NEW YORK TIMES WASHINGTON (AP) -Congress is rushing toward passage of emergency programs to help America’s jobless. The lawmakers took three quick steps Thursday to broaden and increase unemployment compensation. Congressional action to help the unemployed followed the announcement earlier this month that unemployment in November jumped to 6.5 percent, its highest level in 13 years, with nearly six million persons out of work. A bill authorizing $7.5 billion to assist the jobless was passed 79 to 13 by the senate and sent to the house. The measure includes $4 billion — twice President Ford’s suggestion — to provide an estimated 330.000 public service jobs. The senate bill also extends emergency unemployment compensation to persons presently unentitled to such benefits, at an estimated $2.5 billion cost. It also provides $1 bullion for federal loans or grants to expand public works projects and similar job-creating activity. Then, by 322 to 53, the house passed similar legislation authorizing $2 billion for 300,000 public service jobs and providing an open-ended financial feature for similar jobless compensation This leaves it up to senate-house conferences to resolve differences between the two. The house also passed. 374 to 2, and sent the senate legislation setting up a new federally financed two-year emergency unemployment compensation program costing roughly $1 billion annually. It would bring benefits to people long out of work who have exhausted all existing aid. Elsewhere on the economic front: The Business Council, comprising some of America s top corporate executives, forecast a significant improvement in the inflation rate during the next six months. Predictions at the agriculture department’s annual outlook conference foresaw no cost relief for farmers and consumers through the middle of next year. The President’s Council on Environmental Quality reported environmental protection laws will cost the nation some $194.8 billion during the decade ending in 1982 The council said this works out to between $40 and $80 per person a year. Regents Okay Salary Hikes Of 13 Percent By Charles Roberts DES MOINES (API - The state board of regents Friday approved a proposed pay plan that would hike salaries of non- (See Earlier Story on Paqe 4) academic workers by 13 percent.

Tile plan would cover 8.329 workers at the University of Iowa, Iowa State university, University of Northern Iowa, Iowa Braille and Sight-Saving School at Vinton and the School for the Deaf at Council Bluffs.
