Inflation
rate rises,
food,
energy
costs e
From AP and UPI
WASHINGTON-Inflation con-
tinued to edge upward last month,
posting a 0.6 percent gain at the
wholesale level, while- unem-
ployment dropped slightly to 7.5
percent, the government reported
yesterday.
Sen. Lloyd Bentsen (D-Texas),
chairman of Congress' Joint
Economic Committee, said the
November figures were "good
tidings."
But private economists warned'
that both inflation and unem-
ployment will worsen in coming
months as food and-energy prices
resume their surge and the
economy's continued weakness
results in more layoffs.
Sandra Shaber, senior economist
at Chase Econometrics, predicted
an eight percent unemployment rate
by early next year. Rising mortgage
and interest rates already are'hur-
ting the housing industry and dam-
pening consumer sales, she said.
At worst, companies will cut back
production and lay off workers, she
said. At best, she added, they will
not hire even as the workforce ex-
pands.
The Labor Department reported
that total employment in November
rose to 97.4 million.

N. Carolina cheerleader

found slain 1
ROCKY MOUNT, N.C. (AP) - A drama student from
New York chose a quiet Methodist college in North Carolina
to avoid drugs and other perils of big city schools. When she
became a cheerleader, she planned to move into a dormitory
because she had to be out at night.
Her nude and battered body was found Thursday at a
rock quarry, her feet implanted in a cinder block, her head
bashed in.
A 23-YEAR-OLD unemployed man was ordered held
without bond yesterday, charged with the murder.
Whelette Collins, 20, and two other Wesleyan College
cheerleaders were abducted from the campus after a junior
varsity basketball game Wednesday night. The other women,
still dressed in their uniforms, escaped after hitting their
captor on the head with a tire tool.
They later led officers to the abandoned quarry where
Miss Collins' body was found, Halifax County Sheriff William
Bailey said.
Bailey said he arrested Kermit Smith, 23, of Roanoke
Rapids on Thursday morning as Smith was leaving the pit,
where he had apparently left his bloodstained car the night
before.

n quarry
SMITH APPEARED BEFORE a District Court judge in
Roanoke Rapids yesterday morning and was ordered held
without bond on charges of murder, rape and robbery. Bailey
said Smith, who lived with his mother, was on probation on a
1979 charge of breaking and entering and larceny.
Friends said because of her school activities, Collins, a
freshwoman from Ellenville, N.Y., had become concerned
about her safety and was planning to move from an aunt's
house in Rocky Mount into a dormitory.
C. L. Herndon, the aunt, said her niece, a theater major,
had made her debut as a Wesleyan cheerleader at Wed-
nesday night's game against Methodist College of Fayet-
teville.
Collins chose Wesleyan, a liberal arts college of 870
students affiliated with the United Methodist Church,
because of its location in a small town and her desire to avoid
problems such as drugs that she might find at a larger
school, Herndon said.
"She was a bookworm and an artist," Herndon said.
"She could draw anything she wanted to draw, she played
leading roles in all her plays, and she read everything she
could get her hands on.

Disease hits Italian quake area

i

NAPLES, Italy (AP) - Italian health
officials, alarmed by an outbreak of
typhoid and hepatitis, urged residents
of the snow-swept earthquake disaster
area of southtern Italy yesterday to
avoid using tap water and to be vac-
cinated.
The U.S. Embassy in Rome, mean-
while, announced in a delayed report
that four Americans had been killed in
the Nov. 23 quake. The quake took 3,076
lives, according to the military com-
mand's latest casualty list, which also
showed 1,575 missing and presumed
dead and 7,571 injured.
"In tent cities, there will be hundreds
of sick before too long," said San Carlo
Hospital Director Luigi Grassi in
Potenza, where six patients suffering

from viral hepatitis were being treated.
AUTHORITIES said five confirmed
cases of typhoid fever were reported in
Torre Annunziata near Naples and a
sixth at San Giorgio a Cremano. At
least three more cases of viral hepatitis
were reported in Naples.
Senior health officials said the
diseases had not reached an epidemic
proportion, but they were stepping up
massive inoculation programs. So far
161,270 people have been vaccinated by
medical teams which have traveled to
refugee camps throughout the quake
area.
Hundreds were also reported suf-
fering from bronchitis and other
respiratory ailments caused by ex-
posure to the cold and snow in the

disaster area. Heavy snow fell in
Avellino province yesterday, and the
national weather bureau forecast
"abundant" snow throughout the quake
area starting Saturday.
IN A controversial move, relief of-
ficials began confiscating empty apar-
tments and houses to accommodate
some of the 201,680 people living in tents
in the quake zone. More than 200 apar-
tments . were requisitioned in
Avellino.
The government appeared to be
changing its strategy in finding tem-
porary shelter for the homeless after it
failed to persuade them to move into
government-requisitioned hotels.
Fewer than 1,500 people have taken ad-
vantage of the relocation program in a
week.

