(AP) — Hormel officials said Sunday that a meat- packing plant shut down by a five- month strike by 1,500 union workers would reopen today despite warnings of violence and the breakdown of negotiations. "We remain available (for further talks) but the plant will open," said Chuck Nyberg, senior vice president of Geo. A. Hormel & Co. He said the Austin-based company had "gone the last mile" in trying to resolve the bitter dispute over wages and working conditions. "We're going to have a war down here, I'm afraid," Mayor Tom Rough, himself a striking worker, said last week about the proposed reopening. "The crisis is getting near." Jim Guyette, president of Local P-9 of the United Food and Commercial Workers, said his members would picket the plant this morning. "Our struggle is a non-violent one and we want to keep it that way," he said, adding that the union would try to talk with members who planned to cross picket lines. "We intend to try to contact those people and let them know the strength of any union is its people and that crossing the picket line is not a good idea." Miles Lord, a retired federal judge and a union supporter, told about 800 striking workers and their backers at a rally Sunday that the meatpackers should not return to work today. Gov. Rudy Perpich asked company officials to delay the reopening because of the possibility of violence, but Hormel officials refused. Hormel sent letters to striking employees advising them to return to work and advertised for replacements. Extra officers will be on duty today in case of violence, said Austin Police Chief Don Hoffman. Guyette said after talks broke off Saturday that the company and union were "on a collision course." No further talks have been scheduled. Pet of the week Kansas operators announced 67 new locations, including 13 wildcats, and completed 74 tests during the past week.

Correction BUILDING COLLAPSE VICTIM — Rescue workers carry a wounded man who was buried with scores of others Sunday when four neighboring apartment buildings collapsed in a chain reaction in downtown Cairo, Egypt. At least two people were killed. Scientists fear human activity is changing Earth's atmosphere By Hie New York Times WASHINGTON — Human activity is changing the Earth's atmosphere and scientists know too little about the long-term environmental consequences, according to a draft of an international scientific report by 150 scientists from 11 countries. The report, which was coordinated by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, confirms that activities ranging from the burning of fossil fuels to emissions of chlorofluorocarbons are changing the atmosphere. The report warns that it would take centuries for the atmosphere to recover from these changes. The warming of the Earth from the greenhouse effect, which results when pollutants in the atmosphere block the escape of heat from the Earth's surface, is expected by scientists to have far-reaching social and economic consequences. They say it could turn food- producing areas into dust bowls and melt the polar ice caps, causing flooding in coastal areas. They also say that ozone depletion, by allowing harmful radiation from space to reach the Earth's surface, could increase human cancer and damage plant and animal life. The report, which is some 2,000 pages long, confirms mathematical models that have been warning for more than a decade that gases from industry and other human activity are changing the chemistry of the Earth's atmosphere. The study subjected the recent findings on changes in atmospheric chemistry to an assessment based on precise measurements taken by satellites and other monitoring devices. The report said that given the incomplete knowledge of the chemical relations among ozone, climate, and the trace gases emitted by human activities, "we should recognize that we are conducting one giant experiment on a global scale by increasing the concentrations of trace gases in the atmosphere without knowing the environmental consequences." Dr. F. Sherwood Roland, professor of chemistry at the University of California at Irvine, said he agreed with the report's contention that the continued release of gases into the atmosphere represented "a totally uncontrolled experiment with no kind of knowledge of where we are going in the end." 'Running doctor' to speak at Bethany LINDSBORG — Dr. George Sheehan, who has written five books on fitness and is known as the "running doctor," will speak at Bethany College today and Tuesday. Sheehan will talk about "Technology and the Pursuit of Health" at 7:30 p.m. today in Presser Auditorium at Bethany.

Sheehan is at Bethany as part of January's inter-term academic activities. Sheehan, 67, a New Jersey physician who is a member of the President's Council on Physical Fitness, began running in 1958, at the age of 40. Since then, he has competed regularly in marathons and other running events. When he was 50, he ran a mile in 4 minutes, 47.6 seconds, which was a world's record for his age group. Weather When he was 61, he ran the Marine Corps Marathon in 3 hours, 1 minute, 10 seconds, his best marathon time. He continues to run, averaging 30 miles a week. He is the medical editor for the Red Bank (N.J.) Register, has a column in "Runner's World" magazine and has written five books. His books are "Dr. Sheehan on Running," "Running and Being: the Total Experience," "Dr. Sheehan's Medical Advice for Runners," "This Running Life," and "How to Feel Great 24 Hours a Day.'' He is on the medical staff of a Red Bank, N.J., hospital, and is a member of the hospital's electro- cardiology and stress testing board of internal medicine.
