U.S. dollar crisis in Europe eased

jnews briefs
By The Associated Press
LESLIE BACON had direct knowledge of plans to firebomb
a New York City bank according to a federal judge who ordered
her to answer further questions before a federal grand jury yes-
terday.
"I believe she said at least five times to the grand jury that
she sat in on the planning of the bornbing," said Judge George
Boldt.
Bacon is being held as a material witness in connection with
the bombing of the U.S. Capitol in March.
BOMBERS struck yesterday at a utility company substation
and an oil refinery 450 miles apart in the latest of a long series
of explosive attacks on big business in California.
Investigators found no direct links among the bombings but
noted that offices of Standard Oil and the Bank of America were
the prime objectives of antiwar demonstrations in Los Angeles and
San Francisco on Wednesday.
THE RISE IN WHOLESALE PRICES accelerated in April,
according to a Labor Department spokesman.
The department said its wholesale price index advanced by
three-tenths of one per cent in April - a move generally viewed
as a setback to President Nixon's attempts to control inflation.
In more bad news for the economy, three major steel corpora-
tions, Republic, Jones and Laughlin and Armoc have matched the
614'per cent price increase of the biggest steelmaker, U.S. Steel.
A LOAN FOR LOCKHEED AIRCRAFT' totalling $250 million
was proposed by President Nixon to Congress yesterday despite
expected opposition,
Lockheed's troubles stem from soaring development costs for
the RB211 engine for its Tri-Star jumbo jet project. The cost of
development forced Roll-Royce, the contractor for the engine, into
receivership, and now threatens to tumble Lockheed.
Lockheed desperately needs the loan to "keep it from going
broke," Treasury Secretary John Connally told newsmen. He said
the economy needs a healthy Lockheed and the investment in mon-
ey and jobs in the Tri Star program.

"Homosexuality presents a major problem for our society largely
because of the amount of injustice and suffering entailed in it
not only for the homosexual but also for those concerned about
him ... . Homosexuality is often viewed with either disgust or
anxiety, emotions which interfere with an objective understand-
ng of the problem . . . Educational programs should both give
information and replace judgmental and condemnatory attitudes
with more objective attitudes.'
-Task Force Report on Homosexuality,
National Institute of Mental Health,
1969
