In the news this morning

LONDON - Britain's minority Labor gov-
ernment suffered its third parliamentary de-
feat in three days yesterday, and aides to
Prime Minister Harold Wilson said he was
considering new elections. None of the defeats
involved a motion of confidence, and Wilson
was not required to resign. But after the gov-
ernment was turned down yesterday on a
minor issue, a proposal to amend a draft lot-
tery bill, Labor party floor manager Robert
Mellish declared: "This Parliament is no
longer feasible." Under the British system the
prime minister can call an election at any
time, but if he loses a motion of confidence
he is expected to do so promptly. On taking
office last March 4 Wilson had said he would
seek a new election only if he loses a vote of

WASHINGTON - Higher prices for medical
services, fresh vegetables and used cars con-
tributed to a 1.1 per cent increase in the cost
of living in May, the Labor Department re-
ported. The Consumer Price Index for May
showed prices were 10.7 per cent above a
year earlier. Just about everything except

meat and poultry increased in price during
the month.
ORLANDO, Fla - Inmates in U. S. prisons
are killing themselves at a'higher-than-civilian
rate despite the contention of penitentiary of-
ficials that convict suicide is not a major prob-
lem, two Florida sociologists reported. Drs.
Charles Unkovic and W. T. Austin of Florida
Technological University said their study of
prison suicide in America showed that inmates
are committing suicide at a rate 59 per cent
above the national average. Based on a survey
of 10 major male prisons across the country,
the two social scientists concluded that there
are 17.5 suicides per 100,000 prison inmates
as compared to 11 suicides per 100,000 of the
nation's population.

Probably not. All thingsconsidered you do
what you do pretty doggone well. After all, no one
has taken your job. And youd eating regularly.
But have you ever considered what doing your
job just a little better might mean?
Money. Cold hard coin of the realm.
If each of us cared just a smidge more about
what we do for a living, we could actually turn that
inflationary spiral around. Better products, better
service and better management would mean savings
for all of us. Savings of much of the cash and frayed
nerves it's costing-us now for repairs and inefficiency
-'Point two..By taking more pride in our work
we'll more than likely see America regaining its
strength inthecompetitive world trade arena. When
the balance of payments swings our way again we'll
allbe better off economically.
So yousee-theonly person who can really
do what you doany better is you.
