Bosch To Seek Office r
SANTO DOMINGO (A') - A church-political crisis that threat-
ened to upset the Dominican Republic's first free election in 38 years
appeared resolved last night.
A heavy turnout is expected in Thursday's voting with the re-
traction by a Roman Catholic priest of his charge that a front-runner
for the presidency was a Communist.
Juan Bosch and his left-of-center Dominican Revolutionary Par-
ty declared themselves back in the race after threatening to boycott

UN Condemns Portugal'
For Angolan Policies
UNITED NATIONS (MP)-The United Nations General Assembly'
yesterday asked the Security Council to impose penalties on Portugal
in an effort to compel that country to set its African territory of
Angola on the road to independence.
Asian-African nations supported by the Communist Bloc approved
a harshly worded resolution calling for sanctions by a vote of 57
to 14 with 18 abstentions. Twenty-one nations were absent. The

Hoffa Case
NASHVILLE (R) - The pro-
tracted conspiracy trial of Team-
ster President James R. Hoffa
moved ahead in a sudden burst of
speed yesterday and the judge
said the case should reach the jury
Closing arguments and the
Judge's traditional charge remain
before the Jury begins delibera-
tions. The trial began Oct. 22.
Hoffa is charged with conspir-
ing to violate the Taft-Hartley Act
by accepting payoffs from a Mich-
igan transport firm as a bribe for
labor peace.
Maximum Sentence
If convicted on the two-count,
indictment, he could get a maxi-
mum sentence of two years in
prison and a $20,000 fine.
"The case should get to the jury
on Friday," Federal District Judge
William E. Miller said after Hoffa

opposed the resolution. That cast
doubt on any actual call for sanc-
tions since each has a big power
veto in the council.
In Lisbon a spokesman for the
Portuguese foreign ministry said
yesterday Portugal can only regret
UN persistence in "intruding into
Portuguese intern"1 affairs."

Commenting on the resolution
adopted by the UN Assembly ask-
ing the 'Security Council to take
sanctions against Portugal in or-
der to make it comply with pre-
vious assembly and council resolu-
tions on Angola, the spokesman
said, "We have never agreed on
the UN mingling with our internal
affairs and we cannot do anything
but be sorry for the UN acting in
such a way."
The resolution was the toughest
of any yet passed by the assembly
in dealing with Angola, the
sprawling territory on Africa's
southwest coast where Portuguese
rule is being challenged by in-
dependence-seeking natives.
Stop Arms Shipments t
By its action the Assembly re-
quested all member states to stop
arms shipments to Portugal-a
move directed at the North Atlan-

The resolution condemned Por-

scribed as a "colonial war against

DAKAR, Senegal - President
Leopold Senghor sealed his victory
in a power struggle last night by
arresting his ousted premier, Ma-
madou Dia.
The National Assembly cleared
the way for the conservative lead-
er earlier in the day by abolishing
the office of premier, turning
these powers over to Senghor and
stripping the leftist Dia of par-

Senghor announced he will pros-
ecute Dia and his followers for
abuse of authority in trying to
seize power Monday. Dia had split
with Senghor over economic poli-

Associated Press Labor Writer
ser Steel Company labor pact an-
nounced Monday is an important
effort toward solving at a single
stroke the most perplexing labor-
management problems today.
It probably will have some bugs
in it that will need revising. But
it surely stands as an example of
what a willing management and a
willing labor union-in this case
the AFL-CIO Steelworkers-can
do in tackling mutual problems.
In broad terms, the agreement
seeks to: 1) reward workers along
with management for production
socess; 2) guarantee employes
against losing jobs to machines;
3) eliminate the main cause of
strikes, and 4)accomplish all this
by enhancing rather than damag-
ing the employer's financial posi-
Taylor Group
Prof. George W. Taylor of the
University of Pennsylvania, chair-
man of the advisory committee
that came up with the plan after
a three-year study, called it "a
significant breakthrough in the
field of labor-management rela-
The agreement was hailed by
high government officials.
Secretary of Labor W. Willard
Wirtz said it was evidence that "by
serving a mutual interest individ-
ual interests can be served." Sec-
retary of Commerce Luther H.
Hodges said it represents'"the kind
of thinking we need to do in this
Cost-Saving Plan
The chief feature is that a new
labor-management teamwork in-
centive has been created through
an agreement to share cost sav-
ings. Nearly one-third of such sav-
ings is to be distributed monthly
among workers as a bonus, with
the rest going to the company.

About half the company share
would go to taxes, thus benefiting
the public to that extent. And, of
course, part of the workers' bonus
would go into income taxes.
Edgar Kaiser, head of the steel
firm, said the net result will be
higher wages but lower unit pro-
duction costs. He added, "The
minimum for Kaiser workers will
be the rate set by the big steel
contracts with the union, but if
this plan doesn't produce a lot
more for our workers then it just
will not be successful."
Accept Automation
The planners figure that the
worker stake in operating the most
economical and efficient level of
production will lead almost auto-
matically to even eager accept-
ance of automation and elimina-
tion of unnecessary employes or
work practices.
That is where an important sec-
ond part of the pact comes into
play. Workers whose jobs become
obsolete can be assigned or train-
ed to other tasks but their income
will continue at the same level.
This is not regarded as so heavy
a management cost item as might
appear because normal turnover
due to deaths, retirement and quits
exceeds automation job losses.
No Contract Deadlines
Finally, Kaiser has agreed sim-
ply to accept whatever wage lev-

els are set by the rest of the steel
industry and pay the cost-shar-
ing bonus on top of it. The Tay-
lor committee says this acceptance
of industry pay levels will "do
away with contract deadlines with
respect to economic issues, con-
tributing greatly to industrial
The Taylor group believes the
cost savings sharing plan is a bet-
ter incentive system than profit-
sharing. The worker can do some-
thing about cutting costs. But he
has little or no say over sales, re-
search, management, expansion or
similar policies that are the em-
ployer's province.
Court Decides
On Work Right
WASHINGTON (-) - The Su-
preme Court let stand Monday a
lower court ruling that any vested
rights workers have to their jobs
when their plant is moved from
one city to another hinges on the
wording of their union contract.
This perhaps was a significant
decision on an issue of major im-
portance at a time when many
manufacturers are moving their
plants because of tax inducements
or other reasons.

next year's proposed tax cuts made
retroactive to Jan. 1 and declared
his own view that most of the re-
