PITTSBURGH (AP) — Contract negotiations between Wheeling-Pittsburgh Steel Corp. and the United Steelworkers union broke off Saturday evening, setting the stage for a midnight walkout that would be the first against a major steelmaker in 26 years.
“As of 12:01 a.m. we will be involved in a work stoppage against Wheeling-Pittsburgh Steel,” said Paul Rusen, chief negotiator for approximately 8,200 current employees and about 10,000 pensioners of the nation's seventh largest steelmaker.
There was no movement in face-to-face negotiations between the two sides Saturday, the first formal bargaining in more than a month.
“I’d say they’re both pretty much hard-nosed,” said federal mediator Robert Householder.
The two sides are split over the size of wage, benefit and work rule concessions that should be granted to Wheeling-Pittsburgh, which is reorganizing under Chapter ll of the federal Bankruptcy Act.
Earlier, U.S. District Judge Glen Mencer, hearing arguments at his home in Smethport, rejected a union request to reinstate the union contract immediately, but asked both sides to submit legal briefs by Aug. 12.
After a federal bankruptcy court judge’s ruling, giving the company permission to abrogate its union contract, the company said it would impose new work rules and cut total pay and benefits for its 8,200 current workers by 18 percent, or nearly $4 an hour.
“Hopefully, it (a strike) will not last long,” said Paul Rusen of the Steelworkers, chief negotiator for the approximately 18,000 active and retired Wheeling-
“I am extremely disillusioned,” Rusen said after the morning round. “We offered to work on a day-to-day basis under the existing contract and they turned that down in writing. ... I think there’s going to be a strike tonight.”
JOHANNESBURG, South Africa (AP) — President P.W. Botha Saturday declared the first state of emergency in South Africa in 25 years, giving police broad new powers in 36 cities and towns to combat mounting anti-apartheid rioting.
The state of emergency, which begins today comes after IO months of violence that has killed more than 450 blacks. It empowers police to make arrests without warrants, impose curfews, seize property and limit press coverage in unrest areas Police reported new clashes in black townships late Friday and early Saturday , with one black shot dead by police and another killed by a crowd.
At a funeral for four blacks in Duduza, east of Johannesburg, a mob stoned and beat to death a black woman suspected of being a police informer, witnesses said Then the mob piled grass and tw igs on the body and set it afire, an act that has become almost a ritual in crowd killings of suspected “collaborators .’’
“This state of affairs can no longer be tolerated,” Botha said of the growing unrest in an address on national radio and television Saturday night “I wish to issue a warning that strict action will be taken against those persons and institutions that cause or propagate disruption ”
These acts of violence and thuggery are mainly directed at the property and person of law-abiding black people, and take the form of incitement, arson, inhuman forms of assault arid even murder," he said the last emergency declaration in South Africa was March 1960. when unrest followed the police shootings of 69 black protesters at Sharpeville. south of Johannesburg Police arrested 11.503 people during that 156-day emergency
Anti-apartheid organizations immediately condemned Botha's action, saving the turmoil would end only
African president declares major state of emergency
through dialogue toward equal rights for blacks, not harsh police action.
The nation’s two largest business and industry groups also criticized the step, saying, “Security action alone will not resolve the serious conflict in the black townships. Real negotiations ... are the key to a return to an orderly South Africa.”
The emergency covers the cities of Johannesburg and Port Elizabeth as well as smaller towns, most of them near Johannesburg and in the eastern Cape Province, scene of some of the worst recent rioting.
Many of the nation's leading anti-apartheid campaigners Saturday were in Cradock, an eastern Cape town also covered by the declaration, for the funeral of four prominent black activists slain last month.
• The government wants to hide something. They are in a state of panic,” Stone Sizani, a leader of the United Democratic Front alliance, told the 30,000 mourners. “The whole eastern Cape is in flames, comrades. The state will not stop us from declaring our own state of emergency.”
The funeral was for Matthew Gomwe, 38, a school teacher and Cradock leader who had been engaged in a ll2-year confrontation with the government. His mysterious slaying made him a martyr in the blacks’ resistance to white rule and apartheid, the racial segregation system by which white rule is imposed.
The stabbed and burned bodies of Gomwe and three other activists were found after they disappeared June 27.
Botha announced the emergency at a news conference Saturday morning for South African journalists, in a statement not for publication until he spoke to the nation. The law restricts the declaration to one year. Botha said he could extend it to other towns if needed

Reagan 's back, but tests will follow
WASHINGTON ( AF I - A week after his cancer surgery, President Reagan returns to the White House with high hopes he’s cancer free but with instructions to undergo frequent tests to ensure that any recurrence is quickly caught and treated.
Cancer experts say Reagan is more likely than someone w ho has never had a cancerous tumor to develop the disease in the future.
Still, his doctors say he has at least a 50 percent chance of avoiding any new problems. And he can't really do much, if anything, to keep it from starting anew anyway, they say.
All he can do is wait, hope and — most important — subject himself to frequent tests
Although still feeling occasional abdominal pain, Reagan is described by aides as continuing to make a very strong recovery from last Saturday’s surgery, in which doctors removed two feet of his colon as well as surrounding tissue.
He will be regaining full strength only gradually over the coming weeks. However, the only public concession to his condition was an announcement that he would be w orking out of the family residence in the White House

Reagan's physicians have said there’s no reason he can’t resume the fairly active life the 74-year-old president had been leading — including the horseback riding and brush-clearing he enjoys at his California ranch.
Reagan won’t be taking drugs or undergoing radiation treatment, therapies that specialists said have not been shown to be effective in decreasing chances of recurrence of cancer of the colon.
His main chore will be to willingly undergo regular batteries of sometimes unpleasant tests to check for spread or a new cancer.
Those tests range from monthly blood tests and laboratory analyses of his feces to X-rays and computerized scans of his vital organs. These will be less frequent than the blood tests.
And in six months he will have his second colonoscopy, an examination of his large intestine with a long, flexible instrument that uses fiber optics technology to allow doctors to see inside his bowel.
