8 -THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 17, W7 .THE UKIAH DAILY JOURNAL Biden admits plagiarism Sen. Joseph Blden WASHINGTON (AP) — Democratic presidential hopeful Joseph Biden admitted today that he committed plagiarism in his first year in law school, but decried the current controversy over his failure to credit others for puts of his campaign speeches as "frankly ludicrous." The'Delaware senator released his law school records, saying "I did a very stupid thing 23 years ago," but had expunged the wrong by retaking the course. Biden also admitted several mistakes in failing to credit others for parts of his rhetoric in recent speeches. He said he did not know that one section of a California Speech in February used a quote from Robert Kennedy without credit. It was my mistake," he said. Biden said he will continue to use rhetoric from British Labor Party Leader Neil Kinnock—which he was criticized for using without attribution — and said a dispute over where he got those quotes was just "a matter of extra exuberance." The chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee said "it is no coincidence" that this controversy broke out as he began to chair the intense hearing on President Reagan's nomination of Judge Robert Bork for the Supreme Court. His comments followed reports by The Washington Post and CBS News that he was accused of plagiarism while a first-year student at Syracuse University's law school in the 1960s. Senate restricts 'Star Wars' tests WASHINGTON (AP) — The Senate voted 58-38 today to restrict tests of President Reagan's "Star Wars" system to make sure the trials comply with the 1972 Anti- Ballistic Missile treaty. The vote, which went generally along party lines, was the first major decision as the Senate writes a Pentagon, budget bill for the fiscal year starting Oct. 1. It settled a fight that had touched off a Republican filibuster and kept the bill off the Senate floor for the past four months. The decision was on a motion to table, and thus kill, a proposal stripping the restrictions out of the bill, meaning they remained part of the legislation. A similar prohibition is contained in a companion bill passed earlier this year by House. Settlement nears in UAW labor talks FRES H NEW LOOKS FOR 25% All draperies Supreme rayon/acetate.

(AP) — Intensive bargaining for a contract for 104,000 Ford Motor Co. workers continued today after both sides said they had nearly settled despite the hospitalization of union President Owen Bieber. Ford and the United Auto Workers union had kept Bieber's absence from the talks secret for nearly 24 hours after he was hospitalized Tuesday night for stomach pains and fatigue. Top negotiators had worked for nearly a week without a full night's rest except for Monday night, when Bieber granted Ford an indefinite extension of its contract past the 11:59 p.m. expiration. It was the first time in the union's history it had granted such an extension to its strike target, or the company it had selected to settle with first to create a pattern for other contracts..
