Police Fire
On Rioters
In Belgium
BRUSSELS (A - State police
fired on 300 rioters in the big in-
dustrial city of Liege yesterday,
wounding 2.
Two others were injured when
the police answered a barrage of
rocks by wading in with rifle
butts.
The rioting provided a jarring
note on a day that saw most Bel-
gian workers back on their jobs
after 28 days of strikes against
the government's austerity pro-
gram. The back-to-work move-
ment was on even in Liege and
other parts of the industrial
south.
Attack Streetcars
The demonstrators broke away
from a peaceful meeting attended
by 3,000 workers and began at-
tacking trolley cars in the suburb
of Chenee.
The Socialist General Trade
Union Federation claimed the
strike remained total in Walloon
in the industrial south. But
checks showed the big metal plants
of Walloon were almost back to
normal, and railroad workers went
back to their jobs. Work in coal
mines still was limited, however.
In the north, the industrial
centers of Antwerp and Ghent re-
ported a complete return to work
and similar reports came from
other areas outside Walloon.
Plan Described
A Socialist plan to solve the
country's financial and economic
difficulties and replace the gov-
ernment sources as a rehash of
the Socialist electoral program,
with nothing new. Among other
things, the Socialists propose to
nationalize the coal mines.
Senate committees will examine
the austerity bill later this week.
The Socialists objected to its pro-
gram of higher taxes and curtailed
social security spending.
The bill has passed the House of
Representatives. Passage is cer-
tain in the Senate, where the gov-
ernment majority is larger.

"MYSTERY BASE"-A B-26 plane is parked on the runway of the Guatemalan "mystery base" a
Retalhuleu. Guatemala has denied that the base is being used for any possible invasion of Cuba
"There are no aggressive intentions in connection with the activities at Retalhuleu," the defens
ministry has announced. "They are just routine activities of the Guatemalan army." A grou
of bombs is stacked by the side of the runway next to a small wooden platform.
