Officers said Barker's car allegedly slammed into vehicles at four Rock Island intersections.

The infant was treated and released at a hospital here, while Mrs. Coatney was in fair condition suffering from head injuries.

Participating in the drive were the Agribusiness Accunt- ability Project, New Populist Action, and Project on Corporate Responsibility. "A highly concentrated corporate sector has arisen between the field and the dinner table, and it is taking nearly two- thirds of today's food dollar," the three groups said in A statement. "Food is fast becoming one of the most concentrated industries in the country. A steadily narrowing number of corporate | middlemen are in a position to control food production, food prices, food quality and even food supplies. There were 32,500 food manufacturing firms counted in the 1M7 census of manufacturing, but a mere 100 of those took 71 per cent of all the profits." The statement contended "efficient family farmers" are going out of business at the Irate of 1,000 a week. "On one end of the food chain, consumers can't afford to eat, oh the other end, family farms can't afford to stay in business," the groups said. Government Policy Government policy enhances the movement to corporate control of the food economy, the groups said. The groups said their campaign would focus on one brand name corporation, Del Monte, the world's largest canner of fruits and vegetables. Del Monte was described as the "symbol of ah agribusiness giant.'" Spokesmen for the campaign were listed as former Ok* Court Clog May Limit Appeal Capability WASHINGTON (UPI) Chief Justice Warren E. Burger [predicted today that clogged court dockets could eventually mean that a convicted defendant will have to get permission before he can appeal. Appeals are now available to anyone. If an individual has no money he can appeal at public expense. In his "state of the judiciary" message, prepared for delivery at the first meeting of the Assembly of tJhe American Bar Association (ABA), the Chief Justice urged creation of more federal judgeships, higher pay for judges, and a long look at the controversial proposal for a "mini-court" to relieve the Supreme Court of some of its work. He reported that for the first time in 12 years federal trial courts disposed of slightly more cases than were filed. But there is still a backlog of 126,000 cases, hie said. Burger chided the White House for delay in filling federal court vacancies, which he said continue "to be a source of irretrievable loss." The failure to increase judges' salaries for five years, while other federal salaries have gone up by a tnird, will make it more difficult to induce competent attorneys to take judgeships, Burger said, "and we must not settle for less than the best." The Judicial Conference, the administrative arm of the federal judiciary, has asked Congress for 61 additional trial judges and 11 more circuit judges. Burger said (that in the past 10 years, cases filed in the 11 courts of appeal have increased from 5,437 to 15,000. To meet the avaJanchle, he said, many courts have screened cases in order to decide some without arguments—often without opinions. "Now ithat the courts have experimented with these screening processes, it may be that the time has come to consider whether some other alternative is available, as for example, a procedure requiring a litigant to secure leave to appeal," he said. An appellate system review board is already considering the idea, along with proposals to rodistrkt the circuits for more efficient operations. lahoma Sen, Fred Karris; now chairman of New Populist Action; James McHale, Pennsylvania secretary of agriculture; Kay Paehtner, director of San Francisco Consumer Ac* tion; Jose Angel Gutierrez, national president of La Raza Unida; and Florence Rice, director of the Harlem Consumer Council.

The 'Movement' Still Exists But the Urgency Is Gone By DAVID E. ANDERSON WASHINGTON (UPI) - At the peace movement's last attempt to hold a mass street demonstration in Washington, venerable activist Dr. Benjamin 'Spock complimented the protesters on Itihe number who appeared to be over 30 years old, Washington Window "Yeah," one long-haired wag in the crowd mumbled, "we've all been here so long, we finally grew up." Speck's comment indicating the lack of young people present—and the small crowd the protest attracted—provided commentators with grist for another round of obituaries on "the movement." These have been commonplace since people started taking to the streets. Yet there is a half-truth in the obituaries: the day of mass street demonstration is over, for the time being anyway. Protesters Pray That doesn't mnean the movement for. radical social change demanded by the protests has not gone away.

Some Issues Remian The difference between now and the late 1960s is less that the "movement" has gone away ias that the issue, Vietnam, which was able to convulse segments and classes in the country (notably the middle class), has gone away with the return of American GIs from Southeast Asia. The issues that remain- minority rights, health care, welfare and others diverted by the war—appear narrower in their focus. With the possible exception of the farmworkers, they have not been given the urgency that propels them front and center. It is also possible that even were that to occur, the response of the "movement" would not be the same as it was for mobilizing opposition to Vietnam — the .use of large- scale street demonstrations. The American Freedom from Hunger Foundation haa called for a three<iay "nialtional fast for unity" on Winnebago Indian land in Winnebago, Neb., at the end of August. A major part of the meeting, according to organisers of the fast, is "to forge new social action strategies for the 70s." ' The fast is expected to draw some 500 activists from AIM, the Congress of American Indians, UFW, the Notional Worried About FALSE TEETH Coming Loos*? Afraid false teeth will drop at the wrong time?

It is highly unlikely these activists—many who cut their radical teeth during the civil rights movement of the mid- 1950s and the anti-war protests of the 1960s—will again get large numbers of middle-class liberals into the street. But it seems clear that the radical minority, in part created by those two issues, Has not drifted away in a cloud of Yippie marijuana smoke. Businessman's special! and back NICE GOING!
