The unemployment rate had remained stuck at 4.8 per cent since June The labor department said I he big decline was posted be- cause employment was ex- tremely strong in rising by 570.000 to a total 85.7 million on a seasonally- iidjusti'd basis. It was the second straight monlh that the number ol peo- ple with jobs had in- dicating that the country's economy is perhaps much stronger than even govern- ment economists have been into a more certain one. In the last month the tit-for- tat fighting that has prevailed since the January cease-fire has taken on a new tone and a new scale. both sides have become shriller and angrier in their denunciations and ac- cusations. President Nguyen Van Thieu has been touring the country -warning that the Communists are preparing for a spring offensive and has been telling his commanders to stage preemptive strikes against menancing for- mations. At the same time the Com- munists have given orders to their troops to retaliate at place and in appropriate forms and Last week the North Vietamese military newspaper. Quan Doi Nhan Dan. accused the Thieu government of crimes against the people of South and threaten- ed in return. Both sides have been notching up their military ac- tions. The North who wiped out a ranger camp west of Pleiku on Sept. have continued to attack in the central highlands and are reported to be infiltrating their division size 470th tran- sportation group across the the coast. The South Vietnamese air force has been striking repeatedly in Binh Dinh. on the central in the strategic region north and northwest of Saigon most in Chau Doc on the Cambodian a long-time infiltra- tion corridor. In several battalion-size engagements notably in Tay Ninh and Dinh Tuong provinces the South Viet- namese army has been badly bloodied. Throughout country the Communists begun to make key arteries less blowing up mining trains and attacking outposts. The South Vietnamese believe that this is sign that their of Communist-controlled areas is taking before the they say. the Com- munists had an economic interest in keeping the roads open.

All of that intransigence has led to political stalemate and more' war. Water level restoration suggested EDMONTON Recommendations for restoration of water levels in the Peace Athabasca delta of northeastern Alberta will be made in an interim report by the Alberta Environment Conservation Authority by Dec. 1. The chairman of the authority. Dr. Walter says the report will be filed with the Alberta and Saskatchewan governments in time to permit a spring start of construction on a remedial dam in the delta. The EGA held public hearings in September on ways the low water levels in the 1.5 million acre delta could be restored. Operation of the Bennett Dam on the Peace river in British Colum- bia was blamed for the lower water levels. A federal-provincial task force recommended construc- tion of an underwater weir on the outlet of Lake Athabasca to back up water in the delta. Dr. Trost said he expects a joint submission and meeting w.ith the Chipewyan and Metis residents of the delta area before an interim report is filed.
