The latest increase would appear to make it difficult for the administration to achieve its forecast of reducing unemployment to less than 7 per cent by the year s end however. White House press Secretary Hon Nessen said administration analysts believe the forecast will hold up the overriding Factor in the july report apparently was the typical Post recession phenomenon in which thousands of per sons who Don t seek work when the Economy is in a tailspin begin making the rounds of personnel offices John w Kendrick chief economist for the Commerce department.

Quot our emphasis is lifting definitely toward toxins \ toxin is a Poison some chemicals Are toxic by their very nature arsenic and Eyna mde Are examples others Are toxic because of their volume for example Nail is not toxic to humans in Small closes but a cup of wit in a baby s milk would be toxic what makes a harmless substance a toxin is that it either damages the body or interferes with its function toxins can occur naturally or can be Man made raising again the question of whether sabotage occurred Bachman believes sabotage is tar fetched police Agi ocies have been kept up to Date on the investigation the Fri has questioned the commander of the state american legion but there is no sign of an intense police investigation of sabotage City investigators checked out the hotels where the legionnaires staved the emphasis was on renovations air conditioning water sewage food and anything unusual Bachman has suggested that if a toxin did cause the disease it was probably transmitted through the air. And not food or water of it was a toxin it will be harder and harder to Trace As time passes Bachman said Quot As there s More and More cleansing and dilution the ability to detect toxins w ill become less Ile also said toxins Are tougher to detect than viruses or bacteria even though they leave Tell tale signs of damage and change in tissue researchers cautioned again that the exact cause May never be found what we know is really what we Don t know. Said Sencer Quot it is possible Well never know the search for toxins will also continue in the lab. Along with continuing tests for viruses and bacteria now that we Are fairly Well convinced that this is not highly Infix Nous agent to other people we Are putting it into a lab where we do not have to take such a High degree of precaution for the personnel and the environment Quot hem it said Senate approves measure that freezes income taxes gain of about 2u0 0u0 in recent months but there were apparently some other factors at work Kendrick said. Not All of which Are fully understood yet one question was raised by the fact that Over half of the 2 3-Miuion person growth in the Job Force in the past year were among adult women even though they make up just under a third of the total work Force in the past the number of women entering the Job Force has been a rough indicator of How badly strapped family budgets Are analysts feel that Factor is probably still present to some degree in the latest surge but compounded now by More Basic changes in women s role in society for whatever reason 47 4 per cent of All Workmo age women Are now looking for or holding jobs. Up from 46 i per cent a year ago the participation rate for adult men meanwhile has fallen in the same period from 81 i per cent to 80 5 per cent the unemployment rate for adult women in july was 7 6 per cent compared to 7 i per cent in june adult male unemployment at 6 1 per cent was virtually unchanged from 6 per cent in june unemployment among Heads of households climbed to 5 4 per cent from 5 i per cent teen agers and Blacks the groups hardest hit by unemployment. Benefited from some improvement. Washington api the Senate passed a Bill Friday night that freeze income taxi s and nukes billions of dollars Worth of changes in the taxation of businesses and investors the measure which has something for just about everybody was approved 49 to 22 it goes later this month to a Compromise conference with the House which passed its own tax legislation eight months ago scores of differences Between the two measures must be reconciled most importantly the Din would extend through dec 31. 1977 the individual and business tax cuts enacted last year they Are Worth about $186 a year ago to a typical $15 000-a-year family it tour the measure debated by the Senate for nearly six weeks Aims to simplify the tax filing process while creating new tax Breaks for College students working parents the elderly and housewives despite a fight by a bloc of Liberal the Bill carries a Long string of tax advantages for High income investors and businesses but it would end some abuses of tax shelters and make it More difficult for the wealthy to avoid taxation altogether. The Biti is sharply different from the version passed by the House last year a Senate House conference will Nave to reconcile the differences later this month As a whole the House Bill is less generous to High income investors and businesses the Senate Bill however Aims to provide specific Relief to parents of College students. By allowing a special tax credit for tuition and similar expenses homeowners by allowing a credit for certain Energy conservation improvements. Working parents by simplifying and liberalizing tax benefits to offset the costs of child care expenses a less generous provision is in the House Bill a housewives by launching a program that eventually could Lead to federally subsidized pen Nons for spouses who do not work outside the Homes far reaching As those provisions Are the Long Senate Battle was fought not Over such benefits but Over tax Breaks for investors and businesses sen Bussell b Long. A la. And a majority of his tax writing finance it Ommittee wrote into the Bill a series of tax Breaks designed to attract investment in american business sen Edward m. Kennedy. A mass. Leading the opposition criticized Many of those incentives As an unwarranted Drain of tax dollars in virtually every Case Long won one of the rare exceptions came on Friday when the Senate voted 43 to 39 against a Long proposal that would have provided an additional $870 million a year Worth of tax Relief for investors with two thirds of it go ing to the wealthy persons with incomes Abov e $50,000 the arguments on that provision summed up the Long weeks of debate on the Bill Industry is crying out for capital Long said these investment needs can be met Only by increased private savings he added this. In turn requires More favourable tax treatment of the income from capital a Tow proposal replied Kennedy. Is simply another Effort to provide an increased tax preference for the wealthy at the expense of the millions of Lowland Middle income individuals who already Bear too heavy a Burden with the tax Laws a a major Side Issue during the debate was the fight by sen Edmund s Muskie a Maine chairman of the budget committee to protect the new congressional budget making process Reagan senator defend their team Bridge 15 comics 12 crossword 3 editorial 6 hospitals 8 television 13 stocks 16 women 5 misty weather May continue Over weekend they could Hay played a misty Quot most of Friday in Tho Bradford Oroa a and it does t look too Good for Tho first portion of Tho weekend there will be periods of rain through tonight lows in the 55-62 degree area and highs May reach the mid-70 s.

In doing what he is doing to Compromise principles. A the former California governor who is challenging resident fwd for the gop bid said what we really Are doing for the first time in the history of the Republican party is trying to bring segments of this party together to win an election instead of just winning a convention and we re going to win an election Quot Reagan said Schweiker.
