6 -MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 14,1987 Hungary, Israel resume low-level diplomatic ties .THE UKIAH DAILY JOURNAL JERUSALEM (AP) — Hungary resumed low-level diplomatic ties with Isrttel today after a 20-year break. Israeli officials said they hoped it foreshadows improved relations with the Kremlin and other Soviet bloc countries. "This is another move forward towards normalization of relations between Israel and a whole group of nations with whom we are interested in maintaining normal relations," said Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir. Every Soviet bloc country but Romania severed diplomatic ties with Israel after the 1967 Middle East War to protest Israel's seizure of Arab lands. Last October, Poland became the first Eastern bloc country to renew low-level ties with Israel. The accord between Israel and Hungary, signed today in Bern, Switzerland, sets up economic interest sections. It follows two years of negotiations. The accord was concluded "with the intention of promoting economic, commercial, cultural and human relations and in order to facilitate consular matters between the two countries," according to a joint statement. Israeli officials indicated some disappointment that Hungary decided to open an interest section instead of permitting a full renewal of relations. WHAT HAVE YOU GOT TO (L LOSE THAT WEIGHT!

Dole to resign transportation post Will quit Oct. 1 to join husband's campaign WASHINGTON (AP) — Transportation Secretary Elizabeth Dole told President Reagan today she plans to resign at the end of the month to join the presidential campaign of her husband, Sen. Bob Dole. After meeting with the president, Mrs. Dole said her first task in the campaign would be a 12-state tour to attract votes in the South and to open a regional campaign office in Charlotte, N.C., in preparation for a series of southe'm primaries. Mrs. Dole, who has been transportation secretary for 4Vi years, longer than any of her predecessors, said she would leave her Cabinet post Oct. 1. "I want to be a major part of the campaign and do everything I can to be helpful," Mrs. Dole said. Her husband, a Kansas Republican, called her "probably one of the greatest resources in my campaign" and said her "strength and popularity" will be of great help in his bid for the presidential nomination. Dole is expected to formally announce his campaign for the presidency next month. Mrs. Dole, while transportation secretary, has spent much of her free time on the campaign circuit. Last month she reportedly spent 21 days outside Washington, often in slates with key primaries. She said her campaign appearances were on her private time, including vacation. She did not disclose details of her meeting with Reagan, saying only that she discussed a variety of transportation issues. l 'We talked about (transportation) safety, he thanked me and he told me he was sad that I'm leaving," Mrs. Dole told reporters outside the White House. White House spokesman Marlin Fitzwater said earlier that Mrs. Dole telephoned Reagan about 7 p:m. Sunday and asked for the meeting. .

Mich. TAP") — cial secretary of Local 551 at Ford's Owen Bieber. Vice President Ste- talking about would only I DEARBORN, Mich. (AP) — Negotiators for 104,000 workers and Ford Motor Co. bargained today against a midnight strike deadline, with the union and company agreeing that the talks had "a long way to go." In Canada, meanwhile, Canadian Auto Workers union President Bob White said a strike by about 10,000 workers against Chrysler Corp. is inevitable at midnight tonight. Workers at the United Auto Workers' 53 local Ford unions across the United States are prepared to walk out at midnight if the deadline passes with no word of a settlement. Picket signs have been printed and strike duty rosters have been prepared. A strike would be the company's first in 11 ydars. "Everybody's in suspense right now," said Cleveland Ware, finan- cial secretary of Local 551 at Ford's Taurus-Sable assembly plant in Chicago. The talks have focused on the union's demand for greater job security and the company's demands for more flexible work rules and the right to buy parts from outside companies and produce vehicles in other countries for sale in the United States. The company has said repeatedly it needs to retain flexibility to compete in the emerging global auto industry. The union wants its first real wage increase since 1984 and a Sweetening of the profit-sharing formula, which paid Ford workers an average three-year total of $5,300. The base wage for. a Ford assembly worker is $12.83 an hour. Most talks on major issues have taken place in the "small committee," consisting of UAW President Owen Bieber, Vice President Stephen Yokich, Ford Vice President Peter Pestillo, company Labor Relations Director Stanley Surma and top assistants to both sides. "The bigger problem areas are still being discussed and we still have a long way to go before we can reach a settlement," Surma said. He and Pestillo said talks would continue around the clock if necessary. However, the talks recessed at 520 a.m. this morning and were to resume at 8 a.m., said union spokesman Frank Joyce, Who would not say if any progress was made. Bieber met Sunday evening with the UAW's executive board after telling reporters that Ford hadn't come across with job protection the union has demanded. "The job guarantees that we're talking about would only be a burden to Ford on the assumption that Ford plans to take a lot of work out of their U.S. plants.," he said. If the two sides do not reach a settlement by the deadline and union leaders call a walkout, it will be the first strike at Ford since 1976, when workers stayed off the job for 28 days over issues including a demand for more paid lime off. The UAW has a $686 million strike fund, which pays workers $100 a week. This year, it may have to provide for workers at Ford and at General Motors Corp. GM's contract also expires at midnight, but has been extended until a settlement is reached at Ford. Ford, the world's most profitable automaker, earned $3.3 billion in 1986 and $2.9 billion in the first half of 1987. The last count put Ford's cash reserves at about $9.1 billion. Guadalcanal joins U.S. gulf tanker convoy ABOARD THE USS GUADALCANAL, IN THE PERSIAN GULF (AP) —The helicopter carrier Guadalcanal linked up with a convoy of reflagged Kuwaiti tankers early today to conduct minesweeping operations as the ships headed out of the Persian Gulf. The«l 8,000-ton helicopter carrier and other warships of the escort group went to General Quarters, the highest state of alert, as they approached waters where Iranian speedboats have attacked commercial shipping. Two of the RH-530 Sea Stallion minesweeepers from the Guadalcanal flew ahead of the convoy, scanning the waters. They were towing cables fitted with explosive cutters to break the tethers of moored mines, which Iran is believed to have dropped in some shipping channels of the waterway. Captain "Skip" Dirren, the Guadalcanal's 43-year-old commander, told members of a Pentagon news media pool aboard the ship that the United States knows there are mines in the gulf and knows where they are.

The Sea Stallion helicopters on Sunday were operating for the third day with sonar detectors that can find not only the contact type but other, more sophisticated types of mines — those triggered by sound, water pressure or magnetic detection while resting on the seabed. News reports have recently suggested that Libya, which was widely suspected of being responsible for a major mine scare in the Red Sea and Gulf of Suez in 1984, may have supplied Iran with the more sophisticated devices. Dirren was asked whether the United States knew there were mines in the Persian Gulf and knew where they were. The Virginia Beach, Va., man answered "yes" to both qucstioas. "I can't tell you where," he added, citing security reasons. Dirren said the Navy had not turned up any mines because the primary mission of the Sea Stallions and other mine-hunting equipment was to guarantee safe passage of the tanker convoys, which meant they had not gone into areas where mines were believed to be. Today's outbound group, the eighth one-way convoy since President Reagan began his program of rcflagging Kuwaiti tankers, included the petroleum products carriers Surf City, 81,283 tons, and the Chesapeake City, 79,000 tons.
