Poland's banned Solidarity trade union will use part of a $1-million U.S. grant to purchase American-made ambulances to help hard-pressed provincial health services, union activists said. A statement issued by a new working group said that Solidarity also will seek to establish specially equipped "diagnostic clinics," independent of the state-run health service, for workers.
