Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - November 29, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa The Cedar Kavlds Gazette: Fri., November 29, 19 Hussein Turning to East Bank Developmen AMMAN, Jordan (AP) Freed of immediate responsibil- ity for removing the Israeli oc- cupation forces from Palestine, King Hussein Isays he is plan- ning a (radical shake-up to push development of i Jordan's re- maining territory. In an interview at his Basman palace, Hussein said he is deter- mined to abide by the decision of last month's 'Arab summit hi Morocco giving the Palestine Liberation Organization respon- sibility for the West Bank, Is- raeli-occupied land west of the Jordan river. Hussein said, however, 1: thought the Rabat decision wa premature by several months and was forced on Jordan b the other Arab nations. Before the summit, Hussei considered himself responsibl for the West Bank Palestinians and presumably if Israel pullec back the West Bank Would hav reverted to Jordan. Endorsed PLO But the Arab leaders at Raba endorsed the PLO, a coalition o Palestinian groups headed jb; Yasir Arafat, as Ithe sole k-epre sentative of the Palestinian peo pie.'. It said i Arafat's i forces should assume.responsibility 'far the West Bank in the event o Israeli withdrawal. Hussein said the governmenl will turn its attention to pro moling development of industry farms and natural k-esources o: the East Bank, what remains ol Jordan. He envisioned a Jordan valley farm development scheme north of the Dead sea, water resource development further north Jn the area and more intensive use of the sparsely populated semi- desert, from the to Jordan's only port, Aqaba. "We are tetill trying mobiL ize our country as a Hussein said. "We are trying to put young people in positions of responsibility, while (utilizing the experience of the older genera- lions in helping us progress." Cutting Influence Because bf the Rabat deci- sion, Hussein said he jplans fur- ther moves to reduce the influ- ence of West IBank Palestinians in his government. Last week Hussein dissolved parliament for a year and cut the number of Palestinians in his cabinet from 10 to four. Pal- estinians humber about hall the two million people of east Jor- dan. He said the government has not yet decided who will be al- lowed to vote in the elections, which lare at least a year away. But, he Said, women will be al- lowed to vote and run for offii for the first time. He said Palestinians who ho Jordanian passports will have choose between Palestinian ai Jordanian identity for elector matters but not in other area "Little Embittered" Hussein expressed disappoin nent at 'continued attacks o lim by the PLO in violation a secret pledge at Rabat to sto :he attacks. "We are a little embittered ate by possibly irresponsibl he said, referrin o reports by Salah Khalaf, No 2 man to Arafat in Al Fatah, o plots On Hussein's life, Al Fata is the largest single guerill group.

KKK Takes Dim View OfWallace HOUSTON (UPI) The K Klux Klan vice presidentia nominee says many Klansme won't support Alabama IVallace for President becaus 'he is not as white as he was.

"He is not as iwhite as he was n Nelson said, i "Hi mind has deteriorated, I'm orry to say, along with his iody. If he hadn't gotten shot feel his mind wouldn't havi one and we would have though! bout backing him. "The reason he's not so white is that George Wallace lias been pretty friendly.to a tella in Tuskeegee, Ala., IB alack man who is married to a white woman. I believe that Wallace felt right several rears ago, but j now he doesn't." Nelson said Wallace has one redeeming" quality. "I believe that a lot of blacks re still afraid of him, and that iey won't vote for him. There's way he's going to win 'the emocratic nomination. He's irough." Nelson, imperial wizard of a KK splinter group, the Texas iery Knights, said he and the (KK's presidential nominee, ale Reusch of Ohio, will ac- ;pt the nominations at ia KKK ally Dec. 14 at Stone Mountain, a.

Wellford Wilms, an education- researcher at the University f California, revealed these indings Wednesday in a 200- age report he called "a study 1 tragedy." He said that students sect ing lower-status occupations have a better chance of find- ing jobs after graduation, but "on the average they barely earned the federal minimum wage." Wilms other things being equal, and 'ethnic minorities earned less than whites in five of six oc- cupations." Wihns said he supported a proposed new Federal Trade Commission rule that profit- making schools be required to divulge facts about place- ment and graduates' earnings to prospective students. He urged that tax-supported schools be said he interviewee graduates who trained for jobs as accountants, program- mers, electronic technicians dental assistants, secretaries and cosmetologists. They came from 50 tax-supported communi- ty colleges and technical schools, as well as private schools in San Francisco, Chica- go, Miami and Boston.

