j jOggkslwg Bef^^ Monday,July 16, 1973 *Japan to U. S.: Improve Management of Economy '" TOKYO (UPI) ~ Secretary of State William Rogers sought Japanese cooperation today in solving world oil, currency and trade problems. But Foreign Minister Masayoshi Ohira in turn told the United States to do a better job "of managing its own economy. The two men spoke at the opening of the ninth American-Japanese joint economic committee, a two-day cabinet level discussion ending Tuesday. ROGERS ALSO asked Japan to assume "a greater -share of the responsibility for the promotion of peace and (ability in Asia," but noted Japan's constitution forbids in active Japanese military role outside of the country. Most of the talk concerned economic matters — and lifferences. nr» "We hope the U.S. will exercise an increasing degree jjtebf discipline in managing its own economy," Ohira said, ^"because economic trends in both countries could affect our ("future trade balance." Ohira was angered, conference sources said, by U.S. Amoves to restrict exports of soybeans and lumber to Japan •"and worried about American inflation. POINTING TO Japan's ''voluntary" restraints in shipments of steel and textiles to the United States, Ohira said: *"We would ask that the U.S. market does not become more closed than it is now. There is the problem of stable supply to Japan of such items as logs, scrap iron, wheat, soybeans and feed grains," Ohira said. "The Japanese government, which has been engaged in the promotion of imports from America in response to American requests finds itself greatly embarrassed by attempts to limit exports of a number of these items." The positions of the two countries, as set forth in speeches by Rogers and Ohira, showed a wide range of agreement. BOTH AGREED that the problem of Japan's swollen trade surplus with the United States — $4.1 billion in 1972 — is headed for solution. And both agreed that with the trade deficit problem fading away, the two countries are free to focus on oil, currency and trade questions that need solving. Rogers and Ohira also virtually agreed on a joint approach to the question of Japanese and American investment in developing oil and natural gas resources in Siberia.. UAW, 'Big Three 9 Begin Negotiations DETROIT (UPI) - Auto contract negotiations beginning today between the United Auto Workers and tihe "Big Three" auto companies cover more than 700,000 auto workers and indirectly affect one in every six American workers. After the largely cesemonial handshaking at General Motors today, Ford Tuesday and Chrysler Wednesday, bargainers for the union and auto companies, will try to hammer out an agreement before current three-year pacts expire at 11:59 p.m., Sept. 14. The /continuing government control on wages and prices has eliminated much of the strike atomospbere that surrounded contract talks in 1970. Those did not end until after the union had closed GM with a crippling 67-diay strike. Coming into today's talks, UAW President Leonard Woodcock has said there is no need for a strike this year. Auto industry negotiators agree, but admit there could begone if the union remains as adamant in the talks as it has. been in public on one key toon-economic issue—voluntary overtime. Woodcock has warned' of a possible walkout over that issue, saying negotiators should not take an "over-our-dead body" stand on voluntary overtime. Negotiators are almost cer­ tain Phase tit wage guidelines calling for wage and fringe benefit increases not te exceed 6.2 per cent will be continued. That guideline has been flexible with most settlements this year in the 6-to-7 per cent range. The key issues outlined in six months of saber rattling on both sides include: —Voluntary overtime. The union wants each worker to have the right to refuse to work overtime. —Improvement in the "30- and-ovt" retirement program with the pension increasing to $650 per montih with no penalty for retirement before age 56. . —Company-paid dental care. —Improvement in the cost-of- living clause to more accurately reflect price rises. —Strengthened layoff benefits. —th-plmt health and safety programs jointly administered by the union and companies.

