WASHINGTON (AP) - Thousands of
auto workers were given short shifts
yesterday and the prospect of product
shortages, and other disruptions
loomed as a trucking industry lockout
of 300,000 Teamsters took hold.
The lockout, ordered by industry
executives after the union launched a
limited weekend strike over a contract
dispute, was expected to halt a sizable
portion of interstate shipments of
general freight - from fresh foods to
factory parts - within days.
THE AUTO industry was the first to
feel the impact of the industry shut-
down. The nation's two largest
automakers, General Motors Corp. and
Ford Motor Co., said an estimated
48,000 assembly line workers were
being sent home early yesterday
because of parts shortages and further
production cutbacks were imminent.
A spokesman for Trucking
Management Inc., (TMI), which had
ordered the lockout Sunday, said its
more than 500 member firms account
for 85 per cent of the unionized inter-
state freight business.
The spokesman, Norman Walker,
said "virtually all" of TMI's members
were complying with the lockout - a
tactic used in labor disputes in which
employers refuse to let their employees
ONE INDUSTRY analyst, who asked
not to be named, predicted a nationwide
shutdown could trigger a "very serious
crisis" in the economy within two
Some food stores could run out of
fresh foods, particularly meat, within a
week, said Robert Dobkin, a
spokesman for the retail food industry.
"Right now, we'll have to assess this a
day at a time," said Dobkin.
The Carter administration has said it
would seek a court order under the
Taft-Hartley Act to end either a
nationwide strike or lockout if the labor
dispute poses a national emergency.
THERE HAS never been an industry
shutdown of this scope that lasted
longer than several days.
As a result, administration officials
said yesterday it would take several
days for them to determine the impact.
The only previous industry shutdown
came in 1976, when the Teamsters
union struck for three days before set-
tling on its last national contract, which
expired this past Saturday at midnight.
MEANWHILE, federal mediators
said it was unlikely that bargainers for
the union and TMI would resume
negotiations until Thursday at the
earliers, in part because the union's
350-member national bargaining com-
mittee is meeting in Chicago tomorrow.
Industry negotiators said they of-
fered a three-year package that would
boost wages and fringe benefits by
about 30 per cent - a figure the in-
dustry said was in compliance With
Carter's relaxed wage standard.
THE UNION, however, sought ad-
ditional improvements in cost-of-living
protection for workers, a demand the
industry rejected as exceeding the

policy as cause of income
By JEFFREY MILLER
The United States' foreign aid
program has served only to enrich ad-
ministrators in the recipient countries
while the poor in those countries
haven't been aided at all, Congressman
Clarence Long, (D-Mo.), told a con-
ference here last Saturday.
Long, who is chairman of the House
Subcommittee on Foreign Operations,
said that foreign aid has been
distributed "to fight communism
rather than to help poor people." In
comments made before some 50
delegates of the International
Association for the- Advancement of
Appropriate Technology in Developing
Countries (IAAATDC), Long said the
result of foreign aid has been the
creation of thousands of demonstration
projects in recipient countries which
create glaring income disparities, but
do not help the poor of those countries.
THE SOLUTION to the problem, ac-
cording to Long, is the adoption of
"capital saving technology," more
commonly called appropriate
All the speakers at the conference,
including Long, emphasized that ap-
propriate technology is a philosophy.
They maintain that the only way un-
developed countries can improve their
economic status is to utilize small
amounts of capital to develop,
manufacture, or construct facilities,
tools, and plants. These facilities must
be designed to meet the specific needs
of each nation. Long asserted that the
majority of the capital investment for
development projects must be
generated by the undeveloped countries x

speeches and discussions in which the
theme of appropriate technology was

"There is a tradition of misusing

ed the proposal was the wrong ap-
roach to solving the absenteeism
aguing the LSA faculty.
"The reason we do not get faculty in-
rested in coming to these meetings is
ecause we are not in control of impor-
nt issues here," he said. "What we
ave is most decisions being made by

irs (Harold Shapiro) or the Dean

e significance get discussed here."
AFTER FURTHER debate, the

Science and Technology at the United
Nations, told the workshop delegates
that he foresaw increasing pressure in
the next decade on industrialized
nations to correct the economic and
technical inequities which exist bet-
ween developed and undeveloped
Standke told those at the conference
that "the idea that 'small is beautiful'
will perpetuate dependence of un-
developed countries on colonial
powers." He added that any technology
which advances the growth of a country
should be considered appropriate.
William Ellis, director of. Tran-
snational Network of Appropriate
Technologies, said "The best thing the
U.S. government can do for the Third
World nations is get out of their way."
