Washington President Ford announced to day he has ordered the spending of million to finance 85000 public sector jobs in state and local governments Ford said he will ask Secretary of Labor Peter J Brennan to immediately flisburse million to those communities in which unemployment is highest By the end of the month Ford aid another million will be piade available under the Com Orders million spent for public sector jobs prehensive Employment Training Act Ford made the announcement to labor leaders and Senate and House members attending the second round of preeconomic summitry aimed at solving Americas twin problems of in and flation and recession The session was part of a 200 at Norge Two area plant announce the American Iiabor3ongress About 200 persons will be laid off from work at the Norge Laundry Co plant in Herrin for two weeks when the company suspends dryer production Norge President Donald E Smyser said the layoffs will begin Monday and end Sept SO bryer production Is being suspended because of a de crease in demand for the dry ers Smyser said and so the company can complete an in ventory of current stock Demand has been decreas ing because of higher utility rates

personnel will re turn to work when dryer pro duction resumes Sept 30 The Norge plant ploys about 2000 persons Shortages hit Lustaur A shortage in work orders this week led to a reduction in staff at the Lustour Cor poration printing plant on North 19th street in Murphys boro Dorothy Maynor acting manager in the absence of Supt Richard Skrobis said 39 employes were laid off The layoffs were in various departments Its just a cutback due to low work orders and we hope it will be temporary the manager said Mrs Maynor said the lay offs have no connection to a lastminute vote by union em ployes to accept a new con tract on Aug 15 continuing series of meetings leading to the White House economic summit conference Sept 2728 Todays session the second in a series of 12 White House con ferences brought in 28 AFLCIO and independent union leaders to present their ideas on how to end the inflationary spiral and revive a depressed economy George Meany of Faderation of of Industrial Organizations served as host at a coordinating breakfast at the HayAdams Hotel prior to the conference Arnold Miller empresident of the United Mine Workers and Leonard Wood cock president of the United Automobile Workers both in dependent unions wereinvited but not the International Brotherhood of Teamsters with which Meany continues to have differences Labor spokesmen have been voicing the determination of workers to achieve gains hoping to catch up with inflation in the face of a rise in the costofliving of 118 per cent in the last year After labors experience under the various control phases of the Nixon administration there is little disposition on the part of these upper echelon leaders for a return to any form of controls or less rigid guidelines Meany is convinced that any attempt to establish wage and price guidelines at this time would be just as unfair as wage and price controls during which he con tends wages were kept down while prices were permitted to rise sharply In short these top labor leaders appear in no mood to moderate their pay demands while real wages lag and tight money policies continue to squeeze the Word emphasized there will be nocontrols imposed oh wages and prices Firemen play water on burning remains of crashed airliner AP Wirepholo 69 believed dead in airliner crash Charlotte N C AP An Eastern Air Lines jet car rying 78 passengers and a crew of

John W Hushen who had said The question of pardons is under study Hushen had said the study involved all in dividuals accused or convicted of Watergaterelated crimes While Hushen would not elaborate Tuesday his an nouncement unseated that the White House was taking the in itiative in considering pardons for Watergatedefendants and that a study involving all such cases was underway The Ford statement read by Scott emphasized that a study is conducted on any request made for the pardoning of any individual Ford also said in that statement that no inference should be drawn about the out come of a study in any specific case and that his pardoning of Richard M Nixon is not related to any other case which is or may be under study White House Counsel Philip W Buchen said Tuesday mat the granting of a pardon to former president Nixon can imply guilt There is no other reason for granting a pardon Buchen said he had advised President Ford that the offer of a pardon to Nixon carried the

the proposal to state agriculture departmentdirec tor Robert Pud Williams at a press conference at SIU C today Why farmers are being charged much heavier penal ties fliis year what methods should be

for garlic has jumped from five to ten cents a bushel in the 1960s to over and occasionally over 52 a bushel this year The total amount of dockage for farm ers in Southern Illinois this year may be
