Employment up

predicted to result from a weak

THE NUMBER OF unemployed
people in the country declined last mon-
th by 164,000; the Labor Department
reported yesterday.
Michigan's unemployment rate also
dropped last month - three-tenths of a
per cent to 7.2 per cent, chiefly because
of callbacks in the auto industry, the
Michigan Employment Security Com-
mission reported yesterday.
MESC said 310,000 persons were
without jobs in the state, down 15,000
from August when the Michigan jobless
rate was 7.5 per cent.
IT MARKED the second straight
month the state's jobless rate dropped,
according to MESC.
The drop-in the national jobless rate
came as a cheerful surprise to Carter
administration economists, who had
predicted that a spurt in unemployment
during August - from 5.7 per cent to six
per cent - would continue in Septem-
It also came as a surprise to many on
Capitol Hill and may reduce pressure
there for a tax cut.
MOST OF the improvement on the
national scene occurred among women,
particularly wives. The unemployment
rate for adult women fell from 5.9 per
cent to 5.5 per cent.
The rate for adult males was un-
changed at 4.2 per cent, and there was
only a slight decline in unemployment
for blacks, from 11 per cent to 10.6 per
Among black teen-agers, the rate
rose from 30.7 per cent to 31.5 per cent.

AT THE White House, press
secretary Jody Powell said the report
was "certainly an indication the
economy is not being overrun by per-
sistent recessionary forces. The
business demand for labor is sur-
prisingly good.
On Thursday, the Labor Department
reported the largest monthly rise in
wholesale prices since 1974, a clear
signal that the current 13 per cent in-
flation rate would not abate in the mon-
ths to come.
GOVERNMENT officials said the
latest jobless figures confirm a'
dramatic slowdown in new job growth
during the past six months but fail to
provide a clear sign of labor market
Nancy Barrett, a department
economist, said the slowdown in
economic output has not yet hit the job
market. "But it just has to happen, she
said. "Eventually you will start seeing
a rise in unemployment."
The Carter administration also
forecasts unemployment rising to 6.5
per cent this year, but it predicts the
rate will peak at seven per cent by the
time of next year's presidential elec-

University Cellar employees,
management sign first contract

Smiles and a few quiet cheers ac-
companied the "historic" signing
yesterday of an "optimistic" first con-
tract between the University Cellar
employees' union and the bookstore's
board of directors.
The Industrial Workers of the World
(IWW) Local 660 ratified the final
revision of the pact Wednesday. The
signing was the final step in a tedious
eight-month-long effort to write the

U-CELLAR Assistant General
Manager John Sappington said the one-
year contract "places a lot of focus on
employee participation" in the
operations of the student bookstore in
the Michigan Union. i
The contract includes a precedent-
setting clause establishing a joint
committee of board, management and
union members to "study and produce
detailed plans for a new participatory
structure" for the store.
The eight-member committee will

leaves on fund-raising tour next day

begin meeting next week to discuss
decision-making structure and the
definition of the bargaining unit, accor-
ding to Board President Nelson Jacob-
son. A recommendation from the com-
mittee is expected in December.
ALTHOUGH THE negotiations were
punctuated by a three-day strike and
impasses on several major issues, Sap-
pington said the talks were probably
"standard" compared to other first
labor contracts.
The document signed yesterday is
"something to work with," Sappington
added. "It's a positive step in most
everyone's mind."
"I'm happy," said IWW negotiator
Felicia Cassanos after the signing. "We
can begin to work together as people

Negotiators for the union and
management have said the talks were
slowed by inexperience, and a lack of
familiarity with the contract process.
THE NON-PROFIT bookstore was
established a decade ago by the
University's Regents under pressure
from students for a discount store for
textbooks. For the first ime two union
members are guaranteed positions on
the board of directors. Three faculty
members and one administrator are on
the board, along with seven students
appointed, by the Michigan Student
Assembly (MSA).

WASHINGTON-President Carter
will formally announce his decision on
seeking a second term Dec. 4, then
leave on a four-day, four-city tour to
raise more than $2.5 million for his
campaign coffers, it was announced
"The plans are for the president to
announce his intentions for 1980 on Dec.
4,' , press secretary Jody Powell told
ASKED WHETHER there was any
chance Carter might not seek election
to a second term, Powell said, grinning,

"I think you know the answer." Then he
added: "I'm not aware of any."
Powell qualified his announcement
slightly, saying the date could be
altered "ifthere were overriding mat-
ters of national interest." But such a
situation is not anticipated, he said.
Sen. Edward Kennedy has said he is
weighing a possible challenge to Carter
for the Democratic nomination and that
he will reveal his decisio before year's
end. There has been speculation the
Massachusetts senator may enter the
race around the end of November.
POWELL SAID the idea of the an-

nouncement is being made public
because of press speculaton and the
fact "the activities surrounding the an-
nouncement would require a certain
amount of planning and a large number
of people and it's obvious . . . those
plans would become public."
The day after the announcement, the
president, wife Rosalynn and Vice
President Walter Mondale will fan out
across the country on money-raising
campaign trips, according to 4Linda
Peek, spokeswoman for the Carter-
Mondale campaign committee. The
president will visit New York, Chicago,
Atlanta and Los Angeles.
