By Daniel Gonzalez Staff Writer Ask Dieter Steigerwald to show you his hands, the hands of a sau- sage maker. Fingers as thick as kielbasa, as ruddy as the Polish and German sausage he has ground out day after day, for nearly four decades. "Look they are all Stei- gerwald says, waving his beefy paws in the air. "I still have 10 fin- gers." Yes, they are there, all 10. But the fingers have not escaped the sharp edge of Steigerwald's trusty butcher knife, which he even car- ried into combat in Vietnam. There are cuts everywhere, small and large. And there are scars leftover from earlier cuts. These are the injuries you can see. The sharp crook in his back is the result of years spent bent over a meat table trimming fat and bones from hocks of ham so big you could put your arms around them and not touch fingers on the other side. Although he doesn't complain, Steigerwald has four degenerative discs in his spine. The condition has gotten so bad, he was forced to close Paul's and Steigerwald's Meat Market, which he owned for 13 years. Saturday's closing of the market at 419 S. Wilbur Ave. ended a sausage-making career that stretched 39 years back all the way lo Germany. "The doctor said, one wrong move and you will end up on your face and you will never get back up Steigerwald said in his telltale German accent. SYRACUSE IS losing not one, but two West Side meat markets, and the last in the city specializing in freshly made kielbasa using age- old recipes brought over from the Old World. The Blue Ribbon Market, at 625 Otisco St., on the city's near West Side, is closing this Saturday, after more than 36 years in business. Founders Walter and Eugenia Dmytryszyn are retiring, and their son, Julian, who bought the busi- ness six years ago, wants a change. The closings of the two family- MARKETS, Page A17 Wampum to be returned to Onondaga WASHINGTON A collection of Iroquois wampum, among the most treasured objects for Native Americans, likely will be returned to the Iroquois Nation this weekend. "There is no object that is more sacred to the Iroquois than the said Doug George, a Mohawk who lives in Central New York. "It is the equivalent of the Declaration of Indepen- dence to the United States or the Bucharest to the Catholic Church." Officials at the National Museum of the American Indian said Wednesday they were preparing to transfer nearly two dozen pieces of wampum from a warehouse in the Bronx to Central New York's Onondaga Indian Nation. wcvc ucir.g cv.t, tt." likely will be repatriated in a ceremony Sunday. The Onondaga. whose remaning tribal lands are south of Syr- acuse. are the keepers of wampum for all the Iroquois nations. except the Oneida, Richard West, an Oklahoma Cheyenne and director of the museum. The wampum, made of tiny shells assembled into patterns on strings or bolts, carry messages to open meetings, begin ceremo- nies and mark other significant events in the life of the tribe. The wampum dates to the 19th century.

Kenneth Terrell British voters head to the polls The Associated Press LONDON Police scoured poll- ing centers for hidden bombs this morning over fears of an IRA at- tack before voting began in Brit- ain's national election. Polls pre- dicted an end to 18 years of Conservative government and a big victory for Tony Blair's res- tyled Labor Party. Nothing suspicious was reported at the polling centers but extra officers were to remain on duty a" dr.y to roarch ppH their bags. The increased security follows several small explosions by the IRA on the British mainland as well as phoned-in bomb threats using IRA code words. The ensu- ing chaos, intended to remind vot- ers of the IRA presence ahead of the election, severely disrupted the nation's road and rail networks. Gerry Adams, president of the Irish Republican Army's political ally Sinn Fein, was the favorite to win the Northern Ireland parlia- .v.cr.Uv.-y of Regaining the seat that he lost in 1992 to Northern Ireland's biggest Catholic party, the Social Demo- cratic and Labor Party, would boost Adams' standing internation- ally and his claim lo a place m Northern Ireland peace talks.
