does it almost mechanically."
One judge denounced the choice in an
unprecedented attack on the British
author. Arthur Lundkvist, one of 17
judges of Swedish Academy, described
Golding as "a small English
phenomenon of no great interest" and
claimed other Academy members kept
him out of the decision-making process.
Lars Gyllensten, chairman of the
Nobel Committee, said there were no
irregularities in the choice of Golding.
He said there was "a large majority
supporting this year's prize-winner and
there was absolutely no cause for a
"Golding has, like many other can-
didates, been considered for many
years," Gyllensten said. "The impact
of his work has consistenly increased

MANILA, Philippines - The prospect of price increases and labor unrest
added to President Ferdinand Marcos' troubles yesterday as his political
opponents led thousands in another noisy demonstration demanding his
A new round of price hikes was expected following a 21.4 percent
devaluation of the currency Wednesday, and Labor Minister Blas Ople
acknowledged, "there will probably be some strains on industrial peace."
"We must accept that we are in a difficult situation and that there's a
possibility it will worsen a little bit more," Marcos told the nation in another
of his almost-daily television appearances.
He asked the plublic to remain calm, appealed to businessmen not to raise
prices suddenly, and said, "the present situation can be turned around."
Meanwhile, leaders of 22,000 striking Filipino workers at U.S. military
bases agreed to end a fout-day-old wage walkout. Government officials said
the U.S. authorities agreed to renegotiate wage scales.
Rear Adm. Dickinson Smith, the commander of U.S. forces in the Philip-
pines, conceded that the strike disrupted the routine, but he said that
American military and civilian personnel and their families cooked meals
and waited on tables, a few personnel were flown from Guam to help out, and
"we were able to function very well."
Officials deny Watt will resign
WASHINGTON - Senate passage of a resolution calling for Interior
Secretary James Watt's resignation would not change President Reagan's
opinion that Watt should remain in the Cabinet, a White House spokesman
One administration official, who spoke on condition that he not be named,
said Watt probably will step down in the next two weeks, in light of what looms
as a lopsided margin against him in the Republican-controlled Senate.
"Rather than be repudiated in a Senate vote, he will resign," the source
Deputy White House press secretary Larry Speakes, meanwhile, insisted
that Watt has not been asked to resign. But Speakes refused to say whether
Watt is still an effective Cabinet member.
"As far as the White House is concerned, the case is closed," Speakes said,
repeating a statement he made last week. Speakes said he had spoken to
Reagan before making the statement.
