July 20, 1975 Weary Police Answer Only Emergencies · ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - tf - About 1150 police supervisors and nonstriking pa- · trolmen. exhausted from an 84-hour work -week, accepted only emergency calls Sat- [urday as federal mediators renewed efforts to end a week-long strike. ^ A police dispatcher said officers an- '.swered only major emergencies such as -assaults, burglaries and major accidents. TShe said there had been no increase in ; calls since the strike began in this city of -300.000 residents. ' The dispatcher said domestic quarrels had to work themselves out and motorists · involved in minor collisions were asked to : file reports at the police station, which · was surrounded by more than 100 picket'- ing policemen and supporters. · In surrounding Bernalillo County, sher- · iff's detectives and supervisory personnel · also were working 12 hours a day after · some 60 of 140 deputies called in sick for · the second day. ; The apparent show of support for strik- · ing city officers won approval from Sher'. iff Joe'Wilson. who told a rally for the stri- ; kers on Friday, "my men will stay sick as · long as you want them to." '. Police" Chief Bob Stover said city offi- · cers who stayed on the job "have been ' working long hours and they're tired, but 1 they seem to be holding up fairly well." · A police spokesman said 10 of the more ' than 300 strikers have returned to work. ; Strike spokesmen said five sergeants have · joined the walkout. 1 Federal mediator Lonell McGinnis ar; rived in Albuquerque on Friday after city · and strike representatives agreed to begin *, a fact-finding process outlined in the city · labor ordinance. Hometown Boy Each side will have one representative on the fact-finding board. McGinnis apparently will fill the third slot. The board is to recommend possible solutions, which are Jody Pennington, 10, stands on Sophia's main street and looks at the picture of a hometown boy who made good -- and hopes to make it better.

Another federal mediator attended gotiations earlier last week without suits. ne- re- Ceiling On Russian Grain Urged WASHINGTON (AP) - Rep. Benjamin S. Rosenthal, D-N.Y., said Saturday that the Ford administration should promptly clamp a ceiling now on wheat and grain sales to Russia. As it is, Rosenthal said in a statement, the rumors alone about pending Soviet grain purchases were enough to nudge the price of wheat upward by 25 per cent. "It's only a matter of time before this will be reflected in the price of retail bread, milk, meat and nearly every other food we eat," he said. A ceiling would discourage price speculation in the comodity markets and inflation, Rosenthal said. The Russians have about about 3.5 million tons of U.S. what at a cost of about $500 million. They are expected to buy 15 million tons all told, said Rosenthal, who is chairman of the House consumer subcommittee. In 1972 the Soviets bought 19 million tons of grain. Agriculture Secretary Earl Butz says the 1975 grain sales will have a negligible impact on U.S. food prices.

It was a dollars-and-cents revolt against an unfair economic situation. People were fed up... with the Stamp Act, with the Tea Act, with all the unnecessarily high prices. So they did something about it. That was the true beginning of the American Revolution. It was only later that the intellectuals, philosophers, and soldiers got into the act. The Revolution of 1776 really began as a pocketbook revolt in 1775. Lowe's salutes the Spirit of 75 .'.. and it appears that history is repeating itself. Today, stamps are more expensive than ever, tea and other food items are at an all-time high, and people are beginning to do something about it. They're being more demanding in the products they buy and the prices they pay. If you agree that part of the Spirit of 1975 is a quest for lower prices and better values, Lowe's is with you. We don't sell stamps or tea bags, but we do sell over 7,500 other items lots of people need at prices they like. Just look at Lowe's Spirit of '75 prices!
