Utah scientists studying Yellowstone by satellite SALT LAKE CITY (AP) University of Utah researchers plan to use satellite technology in a project designed to measure subtle elevation changes on the Earth's surface. Experiments will focus on the Yellowstone National Park caldcra, a broad, craterlike basin formed by volcanic activity, says Dr. Robert Smith, professor and chairman of the department of geology and geophysics. Smith, the principal investigator in a three-year study that started in late August, said the project will measure movements in the center of the youthful volcanic and earthquake-active geologic area. Funded by the National Science Foundation, the experiment will use NAVSTAR "Global Positioning Satellites" and ground receivers to measure the uplift, expansion and contraction of the volcanic caldera. GPS is a universal positioning or navigation system that provides navigation fixes at every position on Earth through extremely accurate measurements of distances between the satellites and ground stations. Assisting with the experiment will be scientists from the National Geodetic Survey and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Smith said the Yellowstone ex UMW accused of breaking federal labor law in East ; CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) The National Labor Relations Board has accused the United Mine Workers union of violating federal labor law when it negotiated a new contract with four member companies of the Bituminous Coal Operators Association last spring, officials said today. The complaint was issued by the NLRB in response to unfair labor practice charges filed by the BCOA after the union announced it had negotiated a new agreement, called the "1987 Employment and Economic Security Pact," with Pikeville Coal Co., Beckley Coal Mining Co., Scotts Branch Coal Co. and Kanawha Coal Co. The four companies, all members of the BCOA, are managed by the Pickands Mather Co. "We will not allow separate agreements to weaken the basic integrity of the multi-employer bargaining unit," BCOA President Joseph P. Brennan said Monday. "Any similar action in the future by the UMWA will bring a swift, ; aggressive response by BCOA. We ; expect all parties to live up to the '. agreement they were signatory to ; in 1984." The pacts in question exempted the four companies from all but 25 ; cents per ton of a $1.11 per ton ; royalty paid by all BCOA com- panies into a union pension fund. '. In exchange for the break on labor ; costs, the union obtained new job security language for its members. EDS staff considering requests for Petroleum Violation funds CHEYENNE A total of 30 proposals requesting nearly $60 million from the state's Petroleum Violation Fund monies was received by the Economic Development and Stabilization Board by the Sept. 29 deadline for proposals, according to a state official. But only $3.7 million remains in the fund, which once totaled nearly $12 million. The money in the fund comes from oil and gas companies ordered to pay resititution for overcharging customers across the country. If a company could not identify the customers harmed by the overcharging, the restitution funds were returned to individual states based upon the amount of petroleum projects sold in that state during the time of the overcharging. Long autumn predicted for Wyoming LARAMIE (AP) Wyoming's warm, dry fall weather should continue until December, according to a University of Wyoming meteorologist. August Auer, a professor of atmospheric sciences, said temperatures will be from 2 to 3 degrees above normal and precipitation will be at least 20 percent below normal through October and November, particularly in mountain areas. "Accumulated snow pack in the mountains will be late and will fall in amounts 80 percent of normal, due to a dearth of major snowfall events," Auer said. "Over the prairies, precipitation values will also average significantly below normal." Wyoming's fall has been marked by unusually dry and warm weather that has created extremely high fire dangers in its forests. The National Weather Service forecast for the state Tuesday called for periment will address the kinematics (the motion aside from the volcanic force) and the dynamics of the world's largest and most active continental hot spot; an evaluation of sources of the high heat flow that drives the geysers and hot springsand the relationship between volcanic features, active earthquakes and crust deformation on surface geology. The study area includes the Ilebgen Lake fault zone, the Yellowstone volcanic caldcra and the Teton fault zone. After scientists have conducted measurements at each of 80 GPS stations established in the park, they will return to those same stations in three years to repeat the measurements and determine how much uplifting and movement has occurred. The Yellowstone region is an attractive location for such activity because it encompasses the site of the most severe recorded earthquake in the history of the Rocky Mountains a 7.5 tremor that created Quake Lake in Montana in 1959. Six other earthquakes with magnitudes of 6-pIus, as well as extensive earthquake swarms have also occurred in the area. In a related experiment, graduate students already have started measuring the precise gravitational changes in the caldera, another indicator of earth uplift or bulging. A similar agreement also was signed by the UMW and Island Creek Coal Co., but that company is not a member of the BCOA and therefore is not affected by the NLRB action. In filing unfair labor practice charges, the BCOA contended the union and the four coal companies had no right to supercede the 1984 National Bituminous Coal Wage Agreement, which all parties signed and which does not expire until Jan. 31. "This action by the federal government confirms our view that the UMWA should be compelled to honor its