Industry estimates place Ford's
hourly labor casts at $21.17 in wages
and fringe benefits. In the 1979 round of
bargaining, auto industry workers won
a total of 26 paid personal holidays over
the life of the three-year contract.

As further evidence of the hard times,
the five major U.S. automakers repor-
ted Thursday that indefinite layoffs will
soar this week to 227,950 workers from
last week's 214,700. And those figures
do not include the more than 50,000
blue-collar jobs lost for good through
attrition sice the big slump began in the
spring of 1979.
In the last industry sales report, Ford
lost ground to GM and Chrysler Corp. in
the share of the U.S. car market, and
Thursday Ford announced it would not
pay a divident to stockholders during
the January-March quarter of 1982.
That will mark the first time Ford
has omitted a quarterly divident since
the company changed from family
ownership to public stock sales in 1956.
Ford lost more than $700 million in
the first nine months of 1981.

ROME (AP) - Terrorist hoaxes to
mislead authorities and spurious tips
from' well-meaning people have
spawned a series of conflicting and of-
ten false reports about the search for
kidnapped U.S. Army Brig. Gen.
They also have given rise to
speculation that the Red Brigades kid-
nappers are deliberately trying to
make Italian and U.S. security forces
ONE ANONYMOUS caller told police
yesterday that Dozier had been killed
and dumped in a lake north of Venice.
But a police search turned up nothing
and police said the caller was probably
a compulsive liar.
"Investigators are back to square
one," headlined one Milan daily after
authorities brushed aside reports of a
major break in the -Dozier probe
following a weekend sweep of Red
Brigades hideouts in Rome.
Authorities also deny Italian news
media reports that investigators were
following "ia precise trail" in their
search for the gang's "people's prison"
where Dozier is said to be held.
ANOTHER FACTOR has been the
lack of a centralized authority to
provide official information, and the
result is sometimes contradictory
OIL CITY, Pa. (AP) - A cylinder
containing a radioactive material that
could produce a fatal dose of radiatin
with only one hour's exposure was
returned intact yesterday by a plumber
who picked up up after it fell from a
truck, police said.
"From all indications, it was not
opened. It looks like everything is OK,"
said Gary Sanborn, a spokesman for
the Nuclear Regulatory Commission in
King of Prussia, Pa.
LT. GARY Dauberger said Oil City
police were called at 5:45 p.m. after
plumber Clifford Woodworth and his
boss, Leroy Collins, heard news reports
about the potential danger.
Police said Woodworth, of nearby
Seneca, picked up the cannister at an
intersection in Oil City while on his way
to work. He then put the cylinder in his
boss' van, where it stayed untouched
until police were called.
"My men isolated the area in
minutes...checked it out and found it
was not open," Dauberger said.
THE NRC SAID the 10-inch-long, blue
steel cylinder contained iridium 192, an
isotope so radioactive it could kill
someone exposed to it for an hour.
If the cylinder were opened, "one
would expect severe injury to the hands
in seconds, radiation burns, and
possibly fatal exposure in less than an
hour," said NRC spokesman Karl
The radioactive material was used by
Consolidated X-ray, of New Jersey, to
X-ray pipeline welds.
"IT'S BACK IN their hands,"
Collins said Woodworth thought the
cylinder was a tool because it was
wrapped with a steel cable.
"He thought it was a plumber's
snake. He put it in his car and when we
got to the job, he put it in my truck.
Nobody touched it. It never moved. We

Unidentified "friends" of the general
were reported to have put up a $1.7
million reward for information leading
to his release. At first, both the Interior
Ministry and the U.S. Embassy denied
the existence of the fund, but the fund's
existence was later confirmed by
NATO officials and Verona authorities.
It is still not clear who the general's
"friends" are. Italian news agencies
speculated that the CIA might be in-

Among those providing bits and
pieces of official information in Verona
are the NATO command, anti-
terrorism police known as Digos, para-
military police, or Carabinieri, and the
office of the prefect, the national
government representative. In Rome,
there are the Interior Ministry, Digos,
Carabinieri, the prosecutor's office,
and the U.S. Embassy.
Nearly a month after the 51-year-old
general was abducted by the guerrilla
group from his Verona apartment, no
arrests have been made or warrants
issued in the case.
