HOWEVER, many tradesmen
have complained their wage

also have griped about not

UAW President Leonard
Woodcock has said the strike
will continue if the national
pact, put together late last
Tuesday, is rejected by the
tradesmen. However, he has ex-
pressed confidence the accord
will be ratified.
In the last round of talks in
1973, Ford tradesmen rejected
the settlement and forced bar-
gainers to renegotiate provi-
sions concerning a newly ac-
quired right to refuse overtime
work. The union then declared
the pact ratified without sub-
mitting it to a second vote.
That provoked threats from
tradesmen who said they would
bolt from the UAW and set up
their own union. The leadership
placated them by promising

Palestinian gunmen raided Sy-
rian embassies in Italy and
Pakistan yesterday, apparently
hoping to avenge Syria's inter
vention against the Palestinian
guerrillas in Lebanon and to
seize hostages and force con-
cessions from Syria.
In Rome, three men with sub-
machine guns and grenades
strode into the embassy in the
fashionable Parioli district, shot
and seriously wounded a diplo-
mat and held five hostages for
two hours before surrendering
to police.

Italian police sources said the]
attackers in Rome had hoped to
take the Syrian ambassador'
hostage and then present de-
mands such as the withdrawal
of Syrian troops from Lebanon
or their surrender to Palestin-
ians and the release of 100 Pal-
estinians jailed in Syria. The
ambassador was not present.

C4RTER, WHILE not accus-
ing Ford of any wrongdoing,
has criticized long-term, federal
officials .who develop close
friendships with lobbyists, as
Ford acknowledges having done.
"I personally resent this at-
tack on my integrity," Ford
was quoted as saying in the
interview. "He knows the
charges are not true. They are
pure demagoguery.?"
In a statement issued yester-
day, Carter also assailed Ford
for trying to take credit dur-
ing the foreign policy debate
for signing a bill that imposed
tax penalties on U.S. firms that
cooperate with an Arab trade
boycott against Israel.
"He fought tooth and nail
against such a bill," said the
Carter statement, which includ-
ed a copy of a letter from
Treasury Secretary William"Si-
mon to Sen. Abraham Ribicoff,
D-Conn., a member of the Sen-
ate Finance Committee, criticiz-
ing such legislation.
"It is time that Mr. Ford
told the American people the
truth --that he has done noth-
ing meaningful to break the
back of the boycott - that he
has opposed every effort to de-
clare the boycott illegal. .
Carter said.
