Strikes Unnecessary
Malcolm L. Denise, a Ford vice
president and chief negotiator,
said "The strikes called this morn-
ing against plants of Ford Motor
Co. are completely unnecessary.
We have worked diligently with,
the UAW, on both the national!
and local levels, to settle hundreds
of unresolved issues - many of
which should not even be on the
bargaining table.
"In most of these local nego-
tiations which have failed to pro-
duce settlements, the union is
seeking concessions from the com-
pany that would restrict its right
to manage the plants efficiently,"
he said.
Ken Bannon, the UAW Ford de-Y
partment director, said "in every
instance where an unresolved is-'
sue has prevented a settlement,
a settlement on that question has
been reached at another plant,...
This is the greatest disappoint-

WORKERS AT A FORD MOTOR CO. ASSEMBLY PLANT in suburban Wayne left work yesterday
morning after negotiations failed for contract terms on the local level. At least nine of the 11 Ford
plants around the country lacking agreements had been struck at yesterday's 10 a.m. deadline. Other
plants that had settled grievances continued to work.

One Day Holiday
Teachers in two Oklahoma
school districts voted to take a
one-day holiday Monday. About
600 teachers in Midwest City, an
Oklahoma City suburb, voted for
a protest walkout and Tulsa's

CARACAS - Venezuela broke
diplomatic relations with Bolivia
last night, saying it does not recog-
nize the military junta that over-
threw the government of President
Victor Paz Estenssoro in midweek.

try said Ambassador Edmundo
Gibirin will leave La Paz as soon
as the Bolivian junta grants safe
conduct to the six Bolivians who
sought asylum in the Venezuelan'

after they had combined forces to
kick out iron-fisted President

vote to everyone over 21.
The decrees moreover proclaim-
ed, that the army should stay out
of politics.
The atmosphere still was tense
in La Paz, however. Steel-helmet-
ed, heavily armed army patrols
roamed the cobblestones of the
ancient capital, perched at 12,000
feet in the Andes.
But the feeling was that the
army - backed Barrientos regime
was firmly in command. "The jun-
ta seems well in control and the
general situation looks improved,"
a U.S. source said.
The junta is operating actually
as a military administration with
Barrientos as president of the Re-
public and the other 15 members
handling all the cabinet jobs.
Barrientos has promised to call
elections as soon as feasible. The
regime probably will be strength-
ened by the expected return of
Bolivia's ex-President H e r m a n

associates of Paz in the 1952 revo-

to power.
But most of the top leaders
broke with Paz as he tried to make
his regime a one-man show.
Unrest simmered for months and
finally exploded this week in the
open revolt by the army,-students,
tin-mine workers and all political
parties except Paz's own.
The revolt snowballed. Paz de-
cided he was through and hur-
riedly flew with his family and
some top aides to Lima. Some 200
of his stauncher supporters, in-
cluding most of his cabinet min-
isters, sought refuge at Latin
