GDANSK, Poland (AP) A strike leader called cn
Thursday for a brief moratorium on new Polish labor
walkouts to give the government time to reconsider its
opposition to independent unions. The strikers said no ether. ..
issue would be negotiated until that question is settled.
In -Warsaw, the government denied persistent rumors that
Communist Party boss Edward Gierek had been forced to
. Gdansk strike leader Bogdan Lis told reporters the tw&2dss
would meet again Friday, and the free trade union issue would
be the only topic.
Earlier, another strike leader called for a moratorium on the
spread of new strikes.
Standing atop the gates to the strike-idled Lenin shipyards in
this Baltic Coast city, strike leader Lech Walesa told thousands
of workers: "It is not good to have Poland terrorized. The
people must have food. If we don't get results in three or four
days, then let the strikes spread.' ' '
Walesa is chairman of the Gdansk- area Joint Strike
Committee and considered a moderate among dissident labor
leaders. It was unclear whether all his colleagues would go
along with the idea of containing the strikes, which
government negotiators suggested in talks here Thursday. .
Sources inside the strike movement said some leaders were
ready to accept government concessions on wages and ether
issues, while militants were holding out for the right to
organize unions free of party control. It was net clear which
faction was dominant. .
The strikes began here two weeks ago and spread to other
port cities in northern Poland. Walkouts now have hit Warsaw
and other cities on the interior of this central European nation
of 35 million people. x
An estimated 300,000 workers are out, and Poland's already
unhealthy economy is suffering.
The strikers,' initial complaints were about wages to
compensate for higher food prices decreed by the government,
but as the strikes expanded so did their demands, which now
include calls for freedom of the press, freedom for political
prisoners and free trade unions. .
The government has given no indication the union issue is
open to negotiation, and the state-controlled press has taken
strong stands against tinkering with the Soviet-like labor
system. Strike leaders have issued conflicting accounts about
progress on that issue.
In 1970, similar labor unrest, also sparked by rising prices,
brought down Ckrek's predecessor, Wkdyshw dorr.-V..-:!;-,I,

WASHINGTON (AP) President Jimmy
Carter, pressured from all sides to develop a tax cut
plan before the election, responded .Thursday by
proposing $27.6 billion in tax reductions for
-business and individuals, effective in 1131.
However, the tax reductions and other features
cf the president's economic proposal would push
the 1S31 budget deficit over $35 billion, a major
departure from the balanced budget that Carter
unveiled with great fanfare cn March 14.
Carter's tax proposals would give individuals
$12.6 billion from a tax credit to offset the 1S31
increase in Social Security taxes and a tax deduction
to reduce the '
Businesses would receive $15 billion through tax
incentives to promote investment, including $5.3
billion from -an increase in the depreciation
allowance for the cost of plants and equipment.
Carter also announced he will support a 13-wcek
extension of unemployment' benefits for jobless
' Americans, a $1 billion program in anti-recession
assistance to cities and counties and expanded job
training. . . '
He said his program will create 1 million new jobs
by the end of 1S32, including 5C0.0C0 new jobs in
1 S3 1, most of them in private industry.
The president also announced establishment of
an Economic Revitaiization Board with members
from business, labor and the public, to develop
plans for an industrial development authority to
"help revitalize American industry."

He appointed Irving Shapiro, head cf Du Pont,
and Lane Kirklar.d, president cf the AFL-CIO, co-
Carter made optimistic claims for his program,
saying it "will put people back to work, reduce
taxes, increase public and private investment and
The total cost of the plan from the $27.6 billion
in tax reductions and $2.4 billion in spending
initiatives for 1531 is about $33 billion.
The tax cuts fall short of the $37 billion
reduction' advocated by Republican Ronald
Reagan, of which $31 billion would be for
individuals and $5 billion for businesses in 1931. It
also is less than the $33 billion approved last week
by the Senate Finance Committee.
Carter has criticized the Reagan plan, which calls
for a 30 percent reduction in tax rates over three
years, as inflationary.
However, Carter had been under heavy pressure
from congressional Democrats and other supporters
to develop a tax cut plan of his own to keep Reagan
from completely monopolizing the issue in the
presidential election campaign.
In his announcement in the White House East
Room, Carter appeared to admonish those who
wanted larger cuts. "Now in the heat of an
election year is not the time to seek votes with ill
considered tax cuts that would steal back in
inflation the few dollars the average American
taxpayer would get," he said.

The Rape and Assault Prevention Escort
service will begin operating this semester on
;pt. 8 and will have longer hours, the director
cf the service said Thursday.
;,.Th e-.scrvicg .will operate, for.thefirst.tfcts on--weekends'
, and operate "one hour later each
weeknigiit, Director Summey Orr said.
. Men from Olde Campus residence hails will
be serving as escorts Sunday through Thursday
7 p.m.-2 a.m., Friday 7 p.m.-ll p.m. and
Saturday 7 p.m. -9 p.m. Last semester the
service was not available on weekends and only
until 1 a.m. on weeknights..
"We expanded the hours to incorporate
students' study times. It fits in with the
undergraduate library's hours," said Orr, who
h a sophomore from Monroe.
R.A.P.E., which was organized by junior
Joe Euckner last February, escorted more than
1,000 girls between February and May, Orr
said. . - ' '
"A lot of girls think they will be bothering
the guys working, but they won't. The guys
want to go out and work," he said."
Approximately 200 men and women from
Olie Campus, will-be. working withiR.A.PJL;
this year. Each hour about six men "will be
available to work as escorts and women will
work the telephones, Orr said. ;;
"All a girl has to do is call and she can have
an escort anywhere within walking distance of
campus downtown, sorority houses, South
Campus dorms anywhere," he said. The
R.A.P.E. telephone number, 933-7602, rings
into the Olde. Campus office and then the
caller is connected with the service. ?
. Though rapes are not common occurrences .
on this campus, there were several assaults
made cn women here last semester. According
to statistics released by the Chapel Hill Police
Department, four rapes were reported in the
first three months cf 1SC0. Two occurred in
Chapel Hill and two occurred in Carrboro.
"(R.A.P.E.) is a valuable service,
University Police Sgt. Bob Pcrrcea said. "It's
a good r;r:crut;on.;( '; t '
Crr said the residents cn Clde Campus arc
enthusiastic about working with R.A.P.E.
"A lot cf guys are ready to help cut. People
keep coming and asking me if they can work
with R.A.P.E.," he said.
The service screens its escorts to ensure their
dependability, Orr said. Each residence hall
has a director who is rerpcnsible for signing up
escorts and screening them.
