ganizing committee, headed by
Cesar Chavez, has failed in its
organizing campaign," Mendoza
said in a press statement.
"While they claim to be friends
of the working men, Chavez and
his AFL-CIO bosses are making
the workers suffer because the
workers don't want to join the
"The boycott has already cut
the grape pickers work week from
a normal six days at the height of
the present harvest season kack
to four days," he said.
The average minimum wage for
California vineyard workers is
$1.63 an hour on a yearly basis,
claimed Mendoza. The average
pay in both New York and Mih-
igan is $1.35 an hour.
"If any (areas) need improve-
ment, we should start at the bot-
tom," he added.
Mendoza said many California
vineyard workers ar permanent
residents in the areas in which
they work, not migrants as the
organizing committee would have
backers believe.
"Chavez does not represenit the
people he is supposed to repre-
sent," Mendoza said. He Baid he
would "probably be exaggerating"
to estimate that two per ceit of
California's 200,000 farm workers
support Chavez.
On the other hand, Mendoza
said, some 3,500 attended an anti-
Chavez rally in Kearn County,
Calif., heart of the grape strike.
Mendoza claimed there are some
5,000 farm workers in the count.
The boycott-backed by union
leaders, church groups arid several
mayors of large cities like New
York and Detroit-was originally
called by the United Farm Work-
ers organizing committee.

growers have refused to negotiate
contracts for pickers and imported
"illegal Mexican nationals" to
break the strike. A boycott is the
only method to help workers, say
committee members.
Relief funds
LAGOS, Nigeria QP)-The squab-
ble over relief for Biafra between
the Nigerian federal government
and the International ,ed Cross
took a new turn today with a Ni-
gerian accusation that $4.2 million
in cash had been used by the
Biafrans to buy war material 4wn
The charge came from a fed-
eral government spokesman who
said the money was provided, by
the West German Red Cross and
by German and Scandinavian
church organizations for relief to
civil war victims.
The spokesman claimed Bhfran

Committee of the Red Cross in

Spokesmen in Lagos for she Red

bassy denied having information
about the money.
Another f e d e r a 1 statement
claimed the Biafrans are buying
chemicals in Europ, and sug-
gested that the "pos ibility of the
