Soviet party to elect leaders;
WASHINGTON (AP) - The Reagan
administration invoked yesterday a
freeze on hiring of public service
workers under the Comprehensive
Employment and Training Act.
The administration wants to phase
out some 340,000 federally subsidized
jobs in state and local government by
the end of the current fiscal year. It
notified regional administrators of the
Labor Department's Employment and
Training Administration that no new
jobs be filled under two programs
authorized by CETA - the Title II-D
March of Dimes
BIRTH DEFECTS FOUNDATION
and Title VI programs.
Some city officials seemed taken
aback by the hiring freeze because
President Reagan had said in his Feb.
18 message to Congress and the nation
that the two CETA jobs programs
would be phased out in Fiscal 1982,
beginning Oct. 1.
Jack Hashian, a spokesman for the
department's Employment Training
Administration, confirmed, however,
that an order carrying out the freeze
went out late last week.
In his budget message to Congress
last month, Reagan indicated that as
much as $635 million could be saved by
phasing out CETA jobs under the public
service categories by the end of the
current fiscal year on Sept. 30.
But an administration official, who
declined to be named publicly, said
yesterday that as much as $865 million
of the fiscal 1981's $2.9 billion ap-
propriated for public service jobs could
be saved because of the hiring freeze.

summit sought with U.S.
MOSCOW-As the 26th Soviet Communist Party Congress prepared to cast
ballots for a new party leadership, a leading Soviet spokesman said yester-
day that Washington and Moscow need not rush into a summit meeting but
should hold an "active dialogue" in preparation for such talks.
Soviet President Leonid Brezhnev proposed a summit with President
Reagan during Brezhnev's opening speech to the congress on Feb. 23.
Reagan said the next day that he was interested, but some congressional
leaders have said that the time is not right for a summit, and Reagan said
that he wanted to monitor Soviet behavior in El Salvador before committing
Jetliner hijacked to Afghanistan
ISIAMABAD, Pakistan-A political dissident hijacked a Pakistani jetliner
with 148 people aboard yesterday and forced it to land in Kabul, capital of
neighboring Afghanistan, the government said.
In Kabul, the passengers and crew left the plane and went into the ter- -
minal, airline officials said, but there was no word of the fate of the hijacker.v
Pakistan and the Kabul government are at odds over the Soviet presence in
A high Pakistani official would not say whether the hijacker had made any
demands, but an unconfirmed report said he was seeking the release of a
relative jailed in recent disturbances in Karachi, Pakistan's largest city.
Supreme Court ruling could
affect white collar workers
WASHINGTON-The Supreme Court said yesterday it will decide whether
workers with access to management's confidential files can join a labor
union, a case which could affect secretaries and thousands of other while
The justices said they will hear National Labor Board arguments aimed at
granting the right of union member ship to most workers.
The board is seeking to overturn a lower court ruling which barred anyone
dealing with confidential front office matters from union rolls.
The case stems from the firing of a Danville, Ind. secretary and the unsuc-
cessful attempt of 18 workers in Beaver Dam, Wis. to obtain union represen-
Testimony on attempted
military coup in Spain begins
MADRID, Spain-A government-appointed special prosecutor began
taking testimony yesterday from more than 20 right-wing military men ac-
cused of plotting last week's abortive attempt to overthrow Spain's civilian
The investigation began as Western diplomats and pro-government
military officials warned that right-wing military leaders might be plotting
a second attempt to seize power.
Some 200 members of the paramilitary Civil Guard stormed the
Parliament building a week ago and held the 350 members of the lover house
captive for 18 hours in an attempt to install a military regime in the manner
of Francisco Franco, who ruled the nation for 40 years until his death.
Bankrupt transit system idled
BIRMINGHAM, Ala.-Some 30,000 commuters scrambled for ways to get
to work yesterday because of a shutdown of the city's transit
system-bankrupt despite the nation's highest bus fares-80 cents a ride.
Transit officials estimate most of the riders were low-income laborers
from the black sections north and west of the city.
Due to declining ridership and an $800,000 deficit, the transit authority shut
down the 201 city buses at midnight Saturday, leaving the metropolitan area
of over 820,000 without bus service for the first time since 1972.
Key British Labor Party
members quit to form new party
LONDON-Twelve legislators and nine lords, declaring "we are on the
receiving end of a political earthquake," quit the opposition Labor Party
yesterday and announced plans to form a new Social Democrat Party within
The 21 dissidents constitute the first attempt in 60 years to fundamentally
realign British politics.
They said a vote to strip members of Parliament of the power to choose the
party leader, which means the country's prime minister if the party holds
the majority, was the last straw for them in a string of Labor's leftward lur-
ches, including votes for widespread nationalization, unilateral disar-
mament, and withdrawal from the Common Market.
