FREE ESTIMATES Phone 329-4722 COLLEGE MALL Steel companies cut price hikes WASHINGTON (AP) The Ford administration has ob- tained a partial rollback of U.S. Steel's recent price rise and now is questioning an increase by the No.2 steel company in the United States. U.S. Steel Corp., responding to President Ford's criticism of the price increase as in- flationary, on Monday trimm- ed the rise by about 20 per cent. U.S. Steel last week had said it was boosting prices 4.7 per cent, but the industry Rebellious soldiers seize town VIENTIANE (AP) Several hundred rebellious army soldiers shot their way into a provincial capital in northwestern Laos today and took over the town for the se- cond time in less than three months after exchanging fire for more than an hour with loyal troops, military sources said. Several persons were re- ported wounded in the fighting before dawn in Ban Sai, on the border with Thailand. A United States embassy of- ficial said no Westerners were reported hurt. The rebels are Lao Theung tribesmen who had been members of a separate army supported by the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency in the fight against the Communist Pathet Lao. The same two companies seized Ban Houei Sai in Oc- tober after the CIA army was disbanded. Today they were reported supporting a seven-point pro- gram which student activists are pushing, including dis- solution of the Laos national assembly. In South Vietnam, crowds celebrating Christmas Eve thronged the streets of Saigon. But it appeared that the North Vietnamese and Viet Cong were about to capture the fourth district town in an offensive that has been going on for nearly three weeks in the southern half of. the country. The south has ad- mitted suffering casu- alties in a month of fighting. The Communists pounded Tanh Linh, 75 miles northeast of Saigon, with rounds of heavy shells and launched five infantry assaults against the district town, the Saigon com- mand said. CAPITOL FURNITURE AND CARPETS LTD. will be CLOSED FRIDAY, DEC. 27th WATCH FOR OUR SALE AD IN FRIDAY'S HERALD! leader said Monday it would reduce the price hike to around four per cent. Shortly before U.S. Steel's announcement, its biggest competitor, Bethlehem Steel Corp.. said it was raising its prices about per cent to "bring them in line with the competition." Later, Wheeling-Pittsburgh Stee! Corp. said it was hiking prices 5.5 per cent on about one-sixth of its product line. After U.S. Steel's announce- ment. Ford said in Vail, Colo., "I am pleased with the work that was done by the council on wage and price stability and the attitude of U.S. Steel in making this rollback." Council director Albert Kees had met Friday with U.S. Steel chairman E.B. Speer to hear the company's explanation for the increase. Speer said the decision to modify the Dec.16 price in- crease came after that meeting. The company also pledged to try to hold prices stable for the next six months. The new prices mainly affect the steel used to frame skyscrapers and bridges, carbon steel plates used for machinery, railroad products, pipe and tin mill products. They do not affect steel that goes into the manufacture of automobiles, appliances and other consumer goods. Bethlehem said the increases are insufficient to cover higher production costs. "They cover only one-third of the cost increases not recovered by Bethlehem dur- ing the last five a spokesman said. Bethlehem refused com- ment on U.S. Steel's action and officials of CF and I, which last week said it was raising prices eight per cent on a wide variety of its line, were not available. Assassination attempt fails BUENOS AIRES (AP) Guerrillas rammed a car loaded with explosives into the motor convoy of federal police chief Luis Margaride Monday night, killing a cor- poral and wounding two of- ficers, police reported. The 56-year-old Margaride was unhurt. He was named po- lice chief Nov.4 after left- wing assassins killed his predecessor, Alberto Villar, in a spectacular explosion on Villar's private boat. A small truck with no driver slammed into one of the security cars and exploded. Mopping up One of countless loads of snow is readied for a one-way trip to an empty field near 16th Avenue N. and Stafford Drive as city crews and contractors struggle with the remains of Sunday's blizzard. Snow removal units were at it for the third straight day today in an effort to make all streets passable before the Christmas break, but city Engineering Director Randy Holfeid warned they wouldn't be able to get streets in "first- class" condition by today.

