UAW and Ford to resume talks

DETROIT (UPI)- Ford Motor Co. btoke off early
contract talks with the United Auto Workers yester-
day, apparently miffed at the short notice it was
given of a General Motors-approved plan linking con-
tract concessions to cuts in car prices.
Peter Pestillo, Ford's vice president for labor
relations, said the automaker would resume
bargaining with the union this afternoon following a
meeting of the company's board of directors.
PESTILLO SAID the company will use the time to
study a plan presented to it by the union that has
already been adopted by GM. Ford-Chairman Philip
Caldwell was to meet with reporters yesterday.

Usually during negotiations, each company
receives proposals from the union at the same time.
But UAW President Douglas Fraser said the union
had no obligation to tell Ford of the plan earlier since
the automaker did not help develop the concept. GM's
approval of the proposal will help the UAW in its
dealings with Ford, he added.
"IT'S A BARGAINING advantage, we think. We'll
find out later on," Fraser said.
Meanwhile, Fraser said the union was "dismayed,
disturbed and shocked" by concessions proposals
made by GM yesterday but acknowledged the offers
were part of the bargaining process.
The union leader said following a bargaining

session with GM that the No. 1 automaker's proposals
involve concessions "everywhere" in the union con-
tract, but he refused to reveal a dollar figure.
"It's a helluva lot bigger than a breadbox," he said.
The historic proposal adopted by GM on Tuesday-
the second day of early contract talks with the auto
industry-calls for the automaker to give car buyers
rebates equal to the amount of concessions made by
the union.
GM had been discussing the plan with the union
since November. Ford did not get details of the plan
until GM Chairman Roger Smith was announcing his
company's agreement to go along with it.

crash, but the foul weather impeded
rescue efforts. The temperature
hovered in the 20s, and wind whipped
the river.
The airport had been closed for run-
way clearing until shortly before the
plane took off, in visibility of about a
half mile, close to the minimum
allowed. Three inches of snow had
fallen, and it was snowing heavily at the
time of the crash.
After striking the bridge, the short-
range, twin-engine jet plunged into the
water between that span and two others
carrying traffic toward the suburbs.
The bridge is less than a mile from the
airport. Some of the victims could be
seen at dusk, strapped into airliner
seats beneath the surface of the
Potomac.
THE FEDERAL Aviation Ad-
ministration said there was no initial
indication that the crash of an Air
Florida jet was linked to any break-
down in the air traffic control system.
"From preliminary information, it
has absolutely nothing to do with the air
traffic controllers," FAA spokesman
Ted Maher said of the crash into the
Potomac River.

IN BRIEF
Compiled from Associated Press and
United Press International reports
Telephone calls being
monitored in Poland
WARSAW, Poland- Big Sister is warning telephone callers their conver-
sations are "being controlled" in martial law Poland.
Since telephone service in Poland's major cities was restored last Sunday,
some numbers start a screechy voiced woman chirping: "Rozmowa Kon-
trolowana, Rozmowa Kontrolowana."
In Polish that means "the call is being controlled, the call is being con-
trolled."
Foreign journalists call the voice Big Sister-a variation on Big Brother,
the symbol of dictatorship in George Orwell's "1984."
In an announcement that telephone service would be restored within the
nation's big cities, the authorities said that the calls would be subject to con-
trol and could be cut at any time if whoever was listening deemed them
damaging to the state.
Secret FDR tapes discovered
NEW YORK- Three decades before Richard Nixon secretly recorded
conversations in the Oval Office, Franklin Delano Roosevelt did the same
thing-and those recordings survive, American Heritage magazine
disclosed yesterday.
Fourteen news conferences and seven or eight conversations late in 1940
were picked up by a microphone, hidden in Roosevelt's desk, which was con-
nected to a recorder in the White House basement, the magazine said.
The recordings contain no major historical revelations. Roosevelt is heard
discussing, among other things, the possibility of war with Japan, in-
tergration in the armed forces, and Republican presidential candidate Wen-
dell Wilkie's reputed affair with a New York woman.
Record cold wave kills 134
A Dixie snowstorm that left almost a million people without power yester-
day laid siege to the big cities of the Northeast as the death toll in the week's
record cold wave reached 134.
Georgia Gov. George Bushee declared a state of emergency in Atlanta
which was immobilized by half a foot of snow and ordered out 230 National
Guardsmen to aid stranded motorists and help clear out thousands of aban-
doned cars.
The storm that had charged out of Texas swung up the Eastern Seaboard,
closing schools in Washington, Baltimore, Philadelphia and the suburbs of.
New York City.
Up to 10 inches of snow was forecast in some areas around New York City.
In the West, snowdrifts 40 feet high were hampering efforts to recover the
bodies of two men from Billings, Mont., who were spotted Saturday from the
air near the wreckage of their small plane atop 9,472-foot Mount Baldy in
western Montana. Broadwater County Sheriff Rick Barthule led a six-man
party up the mountain in snowmobiles yesterday in the third attempt to
retrieve the bodies.
Business ignores Reagan's
pleas for expansion
WASHINGTON- The nation's businesses, starting the year mired in
recession, intend to ignore the Reagan administration's plea for a 1982 surge
in expansion, a government survey showed yesterday.
A Commerce Department poll of executives concluded that they now plan
to actually cut back spending for new plants and equipment by 0.5 percent
this year, not counting increases due only to inflation.
Such plans can change quickly, but if "real" capital spending actually
falls this year, it would be the first such decline since the severe 1974
recession.
Top Reagan officials have said repeatedly that incentives in the multiyear
tax cut enacted in 1981 should spur investment this year and help pull the
national economy out of its second recession in two years.
Many businesses have cut production and laid off workers as the recession
has deepened, shelving at least for the present any plans to-expand.
