In an unusual maneuver, Temple University officials declared an impasse yesterday in their talks with striking faculty and announced that they would implement the terms of their last offer. Officials of the Temple Association of University Professionals (TAUP), whose strike is entering a record 20th day today, immediately denounced the step as illegal and an attempt to entice strikers to cross the picket lines. "They are doing everything to break this strike and spending all their energy trying to break this strike - intimidating and coercing people to come back - instead of negotiating," said Arthur Hochner, TAUP president.

An impasse between the only two members of the Audubon Commission resulted in no action being taken last night on a number of reappointments to borough positions. The two members are Mayor Stanley Mojta and Commissioner Jane Merryfield, and the agenda for the meeting included reappointments to several township offices, including teasurer, borough solicitor and purchasing agent. However, Merryfield declined to make a motion for approval for any of the reappointments. Although the borough commission normally consists of three members, no replacement has been named to fill the seat vacated when Vincent Lobascio resigned in November.
