State's chicken producers c<
CHARLOTTE (AP) -- Chicken producers, bugged
by widespread reports of salmonella contamination,
continue to seek ways to get rid of the pesky bacteria
in chickens before birds hit grocery store shelves.
The Southeastern Poultry and Egg Association
/ ^announced this week a $90,200 grant to N.C. State
University in Raleigh to study ways to reduce harmful
bacteria, including salmonella, in broilers. The trade
group, which will spend $1.5 million this year on
research, also announced granted totaling $49,000 for
salmonella-related rescarche at Cornell University
and the University of Arkansas. The announcements
came lsfsl Thursday at the N.C. Poultry Federation's
annual meeting in Raleigh.
North Carolina ranks fourth in the nation in broiler
production, with sales last year of $669 million,
accounting for more than half of the state's SI.3
billion poultry industry.
Salmonella poisoning can cause fever, diarrhea and
vomiting within 12 to 36 hours after eating. The
bacteria can be found in about 37 percent of the
chickens sold to consumers, the U.S. Department of
Agriculture saad in February.

JOHANNESBURG, South Africa -- The black
miners' union asked the biggest South African mining
* company Monday to keep police out of mine
compounds as a step toward curbing violence during
the nationwide strike.

About 240 strikcrs*havc been injured and 200

Anglo American s invitation, conferred for more than
three hours Monday with company executives on ways
to reduce violence.
No agreement was reached, and the talks were
The meeting came hours after the collapse of a
planned strike by another black union against
SASOL, the state-run coal, oil and gas company. The
Chemical Workers Industrial Union, which had hoped
15,000 members would strike early Monday,
abandoned its plans after a clash Sunday between
strike supporters and opponents in which at least one
worker was killed and two injured.
According to the union, SASOL organized groups of
workers attr coal mine to attack: strike supporters: The

Chemical union, leaders had called for a strike at
SASOL's mines and coal-to-oil plants in Secunda, 68
miles east of Johannesburg, to press a demand for
paid holidays on May 1, International Workers Day,
and June 16, anniversary of the 1976 riots in the black
township of Soweto.
The union said it believed two men were killed at a
Secunda coal mine. SASOL spokesman Jan Krynauw
said one man -- a non-union member - was killed and
two union members were injured.
He said virtually all workers at Secunda worked as
usual on Monday.
Thlks on violence in the mine strike were proposed

strike and the one allowing greatest access to union

After the session, Ramaphosa said the union was"
prepared to accept Anglo American's proposals if the
company agreed to union suggestions.
Anglo American has proposed that both sides avoid ..
the use of force, allow normal access to workers', ..
hostels and mine shafts and agree not to interfere with peaceful
picketing or with employees continuing to
work. .. . 2
The union, in addition to demanding restraints on. ,
deployment of security forces at the mines, said ap-;.,
independefti arbitrator should be chosen to settle
alleged breaches of any agreement that is reached. It
said injured miners should be compensated and mines.:
should be opened to journalists.
Ramaphosa showed reporters a rifle magazine, ,>

Labor experts from universities who make up the. .

335,000 miners are striking. The union puts the
number at 340,000.
Statement issued by the owners' Chamber of Mines *.
put the figure at about 230,000 and said a "significant^
number" of strikers returned to work Monday, but I
gave no new figure.
Again without giving figures, the company^roup
described as ^grossly inflated" an estimate by the^
Labor Monitoring Group that the strike has cost the v;
three worst:hTt gold mihlT companies about-$45

The monitoring group says me 30percent across-*
the-board pay increase demanded by the union would
cost gold mining companies about $75 million a yeaf
above their current offer of 17 to 23 percent increases
for gold miners. The group said the difference"'
between the union's demand and management's offer represents
nine days of lost profits. Union
spokesmen say miners earn an average of
$170 a month, but the Chamber of Mines says the .
figure is $285.
The chamber said Monday that 104 striking-,
members of the miners' union had been locked out at,,
the Nuclear Fuel Corp. plant near Johannesburg after (*
a deadlock in wage negotiations.
It said the lockout was imposed because of' management
