(Staff Photo by Lorelta Fulton) By LEWIS GLULICK Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) Italy's recognition of Communist China Friday spurred Peking's momentum toward a U. N. seat and international recognition as the sole representative of China. Washington officials pre- dicted the U.N. General Assembly, due to take up the Chinese seating issue late next week, will once again side with Ihe longstanding U.S. effort lo keep Peking from laking over Nationalist China's place. But U.S. strategists are not so confident about Ihe outcome next year, and less so thereafter. The possibility clearly exists, H-SU to Costs of Hardin Simmons University trustees in their annual fall meeting Friday voted to hike tuition for the next fiscal year, re-elected officers and voted to authorize the creation of a Parents Association. Two other groups, the Board of Development and Board of Young Associates, held simultaneous meetings during the afternoon after a joint meeting of the groups earlier and a noon luncheon. At the joint meeting during the morning following the presentation of the Distingiushed Alumni Awards to three outstanding graduates of the school, the joint boards heard Dr. Elwln L. Skiles, president, outline toe school's current goals and financial needs. Frank Junell of San Angelo, who reported on financial afairs for the trustees, said his com- mittee had recommended that tuition be increased to per semester hour in order 'for H-SU In be more in line with local schools and other private institutions in the state. The new tuition rate will txjcome effective June 1, 1971, the beginning of the new fiscal year for H-SU. Current tuition is per semester hour. Junell pointed out that during the 1969-70 school year, IB per cent of all H-SU students received some form of financial assistance through the University. Joe Powell, vice president for Jobless Rate at 7-Year High WASHINGTON (AP) Spreading effects of the General Motors strike caused more job layoffs last month and pushed the nation's unemployment rate up slightly to the highest point In nearly seven years, the gov- ernment said Friday. The total number of unem- ployed remained almost un- changed from September's 4.3 million but seasonal factors re- sulted in a one-tenth of one per cent rise in the unemployment rate to 5.6 per cent of the work force. The Increase was considera- bly less than some Democratic officials had claimed in accus- ing the Labor Department dur- ing tlie political campaign of holding back the figures until 32 Street Cleaning Jobs Draw Long Line SAN FRANCISCO (AP) Some slept, others played dom- inoes or cards and a few just sat. They were the first 90 men to line up as applicants for 32 slots on the Civil Service hiring list as street cleaners, a job that pays a month. By Saturday, when the city begins accepting applications, officials expect hundreds of men to be in line for one of the high- est-paid unskilled jobs in San Francisco. First in line was Robert Hob- Inson, 23, who arrived at s.m. Thursday with a sleeping hag and armed with p-omiscs from his wife and mother to keep running in hot meals white the waiting lasts. By 8 a.m. Friday, there were an applicants, mostly black. "ji'j one ol the highest-paid nonacademic jobs in the said Wilbur Bacy, 40, who has worked at it four years on tem- porary Civil Service. The Civil Service Commission recently decided to phase out the limited tenure system and make the jobs peimanent. "It's kind of a crazy way lo secure your said Louis Farralis, 50, who was No. 10 among the waiters. The men, who camped inside Kezar Pavilion on bleachers, set up a five-member committee lo Insure that no one receives pre- ferential treatment. Applicants could not employ stand-Ins and they automatical- ly lost their places If they spent more than 30 minuies in Ihe, restraint Jobs will be given out on a first-come basis lo those quail- after last Tuesday's elections, a charge the government denied. House Speaker John W. Mc- Cormack, D-Mass., who had said on Oct. 27 that five major labor markets had been added to the list of areas with substan- tial unemployment of 6 per cent or more, contended Friday that the official figures still don't in- clude some "discour- aged" jobless who have quit looking for work. Republican National Chair- man, Rogers C. B. Morton, not- ing Uie Democratic pre-election forecasts of 6 per cent jobless compared with the official 5.fi per cent figure, accused Demo- crats of playing "an economic politics of fear." McComiark urged President Nixon and Congress to put aside partisan differences and work together to alleviate the human suffering of unemployment. Democratic National Chair- man Lawrence F. O'Brien said the Nixon administration "can be sure that it will have the support of the Democratic Congress if only it will exercise some leadership to send more than four million Americans back to work." He said the administration must be convinced now that Its economic policies are a failure and, must be changed. A' slightly shorter work week also resulted in a drop of 33 cents to a average week- ly paycheck for some 45 million rank-and-fite workers, the re- therefore, of a major setback for U.S. China policy during the administration of President Nixon, whose Republican Party in past years has accused the Democrats of being soft toward the Chinese Communists. Actually U.S. policy under Nixon's secretary of state, William P. Rogers, has been veering toward more accommodation with Peking with easing of Irarie and travel restrictions and efforts to revive 1J) e U.S. -Chinese ambassadorial talks at Warsaw. But the United States still opposes Red Chinese gains at the expense of America's Formosa ally. And the mainland Increase Tuition business affairs, said that the total amount of financial aid dispersed through the financial aid office for the 1969-70 year was an increase of over the 1868-69 school year. Renamed as officers of the H- SU Board of Trustees were Sweetwater attorney Ed Ponder, chairman: Abilene businessman Sam Waldrop and Kobert Foley of Wichila Falls, vice chairmen, and Jim Jennings of Abilene, secretary. The board also voted unanimously to endorse the establishment of a Parents Association. The idea of an association of parents came about at Ihe recent Parents Day on the campus. Parents of students, past, present, and future will be invited to become involved. A Parents Board will be selected See H-SU, I'g. 2-A An Auoeioted Presi Newi Analysis Communists have spurned U.S. moves to improve relations. The realities of international politics are propelling more nations toward diplomalic ties with Peking, despite backstage U.S. diplomatic efforts to slow Hie trend. Red China is the world's most populous nation wilh 800 million people. Taipei controls 14 million. The Irade potential, domestic political pressures, and Washington's own relaxing attitude also contribute. Haly, in an action similar to Canada's last month, recognized Ihe Peking regime "as the sole legal government of the official announcement said. While Rome only took note for Peking's claim to Formosa as part of Chinese territory, without formally endorsing this position, it was understood that Rome like Ottawa had advised the Chinese .Nationalist that establishing relations with Peking meant, breaking rela- tions with them. Taipei diplo- mats in Rome and Milan were packing to leave. At the United Nations, where Ihe Chinese representation question comes up every year, Nationalist China has survived by comfortable margins so far. This is partly because most countries have agreed with Washington that the issue Is procedurally an Important question, requiring a two-thirds vote for affirmative action. In 1969, 71 of the U.N. General Assembly members rated the matter as an Important question, as against 48 voting for a straight-majority procedure for deciding the Chinese seating item. In addition to Italy, U.S. officials have received word that Belgium, Austria and perhaps others such as Chile intend to establish diplomatic relations with Peking.

(AP) A secret American spy satel- lite rocketed into space Friday carrying infrared sensors in- tended to provide instant alert of any long-range missile attack from Russia or Red China.
