Reagan: Poland
situation tense

From AP and UPI
WASHINGTON-President Reagan
said yesterday the current unrest in
Poland is "very tense," and a State
Department official said "the situation
seems to be falling apart in Poland."
The president's remarks to reporters
followed a more formal White House
statement expressing his "growing
concern" over the developments in the
Soviet bloc nation where a government
crackdown is feared and Warsaw Pact
maneuvers, thought to be ending, have
been continued indefinitely.
"WE ARE similarly concerned that
the Soviet Union may intend to under-
take repressive action in Poland," said
the White House statement read by
press secretary Jim Brady.
The statement-warning that any
suppression of the Polish people would
have "grave consequences" for East-
West relations-was issued following a
meeting of the National Security Coun-
cil.
The president later spoke briefly to
reporters after attending a White House
reception. Asked to assess the situation
in Poland, Reagan said, "Very
serious."~
MEANWHILE, last-ditch efforts to
avert Poland's first nationwide general

strike failed yesterday and the
Solidarity labor coalition said its 10
million members would walk off their
jobs for four hours today in defiance of
the Communist government.
But Solidarity leader Lech Walesa
said there was still time to avert an in-
definite general strike set to begin on
Tuesday if no agreement is reached on
a list of union demands growing out of
the police beating of union officials in
Bydgoszcz last week.
Walesa said make-or-break talks
with Deputy Prime Minister Miec-
zyslaw Rakowski would resume at
midday today after the four-hour
"warning strike" ends.
Solidarity wants the government to
fire officials responsible for the police
beating of 23 union activists in
Bydgoszcz last Thursday. One of the of-
ficials, Edward Berger, quit yesterday
and was replaced by a general, Fran-
ciszek Kaminski.
In addition to immediate punishment
for those responsible for the Bydgoszcz
incident, Solidarity wants permission
for farmers there to form their own in-
dependent trade union and annulment
of a governmentudecree giving only
half-pay to workers on strike.

ON THE EVE OF the nationwide strike by Solidarity, the independent Polish labor union, panic-striken shoppers queue up outside a butcher
shop in downtown Warsaw. The long lines formed in anticipation of a general strike set for next Tuesday.

Man rejects questions
about Atlanta murders

POUGHKEEPSIE (AP)-FBI agents
investigating the killings of 2 black
children in Atlanta yesterday examined
"lines of coincidence" between the
killings and a former mental patient
charged with abducting a 9-year-old
black youth.
But the agents' questioning of
Frankie Edmonds, 32, who is black,
was blocked by a Dutchess County
public defender.
AND WHILE FBI Director William
Webster said there were "lines of coin-
cidence," friends of Edmonds said they
had seen him in New York every day
over the year-and-a-half period of the
Atlanta killings.
Public defender Sam Collins said
Edmonds told the agents that he would
not answer questions if a lawyer was
not present. Collins. was called to the
scene and, after conferring with Ed-
monds, he said Edmonds would not an-
swer questions.
Georgia authorities were checking
out every shred of evidence they could

gather on Edmonds to determine when,
of if, he had visited the city.
EDMONDS IS being held on charges
of unlawful imprisonment for seizing
the 9-year-old black child from a
playground and locking him in a truck
with Georgia license plates.
It was later determined the truck had
been rented in New York, and bore the
Georgia tag when it was taken out.

THE CANTERBURY TALES
Chaucer's wonderful panorama of a varied assemblage of medieval people,
all on a pilgrimage to the shrine of St. Thomas, swells with vitality, so vivid
are the portraya s of knight, nun, miller friar, teacher, with their virtues and
foibles. Pasolini reveled so greatly in Chaucer's earthiness that the film was
suppressed (as obscene!) by the Italian censors. Cinema Guild shows the
uncut version, as Chaucer would have it. Rated X. Italian with subtitles. 7:00
