And just a few months ago a lest was given in Abilene with the same coverage. If you're eagerly searching for work maybe you should look elsewtere since once the lest is given a register is estab- lished of those who took it and employes are drawn from Ihe register.

After a 15-hour flight from Washinglbn .across the'Inter- national Dale Line, the first American President to visit Japan'scheduled a 17-hour res- pite to rest up before calling on Emperor Hirohito" Tuesday and opening talks with Prime Minister Kakuei .Tanaka. To minlnuzt the chance of interference By radical leftists .opposed to the President's vis- it, neither, Ihe emperor nor Tanaka went to. Ihe airport, and the "arrilal ceremony there lasted .only il minutes. Busloads of carefully screened Japanese waved American and Japanese flags and applauded as Ford Icrt Air Force Olio and shook hands with' U.S. Ambassador James Hodgson, Takeshi Ya- sukawa, the Japanese ambas- sador to the United Stales, and Japanese protocol offi- cials. Howitzers fired a 21-gun sa- lute required by protocol, and the President waved to the crowd as he was escorted to a wailing helicopter for tiie 10-minute trip to the Wasak- saka Palace in downtown To- kyo. Built in 1906 as a home for Japan's croivn it was made into a stale guest -house six years ago.

The threat of. demonstra- tions, and the uncertain politi- cal future of Prime Minister Taiiaka, who is accused of us- ing his official position to prof- it financially, caused some .questioning of the value of Ford's trip. But; at a sendoff ceremony on the White House lawn, the'President said he making his ''tirst trip overseas as President with full confidence that this timely un- dertaking is in the highest na- Nixon's Happy To Be Home SAN Calif.

"I haven't talked to anyone who has seen him this week- end, but I'm sure he's still spending most o[ the day in Miss Sawyer said Sun- day. "And I know ie's happy to be out of the hospital anil back among his own things." Nixon, 61; was released Thursday from' Long Beach memorial Hospital Medical Center, where he underwent surgery ;to prevent a blood clot in his left leg from mov- ing to his-lungs or heart.

Making a refueling stop- at Anchorage's Elmendorf Air Force Base, Ford sought lo balance his desire' for peace with his support for strong na- tional'defenses. To his largely military audience, he.said: "I want to reassure you to- day that my administration remains aware lhat 'the best insurance for peace is Ihe maintenance p f first-clasS military forces'ready for de- fense."

Kissinger, who was with Ford, told reporters aboard Air Force One that no decisions are expected to emerge from Ford's four days in Japan. He said the aim is to expand on current good relations and de- termine how the United States and Japan can "work together on a global basis." Turning to .Ford's first meeting with Soviet leader Leonid I Brezhnev, near Vladi- vostok next weekend, Kissin- ger 'said 'the two. men.

Burleson said he would make every effort to prevent the discontinuance, especially for Die independent operator. "THE INDEPENDENT op- erator brings in 80 per cent of the new oil finds in this coun- try. He should nol be deprived of his incentive. He uses high- risk capital and that is hard enough to find as it Burle- son said. "How anyone could think'this'is morally wrong is something I-'cannot under- stand. "This country-needs to-be- come independent. of foreign oil and to.eliminate Ihis allow- ance woujd have the opposite effect, It would be a step backward, in my Burleson continued. "I will try to see lhal the independent operator is ex- cluded if such a bill is passed in Burleson said. The District Congress- man saj'S he doe.'; not think there are enough votes in Ihe Congress to save the contro- versial allowance. He attrib- utes (bis lo the fact that so much publicity has been given to the excess, profits of big companies who deal in foreign oil and he also thinks the-liig city Congressmen will vole to please his conslilucnts. "THERE IS-MUCH emotion on this Burleson said.

LI. Gen. Mordechai Gur, Is- raeli chief of staff, announced on Ihe slate radio that Israeli forces would remain on alert until Syria agreed to renew the mandate for Ihe United Nations disengagement force on the Golan Heights. The mandate expires at the end of Ihe month. Gur.said Novem- ber would continue to be a nervous time for the Middle East. An fsraeli communique said the two g u e r r i I la s were briefed for Iheir mission at Ihe Bashidiye refugee camp, the target of Oie Israeli shelling. Hasludiye, 12 miles north of the Israeli border on 'the southern edge of Oie city of Tyre, has a population of Palestinians. The communique said Israe- li troops intercepted the guer- rillas on the coast Sunday morning, killed one in a gun battle and captured the other. There were no Israeli casual- ties, the communiquejpid. Both were of Al Fatah, the guerrilla organiza- tion headed by Yasir Arafat, the chief of the Palestine Lib- eration Organization, the com- munique said. It said part of their mission was "to plant explosives in market places and other crowded places." The Lebanese government said Israeli naval forces made two attacks during Ihe night on Ihe Bashidiye camp. The Israel} military command said Ihe target was terrorist de- parture base" south of Rashi- diye. City Warmed By Overnight Winds Warm southeasterly winds steadily increased between midnight and 8 a.m. Monday, actually causing an increase in the nightly temperatures. From a low of 44 degrees at 11 p.m. Sunday, the mercury rose to 50 by 4 a.m. Monday as Ihe moisture-laden winds reached 10 mph. The humid air mass remained virtually steady throughout the morn- ing, and the relative humidity reached 100 per cent at 6 a.m. THE INFUSION of warm moist air spells an end to the cold and-pvercasl skies which characterized the weekend. Although a chilly drizzle oc- curred inlcrmiltently through- out the gloomy weekend, no measurable rainfall was re- ported from the National Weather Service, office at Abi- lene Municipal Airport Mon- day. The influx 'of warm souther- ly air is expected to push the mercury away from the freez- ing mark and into the upper 60s and lower 70s on Monday and Tuesday, respectively. The low Tuesday morning is expected to be near ffl de- grees. Although il isn'l marked nn any calendar, Tuesday is the average dale of Ihe first oc- currence of Ihe 32-degrce reading, freezing, which has not yet been reached in Abi- lene Ihis season.

But he said, "together wilh the solidarity of all the Greeks, irrespective or Uieir party preference, the difficul- ties "will be overcome and the problems solved." In Nicosia, Ihe Greek Cypri- leader, Glafeos derides, and the Turkish Cypriot lead- er, Raouf Denktash, both wel- comed Caramanlis' eleclipn victory. But Denklash reiterated his opposition to the return of Archbishnp II a k a r i o s, the elected president of Cyprus, lo Ihe troubled Mediterranean is- land.. Caramanlis said the triumph of democracy in Greece after years of dictatorship was a joyful event "for all those who love bur country and on whose support we are counting on for the future. "Without bloodshed, svittiout upheavals, and finally wilh the free expression of Ihe will of Ihc people, democracy has re- turned to birthplace." The Communist United Left parly expected to make signi- ficant gains in the election but made a poor showing with only 10 seals. Observers believe Ihe Pan- hcllenic Socialist Movement cut into the Communists' areas. The Socialists, led by Andreas Papandreou, came up wih 12 seals for their first ap- pea ranee on Ihc election scene. George Mavros' Center ti n i o n -N e w Forces party, which was expected to be close behind Caramanlis, got only 20.42 per cent of Ihe volis for 64 seals and became the lead- ing opposition in parliament.
