Joint Strike The strike of the United Cement, Lime and Gypsum Workers, Local 410, against Lock Joint Pipe Co. here, reared the end of its first week today, with no sign of a settlement. Apparently both sides are wait- ing for the other to make the first move. Harvey Johnson, manager of the local plant, said this-morning the union had made no overtures to- ward a resumption of negotia- tions. Johnson reaffirmed the company's willingness to .runk without Americans. After some miles the two Amer- icans stopped to fix the tire and asked an East German for as- sistance. East German police soon caught up, however, and arrest- ed the East German. A message to U.S. liaison head- quarters at Potsdam resulted in another American staff car ar- riving to help. U.S. officials said no further in- formation could be given out because of action in progress, but it was reported U.S. military of- ficials were making a strong pro- test to Soviet East German border guards fired on a.'British military vehicle just outside Berlin on March. 10, seriously wounding the driver.-The Soviets have not yet replied to a British protest. The United States, Britain and France each have liaison missions at Soviet headquarters in Pots- dam, and in turn the Soviets have missions at American, British and French headquarters in West Ger- many. The Western staff cars, identi- fied by big plates in Russian, freely roam East German terri- tory normally off -limits to West erners. i ruutuug The East German regime has crossjng the picket hurled accusations of espionage at j0jnt piant. the military missions. Red boss Walter Ulbricht appeared at a news conference in 1960 loaded down with maps and' photographs he claimed were aggressive war plans captured from American and British liaison officers. He demanded that they be thrown out of East Germany. The Soviets did not follow through. They also have three missions in West attached to the U.S., British and French military headquarters there. Soviet officers buzz around West ate. A union spokesman told the NEWS the company had made no offer of negotiation. Johnson said he felt the union should make the first move since union representatives had "walk- ed out" on .previous talks. Clyde Brock, Wapanucka, union representative had told a NEWS reporter earlier that the com- pany had offered a three-cent per hour .raise across the board; Brock said that the union is.ask- .ing reasonable- wages, and -that 'they did 'not con- sider the "three-cent offer "rea- sonable." Meanwhile. Lock Joint is con- tinuing to make pipe for the Okla- homa. City-Atoka water line, with production running at about'two- according to Johnson. The manager said that a few of the union men who struck have come back to work and that "many new men" have been hired.

Some boats have also the river as far as Calvin, where it empties into the Canadian.
