New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - October 17, 1985, New Braunfels, Texas Chrylser reports progress in auto strike negotiations HIGHLAND PARK, Mich. (AP) -Chrysler Corp. and the United Auto Workers say they’re making progress toward an end to U.S. and Canadian strikes that already have cost the company more than $15 million and the U.S. economy $(15 million. The first crippling day of walkouts Wednesday by 70,000 workers in this country and 10,000 in Canada failed to produce a settlement, and both unions said bargaining would resume today. U.S. Chrysler officials had no comment. “There are a number of major issues that are not totally resolved but that we’ve come much closer to reaching a final resolve on,” UAW President Owen Bieber said Wednesday during a break in the talks. Bieber, his bargainers and their counterparts at Chrysler left company headquarters late Wednesday night and refused to say what issues were causing the hangups. Wages were the major issue in the Canadian strike. U.S. workers wanted curbs on Chrysler’s subcontracting of work to other companies, job security guarantees and wage and benefit parity w ith workers it General Motors Corp. and Ford Motor Co. The strikes have virtually stopped Briefly Suicide bombers attack radio station M GTU ULA, Israel (AP) -Suicide bombers with explosives strapped to their bodies attacked a radio station run by Christian missionaries in southern Lebanon early today, sources said. Three guerrillas, a lebanese militiaman and a radio station worker were reported killed. Guerrillas attacked the American-owned Voice of Hope radio, miles north of the Israeli border town of Metulla, at about 1:15 a.m., the sources said. A guard of the Israeli-backed South Lebanon Army fired at the attackers, setting off an explosion that killed the three guerrillas, a guard and a radio station worker, according an Israeli army spokesman who quoted sources in the mainly Christian militia. Sources said they regarded the attackers as suicide bombers because they were wearing the explosives in such a way that if they were shot, the explosives would ignite. Bomb explodes at television building PARIS (AP) — A bomb exploded early today in front of the French television authority hours after a controversial right-wing politician appeared on a broadcast. The leftist group Direct Action claimed responsibility. Authorities reported no injuries but serious damage in the blast outside the offices of the Audiovisual High Authority, which oversees French television. The bombing followed a TV appearance by Jean-Marie Le Pen, head of the rightist National Front. On Monday, bombs exploded in front of French government-run radio and television stations which also were broadcasting programs featuring I^e Pen. Direct Action also claimed responsibility for both of those bombings to protest Ia* Pen's appearance. Duarte's daughter may be released soon SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador (AP) - The government and leftist rebels have reached an agreement on the release of President Jose Napoleon Duarte's kidnapped daughter, and her release may be imminent, San Salvador's auxiliary archbishop said. Monsignor Gregorio Rosa Chavez said Wednesday that the agreement had been worked out by Archbishop Arturo Rivera Damas in three meetings with rebels, the last of which was held Tuesday. Inez Guadalupe Duarte Duran, 35, and a companion, 23-year-old Ana Cecilia Villeda were abducted by gunmen on Sept. IO as they arrived at a San Salvador university for a class. The kidnappers killed one bodyguard and seriously wounded another. Nation Ancient plague may have been toxic shock syndrome BOSTON (AP) - An epidemic in Athens that killed tens of thousands of people 2,400 years ago, leaving the city-state ripe for conquest, may have been a virulent combination of toxic shock syndrome and influenza, a researcher says. Dr. Alexander D. I^angmuir’s theory, outlined in today’s New England Journal of Medicine, offers one explanation for the plague that raged from 430 to 427 B.C. and fueled centuries of speculation about its cause. “It fits all the criteria, epidemiological^ and clinically, for influenza complicated by toxic shock syndrome," said I^ngmuir, former U.S. Centers for Disease Control chief epidemiologist who is now retired in Chilmark, Mass. Blast rocks ground at test site LAS VEGAS. Nev. (AP) The third underground nuclear test in a week at the Nevada Test Site was a very successful shot that caused some ground motion, the Department of Energy said. Wednesday’s test, code-named “Roquefort," had a yield of between 20 and 150 kilotons of high explosives, said DOE spokesman Jim Boyer. It follows two .smaller blasts of less than 20 kilotons on Oct. 9. On Friday, anti-nuclear activists plan to begin a monthlong protest of nuclear testing to promote a joint U.S.