Then, when shorter and Carter stepped Mft of the cage, their' sympathisers lifted the two onto their shoulders, and carried them out of the plant at 7:30 p.m. Shorter and Carter , said Woolsey, 32, "harassed the workers and harassed us." A spokesman for the United Auto Workers said that Woolsey and another supervisor earlier this year triggered a work stoppage "for riding the guys and using abusive language," and because of that was transferred from . the south plant to the north plant where Tuesday's uprising took place. In a telephone interview, Woolsey sarcastically identified himself by saying, "I'm the tyrant." But he refused to comment on the firing and the charges against him. Daley Supports Donation Drive Toll elp Africans CHICAGO (UPI) - Mayor Richard J. Daley says he will introduce a resolution at a City Council meeting Wednesday urging support for a food and fund drive for drought-stricken northwestern Africa. Daley said he hoped Chicago residents would help provide food and water for about 10 million Africans. The Rev. Jesse Jaickson, executive director of Operation PUSH, said several African nations have not had sufficient rainfall for five years. He said 10 million persons will die by October if they do not get relief. The ambassador of Upper Volta, T. Yaguibou, told Daley about $700 million is needed to build dams and trees to keep the Sahara Desert from encroaching on fertile land. Gary'Mayor Richard G. Hatchery, recently presented a resolution to the Gary City Council to support the fund drive, Jaickson said.

A typical question-and-answer exposition reads something like this: The Lighter Side Q. What effect will the new anti-inflation program have on the average consumer? A. The first effect of the new anti-inflation program is expected to be a sharp increase in food prices. Q. How will rising food prices help combat inflation? A. Consumers will have less money to spend for other things. Q. What was wrong with the previous anti-inflation program under which food prices were frozen? Q. The freeze was causing food shortages, which tended to be inflationary. Q. What is the main difference between the two programs? A. It's the difference between not having steak because it isn't available and not having steak because you can't afford it. Q. Did the President give any thought to a compromise under, which he, would only freeze the price of frozen food? A. No. Freezing the price of frozen food would merely lead grocers to start selling frozen food at room temperature. Q. Thank you. You are to be commended for explaining a complex, confusing situation in such a way that the average reader can understand it. A. Don't mention it. It's all part of the job. End catechism. Perhaps the average reader has noticed'something a little strange about this., type of elucidation. The odd thing you may have noticed is that whoever poses the questions never poses a question that is too difficult for whoever is supplying the answers to answer. Which is seldom the way things work out in real life. So now, Mr. and Mrs. Average Reader, I am going to explain to you the apparent omniscience of the economic explainers. Here's the inside dope: The guy who asks the questions and the guy who answers them usually are THE SAME GUY! And, needless to say, as long as he has control over the questions, he is not going to stump himself. That's only human nature. He is going to feed himself questions he can knock out of the park.

Such a territorial base in the middle of the Indochina peninsula could be used by North Vietnam one day to renew guerrilla operations should it decide to disregard the Viet* nam peace accords. In the meantime, officials say the North Vietnamese are Viets Appear To Have New Strategy showing Significantly lean interest in their earlier pwpoals for a National Council of Reconciliation and Reconstruction in Saigon and diminished enthusiasm for an election in South Vietnam. Three Main factors The officials credit the change in North Vietnamese attitudes to three prime factors: --Apparent recognition in Hanoi that (the North Vietnamese military machine has been unable to defeat South Vietnamese forces and, in fact, has suffered severe losses in personnel and equipment. —The need to recoup North Vietnamese military strength which was squandered in a number of offensives prior to the Vietnam cease-fire agreements of Jan. 27, 1073. —Realization that neither the Soviet Union nor Communist China appears to be interested in promoting and assisting North Vietnam's military de- sighs on countries of Indochina. Harassing Tactics Expected Officials familiar with the warworn history of Indochina oyer the last decade suggest that Cambodian insurgents and their North Vietnamese supporters would not try to take control of the beleaguered Cambodian capital of Phnom Penhn. To do so, they reasoned, would confront these Communist forces with the liighly difficult problem of supplying and administering that capital over one million persons. Rather, one official predicted that the approximately 40,000 insurgents would try to harass the Cambodian capital with hit- and-run tactics, Cutting off Vital road links and interfering with supply convoys moving up the Mekong River. The halt in U.S. bombing "raids in Cambodia on Aug. 15. will bring the situation there to a critical juncture in which U.S. officials believe the Cambodian armed forces will either become tougher or conceivably deteriorate through demoralization. Between now and then, the United States is quietly but energetically trying to open discussions which might lead to the long hoped-for cease-fire in Cambodia. i^" if ' • III 3 DAYS ONLY!
