(Staff Photo) Workers Return To Jobs LA PAZ, Dolivia (DPI) -Leftist-led workers returned to their jobs throughout Bolivia Wednesday ending a 10-day-old strike with revolt overtones in which 70 persons were killed and 250 wounded. The Bolivian Workers Cen- Iral (COB) called off its antigovernment general strike the nation's t i n mines and factories on the basis of an agreement with the military junta negotiated by university faculty members and non - Communist union leaders. Striking tin miners agreed to evacuate the properties they seized earlier in the week the promise the junta would rc- 1 troops to (heir barracks. There was some delay in evac- uation of mines in Oruro Department (province), however, and the army said it would keep troops in the field until miners abandoned the premises. * * * A government decision to withhold pay from strikers for the days they were out caused some discontent among those returning to work. The j u n t a had previously announced it would penalize strike leaders. The junta blamed the strike on the National Revolutionary Movement (MNR) and Christian Democrat parlies as well as (he Communists. Several political and trade union leaders were reported to have sought political asylum in Latin American embassies here.