-Soviet testing freeze. The latest test, exploded about 1,400 feet below the surface of Yucca FTat, 83 miles northwest of I .as Vegas, was the 14th announced this year at the site and brings to 644 the number of detonations since testing began in 1951. Seaway officials say damage not known THOROLD, Ontario i AP) As shipping companies dock ships and lay off workers, St. Lawrence Seaway officials say it w ill be a week before they can estimate how long a collapsed lock will keep the waterway closed. Crews were to begin reinforcing the damaged wall today so water can be drained from the lock and chunks of fallen concrete removed, St. lawrence Seaway Authority spokesman Robert Balcomb said Wednesday. A 125-foot section of the lock’s concrete wall caved in Monday, halting traffic in both directions through the canal and idling more than 50 ships at a cost estimated between $10,000 and $20,000 per ship per day. The shipping jam comes at the beginning of what is normally the busiest week of tile year for the 2,342-mile waterway, which links the Canadian and U.S. Midwest with the Atlantic Ocean. Mexican quake benefit concert is canceled SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - A rock concert to benefit Mexican earthquake victims lias been canceled three days before it was scheduled in 40,000-seat Spartan Stadium because only 255 tickets were sold, organizers say. “A lot of people are confused right now" about why the benefit failed in a year in which Ijve Aid raised millions for African famine relief and FarmAid for struggling farmers, said Rock Relief '85 spokesman John Cotter. "Some people are saying everybody is aid-ed’ out, with live Aid and FarmAid and all that," Cottter said Wednesday. ‘‘We certainly weren’t going to see 30,000 walk up the day of the show."

Negotiators in Toronto said they would return today to resume negotiations covering 10,000 striking Canadian workers. William Fisher, chief bargainer for the subsidiary Chrysler Canada Ltd., said, ‘‘We’re pushing for a set-! lenient. It has to be settled some lime and the sooner the better." Robert White, leader of the newly lormed United Auto Workers of Canada, said he wants to get a settlement to bring to membership meetings scheduled for Sunday. ‘‘Everybody knows this weekend is critical," White said. “If we don’t have a settlement Sunday, you’re talking about taking a considerable amount of (production) time out of the system." . The UAW has scheduled a meeting Saturday of its 300-member Chrysler Council in Huntsville, Ala., where Bieber said he would like to present a tentative contract for review. ‘“Am I planning to go to Huntsville this Saturday? Well, nobody’s canceled my reservation yet, as far as I know," Bieber said Wednesday evening. The strike has halted Chrysler’s production of more than 5,000 cars and trucks a day. That is costing the U.S. economy ‘‘somewhere between $63 million and $65 million per workday," said Michael Bryan, economist with the Federal Reserve Bank in Cleveland. About 30,000 of the 70,000 U.S. strikers are in Michigan, where officials fear the strike could cause widespread layoffs in supplier industries. In Indiana, Chuck Preston, director of business and financial services for the Department of Commerce, said the strikes could soon be felt beyond that state’s 9,000 Chrysler employees. "If they stay out very long, the suppliers will feel the pinch," he said. ‘‘If they’re out for a few days, the suppliers can adjust their production. But if they’re out longer, the suppliers may have to begin layoffs. That’s where the real multiplier effect will begin to hit home.” At* At * * BKT IN GRUEN! 5HAI&, CHICKEN A BUBS!RS (W)M5-0464    I MY ANY ENTREE k GET ANOTHER Of I EQUAL OR LESSER VALUE AT * PRICE.
