"We hope that we shall very soon
be, able to resume direct negotia-

"In light of this new development.
we are exploring with the Michi-

the possibility of getting the union
to resume collectiv6 bargaining."

The plan was such a success
that Mayor John Lindsay has
ordered 300 tactical -patrol force
policemen into the war against
crime in the streets disguised
not only as Hasidim, but other
clergymen, hippies, derelicts and
even women.

The plan involved assigning po-
licemen to the areas reporting the
greatest number of assaults. The
policemen will stay in the areas to
keep the level of incidents at its
new low level. They are walking
the streets of Brooklyn's Borough
Park, Williamsburg and also Man-
