DETROIT (AP) - "If the strike
,,goes - well, not even too much
r~longer - we will be completely
'shut down," said General Motors
llCorp. Chairman Roger Smith.
GM yesterday laid off 16,700
1c workers until further notice in
-,2Michigan, Kentucky, and Missouri
due to parts shortages caused by the
-17,700-worker strike at a Delco
Electronics plant in Kokomo, Ind.

;,,,shutdowns were expected among
gGM's 35 North American assembly
'j plants later yesterday, but many
plant managers and spokesmen said
.they believed they could keep
; working until the end of the, week.
"We're all prepared to get laid off
r;tomorrow," said Bill Bowers,
president of United Auto Workers
{,,Union Local 1112 at the 8,000-
worker Lordstown, Ohio complex.
Talks resumed yesterday morn-
nkg between representatives of
striking UAW Local 292, the UAW
international, GM, and Delco
g Electronics. No further information
W4was available on progress of the
discussions, said GM spokesman
John Mueller.
THE TALKS were moved to
3icDetroit Wednesday so both sides
i'v'1could have easy access to infor-
:;ramation they might need, said UAW
lan spokesman Bob Barbee.
The Kokomo plant workers have
- been on strike since Monday, when
&r talks failed to resolve a dispute over
subcontracting of some jobs and
transfer of radio production to
r Mexico.
The plant ships electronic parts
w such as radios, heat sensors, and
fa onboard computer components on a
"just-in-time" basis as they are or-
dered, so little or no inventory of
the parts existed when the strike
It took little more than 24 hours
for the parts shortage to force GM
to begin shutting down assembly
lines and sending-workers home.
The strike is the first to test the
just-in-time inventory system that

Supreme Soviet on Wednesday
approved a law allowing citizens to
moonlight as self-employed taxi
drivers, restauranteurs, and repair -
men to earn extra cash in the
socialist economy.
The new law follows up on
Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev's
effort to bolster consumer services
plagued by shortages of both goods
and manpower.
It will legitimize some services
already in high demand on the
illegal market, which provides such
consumer services as car repair.
Any Soviet citizen 18 years or

individual enterprises to make up
local shortages, and local'officials
