The lot is jammed with cars. Some motorists make improper turns and hold up traffic to drive into the station. ' "I've seen cars jump the median getting over here," said Al Gaube, the station operator. "It's really remarkable." The cars that jam the lot are expensive foreign imports. The attraction is Gaube, 35, a master mechanic with understandable pride in his work. He operates out of a two-stall service station garage, serving some of the city's wealthiest residents, including top bankers, doctors, lawyers and corporate executives. "I've had as many as 50 cars, mostly Mercedes Benz, parked on my lot at one time," said Gaube, a native of Freudenstadt, West Germany, where the popular import is manufactured. "The company I lease my station from has complained about the number of cars parked around here, saying they're blocking the entrance, but I haven't had any real problems with them." Gaube, a stocky red-haired man, whose English is understandable only when he speaks slowly, said 80 per cent of his income comes from repair work done at the station. He boasts proudly of his most recent job of restoring a 1967 Mercedes 6000. "I made $7,000 off that job. That's really not that much for the job we did. The owner could afford it. After all, he owns a couple of factories and also has two other Mercedes and a Rolls Royce." Gaube, who owns three Mercedes two collectors' items and one he drives to work believes in his work and in the German luxury automobile. "It's the best car there is," he said from beneath the hood of one. "It was made with safety in mind long before the American automobile manufacturers thought about that aspect of driving. "With regular upkeep you can drive them for a long time." Gaube arrived in the United States in 1962 after working as an apprentice and mechanic at the Mercedes factory near Freudenstadt. He went directly to Denver where he has relatives and landed jobs as a mechanic for local Mercedes dealerships.

He has moved steadily upward in the union hierarchy and has been a director for 11 years. "To me it's fundamental that the union comes first in the scheme of things," he said. "By using this code and being responsible in my dealings, I found myself being given assignments of more and more responsibility in the union. "My peers on the executive board found my qualifications for president are best. My record is one of successful leadership, while my opponent has a record of no distinction at all." Over the years, McBride has gained a reputation as a tough but fair negotiator and as a man who keeps his word. One major issue in the contest for . president is the union's Experiments Negotiating Agreement for the basic steel industry, which employs about 375,000 union members. Under the 1973 agreement, unresolved contract issues are submitted to binding arbitration rather than being settled through a strike or lockout. "We're not strike-happy," Sadlowski has said, "but no solid trade union leader would advocate the concept of this agreement." McBride defends the agreement, which, he said, for the first time permits strikes on the local level. He said the agreement is necessary to protect the industry from imported steel and from the boom-bust cycle caused by steel users stockpiling supplies near contract expiration time. "If something like this agreement had been done in industries such as watches, cameras and shoes, maybe these industries might not be virtually gone from this country," McBride said. McBride also rejected as grandstanding calls by Sadlowski to prevent vote fraud by additional federal supervision of the union's election. "It's an advance excuse for losing," he said. "His attitude reflects a lack of confidence in the local membership and local union leaders who will be conducting the election." McBride sad he was at first reluc-taint to run for president because "after 47 years of working, I was a little curious to find out what loafing is like. Once I made the decision, though, I lost no sleep over it." Like Sadlowski, he has been campaigning several days each week and appearing in as many as five cities a week. The typical day begins with shaking hands at factory gates before dawn and is followed by meetings with local union leaders and the press. It concludes with an evening rally. "I figure I've shaken 30,000 hands," he said. "I must admit I enjoy it." ST. LOUIS (UPI) - Lloyd McBride hopes his record in working through the ranks will win him the leadership of one of the world's biggest and most powerful labor unions. McBride, 60, says his opponent, dissident Edward Sadlowski, 38, lacks the experience to head the 1.4-million-member United Steelworkers Union. Sadlowski has been harshly critical of the administration of the current union president, I. W. Abel, who is returing next June. Abel has named McBride his choice as his successor. "I have focused on the real issues in this campaign," McBride said. "Sadlowski has been campaigning as much against Abel as against me. Abel is not the candidate." McBride said he is confident of winning in the election Feb. 8. Endorsements of his candidacy by union locals across the country have outnumbered endorsements of Sadlowski by better than an 8-1 ratio, he said. Nonetheless, McBride, who in the past shunned the spotlight, has been campaigning heavily. He said he needs to counteract a sophisticated public relations campaign by Sadlowski, who has received press coverage in the role of the brash young maverick challenging the old-guard leadership. "He's a showboat," McBride said of Sadlowski. "He has successfully captured the attention of the press." McBride said Sadlowski has been critical without offering anything constructive in return. "During debates in the executive board I make my views known and have strongly disagreed with certain proposals," he said. "But, I make my opposition known in the meeting. Once a decision is made, I suRport the majority. "What Sadlowski does is make his views known before the board meeting and then, when the majority doesn't agree with him, he goes to the newspapers. He's placed himself in the position of alienating the leadership of the union." McBride said making public the dissension within a union's leadership is harmful. "A union is unique in that it must present a solid front," he said. "If we're going to engage in criticizing each other, all we're going to do is bring division and lack of unity. "Unions are very controversial. Whenever a union representative starts attacking his own union, it causes great harm." McBride is director of the union's District 34, which has 38,000 members in five midwestern states. Sadlowski ousted the pro-Abel leadership in 1974 to become director of District 31, which has 130,000 members in the Chicago-Gary, Ind., area. "During the two years he's been a director he's done nothing but criticize the union with an eye on running for president," McBride said of Sadlowski. "The members of District 31 know he has not been attending to their interests." McBride began working in a St. Louis steel foundry when he was 14 and helped organize a steelworkers' local at his plant six months after the national union was founded.
