NEW YORK (AP) - The nation's
biggest city could face one of its biggest
messes later this week with strikes
threatened against its vast rail-and-bus
transit system, its most vital commuter
railroad and its major daily
Transit officials got a temporary
restraining order yesterday against a
transit strike, and there was already an
injunction against a rail walkout. But.
such legalities have proven ineffective
in past confrontations.
The intention of at least one publisher
to continue t newspaper production
without union help if necessary was
pointed up Sunday with the printing of a
test edition of the New York Post. The
48-page tabloid, which was not for sale,
was turned out by management and
non-union volunteers to demonstrate
they could do the job..
THE AFTERNOON Post and the
city's two big morning papers, the
Daily News and The New York Times,
face Thursday night contract deadlines
with 10 unions. Editorial and several
craft groups already have authorized
Of potentially greater public impact,
24 hours later, is the transit deadline. A
strike would shut down municipal bus
and subway lines and put five private
bus companies out of action. Together
they carry nearly ,five million
passengers every weekday.
The subway and bus workers voted
Sunday after Matthew Guinan,
president of the Transport Workers
Union, said management was still in-
sisting any pay increase had to come
out of "give-backs" such as elimination
of night differentials, lunch-hour pay,
and some overtime.
A bus and subway strike crippled the
city for 12 days in 1966.
TRAINMEN ON the Long Island Rail
Road are set to strike in a dispute over
elimination of a second brakeman-
ticket puncher on many trains.
Management maintains that having a
second man is feather-bedding.
A city transit and LIRR' strike
coming at the same time would mean
that no combination of alternate mass
transportation would be available. In
the past, the 235,000 regular riders of a
struck LIRR could use city transit for
at least part of their trips, while many
Queens and Brooklyn riders have used
the LIRR as a partial alternate in city

In the final breakdown, physical
improvements will receive only 16 per-
cent of the CDBG funds under the
recommended staff budget. This figure
compares to 23 percent for physical im-

Under the taff's proposed budget,
the amount spent on public 'ser-
vices-including the Model Cities
program and child care-will be the
same percentage of the CDBG budget
as was allocated last year, or 31 percent
of the total.
The CDBG staff's proposed budget is,
however, only a recommendation.

April 17 on how the CDBG funds should
IN A TWIST of political alliances at
last night's preliminary budget
reading, Councilman Wendell Allen (R-
First Ward) proposed an addendum to
the recommended budget that would
allocate $200,000 for the construction of
a new facility to house the Model Cities
Two weeks ago, Allen helped kill a
similar proposal by Democrats who
moved to channel $450,000 for the new
facility. At that time, Allen objected to
that amount of money being spent on a
single building, which he said would be.
inaccessible to far away areas of the
Last night, Allen introduced an
amendment "allowing the (Council)
staff to search for a site for a new
facility in the area of the present
ALLEN'S MOTION, however, was
ruled inappropriate and out of order,
since the money for the new building
would come from funds from the last
three year's CDBG budgets and the
resolution on the floor dealt with next
year's proposed budget.
Allen said his change of heart came
about after listening to Doretta Taylor,
director of the Model Cities Dental
Clinic, read a prepared statement to
Council during the audience par-
Taylor had told the Council of the
poor condition of the dental clinic's
present facility, the second floor of a
house on Spring Street. "We need a
building very badly," she said.
Allen then moved to allocate $200,000
for the building, saying, "I would like'to
take into consideration Mrs. Taylor's
Some, however, interpreted Allen's
political conversion more to thoughts of
next week's election than to a true
change of heart. Allen faces a tough
fight for reelection in his heavily

Four full years of the 55-mile-an-hour
speed limit in the United States resulted
in the saving of 36,000 lives, reports the
National Safety Council. Motor vehicle
accidents killed 55,511 persons in 1973,
46,402 in 1974 and claimed 45,853 lives in
1975. Deaths totaled 46,700 in 1976 and
the 1977 figure is expected to be 47,000.
