But as the burly character actor who plays the role of a southern-talking sheriff in a televisioi commercial, Hig- gins is one of the most recog- U.S. jobless total hits 10-year high WASHINGTON (AP) The number of out-of-work Ameri- cans rose in January to the highest point in 10 years, but seasonal factors shaved the rate of unemployment back to six per cent, the government says. Labor Secretary James D. Hodgson hailed the decline of two-tenths of one per cent in the rate as "very saying it may mean the crest of the high joblessness that has plagued the Nixon administra- tion. The labor department re- ported that the unemployment rate actually was worse in De- cember than the six per cent originally announced, climbing to 6.2 per cent on the basis of revised figures. It said the number of unem- ployed persons rose by in January to 5.4 million, the highest figure since February and March, 1961, when the United States experienced some of the highest joblessness in his- tory. But seasonal adjustment re- moved nearly a million persons the unemployment calcula- tions, giving an equivalent 110.C03 decline. GM strike made no difference TORONTO (CP) Sales fig- ures show the three-month Gen- eral Motors of Canada Ltd. strike In 1970 did not help the other car manufacturers dis- pose of 1971 models, say L. G. Rice, president of American Motors (Canada) Ltd. "I have been in the business 21 years and this is the first time it has been so evident a strike made no difference to the he said Thursday, commenting in an interview on the strike that began in mid- September. "People waited until the end of the strike to make Canadian unit sales by domes- tic automobile makers declined 25 per cent in the 1971-model year to end of December. Sales of General Motors were down 56-1 per cent in the period, compared with year-earlier to- tals. Ford Motor Co. of Canada Ltd. sold 5.5 per cent more cars, Chrysler Canada .Ltd., 2.7 per cent fewer and American Motors almost the same num- ber as a year earlier. Volvo Canada Ltd. of Toronto sold 21.4 per cent more. In the 1970 calendar year Volvo sold about cars. COMPETE WITH IMPORTS Mr. Rice said he did not see the new subcompacts of the do- mestic manufacturers routing imported cars in the market- place. "They've reached the satura- tion point in the West and are competing with each other he said. He noted the domestic ind try's wage rates are as much as four times higher than those of Japan. Meanwhile, a survey showed passenger car sales of the big three in Canada were ii January, down 21.9 per cent from the same month a year earlier, when there was one more selling day. Blanket ban on smoke ads SINGAPORE (Renter) Singapore will impose a blanket ban after March 1 on all adver- tising relating to smoking, the government has announced.

More than 50 police and sher- iffs organizations have made him a member. Two years ago a car manu- looking for a "Rod Steiger Heat of the Night-type" for a commercial had run through 26 appli- cants before Higgins appear- ed for an audition. "Most southerners are sen- sitive to a fake southern ac- says Bill Brinkley, 32, creator and writer of the com- mercial. Wearing a 10-gallon hat. a badge and a pair of 25-year- old yellow-tinted skeet glasses, Higgins arrived at the set. "Y'all looking for a sher- he asked. "That's one man shouted. Brinkley calls Hig- gins "a fantastic dialecti- cian." PAYS S50.000 The commercials are still being made. Higgins has done seven for network use and several regional ones, earning around a year. Higgins is cast as a folksy, hard-nosed sheriff named J. W. He is 5 feet 10 and weighs 238 pounds, and talks with a drawl saying: "Boy, y'all in a heap o' trouble, y'all drive careful now, heah" and "How in the blue Susie are The setting is Bristol, a bus- tling Tennessee-Virginia bor- der town in the foothills of the Smokey Mountains. Most law 'enforcement agen- cies enjoy Higgins's humor. As one Alabama official said: "In today's uptight world, if don't have the ability to laugh at ourselves, our future is bleak." But two Wisconsin Sheriffs Associa- tion and the Ohio highway pa- to stop buy- ing the sponsor's cars if Hig- gins wasn't taken off the air. They felt he was "demean- ing law enforcement at a time when law enforcement has enough problems." Things were smoothed out. Biggins now is a lifetime member of the Wisconsin Sheriff's Association and both departments are still buying the cars. Higgins has been a night club entertainer, singer and actor for 30 years, the last 17 in Hollywood where he ap- peared in more than 630 tele- vision shows and movies. He was the blacksmith in the Ri- fleman series. Speaker defends policy HIGH PRAIRIE is nothing unusual about reduc- ing welfare payments to recipi- ents of buffalo meat at Fort Chipewyan and the true facts of government policy are being distorted by politicians and the press, says Social Development Minister Ray Speaker. Mr. Speaker, in an interview, said the policy of reducing eery allowances to welfare re- cipients by 25 per cent in such JOE HIGGINS a year Architects pull out EDMONTON (CP) The Al- berta Association of Architects said here it has lost more than 30 per cent of its members be- cause of economic conditions in the province. The period of restraint has had "a profund effect on the state of our profession, result- ing in an exodus of human re- sources which will not readily be the association said in a brief to the cabinet. Membership now is 230, meaning more than 60 have left Alberta or the profession in the last two years. Construction in Alberta drop- ped by 35 per cent from 1969 to 1970, the brief said. SEEK HIGHER FEES The association asked the cabinet to amend the Alberta Architects' Act .to permit an increase in the scale of fees charged by architects. Architects now are entitled to a six per cent of the total cost of a project, but for a SI mil- lion building an architect gets only after paj-ing con- sulting fees. The association did not speci- fy what increases they wanted. Soldier guilty of homicide DA NANG, South Viet Sam (AP) A United States soldier was convicted today of negli- gent homicide in the shooting of a South Vietnamese teen-ager last December that touched off two days of anti-American riot- ing in Qui Nhon and Saigon.

Accidents claimed 394 lives in the year just ended com- pared with 434 fatalities hi 1969. But the council said injuries rose five per cent to from in 1969.
