    TRANSCRIPT (SEQUENCE 7) "THE STABILITY OF PRICES WILL NOT BE SHATTERED BY THE FULFILMENT OF OUR DEMANDS, THIS WILL BE SUFFICIENTLY DONE BY THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT'S GRUEN PLAN AND ITS IMPORT POLICY, (APPLAUSE) BY THE TRADESMEN AND THE WHOLESALERS WITH THEIR HUGE PROFIT MARGINS, AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST, BY DEFENCE MINISTER STRAUSS WITH HIS REARMAMENT PLAN" (CROWD APPLAUD).

    Background: THE WEST GERMAN METAL WORKERS' UNION CALLED GIANT PROTEST RALLIES OVER THEIR RISING LIVING COSTS, JAN 11. THEY MASSED AT 73 RALLIES. IN STUTTGART, A MAJOR HOME OF THE WEST GERMAN CAR INDUSTRY, THERE WERE THREE, WITH 20,000 AT THIS MEETING AT THE CITY SPORTS GROUND. A PROTEST MARCH THROUGH THE CITY WAS FORBIDDEN BY THE AUTHORITIES.

    THE UNION, DEMANDING A TEN PER CENT PAY RISE, MOSTLY BLAMES WEST GERMAN GOVERNMENT REARMING FOR RISING COSTS. PAY NEGOTIATIONS, OPENED JAN 2, WERE AT AN IMPASSE, RALLY SPEAKERS REPORTED.

    ONE OF THEM, HERR SCHWAB, ALSO WARNED THAT GOVERNMENT AGRICULTURAL SUBSIDIES(UNDER THE GRUEN PLAN) AND ITS IMPORT POLICY WOULD UNDERMINE FUTURE PRICE STABILITY.
