* « « * « REPUBLIC B-2 The Arizona Republic 13 REPUBLIC MAIL Sat., ,Ju»« 30, 1973 More about Violence Hares in grape farm dispute Continued from Page B-l provisions of the restraining order he issued Wednesday to restrict mass picketing by the UFW against Goldmar. The order had limited the number of pickets to 20 on each road abutting the vineyards, with not more than five pickets to congregate in one group and the groups to be at least 100 feet apart. Under 'the amended provisions, as More iri • « ' £?.; • about hmpnse suing bteiger Continued from Page B-l confidential information from Emprise files and interfering with Emprise food and drink concessions. Among the concessions mentioned in the suit are those Emprise holds with the Oakland Athletics baseball team, the Portland Meadows Race Track of Portland, Ore., the Centennial Race Track of Littleton, Colo., and the Pensacola Dog Track of Pensacola, Fla. Emprise and Sportservice allege the conspiracy began in 1967 and is continuing. Besides seeking damages, the Buffalo firms want a court order enjoining the defendants from "committing additional acts in furtherance of the conspiracy." Servomation is based in Delaware, while Servomation Duchess operates out of California. In another Emprise matter Friday, it was announced that Missouri subsidiaries of the Emprise Corp, will be allowed to keep their beer and liquor licenses, but the state will retain control over Emprise liquor operations in St. Louis. The announcement was made by State Liquor Control Supervisor Michael D. Garrett in Jefferson City, Mo. Garrett said citations against the old licenses will be dropped and the licenses will be renewed after the June 30 expiration date for selling beer in Busch Stadium and the Arena, and selling liquor by the drink at Kiel Auditorium, in St. Louis. But Garrett said St. Louis lawyer Charles B. Blackmar will continue to be trustee of the Missouri operations of Em- prise. No time limit was announced. many as 50-pickets can be-placed on each road in groups of five to be 10 yards apart. The original restraining order had limited the number of pickets to three before any ranch entrance and to remain 25 feet from the entrance. Under the amendment, six pickets can be at any entrance without a distance restriction. Thompson also modified trespassing orders so that now at least four UFW members can have access to labor camps at one time to talk to the workers. At the state level, Robert Dickelman, board counsel with the State Agricultural Employment Relations Board, said the unfair labor-practices charge had been filed by El Dorado as a result of the UFW picketing. He said the charge is being investigated to determine whether the board should issue a complaint and name a trial examiner to hear evidence on it. Board rules empower examiners to issue orders to "desist from the unlawful acts found and take action to remedy their effects." The board was created by 1972 legislation approved by Gov. Williams who immediately became the target of a recall campaign spearheaded by the UFW. New state military unit gets director Col. Donald E, Morris, an Arizona Air Guard fighter oil* ot, was appointed Friday as executive officer of the military division of the new Arizona Department o f Emergency and Military Affairs. His appointment was announced by Maj. Ren. Charles W. Fernald, adjutant genera! of Arizona. Morris, a native of Oklahoma, trained as an aviation cadet at Williams Air Force Base and after receiving a commission in February, 1944, became an instructor pilot at Luke Air Force Base. -He joined the Arizona Air National Guard's 197th Fighter Squadron after its organization in 1947 and served with the unit until it was mobilized for the -Korean war. He became the first commander of the Air Guard's 162nd Fighter Group in Tucson in 1956 and remained until 1971 when he was appointed chief of staff for the Air Guard. His decorations include the Legion of Merit. Morris and liis wife. Leona, live at 5660 N. 12th St., Phoenix. 25 treated after rabies exposure^ NOGALES —Some 25 persons in the Tubac area are being given p o s t-exposure treatment for rabies after contact with a sick dog, Santa Cruz County health department officials said Friday. A pel being cared for by two families while its owner was on vacation died of the disease last week, they said, and an attempt is being made to locate the owner. Rab|cs control officer Edgar Condes said the rabies quarantine will be strictly enforced and county residents -hafe been warned that any animal not vaccinated arid restricted to the owner's properly will be confiscated for 6bservfi- tion. Teamsters using goons in fields, Chavez claims Associated Press CLEVELAND - United Farm Workers leader Cesar Chavez accused the Teamsters Union Friday of organizing goon squads and smuggling alien workers in a