UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. (R - The United States and 16
other countries called yesterday on the General Assembly to
seat Red China in the United Nations while permitting Na-
tionalist China to remain.
The long-awaited resolution also proposed that the Pe-
king government should be given China's permanent seat in
the Security Council, which carries with it the all-important

round of debate in the assembly's 25-nation steering com-

No one wanted the blues master to leave the stage but he had to give
way to the other artists. "They have to be heard. You know they got
a right," Mississippi Fred McDowell explained. And anyone who had
seen the Arhoolie Records artist's set should consider themselves
lucky, for they had been treated to a blues giant who had lived it
a lifetime and played it for the betterapart of three decades.
He accompanied his vocals with Stella, a Gibson electric guitar,
slightly amplified, and Jim Tutunjian on Fender bass. The set was
pure blues, smooth and clean, as McDowell allowed his fingers to
float across Stella's frets augmenting a strong vocal blues style which
McDowell could truly call his own. "My Babe," "Baby Please Don't
Go," "Good Morn' Lil' Schoolgirl," and "You Got to Move," had
everyone foot stomping and drifting at the same time. The man
has lived his music.
Also appearing was Tom Everett, RCA Records artist. Everett, playing
a 12-string guitar and accompanied by a three-man back-up, ran
through several pop country tunes from his new LP, "Porchlight On
in Oregon," "Excitation Revire," "Theresa," and "Bad Dreams," fea-
tured a good vocal effort on Everett's part and a very tight group.
But Everett does not have the total control of his voice as yet. His
style, somewhat akin to Roy Orbison's vocal style, really showed when
he sang Orbison's "It's Over." Everett sits on the threshold of a fine
career, and his group is more than adequate. There will be more
heard from this RCA artist in the future.

EAST AND WEST GERMAN negotiators broke off talks yes-
terday aimed at carrying out the four power agreement on Berlin.
Egon Bahr, West German state secretary and chief negotiator,
said the talks were deadlocked over the issue of translating into
German the text of the agreement signed on Sept. 3.
Bahr told newsmen that the two Germanys had come to an
agreement on the German translation and impl'ed that the East?
Germans had gone back on what was agreed on.
THE TRENTON BOARD OF EDUCATION voted Tuesday
night to fire 330 of the school system's 333 teachers because of an
eight day work stoppage by those teachers.
Superintendent J. Warren Adair said the board viewed the strike

fill the vacancies.
The Trenton Education Association which represents the striking
teachers said the TEA had offered four separate proposals for at-

Prices, wages climb;
gas hike major factor
THE NATIONAL LEAGUE of Cities agreed Tuesday to support
an amendment to the U.S. Constitution which would "outlaw or
at least severely control handguns in this country."
The new rule should leave the details of prohibition of handguns
the federal government and preserve the right of the people
own long guns.
The government said today in
its first consumer price report
since President Nixon ordered
the wage - price freeze that
both living costs and wages rose
Living costs increased three-
tenths of one per cent, largely
because of a sharp boost in gas-
oline prices, but the government
said the figures did not reflect
the wage price freeze because
the figures were compiled before
it took effect.
Average wages of some 45
million rank-and-file workers
rose 2 cents an hour to $3.44 and
$1.43 a week to $129 a week in
August, and purchasing power
edged up within five-tenths of
one per cent of the record high
of 1968, the report said.
The August price hikes pushed
the Consumer Price Index up to
122.2, meaning that it cost
$12.22 last month for every $10
worth of typical family pur-
chases in the 1967 base period.
The sharpest rise was a 3.7
per cent hike in gasoline prices,
largest in more than a year.
Hodgson said Nixon's Cost of
Living Council set up to monitor

a gasoline price rollback as de-
manded by Sen. William Prox-
Neither, said Hodgson, are
there any plans to roll back

The U.S.-backed resolutions rep-
resent a major shift in policy for
the Nixon administration, appar-
ently linked with the President's
planned visit to Peking and other
steps to improve relations with
the Chinese Communists.
A major objective of the United
States, however, as stated by top
officials, is to preserve a place for
Taiwan in the world organization.
The Indians were attempting to
make a citizens arrest on John
Crow, deputy commissioner of the
BIA who they charge is a tool of
the anti-Indian elements within
the Interior Department.
Twenty-six Indians, mostly from
the American Indian Movement'
(AIM) and the National Indian
Youth Council, were arrested and
charged by the Interior Depart-
ment with illegal entry. But BIA
Commissioner Louis R. Bruce ask-
ed Interior Secretary Rogers C. B.
Morton to drop the charges.
TuSsday, Navajo Tribal Chair-
man Peter MacDonald told a news
conference that Crow is cutting
short reforms Bruce had initiated.
Most of the reforms - such as
giving Indians more protection
from invasions of their land, wat-
er and mineral resources; c o n-
tracting out some BIA functions
to the tribes and downgrading the
powers of the BIA superintendents
to give Indians themselves more
say-so - were endorsed by Presi-
dent Nixon himself in a speech a

who said, "statistics show that it is not criminals, but friends and
