Wilson claims government:
miscalculated miners' pay

Winter winds whip workers groping for the nearby John Hancock Building in Chicago yesterday.
Meanwhile, fifty mile-an-hour gusts popped windows out of Sears Tower. No injuries were re-

AIRPORT SHOOTOUT:
Hijack attempt thwarted

LONDON (Reuter) - Britain's
general election campaign erupt-
ed into angry controversy yester-
day with a charge by Opposition
Leader Harold Wilson that the
miners' crisis was caused by a
"simple error in arithmetic."
With only six days to election
day, arguments that could sway
vital votes raged hotly over whe-
ther a mistake had been made
in the way coalminers' pay was
calculated in relation to other
workers.
Statistics issued by the govern-
men's pay board Thursday night
had suggested that the miners,
now in the second week of a
disruptive strike, were entitled
to higher pay than they have
been offered, to bring them into
line with other British industries.
BUT PRIME Minister Edward
Heath yesterday flatly denied
that "any ghastly mistake" had
been made or that Parliament
had been misled. He said the al-
leged mix-up over the relative
wage standing of the miners
arose merely from different me-
thods of calculating relative
earnings.:
But Liberal Party Leader Jere-
my Thorpe - buoyed by what
he calls a breakthrough in sup-
port for his minority party -
said a "rather obvious error"
over pit pay had made every-
body look foolish.
Wilson, the Labor leader who
is trailing Heath's Conservatives
inamost opinion polls, charged
that the entire miners' dispute,

which dates back three months,
the resulting three-day work
week and industrial disruption
could have been averted by a lit-
tle common sense.
HE ALLEGED "grave incom-
petence by the government and
said that the Prime Minister
lived in a fantasy world of pay
codes, statistics and arid legal-
ism.

Yesterday's blazing new elec-
tion issue arose from the sur-
prise discovery that the Nation-
al Coal Board had been includ-
ing holiday pay in calculations of
miners' earnings while govern-
ment statistics excluded it from
rates listed for other industries
with which mining is being com-
pared.

'Gold price climbs
on foreign market

LONDON (Reuter) - Specula-
tive demand yesterday forced up
the price of gold to a record $163
an ounce.
The continuing rush to buy
the precious metal was stimulat-
ed by a sharp weakening of the
United States dollar in nervous
and hectic dealings on foreign
exchange markets.
Amid heavy selling, the dollar
declined by an average of about
one per cent against other ma-
jor currencies, according to Reu-
ter's currency index.
THE DOLLAR was adversely
affected both by the soaring
gold price and by other factors,
such as lower U.S. interest rates
and rumors of U.S. Central Bank,
dollar sales against European
currencies.

i

Underlying the latest surge in
the gold price is the widespread
belief that gold is the safest
haven for money at a time of
soaring inflation rates and gen-
eral monetary uncertainty.
Some dealers believe that gold
has now broken through into a
permanent higher price area aft-
er crossing the symbolic barrier
of $150 an ounce at the begin-
ning of the week.

tically wounded during the shoot-
ing which occurred about 7 a.m.
while the DC-9 was being board-
ed for a scheduled flight to At-
lanta. No passengers were re-
ported injured.
Authoritiesdsaid the would-be
hijacker, about 43, walked up toI
security guard George Rams-R
burg and shot him several times
in the back of the head.
The man then boarded the
plane, where the pilot and co-
pilot were shot, said Thomas
Farrow, special agent in charge
of the Baltimore office of the!
FBI.
THE HIJACKER was carrying
a briefcase later found to con-
tain a crudely made bomb con-
sisting of two one-gallons canis-
ters of gasoline and a rudimen-
tary detonating mechanism,
Farrow said. The bomb was lat-
er destroyed by demolition ex-
perts from the Army and state
police.
It was the first attempted air-
line hijacking in the Unitedj
States since January. The last
-- - - --

successful U. S. skyjacking 'was
in November, when a Southern
Airways DC-9 was hijacked on a
flight from Montgomery, Ala.,
and diverted to Havana by way
of Cleveland, Toronto, Havana,
Orlando, Fla., and then back to
Cuba. There have been 22 suc-
cessful hijackings overseas since
then.
THE FEDERAL Aviation Ad-
ministration (FAA) said it was
-listing the shoot-out as a hijack-
ing attempt, even though the air-
craftwas still on the ground and
the passengers still boarding it.
