-THE UKIAH DAILY JOURNAL- TUESDAY, MAY 4, 1993 — 3 United Farm Workers names successor to Cesar Chavez KEENE (AP) — The United Farm Workers new president vowed to continue "the dogged persistence" that was the hallmark of the union's founder, Cesar Chavez. Arturo Rodriguez, 43, a son- in-law of Chavez, said on Monday he will continue to make the table grape boycott the union's top priority. "We will continue the dogged persistence which was one of the greatest lessons Cesar taught us," Rodriguez told reporters when his appointment was announced. "Our opponents must understand that we will never give up. We will keep plugging away day after day, year after year until the grape boycott is won, until farm workers have the final victory." The new UFW president was promoted from first vice president at an executive board meeting on Sunday. He first began working as a UFW activist while at the University of Michigan in the early 1970s where he earned a master's degree in social work. Rodriguez also met and married Linda Chavez during that time. Rodriguez's college education is in stark contrast to his mentor who never finished high school because his farm worker family moved so much. But Chavez founded and ran the nation's most prominent farm workers* union for three decades before he died of natural causes on April 22 at the age of 66. "People have asked what the UFW will do without Cesar Chavez," Rodriguez said. "He has already shown us the way. The ideals and values he established for the union will continue. We will continue strict adherence to the principles of nonviolent struggle for which he sacrificed. We will continue the principle of volunteerism." The union also announced that Dolores Huerta, who co- founded the union with Chavez in 1962, will return to the executive board from a sabbatical. Hispanics urge creation of memorials LOS ANGELES (AP) — Hispanic community leaders urged renaming of streets, dedicating of a high school, and issuing of a stamp to honor the late United Farm Workers leader Cesar Chavez. Chavez founded and ran the nation's most prominent farm workers' union for three decades before he died April 22 of natural causes at the age of 66. Today, Los Angeles County Supervisor Gloria Molina plans to introduce a motion to rename Brooklyn Avenue and Macy Street to Avenida Cesar Chavez. The seven-mile segment would run through historic Olvera Street downtown through predominantly Hispanic Boyle Heights and East Los Angeles. On Monday in Santa Ana, the proposed design for a stamp commemorating the union leader was introduced. It shows Chavez, with his name on the leftside and UFW Justice! emblazoned on the upper right corner. "I believe the struggle of Chavez should be forever commemorated on a postage stamp," said Zeke Hernandez, League of United Latin American Citizens state chairman. "Let us recognize the birth of a great American." Chavez stamp designer Steven Davenport and Enriqueta Ramos, Rancho Santiago Community College District trustee, also attended the Santa Ana announcement. Advocates said they chose Santa Ana because the school district agreed to name a new high school after Chavez. Santa Ana Unified School District spokeswoman Diane Thomas said the school would open in about two years.

Miai-priiu udpoanit fine." The Stanislaus County coroner's office on Monday completed an autopsy of Gallo, 83, cofounder with his brother, Ernest, of the E. & J. Gallo winery, the world's largest. Gallo was driving the Jeep Wrangler when it went out of control and slid down a 35-foot embankment. He suffered the fatal injuries when he was thrown from the car, said Dr. Thomas Beaver, the pathologist who performed the autopsy. California Highway Patrol investigators said Monday that Julio Gallo and Gina Gallo did not have their seat belts on at the time of the accident. Aileen Gallo and another passenger, Amie Gallo, 22, were wearing their restraints. Amie Gallo, who was uninjured, ran for help after the accident, which occurred four miles from the ranch house. She encountered another family member who had a cellular phone and emergency aid was summoned. CHP officials said they have talked to the survivors but are still unsure what caused the accident. "The speed was low but it was a dangerous road," said investigating CHP officer Gary Burlingame. "We know they went up an embankment, continued for a way and then lost control." Leading economic index falls 1% in March, worst since recession WASHINGTON (AP) — The government's chief economic forecasting gauge plunged 1 percent in March, the worst decline since the middle of the recession more than two years ago, the Commerce Department said today. The drop, slightly steeper than predicted by analysts, was a sign of the dramatic slowdown that has gripped the economy this year, compared with a brief period of U.N. takes over Somalia relief efforts MOGADISHU, Somalia (AP) — The United States gave the reins for relief efforts in Somalia to the United Nations today, marking the start of reconstruction for the war- ravaged country. In a low-key ceremony typical of the goal for a 'seamless transition," Marine Lt. Gen. Robert Johnston handed over control of the U.S.-led military coalition to Lt. Gen. Cevik Bir of Turkey, who will command a force that is projected to peak at 28,000 troops. robust growth late last year. The decrease was the worst since November 1990. It followed a modest 0.5 percent increase in February and a slight 0.1 percent decline in January. In December, at the end of the economy's strongest quarter in five years, the Index of Leading Indicators had leapt 1.7 percent, the best in a decade. The index is designed to predict economic activity six to nine months in advance. Three consecutive declines are a good, although far from foolproof, sign of a recession ahead. Analysts do not expect the economy to slip back into recession this year. However, they warn that growth is unlikely to reach the fourth quarter rate—4.7 percent as measured by the gross domestic product — anytime soon. Last week, the department reported first quarter GDP growth at an anemic 1.8 percent. "We're in a very subdued economy. There's nothing very buoyant going on," said economist Laurence H. Meyer. In a speech Monday, Treasury Secretary Lloyd Bentsen blamed the severe mid-March storm for much of the first quarter's weakness, calling the quarter "a winter pothole on our road to recovery."
