LONDON (p) - Britain sought
unprecedented powers yesterday
from the United Nations to use
force if necessary to stop ships
delivering o i l f o r rebellious
Rhodesia.
Ambassador Moussa Leo Keita
of Mali, April Security Council
president, consulted urgently with
the other 14 members of the coun-
cil on Britain's call for a meeting.
The urgent move by Prime Min-
ister Harold Wilson"s government
is aimed at making sanctions com-
pulsory against the breakaway
white minority-ruled central Afri-
can colony.
The British prepared a resolu-
tion for the Security Council that
would putteeth into the sanctions
program. Right now the worldwide
trade ban on Rhodesia recoi-
mended by the Security Council
last Nov. 20 is not binding on UN
members.
Informants disclosed three es-
sential terms of Britain's resolu-
tion would:
1) Prevent oil shipments for
Rhodesia reaching Beria, the port
in Portuguese-ruled Mozambique
2) Compel flag-states to divert
ships of their nationality from
Beira if they are carrying oil for
Rhodesia.

3) Authorize Britain to use
force is necessary on the high seas
against any Beira-bound tanker
with oil for the Rhodesians.
By requesting only a limited
application of compulsory sanc-
tions, the British hope to achieve
a double purpose:
-To preserve for themselves
sole control of the Rhodesia crisis.
If a resolution were adopted or-
dering all-embracing sanctions,
enforcement action would be vest-
ed in the United Nations. This
in time could, in Britain's view,
lead to "Red troops in blue UN
Berets" establishing themselves in
southern and central Africa.

Republicans Produce
Tax Sharing System

WASHINGTON (P)-Republican
leaders said yesterday the federal
government should turn over to
the states 10 per cent of its in-
come tax revenues.
They said that would still leave
enough money to permit periodic

Foreign Communists were barred
from the secret session yesterday
just as they were 10 years ago.
The foreign Communist sources,
however, had attended all earlier
sessions of the congress and had
time to be briefed by Soviet col-
leagues on yesterday's secret meet-

--To stave 'off African, Asian,
Communist pressures* for ex-
tending sanctions against those
countries which refuse to join in
boycotting Rhodesia. This, in time,
could put South Africa and Por-
tugal's African territories under
international blockade. The Brit-
ish do a billion dollars worth of
trade with South Africa yearly.
Their investments in the republic
exceed $3 billion in value. This
had led them to oppose the idea
of boycotting or blockading South
Africa apart from the military and
economic difficulties that would
be posed.

'Bargaining
LODI, Calif. PP)-On the 21st
day of their march north through
California's Central Valley, vic-
tory-partial but exhilarating -
came to a ragged band of striking
farm workers.
Exuberant cheers echoed and
some tears flowed Wednesday
when it was announced in Spanish
that a giant of the liquor indus-
try had yielded to one of their
basic demands.
The marchers are Mexican-
Americans, grape pickers when
they work, who for seven months
have struck for better pay and
working conditions and the right
to have a union bargain for them.
News Conference
In Los Angeles, 400 miles south,
officials of Schenley Industries an-
nounced at a news conference they
have agreed to recognize the in-
dependent National Farm Work-
ers Association. The big liquor
company agreed to accept the NF-
WA as the sole bargaining agent
of farm workers in Tulare and
Kern counties and begin collective
bargaining within 30 days.
But O. W. Fillerup, executive
vice-president of the Council of
California Growers, said Schenley
Industries' farming operations
were only incidental to their bas-
ic whisky-making business and

