(AP Wirephoto) 70 Pet. of Britain's Trade Traffic Halted bv Dock Strike © ,A T . Y. Times Service LONDON-tt) -Britain's national dock strike left more than 600 ships idled by Saturday and brought about 70 per cent of the nation's import-export traffic to a standstill. The massive work stoppage, in its second day, appeared like- y to continue for at least another week. Food shortages could force emergency government action, including the use of troops to move essential supplies. The nation's 42,000 dockers talked out Friday in support of demands for more job security and higher severance pay in a port industry where modern :ontainer h a n d l i n g methods lave cut down the labor force. A joint management-labor I committee meets Monday to try to work out a new formula on jobs and pay. Even if it sue ceeds, unions are not scheduled to decide until Thursday whether the progress is sufficient to call off the strike. The government is known to have readied plans for the declaration of a state of emergency to head off an economic crisis for this island nation that lives by foreign trade. Much of the country's food supplies are imported. Despite government warnings against panic buying, there were signs ihat housewives had begun loarding food in weekend buying sprees. Retail food chain stores reported there were generally enough fruit and vegetable sup- plies on hand for thi* week. They said meat shortages could develop if the strike last longer. "It's busy, but we haven't seen anyone filling out car trunks," one chain store executive said of Saturday's shopping. Fine Fare, another food chain, said store managers have been advised to start rationing sugar to two pounds a person if bigger buying waves develop. Sainsbury's, also a major food chain, said it was keeping a running count on stocks in 200 stores. In addition to the food problem, a prolonged dock strike would seriously damage the na- ion's economy by strangling export earnings and putting more downward pressure on the already weak pound sterling.
