Your Personal Finance- The Tow Truck- Succor or Socker .. By RICHARD P. PRATT The modern automobile will carry you through rain, sleet, snow and gloom of night, asking little but oil in the engine and gas in the tank.

At that point you are probably going to need the services of a tow truck. In one way, seeking a tow is like buying any other service. You call a garage, request assistance and pay tlhe resulting charge. But psychologically, it's a lot different from, say, hiring a man to paint your porch. if you're stranded out on s*m* lonely road, perhaps with a car full of tired kids, you're apt to view a tow-truck operator more as an angel of mercy than as just another businessman. Hu man nature being wfaat it is however, some operators are not above socking it to you because of your plight. Your best defense is to be aware of possible problems an< to be ready to nip potential over charges in the bud: Do Your Need a Tow?—If ffw problem is something like , busted fan belt or a bent fende that rubs against a tire, yoL don't need a tow. What you ne« is some first aid that will ge you rolling again. If you realiz this, describe the problem on the I phone. The driver can the i bring equipment with him and make repairs on the spot. Check on Charges—Before Hi* driver hooks up, ask about rates. They should be based on a hoisting fee, plus so much per mile. You won't be in much of a position to bargain, of course, but you will look like less of a patsy if you display an interest early. Ask Where Car Is Goinf- Sounds obvious, right?

Towed cars have been known to arrive at shops bearing more dents than they had when they were towed away. Some are caused by carelessness, others by design. Watch Hit Tt«hniqut--Fe«t towing with the front wheels elevated is hard on the car with an automatic transmission. Most trucks carry dolUea to put under the rear wheels of the towed car. t is also possible fc> disconect the car's drive shaft, but this is not an easy job. Hoisting the oar's rear wheels and towing it >ackward is suitable for short hauls at low speed. It will ease the pain of towing slightly if you know that part of the charge will be paid by someone else. Most auto clubs offer road service as a benefit of membership, but the cheapest coverage is apt to be a simple addition to your auto insurance policy. On a recent evenlnf , In fft« suburb of Verdun, a newsman met with sit young sympathizers of the FLQ. In a basement flat. In a soundproof lavatory. None would admit membership in the separatist organization but all admitted allegiance. Here are notebook jottings minus profanity, on what they Mid: "We are here because we believe the laws of Canada do not apply to the people of Quebec ... I would like to run a knife into (Canadian Prime Minister) Pierre Trudeau ... We will win ... I have a B.S. degree and work parttime in an office where I must speak English: if I speak French, my mother tongue, I will be fired ... Did you read today's papers? There anarchist tradition: action precedes thought; new words are built on the corpses of old; slaughter for "justice" is just. "If a government official is killed," said one, cutting his fingernails with a scissors, "it isn't murder. It's part of the war against the big fat cats." This war, according to Canadian '^'ory, has been waged for ct jries. The idea of an independent, French-dominated Quebec dates from 1759 when the British defeated the French and made Canada part of the empire. Talk dominated the battle until the 1960s. Then, with the help of Charles de Gaulle's call for "free Quebec," the terrorist activity began to swell well beyond the nuisance category. Now, a Royal Canadian Mounted Police report estimates there are 22 active FLQ cells in the province, with 130 active members and 2,000 others who, like the youths in the Verdun washroom, are active supporters. Interestingly, only about 500 are students; 150 are sity of Montreal, believes them to "be: "Very well organized. Some of them may be in it for the hell of it. but most of them seem to believe in what they're doing. They call themselves 'White Negroes.' they say they is no one in the world who ignores the FLQ now ... We will win ... We have 22 million supporters in the U.S. —• Negroes ... 1 learned how to rig a bomb five years ago . .. Palestine, Cuba, South America, Vietnam, people like us are everywhere. . Send in your troops.

They were of the said to be taxi drivers and the rest probably school dropouts or workers. As a whole, the RCMP says, they earn money by robbing banks; they build an arsenal by stealing (over 9,000 dynamite sticks so far in 1970); they learn their tactics from Palestinian or U.S. counterparts. They official, "a „ „ asses," but he is quite wrong. Asses, maybe. But ragtag, no. Dr. Maurice Torrelli, a political scientist from the Univer- will die for their cause. They shy away from drugs, they maintain close ties with their families. In short, they seem a very solid group." And unfortunately for Canadian serenity, Ihey seem a very successful group. "What Vjo we want?" grins one student reporter. "We want to disrupt the economy, panic the government and force recognition of our demands. Well, we've done it. Half of Canada is looking for us. The Royal Air Force is using photo jets in the search. The premier of Quebec is being hissed out of office. All business is down. The newspapers and TV are full of nothing but FLQ news. We have already succeeded, and the people of Quebec are out shouting our praise. The quote is fairly acorate — except for the last phrase. The FLQ has not gained public support. According to polls, nine of every 10 citizens want them stamped out.
