SANTIAGO, Chile (AP)-President
Augusto Pinochet said yesterday he and
his military junta would have surren-
dered power to "certain" elected
people if the voters had turned down his
bid for eight more years of
authoritarian rule.
Instead, Chileans approved
Pinochet's new constitution in Thur-
sday's referendum by a more than 2-1
marg in.
The final vote total was given as
4,203,615, or 67 per cent, for the con-
stitution and 1,891,332, or 30 per cent,
opposed. Election officials said
6,268,652 of an eligible 6.75 million
voters cast their "yes" or "no" ballots,
but 173,705 were ruled invalid.
THE VICTORIOUS Pinochet told a
news conference that if the voters had
rejected the new constitution, "the
military government would have had to
continue on for a short time, elections of
centain persons would have been called
and we would have returned to the
barracks." He did not elaborate.
Pinochet was the army commander
who led the bloody coup that ousted the
elected government of the late Marxist
President Salvador Allende on Sept. 11,
The 64-year-old general had not said
before the balloting what his military
government planned to do if the voters
defeated the new constitution.

Polish workers complain

From AP and UPI
WARSAW, Poland-The new Polish
government stepped up its criticism of
dissidents yesterday and sources said
more strikes have broken out at fac-
tories where workers charged they
were being harassed for joining the new
free trade unions.
At the same time, officials said
Communist Party boss Stanisla Kania

Leonid Brezhnev-another sign that
Moscow has given its stamp of approval
to the new Polish regime.
WORD OF THE impending summit
came a day after Moscow announced it
was stepping up economic aid to Poland
to help it pay for the crippling series of
summer strikes and the unprecedented
concessions the workers won to end
them-including the right to form in-
dependent labor unions and to strike in
the future.
Meanwhile, President Carter an-
nounced yesterday he has approved
$670 million in credit guarantees to help
Poland buy U.S. farm commodities in
the year ahead.
The guarantees, which insure U.S.
exporters against losses due to foreign
bank defaults, are the largest ever
awarded to a single country, the White
House said.
THE POLISH government is expec-
ted to buy about 4 million metric tons of
feed grains, wheat, and soybeans

against unions

during the 1980-81 marketing year.
A White House statement said a cold,
wet summer, climaxed by severe
flooding in July, caused Poland's crops
to fall short of expectations. The com-
modity Credit Corp.. guarantees will
help Poland continue to buy American
grains to make up its anticipated shor-

Dissident sources said strikes con-
tinued in a number of towns and cities
and they reported that workers at a ball
bearing plant in Kielece, south of War-
saw, walked out over management
threats against joining free trade
The sources said management posted
a notice on the plant bulletin board
saying those workers who joined 'the
new free trade unions would lose
various allowances such as loans, par-
tly financed vacations and extra finan-
cial aid.
THE ORGANIZERS of the new free
trade unions charged the authorities
were violating their agreement with the

workers because of the harrassment
and attacks on dissidents.
A free trade union organizer in Gdan-
sk-the seaport center of the, summer
labor revolt-said: "In many places,
even in Gdansk, people who want to join
the new trade unions come across
various difficulties. Some officials at
their jobs tell them not to join the

called on the Communist Party to
beware attempts by "anti-socialist for-
ces" to align themselves with-and
take advantage of-the "legitimate'
protests by the workers.
It cited Jacek Kuron, leader of the
dissident committee for Social Self
Defense, by name as a leader of the
Kuron himself said he thought the a-
tacks on dissidents would increase in
coming weeks.
All of this was seen as a warning that
the regime has decided it must live with
labor reform but will not tolerate a
political challenge to the authority of
the Communist Party.

opening in the earth's crust that emits

HANSON SAID THERE was very lit-
tle body passing after the letter was
mailed last year, and the ad-
ministration sent similar notices this
year hoping to avoid passing up in-
"I was amazed," she said. "It worked
better than we had ever hoped. The
students responded in very adult and
cooperative ways."
Purdue University has not been so
fortunate in its efforts to stop passing
up. "It's awfully hard to take action
against a certain individual when there
are so many involved," said Tom
McHenry, assistant dean for students.
"frightening and degrading experien-

would have the courage to stop and

At Michigan State University,
President Cecil Mackey has coor-
dinated a committee of students and
administrators to look into the total
aspect of crowd behavior at sporting
"There is a growing resentment
toward body passing," said Captain
Andrew McEntee from Michigan,
State's public safety department.
"There are some males who will ac-
tively stop it." He said that in spite of
the growing resentment the practice
seems to be increasing in Spartan

A Notre Dame spokesman had never
heard the phrase "passing up" before.
"It's not that big of a deal here that it
has acquired a nickname," he said.
At the University of Illinois, Sports
Information Assistant Dale Ratermann
called the practice "real neat." He said
passing up was a tradition at Illinois.
"SOME WOMEN GET a little upset,"
Ratermann continued, "but I'd take it
as a compliment." %
Passing up appears to be a rare oc-
currence outside of the Big Ten. A
spokeswoman for University of
Southern California and former

University of Michigan graduate said
she was surprised when she noticed
that nobody passed up spectators at
USC garhes. She suggested that USC's
strong crowd control force and "real"
seats (instead of bleachers) help
discourage would be grabbers.
