Page 20 THE NEWS, Frederick, Maryland Friday. September 1. 1967 Only 'Miracle' Package Can Avert Walkout DETROIT ( A P ) -- United Auto Workers President Walter P Reuther Thursday accused he Big Three automakers of conspiring to shut down the entire auto industry. He said that "as of now it will take a very good package of miracles to avoid a strike" when contracts expire at midnight next Wednesday. The fiery, red-haired union chief, who will be 60 Friday, accused General Motors of being the chief architect of the conspiracy which he said also includes Ford Motor Co. and Chrysler Corp. He repeated charges that all three companies and GM in particular were trying to provoke an industrywide strike. But he said the union had no plans to strike more than one at a time. GM immediately issued a statement saying "there is no basis in fact now or in the past for Mr. Reuther's charges of conspiracy or collusion." Reuther's charges at an afternoon news conference came as a surprise. He had been expected to name the company the union had picked to bargain with in efforts to reach a pattern-setting contract before the deadline Reuther said the industry v-as getting 24 hours to "dispel our concern about an industrywide conspiracy to thwart collective bargaining." He said the target company will be named Friday alter meetings of the union's national councils at the Big Three and of the UAW International Executive Board, scheduled between i and 4 p.m. Reuther said he based his conspiracy charges, levelled before in other bargaining years, on answers received to telegrams sent each firm Wednesday nignt asking if they were willing to extend present contracts. Reuther said Chrysler was offered immunity from a strike if it agreed to extend. He said ;he company rejected the proposal However, Chrysler released its reply which said the company might consider an extension later. The reply was almost identical to GM's which Reuther termed evasive. He said Ford, too, was evasive, but it co«i d not be learned what the company said. Presumably it was the same. Re'tther stressed that an immunity offer was nit made .0 F^rd or GM He said the offer ·'·o.iirf hqvo been made to ine of them if Chrysler had accepted. T he union traditionally picks one company to set the pattern fi»- the industry, then drives to settlement or strike with tbat company, leaving the other u\o operating normally. GM supplies parts to Ford and Chrysler as well as much smaller producers. If the gi-Hii firm closed down us supplies operations it could idle more tnan 650,000 autoworkers across the country. The union has said that if it strikes GM it will strike selectively, leaving the parts operations going. Reuther said th e union had no plans to strike all three companies Reuther said Chrysler rejeci- ed the offer of an extension, but the company was getting 2\ hours to "think it over '.' Reuther said the industry reaction to the extension suggestion "proved" the presence of a conspiracy. Reuther said the extension proposals were made "to insure tht uninterrupted product of at least two companies " He added that the selection of , a target was delayed "in oider to aflord the officials of Chrysler Corp a chance to give consideration to a very constructive proposal we have made to it " He said the union had offered it immunity from a strike De- cause it is the largest emplo' T in Detroit area, whose economy has suffered from a week-ljrg racial riot in July that caused millions in damage "We do not question the right of the Big Three to cooperate But when that cooperation takes the form of a collusive conspiracy directed against the UAW,"' Reuther said, the union "\\ill take whatever action is necessary to pro'ect the rights of its members." Reuther also said that i'ie contract proposals made +y the three companies earlier this week, first answer to union demands in two months of ta'ks, were "a public relations gas- iure."

"Frederick County, of all tne counties in Maryland, is uniquely placed in geology," said Kerns who prepared geology Kits for all Frederick schools *,.i-s summer "There a re pntire states that lack the variety cf geological formations that we have here," he said "In a few hours a class can go back one billion years by looking at the rocks and min- srals." He explained that Frederick is one of the few places that border on two geological provinces, Mountain and Piedmont, both of which are very old. "The volcanic, erosion and oceanic story of the earth cun be told here," he said. "For instance in Emmits'ourg we can tell there was a shallow river, there 200 million years ago. Wo have also found dinosaur footprints around there." He also said that a r o u n d Blue Ridge there are interesting specimens of red rocks whicli have been baked black. "About the only thing that this county lacks is a good t s sil collection," he added. Kerns spent the whole summer making up the kits for the schools. There are 24 specimens, 9 mineral and 15 rock in each kit. Twelve are from each province "The state made a collection a couple years ago and only found 15 specimens," he added There will be at least one kit in each school, and possibly up to four in some. A geological booklet has als been written describing geology in Frederick. "The book tells what Frederick was like '300 million ago," Kerns explained. "There is also a map drawn up with an index to show where the collections are along wife, a description of the 24 specimens and a geological time scale I P lating Frederick County to the whole earth," Kerns said. In the future Kerns hopes to show slides on geology includ'ng aerial photos. There is also the future pos^ 1 - bility of an elective course in earth science for Ihe h i . school students, Kerns added "Right now we are trying i show the teachers the way tn?t Frederick is uniquely placed i- peology," he said. "We a: e trying to get teachers, especial ly those in 8th grade earth ="ience to stimulate interest in the area." Why hold the Bag?
