talism to turn this depression
arov'nd." Signorelli said the U.S.
is on the verge of a "devastat-
ing economic collapse" and is
already going through a broad-
er deterioration of social serv-
ices because of economic ills.
He cited a recent cut in New
York social services which
took away money for the in-
spection of incoming ships for
poisoned rats - at a time when
bubonic plague has been report-
ed in South America and other
parts of the world.
Though a leftist group, the
Labor Party's opposition to
Democrats is even more fiery
than to Republicans.
"(The Republicans') threat is
simply their incompetence," he
said. "We see the Democratic
party as being much more
dangerous . . . This stuff with
zero-growth and counter cul-
ture has really messed up" the
socialist movement. r
Signorelli took pains to em-
phasive that the Labor Party re-
jects many of the leftist move-
ments of the Sixties as "syn-
thetic radicalism". The party,
he said, is devoted to a kind of
massive industrial progress
which would protect the en-
vironment and develop present
resources to a greater extent
than capitalist nations.

Ford said Gen. Brown had
made imprudent and ill-advised
statements. The most recent
controversy over Brown stems
from his statement that Israel
is a military burden to the Unit-
ed States. But Ford said Brown
has been a fine chairman of the
Joint Chiefs of Staff. He said
he hopes and trusts that Brown
won't speak imprudently again.
