I iv.,V., * yr .8 aa i n i m s ar-
gaining session was spent on a
University proposal concerning
hiring and firing practices.
The union had demanded that
all firings be subject to review
by arbtirators and that due
warning be given to an employe
in danger of being fired.
The University did away with
this, claiming in its proposal
that the demand was "too
rigid." Negotiators pointed out
that teaching fellows who were
incompetent would keep teach-
ing until the arbitration was
completed.
ARBIRTATION o f t e n takes
several weeks.,
The proposal also requires all
teaching fellows to take at least
six credit hours while they are
teaching.
But union negotiators claimed
that this is only because the
University wants to take in as
much money as possible.
"THE PROFESSORS in my
department are of the opinion
that their courses are not a
grocery list," one negotiator
said. "And they're not going to
alter their course to meet Uni-
versity requirements.
"Often the entire load avail-
able to me is five credits, and
regulations such as this force
me to pay for six. I see no rea-
son for that except that the
University wants as much mon-
ey as possible," she said.

ALTHOUGH THE B o s t o n

the stabbing of a 15-year-old

temporary.
"Yeah, the streets are quiet,

with the situation. The police,
and the National Guard are
still prepared for instantaneous

Last Friday at Hyde Park'
High, half a dozen police cars
and 20 officers attended the;
opening of school, but when
there were no incidents, all ex-
cept one car and three police.
men cruised off. -
THEY DIDN'T go far, though.
Less than two blocks away the:
police had established a com-
mand center overlooking a'
muddy playground on a deadend
street.
There was every indicationj
that Friday would be a quiet
day, and the nerve center
looked like a police convention.
There were cops everywhere,
milling around near the two
dozen cars and, vans, drinking
coffee from paper cups, reading
the newspaper, exercising the
horses, and talking shop.
THE ASSIGNMENT looked
like soft enough duty on a chil-
ly morning.
But there were grim remind-
ers that the holiday might end
at any moment. The windows of'
the big police van were criss-
crossed with tape to prevent
them from shattering in the
event that rock throwing broke
out.
There were police dogs in
cages, and thedrear of every
squad car held two riot hel-
mets, two nightsticks, and two
shotguns.
Boston's National Guard Ar-
mory is near Brookline, close to
the campus of Boston Univer-
sity and far from the trouble{
in the southern section of the
city. But you'd never know the

weekend warriors were far re-
moved from the action. Drilling
on the concrete floor of the
cavernous armory, they weren't
Just shuffling through their rou-
tines; they looked crisp and ef-
ficient as they responded to
commands.
THE GUARD isn't eager for
combat, but they displayed a
certain resignation. "There
won't be any trouble while we're
here, but as soontas we're gone,
then you'll see it and we'll be'
back," predicted a grey-haired
sergeant.
The Governor Sargent feels
the same way. Speaking at a
shopping center in the western
part of the state Monday, he
said he planned to keep the
Guard on duty indefinitely.
"We're not going to act has-
tily," Sargent .asserted. "It is
much easier to retain order
than to restore order."
THE GUARD IS ready to
tough it out for a long time in
Boston. General Nicholas Del
Torto, appointed by Sargent to
command the Guard in Boston,
has devised a plan for rotating
the troops on a weekly basis
to keep them fresh.
Del Torto claims reinforce-
ments can travel from Camp
Curtis-Guild in Reading to out-
side Bostonin only 20 min-
utes from activation time."
Meanwhile, Bostonians await
future developments. Next fall,
when a proposed expansion of
the busing plan may draw
more neighborhoods and some
of the city's suburbs into the
action, a new flare-up could
well be expected.,

McCormick said that of the
funds provided, "about 30 per
cent will be loans to insure
some return to Local Motion."
Michael Castleman of the
Free People's Clinic pointed out,
'We know of at least six other
communities that have funding
similar to Local Motion's."
Castleman cited Philadelphia,
where he said $25,000 was raised

businesses.
PREVIOUSLY, the city has
funded a number of community
organizations through the fed -
eral revenue sharing program.
But during the past year, these
appropriations were severely
cut back in an effort to meet a
local fiscal crisis.
More federal money- will be
available under a new special
revenue sharing program, but
the service organizations feel
that they stand little chance of
getting part of those funds.
At yesterday's meeting, Heri-
tier charged that Mayor-James
Stephenson has "announced that
revenue sharing funds will not
be going into social services."
Stephenson said later that he
"never made any such state-
ment." A City Council-appointed
committee is studying possible
uses for the additional revenue
sharing dollars.