Union
not representative of California's
agriculture, "where growers stead-
fastly have refused to sell out
their employes and force them in-
to a union that does not repre-
sent them."
At the heart of the grape strike
is the NFWA's demand for a $1.40
an hour wage plus 25 cents for
each 'case of grapes picked. The
workers now receive between $1.10
and $1.25 an hour and 10 cents a
case.
Until Wednesday, no major
grape grower recognized the
NFWA or admitted that a strike
existed.
Founder
Mexican-born Cesar Chavez, a
former farm worker, founded the
NFWA four years ago as a coop-
erative, then guided its evolu-
tion into a labor group.
Chavez said his group's next
target was the huge Di Giorgio
Corp., which he estimated employs
between 1500 and 200 workers in
the Delano area. Di Giorgio held
a news conference late yesterday
to reveal its plans concerning the
strike.
Chavez phoned word of the
agreement to a panel truck, equip-
ped with a mobile telephone, which
has accompanied the marchers
since their 300-mile trek began
March 17 'in Delano.

The Republican Coordinating
Committee envisioned a tax-
sharing plan reaching the 10 per
cent level eight years after it be-
came effective.
The GOP panel said the state
cut of income taxes should start
at 2 per cent and increase every
two years to the 10 per cent
ceiling.
"The Republican party has al-
ways advocated the strengthening
of our state and local govern-
ments," the committee said in a
paper approved 10 days ago and
made public yesterday. "But clear-
ly, these governments will be able
to meet less and less of their re-
sponsibilities if additional sources
of revenues are not found."
Federal aid earmarked for spe-
cific state projects is no solution,
the Republicans said, adding: "At
the worst, the states will continue
to sink into a morass of financial
inadequacy and eventual .bank-
ruptcy. At best, they will become
mere administrative appendages of
the national government."
Each state's share of national
income tax collections would be
determined on two bases under
the GOP plan.
The Republicans said half of a
state's rebate would ae dsigdd
to return the income taxes its
people had paid; the rest would be
computed on the basis of popula-
tion and income levels in a manner
designed to help poorer states.
In addition, the GOP panel safd,
the ban on racial discrimination
in federally aided programs should
be part of the revenue-sharing
system.
At current rates, the Republi-
cans said, income tax collections
are expected' to go up by about
$50 billion over the next 10 years.
The GOP revenue-splitting plan
would earmark $11.5 billion for
the states in that period, they
said.

World News Roundup

By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON - The Army
plans to bring about 15,000 highly
trained enlisted men back from
Europe to help with the buildup
of combat strength in this coun-
try, officials said yesterday.
Officials who stipulated that
they not be quoted by name said
the Army's total strength in Eu-
rope will be reduced to about 210,-
000 around midyear, but that it
will be restored to approximately
the current level of 225,000 by
the end of the year.
The men being returned several
months before expiration of their
normal tours of duty overseas will
be used in units being formed and

to furnish experienced men for
training draftees and recruits.
The officials who confirmed an
earlier report of the planned with-
drawal said there will be only
slight effect on the combat readi-
ness of the 7th Army in Europe.
They reiterated that it should be
possible to complete the Army
buildup and reinforce U.S. forces
in Viet Nam without removing any
major unfts from Europe.
HONG KONG-Police fired on
1500 rioting Chinese today as they
swept through Kowloon burning,
wrecking and looting. One rioter
was killed and two were wounded.
Gov. Sir David Trench imposed
a curfew on..Kowloon, with its
two million Chinese residents, for
the second day in a row.
The trouble began early yester-
day after 2000 young Chinese pa-
raded in protest of a proposed in-
crease in harbor ferry rates.

Most of the Chinese rioters were
teen-agers or even children too
young to know what the issues
are.
NEW DELHI, India-Two per-
sons were killed and six injured
when police opened fire on' 1000
brick-throwing demonstrators in
Calcutta yesterday.
The violence was a repeat of
leftist-led disturbances of mid-
March, in which 39 died and
scores were hurt.
Leftist leaders are still protest-
ing food shortages and other griev-
ances.
LANSING-The Michigan Su-
preme Court has issued an order
attempting to dismiss a challenge
to Michigan's present one man-
one vote legislative apportionment.
But legal sources said the order
apparently has no effect because
the court followed its usual 4-4
split.
