Ing age (15 to 44 The official figures were re leased after UPI checked popu lation trends in every state anc the District of Columbia anc found that in 1973 the birth rate dropped to the lowest level since records first were kept in i number of states. The popula tion in some cases increased al a slower pace than had been predicted by demographers the people who keep track o. such trends only a year earlier. The contraceptive pill, the economic pinch and a host of other developments such as le- galized abortions were cited by different authorities as possible factors. California and New York, the two most populous states in the nation, recorded only fractiona increases in their- numbers in the past year. California's popu- lation rose by to'an es- timated while in New York it was up only to ,'100. Illinois Down Illinois may actually have losl people. According to the latcsl figures available from the Illi- nois department of public, health, the population was on 1973, a clror. of as against that of 12 months earlier. Despite the slowed population growth, the UPI survey found that outside the biggest states the increase in populations ap- peared to dip only slightly in most middle and sparsely- populated slates. A handful ol slates where unusual economic factors occurred we're the ex- ception.

"Instead, we have had in- stability of price and insecurity of Church said, noting that the Arab-Israeli war has been blamed for these conse- quences. Church asked, "long before the war occurred, did the companies and the U.K. government have reason to be- lieve that the agreement was house of cards'. Should an at Icntlvc government have known Ihis from the start, and takei appropriate measures to streng then our market position? Migh we then have been better pro pared to confront the difficul lies we, and our allies, have Objections Church (old newsmen the state department objected to release of the testimony, claim ing it would damage Akins abilities to perform in his pros ent post as ambassador to Saudi Arabia. He said he mighl make other documents public il the state and defense depart mcnts and the National Securitj Council refuse his request tha they he declassified. Church's aides said Akins am; justice department anti-trusi lawyer were kept wailing in a New York law office in Janu- ary, 1971, while representatives of 39 oil companies met behind closed doors to design the anti- trust exemption they wanted. Akins said that though he com- mented on the agreement, it was basically written by the in- dustry. Church said Akins' testimony 'shows the subordinate if not iubservient role of the govern- ment in dealing with the oil in- dustry." "What best serves the oil companies best serves the American people is an assump lion we have indulged in too Church said. In other developments: The Nixon administration is weighing a proposal to help workers hunt new employmen: and relocate at government ex pense. J. Usery, Presiden: Nixon's newly appointed specia assistant f o r energy-relaW labor problems, says this is one of several possibilities for eas- ing the employment crunch. The head of the American Pc- r o 1 e u m Institute criticizcc congress Saturday for adopting a punitive attitude toward the oil industry without getting down to the fundamentals ol solving the energy problem. AP 'resident Frank Ikard told UPI n an interview that he deplores .he "shrill voice" being used b> critics of the oil producers. A house subcommittee has subpoenaed two interior deparl- nent officials in an investiga- ion of the recent million ease of oil shale lands in Co- orado. Rep. John Dingell (D- chairman of the small business subcommittee, said the department originally estimated .lie value of the land as only million.

More Layoffs in Auto Industry Are Predicted DETROIT (AP) With auto sales off 30 percent and stocks of big cars still at record levels, .he nation's automakers may lave to extend the cutbacks that have virtually wiped out more than jobs. General Motors has warned another employes that hey will be subject to layoffs [or "varying periods of time" between now and the end of March, and Ford has an addi- tional workers on tempo- rary furloughs. Industry analysts estimate 'hat stockpiles of new cars dropped only slightly following .he first wave of plant shut- downs and layoffs in December. Thurs far in 1974, 64.175 workers have been given indefi- nite layoffs by the auto firms. This includes at GM, at Chrysler and at Ford. The automakers still are sit- ing on about 1.6 million autos far ahead of the previous leak of 1.46 million in .1969, vhen the inventories were more evenly divided among different car sizes. Now, because of concern over .he availability of fuel, the makers.report a 110-day supply of the big slandard-sized models. At the same time, small car supplies are at what is consid- ered to.be the lowest possible loint about 15-20 days' worth. David Sullivan Charged in Crash David Sullivan, 21, of Man- chester, has been charged with driving left of center after a car accident Saturday afternoon in he 6600 block of C avenue NE vhich resulted in injuries to limsclf and another person.

The Ovcl car, leaded north, attempted to ivoid the Sullivan car, but went iroadside in the road. Sullivan's car struck Mrs. Ovcl's car in he right side. Hospitals Urged To Be Ready for Flu Increase DBS MOINES (UPI) State lealth department officials Sat- urday warned hospital adminis- trators that a significant in- crease in admissions can be an- ticipated if the current flu out- break continues. A department spokesman said school absenteeism has exceed- ed 10 percent in five Iowa coun- ties, and that additional out- breaks may be forthcoming. Counties where the absenteeism rate was greater than 10 percent during the last week were Clay- ton, Fayette, Mitchell, Dickin- son and Union. Schools Closed The spokesman said that "se- veral schools have been closed because of absenteeism which has been associated with symp- toms consistent with influenza." In addition, Ihe department advised school officials and hospital administrators to take steps to cope with the possi- ble flu epidemic. "Hospital administrators may anticipate an increased demand 'or sp-ace and staff during the next few weeks as the epidemic continues, which it can he ex- pected to do if it is indeed influ- the official said. "It may advisable to postpone elec- tive admissions during this period and to curtail all but es- sential hospital visiting privi- leges." However, the department's in- fectious disease control division said that "closing of schools is not a recommended measure 'or controlling an outbreak of suspected influenza in a com- munity although unnecessary congregation of large groups should be avoided." School closings, Ihe depart- ment said, may be practical iccausc of "excessive absen- eeism among students and fac- u 11 y preventing meaningful operation." Gultcnbcrg schools, closed ast week, were to reopen Mon- day. However basketball games Saturday night and, next Tues- day night were canceled. Seek Virus Type The Iowa official said Wiscon- sin health officials have isolated an influenza type B virus from three patients in the LaCrosse area and that school closings have been reported in the neigh boring states of Illinois, Min nesota and Michigan. "Pending laboratory iden lification of an agent causing the current outbreaks in Iowa, i seems reasonable to consider il to be influenza, possibly the same as isolated in [he spokesman said.
