VIENNA, Austria-Financial experts of the Organ-
ization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC)
opened a week-long meeting yesterday to consider
whether to recommend another hik'e in the price
of oil, which has quadrupled since January, 19731
Oil ministers of the .13 OPEC countries, which con-
trol 85 per cent of oil in world trade, will meet
Sept. 24 to discuss the experts' reports comparing
the price of oil with the rate of inflation in Western
industrialized countries and the status of the dollar.
The experts were certain to conclude that the
purchasing power of oil revenues has shrunk. But
in drawing up their recommendations they were
expected to take into consideration the world eco-
nomic situation and reduced demand for oil in the
CARACAS, Venezuela - The Venezuelan Senate
yesterday passed legislation that would nationalize
the country's oil industry, most of which is operated
by U.S. oil firms. The measure was sent to the
lower house where approval is expected and then
will be sent to President Carlos Andres Perez for
signature later this week. The bill provides for the
payment of compensation not to exceed the net
book value of the companies' assests, officially
estimated at $1.1 billion. The measure also stipulates
that all the companies must hand over their con-
cessions to the state on Dec. 31. The nationalized
industry will be run by a new state oil company
called Petroleos Venezolanas. Exxon, Shell, Gulf
Pil, Mobil, Sun Oil and Texaco, the companies

affected by the move, have not objected to the take-
WASHINGTON-- Independent presidential candi-
date Eugene McCarthy told students yesterday that
the extension of the right to vote to 18-year-olds
"gives you a greater responsibility than the stu-
dents of the last generation to meet the issues
which face all citizens." Speaking at the 28th Na-
tional Student Congress in Washington, the former
senator said "those issues are less emotional than
the issues of the 1960s. Yet they are just as impor-
tant-perhaps even more important." McCarthy
added that "students were among the first to make
a moral and political judgment against the Vietnam
War and then to proceed by practical means to end
it. But the militarism which preceeded the war,
and conditioned us to enter continues even though
the war is over.,
DETROIT - Detroit garbage truck drivers ap-
proved a two-year contract yesterday, ending a
four-day strike that left about 6,000 tons of refuse
in city streets. Officials said the strike caused only
minor inconveniences and union President Joseph
Valenti said drivers returned to work as of 10 p.m.
last night. The strike ended with unanimous ratifi-
cation of a contract that included economic in-
creases ranging from $1.18 to $1.70 an hour plus a
cost-of-living clause. The walkout by the drivers

halted all trash pickups last Thursday, but did not
cause the problems recently experienced in New
York, where a sanitation workers strike resulted
in mountains of refuse in the streets. "It didn't
cause any particular health problems and there
wasn't much litter," said a spokesperson at the
city's Environmental Protection and Maintenance
The Ann Arbor Education Association (AAEA)
reached a tentative agreement for a three-year
contract with the city's Board of Education yes-
terday following marathon weekend bargaining.
The agreement calls for fixed salary increases
based on the school district's property base growth
and reduction of class size by one pupil per year
in grades 1-3. The contract also continues the
present fringe benefits. AAEA spokesman Bob Mos-
ley said, "The important thing is that we started
negotiations earlier and kept a positive tone through-
out." Ratification of the contract by teachers is
expected Sept. 2, according to Mosley.
We begin a slight warming trend today, but keep
your bedroom windows closed just the same, as
lows will dip to the unseasonal mid 40's. The rest
of the day will be partly sunny and mild, with high
temperatures in the 70's. Winds will be east to
northeast at 6-12 mph.
