' - 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 quit. ' . 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, In Warsaw; thexovernmerJT,?3"ccencyi-eTJvd "wtdcrcsd" rumors Gierek had decided to step down in favor of Stefan Glszowski, ambassador to East Germany and reputedly a critic of Poland's belt-tightening economic program.

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 ' married couples. 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." '7? 9 n & Vty V r7 O fr77) HD&'jnrpVT! (77) JLl 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 constrain inflation." 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.

Walesa's appeal for a moratorium came amid reports the strike had spread in recent days to other cities throughout Poland. i i; By ELIZAEirni DANIEL . , ElaJf Writer 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. .

"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.
