Unemployment
hits 6 per cent

Greeks charge ex-dictator
Papadopoulos with treason

WASHINGTON (YP) - The na-
tion's unemployment rate jump-
ed to 6 per cent in October for
the first time in three years,
emphasizing the economy's
slide into recession.
The Labor Department re-,
ported yesterday that 5.5 mil-
lion Americans were without
jobs last month, 200,000 more
than in September and an in-'
crease of 1.3 million over the
past year.
The October unemployment
level, up from 5.8 per cent in
September, was the highest
since a similar 6 per cent rate
in November 1971 when the
country was still trying to shrug
off the 1970 recession. The last
time the jobless rate ways above
6 per cent was in November
1961.
COMING JUST before Tues-1
day's elections, the figures were
another blow to the Ford ad-
ministration, already under
from Democrats for its hand-
ling of the econmy.
Administration economic ad-
visers, who now acknowledge
the current economic condition
is likely yto be judged a reces-
sion, predict unemployment will
rise to 7 per cent by mid-1975.
The October unemployment
figures do not include layoffs
announced within the past two
weeks, especially those in the
auto industry - a fact noted
by AFL-CIO President George
Menay.
THE RECESSION is growing
rapidly and the administration
has no program to halt it,"
Meany declared. "That is why
the AFL-CIO has urged workers
to vote next Tuesday for con-
gressional candidates who will
put America back to work and
provide adequately and imme-
diately for the unemployed."
Sen. William Proxmire (D-
Wis.) at a hearing of the Sen-
ate-House Economic Commit-!
tee, said the new figures "de-
pict a very serious situation."
He said President Ford's eco-
nomic policies appear largely
aimed at curtailing demand and
"this will aggravate the situa-

tion."
JULIUS SHISKIN, commis-
sioner of labor statistics, de-
clined at the hearing to charac-
terize the present economic sit-!
uation as a recession.f
But he said he agreed with""
Proxmire "that this is a very
serious economic situation. It is
not anything to cheer about."
Shiskin said total employment
had dropped in previous slumps
while currently it is holding
steady or rising slightly. {
President Ford has proposed;
legislation that would extend;
jobless benefits and provide ad-
ditional public service jobs, but
most Democrats and some Re-
publicans in Congress are push- 11 h
ing a much larger program.

Surtax plan in trouble

WASHINGTON (MP) - The
Ford administration has nearly
given up all hope of getting its
5 per cent surtax proposal ap-
proved by Congress in its pres-
ent form, informed administra-
tion sources say.
Although Treasury Secretary
William Simon said Thursday
the administration has "just be-
gun to fight" in support of the
surtax, Treasury sources say
they believe Simon realizes a
compromise will be necessary.

been misunderstood as being

really is, but they do not be-
