CISCO CRISIS:

Strikers
SAN FRANCISCO ()P) - Strik-
ing city employees seeking high-
er pay ignored a back-to-work
court order yesterday and set up
new picket. lines to further snarl
area transit. Police held off on
arrests in the hopes of avoid-
ing trouble.
The transportation paralysis
forced commuters to drive cars,
ride taxis or bikes, hitch rides
or walk. ,The strike caused an
economic loss estimated at S20
million a day. Beaches w e r e
quarantined because shut down
treatment plants poured 500
million gallons of raw sewage in-
to the bay and ocean.
THE SEWAGE crisis ended

paralys<
yesterday when pickets w i 4 h-
drew and 100 nonstriking plant
technicians returned to t h e i r
jobs.
"What we're hoping is t h a t
everybody will cooperate and we
won't have to arest anyone. We
don't want to'complicate the sit-
uation," said Police Lt. William
O'Connor, explaining the lack
of arrests.
The effects of the strike spread
as the city employes halted bus-
es from Oakland, forcing ano-
ther 18,000 commuters to find
alternate means of transportation.
Some 360,000 transit riders al-
ready have been affected by the
walkout, which began last Thurs-

transportation

day.
SAN FRANCISCO General Hos-
pital was closed to all but enier-
gency cases and most other pa-
tients were transferred. M o s t
students stayed home f r o m
school or shivered in unheated
classrooms.
Robert Cadillac, 15, walked 37
blocks to Galileo High School
and found it virtually de ierted.
"This is too much," he said, sit-
ting glumly on a concrete step.
The Teachers Union, repre-
senting about half of the city's
5,000 teachers, walked out Fri-
day in a separate dispute.
THE CITY'S cable cars, trol-
leys and buses were shut down

Violence hits miners' strike as
W. Va. Gov. lifts gas ruling

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (M -
Gunfire hit the southern West
Virginia coalfields as Gov. Arch
Moore Jr. acted yesterday to end
a severe wildcat strike by sus-
pending a controversial rule
limiting gasoline purchases.
Moore suspended foi- 30 days
his rule that prohibited service
stations from selling to anyone
whose tank was more than one-
quarter full. But it was not cer-
tain if that suspension or a fed-
eral court order would end the
17-day walkout that now idles
27,600 miners.
Gunshots rang out shortly be-
fore midnight Tuesday at the
Keystone No. 1 mine of Eastern
Associated Coal Co. in McDowell
County, the. heart of, the strike
area. Two pickets were injured
seriously, and a woman who had
stopped to chat suffered less
severe injuries.
"SINCE THIS HAS happened,
I don't know whether lifting the
quarter-tank rule will help or
not," said a miner who has been
active in the protest movement.
Referring to the limited back-to-
work order issued by a federal
judge in Virginia, the miner said,
"I don't think it will have any
meaning now."
The strike began over short

supplies of gasoline, but has con-
tinued despite renewed supplies
in the area, which is deep in the
Appalachians in the heavily
unionized southern part of the
state. Miners have demanded
that Moore rescind the quarter-
tank rule. But coal and steel
company officials have charged
the reasons for the strike are
intraunion politics and maneuver-
ing in advance of this fall's coal
industry contract talks.
The walkout has crippled pro-
duction of mettalurgical coal,
which is necessary for the pro-
duction of steel. U.S. Steel has
already laid off 300 workers, put
others on short work schedules
and said up to 30,000 workers
could be, out of work by the end
of the week.
MOORE SAID yesterday that
he never believed the gasoline
issue was the cause of the strike.
He said he had been told that up
to 98 per cent of the men off
their jobs want to go. back to
work.
A McDowell County deputy
sheriff said the shootings of the
two men and the woman occurred
at a major mine where the entire
work force wants to go back
to work. However, as long as the
pickets remain the miners will
not work.

Officials said five men were
picketing the Keystone mine
when rifle fire started from the
top of a hill. When they started
down a road, shots also came
from the foot of the hill, catching
them in a crossfire. Authorities
said Jerry Jenks and Roby
Castle, both in their early 30s,
were admitted to a hospital in
Welch, where Jenks was in criti-
cal condition and Castle listed as
satisfactory.

Saxbe reveals wiretaps
under Kennedy, Johnson
WASHINGTON (A") - Atty. Gen. William Saxbe suggested yester-
day that newsmen may have been the targets of government wiretaps
during the Kennedy and Johnson administrations.
But former President Johnson's attorney general, Ramsey Clark,
declared "it never happened" during his term of office from late
1966 through 1968.
SAXBE TOLD REPORTERS he has reviewed a file of national
security wiretaps from 1960 until 1973 and found such eavesdroppingi
widespread during the previous two Democratic administrations.
Justice Department spokesman John Hushen said later that Saxbe
was referring to a list of wiretaps prepared by the FBI last summer
at the request of then Atty. Gen. Elliot Richardson.
Hushen said the list does not show whether newsmen were among:
those whose telephones were tapped.
SAXBE SAID ALL of the taps were authorized by previous attor-
ney generals. Clark said he approved no taps on newsmen, but said
it is possible one such case occurred prior to his administration.
Saxbe said the file is classified secret.
THE ATTORNEY GENERAL said he offered the file to special
Watergate prosecutor Leon Jaworski because he thought it might
have some bearing on Jaworski's investigation of Nixon administra-
tion wiretaps on four newsmen and 13 National Security Council aides.
But therattorney general said Jaworski replied that he already had
the information.
At one point, Saxbe flatly stated that newsmen were wire-tap
targets during the Kennedy and Johnson years. But at another point,
he said "I can't say that for certain."

This isyourkto unprecedented calculaling
capacity Only Hewlett-Packard offers it
It lets you "speak" to your calculator with total consistency, because
it lets you load data into a 4-Register Stack. This means: (1) you always
enter and process your data the same way, no matter what your problem;
(2) you don't have to re-enter data; (3) you can see all inter-mediate data
anytime.
Our HP-45 is one of two pre-programmed scientific pocket-sized
computer calculators with this key. That's one reason it's the most pow-
erful pre-programmed pocket-sized scientific computer calculator. Here
are three of many others:
1. It's pre-programmed to handle 44 arithmetic, trigonometric and
logarithmic functions and data manipulation operations beyond the
basic four (+, r, x, +).
2. It lets you store nine constants in its nine Addressable Memory
Registers, and it gives you a "Last X" Register for error correction or
multiple operations on the same number.
3. It displays up to 10 significant digits in either fixed-decimal or.
scientific notation and automatically positions the decimal point through-
out its 200-decade range.
Our HP-35 is the other. It handles 22 functions, has one Addressable
Memory Register and also displays up to 10 digits in either fixed-decimal
or scientific notation. It's the second most powerful pre-programmed
pocket-sized scientific computer calculator.
Both of these exceptional instruments are on display now. If you're
looking for unprecedented calculating capacity for your money, by all
means see and test them.