They'said Friday a instrument produced a beam of 115 billion electron when activated Oct'. 26, and sub- sequently has reached more than 200 BEV. The electron-beam, like the proton beam, is one of the most sophisticated of tools. It is used all scientific in efforts to study the ultimate nature of all matter and the behavior of the tiniest particles. Fermilab, an Atomic Energy Commission facility, already has the world's highest-energy, proton beam at 400 BEV. The Stanford Linear Accelera- tor Center in California pre- viously had the 'highest-energy electron in the U. S. at 20 BEV. The Soviet Union has one of 45 BEV at Serpukhov. All ordinary matter is filled with electrons, one of the tiny particles that make up the atom. In television sets, an electron >eam sweeps rapidly across the ube to'- produce the picture. The' elevision electron beam has an energy of electron volts. Egypt Sentences 3 for Spying CAIRO (AP) An Egyptian military court Monday sen- tenced a Palestinian and his Egyptian wife to death by hang- ing after finding them guilty ol spying for Israel, the court an- nounced.

Report: City Pound Better than County Jail HOUSTON (UPI) A grand jury report says animals in the city pound are trealetl better hari prisoners in the county jails. The report said conditions al the jail are so deplorable that Harris county may be in viola- tion of, state laws requiring. safe and suitable jail." "Animals placed'in the city pound or the SPCA (Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) enjoy more humane the report said. The grand jury said the com- missioners court was at fault for failing to take any action to improve conditions, even though commissioners were advised of he panel's findings. The report said the jails were overcrowded, lacked adequate shower facilities and lacked special treatment for addicts, alcoholics or the retarded. It also condemned a lack of clothes and hygiene aid for pri- soners and inadequate milk and citrus fruits in the prisoners' diets. End to Short-Haul Air Service Seen by Expert CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (UPD- Fuel shortages may force1 nation's air transportation sys tern into making major changes including the virtual abandon mcnt of short-haul air service according to an aeronautics ex pert at the Massachusetts In slilutc of Technology. Joseph Vittck, an assislan professor of aeronautics am astronautics, says jfuel savings through new technology migh cut U.S. airline fuel needs in half by the year 2000. But he warned that the gov- ernment's major technological efforts in the near future will most likely be directed at fuel savings for automobiles. And if the Investment in aircraft technology Isn't made, energy shortages may eventually hurt the industry, Vittek said in nn article in the journal Trans- portation Research. The air system "as we know it today will change and short naul service be virtually eliminated, he said. "Only with adequate planning will viable short-haul alternatives be avail able and the long-haul air sys :em preserved." He said planning should begin now to provide alternatives to ihort-haui service and also to long-haul service. Bui ic also warned that in the evenl of a worsening fuel shortage short-haul service could be doomed no matterwhat policies the government adopts. Four Children, Aged I toi4, Die In House Fire FORISTELL, Mo. (UPI) Four young children burned to death Wednesday" 'when an elec- tric heater apparently set afire the bed in which they were sleeping.

The grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Willie Lee Culpepper, and their second daughter, who also lived in the house, escaped rom the burning two story vooden home. County Coroner F. H. Knigge said Culpepper broke a window in efforts to rescue his grand- children, but suffered a burned arm and forced back by the flames. The bodies were recovered by the Wright City volunteer fire department after the house hadi burned to the ground. "The Industry may have 'to concede short-haul markets to other modes (of transportation) in order to protect Its long-haul he said, adding that the best interests of the airlines are served in, the long run by 'assuring adequate fuel for long-haul service. In siieli an said, trains probably would replace aircraft In the heavily popu- lated urban areas, while buses would be used in the less populated short-haul market. Fuels for the jets and turbo- prop aircraft, he said, are very similar to home and industrial heating oils. If supplies are li- mited, he said, govern- ment will clearly encourage thn production of the products that heat homes and. protect jobs, rather than production of avia- tion fuels.'.' Soys Statesmen Overland of Drink, Women LONDON (UPI) Lord George-Brown, a former labor secretary, says that throughout liistory British statesmen have traditionally drunk too much or were too fond of the girls or both.
