Ray Eyes Recovery of Fuel Loss DES MOINES (AP) Efforts by Holdouts Fall Short By Associated Press The often-violent strike by dozens of groups of disorganized independent, truck drivers appeared all but over Monday. There were several thousand holdouts who continued to insist. they would not climb back in their rigs until diesel fuel prices are rolled back. But their numbers did not appear to be nearly enough to cause the economic hardships which resulted in a quick settlement proposal last Thursday. In Chicago, large numbers of trucks were unloading produce I at the South Water Street market. “We are quite busy down here and at least 18 trucks are presently unloading,” said one produce merchant. ‘‘Today is very different from last Monday when only four trucks were unloading.” A state trooper in Peoria, 111., reported that “the trucks are really rolling. It’s way up, it seems to be heavier than | usual.” Key federal officials said it looked to them like the strike was over. Truck traffic climbed to near prestrike levels Sunday and early Monday, and violence was down sharply. HR bv Bullets Ow states arc losing up to 2 percent.
