Of Three-State Crim
LANSING (,A)-Striking in a
widespread series of raids Monday
night and early yesterday, police
arrested 27 persons on a range of,
charges that included gambling,
auto theft, armed robery and con-
spiracy to murder.
Michigan Atty. Gen. Frank Kel-
ley said the arrested persons were
part of a single "large-scale crim-
inal operation" which had branch-
ed out from Flint to other parts
of the state and to Ohio and Pen-
Kelley said warrants had been
issued for the arrest of another 11
persons in the same alleged con-
spiracy of crime.
One of the arrests was made in

Unemployment Rate Hits
Hi hest Level
WASHINGTON (P)-- The na-
tion's economy experienced a
"disappointing job slump in Oc-
tober, falling to the highest un-
employment rate in two years,"
the government said yesterday.
The 4.3 per cent jobless rate
reflected the sharpest two-month
rise in seven years and indicated
that the number of Americans out
of work totaled 500,000 more
than there were a year earlier,
the Labor Department said.
While total employment in-
creased slightly to 75.1 million,
the rate of growth was slower and
millions of employes were work-
ing shorter hours, the report said.
"Certainly disappointing," was
the way Commissioner Arthur M.
Ross of the Bureau of Labor Sta-
tistics summed it up.
But Ross declined to predict
whether a worse economic slow-
down appeared in the making and
avoided questions as to whether
the new figures bolstered Presi-,
dent Johnson's argument for an
income tax increase.
In previous reports on employ-
ment and living costs, Ross us-
ually interpreted latest economic
figures as supporting the need
for higher taxes.
Johnson's proposed 19 per cent
income tax surcharge is held up
in the House Ways and Means
"It is premature to attempt a
firmer explanation" of the job
slump, Ross said.
The President's Council of Eco-
nomic Advisers, often quick to use
new economic figures to back the
case for a tax hike, had no com-
ment on the report.

white workers rose from 3.6 to
3.8 per cent, and the rate for non-
whites-mostly Negroes--went up
from 7.9 to 8.8 per cent.
Total employment rose 550,000
in October, the expected increase,
but an unexpectedly large rise of
600,000 in the labor force erased
the job gains.
The year's increase in employ-
ment was entirely in such service-
type jobs as state and local gov-
ernment and retail trade.
The bureau said much of the
260,000 decline in manufacturing
jobs the last year was due to
workers on strikes - running at
the highest level in 15 years.
Strikers are not counted as un-
employed, but they are stricken
from job lists.
The figures reflected a real
slowdown in the growth of manu-
facturing employment, the' bu-

Five persons also were charged
with conspiracy to murder Charles

He said a two-month investiga-
tion of the alleged crime ring in-
volved his office, federal agents,
and police in Flint, Detroit, Livo-
nia, Ohio and Pennsylvania.
"The investigation revealed that
several individuals originally oper-
ating out of the Flint area had
set up a large-scale criminal oper-
ation and had been involved in
robberies, burglaries, check pass-
ing, car theft, prostitution opera-
tions and gambling in various
parts of the state and in Ohio and
Pennsylvania," Kelley said.
The same persons and others,
Kelley added, were involved in a

operation in which betting cards
were circulated in state bars and'
