Vatican: Nixon Resignation Was Freedom's Gain
VATICAN (TTY (AP) - The Vatican’s weekly newspaper said Thursday the Watergate affair marked a victory for freedom when Richard Nixon resigned the presidency.
In an editorial signed by Federico Alessandrini, the paper’s director, who also serves as the Vatican’s spokesman, Osservatore Bella Domenica said:
“To conceal or mask limits, weaknesses and evils of domestic nature for fear of negative external repercussions is a typical feature of the systems which ignore or are afraid of liberty . . .
“F’rom the Watergate case there stemmed a question of constitutional character which left no choice open to any American political force, not even to the Republican party. The resignation has been the conclusion of a story which ends with one victor: liberty.”
ON THIS DATE in 1943, Danish warships were scuttled at Copenhagen in an uprising against the Nazis during World war ll.

Inflation, Wives Slow Transfers
CHICAGO (AP) — Inflation and wives who are taking careers more seriously are beginning to thwart some corporale plans for employe transfers, a moving industry survey shows Corporations aren’t as generous as they once were in paying for employe transfers and employes are responding with reluctance to move, according to the survey of 286 companies It also shows an increasing tendency for employes to balk at relocation because of their spouse’s careers
Transfers could slow more said J. J. Thorne, vicepresident. of marketing for Atlas Van Linos, who conducted the survey.
Thorne said that throughout the moving industry he hears the same story.
It has caused an increase in the average per-move cost for Atlas corporate customers from $1,318 to $1,494 Cost-conscious firms have responded by slicing “moving extras’’ such as reimbursement for motels, house hunting and transportation. Cuts averaged 22.4 percent, from $1,932 in 1972 to $1,500. Thorne said in an interview on Wednesday.
He said 37 percent of the companies polled had one or more employes refuse transfer in 1973.
One reason is that wives are taking their careers more seriously, Thorne found.
Problem of Wives Thorne said he has conduct
ed the survey for the past seven years hut hadn’t seen the need to ask about the problem of wives until a year ago. He said this year he found that 67 percent of the companies responding had problems talking wives into moving because of their own jobs.
‘‘Let’s face it, a move — any move — is going to be tough for a family . . . and wives who want to hold onto their jobs just increase the problem,” Thorne said.
“Ifs more than a little scary. Our business generally follows the general economy by a year. There was a recession in 1964 and we felt it bad in 1965. Now, we’re really worried over 1975.”
