Owners end dispute,
season to start soon
CHICAGO (AP)—Baseball is back!
Owners accepted the players’ back-to
work offer Sunday, never even taking a lock
out vote that would have prevented real
major leaguers from reporting to spring train
“It was not a surrender, the players were
on strike,” acting commissioner Bud Selig
said. “They made an unconditional offer to
come back, and we accepted that offer.
“It feels good to talk about the season
starting, talking about baseball. We are back
and will open April 26. It’s not anything I
want to go through again.”
Among those happy that the longest labor
dispute in sports history was over was Presi
dent Clinton. He took time from a round of
— golf in Little Rock, Ark., to cheer baseball’s
return and urge both sides to make a long
“Today’s decision is good news for the
—game of baseball, its fans and the local econo
mies of the cities where baseball is played,”
Clinton said. “While I am heartened to know
this season will start with major league play
ers, there are a number of underlying issues
which still need to get resolved.”
Under the tentative agreement, players
could report to training camp Wednesday
and would have to be there by Friday. Each
team would play 144 games, 18 fewer than
the original schedule. That would result in
the cancellation of the season’s first 252
games, raising the total wiped out by the
strike to 921 since lasLAugust.
“The clubs hope that the 1995 season—
including the postseason—will be played
without interruption,” Selig said. “We hope
our fans never again have to go through die
heartache we’ve endured the last eight
Reached at his home in Rye Brook, N. Y.,
union head Don Fehr said the owners’ deci
sion was a “step in the right direction.
“If they had voted for a lockout, it would
have been a clear indication they didn’t want
peace—at any price,” he said.
Still to be resolved in the back-to-work
agreement were matters such as dates for re
offering contracts, salary arbitration filing
and similar areas. Lawyers for both sides
were in contact throughout the day.
Asked when contract negotiations would
resume, Fehr said he expected to be con
tacted by Selig after the meeting.
Six Islamic extremists
killed in Gaza explosion
GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) — Islamic
extremists preparing a bomb set off a blast
Sunday that ripped through their hideout, kill
ing six people, including a militant leader who
was high on Israel’s most-wanted list.
Police found seven unexploded bombs, an
automatic rifle, grenades and a plastic bag with
55 pounds of poisonous powder in the second
floor apartment in a crowded residential neigh
borhood, said Brig. Gen. Ghazi Jabali, head of
PLO police in Gaza City. > *
A police bomb expert walked from the apart
ment clutching three canisters studded with
nails, used to enhance a blast’s killing power.
“They were preparing an explosive when
one bomb blew up,” Jabali said. “This shows
that those in the apartment had a total disregard
for the lives of those living around them.”
The Hamas fundamentalist group’s military
wing, Izzedine al-Qassam, denied its members
had.been preparing explosives and, in a leaflet,
accused Israel and the PLO of being behind the
The underground group acknowledged that
one of its leaders, Kamal Ismail Hafez Kahil,
was killed in the blast. He was wanted by both
Israel and the Palestinian self-rule government;
Israeli media said he had been near the top of
Israel’s most-wanted list.
Kahil, 32, was a suspect in the 1993 killing of
Lt. Col. Meir Mintz, the highest-ranking Israeli
killed during Israel’s occupation of Gaza, which
ended last year under an Israeli-PLO treaty.
Hamas opposes the peace treaty and has
carried out recent suicide bomb attacks in Israel
trying to derail it.

Aftershocks shake Japan
- TOKYO (AP)—Two aftershocks rattled northwestern Japan on Sunday, the day after

to seek refuge in shelters.
No injuries or damage were reported in the aftershocks.
Saturday’s quake injured 39 people and damaged 504 buildings and houses, said
police spokesman Tokuji Komagata in Niigata, 160 miles northwest of Tokyo.
Sunday’s first aftershock had a magnitude-of 5.2, the Central Meteorological Agency
said. The second, eight hours later, had a magnitude of 4.2.
The agency said the aftershocks, like Saturday’s quake, were centered in northern

No progress in GM strike
PONTIAC, Mich. (AP)—General Motors Corp. and autoworkers ended a second day
of talks Sunday without settling a strike that has halted production of hot-selling pickups.
Negotiations were to resume Monday morning between GM and the Auto Workers
About 5,500 workers at GM’s Pontiac East truck plant walked out Friday morning in
a dispute over claims of labor shortages and a lack of job security.
Negotiators made some progress Saturday, but didn’t advance much in five hours
Sunday, said Jim Abare, spokesman for UAW Local 594.
GM spokeswoman Sherrie Childers would not comment on the talks Sunday.
The union wants die company to create jobs at the plant for 1,500 workers whose
positions were eliminated when GM closed its Pontiac West truck assembly plant in
