THE COST OF LIVING COUNCIL removed restrictions yester-
day on wage increases for workers making less than $1.90 an
hour.
This decision, protested by some members of Congress, established
$1.90 as the hourly wage rate level below which wages may be raised
without regard to the 5.5 per cent wage standard established by the
Pay Board.
Previously, the council has ruled that wages below the current
federal minimum wage of $1.60 an hour were exempt from controls.
Some Congressmen criticized the $1.90 cut-off point as too low.

EQUAL EMPLOYMENT LEGISLATION moved closer to pas-
sage as the Senate rejected a proposed amendment to prohibit
federal requirements that employers meet minority hiring goals
or quotas.
In offering the amendment, voted down 44-33 Friday, Senator
Sam Ervin (D-N.C.) claimed the government is forcing employers to
practice reverse discrimination in violation of the 1964 Civil Rights Act.
Ervin and other senators are attempting to block passage of a
bill to strengthen the 1964 law's ban on discrimination in employment
practices.

"NO-FAULT" INSURANCE GUIDELINES were proposed by a
special committee of the American Bar Association yesterday.
According to their plan, an injured passenger or driver would
receive up to $2,000 to cover his medical costs and loss of wages.
The payment would be made by the victim's insurance companyf
regardless of who was at fault in the accident. Under this modified
plan, the victim has the option of passing up the payment and suing
the driver he considers at fault.
The committee's recommendations will be presented to the ABA's
policy-setting House of Delegates at a meeting in New Orleans next
month, with formal action to come next summer.
BRAZILIAN MILITARY POLICE killed three terrorist leaders
and arrested at least 60 other political terrorists last week, informed
sources reported.
It was the largest number of arrests since November, 1970, when
police arrested an estimated 2,000 persons in a nationwide blitz, called
"Operation Birdcage."
The government has apparently successfully infiltrated and dis-
posed of major terrorists groups, killing most of the leaders.
DOM MINTOFF, Malta's prime minister, suspended negotia-
tions with Britain and NATO yesterday. The talks over British usej
of Malta's military bases ended in heated bickering, but should
resume in Rome in about two weeks.
Mintoff wanted a $25 million cash payment in addition to $35
million in annual rent for the bases. However, NATO has only offered
an $18.8 million financial package.
NATO also wants exclusive rights to Malta's bases so that
Mintoff will not be able to allow the Soviet Mediterranean fleet to use
the bases.,

S. Viets bolster

Commu nist drive,
SAIGON (M - South Vietnamese field commanders and
police have been put on standby alert in preparation for next
month's anticipated Communist offensive, sources reported
yesterday.
Police activity has been stepped up at checkpoints around
Saigon, including house-to-house searches to prevent the
Communists from caching arms and ammunition in the capi-
tal.
Many officials, including U.S. Ambassador Ellsworth
Bunker, expect the offensive to take place in the central
highlands, citing the build-up of Communist forces in that
area during the past several months. They also predict an
increase of incidents in Saigon during the Tet lunar new
year celebrations in February.

DETROIT (1')- Campaign,
GM, a Washington-based pro-
ject associated with consumer
advocate Ralph Nader. has ex-
panded its efforts to include
battles with Ford Motor Com-
pany and Chrysler Corporation.
"Ward's Auto World". a lead-
ing automotive industry mata-
zine. reported Friday that the
Project for Corporate R-)onsi-
bioity. th Ysponsor of C- ; uamn
GM, has submitted ┬░reposas to
Ford and Chrysler for inclusion
in proxy statements at thoir
annual meetings this spring.
The proposals call for the ex-
pansion of the companies' board
of directors to include "public
representatives " such as a wo-"
man, a black, an employe or a
union repressnta tive. Another
proposal seeks open disclosure
in the annual reports of
amounts spent on safety, envi-
ronmental and minority hiring
programs. and details of auto
recall campaigns.

Ford and Chrysler, according
to company spokesmen, are re-
viewing the proposals, but have
not yet decided to include them
on their ballots for a vote by
stockholders.
If the companies exclude the
proposals, Campaign GM can
take its case to the Securities
and Exchange Commission and
Gssh~y force inclusion.
O 4 rat Motors shareholders
i-ject-d similar proposals at
th ir last two annual meetings.
In response to pressure from
Campaign GM. General Motors
formed committees to study the
company's social roles, advise
on rnvironmental matters and
added a back director to the
board.
Campaign GM attempted un-
succ-ssfully last year to force
the University to vote its
shares of General Motors stock
in approval of the proposals, a
move that was rejected by the
Regents.

This latest increase of defen-
sive activity comes in the wake
of President Nixon's announce-
ment of an eight-point peace plan
for Vietnam. Nixon's plan has
been strongly criticized by the
North Vietnamese.
Despite the defensive activity, a
S o u t h Vietnamese spokesman
complained that reports of an
impending offensive by the Com-
munist command have been "ex-
aggerated."
"We don't see anything like that
at all," said Col. Le Trung Hein,
spokesman for Saigon military
headquarters. He conceded that
U.S. and South Vietnamese of-
ficials have been predicting va-
rious types of enemy offensives
but asserted "that report, when
it came to you, was exaggerated
and it was exaggerated by some of
the news agencies"
Gen. Cao Van Vien, chairman
of South Vietnam's joint general
staff, flew to the central high-
lands Friday to inspect the string
of bases along the border.
In the continuing air war, a
U.S. F105 jet fighter Friday at-
tacked a radar defense site, about
74 miles from Saigon, the closest
strike to Saigon this year. the
U.S. command reported.

Nixon picks
woman for
eeon ccil
WASHINGTON (IP) - Marina
Whitman, a member of the Price
Commission and a sp cialist , in
international economics, will be-
come the first woman to serve on
President N i x o n ' s influential
Council of Economic Advisors,
pending Senate confirmation of
the appointment.
Nixon, who announced yester-
day the nomination of Whitman
to the three-member council,
said he was pleased that a wo-
man was found for the position.
Critics have often attacked Nix-
on for his poor record in the se-
lection of few women for im-
portant positions within his ad-
ministration. With her appoint-
ment, Whitman would become one
of the highest ranking women in
Nixon's administration.
Whitman, an economics pro-
fessor at the University of Pitts-
burgh, said she is "delighted to
be given a chance to tackle some
of the most challenging problems
there are today."
At a news briefing, Herbert
Stein, chairman of the council,
said Whitman's work on the coun-
cil will center on the relationship
of international economics and
the price-wage control system.
Whitman's successor on the
Price Commission has not yet been
announced.

These are just seven of the many
wrong reasons for having a baby.
There's only one right reason:
because you really want one.
And the right time is when you

show that more than half the preg.
nancies each year are accidental!)
That's not having babies for
wrong reasons.
That's just being wrong.