IN BRIEF
Complied from Associated Press and
United Press international reports
Iraqi jets destroy Iranian
oil pipeline, Iran reports
BEIRUT, Lebanon-Iran said Iraqi bomber jets destroyed a main oil
pipline yesterday in a raid on the Iranian port of Bandar-Shahpur, and also
reported its jets and artillery to be pounding the Iraqi oil terminal of Fao for
the second day.
Iran said the Iraqis tried to shell a prayer congregation in Ahwaz, capital
of the southwestern oil-producing Khuzistan province. Three people were
killed and 23 wounded in the shelling, which missed its main target, the of-
ficial Pars news agency reported.
An Iraqi communique broadcast by Baghdad Radio said Iraqi forces killed
50 Iranian troops in day-long battles along various sectors of the border and
shot down five Iranian jets and one helicopter gunship. Iraqi losses as a
result of the day's fighting was put at 10 killed.
Iranian delay may imperil
'81 hostage settlement
WASHINGTON-The Carter administration has notified Iran that further
delay in reaching an agreement on the release of the 52 American hostages
could jeopardize chances for a settlement early next year, U.S. officials
said.
Even so, there is no sign yet of a breakthrough from Tehran and differen-
ces over the terms set by the Iranian Parliament more than a month ago
remain unresolved, the officials said.
The latest U.S. message-a five-page double-spaced explanation of legal
and technical problems-was delivered by Deputy Secretary Warren
Christopher to Algiers this week.
FBI probes arson at homes
for mentally retarded adults
DETROIT-The FBI says it may use the 1964 Civil Rights Act to in-
vestigate arson at two houses in suburban Detroit scheduled for use as group
homes for mentally retarded adults.
The most recent fire Thursday burned a two-story house in Taylor where
six mentally retarded men were to move Jan. 1. Fire Inspector David
Duperron said the fire caused about $15,000 damage.
Group homes intended for mentally disabled persons in Farmington Hills
and Troy have also burned down within the last three months.
The fires might be violations of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, which prohibits
discrimination in housing, an FBI official said.
El Salvador aid cut after
American women slain
SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador-The Roman Catholic Church arranged a
funeral mass yesterday for four slain American women-three nuns and a
social worker the government says were killed in a "premeditated murder
of the right wing."
A medical examiner's report said two of the women might have been
raped.
The United States announced it was suspending all military and economic
aid to this violence-ridden Central American nation until the circumstances
of the deaths are clarified. Monsignor John Roach, president of the National
Conference of Catholic Bishops of the United States, condemned the
slayings.
Reagan to meet with
prominent black leaders
WASHINGTON-Ronald Reagan will see a group of outspoken political
foes-the nation's black leaders-Thursday during his visit to Washington, it
was disclosed yesterday.
The meeting at Blair House will be the first the president-elect has had
with so many prominent blacks. Eighty-two percent of all black voters sup-
ported President Carter in the general election.
Reagan has acknowledged one-time opposition to the 1964 Civil Rights Act
barring bias in employment and public accomodations. It is considered the
single most important piece of civil rights legislation enacted this century,
and Reagan now says he believes it was a good bill.
Boston transit talks stalled
BOSTON-Massachusetts legislative leaders reported an impasse yester-
day in last-minute efforts to find ways to fund Boston's transit system and
head off a threatened shutdown'of service for 260,000 daily riders.
With stores prepared to begin opening Sundays for Christmas shoppers,
downtown merchants were among groups at the Statehouse pleading for a
compromise.
The state Supreme Court set midnight last night as a deadline for halting

service by the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority. The court ruled
that Gov. Edward King's takeover of the system was illegal and said buses
and trains could not operate further without a supplemental appropriation.
A conference committee representing both legislative chambers met but
did little beyond agreeing to further discussions.

unrest.
The summons so alarmed Poland's
independent union leaders that they
immediately issued a statement for-
bidding all "unauthorized" strikes for
the "good of the nation" and assuring.
Poles that no further labor actions were
foreseen.
Leaders of six of the seven Warsaw
Pact nations met in Bratislava,
Czechoslovakia, three weeks before the
1968 invasion of that country by the
Soviet Union and other pact nations
following reforms there.
In March, 1968, five months before
the invasion of Czechoslovakia, the
Warsaw Pact nations held another
meeting in Dresden, East Germany, in
which they expressed the belief that
"the working class and all the workers
of Czechoslovakia will assure the con-
tinuation of socialist construction under
the direction of the Czech Communist
Party."
The communique issued yesterday
said the meeting's participants "ex-
pressed the conviction that the Com-
munists, the working class, and all the
working people of fraternal Poland will
be able to overcome the difficulties that
have arisen and secure the further
development of the country along the
socialist road."

"I FORTUNATELY still have a job,

Ann Arbor resident Don Tilton also
said his holiday spending plans are
about the same as last year. "I think if
we had kids we would probably feel the
pinch a little more."
The wounded economy may even help
sales for some, according to Alice Plot-
ner, owner of Campus Bike 'n Toy. 'she
said she expects an increase in sales
this year due to the gas shortage.
JIM CALHOUN of Tice's Men's Shop

In the second Psalm God asks this question, and then
answers it. He tells who the heathen are, why they rage,
and the consequences. Webster says "a heathen is one
who does not believe in the God of the Bible." This
definition fits in with what God says in this Psalm. The
consequences are that God laughs at man's rebellion,
speaks in His wrath, holds them in derision and vexes in
His sore displeasure is not nearly the whole earth and the
inhabitants in a state ofvexation and fear?
It is the devil in men that cause them to rage against
God's Moral Law, His Ten Commandments! The devil,
God and man's enemy. Christians are not immune from
the devil entering into them. This statement is based on
the experience of The Apostle Peter whom Christ declared
"Blessed" because God had given a revelation as to

had gotten a vision of himself and had said to Him:
"Depart from me; for I am a sinful man, O Lord!" He was
seeking salvation, but even then he was in great danger
when the devil got in him.
(Today the church is lousy with those "who savorest
not of the things of God, but those that be of men,"
rejecting the plain teaching and truth of The Bible that
God's wrath fell on Christ to atone for the sins of all
mankind; provided they so accept Him, and it is to be
feared that they have no spiritual kinship at all with Peter.
The devil also entered into another of Christ's disciples,
held his ground, and finally carried him off to perdition a
traitor and suicide! He got into Judas because he was
self-seeking, covetous, a hog, a thief stealing from the
meager means of the little "splinter band" of Christ and
