p \: rv i_» ^, KE PUBLIC '"'"'"'' RULLDOG 1I«A the Atfedfia ftepublte Phoenix, Sunday, Sept, 14,1969 Bay area docks idled 2nd day by picketing Associated Press SAN FRANCISCO - All but priority shipping was halted for a second straight day yesterday on the San Francisco and Oakland waterfronts as teamsters and longshoremen prepared for a court fight over who should pack and unpack cargo containers. Workers handled only military items, perishables and mail. Longshoremen worked on regular cargo vessels without containers but refused to handle nonpriority container items. Their representatives and officials of the Teamsters Un ion prepared for a hearing tomorrow on a temporary re- stfaining order against teamster pickets who struck Marine Terminals Corp. in Oakland last Monday. A federal judge will decide whether to make the order permanent. Teamsters have told the court any injunction against picketing "should be under conditions that the Pacific Maritime Association refrain- from making any changes with respect to practices that have prevailed historically as to loading and unloading ot trucks on the docks." Before containers, longshoremen did the loading and unloading. Then they obtained a PMA contract last month giving them the task of pack- king and unpacking almost all of the containers, which have streamlined shipping in recent months. W.GERMANS CONFER WARSAW (AP) - A West German Communist delegation led by Kurt Bachmann is conferring with Polish officials, the PAP news agency reported, en route to Moscow tomorrow for its first two- way talks with members of the Soviet Party Central Committee. Safeway to give unit pricing 2-mo. test Department store chain also sets tip consumer service experiment different speeds the blender will run. New York Times Service WASHINGTON — A two-month test of unit pricing-listing the price per pound or pint of packaged foods and detergents—is being set up by Safeway Stores, Inc., for one of its Washington supermarkets. The experiment, tentatively scheduled to start Sept. 29, is designed to provide information on the cost, practicability and usefulness of unit pricing. Many promoters of consumer interests have long favored such a system as the answer to the housewife's problem of determining what brand or size is the most economical. The number of different-sized packages on supermarket shelves makes price comparisons all but impossible at present. The Safeway test was arranged at the suggestion of Rep. Benjamin S. Rohenthal, D-N.Y., who is the chief House sponsor of a pending bill for compulsory unit pricing. Another experiment in novel consumer service has been set up by Federated Department Stores, Inc., also at Rosenthal's suggestion. Federated will test a modified version of England's "teltag" program at Lazarus, its Columbus, Ohio, store. The project, starting tomorrow, involves the attachment of "guide-buying" tags to electric percolators, blenders and steam irons. The tag provides pertinent information to shoppers such as the minimum and miximum capacity of percolators, brewing time, material and length of time serving temperature will be held. The back of each tag gives several tips on what to look for in making a good selection. For example, the blender card notes that "speed range influences ability to chop, liquify, grind, blend." The front of. the card tells at how many The test will continue thrugh Dec. 24, according to James G. Michaux, Federated's Washington representative. Both the Safeway and Federated experiments were applauded by Rosenthal as "progressive breakthroughs" in the field of consumer services. Officials of the two companies however, shied away from any such claims. Michaux said the Federated project was designed to test customer reaction to the buying guide tags without any intention of making them a permanent part of its merchandising program. He said it was the proper role of manufacturers rather than retailers to install such a program if they thought it would be practical and worthwhile. In the Safeway experiment, company officials said in a recent interview here, gummed price labels will be printed by a computer and attached to the facings of shelves in the store. About half of the store's 7,000 items, including detergent packages and most of the food containers, will be priced by the pound or pint. / Concerto dedicated to Marilyn Monroe VENICE, Italy (AP) - To please an anonymous patron of the arts, the world premiere of a concerto was dedicated to the memory of Marilyn Monroe at the international Venice Festival of Contemporary Music last night. The composer, Silvano Bussotti, said the patron asked that his name be kept secret. Bussotti's "Rara Requiem," a IVz-hour concert for a seven-voice choir, cello, guitar and wind instruments, was heartily applauded.
