KAREN HASTINGS and MIKE NORMAN Mar-Telegram Writers When Candle Ridge homeowners purchased homes in far southwest Fort Worth some years back they were told the northeast corner of Kingwood Drive and Hu len Street would he developed as a shopping center Nothing too much maybe a dry cluaners a convenience store and some doctors' offices would be included The seven-aere lot bounded on two sides by streets and on two sides by expensive duplexes is one of few zoned "F-commereial" in CandleRidge Homeowners say they need a neighborhood shopping center there But the lot was sold and last month new owners asked the city Plan Commission to approve plans to build a 172-unit apartment complex on the site The proposal was pulled off the commission's agenda planning by allowing developers to circumvent planning decisions on how' the city should grow But developers and builders say cumulative zoning allows them the flexibility to respond to changing land-use needs As the city's first major rewrite of its residential zoning ordinance nears completion "cumulative zoning" has emerged as the last major issue Please see Zoning on Page 2 Under the city's current ordinance zones range from residential through cotnmercial to Industrial "Cumulative zoning" prohibits developers from constructing a commercial building in a residential zone But it allows them to build homes in a less

leader Sunday urged Tex as Union members to celebrate Labor Day by campaigning to replace President Reagan's supporters in Congress and in Austin "For a worker to vote for Reagan would be like a chicken voting for Co loncl Sanders" said AFL-CIO President Lane Kirkland who saw a large portion of his members cast ballots for the president in 1980 "I don't believe the people always do the right thing but the strength and the greatness of a democracy is that they get to correct their mistakes cvery couple of years" Kirkland said Speaking at a dinner attended by most a the major Democratic candidates for statewide office Kirkland characterized Novembers election as "a contest between raw money and people between money and issues" He attacked the Labor Day message of Reagan who said his administration had aided workers by cutting their taxes "The president does not explain By KARA ROGGE starTelegram Vriter SAN ANTONIO The United Farm Workers Union is ready to push for collective bargaining in Texas a drive that probably will lead to major strikes in South Texas union President Cesar Chavez said Sunday "We are today ready" Chavez said "We have a stronger organization in Texas than we did in California when we started the strikes" that eventually won collective bargaining rights for farm workers in that state Chavez made the statements at a news conference after a speech at a Latin American Council for Labor Advancement fund-raiser Ile was among a number of national and international union presidents in San Antonio this weekend for the AFL-CIO's major Labor Day celebration Farm workers were not included in the 1936 National Labor Relations Act that granted federal protection to labor unions in organizing and how his tax cuts benefit nearly 11 million workers who pay no taxes because they have no income thanks to his deliberate use of high unemployment as a tool of his program to restore economic royalism in American life" he said Kirkland said each percentage point of unemployment costs the nation $300 billion in national production "yet he (Reagan) accepts 10 percent unemployment and attacks government waste" Kirkland was in San Antonio with other national union leaders to participate in a major two-day Labor Day celebration On Monday morning he will deliver a Labor Day address during the dedication of a statue of Samuel Gompers American Federation of Labor founder in front of the San Antonio Convention Center Gompers considered the father of the modern American labor movement died in San Antonio in 1924 on his way back from an

about 13 million and are growing rapidly Hours later the Reagan administration issued a statement condemning the plan as "most unwelcome" "We cannot understand why at a time when broader participation in the peace process is both critical and possible Israel has elected to extend a pattern of activity which erodes the confidence of all and most particularly the inhabitants of West Bank and Gaza for a just and fairly negotiated outcome to the peace process" Reagan's statement said The statement was issued in Santa Barbara Calif where the president is on vacation On Wednesday in a televised speech and in messages to Mideast leaders Reagan had suggested that the West Bank and Gaza eventually should be granted self-rule "in association with Jordan" and had also asked IsraJ to freeze the spread of bargaining contracts Without a compensat ing state law giving agricultural workers bargaining rights "in fact there is no union here" Chavez told state labor leaders attending the LACLA brunch The UFW will support collective bargaining legislation during the 1983 session of the Texas Legislature that is similar to legislation adopted seven years ago in California he said Although Chavez's union has been active in South Texas since 1966 until now he has opposed colle-ctive bargaining for farm workers in the state because he said they weren't ready for it His opposition to collective bar gaining in Texas led in part to the formation in 1975 of the competing Texas Farm Workers Union The rival union directed by former UFW loyalists has sponsored sporadic daylong strikesand lobbied the Legislature for collective bargaining in 1977 1979 and 1981 Please see Union on Page 2 with Jordan had been based in part on Israel's fears that an fully sovereign Palestinian state in the West Bank

Services The Israeli government Sunday defied President Reagan's call for a freeze on Jewish settlements in occupied Arab territory and allocated $185 million to build three settlements in the West Bank and announced approval to build seven others The action coincided with the release of the text of a firm letter from Israeli Prime Minister Menachein Begin to Reagan in which Begin warned that US proposals for the 'occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip would lead to a Palestinian state and "a Soviet base in the heart of the Middle East" This Begin contended "would endanger our very existence" He chided Reagan: "A friend does not weaken his friend an ally does not put his ally in jeopardy' The 10 new settlements approved Sunday will bring to 109 the number of such townships in the West Bank
