Stevens took on the entire labor movement .. when it chostits lawless path to labor relations," he declared in a speech prepared (or t h e m e r g e r t o d a y o f t h e Amalgamated Clothing Workers of America and the Textile Workers Union of America. The merger of the two unions, representing a combined strength of trmt thin 200.000 worim Ui the U«- lilt and mrn'i appjrel jnduitriM. consummated a year of negotiations Formal approval of the merger was voted earlier this week at s e p a r a t e c o n v e n t i o n s of each organiulion. At the same time, their leaders prepared plans for a new drive to organize clothing and textile workers In the South and Southwest. The initial target will be J. P. Stevens, a firm Meany labeled "the No. 1 lawbreaker in the country." For 13 years, the textile workers h»vr tlempt*d wtlh little success to organize Steveru' 45.000 workers. In resisting the union's efforts, the company has been found guilty of labor law violations In IS cases. Meany noted that the AFL-CIO executive council voted last month "to take whatever action is necessary" to support the merged union in its organizing campaign at Stevens, including a nationwide consumer boycott expected to begin late this summer. The new union will be known as the Amalgamated Clothing and Textile Workers Union. FVGC future is positive By MARY PICKET! Inter Lake SUH Writer Flathead Valley Community College will have to tighten its belt next school term because of the special mill levy's defeat, but college officials remain optimistic about the school's future. In a close election last week, Flathead County voters turned down the levy -- which would have raised $160,000 for FVCC - by a vote of 2,530 to 2,073. Commenting on how the college will bear the results of the election, Robert Lopp, FVCC Board of Trustee chairman, said "A $160,000 loss always has an effect, but a serious, long-term effect, no. "We did lose the mill levy, but it's the best we've done compared to previous levy elections. Our community support is growing, the _ number of students coming through 'our doors is growing and the economic impact of the students on the community is increasing.' "The administration and the board, will have to take a close look at next year's program as they have already in establishing the budget for next year, however the future of the college Is positive," Lopp said. Because of the 35 per cent local and 65 per cent state funding ration community colleges are locked into, "the attitude of the legislature toward post secondary education will be a critical factor in the future of FVCC," Lopp said. This summer, the college will be drawing up its 1977-78 biennial budget which will be submitted to the Board of Regents, the governor and finally the legislature for approval. Programs cut this year will be resubmitted in the next biennial budget, Lopp said. FVCC President Don Lindahl said he still was studying possible cuts in the 1976-77 budget necessitated by the levy defeat. "There will be no -.r '.«.-.,- -*»»'.- V » :;*-l «·.-·,, «,(» c.1 -ic*vt«t.

Photo by Msry Pickert Hays stepping down in wake of scandal WlSHIMiTO.N ( A t 1 ) - R e p Wiyr* Hj; i stepped dovm today as chairrrur: of the House Democratic t'on£tcsiorul Campaign Committee urili! ihc investigation of his role in a payroll-ttx scandal is completed Hays said h* was relinquishing control of the commiltec to avoid putting "an unnecessary 1 and unwar- r a n t e d b u r d e n o n m y f e l l o w Democralic candidates." The congressman said he is confident he will be vindicated. But the Ohio Democrat said he did not want "to have my name on a clwk which might be used as a campaign issue against any Democratic candidate." The committee dist r i b u t e s c a m p a i g n f u n d s t o Democratic congressional candidates around the country. Stepping down marks the (irst serious blow to Hays' leadership position since a woman charged that he put her on his House Administra- tion Committee payroll to be his mistress In making his announcement, Kays also said, "I nave also decided to call a meeting of the Committee on House Administration to discuss with them any questions concerning my role as chairman of the House Administration Committee." He accepted DO questions from reporters. He said he will call a meeting of the campaign committee next Wednesday (or the election of a temporary chairman to replace him. "Although the charge against me has yet to be substantiated by credible evidence, I am confident that when all the facts are presented at the proper time and in the proper forum, it will be obvious that the charge against me will be shown to be false," Hays said. further professional staff cuts," Lindahl said, adding any staff reductions will be done in the area of part- time instructors. He said he would present his budget recommendations Tuesday night d u r i n g a regular board meeting. On June 28, a final public hearing will be held.on the budget, before it is submitted to the county commissioners and the superintendent of schools, he said. Lopp said any cuts won't affect the overall quality of education at FVCC. "Cuts will be made where it will hurt the student the least. FVCC will continue to offer the best possible program for the dollar," he said. Notice Of Reward Citizen* of Kalispell W A N T TO HELP CURB VANDALISM? Here's How: 1.
