The violence came as the gov-
ernment's Commerce Depart-
ment reported "the best turnout
of workers since the strike be-
gan." Most factories said they
were operating- at prestrike lev-
els and, until the buses were af-
fected, all essential services
were running.
The Action Council launched
the strike to paralyze Northern
Ireland's economy and force the
British government into an all-
out crackdown on guerrillas of
the mainly Catholic Irish Re-
publican Army. Another aim
was restoration ofeProtestant
rule in Northern Ireland.
DESPITE the intimidation,
the strike faltered in the face
of a massive rejection by Ul-
ster's million-strong Protestant
majority and a tough British se-
curity clampdown.
The outlawed IRA is fighting
to force Ulster Protestants into
a reluctant union with the Cath-
olic Irish Republic.
The Rev. Paisley's detention
in Ballymena came after he and
400 supporters, farmers from
Ulster's staunchly Protestant
hinterland, sealed off the center
of the town with a tractor caval-
cade to demonstrate support for
the strike.

WASHINGTON 6P) - The United States and Great Britain plan
to make a joint new proposal on Rhodesia in a bid to transform
the rebel British colony into an independent black-ruled state by
Sept. 24, 1978, diplomatic sources said yesterday.
Diplomats of both countries said the U.S.-British plan, which
will be unveiled today, is intended primarily as a way of evolving
a constitution for Rhodesia.
THE U.S.- British strategy will focus on the goal of securing
the resignation of Prime Minister Ian Smith's Rhodesia Front gov-
ernment about three months before the independence day.
At that symbolic moment of the surrender of white domina-
tion, all power, including control of defense, law qnd order and
finance, would be handed over to a stopgap regime under a black
caretaker premier.
If American-British. aims are fulfilled, Smith's resignation
would open the way to two major developments:
. A cease-fire between the white-led Rhodesian forces who for
years have been trying vainly to crush the escalating campaign
of black guerrillas seeking power and independence by military

London's main event-a seven-

China's official Hsinhua news
agency, commenting on the eco-
nomic conference, said Tuesday
"no effective way to cope with
the situation was found at the
meeting. In spite of the opti-
mism expressed by the heads of
state about the results of the
summit, Western public opinion
doubted if the meeting could
solve the current grave eco-
nomic problems."
At a four-power minisummit
after the main economic meet-
ing, Carter and the leaders of

Britain, France and West Ger-
many warned the Soviet Union
not to threaten Berlin and re-
newed their pledges to defend
the divided city.
IN GENEVA, Carter won
praise from Assad for his ef-
forts to bring a permanent peace
to the Middle East. The Ameri-
can president said afterward:
"I was very pleased at the re-
lationship that I formed."
Meanwhile, Premiers Con-
stantine Caramanlis of Greece
and Suleyman Demirel of Tur-
key were among the leaders who
met with Carter in separate, pri-
vate sessions. Conflicts between
the two NATO neighbors have
concerned the a II i a n c e, but
there was no word on whether

Regarding Greek and Turkish

hope that the Cyprus question

MICHIGAN BELL is currently

Bell says that the trial-basis
program will be going on "for
an indefinite period."
As for the pushy salesman who
has memorized the sales pitch
for each new service, Ma Bell
insists that they merely "en-
courage" all employes to talk
up the products. "Sometimes in
our business department they
have contests," Burkette says.
