T:» -- 9:15 EOA Seeks Community Aid In Assessment Of Area Needs The Washington County Economic Opportunity Agency (EOA) will conduct its annual needs assessment this month. This is the first step in the agency's annual planning process which will result in the submission of an application for ocal initiative funding.

One-third of his wages goes jr rent, because his eight years on the job do not qualify iim for subsidized housing. Host of the rest buys food. "With the increasing prices, my stomach just doesn't get filled up with this," he told a railyard visitor, explaining why w joined thousands of other railroad workers this week in a crippling strike. Their target: 75 per cent wage increases and annual bonuses of one month's pay. Indian law requires similar bonuses for many private businesses and some other government corporations, but Prime Minister Indira Gandhi's government says the rail unionists' demands would be too much for struggling economy to ah sorb. India's 1.4 million rail work ers, employes of the world's fourth largest railroad, are paid between $32 and $160 month, and another 300,000 part-time laborers draw even less. Many nevertheless refused to follow the strike call, heeding the government's poverty plea afraid to jeopardize their jobs in an economy with an unemployment rate estimated at'15 per cent and more. But Verma, 25. a truck driver and loader, followed his leaders out in Wednesday's first strike call. "It's not a question of my liking it or not liking it. We have no option," he said. Sita, Verma's 22-year-old bride, brews a cup of tea and gives him a dry cracker for breakfast More he bicycles nine miles to his job. For lunch it's a chapati, a flat Indian wheat bread, and lentil soup called dal. Although he doesn't agree with the government's handling of the strike -- more than 4,000 union activists have been ar rested -- he does not blame the government for his problems. "It is not tile fault of the government or of the strikers. It is the fault of the black markc eers who raise the prices," he said.
