UAW Strike Deadlines Set At 10 Plants DETROIT (UPI)—The United Auto Workers yesterday set strike deadlines of next Tuesday and Wednesday for 10 General Motors Corp. plants in four states where local contracts remain unsettled. UAW Vice President Leonard Woodcock, director of the GM department, said agreements have been reached by 52 of the UAW's 168 bargaining units at GM. The industry giant and the union reached agreement on a three - year national contract Dec. 15. About 65,000 workers are involved at the 10 plants in Michigan, Ohio, Indiana and New York, Woodcock said. "The international union has urged the locals to intensify their negotiations and we hope the corporation takes similar action with their own representatives," Woodcock said. Woodcock said the strikes would come after five working days at the affected plants- Tuesday where the plants work on Saturday and Wednesday where Saturday is a day off. The national GM agreemen brought to a close the half year of bargaining between the UAW and the Big Three of the industry. With the agreements at GM, Ford Motor Co. and Chrysler Corp., the nation's 674,800 auto production workers got pay and benefit increases amounting to $1.02 an hour over the next three years. Bargaining continued yesterday between the UAW and American Motors Corp., the smallest of the major auto producers. Negotiators went into session yesterday morning for what was expected to be an all-day meeting under a news blackout. The union's notification tha strikes had been authorized in five working days at the 10 GM plants unless settlements are reached at that level came in a meeting between Woodcock and his assistants with GM officials. On This Day January 11, 1968 By ESTEY I. REED On this day in 1893, Judge Roy Bean had to view 10 dead and injured workers from the Pecos (Texas) high bridge. That didn't bother Bean, who was accustomed to acting as coroner. Officiating as coroner, at $5 per person, had become his favorite judicial chore. Top timbers of the structure gave away and 10 carpenters plunged 300 feet to rocks below. Seven were killed instantly. The other three were so badly injured that no hope was held for them. Bean journeyed to the scene on mule- back. The 10 men had been laid in a row before he arrived. One by one, Bean pronounced them all dead, ". . . by them big timbers falling on him." Even the three injured were pronounced dead, because "... I'm not going to ride 30 miles on a sore- backed mule again to hold another inquest." The last of the injured men died three days after having been declared legally dead. Remember! YOUR PROMISE TO Rusk Proud of Avoiding Atom War ior 7 Years in 't'BUC REPUBLIC By JOHN M. fflGHTOWER WASHINGTON (AP) - Secretary of State Dean Rusk says one of his most constant problems and proudest achievements during seven years as director of U.S. foreign policy has been to help prevent the world from blundering into nuclear war. Projecting his past experiences into the future, Rusk estimates that the United 244-5231 9«-4S« PHOENIX SCOTTSDALE 94) W. Camelback 230 Western Pk Or States, the Soviet Union and other powers have about 5 to 10 years to establish controls over nuclear weapons and probably 20 to 30 years to master the population explosion. He sees these as the two most critical issues of the predictable future. Failure to solve either problem in time, Rusk asserted in an interview, may mean man will yet set off a war he can't control and will vanish in a nuclear holocaust. One of the most urgent needs, Rusk said, is for a treaty to block the spread of nuclear weapons. "The problem of proliferation," he declared, "is the chance that some idiot will get hold of these weapon*. The chances go up geometrically with the spread of the weapons." Rusk sees the war in Vietnam as making an important contribution to what he calls "organizing a peace" in the world and he argues that "If we can deal successfully with this type of aggression—wars of liberation—I think we may well look forward to a considerable period of peace over the years ahead. "I think the causes of war have diminished in variety," he continued, noting that religious wars and wars between ruling European dynasties are conflicts of the past, "But the years ahead are going to be tough and will require a great deal of cool headedness, not only by us but by others, too," Referring to the advent of the Democratic administration in 1961, Rusk said, "I get deep satisfication from the fact that we have added seven years to the time in which nuclear bomb has not been dropped in anger. We have achieved this in spite of a number of crises—in spite of Berlin, Vietnam, the Cuban missile confrontation. "Anyone sitting in this chair, or in the President's chair, must be fully aware that keeping the nuclear genie in the tottle is a pri- mary objective of our policy." 4* Rusk said he believes the > Soviet leaders see the requirements of nuclear age diplonv- j£ acy about the same way. ^ "You have to find ways of ^ avoiding total confrontation % so you can build all sorts of w contacts and confidence between nations," he said. "I ' think the Russians understand this, just as we do. They are -• not fools." We Bought Out Famous Factory's 1967 Models For This SAVE 115.95 174 REG. 619.95 14.92 Per Mo.
