Henry Ford
Strike Nears
Disputes in Riverview,
Traverse City Still
Block Starr of School
The faculty and administration
of Henry Ford Community Col-
lege in Dearborn reached an
agreement in principle yesterday
to end the four-day old teacher
strike at the schools but details
of the new contract remain to be
The agreement between Henry
Ford College Federation of Teach-
ers and the Dearborn Board of
Education, which administers the
school, essentially accepted the
fact-finding report issued by How-
ard Cole of Ann Arbor Thursday.
A meeting of the college's 150
teachers was planned last night
to consider acceptance of the
agreement. James Tobin, attorney
for the Dearborn school board
said he hoped that the board
would also consider the agree-
ment Friday night.
This tentative pact brought hope
for a quick end to one of the three
teachers' walkouts affecting Michi-
gan schools.
Riverview Strike
The Riverview Education Asso-
ciation. charging a violation of
teachers' constitutional rights,
filed suit against the Riverview
Board of Education.
Meanwhile. efforts were under
way to solve a "no contract-no
work" teacher walkout that has
caused officials to place 3,000
children on half days at Traverse
The Riverview association, bar-
gaining agent for the 150 teach-
ers in the Detroit suburb, accused
the board of refusing to bargain
in good faith and imposing "ar-
bitrary and unreasonable condi-
tions" on teachers' return to work.
The Riverview board announced
Thursday it would not negotiate
further with the teachers until
they return to work. The district's
3.000 pupils were to have started
classes Thursday but stayed home
because of the strike.
Arrogant Refusal
The association also charged
the board with "arrogantly refus-
4 ing" to continue negotiations as
requested by the Michigan Labor
Mediation Board, refusing to em-
power its bargaining team to en-
gage in "meaningful negotiations"
and attempting to deprive teachers
of "vested property rights," in-
cluding accumulated leave days
l under previous contracts.
A hearing date on the suit was
not immediately set.
After a marathon series of sep-
arate bargaininig sessions that
ended early yesterday in Traverse
City. the Traverse City Education
Association, bargaining agent for
the teachers, turned down a school
board proposal asking the teach-
ers to return to work.
The board asked the teachers
Thursday night to return to work
The board asked the teachers
Thursday night to return to work
and accept the recommendations
of a state Labor Mediation Board
fact-finder. who suggested tax
money once allocated for a com-
munity college be devoted to tea-
cher salaries.
In a counter-proposal. a spokes-
man for the education association
said the teachers accepted most of
the board's offer. The spokesman
said, however, the association still
sought "the readjustment of cur-
rent budget money" for teacher

USSR-Viet Leaders
Meet, Hint Peace Bid

MOSCOW Y)-A high-ranking
North Vietnamese delegation met
here yesterday with Soviet Com-
munist party chief Leonid I. Brez-

tion of Moscow - Hanoi peace
moves in Viet Nam.
Diplomatic sources noted that
the Soviet press had described the
Hanoi delegation earlier as an eco-
nomic mission. And in addition,
North Viet Nam's Foreign Minis-

dent Johnson's statement that he

forces from Viet Nam if anyone
shows him a schedule when infil-
tration from the North is halted.
Communist sources said the del-
egation was here to discuss Soviet
economic aid and possibly political
matters, including relations with
Red China.
An official Soviet announcement
said Brezhnev met in "an atmos-
phere of friendship and cordial-
ity" with North Vietnamese Depu-
ty Premier Le Thanh Nghi. Le is
a member of Hanoi's ruling Com-
munist politburo. The brief an-
nouncement did not disclose what
was discussed.
The Soviet delegation included
two key officials in charge of re-
lations with foreign Communist
parties, strongly suggesting that
the talks may have touched on
China's role in Hanoi.
The two were party Secretaries
Mikhail A. Suslov and Yuri A.
Andropov, both ranking Soviet ex-

that Hanoi was moving away from

A spokesman said Wednesday