new struggle involving the California grape fields. "When this chapter is written into history books, we'll have to be hard-pressed to find another situation as disgraceful as the one now taking place in C a 1 i f o r n i a," Chavez told a Cleveland City Club audience. Chavez, who organized the migrant laborers during the 19£0s, also became the figurehead in a five-year national boycott of grapes in supermarkets. In 1970, the grape growers agreed to sign three- year contracts with the UFW. Earlier this year, however, the growers signed new contracts with the Teamsters, and the United Farm Workers organized picket lines and a new grape boycott. Chavez said he felt more than 90 per cent of the Teamster s national membership did not realize what was happening and that the UFW "places the blame on Teamsters President Frank Fitzsimmons." "Probably the greatest tragedy of all is that we have to spend so much time and money fighting the same struggle we won three years ago," Chavez said. He said the UFW has retained the support of most of its members. The workers in the field now include "illegal immigrants brought in by the Teamsters to break our strike," he said, He said the UFW protested to the Immigration Service but that so far it has not acted. "It would take a miracle," he said, adding: "Or perhaps a change of administration." Chavez said the Teamsters also organized "goon squads — I can't think of any other word for it." "They make a. big point of calling us Communists and waving the American flag in our face and insinuating that, well, somehow we are not Americans," Chavez said. He said his workers have not fought back when violence occurred and that they were accused of being afraid. "We're not afraid," he said. "The stakes are too high to be afraid." Chavez said the strike and boycott would succeed because "we will make it work. We said, we made it work before. It'll work again." "We have more support for our grape boycott now after four weeks • than we had at the end in' 1970, when we forced them to sign contracts," he said. "The big problem in our society is it's such a big country," he said. "But once we . get to fair-minded people, we have no difficulty getting their support. "A boycott basically is people," he said. "It's not lettuce, it's not grapes. It's people." Chavez said the Teamsters have dropped UFW demands for hiring halls to replace labor contractors, do not guarantee workers field breaks and have not enforced contract requirements for field restrooms. ' "We don't know what there is in it for the Teamsters," he said. "My hunch isthatFitz- simmons is sick and tired of the whole thing.. And I hope to God he is. "The Teamsters in those fields are acting as company union," he said. He said the growers made "four basic miscalculations." He said they thought the workers would no longer support the UFW, that a boycott wouldn't work a second 'time, that the AFL-CIO would not backstop UFW strike funds and that "once the contracts were signed we would go away' and that we wouldn't strike." Now the growers, "with the Teamster marriage, down the road, can see only a lot of headaches," he said. "Our interest is not to destroy the growers," he said. "We want them to be healthy. But we want them to sign a contract with us" More about Ambulances Continued from Page B-l ing that "a rate increase is a single solution, and I don't think the problems's that simple." For instance, rural and urban companies have different problems, he said, explaining that two of the rural companies he examined said "they didn't care" whether the increase was granted because it would not help them. "They said, 'We can't collect now,'" Hill explained. In -rural areas, volunteer help and subsidies may be more practical solutions to financial problems, he said. Asked if he feared state and federal subsidies to ambulance companies might be misused, Hill said there are stringent controls to assure that those funds are spent to help improve ambulance service in communities. His office has provided nine ambulances to various com- since 1969. The state gave $240,000 in ambulances and hospital subsidies last year. "That money goes to do a specific job and the controls for spending it are very rigid," Hill said. Both Bowman and Hill said they favor higher wages for ambulance employes. Hill said he believes urban companies need a rate increase, but he added he could not support that belief with facts. A team from Hill's office •will seek to work with the ambulance companies in the future to find out jf it can help them "from a management standpoint" and whether different answers to their problems besides rate raises exist, Hill said. Bowman said his office, which must require semian- ' n.ual financial reports from the companies, has been working with the companies to improve the bookkeeping situat&i.
