"I AM A FIRM believer that the
government relies on free enterprise,"
he said, "and the best road to that is to
put the nation's auto industry back on
its feet again."
Bush said the main points in his plan
would include: -
" allowing Japanese automakers to
assemble cars in the U.S.;
* doing away with artificial trade
barriers, which he said makes it dif-
ficult to sell goods abroad;
" relieving the auto industry from
stringent federal regulations;
" employing tax incentives to
stimulate the modernization of auto
production; and,
" re-training unemployed auto
workers to get them back into the work
force if the recession continues any
longer.

The young kids, and there's a lot of
them out here today," he said, "are
worried about having to go to war. They
can be guaranteed a decade of peace,
but the only way to do that is to show
our strength."
Bush apparently struck a responsive
chord with many of the close to 1,000
people attending the festival. John
Dzurcanin, a 35-year-old sheet metal
worker from Hamtramck, said he
planned on voting for Bush because
"He'd show the rest of the world that
America isn't a nice guy.
"I immigrated from Slovakia five
years ago, and I have a brother who
still lives there," Dzurcanin continued,
"and I'll tell you, if we ever went to war
with the Communists, I'd shoot him if I
had to."
Paul Magusin, a 50-year old trim
design engineer for General Motors,
said he normally votes Democratic but
that he didn't plan to this November.
"I'd vote for Bush if he gets the
nomination, but I don't think he will,"
Magusin said.
Bush is staking just about everything
on the state's primary. Before the
voters go to the polls, the candidate will
have spent eight days campaigning in
the state, most of the time with Milliken
shadowing his every step.

TEHRAN, Iran-Foreign Minister
Sadegh Ghotbzadeh said yesterday that
America's European allies can go
ahead and slap economic sanctions on
Iran but the regime will do nothing'to
free the 53 American hostages until af-
ter the new parliament convenes next
month.
Speaking to reporters before flying
off to Pakistan for an Islamic foreign
ministers meeting, Ghotbzadeh
reiterated Iran's position on the
hostages and the sanctions that were
threatened, but delayed, by the
European Common Market.
THE FOREIGN ministers of the nine
European Economic Community
nations said last month they would join
an American economic embargo of
Iran unless "decisive progress" toward
freeing the hostages had been shown by
May 17, the date of their next meeting
in Naples, Italy.
But Ghotbzadeh said the sanctions
would not change Ayatollah Ruhollah
Khomeini's ruling to allow the new
parliament convening next month to
decide what to do with the hostages.
Asked when the parliament would
take up the crisis, Ghotbzadeh replied
"in thefuture."
HE ALSO DENIED reports that tle

EEC was trying to mediate in the crisis
to avoid having to impose, sanctions
and dismissed questions about Iran's
reaction- to the punitive measures by
saying that has been "explained in
detailin the past."
Iran has warned several times that
any nation joining the boycott would be
"forever" cut off from Iranian oil. It
also said it would turn to the Soviet
Union and the Communist Bloc for
trade.
Meanwhile, fire raged yesterday in
Iran's major oil-producing region after
a pipeline was blown up and set afire,
Tehran Radio said, in an area where
Arab rebels have been fighting for
autonomy.
The radio, quoting an official Pars
news agency report, said the pipe bet-
ween Naft-e-Shah and Kermanshah
was blown overnight and workers im-
mediately shut it down and waited for
the flames to subside before beginning
repairs. Despite firefighting efforts, the
blaze continued yesterday, it said.
Today marks the 196th day of cap-
tivity for the American hostages, and
the Islamic Foreign Ministers' con-
ference in Pakistan, to start today,
probably will try to persuade the
Iranian government to solve the
hostage issue.,
