than employment but after ad justment for seasonal variations the increases balanced out The June unemployment rate1 in Illinois rose ot 43 per cent up from 39 per icent in May ac cording to the Bureau of Em ployment Security The state bureau said its sea sonally adjusted figures showed a rise in unemployment from 210 000 May and 189000 a year ago to a totalof 222000 in June The bureau blamed the in crease primarily on a drop in summer jobs for young people and layoffs caused by the monthlong truckers strike against Illinois contractors Seasonallyadjusted national unemployment stood at 48

tale of a drunken and de spondent CIA agent who appar ently sat down with a Soviet KGB operative somewhere in Latin America and told him what he knew has emerged as a result of a Senate Watergate Committee inquiry into the ac tivities of the Central Intelli gence Agency The KGB the Soviet Commit tee on State Security combines Internal security and foreign Intelligence functions A report issued by the Water gate committee this week con tains a cryptic mention of a W H that highly reliable sources said resulted from the conversation and its ensuing ef feet on many of the agencys clandestine operations The ini tials W H are CIA parlance for Western Hemisphere The agent clearly provided information of value to the Russians because the CIAs deputy director for plans later told the Watergate committee according to its report that the affair threatened to compro mise Western Hemispere oper ations The CIA man was described by sources as despondent disgruntled with the agency and in his cups

overseas employes of the Mullen com pany A number of other American multinational companies with interests in Western Europe or the Far East have traditionally furnished such cover for CIA opera to

conspired to tap telephones at the Democratic Partys national headquarters here Although the companys pres ident Robert F Bennett has said that the firm was not serv ing as a cover organization for Hunt the committee report notes that Hunts covert se curity clearance was extended by the CIA when he left the agency in The CIAs reluctance to tell Mullen officers that the com panys cover had been breached accordingto one source stem med from its desire to conceal from the Russians its knowledge of the clandestine contact be tween the Russian agent and the CIA man who has since re Nikon made
