Wage freeze hits workers TORONTO (CP) Almost Canadian workers are subjected to the wage freeze imposed by United States President Richard Nixon, Chrysler Canada Lid. at Windsor, Ont. and Douglas Air- craft of Canada Ltd., based at Malton, on the northwest fringe of Toronto, announced Thursday decisions against wage in- creases, tied to the freeze on wages and prices in the U.S. Affected will be supervi- sory and administrative em- ployees of Chrysler across Can- ada and Douglas workers. Officials at Ford Motor Co. of Canada Ltd. and General Mo- tors of Canada Ltd. said they do not plan freezes on the wages of white-collar workers, similar to those imposed by Chrysler. Chrysler said it had imposed the freeze because of a price freeze imposed by Ford and CM on 1972 model automobiles.

The company's position was put before union negotiators by a senior official of McDonnell Douglas during a meeting Wednesday. A UAW spokesman said the U.S. McDonnell official said Douglas deals with 2fi unions and is not going to make an offer to any of them, including the Canadian section, until the situation is clarified south of the border.

GREAT HARWOOD, Eng- land (AP) People living on Coronation Street are tired of being laughed at when tiiev give their address. It's a respectable English street name, but it happens also In be the name of (he lop British soap opera. Saying you come from Coro- nation Street is like telling people you live at Peyton Piace. So they want their street name changed. Preferably, they say, to "something more pleasant." Brandishing a I7-name pro- test petition, Eddie Hanvood said Wednesday of the street where he's lived for 25 years: "Someliow it seems so out of date mid tie television pro- gram doesn't help." N e i t h b o r Doris Eatough said she went on vacation and people laughed when they found out where she camo from. Coronation Street, which the producers claim is watched by 25 million people, now is into its llth year. It recounts working-class life in a drab industrial town, and much of Ihe action takes palce in the local pub.
