Artillery duel
rages on DMZ,
By The Associated Press
American and North Vietnamese artillery dueled yester-
day along the demilitarized zone where Hanoi is massing
troops and heavy artillery.
The U.S. Command reported 15 "'enemy" soldiers were
killed and nine bunkers were destroyed by U.S. bombard-
ents in the southern half of the six mile-wide buffer zone
between the North and South. A spokesman said two second-
ary explosions indicated hits on North Vietnam ammunition
The North Vietnamese opened up with long-range artil-

Board last night found SGC

Thee in violation of the SGC
election code for exceeding the
$100 market value limit on
campaign expenses.
The board voted to impound all
campaign materials remaining in
Thee's possession and to enjoin
Thee and his supporters from ac-
quiring any additional campaign
The board also fined Thee $80.64
but it suspended $40.64 of the
The board also heard a complaint
last night from SGC candidate
Brad Taylor against The Daily for
allegedly misrepresenting t h e
status of an SGC candidate.
The hearing last night follow-
ed a preliminary hearing Thurs-
day night on the complaint, filed
by SGC member Marnie Heyn
against Thee.
The board found Thee's official
campaign expenditures amounted
to $140 - including $39 for ma-
terials which have not been used
- $40 above the $100 limit on
the fair market value of campaign
The board ruled that unused
materials in Thee's case should be
included in actual campaign ex-!
penses because they may have
been of value to Thee in planning
election strategy and because they
were made for a specific election.
The board ruled, however, that
'"since the unused material was not
of as much benefit as the material
that was used" the value of the
unused material was calculated at
two-thirds of its actual fair mar-
ket value.
Thee and his supporters spent
$120 on 500 silkscreen posters only
30 of which have been distributed.'
Thee said he had originally
planned to use the 500 silkscreen
posters but changed his mind after
receiving them.
It was only then, Thee said. that

Chavez told a news conference
that UFWOC will seek immediate


negotiations with 75 Salinas Val-
ley growers who signed contracts
with the Teamsters last summer.
"The greatest problem we face

now is trying to get those growers
to talk with us. That is the key,"
Chavez told a crowd-filled hall in
the Salinas Labor Temple.
If they respond that they have
Teanster contracts, Chavez said,
"that means we are going to boy-
cott and strike this spring."
In Washington William L. Kirch-
er, AFL-CIO organizing director,
said the agreement provides that
Teamsters will drop any contracts
with lettuce growers covering field
workers. And Chavez said "it was
implied they would rescind their
contracts" in the Salinas Valley.
"If they try to hide behind the
Teamsters contracts and refuse to

drop them even though the Team-
sters ask them to, there could be
renewed boycotting," Kircher said.,
Teamsters officials were un-
available for comment.
The agreement, extending to,
March 31, 1973, calls for referring
a dispute first to the U.S. Roman
