EGYPT CALLED YESTERDAY for U.N. enforcement mea-
sures to get Israeli troops out of Arab territories occupied during
the 1967 war.
Egyptian Foreign Minister Mahmoud Riad claimed Israel has
defied U.N. demands for withdrawal of her troops and this has
confronted the United Nations with a challenge in an address toj
the General Assembly.
Riad urged the 131-nation body to "act firmly and effectively
in response to the challenge." He placed a large measure of blame on
the United States for what he described as Israel's refusal to carry
out the council's resolution of Nov. 22, 1967, urging withdrawal of
Israeli forces.

CAMBODIAN FORCES near Highway 6 on the northeast
Cambodian front were regrouping and replacement troops were
being sent in after losing the towns of Baray and Konpong
Thmar, 60 miles north of Phnom Penh.
The fighting has died down after three days of combat.
A Cambodian officer reported that troops were consolidating
positions between Tan Krasang, 70 miles northeast of Phnom Penh
and the provisional capital of Kompong Thom, 10 miles further north.
JUDGE DUDLY BONSAL signed an 80 day injunction bar-
ring resumption of a strike by longshoremen in the Port of New
York.
The government said it would press for similar action in 11
other courts with jurisdiction over East and Gulf Coast ports.
The strike by the AFL-CIO International Longshoremen's As-
sociation had affected every port from Maine to Texas from its start
Oct. 1.

Europe
England stops
buying dollars
LONDON (Ay) - The dollar fell
to new lows on European ex-
changes yesterday on the heels of
a British decision to stop sup-
Sporting it.
The Bank of England, and oth-
er government banks in Europe,
had been buying dollars by the
million to keep values from plum-
meting drastically. A rush to un-
load dollars began on Thursday
as word spread that the United'
States might agree to a devalua-
tion in terms of gold.
The Bank of England gave no
explanation for its decision.
The break came in midafternoon
and the slump quickly spread to
other European exchanges.
In London, the dollar dropped
from 40.10 pence to 40.02 in min-
utes. That was the lowest levelj
the dollar has reached in the in-E
ternational monetary crisis u n-
leashed Aug. 15 by President Nix-
on's economic program.
Dealers said the dollar would
probably have gone much lower
if the break had come at midweek.:
The French commercial r a t e
which governs most trade deal-
ings opened at 5.5125 francs, which
is the point at which the Bank
of France starts buying. At t h e
closing the dollar had climbed to
5.51775 francs.
But the dollar plunged at an
all-time low of 3.2605 West Ger-!
man marks in lively trading in
Frankfurt. Then it recovered!
slightly to close at 3.2740 marks ,
- an upward revaluation of the
mark of 11.85 per cent since May
when the West German money was
set to flat in the open market.
New lows were also reached in!
Brussells where the dollar was
fixed at 45.6980 Belgian francs, an
8.6 per cent increase from t h e
franc's parity.
The dollar dropped to 3.9150
Swiss francs, an upward revalua-a
tion of the Swiss money of about
4 per cent from parity. The dollar
had opened in Zurich at 3.9225
francs.

Unemployment
hits 6 per cent
WASHINGTON (I) - The gov-
ernment yesterday said unemploy-
ment went back up to six per cent
last month despite a rise in the
total number of working Ameri-
cans to an all-time high of 80
million.
The White House called the un-
employment increase unwelcome
Labor Secretary James Hodgson
called it unacceptable, and Sen.
William Proxmire, (D-Wis.), called
it "deeply discouraging, frustrating
and appalling.
Meanwhile, the Florida White
House said yesterday that Presi-
dent Nixon is basing his new
budget on a full employment
jconcept.
The budget will be based on the
oncept that unemployment will
not exceed four per, cent. If un-
employment exceeds that level a
budget deficit will result.
The government also said its
index of wholesale prices edged up
0.1 per cent, but an administra-
tion spokesman pointed out that
they actually declined over the
three months of the price freeze.
He said this may be the best evi-
dence that will ever be available
about the effects of the freeze.
The number of jobless Ameri-
cans totaled 4.8 million in Novem-
ber, up by a seasonally adjusted
210,000, mostly young white adults
who lost their jobs. When correct-
ed for seasonal variations, the to-
tal jobless figure is 5.2 million.
The over-all labor force was
swelled by a seasonally adjusted
390,000, mostly teenagers and
adult women seeking Christmas-
time employment.
Over-all, the ratio of job seekers
to job holders jumped up to six
per cent after declining to 5.8 per
cent the previous month. The un-
employment rate has hovered
around six per cent for a year.
The, rate of unemployment in-
creased for virtually every cate-
gory except teenagers, which re-
mained constant at 17.0 per cent,
and for non-whites, which de-
clined markedly to 9.3 per cent
from October's eight-year high of
10.7E per cent.

From Wire Service Reports
The House is expected to vote
next Tuesday on a compromise
plan to establish a vast new sys-
tem of child care centers.
The plan, approved Thursday
by the Senate 63 to 17, calls for
$2 billion to build comprehensive
day care centers for between
1 and 1.5 million children, chief-"
ly those age three to five.
In addition, the bill would es-
tablish a private, non-profit cor-
poration to administer the legal
services program now operated
by the Office of Economic Op-
portunity.
The child development plan
would provide a wide range of,
services, including day care, nu-
trition and medical and social
aid. They would be available to

children of all income levels, de-
pending on ability to pay.
Free service would be given to
the very poor, for example, chil-
dren from an urban family of
four with an' income under
$4,320 a year.
Those from families with in-
comes up to $6,000 would pay 10
per cent of their income over
$4,320.
Under the bill, the federal
government would contribute up
to 80 per cent of the cost of
operating the child development
centers with the remaining funds
to be supplied by local govern-
ment units.
The bill faces a possible veto
by President Nixon who feels
the bill should be of a more lim-
ited scope.
