CI904 MADRID (API - "Sunny Spain" was still shivering through i t s coldest winter of the century today, with half the country blankeed by snow and ice. In the south, Cordoba experienced its first snowfall since 1953 as the temperature drop- MANILA (API - Benjamin^ Mendoza y Amor went on trial today charged with attempting to assassinate Pope Paul and a witness testified the pontiff was struck twice on the chest during the attack at the Manila airport. The hearing was adjourned after the testimony until Jan. 13, when a team of psychiatrists is expected to report whether they consider Mendoza sane. The Bolivian artist has pleaded not guilty to the charge. Jolly Bugarin. director of the Philippines' national bureau of investigation, was the only witness today. He testified he saw Mendoza, 3a, dressed as a priest, approach the Pope Nov. 27. a few minutes after he arrived on his Asian-Pacific tour. Suddenly, Bugarin testified, a white cloth flew in the air. "The person in black made a lunging move toward the Pope. I saw the knife thrust at the left breast of the Pope.'' Under cross-examination, Bugarin told defence counsel Celso Fernandez the Pope was struck twice. Fernandez attacked the testimony, contending it was unlikely the assailant could have struck the Pope twice with a knife without hurting him. There have been conflicting reports as to whether the Pope was struck, and his only acknowledgment of an attack was in a speech Dec. 6 at the Vatican when he said the "insane gesture" was "without any ne From AP-REUTER JERUSALEM (CP) - Peace negotiators from Israel and Egypt were flying today to rejoin mediator Gunnar V. Jarring at the United Nations. Israel's ambassador to the United Nations, Yosef Tekoah, left Tel Aviv this morning and said he would meet with Jarring Tuesday. Premier Golda Meir's coalition decided Sunday to send him for preliminary discussions on procedural questions. Egypt's UN ambassador, Mohammed Hassan el Zayyat, met with President Anwar Sadat Sunday after a week of consultations with other Egyptian leaders. He left for New York today. The third party to the Jarring talks, Jordan, was reported planning to replace its representative with a more moderate man. Arab sources in Jerusalem who claim access to Jor-d a n i a n government officials said Muhammad H. EL Farra, Jordan's UN ambassador and a Palestinian, would be replaced temporarily by Jordan's ambassador to the United States. Abdul Hamid Sharaf. Jarring arrived in New York S'aturday night but would not say when the indirect Arab-Israeli peace talks would resume. Israel broke them off Sept. 6, arming its guerrillas in Leba-! non. These are major concessions lo tlie Lebanese government, which is disturbed because guerrilla camps in southern Lebanon have been the targets of two raids by Israeli commandos during the last month in retaliation for guerrilla attacks on installations and villages in Israel. In Tel Aviv, the Israeli defence ministry announced that the governor of the Gaza Strip dismissed the mayor of Gaza charging that Egypt was cheating on the ceasefire. Jarring was recalled last week after the Knesset, Israel's parliament, endorsed the government's decision to start talking again. Jarring today helped Secretary-General U Thant put the finishing touches on a report to the Security Council on recent efforts to bring peace to the Middle East. The report, to be made public Tuesday, is expected to announce resumption of peace talks as well as reveal new details of the bargaining positions of the parties. GUERRILLAS STRIKE Meanwhile. Arab guerrillas from Syria held up a UN observation post on the Golan Heights Sunday and made off with the post's transmitter, documents and flashlight, the Israelis repored. The two UN observers in the post, on Israel's side of the ceasefire line, were unharmed. The Israelis said they knew of no motive for the holdup. In Beirut, Abu Ay ad, second in commmand of the Al Fatah guerrilla organization, announced that the group is clOS- i Wednesday, Dec. J3, Hamilton School . _ , ,. u  N.S. 1. L. Smith, O. Soicei 2.

Informants said he was fired because he failed to co-operate with the military government and refused to use the city's surplus funds for the benefit of the people. There were 80 murders in the Gaza Strip in 1970, many believed caused by rivalry between guerrilla groups. Two Israeli children were killed and their parents injured S'aturday when a grenade was thrown into their car. Bridge results Wednesday, Dec, 14, Ladies Club 1. H. Rhynas, L. Lancaster; 1. M.

CI 897 Mr. Reierson said in a statement that seasonal indicators suggest the current 5.3-per-cent unemployed rate in Alberta will increase early in the year before easing in the spring. He says most of the answers are federal responsibilities because they relate to persisting price and cost increases, high interest rates, troubled financial markets and serious difficulties in the wheat economy of Western Canada. In a year-end statement. Mr. Reierson says there were several significant changes in Alberta labor legislation during 1970. The labor act was consolidated to uptdate working conditions and labor standards to meet changing industrial requirements. The minimum wage was increased, more protection was given female workers and Alberta employees were given more paid holidays.
