The men stopped work to protest the dismissal of four workers who had joined the Construction and General Workers Union. Dave Graham, business manager of Local 1111. said the men were fired for joining Ihe union but company president William Borger said it was "because the work Uiey were doing had been completed." Mr. Borger said replace- ments had been found for the 80 men "but we will rehire them when other workers quit or don't prove to be good on the jobs." The agreement to rehire was reached alter Mayor Rod Sykes intervened in the dispute as an unofficial mediator.

Premier Alex Campbell ot Prince Edward Island, Iravel- ling with Goi'don Bnnnett, his attorney-general, and George Egan, his private secretary, will take a couple of days vaca'.ion en route to the conference.

The conference sessions will be closed, al1 hough reporters will be allowed in to ask ques- lions when business has been completed late Friday. Mr. Benncll said there will br- no opening statements and no final communique issued. HONG KONG (Reuler) China rejected the idea of a new Geneva conference on Indochina today and ignored the United States decision to vote for Pe- king's admission into the United Nations. Peking's hard-line stance fol- lowed apparent uneasiness among its Communist allies, particularly North Vietnam, over President Nixon's pro- jecetd trip lo China. The official Peoples Daily, quoted by Radio Peking, said it j is absi-d and ridiculous for U.S, imperialism to seek to convene a Geneva meeting such as the 1954 and 1962 conferences on In- dochina and Laos. The immediate question is not the convening of a new Geneva conference but the total, imme- diate and unconditional with- drawal of U.S troops from In- dochina, it said. President NLxon, in a speech last October, proposed an inter- national conference to deal with the Indochina conflict. Meanwhile, China's press and radio maintained silence on the Washinglon announcement that the United States will vote for Ihe seating of a Peking reprp sentative in the UN General As- sembly this year but will oppose the expulsion of Nationalist China.
