Execution Seen from Terminal
CAIRO (AP) — Egypt flew five Palestinian guerillas to Tunis in an effort to save hijacked hostages.
TUNIS (AP) — Palestinian guerillas publicly executed a West German hostage aboard a hijacked British airliner Saturday after Tunisian and Egyptian officials rejected their demand for release of 13 terrorists held in Cairo.
Bank Manager Werner Kehl, 43, was shot in the back as he stood in the open door of the plane in full view of the airport terminal building. He dropped 12 feet to the tarmac and IO minutes later was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead on arrival.
The three hijackers then set a deadline for the next killing among their 40 surviving hostages. But the deadline passed without a new execution and there were reports Egypt might give in at least partly to their demands.
A high Tunisian official said an Egyptian plane with “some Palestinian guerillas on board” was due in Tunis from Cairo around 8 p.m. — I p.m. CST. The official declined to indicate how many were arriving or whether they were some or all of the 13 held by Egyptian authorities.
The Tunisian news agency announced earlier that the 13 men had already arrived in Tunis, but this was false. The announcement may have been an attempt to deceive the hijackers.
When they learned of the deception, they killed Kehl — in the presence of a Palestine Liberation Organization representative who boarded the plane in an attempt to talk.
Tunisian Foreign Minister Habib Chatti told an urgently-convened meeting of American and West European ambassadors that Tunisia would like them to intervene to save the Ford announced production^Ibut he <"<1 not specify cutbacks that will idle 32.474 |wbat klnd of intervention he employes for one to five weeks|bad 'n. row®-between Thanksgiving and *ash* Arafat, head of the March I was by Radio

DETROIT (AP) — Massive layoffs have swept through the auto industry with all four U.S. auto makers slashing production in response to tumbling sales.
Cutbacks announced by Ford and American Motors will boost December jobless rolls to 178,000, more than a quarter of the industry’s 700,000 bluecollar work force.
Nearly half the furloughs are for indefinite periods.
December layoffs will affect 61 percent of Chrysler^ hourly workers, 24 percent at AMC, 20 percent at F'ord and IO percent at General Motors.

WASHINGTON (AP) -your Thanksgiving turkey stuffed, it may be dangerous.
That warning comes from the agriculture department, which says that cooking stuffing inside a turkey increases the danger of salmonella poisoning.
The department issued the warning in reporting the results of a survey of food safety practices in the home. The survey indicated that many homemakers would flunk tests for cooking turkey safely.
Fresh meat and poultry may contain salmonella bacteria, which cause a disease characterized by f I u -1 i k e symptoms such as severe
headaches, vomiting, diarrhea, cramps and fever.
It can cause death in partic-u I a r I y susceptible persons such as infants, the elderly or those with chronic diseases.
Although salmonella can be killed when the turkey is cooked, it may be transferred from the turkey to the stuffing. the department said.
"Therefore, for absolute safety, stuffing or dressing should be cooked in a separate container,” it added.
However, the survey of 2,197 home cooks showed that only 26 percent of the respondents who prepared stuffing followed this procedure.
“If the homemaker insists on cooking stuffing inside the turkey, it is imperative that
she cook the stuffing thoroughly,” the department said. “In the cavity of the turkey, it takes longer for the stuffing to be sufficiently cooked.”
It should reach a temperature of at least 165 during roasting, the department advised.
“Just because the outer surface of the turkey appears to be done does not necessarily indicate the stuffing is safely done too,” it added.
Here too the American homemaker flunked. A majority of those participating in the survey, when asked how they knew the stuffing was done, replied that, when “the turkey is done, the stuffing is done”
The risk of cooking the stuffing in the turkey is further compounded when the stuffing is packed tightly, because it does not allow the oven heat to penetrate as quickly, the department said.
However, 40 percent of the cooks participating in the survey who stuffed their turkeys packed them tightly, it added,
“To the homemakers’ credit, only a small proportion of them (6 percent) indicated they stuffed the turkey a day or more prior to roasting,” the department said. “Advance stuffing, of course, would allow time for salmonella bacteria to multiply.”
