"Fix it, Daddy," she says at four, tearfully producing her broken balloon purchased from the vendor at the parade. "Fix it, Daddy," she says at six, struggling with her jacket zipper on her rush out the door to school. "FIX IT, Daddy," she says at eight, confidently wheeling her dented and lopsided bike toward him as he gets out of his car after work. "Fix it, Daddy," she intones righteously at 10 after coming out loser in a knock-down, drag-out battle with her stupid, tyrannical and ab- solutely impossible brother. "Fix it, Daddy," she pleads at 12 in the first of many struggles with her mother over whether she's old enough to wear eye shadow.

The new council was an- nounced in a letter from the Pope to Agostino Cardinal Casaroli, Vatican secretary of state. "Even where agnostic ideologies, hostile to Christian tradition, or even declaredly atheist, inspire certain keys to thought, still greater is the urgency for the church to intertwine a dialogue with cultures in order that today's man may discover that God, far from being man's rival, gives himself that he may fulfill himself fully, in his image and likeness," the letter said. ...DEDICATED TO BETTER EDUCATION...

Theme of the event was United Farm Workers Union to Share in Leade La Paz, Calif. (NE) -- The United Farm Workers of America, the union of migrant workers founded by Cesar Chavez, is being restructured and Chavez has announced that he wants to bring "younger blood" into the union to keep it from stagnating. "Cesar Chavez is still the president and the chief of- ricer," Chris Hartmire, UFW assistant to the president, said in a telephone interview. "But there will be more shared leadership." Hartmire said the restructuring is not a response to criticism of Chavez's leadership but "a response to reality. The union has grown to the point where it has to decentralize. Otherwise, all the time and energy is spent maintaining it. "It's similar to a family- owned business, as it grows it has to allow for new leader- ship." There has been criticism from others in the farm labor movement who say Chavez has attempted to monopolize the movement and prevent them from receiving government and private aid. Hartmire said a team management system of six people, mostly elected of- ricers, including Chavez, has been set up at the La Paz, Calif., headquarters. Instead of locals within the union, the UFW is setting up field units by crop, Hartmire said. The five divisions are citrus, vegetables, field crops (such as cotton and grain), grape and tree fruit and "under the roof" I mushrooms and eggs). "There will be resources for each (unit) to set its own goals," he said, " and to use those resources to generate new members." The union now has 162 contracts with growers. These contracts cover about 170,000 farm workers, Hartmire said, some for a few weeks a year, some all year round. Most of the UFW contracts are in California, although there are also organizing of- CRITICIZES IIONOR Warsaw.

Antonio Orendian, founder of the Texas Farm Workers, criticized Chavez and said he did not see anything new about the restructuring. "He always put his finger in everything before and this will be the same -- now he will pull the strings. He's never going to lose the strings," Orendian said. Orendian founded Texas Farm Workers in 1975 after leaving the UFW. Texas Farm Workers has 1,500 members, Orendian said, but they are not dues-paying members and the union has no contracts. Baldemar Valasquez, president of the Farm Labor Organizing Committee, countered that groups criticizing Chavez often are not democratic themselves. "Where is the example in their organizations? Ask them about their membership." Valasquez, founder of the Midwest migrant worker organization, called Chavez "our leader as well. We have no qualms about working under his directions -- he's the vanguard of all of our aspirations." Valasquez praised Chavez and the UFW, saying he has looked into the internal workings of the union and, "as far as I'm concerned, it's one of the most democratic organizations." . Of the changes planned for the UFW, he said he believes it is an example that "Cesar is constantly exploring, evaluating, looking for the most efficient way. It's to be applauded." Chavez, a devout Catholic, has led the farm workers in what he describes as a cross between a union and movement since the early 1960's when he launched the National Farm Workers Association. UFW staff members live in what has been described as a kind of religious community and Chavez has always ad- vocated non-violent fasts, marches and strikes. No effort "is worth the life of a single grower or his child, or a single farm worker or his child." Chavez once said, but picket-line violence -- in- cluding deaths -- has curred. "The more trouble we the more religious we Chavez once said in an terview in Sojourners. The first boycott of gi'apes -- endorsed by bishops -- was wine and lettuce Chavez also credited bishops with helping to [ the growers and together to talk. Chavez has said he see the UFW consolidate gains in California and pand to 1980's. Carlisle Drug Co. PRESCRIPTIONS PAT COOl( Registered Pherme! CARLISLE BANK of "The Bank That BaC gs The Community"
