BRAZILIAN TERRORISTS kidnaped the Swiss ambassador
yesterday after shooting a Brazilian government agent assigned
to guard him.
The terrorists fled with 57-year-old Ambassador Giovanni En-
rico Bucher after scattering leaflets identifying themselves as mem-
bers of the National Liberation Alliance, an organization believed to'
have folded with the death of its leader last month.
It was Brazil's fourth political kidnaping since a rash of such
seizures began with the abduction of U.S. Ambassador C. Burke El-
brick on Sept. 4, 1969 in Rio de Janeiro. Elbrick was released after
the military government freed 15 prisoners held in connection with
politically inspired offenses.
ENGLISH AND WELSH electric p o w e r workers staged a
slowdown which tied up commuter trains and left millions of
homes without heat or light last night.
The nation braced for further trouble last night as militant la-
bor union members, in defiance of their national leadership, called
out half a million men for a one-day work stoppage to protest the JAMES FARME
government's proposed strike control law.J
The proposed law would make collective bargaining contracts tion, talks to neD
legally binding, and would provide for an obligatory 60-day "cooling and the Presider
off" period for strikes threatening a national emergency.
The government has warned the unions it will not back down on'
the antistrike law and says it has the support of most of the nation. COUNCIL
The stand by the heads of the country's biggest unions under-
mined a called Communist strike, the first since 1926.
Power workers said their go-slow tactics will continue until theirI
demands are met, but today's stoppage is a one-day affair. Frd

WASHINGTON (? - James Farmer, most widely known
black official in the administration, resigned yesterday in a
manner obviously intended to discourage speculation that
there had been any break with the President despite some
past criticisms of Nixon policies.
The outgoing assistant secretary of the Department of
Health, Education and Welfare, met for 26 minutes with
Prsident Nixon at the White House. Presidential press secre-
tary Ronald L. Ziegler then made public an exchange of
letters and told newsmen Farmer is leaving "on a very, very

good basis" in his relations
with the chief executive.
Farmer's letter of resignation
said he wants to leave his post, ef-
fective Dec. 21, because of personal
considerations and added "I great-
ly appreciate the opportunity I
have had during the past year and
a half to further this administra-
tion's efforts on behalf of the
American people, particularly
blacks and other minorities."
Nowhere in his four-paragraph
letter did Farmer indicate any dis-
illusionment with Nixon's racial
policies, and, in conclusion, the
founder and former head of the
Congress of Racial Equality, told
the President, "I am available for
whatever service my future com-
mittments will allow."
Farmer did not have a major
voice in shaping administration
racial policies and was not involv-
ed in civil rights enforcement. His
post at HEW concerned depart-
ment management and child-de-
velopment programs.
His one major victory came last
March when he persuaded the
White House to override a veto by
Mississippi Gov. John Bell Wil-
liams and continue federal fund-
ing for predominantly black Head
Start programs in the state.
Farmer's strongest criticism of
administration civil rights poli-
cies came in an interview last June
when he accused Nixon of "failing
to act as a spokesman for the
black community's aspirations."
He objected also to the Presi-
dent's so-called Southern Strategy
on elections.
"The blacks started out distrust-
ing the President and nothing h a s
happened to change that," he said.
In his letter Nixon said he is
accepting the resignation with
deep regret, praised Farmer's work
and said his counsel has not been
limited to HEW "but has been
drawn upon and respected
throughout the administration.

concerned a non-economic mat-

Exam hours
set at UGLI
The undergraduate library will
be open from 8 a.m. until 5 a.m.,
starting Thursday, Dec. 10 and
continuing through Friday, Dec.
The special exam hours are to
accommodate the cramming which
is usually synonomous with exams.
The special hours also facilitate
the last-minute rush on reserve
books, as well as on books used as
sources for final papers and take-
home exams.
The late hours also make it
easier to rationalize any day-time
activities. You really can do it

final okay
U.N. General Assembly yesterday
approved the establishment of an
international volunteer y outh

Peace Corps.
Its aim will be to channel ef-
forts of youth to aid developing
countries. The overseer w ill be
Paul G. Hoffman, 79-year-old
American advocate of expanding
help to "have-not" countries.
The action by the 127-nation
assembly came about two years
after the Shah of Iran proposed
such a corps in a speech delivered
at Harvard University.
The vote came on the same day
that Secretary-General U Thant
announced that Hoffman will
stay on for another year as ad-
ministrator of the U.N. Develop-
ment Program, the constantly ex-
panding effort for the develop-
ing countries.
The UNDP is a major source of
multilateral technical and prein-

countries, with an annual budget
of more than $250 million.

If you think you are pregnant, consult your doctor. Once your pregnancy
has been verified, you may wish to call us in New York, in complete
confidence. We will ask you how long you've been pregnant. Then, we
will advise you on everything you should know and may wish to know
about a legal abortion in New York. New York State Law does not
require residency, simply the consent of patient and doctor. It is best
to avoid delay as early abortion is simpler, safer, and less expensive.
If you wish assistance, including immediate registration into a fully
accredited hospital or clinic, utilizing the services of a Board Certified
or Qualified Gynecologist, we can make the necessary arrangements in
less than 48 hours, 7 days a week, at the lowest available prices for
such services.
This is the only agency of its kind, providing limousine service to
and from New York City Airports, hospital or clinic and our comfortable,
modern facilities in the Jackson Heights Medical Building. You may
enjoy refreshments, T.V. and music as you relax and await your return
flight. Complete ethical confidence is observed. New York State has
