To Favor Coalition
PAR ENTS BLAMED:
Panel Calls Grosse Pointe
Rich 'Middle Class Ghetto'
BONN, Germany (P) - The
powerful Bavarian wing of the
Christian Democratic party ap-
peared Wednesday to favor a
grand coalition between its na-
tional wing and West Berlin
Mayor Willy Brandt's Socialists
for West Germany's next govern-
The Bavarians' official news-
paper indicated that if this could
not be arranged, then "the Chris-
tian Democratic party's leadership
should not shy away from a na-
tional election in due course."
The Bavarian wing is led by
former Defense Minister Franz
Joseph Strauss, who also publishes
the party newspaper, Bayern-
Criticizes Free Democrats
In a Bavarian state election
campaign speech in Nuremberg
Tuesday night, Strauss said that
the first coalition talks between
the Christian Democrats and the
Socialists Tuesday "belong to the
most interesting hours of my par-
He criticized the Free Demo-
cratic party for pulling out of the
coalition with the Christian Dem-
ocrats under Chancellor Ludwig
Erhard. They quit over the gov-
ernment's handling of the budget.
Echoing Strauss' crticism of the
F r e e Democrats, Bayernkurier
"As long as the Christian Dem-
ocrats don't have an absolute
majority in the Bundestag, they
need, a truly firm and stable coali-
tion, which is not possible without
a responsible and serious partner.
"Should a partner not be found,
the Christian Democratic leader-
ship should not shy away from a
national election in due course."
Kiesinger Past Dismissed
In his speech, Strauss also dis-
missed the Nazi past of Kurt
Georg Kiesinger, Christian Dem-
ocratic candidate for chancellor.
"As far as I am concerned, the
question of his political integrity
is settled," Strauss said. Kiesinger
worked in the radio propaganda
section of the Nazi Foreign Min-
istry. For the past eight years he
has been minister-president of the
State of Baden-Wuerttemberg.

DETROIT QJP)-Michigan's con-
struction industry was described
yesterday as maintaining a hiring
system which excludes Negroes
from the skilled trades.
The finding was included in a
report of a 10-month study of em-
ployment patterns and practices
by the State Civil Rights Commis-
sion in Detroit, Lansing and Grand
The commission said it found
"evidence of racial prejudice on
the part of a small percentage of
management and union officials
as well as among apprentices" in
the construction field.
Although the over-all level of
Negroes in the industry parallels
the proportion of Negroes in the
population, the commission said,
most of them are among the ranks
of unskilled labor.
The commission said it would
encourage union and manage-
ment to end all discriminatory
practices and other barriers to
equal opportunity. But it warned:
"Should efforts to encourage
immediate voluntary affirmative
programs fail to produce the re-
quired changes, the Civil Rights
Commission will be prepared to
take those actions under its con-
stitutional authority which will
bring the required results."
Findings were based in part on
interviwes with 82 employer con-
tractors and 36 labor organiza-
tions, the commission said.' Only
five employers and one trade.
union-- the Operating Engineers-
refused to cooperate in the study,
according to the commission.
The job application process is
very informal in the construction
industry, the study found, explain-
"The place to apply for a con-
struction job is at the job site,
where the applicant talks with the
superintendent or the foreman . .
Most employers do not have any
written application forms, and the
whole complex of activities asso-
ciated under the heading 'person-
nel' is for the most part unheard
The commission said that points
of rejection of job applicants
might be the job site guard or!
foreman, the office staff of the
employer, the employee-manager,
the apprentice school, the union
hall oficical or the union examin-
Union officials in the skilled
trades consistently denied the ex-
istence of discriminatory hiring
practices, the commission said.
