on de




gets near unanimous vote

ATHENS ,VP)- - The regime of
strongman Premier George Pa-
padopoulos rolled up a spectacu-
lar 92.2 per cent majority for its
new constitution yesterday, amaz-
ing Greeks and foreign diplomatsa
Approval of the document, cutt-;
ing King Constantine's power and
establishing a strong executive,
had been widely predicted.
But even Papadoplos' ministers
had not forecast such a lopsided
outcome, especially since the new
charter suspends most of the vot-
ers' basic rights until the govern-
ment chooses tprestore them.
The vote ap roached a unani-
mity comparable to one-ticket
elections in Communist lands.,
Skeptical remarks were heard
about the way the voting was run
at some polling places. But in

general diplomats and responsible
Greeks raised no doubts about the
fairness of the referendum.
The campaign had been one-
sided. Government officials, the
press and radio joined in a mas-
sive effort to persuade Greeks to
vote for the constitution. If there
was any campaigning at all in op-
position it was clandestine.
Observers of Greece's often con-
fusing politics put forth a variety
of reasons for the size of the af-
firmative vote. The common de-
nominator was that rejection
would have served no positive
However, the landslide may be
interpreted by the government as
a directive to proceed with Ats an-
nounced aims without losing riuch
time in thought about retumning
to a parliamentary system.

Papadopulos hailed the result
as a vote of confidence in his re-
gime and as a mandate to pursue
its policies.

CHINA TODAY: Red Guard Movement and

BLACKPOOL, England (A') -
The British Labor party rebuked
Prime Minister Harold Wilson at
its annual convention yesterday
by voting almost 5 to 1 to reject
his government's attempt to curb
wages in a drive toward national
With each delegate casting bal-
lots for all members of his organ-
ization, the vote was 5,098,000 to
1,124,000 for repeal of legislation
limiting wage increases.
It came despite strong appeals
by two cabinet ministers - Chan-
cellor of the Exchequer Roy Jenk-
ins and Mrs. Barbara Castle, who
is in charge of labor relations -
for support of the government.
The vote is not binding on Wil-
son, who has'stated after similar
adverse votes in the past that the
government represents all the
people of Britain and "the gov-
ernment must govern."
But it is an indication of the

the party convention came on a
resolution presented by the Trans-'
port and General Workers, Brit-
ain's biggest union. It was to a,
large extent brought about by a
passionate speech from Michael
Foot, leader of the party's left-
ist faction.
Foot charged the government
had turned its back on Socialist
principles in favor of "orthodox
conservative policies of deflation."
"We are not prepared to toler-
ate the scourge of unemployment
at its present level," he said, add-

ing that there were some in the
government, without mentioning
names, who actually favored a
policy of high unemployment.
Jenkins told the delegates the
government's austerity policy was
the only way to open up new hor-
izons in social policy.
He defended the administra-
tion's record in social welfare, but
said it had been paid for by loans
from other countries. This ar-

NEALE and DEIRDRE HUNTER are a young Australian couple who taught in
Communist China from 1965-1967 and lived the Cultural Revolution through
their students who became Red Guards. From July 1966 when all classes had
stopped with the 'students saying that they were "busy" until April 1967 when
the Huriters left China they kept up with developments in Shangai, reading the
wall posters, attending Red Guard meetings and talking with their students. Well
educated in Sino affairs, fluent in the language and so able to move about alone,
they traveled to Shansi and Kiangsi provinces and to Huhehot, the capital of
Inner Mongolia talking to the people and learning much about China today from
them. Neale did three years of graduate work in Chinese and Japanese at Can-
berra deferring further doctoral work for a time to travel. Deirdre has done grad-
uate work in Indian and Chinese Political Science. Co-author of China Observed
with Colin MacKerras (Praeger, '68) Neale is finishing a study for the Center for
Chinese Studies at Berkeley The Tiger's Back (U of Cal Press and Praeger, '68).
beirdre's Chinese Youth and Education will be published early in '69.

serve-as chairman of a mediation
Goldberg's intervention in the
three-part dispute was condition-
ed, however, on an agreement to
extend the present contracts of
the Policemen's Benevolent Asso-
ciation, the Uniformed Firefight-
ers Association and the Uniformed
Sanitationmen's Association.
There were indications the un-
ions might go along and extend
contracts that expire within nine
hours of each other beginning at
midnight. This would give the me-
diators tine to tackle the key
issue of wages.
The PBA's contract hovering
22,000 policemen had a midnight
expiration date, and the union had
threatened a "knockout punch"
against the city, without spelling
out details.
The 10,500-member UFA had
announced it would continue to.
fight fires with the expiration of
its contract at 8:45 a.m. Tuesday,
but would abandon clerical and all
other nonemergency duties.

The route taken by the Wallace
motor caravan was similar to the
one taten by Richard M. Nixon
when he opened his Republican
presidential campaign in Chicago
earlier this month. Some 400,0001

persons lined the sidewalks to ap-

A group of 300-400 Wallace

The jeers came -almost immed-
iately. A group of Negro youths
carrying signs which read, "Wal-
lace is a Bigot," fell in with the
supporters and marched alongside
the open limousine.
One of the Wallace supporters
was the Rev. William Lewis, a.
Negro minister who said, "I want
to shake his (Wallace's) hand -nd
tell him to keep up the good
work." He did.
Wallace's victory strategy calls
for him to score a victory in one
of the key Midwest states. In ad-
dition to -Illinois and Michigan,
