Ford skipped skiing Friday for the first time in six days to hold his first major business meeting since he came here for a holiday vacation. On into Afternoon Nessen described the opening round of talks Friday as “intensive, detailed and concentrated.” He said Ford and his advisers were not in total accord and that a “’clash of ideas” to narrow the differences is under i way. Originally scheduled as a morning meeting, Friday’s ses-! sion went on into the afternoon.; with Ford inviting his advisers to a buffet lunch and stag dinner at his rented Swiss-modern chalet.

Ct&K Rapidt Newt— Unemployment rose from 16 percent in October to 2 4 percent in November in the Cedar Rapids area, according to a report released Saturday by the Iowa Flmployment Security commission. The report blamed the increase largely on seasonal trends. However, it said several industries did have layoffs. 1.900 Jobless The number of jobless workers in Cedar Rapids (defined by the commission as all of Linn county) totaled 1,900 in November, an increase of 600 from October.

Last year in November the Cedar Rapids unemployment rate was 1.9 percent and 1.500 workers were jobless. Increase Seen The report said the unemployment rate is expected to increase through February as seasonal conditions cause employment to drop in agriculture, construction and retail trade. It said the national economy may influence manufacturing employment in Cedar Rapids and thus produce a substantially higher jobless rate. The labor force (the number of employed and unemployed workers) in the Cedar Rapids area declined from 78,400 in October to 78.300 in November. The labor force was 75,600 in November of 1973. Drop Told Total employment dropped from 77,100 in October to 76,500 in November. A seasonal decline in agriculture was responsible for most of this reduction, the report said. Fumployment in November of this year was 2,300 above the level recorded in 1973. Nonmanufacturing industries reported a gain of 1,000 workers from November, 1973, to November, 1974.