MONDAY THRU FRIDAY doted and Holiday! i Indian land claim negotiations begin EDMONTON (CP) Federal and provincial of- ficials said Monday negotiations that could lead to the first significant withdrawal of land from a national park in recent decades have begun. Preliminary talks have been held between Ottawa and the provincial government on the request by the Cree Indian Band of Fort Chipewyan, Alta., for acres of land now in Wood Buffalo National Park. The park includes land in both Alberta and the Northwest Territories and the area claimed by the Indians is in the southeast corner of the park in Alberta. The federal government has already approved in principle the claim and John McGilp, federal govern- ment negotiator in the case, said the basis would be set for withdrawal of the land from the park if the province agrees with Ottawa that the Indians are en- titled to the land. The claim is being made under the provisions of an Indian treaty signed near the beginn- ing of the century. Mr. McGilp explained that under the provisions of the Parks Act and the Alberta Natural Resources Transfer Act, any land withdrawn from Wood Buffalo National Park would revert to provincial title. The province government would have to agree to transfer the title to the federal government which would then transfer it to the Indians. Papal hammer blows to open Holy Year VATICAN CITY (AP) Pope Paul strikes a silver hammer on the holy door of St. Peter's Basilica shortly before midnight tonight to open a holy year dedicated to reconciliation within the Roman Catholic Church and throughout the world. The ceremony preceding the annual Christmas Eve midnight mass in the basilica will be carried by television in 45 countries. The holy door, walled up for the 25 years between holy years, was dismantled brick by brick last week, leaving only an outside layer for the Pope's hammer to strike three times. Then from inside, ropes will be used to pull the door down. In his annual Christmas ad- dress to the college of car- dinals Monday, Pope Paul said the beginning of the holy year finds the world "floundering On the edge of the abyss." He cited the violence in Northern Ireland, Vietnam and the Middle East and stressed the significance of the Holy Land to Christianity, Judaism and Islam.

Antarctica (Reuter) Scientists hoping to make a descent into the crater of an active volcano in the Antarctic appear to have abandoned the attempt because of violent explosions. During three major ex- plosions in the inner crater of Mount Erebus on Ross Island Monday night, a lava "bomb" weighing more than a ton was hurled out. Dr. Shaun Norman, New Zealand leader of the 14-man joint New Zealand-French ex- pedition, said today: "It is a commonsense decision. It is not fair to expect men to go down into the inner crater during the present rate of volcanic activity." He said the party, which has been on Mount Erebus for over two weeks, would probably leave on Sunday or Monday. But he said if activi- ty reduced considerably in the next few days there was still a faint possibility of a descent. Jury says man sick VANCOUVER (CP> A man who believed that he was Jesus Christ and that all others were inhabitants of Hell has been acquitted of an attempted murder charge on the grounds of insanity. A British Columbia Supreme Court jury, on the recommendation of the Crown and the suggestion of Mr. Justice R. P Anderson, recommended Monday that Edward William McDiarmid, 20, be held at Riverview Men- tal Hospital for an indefinate stay. McDiarmid was charged after a woman was stabbed twice in the back and twice in the chest while she was walk- ing along a downtown street Jan. 9. New B-l bomber tested PALMDALE, Calif.

This is Pope Paul's second close involvement in holy year observances. In 1950 as the Vatican's substitute secretary of state, he helped prepare Pope Pius' mid-century holy year that drew 1.5 million pil- grims. The Vatican estimates this time about two million will visit Rome. The first jubilee holy year was held in 1300 by Pope Boni- face, who stipulated they should take place every 100 years. In 1389 Pope Urban reduced the time to 33 years to corre- spond with the belief that Jesus Christ lived that many years. Then in 1470 Pope Paul II ruled they should be held every quarter of a century. Jubilee years have been held regularly since then. Cheery ferretings all our friends and neijililiors.