contractual obligations under the NBCWA until the expiration of the contract," Brennan said. "In seeking NLRB action, BCOA asked for nothing more than a recognition by the UMWA that contractual terms agreed upon between BCOA on behalf of its member companies and the UMWA must remain in force until the expiration of the contract." Brennan, in a statement issued Monday, said the complaint followed an extensive and lengthy investigation conducted by the NLRB agents of the BCOA's unfair labor practice charges. The complaint is the start of a legal process in which an administrative law judge will be asked to determine whether the union violated labor law as contended by the NLRB and the BCOA. Exxon made the largest restitution payment into the Wyoming fund, $8.9 million, as part of a $2.3 billion restitution judgment. Ed Maycumber, energy conservation specialist for the EDSB's Energy Conservation Division, said he and his staff will be reviewing and summarizing the proposals for presentation to the EDSB, and that EDSB will evaluate the proposals based on six points of consideration for suitability. Governor Mike Sullivan will then give final approval to the projects selected by the EDSB, with the entire process to be com-opleted within 60 to 90 days, Maycomber said. Maycomber said a complete list of applicants and funds requested is expected to be available to the public later this week. clear skies and continued warm temperatures reaching the high 60s and mid-70s. A marked warming of Pacific Ocean waters, a phenomenon known as "El Nino," is responsible for the warm weather, Auer said, because it created a split in the jet stream off of southern California. While one portion of the jet stream has been deflected across the northern latitudes of the western United States and Canada, a second, weaker storm track is traversing the southern plains, Auer said. "For the most part, this pattern assures a continuation of generally fair weather over Wyoming as we head into autumn," he said. By December, the effects of the 1986-87 El Nino event should disappear, leading to the return of normal temperatures and precipitation patterns across the state, Auer said. Cheney: NEH establishing history research center WASHINGTON The National Endowment for the Humanities will establish a research center to study how history is taught and learned in the nation's elementary and secondary schools, NEH Chairman Lynne Cheney says. According to an agency press release, the NEH is accepting applications from educational institutions and other qualified organizations to set up a center to collect and analyze information on history instruction in grades K through 12. The center will receive up to $500,000 per year from NEH for three years. The NEH's plan follows publication of a congressionally mandated report, authored by Cheney, on the state of humanities education in t!.c public schools that shows history and literature are not being adequately taught. CIIKNKY Rock Springs brother's fate ROCK SPRINGS (AP) A nationally televised program ab n unsolved real-life mysteries h given a Rock Springs man the answer to a 46-year-old mystery of his own. James Zelenka found through the NBC show "Unsolved Mysteries" that a man he believes was his long-lost brother Josef had died in Kansas City in 1982 and had left a $175,000 estate. Zelenka said Josef moved to Rock Springs from Yugoslavia with his parents in 1902. James arrived in Rock Springs eight years later, when he was just 12 years old. Josef was the second-oldest of five children and James, 90, is the youngest and only surviving member of the immediate family. Zelenka explained that his older brother worked in the coal mines with his father, but in 1920 he left the Rock Springs area for good. He returned several times to visit, the last time in 1931 for his father's funeral, said James. Josef could not be located in 1941 to be notified of his sister Sophie's death, and the family lost contact. "He disappeared," Zelenka said. "I knew he was in Kansas City but I couldn't get any information." And when James' daughter, Eleanor Liska, wrote to a government agency in Kansas City seeking information on the man, she was told there was no trace of him.

The show explained that the man had gone by the name George Marrich but he had kept an original birth certificate with the name Josef Zelenka and the photograph taken at his father's funeral in Rock Springs. Zelenka said he did not see the program, but when he learned of the stories from his nieces he contacted Sweetwater County authorities, who in turn got in touch with the Jackson County Sheriff's Department in Kansas City. The Jackson County Sheriff's office was inundated with telephone calls the night the program aired, Ms. Liska said, but the next day Zelenka was told he is the likely heir to the $175,000. However, Zelenka noted that the inheritance has not been verified yet, and there is a possibility that Josef had a son. If Josef's son can be located he would receive the entire inheritance. But Zelenka, a retired custodian, said having the money is less important to him than the peace of knowing what happened to his brother. "We worried about him," he said.

John McGrath, a spokesman for the NEH, said the Department of Education is looking to establish a similar program to study how to improve the teaching of literature and writing in American schools. "Evidence shows that the content of history courses in today's elementary and secondary schools is not being well presented, understood or absorbed," Cheney said. "This new history research center will help us to further understand why this is happening and to discover ways to make improvements." The center hopes to identify the most effective teaching methods, evaluate the history textbooks and supplemental materials used and study teacher-training programs. Great Pizza from top to bottom!
