcinogen.
Wilson personally intervened in the case just days before the July I deadline for
adding chemicals to the list.

Groups protest auto
lemon laundering'
WASHINGTON - Daniel Garcia1
won his legal battle in 1992 to get
Chrysler Corp. to buy back his Dodge
Caravan, which dripped water into his
lap every time it rained.
But the Springfield, Va., resident was
surprised to get a call the next year from
Karen Melvin of Minneapolis. She had
purchased his 1989 Dodge Caravan,1
and it was leaking water - a problem
the dealer told her had been fixed be-
fore she bought the used car.4
"Every time I turned a corner, water
wouldpourinto my lap," Melvin saidof
driving after ahard rain. Garcia told her{
he had the car in the shop 36 days as
mechanics tried unsuccessfully to fix it.
Seven consumer groups are accusing
automakers and dealers of sometimes
passing a vehicle like Garcia's to a1
used-car buyer without fully disclosing
the vehicle's defect-known as "lemon i
laundering." The groups said often the
cars are moved across state lines to tryl
to get around a state lemon law.
Yesterday, they petitioned the Fed-
eral Trade Commission asking for a
U.N. encies force
out ,khan women
UNITED NATIONS - Under pres-1
sure from Islamic radicals, the United
Nations is cutting women from its staff
in Afghanistan. A human rights group
accused it yesterday of discrimination.
The Taliban militia objects to women
working outside fields such as health
and education, and there have been re-
ports of threats against women and of-
fices where they work, said Kevin
Kennedy, a U.N. spokesman.
Some U.N. agencies tried to let Af-
ghan women work from their homes,
"but in the long run that proved un-
workable, and in the end their contracts
were not renewed" when they expired,
Kennedy said.
Hedidn't know how many women
lost their jobs.
The head of the U.N. aid agency,
Peter Hansen, warned Taliban leaders
last month that threats against working
women could jeopardize support for
aid programs in Afghanistan.
Those programs reach some 2 mil-
lion people. U.N. agencies in Afghani-
stan include the World Food Program,
the World Health Organization and

federal enforcement program-to stop it.
"The key is full disclosure. Then in-
formed consumers can make intelligent
choices," said Jack Gillis, spokesman
for the Consumer Federation ofAmerica.
Report: Nation lags
in education goals
WASHINGTON - Five years after
the nation's governors set ambitious
goals to make American education
world class, schools have made modest
progress at best, a panel of governors
and other state lawmakers said yester-
The plan, now embroiled in politi-
cal fights, can only succeed if parents
and schools renew their efforts to
toughen academic standards, the panel
High school completion rates have
not improved since 1990, according to
a study the panel issued yesterday. Read-
ing achievement has remained flat in
grades 4 and 8 and has fallen among
high school seniors.
And a large gap still exists between
white and minority students' rates of
college enrollment and completion.
"What the U.N. has done to the fe-
male staff inAfghanistan is outrageous,"
said Surita Sandosham, executive di-
rector ofthe human rights group Equal-
ity Now.
