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 predicted the U.N. General Assembly, due to take up the Chinese seating issue late next week, will once again side with the longstanding U.S. effort to keep Peking from taking over Nationalist China's place.
But U.S. strategists are not so confident about the outcome next year, and less so thereafter.
The possibility clearly exists,
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 trade and travel restrictions and efforts to revive the 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
An Associated Press Newt Analysis
Communists have spurned U.S. moves to improve relations.
The realities of international politics are propelling more nations toward diplomatic ties w’ith Peking, despite backstage U.S. diplomatic efforts to slow the trend. Red China is the world’s most populous nation with 800 million people. Taipei controls 14 million.
The trade potential, domestic political pressures, and Washington’s own relaxing attitude also contribute.
Italy, in an action similar to Canada's last month, recognized the Peking regime “as the sole legal government of China,’’ 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 Nationalists that establishing relations with Peking meant, breaking relations with them. Taipei diplomats in Rome and Milan were packing to leave.
At the United Nations, where the 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-majoritv procedure for deciding the Chinese seating item.
In addition to Rally, U.S. officials have received word that Belgium, Austria and perhaps others such as Chile intend to establish diplomatic relations with Peking.

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. FJwin L. Skiles, president, outline the school’s current goals and financial needs.
Frank Junell of San Angelo, who reported on financial afairs for the trustees, said his committee had recommended that tuition be increased to $33 per semester hour in order for H-SU to be more in line with local schools and other private institutions in the state.
The new tuition rate will become effective June I, 1971. the beginning of the new fiscal year for H-SU. Current tuition is $27.50 per semester hour.
Junell pointed out that during the 1969-70 school year, 83 per cent of all H-SU students received some form of financial assistance through the University.
Joe Powell, vice president for
business affairs, said that the total amount of financial aid dispersed through the financial aid office for the 1969-70 year was $1,063,639. an increase of $160,324 over the 1968-69 school year.
Renamed as officers of the H-SU Board of Trustees were Sweetwater attorney Ed Ponder, chairman: Abilene businessman Sam Waldrop and Robert Foley of Wichita 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 the 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
Weatherford Pot at Lunch
WEATHERFORD, Tex. (AP) — The pot-and-pill age has come even to the quiet little Texas towns like this Parker County seat.
Who would have suspected the high school kids in this tree-lined city of 13,000 were buying marijuana and LSD on their lunch hours.

Jobless Rate at 7-Year High
WASHINGTON (AP) -Spreading effects of tile 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 government said Friday.
The total number of unemployed remained almost unchanged from September’s 4.3
million but seasonal factors resulted in a one-tenth of one per cent rise in the unemployment rate to 5.6 per cent of the work
The increase was considerably less than some Democratic officials had claimed in accusing the Labor Department during the political campaign of holding back the figures until
32 Street Cleaning
Jobs Draw Long Line
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -Some slept, others played dominoes 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 $686 a month.
By Saturday, when the city begins accepting applications, officials expect hundreds of men to be in line for one of the highest-paid unskilled jobs in San
First in line was Robert Robinson^ 23, who arrived at 5:20 am 'Thursday with a sleeping bag and armed with promises from his wife and mother to keep running in hot meals while the waiting lasts.
By 6 a.m. Friday, there were 90 applicants, mostly black.
“It’i one of the highest-paid
nonacademic jobs in the city,” said Wilbur Bacy, 40, who has worked at it four years on temporary Civil Service.
The Civil Service Commission recently decided to phase out the limited tenure system and make the jobs permanent.
“It’s kind of a crazy way to secure your job,” said Louis Farralis, 50, who was No. IO among the waiters.
The men, who camped inside Kezar Pavilion on bleachers, set up a five-member committee to insure that no one receives preferential treatment.
Applicants could not employ stand-ins and they automatically lost their places if they spent more than 30 minutes in the, restroom.
Jobs will be given out on a first-come basis to those quali-
after last Tuesday’s elections, a charge the government denied.
House Speaker John W. McCormack, D-Mass., who had said on Od. 27 that five major labor markets had been added to the list of areas with substantial unemployment of 6 per cent or more, contended Friday that the official figures still don’t include some 600,000 “discouraged” jobless who have quit looking for work.
Republican National Chairman, Rogers C. B. Morton, noting the Democratic pre-election forecasts of 6 per cent jobless compared with the official 5.6 per cent figure, accused Democrats of playing “an economic politics of fear.”
McCormack urged President Nixon and Congress to put aside partisan differences and work together to alleviate the human suffering of unemployment.
Democratic National Chairman 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 $121.03 average weekly paycheck for some 45 million rank-and-file workers, the report said.
Police Lt. Larry Fowler and Officer Charles Fischhaber did suspect It, having picked up users at a couple of isolated raids months ago.
Users, but not pushers. Where were the dealers? Four months ago, Fowler and Fischhaber planted an undercover man, posing as a middleman in the dope trade.
The spy’s work resulted in 19 indictments. Thursday night and Friday morning, seven young men and six boys were arrested, including all of those named in the indictments, some of whom had multiple charges.
Indicted were Pat Lindsey, 20, on five counts of selling marijuana to the agent; Donny San-cy, 18, sale of LSD to the agent; James Thompson, about 20, sale of amphetamines; James Arthur Ridge, about 18, on three counts of selling marijuana Billy Priested about 18 sale of LSD and marijuana; Dave Hulac, 22, of Benbrook, sale of phencyclidine; and Frank Endicott, 18, two counts of selling marijuana. All but Hulac live here.
Bonds were set at $3,000 on each of the 19 counts.
Some of the dope trading was going on during school lunch hours in pupil hangouts walking distance from schoolyards, the investigators said.

Spy Satellite Adds I 5Minutes Warning
CAPE KENNEDY, Fla. (AP) — A secret American spy satellite rocketed into space Friday carrying infrared sensors intended to provide instant alert of any long-range missile attack from Russia or Red China.
The 1,800-pound superspy would sound a 30-minute warning of such an attack. This is double the 15 minutes that present systems give U.S. forces to prepare antimissile defenses and to launch bombers and missiles in retaliation.
The Pentagon cloaked the launching in secrecy. No advance announcement was made.
The Air Force issued a brief statement after liftoff stating merely that a sa*ellite had been launched by a Titan 3 rocket.
Newsmen, who learned of the launch and its mission from various sources, were barred
from viewing the shot from the Cape Kennedy press site.
But it’s difficult to hide a 12-story rocket, and when the Titan 3 rumbled into the predawn darkness, it awakened many residents in the area.

Observers said the secrecy may be connected with the sensitivity of the strategic arms limitations talks which resumed this week between the United States and the Soviet Union in Helsinki, Finland.
Plans call for the satellite to be parked initially some 24,000 miles above the eastern Pacific so it can be checked out by ground stations in California. Then it is to be shifted by ground command to a permanent post high above Southeast i Asia.
