THURSDAY, MARCH 7, 1968 T U C S O N D A I L Y C I T I Z E N Pima Residential Building Rose Sharply Last Month Residential building in Pima County last month accelerated sharply with single and multiple family dwellings registering significant gains, permit statistics from the county zoning inspector show. Single residence dwelling units jumped to 111 for February compared to 52 during the same period last year. Estimated cost of construction totaled $2,467,703. Building permits for industry show an increase in estimated cost to $27,000 for three new industries from last year's $5,000 for two; Two-family buildings during February doubled last year's total of (wo and registered an increase from $15,000 to $30,000. Despite these gains, because of the poor showing in January, totals for the year are lagging behind: $5,3 million compared to $7.1 million in 1967. Farm Unionist To Halt Fasting DELANO, Calif. (UPI) -Weakened farm union leader. Cesar Chavez, heeding the pleas of. doctors, has decided to end his fast in its 25th day next Sunday after a "Mass of Thanksgiving." Chavez, 41, head of the United Farm Workers organizing committee, has been drinking only water since starting the fast 21 days ago. Purpose of the fast that began Feb. 14 was to rededicate himself and his followers to nonviolence in itheir efforts to organize farm workers. PAGE 17 Latest Walkout By Teachers Closes Washington Schools " By Associated Press Public schools in Washington, D.C., were ordered closed today because of a 'teachers walkout as liie nation's capital became the latest city to feel the effects of the current wave of teacher unrest. Elsewhere strikes continued in Florida and Pittsburgh, Pa., while teachers in Oklahoma and Manchester, N.H., prepared to bring sanctions against that state and city after holding successful one-day holidays. Schools Supt. William R. Manning said he ordered the Wash- ington schools closed because almost half the system's 7,000 teachers requested leave for the day. The teachers, members of the Washington teachers' union, plan a public demonstration to urge Congress to approve a pending bill 'that would raise starting salaries from the present $5,880 to $7,000. Some parents in Pittsburgh said they would move in court to have schools closed on the ground they 'have been made unsafe by the strike by 1,000 of the city's 3,000 teachers. Forty - one of the striking teachers were arrested and fined $25 each Wednesday for picketing. They were among hundreds who walked the lines outside city schools in violation of a court order against picketing. . The Pittsburgh Federation of Teachers struck last Thursday in a demand for a colleotive bargaining election -- an election which the school board con- ntends it cannot legally sanction. In Florida an official of the huge Dade County Classroom Teachers Association told a meeting of 3,500 Miami teachers that he believed the 13-day-old walkout would be settled Friday. But Pat Tornillo, executive ·secretary of the group, gave no reason for his optimism. About one-fourth of the state's 60,000 teachers remained out of the classroom. Gov. Claude Kirk has until midnight to at); on a $329 million education spending and taxing package or t«. allow it to become law without his signature. Oklahoma's 27,000 teachers, buoyed by a one-day "emergency convention" and admonitions from their leaders, prepared to bring national sanctions against the state for the second time in four years' Gov. Dewey Bartlett and legislative leaders urged 16,000 teachers who attended the meeting Wednesday to accept a compromise school financing plan now in the legislature. Instead the teachers began mapping plans for sanctions and possibly a teachers strike. They labeled "inadequate" the plan to provide a $1,300 salary in- crease over three years. Average teacher salary is $6,180 annually. More than 500 of Manchester's 600 teachers took part in a one - day walkout Wednesday. They returned to the classroom today but voted sanctions to prevent r e c r u i t m e n t of new teachers in their demand for higher pay. The scale now runs from $5,200 to $7,700 annually and the Manchester Teachers Association is seeking a scale of $5,600 to $8,900. They have rejected an offer of $5,400 to $8,400.
