I do everything 1 legally can to protect life and property. If anything happens it will not be because of our (law enforcement) actions." Supervisor Jack W. SchmUz said Bass Lake residents are disappointed in the law enforcement they have been getting. He said enforcement has been permissive and results in "mollycoddling" Hells Angels. Wirtz Urges New Green Card Laws By Leo Re.nnert McClatchy newspapers staff writer WASHINGTON-Labor Secretary Willard Wirtz has urged immediate enactment of a "new and simpler" regulation to bar Mexican "green card" holders from strike-bound farms in California and other Southwestern states.

But "this is not a time to give up, it is a time to fight harder" 'or equality, said George Meany, president of the 13.5 nillion-member labor federa- :ion. Meany, in reports to a civil rights organization and the AFL-CIO magazine, The Feder- ationist, said high unemployment or deadend jobs for Negroes are a major cause of the nation's social disorder. To Convention Meany's message to the con vention of the National Associa tion for the Advancement of Colored People in Atlantic City, N.J., also said that Negro gains in education, housing and other areas have been "laggard everywhere.' The delay in making Negro equality a reality is dishearlen- ng "but to be disheartened is B52s Set Off Giant VC Munitions Dump SAIGON (UPI) - U.S. B52 bombers today destroyed a nearby Viet Cong ammunition dump so big that it was still exploding six minutes after the Stratofortresses left. In dontown Saigon, 13 miles away, the earth trembled from the dump explosions. U.S. Intelligence sources said the bombing timely.

The United Farm Workers Organizing Committee (UFWOC), AFL-CIO, contends this wording permits them to show up after awhile at a struck farm without risking deportation proceedings. Under'Wirtz's proposed regulation, the Justice Department would close this loophole. Clark has promised to tighten enforcement of INS regulations but so far has not indicated he is prepared to direct , t h e agency to change its rales. In his letter to Clark, Wirlz made it clear the Labor Department and INS are in sub stantial disagreement over how to handle the problem -- with the department more inclined force.

The alert sent GIs to their posts in five of Saigon's eight precincts, whole blocks of the areas already rubbled by Viet Cong-North Vietnamese attacks in February and May. A military source said pos sibly "several hundred tons" of guerrilla .arms to be used against Saigon were destroyed in the B52 strikes southeast of Saigon. The eight-engine jets struck an area that has served as the major springboard for Communist assaults against the capital. In other developments: --In the weekend's sole major battle, Viet Cong units ambushed a South Vietnam army about 60 miles northeast of here.

"Of course the progress of school.integration has been dis- ;racefully slow. Of course the evils of slum housing remain, and the twin escape hatches that have been opened this year --open housing in principle and more housing in fact--are narrowed by the weight of prejudice. Of course the goal of equal employment opportunity' has been tarnished by those who seek to frustrate it," Meany said. "Shall we for these reasons despair of America? We say no. We say that the answer is not to burn but to build," he said. "We in the AFL-CIO have never sought to minimize our own problems in this respect. Discrimination persisted in many local unions despite its vi- ;orous repudiation by every national union," Meany said. Soon Eliminated "It has not been entirely exterminated yet. But svithr the aid of the federal law we fought so aard to enact, the few remaining abuses will soon be eliminated," he said. The Federationist report said that despite i m p r o v e m e n t through federal and private programs, Negro unemployment rates still indicate widespread discrimination in employment. "Law or no law, it is simply impossible to look at the employment experience of Negroes --at the amount of unemployment and underemployment, and at the occupations in which they are employed and the income they earn--without concluding that, even after allow ance is made for all other factors, one of the major problems is that equal opportunity is more often a policy than a practice," it said.
