AI2 SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 3, 1996 NATION THE SALINA JOURNAL T GM STRIKE GM pact too late to halt plant closings Union leader hints at possibility of additional strikes at GM plants By The Associated Press DETROIT — The tentative labor contract reached early Saturday between General Motors Corp. and the United Auto Workers averted a national strike but came too late to halt the momentum of plant closings triggered by local strikes. A parts shortage caused by the strike over, local issues at GM's metal-stamping plant in Indianapolis already has led to shut- clowns of four of GM's high-profit V EDUCATION truck assembly plants. Additional shutdowns are expected this week if the automaker cannot reach a settlement there. A second local-issue strike shut down GM's truck plant in Janesville, Wis. And UAW President Stephen Yokich hinted at the possibility of other strikes among GM's 123 UAW locals. "We can't tell you what's going to happen at any other locals," he said at a news conference Saturday. "I would suggest that the company work very hard and get their locals cleaned up." GM Chairman Jack Smith Jr. said the company would focus on ending the walkouts by negotiat- ing local supplemental contracts quickly. "Obviously, we're putting the absolute top priority on addressing the issues at Indianapolis and Janesville," he said. "It's important to get those operations back to work and building high quality cars and trucks." The national agreement, covering 215,000 GM workers, came at 1:30 a.m. after four months of negotiations and a final 17-hour session. Details were not released. The UAW said its national bargaining committee endorsed the pact unanimously. It next goes to the UAW- GM council of local presidents for approval Wednesday before going to members for ratification. GM already was struggling to catch up from last month's three- week strike by the Canadian Auto Workers union, which shut down its plants in Canada and led to slowdowns and closures of dozens of parts and assembly plants in the United States and Mexico. Fifteen of those plants remained at least partially idled this weekend. County Commission 3rd District Help Destroy DISINTEREST For someone who listens... A different type of candidate Pol. Adv. paid lor by Culley for Commissioner Committee, Ramty Lamer, Chairman, JudyLabbe, Treasurer Woman confesses to cheating in 1962 By The Associated Press EUGENE, Ore. — Through 34 years as a teacher and therapist, the guilt always gnawed at Linda Russell. "In the back of my mind, I always thought, 'If you only knew.'" So last fall, Russell called the University of Oregon and confessed: She had cheated on a crucial exam she needed to get her degree. "I realized that one day I would have to stand before God and ac- count for my life," said Russell, now 56, retired and living in Washington state. Elaine Greene, associated dean of students who handles cheating cases, said this isn't the first time an ex-student has made such a confession, but never before has anyone waited so long. There is no statute of limitation on cheating offenses at the university, but Greene said revoking Russell's degree would be too harsh. Instead, she will write an article for the student newspaper about the importance of academic integrity, focusing on the corrosive effect of dishonesty. "Once you cheat, then you have to cover it with a lie," Russell said. "In that process, you deceive all the people into thinking you are someone you are not." Russell's dilemma occurred in her senior year, 1962, when a history professor handed her a final exam and told her to go finish it. She slipped into the women's lounge, pulled out her notes, and passed the test.
