Earlier in the day, Arthur Vander, a
member of Physicians for Social
Responsibility, told the audience that
political leaders do not understand
that "we have moved beyond
deterrance" in arms control measures.
The arms-race is not hopeless, Van-
der said, adding that union members
must be told that even employed
workers can play a significant role in
changing attitudes.
VANDER SAID the Soviet Union has
been educating its civilian population to
the realities of nuclear war, and
American and Soviet doctors were
allowed television time to discuss the
medical effects of a nuclear war.
During that program, Vander said,
an American doctor said Soviet citizens
know the civil defense precautions
taken by the government would be
useless in a nuclear war.
Vander said the statement was not
censored.
IN THE conference's keynote ad-
dress yesterday morning, United Auto
Workers Secretary Treasurer Ray
Majerus said victims of unemployment
will make up a majority of the armed
forces in a military crisis.
We said military spending is higher
than needed, and that it is "bleeding the
poor."
Majerus called for a national
industrial policy and more legislation
against plant closings.
Detroit City Councilwoman Maryann
Mahaffey stressed in her talk that the
function of government, according to
the Constitution is "to promote the
general welfare."
She said that the current ad-
ministration is not fulfilling that
obligation, and is instead starving the
poor to feed the military.
Bernard Firestone, Secretary
Treasurer of the Chicago and Central
States Joint Board AFL-CIO, said in his
opening remarks that there is a direct
correlation between the employment
level and the strength of the nation.
He said he hopes the conference will
carry a message to the rank and file, a
message that "the American dream
can come true through communication
and education."
The conference will continue today
with a speech on U.S. security needs by
retired Navy Captain James Bush and
workshops on military spending and
employment.
Cambridge
voters reject
nuclear ban
proposal

stitution or other entity shall, within the
City of Cambridge, engage in work the
purpose of which is the research,
development, testing, evaluation,
production, maintenance, storage,
transportation, and/or disposal of
nuclear weapons or the components of
nuclear weapons."
If passed, it would have taken effect
in October 1985 and would have
provided fines or jail terms for
violators.
SUPPORTERS defended the
measure as a logical extension of the
nuclear freeze movement - a legal and

practical way for ordinary citizens to
influence the superpower arms race.
They are hoping voters will approve
similar proposals in California,
Wisconsin, Michigan, and Oregon -
which they see as a boost to a renewed
effort in Cambridge when elections are
held in two years.
"If I were Draper Lab, I would not be
resting easily," said Schreuer. "Given
the huge amount of money (they) put
into the campaign, the victory was very
narrow."
HE SAID documents filed with the
Secretary of State indicated opponents
spent $123,000 on the campaign, com-
pared with $23,000 by proponents.
"There was only one issue that got to
us," Schreuer said. "That was the jobs
issue. The opposition used emotional.
scare tactics, saying 70 companies
would leave Cambridge - that was just
a farce.'
He said in two years, the proposal will
be worded so "it cannot be taken out of
context."

U.S. promises to defend S. Korea

From AP and UPI
TOKYO - President Reagan headed
today for Seoul to offer assurances that
the United States will rush to South
Korea's defense in the event of a
military strike by North Korea, which
U.S. officials said "would be a very
grave and foolish mistake."
After bidding farewell to Japanese
Prime Minister Yasuhiro Nakasone,
Reagan set out for South Korea, the
second and final stop of his six-day
Asian trip, leaving behind largely
unresolved trade differences with
Japan.
A SENIOR administration of-
ficial, speaking privately, said a major
purpose of Reagan's visit is to
dramatize the U.S. security commit-
ment in South Korea, where 39,000

American troops are stationed to help
keep the peace.
Reagan will visit the Demilitarized
Zone separating North and South Korea
on Sunday and will meet with U.S. in-
fantrymen. Sixty Americans have been
killed along the DMZ since the 1953 ar-
mistice.
Asked what message Reagan hoped
his visit would send to North Korea, the
official said "that the United States is
committed to the defense . of South
Korea and that any military action by
North Korea would be a very grave and
foolish mistake."
SECRETARY OF State George
Shultz said "North Korea does seem to
be on a campaign to raise tensions to
the maximum degree." "But the pre-
sident will, of course, keep his cool and,

at the same time, he is not a person who
will be intimidated," he added. -
Shultz said Reagan "will want to ex-p
press his outrage at the North Korean
murder of members of the South
Korean government in Burma." T
More than 100,000 security officers.
were on alert for Reagan's protection.
during his 21/2-day visit to South Korea..
