Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 3, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, January 3, 1975 News in brief Gossip part of CIA file NEW YORK (AP) The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) compiled a dossier of second-hand gossip about entertainer Eartha Kill's social life al the requesl of Ihe Secret Service in 1968, bul produced no evidence of foreign intelligence connec- lions, the New York Times reported in today's editions. The Times said the CIA's report was prompted by Miss Kill's crilicism of Ihe Viet- nam war during a While House luncheon Jan. 18, 1968, during Ihe administration of Ihe late president Lyndon B. Johnson. The newspaper said Ihe re- porl, supplied a week after the Secret Service request, show- ed the CIA had been keeping files on Miss Kill since 1956, eighl years after she began appearing professionally in Europe and the Uniled States. It claimed the material on her had been developed from "confidential" sources in Paris and New York City, the said. Indians still on church estate GRESHAM, Wis.

"As far as we're concerned, they're the vulnerable ones." The Indians said they claim- ed ownership of the land on the basis of treaties signed in the 1800s thai provide that religious lands no longer used as missions or schools should revert to the Indian owners. They said the site should be- come an Indian hospital or school. Crash blamed on engineer NEW YORK (AP) Penn Central Railroad officials say a collision of two commuter trains which injured 226 per- sons was caused when a veteran engineer who is due to retire this month failed to heed a warning signal. The sudden impact derailed four cars Thursday morning and sent'flying scores of Ihe passengers on the two trains. Mosl of Ihe injured suf- fered facial culs and broken noses.

Saigon takes beating SAIGON (AP) Radio Hanoi said today that Communist-led forces cap- tured Phuoc Binh's airslrip and inflicted heavy casualties on government defenders in the battle for the isolated provincial capital. South Vietnamese officials had no immediate comment on the Hanoi claim but government military sources acknowledged its forces had suffered heavy losses. President Nguyen Van Thieu issued an appeal to world opinion declaring the attacks a "large-scale offen- sive" and claiming North Vielnam had committed its 7th Division lo Ihe battle. Military officials said the North Vietnamese and Viet Cong hit the besieged city 75 miles north of Saigon with in- fantry, tank and artillery assaults. The officials said a tank column led ground forces against government positions in the southern part of the city and street fighting was reported tonight. Government military sources said more than South Vietnamese soldiers had been killed, wounded or missing in Phiioe Long province since Dec. 14 when the North Vietnamese began their first assaults.

JUST NORTH STORE ONLY 516 13th North 327-4855 WASHINGTON (AP) The United States unemployment rate soared to 7.1 per cent of the work force in December as Americans without jobs totalled more than six million for the first time since the Great Depression, the gqvern- ment reported today. The 7.1-per-cent rate itself was the highest in. 13 years. Not since 1940 when the U.S. was shaking off the effects of the Depression have more than six million been unemployed. About 8.1 million were jobless then, about 14.6 per cent of that era's smaller labor force. The labor department said the December increase in the jobless rats, from 6.5 per cent in November, was the biggest monthly increase since Oc- tober, 1960, when the un- employment rate also rose six-tenths of a per cent. The unemployment rate now is at its highest level since May, 1961, when it also stood at 7.1 per cent. The last time it exceeded that level was during the 1958 recession when it hit 7.4 per cent in August of that year. Heavy layoffs in the auto in- dustry helped boost the number of unemployed last month by to a total of 6.5 million. There were 000 workers unable to find employment in November, the government said. The labor department said most of the increase in joblessness last month was traced to layoffs as the number of unemployed who had lost their last jobs rose by to 3.2 million. President Ford, who return- ed Thursday night from a ski- ing vacation in the Rockies, will meet Saturday with his key economic policy advisers and today's job report is almost certain to receive much attention. With un- employment rising more sharply than anticipated as the recession worsens, the president will be under increased pressure to con- sider major tax cuts in order to help stimulate the economy. During the last 12 months, unemployment has increased by more than two million. The U.S. unemployment rate averaged 5.6 per cent in 1974. The jobless rate in 1973 averaged 4.9 per cent. The labor department said job losses last month affected both white-and blue-collar workers and almost every ma- jor worker category. The December unemploy- ment figures, which reflect layoffs in automobile-related industries as well as those resulting from a coal strike, were based on data gathered before the middle of the month. Layoffs have contin- ued to spread since then and will push the jobless rate for January still higher.

But Connally said in an in- terview that doctors treating Cuba sale block denied by IBM OTTAWA (CP) Lome K. Lodge, president of Toronto- based IBM Canada Ltd., denied reports Thursday that its U.S. parent had blocked a sale of typewritters to Cuba by the Canadian sub- sidiary for of fear of running afoul of the U.S. Trading with the Enemy Act. In a tersely worded state- ment following almost a full day of meetings about the sub- ject, Mr. Lodge said: "Contrary to what has been reported in the Toronto Star the discussions with the de- partment of industry, trade and commerce have not been blocked by any action .of our parent company in the United States. "Since these discussions are still in progress, it would be inappropriate for us to com- ment any further at this time."

Cuban trade officials in Montreal had stated earlier this week that Cuba had tried for the last 18 months to buy typewriters and spare parts from IBM, but had been turn- ed down by the Canadian head office in Toronto. IBM Canada refuses to con- firm or deny these reports, apparently because of the current controversy sur- rounding the influence of U.S. enemy trading laws on Canada.'s foreign trade. The U.S. laws became an is- sue in Canada after Litton In- dustries Ltd. of Beverly Hills, Calif., turned down a export sale to Cuba by its Canadian subsidiary, Cole division of Litton Business Equipment Ltd., based in Toronto. Litton subsequently relented, and said it is apply- ing to the U.S. state depart- ment for an exemption to allow its Canadian sub- sidiary's sale. Trade Minister Alastair Gil- lespie had blasted Litton's ac- tion in denying Cole's sale as an "intolerable interference" in Canadian trade. Canadian trade officials have been meeting with state depart- ment officials in Washington about the stalled sale. The U.S. Trading with the Enemy Act makes it an offence for a U.S. company or its subsidiaries to deal with countries, like Cuba, that are declared to be enemies. Offenders can be fined or jail- SUNRISE SATURDAY SUNSET Lethbridge...... 35 28 Medicine Hat 31 22 Pincher Creek... 32 26 Grande Prairie 27 13 Edmonton 21 0 Peace River___29 11 Jasper.......... 29 25 Banff........... 25 19 Calgary......... 34 15 Victoria 44 37 .35 Prince Rupert... 44 30 .82 Penticton....... 33 30 Kamloops....... 36 25 Vancouver...... 44 38 .21 Saskatoon.......30 8 Regina 31 1 Winnipeg 28 11 .02 Toronto......... 32 22 .11 Ottawa 26 12 Montreal .......28 10 Quebec......... 22 2 St. John's....... 40 31 .37 Halifax......... 33 15 .02 Charlottetown 31 21 .15 Fredericton..... 31 9 .02 Chicago 32 30 .15 New York 38 26 Miami.......... 77 67 Washington 47 30 Los Angeles..... 61 41 San Francisco 57 44 Denver......... 37 13 Las Vegas...... 49 29 Phoenix 53 30 Athens 46 37 Paris........... 39 35 London......... 48 36 Berlin.......... 43 37 Amsterdam..... 46 36 Brussels........ 44 35 Madrid......... 52 34 Moscow 28 25 Stockholm...... 43 39 Buenos Aires___ 89 62 Tokyo.......... 48 32 Hong Kong...... 64 57 Singapore....... 86 73 FORECAST Lethbridge, Medicine Hat Today, mostly sunny.
