LONDON (.l', - British d o c k
strikers broke the solid front
that has shut down the nation's
ports for three weeks and vot-
ed yesterday for a partial re-
turn to work by Monday, but it
appears that more than half the
nation's 42,000 longshoremen will
still stay off the job.
Thousands of dock workers,
mainly in stimller ports,"accept-
ed settlement terms on job se-
curity and severence pay recom-
mended by their union leaders
W ednesdav.
But thousands more militant
dockers. including those in the
ns tion's two largest ports of Lon-
don and t iverpool, voted to con-
tinue their walkoit unofficially
ort defrred decision.
The partial reopening of ports
iscpected to relies e supply
hose voting for a return to
wtos rk included 2,000 dockers at
Snuthhamptost, one of Britain's
larger ports, 3,000 at Tilbury, a
major container depot on t h e
River Thames near London, and
more than 2,000 others at a doz-
en smaller ports.
Together they are enough to
break the stranglehold on t lI e
parts tbat has idled more than
5011ships, threatened the no-
tion's food supplies and cost mil-
lions of dollars in lost export
About 6,000 dockers in Liverpool
i voted to extend their strike, part-
ly because of local issues that
preceded the national stoppage,
now in its 21st day. Manchester's
11100 longshoremen also decided
to 'tay out.
Settlement termss answer a key
docklansd denmand by guarantee-
ing more unloading jobs at in-
land container depots to long-
shoremen. These had been going
to lower paid truck drivers while
dockers saw modern container
handling methods cut the tradi-
tional labor force in the ports.
i London alone, the number
of smployed dockers has drop-
ped from 24,000 to 14,000 in the
Iast ten years. The national total
is expected to fall another 10,000
to 32,000 in the next three years.
Settlement terms envision at -
least 200 more jobs at inland
container depots going to dock-
ers. In addition, the scale of sev-
erence payments will go up to a
maximum of about $9,800.

County Prosecutor William
Delhey has challenged a re-
cent Michigan Supreme Court
decision that struck down a sta-
tute allowing juveniles to be
tried as adults.
Delhey began on Tuesday the
necessary legal procedures to
ask the court to reconsider its
prior decision.
The Supreme Court ruled un-
constitutional July 26 the waiv-
ering system, which allows
judges to choose whether to try
juveniles as minors or adults.
The court said the standards
under which the waivering was
based were not specified in the
state law.
The Supreme Court decision
stemmed from the arrest of An-
drews Fields, an Ann Arbor

juvenile who was charged with
forging checks., The case was
waivered to Circuit Court for
trial, which lead to the appeal
before the. Supreme Court and
the subseqtuent ruling.
Ironically, the charges against
Fields were dropped before the
case ever reached the Supreme
Court because F i e 1 d s, 'who
turned eighteen during the ap-
peals process, was arrested for
other crimes while out on bail.
Theturrent court battle centers
on tlse legal principle.
Delhev has received backing
from Michigan Atty. General
and candidate for U. S. Senate
Frank Kelly who said yester-
day that his office trill file a
coirt brief supporting lely's

"One witch says this is the
most powerful spell, in exist-

pile stands for a characteristic,
such as your self, natural re-
sources, or clandestine secrets."