LOSEY GALESBURG 343-6235 PHOTOGRAPHERS FOR MORE WEDDINGS THAN ALL OTHER GALESBURG STUDIOS COMBINED With 3-Year Writing Job CHICAGO (UPI) - James Drought, ono of America's leading and most innovative authors, has completed a three- year communications project begun in 1970 on a $36,000 grant from the Illinois Board of Higher Education. Drought has advised the board, through Keith Parsons, one of its members, that there were three books in the project, the scene of one of which is laid at Hinsdale Country Club and developed into a 90-minute television drama to be seen next January on a network hookup. The books were "Alivemovie- book," in 1970; "The Master," story of a golf professional at Hinsdale Country Club, and "Sonny Davis, Televised." Drought described flheim as "fCiree examples of modern myths designed to stimulate events far beyond the usual impact of old - fashioned novels done in a conventional way." "Aliveimoviebook" is the story of a young architect whose buildings were designed to move on their sites. It was published in program-form, distributed at mixed-media performances containing segments of live drama, music, film and video. "The Master," about the young professional at Hinsdale Country Club, tells of a young, instructor who is so concerned with his member-clients, that he begins to read their minds. It was produced in program-form. "Sonny Davis, Televised," is a nine-segimenit toaJMiour situation television comedy. It involves a young couple trying to break through tihe mediocrity of mass communications and get results with a new concept of entertainment. Drought said it was highly autobiographical. STARTING CUR... &itoj4&ett By ROSETTE HARGROVE PARIS (NEA) — The Pere Lachaise is the largest cemetery in Europe, as well as the most historic, romantic, unusual and interesting. It is situated in eastern Paris, far away from the fashionable residential areas. There is nothing lugubrious, morbid -or sad about this resting pJace. The atmosphere might be termed spiritual and philosophical. Children play on its paths, mothers nurse their babies, lovers walk arm-in- arm and elderly visitors saunter slowly along, while the romantics wander through sections where famous artists rest. THE CEMETERY covers almost 100 acres, shaded by 12,000 trees, some centuries old. A veritable metropolis of tho dead, it harbors more celebrities per square mile than any other place in the world. It is also a vast bird sanctuary. Pheasants have even been seen there while every variety of songbird can be heard come spring. There is also, possibly as a consequence, a cofony of some 400 cats. In a recent book, author Michel Dans©! presents a complete history of the celebrated burial ground from its incep- , tion to this day. It was the father confessor of Louis XIV who bought the plot of ground with monies donated by the Sun King. On it he built a rest home for his order and laid out the burial ground. AT FIRST PARISIANS were loathe to exile themselves to this gate of Paris for their last sleep. Then a city father hit upon a wonderful publicity idea—he transferred to the Pere Lachasie the remains of four historical celebrities — the medieval lovers, Heloise and Abelard, the playwright Moliere and La Fontaine, the m - 'is- 'i 4 CH >'V!

This immediately proved a big success and from the end of the 18th Century on, the Parisian bourgeoisie fought to buy themselves a plot. Since the end of World War I there are no more places to be bought. The cemetery is divided in 97 sections..

Lot Graham: Family Breakdown Causes Damage to Country ST. PAUL, Minn. (UPI) - Evangelist Billy Graham said Sunday that so-called Christian America is letting the home go to pieces, thus causing the nation to go to pieces. Graham pointed to the country's crime rate and compared it with the relatively low crime rate in Japan where, he said, the family is still held in high regard. A crowd estmated at 36,500, the largest yet in Graham's Upper Midwest Crusade, listened to the sermon on the Christian home. In his 45-minute message, the evangelist said the lack of cohesion in families is partly caused by lack of discipline and love. When children grow up without respect for their parents and other authorities, they easily become lawbreakers, he said . He advised fathers and mothers in the shirt-sleeved afternoon crowd to administer discipline firmly and quickly and give an explanation. He quoted the Bible, "Train up a child in the way he should go and he will not depart from it." hot sox ... . give your feet a whirl,. in a pair of bold, bright, bicycle sox . . , now in a variety styles . . . $2.25 to $3.50 open tonight until nine calico cat monday & friday 10-9 Saturday & weekdays 10-5 78 so. seminary, galesburg phone 342-2212 Saxon visitors. Edith Piafs tomb has its quota of romanticists. It also attracts spiritualists, seers and astrologistsi Who all seem to attribute therapeutic powers to the interpreter of "La Vie en Rose." The impressive mausoleum erected in memory of Heloise and Abelard (1110-1164), which reunited the medieval lovers torn apart by a wicked uncle, is the rendezvous of today's young" lovers, many of whom will throw a small bouquet of violets or other simple blossoms onto the tombstone. Alsoi much favored is the tomb of Oscar Wilde. The face of the enormous red marble flying sphinx, the work of the famous sculptor, Jacob Epstein, is that of the poet and author. THERE IS A musicians', poets' and painters' corner, but it can safely be said that anybody who was a personality in every walk of French life is buried here. Famous physicians, men of letters, empire builders, eminent soldiers, all lie beneath more or less elaborate monuments. The Pere Lachaise, more than any of the other Paris cemeteries, also attracts a greater number of "necro- miancists," neurotics and other unbalanced characters. There are, of course, too few guards to patrol the vast area. Every evening brings its quota of characters intent on getting locked into the grounds, there to spend the night in abandoned sepulchres or roam at their leisure. It also offers the greatest collection of incredibly ornate tombstones and mausoleums if only because, from the 18th Century on, a "concession" at the Pere Lachaise and a subsequent monument or votive chapel was considered one of the status symbols of tha French bourgeoisie. DANSEL RELATES the story of the dapper distinguished man who would be seen tending a very tall, mod­ ernistic monument in black marble on which a name was •inscribed in gold letters. Introducing himself as a researcher, Dansel said: "I venture to ask you a question because I have never heard of the gentleman who lies here. Can you tell me Who he is?" Rather proudly the gentleman replied: "Monsieur X is myself. This is my future home and it is only meet that I should from time to time come here to take proper care of it."
