But concerns over the prospect of war emerging in the aftermath of Sunday's attack on an Iranian Airbus hv U.S forces may be uncalled for. "The immediate impact I of this attack) should be minimum," said Delbert Ringquist. political science chairman. Fighting in the Pursian Gulf might escalate because of this event. Ringquist said, but people should not be concerned about a national conflict. "I would not see that this event will escalate into a war between the U.S. and Iran." said Ringquist. One reason for this may be the attitude of the Iranian people. The average person from Iran does not have a deep hatred for the United States, said Mahmnod Hahuee. assistant professor of management and :in Iranian native. "The average Iranian doesn't support Kho- meni and doesn't support a war with the U.S.," Hahaee said. There is a great misconception of Iranian' Middle East peoples by the U.S.. Bahee said.

The Police Officers Association of Michigan also reached a tentative agreement with the University Tuesday afternoon. Tubbs said she is "assuming ratification late this week." Although the CMU Staff Association and the National Association of Broadcast Employees and Technicians have not reached agreements yet. lx>th groups have signed contract extensions with the University. CMUSA President Rosie Nedry said negotiations are moving along. "Everyday gets us closer," Nedry said. Nedry didn't see the extension as a necessity. "It's not good or bad," she said. The next scheduled negotiations are July 13. 14 and 15. The broadcast union is also scheduled to meet with University officials agsin July 20. Because aa many contracts expired on the same day this year, Tubbs said the new contracts will stagger the expiration dates. "It's typical that contracts expire on July 1 since it's the end of our fiscal year," she said. So part of the contract negotiations have been in deciding on a schedule of expirations.
