Several others were injured. Slump in employment affects many people By JAMES NELSON OTTAWA (CP) - The midwinter slump in employment hit hard last month at both managerial and skilled and unskilled workers, but there was a fractional improvement in jobs for clerical, technical and professional workers. The Dominion Bureau of Statistics Friday released January employment figures classified by job occupations. The trend was d o w n, as it usually is in January, for nearly all classes of occupations. Employment for all workers totalled nearly 7.7 million in January, compared with an average of nearly 7.9 million in November, December and January. DBS earlier reported that in the week ended Jan. 16 there were an estimated 688,000 unemployed, or eight per cent of the total labor force. When seasonally adjusted, however, the unemployment figures showed a declining trend. SLIGHT IMPROVEMENT The employment figures classified by occupation showed that in January there were 1.12 million professional and technical workers, up six-tenths of one per cent from the three-month average, and nearly 1.2 clerical Workers, up one per cent from the average. Among craftsmen, production process workers, and related workers, however, there was a drop in January of almost three per cent to 1.8 million jobs from nearly 1.9 million in the three-month average. Managerial positions declined . In January to 767,000 from the average of 777,000 in November, December and January. The number of employed laborers and unskilled workers other than those engaged in agriculture, fishing, logging and mining, declined four per cent in January to 290,000 from 302,000 in the three-month period. FEWER BUILDERS Classified by industry, last month's figures showed improvements of less than one per cent in mining, quarrying, and oil wells; finance, insurance, and real estate; community, business and personal services; and in public administration. There was a sharp drop - usual for the season-in employment in the construction industry to 389,000 from the three-month average of 437,000. Manufacturing employment was down 1.3 per cent to 1.71 million from nearly 1.72 million in November, December and January. Employment in wholesale, retail and other trades was down 2.5 per cent to 1.33 million from 1.36 million. LONDON AP)-Life with the Beatles wasn't all the "Yeh, yeh, yeh" that rocketed them to riches and fame. John Lennon, George Harrison and Ringo Starr told of what it was like to be a Beatle in affadavits read to a British court. The three, who did not appear in court, are fighting a bid by Paul McCartney to have the Beatles' business affairs put in the hands of a receiver. McCartney also wants the group's partnership dissolved. The hearing resumes today. This is what the court was told happened: The cracks that caused the Beatles' breakup opened with the death in 1967 of Brian Epstein, the manager who masterminded their meteoric success. They widened when John, the leader, married Japanese actress-singer Yoko Ono and drifted away from the other three. And they gaped when Paul fought Lennon to stop American Allan Klein from taking over the management of the Beatle company, Apple Corp. He wanted his father-in-law, a New York lawyer,., to take over instead.' But Ringo told the court that in spite of the quarrels "my own view is that all four of us together could even yet work out everything satisfactorily." McCartney says the group is broke, with tax liabilities towering over assets. The other members of the quartet say the finances are in good shape, although Klein rescued them in 1969 after seven years in which their combined earnings were $10 million a year. A long-playing record recently released by George Harrison is expected to roll up royalties of around $2 million alone. Lennon estimated that while they haven't made a tour for several years or cut a disc since 1968, the Beatles can expect an enormous income for years to come from repackaging of their songs. Of personal relations among the four, 30-year-old Lennon said flareups involved the whole group but mostly George and Paul. Harrison said that inevitable quarrels erupted while the group was on tour "cooped up together in a plane, car or hotel and herded together from place to place." ' He added that at the height of the Beatles' fame, Paul stall showed a "superior attitude" to him musically. "At the same time, I was helping to record Ms songs, and into the bargain, I was having to put up with Mm telling me how to play my own musical instrument"-a guitar. Cab driver bills palace for damage in accident LONDON (AP) - Patrick Ling says he's billing Buckingham Palace �25 for the damage Princess Anne did to the back of his cab. � The Queen's 20-y e a r -o 1 d daughter was driving her new Reliant Scimitar sports car when it bumped into Ling's taxi Wednesday on busy Brompton Road. "I had to brake sharply, and there was a hell of a loud bang as the other car bashed into me," the 34-year-old cabbie told reporters. Premier fired MOSCOW (AP) - Rakh mankul Kurbanov has been fired as premier of the important Soviet agricultural republic of Uzbekistan, the regional newspaper Pravda Vostoka reported. No reason was given for the ouster and no successor was named. "I got out to exchange a few hard words with this young blonde at the wheel. Then this bloke came from the sports car and told me to send the bill to Buckingham Palace. "I asked him who the hell was driving that thing and he told me Princess Anne. 'What are you doing,' I said, 'teaching her to drive?' He said no and I said he should be." No one was hurt, but the collision broke Ling's taillight and twisted a fender. He estimated the repairs would cost �25. Ling said the princess "just sat there sort of shocked and stoney-faced" while he talked to her escort, identified later as her personal detective. 1 The Queen and Prince Philip gave their daughter the car as a Christmas present. The accident was her first since she passed the driving test three years ago. SAY, AREN'T YOU There is something familiar here, with a reason.

Bill Saunders said in an inter-' view the demonstrations could involve gathering at the entrance of the Royal York Hotei as the prime minister arrives and holding a "people's banquet" by distributing food at the hotel entrance. Groups participating in the demonstrations are expected to include the Just Society, the Women's Liberation Movement, the Young Communist League, the Committee for a Free Quebec and three tenants' associations. They will protest federal government policies on unemployment, welfare, abortion and "repressive legislation" such as the Public Orcvr Act, Mr. Saun-ders said. \ BECAME EXTINCT Dinosaurs became extinct about 60 million years ago.

Raps hoopla at political conventions OTTAWA (CP) - Frank Howard, the MP for Skeena and announced candidate for the national leadership of the New Democratic Party, turned thumbs down here on hospitality suites and the usual hoopla associated with political conventions. Mr. Howard said the choice of a successor here in April to New Democrat Leader T. C. Douglas and the development of party policies "are very serious matters and shouldn't be considered in a circus-type atmosphere." "Accordingly, we are going to refrain from preparing large numbers of posters, placards, hats, buttons, ribbons and the other paraphernalia that have been associated with the old-time parties and American political conventions." In most cases, Mr. Howard said in a news release, the use of promotional displays is a cover-up for lack of policy. He said he isn't going to set up "any so-called hospitality suites for these tend to become booze dispensaries and no real effort is made in them to discuss serious matters in a serious way." Tea and coffee would be served.
