UAW head criticizes
U.S. auto import policy
GRAND RAPIDS (UPI)-The United States is now expor-
ting dollars instead of goods, United Auto Workers President
Owen Bieber told the Grand Rapids Economic Club yester-
The over-valued American dollar is costing the country
millions in trade each year, Bieber said, and is the key factor
in the current $37 billion trade deficit with Japan.
BIEBER SAID the Reagan administration decision to
allow the voluntary auto-import restraint agreement with
Japan to expire will cost up to 200,000 "good-paying jobs,"
but will not translate into lower prices for consumers.
"Don't look for a bonanza in reduced car prices," Bieber
said. "The facts are just not there to support that contention,
and, in fact, small car prices rose only about half of the Con-
sumer Price Index under the voluntary restraints."
Bieber said a UAW-backed bill will be introduced in
Congress after the Easter recess aimed at attacking the
current $37 billion trade deficit with Japan.
"WE HAVE TO start ratcheting that figure down to a level
resembling fair trade," he said, adding that the proposed
legislation would apply "an X-factor" annually to reduce the
deficit, plus limit to no more than one-third the total trade
with any one nation in a single sector.
Of the recent decision by the Canadian UAW to split from
the U.S. arm, Bieber said about $36 million in Canadian
dollars would be set aside from the union's strike fund to
protect Canadian members against their employers and that
the Canadians will, in turn, repay about $23 million at
American rates for union buildings, local union mortgages
and per capita loans.
"It's about a wash and makes good common sense on this
side of the border, too," he said.

the ultimate sin. "I missed two classes
to watch this game," he said.
Similar hysteria was rampant
throughout campus-there were even
reports of teaching assistants can-
celling class to watch the game.
AT HAIR TRENDS Barber Shop,
employees showed their spirit by
bringing in a TV and setting a Tiger hat
next to it. Owner Bob Cantin ever
thought of "closing shop and bringing in
a keg" for the game.
At Charley's, Tiger fans showed up
for beer, pizza, and nine innings of
Tiger-Indian action. LSA junior John
Bacon explained that he wasn't able to
make it to a World Series. game last
year when the Tigers became world
champions, but he did "get a piece of
right field." LSA junior Mike Collins
skipped class to come to Charley's for
the game, but fortunately the class he
missed was "only French." His
brother, LSA senior Dave Collins,
agreed with Mike's attitude. "I don't
have class on Mondays, but if I did, I
wouldn't be there," he said. -
