MONDAY, OCTOBER 23, 1967 TEN CENTS Ford Okays Three-Year Contract Million Auto Pay Pact Reached Anti-War Victory Claimed WASHINGTON (UPI) -A once-massive antiwar rally of more than 50.000 neared an end Sunday with only a subdued corporal's guard of less than 300 demonstrators sitting in the chilly dark near the Pentagon while their leaders claimed a victory" for the cau.se. The armed troops standing guard at the Pentagon entran- ces were almost bored as night settled over the scene of Saturday's tumultuous clash with the war protesters which saw at least 47 injured and 443 arrests of defiant, sometimes unruly, demonstrators. Leaders of the antiwar mobilization held a news conference in which they charged brutality on the part of the security forces that battled a miliant phalanx of the antiwar throng who tried to invade the Defense Depart- ment's vast "nerve center" Saturday afternoon. They also accused federal authorities of illegally denying the arrested their constitutional right to counsel and claimed newsmen were guilty of "inac- curacies and distortions" in their coverage of the rally. David Dellinger, organizer of the two-day protest who was arrested and fined during Saturday's uproar, told news- men the outpouring represented to him "a tremendous victory" which would stimulate a "new movement" for peace among the American people. Casualty Toll Mounts In Israel Ship Attack JERUSALEM (UPI) Offi- cials Sunday reported 99 crew- men killed, wounded and missing in the sinking of the Israeli destroyer Eilat by Soviet-supplied missiles fired with an accuracy previously believed beyond the ability of the Egyptian armed forces. Israeli Navy Commander Schlomo Harmel said the Eilat was sunk Saturday by direct hits from three Komar missiles of the most modern Soviet sea- to-sea type. He said it was believed the first time the Soviet missiles had been used in battle anywhere in the world The missiles were believed to have been fired from Egyptian warships inside or near Port Said against the Eilat which was on patrol about 14 miles away off Roman: in Israeli- occupied Sinai Peninsula. Cairo Radio said the Eilat was sunk in a "naval engage- ment." The semi-official Cairo newspaper Al Ahram said two missile-carrying Egyptian war- ships "surrounded the destroyer the minute it entered" Egyptian territorial waters. (Foreign Ministry sources in Cairo said the U.A.R. will complain to the United Nations of Israeli's alleged violation of Egyptian territorial Harmel said the first missile hit the Eilat amidships and a second exploded in the engine room, touching off fires. Harmel said that when the Egyptians learned the destroyer was still afloat, they fired two more missiles. The Eilat capsized and sunk a few- minutes after a hit from one of the shells, he said. The other exploded in the water, where crewmen were struggling to stay afloat and may have been "deliberately" aimed to cause casualties among the helpless men, Harmel said. The Eilat was manned by 202 officers and crewmen. Officials said 15 were killed, 48 wounded and 36 were missing. They said a massive sea and air search was still underway and casualty figures might be revised. Harmel said the Eilat was attacked when it had reached the westernmost limit of patrol routes Israeli ships have following routinely since the end of the June 5-10 war. The destroyer and its sister ship were the two biggest ships in the Israeli navy. Premier Levi Eshkol met with his cabinet and discussed the incident, but it was noted that the cabinet meets regularly on Sundays anyway. Israel formally informed the U.N. Security Council of the incident Saturday night, term- ing it of the ''utmost gravity." It did not ask for a council session, however. Steel Haulers Continue Vote On Revised Contract Proposal PITTSBURGH haulers were deciding Sunday whether to accept a revised proposal adopted by 150 truck- ing companies or continue their lengthy, violence marked strike in eight states. The proposal, worked out by an interstate mediation panel last weekend, was accepted by steel haulers in Cleveland Friday night and rejected Saturday nigh: in Erie. Pa. Strikers in the Pittsburgh area, who formed one of the strongest factions, rejected the proposal by 57 per cent. Leaders refused to disclose the number of ballots cast, but they had expected between 500 and 1.000 10 attend the meeting Sunday afternoon. In Pleasantville. Pa.. Steel- haulers voted 142 to 25 in favor of the package. Two large groups in Gary, Ind.. and Chicago were sched- uled to vote Monday. William Kusley. Gary. Ind., national chairman of the Steel Haulers Protest Committee, said results of the widespread voting would be made known at a news conference Monday at the committee's headquarters in Gary. Strike leaders withheld any recommendation for acceptance or rejection. Two weeks ago they had strongly recommended acceptance of an earlier settle- ment proposal, and it subse- quently was approved over- whelmingly by the striking driv- ers but they were rejected by the trucking companies. The trucking companies ap- proved the revised proposal last Wednesday. Despite the lack of a recommendation, hopes for a settlement of the strike early this week appeared brighter. Largest Wage Hike On Record By DAM DW. CHUTE DETROIT Motor Co. and the United Auto Workers agreed before dawn Sunday on the most expensive contract in the history of auto labor three-year pact worth more than million. For the average auto worker at Ford, the pact calls for wage increases that will jump his annual income from the present average of to three years from now. For the entire auto if the union gets General Motors and Chrysler Corp. to follow the Ford will mean a package worth billion in the third year alone. UAW President Walter P. Reuther won a version of his much publicized guaranteed annual income proposal. The plan, an extension of current unemployment benefits, would allow seinor workers to be laid off for up to one year but still collect near 95 per cent of their usual paychecks. Reuther, facing reporters for the first time since a news blackout began 12 days earlier, was obviously tired but happy after the final 14-hour bargain- ing session which came on the heels of a 31-hour marathon the day before. He said the agreement was a "milestone." "The wage increase is the largest ever negotiated by the UAW with any major corpora- tion and the wage gains of both production and skilled trades workers will make Ford work- ers among the highest pa'd industrial workers in the Reuther said. Reuther said the union won "twice as much" from Ford as the company, and the industry, had offered initially when talks began three months ago. Ford Vice President Malcolm Demise denied Reuther's claim but did not offer an .idea of how much was won compared to what was offered.

The strikes were the first against Haiphong since last Wednesday when typhoon Caria slammed into North Vietnam's Red River Valley and covered the Haiphong area with heavy clouds and driving rain. The U.S. command, in its Monday morning communique, said Navy F4 Phantom and F8 Crusader jets took part in the Sunday mission. The Nui Dong Navy base is a haven for torpedo boats that patrol the waters around the vital port, a major funnel for war .supplies reaching North Vietnam from other Communist nations. Pilots reported inflicting heavy destruction on the base and a fuel storage area nearby which feeds the torpedo vessels. The American raiders rained tons of bombs on the main Haiphong railroad yards, 1.7 miles from the point regarded as the center of the city, and pilots said they left the target covred with smoke that rose a mile into the sky. The yards were first hit on Sept. 12 in the intensifying campaign to isolate Haiphong. The air war report said bombs and rockets destroyed three antiaircraft emplacements protecting Haiphong and heavily damaged four others. More Venus Data Collected P (UPD- America's Manner o beamed hack its c-olkvti'd data for the time .Sunday as scien- tists prepared to tell the world what thr discovered about the plant Venus during its fly-by. Control personnel at ihe .let Propulsion Laboratory have tailed a news conference Monday to explain the highly- technical informal ion gained from the space shot. A spokesman for JPL said the da'a returned by Mariner 5 would be a "good cross-check" of gathered by the Soviet Union's historic landing on Venus last week. 'And in some cases we'll have more the spokesman said. He said the second play-back of tape-recorded data was to insure that scien- had not missed a beep of information about the cloud- shrouded planet.
